The world is round

Round, round goes the world;
The things we hate today,
May be our favourite tomorrow;
And what we love today,
We may hate tomorrow;
Today’s little Kids,
Tomorrow’s adults;
Children today,
Parents tomorrow;
Today we start
Tomorrow we end;
Nothing stands on the spot;
Everything on the move;
Going forward,
Going upward,
Going downwards;
When the sun rises
Early in the morning,
We know in the evening
It will set.
When young, you’re energetic;
Remember old age will come;
With it will go all energy;
The tides rise,
And the tides fall;
In a circle life goes.
That is why we say
The world is round.
Round, round goes the world.

Where are we headed to?

Who is wondering like me?
Where are we headed to?
What is the destiny of humanity?
I find a lot of things worrisome in this world;
And wonder why we can’t do something about them;
Can’t we ward off
The impending disaster?
It’s right at our threshold;
And do you know why?
We are moving in the wrong direction;
We have failed to pay heed
To what our Creator requires of us.
Haven’t we been comnanded to love one another?
And be each other’s keeper?
But what do we do?
We hate one another;
And want one another sitting in mud;
If we loved one another,
We wouldn’t be cheating others,
There wouldn’t be injustice;
We wouldn’t be quarrelling;
We wouldn’t be fighting;
We wouldn’t be killing one another;
Where we are now,
We are heading to disaster;
Trouble never before seen;
We may destroy this most precious possession:
The world.
Which means we will destroy one another;
Is that fair?
It’s quite stupid of us;
And the work of greed.
No! we must save the world.
We cannot destroy ourselves

We are one world

Whether we have black skin
Or white or red skin,
We belong to one world,
We are one people,
The people of the world,
The people of God,
Created by the same God.

Whether we speak English
Chinese, French, German
Or some other language
widely known or unknown,
We belong to one world,
We are one people,
The people of the world;
The people of God;
Created by the same God.

Whether we swim in luxury
Or we wallow in poverty,
We belong to one world
We are one people,
The people of the world,
The people of God;
Created by the same God.

Whether we like other people
Or we hate other people,
We belong to one world,
We are one people;
The people of the world;
The people of God,
Created by the same God.

What a peaceful world
We would have!

What a holy world
We would have!

What a greedy world
We would have!

If we were all fighters,
What a fghting world
We would have!

What a friendly world
We would have!

Where our problem lies

Where does our problem lie?
Where does the devil dwell?
Are Christians in a trance?
The world is being torn to pieces;
Under our watchful eyes;
Or are we saying we do not see?
Who does not see the fire
That hell is spitting out
On the world?
Who is not aware
Of the blazing flames?
The world is rife with produce
From the devil’s farm;
Aren’t our leaders worse today
Than the tyrants of old?
Human slaughter houses
Have geometrically multiplied;
Humans are massacred like cattle
Or buried alive;
Neighbours at war,
Fighting and killing,
And dumping neighbours in pits
Dug behind their homes;
Who talks?
Don’t we hear
And see these atrocities?
Can we pretend not to see?
Aren’t we authoring them?
Where is the Devil’s dwelling place?
Our hearts.
Who feeds and nurtures him?
Hypocrisy is devouring
The world.
Shall we stop him?
Or shall we let him go on
Till our human race is wiped off?
We preach virtue
And practice vice.
That’s where the problem lies.
Can’t we stick to the right,
And shun the wrong?
That is our challenge;
To cast pride and greed
Into a bottomless pit;
To keep falling
Never to walk the earth again.

Our world

The world is moving
In revrerse;
In the opposite direction;
It is not moving right;
It is moving to the left;
It is not moving forward;
It is moving backwards;
The sun is not shining
On the earth;
The rain is pouring
The earth is deprived of light;
Plunged into darkness;
One can understand.
Where have we kept God;
We worship money,
We worship property;
We worship power
All agents of the evil one;
More than God;
Why would the world not be
The way it is?
Why would it not be
Going down the drain?
Indeed, unless we take
An about turn,
Who can guess
Where we are headed.
Disaster looms over us
For our planet;
Let us act while it is
Not too late.

Prayer for the suffering people of the world

Almighty God and father,
All over the world,
Many of your children are suffering;
And are helpless;
They do not have the means
Or the knowhow to help themselves,
Dear God, do something for them;
The people of Australia;
The people of other disaster zones;
Those in war torn zones;
Who are either fighting
And killing themselves,
Or dying of other causes,
Many are on the run;
People are perishing
From hunger,
And lack of medical care;
Almighty God,
Everything is under your control;
You have the means
To solve all the problems
Of the world;
You can stop suffering;
You can stop wars,
And the killings going on;
You can make peace
And happiness prevail
In the world,
Please, God, do it for us.

Life After death

Don’t be the greatest fool ever;
The greatest fool
Who ever lived;
And anyone who lives
Ohnly for now
And cares less about eternity;
How foolish is such a one!
To say there is no eternity
Because you don’t understand
Is foolishness of the top rank;
Who knew there was
A world like ours
Before they came to live here?
You found yourself here;
And you will find yourself leaving at a time you least expected;
Or desired;
My friend,
Be wise and accept
What millions have believed
Down the centuries:
That there is life after death;
Maybe you died in one world
Before you were born
Into this world;
What stops you
From being born
Into another world
When you die and leave
This world?
There’s life after life.
Or should I say
I believe in life after death?

Let’s build an excellent world

We can remake the world;
We can transform the world
Into an excellent place
For all to enjoy;
Yes, we can,
If we give priority
To kindness;
There’s something amazing
About kindness;
People with kind hearts
Are the ones the world needs;
They are the ones
Making the world
What God conceived it to be;
God conceived the world to be
An excellent place
For all to enjoy;
We are the ones who allowed vaulting ambition,
Greed and pride
To destroy it;
Can we stop destroying
Our own world?
Can we stop hurting one another?
Can we stop destroying
One another?
And make this world
What God conceived it to be?
Yes, we can;
And that is what we should do.
