TRUST IS A VIRTUE (2019) 2019/03/14

When I was but a little child 

And life was newer, sweeter, mild 

My mother taught me many things 

About the joy that kindness brings 

And why respect’s a two way street 

When often strangers chance to meet 

The earth is precious needing care 

With trust the virtue all must share !

There is an echo that we hear

It speaks to all both loud and clear

Remember for each time we fall

The will one needs to stand up tall

Lies in the grace of God above

Who showers us with selfless love

While all we’re asked our lifetime through

Is to His virtue, remain true !

When I look up into the sky

So full of creatures that do fly

Where images that catch my eye

May mix with clouds here passing by.

Imagination can’t restore

What it is we are searching for

That special something most adore

A secret gift behind each door.

The world is full of guile and guise

Beneath the sea, above the skies

We live in times of great disguise

Truth is hidden amongst the lies !

I’ve sailed upon the seas of life

Both when it’s calm or full of strife

And I can say without a doubt

That safety nests in faith devout.

There is no time to make amends

Nor look about in search of friends

For God demands the total count

Of all we’ve done in what amount,

The good, the bad, the inbetween

Of what we’ve said and what we mean

He understands and will forgive

He is the reason we all live !

Oh would that we might comprehend

How paths in life walk hand in hand

With all we need to understand

Like values held both small and grand.

Tis sad that most share virtue lost

Yet do not pause to count the cost

Or thought to help avoid exhaust

Without some chance to hit defrost !

Where are you going little mouse

Rapid sneaking around each house

In the halls you skirt and scurry

Rushing always in a hurry.

You seem to move so very fast

The world you know is not that vast,

Appears that God has met your need

And granted you some extra speed.

I wonder what you’re looking for

As you do scoot from door to door

Oh little mouse with tiny feet

Sad that your life ends in defeat !

Oh that we might remember well

The classic tales that wisemen tell

Of love and pain and avarice

And joy and fear and fate amiss.

See how the world progresses on

From Eden into Babylon

The changes wrought may interfere

With what you’re taught year after year.

I yearn to taste the glory old

That laces stories I’ve been told

The magic’s gone from all we see

Leaving but mediocrity !

How sad am I that I can’t fly

Like Icarus, I can but try

More sad indeed that when I do

I seem a fool to quite a few.

Tis hard to be just one more guy

Who tried and fell out of the sky

I need to find some path that’s new

To reinvent my old virtue !


SAVE US ( 2013 ) 2013/08/08

Each morning as I brush remains of sleep

From eyes that age with time and easy weep

About the path this life seems bound to keep

In our lost world that values truth too cheap

I pray the God of kindness heeds us soon

To save our simple souls from endless ruin

And bring us home again to life in tune

With virtues shared beneath His sun and moon.
