Science is for those who learn; poetry, for those who know. — Joseph Roux, Meditations of a Parish Priest
To be a poet is a condition, not a profession. — Robert Frost
Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry. — Gustave Flaubert

~ Be ~

Be the peace we've yet to see
Be the shining light
Radiate from deep within
Reflect in everyone’s eyes

Let them not remember you
For your sense of style
Let them fondly think of you
Your generous, and giving smile

Give to all, warm hellos
Be quick to offer help
They’ll think of you, remembering
And feel better about their self

Lend an ear to the weak
Minister to their souls
Comfort those that shed their tears
Give blankets to the cold

But most of all, be not afraid
Live faithfully with hope
Hardships, sickness, chaos and wars
With love we all can cope

So let us be and live together
With open eyes we’ll see
Peace can come, slow but steady
And starts with you and me
