Don't Be Judgemental

by Debbie Bongiovanni-Sharp
(California, USA)


Don't pass judgement on anyone,
Accept them for who they are,
Because if you do then you'll be blessed,
And you will sure go far.

God doesn't judge anyone,
He loves everyone right from the start,
So why don't you do the same thing,
And do it from your heart.

Courage

by George Hague
(Davis, California, USA)

A heart that moves when fear and need stifle.
A soldier who advances against a foe and his rifle.
Standing alone against falsehood and deceit,
and shining a light so others may see.
Strength of mind, character and ambition,
Converging to act in accordance with conviction.
This is courage to me.

Letting Go

by Melodie L. Atkinson
(Ballston Spa, New York, USA)


You may feel you're protecting them from
future pain, disappointment and hurt.
Let's ask them about today's
pain, disappointment and hurt...
Let's let go of yesterday's
pain, disappointment and hurt..
So tomorrow our children will be okay.

A Child Forgets To Cry

by Melodie L. Atkinson
(Ballston Spa, New York, USA)

A child does not understand loss. A child does not know why they do not come around. A child is unable to define inner emotions. A child should not be left out. A child will blame themselves. A child will scream inside, smile in our faces while holding thoughts of "I wish I could die"... A CHILD, A CHILD, YES A CHILD will forget to cry.

You Need to Walk the Walk

by Debbie Bongiovanni-Sharp
(California, USA)


If you say you're going to do something,
Make sure you walk the walk,
You need to get the job done,
And not just talk the talk.

If you do then you will see,
That people will be proud of you,
Because you did the right thing,
And you saw everything through.

The beauty of things lies in the purity of the soul...

Nature

by Ben Roberts

my life is green just like a tree,

my life is fresh just like the breeze,
that brushes smoothly past my knees,
but most of all my life is pure,
my problems disappear by nature's cure.

Silent Flight

by Chris Roe
(UK)

In the silence
The clarity of your voice,
Climbs high
Upon the eagle's wings.
The chains of doubt
That imprison my soul,
Fall away beneath my feet.
In the freedom and majesty
Of the sentinel’s gaze,
Faith is strengthened
And hope returned
To a weary heart,
Upon the silent flight
Of eagle's wings.

A little love is enough to make me smile
A ray of sunshine is enough to make the day bright
But some soft words from you then make my life alright

Grace

by Brian M
(Attleboro, MA, USA)

We shall be true to all
who we love in our lives,
we shall be true to our husbands,
true to our wives.

We shall be loyal to our mothers,
and we shall be loyal to our fathers,
loyal to our sons and to our daughters.

Life is a gift, and family is a gift;
an endowment that we all have been
blessed with today,

so let us endear this wondrous favor,
cherishing it each and every single day.

The Cement Wall

by Bernadette Senores

Giving up
is the easiest thing to do
when a cement wall
is blocking your way to success.

This is the moment
when you have to realize
that God has placed
a blessing right behind it.

With rose light through.

Once Again

by Georgis Santiago
(Fort Myers, FL, USA)


Oh how I yearn to return
to my youth once again.
When life was a dream, fantasy,
no worries for me.
When pretending was the norm
and life was wholesome and pure.
Oh how I yearn to return
to my youth once again.

The Lesson

by Tushar Vyas
(Mansa, Gujarat, India)


I was sad, I was mad,
Things had grown worse from bad.
I bade the world farewell,
And roamed into a forest like a lad.

Sparrows sang songs of joy,
Each like His happy toy.
What was then I lamenting for?
My heart said: "Sing and enjoy".

Thank You!

by Yeshi Gemaneh
(Oakland, CA, USA)


Yellow, white, black, brown
You host each and all
All can hear your voice from a distance
The ringing bell inside your heart is a triumph
After hard labor you gave birth to democracy
Gathered under your shade in search of
the lost freedom
Stretch your hands up to reach those left out
Let all sing a song of equity
There are still many buried in agony
Browse through your vocabulary for poverty
Open your eyes wide to see the lost
You happen to be an affectionate mother
You offer bread and butter
Thank you, Statue of Liberty!

Another year has passed,
And a new year is about to begin,
Everything you put your mind to,
Will be accomplished and you will win.

Just look forward in your life,
And set your goals for the year,
Then have a glass of champagne,
And bring in alot of cheer.

So don't look back at the past,
Believe this year will be the best,
All of your dreams are there for you,
Because you are so very blessed.

A Path Not Taken

by Patti Richards
(St Julians, Malta)


A path not taken
Chance took the lead
My fate was sealed
All hope forsaken
Would I go back
And change my destiny
Regrets resigned, healed

The path I chose
I learnt and grew
Providence
Would I be so different
My unknown trail
And never know you
Empty beating heart

Did destiny cheat me
Comprehension of pain
Or journey of awe
A blessing in disguise
Friendships depth
Love’s euphoric rise
Bitter discontented pitch

Paths to choose
Fated destiny’s journey
A rock hard place
Arid burning sear
Moments incomprehensible
Joyous abandonment
My path my journey my fate

2 Kinds of Reasons

There will always be
2 kinds of reasons:
Realistic and unrealistic.

