Beyond the darkness, a new world comes (poem)


Light will always return to our lives

Beyond the darkness, a new world comes

Beyond the far horizon, the sun will return again,
Though darkness be with us now, its shadows will not remain.
These dark times will depart at the coming of the sun,
For always light follows darkness, somewhere the dawn’s begun.

The spinning of the Earth brings to us both darkness and light,
As soon as the darkness begins, tomorrow is in sight.
It may be a while yet before its light and warm once more,
But it is coming, for it has never failed to come before.

Upon the hint of dawns first light, we can begin to see,
The world tomorrow is bringing to us, to you and to me.
It will not be yesterday, for that was a darkness ago,
And what is coming after the dawn, we have yet to know.

The dark night may have been a struggle, so hard to get through,
That the world coming with this dawn, is so different and new.
Perhaps the darkness changed many things, that we are now afraid,
But in this new dawn, love can be found, and a future remade.

Am I a stranger or a friend? (poem)


Let friendship bring understanding into a world of differences.  

Am I a stranger or a friend?

I may have walked a different path, taken a different way,
I may have led a different life and seen a different day.
I may not have learnt with you, to see what you can be,
But does that make a difference between you and me?
So now I will ask of you, as this day comes to an end,
Just how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

Perhaps if I had known your way, had seen it long ago,
And decided that it was not for me, choosing not to know.
Then you could be right to say, that I am not like you,
To turn your face away from me and keep me out of view.
But I did not learn on your road, nor walk round a single bend,
So how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

I understand just what you say, I would like to know you more,
Perhaps if you would sit with me, there’s a seat just by the door.
Let me know of your life and I will tell you about my own,
Then after a day or two, our understanding will have grown.
Learn how to heal our wounds, to know where to stitch and mend,
And then, over time, change from a stranger into a friend.

Sail away from Sadness (poem)


Set sail to a better life, leaving the sadness behind

Sail away from Sadness

Upon the island of sadness, hope is growing,
Upon the far horizon, dreams light up the sky.
Upon this dawn, the winds of promise are blowing,
Across the seas, the sounds of a new life drift by.
Yesterday’s stillness departs as the night fades away,
With dawn’s beginning, comes a journey towards hope.
Upon that sad island, you were never meant to stay,
You were just tied to its sadness with yesterday’s rope.

Release the rope and let your fears float out of sight,
Let dawns tide sweep you away from yesterday’s beach.
Let the wind of hope sail you towards the light,
Bringing the dreams of tomorrow within your reach.
From the stillness, move to where your life can restart,
Sail away from sadness, leaving the past behind.
Landing in tomorrow with fresh hope in your heart,
Where upon the new beach a new life you will find.

The path that is right for me (poem)


Be your true self.

The path that is right for me

I have chosen the path that’s the right one for me,
For it is the one that is closest to my heart.
It is the one upon which my spirit feels free,
And in truth, I have traveled along from the start.

There have been times when I may have drifted away,
There have been times when other paths I have found.
But not for long, upon them do I ever stray,
Before my feet decide they should turn me around.

My mind may get lost every now and then,
My thoughts stray from this person just here.
But somehow, my soul seems to know just when,
It is time for my heart to take over and steer.

Taking me away from all this falseness within,
Away from where the pain and heartaches go.
Back to my own path, so I can once again begin,
To be the one person that I truly know.

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.

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.

The Candle of Hope (poem)


The Candle of Hope
© Jenny Maryl

Hope within a sparkle of light:

Candle of hope

The candle of hope, a small beacon of light,
One tiny flame that will always burn bright.
So tiny in size, that it is almost not there,
But set it alight and it will spread everywhere.

So small that you feel that it cannot last long,
But throughout all the darkness, it will shine strong.
Through all those shadows of doubt, it will hold fast,
Burning within you until all the doubts pass.

It will still shine strong in your darkest of day,
Bringing you fresh hope and then lighting the way.
Chasing out those fears that are hiding in you,
For the candle of hope will always shine through.
