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 we 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.



A Helping Perspective

There’s a strong yearn of my heart,
That overrides the rest:
To use my full potential,
To perform my very best.

Not that I be glorified,
By my fellow men,
But to help them raise this earth,
That all might prosper, then.

Each one has their role to play,
It doesn’t help comparing.
Our contributions are unique,
Not for competition, but for sharing.

We also have our weaknesses.
But there’s no need for shame.
We’re here to learn and overcome
So help each other, instead of blame.

Our job is not to try’n change others,
But to be of help to all,
To live, let live, and understand,
That God will answer every call.


Thoughts On High

I love to do Thy Will, O God,
To do Thy Holy Will,
In gratitude for all I have,
And all I’m getting, still.

Thy mercy, grace and blessings,
Pour out to me each day.
Because I don’t receive them all,
Just means I’ve gone astray.

The way I know to realign,
With Thy dear Will, so fair,
Is through obedience, service,
Forgiveness and through prayer.

Forgiveness is not letting
Others win the day
It’s winning by not letting,
Bad thoughts get in our way.

It transmutes past distractions,
So we may clearly see,
The goal ahead, to then blaze forth;
The victory to be.
