STROKES

Strokes,
Positive as well as negative,
Affect our emotional state:
Positive strokes make us purr,
Negative strokes make us snarl;
They can lift us up loftily,
And we can come tumbling down!
Kind and sincere strokes act as an encouragement,
Insincere ones are our pitfalls;
Sieve them through thoroughly,
Distinguish the positive and negative ones,
Work on the positive ones to further our endeavor,
Use the negative ones to check our progress;
Do not rest on the laurels of positive strokes,
Nor being crushed by negative ones,
These are just labels for our references,
Use our own standard to motivate ourselves,
Then all will be well!
