Once long ago I knew a life

Which proffered me all that it could

As daughter, mother and a wife

In happiness with aspects good

Seems it appears after all that

I find myself left derelict

And wearing an indifferent hat

My days no longer kept that strict !

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 !

Slowly, slowly, as years unwind

What kind of future shall we find,

Where are the endless ways we’ve lost

And who is left to count the cost

Oh foolish ones of no context

Please tell us what will be the next !

 

 

LOSE OUR GOAL ( 2017 ) 2017/04/07

We are a people born to be free

To cherish peace and sweet liberty

Since we  began in seventy-six,

As we fought and died and took our licks

More than two hundred years in the past

A long time now in this world so vast.

We’ve stuck it out and held on so tight

Through coldest days and in darkest night

We’ve fought off each villain we have met

And what this cost we shall not forget

But now the fight’s for our heart and soul

We cannot afford to lose our goal !

 

WIN, LOSE OR BREAK ( 2017 ) 2017/03/01

I can’t imagine what to think

The world we knew is on the brink

The powers that be are paralyzed

Too many here are traumatized.

We’re in a bind and can’t get out

No matter how we rale or shout

So sad that time’s not on our side

When we have issues to decide.

Let’s run our goals on super fast

And pray that God will help it last

We need peace now, make no mistake

Whate’er we do, win, lose or break !

As this old year draws slowly to its close

Unlike the phoenix which from ashes rose

May pass without a hint of shadow kind

To leave its taste of bitterness behind !

 

 

TATTERED SAILS ( 2016 ) 2016/10/31

The truth seems to be put aside

Else fears and lies will soon collide

For who can know the depth of this

Its people caught in self-abyss ?

One wonders why deceit is king

When honesty heals everything

How can it be blindness prevails

While all our ships hoist tattered sails ?
