The Soulless Void

The Soulless Void

The soulless void is here, you know
Don’t dwell on it, just let it go
For it consumes your every hope
Until you can no longer cope

So rise above this beast of doom
It’s Easter-time, escape the tomb
In every facet of our lives
Some hope exists, good fortune strives

The work we do lives on from here
Take comfort in the truth that’s near
With every smile and helpful word
Some great new good once more occurred

We may not see where things moved on
For one day we will all be gone
Let’s help the evil be destroyed
Farewell now to the soulless void

The Other Side

The Other Side

What waits on the other side?
Is life a dream once we have died?
The world has things we like to do
But one day this will all be through

Be not afraid, we’re told to hear
For nothing’s ever helped by fear
Think to the future, life goes on
Beyond this world once we are gone

Respecting life and helping all
A doctor must fulfill his call
And yet the day will come at last
When drugs and knives are in the past

For souls are free and have to move
A body has no case to prove
It lives and dies with all the rest
But souls live on and stand the test

Look deeper then around this land
And one day all will understand
We’re here to help, enjoy the ride
But keep in mind the other side

Wide Awake

Wide Awake

Despite the dark I’m wide awake
I see some give and others take
I’m watching from a place of hope
And forming words to help us cope

The games play on, folk live and die
Whilst ships of light are in the sky
And eyes of wisdom watch in vein
As mankind seals its fate again

A planet lost in violent greed
Whilst beauty waits in every seed
A painful lesson for the young
That songs, at times, are left unsung

So where’s the hope?  I hear you cry
These words are willing us to die
Yet die we must, one day in time
Then what’s the value of a dime?

You see my friends, all things will pass
And that’s the key, we’re like the grass
One day to grow and play our part
Then time to sow as we depart

Think positive then, our time is now
To truly learn what we’ll allow
The future world is ours to make
How shall it be?  Stay wide awake

Truth Will Win

Truth Will Win

Through the years, despite our sin
There’s never doubt that truth will win
It simply is, none could complain
When faced with it, so clear again

So if you’re lost in countless lies
Get ready for a new surprise
For once you take the devil’s road
Then angels bring light overload

Your mind is lifted way beyond
You’d think God waved a magic wand
And all is changed beyond your dreams
To write it down needs countless reams

And know just as a child can see
The keys are there, all may be free
Today’s the day it must begin
Your heart will open, truth will win
