How I’d like to think we’re all the same

That we all possess the selfsame aim

That our instincts tell us what’s correct

And the principles we must expect,

That we live our lives in manner strong

In a place in which respect belongs,

That we honor truth and liberty

In a world wherein all men are free !

I see the flag, it flies on high

Its standards reaching for the sky

The wind whips round its colors bright

Tis true it is an awesome sight.

There is a chill runs down my spine

Convincing me that we’ll be fine

Quite sure each time I fall asleep

I have these promises to keep.

And if I die before I wake

There is a vow you must not break

Command  my ashes to be spread

Along the shore aft I am dead !

The world outside is dark and grim

I beg You Lord, please let me in

It matters not what I shall eat

Or whom it  is that I may meet.

Tis only in the shadow of

Your all consuming constant love

That all my hopes and dreams can be

Some part of life’s reality

I promise now that I will do

What e’er You wish that pleases You !

 

AMEN.

 

HUMAN DIGNITY ( 2018 ) 2018/12/08

So many words are ever sweet

And rest in bundles at my feet

Syllables echoed on my ear

The sound of which I yearn to hear.

I do enjoy the accolades

Of ages past, forgotten days,

When men of words would have their sway

And you and I might nod “hooray”

For those of old much braver be

To speak for human dignity !

 

 

GOD IS THERE FOR YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/11/02

I pine for you my precious child

You weathered life both harsh and mild

When you were young you were so sweet

You truly were your mommy’s treat.

An angel child from heaven sent

Where helping others was your bent

Along the way your life it changed

Your ideas all, how far they ranged.

From deep sea diving to the ice

You did it all and made it nice

Good husband, father, brother too

Your great big world was fond of you.

You never lost your faith in God

Especially when life got hard

We’ll pray that God is there for you

And that His love will follow through !

 

 

 

NO SECRETS HERE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/01

It matters not where you are from

The lower class or high income,

The price has always been the same

A sense of honor, your good name !

Respect for elders, kindly deeds

Concern for others and their needs

The fact that truth is scoring high

Why would another tell a lie ?

If words are all that one has got

What else is there if one is not ?

Tis sad to note that common man

Has more to hide than less to plan

God knows us all and what we do

No secrets here, not me, not you!

 

PAST THE END ( 2018 ) 2018/10/22

Tis soon the dawn, the day begins

As time is short, nobody wins

The loser fades away discreet

Then who’s left standing on his feet  ?

All life is not peaches and cream

Fair or honest, a piper’s dream

While truth gets lost along the way

Is no one there who’ll have a say ?

Remember, only God is just

And worthy of our total trust

He is the Hero and the Friend

Who bides with each far past the end !
