Another Day

Another Day

Here we are, another day
Think what we learned just yesterday
A new horizon looming now
Don’t worry where or why or how

For all shall come to honest souls
There’s more to life than dreams and goals
The nuts and bolts of every task
Are not too far behind the mask

The work we do will soon reach all
And who is waiting for your call?
Responses come and life moves on
All yesterdays again are gone

The message now should be so clear
The answers really must be near
The past has taught, but on the way
Once more for all, another day

Stay On Course

Stay On Course

It mostly pays to stay on course
Some magic comes, no need to force
A steady-handed even keel
Will all good things, in time, reveal

As fools rush in where angels wait
The rat which dies fell for the bait
The tests and traps are endless here
They’re waiting just beyond our fear

So caution, then, will always pay
Who wants their life in disarray?
Slow down and think, good friend of mine
And then the light of truth will shine

Keep going with the work you planned
The sea will rage, so search for land
Life will move onward, back to source
Just be yourself and stay on course

Time To Try

Time To Try

Time to try, improve our lot
Just look around, see what we’ve got
At times it seems not much success
And then look closely, through the mess

Each day things change and who can tell
What you could make, or find, or sell
A mind awake has every chance
To think again, a second glance

The places you could go aren’t few
A different route, a different view
Keep searching as you find your way
There’s always more to do and say

Ignore the doubters and the fear
A searcher knows the truth is near
No time to wonder how or why
It’s time for action – time to try

Through It All

Through It All

Never doubting, through it all
With dignity we will stand tall
The end is clear, you see the signs
Amidst the chaos hope still shines

Pandora’s box was open wide
So long before our leaders lied
The fire was set way back in time
Seek well when looking for the crime

The pride of nations some day falls
But in the darkness, one voice calls
It leads us on through what remains
The worldly wreckage brought no gains

So phoenix-like it’s time to rise
Through countless sins and desperate lies
The world is waiting, let’s not stall
Take action now, see through it all

Never Quit

Never Quit

Never quit – a new day waits
I know just what the devil hates
A cheerful smile and helpful friends
Who know life never really ends

The fight’s worthwhile, the goal is sure
And countless joys are all in store
Hold on with all you have, my friends
Your life’s much more than current trends

Look deep within whenever you can
For endless is the soul of man
The journey outwards, also in
And from right here it can begin

Don’t doubt potential in yourself
There’s no such thing as ‘on the shelf’
We’re here to try, the fuse is lit
So do your best and never quit
