A day of my own to enjoy (poem)

The freedom of a day

A day of my own to enjoy

Let the breeze blow through my hair,
Upon this day, clear and bright.
My time is my own to bare,
I am off to find some new sight.

Maybe a walk to the park,
With its woodlands by the lake.
There’s hours yet before its dark,
And plenty of paths to take.

There’s a one-day antiques fair,
With stalls in the playing field.
I could wander around there,
And see what goodies they yield.

I could treat myself to tea,
There’s that canal pub to try.
Let them bring the food to me,
As I watch the boats go by.

Perhaps I’ll head to the beach,
And walk barefoot in the sand.
That old lighthouse, I could reach,
If I walk round the headland.

I could go to the cliff top,
In time to watch the sunset.
At the food van I could stop,
Where a coffee I can get.

In the end it matters not,
Which out of all these, I choose.
For this free day I have got,
So in the end, I cannot lose.

Kindness, A user’s guide (poem)

Let kindness guide you

Kindness, a user’s guide

Within us all, kindness can be found,
Take a piece and add it to your day.
It’s with you, wherever you are bound,
Let kindness guide you along your way.

But how can you find it when you’re lost?
Is it there amid uncertainty?
Know this, that kindness comes at no cost,
It’s found all around, because it’s free.

Even within emptiness, it lives,
Even in confusion, it will grow,
Even in times of hardship, it gives,
The light of kindness, always on show.

Kindness can appear within a smile,
At a moment when someone’s in need.
That tells them their struggle is worthwhile,
And that one day soon, they will succeed.

Kindness can be a hand reaching out,
Or a gesture that says it’s okay.
Kindness can restore hope lost in doubt,
And can help others to find their way.

Kindness can come with a gentle voice,
Giving encouragement to be strong.
Saying that there is a better choice,
To not give up, to just carry on.

Kindness is a gift for you to share,
That once given, may then fade from view.
And yet, kindness never leaves you there,
For kindness always returns to you.

Strangers in a common world (poem)

Different and yet so much in common

Strangers in a common world

I can never be you and you can never be me,
The images that pass through your eyes, I cannot see.
The thoughts that pass through your mind, the ideas that you seek,
Will follow their own light and be forever unique.

I can only be me and you can only be you,
Each one of us is born with different points of view.
We each have our own methods of getting through a day,
We each have our own life to live, our own words to say.

But this world that we live on, is one that we all share,
Common to us all, a place for which we should all care.
We share the same sights when we are standing together,
Seeing the same landscape, and sharing the same weather.

Different views we may have, but together we can talk,
Different lives we may have, but together we can walk.
We can bring who we are, everything we can give,
And with love, patience, and kindness, in peace we can live.

Why Me? (poem)


We can find a way towards a new life.

Why Me?

Why me? Upon this tired day,
Are the only words I want to say?
It feels today that all has gone wrong,
And in my life, I do not belong.

Upon this seat I now sit and stare,
And think of the life that once was there,
When blue skies ruled and the birds did fly,
And the sun rose gloriously up high.

Now it seems that everything’s gone grey,
My life has gone a different way.
That all my plans have fallen through,
Where, my world once bright, is now so blue.

But have I really got this view right?
Are my dreams truly out of sight?
This may not be the future I planned,
But this is my life, where I now stand!

I do not have to sit here and cry,
But instead, look up at that dark sky,
And seek for the stars that live up there,
And let them guide me to, who knows where?

Perhaps I may find a better path,
That will lead me to where I can laugh.
That those first plans were not right for me,
So let’s start walking and go and see.

Humanities Plea (poem)


Let’s remember our human self and others. 

Humanities plea

Let’s abandon today and leave yesterday behind,
Run away from the future and step out of our mind,
Offload all the stress, remove the fragments of pain,
Unpack all our happiness and start living again.

Let’s fold away tension and tuck it safely away,
Open up childhood memories and learn how to play,
Wipe clear all that anger that blinds us from the truth,
Throw out that bitterness that destroys our inner youth.

Let’s remember that we are all just one human race,
That we all share the same world, in this time and place,
Let compassion and truth be our soul’s inner guide,
That confusion and fear, from our love, can never hide.

Let’s give out our humanity and share all our dreams,
Let’s repair the hurt, so it does not split at the seams,
Let’s hold onto harmony when clouds of hate rush by,
And hoist up the flag of love, for love can never die.
