My heart is tender

My heart is tender, my spirit is pure I hate no one I love all. I seek knowledge even if I am poor. It is the real weapon when nights fall. I praise justice, I detest oppression. Every day I forgive every day I tolerate I dream of a day money isn’t our mission. You is me and me is you When you give, think you take When you take think you give. Life is but a shadow and a fake. Try to be as you are good natured Try to be yourself, a real tolerant Love peace, hate war, feels cultured. Or else be a delf, sure inconsistent. We have one and the same lord We belong to one and the same father Why we fight, why spy why hold a sword Kill me kill you kill us both together You are poor I am rich You need and I give I mistake you teach You mistake I forgive. Never say East is east , Never say west is west Never say He is best Say you are my rest best A bomb is easy and fast to make Fire is easy and fast to set A friend is difficult and tiring to take A brother is difficult and boring to collect Fire fire everywhere Weapon weapon every when War became a nightmare Evil is a lion out of a den. Our smile is the same We populate the same earth Why do we differ in aim? Why do we carry a curse? Be wise and give up be humble and try One day you will stop, one day you will weep. Repent in hast your sins multiply The hell is large, the hell is deep. Think of paradise prepared for the pious You have got a heart for you to guide Think of the hell prepared for the callous You have got principles from God to abide One day sure will come we will die One day sure will come we will meet You will be asked, you will sure reply Why kill, why demolish why cheat Each sin you commit, each good you Will be in a book incarnated for you That is the time of Rejoice or woe Back again for life, of course a big No. By Ahmed Mohamed Khidr Egypt Tanta Kotour Kotour secondary school

Hi Ahmed.I think this is very good.I feel your intensity and share your views.We are one.The sad thing is we focus on differences between us.We are diverse in our thinking,but that is because we are all individual personalities.We look different and have varying cultures.But that adds to life makes it beautiful and interesting.It is the human heart that counts, as you've stated,indwelt and guided by the one God of Love.Keep writing Ahmed.and keep your heart tender and forgiving.Luv June(Sylvia)
