Enemy!

Have you ever stopped an wondered if
Your enemy became your friend
How much your worlds could then be healed
How much you’d make amends
For all the times of hatred
And all the times of pain
A joining of two forces
Where each could then refrain
From a world intent on bitterness
Anger, reprisal, doubt
And where compassion and kindness
Would prise the goodness out!

Apples

Some apples are good
Some apples are bad
Some are sour; bring on tears
And make us so sad

But the thing with good apples
They are so tasty
Although some of the bad
Can become jam or jelly

But the sour all just rot
When they fall from the tree
Are best left to die
And not eaten by me

But the key’s in the seeds
Which might replant elsewhere
To produce better fruit
And taste a whole lot more fair!

Let Love Win Over Hate

Let love win over hate
Kindness over harm
Compassion beat cruelty
With ubiquitous charm

Let forgiveness rule supreme
Let malice melt away
And revenge not be the path that’s walked
With bad karma in play

For those who troll on others pain
Must really not be blessed
Falling so short of anything right
And lacking of all goodness

The Mouth Speaks What The Heart Is Full Of

The mouth reflects the heart’s content
A mirror on the soul
The verbal flow of what’s within
Reciting rote recall
A vision of what lies beneath
The mask that each one wears
Betraying internal substance
So watch out and beware
Of those who smile yet utter forth
Profanities and hate
For where there is dis-synchrony
Such words are venom’s trait
Releasing from deep down inside
A vapour stream from hell
In swirls and pools of discontent
That does not bode so well
So only counter words that match
Content that’s good and true
And aim to honour real concord
In all you say and do

Fruits of Sanctity

When dark clouds gather, ghouls and ghosts
Liars and haters claw
Remember this, look to the light
To keep each heart so pure

For there let peace reside within
Resting each weary mind
Holding onto kindness and truth
With gratitude unwind

And seek a path of hope forward
Be intent on love’s own way
Forbearing, goodness, patience, faith
And joy day on each day

Then tether to benignity
Where fruits of sanctity
Will liberate from oppression
As grace thus sets each free

Let’s Celebrate Nice People

Let’s celebrate nice people
Yes, the nice people who we meet
The ones who simply make our day
Those who smile when in the street
Who carry bags and open doors
Those who stop and take the time
To help all fellow people
In a way that is sublime

For sometimes when we’re busy
It’s just so easy to forget
To go that extra mile or yard
And to bother or sublet
The niceness that is in us all
The goodness we have to give
The pleasantries and hellos
That improve just how we live

So take a leaf and copy
Those nice people who in life
Take the time to be so lovely
And take away our strife
And copy all their good habits
The blessings they can impart
And pledge to be much nicer
Beating kindness from our heart!

Nice just sometimes sums it up 🙂