Unrealistic reasons are
temporary shadows.

With patience and time,
the sun is responsible
for shining its rays of light

And now it won't be long.

And it will always be right,
So make sure that you follow it,
And you will see the light.

No Regret

Never regret being loved by someone...
even if that someone has gone...
because even only for one day...
if it's a true love...
it's worth to feel...

Never regret if you ever loved someone...
even if that someone has gone...
because even only for one day...
if it's a true love...

You and Me

by Kelsey
(U.S.A.)


Every time we talk, every time we look at each other,
every time you speak to me and laugh...
I fall harder for you, and also,
how come every time I am upset or pissed off,
you can just say one word to me or
look at me and smile or not even smile,
and I would get butterflies in my stomach
and I start to be happy and full of joy?
Is it because I think I love you?

I Love You

by Secret Admirer
(Sydney, New South Wales, Australia)


You make my happy
You teach me I'm lucky.
If I'd a chance
I'd give you my first dance.
You make my day
By just glancing away.
You make my day one in a million
By just a touch of your body or hand.
You have no clue
How much I think of you.
You have no clue
How much I love you.

One Way

by Yeshi Gemaneh
(Oakland, CA, USA)


Politeness is not a weakness
It is in my blood, inherited from my forefathers
Why speak ill of me
When I speak good of you!
Stop the hurt look into my eyes
With a drop of honey on your tongue"too sweet
When it gets to me, too bitter
Condemnation and criticism pull us apart
The feeling in you, also in me
When you say, “No, it’s a gesture
When I say it, it's cruelty
Why not make a common way?

Long-term Relationships

by Bernadette Senores
(San Bruno, CA)

The most effective relationships...
It is not our purpose to become exactly like one another,
It is to recognize the potential in each other,
balance and learn to see the other through spiritual eyes
Without forgetting to respect, love, and honor
that person for what he or she is.

Understanding a Sad Brother

by Ashley
(Milwaukee, WI, USA)


He was bright, he was sad,
he was in love but not always glad.
I wish oh I wish he had one chance to show
who he really is in his one and only chance.
He is gone but he can come back,
he is in my heart even though
you don't understand who he was in life.
A story oh a story told by his only sister Abby,
but remember everyone loves you not just because
of your looks but for always being yourself.

Fathers

by Kim Lusk
(Salem, SC, USA)


God gave fathers a special job,
To lead their families.
To keep them warm and safe and fed;
And love them unconditionally.

A father who is led by God,
Puts pride and self aside.
To do what is best for his family
And lets God in his heart abide.

Nothing to Fear

by Jai

Sometimes I don't know why I get this unusual thought
at the time when everyone goes to sleep except me
A strange thought passes through my mind,
a strange fear wakes me up
I worry I think, I think and I cry
seems like I have no one in this world for me
I have nothing to do in this world
There are so many pain inside me
though I got everything I need
I don't know how am I gonna prove myself
to this world and show 'em what I'm made of
I have no one to console, so I console myself
by saying GOD is with me dear,
I have nothing to fear!

Staying Healthy

In the urban sprawl, how do we stay fit and healthy?
Watch our diets, regular exercise and try to
control diseases that attack our immunity.

All I Can Say

by Yeshi Gemaneh
(Oakland, CA, USA)


As the wind whoosh! whoosh!
Walking around the sea
Watching the strange birds
I could tell they are escaping
From the angry cloud behind
The sun now moving from my sight
The reflection hurts unknowingly
So standing on this delightful lea
Have only a glimpse of the sea
That whispered in my ears
It was a farewell to the birds
With little knowledge of me
For this, and everything I said, “interesting
And now I see a different view of thee

Trusted Words

by Patti Richards
(St Julians, Malta)


Sweet is the sound
Of trusted words
Spoken in syllables
Lovingly heard

Words so perfect
To both tongue and ear
It caresses our trust
To speak and hear

So silkily woven
By a tongue so true
With tender devotion
Beguiled by you

Our hope is enticed
Our happiness assured
By your every action
And every word

If heaven on earth
Is spent in your wake
My life is Nirvana
Each breath that I take

You're half of the whole
That makes us entire
Beyond contentment
And carnal desire

Emma

My mother, I dreamed every day of you
Your kindness all gone with you
Your smile, concern, and care to the last
You were an open market to all
You were a special mirror where
I could see my shadow as well
The door remained tightly closed
It will not be open again
You are gone forever
With no hope of return, but with many
Memories behind
I couldn’t come home before your death
My heart still remembers
The undying memory in me remains forever


(Dedication to my beloved mother)

Desire

by Micah Danielle Hetrick
(South Bend, IN, USA)


There are places you have yet gone,
Feelings yet to let go,
Release yourself and feel those unknown desires,
You live by lessons learned,
What's life without the
Journey of love.
Letting go of the past hurt to feel again
is the first step to finding yourself.
Desire the dream that was once
said to be the impossible.
And you will find the one worth searching for.
Your North Star who is always constant.
