We should all remember to:

‘Do unto others what you want done unto you.’ – Confucius 

The Bible says – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” commonly known as “The Golden Rule”. (Matthew 7:12 NCV, see also Luke 6:31).


Thanks to all the soldiers past and present, here and gone who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice their lives for our own.  And to their families I lend my heart for their losses and warmth for their generosity of lending their loved ones to us. Your pain must have been and I’m sure continues to be great. Thank you all for your honour and dedication to your country the place we all call home. Gratefully yours on this Veterans Day, Felina Silver Robinson

A city of of people

Turn to me

Looking for hope and direction

They trust me to lead them to their destiny

Am I strong enough

Who will lead me

Who will give me strength

We will do great things together

Together as one

For I am nothing without

All of you

You are my strength

You are my soul

You are my conscience

You are my soul

You are my heart

If you look to me

I’ll look to you and together

We will whether all storms

Peaceful Dreams©

In the peace of our dreams at night

We desperately hold onto our thoughts

Holding on to everything good we feel and know

Eagerly trying to chase away the bad and those who cause it

When we close our eyes we see only what we want to see

We feel only what we want to feel

We bring back the memories we want to bring back

These are our peaceful times

In this I see a meadow filled with lilies

Frogs sitting across from each other with the same look that we have

As we lay stretched out on the hill

On our backs we lay

The clouds swiftly moving overhead

We count the seconds it takes for each group to pass us by

The seagulls are racing each other, who will win

We close our eyes to hide from the sun

Hoping that our peaceful dreams won’t pass us by

How long do we wait until we slip into a dream?

Rank

What is Rank?

The order in which we deal

The order in which we report

How we cope

Where we go

Who we are

Rank

Meaningless levels of authority

Meaningless levels of learning

How we teach our children

How we become who and what we are

Rank

It’s class, description, whether meaningful or meaningless

Rank

Is a call to tell how we feel

What we do, who we are, and who we want to be

What is your rank?

What does it mean to you?

I rank not, as you’re all the same to me.


Holding Onto the Sun©

This morning I woke up with my eyes wide open ready for what I might see

The sun was just peaking preparing to rise, bringing light to yet another day

My body lagging behind me not wishing to follow the orders coming from my brain

Tiredness still overwhelming me from earlier day’s journey

The amount of work was truly beyond ones belief

Trying oh so hard to keep up with the rest

I know when the sun reaches its full peak of rising

I should be showered, fed and ready to go

But something continues to hold me back

My mind no longer controls my actions

I’m being run by the body in which I live

When did I lose control?

So hard I try to keep all in shape

Long walks to clear the clutter often stuck in my head

My music lends a piece of mind

While my exercise firms this shape that I’m in

The phone now rings as it is half past 6

Reminding me I’m to be on my way

My body no longer has control as my mind has come back into play

I’m sure we never stop to think of just how easy it is to lose ones control

Be thankful for a strong mind!

When I look back on my life, what will I say?

I survived these days of my life

And keep a smile on my face

I have a wonderful family

A great job

I’m writing

I’m not alone

I’m helping others

I have a good heart and soul

I can see beyond myself

I can see beyond today

I know what it means to feel

I know what it means to rise above the pain

I know what it feels like to hit rock bottom

I know how it is to remain sane

I know what it means to win or lose

I know how to laugh and cry

I also know that life doesn’t revolve around me
