Give Me the Wind.

I am at my best with the wind in my face,
When overcoming the challenge, with pace.
The pace that requires more effort, more strength.
But once gained momentum, endures with great length.

It’s easy to sit back, placid and calm
Comfort is only a relative balm.
It seems an advantage, better than strife
But is dulled by stagnation, stifling life.

Progress needs movement, energy, drive,
No chance for improvement if you do not strive.
Nothing’s for nothing: cause and effect.
That which you work for, you’ve more chance to get.

So give me the wind, let it blow in my face,
The more I confront, the more strength I’ll embrace.
Steps are not mounted, nor challenge o’ercome.
Without certain courage or effort be done.


Why not?
Give yourself a moment’s rest.
Smiling helps us be our best.
Not allowing outside things,
To get us down, or clip our wings.
For we are children of the One,
So don’t deprive yourself true fun
For in it’s spirit we can be
Victors for eternity.

The Ways I Like You.

I like the way I feel when I
Am in your company.
I like your joyful quiet smile
That lets me talk more easily.

I like your understanding look
The kindness in your eyes
Your sense of happiness and care,
That calms my butterflies.

I trust you recognise the Good,
Of which you’re really made.
And give thanks for the blessings,
Which flow through you each day.
