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  !

Well here we are, alone at last

Into the sea of life we’ve cast

Seeking solutions in our quest

Whilst reaching out to find the best.

May God Himself direct our thought

To teachings old and lessons taught

Let kindness and a gentle heart

In all directions be our start.

Please guide us to eternal peace

Where anger, hate and trouble cease

And God and man begin anew

To relish all the good we do !

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 !

 

THE WINDS OF CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/17

The  sun  is rising  in the  sky

To peer o’er roofs  of homes nearby

And  shine a ray of bright  sunlight

To veil the darkness  of each night.

The winds of chance  are more  discreet

As  they blow  change across the  street

And  every single  breath we  breathe

Is  one  more  memory to  leave !

 

 

 

I’LL TAKE A CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/12

I  hear the  whistle on  the  track

It  seems to shout,  come back,  come back

But  I have  been  this way  before

Not  once,  but  twice or maybe more

And  cannot bear  the lonesome sound

Of  emptiness  which  I  have found.

My  bags are packed  all set to go

I’m  ready for  another  show

I  do not have a  backup  plan

And  may  become  an ” also  ran ”

God  with Your  help,  I’ll  take a chance

Tis  time to  try  to learn  to dance !

Oh my dear child, what can I do

To be of aid and help to you

Please tell me what it is you need

I’ll try to follow as you lead.

Tis time for you to stand up tall

Assume your burden ere you fall

Our God is Witness, heed His word

What e’er is spoke we all have heard !

Oh hallelujah, jump for joy

Because we must our faith employ

To keep us on the proper track

And help us get our mojo back.

Believe in truth it paves the way

To richer, finer, better days

Stand up and let your banners fly

You may reach out and toucn the sky !

 

HELP US GROW ( 2018 ) 2018/07/25

I spy the remnants of my life

Surviving all its stress and strife

I sense the depth of my defense

While reaching out for recompense.

Where are the goals I thought I had

That separate good from the bad,

When will I learn to use my time

In aiding those who dare to climb ?

I find myself caught in the net

That seems to have no exit yet

Please show me, Lord the way to go

To help our lives and values grow !

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR GUESS ( 2018 ) 2018/04/16

At times I’m sure I hear the sound

Of children laughing all around

I hear the patter of their feet

In clitter-clatters from the street.

Oh how I wish that I were there

As joy was rising in the air

Remember how it used to be

When hearts were young and love was free ?

Those days are gone, they won’t come back

Our lives today under attack

Why must we suffer such distress

I do not know, what is your guess ?

The winds of March are queueing up

Before life brews its final cup

The tedium of time is here

Each destination looms unclear

Perhaps tomorrow each may learn

The heritage that we have earned ?

 

THE SAME ( 2017 ) 2017/11/20

There is this thought I entertain

From winter snow to springtime rain

The summer’s warmth, the leaves of fall

Sweet memories we all recall

They fill my heart, my brain implodes

With pleasures set to soon explode.

Oh how I wish that all could see

Our strength in great diversity

The young and old, the halt and lame

The large or small, we are the same !

 

 

SEARCHING ( 2017 ) 2017/10/02

The world we knew,  today becomes the “used to be”

To  leave us with sensations of futility

Times change and fade into this generation lost

Where one can never learn what is the total cost

Farewell to dreamers, writers, artists and their kind

They have a need of safe environments to find !

 

ICONOCLAST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/19

So many children do not play

So many dreams have gone astray

While many values have been trashed

Too many idols now are bashed.

We live in times too tough to bear

There seems no kindness left to share

Our world is dying bit by bit

And everyone is part of it.

Dark clouds are gathering above

Obscuring all our acts of love

Hold on, hold on, the die is cast

Let’s welcome the iconoclast !

 

 

 

 

RESPECT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/22

I’ve told you about my teddy bear

And all of the dreams we two did share

We’ve spoken of my Raggedy Ann

You know I was her favorite fan.

While my mom and dad who loved me so

Taught me my manners and how to show

Kindness and love to all that I greet

How to keep my faith and be discreet.

From my nana dear who was so wise

And my grandpop with those laughing eyes

I learned that life might be a great joy

If simple respect we would employ.

For whom in this world devoid of hope

Could manage to win or learn to cope

Without the aid of the God we know

And all the angels  we’ve met below ?

 

 

 

THE MAGIC’S GONE ( 2017 ) 2017/03/12

Do you wonder what the morrow brings

Besides the tunes that each songbird sings

What would it be like without that song

Perhaps a place one shouldn’t belong ?

Some pleasant words or a  grateful chat

We’d speak about either this or that

And turn away with a smile or two

While friendship’s  shared between me and you.

Oh how I yearn for the days long gone

When friends were those you might count upon

Life used to be full of many dreams

But the magic’s gone or so it seems !
