Where is the caution that we need

Like all the rules that we must heed

What’s happened to our sanity

Now drowning in profanity ?

Take care, my dear, we’ve just begun

The journey’s long and void of fun

Make sure that you do not lose sight

Of all the tremors of the night.

Remember when the fog rolls in

That each accepts his own chagrin

There is no cover one may choose

The answer is we all do lose !

 

WHERE TO GO ( 2020 ) 2020/01/03

The  tears I shed are not for me

But  for all those who used to be

Part   of our world  now gone astray

Like  ashes of life’s  yesterday.

Once  each  possessed a name and face

And  came from a familial  place

They lived,  they loved,  they breathed the air

And  met the  destiny  all share.

How  strange that we who’ve  stayed behind

Have  yet our  destinies  to find

With  nought a  hint of what  comes next

Of  where  to go or  whom to text !

AMEN.

There is this tugging on my heart

How did it  ever get its start

A  numbness rising  from the floor

Into  my feet and  out the door.

What’s  happening,  I do not know

I  cannot make it  stop or go

Please lead me Lord,  teach me the way

Help  me survive  each lonely  day.

Where are the tears  I need to cry

With  each and every  sad goodbye

Where  are the kisses  I have earned

Ere all  my bridges  have been burned ?

 

 

 

CLEAR SKIES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/27

The  clouds  overhead are  dark and grim

The sky  above  now  has grown dim

As  evening  shadows  gently  fall

The  night moves  in  to cover all.

What happens  when  the world’s  asleep

And images  from  corners creep

Across the  room with  purpose clear

To  know  a  night  without a fear ?

Attend  the coming morn  in shrouds

Lest dawn  arrives  bedecked in clouds

Let’s  veil the  fullness of our day

And  chase  all of our doubts  away !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE LAST LOOK ( 2019 ) 2019/06/28

I find myself out on a limb

Is there some one to let me

How shall I save myself on earth

What is the value of my worth ?

I know that God is always there

And that He hears my every prayer

I’ve tried so hard to do what’s right

Each morning, noon and through the night.

My clock is  running  out it  seems

Like all my hopes and all my dreams

The time is now to close the book

I wish to take this one last look !

 

 

 

 

 

 

LIFE IS A GAMBLE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/07

I’ve trod the road uncounted miles

And shed more than a million tears

While time evoked a thousand smiles

As life revealed a hundred fears.

I cannot know the why of it

From each angle life has displayed

I only know I hope to fit

Before all of my cards are played !

 

MAKE HASTE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/20

A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

 

 

 

OBSESSED ( 2019 ) 2019/01/12

At times I feel I am obsessed

By hopes and dreams and fears possessed

The hope that we shall find a way

To seek a greater role to play

A dream to be the brighter star

Than what we ever really are

The fear to put our dreams to rest

And hope that all will do their best !

 

 

 

 

SEE ME THROUGH ( 2018 ) 2018/08/15

I’ve seen the world about me cry

And heard its whispers of goodbye

I’ve felt the tremor of its fears

All through these recent lonely years

I’ve known the truth and heard its lies

And seen them revel in disguise.

I’ve prayed for help in my distress

And been denied proper redress

I’ve hoped that opportunity

Would visit soon and set me free

But most of all I’ve asked of You

Dear Lord above, please see me through !

The silence falls upon my ear

It seems to be all I can hear

Each sound reverberates with fear

The day of grace is inching near !

 

JUST MELT AWAY ( 2017 ) 2017/10/29

The day grows short as twilight nears

Increasing all impending fears

The darkness moves in closer now

Casting its shadow cross the brow

Welcome to night time one and all

We’re making ready for the call

That detours each along the way

Before our lives just melt away !

 

 

SWEET LAND ( 2017 ) 2017/10/14

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

 

 

PROPHECY ( 2015 ) 2015/12/12

Now I have dreamt a million dreams and realised a few

The ones I value most of all are those I’ve shared with you

My heart has hardened to the pain of those who stand and wait

I cannot bear to face this world that is so full of hate

The time is come, please look about, so much for us to see

Fullfillment of His end of days and of His prophecy !

 

FALLACY ( 2014 ) 2014/03/29

The wind and rain came pelting down

To leave my senses all aground

One question that I asked aloud

Can life progress under a cloud,

Are we all bound to be possessed

By causes old and thoughts distressed ?

Oh, what I’d give to find release

In pleasant joys and joyful peace !

The fantasy of modern day

That won’t attempt to melt away

And hides behind a false facade

Is that no one is fooling God !
