My Fortune Is In My Hands

My Fortune I suppose
Is in my hands
The coming and going
Of goodness, happiness
Is in my command.

No soaked coat
Laden with anger
Can cover me
Or make my way
A forsaken land.

I will, I can
See my fortune ahead
Waiting to take my hand.

Let Me

Let me lie at your feet

My life in disarray

Let me see you seek

The good in everyday

Let me feel your heart beat

Goodness with every beat

And finally

Let me be part of all

You do and say

All my life

In every way.

Memories Keep Me Alive

Memories keep me alive
Memories of happiness
And then those
I just survived.

They aren’t all bad
Nor filled with just
Goodness and delight.

They are of my life
The one that unfolds
Here in the mist
Of memories I behold.

Some untold.

Hear The Wind Blow

September 19, 2012
















Hear the wind blow
Blowing goodness
Health and prosperity
Into the arms of the waiting
Suffocating dread
Hurt and disaster.

Blowing, blowing
Blowing fresh, pure air
Into the lives of believers
Hear the wind blow
Blowing our troubles

The World Is Round

July 3, 2012

The world is round
And  goodness does abound
Stop and listen
Listen to the sound
Of heaven and earth
Here near the depths of existence
I have found.

Don’t be deterred
Be stirred to live
A life of goodness
Here on earth
Where we all find joy
And happiness surrounds us
In a way that is profound.

Listen, listen to the sound
Of happiness as it
clamours to be found.
