Writings on the Wall
A collection of short things. Hopefully they impact and enlighten.|
The more time you spend
Reading the writing on the wall,
The better you understand
What the world is trying to say.
In search of a better tomorrow?
Look around you today.
Government is so much shouting
'Listen to me, I'm right!'
That no one hears the kind voice saying
'How can I help?'
A mind that remains closed too long
Is both a self-imposed prison and
A tomb too soon interred.
The only creature that can't dance to the rhythm of life
We are too deaf from marching to a different drum
And tooting our own horns.
Grasping at straws only gives a handful of hay,
Reaching out for a helping hand gives a way out of pain.
How much of life is spent in pursuit of more,
As opposed to knowing just what you have?
