With Safety in Mind

With Safety In Mind...

I wish I would have taken the time...
To come to work,
with safety in mind!

That moment I became briefly distracted...
I didn't know how others
would be affected.

I soon realized what had taken place.
And there was sadness upon my face.

A person was hurt, and it was
later explained.
This person would never
be quite the same!

I thought about this incident over again...
How could this happen
to my friend?

As the days went by,
it became evident
I need to practice a safe

The safety rules, we must not ignore!
It was for everyone, that they're meant for!

I'm daily reminded to be safety driven...
If I want to improve my way of livin.'

May I stay focused and give
my full attention.
To whatever I'm doing,
in a safe direction!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
