April 23rd – Time for Change

These are trying times ---

Unprecedented, they say

Yet, I hear familiar lines

And see the drama unfold

Before my eyes

At the darkest of times

Heroes emerge, their light a bright beacon

Guiding through

Uncharted journeys

Their example a shining

Template upon which to mold ourselves

Together for good

It is true, therefore, that our power

Lies in those spotlights of hope

And compassion

Of love and unselfishness

We must look inward ---

It is time for change.

Time For Change

It’s time for change.

Children cry for a scrap of food

We need to turn the page

And improve the mood.

It’s time for change.

Humans killing one another

We need to turn the page

And hug each like a brother.

It’s time for change.

We’re killing our only planet

We need to turn the page

And stop littering – just can it!

It’s time for change.

It’s not too late

We need to turn the page

And alter our fate.

It’s time for change.

Hunger, death, hate, and disease

We need to turn the page

We can fix it, you’ll see.

Lil white cuckoo in the clock

Stuck on pause, your tick won’t tock

Years of dust on top and down

A tired façade, dull grey brown

Are you done? Should I act?

Hide the need to set time back?

A peek inside your leafy nest

Shines with cogs and chains at rest

A broken bellow sits askew

Otherwise, your heart looks new

My thoughts take charge, ‘pack and store’

A voice rings out, Think, there’s more

A relic born in German lands

Hung with care by Grandpa’s hands

Passed on down for memory’s sake

A family bond that must not break

A ‘spit and shine’, they used to say

Revived the history of my name

Time for Change

Yes we have time these days

Ample time

To go inward

To reconnect

To sit with discomfort

To meditate and daze

We have all the days

To gaze over the past

To be amazed at what

We can do today

Pick up the paint

Pick up the mat

Pick up the seeds

Days get tangled

I get confused

What day is today

Is it time for change yet?
