A Message of Hope
When life around you looks bleak And there's nothing you can do Think of all the nice things This will help you through Everyone in life can feel lonely When you're walking the troubled path But get rid of all your anger And learn once again how to laugh Our mind is often troubled When grey starts to go black Remember this feeling is not new We have always managed to come back The moral of this verse is Everyone in life feels pain But once you begin believing in yourself That's when you can start to live again.
This beautiful and hopeful poem was sent into me by a special person that I have known for many years. Although it is not directly about ‘nature’ I think you will agree that human connection is truly important in these times. This creative writing project is part of Converge and St Nicks partnership. We also run supported volunteering at Poppleton Community Railway Nursery in York – where one of my staff members supports sessions three times a week (some photos of Poppleton Railway Nursery are featured above along with lovely flowers I have bought from Poppleton and pots in my yard).
Through our links to nature we connect as humans, share new growth and evolve together in supportive places. What better way to reach out and support others than through a poem to go alongside this! To the lovely person that sent this in, thank you so much.
With best wishes,
