Poetry

By Lao Tzu

Always we hope...
Someone else has the answer...
Some other place will be better...
Some other time...
It will all turn out.

This is it.
No one else has the answer
No other place will be better.
And it has already turned out.

At the center of your being
you have the answers.
and you know what you want.
There is no need to run outside
for better seeing,
nor to peer from the window.

Rather abide at
the center of your being.
For the more you leave it,
the less you know.
Search your heart and see
the way to do
is to be.

 

Inspired by President-Elect Obama's Acceptance Speech, November 4, 2008.
(Can be sung to the tune of "She's Comin' 'Round the Mountain)

Yes I Can!

By Vicky Jeter

Can I have all that I need?
Yes I can!
Can you have all that you need?
Yes you can!
Can we have all that we need?
Can we be poverty free?
Can we have all that we need?
Yes we can!

Can I surrender all my fears?
Yes I can!
Can you surrender all your fears?
Yes you can!
Can we surrender all our fears?
Can serenity be here?
Can we surrender all our fears?
Yes we can!

Can I begin to heal?
Yes I can!
Can you begin to heal?
Yes you can!
Can we begin to heal
and United dare to feel?
Can we begin to heal?
Yes we can!

Can I realize my dreams?
Yes I can!
Can you realize your dreams?
Yes you can!
Can we realize our dreams?
Life is much more than it seems.
Can we realize our dreams?
Yes we can!

Can I transform my whole world?
Yes I can!
Can you transform your whole world?
Yes you can!
We can transform our whole world
in a Global Heart encircled.
We can transform our whole world.
Yes we can!

Overflowing Blessings,
Vicky
