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 #243 - You Do Make a Difference

Wonder not why you are here…
If a difference you can make.
If only one other life you touch,
Then life’s greatest prize you take.

It’s the prize of knowing you have served
To touch another soul.
For in the great school of your earth
This is a major goal.

So many fail to know this.
So wrapped up in their acts.
They focus mainly on the self
And lose sight of these facts.

Immersed in things material
The focus is all wrong.
When eyes see all externally,
You fail to hear God’s song.

It’s a constant hum inside of you,
But some may never hear it
Through the constant noise around them,
They fail to hear their spirit.

But those who hear it have a glow
That others cannot miss.
They see the peace with which you walk
And think, “Can I have this?”

It’s there for every soul to have –
The joy of knowing who you are.
You cannot force them this to know,
But you can model from afar.

And if only one life you touch,
Then know you’ve done your task.
To heal the world one little bit
Is all that we can ask.


  1. Material wealth and selfish interests are not the blessings to seek in our world. Rather, go within to find Spirit and then send the love to others in our world. We may not reach a multitude of people, but we are making a difference even if we touch one soul.

    On to healing our world today...one soul at a time...

  2. What a fabulous poem.

    This a question I often ask myself. Do I make a difference and in what ways can I help.I like the line "When eyes see all externally, You fail to hear God's song".

    So often we focus on what we do not have and lose sight of what true contentment means. If we do one thing that improves someone elses life or brings a smile to someones face, then our life in return will become richer and brighter...
