Inspiration vs Admiration

Inspiration comes from all sources
It can be a person, place or thing
It can be appreciating the sound of the rain
Or the sound of the water flowing down a spring
It can be having a roof over your head
Whether a mansion or a shack
Or just appreciating having a home
And a warm place or bed
It can be the smell of the roses in the morning
Or the breeze running across your face
Or giving money to a stranger
Just to make their day
It can be admiration for a person
Who makes you feel empowered
Or a simple laugh or smile
To make your day worthwhile
Inspiration and admiration
May sound the same
And can often misconstrued
Inspiration makes your heart smile
Admiration makes your brain work an extra mile.
I have many inspirations in my life
My family, my home, my job, my wife
Which all make me have a happy life.
I have admiration for past teachers, friends, my dr, my parents
Admiration for their support, guidance and their talents.
Inspiration and admiration
Two confusing words
In the end I guess they can be combined and called indmiration.
