Control

Control!  That thing that makes us feel
Empowered and then in charge
That lets us feel so safe; secure
To then steer lifespan’s barge

The essence of a well-planned path
The way we want to go
The rhythm and the rhyme we think
That keeps us in the flow

The means to level saliencies
To keep all in a line
In tow with how we’d like our life
To wander and be fine

But likewise it can easily
Destroy! Manipulate
Usurp relationships and cause
Disruption and much hate

For overbear and hold the reins
On other’s destiny
And there will be a price to pay
That control can’t oversee

The negative of what is right
The windward side of slope
The scree of broken lives that are
Devoid of love and hope

The fear of what might thus prevail
When flexibility
Replaces rigid, firmer soil
With freedom’s territory

So be the master of your soul
The author of your mind
And have the courage to let each
Do as they are inclined

In Control

We wake – we take – we choose – we die
We live – we breathe – we might comply
But won’t succumb to other things
That hold our life in ransomed strings
Save have a creed that’s fair and free
A life that’s based on liberty
To make the choices we would make
To take from life what we would take
And out of that we’ll contribute
To all around; to walk in boot
Of those who need a helping hand
To live our life in our command
To be the one that owns our goal
For from that base we’ll have control

Destiny

If you play the same old record
Then you’ll hear the same old song
If you still act out the same script
The same lines will still be wrong

If you hate your own reflection
Change the person who you see
If you’re unhappy with your life
Then transform who you will be

If you dislike the path you’re roaming
Then switch to a different way
If you don’t like the way your life is
Then be brave and change today

And know that for the most part
You make your own sweet harmony
So tweak your life; pick up the reigns
And drive your own destiny
