The Sands of Time

The sands of time like deserts wide,

keep moving on ~ no rewind.

Spread across eternity ~

the future holds uncertainty

Embrace your NOW that’s all there is,

refuse it though and cease to live.

Stop holding back your destiny ~

grab hold this day and be set free.

Live with heart ~ embrace your core,

one small step then reach for more.

Our thoughts create our destiny ~

trust and Believe ~ Then you Will see.

It takes some faith and patience too

but then rewards will come to you.

Faith is not something you see ~

Believe it First so it can Be.

The eyes can see the shallow plains

but with the heart see what remains.

This life we know is just a blink ~

it’s not as serious as you may think.

Live each day like it’s your last ~

it’s what’s here Now ~ don’t look back.

Seeds of Peace


In this day/ in this age/ most people suffer some sort of rage/
There’s a movement amongst us/ it’s called Peace of mind/
it’s a natural state that we can All find/
Have a little compassion for all life that you see/
every person/ every creature/every plant/every tree.
All of life is sacred/ nothing is exempt,
an open mind and open heart is where this Peace is kept/
Could you just imagine if everyone took part/
in living life vicariously from the love within their hearts!?/
For those of you who haven’t felt just what i’m talkin’ ‘bout/
it’s a state of mind we All can have that ya just can’t live without/
It’s why we’re here /each one of us/ the purpose of our soul,
to accept All life and know we’re One it’s the fastest way to grow/
We all come from the same place/ Soul connection/ human race/
we must Unite the time is near/ our highest calling/to lose all fear/
Love yourself and Accept you too/ our earthly mission Be true to You/
Such simple truth if you believe/ have some Faith and you’ll receive/
Love is all there really is/ yet fear takes over / we cease to Live
Trust your instinct or Higher Power/ you’ll find your Peace/ the earth will flower/
with seeds of Peace they’ll grow and spread/ you’ll lose the demons in your head/
That really Is possible/ it’s been IN us All/ all along.
Dig real deep/ you’ll see it’s there/ gotta get beyond that surface layer/
Peel through all the pain and hurt/ see the raw beauty of who you are/
Child of God through the human veil/ this body but a host to your eternal Being/
