Kindness, A user’s guide (poem)

Let kindness guide you

Kindness, a user’s guide

Within all of us, kindness can be found,
Just take a piece and add it to your day.
Keep it with you, wherever you are bound,
And let kindness guide you along your way.

So how can you find it when you are lost?
Can it be found amid uncertainty?
Know this, that kindness comes without a cost,
It is found all around, because it’s free.

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

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

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

Kindness is found within a gentle voice,
Giving them encouragement to be strong.
Saying to them there is a better choice,
To not give up and just to carry on.

Kindness is a gift there for you to share,
That once given, may fade away from view.
Yet, kindness never leaves you standing there,
For kindness is still living within you.

We are the Earths Guardians (poem)

The Earth is in our care

We are the Earths guardians

There is just one Earth, a world where we all live,
A beautiful place that has so much to give.
A spinning rock of life going round the sun,
And across its lands, wild animals run.
Within its oceans, the fish go swimming by,
Above its oceans, the albatrosses fly.

Among the creatures on this beautiful place,
There is one that calls itself the human race.
Unique upon this earth, free to move around,
In every part of the Earth, we are found.
Every sea we have crossed to lands anew,
Every continent we have travelled through.

We can touch every creature, learn their way,
Understand their lives and watch their young play.
We can change the landscape, change all that we see,
Only humankind has this ability.
We are the Earth’s guardians, to love and care,
To look after this world that all creatures share.

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.

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.

You are my sister, you are my brother (poem)


A message of unity for the world.
pond dipping 1 - web


You are my sister, you are my brother

You are my sister, to one family we belong,
You are my brother, and together we are strong.
We are the keepers, we have one world for which to care,
We are the lovers, we have one life we can all share.

Tomorrow will come, we need to seek out the right path,
Tomorrow is ours if, instead of tears, we learn to laugh.
One life we all have, with it we can learn to forgive,
One earth we all know, and the only world where we live.

We have just one chance, to give our children a tomorrow,
We have just one life, to bring happiness and not sorrow.
Will we let it all end? A world where nothing is alive,
Or will we become friends? So this precious world can survive.

Spinning world of life (poem)


We live on a beautiful world 

Spinning World of Life

A spinning world in shades of blue and green,
Upon the polar caps, white ice can be seen.
A beautiful world when seen from outer space,
A world that is home to all of the human race.

Many other creatures call this world home,
And across many continents they do roam.
In the oceans, the fish swim everywhere,
While birds, bees and butterflies take to the air.

Across the ice, penguins walk to their home,
Across the deserts, the camels do roam.
Within the jungles, many creatures live,
Such a richness to us, does this world give.

The only world where, so far, life is found,
It’s just empty in space when we look around.
There is nowhere else all this life can go,
So let’s keep safe this precious world that we know.

The joy of living (poem)


We can bring joy to ourselves and to those around us

The Joy of Living

The joy of living and giving,
Brings a happiness to us all.
To be loving and forgiving,
Helps to heal a wound if we fall.

The joy of caring and sharing,
Brings harmony into our life.
With your own life, be sparing,
And to others, help ease their strife.

The joy of being and seeing,
Lets us know our humanity.
If our inner peace we are freeing,
It will help to bring serenity.

The joy of knowing and showing,
That a better person we are.
Helps the world to keep on growing,
And lets our kindness travel far.

The gift of a smile (poem)


The gift of a smile

This poem looks at the power that a smile has for making this world a better place and how it can reach out to others when words are hard to find, crossing the barriers of language and culture.

The gift of a smile

A smile can bring forgiveness and a healing to the heart.
A chance to bring a nearness to those who are far apart.
A chance to bridge a divide and for hope to start again,
Love and joy it cannot hide, nor can bitter words remain.

A smile can save a moment, a key to tensions door,
A moving to atonement, a chance to reassure.
It gives a silent greeting to a stranger who’s in need,
Eases stress in a meeting and causes fear to recede.

A smile can bring happiness to those who are feeling low,
Release them from their sadness and help their spirit grow.
Help an injured soul to mend and to heal their pain within,
Brings anger to an end, so a better life can begin.
