Peace…pay It Forward - Poem by Melvina Germain

Stand up for each other, let peace rise beyond all darkness embracing the world. Darkness soars on this earth, we all at some point in our lives experience situations that take us to that place. We endure pain, unhappiness, a great deal of sadness, we grieve, we shed tears in the process. When such situations take place, support becomes the medication, a helping hand, a pat on the back or a tight embrace. This brings forth that calming sensation of peace and we love to be surrounded in such.

When we immerse ourselves in a blanket to family love, friendship love, we become illuminated and absorbed in the beauty of togetherness. We form a marvellous chain of love that no man or woman can break through. Those who cast out darkness, who hurl evil and bask in the formation of pain toward others. Let them remain on the outside looking in and we become the brothers and sisters that send a multitude of glittering stars their way. As they wallow in the sin of hate, may a new thirst arise.

Hate, a putrid decaying of the soul, that painful sword dipped in manure, kept close to the souls of fools. Those who forget time follows no rules and keeps moving forward. Go with the flow or stay locked in a cage of pity dining with hate. When old man river comes to visit and those you spent a lifetime hating you now depend on. But you see it’s too late, for your speech is gone, your mind can hear and see but you can no longer verbalize and the pain is excruciating. What kind of slow death is this, the mind wanders and you remember, O yes you remember. Don’t let hate take you there.

It is an impossible task to change the world in a short time, but we can be the role models that shine a positive light over and over again. With that continued strength along the path of enlightenment, learning more about the differences of others and delighting in that pleasure, we are then walking a mellifluous path touching and embracing people along the way with words, with smiles and most importantly with our actions.

Pay it forward people, touch someone in such a way that you leave a heart-print and with that heart-print they want to do the same, repeat the action again and again, yes the chain begins. Keep paying it forward, let it become a daily routine and you will one day see the beauty of peace cover this world. Let us begin…

    It should be easy, second nature. But we are all too selfish to put forth any effort (Report) Reply

    persistence may one day payoff
    but that day is a long way off
    I admire your endeavor
    and your views I concur
    may all evil one day be cast off
    thanks Melvina-
