I feel the fury of the wind

That keeps on squealing, ” let me in ”

I hear the angry sounds that shout

I do not know what it’s about,

But I am not some trembling vine

Who operates without a spine

I’ve been around the block too long

You’ll note that I’m not weak but strong !

I hear the sound of distant drums

Too soon the problem this way comes

Let’s gird our loins and standup tall

We’ll brace our backs against the wall.

Too late we learn there’s no redress

It’s not that easy, I confess

Tis better far to peaceful be

And smoke the pipe to victory !

There is no way I understand

How tempers get so out of hand

I’ve never seen such anger shown

From persons both known and unknown

What is there that can rile one up

Enough to overflow the cup ?

We’ve seen the foolishness of some

Who cannot seem to overcome

This sad behavior they have used

On those they’ve bullied or abused

Perhaps through faith and time alone

They’ll seek God’s wisdom to atone !

 

SAVE OUR LAND ( 2017 ) 2017/07/05

The drums of war beat hard and loud

All occasioned by an ugly crowd

No patriots to save the day

All in the hands of men who pay

Oh precious Lord, please hear our plea

And save our land from infamy !

 

 

MAKE WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/11

I have been taught my whole life long

To love my God and to be strong

To help my neighbors and my friends

To pray for peace and make amends.

Yet still I find the world I see

Is rife with much hostility

The days grow old, deep in morass

When will some of this anger pass ?

In all our lives we find no peace

When will God grant our soul’s release,

I don’t know how to fight the beast

Help us, oh Lord, make wars to cease !

 

 

 

 

 

RELEASE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/27

The infamy of events gone by

Those scenes of the past that made us cry

The tearful times no one will forget

Sad memories that do haunt us yet

These are the shadows of all we hate

That we’ve learned to fear but much too late.

These agonies fail to go away

Increasing more with each passing day

Oh when, oh when will this madness end

Oh where, oh where does the blame depend

May the Lord above help us find peace

And from this anger grant our release !

 

 

 

 

SHILOH ( 2016 ) 2016/07/04

The battleground of Shiloh has fields of missing and of dead

Where many nameless small white crosses lineup from head to head

A place where ten thousand died as through the heart this nation tore

While Shiloh from the bible came with His message, peace not war

And was the home of God’s own ark and His holy covenant

That from the Lord to us our peace and true happiness was sent !
