Open Hands - Poem by Herbert Guitang

It starts with a heart of love
With the soul flowing of sincerity
A simplicity of self but imparting own behalf
With purity of intentions ready to give
Sharing gifts, reliefs, donations, pledges and any amounts
But the unseen shares are the time, efforts, and prayers
The good care, assisting the unable, and soothing the pain of people;
- Sharing can be our encouraging words

Sharing has begun with the Creator
The Son shares His life to us
Everyone has the Seeds of Helping
With an OPEN HANDS

Blessings of heaven will Shower back upon us
Pride and Greed hinder the Sharing
Bitterness blocks the benevolence
And Love of Money closes our Affectionate Palm

But our deepest heart will remain gentle
Laying our means to touch lives
Delight with dedication to give and help
With an Open Heart
Sharing will make the wOrld full of LOVE.

    Normally I don't read religious poems as they are not my thing. However, you have mixed in an important lesson into this poem. A world full of love? ? That would be good to be sure. Thank you (Report) Reply

    How very timely, this write. To the people of the Philippines, my heart goes out to you, at this time of great loss. Might I offer a suggestion to fellow poets...donate to the Red Cross. I have seen, first hand, after going through Hurricane Sandy, last year, what a truly tremendous job they do! Be generous in spirit, self sacrifice, that you might ease the burdens of those facing devastating loss. To the Philippines...May God keep you in th palm of His hand.
    As always...I wish you PEACE and understanding
