Five truths about life and peace


An entry in the 2015 Rivers Award
for Writing on Peace & Harmony

Five truths I have learnt. We must be responsible, we must be able to forgive, respect is earned not deserved, contentment leads to a satisfied life and we must believe in something. It’s only human to do that

Be responsible
Nothing comes easy in life
You work hard, you earn

Forgiveness, the key
Let go, forget and keep none
Peace will be your friend

Respect is the word
When you give and show respect
It will be returned

Be content with life
You cannot have everything
Peace will be your life

Believe in something
God, Jesus, Buddha, world peace
It’s our essence
