All Can Change

All Can Change

All can change, we never can tell
Don’t take for granted heaven or hell
An open mind each day we need
Lest we are slaves to want or greed

Enigma-like this world presents
And leaves a searcher on the fence
But danger lurks for those who wait
Too much delay and you’re the bait

Be strong then in your choices now
And future days are bright somehow
For in the mind is more than guessed
An optimist is always blessed

The past is done, make no mistake
The night has passed, we’re now awake
Each action in this world, so strange
Will make a difference – all can change

Fire

Fire

 

See the fire and watch it burn
So many lessons we can learn
With brutal beauty, cleansing all
Into its spell we all could fall

All things are taken by its will
It’s thrilling for it’s never still
It hypnotises as it glows
But never kind or mercy shows

Uncompromising power so raw
It knows no bounds and has no law
An orange villain, no disguise
The closest witness also dies

Then treat with care this violent friend
He touches things, they’ll never mend
Respect him – he’s no fool or liar
His power is awesome, learn from fire

Mysterious Jack

Mysterious Jack

Here comes old mysterious Jack
When he’s around you’ll never slack
For when he’s near, strange things occur
And long-forgotten thoughts will stir

A quiet man with hidden power
He’ll keep you guessing every hour
You may decide he’s not your friend
But he’ll still reach you in the end

Be on your guard when Jack appears
He has a way of finding fears
And somehow all your life is known
To Jack’s wise mind, where truth is grown

You may think that you’d been quite clever
But Jack can see forever and ever
He’s not the Lord but they have met
And Jack knows things you ain’t seen yet

Then if you find this life gets dull
Watch out, for soon it may be full
When turning corners watch your back
In deepest shadows you’ll find old Jack

Know Your Mind

Know Your Mind

The time has come to know your mind
Search deeply, see what you can find
And then move forward, vision clear
With greater hope, and in top gear

You’ll help a million people now
You’ll have the strength to show them how
Look back and see you had to grow
So many things you didn’t know

And in these times, where all can be
Make space and time, but peacefully
Reflect on things and why they come
To simply be is hard for some

Much more will be achieved by those
Who think it through, this always shows
So take your time and don’t be blind
It’s priceless when you know your mind

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
