There is enough in the world for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed.

Where The World Began

Im tired of being grateful for a chance to take a dive
Im sick of everything I do just to keep myself alive
When you cut away the skin that bears the brand
Standin in the darkness, baby, there I am
Chorus:
Standin in the darkness
Someone call my name out
Standin in the darkness
Someone put the flame out
Standin in the darkness
Baby, there I am
Where the world began
Saw the man in jamaica, he had a shadow on his back
I recalled the ring of fire, and he wore his suit of black
When the legend and the ocean meet the sand
Standin in the darkness, baby, there I am
Chorus:
Standin in the darkness
Someone call my name out
Standin in the darkness
Someone put the flame out
Standin in the darkness
Baby, there I am
Where the world began
Everyone is so fabulous, hey, we all got our gun
Old snakeys not a sinner, no, he just shows us how its done
When you separate the wretched from the damned
Standin in the darkness, baby, there I am
Chorus:
Standin in the darkness
Someone call my name out
Standin in the darkness
Someone put the flame out
Standin in the darkness
Baby, there I am
Where the world began

Why Is There Such Sadness In The World?

WHY IS THERE SUCH SADNESS IN THE WORLD?

Why is there such sadness in the world?
Why is there so much sadness in me?
Twilight is sad its true
But I just wished Happy New Year
To a man who will probably die this year
I am just an old fool
With so many fears
But the Sadness
And its causes
Are real too much-

The World is Full of Kindness

The World is full of kindness—
And not the poor alone;
We Christians in our blindness
Bow down to hearts of stone;
The clever, bitter cynic,
Whose poisoned “soul” is dead,
And, like the rotten clinic,
Raves, helpless, on his bed.

The world is full of kindness—
But not the White alone;
The heathen in his blindness
Bows down to wood and stone;
But all men are his brothers,
In spite of all the “Powers,”
And the things he does for others
Shew whiter souls than ours.

The world is full of kindness—
But not the Lean alone;
The Fat man in his blindness
Bows down, and not to stone;
But when a friend’s in trouble,
And an honest friend at that,
Then I’d turn to the Fat man
In spite of all his fat.

The world is full of kindness
If it is let alone,
And men’s hearts in their blindness
Are neither ice nor stone.
In spite of all pretences,
We get it from Above;
In spite of all defences—
Red blood, kind hearts, and love.

The World Is Not Enough

We haven’t “All the time in the World
For life is far too short for “Someday”
Even this wide World in not enough
Accept nothing less than love today

Here For The World

There's nothing missing
You've got it all here
The sound of the thunder
The sound in your ear
You've no reminder no old photograph
Did you come for the money
Did you leave for the laugh
So read the words, Read the words
You've got them all here
You've got them all here, For the world
Here for the world, I'm here for the world
And all you've got in it
I've nothing missing
I've got you all here
The sound of a thunder
Its sound in your ear
We've no reminder no old photograph
Did you come for the money
Will you leave for the laughs
So read the words, Read the words
You've got them all here
You've got them all here
For the world, For the world
We're here for the world
And all you've got in it
Your here for the world, For the world
Your here for the world
And all they've got in it

Prepare the world for the pleasure of being fair

Many a people do not live
They are just alive
It is not, believe, not a lie
But as true as the blue sky

Not that they can’t try
They are always lost in a cry
Over spilt milk and fry
Their enthusiasm in thoughts dry

Never take that this does mean
That they are weak and mean
They are as strong and clean
As each one in any clan

Make them understand and feel that

My things are mine
And they are like a mine
Unexplored and a lot remain
To be discovered and made fine

And that

My things are much more
Than what surface above the floor
Rigorous search brings them to the fore
As exercise only makes you sweat more

Teach them how to be assertive
Help them become sensitive
Quite sure, they grow positive
Productive and thus effective

The ultimate is to make everyone share
The things, they think, are rare
And only for them, and to prepare
The world enjoy the pleasure of being fair

One Cannot Change The World

One cannot change the World so why even bother to try
Since the fundamentalists out there do their best to deny
Others of their beliefs those who to them think differently
Extremists of any sort seem dangerous to me.

One cannot change the World but by good example one can lead
One cannot grow crops if one doesn't plant good seed
If everyone changed themselves for the better then all wars would cease
And there would not be mistrust and hatred and there would be peace.

One cannot change the World for that much help one would need
But where one would fail many might succeed
If billions changed for the better the war men would not have a say
And beautiful peace would be with us to stay.

For to change the World one can play a part
By helping out others out of kindness of heart
Down the pathway to peace you are leading the way
And with help from many the World may change for the better one day.

