Dreams: Langston Hughes

 

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken- winged bird

That cannot fly.

 

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

sorry this isnt poetry but i thought was always nice to know

 

For instance, all those who sinned without law will also perish without law;+ but all those who sinned under law+ will be judged by law.+ 13  For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God, but the doers+ of law will be declared righteous.+ 14  For whenever people of the nations+ that do not have law+ do by nature the things of the law,+ these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves. 15  They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts,+ while their conscience+ is bearing witness with them and, between their own thoughts, they are being accused+ or even excused. 16  This will be in the day when God through Christ Jesus judges+ the secret+ things of mankind,+ according to the good news I declare.+17  If, now, you are a Jew in name+ and are resting upon law+and taking pride in God,+ 18  and you know his will+ and approve of things that are excellent* because you are orally instructed out of the Law;+ 19  and you are persuaded that you are a guide of the blind,+ a light for those in darkness,+ 20  a corrector of the unreasonable ones,+ a teacher of babes,+ and having the framework*+ of the knowledge and of the truth+ in the Law— 21  do you, however, the one teaching someone else, not teach yourself?+ You, the one preaching “Do not steal,”+ do you steal?+ 22  You, the one saying “Do not commit adultery,”*+do you commit adultery? You, the one expressing abhorrence of the idols, do you rob+ temples? 23  You, who take pride in law, do you by your transgressing of the Law+ dishonor God? 24  For “the name of God is being blasphemed on account of YOU people among the nations”;+ just as it is written.25  Circumcision+ is, in fact, of benefit only if you practice law;+ but if you are a transgressor of law, your circumcision+ has become uncircumcision.+ 26  If, therefore, an uncircumcised+person keeps the righteous requirements+ of the Law, his uncircumcision will be counted as circumcision, will it not?+27  And the uncircumcised [person] that is such by nature will, by carrying out the Law, judge you+ who with its written code and circumcision are a transgressor of law. 28  For he is not a Jew who is one on the outside,+ nor is circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh.+ 29  But he is a Jew who is one on the inside,+ and [his] circumcision is that of the heart+ by spirit, and not by a written code.+ {{{The praise+ of that one comes, not from men, but from God}}}+

 Tom Sawyer:Rush

 

A modern day warrior

mean, mean stride

today's Tom Sawyer

 mean, mean pride

 

though his mind is not for rent

don't put him down as arrogant

his reserve, a quiet defense

riding out the days events

        the river

What you say about his company

is what you say about society

catch the mist, catch the myth

catch the mystery, catch the drift

 

the world is, the world is

life and love are deep

maybe as his sky's are wide

 

 today's Tom Sawyer

he get's high on you

and the space he invades

he gets by on you

 

no his mind is not for rent

to any "dog" or government

always hopeful, yet discontent

he knows changes aren't permanent

but change is

 

what you say about his company

is what you say about society

catch the witness, catch the wit

catch the spirit, catch the spit

 

the world is the world is

love and life are deep

maybe as his eyes are wide

 

Exit the warrior

today's Tom Sawyer

he gets high on you

and the energy you trade

he gets right on to the friction of the day

Movement of the common man: Styx

 

Another day takes upon you

a fan fare wakes the land

the naked lives just a shining down

at the dawn of the common man

 

Outside in the madding crowd

he laughs along the way

traffic city, what a pity

it doesn't have a word to say

 

troubled people, billions of people

they can't seem to understand

their ringing ears are unable to hear

the sounds of the natural plan

 

yeah yeah yeah yeah

1st Corinthians 13, 4-8

 

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It doesn't dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres,

Love never fails.

But where there are prophesies; they will cease, where there are tongues, they will be stilled, where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
