The Outer Edge

The Outer Edge

The outer edge is where they live
Still watching as we take and give
One day the world will change for good
And then too late for ‘could’ or ‘would’

A time to think on who we are
The times we failed or went too far
And then to start with something new
Before our dreams slide out of view

We’re all the same within this place
Don’t be afraid to show your face
And if you are, then heed these words
You’re weaker than the bees and birds

For whom may words like this have use?
Who knows? ¬†At times they’re far too loose
But leave the toys, no time to hedge
They’re coming from the outer edge

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

Where Things May Lead

Where Things May Lead

Who can guess where things may lead?
You learn today by what you read
And then tomorrow, with surprise
You’ve somehow grown a little wise

Be careful as you fill your mind
The deeper powers are never blind
With children more than ever, look
They’re quoting from that film or book

And now with strength beyond compare
The powers that be can find you there
Fear not, but see that none escape
When intervention comes to shape

Then what if friends from distant stars
Came down to mock our feeble cars?
The game is changed and new indeed
So now let’s see where things may lead…
