A Different Peace of Mind

I may be different

But we are all out there

The ideas I have

Aren’t out of place

I may try to lift them

And that’s not uncommon 

Don’t look at me

like I’m from outer space

*

I know I’m different

There’s no doubt there

The ideas I have

Are keeping pace

I may have to shift them

If they get forgotten

Don’t discount me

Like I’m a hopeless case

**

We may be drifting

Put the pedal to the metal

The world is shifting

As the dust settles

We find that fear

is left behind

When greed and hate

Are sent back to the grind

Clearing up

To an open road

And an open time

Fast machines

Blasting off the line

Shivers running

Down our spine

Help us find

Our peace of mind

**

Do I seem different?

I’m feeling out there

The ideas I have

You don’t have to chase

I may try to gift them

Right from the bottom

Don’t look at me

Like I have no taste

*

We are all different

Good to know you’re out there

The ideas we have

Build up home base

We may be different

But together we’ve caught on

You don’t have to tell me

We can all win this race

**

We may be drifting

*Shakes a pan handle

for the metal*

The world is sifting

Will the dust ever settle?

We find that folks

Get left behind

When greed and hate

Culture our mind

Clear it up

To an open path

And an open time

Riches in kind rivers

It’s not just gold that will shine 

Silver linings

We design

Help us find

Our peace of mind
