To the ends of the earth

when one sees

to the ends of the earth

what encompasses

has it’s worth

bring forth a new beginning

write down the meaning found

let the old ways pass

to be distributed around

make way for them

for they have seen the light

to banish darkness

that comes at night

through all that has been discovered

what has been revealed

to dream of each other

the reality is sealed

Fire Escape

starlight during the day

I hear her call

moonlight shines down

I see her fall

escape down a fire escape

to hide from them all

embrace dreams

to hold a candle too

reposition life

to a standstill

beckon forth from within

thirst for knowledge

the key to begin

Grand Design

when I think of the grand design 

we have made on Earth like a map

creating our world

through different civilisations

similar shapes arise across the globe

throughout history as mankind progresses 

these shapes change

to the glass and concrete

the skyline of a city

mark our place in time

building the likes of which

can be seen from space

Raised by Wolves

take shelter from the gathering storm

we wait for it to pass

but we know in our hearts

fear prevails

as our surroundings darken

a path is found within

to lead us away to safety

what remains 

cannot be unbroken

like a child

fragile to begin with

then as strength returns

so shall we find in ourselves

the depth of courage

against disparity 

and awaken a truth

a burden of which we carry
