H O P E – a new year …



May we be gentler, softer and generous in spirit,


may we raise our voices against injustice whenever and wherever we see it,


may we treasure the love of family and of friends,


may we not be suckered into the million and one new trends,


may we speak truth to power in this world that is veering to the ominous right,


may we hold on to our basic humane principles strong and tight,


may we embrace the other without being bombarded by politicians’ peddling fear,


may we realise that all races and religions and genders belong equally on this earth so dear,


may we struggle for mother earth and may we heed her cries,


may we realise that without her everything dies,


may we continue to stand and fight for gender-rights and equality and justice and peace and hope and dignity for all,


may we be more willing to lend a hand to those who slip and fall.




May we finally realise that all the blood that has been callously shed –


is of one colour,

for we all bleed red …
