A poem.

Image via Wikipedia

Cast a stone into the calm clear water

Watch the ripples grow and grow and grow.

Then think of every moment in your lifetime

Creating ripples in the world you’ll never know.

Think of all the love that you have given

With the love that spreads as far as you can see.

For the life you have isn’t only yours for living.

Once the ripples of your love have come to me.

So think before you cast a stone in anger

For the anger that you cast will surely grow.

If feel the fear and hatred of your brother.

You must find it in your heart to let it go.

Please drop your pebbles lightly on the water.

With love and hope to spread through out the sea.

And leave your stones of hatred on the seashore.

To turn to sand throughout eternity.

    Everything does causes ripples. We do, indeed, need to choose wisely on what kind of ripples we send out.

    I think every individual wants to create good ‘ripples’ that send out a lasting, positive effect…who really wants to be remembered for the negative things? An inspiring and thoughtful piece F J McCarthy :-)

    This piece has a sense of wisdom as well as well writen and very good.Ripples have a way of spreading once created and does not need to be in anger but hope and love.