Not Enough Love In The World

Sometimes I wonder where it is loves goes
I dont know if even heaven knows
But I know we had dreams
That didnt quite come true
And now Im not the one,
Little boy, whos keeping you
Chorus:
I was either standing in your shadow
Or blocking your light
Though I kept on trying
I could not make it right
For this girl
Theres not enough love in the world
I know people hurt you so bad
They dont know the damage
They can do, and it makes me so sad
How we knock each other down
Just like children on a playground
Even after that o sun went down
Chorus
Oh darling this is still a shady little town
And sometimes its so hard to smile
For the world, for the camera
And still you have something left
You dont have to prove nothing to nobody
Just take good care of yourself
Im not easy to live with
I know that its true
Youre no picnic either, baby
And thats one of the things
I loved about you
But a time will come around
When we need to settle down
Got to get off this merry-go-round
Chorus

Change The World

Imagine a place only your soul can vision
The heart of a child who looks, sees, and listens
Paints a picture using every color
And what she sees she sees it like no other
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen
The art of innocence makes so much sense
Of a place there no wrong has well then it's wasted
Filtered through the eyes of a pure mind
A one of a kind, paradise for you and I, you and I
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen
Break the cycle, find your rhythm
Share the gift that you've been given - Love
You can, You can Change The World
You can Change The World with love
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen

Poets and Writers Unite (For The Good Of The World)

May all fellow poets and writers of the whole world unite
to show the flame of inspiration is now still burning bright.
We’re also aware of the fact that the pen is mightier than the sword
and that with inspired verses or stories people will never get bored.

The world as it is now is on the brink of collapse
and so with our literary efforts we should not lapse.
We all have the power to change the world for the better
let us unite to speak and write with one motion together.

So many times in the past humanity has been laid low
because of its negligence to conscience writings show.
There are certain things written and handed down from the past
that indicate the way we’re heading now these days are our last.

We must set the example of truth, righteousness and love
which will assure us to get much needed help from above.
There is no real limit to what we all can achieve
if we stand together and each other don’t deceive.

We are all one big family that is now struggling to survive
so in doing what we can to help one another we will thrive.
With our collective efforts we must turn the situation around
and at the same time keep both our feet firmly on the ground.

For the good of the whole world then we must move forward
and stop the current trend of mankind from plunging toward,
the depths and fires of hell it has been to many times before
as it ignores the inner voice of conscience prior to another fall.

The Peace of God vs. The Peace of The World

-God says I give you the peace of God, that passes all Understanding
The World says ' I will give you peace' but the world doesn't tell you that that peace is just too Demanding.
-God says Love thy neighhbor
The world says hate thy enemy and love only under certain circumstances.
-God says I will show you the way, for I am a lamp unto your feet
The world says You are on your own.
*The peace of God vs the Peace of the World

The world says ' Go head girl put cha leg up' and that 69 is fine
-The Lord says: ' Have fun' but Honor me cus I am yours and you are Mine.
The world says ' this ain't burger king, you can't always have it your way'.
-The Lord says 'don't worry, tommorrow will be a brighter day'!
The world gives you hope, peace and joy that is only temporary
-But the Lord gives you joy like a river overflowing, smiles that have other people glowing.
He makes your enemy your footstool,
whereas the world lets everyone walk all over you.
The world gives you a candle that will soon burn out
-God gives you a lamp, that will eliminate all doubt
* The peace of God vs the Peace of the world.

Oh the illusions of peace from the world
And the reality of God's Peace
It gives you the ability to teach
the ability to preach
and the ability to face seen and unseen realities.
oh the illusion s seem similar,
But NO, OH NO there are NO commonalities!

So which one will you take?
The Peace of God or the Peace of the World.

The World?

The World?
The World Is Big, The World Is Wide
The World Is Always On Your Side
The World Is Holding You Up But Keeping You Down
The World Is There When You Fall On The Ground
The World Is Safe.. For Now.

I Love God/For The Beauty Of The World

I love God
For the Beauty of the world-
For the people I care for in my life-
For so much Blessing -

But what of the the hole in the ground?
The distant cold at the end of everything?
The injustices the evils
They are God's too-

I love God for the blessings
But what of the evils?

If The World Were To End

If the world were to end,
I will hold onto my breath,
And hope that the movie would rewind,
To pick up the pieces I left,
Behind.

If the world were to end,
I will thank everyone,
For loving and making it all right for me,
Making me run and see the one,
True me.

If the world were to end now,
I will do all I can to,
Stop all the moments of the world for you and me,
And have this world all back to us till,
Eternity.

See the world is anon...

There are eyes within eyes
But blink; and these words are gone!
Open—your eyes
And then see the world is anon...

All is but one grain...
One ear of rice
"What more need—you or I'
That has lived, need more of life!

{The wisdom of the wind}...
Comes from seeking-out its source...
Back to the beginning...

Therefore: Harvest
What your love might carry?
Be but both empty and full,
For in death, shall we not all marry?

The Reason For Being

To every true love
There is no question
A doubt never felt
For true love
Has no wants or needs
That are not felt
By the one they love so dear
For to beg is to slay
The true meaning of love
True love gives without hesitation
The reason for being
For to pounder to long
Brings dought
Which brings the strangulation
Of the love held sacred
Oh to have this love
Is to have the world
For there is no greater gift
Then one can give to another
Is one's self

End Of The World....

i'm not concerned about the end of the world...
for me the world ends every day that we're
still fighting wars, that children around the world
go to bed hungry, that families are left homeless,
that men and women cant find jobs, that people
are denied justice and equality, that children cant
afford to go to school, that old people cant get
medical care, enough to eat, or a place to live...
that lonely people cant find love.... and that nobody
seems to give a damn!
