To survive

She was taught

To protect

She was taught

To challenge

She was taught

To kill

She was taught


Fear is the teacher and the one taught

Hate is the teacher and the one taught

Love is the only antidote to the one loved

Love is the only balm to the one loved


“One planet, one people, please”!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. a sweet faced child raised to be a killer, like those army of children soldiers around the world.
    where there is hatred, let me bring love
    where there is discord, let me bring harmony,
    where there is despair, let me bring hope,
    where there is war, let me bring peace……………….
