Peace We SeekWhat would happen if we slowed down?
Stop trying to make the grade,
Watch the world go around,
And witness the mess we've made.
If we stopped to really hear the crowd
As they talk about their busy lives.
But we never stop because we're proud
Always going on to what next arrives.
We say we're taking a break
So we can step back and clear our mind.
But we don't like to admit a mistake.
We would rather go through life blind.
We worry about grades, money, and the next day
Never remembering time is what we borrow
But we love too much the pain and disarray.
When will we appreciate the time given to tomorrow?
So used to the noise of the world
We panic when we hear the past returning,
Wondering what next disaster will unfurl,
Instead of from the past learning.
Ignoring the problem doesn't make it disappear,
But dwelling and not doing is bleak.
There's a happy medium if we persevere
And that's where we find the peace we seek.
Sunshine DiedWhen sunshine fades
By winter's trials
Just left are shades
Of previous smiles
Empty feels the broken heart
After hushed rejection
Happy falls apart
And woes resurrected
Pain follows inward thought
Of trying to resign
Others in a gleeful lot
With own lengthy decline
Alone as always
No hope for change there
Same sad days
A friendly embrace
A caring word
Giving God's grace
When sight is blurred
Still the yearning
For heart repair
Life is unfair
But others can see
Writhing pain inside
And offer prayers for me
They see the sunshine died
Keep in Touch!
