COUNT THE COST ( 2020 ) 2020/03/10

Rage,  rage  against the coming storm

Its  days  are here before  too long

Look  to the sky,  approaching  morn

Ere  their currents  become too strong.

The  times are changing  oh,  so fast

As  all our values soon  get lost

Into  one role  they  shall be cast

With  no way left  to count the cost  !

 

 

 

WALK GOD’S WAY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/30

Oh  blessed Lord,  I am so sad that I

One  day will soon be forced  to bid goodbye

And  so to leave here with one fond farewell

Hence to the world our sad,  sad story tell.

While  all the dreams  one dares to dream are due

We’re  not without the help and  care from You

We  beg of You to trust each in this way

Thus  join our hands and walk  God’s path today !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A PERFECT FIT ( 2019 ) 2019/12/10

I  waken to the  light  outside

It’s  pale and dull,  on the flat side

The  sun’s smile  has been hid away

By clouds above,  some sad and  grey.

Tomorrow  brings a better  chance

Of  love and joy  mixed with romance,

Our  lives are full of  ups and downs

With happy  smiles and  miles of frowns.

Let’s  spice it up,  just  for a bit

Perhaps,   we’ll  find  a perfect  fit !

 

 

 

 

THE WINDS OF CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/17

The  sun  is rising  in the  sky

To peer o’er roofs  of homes nearby

And  shine a ray of bright  sunlight

To veil the darkness  of each night.

The winds of chance  are more  discreet

As  they blow  change across the  street

And  every single  breath we  breathe

Is  one  more  memory to  leave !

 

 

 

I’LL TAKE A CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/12

I  hear the  whistle on  the  track

It  seems to shout,  come back,  come back

But  I have  been  this way  before

Not  once,  but  twice or maybe more

And  cannot bear  the lonesome sound

Of  emptiness  which  I  have found.

My  bags are packed  all set to go

I’m  ready for  another  show

I  do not have a  backup  plan

And  may  become  an ” also  ran ”

God  with Your  help,  I’ll  take a chance

Tis  time to  try  to learn  to dance !

 

ANOTHER’S LOAD ( 2019 ) 2019/04/09

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 !

 

FIND SOME HAPPY END ( 2019 ) 2019/02/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:37 am

Have we remembered to say “Thank You”

For all of the kindness that You do

And for the blessings that we receive

Like words of wisdom which we believe.

At times this old world is harsh and crude

And by action, arrogant and rude

Somehow folks assume they make the rules

While the balance of us are all fools.

How sad to think that this is the way

That most of our world reacts today

Let us pray that God does comprehend

And helps us to find some happy end !

 

 

 

 

FOOLS LIKE YOU AND ME ( 2019 ) 2019/01/15

Could we but know the history

Of all God’s miracles we see,

That every minute of each day

Are playing out in grand display,

Oh, what a wonder we would learn

For every fraction of life’s turn.

As occurs here before our eyes

This program happens in disguise

The simplest flight of birds on high

Got their direction times gone by

God’s world is perfect as can be

Except for fools like you and me !

Too soon the journey ends my friend

And leaves us much that can’t unbend

To make way for His finest blend

Of all the bliss God’s pleased  to send !

 

BRAND NEW START ( 2018 ) 2018/09/12

The air is still, one feels the heat

This life we know faces defeat

The rule of law used as a pawn

Will disappear before too long

The change will come more silently

As we accept reality

Let’s bow our heads, pray fears depart

And beg of God a brand new start !

 

IT’S NOT TOO LATE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/03

My heart is heavy with the weight

That this world’s lost and in a state

Beyond its condemnation date

Perhaps, dear Lord it’s not too late !

The chance exists we may survive

And keep our hope and dreams alive

Your help and aid would earth revive

As mankind learns once more to thrive !

Oh wayward star where have you been

What kind of world are you lost in

The road is slick, the path is steep

Where is the vision that you seek ?

The night is long and lost in dark

While all about is drear and stark

The mist seeps through the window pane

Engendering a new refrain

Oh Lord, be kind, help us to see

Life’s face of virtuosity !

 

 

CHANGING EVERY DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/07/26

There are so many dreams I’ve had

Some old, some borrowed, some brand new

A few turned out to be quite sad

But there were winners, one or two.

I thank You Lord, for all the luck

And wish my friends much of the same

This effort took most of the pluck

To help save each one in the game.

I know that dreams will never end

Fact is they only fade away

In time, conditions all must blend

While dreams keep changing every day !

 

FIND A SOLUTION ( 2017 ) 2017/12/27

The sun hides now behind the clouds

The winds drift by in friendly crowds

The air is chill with not a thought

To all our issues as it ought.

Our innocence has gotten lost

Because of its ungodly cost

The world prefers to fall behind

Than work to some solution find !

