IT HAS TO START WITH ME

Their homes are now ablaze
and hopes to rubble raze.
Our worlds in turmoil reel.
We’ve forgotten how to feel.
For Peace and Harmony -
it has to start with me.

It has to start with me -
for Peace and Harmony.
Refugees on our shores
will turn their hands to chores.
Menial tasks we askance;
in lights, we wish to dance.

In lights, we wish to dance;
menial tasks we askance.
An outstretched hand, begs.
Discarded alms and dregs:
It’s all that we can spare?
The Die of Life isn’t fair!


The Die of Life isn’t fair!
It’s all that we can spare? 
A plate of food, a smile;
will go that extra mile.
Ensuring liberty.
Restoring dignity.


Restoring dignity.
Ensuring liberty.
Like an innocent child
I must be trusting, mild.
For Peace and Harmony - 
it has to start with me.

    Suzette...this should be the Poem of the Month. Oh...if people really cared. Read Chris Aiechtner's blog about Christmas. I've written about some things my church group is doing for the Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Bless you, dear. Hugs
