The Path

There is a path we must follow –
A light, deep within our soul, to guide us

From afar something calls to our heart
To which we can choose to respond

We may stumble blindly over obstacles
That come our way and take a wrong turn

We make our own fate’s by heeding or ignoring
The feelings we harbor in our dreams tonight

The journey is fraught with challenges and
We must adjust our step to the terrain ahead

It’s a lifelong intuition that marks the way in this
Maze; but do we drown it in a logic of fear?

The lighthouse keeps emitting a signal –
A code of harmony only you can decipher

Take comfort in creating your own destiny,
In shaping your own direction through life

Believe in yourself; darkness cannot hide
What we know to be true


Arctic Blue

A light blanket of snow is falling –

Glitters white
Rays from the sun
Emblazoning clouds
Shivering pink

Naked earth gently wakes the day

Here the arctic blue
Lights up the sky
Waters freeze and
Melt with the flow

Winds sweep the twilight sparkle

Chance of Sunshine

She’s standing in the courtyard
Flowers in her hair
She rests an arm on the well
She smells like spring in the air

Walking along the cliffs at night
Thunder frightens me
The wind flings open the gates
I walk through the fog, I’m lost at sea

We carry children into this world
Believing our invisibility
We act in accordance to our needs
We never once question our reality

Running along life’s unheralded
Path to glory
The sunshine is clouded in grey
An uncommon end to this story


Born in the exhaust pipes of yesterday
The garbage and waste litters our way

Idolising power structures – weakness
Despised, beset by ignorance – flirting
With disaster, we are the exception to
The rule; a backwash of development

Self-destruction appeals to our psyche
Thrilling doom wets appetite for more

Swimming through the sewage, we are
Belligerent in our beliefs, undaunted by
Any truth words can form, free radicals;
Swarming masses that overwhelms all

Turn Around

Turn around and face the tears
You caused
Heartbreak and despair

You need to know how to improve
Apologise to yourself
Because you let yourself down

The implications of your actions
Are clear to see
Forgive yourself and move on

You can’t make undone what was
Just live with the truth and
Don’t pretend you done nothing wrong
