Faith Is A Powerful Thing

Faithful days and restful nights, he lived through storm and drought.   
A promise fulfilled, the Lord gave him love and salvation. 
I watched him each day pray, worship and serve others devout, 
Taking the hand of Jesus, he walked in light of redemption.
Happily, he would share God’s love with all who would listen.
In dark of midnight hour, he felt the warmth of a rising sun.
Standing at his heart’s door, the light of the Lord’s love glistened,
And turning the knob, a gift to give, his battle had been won.
Problems soon came, illness threatened, from the Lord, away he turned.
Often he would raise his fists, shouting in blame with trembling rage.  
Where light once glowed bright from within, now his anger burned, 
Echoing thoughts of his loss, his weak body on fallen stage.   
Restless were his nights and bitter the endless days of grief.
Forgiveness would take a miracle, so I prayed for a new start.
Unwavering was my diligence, I knew his earthly days were brief. 
Like lightning to the tallest tree, the greatest love at last pierced his heart.  
To the cross, he was carried where Jesus paid the ultimate price.
He surrendered, remembering he was never forsaken.
I felt the peace with his last breath and steadfast love suffice.
Never to be burdened by this world’s sickness, sorrow and sin.  
Given gift of heavenly light, one day I’ll see him again.

Wise Men Still Seek Him Today

W-hen the fullness of time had come, Jesus was born behind an Inn in a cave-like stable.
I-n the Inn there was no room for the Son of God, no room for the Saviour of men.
S-tar was shining so bright above the stable for the shepherds to find their way to Him.
E-ven angels proclaimed His birth to those shepherds "Unto you is born this day."
M-anger is where Mary and Joseph first laid him.  It was filled with hay.
E-very animal there must have known that their Creator had come that day. 
N-o one knew the depth of love God had, to give His Son to dwell among men.
S-ame star guided three kings from the Orient, who studied the stars and heavens.
T-hese wise men from the East came saying "Where is He that is born King"
I-n their hands they brought him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrr.
L-ike these three wise men, wise men still seek him today! 
L-ove is the reason that God sent His only Begotton Son into the world to save us.
S-eeking for you and me, yes God was seeking for us because we had left Him.
E-veryone, yes, all we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone to his own way.
E-ach one has to make his on decision to follow Him or not to follow Him.
K-ing, born to be a King. King of the ages. King of the past. King of the future.

H-eaven, He came from Heaven to earth to show us the right way.
I-niquity, the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
M-elody, He gives us a sweet melody, we sing many songs of praise to Him.
T-ree, A Christmas tree, the love that Jesus had for us, to die on a tree.
O-nly one life and how soon it passes. Only in life can we accept His Love.
D-eliverance, He came from Heaven to preach deliverance to the captives.
A-cknowlege Him and accept Him. Behold now is the accepted time.
Y-ou, Yes, this Christmas Love was for You.  Will You accept this love?

My Thanksgiving Prayer

T	he God of our Fathers, sole author of all life
H	e, by decree placed man above the rest 
A	nd all other creations in his charge for keeping
N	ow and forever, let your truths be written in our hearts
K	eeping man forever mindful of this high place
S	o with gratitude this special day is planned
G	iving thanks and praise to the one true King
I	n you alone our faith and trust will lie
V	alidate our hearts we do implore
I	nundate our lives with grace of light
N	ever turn away from our humble plea 
G	ive us eyes to see and the ears to hear

D	ying, freely, you gave us life; by rising you gave us hope 
A	ll your words and actions teach the ultimate truth
Y	our love alone holds our world in stead

Faith Is A Powerful Thing-

Faith is a powerful thing,
asking for absolute trust.
It allows you to believe 
that you are not all alone,
here in the shadow of death.

In times of persecution,
some souls have little else.

And yet it’s unshakeable.

Praying perpetuates hope,
opening your heart to God.
When you first feel Him enter,
everything in life changes.
Routine tasks take new meaning,
filling existence with purpose.
Until then you felt empty,
languishing in misery.

The love between you and God,
has only strengthened your faith.
It’s His love that sustains you,
not the words of those that say
God is nothing more than myth.

So You Want To Know Me?

So sensationally super; Sagittarius son of John Spence
Pleasantly personable, and matriarch Maud Spence’s son
Enabling, exquisite, eloquent, evolving and enterprising
Naturally nice, no nonsense, and a nutritionist nobleman
Carrot consumer, constant comrade and cold-war veteran
Equitably enlightened, and just an elegant eggnog taster

Jumping Jupiter, a jubilant sundae lover, and just a jewel
Oppresso de liber, optimistically captivating; oratorical
Saintly passionate, succulent salmon sampler; sweetheart!
Exquisitely enchanting, enchantingly amatorious; éclat!
Playful, painstakingly passionate, pajama wearer, patient 
Handsomely helpful handyman, harmonizer of happiness

Sweet as syrup, shining armor off the shelf; savoir-faire!
Red-blooded poetry connoisseur and radioactively lovable!

T~he minds eye closes and envisages the overflowing of true love from one's
H~eart, gravitating to thy One and Only;
E~scaping in conjunction with

B~rackish water adjoining to thy feet; taking note of the wind whispering
E~ver so seamlessly through thine ears while striding upon the seashore.
A~ccompanied by incessant love; keeping hold of hands on no
U~nearthly occasion of relinquishing. Kissing til nightfall loses its color
T~o the openings of daybreak; swimming amongst the creatures of sea
Y~earning to never part, til the extent life ventures to vanish...yet...

O~ftentimes the minds eye reopens to reality; though
F~or the time being

L~et's live every moment as
O~ur last, tracing God first and
V~ersifying our lives to that of the world as such...
E~veryone shall witness and behold The Beauty of L~O~V~E.

~His Name Is Wonderful~

Earned his name~
Suffered all the pain~
Under the hands of men~
Settled with hate against him~

Compassionately he forgave them still~
He loved us then and he always will~
Rising he gave us the right to survive~
Intoxicating he is to all of our lives~
Supplying our each and every need~
Thank you father, For blessing me~

Our king above kings~
Understanding he brings~
Radiant he is indeed~

Living for Christ is the greatest thing~
Only in him may you rest in peace~
Remember each day to trust and forgive~ 
Divided from him is no way to live~

Poetry Soup is the Poetry Palace

P oetry Soup is like a Poetry Palace to me
O rnamented with poems and poets with CREATIVITY,
E veryone bringing INFUSION of literary beauty to it
T ouching the poetic hearts of other poets
R esulting in the INEVITABLE addiction to the soup
Y oung to old everybody thus getting attracted.

P oetry Soup is a sacred place like a temple,church or mosque
A nd nobody should have any ILLUSION about it,
L et us all try together and make it a haven
A haven for all those who loves poetry by heart
C aring to make the palace even beautiful.

E VENTUALLY the palace will be there but not we.

Mountains crumble no more to be 
Oceans of woe since you left me 
Thunder rolls and my heart it breaks 
Humbly life ends, my soul it quakes 
Everlasting grief with no mend  
Reminds me daily, it will not bend

Inconceivable, this pain I bear

My love's not gone, together we'll share 
In lasting glory at Jesus' feet 
Serenity and grace, oh how sweet 
Salvation unites on heaven's shore

Yesterday's gone, tomorrow brings more 
Only a moment in time we wait 
Until we meet at heaven's gate

Stairway To The Stars

Still is the night, deep blue as the sea
 The moon and I keep a rendezvous
  A star reaches out, to light up my way
   I won’t be afraid, at the end of the day
    Rising before me, is a staircase of crystal
     Whispers of angels, are singing a song
      As soft music plays, the soft breezes whistle
       You call out my name, and lead me along

        Tonight is the moment, I’ve waited so long!
         Of wishes I’ve held, to see you again

          The questions I’ve asked, I know you have heard me
           Here and hereafter are just steps apart
            Each step brings me closer.. Oh, be still, my heart!

             So soon I’ll have answers!
              The place I belong, is waiting for me
               All things I have longed for, I’m beginning to see
                Reaching out with your hand, your smile reassures me
                 Stars shine in your eyes, as you wrap me in love

*         *         *         *          *           *           *

People who spend their time devoted to poetry
Optimistic people who can be pessimistic as well
Elegant writers throughout society waiting ever so slowly and patiently to be known
Those who utter their feelings in to a well thought out and admired poem
Spirits with a talent, and who are happy.

Pleasing to read, persuades others to write poems as well
Of all forms of literature poems seem the best
Eccentric writings that inspire, express, and inform
Modern society vs. ancient work
Supercilious poems that express thee

God's Rich Garden

God’s Rich Garden

Gorgeous cascade falling blind
On evergreen slopes of pines
Down to silver lake gone quiet
Stealing into a river feeding country wide.

Rich fields of crops and orchards dance
Imploring cultivation to abundance
Caressed by the sun’s warm presence
Highlighted by the colorful flowers’ fragrance.

Garden planted on a beautiful spring morning
Anticipating the presence of inhabitants to fill
Resort like land that would inspire the shaping of His will
Dedicated to the happiness of His offspring
Endowed with His power to governing
None other than the Kingdom of Heaven, eternal spring.

Bridge Over Troubled Waters

If finding yourself means going it alone, You shouldn’t—a fact that is painfully plain. Need is a naturally human bemoan, A collaboration helps you remain, a Friend to those who also have needs to atone. I'm clearing a path, a push straight ahead, Sailing stress free in my life stem to stern. Right where I should be, clarity widespread, Behind me no wake or substantive churn. Like all things in life from which one must glean, A period of time flowing under Bridge where it is swept quite far out to sea, Over vastness like far distant thunder Troubled and troubles, mere seconds they flee Water healing life’s fires placed asunder. I promise you one fact I now cherish Will power alone is power itself, so Ease your mind with the faith you’ll not perish Your success assured, fear placed on the shelf Mind over matter, peace you’ll inherit. © David Wegman 2014 Submitted for Roy Jerden’s Poetry Contest: “Bridge Over Troubled Water - Word Acrostic”

I Love You Eternally

I wrap lovingly my arms around you…

Listen to my heartbeat and in my Divine Love no more feeling blue

Over and over again I say that I care unconditionally for you

View in and out my unfolding love… its beauty outpours like a torrent of rain

Everyday, I hold you. I’m your strength in trials and in pain

You are always and forever so precious in my sight

On tempest of life, I will always be at your side 

Uplifting your spirit: I will make the sun shines so bright

Exhale your doubts as I do my part

Take my hands and walk with me with all your heart

Exhilarate as you head on to the fulfillment of your dreams

Resuscitate your crumbled hope

Nestle in my loving arms while I relentlessly sing you the untiring hymn

Always keep in mind that you are forever my dearest one

Let my love set ablaze in you and keep our strongest bond

Loving you eternally, I do acclaim

You and only you: deep in my heart, you are a boundless fame

On That First Christmas, Love Came Down

Christ is born
He's in the manger
Reigning from His humble stall
Immanuel, come to reedeem us
Salvation, here for one and all
Tenderly his mother holds him
Men will seek the newborn King
Angels praise the God of glory
Shepherds, wise men, gifts to bring

Love from Heaven shines now on us
Over hill and valley bright
Victory's song rings through the ages
Ever since that blessed night

A House Is Not A Home

Another day passes yet here I stand
Home is somewhere that my heart can land
Open your eyes and you shall see
Unleash your spirit and learn to be free.

