The rain it tumbles to the ground

There’s not a dry spot to be found

The wind it whips among the trees

Embracing  all the sodden leaves

The morning’s light turns into dark

The air about is still and stark

While clouds do pass and fade away

In  their  circuitous  display,

The seasons change from day to night

Without a  single goal  in sight

How simple all our lives could  be

Accepting  God’s equality !

 

 

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 !

I try so  very hard to see

The value of equality

But I have learned quite recently

That some are equal more than me !

 

FREEDOM’S FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/26

Oh would that we might see beyond

The hills, the plains, the mirrored pond

The mountains, lakes and flowing streams

That are the image of our dreams.

The valleys and the oceans wide

These are the pulse of pilgrims’ pride

And of this nation which exists

In spite of danger that persists.

While enemies near and afar

Diminish every brilliant star

Hoping to hide the shining light

That has become our freedom’s fight !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MY TASK ( 2013 ) 2013/09/21

What job is there that we must do

Before our turn in life is through ?

A gentle thought a kindly word

No anger sought no plea unheard

One simple wish to understand

Be there to lend a helping hand.

Remember that we’re all the same

Except in color, size and name.

But underneath we bleed alike

From head of state to smallest tyke !

 

THE ENDING ( 2013 ) 2013/08/14

It surprises me to a great extent

When I have queried where my lifetime went

And cannot seem to remember the space

That last I was or the name of the place.

As I grow older I will not recall

So much of the sadness that did befall

In a journey long full of tears and joys

It’s the happiness that my mind employs

And the peaceful times we were not alone

Those we shared with God in the great unknown

Knowing the ending’s the same for us all

As we clap our hands at the curtains fall !
