Inner Space

inner space

In the great here and now
Everything’s changing
Everyone’s turning
Eyes to a new light

Some with hope and devastation
Some with the light of new life
Each fueled by the desire
For inner peace and love

The changing ones are leading
In the back doors of our minds
With carefully planted words and songs

Right up front in the conference halls
On the screens
In the churches
On the scenes

Yet pay attention to the quiet ones,
The ones who lead with gentleness and service
In the backdrop of the crowd

For Jesus even said, “Blessed are the meek”
And the meekest of us all
May possess the inner space
To hold the love that opens up
All our starving hearts

A Life Fulfilled

Twisted clock face. Time concept

Time keeps ticking on
Bringing with it a subtle sense of panic
For a life not fully lived,
Tasks still to be completed,
Fulfillment of dreams still out of reach

So much still to do
Before the sun rises on a new day,
Before the passage of time
Has more space between the seconds

In the meantime,
We can fit more love into the minutes
Stretch them out
And make the days grow longer
From the love that’s poured within

It’s the only way we know
To quell the human panic,
Live the myth of life fulfilled with time,
And live a life fulfilled with Love
