It seems  my life is  slipping  away

The  pull gets stronger  day after day

How  shall one  decide  which  way to go

Is there  a clue we  have need  to know

What  has  happened  to  ” home  of the  free ”

An  example  of  true  liberty ?

The chaos that  reigns  over our land

That used  to be this  nation  so grand

Became a  faction we  have  to chase

Hard  as we  may to change or  erase

Whatever  prayers that  need to  be said

Do say  them now  before we  are dead !

Sometimes I waken in the night

To find there’s no one else in sight

And I am torn to ponder why

The bright lit stars desert the sky

Or why the valleys lose their glow

When meteors do fail to show !

Instead we face a blackened sky

Unveiled before our darkened eye

To note the lonliness we feel

And pray that it is most unreal ?

Seems truth keeps getting in the way

Of all the wisdom known today

I can’t accept just how things are

World ignorance has gone too far.

If this is all our lives shall be

I’ll opt for lack of parity

And pray that God who’s Judge of all

Comes to our aid before we fall !

 

IT’S NOT EASY ( 2018 ) 2018/02/06

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 !

 

 

 

ACCEPT DEFEAT ( 2018 ) 2018/01/16

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 !

 

 

WHO’S NEXT ? ( 2017 ) 2017/04/21

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 !
