Don’t Waste Time

Don’t Waste Time

Don’t waste time, there isn’t much
And quickly you’ll be out of touch
The battle’s only just begun
Why walk when it is time to run?

Get on with it! ¬†There’s lots to do
And people waiting just for you
Your gifts and work are needed now
Keep doing things, not asking how

Procrastination never wins
It just makes space for extra sins
A busy person’s good to know
You’ll learn from them the way to go

 Enjoy the day and build some more
You’ll never know what waits in store
So keep the faith, ignore the crime
You’ll learn more when you don’t waste time

Thinking Big

Thinking Big

When thinking big, great changes come
This thought seems too far-fetched for some
Yet every action once began
With simple thought amidst life’s plan

So check the nature of your thought
The power is vast, don’t sell it short
The future will depend on this
A nightmare or a life of bliss

Decisions every day are there
Again with thought we must take care
No fear, but measured choices now
Will future dreams at least allow

For all can be, no limits here
Through many highways we must steer
Enjoy the ride, don’t stop to dig
The best is called by thinking big

Pressure

Pressure

When the pressure’s mounting up
Remember to review life’s cup
It overflows or runs clean dry
And only you can guess at why

Life can be hard at times, it’s true
It doesn’t matter where or who
So complex is this world we’re in
We could but guess where to begin

Take time then, look around awhile
Perhaps change your pattern, or your style
No prizes for the lost and weak
But help them find the things they seek

A truly helpful soul is rare
Most ones you’ll meet can only stare
But now and then true friends are there
Reminding you that still they care

So journey onward through the rain
It’s time to make your stand again
And as for me, I’m just like you
Let’s hope this pressure drives us through

Always More

Always More

Don’t have a doubt, there’s always more
Good fortune comes when you are sure
The answers to the quest you’re on
Will start to come once fears have gone

Search harder and the dream is there
It waits until you truly care
And then, emerging from the deep
Delights which you may always keep

Beyond the daily toil we see
So much still waits in you and me
Go slow now, for the future’s bright
Too much too soon would blind our sight

Unceasing is the life we lead
Potential way beyond our greed
So take a step and watch with awe
As you will see, there’s always more

Down To Earth

Down To Earth

It’s good to get back down to earth
Not sure just what the flight was worth
A thousand suns and distant lands
Beyond all artists, writers, bands

And once you know we’re not alone
Your thoughts are never set in stone
The changes which may come, immense
At times like this, stay on the fence

Observe the changes, watch life flow
Stay positive and keep that glow
Ignore the hatred, help the weak
Keep working, strive to reach your peak

The future world is ours to make
Keep close to loved ones, stay awake
We dream beyond our place of birth
But still we must be down to earth

The Fear Of Life

The Fear Of Life

Never have the fear of life
It crushes dreams and causes strife
Nowhere to go when in this place
You dare not even show your face

Have courage and the will to win
Then all good things at last begin
The future’s bright and all can see
That soon will come your victory

Some try to hinder, don’t give in
Move forward and beyond this sin
Your life’s your own to use at will
But take good care, have caution still

No-one could know where this will end
Some say they do, but just pretend
A veil of dreams, confusion rife
It’s time to beat the fear of life

Listen Harder

Listen Harder

Listen harder, all is there
Don’t get too lost in what’s unfair
Each has a call, some work to do
So look within and start with you

Complaints will come, and problems too
No matter what you try to do
We sometimes, truly, just can’t win
But learn some more, new things begin

A dream beyond the place we’re at
A trick which waits beneath a hat
So unexpected and sublime
That all will change for good this time

You’ll see it’s time to battle on
The days of thought and rest are gone
With daily deeds we’ll work and earn
But listen harder, truly learn
