It's In All of Us

As summer floats lazily by,
Counting the days left with a saddened filled sigh,
Wondering if someday time will be on our side,
Feeling its swiftness as our only reply.

Sun warmed days, one by one goes,
Each with a secret that makes it flow,
Occasional storms give spectacular lightning shows,
Like a spirit hidden inside waiting to glow.

Watching people passing through life,
So many lives, most full of strife,
Doing what they are told in blinded stride,
Never finding themselves and going for the ride.

Like each passing day,
Has its own separate way,
We have our own paths to lay,
That forms us out of the clay.

The easy way is to be as they are,
Maybe even going quite far,
But when we reach inside for that shining star,
That’s when we feel the embrace from God’s arms.

We are different for a reason,
Each of us distinct as the changing seasons,
If only we’d start believing,
That heavenly spirit we keep leaving.

It’s in all of us,
If in it, we’d just trust,
To do whatever we must,
So our hearts never lose God’s touch.

Artist's Description

Nowadays too many of us are getting caught up in technology and losing important qualities of our life. We try hard to be like the neighbors instead of ever finding out who we are. Today we have politician’s who lie to us so they can better their lives in our interest and religions who somehow think its okay to censor the Bible and then tell you you should live by their stripped version of it. God is not a religion made by man and to find him all you have to do is look within. In each and every one of us he/she has left an urge that nags us everyday, some of us call it Dreams and others foolishness. These dreams are you and yes to follow one is harder then just falling in place with someone else’s dream, but yours is there because of you being unique and I don’t know about you but I’d rather stand out in a crowd than follow blindly and be like someone else. Heck, my dream might even be better than theirs. Find out!
