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

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
