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

Stay On Course

Stay On Course

It mostly pays to stay on course
Some magic comes, no need to force
A steady-handed even keel
Will all good things, in time, reveal

As fools rush in where angels wait
The rat which dies fell for the bait
The tests and traps are endless here
They’re waiting just beyond our fear

So caution, then, will always pay
Who wants their life in disarray?
Slow down and think, good friend of mine
And then the light of truth will shine

Keep going with the work you planned
The sea will rage, so search for land
Life will move onward, back to source
Just be yourself and stay on course

Travel On

Travel On

There’s more to learn here, travel on
The childish dreams have long since gone
Escape the cage you chose to take
All things can happen once awake

You’ll find the thing you made now works
And yet beware, for danger lurks
Choose well which mask now to adorn
New chances every day are born

Think back to when the world began
And here we are, so what’s the plan?
So small we are, so big we think
No wonder lives are on the brink

We have so much, so what’s it for?
Let’s think today, not just want more
For life won’t bring that dream, sublime
Until we learn to take our time

We move as far into the throng
As we move in, or all goes wrong
So let’s reflect on what has gone
And then, with hope, we’ll travel on

The Game Of Life

The Game Of Life

If life’s a game then who has won?
The sour-faced banker in the sun?
Or lazy Joe who sits and plays
Each day new toys that shall amaze

Or perhaps the quiet, thoughtful soul
Who patiently works to his goal
Can he enjoy each day that comes
Whilst drinking water, eating crumbs

Let’s see the gangster in his lair
Does any joy attend him there?
So lost and feeling so much power
Whilst this erodes with every hour

And how about the spying mind
With phones and cameras never blind
Could this man have some inner peace
Or perhaps his fears each day increase

Well maybe to the arts we’ll turn
A broke musician, hopes which burn
Are joyful times his own to keep?
Or does he seek somewhere to sleep?

Then how about the hidden souls
Beyond the veil which has no holes
Behind the curtain you can’t see
Are they the ones now truly free?

Keep searching friend, for all shall come
When not content with being numb
Each one of us can learn and love
Stay open for what waits above

And in the future all is new
Those endless years slide out of view
Surprises come from out of strife
Play on, play on, the game of life

Getting Through

Getting Through

Sometimes enough just getting through
Although I want much more for you
Yet life can be a tricky thing
So learn to talk before you sing

And when the world seems cold and cruel
Remember not to give it fuel
Stay focused on the task at hand
When finished then you’ll understand

A roller-coaster in these times
No end to those deluded crimes
But through the darkness comes a light
It may awake you in the night

So keep a watch, good friend of mine
And learn to read with every sign
Great things await both me and you
But just for now, we’re getting through

Giving Up

Giving Up

No good would come from giving up
For still half full is life’s great cup
Seek out success and what may be
Fine things will come but not for free

Don’t dwell on past mistakes or loss
A rolling stone rejects the moss
And finds its way to pastures new
A cleansing river, crystal blue

Look up and see the circling birds
Then far beyond these meager words
Are worlds of light and minds of power
Which work to find you every hour

Amidst the humdrum thoughts which press
A ray of hope will come to bless
Reminding all that life moves on
And thoughts of giving up – all gone
