A Gift to Pass On
by Jason Tomlinson

What is all this for if not to bless?
the technology the creativity is much more than less
an avenue through which the masses can be inspired
empowered for greatness and ultimately hired
by the passion from within the drive from their core
that defining action that they were created for
I feel it when my expression breaks through someone’s day
that otherwise was headed down a bad way
but a word or a motion helped them hold on
to something deep inside that was never really gone
I feel it when when I see the lights come on in their mind
when clarity clears ambiguity and sight comes to the blind
when I do anything that gets the spotlight off of me
onto others who are much more brave and courageous than I could ever be
all of this that we’re given from the best to the worst
is a gift to pass on and put others first
