The world does not change even if God blinks
The world changes because someone thinks.
Generations can only grow
When thinkers don't let their thoughts go,
When thinkers let other people know
Whether they are friend or they are foe.
Human beings in their prime
Upon this world for a brief time,
But an idea, a thought may last
Into the future from distant past,
Each builds upon an earlier
Thought that is succinct and clear;
Temporal things vanish, disappear
Thoughts are eternal, deathless, dear.
To leave your mark upon this land
For an original thought take a stand,
When your hour glass runs out of sand
Your thought, your idea, your eternal hand.

Logic and Inspiration

Pure logic is so tragic,
Inspiration is like magic.
Ask logic why two times two is four
It will say because it knew before
That four is always twice two
T'is a fact, real and true.
Logic is a puppy chasing its tail
Round in circles, to no avail;
Momentum, logic's driving force,
Illogical any new course;
It keeps going because it's going,
What started it, takes some knowing.
This is where inspiration comes in,
Creative, knowing, a force from within.
Playful puppy finding a bone
Its own tail, leaving alone.
Expansive, setting the mind free
To claim one and one makes three,
With good reason and higher logic;
Inspiration is like magic.

Raindrops against my window crashing
The waters were thus splashing;
Many inspirations, humble and huge
Came upon me in a deluge;
As soon as I came to write them down
They crashed and splashed and then were gone.

Dare to be true, dare to do right
For the sake of truth, love and light;
Pursue your quest, instead of fight
Pursuit of light will bring you might.

Dare to be true, dare to do right
In spite of others' venomous bite;
Keep loving truth always in sight
And to your world, you'll bring light.

Dare to be true, dare to do right
Devouring itself is evil's plight.
Embrace the sun, falls away the night
Depth is meaningless in attaining height.

Dare to be true, dare to do right
It’s as clear as black and white
When you steer your course towards light
Unseen hands support you in flight.

When the air is clear
        And my mind is free
When I feel no fear
        And my eyes clearly see
Everything sincere
Vibrant appear
        Waves and rocks with glee
        Reflecting myself to me.
I smile with cheer
As though God is near
        I stand grounded like a tree
        And thank God that I can be.
