THE RIVER OF TRUTH

I CRIED INTO THE NIGHT

LET'S GIVE UP THE WILL TO HATE

Dreaming with an African Queen

THE RIVER OF TRUTH

I went to the river of truth
just to take a drink---
I saw my picture in the river
then I began to think---

I thought about my earlier life
and my not taking any good advice
why--- I was telling a lot of lies---
and much to my surprise
without knowing why
I bagan to cry---

I have made mistakes in my life
this I cannot deny---
and though I do want to be perfect
I do not know why---

but when I think of the life I've had
my mood changes from sad to glad---
and a memory of a kiss
lingers on my lips---
to remind me
what I do not miss---

when I left the River of Truth
I felt that one day I would return---
I will go back to the river
just to see if I've learned---

By Roger Steele

Too many of us use our will power to hate instead of love.

This poem is all about giving up the will to hate.

LET'S GIVE UP THE WILL TO HATE

Let's give up the will to hate
and learn to believe in our fate---
we can do it ...it's still not too late
Let's give up the will to hate---

while reading through the pages
of this world's history---
I wonder
why all people aren't free---
I get mad while wondering
and then realize it is not up to me---
but I am still wondering
why all people still aren't free---

are people too greedy
to be able to share---
afraid of being hurt
if they show they care---
this world can still supply
all the things in life we need---
when will people come to life
and not be influenced by greed---

I say:
share your life with someone
enjoy yourself and just have some fun---
and don't forget to speak the truth
to let people get to know the real you---

Let's give up the will to hate
and learn to believe in our fate---
we can do it...it's not too late
Let's give up the will to hate
---

Have you ever tried to write a letter

to someone that you still love?

It is not an easy thing to do.

I tried and I cried---

I CRIED INTO THE NIGHT

I tried to write you a letter
but the words didn't come out right---
got to remembering our past affair
and baby, I cried into the night---

I tried to string some words together
but my heart kept getting in the way---
so baby, I cried into the night
my heart was going to have its say---

I even tried to type a few lines
the words couldn't convey how I felt---
then baby, I cried into the night
my heart did screem out for help---

now baby, I'm crying into the night
because you're not here with me---
somehow when I cry into the night
the hurt inside of me is set free---

DREAMING WITH AN AFRICAN QUEEN


It was late one night
when I had a strange dream---
and found myself talking
with an African Queen---
When I asked her a question
she gave me her attention---
I asked the African Queen---
what does a dream really mean?
I can still remember
exactly what she said---
the words are still inside
they echo in my head---
she said:
Why does your heart yearn?
to dream is to learn---
you will have time to grow
to think is to know---
then she said:
Look at the past and the present
to see what is going to be---
for in time, you will discover
you create your own destiny---
