Our aims got tangled and went adrift

The spirit’s drowning and needs a lift

While our dreams have somehow gone astray

Pray this confusion soon melts away.

At the root of all that we believe

And a part of ideas we conceive

May the love of God instill great peace

And from life’s distress grant all release !

Have you seen smiles upon each face

Of winners who complete the race

It’s not about their speed or pace

But difficulties they’ve embraced !

There is one comment I have heard

About God’s Truth and Holy Word

It is the garment we should wear

The word of saints and those who care.

I love to amble through His Book

We need to take a deeper look

There’s not an issue left behind

It answers all and every kind.

I wish this world could take a break

And finally decision make

That God alone is what we need

To keep our faith and justice heed !

Sunshine is the gladness that sweetens every day

Rain is the cleansing mist that washes grief away !

Too many words are left unsaid

And rattle round inside our head

Too many schemes have flown away

While ambitions went fast astray.

Where are the dreamers that we knew

With vision bold like me and you,

As peace and joy by love possessed

May fill our lives with hope and zest !

 

THEY FOUGHT AND DIED ( 2018 ) 2018/05/28

There is this call that I now hear

It happens every time each year

The bells peal out and my heart cries

Takes all my strength to face goodbyes !

There is no way I can convey

The sadness that I feel this day

So many wars for all those boys

Who early left their childhood toys

To wear that uniform each chose

Before their lives came to a close.

So be it blue or white or green

Brown, khaki, tan or in between

Whatever color works for you

They fought and died, red, white and blue !

The stage is set, the curtain waits

With ticket takers at each gate

The script’s been writ,  face-paint applied

While tension grows from deep inside.

Time for the truth to come on out

With neither whimper nor a shout

The simple facts are really best

Let’s leave the judgement to the rest !
