I hear the noise and feel your pain

It’s like we are at war again

We need your help, please if you can

From every woman and each man.

Reach out, reach out to help us start

To teach our children to impart

True common sense and caring ways

Into the sharing of their days.

Let all begin to try their best

To breach the wall, to pass the test

Give God the chance to teach us all

For without Him, we’re doomed to fall !

The world we know is in a spin

Look at the trouble we are in

We’ve lost our way and are off course

We need employ another source.

How shall we live, what can we do

We must now ask for help from You

Don’t leave us here it’s far too late

Disaster’s waiting at the gate.

Oh merciful and loving God

The road ahead is rough and hard

Desert us not we are distraught

Help us to live the way You’ve taught !

I wish I were an elephant

With rugged trunk so long and thick

T’would be my speaking instrument

The trumpet sounds both loud and quick.

I grunt and growl and rumble too

Traveling with the herd for miles

My hooves send messages to you

While trunks curve down for friendly smiles.

I’m told that I am very smart

My memory so ever long

Seems I’ve an extra loving heart

Among all beasts I’m the most strong.

Now I’ve been here since mammoth days

And that is like forever time

By now you should respect my ways

And help me to survive decline !

 

GROWING UP ( 2015 ) 2015/03/30

They’ve walked and talked and played a bit

They’ve tossed and lost, made fun of it

As playmates they have shared a game

They ran about and called each name.

For that is what small children do

Beginning to form friendships true

While all the years that pass between

Hold fast as they become a teen.

Their friendships have a special bond

They cling to those of whom they’re fond

They fill the hours of youthful days

In trying out our grownup ways.

God plays a role for they must grow

Into adults who need to know

Because this task is too intense

Who speaks for them in their defense

The problem is in growing up

One needs to drink from every cup !
