See The Heart




A child is born of innocent mind

Trust fills the heart within

A child is born pure of soul

No prejudice or sin


Take that child and teach it well

Good or bad, it cannot tell

Entrusted with an awesome role

Be strong of heart and deep of soul


In early days minds take form

From what they see, their character born

Not one arrives with religious thought

Good or bad, this is taught


We shape the world that lies ahead

Let’s put our past mistakes to bed

Let’s give our child the gift to see

Equality in humanity


Through care and love and thought and deeds

To care for those with wants or needs

See not the colour of the skin

But just the heart that beats within


Judge not by shape nor size

Judge with head and not with eyes

Heart and soul define a man

Not what he cannot do, ……but can.


Let’s not judge on visibility

You can’t see all disability

Do not seek to judge exterior

Do not think that one’s inferior

Some may seem a little less able

But bring so much to life’s top table


I know my weakness, show me your strength

Will you be with me, if so to what length ?

Together, stronger, enabled for longer

A voice for fairness, to raise awareness


Will you be meek, or the voice that we seek

Will you stand where many cannot

Please do not fail, the weak and the frail

Remember as a child being taught
