CONFESSION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/02

I’ve always known I was a child

Polite and kind, ne’er rude or wild

Perhaps that is the reason why

My passive nature gets me by.

I wish that I could gather strength

Pursue my dreams to greater length

What is it folks are fighting for

To curry favor, change decor ?

Now I have traveled very far

Across the seas, both ship and shore

My heart has weathered many storms

And travesties beyond the norm !

 

My curly hair that used to be

Has now begun deserting me

It is not washing down the drain

Just tired curling up again.

While fate has opened every door

To follow through or settle score

I wonder what may soon occur

And to what power I must defer ?

The hours too fast are speeding by

All clouded with both tears and sigh

Oh gracious Lord now hear my plea

My hope is to abide with Thee !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TIS JUST THE FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/08/29

Our world is really in a mess

Growing much worse I must confess

Seems someone, though we don’t know who,

Has played his dirty trick or two

And left us all in one great bind

For some solution we must find.

We’re upside down and downside out

We’ve lost our strength and have no clout

So buckle up and gather strength

We need to go to any length

If we’re to win this bloody war

Tis just the fight we’re ready for !

I often think no matter what

That I will give all that I’ve got

And pray that I’m much better than

Some mediocre protest plan !

I’ll stand up for the land I love

Her people that I am proud of

Her flag and constitution too

The honor of red, white and blue

I sure hope most will join with me

To fight to keep our liberty !

The more I see the more I think

This world it totters on the brink

Seems no solution has appeared

The final outcome is quite clear

We’re on the eve of some attack

How shall we win our freedom back ?

I hear the sound of our retreat

We need to get back on our feet

Stand up for what you know is right

We can’t afford to lose this fight !

 

 

FINDING COURAGE ( 2015 ) 2015/10/21

There are those times that I can’t help but wander back

To those wartime years after Pearl Harbor’s attack

Now as our numbers winnow down to disappear

Gone the values we had that triumphed over fear.

Too many forget those stark days we learned to bear

Almost as though the bulk of us were never there

Memories so hard to crush, dormant in the mind

Whence hides the greater part of courage each did find !

 

TOOTH AND NAIL ( 2014 ) 2014/10/31

We’ll say goodbye to days that were

With all the visions they incurred

While every road must have a bend

So every page may have an end !

The times have come and gone away

To leave us lost or led astray

Or on the path to happiness

Possessing keys to our success !

To each is given that bag of tools

God’s map to life supplies the rules

What shall we do then if we fail

We’ll try again with tooth and nail !
