A blog about whatever randomosity my fevered mind conceives.

Euphoria!

I know so many secret things;

A million tales of man;

So lean in a little closer, friend –

Let me whisper what I can…

We came into this brilliant world

On the wings of yester-year –

When all around was splendour

And we knew not yet of fear.

The garden was the grandest place;

So ripe, and fresh and green;

And every word that passed our lips

Was kind – and never mean.

“Euphoria!” Our children sang,

As they ran – blissful – through the lea.

“Euphoria!” Our elders chirped

As they wandered, full of glee.

Each of us – from man to tot –

Kept a smile upon his face

And each of us knew paradise

When we were in that place.

Peace was in our every dream

When we knew not yet of war.

“Euphoria!” Was in our hearts

Before the Earth was tore.

Now lean in closer still, my friend,

As I tell you what was true

Listen closely, and you’ll know

What so very few souls do…

We lost those gardens in the end,

Not to rain – nor bitter snow

But it was greed that woke the chaos

And made our glorious gardens go.

Believe in evil serpent snakes –

If you truly feel you must –

But the devil resides in every man

And this is a wisdom you can trust.

Perhaps God made us to be good

But then he gave us each freewill

And if there is a being within the clouds,

He must regret this folly still.

For in each of us – despite the grace –

A wicked gremlin’s grown

And though goodness may still reside

It’s the wicked more oft shown…

We stripped the land of all its treasures

And ravaged beauty with cool desire

We laid waste to all once pure

And set “Euphoria!” afire.

We closed our ears, and walled our hearts

As we sought to rule it all

And deaf we were to all who suffered

As we held them in our thrall.

Until one day we looked about

And saw what we had done

And each of us found we no longer wanted

The things we’d thought we’d won.

So now we pray for God to save us,

From the horror that we’ve built.

We curse at him for being cruel

While ignoring our own guilt.

But freewill gives us each the power

To seek a second chance

And freewill gives us each the choice

To exit from this dance.

And yet we wait still for salvation

To come down from the skies

And every day that we sit idle

Another piece of “Euphoria!” dies.

Yet there is still hope to change our fate;

To sow the seeds of peace anew

There is a chance to bring back our gardens,

And the dream that once there grew…

But it’s up to us to heal scars

That we’ve set upon this land.

It’s up to us to find “Euphoria!”

And rebuild something grand.

So take these words of wisdom, friend

And let them guide you on your way;

Make your mark upon this world

But remember what I say…

Take this gift of life you have

And in living, remain wise

Think before you make your actions

And never – ever – close your eyes.

Live a life that’s full of wonder

Despite the errors that you make

And strive in everything you do

To give as often as you take.

Offer kindness, as you walk

And reach out a hand to those in need.

Lay “Euphoria!” within your steps

And help the Earth no longer bleed.

Keep the dream within your mind

And the hope within your heart

And then – perhaps – we’ll resurrect

What once we tore apart.

  1. That phrase, “God helps those that help themselves…” This makes me think of that. Glad someone writes about taking responsibility. Seems like there is so little of that these days!
