New Age Love

A voice within
Beckons me to do
What a brother would do to another

Face to face
With the morass of poverty
In which they live
My brothers who
To no fault of their own
Live in unspeakable lack

Feeding on what little scraps they could find
Clinging onto pitiable opportunity that comes by

I wonder
Is it by geographical accident
Or by accident of birth
That some people live in better parts of the world
While others meet life with pain and travail?

 Life is not fair
This much you know
But don’t stop there
Life is beautiful!

The scales are always sitting on a fragile balance

Some have
Some don’t
Some feast
Some fast
Some grow
Some groan
Some take flight
Some fight

Every colour, every hue
Represents me and you
We are forces that help each other
Stay and keep on somehow

Amidst life’s imbalance
We pull here and there
With service and love to offer.

Governments, education,
Charities, civic groups alone
Cannot do all
Without help from YOU.

It’s the New Age Love
A love above one’s own
It grows with a conscious effort
To help someone breathe better
A day at a time.

It’s not a one-shot deal
Instead a character that builds
A mantle of charity that never fails
One that we carry always.

You think you cannot help
Until you have met all your needs yet
Fool, you do not know.

“Needs” will never go
You may never come to a point
When you say
My cup is full
Time to find another to fill

Instead act now
Help now
Do it now

While you fill your cup
Fill another
While you eat your bread
Share

It’s a better way to live
You will always find someone in need

Growing together now
Instead of you growing first
Taking strides together now
Instead of you finishing the race first.

It’s a new revolution
A New Age Love
Answer the voice from within.
Expand your horizons, serve with love

And you will see
What a richer experience life is
Life is not fair
It’s beautiful.

Until poverty is no more
Until our Creator says “It is done.”
Until suffering ends

And all is equal
When He comes again
To succour His faithful ones
And he will say to you
“Well done.”

A New Age Love
It’s clamouring for you
Don’t turn away.
Help. Build. Stay.

Love a brother
Save a generation forever.
Until your children’s children’s children

Can say,
The earth is ripe
There is abundant for all.

Live a good life
Leave life better.
That’s what love is.
A New Age Love.

They are also meant to motivate those who are struggling in life and help them find handlers to overcome their conflicts and challenges. It is my ardent hope that we will form networks and alliances of like-minded people who will put to right many of the wrongs in our midst. Together, we will leverage on each other's resources and create a synergistic impact in making our world a better home. These articles are written as part of regular reflection about the vicissitudes of life. They are at best work in progress and at worst, grumblings, grouses, and gripings of a finite old man. I have deliberately decided NOT to delete many of the articles and pointers that I may not agree with or are outrightly wrong. This is to keep a record of how my personal ideas, beliefs, and values have evolved over time. In addition, I hope to encourage readers by letting them know that I also make mistakes and am struggling with many of the complexity and complication in life. As long as we hang on to hope and work on finding a solution, there will be light at the end of whatever tunnel we are in. I do not pretend to know everything or for that matter, anything of substance. In fact, the more I study, learn, and think about the vast wisdom and knowledge out there, the more I realised how little I know about life and the ways of life. Hence, I have always ended my article by asking readers to continue to teach me. For I, too, am a sojourner in the exploration of truth and the adventure of finding meaning, purpose, and significance for my existence. I am proud of and make no apology for being a Christian, albeit not the most exemplary one. I believe our Creator can lead and guide us to be the best that we can ever be. I bear full responsibility for the shortcoming and error in my life, including my words. The fault is entirely mine and not due to anyone else. Readers have and can exercise the power of choice. They can discard what will not work for them and adopt those that can propel them further and faster in the pursuit of better performance, outcomes, and fulfillment. If I have disappointed or hurt you in any way, form, or manner, I would like to apologise to you. Please do not hold them against me or whoever or whatever is related to me. There are much to pray about, learn, and do. And I'll work on them with a sense of urgency. I hold on to the belief that 'Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion and excellence'. I'll endeavour to live by it. Life is short. There's no dress rehearsal and neither can we turn back the clock to change the drama of life. Therefore, by the grace and power of our Creator, let's live a full life and live it to the fullest. May God bless you abundantly on the journey of life.
