The Outer Edge

The Outer Edge

The outer edge is where they live
Still watching as we take and give
One day the world will change for good
And then too late for ‘could’ or ‘would’

A time to think on who we are
The times we failed or went too far
And then to start with something new
Before our dreams slide out of view

We’re all the same within this place
Don’t be afraid to show your face
And if you are, then heed these words
You’re weaker than the bees and birds

For whom may words like this have use?
Who knows? ¬†At times they’re far too loose
But leave the toys, no time to hedge
They’re coming from the outer edge

Who We Are

Who We Are

Who we are is what we do
We say so much, not always true
No lame excuse or strange idea
Just simple truth we sometimes fear

Face up then to the light and dark
Embrace the lion, defeat the shark
Move on to pastures fresh and new
The future is awaiting you

We’re all the same yet so diverse
Expression may become a curse
A need to grow and learn each day
But tread with care your chosen way

The earth is where we’ve been so long
We need its power, we must be strong
Yet minds can move to moon and star
Don’t be afraid of who we are
