Disaster in the tropics

Life has paused
Nothing seems to be moving
Life is on stand still
Change is coming
Where is the bill?

Great thoughts arise
Panting and searching
For the prize
Where is this strange demise
Seems it’s bigger in size?

Questions unanswered
Life is on pause
Let’s hustle up
For the cause

23 Case closed

No need to argue
No need to frown
No need to be a clown

Once it’s so
It can never be no
So keep the stakes low
Make a bow
Take the blow

Understand that it’s time to go
Don’t try to be cute
Nice or sweet
It’s just time to know
That you he lost the race

Case closed!

20 Deep Blue sea 🌊

The oceans floor is so pure
It’s the deep blue sea that never sleeps
Tides of joyful sounds it sings
Swish swish swish
Moments of pure blue delight
Glistening and shimmering in the night
What love is so pure and deep
Oh it’s the love of the deep blue sea.

19 Living Light

The light of the world
Is love
Lots shines bright
In every happy heart

The light of the world is love
Let it bloom and blossom at all times
In every heart there is a plant

Never give up on a blooming heart
One that gives light to the loving heart.

17 Emotions

GOD creates emotions,
We feel them every day,
GOD secretly placed inside us,
We show them every day.

Some we Understand and some we don’t,
Some have roots buried in the soul.
Some we play with and Some play with us,
Some have no face at all

GOD creates emotions,
We feel them every day,

We Feel Good, We Feel Bad,
In Sorrow, Tears We’ve Had.
Our tears can flood the Desert,
that’s the power of emotions.

GOD creates emotions,
We feel them every day.

We laugh with the tides of waves,
Even the fishes feel shy,
A smile on each face, even the dead smile in their Graves,
that’s the power of emotions,

GOD creates emotions,
We feel them every day.

In Anger we shout like monsters,
All emotions goes in motion,
No Illusionist, can make it disappear,
That’s the power of emotions.

GOD creates emotions,
We feel them every day.

Hey, what is happening?
When you don’t feel one of them today, where is the smile on our friends?
We need to feel the bliss; We need to feel the pain,
We need smiling friends to bring back my fun.

GOD creates emotions,
We need to feel them every day.

16 Street Life

Left for the business
Came upon a blue iron cart
Parked by the shop side
Wow she exclaimed
I wonder what that could be
To my surprise
It was the cane man’s bed

Dreading the circumstances
She pulled to the shop
The distress was to see
It so close to where her
Business was

Never dream someone could
sleep in such a queer thing
Wonder what caused such an act
Wonder if he really had no home
A cart parked on the street
Was made his home

Life can take you places
In situations of the unknown
Living in a one room
Nestled on the streets
Snuggles by the curbside
Minding its own.
