Purity



Purity of the mind,
body, spirit and soul,
in all that we do,
shall be seen to be
goodness,
as a whole.

Purity within the heart,
for healthy living,
for love, kindness,
generosity and
forgiving.

Purity to be true
and not bear falseness
or deceive.
Your words and actions,
will by another,
be respected and
to believe.

Purity in thought,
word and deed,
shall journey far and
wide.
Carefully composed,
not hastily,
but with diligence,
in every stride.

Purity of peace,
calm and not to be
upset, at trivia or lesser
matters.
Allowing such, shall surely
have you going around in
circles,
physically and mentally,
in tatters.

Purity to have wisdom
and knowledge,
in everything you do,
to believe what is right.
You should not be criticized,
for the best of your knowledge
and belief to know the difference
and having sound foresight.

Purity and serenity,
go hand in hand,
the person that possesses
such qualities,
is indeed a gifted and
fortunate individual.
Certainly, a phenonomen,
to hold head up high and
without fear, favour or
ill will,
to walk the land.

Victor Gatenby

My name is Victor John Gatenby, born in 1958 and native of North Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. I am a researcher of genealogy and started to write poetry in 2002, after retiring from public service. Having a creative and compassionate mind, for helping people, that is in my scope to do, I find that by writing poetry, not only expresses my life thoughts, but I feel, gives meaning and inspiration to others. Whether it be fictional or based on fact, the poetry I write will always be read differently and have a differing meaning from one person to the next. My aim is to give a pleasure to the reader without the poetry being too complex or deep, so as not to be understood or enjoyed. Much of my poetry is based upon life events and perceptions. I find that works well and I can draw upon my own experiences, to put into poetry, a literary art form.Those that read my poetry, I hope gain something from it and enjoy reading the same. At the same time, I am committed to contributing to Poetry.com and it's community, by reading the work of other's and appropriately recording constructive criticism and rating work, without prejudice. I expect my work to be critiqued also with respect and common sense. I have a zero tolerant attitude towards any inappropriate work, words, remarks etc.V J Gatenby (Author) more…
