I Would Never Hurt A Fly - Poem by jane horner

I would never hurt a fly
I would not want him to die
I would not harm a mosquito
Even if he bit my toe

I love to see life run free and wild
All creatures great and small
Man, beast and child

And people are the best creation
Why can’t we be peaceful – all one nation?
Be gentle and respect all human kind
For they are like you and I – a beautiful mind

I don’t want power over others
I say live and let live -
Let’s discover
Each others’ charms, talents and ideas
Support and assist in times of tears

Be open to the new and unknown
Not for fear to drag us down
Look at the problem from another place
Question yourself – and move on with good grace

We can grow in stature when we know
That to see all lives free is for us to grow,

When you see that fly again
Bid him good day,
Let him be

Written whilst thinking of how we can be more kind to each other - flies or people!
