A Chant to Love, Peace & Life


If the world around you brings grief
And you hardly find relief,
Then seek the spiritual pole comforting your soul.

If your country rulers don't care
For the people's education, health, welfare,
Let sunbeams illuminate their minds
For the better of people's life and daydreams.

If people noble values forget
And their ancestors do not respect,
Help them listen for the sublime voice of silence
That's of paramount importance!

If warships stay on the shore
And innocent children live no more,
Send waves of compassion, sympathy
For their families missing them ever more.

Please keep struggling for a peaceful chance
Trust both God and your spiritual pole
You shall be alive, hopefully
Understanding this complex life dance!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
