A Different View

A Different View

A different view you’re free to take
It could serve well now you’re awake
The world has changed and so have we
Not perfect, but we’re almost free

Some work to do, and more to learn
For life has taken quite a turn
Don’t doubt the lengths to which they go
A world in turmoil we all know

Then from your place, create the way
For future lives will have their say
And learning will move on from here
To worlds we never knew to fear

A great dilemma we may face
We’re standing here within the race
And asking just how much we knew
Far more comes with a different view

Beat the Storm

Beat The Storm

The time has come to beat the storm
No matter what its current form
Above the turmoil you may fly
And looking down you’ll then see why

Perspective is an open book
For some read well but some don’t look
So arm yourself with all you can
Don’t choose to be a lesser man

No-one could argue when you’re sure
They’ll try, but you will bring some more
No stopping you when in full flow
Some stay and learn but others go

Keep working then, in time they’ll see
And all the while you will be free
To be yourself, secure and warm
With fire and peace, you beat the storm

See It Through

See It Through

The ball is rolling – see it through
A few more things you’ll need to do
But when it’s done, no looking back
It’s not the time for you to slack

For nothing ever was complete
When people didn’t move their feet
With action you can slay the beast
Return from work, enjoy your feast

There’s so much now awaiting you
Relax a little, change your view
And all the answers will be seen
From all the places we have been

Be bold and sure, no compromise
The truth may wear a good disguise
Yet still your song reveals the clue
Success comes when you see it through

Within A Day

Within A Day

 

So much may come within a day
Your world can change, no words could say
How many things will realign
Beyond your dreams you’ll see the sign

And onward into pastures new
A thousand helpers pull you through
When hope was gone the magic came
And things will never be the same

Keep searching then, if you’re in doubt
For no-one should be left without
The future comes, no time to wait
Keep swimming on, ignore the bait

One moment and the vision’s clear
You’ve beaten every crazy fear
And life begins to pave its way
All this, somehow, within a day

Another Day

Another Day

Here we are, another day
Think what we learned just yesterday
A new horizon looming now
Don’t worry where or why or how

For all shall come to honest souls
There’s more to life than dreams and goals
The nuts and bolts of every task
Are not too far behind the mask

The work we do will soon reach all
And who is waiting for your call?
Responses come and life moves on
All yesterdays again are gone

The message now should be so clear
The answers really must be near
The past has taught, but on the way
Once more for all, another day

Caring Souls

Caring Souls

Always search for caring souls
They’ll help you grow and reach your goals
So much around this world, it’s mad
And most of it will leave you sad

The struggle is for everyone
To find their place, for hope’s not gone
The chances breed each day like mice
Choose virtue every day, not vice

And when you meet a testing mind
They’ll be delighted by their find
An open heart and will to win
With courage, ready to begin

More questions come at times, I know
Some answers words can never show
But now take heart, for life still rolls
Look out each day for caring souls
