All Can Change

All Can Change

All can change, we never can tell
Don’t take for granted heaven or hell
An open mind each day we need
Lest we are slaves to want or greed

Enigma-like this world presents
And leaves a searcher on the fence
But danger lurks for those who wait
Too much delay and you’re the bait

Be strong then in your choices now
And future days are bright somehow
For in the mind is more than guessed
An optimist is always blessed

The past is done, make no mistake
The night has passed, we’re now awake
Each action in this world, so strange
Will make a difference – all can change

Where Things May Lead

Where Things May Lead

Who can guess where things may lead?
You learn today by what you read
And then tomorrow, with surprise
You’ve somehow grown a little wise

Be careful as you fill your mind
The deeper powers are never blind
With children more than ever, look
They’re quoting from that film or book

And now with strength beyond compare
The powers that be can find you there
Fear not, but see that none escape
When intervention comes to shape

Then what if friends from distant stars
Came down to mock our feeble cars?
The game is changed and new indeed
So now let’s see where things may lead…

Wide Awake

Wide Awake

Despite the dark I’m wide awake
I see some give and others take
I’m watching from a place of hope
And forming words to help us cope

The games play on, folk live and die
Whilst ships of light are in the sky
And eyes of wisdom watch in vein
As mankind seals its fate again

A planet lost in violent greed
Whilst beauty waits in every seed
A painful lesson for the young
That songs, at times, are left unsung

So where’s the hope?  I hear you cry
These words are willing us to die
Yet die we must, one day in time
Then what’s the value of a dime?

You see my friends, all things will pass
And that’s the key, we’re like the grass
One day to grow and play our part
Then time to sow as we depart

Think positive then, our time is now
To truly learn what we’ll allow
The future world is ours to make
How shall it be?  Stay wide awake

Life Won’t Wait

Life Won’t Wait

 

Take these words, as from a mate
The simple fact is: life won’t wait
Each day will come and go in turn
Some wasted it whilst others learn

Read on and work with what you must
Don’t be a slave to greed or lust
More precious days await the mind
Which grows beyond the lost and blind

Another clue from life’s rich field
With changing views, then life may yield
If stuck then nothing moves at all
The horse still waiting in its stall

And countless moves are played each day
The game of life won’t go away
So take your place and plan your fate
For anyone, this life won’t wait

Read and Learn

Read and Learn

 

With every book you’ll read and learn
Your soul may soar or it may burn
The pains and pleasures of life’s ride
No longer from our minds may hide

The stories are of human folk
Reminding us life’s not a joke
And all are part of one great mass
Each day things change and come to pass

So where then is your mind today?
A place of work or state of play?
As seeds are planted on the land
Your dreams and visions now are planned

Then let’s dream peace and grand designs
Your mind each picture now refines
And searching is your inner soul
To reach that long-expected goal

The outward world will try to take
Each blissful dream once you’re awake
But it will fail, for deep we yearn
And more each day we read and learn
