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 !

 

THE RECIPE OF WAR ( 2018 ) 2018/12/07

There was a war long time ago

In places that we did not know

So many years now in our past

Proof of length that memories last.

Both young and old were forced to fight

Across the globe or out of sight

A war that simply parried on

Left none untouched here or beyond.

Now I am old but can recall

Those shadows cast upon my wall

With forgotten names that I’d known

Redemptions’ chance all but unknown.

Oh, someone should research this tale

Ere soon we shall completely fail !

I try so hard to comprehend

Why all our dreams are at their end

Or why our future is unclear,

The minds of most too full of fear ?

I thought we’d learned how to behave

To play the hero not the knave,

Accept the truth with open heart

And to define its nobler part.

We look into the mirror blind

What type of image will one find

Does no one see themselves for real

How can this nation ever heal ?

Oh Lord, dear Lord, what have we done

What madness is this we’ve begun ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE ROAD ( 2015 ) 2015/03/02

This road that I have chosen is lonely cold and dark

The path that I now follow is truly bare and stark

There’s no other option either here or on the way

Once the journey has begun the rule is you must stay.

It’s taken up too much time this is my foolish choice

Lord, I beg You walk with me I know You’ve heard my voice

I’ve made my share of errors I’m sure You’ve watched me fall

I ask for Your forgiveness I’ve been ashamed to call.

But that’s all over now I cannot change what is done

I simply need to finish this task I have begun !
