THE WEB ( 2020 ) 2020/06/29

Too  often  I  have  had  the  thought

That  in  a  vicious  web  we’re  caught

Our  world,  tis  true,  is  upside  down

And  turned  our  smiles  into  a  frown,

How  shall  we  get  our  laughter  back

We  need  to  find  the  proper  track.

The  madness  grows  day  after  day

Why  can’t  we  filch  its  power away,

Perhaps  we’ll  have to  wait  in  line

To  learn  if  this  will  turn  out  fine  !

 

 

REGRET ( 2020 ) 2020/06/15

A  simple  thought  just  for  today

That  we  mean  everything  we  say

The  truth  is  what  this  world’s  about

Because  of  this  we  have  no  doubt.

The  lies  are  but  another  ploy

Of  all  the  tricks  humans  employ

To  twist  and  turn  each  form  of  strife

Into  an  enemy  for  life.

How  sad  that  we  perchance  forget

Too  many  days spent  in regret  !

 

 

 

 

STRIFE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/05

This  world  today  is upside  down

As  chaos  roams  from  town  to  town

All  citizens  may  suffer  so

The  enemy  will  not  let  go.

How  sad if  we  should  lose  control

Of  all our  dreams  and  of  each  goal

We’ve  come  too far  to  just  give  up

And  swallow  lies  from  Satan’s  cup.

Where  is  the truth  that  must  be  told

This  hatred  now  has grown  too old

We’re  all  so   tired  of  the strife

God   help  us  to  regain  our  life !

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHALLENGE ( 2020 ) 2020/05/29

Where is the caution that we need

Like all the rules that we must heed

What’s happened to our sanity

Now drowning in profanity ?

Take care, my dear, we’ve just begun

The journey’s long and void of fun

Make sure that you do not lose sight

Of all the tremors of the night.

Remember when the fog rolls in

That each accepts his own chagrin

There is no cover one may choose

The answer is we all do lose !

 

CLUTCH OF FEAR (2020) 2020/05/28

There is this sadness in my heart

That years ago had its small start

When I was young and chose to be

The backbone of my family.

Though times were hard and cupboards bare

Our crippled world was forced to share

We wasted not nor did we slack

But strove to take our nation back.

Who thought that we would once again

Return to those ” remember when ” ?

Oh Blessed Lord, be with us here

To save us from this clutch of fear !

 

FAIR PLAY ( 2020 ) 2020/03/30

Tis sad the problem we now face

As members of the human race

The pestilence has taken hold

Of world wide fear, exceeding bold

To cover all the good and kind

That we’d the power here to find.

So simple when we understand

That life is ruled by God’s command

Accept His judgement every day

His sense of justice and fair play !

 

REVERSE GEAR ( 2020 ) 2020/03/15

How  often is  it that we think

This  world of ours  is on the brink

That  maybe we’ll  fall off  the  ledge

Or  slip as  we sit on the edge

I’m  truly  stuck in reverse  gear

What happens  next can  hold no fear !

 

INSANITY ( 2019 ) 2019/08/02

The fury rages overhead

Encouraging chaos instead

How long will their insanity

Assault this homeland of the free ?

 

SLIPPING AWAY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:23 am
Tags: , , , , ,

It seems  my life is  slipping  away

The  pull gets stronger  day after day

How  shall one  decide  which  way to go

Is there  a clue we  have need  to know

What  has  happened  to  ” home  of the  free ”

An  example  of  true  liberty ?

The chaos that  reigns  over our land

That used  to be this  nation  so grand

Became a  faction we  have  to chase

Hard  as we  may to change or  erase

Whatever  prayers that  need to  be said

Do say  them now  before we  are dead !

 

THE GAME OF POLITICS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:39 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a small refuge one may find

To grant us all  some peace of mind

The sight  observed is  disarrayed

Too many games are  being played.

While  all those values that we’ve known

By winds of  change are  being blown

Who can be  sure our  world survives

This  challenge now as it  revives ?

 

 

OUR FRONT DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/05/03

The dawn’s slow rolling o’er the hill

The air is tense, silent and still

This scene is quiet, fast asleep

While we’ve this mission we need keep

The world about is tossed amiss

And chaos rules instead of bliss

When will this peace we’re searching for

Arrive at last at our front door ?

 

 

WHAT IS TO COME ( 2019 ) 2019/04/11

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 !

 

 

SADNESS SHOWS ( 2017 ) 2017/10/08

Seems every morning sadness shows

Around the world the bad news flows

The madness strikes it grows and grows

From tippy-top to tiny-toes !

 

TIS JUST THE FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/08/29

Our world is really in a mess

Growing much worse I must confess

Seems someone, though we don’t know who,

Has played his dirty trick or two

And left us all in one great bind

For some solution we must find.

We’re upside down and downside out

We’ve lost our strength and have no clout

So buckle up and gather strength

We need to go to any length

If we’re to win this bloody war

Tis just the fight we’re ready for !

