The Birth of Thought

Does it 
just spark 
from nothing 
Or is it 
meshed together 
bits and pieces 
slowly gathered 
over time 
Is it given 
from on high 
or some other source 
Will it lift 
or will it destroy 
will it shape 
and create 
Will it bring more 
or is it 
the end

What Can I Learn

Shaped hopes 
and crafted dreams 
carefully planted within my heart 
driving me to some unseen goal 

I could choose my way 
I could choose to not follow 
but the dreams 
the hopes 
call me forward 

calling my heart 
calling my mind 
calling my soul 
calling me

every step I take 
every leap I make 
every bit I learn 
I find more that calls me forward

Because of You

Because of you I am more 
Because of you I can be more 
Because of you I will be more 
Because of you I can dream 
Because of you I can dream more 
Because of you I can see dreams come true 
Because of you my heart can breathe 
Because of you my heart beats freely 
Because of you my heart can fly 
Because of you I can love 
Because of you I can live 
Because of you I am

It ends in y just like all the rest 
It starts with the rising of the sun 
And ends when it goes down 
Just like all the rest 
But to me 
There has always been something more 
It fuels all the rest 
It gives me strength to face 
And really anything 
That may happen to come my way 
It may be just a day 
But to me 
It will always be more

Some Simple Math

One = A lonely heart 
One + One = Three 
One whole + One whole = Two full lives 
One life given = One life filled 
One life served = One life fulfilled 
Two hearts - Pride = Heaven

One Who Struggles to Stand

I struggle 
I fight 
I fall 

I push 
I strive 
Only to fall again 

I stop and wonder 
Am I really any good 
Can I truly make a difference 

Truth speaks wisdom 
Truth speaks right 
Truth speaks hope 

The difference is not made 
At the finish line 
Or even in the winner's circle 

The difference is made 
In the journey to get there 
And in the efforts you make 

Win or lose 
Rise or fall 
The journey makes a difference

A Simple Check

I started off simply 
Wanting to show you my devotion 
Wanting to remind me 
To show you my devotion 
A simple activity 
Really nothing fancy 
Or really even very big 
It just takes a little time 
Simply taking a little time 
And I am reminded 
To serve thee 
To take time and learn more about thee 
To remember thee 
To follow thee 
To love thee 
It is just a simple act 
That takes just a little bit of time 
Just a little time 
Each and every day 
A little time 
That shapes my heart 
And drives my soul
