Ler’s close the door and move on up

Tis time to taste another cup

We need to give peace one more try

And take a chance before goodbye.

Like all the options we have had

To choose between the good and bad

Let’s opt for dreams that might come true

And grant to all a better view

Of what God wants our lives to be

Full of both love and charity !

The thoughts that gather round my brain

I struggle hard to keep contained

Because I wish to use the best

To help me try to ace God’s test.

I see how this world writhes in pain

Without some effort, there’s no gain

If God inspires our every act

Perhaps we’ll learn to honor fact !

Well here we are, believing what

With all this detail we have got ?

There are too many who will say

There is no God, not here today.


I can’t recall who said it first

But I am sure their bubble’s burst.

Just look around what do you see

A world that needs God’s charity !

A little care, a little love

What is it we are dreaming of

A little hope tinged with a smile

Will carry us for quite awhile.

The way is long, the road is steep

We have a rendez-vous to keep

There are those jobs that we must do

With obstacles we need get through.

To aid the lost their strength to find

The weary to seek peace of mind

And help the indigent ensure

A future with their lives secure !

Now who am I to ask for more

As though I have not done before

A child of God with absent thought

That in life’s web I find I’m caught.

Please teach me how to humble be

And live with self humility

To find a place where I belong

That swells with peace and love and song !

There are no words one chance may say

That work to melt the pain away

True, words are meant to help us cope

Once truth has gone, there’s only hope.

Perhaps hope stretches with each smile

And keeps one safe a little while

Perhaps a prayer, perhaps a few

Will garner strength to follow through.

Keep dreaming of God’s charity

Whate’er we need, it’s there, it’s free !



THE ROAD ( 2015 ) 2015/03/02

This road that I have chosen is lonely cold and dark

The path that I now follow is truly bare and stark

There’s no other option either here or on the way

Once the journey has begun the rule is you must stay.

It’s taken up too much time this is my foolish choice

Lord, I beg You walk with me I know You’ve heard my voice

I’ve made my share of errors I’m sure You’ve watched me fall

I ask for Your forgiveness I’ve been ashamed to call.

But that’s all over now I cannot change what is done

I simply need to finish this task I have begun !
