Everything Is (or is it ? )
Author: John Tucker
Everything is what it is.
Or is it something else ?
It.s - 'clear as day',
I hear you say, but.........
To me it's not !
Everybodys' view of life, is changing continually.
So why should we , expect spouse, or friend,
to constantly agree.
A contradictory viewpoint,
Can fuel, a war of words, or worse.
Why waste our lives in argument.
A situation, so perverse.
When common sense, becomes uncommon.
Conversation, terse and unrehearsed.
We won't sow - 'happy unions',
More likely, the reverse !
But,allowing everyone to be,
exactly who, and what they are.
Respecting their individual views.
No matter how 'Bizarre'.
Will bring a life that's filled with 'Sunshine'.
'Joy and Happiness' - 'Galore'.

From Vinod Bodhankar, ABC4All Mentor (India)
Here is a poem I wrote with foster children in mind...when there was a call to walk, wake and light candles for foster children on change.org...
Prayer for foster children and orphans...
God of all religions
God of every congregation
God of all orphans
God beyond every segregation
Grant us that which flows from heart
Our love should merge - not stay apart -
Till a shield of love over people stays
And over each child gently plays
And foster children gently feel
Our hearts of love which flow to heal.
Let the prayers come, O God,
From every nation on our earth.
Let the healing flow, O God
to each orphan who came to birth.
Let Your mercy spread to heal
Let every nation healing feel.
Each nation like an orphan is !
So, God, no nation do Thou miss !
We are children teach us God
To work together for You, Lord
In a merging flow which knows not name
Love for children?
All over earth, its the same.
Christians come and Hindus come
All kind hearts are here welcome
Muslim, Sikh and Buddhist too
And every faith of every hue
Paint it with the love for all
Hold us not in division's thrall
Together we raise our prayers to Thee
Grant Your grace to orphans, We.
Let our flow of love be free...
Every child is my child to me......
From Atta, ABC4All Mentor from Pakistan
Life is like a candle.
It burns, burns and burns and gives lights to others,
And goes down and down until finished,
And leaves a good example in world.
Life goes down and down every second.
Are we giving light to others?
Are we leaving good examples?
Are we leaving a bright name?
Changing through Education & awarness
Elimnation of Child Labour,Education For All,No Smoking ,
Good Health For All,Poverty lleviation,HIV/AIDS awarness
The Nightmare wasn’t a Dream at all
I had a dream
A very bad dream
where little kids were sad
Hunger let them beg
Thirst let them drink what ever they found
Tired , little kids had no home or no house
Poor little ones full of dirt
Dressed in rags
Eyes which tells you a story which is sad
Suddenly a big shining car passed by
Stepped out was a family in shining clothes
What a difference
What a world
Not even a minute was spent
To pay attention on these little kids
These little kids had not even a place to rest
Their little eyes begged me for HELP
I woke up and realized that wasn't a night mare but reality
Reality which I cannot change but help the needy
If everyone of us would carry a part of these crosses in the world
This world would become a better place for each and everyone.
"THE REALITY is not always VISIBLE"
WHAT YOU DO NOT SEE NOW
OR CANNOT HEAR NOW DOESN'T MEAN THAT "THAT DOESN't EXIST"
WE CANNOT SEE GOD AND STILL WE BELIVE IN HIM
WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT,
WE CANNOT CLOSE OUR EYES JUST BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW OR SEE OR HEAR WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS WORLD
WE CANNOT IGNORE JUST BECAUSE WE DO NOT HEAR THE FACTS IN WORLD LATEST NEWS
WE CANNOT ALSO SAY THIS OR THAT CROSS IS TOO HEAVY FOR US TO CARRY
WE CANNOT CHANGE THE REALITY BUT WE CAN MAKE IT EASIER TO HANDLE IF WE ALL WOULD HELP EACH OTHER
NEVER FORGET!! WHAT YOU CANNOT SEE DOESN'T MEAN "IT DOESN'T EXIST"
Let's dream, plan and Do for a better world...
Let's make the year 2008 witness of our successful endeavors...
Let peace prevail as long as humanity...
Let's decorate the earth with joy and colors.
Come and pray to grow and succeed...
Think of humanity, talk for loyalty and faith.
Grow stronger to help the self and to help others…
A New beginning, a fresh thinking, a gentle breeze for better breath..
The new year beholds a lot of happiness and ever lasting joy.