 

WHICH ERA ( 2017 ) 2017/11/10

It’s time for all to stop and think

Our world’s been trembling on the brink

The last thing that we need right now

Is someone else’s sacred cow

Another reason to resist

Or confrontation to exist.

We’re not so very far removed

From where our lives were unimproved

The horse and buggy were our ride

While sanitation was outside

And I’m not sure I can be pressed

To choose which era I like best !

 

SEARCHING ( 2017 ) 2017/10/02

The world we knew,  today becomes the “used to be”

To  leave us with sensations of futility

Times change and fade into this generation lost

Where one can never learn what is the total cost

Farewell to dreamers, writers, artists and their kind

They have a need of safe environments to find !

 

GOD’S COMMAND ( 2017 ) 2017/06/29

The sound rings out on Sunday morn

A peal of bells faint and forlorn

See how it echoes on the air

A calling card for all to share.

Oh how I wish the time were near

Believers everywhere could hear

Sweet freedom ring across the land

A new world under God’s command  !

A joyous song

Let’s try today

To all belong !

 

 

GALOSHES FREE ( 2017 ) 2017/03/10

These winter days keep hanging on

I really thought the cold had gone

How disappointing that it’s not

I gave it all the push I’ve got

And so we’ll have to tough it out

Of this I’m sure, I have no doubt

That spring is knocking at the door

And brings the change we’re waiting for

Oh what a pleasure it will be

When we are all galoshes free !

 

 

 

 

WIN, LOSE OR BREAK ( 2017 ) 2017/03/01

I can’t imagine what to think

The world we knew is on the brink

The powers that be are paralyzed

Too many here are traumatized.

We’re in a bind and can’t get out

No matter how we rale or shout

So sad that time’s not on our side

When we have issues to decide.

Let’s run our goals on super fast

And pray that God will help it last

We need peace now, make no mistake

Whate’er we do, win, lose or break !

A force now rises in the east

To calm the anger of the beast

The winds of change will power divest

And merit fortune in its quest

The time has come, the hour is near

To charm the crowd and vanquish fear !

 

 

THE PAST 2016 2016/10/22

Oh for my life that used to be

When I was young and truly free

With all those passions I did feel

The foolishness and thought unreal.

I spent my life much like a child

Manner sweet and a temper mild

It took a lot for me to pout

I never felt I was left out

How I do wish that I could find

A place to leave the past behind !

 

 

IMPROVEMENT ( 2016 ) 2016/10/20

What kind of day will it be today

I can hear the world at work and play

As noise of construction fills the air

Sirens are blaring fron who knows where.

The buses are rushing, hear the sound

While busy jitneys circle around

I hear the echo of running feet

Clattering rapidly down the street.

Well I guess the day has had its start

And the early rush will soon depart

How I pray each day as I awake

There’s some small improvement I can make !

 

 

 

 

REVISION ( 2016 ) 2016/10/13

There are those thoughts that slip away

Into the realm of yesterday

Deep hidden midst one’s memory

Like moments caught in reverie

At times drawn from the saddened past

To seek those dreams that did not last !

 

NO VICTORY ( 2016 ) 2016/08/09

The leaves of life our stories tell

As all our days with living swell

Though events happen slow or fast

Some may be short while others last.

Each committment we guarantee

Does change our path or set us free

Times are troubled and full of woe

And with the seasons seem to grow,

There is no answer clear or sweet

That shouts aloud win or defeat !

 

 

ABOUT TO BUST ( 2016 ) 2016/05/01

When I was small I used to play

In my front yard ‘most every day

My mother did not preach to me

That strangers were the enemy.

Now that was ever long ago

When folks about were kind you know

Our values were so different then

Doors were not locked but kept open.

We’ve lost our innocence I think

It seems we’re trembling on the brink

Of this sad world about to bust

For lack of faith or hope or trust !

 

STAY OR GO ( 2016 ) 2016/04/15

I press my nose upon the glass

And pray to God this storm will pass

We have been waiting ever long

The night moves on, the wind is strong !

When I was young I loved the sound

Of howling winds blown round and round

It made me think of Sherlock Holmes

Those scary stories, eerie poems

The moors, a place of mystery

And home to curiosity

I fantasized about Heathcliff

And often thought, oh my, what if ?

My life’s been full of books and things

They filled my days with fairy wings,

Now I am old, too old to fear

If life and death are moving near

And so tonite brash winds may blow

What changes if I stay or go ?

 

HOW FAR ( 2016 ) 2016/02/08

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:03 am

Sometimes I fear I cannot bear

The lonliness of life’s despair

I see the children on the street

Their vacant eyes dimmed by defeat.

Compared to those of long ago

When ambition was clear to show

With spunk and guts they vanquished fear

While spirits channeled strength and cheer.

They did not cower in some cave

But learned how proper folk behave

They mimicked those who came before

They worked and saved and worked some more.

They learned the language, customs too

Embraced the challenges they knew

And in the end their courage won

Look now to see how far they’ve come !
