Why So Much?

Why So Much?

Why so much?  It never ends!
One man denies, and one pretends
Some lies and we will never know
Or will we?  How will this world go?

Take care and notice every beat
It’s hard but details you will meet
And in these things the truth can hide
Whilst trust the small-print may divide

For friends are hard to find, it’s true
So search some more, they seek you too
And when the connection’s made at last
That searching now is in the past

So live with courage, live some more
Don’t doubt great things still lie in store
Keep talking, asking, stay in touch
And then you’ll know why there’s so much

Pressure

Pressure

When the pressure’s mounting up
Remember to review life’s cup
It overflows or runs clean dry
And only you can guess at why

Life can be hard at times, it’s true
It doesn’t matter where or who
So complex is this world we’re in
We could but guess where to begin

Take time then, look around awhile
Perhaps change your pattern, or your style
No prizes for the lost and weak
But help them find the things they seek

A truly helpful soul is rare
Most ones you’ll meet can only stare
But now and then true friends are there
Reminding you that still they care

So journey onward through the rain
It’s time to make your stand again
And as for me, I’m just like you
Let’s hope this pressure drives us through
