Each day I rise with great surprise

To find the world before my eyes

I thank the Lord that I’m alive

And query how I still survive !

I’ve lived this life a long, long time

Indeed it’s been a tedious climb

At times I’ve thought I can’t go on

But rules are what life’s based upon !

Forgive me Lord for doubting You

What e’er You’ve taught, it is all true

I’ll carry on,  I promise this

And know that life is not all bliss !

I have thought myself alone

On the precipice of fate

With the hope I can atone

As it’s never out of date.

I have dreamt for many years

That our dreams are not quite real

But reflections of our fears

And the passions that we feel !

The mind has trod a narrow path

With subtle warnings nature hath

Endowed the shadows of the past

In tyrannies that failed to last.

We find ourselves in madness caught

Another lesson to be taught

Insanities surround us all

How shall we answer to the call ?

Our lives so very full of pain

When shall we feel alright again ?

 

 

I AM NOT FREE ( 2016 ) 2016/08/22

In the world each tomorrow brings

I hear the songs the siren sings

It calls my name both loud and clear

What is it that I have to fear ?

Perhaps twill be that I won’t know

The path to take or way to go

Or rather that I may not feel

That all of this is true or real ?

The world I sight with my own eyes

Is full of doubt and much surprise

It’s power is consuming me

Somehow I’m sure I am not free !

 

 

DON’T COUNT ME OUT ( 2016 ) 2016/08/16

There is a place that I hold dear

A time I feel my God is near

In early morn when I arise

And daylight slowly fills the skies

Tis then my senses start to feel

And waken to a world that ‘s real.

Oh what a joy each day does bring

As blessings soon start happening

I close my eyes and say a prayer

And have no fear for God is there

While those around are full of doubt

I beg You Lord, don’t count me out !

 

STRANGE ( 2013 ) 2013/11/02

How can it be that we grow old

And watch our lives as they unfold

Yet never note how all this change

Has come about, I find it strange.

Our mind has eyes that do not see

Enslaved by greed we are not free

While hearts that love are left alone

To build foundations stone by stone.

Where is the joy in how we live,

Who owns the gift we do not give ?
