OH ABSALOM ( 2018 ) 2018/05/09

Sometimes the world is full of gloom

Its sadness darkens every room

The seasons change, they come and go

From springtime’s warmth to winter’s snow.

Days roll on by with no account

Midst tears and sighs in great amount

And justice finds it needs a place

To challenge evil’s false embrace.

What was has been and is no more

Once lost will never be restored

The saddest words that one can say

Oh Absalom, you’ve gone astray !

I sailed down mem’ry lane today

Reviewing things that we might say

And thought about it long and hard

I wonder, have you embraced God ?

Since you and I did not agree

On ways each handled destiny

I’d like to think we shared a view

Of all that would be right to do.

Now you’ve been gone for quite awhile

You earned your honor hero style

This is one lesson you’ve taught me

There’s  no coward in victory !

When I look up into the sky

So full of creatures that do fly

Where images that catch my eye

May mix with clouds here passing by.

Imagination can’t restore

What it is we are searching for

That special something most adore

A secret gift behind each door.

The world is full of guile and guise

Beneath the sea, above the skies

We live in times of great disguise

Truth is hidden amongst the lies !

We are the home of heroes, every color, every size

But who are those now making this effort to minimize ?

It’s been our own courageous patriots who’ve built this land

A place where citizens can work together hand in hand

This homeland where the people have the freedom and the choice

To fly the flag, sing the song, say the pledge or raise their voice !

JUSTICE FLEES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/01

Integrity is but a show

With many icons that we know

How sad too few ever get caught

With values they should have been taught

Why are we mute or silenced there

Have we no one to grieve or care ?

A crime, so many victimized

While efforts all are minimized

Our world is begging on its knees

Save us before all justice flees !

 

 

SAVE OUR DREAMS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/08

There is a place where I can see

This nation’s flag wave over me

The flag it flies with colors bright

It is an oh so wondrous sight

And promises this great surprise

To open every stranger’s eyes

Instilling confidence and pride

With love that wells up deep inside

Old Glory may she ever wave

And all our dreams, help us to save !
