When we were young and life was fun,
We didn’t care, we had no clue.
What was there for us to learn,
In those days before we knew?
Soon we were warned about Big G.
Of mortal sin we lived in fear.
JC would save us from our woes.
The Holy Ghost may not appear.
Then came a man with sparkling eyes,
With silver tongue and many lies.
But you saw through his fake disguise,
And tales of how to live and die.
We searched for meaning of some kind.
Egoless with no false pride.
We left our worldly goods behind,
And travelled far and often wide.
We lazed on islands of the East,
And filled our lungs with pristine air.
We gorged ourselves on nature’s feast,
And other stuff we should not dare.
When the well it did run dry
We had not found the Holy Grail.
Back to the start we had to fly
But never thought that we did fail.
We worked and strove in boring ways,
To fill the pot again and dream
Of soon, when we would spend more days,
Wandering again, perchance to dream.
So this is life’s eternal search.
Back and forth we go and come.
The only one we have to teach,
Is our self, that life is fun.
High city walls are all about me.
Yet no walls can I see.
Storm clouds hang above my head
But no rain falls on me
Bright sun lights the horizon
A thousand miles away.
Fields of corn wave in the breeze.
Flowers bloom every day.
The walls they now close in
As storm clouds start to burst.
The corn is smashed flat,
The rain it feeds our thirst.
For I am one with nature,
At times I cannot see.
From this land I came and am
Still searching to be free.
Are you still asking questions
Of minds that cannot see.
Searching for the answers.
Answers there’ll never be.
Are you waiting for a moment,
A time when we’re all free.
Are you waiting for a time
Of truth and honesty.
You cannot go away
Until that day arrives.
Don’t you ever go away;
Please keep the hope alive.
I am a stranger in this world.
A cosmic fluke I can’t divine.
Its vagaries lack motivation.
It’s song and dance discordant time.
Am I body or have I body?
Was I made or did I grow?
From out this world did I once come?
Or into it, as some say so?
As the light wanes
I will fade in worldliness.
As life is the light
You are the lightness.
As the dark advances
I will regress
As death is the dark
Who will be the darkness.
When the forces of darkness are all around
I want to be where I can see,
Not where the unknown abounds.
I want to be – inescapably free.
Attractive Backgrounds and Headers can make a big difference to the appearance of your WordPress blog as they can also spice up your Desktop. Rotating them can add variety to your life and help keep your audience interest. This is one of my collection of different backgrounds from my natural surroundings which I am posting as galleries of photo images (without watermarks or text). If you think they will suit your WordPress Blog and/or Desktop you are welcome to use them. The only favour I would ask in recognition is that you will be kind enough to let your audience know they were produced by http://www.jamoroki.wordpress.com. See how I’m using them here on JAMOROKI and my Suai blog. I hope you like them. To download to your hard drive click on one of the images to bring up a slide show.
