POSSESSIONS ( 2020 ) 2020/06/22

I  see the  world  through  portals  bound

By  all  the  objects  that  we’ve  found

To   fill  our  lives  with  great  excess

Of  foolishness  that  we  possess  !

My  life  is  o’er,  how  fast  it  went

I  wonder  where  my  time’s  been  spent

It’s  passing  by  too  swiftly  now

The  cradle  has  long  left  the  bough.

I  shall  not  pass this  way  again,

Perhaps  I  may  remember  when

The  days  have  gone  or  passed on  by

Each  full of  smiles or  tears  we’ve  cried.

Oh  how I  wish  that  I  would  be

Some  creature  flitting,  tree  to  tree

Who’s  spent  its  life  up  in  the  air

Where  only  God and  birds may  share !

 

 

 

 

WHEN ? ( 2020 ) 2020/06/13

We’re  standing  in  a line  where  we must  wait

Tis  not  a  journey  we  anticipate

The  day  is  not  too sunny  nor  too  cool

Nor  meant  to  be a  space  for  fake  or  fool

So   here  we  stand  before  God’s  final  gate

And  wonder  how  much  longer  is  the  date

Before  we enter  into  paradise

Where  we’ll  no  longer  suffer  Satan’s  lies !

We  view  our  lives  through  tainted  eyes

Because  this  world  is  bathed  in  lies

Real  faith  exists  in  truth  alone

Since  hearts  of  men  oftimes  are stone.

Though  many  strong  are  honor  bred

While  others  bask  in  shade  instead,

How  sad that  we  discover  late

Powers  we  hold  o’er  our own  fate  !

 

 

NONE ARE FREE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/08

How  can  it  be,  the  path  is  clear

Why  should  some  acts  instill  deep  fear

What  crisis  now  hinders  our  ways

And  complicates  too many  days ?

Where  is  the peace  that  we  all  seek

To  get  one  through  each  coming  week

Have  we methods  to  gain  redress

Why  can’t  we  live  without  distress ?

It  simply  seems to  query  why

We  must  suffer  ere  we should  die

For  life  was  never meant  to  be

A  paradise  where  none are  free  !

 

NOT TOO LATE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/03


When I was small I chose to be

A child of God, inspired and free

I’ve loved the Lord my whole life through

My faith in God’s been tried and true.

I’ve prayed so hard that I might find

A key that would one day unwind

The path to peace and heaven’s gate

Dear Lord, I hope it’s not too late !

 

 

 

 

HIS SHOW ( 2020 ) 2020/05/30

The tide flows in all swift and fleet

And almost knocks me off my feet

The water moves at a quick pace

And comes and goes with ne’er a trace

It makes no sound as it moves on

But silent, seeks its echelon.

For all we know, what do we see

One’s vision of sobriety

Hold on, hold on, do not let go

God’s beside us, this is His show !

 

HEREDITY ? ( 2020 ) 2020/05/26

There is a world that waits for me

Somewhere across God’s great blue sea

A place where anger can’t exist

And only kindness does persist.

But I’m not sure if I can wait

To make the journey to that Gate

Because my world is falling down

And crushing kindness to the ground.

What shall I do, how can this be

Is this the new heredity ?

Oh Gracious Lord, remember me

For only You can set me free !

My eyes are full of wonder

My heart so wild with glee

What is this spell I’m under

How does it affect me ?

I’m a child who loves my God

And wishing all I could

That most lives are not that hard

And mercy’s understood !

AMEN.

Stand up my dear and look around, what is it that you see      

Nonsense and  foolishness  that’s  steeped in  inequality       

How  sad  that  this is all  that’s  left of  sensibility       

When will the  guilty  be returned   to  culpability ?        

 

    

AN OBSERVATION.

 

JUDGEMENT DAY ( 2020 ) 2020/03/22

Oh wind that breaks upon the waves

And breeze that shares each morning’s gaze

Teach me to chant a pirate song

That I to seafaring belong.

Oh save my heart from lonesomeness

While all my handicaps confess

Help me to strive for constancy

And all my weaknesses foresee.

Hand me the light that I might shine

It’s endless glow on yours and mine

God let us put our toys away

Make ready for our Judgement Day !

 

BORN TO DIE ( 2020) 2020/03/21

My  heart calls out His holy name

And  searches for  the way He came

To  Calvary onto  the cross

To suffer there man’s  greatest loss,

But  who am  I   to question why

The  Son of God was born  to die !

I’ve  wandered down  on memory lane

Hoping  to visit  old  friends again

Trying  to recall  what used  to be

Traveling  back in my memory

So  many shadows along the way

Of  all we have met here day by day

Celebrate  occasions one by one

From  early  morn till each  day is done !

Oh how my love plays tricks on me

And gathers up my sympathy

My eyes are full of sweet surprise

With all the joy of each sunrise

Observe God’s will with constant heart

Stay true to values from the start

Believe in your own destiny

Keep faith alive and courage free

Always remember God is there

To save us whether foul or fair !

