Opportunity

Every word that we speak
Every thought we hold back
Every action we do
Sets indelible tracks
And marks that are etched
On the minds and the hearts
Of those we hold dear
Plus those set apart
So that at the end
When we breathe our last breath
We’ll be sure that our legacy
Will survive past our death
So we’ll know that our life
Has been lived; no regret
With no shame nor missed chance
As none should forget
That an olive branch offered
May be the last that we see
If we don’t accept it with honour
And integrity
And that opportunity wasted
Is washed away in our tears
So make the most of your life
And enjoy every year

Justice (Haiku)

In search of the truth
Honour and integrity
Upholding justice

Believe In Yourself

Believe in yourself
You’re worth so much more
Than you portray now
Your life’s not a bore

Believe in yourself
Accept who you are
Love your reflection
And shine like a star

Believe in yourself
Build up your esteem
Your worth is immense
For you’re the cat’s cream

Believe in yourself
Give you due respect
Honour your value
With pride not neglect

Believe in yourself
Content being you
Smile that you’re worthy
Yes – know that it’s true!

 

Respect Each Other

R egard and consideration
E xpressions of respect
S incere and true connections
P romoting esteem with great effect
E ssential obligation
C rystalized in human form
T olerance and patience that

E choes past the storm
A ppreciation over everything
C hallenges of worthiness
H onouring the other person

O penly with openness
T ruth and responsibility
H arnessing a loving grace
E verything to everybody
R espect for the human race

 

Truth and Responsibility

There’s a culture of blame apparent
That’s swept across the land
Paralysing the sense of freedom
Taking truth hostage in its stand

There’s a move towards complacency
That’s asphyxiating hearts
An inability to apologize
Segregating into parts

There’s a harbouring of hatred
Suffocating liberty
Depriving love and laughter
Detaining in captivity

There’s an ethos of rash judgement
That fails to understand
Neglecting to appreciate
Different perceptions hand in hand

There’s a path of destruction
That stifles global breath
Draining empathy and compassion
Leaving a trail of death

There’s a choice to be made?
A subscription to integrity
Upholding honour daily
With truth and responsibility
