We live a imperpect world

November 19, 2018

Site Title

As I watch what is happening around the world on T.V
I want to cry out in pain, as my heart breaks
I witness the horror of who we are and what we do.
Not only to the human race , the innocent ones, the elderly but also to our beautiful blue earth that we are turning into a rubbish dump… with polluted water, plastic for turtles to swallow , whales dying at the heating up of our oceans atmosphere changing ,the ice melting away.
After all is said and done, I know this is not and never has been a perfect world.

But does it deserve it , do we deserve it.
We are losing so much with every hour ,every minute in the day
We can change, we have been given a choice.
If only we could see ,we are alll on this road together as one.

‘BEYOND THE RAINBOW’ (A “FUTURE WORK” by craig lock)

November 9, 2018

“Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success; but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.”

Beyond the Rainbow (a future "work" by craig lock

imagine peace

Only when peace lives within us, will it live outside us

“Either we stayed as we were, trapped inside our fortress of paranoia, deformed by fear and greed, or we opened the door to Africa and set forth into the unknown.”
-Rian Malan (in his brilliant book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ – page 413)

“From the depth of the valleys, in the deserts of despair, there is hope… as there is the unquenchable oasis of the human spirit… always.”

Peace on Earth

PEACE ON EARTH
“Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step i take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.”

A New Dawn

Submitters Note

I came across these old writings (which I had forgotten) from over 10 years ago on one of many old usb drives (“dis-organised chaos”). They formed the basis for a book on SA, “the Beloved Country” that I never got to write (  I think, as I tend to lose track of all my books), as I got “side-tracked” on many other projects.

Enjoy anyway.

Gisborne, NZ 26th October 2018

see http://www.onetaleoftwocities.wordpress.com

(two very different countries that I love*)

* who says Kiwis lack passion, other than for rugby!

I want to write stories that matter a lot to me, in terms of my deepest values. True stories from people’s lives in history, that are worth sharing with others, as they have great meaning regarding the universal human condition. I write about ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times, that hopefully uplift and impact others…
