Mend the Fence of Hateful Thoughts

Mend the Fence of Hateful Thoughts by Diana L Pierce

Sunshine warms the smile gentle breezes spread,

Like fluffy clouds of white floating above our heads.

Images that drift away each different from the rest,

Creative minds will picture what they want to be the best.

Mend the fence that holds a memory gone by,

You just might see a sign floating softly in the sky.


Like shapes of dogs and cats and ships that sail away,

Like things we can imagine will create a peaceful day.

Give patience a chance and vision pleasant sights,

For every wasted moment deprives our will to fight.

Give thoughts to lovely imagery traced across the sky,

And only pause from time to time to give a little sigh.


May every day be blessed with grace and joyful cheers,

Let every act of kindness touch the ones so dear.

Smiles can build a gateway to friendship blessed with fate,

Ending all the violence with ugly signs of hate.

Mend the fence and create another thought,

Look into the Heavens, let your dreams be caught.

      I learned years ago thankfully to ignore grudges or revenge. It is a lot easier now my kids are grown.

      Your poem is beautiful and we should always look for the beauty and happy things in life for sure.

      Thank you, Louise. In our dreams there will be not hate. Sadly, the world will likely never find real peace.

      That's lovely, Diana. I hope one day there will be no violence and hate in this world. It is such a terrible place to be sometimes.
