Uplift

Uplift

To the poets, the artists,

the seers and the seekers.

The pastors and mystics,

monks, and divines,

uplift humanity from the dust

of hate, enmity, and pain.

Uplift, O believers in God’s Plan!

Uplift, O followers of God’s light!

Do not walk past that child lying in blood!

Do not stroll past the man shot in his own car!

Hear the cries as your God hears them!

Wipe the tears as your Lord wipes them!

Bring to the table the love They have all taught.

For true love goes where there is need

Not where there is comfort and ease.

Faith in action is the only answer!

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. Carol, are you still out there? This was a lovely poem, then again I have watched you grow from a timid, insecure voice, to an absolute wordsmith who shines, so I’m not at all surprised. I’ve been gone for over 2 years – there’s a very small version of why under “hello frankenstein” on my site, and I’ve been trying to post again over the past month. I hope you are well sweetheart – one of my original connections, and it feels odd coming back and not connecting with you. Blessings and Blissings Dear Carol. ❤ Kimba

      1. I wasn’t, I’m better, I’m still eh, never the same, but compared to 2 years ago, even a year ago, phew, big time miracle! In fact, every doctor (2+ years ago during the incident) and ever since, which is over 9, call me the miracle. I loved it, not much anymore – it’s been 2 years – what happened was miraculous, but I’m not longer a miracle, as much as wanting to be seen as someone in need of more progress and help, rather than someone who could or should have been worse, does that make sense? ANYWAY, I suppose that answers your question, and I’m pretty sure based upon the order you read everything, that your mouth dropped when you read Hello Frankenstein. I’m sorry love, it wasn’t meant to throw you. xoxoxox

        ALL of that aside, I’m a little fairy, smiling, grateful, planting flowers, feeding birds, caring for the earth and very blessed.

        I’m happy to hear that you’ve been busy, busy is GOOD! I remember a time, in the beginning (sounds like the bible hehe), when time is all you had, among other things, and look at you now, all busy and stuff. I hope you can “hear” my smile. ❤

        It's WONDERFUL to hear back from you!!!!!! xox
