Aims for today

Posted by Bill


I’ve found some aims, just right for me.
They’re part of my philosophy.
They are my life and what I do.
So now I’ll share my aims with you.

My one first aim is to ‘be there’.
So I can care and I shall share.
If I can be both fair and kind.
This should stay within your mind.

I aim to be consistent and stable.
More genuine than anyone is able.
And if you let me get this near.
I will be honest and sincere.

I’ll treat you non-judgementally.
And listen empathetically.
And whilst I won’t be deferential.
I’ll try to keep things confidential.

I will enable and empower.
Helping self-help seeds to flower.
I will achieve my aims today.
If people grow to be this way.

Unconditional positive regard.
Some find this aim is very hard.
But as far as I recall.
I have not found it hard at all.

Respect represents such fertile seeds.
Fostering fine feelings for people’s needs.
I encourage spirituality.
For your individuality.

I find my aims are not that wearing.
When firmly focussed on my ‘caring’.
For in my life I’ve always found.
My principles and aims are sound.
