This is wonderful!
A Child's Tears (Poetry) - 12/22/2009 6:56:06 PM
An eye opening poem, I totally agree that hate is everywhere where love should be. How can we turn it around? Only God can.

Very perceptive as to the demise of all mankind. It is always sad when so many are filled with hate and can't even give a reason for it....
Be always safe,

Well said with a very deep understanding that it is far better to love than to hate.....
Be always safe,

Inspiring poem written to all women who have those babes close to them during their nuturing years. Well Done! Deborah

Is it any comfort to know that all of us Sapiens of the genus Homo share this feeling of lostness to various degrees? Perhaps not, since each life comprises a solitary, eclectic search for value that orbits (for unknown reasons) around a greater (and even more unknowable) mystery of the unknown. And yet, when one considers it, who TRULY understands what life is all about has not YET been born. Meanwhile, we must just keep on keeping on and remain hopeful, for when hope finally does die, so does life itself. I enjoyed this write of yours as another who leads a life of quiet desperation. Mahalo nui loa.

Very wise use of your three wishes, Pauline. And you are so right...I think people in war-time have often thought that particular world would be the last. We are flawed, as Mr. Ed says below, and more wars will always loom on the horizon until Jesus, the Prince of Peace, returns to rule the earth. What a wonderful government we will have then!
Meanwhile, teaching the children to love and forgive is certainly a wise and wonderful thing for every caring person to do.

Affirmation of self is perhaps the strongest of human resources to be called upon when that cloud of small minds and mean spirits hovers over us like a flock of experiential vultures. Truly a 'Through the Looking Glass' experience, I think. Very nice and eloquently expressed. I think I must 'track' you. Not to worry, since here in the Authors Den venue that expression is not synonymous with 'stalking', eh?...but you do seem to have a very clarified insight into common threads of daily concern that is both refreshing and rewarding. Mahalo a malama pono!

Beautiful sentiments. Like so many women, you understand the need to nurture all life and delight in its existance, unlike men, who seem happiest only when deconstructing something or creating chaos. We can thank basic human biochemistry for all of this perplexity, unfortunately, but that doesn't mean we cannot continually aspire to peace-filled greatness and the nobility of pure spiritual love that our hopes and dreams suggest are not impossible callings of the human experience! Mahalo for sharing this one with us!
Genie in a Bottle Wanted!!!!! (Poetry) - 11/27/2007 7:20:57 AM
The truth is that it’d only take a while
Before man started to fight again
It seems to be our nature
To be an enemy rather than a friend.
History teaches that this is so sadly true, and I often wonder if we humans are inherently flawed somehow. But I love your last stanza.

1. I wish that not a single child was abused
2. I wish not a single animal was abused
3. I wish that every abuser was locked away!

God is always by our side to offer love and support. True love is everlasting and does not cease when one dies.
Peace to you.

very special...you touched my heart
An Answered Prayer (Poetry) - 12/29/2006 5:18:32 PM
A Mother's love of her child is one of the greatest loves in life. Seal that love with care, teaching, loving, honesty, appreciation, love of God, faith and hope and our children will be great people.
An Answered Prayer (Poetry) - 12/29/2006 2:18:09 PM
Touching sentiment. There is no stronger bond than the one between mother and child. Happy New Year!
Light and Wisdom ...

oh what a simply divine tribute to that someone special, nothing quite like a mother's love...beautiful my friend, enjoyed this very much. God is great!

I applaud you for such a great poem. Having two teenagers, I can relate to this. And you're right a simple smile can make a world of difference.
Just Spare A Thought (Poetry) - 11/25/2006 5:36:31 PM
The world is indeed in a sad state, Pauline. Your poem reads like a prayer. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,
Our World - One World - Too Divided (Poetry) - 11/25/2006 5:35:06 PM
The last stanza offers particularly wise advice but the whole poem is sound and true. Thank you for sharing this gift, Pauline. Love and peace to you,
Our World - One World - Too Divided (Poetry) - 10/18/2006 6:01:04 PM
you describe the state of the world with clarity and vision ... it will take some time but one day the entire world will learn how to smile ...
Our World - One World - Too Divided (Poetry) - 10/14/2006 7:34:07 AM
This is simply beautiful and so heartfelt. You are right my friend, the world is a very different place than when I grew up or even when my children were growing up. I am just forty three and you know things are nothing like they were. It is hard to imagine that our society has come to such things that we do view on the news daily, and not out in the world at a far distance as we once thought, no, it is in our neighborhoods now. I teach first grade and I see so much heart ache and so much pain within the students that pass through my doorway. Children who do not want the weekend to come because they are afraid to be at home for too long, or they may not have anything to eat...this could go on and on...but anyway, you have written a great poem my friend. I'll be back to read more...I'm going to go and hug my granddaughter now, feel the need to. Blessings to you from Kentucky,
Our World - One World - Too Divided (Poetry) - 10/14/2006 5:20:49 AM
Your last line is so true. A simple little smile can work wonders toward others to make it a better world. Enjoyed your write.

Just Spare A Thought (Poetry) - 9/7/2006 4:22:45 PM
This is wonderful, you told it all so well, anyone, child thru adult would understand the passion of your words. We are all in this together, and the divisions cause by new and ancient aches, only make the chasm deeper. We have to live in the now, for the future
this is brilliant, and a keeper