Sometimes the world just beats me down
Everything vanishes and no one’s around
I don’t understand why this happens to me
Seeing then understanding seems to be key.

Now that my heart knows where to go
Only one thing I shall need to know
Today will pass regardless of what I do
Another step closer to understanding what’s true.

Home is a place where your heart feels safe
One step closer to reaching this place
Many words are spoken yet few are heard
Everyone knows home is more than a word.

Happiness (acrostic)
Happiness is found within not in people and things

Acceptance of the present regardless of what fears/ inner demons you may be facing

Persistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

Patience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials and tribulations life often presents to us, unexpectedly

Inside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a smile on your face

Never give up on yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart and a positive mind set

Endless love & happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

Spirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural state of being

Smile in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward.  Live as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow :) :) :)

when days are dark friends are few

When passion fails, love remains
Hills fell and thus will your obstacles
Even if it seems impossible
No one can withstand possibilities

Day after day try not to lose hope     
Abilities pops up like mushrooms
Yielding to negativity isn't helping
Sooner we need to change our mind set

A day sets with new possibilities
Right now it's time i wake up and-
Erase the past that holds me back

Digging down my soul revealed a truth
Ambiguous visions translate to nothing
Rivalries suppresses innovative minds
Killing negativity gives birth to success

Finding my passion and dwell on it 
Release the zest that keeps me hustling
Intimidation by success is lethal 
Erecting a tower with positive things help 
Neither the storm of disappointments can win
Destroying a clear vision is uphill 
Surrender a vivid mission is cowardice

Active mind ignite uncontainable victory
Realization of a dream starts with one step
Endeavour to take a step forward each day

Fulfillment doesn’t limit industrious men’s vigor  
Evicting indolent thoughts he does best
While they rest, i keep busy because I can rescue me!

The Message

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done, I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine Like the late great who came before my time I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life Now that ain't right! As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite Night after night Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight Although, we'll be all right They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right Instead we're the light to a lying greed That will enlighten life to a brand new seed A man of God indeed Freed from the Son that bleeds Like the summer breeze He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe The air that please A satisfaction like the birds and the bees My word's words are the keys That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy So shall our comradery That will bring comfort to a struggling society A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity Unifying the physics of theory That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy Similar to the Cosby X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality Like life's calamity And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically However, I've discovered a system That can mathematically destroy ignorancy And turn our state of mind intellectually I elect that He (God) selects me to be And be that man who may lead this community So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny Like we were destine to be We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we. Because we are... The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous Our potentials are endless And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this So it's time we put a stop to this The biggest enemy of self And that's envy and jelousness Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is A promised made sealed with a kiss Knowing this Is the next best thing since "In the beginning" In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!

Who am I?
Question indeed!

  W-eaned from tender 
age,in noble family of ten.
  H-urt by the demise of 
the tube that brought 
me into this theater of 
struggles and pains.
  O-rdered about by the 
whimps of this 
world,facing the hurdles 
of life daily from 
cradle,never giving up 
  A-fine young man of 28 
I am,who has the 
experience and wisdom 
of the aged.
  M-astering the arts of 
life-learning from lessons 
of life's victims and 
didactic poems 'cos man 
of fame I intend to be for 
I bear the name Bob.

  I-lost my poetic gift at a 
stage but recovered it in 
poetrysoup for invisible 
entities say a 
lesser being I shall be,but 
another encourages me 
to move on,for great is 
one who comes out of 
the shackles of life 
undeterred for this is who 
I am.

Though I did not want anyone to know

Helping people is what I try to do so I can grow

Even when it is tough I realize I help people not for show

Self involvement is a must a way to make things make sense

Eager to do things I become sometimes dense

Caring about the things I love is what really can help my choice

Revealing my secret to you I will keep my poise

Even when the time comes I will not be spoiled because of my heart

The secret to doing things is make it a great memory so it will not part

Moment and time pass
Yet there is still struggle and task
Quicken by what I see and feel
Uniquely I want to away flee
Intent of my heart is to me a gentle breeze
Engraved in my heart in a world-tragic
Total quietness and sacred serenity
Peaceful like as it is in Zion the mount of ruby
Lost in it and never do I wish to found
Archaic it may seem but listen to the sound 
Caption of it as it flow in your heart it is your thought
Eternal would I want to be in my thought but staring at me is reality

Haste great messenger to mirth's tribes and throngs
Announce the old year's ending like our epic songs
Properly written poorly told, poorly written in translation
Purge each heart and prime each purposed hope again
Youth and wisdom will meet matured in one refrain

Nature reminds us, everything true a second chance is given
Emancipate all dreams, break the chain on every heart
Welcome the new beginning and a vision of heaven

Yield neither courage nor faith when life falls apart
Endeavor to rearrange the pieces into a fresh vision
Appraise it, build value in it, share it, grow it
Reach beyond the self, and invest it with the Master's spirit. 

                                  Trumpeting desires the new year calls
                                  Onward to your purpose for time still swiftly runs

                                  All men dream, but few follow its course
                                  Let it ring of heart and soul, its happy source

I am never going to leave your side

TROUBLED friend who's down and out
WATERS won't drown, It's time to shine

I will lay it all down to keep you sailing
WILL see you embrace dreams one day
EASE your sails friend your getting closer

If only we had reserved some

My how it does seem to fly,

Especially at those times it’s discovered

Pride of the nations is he who considers
All peoples of the world as sisters and brothers;
Keeps always ready to help the poor and weak;
Illuminates their lives, regardless of Latin or Greek;
Sacrifices for them, and for their welfare stands;
Tries all his means to save them and holds their hands
And lets not the flood of tears occupy their land,
Nor lets it turn the habitations of their hopes into sand!!!

Kaleidoscopic colours of your affectionate heart paint the

Prayers For Lori


Peace, the kind the Master gives
Requires faith that He will provide.
Ask all things, as according to His will
Yielding to Him, your fears and doubts.
Enjoy the comfort only He can provide,
Rest in His love, as that of Father and child.
Serenity can be found beyond understanding.

Forge hope, a stronghold of faith, yet unseen.
Offer thanksgiving for God’s wonderful blessings.

Riveting words written, imprint vivid visions in our minds.
Often leaving a brand upon our soul. Majestic places, heartfelt
Memories, and feelings oh so tender, are created, forever treasured in
A special, sacred place all our own, where we can always embrace,
Nearby, or faraway, outloud or in secret, shared or kept to ourselves.
Cherrished deeply, just a word, a verse, or a phrase written of 
Epic grandure. Each word, kept silent or spoken, is a riveting romance secured.

The good heart

Heaven and earth bares me a witness
Only heaven and earth bares me a witness
That righteousness is greatness

Kings and queen might be ignorant
But I careless
I am the son of God
The father of the fatherless

Cloth in apparel of faithfulness
Washed in the blood of  kindness
Only heaven and earth bares me a witness
For that is greatness

Let mankind deny me
But this does not change me
Ye men of vain imagination
Who do not like good direction

Why won’t you perish in your illusion?
You harden your heart
And will not listen to my instruction

Ye heart of fools
Who should be instructed with whips
You flattering lips
Your evil deeds will end soon

Like never before
Ye shall be no more
Surly the material you trust
Will not last
They will all go to the dust

The Seasons Of Life

The Seasons Of Life

The happy days from long ago
Heaven gained or heaven lost
Every year brings new dimensions

Some words to live by, a goal to win
Each precious day a breath of time
And the love that fills every day
Seeking guidance, trust in His wisdom 
On life’s troubled pathway	
No mountain shall be to high
So birthdays are the gateway

Of thoughts and kindred feelings
For day by day all through the years

Like a rainbow in the skies
In sharing treasures of the heart
For the joy of the fullness of living
Every minute we seek His Love

Never be it said that new beginnings can’t be obtained
The endless quest for happiness and futures ordained
Surely worn us all down – books scoured for inspiration
Folk Lore/Yarns embraced for our life’s path preparation
Memory, an eager companion to chastise us and torment
Time we’ve been allotted, wasted on slights to ferment
Looking to bring some relief to others in their dire need
This is what brings joy to souls rich in the art of forgiving 
Looking in the mirror, inwardly: What do we see and striving
To portray to an outside world? In ignorance, we aim to please
Others are equally busy with their lives; sense of a new lease
On Life. Each calendar marking public festive holidays to celebrate
Thus, in effect wishing our time away, wasted on endless freight
Of regrets; only to be put aside briefly during this Holy Season

SUMMERY: A message within a message (two unrhymed lines), therefore My New Year's Wishes:
1. Looking to bring some relief to others in their dire need
2. Of regrets; only to be put aside briefly during this Holy Season

BTW:  Ethiopia, Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, the Republic of Macedonia, and the Republic of Moldova celebrate Christmas on what in the Gregorian calendar is January 7

My Delivery

I was born with this name 
A name that cannot be moved.
Through my struggles and through my pain
These shackles I shall remove.
Dignified in all my ways 
Eminent proven that can't be replaced.
I am a true man of virtue
That cannot be measured by time or space.

I'm a Star of my own 
Reflecting the rays of my thrown.
Magnificent and Majestic 
In the land of milk and honey, I am the backbone.
Often misunderstood, 
Confound and misconstrued.
Even in contempt of their judgement
My adulation infatuation will remain intact for my brood!

