To love our God and country too

Those are the things I chose to do.

To furnish aid to those in need

Encourage others to succeed

Grant help to many who deserve

To earn a chance to give and serve.

It’s true our nation must be saved

If we are to escape this grave

Of shattered dreams, distorted facts,

Repeated crimes and heartless acts.

Please rescue us and keep us free

Lest we betray our destiny !

 

 

 

 

OPEN ALL OUR EYES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/20

I often think this plan we’ve made

Needs lots of help, a large band-aid

Like an old game we used to play

To whisk our idle hours away.

Remember this now if you please

When you’re on “Broadway” take your ease

You do not have to go to “jail”

Just whiz on by, do not post bail.

However when you pause on GO

Make ready for the final blow

For life is one great big surprise

It’s meant to open all our eyes !

This world we know is dying fast

It seems that  peace will never last

In truth it cannot ever win

There is no way we can begin.

The die was cast too long ago

There’s no route left to touch or grow

How sad that we have come this far

To barely reach or touch the bar.

We’ll bow our heads in feigned surprise

Since we have caused our own demise !

And so it is that I am tossed

Among the winds and shadows lost !

 

HIS HOLY NAME ( 2017 ) 2017/11/04

There was a child born long ago

It is a story we all know

A sky bathed in celestial light

With one star burning ever bright.

That tiny babe lay mongst the sheep

With angels guarding Him asleep

The heavens knew and marked that place

With holiness time can’t erase.

That baby boy would grow to be

The saviour of humanity

A whole world knows His blessed name

There’s been none else of greater fame !

 

 

DAYS ARE NUMBERED ( 2017 ) 2017/10/26

And so it is each day begins

We are all equal, no one wins

The wheels, they turn and turn again

But who’ll survive remember when ?

The moment comes then fades away

In all of this, who gets to stay

As life continues its short climb

Then faces change time after time ?

Though no one wins in this relay

Existence spans without delay

The days of man all numbered are

And no one ever gets too far !

 

LIGHT YOUR STAR ( 2017 ) 2017/10/10

We know super heroes are not real

Still they do possess this great appeal

To boys and girls either young or old

Loving  the action both brash and bold.

Make-believe can be a lot of fun

Perhaps not a dish for everyone

Let’s make room for reality here

To help us keep pace through every year.

Pretend is not a part of the truth

With which one hopes to imbue our youth

Learning early who you really are

Is the surest way to light your star !
