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 !

For so it is and it will be

We need the truth to set us free

What is the cost of liberty

If we are blind or will not see ?

With all the nonsense we do see

We’re so thankful for our country

We have so much just look around

It is the finest to be found.

One nation of the brave and free

A bastion of our liberty

Which many now scheme to destroy

Whatever methods they’ll employ.

In truth our God is always there

To answer our unending prayer

And keep us safe no matter what

We pledge our lives and all we’ve got !

I’d like to say that I know all

The promises I should recall

But since I was a tiny tot

It seems to me there were a lot.

 

While childhood was to home confined

I promised that I’d always mind

In Sunday school I swore that I

Would love the Lord and never lie.

 

Then as I grew and went to school

I pledged the flag and golden rule

When I was twelve, Girl Scouts came next

I took the vows and learned the text.

 

Now at thirteen I was confirmed

That’s where Commandments all were learned

High School became a brand new stage

I entered in another age.

 

I’d like to think I’ve done my best

For family, God and the rest

As truth and faith, integrity

Mean everything on earth to me !

 

 

 

 

 

HYPOCRITES ( 2015 ) 2015/10/15

There’s so much now that used to be

A segment of our history

Forgotten days and glory old

When men who ruled were brave and bold.

They raised our hopes and promised dreams

None have the courage now it seems

Their service is with lips alone

Mass fallacies which they intone.

God save us from the hypocrite

With whom no honor cares to sit

Return us to our glory days

Help us redeem our honest ways !

The heavy crush of busy streets

Onlookers streaming everywhere

In flip-flops, sneakers, shoes with cleats

A world of madness we all share.

The hawkers, conmen, charlatans

All crowding round their corner carts

Beware the city’s denizens

In great rush to display their arts.

The simple act of walking out

And window shopping just for fun

Enjoying all the scenes about

May be precarious for some!

 

OUR VICTORY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/06

Some might think that I am foolish

Or even that I’ve lost my mind

I am not known to be churlish

Not spiteful, silly or unkind.

I have no wish to tarry on

Or try to take up too much space

Please note, I am no paragon

Quite long ago I learned my place.

Our lives should be more simplified

With cause for no great mystery

We live by faith and faith implies

Our honor is our victory !
