How I’d like to think we’re all the same

That we all possess the selfsame aim

That our instincts tell us what’s correct

And the principles we must expect,

That we live our lives in manner strong

In a place in which respect belongs,

That we honor truth and liberty

In a world wherein all men are free !

Tis now the time of Easter morn

When hope of man will be reborn

It was the day of Christ, you know

About two thousand years ago.

An honest man of word and deed

Who came to save our world in need

This  son of God who suffered so

Did save us from all hell below.

And so today we honor Him

Who died to save us from our sin

Remembering His agony

Because He died to set us free !

 

 

SURRENDER ( 2019 ) 2019/04/16

The Ides of March have come and gone

And gave us nought to wish upon

We are defeated and undone

With no place left for us to run.

How shall we make our way today

When there’s no place to hide away

Surrender is the one true path

To offer God all that we hath !

 

 

HIS FINAL CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/03/30

Whate’er we hear or see each day,

Integrity gets in the way

Truth comes at last, who is the Beast

That rules the world and all its Least ?

We certainly are gone quite mad

In truth, most citizens are sad

Hyenas rule at every gate

The Just are cowed and much irate.

Salvation seems quite overdue

How shall we know when dreams come true

Perhaps to pray as we’ve been told

Remembering God’s promise old

Each are His children one and all

Awaiting on His final call !

 

 

 

KINDER DAYS ( 2019 ) 2019/03/29

When I was young and quite naive

There were these myths I did believe

I’ve learned the moon’s not made of cheese,

Be sure to say “thank you” and “please”

The world has changed, I understand

But overall, life can be grand.

There is one thing I’d like to say

“A nightlight keeps the dark away”

Each happy ever after starts

When we shoo anger from our hearts

Let’s try again to learn new ways

To fill our lives with kinder days !

 

 

 

THERE IS NO END ( 2019 ) 2019/02/01

Each day that I do read God’s Law

I gain so much, far more and more

And as each word comes clear to me

I search for greater clarity.

Now I’ve been at this since I’m small

And barely have a grasp at all

Yet every day I comprehend

To God’s advice, there is no end !

 

 

NOT WITH FEAR ( 2019 ) 2019/01/31

Now I have lived so many years

Years filled with hope and thick with tears

Times when I thought that I was done

And others that were full of fun.

I’ve known the wars and tragedy

And lost those who were dear to me

I left my heart on foreign shore

For those that I shall see no more.

Sometimes  I’ve wondered how I could

Because my heart’s not made of wood

My thanks to God, I’ve come this far

I’m battle weary but unscarred.

I sense that I’ve withstood the test

And hope I’ve given all my best

The end for sure draws ever near

I face my God but not with fear !

 

AMEN.
