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

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

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

Who Will Know?

Who Will Know?

Within the fog then who will know?
Will all still reap just what they sow?
Remember this – the fog will clear
And truth comes in, dispelling fear

Think on then, for these times will weave
An action comes from what we believe
It may not be the one we guessed
But somehow someone knows what’s best

Despite our weakness and our doubt
We still can hope, survive the drought
A brighter day now lies in wait
Have courage, things may soon be great

Don’t worry, for that never wins
A brand new story now begins
Our gifts we’ll bring, our lives may flow
It doesn’t matter who will know

Spinning Plates

Spinning Plates

Life can be like spinning plates
Complete a task, one more awaits
So take your time and don’t rush in
No stopping things once they begin

Decisions must be made each day
Take care of what you choose to say
But don’t stay silent, that won’t do
Some work is waiting just for you

And lazy people must beware
Of simply sitting with no care
For one day time has flown away
Then only age will have its way

Take action now and make your plan
The race so long ago began
You know it’s just the fool who waits
Success may come from spinning plates

The Time Is Now

The Time Is Now

The time is now, so make a choice
And use your mind, your hands, your voice
No waiting for what may not be
Some action now could make you free

Yet what to choose in such a land?
So many still can’t understand
That life is ours to make or break
A life asleep or life awake

And lies, yes lies, are daily spread
What makes us believe what we are fed?
The hope that maybe all is well
Whilst thousands drive the road to hell

So harsh at times these words may seem
But look around, it’s not a dream
Some change we need so let’s ask how
Get up and try, the time is now

Get It Right

Get It Right

Get it right, there’s no excuse
There is forgiveness, or the noose
Chances we can take don’t end
With consequences, don’t pretend

Some hold back, others on a roll
But trying hard can take its toll
Be sure of what you want to do
And here’s the best part – see it through!

And with the current pressures here
Take my advice and have no fear
Don’t do things just because you’re told
Make choices now, you must be bold

But stay within the safety zone
These words should not leave you alone
The friends and helpers that we need
Are waiting just beyond our greed

And with the doubt that’s daily spun
No wonder things are not begun
Ignore the ones that want to fight
Just hold your course and get it right
