A Crack of Forgiveness (poem)

Open up your forgiveness

A Crack of Forgiveness

A crack of forgiveness,
Just a glimpse shining through.
A chance to readdress,
The pain living within you.

A chance to open up,
Unlock forgiveness’s door.
Retrieve forgiveness cup,
And hand it out once more.

A chance to bring healing,
To find where anger ends.
To once more start feeling,
That you can become friends.

A crack of forgiveness,
Can become a new sun.
Shining with hopefulness,
Against pain, you have won!

Please be at peace with me, my friend (poem)

Let’s become friends

Please be at peace with me, my friend

Please be at peace with me, my friend,
Even though strangers we may be.
Let our anger come to an end,
Let us set our harmony free.

Please come and sit with me, just here,
Let us spend time with each other.
Do not be afraid to come near,
Come, let us greet one another.

Please accept my hand of friendship,
Through the confusion of today.
From the cup of peace, let us sip,
Let our promises find a way.

Please talk to me about your ways,
Let me learn about how you live.
Let us talk of happier days,
With each other, learn to forgive.

Please now walk with me, by my side,
Let us find our way together.
Let understanding be our guide,
Let our peace remain forever.

Let the healing begin (poem)


It is time to heal.

This poem was written an hour ago, may it help.
Let the healing begin

Let the healing begin,
Let the sunshine back in,
Let it bring light back into our lives.
Let the darkness depart,
Let our life beat restart,
For through all that darkness, love survives.

Let our hearts start caring,
Let our peace start sharing,
Let our love mend the wounds of today.
Let hope open the door,
Let joy return once more,
And let kindness and love lead the way.

In troubled times, let peace find a way (a poem and a plea)


There is no happy future in anger.

In troubled times, let peace find a way

In troubled times, let peace find a way,
Let us treat one another as friends.
For if we cannot, then at the end of the day,
What we know as harmony, ends.
Instead of progress, our lives will decline,
Into a place full of anger and hate.
The ambassador of hope will resign,
Confused as to how we reached this state.

In troubled times, let’s find a way to heal,
To let go of the bitterness within.
Using words of peace, let us now deal,
So a path to harmony can begin.
No future is found within destruction,
No trust built whilst we are at war.
Let tomorrow bring one of construction,
Working together for peace once more.

Kindness has no barriers (poem)


In a broken world, let us be kind. 

Kindness has no barriers

Kindness has no barriers, there’s no surrounding wall,
You cannot lock it away behind an iron door.
Kindness has no prejudices, it is available to all,
You cannot hide it away beneath the kitchen floor.

Kindness is so gentle, as soft as a floating feather,
Landing gracefully upon a waiting outstretched hand.
Kindness is so strong, it can survive any weather,
With its strength you can help a fallen stranger to stand.

Let kindness be your guiding light whenever darkness falls,
For with it, you can let the light of love shine bold and bright.
Let kindness be your voice, letting others hear its calls,
For with it, you can guide them through the darkest night.

Kindness is the answer when there’s nothing else to be found,
Ready to be used in times when there is no other way.
Giving kindness to yourself, as well as to those around,
Will mend a broken life and help to bring a better day.

Am I a stranger or a friend? (poem)


Let friendship bring understanding into a world of differences.  

Am I a stranger or a friend?

I may have walked a different path, taken a different way,
I may have led a different life and seen a different day.
I may not have learnt with you, to see what you can be,
But does that make a difference between you and me?
So now I will ask of you, as this day comes to an end,
Just how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

Perhaps if I had known your way, had seen it long ago,
And decided that it was not for me, choosing not to know.
Then you could be right to say, that I am not like you,
To turn your face away from me and keep me out of view.
But I did not learn on your road, nor walk round a single bend,
So how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

I understand just what you say, I would like to know you more,
Perhaps if you would sit with me, there’s a seat just by the door.
Let me know of your life and I will tell you about my own,
Then after a day or two, our understanding will have grown.
Learn how to heal our wounds, to know where to stitch and mend,
And then, over time, change from a stranger into a friend.

Without Peace (World poem)


Without peace, it’s a hard life.
This poem compliments the ‘Without Blame’ poem.

Without Peace

Beyond peace, lives a time full of hope,
Beyond peace, is found a life full of care.
Found in a world where we can cope,
Found in a world of love we all share.

Before peace, anger will rule supreme,
Before peace, harmony cannot be.
Lost in a world without a dream,
Lost in a world that isn’t free.

Without peace, our lives are torn apart,
Without peace, tomorrow will be lost.
All there is to find is a broken heart,
The price of our harmony is the cost.

Let peace and love stretch out to one and all,
Before anger can get in the way.
Together, we can break down any wall,
Together, we can build a better day.

Without Blame (World poem)


Without blame, we can find peace.
This poem compliments the ‘Without peace’ poem.

Without Blame

Beyond blame, lives a time without hope,
Beyond blame, is found a life without care.
Lost in a world that cannot cope,
Lost in a world that’s going nowhere.

Before blame, can forgiveness begin,
Before blame, can understanding heal.
Found in a world where hope can win,
Found in a world where love can feel

Without blame, we can work together,
Without blame, we can all find a way,
To get us through this stormy weather,
Leading us all to a brighter day.

Let calmness lead us to renew,
The goodness found within humankind.
Together, we can all get through,
Together, a peaceful world we can find.

A Helping Hand (poem)


We could all do with a helping hand.

A Helping Hand

A helping hand can be given during times of great need,
A chance to help friends and strangers, by doing a good deed.
You may not know just what it is for them that you can do,
But they will know just what they need, to help to get them through.

A helping hand can fix and mend something that is broken,
Guided on what they need, from the words that they have spoken.
Maybe a shelf has slipped, or there’s a problem with their door!
Soon you give them a smile, which tells them all is well once more.

A helping hand can fetch and carry items for someone,
Moving things from room to room, or getting their shopping done.
Once the task’s completed and there is nothing more to do,
You can relax, have a drink and eat a biscuit (or two.)

A helping hand comes as a pair, twice as much you can give!
By their actions, your hands will help others to cope and live.
Stretch out your hand whenever you see something you can do,
Then in your times of need, others will do the same for you.

You are my sister, you are my brother (poem)


A message of unity for the world.
pond dipping 1 - web


You are my sister, you are my brother

You are my sister, to one family we belong,
You are my brother, and together we are strong.
We are the keepers, we have one world for which to care,
We are the lovers, we have one life we can all share.

Tomorrow will come, we need to seek out the right path,
Tomorrow is ours if, instead of tears, we learn to laugh.
One life we all have, with it we can learn to forgive,
One earth we all know, and the only world where we live.

We have just one chance, to give our children a tomorrow,
We have just one life, to bring happiness and not sorrow.
Will we let it all end? A world where nothing is alive,
Or will we become friends? So this precious world can survive.
