The  pain  is  real  and  so  intense

What  shall  I  do  for  my defense

Oh  blessed  Lord  reach  out  to me

And  grant  me  some  immunity

My  faith  is strong  what  shall I  do

To  prove  that  I  believe  in  You  ?

I’ve  made  the  best  of  what  I’ve  got

And  know  this  is  my  final  shot

Please  help  me  Lord  to  find  some  peace

As  from  this  place  I  beg  release  !

AMEN.

 

GREAT DANGER ( 2020 ) 2020/06/01

What is this madness that we face

That’s taking up our total space

There is great danger spreading here

A danger that we all must fear.

Beware, because the Devil’s come

He is destroying everyone

This is a warning that’s come late

When ever will this hate abate ?

Oh Blessed Lord, we beg You please

Observe Your children on their knees

Reach out to all who are in pain

To save them from this world insane !

 

LOST VICTORY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/04

Oh Lord, there is  so much  pain  I feel

It  goes on  and  on,  forever  real

I  cannot  escape its iron  grasp

With   each  breath I  take,  it’s  like  my last.

Sometimes  I think it  would better  be

To  close my  eyes  in lost victory

Because  this needs all  the strength  I’ve  got

One of those   days that  I’d  rather not !

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE MORE NIGHT ( 2019 ) 2019/10/20

My  heart is heavy,  laden down

As  my whole world  is turned around

My  face  is veiled and  hidden by

Shadows  of tears  I cannot cry.

The silence  of the  night  is there

To  masque  the cloak of fear I wear

Oh  blessed Lord  make my way light

Please  help me get  through one more night !

 

 

 

 

TO ANSWER PRAYER ( 2019 ) 2019/09/25

Oh charity,  be kind to me

Please help  me set  my body free

How much  longer  can I persist

What  shall I do  to pain resist ?

At  times  I’m sure there’ll be no  end

More like a life  without a friend

I didn’t think  I’d have to bear

Unending  pain  or deep despair.

I am not angered  or divorced

With all the  issues time’s  enforced

I only know  that  God is there

To ease all  pain and answer  prayer !

 

NO DUE DATE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/23

The past, it was, but is no more

It tip-toed out of my back door

And left behind so much regret

Twill take a lifetime to forget.

Though I don’t think it ever will

Until my heart at last lies still

I miss you now, it won’t abate

A mother’s love has no due date !

 

 

 

MY NEXT GOAL (2019) 2019/02/24

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:12 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Of all the joys I’ve ever known

The ones I treasure as my own

Are those that I have always spent

Enclosed under God’s earthly tent !

Days when I’m sure I can’t go on

Because the pain is never gone

It tries my patience and my faith

But love of God keeps my heart safe.

And if I keep believing thus

Another day is one more plus

I must have hope to stir my soul

And make tomorrow my next goal !

 

THE LAST GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/23

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:22 am
Tags: , , , , ,

My heart so full I cannot bear

The fact that you will not be there

There’s no warm seat by the fireside

Or any joy I feel inside.

The chimney’s cold, no fire is lit

I am so lost where e’er I sit

However long will this pain last

What will it take before it’s passed ?

I do not know, not you nor I

Or all the angels in the sky

What occurs when a loved one dies

And there’s no way left for goodbyes !

 

REAL LIFE IS HARD ( 2018 ) 2018/12/10

My life moves on, I’m still alive

And plan to think, react and thrive

I’m no fading bud on the vine

Nor am I some sweet valentine !

What e’er I am, there’s no mistake

I’m flexible, I will not break

The power in me comes from my God

Whose taught me this,  real life is hard !

 

ANOTHER TIME ( 2018 ) 2018/10/22

This child I held close to my breast

Has left me now to be at rest

His life  of pain at last set free

Upon God’s unrelenting sea.

This was his battle for too long

He tried so hard, he was so strong

But here we are, this is the end

I’ll miss you son, my life, my friend.

I doubt if we shall meet again

Another time, but where or when,

There’s none to know or even learn

Truth is, no one has e’er returned !

 

 

DISILLUSION ( 2018 ) 2018/10/09

I wish there were another way

To chase this useless ache away

It matters not our needs today

What e’er occurs is come what may !

 

NEED HELP NOW ( 2018 ) 2018/06/12

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:47 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I’m just so tired of all this pain

I  shall never be alright again

Seems every joint has its own complaint

What an ugly picture time does paint !

I won’t give in, that is not my style

I’ve plowed through this with a glued-on smile

Guess I’ll start the process right away

Can’t afford to waste another day.

Forgive me Lord,  I’ve forgotten how

To undo this pain and need help now !

 

 

OUTCOME IS A DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/03/24

Today I trudged along the road

While packing quite a bulky load

My spirit crushed by all the stress

My soul in pain, under duress.

I wish I knew what I should do

To help myself and see this through

At times I feel the battle’s lost

Since I can’t count the total cost

I’ll keep on trying to hold fast

This effort will not be my last

Since God and me are like a team

Let’s pray the outcome is a dream !

