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 !

 

LINCOLN’S ADDRESS TO THE NATION WAS 11/19/1863

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 !

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 !

Have you seen the trouble we are in

Our world’s tilted and in a spin

We’re upside down, we’ve lost our way

There’s nothing left for us to say.

We are not what we used to be

Our freedom is no longer free

The world we’ve known has disappeared

Transformed by lies and avid fear !

 

 

 

 

TO STILL MY VOICE ( 2017 ) 2017/06/25

There is this battle that I fight

From early morn straight through the night

It is a war I cannot win

Sometimes I think I should give in

But that is not left up to me

And leaves no option I can see.

As much as I may choose to stay

Such choices do not pass my way

My God supreme does have control

O’er conscience, body, heart and soul

And He alone does make the choice

To stop my heart or still my voice !

 

 

 

 

MY LIFES LENGTH ( 2017 ) 2017/06/03

Be still my heart, I hear your beat

And from my forehead to my feet

The numbness reaches to my toes

Tis strange the way  this feeling grows.

At times my heart seems in my throat

I think that I could almost float

The fear it rises, comes and goes

When will this end, nobody knows.

But God’s here standing by my side

He holds my hand, He is my ride

I know that He is still my strength

However long be my lifes length !
