I find that life at best is strange

Though I’m not opting for a change

Nor am I saying that it’s bad

What choices are there to be had ?

It seems to me, we have no say

As lives evolve from day to day

Tis time that we accept the fact

It’s God who pens the final act !

There is this hymn I used to hear

Sung ever softly on my ear

When I was young and oh, so small

I loved that tune the best of all.

It was my night time beddie-bye

The one mom sang if I did cry

I  taught my children that same song

When they were young we’d sing along.

We did so quite religiously

In joy and pleasure frequently !

Sometimes the dream you’re waiting for

Lies just outside your own front door

Sometimes success that you pursue

Is something you already knew.

Sometimes your life becomes intense

If you’ve no taste for self defense

And when you fumble or you fall

Remember please to standup tall !

In a garden long, long ago

In a special place I don’t know

Lived someone related to me

Long, long ago in history.

Perhaps one day we’ll get to meet

On a corner of heaven’s street

And if we can’t I will not mind

There will be others I shall find

For we are one huge family

And a part of that selfsame tree !

 

 

DOOMED TO FALL ( 2017 )

I hear the noise and feel your pain

It’s like we are at war again

We need your help, please if you can

From every woman and each man.

Reach out, reach out to help us start

To teach our children to impart

True common sense and caring ways

Into the sharing of their days.

Let all begin to try their best

To breach the wall, to pass the test

Give God the chance to teach us all

For without Him, we’re doomed to fall !

 

PRAISE GOD THE KING ( 2017 ) 2017/10/16

It doesn’t make much sense to me

To claim some bogus victory

Or just pretend that who you are

Is so important by much far

Who cares if one’s the simpler sort

If complications count for nought.

I’d rather be a bird on wing

Who joins his species in birdsing

Than stand upon a mighty stage

With those who are the latest rage.

They curry favor all life long

By singing out song after song,

Instead of praising God the King

Who has created everything !

 

 

 

BY STYLE OR DRESS ( 2017 ) 2017/10/15

We search and search most everywhere

To seek some peace we all may share

There is no safety chaos brings

More joy is found in circus rings.

The labyrinth of life goes on

According to the airs we don

For when we’re done each must confess

One won’t be judged by style or dress !
