How  can  it  be,  the  path  is  clear

Why  should  some  acts  instill  deep  fear

What  crisis  now  hinders  our  ways

And  complicates  too many  days ?

Where  is  the peace  that  we  all  seek

To  get  one  through  each  coming  week

Have  we methods  to  gain  redress

Why  can’t  we  live  without  distress ?

It  simply  seems to  query  why

We  must  suffer  ere  we should  die

For  life  was  never meant  to  be

A  paradise  where  none are  free  !

 

CLUTCH OF FEAR (2020) 2020/05/28

There is this sadness in my heart

That years ago had its small start

When I was young and chose to be

The backbone of my family.

Though times were hard and cupboards bare

Our crippled world was forced to share

We wasted not nor did we slack

But strove to take our nation back.

Who thought that we would once again

Return to those ” remember when ” ?

Oh Blessed Lord, be with us here

To save us from this clutch of fear !

 

ALL THE GRIEF ( 2020 ) 2020/05/12

What madness has pursued us here

Instilling each one’s greatest fear

Of life and limb or illness known

That by the air is being sown ?

What must we do to save our world

From all this grief that has been hurled ?

Help me share this moment of fear

Of chaos, of loss with a tear

I’m caught in a net of sadness

Lost in the spin of its madness

Seeming so empty and tragic

Here in the twist of life’s magic !

 

FAIR PLAY ( 2020 ) 2020/03/30

Tis sad the problem we now face

As members of the human race

The pestilence has taken hold

Of world wide fear, exceeding bold

To cover all the good and kind

That we’d the power here to find.

So simple when we understand

That life is ruled by God’s command

Accept His judgement every day

His sense of justice and fair play !

 

THERE IS NO CURE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/11

This pain  I feel,  unending  bad

So  far the worst of what I’ve had

I  don’t know how  to stop the ache

It’s  all too real,  no space for  fake.

Somehow  I have  to clear my mind

And  beg of God,  His peace to find

What  is the next that I must do

I  need a moment  to think  through.

The  road ahead  is  blank and dim

I  can’t  proceed,  not without  Him

I’m lost  alone without  a cure

The  end  draws near  of this I’m  sure

God  is my anchor  tried and true

To  Him,  I’ll  be one of His  crew !

At  times  I  try so very hard

For  all my sadness to discard

To smile and bring my life on track

And pray to lure  good humor back.

Our  lives  are but a  series of

Moments of fear,  joy,  tears and  love

However  tough  the times  may be

It’s  always  just  temporary  !

 

 

DOUBTS AND FEARS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/30

Dreams  are part of each one’s life scheme

For  none exists  without  some dream

The  good,   the bad,  the  discontent

Have  dreamt  those that from God  are sent.

The  Good Book  tells  tale after  tale

Of  those  angels  that  are  regaled

The  simplest  babe  while fast  asleep

Reacts  to dreams  the while he  sleeps.

No  one  eludes  reality

Of  this  wide world  of  mystery

Through  which  all fears  do ever  wind,

The  place where  our doubts  are confined !

How often is it  that  we think

This  world of ours  is on the brink ?

What  e’er occurs  within our  sight

No matter if it’s  left  or right

Should  savour all  despite  the fear

God’s  Judgement Day  moves  ever near !

There are times my pain evinces fears

And burdens life with unwanted tears

Moments  when one is  upended  by

A  lack of concern  or  passersby

Please  help me Lord,  so I may erase

The spell of doom that now clouds my face !

Tis strange there is no rest at all

For those who stumble or who fall

Or those who’ve willed their lifetime call

To carry someone else’s ball !

Oh dearest friend, I feel your grief

I wish to proffer some relief

You close your eyes to bar the strife

That’s happening within your life.

An agile mind that used to be

Now chained by its infirmity

Oh dearest one, you’ve come this far

Try to remember who you are !

 

 

WHO KNOWS (2019) 2019/02/25

When I was young I used to pray

That I would be a mom one day

I’d raise my offspring to be good

And do the things that children should.

