Where Is Truth?

Where Is Truth?

Where is truth?  It’s time to ask
And who could be up to the task?
You’ll find so many went before
Not guessing what life held in store

Have caution in the search, my friend
For life is fragile, all must end
But that’s no reason to back down
Find meaning now, in vale and town

The past has more than we may guess
Don’t move too fast amidst life’s mess
Mistakes are rife, and who’s immune?
With too much pride you’ll lose love’s tune

Think deeply then, and make your move
There’s nothing left to lose or prove
And when tomorrow comes around
You may find truth, at last, is found

Commitment

Commitment

Commitment is a force that wins
It beats a thousand lies and sins
For when you meet the one that’s sure
You’ll see their goal and nothing more

A barren wasteland you may find
When searching through this humankind
But when at last you’ve found the gold
Then all has changed from days of old

Wherever life may lead, take heart
We knew the story from the start
To suffer has its place, my friend
And often it is worth the end

Hold on then, for the world is small
A silent, spinning, puzzle-ball
Seek out the truth with peace in mind
Commitment brings what you defined

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

Get It Right

Get It Right

Get it right, there’s no excuse
There is forgiveness, or the noose
Chances we can take don’t end
With consequences, don’t pretend

Some hold back, others on a roll
But trying hard can take its toll
Be sure of what you want to do
And here’s the best part – see it through!

And with the current pressures here
Take my advice and have no fear
Don’t do things just because you’re told
Make choices now, you must be bold

But stay within the safety zone
These words should not leave you alone
The friends and helpers that we need
Are waiting just beyond our greed

And with the doubt that’s daily spun
No wonder things are not begun
Ignore the ones that want to fight
Just hold your course and get it right

Time And Space

Time And Space

What could hide through time and space?
A trillion things beyond our race
And here we are still chasing dreams
Whilst being watched, or so it seems

Who thought that we could be alone?
This world we’re on we’ll never own
We come and go, not asking why
For higher gifts we rarely try

So wasteful man will be observed
His greed and hatred never served
Except to keep the truth away
This nursery world where fools still play

And what is waiting at the end?
Some say nothing, let’s pretend
Whole worlds will pass which hide their face
They’re simply lost in time and space
