The path that is right for me (poem)


Be your true self.

The path that is right for me

I have chosen the path that’s the right one for me,
For it is the one that is closest to my heart.
It is the one upon which my spirit feels free,
And in truth, I have traveled along from the start.

There have been times when I may have drifted away,
There have been times when other paths I have found.
But not for long, upon them do I ever stray,
Before my feet decide they should turn me around.

My mind may get lost every now and then,
My thoughts stray from this person just here.
But somehow, my soul seems to know just when,
It is time for my heart to take over and steer.

Taking me away from all this falseness within,
Away from where the pain and heartaches go.
Back to my own path, so I can once again begin,
To be the one person that I truly know.

Love and Kindness hand in hand (poem)


Helping the world around us.

Love and Kindness hand in hand

Upon the road of life, love and kindness go strolling hand in hand,
And in our times of strife, they will work together to save our land.
Stretching out to us all, wrapping humanity within their embrace,
Peace and calm come to call, when love and kindness enter the place.

Kindness seeks out our fears, beside it love carries a guiding light,
They will help dry our tears, helping us to get through our darkest night.
Kindness will endure the pain, for love gives it the strength to survive,
Together they will remain, keeping humanities hopes alive.

Faithful to us they stay, for in sad times they are our truest friends,
Helping us find our way, until the battle with hate and anger ends.
We can assist them too, by letting them guide us through this sorrow,
Helping others get through, let our love and kindness build tomorrow.

Let peace find a way (poem)


Being peace to those around you

Let peace find a way

Let peace find a way,
Throughout this new day,
Let love find a place in your life.
Let forgiveness win,
Share peace from within,
And let harmony replace strife.

Show others you care,
That you will be there,
When this day brings troubles to them.
Where discord if found,
Then turn it around,
And let peace shine bright, like a gem.

Sending a hug (poem)


A little comfort in your time of need

Sending a hug

I am sending a hug to you on this day,
A little comfort coming from me to you.
To let you know that you are not far away,
In my thoughts, for what you are going through.

No words can I say that will ease your sorrow,
Nor any help I can give to guide your way.
So a hug I send for now and tomorrow,
A little comfort to help you through each day.

Through troubled times I will walk beside you (poem)


I will help you to get through

Through troubled times I will walk beside you

Through troubled times I will walk beside you,
I will give a helping hand,
And if upon the road of life, you stumble,
Then I will help you to stand.

Through the trials and troubles we meet in life,
I will be there night and day,
And when upon life’s road, there is only strife,
Then I will seek a better way.

Through the struggles and hardships we must face,
I will bring hope to your door,
And then we can go searching to find a place,
Where harmony lives once more.

Through love and kindness, compassion and hope,
I will share my heart with you,
And so upon the road of life, we will cope,
As we find our way to the new.

Within ourselves there is a way (poem)


In troubled times there is still love.

Within ourselves there is a way

Within ourselves there is a way,
That takes us through every day.
That shows us all where we should start,
And begins within our beating heart.
This lets us know we are alive,
And says to us, we can survive!
That we can choose to be true,
To ourselves and the world in view.
That we can move and lend a hand,
Helping those with no strength to stand.

But what if we are weak and lost,
And feel that caring has a cost.
That we cannot walk for ourself,
But just sit quietly on a shelf.
Just watching as the world go by,
Afraid to give another try.
And yet
 from that place, we can see,
That within our heart, our love is free.
Love has wings and is light and fast,
So throw it to all those, who go past.

Take a moment to smile (poem)


A smile can make such a difference to our lives.
(This is a double rhyme poem)

Take a moment to smile

Take a moment to smile, just here in this place,
And after a while, it will cheer up your face.
Now spread it around for anyone to see,
Let it be easily found by others, for free!

If your smile finds another, that it can reach out to,
Then you can help each other, on this day, to get through.
For a smile will bring hope, in those times of great sorrow,
Helping us to cope and find a better tomorrow.

Take a moment to smile, let it enter within,
When facing a sad trial, it will help you to win.
It will lighten your load, releasing your sadness,
Brightening up life’s road, with a touch of gladness.

For a smile can help all, both inside and out,
Gives us strength to stand tall, helps us to tackle our doubt.
If it is too hard to do, just go for a grin,
Then let it seep through you, and your smile will begin.

Waking up in a new day (poem)


A new day brings a freshness into our life.

Waking up in a new day

Waking up each day allows a new life to begin,
Bringing a fresh chance to change this world we live in.
Whatever the dawn, we begin with a new view,
Whatever this day brings, we are beginning anew.
Whatever happened yesterday
 is now in the past,
This day brings new hope for a future that can last.

Open your eyes and wake up within this new light,
Let yesterday’s shadows fade back into the night.
Let today bring the wonders of a world we can share,
Let tomorrow’s dreams show us the best way to get there.
Whatever this day’s ending, let one thought remain,
We have the beauty of this world to wake to again.

Helping a world in trouble (poem)


In times of crisis, we can help each other.

Helping a World in Trouble

When troubles come to our door, when the world has gone astray,
When yesterday is no more, and the future’s lost its way.
When no one knows what to do, other than just to wait and see,
When we’ve lost our way through, and do not know what to be.

We can live within today, look for where the needs are now,
Help others to find their way, even if we are not sure how.
This moment is for giving, a chance to help where we can,
For our life is for living, and helping our fellow man.

It may not be an easy choice, it may seem hard for today,
But if others hear your voice, then you can help guide their way.
If you can keep on going, clearing the path as you do,
Then to others you are showing, that there is a way through.

These troubles will pass one day, and our life will recover,
For now, just do what you may, and then you will discover,
That this world we can restore, a better future we can find,
That we can move on once more, with our lives recombined.

New Years hopes and resolutions (poem)


Let the New Year bring positive changes.

New Years hopes and resolutions

Let this new year be the beginning of a new life,
Where hope can be found upon the dawn of each new day.
Where inner courage can be found to face any strife,
And that through the toils and troubles, I will find a way.

Let kindness and compassion find a path through me,
Let forgiveness bring peace to my world once more.
Let understanding and clear sight allow me to see,
Those who struggle, so I can bring them safely to shore.

And as this new year begins to mature and grow old,
Let my actions bring hope to this world all around.
So that by the years end, there are stories to be told,
Of my acts of love and kindness, that others have found.
