Turbulent Times

Turbulent times we live in,
Expressions found anew,
Disrespect, uncaring souls,
Violence through and through.

Chaotic times we live in,
Opportunities to reassess,
Our priorities and our values,
All we’ve chosen to suppress.

Changing times we live in,
Comfort zones blown away,
Will we seize the opportunity?
Let our souls come out to play?

We’ve little choice, the inside out
Has nowhere left to hide,
Who we are and how we feel
Just will not be denied.

Which leaves us feeling frightened,
Exposed and vulnerable,
Yet the truth of inner power,
Reveals a soul untouchable.

For many this is new,
Release from doctrine tight,
Not quite sure just what to do,
They hold on with all their might.

The need to pass responsibility,
With promises to reap,
Means ignoring the inner feeling,
Follow someone else, like sheep.

Turbulent times we live in,
Time to re-awake,
Our hearts and passions fire
The life we wish to make.
