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.

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.

The awareness of everything (poem)

Seeing all and being you

The awareness of everything

The awareness of who you are within,
That person you live with every day.
That with you, today’s adventures begin,
That with you, the path of life shows the way.

The awareness of those all around you,
Of the strangers and the friends you will meet.
Of the joy and sadness others go through,
As you pass them by, walking down life’s street.

The awareness of the world where you live,
That sustains you from birth until death calls.
That as well as taking, you learn to give,
That you should help the world up, when it falls.

The awareness of everything there,
Inside, outside, and the world all around.
That it’s up to you to become aware,
To understand and let kindness be found.

The awareness that the future is you,
That in every action, changes start.
Let your awareness guide your own life’s view,
Then towards a better world, play your part.

It is Christmas Day (poem)

Christmas Day is here

It is Christmas Day

It is Christmas Day and Father Christmas has been,
Just by the bed a Christmas stocking can be seen.
Within it there are sweets, plus some toys they can play,
Such a wonderful beginning to Christmas Day.

The turkey’s in the oven, cooking nice and slow,
With lots more food prepared, it’s all ready to go.
Such a feast set before us, upon the table,
There is so much food to eat, will I be able?

In the Afternoon, more family come around,
Then, under the Christmas tree, more presents are found!
Keenly they are unwrapped, happiness is let out,
Joyfulness and laughter is floating all about.

Games are played round the table, Toys are on the floor,
A blue racing car comes whizzing through the hall door.
The teddy bears have been put to bed on the chairs
Except for one that is found sitting on the stairs.

Evening brings a calmness, time to just sit around,
After such a busy day, peacefulness is found.
The children are ready for their beds once again,
Christmas Day departs, but the memories remain.

The gift of giving at Christmas (poem)

There is so much you can give at Christmas

The gift of giving at Christmas

The gifts sit upon the table awaiting my attention,
With wrapping paper and red ribbon scattered everywhere.
Checking my Christmas lists, has everyone had a mention?
I am pretty certain there is no one missing off of there.
There are the ones for the family, with those I shall begin,
Then comes the one for the friends that I have met along the way.
A couple of hours later and I’m beginning to win.
Not long now until they will all be ready for Christmas Day.

At last! They are wrapped and stacked, but it isn’t over yet,
(I shall just have a short break and grab something nice to eat)
For I have a special heap that’s meant for those that we forget,
For charities to share with lonely strangers I’ll never meet
These presents are quite simple, nothing grand or overstated,
But it will give Christmas to a person who’s alone somewhere.
Christmas brings the gift of giving, a day to be celebrated,
Christmas brings the gift of letting the world know that you care.

Three wishes for your sadness (poem)

My wishes for your healing

Three wishes for your sadness

I am wishing that today you find a smile within you,
A day that is full of sunshine, with clear skies in view.
A day where harmony and peace are floating all around,
A day full of joyfulness, and where happiness is found.

I am wishing that you will discover upon this day,
That there is a better life for you, a much better way.
That there is just here, a path to lead you back to the light,
That will bring you back into a world so alive and bright.

I am wishing for you that your tomorrow will bring,
A world where your hope can, once more, take off on a wing.
A world where you land safely with your feet on the floor,
A world where I can hear your laughter ring out once more.

I am making for you a gift of these three wishes,
And wrapping them all up with lots of love and kisses.
Please accept them from me and then unwrap them just here,
They are to be stored in your heart, kept forever near.

A Reflection of Beauty (poem)


Where can beauty really be found?

A Reflection of Beauty

The person in the mirror who is looking back at me,
Must be myself, for there is no one else it can ever be.
Every curve, every bump, everything there is true,
And there is no possible chance that it could ever be you.
But what does it matter, that reflection I see in there?
It means nothing at all, no matter how long I stand and stare.
Whether I am tall or short, overweight or very thin,
It is within my heart that the echoes of myself begin.
It is only the surface of me that is reflected back,
For the beauty of my true self, does that reflection lack.

My true self can be seen in all that I do and in what I say,
The kindness that I give to others I may met upon this day.
My thoughtfulness in any deeds for those around me that I do,
All show the person that I truly am, to others and to you.
If I can make someone laugh once more, when they are feeling low,
If I can encourage someone, when their life is running slow.
If I can pick someone up and carry them that extra yard,
If I can make someone’s life easier, when their life becomes hard.
Then beautiful is what I am, for my beauty spreads right through,
If all you see is the surface, then I have only pity for you.

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.

A carton of Kindness (poem)


Sharing out kindness

A Carton of Kindness

I have some cartons of kindness,
Please do come and get one today.
They are all made from helpfulness,
And filled with kind words to say.

They contain good deeds of all sorts,
Mixed together with a gentle touch.
There’s a sprinkling of kind thoughts,
Of those, you can never have too much!

There are plenty here for you to share,
With anyone else who’s around.
Just let them know that you are there,
And that with you, kindness can be found.

It’s price is just a piece of your heart,
With a bit of tenderness as well.
There’s enough here to fill any cart,
And it costs you nothing at all to resell.

So come and pick up a carton today,
Add it to your list of things to do!
Then share it as you go on your way,
And help to make this a kinder world too.

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.
