Save Our Youth

American youths are handicapped.

Their goals are being shattered.

Who should be blamed for such travesty?

What should adults do to avoid this dilemma?

Where is the youth’s role models?

Why is the air so poisoned?

Some public officials are responsible.

These individuals spill gas on the flames.

These officials’ lives are deplorable.

They are known to have abusive relationships.

Some of their children are born out of wedlock.

Still, these are the ones who are elected.

Others tell glaring lies in the public arena.

People often hear them on radio and TV.

Yet, these are the leaders of the nation.

Unabashedly, they do so in God’s name.

Young people are the future of the nation.

Imagine how they are bogged down with paradoxes.

These statements are harmful and confusing to young minds.

Why aren’t public officials ideal role models to American youths?

It’s time for change in this diverse society that Americans love.

Spiritual Awakening

Life is a challenge.

People are always thinking.

In their heads are a running commentary.

This is what some think they truly are.

But these memories are false.

Many people dwell on the past and future.

They see the ends as justifying the means.

However, these perceptions are totally false.

The real You can be found in the Now.

It’s the presence is accessed in stillness.

So, be sure to completely silent your mind.

Then, you’ll start living in the present moment.

The past and the future are only One.

They are best described as the present.

Living with a thinking mind is unconscious.

While in stillness, one becomes conscious.

Between the space of stillness is the sacred.

This is where the real You are found.

With such presence, a person will tap into divinity.

This realization is called a spiritual awakening.

A Blessing in Disguise

When situations don’t work out don’t fight,

become upset, and keep pushing.

Just have a sense of when to let go,

relax, and be at peace.

Remember there isn’t always a solution.

If you have to try again,

come back at a later time.

Maybe the problem will resolve itself.

Sometimes we may realize it can’t,

so, we have to call an expert.

He or she may be able to help.

But the same principle applies.

If it’s a device it may be time to get another.

With some problems it may be the way things are.

Learn to accept these the way they are, and move on.

This may well be a blessed gift in disguise.
