Who We Are

Who We Are

Who we are is what we do
We say so much, not always true
No lame excuse or strange idea
Just simple truth we sometimes fear

Face up then to the light and dark
Embrace the lion, defeat the shark
Move on to pastures fresh and new
The future is awaiting you

We’re all the same yet so diverse
Expression may become a curse
A need to grow and learn each day
But tread with care your chosen way

The earth is where we’ve been so long
We need its power, we must be strong
Yet minds can move to moon and star
Don’t be afraid of who we are

The Answer

The Answer

Where’s the answer? ¬†Who could know?
What happened to interrupt the flow?
Life was so great for everyone
But now it seems all that has gone

Or is there something new to find?
Now past obsessions left our mind
A new day and a chance to move
Get in the zone or in the groove

For here we are and chances come
Too much to take, no doubt, for some
And yet each day a new surprise
You must remember how time flies

So seize the day and make your move
There’s nothing left for us to prove
Except in how we help and give
The answer’s in the way we live

The Mind

The Mind

The mind is deeper than we’d guess
Creating bliss or causing mess
With thoughts and dreams, go with the flow
Until you see what you must know

For searchers find, at least one day
That truly there will be a way
No point in hiding, holding back
Once you have found that life’s on track

Seven billion heads which think
And still this world is on the brink
So what are all these hopes and dreams?
Each moment trillions, so it seems

Unceasing is the will of man
And rightly so, there is a plan
But open up and you will find
That life goes far beyond the mind

The Future

The Future

Whatever may the future bring?
Decide the song you wish to sing
Then sing it well, for life is short
In many traps we may be caught

The answer then begins from here
The past has gone and truth draws near
Face up to what the calling needs
Into the vast unknown it leads

Have courage and a clear mind
Then things of value you may find
The search moves on from you right now
Don’t be too quick to take your bow

So simply care in all you do
And every venture follow through
With many paths, this vast array
Choose well the future from today
