Poetry that Makes a Difference

Sometimes Poetry that makes a difference in our lives is worth remembering and recording. Here are a few poems that have made a difference for me:

“IF” This is a modest rewrite of Rudyard Kipling’s timeless “IF” to make it more specifically spiritual – a poem for our times.


“Hangman” – Maurice Ogden’s classic statement about the Nazi Holocaust. A worthwhile read for anyone with a deep personal concern for injustice against others.
