  • We all get lost
    We all get lostChasing dreams, We all got lost, And rarely we, know the cost, at all, Not even in our dreams, Where things are better than it seems, Let me take you, but my the hand, Show you what, I have all planned, today, There’s nothing in our way, My heart has more to say, I’d walk a million miles for you, Make sure you were never blue, at all, I’d catch you if you’d fall, Don’t ever dream too small, You have all the things that you need, If only you now plant the seed, and grow, For you will find your eb
  • One step closer
    One step closerAround every corner, opportunity hides, Like the ebbing and flowing, of an oceans tides, No step forward is easy, no journey is small, But your one step away, from achieving it all, Whatever your journey, what ever you think, You know that this life, can be gone in a blink, So treasure your days, remember to say, Those that are close, you love them always, Go for your dreams, you have nothing to lose, And the experience will help, your next step to choose, Just keep moving forwards, one step at
  • Smoke and mirrors
    Smoke and mirrorsMaybe the truth, is what we now know, And this isn’t really, some jolly big show, But the actors we have, who perform on stage, Have lied so much, now there’s plenty of rage!

They all lie and cheat, in W
  • Liberty and life
    Liberty and lifeWe need to pause, every now and then, Stop the hectic life, have a bit of zen, It’s part of our life, or at least the way it is, We barely have time, to understand this quiz, We charge around, from place to place, Like a shooting star, lost in space, No rhyme or reason, for this hectic routine, Just a little cog, in this big machine, But when we stop, and take time to view, We understand, that it is not just you, But every human, controlled to race, Against the enemy, of time we face, Bills to p
  • Smile through darkness
    Smile through darknessNo matter the trials, and tribulations we face, Take a deep breath, and remember your place, No matter what comes, along into your path, One day you’ll look back, and most probably laugh, What seems so surreal, is all part of your story, As one human being, I believe it’s mandatory, A million to one, were the odds on us making, This journey called life, in which we are partaking, For the darkness we face, try to take in your stride, Buckle up for now, it’s all part of the ride, One day all the d
