I am a cheer leader (poetry)

I am a cheer leader

here to celebrate your victories

creating the party.


I am a cheer leader

here with gentle support

when the world offers only icy stares

creating a warm soft place to land.


I am a cheer leader

offering kindness,

creating space for you to be your best.


I am a cheer leader

knowing that positive energy

multiplies in the universe; hopefully

creating a better world.

I was inspired to write this poem by a few different conversations recently about how we are not in competition with each other and the need for more kindness in the world. The photo was taken from my balcony after a hailstorm yesterday afternoon.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.