My love is undenying
Everlasting and undying.
Unreplaceable, indestructible
My fable inspires that transcends to be noble.
The King of my castle
A fraction define from a point of a decimal
Denoting in the tenth power 
That represents the commandments of my counsel.

In translation...
I'm a man unrecognized by his emotions
Yet his word's expression
Forms a principle which defines in connotation.
My concentration
Concerns to adjourn any iniquitous Interpretation. 
Adjudicated as if uneducated
Yet  their mind's unable to define the intonation of my elucidation. 

So therefore there's no question!
That I am...A son reflected by his own creation.
In his own reflection 
My third eye indicates the gift of this phenomenal articulation. 
So as my motivation
My delivery will continue to build in its meticulous manifestation.
A man that will man up
To whom, I will claim to recognize his own dejected aberration.

My conquistador

Evening starts with crystal shadows of engrossed love,
Vanished on the second street I feel no touch,
Everything that surrounds me is going there above,
Ready to display all the splendid air as such,
Yet I do not know what lies there in the sky.

Traveling farther into this vivid epic dream 
I feel my arm is magnetized by his embrace.
Miracle I still exist, I am there, I do not scream.
Easily I fall into this eternal space.

“I will always fall in love with you on and on.”

Lonely I am no more, since I had found my one true star.
One that shines over billion galaxies with pure light,
One that is always besides me and leaves me with no scar,
Knows me and protects me like he is my strong knight.

“And we will be forever together 
Time is just for the two of us.”

Yet I do not know his name but I love him more
Over the mountains, over the black-blue see,
Underneath the earth, right into the core!

My conquistador you have conquered me all,
You and your soul ready to devour my entire tree.

Gorgeous is this consequence of my choosing 
Rather inspirational than a matter of loosing,
Enjoying mystical minutes with my one true half
You are the one who always makes me laugh.

Stones and iron can’t erase this eternal feeling
Thrusting them on us won’t change a single thing,
Once the door has opened everything is healing
None can stop this craving thought of spring.
Entire life will start on Earth one more time.

“I will always fall in love with you again and again.”

“And we will be forever happy
Misery will never come to us.

Constantly I want from you just peaceful music
One that comes from the bottom of your heart,
Million kisses received made me ecstatic, so realistic,
People will say that what we have is so fantastic,
Love, happiness eternal gift that lies upon our inside
Emerges to other space unseen somewhere dark,
Time shall be forever on our trusty side,
Everything will be tremendously good if we are together.

Staying Happy, Enjoying Life

Growing old to some may mean dying;
Relinquishing the attributes of youth.
Once we become seventy or eighty,
What more of life's left; is this true?
I feel young and happy on the inside
No regrets, I've been blessed, each day's new.
Grey hairs and wrinkles may adorn me

Oh, but I still feel life's joys, just like you!
Life may have made me a lot slower, but
Don't give up on me yet; I've more living to do!

My Lost Fear

Most of the time, I ‘m  coward,
You may ask my mom or my dad.

Let God guides you and in Him, put your trust,
Over all your troubles and doubts.
Sing praises to Him to pacify yourself and relax,
Those are all things they give me as pieces of advice.

For He is always there and He never forsake,
Everyday be strong and hold on to your faith;
And they added: be a good person always,
Rest  assured that He will take all your fears away.

A Heart For Change


Alas the day is done, the load has been heavy and the burdens are so many. 
I can rest now for a bit, stretch out and gain my composure, not for long though as the morning dew will soon be upon my shoulders.
The weight starts slow as daybreak nears but as the rays of glistening sun snap through the sharp cold air, I will once again feel the pressure mount. One swing at a time as young and old alike, try to master their game, uphill, downhill, it’s always the same.
I long for the rains to come when I can sleep the day away and without disturbances I will lay dormant for a while. Covered with the wet of winter I will patiently wait. 
I know before long spring will come once again and I the 9th green will be played over and over and over, watching that little ball spin.
I hear the chatter saying “I’m tough” but they didn’t know me when I was what golf pros call the rough.
When folks swung through me then the words I heard were a lot more than just chatter, they were words of anger and even threats to never play again. “Oh well it’s just a game” some would say, and up to the green they would go, Oh how I longed backed then to be seen, and just look at me now, I am the 9th green.
“It’s not where you have been”, I have heard some say, but rather where you are headed is what’s important, “nice par, have a great day.”

Happy Thanksgiving

Having family and turkey is the sauce for the dressing.
All together giving warm wishes and especially blessing.
Prayers are the dearest thing to share even if apart.
Prayers whether said out loud or quietly in your heart.
Your spirit shared with others is a great gracious start.

Take heed of what you have been given each day that you live.
Heaven hears every word and thought that your soul does give.
Answers don’t always come the way we desire them too.
Never underestimate that they are heard above the blue.
Kingdoms of glory have no monetary goal to claim.
Spirits blessed in honor and true love has no shame.
God is here, he hears, yes he is alive though many doubt.
Insincerity of your inner peace will have no known clout.
Victory of all that will be given comes from your heartfelt soul.
Insecurity of your spirit shall defeat and buries your life’s’ goal.
Now warm your essences with peace and love for humanity.
God has set forth a plan for his glory and our life-forces eternally.

Giving of that which is due,
       Granting what is from the heart true.
 Right is this simple action,
       Run then from careless distraction.
 Attitude is that which is at the center,
       Apathy must one not allow to enter.
 Thanksgiving is this central theme,
       Therefore this all should scream.
 Insolence must quickly disappear,
       Introspection is what is dear.
 Totality is needed in expression,
       Timidity should be in regression.
 Uplifting for those who comply,
       Understood by all who try.
 Depression is, therefore, gone,
       Dependence must be on God alone. 
 Expression is the desired end,
       Excitement to you it will send.

A spirit one with the Universe contest

Step away from all you know,
Travel far and just let go,

Appreciate where you are going,
Imagine yourself simply just flowing,

Rain is not water it’s the feeling of being rejuvenated,
Whispers of love are like the wind but illuminated,

All the pleasures of life are now one continuous feeling,
Your breathing has become endless breaths of utter healing,

Telescopes aren’t needed for you now dance in vast galaxies,
Oceans are no longer separated but are now part of you and me,

Thirst is obsolete for desires are permanently fulfilled,
Humanity's longings have been instantly stilled,

Everlasting joy bubbles out of your voice,
Saturated in peace without it being a choice,

Tiredness is now lifted for you are energized and restored,
Angel’s wings surround you electrifying every shore,

Repositioned to partake in everlasting delight, 
Since the night is now day and the day consumes the night.

Happy New Year

Hail happy morn, fresh blooming now as a fragrant flower
All golden streams I see your sun, rising sweetly this hour
Presenting your new found pearl a first day and a new year
Polished, serene and full of tranquil light the lucid air
Yesteryear is dead and gone, new today again man dreams

Nestled in your petals clasp from which love's pure nectar streams
Empower us again, for fogs and winters mist has failed
Wellspring of hope and love behold, by God's decree prevailed

Yon golden light has warmed our hearts, and we again rejoice
Eternal dreamers in resolutions we chart new stairs
Arouse to prospect beyond each star, abandon earthly cares
Resound your promise like the sun, permit our lusty voice.

[Inspired by L'nass Shango's HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL]
New morning on warm wings of light I rise
Golden as your swan bright sun
To see the world with dawn's fresh blooming eyes
The shadowed night now is done
The sand begins to flow again, the clock
Another circle shall sweep
From the barn chimes an accurate cock
Stirred the world from foggy sleep

The new year is began, fresh dreams abroad
The bells all peal with God's love
The potter gathers again each grailed shard
Like winds gather clouds above
And each field seeded with dreams shall flourish
And each vessel overflows
For earth's satisfaction from needs cherished
In heaven's kingdom now still grows.

My Vision, Her Dream

Mentoring a talent, gifted and mature, way beyond her years
Anchoring a show, on television, serenely she appears.
Narrates the story of Mirabai, I sadly missed the premier
Audio cassettes get released, by an accomplished career.
So very beautiful, yet her soul, is so crystal clear
I feel incompetent to counsel her, if I should be sincere.
Painstaking and meticulous, she wants to be number one
Radiating eyes with a determined look, even while she’s having fun.
Afraid I am that in her quest, not to be undone
Sashay away would she, towards the starting gun?
Aside would she cast her gift away; weighing a thousand ton?
Dream her dream; I hope she does, and reach out for the sun.

No regrets, I've been blessed, each day's new.
Grey hairs and wrinkles may adorn me

Oh, but I still feel life's joys, just like you!
Life may have made me a lot slower, but
Don't give up on me yet; I've more living to do!

Beautiful melody permeating the air
Instilling precious feelings of joy and
Rapturous bliss that fills me with
Delight and ecstasy as I listen to its
Sweet serenade filling the airwaves
Overwhelming my being with
Nature's soothing music of the 
Glorious splendour of birdsong

A Soul Called Soul

I’m trapped in the American struggle/ 
Surrounded in the alcoholic drug addicted jungle/ 
In my soul called soul I seem to unknowingly look for trouble/ 
Yeah am I the only one to truly see our invisible chaotic bubble? / 
Am I the only one to truly live in while I realize the hidden pains in our own ghetto living rubble? /
 I see in what I still saw of the pains at the same time I hear the alcoholic mumbles/
 Like a burnt cracker over a uncooked cookie I still see the culture crumble/ 
I see the staggering, I see the swerving and I see thy own stumbles/ 
Still yet I am crawling out the dirt like an ant spreading my wings in the sky like the bees bumble/
 It’s when I knew I was a soul called soul/ 
In my soul called soul I am in the super bowl/ 
Seven hundred seventy-seven now I can’t let thy football fumble/ 
I am not going to let thy ring leader lead me in the circus no more, I am no longer an elephant Dumbo/ I’m here to stay not to go/ I been down that same road too many times before/
 I know what it’s like at the bottom, I hit it straight rock ,yeah I been that low/
 now pains of my life I outgrow/it’s when I knew I was a soul called soul 
In my soul called soul/ I hang on not to my enemies nor my friends but my own inner foes/
 I got no true friends, I got no true bros/ I got no true women, I got no hoes/ 
I don’t even know if I will even make it to be thirty-four/ 
I worry about alcoholic danger in the hood every time I walk out my front door/ 
I thank God I’m not rich and thank him for the experience of being dirt poor/ 
I thank him for the fact that I no longer have to steal from the local store/ 
I thank him for the simple fact that I can do simple everyday chores/ 
I remember a time when I was in a prison cell where even death itself felt like a bore/
 until one day something great pick me up off the prison floor……..that was a time when I know I was a soul called SOUL/
 I know my truck of life was ready to take it’s damage when it can still pull its own toll/
 I knew my boat of life was ready to go against high winds with a broken bow/ 
I knew I was ready when I can go against waves 100 feet high go under and still row/
 if not then I make the surf board roll/ The storms comes like shadow hidden in the skies undergrowth/ I’m not only floating I’m also flying through them both/
 I am no longer empty with darkness I am filled with light shone/ 
I am no longer alone, I am force of many through word flow/ 
I am a prophet among my own/ words put together like no other only I condone/ 
I say it in a unique tone/ 
I’m going to make it past the internet and cell phones/ 
I am the one, I am by a higher power chose/ 
These problems in life I will outgrow/ 
I will overcome being just another SOUL CALLED SOUL….

