I do not understand this place we live and call our home.

We gather all our comforts in, still we stand alone.

We venture out beyond the edge, yet what is there to see?

I’ve found there’s not much waiting there but more hypocrisy.

Give more of yourself than what you trust will be returned?

This will only lead to self destructive lessons learned.

Growing up we learn so many lessons to survive.

Times are getting tougher now, there’s more we need to thrive.

The body is a temple, treat it with utmost respect!

Nourish body, mind, and soul together or repent!

Know the people in your life are there to hold you true,

Question motives of the ones who say but do not prove,

Know you're worth more than a simple phrase or verbal state,

Actions speak a greater force than words upon your plate,

Give and take is all the same to some who do not know,

The difference lies in those who care enough to truly show.

Just yesterday I heard a cry, 
mourning for lost souls gone by
For yesterday brought tragedy, 
nothing left but waste to see.

Now we pray for all these souls,
Souls of those caught in the throws, as
Mother Nature bared her wrath,
Clearing all within her path.

As weeks go by and life goes on, 
We see more trouble and more storms,
What once was scenic and serene, is
Not much more than dust and ruin.

With more lives lost than those who’re born,
It makes one thankful for their own,
Grateful each and every day, that
Friends and family are okay.

So why is it that there are those, 
who see it crucial to their cause,
To see such heartbreak going on, 
But still they see fit to do harm.

To treat your brethren with distaste, 
will only show your own disgrace,
The true path to enlightenment, 
is never easy to accept.

There is no perfect human form,
We all have faults, we all do wrong.
The difference lies in those who see,
the value in generosity.
