Rooms of the Mind

Our states of mind are like different rooms.
Some of wonder. Some of gloom.
We go out of one and in another.
Each one is different to the other.

We know not what we'll find inside.
And we might wish to try and hide.
Some rooms be dark. Some rooms be light.
Some be with joy and some with fright.

Each one may contain certain rules.
With different objects and different tools.
With chall...

Controlling Our Lives?

Do we choose who we really are?
Do we decide what things we do?
Do we have the power to shape our lives?
And make our dreams come true?

Do we have a say what is in store?
And what will be our fate?
Are we in full control our minds?
Can we help it's happy state?

Or do the gods govern this world?
Is there any point in resistance?
But if you ask me who's really in charge,
I say we cont...

Mornings

I adore each morning,
For so content I do feel.
A new day has arrived.
And it does always appeal.

Yesterday troubles
Are now in the past.
So I look to the future.
Those problems have passed.

I do relish the peace,
And this crisp new air,
Feeling all calm and refreshed.
In this world that we share.

So savour each morning.
As it is here every day,
And with it comes freedom,
I am...

Underdogs

We must champion the underdogs. 
We must support the poor and weak. 
We must all fight along the side of those 
Whose hope and luck seemed bleak.

We must not not give up nor give in, 
Till we defeat those who taunt and boast. 
For the underdogs - they are the ones 
Who need our help the most.

We must conquer all the giants. 
We must all be brave and strong. 
We must all stand up for ...

A Better World

We should all feel safe when in the street.
Wherever we may go and whoever we meet.
And if there's one thing that should be clear,
We should not go outside while we live in fear.

Yes, all the people have the right
To live in peace and without a fight.
And it is our right to go out somewhere
To feel secure and free of care.

And I do hope to have an expectation
That people shall have mo...

Lawyers - Victims or Villains

Why do lawyers often get such bad press?
It is because to every case they will always say yes.
For their clients they'll choose to take up the fight.
Regardless of whether they think that it's wrong or it's right.

Will they may make their speeches be harsh or to be funny?
Will they work off their bones if they just get the money?
They can prosecute or they can defend.
But will the truth m...

Differences

Every person is quite unique. 
They can be boisterous or they can be meek 
With different thoughts and different ideas. 
With different pleasures and different fears.

Different views and different perceptions. 
Different beliefs and misconceptions. 
Different dreams. Different ambitions. 
Different roles and different positions.

Some may be reclusive, some are outgoing. 
Some may be i...

Movies

Movies take us to a wonderful place, 
One which may be slow or very fast paced. 
They can make us smile and can make us laugh. 
They can be set in the future or set in the past.

There are action adventures with lots of fighting, 
Which can be gripping and very exciting. 
Or do you prefer ones of love and romance? 
Or ones that are full of music and dance?

And then there are those who l...

Is there a God?

If there is a God, what does He do?
Does he watch over me and you?
We may all hope that the answer's yes,
But all we can do is make a guess.

Has He the power to control our life?
And decide whether it shall be one of joy or strife.
Is He good and is He just?
And is Jesus one in which we can trust?

Or is it the case that we're alone
That we wander this Earth all on our own.
That we mu...

Masks We Wear

Do we wear a mask or a facade?

Do we disguise who we really are?

Do we laugh or joke or wear a smile?

Though inside we suffer all that while?

 

Should we say that we are always fine?

Or tell what is really on our mind?

Are we afraid of being judged?

Or that we shall be misunderstood?

 

Should we keep our troubles to ourselves?

And have no one around to offer help?

Our Countryside

This our countryside we must revere.

What would we do if it was not here?

It should all be loved and all be preserved,

To show to everyone it is deserved.

 

There is no more lovely pleasant scene

Than hills and vales - all covered green.

View the flowers and trees - don't take for granted

All of the things that have been planted.

 

And if there's something that should...

A New Year

Welcome in this fine new year,
For it has only just arrived.
In spite of worries you faced before
You came through it and survived.

So make it one of hope and joy
And find new ideas and new ambitions.
And know that you shall always cope,
And make successes be your mission.

Let it not be a year of despair 
But one of joy for everyone.
And should you find life a bore,
Turn it into one...
