1 Love - Poem by Ibrar Siddiqi

One love is all is intended.
Respect and tolerance - a world mended.

Wars divide and displace the innocent.
On missiles, warlords have spent.

Love thy self.
Then love everyone else.

Life is too short to hate.
I demonstrate a tale.

Where I am racially abused.
Other people of different colours or faith confused.
A few nasty words.
Nothing physical - I remain unbruised.
Ignore those of little respect.

Love them anyway for someone has hurt them some way.
But an ill timed comment, ruins somone's day.

It is wrong to hurt or interfere.
Words of harm or fear.

Little nothing but a bad impression.
Let's love one another.

Say hello or crack a smile.
After a little while.
You feel good.
Like you should.
I showed a man a wee piece of kindness.

I confess his attitude, left me in shock.
I hope in time.
His world becomes much nicer.

Women of different faith blessed me for my help.
I love it when the world feels better.
Smiling makes me feel great.
Why wait?
1 love.
