A Universal Attitude Change

Poem By Tom Maxwell

It's not the same,
The way it was created to be,
How long will it last,
Will there be future generations to see?

The most intelligent creatures,
Ever to walk on this land,
Can send rockets into space,
But can't keep world peace no answer or plan.

We were given life on this planet,
Which reproduces all of our survival needs,
To share love, peace, and happiness,
Not to place judgments, living A life of greed.

When it comes to war and weapons,
No limits on cost, or destructive ways,
Knowing on all sides of this earth,
So many are homeless, starving every day.

A road to self - destruction,
Many different ways at any time,
It's possible now to end it all on any day,
We need a universal attitude change in everyone's mind.

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Friends That Touch Our Heart

We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,

Why Are You Here?

How long could you keep others interested,
Discussing, hobbies, personal things you do,
Not those once a year, experiences,
The things you create, build, work on,