Fly Away My Angel

Today....... we have to say goodbye one last time to you,
For us, your children, it has to be the hardest thing we've had to do!
I know you have left this body before us and yet it seems oh too real,
So many people who loved you,"praying for what they must feel."
We knew this day would come but not's way to soon.
Begging God for his mercy...."please help us by healing you."
The sun is shining like a warm July,
The patriotic flag waving high in the sky!
I can't help but think, maybe he did save you?
What actually went wrong, why did it happen so soon?
Our lives will never be the same, we'll never talk to you or even hear your voice,
As of today or even  tomorrow we will never have that choice.
You have been the teacher of God's word and a child of his grace,
I'm sure the gates of heaven opened up and the Angel's have rejoiced.
But here on earth we are left with the memory and a pain I can't explain,
We cry for no reason, we don't understand what's left to gain?
Car's are lined up around the block, we look back as far as we can see,
Our Mom is so blessed by people she touched and her life a legacy.
Now entering your final place of rest, we're put to the test,
Bishop Jesse begins to say...what a beautiful day she gave us! For God's child to rest.
He say's we are "Celebrating" life of such a great woman of God,
She was a fishermen of men and a teacher of his love,
Her great hope was for all to follow his word.....let us pray,
So many turned their lives over to Jesus on this day.
Amen! She is still bringing people to know him even in his place of rest.
So to you Mom; Fly away my Angel! you are the best!!

O Holy Night

O    On this one Holy Night let us remember....

H    Honor His teachings, where renewal begins
O    Open arms wide on this holiest of nights
L     Leave behind pride, shedding vengeance and blight
Y     Yielding thy mind to forgiveness, not to blame

N    Neighbor or stranger, all one and the same
I     Imagine the power of such kindness and love
G    Guided by faith, His example above
H    Hold love for your neighbor, reach out with your hands
T    Tonight pray for peace, for all nations, across all lands

Live Laugh Love

Live your life like there's no tomorrow.
It's not healthy to wallow in self pity and sorrow.
Visualize your happiness and let it be so.
Exercise life's success and don't throw opportunities out the window!

Laughing is good for the soul,
And going without a good laugh can take it's toll.
Unselfishly cheer up your fellow man.
Gratefully you'll receive a number one fan.
Help those in need to succeed and don't succomb to greed!

Love with all your might so that person is always smiling from ear to ear.
Overcome those demons at night so they'll disappear.
Visualize your happiness and let it be so.
Exercise life's success and don't throw opportunities out the window!

They Never Knew

The truth of her was never told to many 
She was to be a hidden mystery to even the old
To understand her there will not be any 
For there is a secret in her heart and soul
She came here with a passion
She will not leave till its done
Her hands are blessed with every mission
She will look different to none
They will never know the truth 
I gave her more than they even thought 
She comes from my very roots
With greatness of many sorts
I know her inside out
And I know they will never see
There will be great power in her mouth 
She is Him that was nailed to a tree
They were always blind to her ways
They never thought she was worth
In her is a number of days
That is crucial to this earth
She will go out and seek 
She will bring to Me the lost
Her humble being will be meek
She is the mystery of the Cross
Her wealth is not of the flesh
I wrote her story before she came
She is a remover of stress
On her will be no blame
I gave her more wealth than all your cities
I know her heart indeed
She will take My name to many countries
It is for her that I have Bleed
They prayed to me for the answer
She held me high above
I sent her so they will know forever
It is because of my love
They underestimated her wrongly 
I told her to see them through
I gave her power strongly 
Yet still They Never Knew
She is here with purpose of Mine
She will do it with a great speed
She will show to even the blind 
This is my child with whom I am well Pleased

G	ather up faith, hope, charity and love, adorn them as your shield
H	old on tenaciously in the storms, for more precious than gold, you are

What Easter Means To Me

When I saw him upon the cross my heart and mind did ache.
How I could allow this to happen, I must do something, I thought.
An Angel came into my soul, saying he would be reborn.
Three days, then he will rise up into heaven, not to forsake.

Easter day will be remembered for the day he rose to be sought.
Angels will rejoice his rise into his father’s kingdom newly born.
Stories of healings, miracles performed; journeys he did make.
Telling of his sacrifice for all humankind, our salvation bought.
Evil finally destroyed as the earthly waters and mountains are torn.
Revelations tells of his ultimate glorious return, for our soul’s sake.

My soul embraced promises the Angels sang and continually taught.
Every hour, minute, I watched my heart sank into painful scorn.
Another Angel came to me, said do not falter his word, or break.
Never forget the love and companionship, all the happiness he brought.
Sincerity and remembrance is what our lord desires with blessings to adorn.

Take these words and sights to the future; tell them it was no mistake.
Our Lord in Heaven, Gods Son, will return; when final battle is fought.

My children are forgiven all sins; listen closely for the sound of Gabriel’s horn.
Every believer with true love, will live forever, there will be no way, for to fake.

Good Morning

God's divine love in new mercies feathers the dawn
Offerings uplifting so the spirit may soar
Over cliffs of trials from caves of despair drawn
Devotion and praise like daylight freckling the shore   

Mind renewed and mortal frame endowed to reclaim
Open vistas of life's eternity, day shines
Righteousness and redemption streaming from his name
Nurtured by God a new peace fill our wakened minds
Inspiring vision for life and hope in splendour
Nature and divinity gives courage, so labor
Good morning means a fresh start with God, so rejoice 

Wing truth and justice into human heart, wing peace
Over earth's remote bounds. The morning comes fair
Rested and renewed, I greet you as to a feast
Laden with fellowship - and glad willingness to share
Destiny in our purpose, strong faith in our dare

She replied , yes, Yes!
I love you forever 
and want a wedding dress!

Hero (double acrostic, end line word)

Hostility does not deter the hero                    He

Endures the pain of arrows without an            Echo

Ringing complain wherever he                       Roams

Oneness of heart with his dreams he              Observes.

Natures Treasure Chest

Natural glory is ours from Heaven’s sun.
Always continuing blessed from above.
True vivid colors to see lots of fun,
United and bonded out of God’s love.
Rebirthing of blooms again and again,
Explicit beauty flows from every petal.
Spiritually glowing, glistening again and again,

Toward the sky shining like metal,
Rewards not only from beauty alone,
Each of us enjoys the bounty that we eat.
All the fruits and vegetables so well known,
Sensual tastes and smells a special treat.
Up from the root nutrient flow,
Releasing so many flavors that cannot be weak,
Exploding with vitamins to make us glow.

Challenge not the prizes from our earth.
Health is a treasure we all should seek.
Each of us should have had since birth.
Search for hearty, silver and gold every week.
Toil not; devour Mother Nature’s worth.

Will I See You Tomorrow

Tomorrow is another day
Outstretch your wings and fly
Milestones can be reached
Only if you beleive in thy self
Relic in the thought
Relax your mind and soul
Or it just won't happen
Will be put off and forgotten
Instead of achieving set goals
So bask under the sun
Ask for a little help from above
Never doubt  miracles from God
Or question His motives
To make things happen
Hunger will disapate
Every plate shall be filled
Rejoice and sing aloud
Dance to your hearts content
Another sunrise is coming
You're going to just love to see

Just getting by

Ever wonder why the world says your just getting by with life. When your heart is full of love and your life is empty. How do you get a flame of desire started? Even when its not right. Knowing your heart wants someone so badly and your burning with desire to just have their touch. No matter how small. Everyday you sit frozen with fear. Never taking a chance to even see if there's a chance for love to happen. Always listening to the voices inside your head telling you that there's no chance of ever having any kind of connection. When all you have to do is Shut off those voices and take a chance. Walk up and say here I am world. I'm not prefect but I deserve to be loved and cherished. I'm not afraid of getting burned by love. Life is more then just getting by. Life is always standing up for what you believe in and showing that you care about what the future has to offer. Telling the past to go to hell and Your a better person for going though everything and You have learned form your mistakes. Telling the World Your happy being you.

Sympathy For The Blind

Darkness may come, may it yet pass
Wars may be upon us, may they not last
Ignorance may blind us, may it not lead
Needless hate may end us, may it not succeed
Doors are opening wide, may we pass through
Leave evil behind, now or never give it it's due
Irrational folly can not be forgiven this time
No more will we not stop to report your crime
God willing, evil will lose, yes... where do I sign?

Hope to each one and warmth to embrace our spirits

Everyday by using 
Common sense
You can recycle soda

Brown Sugar

**Double Acrostic**

****Brown Sugar****

Bourbon complexion small tight frame, fancy.
Rhythm sensual, untamed yet so classy. 
Overall a perfect ten, infectiously sassy!  
Wily this temptress, like the modern day  
Nefertiti, I kneel before this empress

Sweet never sour, passionate to the core.
Understanding, we've built a strong rapport.
Glamorous, she is everything and more. Her
Alluring imperfections most impressive.
Rapturous, I yearn for her defection!

