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

Winds Of Change

Winds Of Change

Strongly blow the winds of change
This world at times can rearrange
And all you thought you knew so well
Transformed beyond what you can tell

A strange and happy twist of fate
An answer coming now, so late
Don’t ask the reason for this shift
At times we just receive a gift

The sender lives so far away
Beyond the clouds, no night or day
Another world, another plane
Aware of all our loss and gain

So sleeping we receive the news
And somehow change and build our views
To vistas rich with good intent
A beauty which will not relent

Within this veil of earthly charms
We notice also men of arms
Still hoping war moves out of range
And love’s swept in on winds of change
