A Declaration

You're very special, incredibly precious, totally unique, and scientifically amazing, regardless of your IQ, looks, position, handicap, circumstances, or background, and despite what anyone may say to the contrary.

You're part of a plan, full of potential, a valuable asset, and worthy of time, effort, and love. You're my fellow human, my equal, and we're bound to each other via origin and lineage.

You've been given a chance, an opportunity, and your happiness, even longevity, lies in using it for the benefit of others.

You're not what you were yesterday, but what you choose to be today, and even should that change come later rather than sooner, it's reason to rejoice, and there's still time to leave a favourable lasting impression, a positive contribution.

So, come love with me, laugh with me, cry with me, heal with me, care with me, stand with me, search with me, grow with me, build with me, share with me.

You're needed! You're wanted! We're family.

About the Author:

I live in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. Wellington has a lovely harbour. I am married with 6 children. I could say I became a poet by accident, but God knows better. He clearly had a purpose in mind, via poetry, and I'm humbled that He's been using me, an unworthy vessal.

He knows that I am greatly concerned by the cruelty, unkindness, etc, that is being shown to His creatures and humankind, and that I'm greatly saddened by the wrong things occurring on this earth, the harm being done to this earth, and the waywardness of those He made in His image [which includes me], which I have tried to address somewhat via my poetry. It is my hope that my poems will stimulate thought, generate discussion, bring about changes, prove a blessing to others, and bring glory to God from whom the ability to pen poems comes.
