It is quite tiresome when one stops to think

The world outside waits trembling on the brink

We may all wish there was another way

To blink our tears and sadnesses away.

But how can we effect a change indeed

When most struggle with this same care or need

Oh faint of heart, who lack the push to start

Back up your strength and all your will impart !

 

GOD’S SERENITY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/16

Can you feel the chill that’s in the air

Do you sense its power everywhere

Will it burrow in and move about

As it spreads its wings both in and out ?

There’s a pendulum that keeps apace

Of all the matters each one must face

Sometimes the pressure becomes too great

Or an answer comes when it’s too late

Truth is I really would chose to be

Included in God’s serenity !

I feel the fury of the wind

That keeps on squealing, ” let me in ”

I hear the angry sounds that shout

I do not know what it’s about,

But I am not some trembling vine

Who operates without a spine

I’ve been around the block too long

You’ll note that I’m not weak but strong !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

 

DO NOT FORGET TODAY   9/11/2001.

 

FADE AWAY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/25

There’s little time for childish games

As now most face true adult aims

The chances lessen day by day

For those who choose a calmer stay.

More stamina is what we need

If all God’s values we pay heed

Remember life is here to stay

It’s only we who fade away !

The eagle flies and tilts his wings

Into the wind as courage springs

The sight of which from earth below

Imprints his efforts in this show

Upon those seeking there aground

The eloquence that he has found

With visions of his grandeur high

He is the strength in God’s great sky !

 

WHAT USED TO BE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/07

The night was dark and cool and clear

The air around was free of fear

As I recall it used to be

When life was happy and carefree.

We laughed and cried and fussed a lot

About what’s fair and what was not

Though not one person would declare

That their own treatment was unfair !

We lived and dreamed our lives away

Believing each, from day to day

This was our homeland, small or large

Where bullies never were in charge !
