It seems our nation’s drowning fast

The world at large appears aghast

Oh, tell us please what can we do

To save ourselves and cleave to You ?

Our time is slipping past too soon

The path ahead leads but to ruin

Let’s say a prayer that this won’t be

Another page in history !

How can we silence all the din

This world we know does wallow in

Those voices raised in angry hate

All chiming in at this late date.

Where were you when the need was most

All empty words and hollow boast

Or shouting threats that we should fear

God’s holocaust will soon be here !

There’s not a day that passes by

When each one’s dream may bid goodbye

There’s not  a night without a star

Reminding us how near or far

The journey of our lives will be

In terms of our expectancy.

For we are here a short time all

Without control o’er win or fall

It is the Master of our fate

Who knows our exit and its date !

Tis strange there is no rest at all

For those who stumble or who fall

Or those who’ve willed their lifetime call

To carry someone else’s ball !

Life is not strange nor is it cruel

It violates no golden rule

For in most seasons, young or old

The fields are plowed or bought or sold.

Some lie fallow while some are green

Others produce to the obscene

No two alike that is God’s way

As each creates his own display !

 

 

I MISS MY FRIEND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/07

Before I entered in life’s maze

I’d been alive a thousand days

I walked and talked and learned to sing

Good manners came with everything.

My mother,  she was but sixteen

Had never been a high school queen

She was my best friend my whole life

Through happy days and those of strife.

The hard times came, then went away

But left the scars of yesterday

Sometimes when I do quiet sit

Those memories may be relit.

I’ve often wondered how we did

When daddy died, I was a kid

Today the days just seem to fly

I must learn now to say goodbye !

 

 

HE IS NOT BLIND ( 2019 ) 2019/04/06

Good morning world, I’ve come to say

The Lord gives us another day

A day to do what e’er we choose

A day to win, a day to lose.

And if we’re smart we’ll use it well

That others may His story tell

And so it moves us closer to

His day of judgement tried and true.

It matters much our real intent

Like how our wisdom has been spent

And have helped our fellow man

The best as many of us can.

Our God is fair, unerring kind

But to our faults He is not blind !