 

 

 

SPECIAL WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/03

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:51 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes the pain is so intense

I cannot aid my own defense

The only drug I wish to find

Is what’s propelling my own mind.

No complicated opioids

Nor any “cillins”  or steroids

I’m so much stronger than that crap

Who needs to fall into the trap ?

There are some words we all should say,

“Please help us Lord get through this day

Grant us the strength to overcome

The evil that this world’s become!”

 

CLEAR THE VIEW ( 2017 ) 2017/11/28

Tags: , , , , ,

I get so tired of all the pain

How I wish that I could start again

What I’d give to have a chance to be

Someone who lives in a world ache free

But that concept will not fly right now

I need learn to struggle through somehow

While faith in the Lord, a prayer or two

May part the clouds and help clear the view !

 

 

 

A SPECIAL PRAYER ( 2017 ) 2017/11/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:40 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I see the flag o’er coffins draped

Our values and our nation raped

And youth that we look forward to

Who shall inherit all we do ?

These are the victims of the crime

That worsens with passing of time

Oh Lord, please say a special prayer

To save us from this dark despair !

 

LOADS OF THINGS ( 2017 ) 2017/08/02

The legs won’t move, they seem possessed

And cause great pain with no redress

The body aches and labors so

It is an effort  just to go.

With time all problems multipy

There is no way one can defy

The chronic ills that ageing brings

To life and limb and loads of things !

 

 

 

 

STRONG OPINION ( 2017 ) 2017/07/21

What is this hell that men call war

What is it they are fighting for

They’ve wasted so much blood and gore

We’ve known  it all and want no more !

 

SMALL VICTORY ( 2017 ) 2017/07/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:04 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Oh Lord sometimes I find I cannot bear

This useless pain I suffer everywhere

I’ve searched so hard to find another way

To force this endless ache to fade away.

My strength is gone and my courage got lost

As I feel myself in a tempest tossed

Dear Lord, what shall I do to set me free

Help me to score this last small victory !

 

 

 

NONSENSE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/12

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:17 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I wish, I wish that I could be

A magic fairy on a spree

Or Christmas star upon your tree

And if not that, a busy bee

To buzz around and set you free

So you may spend the day with me.

Thus from our pain we both shall flee

Before the queen sits down to tea

And other children can agree

The time is now to live with glee !

 

EARTHBOUND ( 2017 ) 2017/04/26

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:11 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes the pain’s too much to bear

Sometimes defense is meant to share,

I’ve often wished that I could fly

On cushioned wings into the sky

Escaping earth and its confines

Midst all the angst that life defines

I understand as one earthbound

What I search for is not aground !

 

 

LESS FROWNS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/19

When life seems poorly, sad or tragic

Please try a smile, it works like magic

It is contagious as you can see

Most all folks react like you and me.

Have you noticed those whose mouths turn down

It lends faces that unpleasant frown

What a friendly picture it could be

To see a smile, maybe two or three.

Life certainly has both ups and downs

It would be great if we saw less frowns !

 

 

WE ALL BELONG ( 2017 ) 2017/01/16

I thank you God for life is kind

There always is some good to find

Though painful days will sadness bring

Together with our suffering.

Sometimes we rise beyond the past

To find the calm we dream may last

For life is more than stuff or things

It’s full of joyous happenings

It’s peace and love, laughter and song

God’s world in which we all belong !

 

 

 

 

SIMPLISTIC ( 2016 ) 2016/12/07

One cannot know just how I feel

About a war that was so real

There is no way I  will forget

All those sad days that haunt me yet

And sometimes when I’m in sleep land

The visions seem too close at hand.

I pray to God we’ll never know

The ugliness that from wars flow

Quite often when I’m at my ease

I beg of God, end all wars please !

 

 

REPAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/11/17

My heart is torn and needs repair

Where e’er I look I sight despair

Oh gracious Lord, please bring us peace

And from this pain grant our release !

 

ALRIGHT AGAIN ( 2016 ) 2016/08/30

The mind has trod a narrow path

With subtle warnings nature hath

Endowed the shadows of the past

In tyrannies that failed to last.

We find ourselves in madness caught

Another lesson to be taught

Insanities surround us all

How shall we answer to the call ?

Our lives so very full of pain

When shall we feel alright again ?

 

 

SHOW ME THE WAY ( 2016 ) 2016/07/10

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:19 am
Tags: , , , , ,

At times the pain is so intense

That even tears are no defense

I want to run or fly away

When all my prayers can’t save the day

I do not see how else to live

And need your help to please forgive

Those days that I have thought to die

Before my time to bid goodbye.

I know that there is more to say

Please guide me Lord, show me the way !

 

 

NOWHERE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/04

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:18 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I live with pain that never ends

At length, we have become old friends

I’ve learned to thrive in spite of it

At times it takes a bit of grit !

I’ve dreamt a dream wherein I win

But that’s if God will count me in

I need His help and love and care

Without that, I will get nowhere !