A Seeker´s Seeking

A man is sleeping in a bed
Sleeping , when he should be awake
Evolving a body in coldness, when he wakes up
Emotions of a curious mind
Kind thoughts of a distant happiness
Ears stretching to the childrens laughing outside
Rules of eternity struggles with his lonely mind
Sanity´s sanctuary is the longing of his heart
Swimming in oceans of philosofies
Embracing the Hope, when he´s looking at the sky
Enough faith to let the hope grow
Killing old selfpity of the past
Irresistable in his affection on humble hearts
Nagging novice noise is far away
Glad, when he finally found the right ways at last

a constent battle

At the point of no return,
Beyond all hope,
Can't turn back if i tried,
Don't love this anymore,
Everyone stares,
Forever with dread,
Got to leave here,
Happiness is out of the picture,
Innocence left behind to die,
Judging eyes,
Keep moving on,
Lost without a soul,
Mother is gone,
Nowhere to be found,
Open doors close,
People stop and stare
Quiet screams follow, 
Resisting a constant battle,
Seduction is trying to pull me in,
Trying to resist,
Unable without your help,
Verge of tears,
Wanting hope,
X-ed out of life,
You have the same battle,
Zooming past your head.

Open hearts,
Violence be gone
Every where there is faith

Influence by Christian Cepeda 7th grade

Intoxication.....good or bad?
Not good if you're intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol. My
Future is important to me. Young ones,
Little ones, old ones. The
United States should be drug and alcohol free,
Even if it takes a lifetime.
No one should ever do drugs or become intoxicated.
Change can happen but it starts with you!
Everyone can make a difference.

Compassionate beauty of her courageous spirit chases away blackened clouds, setting the world

Ablaze with a kaleidoscopic array of the fireworks of happiness-the graceful, awe-inspiring

Reflection of her extraordinarily passionate heart-her gentle presence the angelic colouring of magic in our greyed

Lonely world, the warmth of her touch healing the scarred, opening eyes to hope filled dreams and making hearts smile 

Alive with laughter yet eternally humbled at the immeasurable blessing of having her inspiring footprints in our lives

Written for Carla Nortje, 
One of the most beautiful people in our word
and a truly amazing friend.

The happy days from long ago
Heaven gained or heaven lost
Every year brings new dimensions

Some words to live by, a goal to win
Each precious day a breath of time
And the love that fills every day
Seeking guidance, trust in His wisdom 
On life’s troubled pathway	
No mountain shall be to high
So birthdays are the gateway

Of thoughts and kindred feelings
For day by day all through the years

Like a rainbow in the skies
In sharing treasures of the heart

I think of the years between us and 
Little snippets of our journey floods my mind.
Life and all it's roads at times difficult

Allowing us the chance to change, to be remade for the
Last of all our tales shall be of our triumphs- 
Ways we conquered our self doubt, our impulses
Always giving way to that better me, better you
Yet you walk these roads with a heavy heart
Soul weary and feet blistered and I say to you

Be not afraid of what s to come
Everyone is given only what he or she can bear

Yes I say to it all - the pain, our tears, the laughter
Our fears,  - the joy and all these years between us
Underneath it all there lies our blessing and 
Redemption in the form of this friendship

For the mistakes, the errs are not erased but" Our Father In Heaven"
Remember is the sweetest prayer
In it we find the mercy he tempers our punishment
Even as we are wrong, we are in his light
No man can take your soul, so walk
Don't run to the end of your life, when it is done, he is there.

Unto these schemes renew
The temper held in sway;
This time, listen, like the murmur
Of your heart; so tender,
So subtlety does it keep time with
The Universal notion:
If Angels cross the oceans,
if Devils soar the skies;
if solace seeps the surface,
How shall you travel?
I am told,
Nightly growing old,
Accept it.

You judge me because I don’t have the nicest things.

Christ Child Born Of A Virgin

When the angels sang so long ago, the world was forever changed!


Christ's birth
Heralded by angels
Reverently singing
Inexplicable good news
Savior born this night
Tidings of great joy

Come, let us see this thing which the Lord
Hath made known unto us
Infant, so tender and mild
Lord of Lords
Deity above all others

Born in the city of David
Opening a virgin's womb
Reconciling man
No end to His Kingdom

Open your heart to Him
Fall prostrate before Him

Adore Him

I say unto you
Give praise to Him
Intone prayers to Him
Now is the day of salvation

A Baby's Plight

A life just beginning, and so unaware;
Born he will not be--it just isn’t fair!
Oh, can’t you just see him as he struggles so,
Resisting the chemicals as inward they go?
Too bad, for his mom didn’t want him to live,
Instead to abortion this body did give.
Oh, listen to this voice and heed to this cry:
Now’s time to stop this ere more babies die!
Abortion is murder, that can’t be denied,
But they call it “birth control,” and they have just lied,
Or “family planning” or some other name;
Regardless, it’s taking life and it is insane.
To call it one’s freedom or call it pro-choice
Is forgetting one person and his right to a voice.
One person, that baby, that life that’s been thwarted,
No choice has he had, for he was aborted!
And now his blood cries from his heavenly home
Because Jesus took him so he’d not be alone.
On high he now dwelleth, and in his new place
Rests forever from those who’d bring him disgrace.
Torn from his mom’s body in violent haste,
In fire he was thrown there along with the waste.
Only now his torn body has been all glorified,
Never more to be butchered through man’s greedy pride.
Americans, please listen to the babies’ dire plight
Because abortion is murder; it’s wrong and not right!
Our God up in heaven will surely repay
Returning this violence on our heads some sad day.
Today is the day to reverse the decision
Inscribed by the court through man’s faulty vision.
Oh, listen to this voice, and heed to this cry:
Now’s time to stop this ere more babies die!

This poem is written with an acrostic of ABORTION.

Happy New Year

Harkon now thou lulled spirit,
And rouse the dust from dreams forgotten.
Ply the chances which feed in the shoals of that annual tide.
Pearls are there, though the shells be hard.
Yearn not, and wade into the waters dear Friend.

Never leaving the shore, sedentary and sullen,
Ends the burning, ends the day,
With empty hands and sandy feet.

Yoke your heart with the reigns of life,
Ever pushing, ever pressing, ever pleasing.
Annunciate your vows with elephant bellows,
Ring true to the winds and loose the regrets of cold reservation.

What's His Name?

J is for Joy in the time of sorrow
When you think there's no hope for tomorrow.
E is for Everlasting, that's what His Love is, 
from day to day never passing.
S is for the Suffering on the cross, 
for all of us who are loss.
U is for Unity, one day we'll all be in Eternity.
S is for Serenity when we're able to behold all of His creativity.
So, as you can see that Jesus is His Name,
And we that have breath should always praise His Holy Name.

Success born

5th january2012.

Before you read the poem please put together the first alphabet of each line to understand the theme…success personified (acrostic style with rhyme)

Seeds sown at the child’s birth, Understand that to be born in sin, there is no dearth. Cease to reason why the mother her name is always betrayal, Come on we all know her best girl friends are struggle, heartache, disappointment and denial. Ease into the child ears soft strain of lullabies of hardship,sorrow,grief and of people on trial. Sure we are that the father his name is sufferings, his buddies are tragedy and despair, Sweet child of the unholy union can be the one to get the electric chair, ……………………………… But is known as SUCCESS if given tender loving care, Oh its roots are always never too rich, that of multimillionaire. Rise from the crowd below and climb the steps of glory, Now on is the only aim for him so that in his memoir he can write a fine story….

Three months of fall

Starting off this season with a new school year,
Embracing students and colleges that I hold dear,
Preparing schedules and changing my inner time,
Taking off and editing my summer mind,
Erecting creativity to adjust from two months away,
Motivated by the nights under the stars where I lay,
Believing for prosperity and a new wage,
Enthralled by this fresh chapter and blank page,
Remembering things of long ago, helps me to cherish all the new I now know.

One sweet smell of fall can be easily obtained,
Captivated by the changes in the scent of tranquil rain,
Taking in the crisp, clean, breezy air,
Original memories invade my head of times I have shared,
Borrowing deep inside my silky sheets,
Enjoying the fragrance of fire places burning on my street,
Reminiscing of days of old, watching as the fall unfolds.

Nostalgia overwhelm me, my senses are keen,
Opening my heart to be thankful for all that can be seen,
Very grateful for all that I have because of our countries history
Enthralled by our freedom this is no mystery
Mesmerized by the vibrant colors calling out from my oak trees
Blessed to have all that I do, it brings me to my knees
Engrossed in giving all that I am
Relieved to live in a nation that is an extraordinary gem.

A Christmas Love Story

Cherish the new born king
Hark the herald and
Ring the toll bells
It's Christmas time again and
Santa is on his way as the
Tinsel is strewn and mistletoes are hung
Mama got caught once again 
Alone kissing a guy dressed in red
So I dashed to my window and through open the shutters
Looking upon the roof
Over and over again I somehow now
Vow to remain true in
Even believing in this little Christmas tale of a hymn

Secrets Of The Pink Floss Diary

Secrets Of The Pink Floss Diary

Pink bubble-gum lip gloss is my signature smack and my best plan of attack.

Italian pumps of the best design prop up my gams, 
making them look as if I ran lots of laps that day.

Nights of tango and salsa lessons give me the smoothest moves and 
have the fellows asking me for more time on the dance floor.

Kudos the same fellows give me, for being so mellow and easy to get 
along with when we’re out on a date.

Full of fun and laughter is what my friends and family all say about me, 
they say that’s my best trait.

Learning how to lay back and enjoy the ride of life on the lazy river 
is a great thing to enjoy each summer and all throughout life, too 
much passes me by if I don’t take time to enjoy my life.

Opening my heart and my mind to people who are near and dear to me; 
learning to always be present with those who are so special to me.

Showing those I love, how special they are by expressing to them 
how much I love them and how essential they are to my life and 
how much joy they bring to my life.

Spontaneously choosing the best moments to express my sexuality 
with my soul mate seductively with a simple wink of the eye or the bat 
of an eyelash is imperative to keeping our passion ever flowing.

This poem was inspired by Shirley Harrison’s Poem Candy Floss,

Cherishing (Love Came Down)

Cherishing a man child
Holding only just a little while

Redeemer in her loving arms
Infant boy radiating charms

Savior of mankind is born
The angels announce one dark morn

Mary pondered each day
As supernatural began display

Son of God, her son

Love, God's love came down
Opposing satan's evil ground

Victory, oh victory is our's today
Emanuel chose to give his love away

Poetry contest

Poetry allows for the soul to fly free,
Opening one’s eyes to capture more then what they see,
EVENTUALLY saturating the core of one’s heart,
Tying together whatever has fallen apart,
Reinventing words with intense INFUSION,
Yearning desires are rekindled with a hint of ILLUSION,
Placing pieces together like a puzzle in your mind,
Accepting one for what they say as your ears become inclined,
Letting go of yesterday becomes INEVITABLE to embrace today,
Awaking emotions in such a powerful way,	
CREATIVITY becomes the potter’s clay,
Enlightenment dismembers any form of disarray.

