No Room for Hate.

There is no room within my heart
for revenge, fire or hate
there is no room within my mind
for any thoughts like these.

I cannot find the words to say
just how it is I feel
but I know from deepest hurt
I must forgiveness find.

The hurt that’s been done to us
cuts sore like a knife,
but we must not, repay in kind
what has been done to us.

Instead we must try and find
the way that is so hard,
and reach out our loving hands
to find some friendship now.

There can be no more healing thing
than opening wide our eyes
and seeing that most other folk
are really just like us.

by David Gould
This first poem was written in memory of all those that died in 7/7 but equally applies to those who lost loved ones in other tragedies....

Make Your Voice Known


Speak out, speak out

All who have remained silent

All who have had their voices silenced

Let your voice be heard


Speak out, speak out

All who despise the injustice

All who have tired of losing their rights

Let your voices ring


Sing out, sing out

All who care for your fellow man

All who have been made to feel foolish for doing so

Let your voices chime in harmony


Sing out, sing out

All who tire of war

All who have been called terrorist for promoting peace

Drown out the voice of darkness


For when we make our voice heard

The creator will join in with us

And quench the evil that has oppressed us

Bringing us into the light

As long as there is greed, hatred and jealousy, there will be suffering
and there will be supporters of horror.
Let us untangle our hearts and mind.
Open are the Gates of Heaven

I can't help feeling a sense of shame, anger and disgust. How could so-called fellow human beings commit such heinous, mindless and indiscriminate destruction? I'm now hearing that some of these foolish cowards were British 'Muslims'. Two of them were apparently shot dead. There have also been arrests in Bradford and Leeds in northern England. I still can't believe that this has happened but can only feel deep sympathy and sorrow for those that have been so tragically and cruelly murdered, supposedly in the name of God, and my sincere condolences and thoughts are with the the grieving families. It's times like this when it must be practically impossible to forgive, and revenge and retribution come to one's mind and heart. Of course I'm not suggesting that this should ever be the course of action to take but how can it ever end...tit for tat retaliation...eye for any eye, etc. I can only hope and pray that strength, peace, love and forgiveness will eventually prevail if enough people truly believe in these in their hearts. May God bless us all and protect us all and help guide us all towards more good deeds and actions. Shanti, Shalom, Salaam and Peace to all.

I think, only the path shown by Gandhi so many years ago can lead us to the mass dream- a peaceful world.
