POEM: 'When you go to work, try to create harmony'

• LORENA ROBINSON,  lives in La Salle.


“Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me,”

But the hardest thing to do is start,

So everyone must do their part.

The family is the place to begin,

to teach our children and kin not to sin.

When you go to work, try to create harmony.

If someone is sad or blue, do your part to help them through.

Put a smile on your face,

and that will make it a more cheery place.

I have one basic clue —

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

If this would happen, wars would end

and everyone would have a friend.

There would be “Peace on Earth.”

It all begins with you.

And that is true!
