Thunder and Rain

I've got thunder, I've got rain
I've got two 'lil angels which aren't quite the same
One seems loud and fierce
The other seems mild and serene
But both are not as they seem, if we just look deep within
Thunder may be loud and scary
But can't do much more than a boo
Rain though calm at times
Can be brisk and harsh, can destroy all in it's path
Easy to see how both appear one way
But can change depending on the day
Deep within our heart plays an unspoken tune
Our mind isn't what people tend to presume
My thunder and my rain

My reality of this world's fame
My understanding I can now claim
How beautiful they compliment each other
Thunder and rain!

Brighter Tomorrow

Gotta go through each day one at a time

Gotta try, try and try......gotta try all the time

Smiling can be so easy 'cos frowning just doesn't seem right

Keep on pushing further remembering each day to fight

Gotta fight, fight and fight.....gotta fight to reach your greatest height

Make each day your first, and each day your last

Step with one foot forward, and the other not too far back

Baby steps lead into leaps, making marks in lives for keeps

Gotta try, try and try...gotta try all the time

Gotta fight, fight and fight...gotta fight to reach you greatest height

Stern and steady, strong and stable

Keep on pushing and your soul will follow

This is living

This is a brighter tomorrow.........

Today's Tomorrow

O' bitter world might I be a stranger within thee
O' blessed earth may I live an ascetic life
O' grieving heart might I die with one mission
O' harsh world might I turn my back to your ways
O' fruitful earth might I only take from you what I need
O' heavy heart might you find peace in the remembrance of God

Yearning a way of life beyond the norm of society
Yearning for a higher purpose beyond that of our materialistic imagination
Yearning to be traveller on route to everlasting bliss
Yearning to sacrifice worldly goods to benefit a higher purpose

May I live as though my last breathe will take me, live with honour, live with a consciousness of good against the ways of the evil lurking around us. The evil ways disguised by success, disguised with the speech "the smart thing to do" ....ways far beyond our source of peace.

O Lord of the heavens and earth and all that in between, O Lord of Mercy, O Lord of the Day of Judgement, Giver of Peace, Giver of Success. The Mighty, The Wise, The Knower of all things unseen....Ya Rabb hear the cries of our heart, hear our prayers, let us be submerged in truth....O King of Kings, grants us true success in this world and the hereafter...Ameen.

The Light of Respect

These garments of choice have made me free

They keep me flying they keep me standing with dignity

My soul is complete, strong and unique

Maybe against the roaring currents you see me as weak

Take a moment to see me as a being

A vital part of the community – see me as I am seeing

I will not wrong you by judging you

Do me the honor and give me the same courtesy

My light and my guidance

Is not only outer but an inner radiance

It is not merely a clothe or a cover

But a symbol for respect towards myself and each other

I believe this is the truest form of beauty

My right to love and preserve my body and soul with dignity

Do It Anyway! - Author Unknown

People are often unreasonable,
illogical, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may
accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway.

Within proof lies victory
With victory lies truth
Within truth lies our existence
And within our existence there lies the proof

Our life is an obstacle course designed to prove ourselves worthy of the fate promised to us by The Greatest, Most High, King of Kings, Lord of the heavens and earth and everything between it!
