Shall we sell our birthright?

I am worried about our birthright;
What’s happened to some of our people’s reasoning faculty?
One is still to understand;
Have they lost their minds?
Where is their thinking cap?
I can’t believe what I see;
Listen to the way they talk;
It is hard to say
How exactly they see things;
Where they want to take us;
Where they are steering our boat;
Are they out to sail our ship on safe
Or stormy waters?
Aren’t they heading our vessel to
A hard rock?
I can bet
They are planting a time bomb;
Though many are blind;
Before they know it,
The ship will be
At the bottom of the sea;
We must be careful
Where we are heading to;
Let’s not hit our head
On a mighty rock,
In the name of finding
our way
To the other side
Of the mountain.
Unfortunately, it seems a fate
Hard to escape.
Shall we really sell our birth right?
I would rather be a lion
And live for one day,
Than a vassal and live
for a hundred years.

Have a sense of direction

If I put my ship on the sea,
Without an idea
Of where I want to go,
What would you think of me?
And what do you think
Is most likely To happen to me?

If I go to board a plane
Without an idea
Of where I want to go,
What would you think of me?
And what do you think
Is most likely to happen to me?

If you find me tilling a farm,
Without an idea
Of what I want to plant there,
What would you think of me?
And what do you think
Will likely happen to the farm?

If I set out for University,
Without an idea
Of the course to follow there,
What would you think of me?
And what do you think
Will most likely happen to me?

In this world,
We must have a sense of direction:
Know where we are going,
Why we are going there,
And how we will get there;
This intentional living
Leads to success.

Let’s save our boat

Our ship is about
To sink;
Our plane is about
To crash land;
What do we do my sweetest?
Allow it to sink?
Or let our plane crash?
How can we do that?
Let us fight for out ship;
It’s our thing;
We owe it to us
To fight for our ship
To stay afloat;
To fight for our plane,
To land safely.
That is my appeal to you
My sweetest;
Let us not watch it sink;
Or help it sink;
Let us save it;
It is our ship.
