What We’ve Got

What We’ve Got

Does it matter, what we’ve got?
Some have a little, some a lot
And who is happy in this time?
Don’t guess too soon, read through this rhyme

The answer is that no-one knows
One day things change, new fortune grows
And still the answer isn’t plain
Think on these things, and think again

The games are endless, who may win?
Contestants race once they begin
And yet the questions still remain
Some live in lies, some live in pain

Look further than your shadowed friends
A chance is here to make amends
With truth and beauty, burning hot
Give thanks today for what we’ve got

What We Need

What We Need

Let us ask just what we need
Life can be simple without greed
More questions in this world of hurt
But still we may our views assert

For complications come each day
And often there’s not much to say
A politician gives a speech
We hope they’ve something good to teach

So listen closely, truth shall come
It hides for it’s too much for some
A positive thought can bring so much
Stay open-minded, keep in touch

Then one day all will pass so fast
All this we thought would always last
So let’s seek joy and wisdom heed
We’ll be surprised by what we need