It's Sunday Again

I open my eyes and the week is through
To tell the truth it’s all up to you
Sometimes I wonder when the end shall come
Sunday morning all the rest will become.
Unlike any other day I look back at the week
No matter the outcome I still shall seek
Don’t put anything off until tomorrow
Another day arrives and gone is the sorrow.
Yesterday has come and now it is gone
Always it seems like I’ve taken too long
Give everything you have and you will smile
After all is said and done you shall see for miles.
Inside my heart I feel what is in store
Not to be confused, I wanted this more.

One Peak Moment

Right now
I’m not blaming you…

Pretend I have not had the 
Privilege of hearing those
Lines before. Tell me. 

Eternal glare on my
Sunglasses, which I wear at night.
Only an annoyance…
Never to be worried about.

When with you, I feel like 
An ice pick could go
Through my 
Ear and into my brain, and I’d experience a similar
Reaction. I’d like to

Go drink cheap wine and
Lay in the back of my truck, on an old mattress.

And sing—
Sing anything—as long as it’s 
Santana…or soft Slipknot…

Turning over and over through the
Hours, my friend. My
Eyes see yours and I know you’re here.
When you say “will you still come to see me when
I’m alone and
Not how you remember me?”
Do I know you enough to know?
But, see…
Like when the trees bend,
Or when the rain falls…

What am I
True love waits? What the
Hell is that? I was beginning to think the only thing I’d 
Over for would be for a good Cheetos bag.
Upon that occasion, I’d be sure to look
Good for the cashier at the local store. 
True love waits? What the 
Hell is that? I don’t know
Everything, but I know something.
Trees bend.
Rain falls.
Everything dies,
Everyone dies,
Sooner or later.
And the only way out
Now is to
Die before something else can kill you.
Telling me about something 
Other than me. My concerns. My
Pathologies. And for God’s sake
Stop saying “true love waits!”
Don’t you have somewhere 
Else to be? No? 
Are you lonely? Ah, I see.
Damn you. Leave me be.
Sooner or later, all
Things die. But…
I’ve got to admit you’ve taught me something. I 
Learned that all things somewhere, someday also

Thanksgiving Day

Today and everyday is worth being thankful.
Having warmth and love given is always thoughtful.
All of us should carry this feeling throughout year.
Not being thankful is just selfish, shows your fear.
Kindness should be showed to all each and everyday.
Sure, it may be tough at first, for your heart to sway.
God gave everyone a mind, heart and soul the same.
Individually we must all prepare and play the game.
Victory shall be the joy and happiness, you bring.
Inventory your heart; let your spirit free to sing.
Never let a sour soul, spoil your delightful song.
God is alive, great, awesome, he is never wrong.

Discover loving essence; make it your quarry.
Allow his honor to grace your existence and story.
You and you alone are the keeper of our Lords glory.

P O E m 2011


Paulette knew he'd love the present and
Excitedly watched as he carefully took the box
And opened the lid to reveal, her heart inside
Crepe paper surrounded it, gently holding an
Echocardiogram of her love for him

Only last month, she was wheeled into the E.R.
Now, the doctors said her prognosis was good

Edward pulled the strip from the crepe nest
And, alternated between it, and Paulette's smile
Realizing that many years of her love lay ahead
To wrap him, full, in life's greatest gift
How could he adequately express his happiness?


People oft lose their lighted sight
Each winter solstice that annums around
As days shrink some benevolence cooled
Credit given where credit should not be found
Economy trumps our brotherhood's cards

On the holiday morning, when all is spread
Near tree, menorah, prayer rug, symbol iconic 

Equal time, regarding the desolate neighbor
As joys of family and friends ring the room
Reaching inside ourselves can we reach
To express the love our God implores
Helping to remember, peace on Earth


Pomegranates and oranges sluice sweet tang
Even as members gather and sleepily greet
Adults sit, small children excitedly flit about
Carefully examining tags, boxes and stockings
Eagerly they plead with eyes for permission

Once you were that young too...that magical
Now you point and sip tea or coffee, and smile

Every generation brings its own traditions
As a talisman to the next's memories to come
Rife with sentiment, are day's mellow memories
To ancient minds in some far future times
Hardly believing that all those years transpired

Raining out delight to recieve to God
Aiming towards a good way of life
Yielding to the truth

The Dance of the Ocean

The ocean seems so relaxing when you hear the wave 
Healing sounds that can clean a soul and save
Even when the waves brings in an unknown 

Dodging the sadness can be shown
And the things become more easy
None will dance with balance so steady
Can a person by the ocean feel free of fright
Embarking conquest with passion that last in the day and night

Out on the beach on the sand we dance on a spot
For we hold our friends and an family a lot

Tricky the waves move with a trance each day
Hardly understandable to what I have to say
Even when the wind pushes the water most

Onto the sand by the ocean cost
Cites that people love to see and use as a passionate source
Even when it the wind blows the ocean waves set a different course
And finely the wave pulls back and forth in a lash
Notes that make music in every ones ear with a splash

Poetry Soup

Poems that I never saw possible seem to pour
Out the center of my very soul. 
Everyone on 
This site is connected in a way that 
Reaches even farther than personal relationships started from one's

Seeing peoples talents and creativity in the form 
Of the written word is 
Uplifting and brings 
Peace to a heart that thought that poetry was lost.

Fallen in Love

How did I breathe before you were near?
Each lonely feeling made to disappear.
Listening to your voice is music so sweet.
Looking upon you my heart skips a beat.
Oh how this feeling changes my life.
Lost in this moment I know no pain or strife.
Our joy and promise I am certain of; 
Victorious union written in stars above.
Everything I am, I give you my love.

M esmerized when you take that initial glance,
I mages are never what they seem when in a selfish trance,
R eflections tell a story when you look deep in your soul,
R evelation penetrates through your eyes to reach your desired goal,
O penly seen, when you finally take away the mask upon your face,
R endering your heart to understand more than that familiar place,

L istening to the depths of your inner core,
A tounding conclusions are formed when you decide not to ignore,
N othing is more difficult than exposing yourself to a greater reality,

Baby born off of the bay
Inspiration is into the imagination
Right there ranting like red rovers
Tyrants topple from their towers
He hustles to have his hands hammering homes
Day when daisies drown in detergent; disgusting
And anyone able to achieve amazing accomplishments,
Yields the yellow yaks yammering about the yams.

Happy Birthday!

Down the Aisle

Holding on tightly- 
open to the dreams, 
pondering produces pain- 
enduring engages entitlement. 

Along the way- walls, 
novels not yet written- 
dying in the corner. 

Calligraphy conserving life- 
holding on dearly, 
a frame for future fragrance- 
neither scars nor wounds- 
grandeur grants greatness, 
especially once hope is found.

A Rose is a rose by any name

Another day arrives so I embrace all I see
Rose becomes a constant inspiration to me
On any given day she opens my eyes
She becomes empowerment that is larger than I.

Every moment feels like it could be the chance
Inside the words lives the opportunity to advance
So sweet are the words that they alter my soul
Arms appear for me to climb from this hole.

Realizing the beauty of the flower that bears this name
Opening my mind in turn changing the game
Something calls to me telling me it shall be okay
Everything I lost becomes lost in yesterday.

By any other name it’s still a beautiful flower
Yearning to grow yet requiring a shower
Anything can happen when a flower grows
Yesterday disappears as my purpose starts to show.

No one can take this away no matter what they try
Angels from heaven let loose a heavenly sigh
My love becomes the focus and nothing is the same
 Every Rose is a rose by any name……

Great with the exception of a fate
Destiny still is a great gain
When fate gains the respect of whats great 
When less is more 
and little is greatly appreciated 
When widows coin was a sign of favor 
in the eyes of whom is great

When fame is taken those who could be great 
and given to those who live in shame

When closed eyes reveal a destiny 
and opened eyes is a vision of great a great destiny 
When the misconceptions of dreams are turned into 
the forbidden signs of Great creativity

When i accomplish all of me 
To better all that i will be 
To say to I've lived up to be the Greatest individual that i could be
That's when ill come to see, How Great indeed i came to be

Self Blame

As we talked by the fire,
i looked into his eyes of sweet desire,
i put my hands over my face,
 trying not to look like a big disgrace,
I told him how i will always want everything in him,
He's all i ever wanted,
 my feelings for him grew inside leaving me haunted,
i tried to let go of what was never mine,
i wish I would have met him first and everything would be fine,
He Left without a goodbye that night,
leaving me here bleeding as i cry without him in sight,
As i move on with my head in shame,
it is myself that i have to blame.

Holy understanding of glory from dust to man
Reconsecrate us to your will while dust desire
Immortal tangibilities the finite can understand

Mortal hearts feel in yielding to love's desiring?
Anxious at the table the breast of Eucharist feast
Sleep and dreams delay, to share thy company.

Omnipotent beyond our faults, let tongues unswaddled
Virtue taste, and hands caress gospel's grace ladled

We send our girls and boys off to fight in some foreign land.
We tell them how proud we are of them.
They are filled with pride in God and country and in us and themselves because they 
are doing a good thing.
Then they get over there and the staark reality of it all hits them like a sledge 
We have to do our part by letting them know we haven't forgotten them or how 
much they are sacrificing for us.

How many meals have we children eaten there?
Although possible to count, it’s vaporized in thin air.

Zilch is not the number and we don’t have a clue,
Eating was foremost but mom had other offerings too.

Longing as we do for her kitchen’s sights and sounds,
Scarcely any scraps ever left for neighboring hounds.

Kings’ never ate better and it’s very easy to see,
I just look in the mirror at the extra inches on me.

This little lady knew more than just how to cook.
Calmly speaking without hesitation or a second look,

 “Heavenly Father, bless this food.” reverential in mood.
Each word gave us a lesson, in her non-musical etude.

Now mom cooks in heaven waiting for us to arrive.

