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.

The promise of a New Year (poem)

A new year has arrived

The promise of a New Year

The promise of a New Year,
The promise of hope is near,
As the path into your future begins anew,
The promise of a fresh start,
The promise of a new part,
Where your role in life seeks out a different view.

A chance to let go the old,
A chance to clear out the cold,
To turn and seek a new life towards the light.
A chance to let sadness end,
A chance to become a friend,
To reach out to strangers who come into your sight.

Your life can turn a new page,
Step out of histories cage,
Open the door and see the dawn of a new day.
Place your feet on life’s new track,
Shake off the past from your back,
And let the promise of a new year guide your way.

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.

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.

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.

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.
