Hope can be found when all else is lost (poem)

You are never without hope

Hope can be found when all else is lost

Hope can be found when all else is lost,
For its seeds are found within your heart.
Hope has no price, it comes without cost,
For it’s been in your heart from the start.

Hope can be grown in any climate
Through a raging storm, it will survive
In darkness, hope seeds can germinate,
In emptiness, hope seeds can still thrive.

Hope can be carried throughout hard times,
It places no weight upon your life.
Through your darkness, the bell of hope chimes,
Guiding you through your troubles and strife.

Hope can be shared, you can let it go,
For when released, some hope will remain.
Within your heart, your hope will regrow,
And all that was shared out, you regain.

Hope can be forever, always near,
It never quite fades out of your view.
Just rest, and its strength will reappear,
Just stand up, and let its dreams guide you.

Starting a new life, part 3, arrival (poem)

This is part 3 of 3, part 1, the preparation, and part 2, the journey, are in the previous blogs

A new life found

Starting a new life, part 3, the arrival

I have arrived at a beginning, a new life to start,
A new world to explore that, from my past stands far apart.
On the edge of this new life, I can feel both hope and fear,
How will this new life treat me? Can I let this unknown near?
The sun has risen upon me, giving a clearer view,
It’s time to stop this hesitating, time to trust the new.

There is a place here for me, and off to there I shall go,
Then once I’ve unpacked my bits, this life I will get to know.
New people for me to meet, new places for me to see,
For a while I’ll just drift around, peacefully and carefree.
Then comes the challenge, to build a life where I will fit in,
So let’s find what I can do, and where my kindness can win.

Happiness is a moment away, inside us it sits,
It follows on from kindness, in its silhouette it fits.
Giving a part of myself, sharing myself where there’s need,
Will bring new life to me, growing in my heart as a seed.
Knowing that I make a difference, is my life’s new start,
But wherever you look, somewhere in life you play a part

Starting a new life, part 2, the journey (poem)

This is part 2 of 3, part 1, the preparation, and part 3, the arrival, are in adjacent blogs

Life on the move

Starting a new life, part 2, the journey

This journey towards a new life, is more than just a place,
If I want a new life, it’s my emotions I must face.
They are the greater challenge, to become better within,
And releasing all my anger, is where I shall begin.
I will not take it with me, as I travel round each bend,
I will find my peace, before this journey comes to an end.

I shall discard the bad memories, make space for the new,
Find the beauty in this world, enjoy all thats comes in view.
When I cross a bridge, I will toss my prejudices away,
I will pick up understanding, as I walk through this day.
If I meet a stranger, could I turn them into a friend?
There’s so much to learn, before this journey comes to an end.

I will let my hope set sail, let it seek the good in life,
Collect the strength to carry on, to cope with all my strife.
To seek a kinder world, a better life for me to live,
So much has life to offer, and so much have I to give.
I will seek a place to share my love, where my wounds can mend,
It’s coming into view, as this journey comes to an end.

Starting a new life, part 1, preparation (poem)

This is part 1 of 3, part 2, the journey, and part 3, the arrival, will appear in the next 2 blogs

Preparing for your life to change

Starting a new life, part 1, preparation

A new life will be starting, with the ending of this day,
The life that I once knew, has now been safely packed away.
The life that is to follow it, is hovering close by,
And with tomorrow’s sunrise, bring clarity to the sky.
My life’s in preparation, there’s just one more night to go,
In those first hints of dawn, a new life I will start to know.

Just for now I must be patient, to sort out what to take,
What will travel with me, on this journey that I will make.
So much I’ll leave behind, with some things I’ll never finish,
As slowly into my past, their presence will diminish.
For in tomorrow, a new life is waiting to unfold,
And with its coming, a new story ready to be told.

This long night has now ended, tomorrow has now begun,
The promises of this new day, kissed by the rising sun.
My new life is beginning, I am setting off at last,
It’s unfolding there before me, it’s time to leave my past.
Time to take the bits I’ve chosen, time to be on my way,
I’ll leave the rest behind, for they’re now part of yesterday.

Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose (poem)

Life has its ups and downs

Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose

Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose,
What comes next is for you to choose.
You could leap up and fly through the sky,
You could sit down and begin to cry.
You could open the door, give a cheer,
Or shut the door and let no one near.

When you are winning, enjoy the day,
Enjoy the changes it brings your way.
Laugh for a while, but let’s not forget,
All of those challenges that you met.
Remember that others must still fight,
Be kind to them, when they are in sight.

When you are losing, it will not last,
That one day this will be in your past.
Life’s ups and down we must all go through,
Just keep on going, seek out the new.
Hold on to your hope, reach out your hand,
Let others help you, once more, to stand.

Whether winning or losing in life,
Whether life’s easy or full of strife,
Kindness and hope are there deep within,
With both of those, let your day begin.
Let them shine through, let them guide your way,
For always, they bring a better day.

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.

Oh no! Where do I go? (poem)

Finding a way

Oh no! Where do I go?

Oh no! Where do I go?
Look right, nothing’s in sight,
Look left, it’s all bereft.
Look high, it’s all just sky,
Look low, nothing below.
It’s clear, there’s nothing here!

What now! Get out somehow?
Where to? nothing’s in view,
Which way? Best not to stray,
Let’s muse, how do I choose?
Just start, follow your heart,
Just be, time to step free.

Let’s go! So much to know,
Learn more, go out the door.
Look far, search for a star,
Walk fast, release the past.
Just run, go have some fun,
Stand still, life can be real.

Look round, A path is found!
New way, a better day.
New light, new hope’s in sight,
Move on, start to feel strong.
Just smile, life is worthwhile,
Be you, your life renew.

Courage within troubled times (poem)

Your courage is there

Courage within troubled times

Within the troubles of today, comes the sorrows of tomorrow,
When harmony has lost its way, and there’s no peace you can borrow.
When all around are shedding tears, and forgiveness cannot be found,
All you see is a world of fears, everywhere you look around.

Just look within and you will see, a place where your soul can retreat,
Where you can set your spirit free, to keep you standing on your feet.
Your inner courage can come out, your inner peace can bring you calm,
Your inner hope clear out your doubt, your inner self kept safe from harm.

The outer world’s fallen apart, so within yourself just hold tight,
Within yourself just hear your heart, and let it bring to you some light.
Let it show your courage the ways, you can make changes here and there,
To guide you through these troubled days, to let others know that you care.

I do not have to be the best (poem)

There’s nothing wrong with just being yourself

I do not have to be the best

Must I be the best? Can I not just rest?
What is wrong with this life I have now found?
I could climb higher, become a flyer,
But I like having my feet on the ground.

Must I run ahead? Jump out of my bed,
Every morning, must I start life fast?
If I stand behind, more peace I might find,
Perhaps a tranquil moment that will last.

I see a bright light, filling up my sight,
Saying to me ‘here fame and glory be.’
But all that I find, is that I am blind,
And life’s beauty I can no longer see.

I quite like my life, there’s not too much strife,
I have enough to be content right here.
For here I can smile, and rest for a while
Going slow to let contentment stay near.

Oh no! Where do I go? (poem)


What to do when you are lost

Oh no! Where do I go?

Oh no! Where do I go?
Which of these footpaths should I take?
Go right? What’s now in sight?
Which of these choices should I make?

Just sit, rest for a bit,
Just take a moment to be still.
Sit back, life’s not so black,
Let the world walk pass as it will.

Look high, see a blue sky,
For beyond grey clouds it is blue.
Look low, see the plants grow,
Nature’s world is now in your view.

Sunlight, is now in sight,
It’s coming to where you now are.
Moonlight, fills up the night,
Just relax and look at your star.

New hope, you can now cope,
Within you there’s the path you need.
Look in, life can begin,
Within you there grows a new seed.

Stand up, drink from life’s cup,
You are all that you need to be.
Just go, your life to know,
Enjoy life, be kind and be free.
