Stranger – Promote Yourself

My mind was filled

With too many thoughts,

Thoughts of the past,

Thoughts of the future,

Thoughts about my near and dear;

I began to worry,

I was unhappy,

I felt so heavy.

One night, I saw in a dream,

A stranger on a train

Sitting opposite to me

And asking me,

‘Why are you unhappy?’

I was shocked!

Had he the power to read my mind?

He said slowly,

‘Let go everything,

Fix your mind on the Almighty,

Think of Him

And He shall think about you.’

I woke up with a start!

Who was this stranger?

I thought,

Well, let me try.

I let go everything,

Began to think of Him,

My worries disappeared,

I felt so happy and so light!

Baby – Promote Yourself

You are

A long time

Coming

 

Now

All time is

Yours

 

My time is

Yours since

Before

 

But your

Time is

Not mine

 

It is yours

I get to

Watch it

 

To feel how

You are

Not in me

 

But you were

There you

Grew

 

Into a paw

Of blood

And time

 

It felt good

To share

To receive

 

Now I live

To give

You time
