Said a Blade of Grass

Several weeks ago, I ran across this post about Kahlil Gibran and his poem “Said a Blade of Grass”.¬†I can appreciate the point to the post as well as the poem, even though I’d never heard of this particular poet before. It got me thinking, and that’s the door where understanding can come in…

I believe many people suffer from a difficulty to love themselves, and many may not even realize this is a core problem to their unhappiness. But, when I decided to start writing my take on the subject, I ran into some trouble…