I’d hoped that we’d fulfill the dream

It was a lock or so it seemed

The angels watched from up above

And filled their heads with care and love.

But love is not enough to save

Each one of them from perils grave

There is no way that we may know

Wherein life’s tragedies will grow.

In winds of war or illness great

Who knows the time or day or date ?

 

 

WORDS OF WISDOM ( 2019 ) 2019/01/18

What is it that I want to say

What act of wisdom to display

What golden thought may I impart

To let you know what’s in my heart ?

For I am old, beyond most fear

My day of judgement soon draws near

The only message that I know

Is fear your God and love Him so !

 

 

SILENCE OR VOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/05

There is a door that opens wide

To reveal secrets deep inside

Within life’s labyrinth of fears

Close to a hydrant full of tears.

This battle which abides within

Determines if we lose or win

As God alone does aid our choice

So each may choose silence or voice !

 

UNSELFISH CARE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/19

Our faith in God counts quite a lot

As it’s the only hope we’ve got

That bides with us both night and day

To keep us safe and fears allay.

Too soon the dark moves closer in

As each prepares to lose or win

Remember always God is there

Sharing love and unselfish care !

In truth, the heart does beat away

Biding its time day after day

And as each day goes whizzing by

The clock will tick and hands will fly

With wings so swift and life so fleet

You’ll feel the spinning on your feet !

Our time, one day will disappear

Along with love and life and fear !

 

 

REFLECTIONS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/04

I have thought myself alone

On the precipice of fate

With the hope I can atone

As it’s never out of date.

I have dreamt for many years

That our dreams are not quite real

But reflections of our fears

And the passions that we feel !

The time is now, the end appears

We can’t escape, the climax nears

Tis karma for the empty years

We are prepared to face our fears !

Like the ashes from the ember

We have promised to remember

Will it last this way forever

I can hear the answer, never !

The quiet of the lonely night

Now  fills my waiting ears

The silence funnels all the fright

Into my wildest fears !

I hear the sounds of early morning now

Somewhere in the distance, a mooing cow

With traffic passing on a busy road

The whir of truck tires with their heavy load

The predawn mist that finds it’s meant to stay

On a day that seems dark and dullish grey

As the tides roll in they all crash ashore

Just to wash away what was here before !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

THE FINAL DEAL ( 2018 ) 2018/01/21

As we age there’s much greater fears

Sometimes our days begin  with tears

Not from the aches we used to know

When we were fresh and game to go

Teardrops may fall with passing time

Searching for the end of our climb

Ask  fates that be to tell us why

At this late stage it’s norm to cry

The growing process is too real

While we await God’s final deal !

 

BID GOODBYE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/25

Seems like old age is sneaking up on me

Urging to make way for reality

And join the varied seasons passing by

As all the fragments of each year do fly.

With all my heart I wish that I could see

The times I loved that were our used to be

Too soon old memories we’ve kept must die

While most need learn how does one bid goodbye !

 

 

NATURE’S FURY ( 2017 ) 2017/12/13

The earth it rumbles, the mountain quakes

The land around it shivers and shakes

The air is silent and seems intense

With no place left for one’s own defense.

The bells ring out, hear the warnings toll

The world now plays a dangerous role

While the lives of those who mill about

Are filled with fear and tremble with doubt

Pray nature’s fury spares all our lives

With God’s help His compassion survives !

Once was a war, the worst we’d had

With consequence both bad and sad

Most of our men who truly tried

Did all they could before they died !

Oh goblins and spooks, skeletons and ghosts

These are the spirits who play today’s hosts

Pirates, buccaneers are part of the game

All masquerading to act in the name.

As All Hallows Eve the world knows it best

With bonfires and masks the Celts showed their zest,

Marking the end of summertime’s lush

Embracing the dark of cold, snow and slush !

 

A THOUSAND TEARS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/10

Who has not shed a thousand tears

To rid themselves of earthly fears

And all of this to no avail

As man’s inclined to often fail.

Now what are we but impotent

In this our world of God’s invent

Let’s settle in remembering

That He determines everything !
