How can I say it in words that contradict themselves?
There are books on the shelves.
Might they as well not have been written?
I am smitten.
Say, Why Our Children Can’t Read, to name but one.
Who is swayed by that under the Sun?
If words could do it we are doing well.
In truth, though I hate to say it, we are in Hell.
Talk the talk or walk the walk or both?
We have truth by the throat.
Liars, liars everywhere.
Poisoning the air.
Lies kill, if we let them do it they will.
In the name of God do you want to live?
To love means to give.
Give yourself, give what you do your all.
When you hear music go with it, your ears are not a wall.
Must we sink in a sea of corruption, death and lies?
You know you don’t believe them, be wise.
All I ask, all you have to do, in everything be true.
Why oh why do you think that’s a tall order?
Who wants a wall on the Mexican border?
All it means is doing what you do.
Really doing it, for your sake and God’s be true.
Let yourself go, sink into a book.
Or film or whatever, if its good its worth a second look.
You know what’s good, its what suits you, and often many others too.
Don’t let others make up your mind, you own your brain, be kind.
Accept guidance from the good, they’re on your side the good ones, be as you should.
When you know if you know tell others, share.
If you care.
It’s a hard oul’ station as people in Ireland say and getting harder all the time.
We suffer from crime.
You can do this, you can’t, you can’t say that, who made the rules?
Crooks and fools.
Don’t be argumentative, don’t be like them, just do it.
Be yourself, there’s nothing to it.
Why do I have to tell you what a baby knows?
The king has no clothes.
The truth stands naked with nothing to hide.
When people cover up you know they lied.
Say what you mean, mean what you say.
You are as good as your word.
I go away.
The truth is here to stay.
It never goes away.
Truth is your friend.
