Oh how I wish that I might find

A path that’s safe and does not wind

The straightest road without a curve

Is more a choice than I deserve

For narrow as the options be

It is the route that pleases me !

Oh dearest Lord, please hear my plea

Create a stronger need in me

Help me to learn a kinder way

To face the challenge of each day !

 

ICONOCLAST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/19

So many children do not play

So many dreams have gone astray

While many values have been trashed

Too many idols now are bashed.

We live in times too tough to bear

There seems no kindness left to share

Our world is dying bit by bit

And everyone is part of it.

Dark clouds are gathering above

Obscuring all our acts of love

Hold on, hold on, the die is cast

Let’s welcome the iconoclast !

 

 

 

 

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN ( 2017 ) 2017/08/18

Her mountains rose up from the sea

While sunshine showed her true glory

Her rivers flowed upon this earth

The nation prospered for its worth.

Her people stood there by her side

They lived and fought and too soon died

The grandest place this world has seen

The saddest words “what might have been ” !

I hear the sound of marching feet

Parading down lengths of main street

I heard the voice of those who died

With their last breath, they gave us pride.

The earth ran red with their lost blood

The tears they cried were like a flood

One cannot know what they would feel

Or understand there’s nothing real !

The steeple bells ring loud and clear

Another Sunday morning’s here

Let’s raise our voices in a song

To show our Lord we do belong.

The choir sings its chosen hymn

With words of glory lauding Him

Please, God on high, rejoice with us

That we may share the Glorious !

 

 

A CORNER JUST FOR ME ( 2017 ) 2017/08/15

My heart is in the heavens, knocking at His door

I pray that God will hear me as He did before

And when my life is done and I have been set free

I pray that He will find a corner just for me!
