Written October 2013


Children of Hope - touched by the courage of the hearts of those 
Whose footprints are now deep and strong - running with
Unfettered feet across the swathes of land - with joyous 
Victory song - that holds no care - as blithesome - they
Now venture on .

But - what is this crater - bathed now in a shroud of moss 
Of deepest green - once bloodied by the blasts of hell -
Where men of gallant hearts - though now unseen -
Once fell ?

Is this not the lesson we should all have learnt by now - that
Death and life - pace hand in hand across the open vistas
Of a world that should embrace with love its own - and 
Yet - how often does the same - with 
Hate - dispel .

Yes - good and bad - may pass along the same dirt road - and 
Nod as if to recognize their fragile pact - that one man's path may
Cover miles of sorrow - with a weight of heavines upon his back -
And yet - another  passer-by may wave - with hands full of the roses
He has plucked from gardens fair - not knowing of the 
Heartache or the anguish of the one he 
Passes there.

And so it is - life may not always seem as fair - nor happy as 
We may have wanted it to be - but - let us be content - and share
Our  many blessings with our fellow man - whoever or wherever they
May be - and in the doing - lighten someone else's heavy load - 
With gentle smile - and kindly act of
Sympathy . 


If we look hard enough , there is always someone who needs a 
helping hand or a smile to lighten their load .

May we be willing to share our roses with those who are weighted 
down from their heavy hearts and burdens.

God bless you all
