People are powerful.
As people we have this gift and this almost super power (as I see it) to make someone else's day better, to change someone else's life, or to even make someone cry.
We are basically a creation to do good (though I guess that can be argued, I am not going to go down that road)

Every person we walk past down the street has a story.
They have a past.
They have demons hanging up to never appear again.
They have insecurities.
Each person you walk past has a family.
They have a mother and a father.
They have joy that has come into their life.
Each person you pass has a journey that they are on.
To fulfill their dreams and live their life happily and in peace.

However, we are human we make mistakes, we hit rough patches, and we find little pot holes in the road in which we didn't expect.
And some times we try to make it out alone, we think that we can do it.
That being alone will solve all of the little bumps and bruises that have found their way into your life.
Sometimes we even run away from people because we just want to be alone because we don't know what else to do.

Yet, there are those people, those thick headed, stubborn people who know that you need someone, you need someone to not talk about the issue at hand to not point out how you got into this figurative pot hole.
They just know you need a friend.
Someone to see movies with, someone to stay up late with and talk about silly things like cat videos on YouTube or whether when turtles bring their heads into their shells if their spines buckle or contract (Kurt Vonnegut reference).

What's so great about people is that there are those who come into your life as little gifts.
We don't ask for these gifts but they appear.
Sometimes, people bring light to a situation. Just by being someone's friend.
Because whats so great about people is that no person is the same.

We are all weird, we are all a little strange, and we all have a past.
To judge would make us hypocrites.

Sometimes, people are just little gifts that never fade.
Pretty incredible when you really think about it.

You are someones gift.
