A Wider View

A Wider View

It’s time to take a wider view
To step back now and think it through
The thoughts and actions in this time
Will bring success or lead to crime

So who are we?  Where are we bound?
The world moves on without a sound
Then one day, all becoming clear
The truth at last will reappear

Have boldness and some caution too
Start with your mission, see it through
And others see just what is done
Make time for work and time for fun

The balance is what we now seek
So much occurs within a week
Make choices now, at least a few
But always with a wider view

Too Much Choice

Too Much Choice

Too much choice this world presents
And once man’s chosen, he resents
The only answer to these days
Is simplifying all our ways

Make clear the paths for angels’ flight
They’ll find you there one deep dark night
And from that point your world has changed
Each problem strangely rearranged

For small we are but big we think
And from each challenge never shrink
But steady pace is what we’ll need
As quickly we are lost in greed

The time is short and yet it’s there
Each moment needed, be aware
For every thought can find its voice
Beware, don’t fall for too much choice
