THE MAGIC

I do not need a wing to fly
Neither need a plane to travel,
I need no linking park.

Born to fly
Born to travel
Born a link.

I am the wind
I am the air
I am the breeze.

Harsh or soothing
Hard or soft,
Wild or mild
Mean or gentle.

Life, the teacher
Events, the preacher
Life, the bender
Events, the defender.

My piece, my peace
My ink, my charm
My aura, the magic.

 

THE OPTIMIST’S CREED

No matter the speed
None can God, exceed
Though i succeed
Or fail to proceed,
I shall withstand greed
And to my motto; heed
Even if i lack feed
With no zeal to breed
Then i watch my deed
And nurture my seed,
When i run into need
In a forest of weed
I shall not concede
For God will intercede
That, all; will precede
Then nothing can impede,
If divinely guaranteed
For He does supercede
Even the OPTIMIST’S CREED.

 

LET IT RAIN

Showers of blessing
Showers of peace
Showers of healing,
Rain, and cleanse the land.

Rain, spirit supreme
Rain, saviour superior
Reign within forever
Reign without everlasting.

Rain mightily
Rain thunderously
Reign tremendously
Reign jealously.

Rain, flood the earth
Sweep across the crystal sea
Rain, we thirst
Rain, we starve
Please rain, renew us
Rain and revive us
Rain, we perish.
