The problem that confronts us today, and which the nearest future is to solve, ishow to be oneself, and yet in oneness with others, to feel deeply with all humanbeings and still retain one’s own characteristic qualities.
Emma Goldman, 1906
Long ago in the mixing
we were shaken
in every direction
of the sky and the land.
To survive now we must
be at peace in our hearts
understand one another
and bravely remember
we are all, one by one, cousins.
Let’s meet one another
here now on earth before
we become heavenly ancestors
wearing a necklace of stars
visible to our heirs.

Best Poems From Weweni By Margaret Noodin
Here are some of the best poems from Weweni by Margaret Noodin.
‘To be or not to be’ if that’s the question, I would always want to be who I am – a lover, who binges on ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ every Christmas; that is, if she decides not to wallow in bed with ‘Wuthering Heights’! The other thing that I absolutely love is weddings! Well, who doesn’t like being in a room full of love stories, eh?!
