It's A Sign

It's just a simple sign;
the only adornment on 
a big white stucco wall.
Who knows how many people
drive past it every day
and don't invest the tiniest
slice of time or ounce of energy
in taking notice, much less truly appreciating
the artistry and craftsmanship
that went into creating it
and installing it?
Like the people in our lives;
how often do we take a moment
to consider the factors,
the circumstances,
the successes and failures
and near-hits,
the dreams, hopes, ambitions,
that have made a person
who they are?
Affirm someone today
with a smile, a helping hand,
a word of encouragement.
