Man is a Half Formed Thing

leave a comment »

galaxy-universe

Man is a half formed thing
He holds hands to try make him whole
Born from the womb of the Earth
An adolescent, ignorant of his role

What question has been asked?
That Man must answer blind
With conquest, invention and chaos
Leaving many used men behind

We see much but not enough
Back billions of years we see
The construction of our universe
From the Big Bang using Relativity

At night I feel so small and helpless
Under the star-filled dark canopy
Will Man just sputter out with the Sun
Or find a way to echo in eternity?

I feel a wind rise at our back
It pushes us ever on
Through the darkness of our own night
To the hope of a new dawn

What’s Right?

leave a comment »

Justice1

It’s just a fairytale
But you preach “It’s right”
It’s just a fairytale
But you insist “It’s right”
I think on the whole
It’s about power and control
It’s your tool for evil rule and “It’s not right”

We’ve learned from many teachers
Who believed what’s right
And they learned from many teachers
Who believed what’s right
Like them we took the best
And we discarded the rest
Because we need a modern view of what’s right

There are many things still wrong
On the road to what’s right
There are many things still wrong
On the road to what’s right
But as a democratic collective
We can be much more effective
To serve and to do what’s right

For When The Rains Came

with 8 comments

Rain-In-Paris

If there is no God,
We’ve no one to blame,
For when the rains came;
And if there is no God,
We’ve no one to blame,
For when the storms came;

We predict the weather,
Create cities for shelter,
We share & work together
So tomorrow is better;
We find a natural solution,
The incremental execution,
Of a billion year evolution,
For our miracle resolution.

We make our human condition,
With democratic submission,
We accept subtraction and addition,
Without prayer or contrition,
We believe in what we agree,
And accept what we must be,
Without the shouting and wails,
Of medieval fairy tales.

The Universe doesn’t Know

leave a comment »

Cosmos

Ah…the universe doesn’t know
The truth of what’s beauty
The truth of what’s right.
It doesn’t know the future
It awaits our answer
As we compete and fight.

The answer we build together
From competition
From risks and duress.
And of the many who strive
Some will fail
Some will sow progress.

Our birth and death
Show we are links
In a millennial chain.
That we are but stardust…
We’re from the stars
And shall return again.

Fairytale

with 4 comments

Sometimes I take refuge
In childhood fairytales
Where right hero defeats wrong villain
And pure heart rips through malevolent veils
It stills my beating heart and
Soothes my aching searching soul
It is a little Light to give some hope
When a complex Universe takes its toll

But you say you speak for God
…Do not lie to me
If God exists he wants big answers
And not your ugly atrocity
History is filled with liars
Who say what God would say
Before they lead people blindly
Into some barbaric play

The universe asked a question
“What is the best way to exist?”
Many civilisations have answered
“This way is best we insist”
Many Messiahs stood alone
And answered with their vision
A step for the next Messiah to see more
And to offer the next revision

No one knows the future
Only death is certain
The Universe was created
Does God know the intention?
Man created fairytales
As a Light to help us for Good
But in Paris they spread darkness
In a way no loving God would

The Fire of Experience

with 2 comments

Anvil

The hammer falls, steel on steel
The fire, the heat and the dirt
The sweat and chaos of it all
The pleasure and the hurt.
We interact with ceremonies,
And blessed with sweet incense
We’re moulded, yes, we’re forged
In the fire of experience

The truth is handed down
With sacred words burning bright
So they say to control us
So they say to bind us tight
But I have spoken to God
And I’ve said, it doesn’t make sense
He agreed, yes, it’s forged
In the fire of experience

You are born with a clean slate
You build on the best of the past
You do what is effective
To overcome the number cast
And new friendships need a force
To pull them off the neutral fence
To push them, yes, they’re forged
In the fire of experience

10 Commandments for a Civilised World

with 6 comments

10 commandments

(These new commandments take the basics for living

Such as “do not steal or do not kill” as given)

 

1. Seek your purpose and find the right place in the world for you.
Accept with patience when you are lost or waiting for your turn to do.
Understand this is true for others as it is true for you.

2. Accept that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

3. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

4. Be effective. Choose the action that allows the most good to shine through.

5. Manage yourself. Manage your fears or they will manage you.
Manage your body with good food and exercise to refresh it anew.
Manage your mind with whatever works for you.

6. Love your family. Show your love all day long.
Create a foundation of love, laughter, security and trust for your family to grow strong.

7. Provide. Develop your talents and what you can give.
While you have something to share you will never be alone as long as you live.

8. Be humble. Remember your mind is small, so fill it with the right things.
Fix your own faults before you try to fix those that others bring.

9. Live. Live each moment as if it was your last.
Challenge life and be different from the past.

10.Accept that there are no answers as to why…don’t waste time in search or fright.
Burn bright each day before the night.

I welcome any comments on the above. I have collected these based on my journey and accept that they may not resonate with others. I would be interested to hear of any other views.

God and CCTV

leave a comment »

labimg_870_One-Nation-Under-CCTV

We don’t need the fire
Or the brimstone of hell
We’ve found something
That will do just as well
We fear its all seeing eye
Will observe us if we sin
And we fear the penance that
Our transgressions will bring
We don’t need prayer
We can telephone our plea
And we don’t need God
We’ve got CCTV

We don’t need confession
We’ve another ceremony
We now explore our guilt
On the couch with therapy
We don’t need the bible
We’ve so many laws
And self-help books
To help fix our flaws
We’ve come so far since
Moses parted the Red Sea
So we don’t need God
We’ve got CCTV

We asked God for meaning
But silence is all we hear
We may feel empty
And be filled with fear
We may be seduced by
Evil leaders and religious lies
With evil manipulation
Wrapped in a meaningful disguise
We may commit many sins
By what they decree
To replace God’s meaning
Unseen by CCTV

A Human in Heaven

leave a comment »

Michelangelo, Last Judgment (1)

I am in heaven
And the place is very strange
And compared to life on earth
There is a lot of change

There is no competition
There is no fight to survive
There is no need to procreate
To keep the species alive

There is no give and take
And no tasks to fullfil
And no bonding together
Through experience and skill

There are no seasons
And there is no change
No birth, marriage or death
No ceremonies to arrange

There is no need to eat
Or to drink some fine wine
There is no love or hate
And all our thoughts align

There are no worries
Although God needs to be adored
All that I remember as a human
Is gone and, frankly, I’m bored.

Wisdom without Faith

“Meaningless, Meaningless…All is Meaningless”.

Generations come, and generations go
We ask why, but we do not know
What has been, will again be done
For there is nothing, new under the sun

Like chasing the wind, how hard we run
But still there’s nothing, gained under the sun
The rich and the poor, the foolish and the wise
Live but their day, and then each dies

The earth it turns, and the seasons bring
A time for everyone, and a time for everything
To the wise a pattern, awaits to be found
Beneath the changing waves, and the changing ground

A live dog is better, than a regal dead lion
Enjoy life and grow talents, that you can rely on
For while there’s life, there’s hope in your heart
Once dead you’ll never, ever again play a part

Do not be diverted, do not be deceived
Do not be indifferent, to the gift you’ve received
Do not be afraid & waste, your day to burn bright
But burn all the brighter, because you know the night

Generations come & go, but the earth remains
The sun also rises, & falls to rise again

“Love, Love…All is Love.”
