Oh mighty owl high in my tree

I pray you do not pressure me

I’m not prepared for your bad news

Luck is the thing that I could use.

There are some stories I have heard

About your wisdom and your word

How you instill a certain fear

In all of those who dare to hear.

Please help me out sir, if you can

For I am born of mortal man

My needs are small, my chances few

I sure would like some help from who ?

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 !

Tis true that tears are often sweet

That courage rises from defeat,

That wisdom needs to curb its cheek

With all those words that it may speak.

While silence is the calmest way

To channel all our fears away

It’s working hard that is the call

To save us from decline and fall !

 

 

 

 

MAKE WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/11

I have been taught my whole life long

To love my God and to be strong

To help my neighbors and my friends

To pray for peace and make amends.

Yet still I find the world I see

Is rife with much hostility

The days grow old, deep in morass

When will some of this anger pass ?

In all our lives we find no peace

When will God grant our soul’s release,

I don’t know how to fight the beast

Help us, oh Lord, make wars to cease !

I’d like to shout from rooftops high

To all of those just passing by

Is there compassion in your heart

What must we do to reach a start

Let’s try once more to make amends

And see if we can’t all be friends !

 

 

REPETITION ( 2017 ) 2017/01/28

I wonder, God, if it’s okay

To ask You for another stay ?

I sure could use a second chance

To search around for life’s romance

I do get, oh, so tired of

A world that seems devoid of love !

 

ANGER ( 2017 ) 2017/01/14

Of all the evils that exist

That constant are and do persist

The worst of these remain to date

Those filled with unrelenting hate.

Oh what a sadness that must be

The cost of anger’s never free

And leaves an emptiness inside

That sometimes is too hard to hide.

Perhaps these feelings do abate

Oft times occuring far too late

It seems we’ve no solution there

Our only hope is God and prayer !
