The pendulum moves side to side

It is a somewhat boring ride

And doesn’t variate a bit

When in the rut where it does fit

And that’s a lesson to be taught

About this web in which we’re caught.

Sometimes it may be truly fine

When one decides to tow the line

However that does not preclude

A change in venue or in mood

For each must have freedom of choice

So they may exercise their voice !



TO NEVER TRY ( 2017 ) 2017/04/20

Is there a goal that one must seek

To make us stronger, not so weak,

A purpose that each one must find

To help escape a path unkind.

A babe is born most are the same

Except for color, sex and name

It’s left to them to win or lose

The way of life that each shall choose.

Some win, some fail, some others cry

And there are those who never try !

This heart that now beats in my breast

Is old and tired like the rest

The times have come and they have gone

This life we know must carry on

No matter what we choose to do

Oh Lord, we leave that choice to You !




A CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/07

I wish, I wish I had the words

To tell the crowd how to become

A connosieur of the absurd

Or prophecy of dumb and numb.

This world grows smaller day by day

And madness has now grown a voice

I wish that I could run away

Or help dear God to find a choice !


GOD IS THERE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/14

I believe that life has levels of

Concern and care, devotion and love

They are with us for a lifetime long

And range from the meek to ever strong.

Perhaps some require a stouter voice

To channel the option of their choice

One must not accept that all is lost

Or believe that failure is the cost,

Stand up and shout or cheer if you will

And know that your God is with you still !

Tis sad that we who work so hard

Confirm our faith, believe in God,

Must shield ourselves from Satan’s might

Or cower under power’s fright.

It seems our world is threatened by

This league of rogues both low and high

Who bar the path that we must take

To save our values or forsake.

As for myself, I’ve one reply

I chose my God, He is the guy !

The fog slips in and hugs the ground

The air is still there’s ne’er a sound

I feel the damp inside my bones

My feet can’t grasp the slipp’ry stones.

I sense the chill invade my space

Oh how I need escape this place,

Before my mind grows dim and old

And all I’ve known wanes dread and cold !


To Edward Pavlovich, an old friend who painted

my portrait in 1951,  I remember you ! Thanks !
