A Poem by Sylvia Chika


Billy, let’s be kind

Good hearts we’ll find

Let’s renew our minds

We’ll make merry and dine

It will all be fine


Do not check the time!

I have no desire to hear the clock chime

There’s no hurry

I’m not sorry

There is too much pain

So many insane

Oh! How pretty the world would be

If truly we can see

The ones around us

And show some love with no fuss

If only we can take a pause

And truly look around us

To see the ones in tears

And the ones battling fears

To love the unloved

And call them, “Beloved”

To give a loaf of bread

To the hungry before they are declared dead

To speak kind words

Regardless of the bitterness in this world

To go the extra mile

With a smile

Even when their hearts are filled with bile

To be kind

Even when the reasons are hard to find

If only

If only

We’ll be agents of goodness

In a world filled with so much darkness

We’ll all be filled with happiness

And chase away dark clouds of sadness

If we all made an effort to sprinkle a little kindness around, we would all benefit from a better world. Your lines speak to me about reaching out to others who are suffering, and there are many that do. Nicely conveyed and with meaning. A thoughtful pen.
