Find your own path

Capital Loss
Some people say
That in Great Britain
The road that
Leads to rack and ruin
Is strewn
With those
Who missed
The turning
For London

Healthy and Wealthy

Healthy is what you get
From eating fresh fruit and vegetables
Pasta, rice and
Plain potatoes
Don’t spoon the sugar
Cut out the fat
Not too much caffeine
Not too much salt.

Wealthy is what you get
From eating
Everyone else’s

Thanks, I’m happy

Thank-you is a thing of the past
Instead you must look
To the next on the list
This is the pointless
Pursuit of

Live in the moment, live every second...

Scene from a posh Party

- How do you do?

- It’s something innate
A will to carry on
No matter what
Through thick and thin
Rain or shine
Famine or feast
Good times and bad

- What do you do?

- I inhale and exhale
I walk and I talk
I eat and I drink
Sleep and think
And then I excrete
It makes life complete.

- Yes, yes but what do you do?
What’s your profession?

- Avoiding the day of my life’s cessation

Make time just to sit and listen to music

Soul Music

The rhythm of the world
Is not the rhythm of the soul
The rhythm of the world is bang a-bang a-bang!
The soul’s just likes to flow.

The music of the world
Is not the music of the soul
The music of the world is very, very fast
The soul says slow man, slow.

The sound of the world
Is not the sound of the soul
The sound of the world is loud man, loud
The soul is sweet and low.

The words of the world
Are not the words of the soul
The words of the world say go man, go!
The soul’s say whoa man, whoa.

BE HAPPY... Connect with your inner child

When I grow down

When I grow down
I want to be
More of a seedling
And less of a tree
Or at least
Find the seedling
Inside of me

(W)Hole in the Heart

Hole in the Heart

There’s a hole in my heart
And I know it needs filling
With the spirit of life
And the spirit is willing.

There’s a whole in our hearts
And it is overflowing
With the spirit of life
And the spirit is growing.