Embrace we shall, with glory in our hearts,
Rejoice in a better future, not hide in the past.

Annoint His head and feet with Oil of Myrrah

Illuminate His Mother Mary's care

Extolling His Father at God's behest

Teacher He was to all who stopped and heard

Honour his forbearance of wrath incurred

Exemplary His traits  for all to see

Lauded he was when died at Calvary

Obeisance His selfless sacrifice

Redeemer He is of man's wayward vice

Deliverer He's there at our demise

The title won't fit

I am saved by those who learn from my mistakes

I open my eyes to see something else new
Amazing after seeing all that I’ve been through
My mind starts to dream and I drift away 
Somehow I still arrive at today.
Another day with yet another chance
Viewed from the top where I take a stance
Everything seems to join together
Disappointment floats away like a feather
By this time I thought I would already know
You first plant the seed so something shall grow
The more I learn the less I know.
How many mistakes before I understand?
Only my heart knows the best that I can
So many things are just left to fate
Erase all that’s passed and wipe clean the slate.
When I feel saved is when my words are heard
How it got to this seems rather absurd
Only mistakes can teach you of life
Learn to forgive and forget about strife.
Every little piece becomes part of a whole
Another day passes, another day old
Remember or else you soon shall forge
No matter my fate the future is not set.
Finally peace arrives at my door
Receiving what my future holds in store
Only time can show me the key
Me, I just look and the more I can see
Many people come and then they go
Yet I still stand here trying to steal the show
More often than not you shall get what you send
Initially it might appear like the end.
Sometimes when I hurt I remember why
Too many mistakes based on somebody lie
Another chance for me to save myself
Kindness prevails sent by somebody else.
Every soul has spent some time on the shelf
So goes the discovery of oneself...

Awakening Spring (double acrostic and end line word)

Around the corner, the sun will show its new face after                               A
Well earned time of having endured through the cold of                              Winter.
Anticipation is felt as nature burgeons and animals wake                            Anew
Keenly sensing the coming of spring with all its love felt in its                      Kaleidoscopic
Emergence of colors everywhere and its fragrances brought by the             Elements.
Nature at its youth, feeling the excitement throughout, that we all                Naturally
Instinctively experience rebirth within the fiber of our hearts; yet still          Intimidated,
Not having yet forgotten the frozen breath of the dying icy season. But        Now
Gratitude moves into the soul from the lessons learned, and we thank         God.

Sweetly, we turn our eyes to the heavens above for the blessing of its          Smile
Pleasantly blowing to us in fragrant love with the breezes and the waters,      Preparing
Rebirth of nature, and the birds sing us their songs of love while                   rigorously
Investing their all in the building of their nest for their offspring,  so              impatient,
Nagging at times to their loved ones, then making it all a fun game to play.   Nature
Gathering their families and I remember my parents for whom I thank          God.

Let all of us remember the truth of Christmas day.
Our god sent his Son upon this Earth, we did pray.
Victims we were of our own predominate selfish way.
Evangelical visitations spread announcements, they say.

Calmness spread over the earth that night with no dismay.
Angels appeared to wise men along with a starlit display.
Many followed the travelers, as they traced a single ray.
Each one bringing gifts of praise, presented where he lay.

Delivering a powerful presence, in clothes tattered and frayed.
Opening hearts and souls, with his power of glory displayed.
Wielding smiles of joy to all that believed the word conveyed.
Nearer to their God, they felt his gift to all, as they all prayed.

Open heart

With one glance you stole my heart,
With one smile my hatred fall apart,
You are in control,
You are in command,
you have my attention, you have my demand,
Your smile has captured me in the palm of your arm
Can this be, I am in love again
A dream come true
Glad to know that this love will be true
I am happy 
My heart is open
It’s for sure because the soft breeze blew
A love that has finally came true.

Salute The Veterans (Acrostic)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ideals are lessons we live
Sharing new moments in time;
All the love we have to give
Looks better to they who find.
Understanding to love, we need
To remember the soldiers too;
Each of them fought and freed
Those in places who were subdued.
Holding onto the memories within
Expressing your thanks to them all;
Venture up and let love begin
Everyday that they live to call.
The veterans and soldiers need to see
Each man or woman give a thank you;
Remember they fought for Liberty
As freedom rings with our Red, White, and Blue.
Now's the time to let them know,
Sharing with them our freedom will grow.

Shes an angels

She looked at me with her eyes
Healing everything even my lies
Even when I am descending
She never gives me an ending

All becomes peaceful with no pain
Not pushing her away I gain

Acting if she is my own 
Never she is harder than stone
Generating pure spirit is a cure
Evening lights shine so pure
Love of all things she holds
Some love stands in time so bold

Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Sometimes you can’t make it on your own
Open your heart yet you feel so alone
Many things happen that are beyond my reach
Eventually the wave shall crash on the beach.
Today I thought that I could see
 Inside, my heart still beats free
Many times I just can’t do it alone
Eventually someone comes to take me back home
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own.
You feel like the player yet not in the cast
Only with some help can I complete the task
Unfamiliar isn’t easy yet I see I must ask.
Common is the thread that binds it together
Accepting what is seen seems to take forever
No one can see what you envision
 Too many mistakes are due to lack of vision.
My mind is racing but I am too proud
All of a sudden the words are spoken out loud
Knowing all along I may have taken too long
Even the sun has set and is gone.
I don’t always make it from beginning to end
Tomorrows’ problems are right around the bend
Open your eyes and learn how to see
Nothing can keep you from what you must be.
Yesterday becomes but another memory
Open your heart to receive what is free
Unless you are content with everything gone
Relentless is time you must have been wrong
Open you mind it has been way too long.
Winning and losing are but part of the game
Nothing ever seems to remain quite the same.

The rain starts to fall again

Today began much like any other day
Help for above must be on the way
Everything seems to get soaked by the rain
Realizing the sorrow it erases the pain.

Anything can happen I’m living proof
Inside I stay dry sheltered by the roof
No one can hear me, so what good are the words
Sounds so familiar like you’ve heard it before.

Too many emotions seem to get in the way
Against all odds I still arrive at today
Retreating to only gain the ground once again
To you, my love, I shall always send.

Some people come in soaked from the rain
Totally washed out, nothing was gained
Only the rain really knows for sure
Followed by sunshine it feels like a cure.

All of the pieces of the puzzle are in place
Leaving it behind just to join in the race
Losing it all and then starting over again
Answers I don’t know yet remember when.

Ghosts from the past come from out of the fog
Air is quite heavy saturated with smog
Inside the rain can’t get to me
No one shall know what the future may be.

My Lord Is Risen Indeed

Master and Lord, born of such a lowly birth,
You came and lived a human life on earth.

Loved by some, hated by others,
Opposed and doubted by Your own brothers.
Ridiculed and mocked by those You adored,
Despised and rejected - Your words, they ignored.

In agony, You prayed, "Not My will, but Thine."
Soldiers came and took You, by God's design.

Rulers judged You - found You guilty of a crime,
In fury, the angry crowd screamed, "He must die!"
So they beat You, tortured You and called You names,
Eager for blood, they caused You great shame.
Nailed to the cross, for all to see,
          You suffered, bled and died for me.

In anguish, Your Father turned away His face,
No tomb of Your own, buried in a rich man's place.
Dutiful friends came to mourn their loss,
Every fear they had was soon given pause.
Emmanuel - God is with us - alive forevermore.
Death has lost it's victory.  The grave stings no more.

FELICIA (dedicated to the efforts of all on the HIV/AIDS scourge)

Rapturous ecstasy emanates from the town
Everyone, everywhere spoke of this damsel
She has just newly packed into town
Gossips could be seen around in their clusters:
"Who is she and where is she from?"

More to that, like a magnetic attraction
Felicia draws the attention of residents to herself
Wives are holding tight to their husbands;
The surely of Felicia is surely a threat.
Not even with her skimpy skirts and dresses

Felicia cuts the image of an angel
With her flawless grammar and sense of humour
The bulge of her regions make lookers apopletic
Her steps typify the menacing walk of a cat
She has all it takes for men to turn around

Society people want to have a taste of her
Women desire her to boost their ego
The mighty, the influential and intellectual inclusive
A King once offered her half of his kingdom
A Governor dangled a mouth-watering contract
A Vice Chancellor even offered her 'Medicine Admission'

Felicia suddenly became cheap and accessible
Initial ego and applause faded into thin air
She went up for the Goliaths to chew,
She came down for the crawling to lick.
She offered her body, a ransom for all
Promiscous men were happy to have their fill

Gloom, sorrow and tears soon pervaded the town
The toll of death was rising by the day
Surviving men depict postures of 'Somalian famine'
Their blood almost drained to the marrows
There was a peculiarity in their deaths
Only those who pitched tents with Felicia are victims

Soon the mist began to clear
I then could see beyond the ordinary
I'd ransacked every material available for clarity
The word of knowledge then came from ABOVE
The second name of FELICIA is AIDS

Wandering…waiting, I find myself back to you
In search forever, never meaning to be blue
Never wanting to want you, but wanting anyway
Chastising myself and despairing everyday
How can you be so wonderful to me?
Even the thought of seeing you again makes me want to flee
Surrendering into your beautiful eyes I love
Telling myself to never give up
Ever longing, I will still wait to see you again
Rendering my love to you…far to distant England

Angelic Statues

Amidst the shadows of loved ones past, there is something.
Nearer to humankind then we would ever really know.
Great and small works of stone stand watch and quietly sing.
Each one piece of art, a tribute of what heavens bestow,
Light from morning star embraces what the new day will bring.
I have seen the gracious glimmer from above as statues glow.
Carefully they watch, greeting, allowing visitors hearts forego.

Stone is their form, though love and compassion their creation.
Treasure to be found in each different Angel that you will see,
Angels guide, while guarding till the end of times duration.
Trace their feelings, embrace their love, and seek it for thee.
Unknown wonders to many stand quiet, serving salvation.
Everyone can view the power of these in a new found decree.
Sculptures by man, Gods images of faith, they give regeneration.

A Tribute

Quintessence of radiance in the days of utter dark,
Unparallel among the guides, fairly upto the mark,
An advocate with plenteous, bounteous sincerity,
Invincible, feared neither wolf’s howl nor dog’s bark.

Decent in manners, humble and modest in being,
Efficacious in thinking, alert and vigilant in seeing,  
Adhesive to the mission, incarnated embodied truth, 
Zeal and zest packed rider on the steed galloping.