 

TROUBLE FREE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/15

The fog creeps in so silently

It slowly rises from the sea

The air is still with ne’er a breeze

There is no rustle in the trees.

I feel a chill upon my skin

What kind of chaos are we in

I cannot see in front of me

When will our world be trouble free ?

 

TRIUMPH O’ER DEFEAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/14

This world is crashing all around

Please tell us if you hear the sound

The thunder roars above our head

We cannot hear what e’er’s been said

There still is time left to escape

We need locate our hero’s cape.

Oh Lord we seek some help down here

The path ahead looms dark and drear

Please send us aid on winged feet

So we may triumph  o’er defeat !

 

MORASS ( 2016 ) 2016/11/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:27 am
Tags: , , , , ,

One simple thought occurs to me

That nothing in our lives is free

We pay the price there is no choice

The time is here to raise our voice.

Sound the alarm, call in the guard

It’s sure correct to fence the yard

Prepare ourselves for the onslaught

In this morass we can’t be caught !

 

SHOW ME THE WAY ( 2016 ) 2016/07/10

At times the pain is so intense

That even tears are no defense

I want to run or fly away

When all my prayers can’t save the day

I do not see how else to live

And need your help to please forgive

Those days that I have thought to die

Before my time to bid goodbye.

I know that there is more to say

Please guide me Lord, show me the way !

 

 

BEREFT ( 2016 ) 2016/05/28

I’ve seen the troops in battle dress

They make me proud I must confess

I wish they were but dressing-up

To partake of sweet valour’s  cup

Instead of battling someone’s cause

While fighting in these futile wars.

There is no break nor any end

The fracas leaves no untouched friend

There’s no peace found to fill the air

We’ve only distress everywhere.

The saddest part we must accept

We’ve done our job and are bereft !

 

 

FAILURE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/19

A gasp, a sigh, some sign of life

Those battle scars after the strife

A dusty road strewn with debris

A shattered world is left to see

The sadness lingers on it seems

The vanquished have forgot their dreams !

Oh power that rules, attend us please

Our old world is trembling on its knees

The mountains rumble the waters surge

All seem to be begging for a purge,

The woodlands burn with a heat intense

Where is the force of our own defense ?

This world in chaos appears to be

What’s left to us of civility

Open your eyes it is not too late

To challenge the demons at the gate !

 

SHOW US THE WAY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/03

Sometimes our lives just melt away

Where have they gone, we cannot say

Tis like a wind across the sands

That garners strength, makes no demands.

One moment here, another there

Perhaps unsafe, sometimes unfair

Oh Lord, please help us day to day

Show us the way we need to pray !

I am a saddened stranger lost

Here in this world so tempest-tossed,

Its fury which does much abound

Leaves none unscathed upon the ground.

It rages through this honeycomb

Of life that is to peace unknown

Oh Lord, be kind let calm abide

There’s no place left for us to hide !

 

I REMEMBER ( 2015 ) 2015/02/26

I have seen the Magic Mountain

And embraced its snowy peaks

I have washed in Trevi’s Fountain

And have strolled her busy streets.

I have eaten in the Plaza

Where Bernadette met her Saint

And meandered through the vista

Where Monet did sit and paint.

I have been to London’s Tower

Where Anne Boleyn lost her head

And tred the hills of Gettysburg

Where fields are full of the dead.

I stood and watched the eastern sky

When the Challenger came down

And since that day I’ve wondered why

I still tremble with that sound.

But most of all I remember

Back when I was still a child

The seventh day of December

When all of the world went wild !

I wonder what to look for next

Will it be twitter, tweet or text

Or all the rallies in the streets

With slogans that the crowd repeats

Reminding me of scenes I’ve seen

From Planet of the Apes on screen.

What future will be left for us

If we escape this wild circus

I think that I begin to see

This is the new reality !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE MADNESS GROWS ( 2014 ) 2014/11/25

The muffled sounds rise from the street

Loud voices raised midst running feet

Mankind has truly lost its way

How shall the children learn to play ?

What kind of anger fills the air

What would you do if you were there ?

There is a God who sees all clearly

Time is come we shall pay dearly

The truth of all it makes no sense

Trust in God’s law our last defense !

Here’s to the vets of every war

What was it they were fighting for

These valiant souls who fought and died

They stood alone or side by side,

For war is such an ugly thing

We’ve seen the sadness it can bring

The victor tastes both death and pain

While those who lose have fought in vain !

Now turn around and search about

There is some way to figure out

Chaos must end ere it’s too late

Or we will share the selfsame fate !

My heart feels tight, my brain is numb

I cannot speak, I’m overcome

The winds rush by, I feel confined

It seems as though I’ve lost my mind !

The weather breaks, the dawn’s arrived

The sun is here, my world survived

The storm has passed, we’ll be okay

And guaranteed another day.

There’s passion in all natures schemes

Some are nightmares but some are dreams !
