May My Soul Find The Secrets

May my soul find the secrets
Hidden deep in my heart
May the pleasure never
Ever, ever depart.

May I find justice
For the things unfairly done
And may the sun shine
On all those I love
Each and everyone.

May I find the strength
To stand up straight
And not waiver
In the thoughts
That can make me see
Greatness in all of thee.

May my soul believe
And see
All that is wondrous
In this secret place
Called me.

Tenderly, I think of you
For the world was right
When I could hold you
With no forsaken thoughts
On my mind
As we laughed and talked
And oh so tender
Were those thoughts.

Tenderly, I think of you
You were my world
You gave me life
You showed me how
To navigate throughout
Any cursed strife
To hold on, to believe
For you gave me love

Sorted, Scared

April 20, 2014

Sorted, scared
Wondering just what happened.

Foggy, blurred
Can’t conceive what I heard.

Mastering, believing
Seeing there is a way.

Still, can’t function
Can’t believe this day.

I Wonder What Would Happen

I wonder what would happen
If my heart was not whole
But fractured in many pieces
Full of anguish holes.

Would I cry?
I wonder would I die?
Would I be no more?
Can’t help but wonder
Some more.

Or would I mend that heartache
Filling the anguish with love instead
That’s what I would do
I don’t need to wonder or dread.

Now I do wonder
What would become of you?
Would you believe
And come down this happy road
Accompanying me?

Chances Are Chances

Chances are chances
Be the reason
We flee chances seen
Chances are chances.

Chances are chances
Don’t just exist
But take your chances
Make them chances
To living
Not only to exist
Chances are chances.

The Winds Of Change Are Changing

June 3, 2013

The winds of change are changing
The known is not here
We all believe in the future
We all want it to be right here.

The winds of change are changing
Bringing the future back to here
Everything we’re holding
Everything so oh so dear
Will soon be far, far in the rear.

The winds of change are changing
The present soon too, far in the rear
The future before us
Hold it close, hold it dear but
Never forget those we cherish
There now in the rear.

I Read The Old Ones

I read
The old ones
And believe
They were spun
By masters
Pass deceased.

They can see
All spread out
Far and wide
They can help me
Thru and be
The master here
Within my own
Little destiny.
