Well here we are, believing what

With all this detail we have got ?

There are too many who will say

There is no God, not here today.

 

I can’t recall who said it first

But I am sure their bubble’s burst.

Just look around what do you see

A world that needs God’s charity !

 

ELUSIVE REST ( 2017 ) 2017/12/10

The snow is clinging to the bough

The weather’s turning cold and how

The winter chill cuts to the bone

I think I’d rather stay at  home.

I’d like to be inside for now

So I may  keep warmed up somehow

And pick a spot close to the fire

Therein imagine sweet desire

Where in the end life does attest

Our souls do seek elusive rest !

 

LIFE’S LAST SLEEP ( 2017 ) 2017/12/05

There’s been so many friends along the way

That have gotten lost or have gone astray

While their faces blur and the names escape

Memories get caught in the charged landscape !

As the past rolls by and the time moves on

I will wait here like an old mastodon

In a silence that I would like to keep

Until I close my eyes in life’s last sleep !

 

 

 

I HATE WAR ( 2017 ) 2017/12/04

How I hate war, oh Lord, how I hate war

What is the point, what’s it intended for

Where is the end, tell me what shall we do

How can we comprehend life’s carry through ?

I see those faces that once were unlined

But now to agony are thus confined

I hear the rasping sound of raling breath

The gasping halt that’s prone to preface death

Be gone this hate, the anger too, I say

Please Lord we beg of You show us the way !

 

 

IT’S POSSIBLE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/26

What is it that life offers all

The chance to shape what may befall

A hope to curb our every whim

Control those steps outside the rim

To spend our days pursueing peace

And from all powers find our release

For somehow time gets in the way

When love does steal the heart away !

 

GOD’S SOLUTION ( 2017 ) 2017/11/13

I’ve grown through all these many years or so

It seems there’s really no place left to go

There’s no way yet to thrive in outer space

In truth it’s not  a safe or happy place.

I’d rather be stuck in a cardboard box

Or forced to walk without both shoes and sox

Than sacrifice the pleasures that I’ve known

Among my family and friends at home.

At this stage of life I find I’m confined

By the strings of our love and joy combined

I believe that I’ll simply hang around

Until God’s solution at last is found !

 

TO ATONE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/22

There is no way I understand

How tempers get so out of hand

I’ve never seen such anger shown

From persons both known and unknown

What is there that can rile one up

Enough to overflow the cup ?

We’ve seen the foolishness of some

Who cannot seem to overcome

This sad behavior they have used

On those they’ve bullied or abused

Perhaps through faith and time alone

They’ll seek God’s wisdom to atone !
