I Wonder

I wonder what would happen if we all stopped in our tracks, did absolutely nothing and took a few steps back.

Would we be satisfied with what we are seeing, would it soothe our restless souls or would it send you fleeing?

I wonder what would happen if we stopped living in our own dream and realized the problems around us that we ourselves are creating.

We have freedom of expression but the care it is not there, we are damning our own children and for them it is not fair.

Do we really have to wait to see the damage being done, before we open up our eyes and witness the demise of the Sun?

I wonder what would happen if the whole human race begun to care, because until that starts to happen nothing but death is in the air.

Do you want a tomorrow to be there, that choice is up to me and you, we were put on the Earth to tend and care, but look what we are putting it through.

We are killing off each other and those in power are trying to deceive,  

About how serious the danger everyone is in and in their decisions we have to believe

They say they know what is best for us, we should know that for ourselves

Or are we going to idly stand by, and watch the food be stripped from more shelves?

Cancer is growing common, the mentally ill are becoming sicker, the world is up to its neck in quicksand and it only seems to be getting thicker

I wonder what would happen if an awakening finally kicked in, would we be able to fix all that is wrong, before this world could meet its end?

That Feeling

Standard

Did you ever get that feeling? You know the one where you feel like you have finally figured out your purpose, you’re calm, happy, and believe that everything will be ok? Then suddenly things start to go wrong one by one your car won’t start, you lose a friend or family member, your job, & your life is churning out the perfect lyrics to a country song. You then have a choice to make, you can either become depressed and lose hope or you can be patient with yourself and realize that “this too shall pass” and carry on. See, how you take and react to what is happening around or to you is what defines you for others. You can either show them you are weak and easily come apart at the seams, or you can inspire them with your strength, joy, and faith even when nothing seems to be going right. That feeling will become a more permanent and infectious part of your life.

Just smile, it confuses people.
