I never thought that I would be

A victim of hypocrisy

But day by day in every way

I see the role I’m meant to play.

Truth is I can’t remember when

We’ll have the chance to speak again

Though I shall wish you all the best

While begging God, control the rest !

Oh wicked wind where have you been

What kind of trouble are you in

You’ve set your aim upon the waves

And sent great ships unto their graves.

You’ve damaged all the tallest sails

With wild velocity of gales

You’ve churned the sea into a broil

Unfit for gentleman or churl.

All islands are in fear of you

Because of ravages you do

The mountains cower under seige

Due to the damages you leave.

The sands of deserts crowd the air

Because your strength does tarry there

Where do you fit into God’s scheme

I do not know, I can but dream !

And so it is that I am tossed

Among the winds and shadows lost !

 

STILL BE FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/01

There was a time that’s now gone past

When we dreamt dreams that seemed to last

And compromise was but the thought

Of all the lessons we’d been taught.

When life meant more than recompense

And most espoused good common sense

Consideration was the key

To all of God’s humanity.

Alas for most this disappeared

Replaced by arrogance and fear

Is it too late to make amends

To garner strength and still be friends ?

 

 

 

WILL WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/11

I’ve often wondered why it’s so

That sadness follows where we go

And life is never thought complete

Without these stories of defeat

Or why we rally to the cause

Of infidels and unjust wars

And so the cycle carries on

When will all wars cease and be gone ?

 

 

DISAPPOINTMENT ( 2014 ) 2014/11/02

When I was young and in my teens

I never owned a pair of jeans

At school we learned to sew and cook,

Spend time with God and His good book.

There was world war, we did our part

And prayed that soon our lives would start

We volunteered for U S O

And questioned where our youth should go !

Cold war, Korea, Vietnam

Ungodly wars since it began

Please pray on this, what shall we do

When will its ugliness be through ?
