"The Faith Of A Child"

Lenny Kravitz

Let's work together
We are one big family
Joined forever like the branches of a tree
In this world we are neighbors
There is no immunity
Hurt a member, you hurt the whole community

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child

We're facing problems at a catastrophic rate
Folks are desperate
So many wars are on our plate
We're using religion
And with it we're pushing hate
Wonder if there'll be time to change our fate

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child

I know we can make it
I know
I know we can make it
Why can't we work it on out

I know we can make it
I know
I know we can make it

You know
Anything the mind can conceive
We can achieve
So why don't we put our minds together
And meditate on peace
With the faith of a child

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child
Have the faith of a child
Have the faith of a child

I'm A Believer
Lenny Kravitz

I got to let it, got to let it, got to let it go
I got to live by faith, relax, sit back, enjoy the show
The only element that's standing in the way is me
So now's the time to lay it at your feet
And let it be, let it be, let it be

Yeah
Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head down to my toes
I'm a believer

No time to dilly-dally life is moving much too fast
Before we know it what we're doing now will be the past
And if we only knew how much time left we had left to live
We'd stop right in our tracks to turn around
And start to give, start to give, start to give

Yeah

Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head down to my toes
I'm a believer

Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head down to my toes
I'm a believer

We got to live today
'Cause life is moving, baby
Let's take it to the top
No time for being lazy

This is our moment and it is right here before us
Come on and join me on a trip while we explore this

So come on baby
Baby, let's be on our way

Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head right to my toes
I'm a believer

Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head right to my toes
I'm a believer

Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head right to my toes
I'm a believer

Hey, hey
I can feel it in my bones
I'm a believer
Hey, hey
From my head right to my toes
I'm a believer

The Big Picture

by Chief Jeff A. Stricklin


We respond to call every day, we know the chances of it being someone we know, or even that it may be a child.

We will respond, that is our job. Yet we feel this pain inside, when life is lost.

Knowing that we did all that we could, yet wondering, what did we miss.

The calls are sometimes large, and several people are involved.

We get together to talk about what we have seen and what we thought.

We feel better but still not whole.

That takes days and sometimes weeks.

Then we get a call, someone is in trouble.

We do what we are trained to do, life is saved.

Today we understand why we are here, and what our purpose is.

We can't save everyone, but we do make a difference by trying.



The Nameless Firefighter
By Esther "mighty mouse" Rocha

 

becoming a firefighter has always been my dream

but the job is nothing like it seems

a firefighter is always the first one there

to help out another in despair

at the fire house listening for the alarm

prepared to save a person from harm

whether it be approaching a building on fire

telling the engineer to lift the ladder higher

or saving a child from a deadly fall

you can count on a firefighter to give it their all

from four - alarm fires to crushed vehicles

the firefighter almost always create miracles

 

three years ago i was near the light

but a brave firefighter helped me fight

on his way home he witnessed a car flip

it rolled and rolled till it landed in a dip

he pulled over to help because he is a kind man

unlike the others who just turned away and ran

he stayed by my side till the paramedics arrived

if it weren't for him i would have died

he went home and i never learned his name

he just wanted to help he didn't want fame

wherever he may be i want to say thank you

because of you i will make my dream come true


No Greater Love
By: Marie Elaina Gordon

There are police and support groups to make our burdens lighter
But on May 4th, we celebrate the GREATNESS OF THE FIRE FIGHTER!
We honor them and thank them on this very SPECIAL DAY
We thank them for protecting us, while placing their own lives in harms way.

Their thoughts are UNSELFISH, thinking only of the 'other one'
They do not rest - UNTIL WE'RE SAFE - only THEN - is their job DONE.
They are ALWAYS there to help us - ANY DAY OR TIME OF YEAR
For this they are OUR HEROES - for their COURAGE and LACK OF FEAR.

A Fire Fighter is driven - by some SPECIAL FORCE WITHIN.
A secret force that seems to connect ALL these brave men and women.
And just WHAT is this secret force - that 'from us' - sets them apart?
It's found in every Fire Fighter - it's found deep in their heart.

And I believe it's quite simple, as their EVERY ACT OF LOVE unfolds
ONE WORD represents this force that EACH Fire Fighter captures and holds.
It is found very clearly - in a BOOK that GUIDES US TO OUR END……
"No greater LOVE exists - than in one who lays down their life for a FRIEND."


What Happened?

by Angelita Alvarez

What happened is what I ask myself every day?
What was she thinking knowing she'd be putting her life to waste?
This is my sister, and I love her with all my heart,
But doing drugs has only kept us far apart.
I never thought she would end up this way.
It hurts me knowing I can't help her, so all I do is pray,
I pray for her to open her eyes before it's too late.
Dealing drugs and stealing became her hobby,
I guess she doesn't care if her kids end up without a mommy.
Why can't she be the way she was before?
Now that was my sister, the one that always loved me more.
She was my best friend, we were always together,
Nothing ever kept us apart because we promised we'd be sisters forever.
I guess forever finally came to an end.
She doesn't love me anymore now, heroin became her new friend.
I cry every time something reminds me of my sister,
I feel anger and pain inside knowing I can't help her.
But I won't lose faith,
Every night I will pray,
'Cause I know someday God will show her the way.
So now I put this poem to an end and wish only for the best,
I pray it's never my sister who will someday be laid to rest!


I Dream of a Country
Poem by Maxwell Madzikanga

I dream of a country where cows moo in the valleys and sheep bleat in open vlei.
A land where naked children dance with innocence in the rain.
I dream of lush valleys, vegetated forests and fields ripe for harvest.  A land were hearts are unadulterated and pure and interactions rich and life affirming. A land far away  where elders drip with the honey of wisdom. A land where love and peace reign, where the fear of ghosts and nocturnal creatures lurking in the dark sway.
I dream of a land and country where my umbilical code is buried in the darkness of the deep. A land where the dead never die.
I dream of a  land far far away from my grasp. Where dreams are realised and prayers answered in haste.
A land where the innocent hoo hoo cry of an owl in the night sends shivers down the spine of sleeping souls.

I dream of a country!



Broken
by SilentType 

You wanted me to see
how alone you felt
when I wasn't around

It been 38 minutes
with not so much as
a name left to remind
me of your presence

The silence is deafening
and the humming in my ears
is creating so much pressure
in my head I think I may pass
out from the dizziness

My world is spinning
and I only want it to spin
faster in hopes it will cause
me to fall off and drift away
because hitting the ground
can't cause more damage

I'm already too broken



Waiting For A Word
by
Curtis mama jama  

I stood on the mountain
Looking for a word
From the Mighty God of heaven
And He passed by;
in a powerful wind
Scattering and tearing rocks to pebbles
And I became afraid
  not hearing God in the wind
with the wind came an earthquake
Yet I could not feel God while trembling
Then a fire appeared,
 And I felt abandoned; doomed,
But the fire lost its fury
And the ground stopped shaking under me
the wind fell silent,
I listened
And heard the voice of a Mighty God
 Speaking with a soft voice
And fear was no more with me
I knew only love


Winter Steel

Poem by
Dream


Arctic kissed banks
sparkle ice clear
occupying space
with salt and pepper flakes.

Toes in boots sting
ankles deep
crunch slipping
through the pebbled snow.

Gloved hands clench
against razor winds
chilled knees and thighs
steadfastly ignore.

Breath fog enshrouds
wind burned cheeks
cast like red stone
confronting frigidity.

Ahead home beckons
to dull January knives
with heart strong heat
that tempers the frozen.
