This world is crashing all around

Please tell us if you hear the sound

The thunder roars above our head

We cannot hear what e’er’s been said

There still is time left to escape

We need locate our hero’s cape.

Oh Lord we seek some help down here

The path ahead looms dark and drear

Please send us aid on winged feet

So we may triumph  o’er defeat !

 

TATTERED SAILS ( 2016 ) 2016/10/31

The truth seems to be put aside

Else fears and lies will soon collide

For who can know the depth of this

Its people caught in self-abyss ?

One wonders why deceit is king

When honesty heals everything

How can it be blindness prevails

While all our ships hoist tattered sails ?

 

 

CRUEL WORLD ( 2016 ) 2016/10/10

My heart is full, I hear it beat

I will not bow to man’s deceit

Hard to accept, the world’s so cruel

And feeds much fodder to the fool.

The more I see the more I learn

Perhaps we each may take a turn

It’s like a wheel of chance we play

We win or lose from day to day.

However fate’s not always kind

And justice is sometimes quite blind

Is there a path to help us win

Please find a way to let God in !

Oh how I wish I could return to when

I was that innocent young thing again

A time of dreaming and a time of trust

When truth was important and faith a must.

Each path we took had a positive end

We knew the value of a longtime friend

Our nature bade us to follow the rules

Not to venture along the path of fools

That time’s now long gone and all that is left

Are shattered dreams and regrettable theft !

 

 

INVADERS ( 2016 ) 2016/07/27

The hopes of a nation are at stake

Our country’s heart is ready to break

See the facade of all that we are

No more a dream but a falling star.

It matters little what we desire

Because  we are a people afire

The disease is swift consuming all

Hypocrites stand awaiting the fall !

 

ONCE MORE ( 2016 ) 2016/07/20

There was a time quite long ago

When our true colors we did show

And saved this world from tryanny

We helped to set the enslaved free.

Now red was for the blood we shed

So children could sleep safe abed

The blue for truth and honesty

Did aid the weak fight anarchy.

And white for those that died to save

God’s people to escape the grave

How sad that we are forced once more

To fight another ghastly war !

 

WHAT SHALL WE SEE ( 2016 ) 2016/04/06

The time is here, the time is now

We knew that it might come somehow

Last night deep frost did show its face

Now most new green has been erased.

I see the limbs of all the trees

Succumbing to the crippling freeze

That yesterday were chock full of

The thrill of spring and signs of love.

The blossoms filled each branch and twig

At times enhanced by petal’d wig

What shall be left when frost has gone

And damaged growth must carry on ?
