Stagnated Mentality - Wasted Resource

Stagnate minds refusing to learn
Stifling evolution with no concern
Blissful ignorance leads the way
Hopeless hopes, hope and pray

Closing eyes to the warning sign
Festering in time, inclined to be blind
Do some research, read a book
Meditate on life with a fresh new look

For not heeding the enlightened voice
Despair, the reward for such a choice
Wisdom, always a rewarding sensation
Never experienced by mental stagnation

And find it was instilled in early youth

Faith in Belief - Coping Strategy

Must have faith or what else is left?
Lack of faith, sorrow bereft
Belief in a God, nature, galactic deities
Even atheistic belief gives some amenities

Belief in self to succeed
The need to daily feed
Belief in love, seeking to thrive
Faith in thriving to stay alive

Those with no faith to look forward to
Stranded, without a helping clue
Grasp a belief enabling you to cope
One that brings fulfillment with hope

Faith in music unbound
Open ears to the acoustic sound
Sweet rhythms renowned
Belief that art opens the way
Creative devotion bless the day
