One day
Kindness will be recognised
As far cleverer
And dextrous
Than cruelty

One day
Honour will be reclaimed
From the world of swords and sorcery
And placed within
Our day-to-day choices
And beliefs

One day
Unity will not mean
Conformity or hegemony
But will be hands clasped
Across diversity

One day
Beauty in a child’s eyes
Will orchestrate a symphony
That every heart will hear

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Will need to pray for that day. Nice. 🙂

  2. Sounds like a great day. Can I request sharing honour with the worlds of Sword & Sorcery? It’s really one of the few things we have there. 😛

  3. Beautiful, Helen, particularly the last few lines.

  4. I look forward to that day! It can’t come too soon. Lovely poem, Helen!
