When Things Go Wrong

When Things Go Wrong

When things go wrong, as they can do
Don’t fight too hard to find the clue
It might be something else to blame
But start your search within, with you

The world spins on, not much has changed
Of course life’s gifts are rearranged
Yet basic truths will never die
And likewise, neither you nor I

So have some faith that all is well
Although we know that time will tell
Some shocks, surprises perhaps in store
Despite disguises, life gives more

Go onwards, upwards, never stop
It’s never too busy at the top
For billions searching down below
Are looking upwards at the show

It’s quite a scene, there’s much to see
It’s not quite everyone’s cup of tea
But some will wonder if there’s more
And what their life might have in store

These souls will rise, they’ll not know why
Yet something draws them to the sky
And way beyond, where stars are born
A peaceful haven from life’s scorn

There isn’t a chance, with faith and hope
Your mission could fail – you know you’ll cope
Whatever life throws, however things fall
When things go wrong, stay standing tall

Beauty

Beauty

Always seek beauty here on earth
This world where you were given birth
For nothing else sees the way you see
Your life’s your own to wander free

Don’t be concerned by others’ scorn
Or what they think of clothes you’ve worn
You don’t owe things to earthly whim
Look beyond, for much is grim

There always will be minds that judge
Someone always bears a grudge
Don’t be the one I’m speaking of
Seek only beauty, truth and love

So simple you might think it seems
Deluded thoughts, all hopes and dreams
Yet hopes and dreams are where it’s seeded
These are things so badly needed

So then, don’t dismiss this verse
Because it didn’t drain your purse
The truth is free as are these words
And beauty flies with bees and birds

Open Minds

Open Minds
 
Never be fooled by the daily grind
You can’t each day a miracle find
Sometimes you just trudge blindly on
Exhausted, working, can’t unwind
 
But everything you daily do
Will circle through the endless stew
And reach a few who somehow care
You may not see before you’re through
 
So never give up your greatest quest
You know deep down how well you’re blessed
It’s timeless, formless to the world
But everything will have its test
 
You have to work on every piece
You can’t allow this work to cease
It’s only you who’ll make it right
Completion is what brings release
 
Remember from this moment on
You had a light which brightly shone
Without a mind that’s open now
Your future is as good as gone
 
Then don’t give up!  You must persist
And you’re just one in digital mist
A billion souls with open minds
Exciting future!  Shouldn’t be missed.

Another Man’s Pain

Another Man’s Pain by Simon J. Halliday

Struggling through a field of pain

Is brave for any soul

When it’s sunny you don’t want rain

Peace and quiet, your goal

And if you look around and see

Another’s pain is real

How can you hide within your peace

And not attempt to heal?

It’s never too late to change your mind

Whilst still alive on earth

The future’s calling all souls in

To unknown joy and worth

So give give give, but never give up

And then you’ll see it plain

Another man’s struggle will help you both

Your sun shines through his pain
