Make a choice

If God were to turn you
Into a thing,
And asked you to choose
One of nine things:
Air, water, light, food,
Money, power, fame, stardom
Or a lasting name?
What would you like to be?

Tell the world
What you would do
With what
You would like to be?
Why on earth would you
Like to be what you would
Like to be?

What we need is justice

One thing our hearts need
Is justice;
Fill our hearts with justice
Oh Lord!
A sense of justice give us!
That the resources of the world,
We may justly share.
Everything for our good,
You’ve made;
And in abundance it is available;
That we may all enjoy;
And be satisfied; and be happy;
But how can we be, when justice
We do not know?
Injustice is everywhere;
The order of the day;
Others, we cheat with impunity;
The weak we deprive of what is theirs;
Make us know;
That what the world needs is justice.
Give us just hearts;
That the world may become
An enjoyable place for all.

Give yourself time

It takes time to grow;
It takes time to shine;
Give yourself time to grow;
No one makes it in a day.
The old saying remains true:
Rome was not built in a day;
The farmer must clear the farm,
Till the soil, plant the seeds
And weed and mulch.
All this takes time;
That the crops may grow and bear.
If you want to skip to the winning point,
You may end with broken legs.
Give yourself time to grow;
And put in the best of yourself
While you wait.

Roar with laughter

Make someone smile
If you can;
Make someone laugh
If you can;
Make someone even roar with laughter
If you can;
And why not roar with laughter
If you can;
That won’t hurt you,
Neither will it anyone;
It can only make life sweeter.

It takes hard work

What is your destination?
Work hard to get there.
If tomorrow you see me
At the top of the ladder,
Let that not surprise you;
That is why
I am working hard.
The top of the ladder
Is my destination;
And it takes hard work
To get there;
If I work hard enough,
Do so wisely enough,
And get the support I need,
I’ll get there.
Same goes for you;
If the top of the ladder
Your destination,
Work hard to get there.

What size is your mind?

People with big minds are fast
To recognize great ideas
Coming from others;
People with small minds
Are not.

People with big minds
Easily recognize the greatness
Of others;
People with small minds
See nothing
But smallness in others.

People with big minds
Support great causes
Wherever they find them;
People with small minds
Do not;
And prefer to see them die.

Where do you fall?
Do you have a big mind
Or a small mind?
Do you see greatness or smallness
In others?

Do you support great causes
To become even greater
Or you allow them to die?

Tell me your priority?

Tell me your priority
And I will tell you
What you will become;
Whether you will succeed
Or you will fail;
If you want to succeed in life,
Get your priorities right;
If you get your priorities right,
Your life will be right;
If you get your priorities wrong,
Your life will be wrong;
That is a thing you have to know.
What is your priority?
Tell me your priority,
And I will tell you
Whether you will succeed
Or you will fail.
