If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Dona Nobis Pacem... There is Hope...

Begin each day with a grateful heart
Let the morning breeze augur a fresh start
Oh, there is hope... there is hope...
God, grant thy people a way to cope...

Besieged by nature's wrath
Let mankind find the rightful path
Amidst the baffling global climate change
Sadly, humanity is also placed in war-torn range
Too many souls perish each day... all for naught!

Freedom, once suppressed, is cause for distraught
Oh, there is hope... there is hope...
Refrain from going down the slippery slope...

Pursue that which creates harmony
Embrace that which promotes unity
Accept each other's flaws
Coexistence is a worthy cause
Every man will one day learn to let go of blame...

Dona Nobis Pacem!

Indeed, there is hope... there is hope...

And yet the world is more hateful than ever. I am sad that peace seems so far out of reach. Love your graphics however.

Have a terrific day Bing. :)

Bing Yap November 4, 2012 at 12:45 AM  

sandee, i remain hopeful that one day soon we will attain the PEACE that we all so yearn...we all just have to learn to live and put up with each other...love, compassion, understanding- then this world will be a better place.♥

Nicely done as an anagram--it flows quite naturally, like a prayer. "There s hope" is a powerful refrain.

Bing Yap November 4, 2012 at 11:43 AM  

thanks for the nice words, susan♥

There is hope indeed. Love your peace globe and anagram. Peace be with you, now and always.

I like the format you chose for this post, with words sincerely written.

Thank you for participating in "poetry for peace" on Real Toads.

Your poem reminded me of my favorite quote from Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace. "Pierre's insanity consisted in not waiting, as he used to do, to discover personal attributes which he termed 'good qualities' in people before loving them; his heart was now overflowing with love, and by loving people without cause he discovered indubitable causes for loving them." The character only came to this peace on the other side of war, though. What a strange world we live in.

Wonderful post!

Best peace blessings to you this day.

Wow awesome acrostic and message, you are very talented.

Mary November 4, 2012 at 10:12 PM  

Yes, there is always hope; and your poem so well expresses that! Co-existance definitely IS a worthy cause. Thanks for sharing with Poetry Pantry today!

Your Peace globe is beautiful as well as your message.

Serena November 4, 2012 at 11:46 PM  

Thank you for the hopeful and uplifting message... there is hope, there is hope, and there is! What a beautiful tribute to peace. What more worthy cause is there?

Jennifer Wagner November 5, 2012 at 12:32 AM  

I love this uplifting write of yours. The repetition of "there is hope" is effective...when we feel hopeless, or near it, it's so good to be encouraged that "there is hope!"

Sherry Blue Sky November 5, 2012 at 12:54 AM  

Bing, your globe is fantastic. So beautiful. I love your poem as well, especially the refrain of hope (after going down the slippery slope) - yes, I so agree.........lovely to see you posting again, kiddo! We missed you.

Unknown November 5, 2012 at 1:02 AM  

Love how you created your poem! Hopefully you are right - every man will one day learn to let go of blame!

Anonymous November 5, 2012 at 2:10 AM  

Clever build! I really, really, like the scheme you employed.

I loved seeing "auger." Also, the move from "naught" to "distraught" was nicely done.

Travis Cody November 5, 2012 at 2:23 AM  

Your Peace Globe is beautiful.

Peace to you and yours on this Blog Blast Day and in all the days to come.

Annelisa November 5, 2012 at 3:45 AM  

Such a beautiful Peaceglobe and poem...I am moved! Peace to you and yours!

What a beautiful peace globe and words. Thanks for the hope you have conveyed!

Hopefully that day to let go of blame will come soon, it is surely needed. Thank you for sharing,

Kay L. Davies November 5, 2012 at 9:55 AM  

I love your optimism and your strength, so abundant in this piece.

Sarav November 5, 2012 at 10:34 AM  

I absolutely love this! The optimism, the beauty, everything. It should be posted and read every day--With hope all things are possible. Just lovely :-)

my heart's love songs November 5, 2012 at 11:41 AM  

beautifully written ! we must hold onto a shred of hope!

Madeleine Begun Kane November 5, 2012 at 3:57 PM  

Beautifully done! And I know how tough acrostic poems are!

Bing Yap November 5, 2012 at 6:48 PM  

thanks to all of you for appreciating my post and for your kind words. ♥

Laura Maria November 6, 2012 at 1:13 AM  

Thoughtful piece. The repetition worked great.

Sabio Lantz November 6, 2012 at 5:56 PM  

Sweet poem.
Clever graphics and lay out.

Accepting each other's flaws is important.

But I have no hope that "every man will one day learn to let go of blame ..." and will always act cautiously knowing that is not true.

Bing Yap November 6, 2012 at 8:46 PM  

laura and sabio, thanks for stopping by.

sabio, i'm not gonna give up on that one... one day... perhaps someday, man will learn from his own mistakes and decide to stop blaming others and take responsibility. :)

Janet Gardner November 7, 2012 at 11:30 AM  

Beautifully said, nice post!
Love ya,
Janet :)

Hannah November 7, 2012 at 9:04 PM  

Such a complete effort in this post...I really appreciate each detail that you've added, Bing.

The words evoked from the word "peace," in your acrostic are powerful.

God's blessings to you as well. ♥

Bing Yap November 8, 2012 at 7:43 AM  

love ya too, girl. thanks janet ♥

Bing Yap November 8, 2012 at 7:44 AM

Bing - Not only did you build a beautiful peace globe graphically, but you also cleverly put together an acrostic poem for the day. It is a beautiful combination.
Such talent you have!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
