Just To Be

Poetry By: PaulChafer

life, showing kindness and understanding to others, always trying to find the good in others and accepting your own and the failures of others for what they are: a part of life from which we learn.

To hear the child,

through outpourings

of tears, is to hear

a child in need.

To help the lost,

to search within

themselves, is to help

them to succeed.

To recognise sadness,

concealed in brave

composure, is to know

how far we fall.

To sense one's love,

through layers of

deep emotion, is to

know, love conquers all.

To believe in oneself,

despite latent natural

desires, is to accept

the Karma inside.

To rise above mortality,

slipping free of safe

shores, is to sail on

the spiritual tide.

To forgive the listener,

who cannot hear the

word, is to mourn one

who'll never be free.

To touch one's heart,

so breathing life into

life, is to reveal

what it is, just to be.