 

PEACE OF MIND ( 2020 ) 2020/03/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:01 am

The  sun is rising  o’er the hill

The  air is motionless  and still

There’s  not a breeze  stirs in the trees

As  if the day’s  caught  in a freeze

The  room is silent  and alone

A  truly  antiseptic  zone.

Oh  how I wish  that I could  fly

Up  to  a  haven  in the  sky

But  guess that  I  may only dream

Of  my  unrealistic  scheme

Oh  Lord  above,  help  me to find

Some  safety and true  peace  of mind !

 

 

 

 

 

THE EXIT (2020) 2020/02/17

Love  is the strength  I lean upon

My  faith,  my  hope,  my carry on

Without  the Lord  where would I be

Alone  in some  lost company.

I  never thought  I’d spend my  days

At  last in one forgotten  haze

The  final exit  left for  me

Is  labeled  God’s  eternity  !

Sometimes  this world gets in the way

We  come and go,  yet cannot stay

Or  find a path  to keep us free

From  all of life’s  complexity.

I’ve  often  wondered  just how long

We’re  all expected  to be strong

It  takes some bit of  grit to see

The  pathway  to  eternity !

 

 

UNFLINCHING LOVE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/31

When  I was young and full of vim

That  was the time  I first knew Him

It  changed my life  that  very day

For  I began to walk  His way.

How  simple it was,  I did find

As  He brought me  such peace of mind

A  strength  I gathered from above

And  power of  His unflinching love !

 

 

THE LAST HURRAH ( 2019 ) 2019/12/31

Too  many dreams have  come and gone

While  life itself  still  lingers on

The  days pass by,  the candle burns

As  years fly past,  the earth still turns.

What  was today now  bids goodbye

And  all that’s left,  a  quiet  sigh !

 

 

HIS WORD WILL REIGN ( 2019 ) 2019/12/25

I wish,  I wish I could have been

On that long road to  Bethlehem

To witness those bright stars at night

That  to all proclaimed  Christ’s  birthright.

Oh  star of wonder  teach  me how

To  bide with truth and  honor now

Because  I know  His Word will reign

Upon  this earth  again,  again !

 

 

 

HOPEFUL PRAYERS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 11:52 am
Tags: , , , , ,

When shades of night begin to fall

And evening hours do softly call

I find that I’m drawn to the sight

Of bright stars that light up the night,

While now and then as one zips past

It leaves a trail that does not last.

The stars are born in distant skies

Beyond the search of human eyes

The best that we can ever do

Is hope our prayers one day come true !

Here  in the silence  of  the night

One finds the courage and  the might

Of  all that’s  proffered in  His sight

By God  whose  judgement is the Light !

 

 

HE’S PROMISED ALL ( 2019 ) 2019/11/08

The  Word of God  shines  bright and clear

Sincerity  rings  on  the  ear

And  leads us to  the proper  way

To  mend our lives  as we  do  pray.

The  lessons  learned and manners taught

Are  those that  have our freedom  bought

If  we accept this  gift  He  gave

He’s  promised all,  our souls  He’ll save !

The  northern  winds are  blowing now

They’ve  lobbied  hard across the bow

And  times are changing  every day

As  life is  waning  fast away.

When  is it  we’ll get straight  again,

Begin  once  more to  act like  men

Preserve  our  values  and defend

Our  Constitution  to the end ?

This  heart of mine  cannot erase

The  image of that  gentle face

I’d  noticed oft  how kind you were

To  passerby or  some stranger.

The paths we trod as each grew old

Echo  our values  wise and bold

The Lord above  shall  judge us all

And we  must answer  to His call !

 

 

AMEN. ( 2019 ) 2019/09/21

Through thick and thin we did begin

Our journey long by charging in

Our courage hasn’t failed before

We stand our ground forever more.

No cowardice to e’er be found

Wherein our qualities abound

We are a nation based on truth

Oft overcome by leaked uncouth.

It matters small we’ve manners rude

Or if our language appears crude

For we are but an arm of strength

Protecting God and friends at length !

 

NOW SING ALONG ( 2019 ) 2019/09/20

Long time  ago when I  was young

We had  great songs  that could  be sung

About  our nation and our lives

And thousands  over time  survives.

These words of courage  carry on

With  impact of the clarion

They sing of life and  love and care

Of hope and joy,  grief and despair.

Let’s lend  our  voice to all we feel

Because  our  sentiment  is real

Like all  the  verses we have heard

Repeat  to us  God’s  promised word !

 

 

REAMS AND REAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/09/18

Days come and  go,  life is  that way

We  live  in hope,  then  fade away

The days  are long  but time  is short

While in  life’s  web, we are all caught.

The chances  are we’re  not done yet

There is  much more that  we can get

Let’s fill our  hearts,  fulfill our dreams

And love our  God  just reams and reams !
