There is a door that opens wide

To reveal secrets deep inside

Within life’s labyrinth of fears

Close to a hydrant full of tears.

This battle which abides within

Determines if we lose or win

As God alone does aid our choice

So each may choose silence or voice !

There is a choice that one must make

About the path that each shall take

And of the road that lies ahead

With twists and gaps and bumps instead.

Our trail through life is seldom smoothed

It’s crammed with ruts and slightly grooved

Where we who struggle on alone

Will stumble o’er both rock and stone.

Tis best remembering to swerve

When we approach curve uopn curve

This course we’ve taken is intense

But God’s our Help and our Defense !

My dearest child what can I say

To get you through your darkest day,

Which words of peace may I impart

To help you ease your aching heart ?

With all the love time mayhaps bring

Like joyous songs we learn to sing,

The word of God is what we’ve got

To keep us safe, no matter what !

 

TO SUCCEED ( 2018 ) 2018/01/14

There is one joy each day may bring

Your choice to laugh or dance and sing

To smile, enjoy or to correct

Some error made  or to expect

Perhaps a chance to walk with God

And tread the path our forebears trod.

To share a bit of helping hand

Pick up the pieces or expand

Then comprehend the value of

Undaunted courage laced with love

A time to aid when there is need

Or teach another to succeed !

 

 

 

 

IT’S POSSIBLE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/26

What is it that life offers all

The chance to shape what may befall

A hope to curb our every whim

Control those steps outside the rim

To spend our days pursueing peace

And from all powers find our release

For somehow time gets in the way

When love does steal the heart away !

 

USE YOUR VOICE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/03

Let us not make waste of all our days

By holding on to life’s former ways

Let us lift our heads and hearts besides

To stem the crush and the flood of tides.

Let’s make an effort to strive once more

To welcome the Lord through our front door

Time has come for us to make a choice

Stand up for faith, start using your voice !

 

 

SET US FREE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/24

The shifting sands of life do blow

Across our vision wide and slow

And changes all the views we see

As we seek out God’s harmony.

The winds of time have come and gone

And left our dreams both pale and wan

Escape, escape, that cannot be

For none but death shall set us free !
