Holiday Times

Holiday Times

Holiday times can change your view
With places old and places new
So much to learn, explore, reflect
A break brings more than you expect

Don’t work without the hope for rest
We’re here to live, more than we guessed
Strive on with visions greater still
So far beyond the running mill

With peace of mind a mission’s clear
The answers suddenly appear
All swept away are olden doubts
Results may come when freedom shouts

So heed the call, there’s not much time
And every chance will help you climb
The web of life brings joy so clear
When holiday times again draw near

A Different View

A Different View

A different view you’re free to take
It could serve well now you’re awake
The world has changed and so have we
Not perfect, but we’re almost free

Some work to do, and more to learn
For life has taken quite a turn
Don’t doubt the lengths to which they go
A world in turmoil we all know

Then from your place, create the way
For future lives will have their say
And learning will move on from here
To worlds we never knew to fear

A great dilemma we may face
We’re standing here within the race
And asking just how much we knew
Far more comes with a different view

Not A Game

Not A Game

Life, my friend, is not a game
Remember we’re not all the same
Advice, at times, is good and true
At other times it won’t help you

For danger lurks, and troubles too
Each day, we think, there’s something new
Commitment to a worthy cause
Is what we’ll need to beat our flaws

For action happens all the time
A force for good or force for crime
Decide the best that you can do
And find the strength to see it through

Each moment all can change so fast
Good times and bad, they will not last
Perspective brings both joy and shame
We have to learn, it’s not a game
