Madman 285



Take council
With a madman

Just because he's crazy
Doesn't mean it is stupid
I listened long and hard
And here's what I concluded
Be grateful listen and be kind
Eat good food and drink red wine
Time is short and life is good 
There's not much else to be understood

Take council
With a madman

Can be 284




Don't let who you think
You are
Stand in the way of who
You can be

The title of the book she read
Was things to learn before your dead
Then 20 years had come and went
And off to college her kids she sent
Again the pages she did turn
What's the meaning what's to learn
Joy, compassion, kindness, love
Peace and patience from above

Don't let who you think
You are
Stand in the way of who
You can be

Present 283




Past and future
Are only thoughts in
The present

The past is all dead
Just thoughts in my head
The future is a dream
Like walking on steam
So now is the time
To make up a rhyme

Past and future
Are only thoughts in
The present

Big deal 282




I'm nobody all
Packed up to
Go nowhere

I make such a big deal
About all that I feel
Then time sweeps it away
Like a snowstorm in May
So be of good cheer
The end is quite near

I'm nobody all
Packed up to
Go nowhere

Giant blast 281




The short road
Back to
Nowhere
(Life)

Life has been a giant blast
But now it's mostly in the past
Today can still be my very best
If I use my head and pass the test
There's always something new to learn
Until I take that final turn

The short road
Back to
Nowhere
(Life)

Busy 280





Where will
Today's activities
Take me

Busy busy in a tizzy
All it does is make me dizzy
Settle down and think a bit
See how all the pieces fit
A few good moves will change a lot
And yield results that are really hot

Where will
Today's activities
Take me

Purpose 279




Live with purpose
Die
Without regrets

Life is a very fragile experience
It's so easy to forget
That it may end today
So what do I do next
Support myself and my family
Be curious and keep learning
Cultivate gratitude, kindness
And goodwill for all beings
Stay fit and healthy

Live with purpose
Die
Without regrets
