Listen Harder

Listen Harder

Listen harder, all is there
Don’t get too lost in what’s unfair
Each has a call, some work to do
So look within and start with you

Complaints will come, and problems too
No matter what you try to do
We sometimes, truly, just can’t win
But learn some more, new things begin

A dream beyond the place we’re at
A trick which waits beneath a hat
So unexpected and sublime
That all will change for good this time

You’ll see it’s time to battle on
The days of thought and rest are gone
With daily deeds we’ll work and earn
But listen harder, truly learn

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

Between The Words

Between The Words

What may lie between the words?
Is language pure, as with the birds?
Words may be twisted and controlled
Hear deeper into things you’re told

For disappointments seek the mind
Which takes as read all it can find
Too quick to believe and then to act
Each input makes a deep impact

And yet let’s not be closed or cold
We’ll take a look at what is sold
But will we buy it?  Take some care
You’ll find illusions everywhere

This world won’t stop, although we must
Let’s take a break from worldly lust
Step back and see who’s happy here
Some great surprises could be near

The ones who like to learn and grow
Who keep it simple as they sow
And then each day will reap some gain
Who can embrace both joy and pain

Don’t shy away from what is said
But check what’s entering your head
For information may be found
Between the words, without a sound
