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 !

Unhappiness we cannot bear

Because of sadness we all share,

Please help us Lord to lift our wings

While searching for life’s sweeter things !

The road is long, the journey’s hard

This path that winds its way to God

I am not sure if I’ve the strength

To carry on for its whole length.

But I shall try no matter what

I’ve pledged to give it all I’ve got

I love You Lord, both heart and mind

It is Your peace I hope to find !




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 !

Lord, I won’t sing this song once more

It’s not the same as ’twas before

Our innocence has disappeared

Perhaps it’s worse than what I feared !

I do not recognize the score

And don’t know what we’re fighting for

I can’t determine what to do

We need Your help, please send a clue !


SPECIAL WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/03

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!”


STANDUP TALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/19

Sometimes the dream you’re waiting for

Lies just outside your own front door

Sometimes success that you pursue

Is something you already knew.

Sometimes your life becomes intense

If you’ve no taste for self defense

And when you fumble or you fall

Remember please to standup tall !
