Peace I give to you, freely;
For peace is a gift for all.
May you be blessed to know peace within,
And find peace everywhere you go...

Peace I pray for our nations,
All around the world;
May peace build more bridges,
And tear down dividing walls...

Peace I bless to every home,
For all of life on earth;
May we embrace peace forthwith,
To celebrate His heralded birth...

Peace

Moving forward courageously
Accepting life lives dangerously
Actions result in consequence
Chosen often with nonchalance

Freedom remains priceless
Without exception, lives hopeless
People afraid of futures
Locked up in various cages

Standing together bravely
Against all human slavery
People need fresh air and oxygen
To think clearly, not boxed in

Locked up or down indifference
Brain chemicals resistance
Frustration and vexation
Government consternation

Freedom remains priceless
Beyond power and control vices
People are not islands, but
Need moral guidance

Standing together bravely
We don't condone slavery
Compassion embraces
Surviving Covid's aces

Freedom remains priceless

The man sat down by the warmth of the fire,
Thinking back on his day of tribulations and trials;
Wondering what was next for his challenging life,
But trying to still focus on doing what was right...

For hope and fear they stand over us like a force -
We get to choose which one creates the greatest impact on our world;
And although it's easy to give advice to others who are in need,
It's not always evident the path we should tread...

That man weighed up all the pros and cons of his path, and
Made a good decision that on his family would last;
He chose hope and had faith in all the good,
Knowing that ultimately his soul's freedom was assured...

So no matter what your circumstances,
You can always prevail long term;
Have hope for tomorrow and
Your future blessings you'll have earned...

Hope and fear

Verse 1
You've gone through life thinking you're a dull stone,
Always getting in trouble and made to feel like you're a clone -
Not special, not shiny,
Just limited and human...
Never sublime...
Never truly awesome...

But remember... You've got to remember...

Chorus
That you... You've got stardust in you...
And you... You're a star...
So shine... Shine brightly now...
Shine brightly now...
You're a special star...
Yes, oh yes, baby...
That's what you are... (end chorus)

Verse 2
And when you embrace...
Embrace your special self,
You'll shine... You'll shine...
Brighter than a diamond can...
And you'll know... You'll know...

Verse 3
You're precious and you're real...
Yes, you're precious and you're shining brightly...
Brightly like a star...
Forever and always...
That's what you are...

So remember... Always remember...

Chorus

Verse 4
So remember that you're special,
Not limited in any way...
And you may be human...
But you're stardust born and made...
Always sublime...
Always awesome...

Verse 5
You're stardust, baby...
And that's worth everything...
You're stardust, baby...
So keep shining...
You're stardust always...
Just keep shining...

And remember... Always remember...

Chorus

Verse 6
Yeah, you're stardust, baby...
That's what you are...
That's what you are...
You've got stardust in you...
You're a star...

You've got stardust in you...

In their eyes you may be incomplete
as they seek out the shiny baubles and squeak of shallow vessels and find them not wanting,
despite human nature being peacock taunting.

By their lips they may ululate, the wars and strife who souls duly break, but of you they may scorn for you break the mould by quiet storms.

In their eyes you may be incomplete
for human beings have clay for feet;
we hurt and claw and crash and burn,
slaughter and fight against, and turn.

By their lips they may not celebrate your existence born by fate and choice;
for those who have the highest climb
must do so alone with no solace or voice.

We are the ones: The leaders and saviours of the undeserving masses who would not give us the light of day; but we are the Light and He sees all, and those humans remain very small in comparison to the universe's thrall -

Our crown of thorns transmuted victoriously to glorious gold;
Our enemies defeated for good as we claim saved souls.

We are the light

Verse 1
I'm sitting here trying to write a love song -
Not for you this time;
But for me, so I can feel strong;
To remind myself that I am good not matter what
And that losing you is another lesson in my life book...

Verse 2
'Cos I loved you so fiercely and you took me down, down, down...
And I miss you so badly, I'm feeling numb, numb, numb...
But the time has come...
For me to move on... To move on, on, on...
So, listen carefully now....
'Cos...

Chorus
This is not a love song for you baby...
No... Oh-oh... Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
This is my good luck song baby,
'Cos I have to love me first and
I've gotta put me first...
This time...
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...

This is my love song...
This is my love song...
This is my love song...
For me... To me...
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah... (end chorus)

Bridge
And all this time I've been carrying a burden that wasn't mine.... Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
And I was blind to the crimes you were doing...
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
Oh, but I got wise with the times and kept moving... Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
Kept moving... Kept moving on...
On... On... On...
And... (end bridge)

Chorus

Verse 3
And you're trying to reconcile now...
You're just realising how good I was for you...
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
But I'm not down with the timing, baby...
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
'Cos I've put you behind me...
Behind me... Oh, yeah... Behind me...
So...

Chorus

And I'm not trying to drive you crazy, baby,
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...
I'm just trying to keep my sanity lately...
So, I've gotta remember this...
Yeah, I've gotta remember this...

Verse 5
This is my good luck song baby,
'Cos I have to love me first and
I've gotta put me first...
This time...
Yeah... Yeah, yeah, yeah...

This is my love song...
This is my love song...
This is my love song...
For me... To me...
Yeah.... Yeah, yeah, yeah...

This is my love song... (For me... To me...)

Verse 1
You remind me of everything that's amazing in this world,
And I can't stop thinking about you and everything you do;
And I know that you love me in all the ways you are,
So thank you for being you and all the kindness you have shown...
Oh-oh...

Chorus
My words are simple and my thoughts are pure,
I love you always and will forever more,
And no matter what happens or wherever we are,
This remains a simple song, binding our love for all time... (end chorus)

Verse 2
Our time together is the best I've ever known,
And it's been a lifetime of blessings in our home,
We've known each other for forever and a day,
And we tell each other everything,
We love and work and play...
Oh-oh...

Chorus

Verse 3
Please know that I appreciate everything we have and will always feel blessed to have such joy and happiness;
You make a difference to my life and the world,
And everyone knows you're an upstanding guy all told...
Oh-oh-oh... Oh-oh-oh...

Chorus

Verse 4
Yes, my words are simple but the meaning is deep and pure...
I love you forever and in my soul you are heard...

Simple song

If you raise your hearts and faith up high,
Lift your voices to the sky;
Sing "Hallelujah, hallelujah",
He will hear you,
Free your soul divine...

If you raise your soul further still,
Never questioning His guidance or will,
He will free your life from all the dark,
And you'll be blessed by His protective spark...

Sing "Hallelujah, hallelujah",
He will hear you;
Sing "Hallelujah, hallelujah",
He is always there for you...

Sing "Hallelujah, hallelujah"

About Me

Bio

I've been a writer and artist all my life but focused on finance and business for my career to date. However, this year I've spent time writing over 170 lyrics and poems and would love to pursue this as a career change. It is fulfilling and inspiring as I know my words help people every day.

CV/History

I've written lyrics and poems (for myself and others) my whole life and a few poems have been published.
I hope to pursue this more extensively and add to this CV section.
My Twitter profile showcases my work.
My Facebook profile is currently more related to my personal life, although I have shared my artistic endeavours with friends and family.
My LinkedIn profile is highly geared to my existing finance and business career. I will likely create specialised profiles on these sites and others.
Thank you for your interest in my work.
