It doesn’t make much sense to me

To claim some bogus victory

Or just pretend that who you are

Is so important by much far

Who cares if one’s the simpler sort

If complications count for nought.

I’d rather be a bird on wing

Who joins his species in birdsing

Than stand upon a mighty stage

With those who are the latest rage.

They curry favor all life long

By singing out song after song,

Instead of praising God the King

Who has created everything !

 

 

 

BY STYLE OR DRESS ( 2017 ) 2017/10/15

We search and search most everywhere

To seek some peace we all may share

There is no safety chaos brings

More joy is found in circus rings.

The labyrinth of life goes on

According to the airs we don

For when we’re done each must confess

One won’t be judged by style or dress !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

 

 

CURTAIN CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/13

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

 

 

YOU WIN ( 2017 ) 2017/10/12

I thank you Lord, day after day

Your word does guide me on my way

I’m sure that You refill my cup

And when I fall You pick me up.

You’ve been my Friend a long, long time

Since I could stand or walk or climb

I never would have made it through

Without the help I’ve had from You.

I promise You, dear Lord, today

Small matter what the world may say

There are no doubts about who’s Boss

In any game You win the toss !

 

 

WILL WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/11

I’ve often wondered why it’s so

That sadness follows where we go

And life is never thought complete

Without these stories of defeat

Or why we rally to the cause

Of infidels and unjust wars

And so the cycle carries on

When will all wars cease and be gone ?

 

 

LIGHT YOUR STAR ( 2017 ) 2017/10/10

We know super heroes are not real

Still they do possess this great appeal

To boys and girls either young or old

Loving  the action both brash and bold.

Make-believe can be a lot of fun

Perhaps not a dish for everyone

Let’s make room for reality here

To help us keep pace through every year.

Pretend is not a part of the truth

With which one hopes to imbue our youth

Learning early who you really are

Is the surest way to light your star !
