Simplicity


Why do we complicate such simplicity?
Man has no idea how simple it all can be
We are connected by the power of electricity
Energy the link to set us all free

God provided the power within us
Jesus preached the way to go
All the hype from olden day focus
The world confused, faith running low

Man has the power the energy needed
Everything he thinks will come to him
If Jesus messages had been heeded
man would have had no desire to sin

So turn your attention to your own thought
for what you think will come to you
Remember the lessons Jesus taught
that what you wish most will soon come true

It's all in belief and knowing why
feeling the power we hold inside
Our world could change in the blink of an eye
If we used Jesus as our guide

Jesus and Buddha and many others
all knew how to direct their soul
They showed the world and their brothers
that with belief they could be whole

Author notes
Fixing this world is as simple as getting people to believe in spirit and themselves. However because man has made it so complicated through his own ego, based on false man made religions, it is now the hardest thing to fix.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
