About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #63 - On Love vs. Hate

Hold a candle to your fears
Light them with the glow,
For when the darkness disappears
Then true peace you’ll know.

* * *

There is one thing that all souls crave
The one thing that your life will save
It’s love that keeps you ever striving
Keeps you pushing, trying, driving

Without the fullness in your heart
It’s hard most anything to start
For love’s the thing that fills your cup
Gives you energy to get up
When all you want to do is sleep
When in the darkness you do weep

Why do you have to hunger so?
There’s not a place that you can go
That love’s not there
Perhaps you’re not aware

Some keep it hidden deep inside
When all they have to do is open up their heart
If they would learn love not to hide
Then living life would truly start

It’s easier to hate than love
When someone does you wrong
But cast aside your need to strike
Put down the padded glove

Send forgiveness although it’s hard
The payback comes in spades
When you can love instead of hate
No need for cutting blades

Oh, how the world would surely change
If all could heed these truths
When love is all you choose to see
When you shout it from the roofs.

A soothing salve, a healing balm
When love’s your base, your life is calm.

* * *

See your fear and cast it out
Let not hate roll about and harm you
Let us arm you with love.
The only tool you’ll ever need
To succeed.


  1. This poem comes at good time for me. Thanks!

  2. I am a believer in the power of love. "Oh, how the world would surely change if all could heed these truths..."

    I find the first stanza in this poem especially meaningful and comforting. "Hold a candle to your fears..." It is my mantra for today!

    Let us go forth in love...

  3. 3 different poets here. the opening and 4th quatrain are definitely from the same poet as are the first and third stanzas. I believe the poem ends at ...life is calm... and the next 5 lines are a personal message to the medium. but what is intriguing to me is not the rhyming pattern but the caesura's--either because of how the info is being spoken through you or intentional...will require study to determine which.
