What If …

This is a lovely poem from Carol Hand and expresses what I feel. Everyone is here for a purpose, a reason and we should embrace that and love each other.

Voices from the Margins

Carol A. Hand

What if –
We believed everyone is born
With a special gift to offer the world
Each one has a unique and necessary role to play
That no one else can fill

What if –
We welcomed and nurtured each new child
Enfolded them in love and warmth
Helped them developed their gifts
Encouraged them to share their sprit song joyfully

What if –
We learned that all life is sacred
And found ways to live in peace
To tend our gardens together and share
To blend our voices in harmony

Dreaming of possibilities is the first step …
