Now!

Dream a little dream
Have a goal or even two
Consider aims along the way
Hold aspirations true

But always keep your feet firm
In the present to enjoy
The now as it unfolds each day
No distraction or decoy

For its now, this very minute
Where certainty is sure
The freshest memory in your mind
That will pave the way to more

So plan, yes do, whole-heartedly
And look ahead with glee
And don’t forget to love your ‘now’
For it too is your “me”

Thinking Outside The Box

We’re told to think outside the box
And yet it’s very true
That what a box contains and holds
Can be exciting too
Particularly when the said box
Is precious to behold
The box that makes you who you are
Your inner heart of gold
And then to think what is inside
Brings joy and happiness
For sometimes it’s what we have now
That makes us feel most blessed

And so whilst looking past the box
Portends ambitiously
Remember and uphold the best
Of all you presently
Have up to now; the person who
You are – the ‘stuff’ within
The secrets you already have
Unmasked – the best you’ve been
And that will give you courage to
Stride out across the miles
Discovering life way past your box
With confidence and smiles

Dreams Fulfilled

In life there are so many things
That stand right in our way
A million blocks that circumvent
Our dreams; our hopes delay

But with a will of fortitude
Of strength and true resolve
Let’s creatively determine
To not let them dissolve

Nor diffuse them in the ether
To vanish out of sight
But courageously take up cups
And mantles with full might

Let’s work out pathways through the mist
Dispelling clouds for sun
To shine; illuminate the way
So inspiration runs

And then we’ll live lives; dreams fulfilled
With difference to impart
That touch, caress and so uplift
The contents of our heart

Options

The options that you make in life
Should always be your own
Not orchestrated by the crowd
But stand up strong alone

To be the choices you would make
Not those of other folk
Who might impart their own imprint
Your destiny then choke

For choices seem so rife these days
From what to do or wear
From where to go, and what to take
Just so many out there

So don’t pay homage to the mob
Or bow to their demands
Nor to their expectations cede
Nor despotic commands

But shout out your aspirations
Alight your focus fire
For options that you make will then
Bring joy, enthuse, inspire

Reality Lives

What happened to our private lives?
That stayed behind the door
The lives that lived out day to day
Where washing wasn’t for
Displaying on the laundry line
For one and all to see
What happened to those private lives?
The things of privacy

For now it seems our lives are all
Out in the public eye
Lived out upon the big display
Where there is no standby
Switch on the box and there we are
Or there we’d like to be
Those beings that we have become
Reality TV!

From Oprah to a man named Kyle
Addictions to such things
Just suck us in to then subscribe
To others’ suffering
Or in the name of X Factor
We look to find a star
But through all this we can forget
Just what and who we are

For safe to say you can become
Just who you want to be
But it is done through quiet resolve
Not plastered on TV
Nor any other media
Who offer you quick fame
But by quiet steady devotion
To play life’s living game

So don’t be fooled to think that you
Will make it to the top
By surrendering your privacy
With novelty hip hop!
But set about to plan a path
On which you want to go
Then persevere and dedicate
Your will to make it so!
