Our Life, Our Ways: Rhymed Reflections
by Francisco Gomes de Matos, a peace linguist from Recife, Brazil
Is our Life well seasoned with affect?
Are our ways strengthened with respect?
Is our Life built on fraternity?
Are our ways based on equality?
Is our Life supported by humility?
Are our ways nurtured by simplicity?
Is our Life committed to veracity?
Are our ways devoted to felicity?
Is our Life advanced by conviviality?
Are our ways enhanced by amiability?
Is our Life deepened by spirituality?
Are our ways furthered by positivity?
Is our Life impaired by humiliation?
Are our ways affected by discrimination?
To our Life,to our ways
DIGNITY can bring better days!
