Steps

Stairs                    Steps

Certain steps along the way…

When we are young and so impressionable

When our ways are changing every day

When love and support are our best influences…

Certain steps along the way.

When we grow and learn and live

When we are taught how to act and what to say

When our family guides us through right and wrong…

Certain steps along the way.

When we leave to start out on our own

When we have more responsibility with every day

When all we have learned shapes who we are…

Certain steps along the way.

When we choose our life-long love

When our lives are open to come what may

When we think about all there is to experience…

Certain steps along the way.

When we have a family of our own

When it is time to show someone else the way

When the steps in life seem far too steep…

We will know the steps that we should take…

When we encounter all of this world’s ups and downs…

Those certain steps will show the way.

Vanquish

Cerebral images pervade your night
Eye locked visions in mind’s eye sight
Blank pages with much to write
A tapestry of perception in black and white.

Wish it all away…
No candle or magic star.
Just you, and yourself
And experiences of so far.

Wish it all away…
Wipe the slate clean.
Put hope into words
And say what you mean.

Task at hand                   Sample portions               Fifteen minutes
Everyday life                  Food for thought              National stage
Real emotions                What to consume             Bad timing
Sharp as a knife              And what to not               Turn the page

Harsh words                  She the suitor                   Student athlete
Six year grudge             He the sought                   Next step school
Lost time friend             Too blind to see                Many distractions
Be the judge                   Lost a lot                           Played the fool

Jaded gentleman                          Convenient comfort
Could not care                               Tried to feel
Put up walls                                   Broke her heart
Stayed right there                          It was not real

Wish it all away…
Give wings to all is well.
Lift up with mighty means
And fly out of your shell.

Wish it all away…
Let dreams take flight.
Grasp for what you want
And hold on with all your might.

In this moment                Reach for more              Share the wealth
Years remain                    Easier it seems               Enrich together
Cherish the now               Realistic goals                Find the sun
Vanquish the vain            In lofty dreams              In every weather

Healthy core                     Beautiful girls                    Places to see
Keep it fit                           Reflective light                  Worlds to share
Staying young                   Keep you strong                Minds like clay
Grind and grit                   Reasons to fight                Shape them there

Hidden love                    Rhythmic existence             Final scene
Ready to find                  Music of the heart               One act play
Seek and enjoy               Drum pound beat                Be the hero
Body and mind               The guitar part                    Save the day

Project an image                         Open to anything
Set the stage                                Brand new lease
Build a legacy                             Broken no more
Enliven the page                         Found my peace

Cerebral images shine some light
Life time lessons in mind’s eye sight
Blank pages with much more to write
A tapestry of perception in black and white.

Wish it all away…
My place is right here.
Stay true to myself
And be crystal clear.

Wish it all away…
The past is in the past.
The future really is now
And we are here at last.
