'Tis very times like these whence we need unity. Our countries fight wars for lands and territories. Why do we not cease and fight for what's right in our heart instead of what's right in our eyes.'
- Theo Williams
'Why not instead of warring o'er difference, embrace the gift. Respect all values and beliefs 'cause this is what makes you, you. For if we were all the same and looked in a mirror, we would hate what we'd see.'
- Theo Williams
'You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on Earth.'

Theo Williams Poems
He sat there in the streaming light, Silent, settled like the darkened night. Rays channelled through the greys of ancient gloom, Purifying his soul, natural hues of the moon.
Sounds of singing birds so early in the morn Is a beauty in life that no one can adorn. Soothing peace of waves gently caressing the sand
The chirp of birds in the early morning Bless my smiles with their innocent calling I head outside with my blanket wrapped around And lay there listening to this memorable sound.
I Do Love You
Baby we're the perfect two, there's no complication. The only mathematics we need is me plus you it's the perfect equation. But when we're in science we create a chemical reaction. Ten out of Ten is our love expressed as a fraction.
This Sea Of Tears
This sea of tears is a vast wasteland That a maiden burdens with an imprinted hand Creating swells and blustery typhoons Breaking the core of the harvest moon
The sun sets on the horizon from the distant land, Where birds chirp and couples lay hand in hand. I look at the sun to say goodbye, To the beautiful colours that paint the sky.
Imagine that there is no heaven Above us only a sky Imagine that there is no religion To create controversy and lies.
The Deceptive Eye
Eyes are the windows to each and every soul That articulates a story in every perspective Seeping when sad and tightened when angry But can lie to us ‘cause they're deceptive.
The Garden's Secret
The secret garden is a special place That is close to my heart It washes away yesterday's sorrow As I watch the new day start.
The World We Created
Broken bottles everywhere with plastic bags Charred pieces of glass with boxes and fags Ripping out plants and tearing down trees. Is this the beautiful environment surrounding me?
You Are My Sunrise
The sun is smiling as I open my eyes Birds serenading the awoken sky. I watch from my window the sun climbing a hill Spreading its glimmer so beautiful.
I climbed atop the highest mountain And heard what sounded like a whisper I looked and looked but could not sight a soul The wind whistled and spake unto me.
My Gift To You
When the towers fell on September eleven Countless souls were sent to heaven Left families scarred and destroyed For this nightmare had been employed.
The Pieces Of My Heart
I was walking this lonely wilderness And then I met you I had no intention of falling ‘Cause my heart's pieces, were but a few.

He sat there in the streaming light,
Silent, settled like the darkened night.
Rays channelled through the greys of ancient gloom,
Purifying his soul, natural hues of the moon.
But the lonely air of the night, began to squall,
His lonely life doth take its toll.
Flickers of darkness enthral his thoughts,
By which his mind will be mentally caught.
Darkness will soon swallow him from inside,
In conjunction with loneliness, they will abandon his pride.
The bright white of the moon, will be the last thing he sees,
As he pleads to the lord, to set him ...
