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

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

Beyond The Tears

Beyond The Tears

What may wait beyond the tears?
A brand new day without those fears
A chance to change and start once more
Whilst great new visions wash ashore

The world is vast and yet so small
We’re all just waiting, on the ball
As outside forces bide their time
Observing every hope and crime

Take time, reflect, and don’t rush in
There is no end, so why begin?
A reason for each thought and move
So ask yourself, what must I prove?

Believe beyond the worldly grind
There’s always more to keep in mind
Move on right now, waste no more years
For life awaits beyond the tears

The Train

The Train

Don’t be a fool and miss the train
It will not pass this way again
So jump aboard and take this ride
Your future now is open wide

And yet beware with such a mind
For searchers, in the end, will find
What can be done by those who know?
The burden now can never go

A world of beauty and of vice
One man eats cake, one hopes for rice
And ‘powers’ we know one day will fall
Still play their game, no doubts at all

Let us then in our faith be true
Let’s hope each day for something new
Respecting old ways, wanting more
We’re on the train – what lies in store?

A Single Thought

A Single Thought

A single thought creates a brand
Or helps a nation make its stand
It causes love to start or stop
And every chance to take or drop

The power within each thought is raw
No cost at all, there’s still no law
And police will also want some dreams
For all are human, so it seems

So moving on from what we’ve learned
The tears were shed, the fingers burned
We reach the place where we can see
The future, in its infancy

So hold this thought from this day on
The past, each moment, now has gone
And life goes on, great visions sought
But each begins a single thought

Dream of More

Dream of More

Who can know what lies in store?
The answer’s no-one.  Dream of more
The only one who has the power
Is you, within the dreaming hour

We all are subject to life’s whim
Don’t believe the tales that all is grim
For some will prosper as we cry
And every day life passes by

Be patient too, but don’t miss out
There’s time to wait and time to shout
Your voice is there for you to use
It can instruct, complain, amuse

And in the web of tangled thought
You’ll find that peace cannot be bought
A million pounds could wash ashore
But still, you’ll find, you’ll dream of more
