A New Light Is Born

Looking around, it sometimes seems so hopeless
Violence and war, suffering and more, each way that you turn
Yet is it not true that life is for the learning
And from the depths of darkness, a new light is born

If only we’d see all the love amidst the chaos
People who care, joys that we share, peace that abounds,
Then we would know, in truth it’s not so hopeless
Each time we love another, a new light is born

It’s time to break free from the rhetoric of doomsday
If we understand our life is in our hands, it’s up to us
We shape our world, it’s us who makes the difference
If we change the world gets better and a new light is born

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
