The Answer

I see the faces daily,
Of my fellow human beings,
Some showing frustration,
Sometimes betrayal,
As the system that is,
Supposed to guide them,
Seems on the verge of collapsing,
And no one seems to know the answer,
To the growing malaise,
Slowly taking over,
Businesses collapsing,
Companies going under,
Unemployment line growing longer,
Jobs decreasing,
Crime increasing,
It’s the signs of the time they say,
It’s bad management they say,
Whatever it is,
No one seems to know the answer.

Another world

I saw her standing by the corner,
Like she did everyday,
A lonesome figure,
Seemingly frozen in the spot,
Her face wearing the same crooked,
Twisted smile.
She never moved, never spoke,
But today I was in for a big surprise,
As the figure slowly came to life,
She broke into a run,
And an eerie sound,
Which was in fact her laughter,
filled the air,
I watched her hurry up the street,
Lost in a world completely her own,
Doing things that to her was the norm,
Not a care for the stares,
directed her way,
In her world of insanity,
She was completely at home.

The Seed

I planted a seed of faith,
I molded it up with hope,
I showered it with love,
Then waited for it to grow,
It grew for a while,
But then it got scorched up by the sun,
I watered it with my tears,
Refusing to let it die,
I held on to my faith’,
I continued to hope,
It struggled for awhile,
Then slowly began to grow,
And then one morning,
I looked outside my bedroom window,
To find that it had bloomed,
And I felt a burst of joy,
As my eyes behold,
The most beautiful of flowers,
That I had ever seen.

You Have To Try

There is no mountain too high,
That you can climb if you try,
There is no valley too wide,
That you can not cross if you try,
There is no obstacle too great,
That you can’t roll away,
No problem too big,
That you cannot solve,
For life is full of ups and downs,
And if you want to succeed,
You have to try.
