A poem by Brendon


A dark hand touching a light hand

A young face looking into an old

All people working together

For a goal to be told.


A stranger and a stranger together

A foe and a foe are now friends

All people helping each other

Making beginnings meet ends.


A heart understanding another

A soul reaching out to a soul

All people feeding their elders

With plate, fork, spoon and bowl.


A rich man helping a poor man

A convict dancing with a child

All people put aside their differences and

Share a hope that is wild.


A shout comes out from the open like a

Footstep on sand

All people together proclaim now there is

Peace in this land.
