Sources of Inspiration

Inspiration can be found most anywhere
Yes, sources of inspiration are always there
People, nature, things concrete and abstract
both standing alone and in the way they interact

When I see people who survive against all odds
When I see how seeds have turned into flower buds
When I see fresh water glittering in the sea
They're all great sources of inspiration to me

Human and animal babies striving to learn and grow
they're great inspirations and make my heart overflow
The people and the flowers fighting to beat hard times
they're great inspirations that touch me and affect my life

The wind that can blow in so many different ways
It inspires and teaches a lot if we listen to what it says
Everyone who dares to somehow go against cold winds
they inspire me as they stand tall and win

Yes look around and inspiration is everywhere
just pause and see, you'll find that it is always there
Things great and small in life, they can all inspire me
I know it's the same for you, you just learn to pause and see!

The Things That Inspire Me

As I go from day to day
Often go unobserved
By others on the way.

The parents of a sick child,
Who struggle and yet go on,
Wanting only what is best
For their daughter or their son.

The children who are caring
For aging parents who are ill,
Who now depend on them
Their empty lives to fill.

Those who work with Street Kids
Who join them in the gutter,
Listening to their story
And not a complaint do they utter.

The twenty four hour Career
For whom there is no respite,
No rest for them from weary chores
Yet they go on with the fight.

Those who feed the hungry,
Who also clothe and feed,
The victims of a violence
Which leaves such great need.

Those who nurse the sick
With a tender gentle touch,
Knowing that kind and caring hands
Matter very much.

Sunrises and sunsets inspire me,
As do majestic mountain views,
The river as she rushes by,
Flowers in pinks and blues.

But it is the people who inspire me
With their courage and their strength,
The fact that when challenged
They will go to any length.

They often put their lives on hold
To cherish and to care,
They live in ordinary houses
In cities everywhere.

They are ordinary people
Showing extraordinary care,
With a quiet sense of dignity
We see them everywhere.

Life's Inspirations

There is so many things that inspire me
The mountains, the stars, the roar of the sea.
The sun as it sets, in all its beauty.
These are some things that inspire me.

But life isn't just about nature's beauty
There is something else that inspires me.
The love of my friends and my family
These are the people that inspire me.

No matter what I do, they always love me
For what I am and for what I can be.
They see in me what no one else sees
And they'll have my love for eternity.

The love of my friends and family,
Is what in life, inspires me.
To see in life what's real beauty
Is to give and get love unconditionally.
