Treat Him Well

If you treat him with contempt
Then that is what you’ll get
If you treat him with hated
Then he’ll learn and then beget
Ways that flow against the tide
That drown and then submerge
His will to walk a righteous way
That set him on the verge
Of courses that might navigate
Away from good to bad
That fill his heart with rocks and stones
And bitterness so sad

So treat him with compassion
With empathy and care
So he will mimic truth and good
And go right out from there
Imbued with truth and honour
Inspired integrally
With hope for better days ahead
A good trajectory
Soaking up the joy from learning
With a heart to contribute
Feeling the pat right on his back
And not the kick from boot

Give Me Love Over Riches

Give me love over riches
Give me compassion too
Give me kindness and empathy
For the happier view

Give me laughter and sunshine
The smile from a child
Give me honesty, openness
Make me meek, make me mild

And the day will be mine
Cross the months and the years
Where with courage and grace
Blessings cross all frontiers.

Love

Delusion

Locked away in a delusion
In a world that only she
Perceives to be her normal
Yet is not reality

Held hostage by her mind
Constrained by what she feels
Convinced by her conviction
Her beliefs are very real

Suspicious of all others
Fearing what they might do
Concerned by what they’re thinking
Certain for sure, they’re true

A hell bound persecution
With no reprieve; a downward slide
Day in day out a prisoner to
Her thoughts; no place to hide.

Yet have a little sympathy
Step out of judgements way
For she deserves your love and help
To bring in gracious rays

Rays of deep understanding
Compassion and a heart
To see; to help; to be a friend
Will you now do your part?

Heartstrings

Not only does it beat and tick
Expand; contract in time
But plays and pulls on strings that go
Past rhythm and past rhyme

Emotions calling unified
The threads that join each one
Across the planet; souls combined
Invisible and long

That extend metaphysically
Through ether and through air
Connections that conjoin each heart
To stretch from here to there

That tug when distance separates
By elasticity
As a reminder that we will
Love through eternity

Heartstrings

 

What is Beauty

What is beauty?
Save grace in the heart
Kindness personified
Gentleness
Compassion
A smile from within

What is beauty?
So more than skin deep
Intrinsic exquisiteness
Splendour
Magnificence
Beholden charm

What is beauty?
If not universal
Appreciation
Humility
Peace
Shining forth

 

Stone Heart

I found a heart down on the beach
A heart all made of stone
All hard and tossed by larger waves
And now sat all alone

With granite core all beaten down
Eroded constantly
By vagaries of weather and
The tears of nearby sea

And now that heart sits on my desk
An aide-mémoire revealed
That we must handle hearts with care
Let kindness be our yield

To save the hearts of others who
Might be tossed to and fro
And be a shining light in life
To help each heart just glow

The Wisdom of Kindness

If you want to grow some wisdom
There’s a seed in you and me
That develops through the seasons
Much like the old oak tree
Sagacious in its branches yet
Starting so very small
A seed that doesn’t shout and rant
But reaches out to all
Not cynical; not assuming
The buds of wiser ways
That blooms pure and simple kindness
For more insightful ways

For kindness is the birthplace that
Manoeuvres out of care
That removes all other blinkers
For truer truth out there
That consciously attunes and sees
The other’s points and views
With comfort and encouragement
For wisdom to infuse
Where power becomes more balanced to
Uplift humanity
In the spotlight of wisdom’s nest
Right in the old oak tree

I Had A Dream

I had a dream about the world
The world all cloaked in fear
Ruled by this overwhelming force
Or so it would appear

But then came a brand new order
That took hold of all the fright
Caressing it with kindness
And bathing it in light

And with compassion’s touch
Doors and ceilings opened wide
To conquer all the bounds of fear
Washed over by the tide

And liberty and freedom
Were released to roam at will
Subduing guns of terror
Scaling up the highest hill

For bullets held no power now
Unable to do harm
As peace reigned in magnificence
Together with a calm

And although fear still existed
The feed was love and honesty
With openness and pureness
Wrapped up in tranquillity

And so fear’s self just vanished
Replaced by universal care
Shining with a luminescence
That was forever there

And in that very dream
The heartbeat of the world restored
Turning from the pulse of violence
To one of acceptance and accord.

Hugs

If you need a hug then have one
Without question, without blame
Without judgement or conditions
For all hugs should mean the same.
As each and every arm wrap
Should come with aid, support and care
To say so very simply
That you’re not alone – we’re there!

And so in times of trouble
Turmoil or just pure strife
Reach out for some affection
To uphold you all through life
And cherish a little comfort
Offload, detox, unplug
By sharing tender moments
All wrapped up in a hug!

What is Compassion?

The hand of comfort touching hearts
With concern and care
On the wing of understanding
Rejecting judgement and despair
Without assumption or bias
Universal altruism pure
Embracing selflessness in union
With love and mercy whole, secure
Innate within the senses
Giving succour and sympathy
Nurturing connections
Surpassing empathy
Paving life paths of fulfilment
Of health and kindness warm
Compassion is happiness
In its highest form.
