(Poem for children)
What are you thinking, right now this minute,
Is it a good thought with you in it?
Or is it a thought that you are not good enough
You can’t do something because it’s too tough?
Are you thinking about having some fun
Playing with friends out in the sun?
Or are you thinking your friends won’t play
Because they were unkind to you yesterday
You might be thinking of your birthday treat
All the presents you’ll get and good things to eat
Or are you thinking your birthday is so far away
There is no point in getting excited today?
There are good thoughts and there are bad
Some make you happy and others make you sad
If you are not sure if one is good
Does it make you feel better, as it should?
Try always to do your best
To think good thoughts above the rest
Whatever you are thinking, you can change that thought
Into your mind, a better one is easily brought
Although there are two ways to think
What is most important is their special link
For the more often you think in one way
Will affect what you do, and what you say
Over time what you think is what you become
So think happy thoughts and you won’t be glum
Whatever you are thinking is important you know
For it will determine which way you will go
No matter what happens you have the choice
So listen to your friendly inner voice

About This Poem
One of the first poems I wrote ‘Where Is God?‘ was for children. I had not intentionally sat to write that poem many years ago, but it just came to me when my mind was drifting sat on a bus journey through the countryside. In 2013 I decided to have a go at writing some more poems for children that covered spiritual and law of attraction principles. My favourite one was ‘Why Did You Come Here?‘ and there was also one about reincarnation ‘Before We Were Born.’ This one was to teach children about the importance of their thoughts.
