This Week’s Food For Thought – Tolerance

If people were more tolerant of each other, their beliefs, nationalities, religion, to name a few things, If we all tried harder to live more in harmony with each other and accept that we are all different.
We all have different ideas and expectations of how things are or should be, perhaps the world would be a kinder place.
This week I will share a beautiful poem with you on Tolerance, it says it all, I hope you enjoy it.


When we are angry at mankind
Or rave at some depravity of mind
When we would curse behaviour of a kind
To argue, rather than to view benign
It is with our own self we battle wage
When choosing not to understand, nor to engage
With that from which we isolate our self
With anger sent, to where, perhaps is needed help
Lest fearful, reason may just find the time
With tenderness, to enter in our mind.
And so it is perhaps from loss of our own face
We are so quick to shout of their disgrace
But we should not lose sight of our own sins
Though, in different colours dressed, appear they in
For is not all, of nature in this life?
The good, the bad, together, love, and strife
As nature, this is how such things will be
So it is not how loud we shout, but what we see
And seeing do, to help, to liberate
To free with tolerance, not shut the gate
That is how it should be
