FAITH IS THE BEST WAY OF LIFE
Faith brightnes our lives
in a magical way
bringing quiet and peace
to a troubled day.
faith is believing
that after the rain
birds will be singing
in sunshine again
faith lets us know
that the darkness of night
is followed each morning
by dawn's glowing light
so if you should feel
that you're troubled by strife
remember that faith
is the best way of life
i asked for God for strenght, that i might achieve
i was made weak, that i might learn humbly to obey....
i asked for help, that i might do greater things,
i was given infirmity, that i might do better things...
i asked for riches, that i might be happy,
i was given poverty that might be wise...
i asked for power, that i might have the praise of men,
i was given weakness, that i might feel the need of god...
i asked for all things, that i might enjoy life,
i was given life that i might enjoy all things...
i got nothing that i asked for...
but everything i hoped for
almost despite myself, my unspoken prayer were answered
i am among all men, most richly blessed!
i'm glad im me
no one looks
the way i do.
i have noticed
that it's true;
no one walks
the way i walk
no one talks
the way i talk
no one plays
the way i play
no one says
the things i say
i am special
i am me
there's no one
i'd rather be than me!
my joyful heart can't find enough words
to express how nice it would be
to exist, to live, to face challenges
to feel the breezes of the wind that had come from nowhere
but now.. how long can i stand
to bear the pain, the ache, the sorrow?
how long can i hold my tears not to fall?
i cannot find the answer amidst the misty clouds
and soon the darkness will cover the earth
the moon and stars will surely shine
but uncertainty will still be there
to block my mind, to doubt my existence.
blind unbelief is sure to err,
and scan his work in vain;
god is his own interpreter,
and he will make it plain
give the world the best you have
there are loyal hearts,
there are spirits brave
there are souls that are pure and true
then give to the world that best you have,
and the best shall come back to you.
give love, and love to your heart will flow
a strenght in your utmost need,
have faith and a score of hearts will show
their faith in your word and deed
for life is the mirror of king and slave
its just what you are and do
then give to the world the best you have
and the best will come back to you
live life to the fullest
if you treasure the beauty
that shows all around you
and try to add some of your own
enjoy the companionship
others can give you
yet value your moments alone;
if you honor opinions
that differ from yours
yet stand up for what you beleive,
admire the accomplishments,
other have made and take pride
in what you can achieve;
if you're a real friend
who comes through when it counts
who always is worhty of trust,
if you follow your heart
anywhere it may lead you
and do what you feel that you must;
if you love those around you
and love yourself too;
if your spirit is eager and full
then you know what it means
to live life to the fullest
and be the best you can be.
when there's sunshine in your heart
the world is like a mirror
reflecting back to you
whatever you have given it,
whatever is your view....
so if your thoughts are happy
and a smile is on your face,
you'll find the world is beautiful,
a warm and happy place....
so always keep your spirits up
and hope for what is best,
look for the good in everyone,
and see what's happiest...
for when there's sunshine in your heart
and faith in all you do,
the world can't help returning
that sunny joy to you.
light shining out of darkness
god moves in a mysterious way
his wonders to perform
he plants his footsteps in the sea,
and rides upon the storm.
deep in unfathomable mines
of never-failing skill;
he treasures up his bright designs,
and works his sovereign will
ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
the clouds ye so much dread
are big with mercy, and shall break
in blessings on your head.
judge not the lord by feeble sense,
but trust him for his grace;
behind a frowning providence
he hides a smiling face.
his purpose will ripen fast,
unfolding every hours;
the budy may have a bitter taste,
but sweet will be the flower
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Take this vitamin verse everyday.

Loneliness has taken over, and I'm out of control
finding myself spiraling downward, it's taking a toll
unbearably stressed out, and looking for an escape
hoping to avoid despair, that upon me it not retake
What happens every day, heavily upon my heart does it weigh
watching people live their lives, but with minds in such disarray
this only serves to confirm my fear, I really live in my own world
surrounded by loneliness, worries around me have now encircled
Unrelenting internal struggles, like strong waves slamming the shore
coping with these new challenges, and my sadness hoping to ignore
creatively developing strategies, thinking confusion of mind to negate
but words of loneliness burdening my heart, was what I had to relate
Searching my mental landscape, seeking to find some emotional rest
even if only a temporary escape, this world makes me feel oppressed
alone to ponder these troubles, sadly, they are all I have to my name
forced to keep this secret, their revelation would only bring me shame
Life will go on without you, forever left with your own world to deal
your dreams are unlike all others, you wait for another heart to feel
hoping to fill your emptiness, just by knowing someone else cared
enabling you to find peace of mind, and never again to be scared
Don't fall into despair, you're not alone being trapped in loneliness
sadness may lead to sin, but right now your pain borders holiness
hold on just a little longer, new days bring new light, try and cope
G-d is coming to your rescue, because in him you never lost hope
You're a prisoner for life, try and plan your escape, free to contrive
but remember the reality, no one ever gets out of this world alive
confusion does not last a lifetime, only our sadness blinds the wayIn the end we'll find the happiness we seek, and forever will it stay
All Things Bright and Beautiful
~Cecil Frances Alexander
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;
The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
-----No guts, No glory, No ID, No entry
-----Birds of the same feather, makes a good feather duster
-----An apple a day is seven apples a week
-----Where you are... you are there
------How can you face your problem if your problem is your face?
------What is beauty, if the brain is empty?
-------What is knowledge, if the face is damage?
------If you cannot beat them, shoot them
-----Don’t be humble. You’re not that great.
----- If you’re too open-minded, your brains will fall out.
-----The grass may be greener on the other side but at least you don’t have to mow it
----You sound better with your mouth closed.
----Expect nothing and you'll never be disappointed!
Admidt the dense trees
Aside the clear water
Above the damp earth
Aside the flying birds
I wish I could fly away from this rush and hush of city life into the lap of nature
Along the seashores
Among the swimming fishes
Aboard the eternly heavens
I wish I could vanish away into the depths of serenity away from this city life and into the lap of nature
Don't look a bit run-down,
Life has its ups and downs.
World is full of good and bad,
All are not foe, don't go mad.
Let's face the facts,
Things are not all cracked.
Let's clean up our acts,
Don't stick to the facts.
Hey my dear! Don't be woeful,
With grief, life is meaningful.
In weeping we take refuge, tops,
Flowers freshened with dew drops.
Life is a tale of woe,
Don't feel deep sorrow,
Life has its own shadow,
Don't make it taboo.
Too many are alone like you,
The many suffer wounds of time as you,
Don't feel deep sorrow,
Don't kick up a row.
Heaven is for us tomorrow,
See God, don't you know?
Leave the world up to God,
Pray for world side by side.