An aspiring figure, to the secured harbour he rowed
Majestically steering the lobbing ship, never bowed,
Malicious he was to none but clang to the just cause,
Undaunted he was and accomplished what he vowed.

Harmonious and integral he was in saying and deed,
Adroit and perfect guide he was in faith and creed,
Manly, steadfast, sagacious he was in his dealings,
Meticulous model he was on the hazy road to lead.

Adept he was who outwitted rivals with great skills,
Dignified who led safely through mounds and hills,
Admonished he the nation about the hidden traps,
Laudable whom pay homage, respect rivers and rills.

Incorruptible, whom from the hearts we all adore, 
Jeopardizing his comforts, he brought us all ashore,
Indulgent, who never beguiled the trusting people,
Nullified he the opponents who succeeded no more.

Navigated, ransacked he the seas at an early age,
Apostle of faith, truth who broke the confining cage,
Humane, humble he was yet he won the homeland,
Muhammad Ali Jinnah written on history’s each page.

Hope still lives

However it may play out win or lose
Only the decisions define what we choose
Pretty soon everything just blends together
Every day seems to feel like it is forever. 
Somebody calls out yet I can’t hear the words
Too many things I have already heard
Inside another day lies another chance
Losing my footing, to make a last stance
Left to myself I start to feel sad
Losing everything I wonder what I had
Intend doesn’t translate into what I said
Vivid are the colors that just become red
Emotions become confused with what is already shown
Somehow I thought I should have already known.

See my sun-
It smiles high;
Defeat becomes fun;
It,I sigh.
Some people vow,
Where your hope?
Before any row,
Solidly I cope!
My passport seized,
Thinking that kills,
So travels stopped,
Building me hills.
God sees me,
I never cheated!
Truth is good:
When coming far.

I look for a sign

I imagine a world that is better than this
Looking for answers that I perhaps missed
Out of the blue I hear a voice cry
Only to realize it was an angel that sighed
Kindness can change the way that you live
Forget about taking and learn how to give
Over the horizon were dreams can come true 
Realizing all along this is all up to you
A brief second just to consider my fate
Searching and thinking that it may be too late
Inside my head are the words that I say
Granting me peace to make it through today
No more regret let the chips fall where they may.

With All I Know

Words come to me from inside my head.
Instantly, as I arise from out of my bed.
Today I search for where the words will go.
How will I view what the future shall show?

Another moment passes as time does fly.
Leaving behind me all that shall pass by.
Listening for a reason and wondering why,
I become a part of all the things I do try.

Knowing is not all it seems to be.
No one is left here it’s only me.
Only the truth can set me free.
When will I know all that I see?

Launching formidable,affordable and achievable programmes for the 
improvement of the society.
Unfolding new ideas,technology and innovations for advancement.
Not leaving out any essential information,ideas and matters to move forward.

Ever ready to listen and cooperate with subordinates,equals and superiors.
Tender and loving to all with noexception.
On the will of progres always to achieve and succeed
Sensitive to changing events and circumstances in his environment.
Urgently attending to all issues with equal spate and pace.
Checking all details and facts available to him painstakingly.
Cautious in taking actions and making pronoucements.
Exemplary posture of purity and worthy followership.
Shinning example and pride to the society.
Succeeding through hardwork,perseverance and strongwill.

Season of butterfly's and spring showers
Pretty clear skies and planting flowers
Rainbows, ladybugs, and roses
Insects, lightening bugs, and sweet smells for cute noses.
Neighborhoods in full swing with outdoor fun.
Gardens emerge with spring nourished by the rays of the sun.

Near Death Experience

Needless to say you are going down a road that
Ends in dreadful disaster.
After numerous warnings about your life, you still chose the action of
Running the streets like there is no tomorrow.

Darling dear, you’re going to get it from God before the
End of this year. You will experience an apparent,
Awful abrasion that you are self-inflicting by action of
The willful disobedience of God, the Father.
He told you what he wanted you to do. Since birth, for your assignment,

Everything has been laid out on a table made especially for you.
Xcept you actually doing it.
People are holding you back. You give them more potential and kinetic
Energy to do it by listening to them. You’re 
Repeating the same silly stupid activities,
Involving women. These repeated activities are going result in almost
Ending your life. Some who don’t have God in their lives are 
Not able to deal with what you to women in a positive way. He’s
Calling your name out in a unique way, because you are indeed unique, He’s calling
Extremely loud, but your head and ears are too busy stuck in Satan’s rain clouds.

Only to be found in the land of sky blue waters
Tucked neatly beneath her own shell
Holding and cradling her youngest gem
Earrings necklace rings to mention a few

Love Conquers all

Love… all you need
Open…..what your heart desires
Volume…..the silence is deafening
Emotions… I feel inside
Control.....just grab the wheel and steer
Origin …..From where all life comes
Noble….a state of bliss
Quest….. The journeys of our life
Unique….. Something to call my own
Evolve… climb out of the hole
Resolve….. A peace within my heart
Salvation…..saves me from myself
Allege… bear witness to the truth
Living …..What we all should do
Life….it is yours for the taking

Wire Giraffe

When I made this piece of art 
I realize it was to test my creative skill
Reviewing what I can do with wire part
Even when the part does not stay still

The swerving of wire
Hard to bend the way I wanted
Ended up hurting my hand and setting it on fire

Grinding my teeth to hide my pain that was what I intended
I realize how hard it is to bend things to make a shape
Removing ins and outs that is in consistent
After all the debate in my head I had a headache
For some reason I created an animal shape I felt content
Feelings ran in my mind that I was satisfied with my Art
Even when I felt tired and in dismay i did not part

Evoke again that Hamitic vision here sweet,

Winters Adornment

While in the midst of a midnight storm,
I saw the blizzard grow strangely dark.
Never had I seen this awesome form.
That raged placing an indelible mark.
Even though I lived a half a century,
Releasing of power stuck in memory.
Slowly it ceased upon the break of day.

Animal like attitude played all night.
Daylight broke and from my first sight.
Ocellus objects appeared to surround.
Realistic, crystal shapes making no sound.
Nature’s glory of white stood all around.
Making my eyes see buried colors abound.
Evangelical shrouds covered, by the pound.
Now I know what I lost; now I have found.
Truth in beauty, winter’s adornment crowned

Helping all fellow (wo)man is part of the plan 
Righteousness existing in you be the clue
Integrity to self above everything else

Practice makes perfect, is what Mom said.
Regular preparation renders perfection well.
Altruism and faith remembers the Lord.
Corrects the soul and perfects the saints.
Tomorrows arrive steadfastly swiftly.
Imperfections infect spiritual aspirations.
Consideration and repentance corrects errant days.
Expect exaltation while choosing life’s way.

If you listen to the words of this song your soul will display.
Nearer to the truth of faith, will all the words show truth.
Do it in the name of Heaven, be justified in the end.
Every time I recall this line, my heart flutters in dismay.
Lost treasure on mountain, to die for it would be uncouth.
Intelligence to be your guide, all their treasure would send.
Building greed and destruction, sharing was offered to all.
Let peace shine upon the earth, good will and love to all men.
Every war has been fought for good, though it served only sin.

“One Tin Soldier” is the song that had an everlasting thought and impression upon my life.

Easter Lives

Except the fact, He died for all our sins.
Almighty Gods’ Son showed us love.
Sincerity of the most precious gift for all,
Taking our sins upon the cross to bear,
Enveloped love in his daring passion.
Rebirth for all from a single, simple belief

Life is precious, but the hereafter is more.
Inside us all is a choice, we make alone.
Veraciously, we are upon the threshold.
Each one chooses, do not deny, betray or hide.
Say these words, “I believe he died for me“.

From the depths of despair, I cry out,
Only You, God, can take away my doubt.
Regret, guilt and shame are what I feel,
Grief and pain, but You can heal.

Viciously desperate, I invite You in.
Enter my heart, renew my mind.
Now I leave my past behind.

Everlasting and perfect love lifts me to great heights
Always in God’s gentle hands as I fly higher and higher
Grateful to be held high above the world on the wings of eagles 
Lord, Almighty ~ your love renews my strength as I climb to new altitudes 
Each day, I reach up to see clearer than the day before
Soaring, the world will never weigh me down again for I am free   

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint. – Isaiah 40:31

Motivation of complexity,
A web of mystification where
The beauty of numbers emerges…
Holding the meaning of logic, of
Equality, of righteous thinking,
Making the world more meaningful, 
As it modifies what is unknown… its 
Trance enraptures the minds of many,
 Illuming the world with brightness, with the
Chants of knowledge, that continuously 
Sing along with its numbers…

God has not given us a spirit of fear
In each of us there are gifts
For us to stir up
The gifts that God has given you needs to be
Stirred properly.

Do not neglect the spiritual gift you have given to you and confirmed by prophetic 
words when the elders laid hands on you.   I Timothy 4:14

Therefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God which is in thee 
through the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but 
of power and of love and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:6-7

Liberty's Angels (Acrostic)

Looking majestically over a land so free
Ideals are shining for those who may be;
Bringing forth their own belongings to live
Every new person entering wants to give.
Reaching out she welcomes all who come,
To a new land where tomorrow comes from;
Years of hard labor and love from within
Shows to all new comers, where to begin.

As The Lord looks down from Heaven above,
Never does he take away His everlasting love;
Given to every man, woman, and child here
Expecting their guidance, the angels don't fear.
Looking toward the day when there is no more fear,
Shows to the world, that we will never fear.

They Know Not What They Do

Tell me again father in Heaven, why I must die for their sins.
Hearing your voice, shall prepare my way upward to you.
Early this year you said, I would be with you so very soon.
You told me, I would be sacrificed for all their sins on earth.

Kindness and love, is all I ever give here, to all I have met.
Now I must die, so they will live again, lest they forget.
Our love, father, is the greatest gift, that we share with all.
Who would be the traitor, denier; others will just let me go.

Now they judge me, send me to prison; force me to break.
Only you my father in Heaven understand their mistake.
They know not what they do to their savior, your son.

Whosoever believes, that I suffered on the cross for them?
Hear after and beyond, shall never parish from thine eyes.
Along shall have a place in your kingdom forever more.
They know not what they do, these torturers upon me.

Tell me again father, as of now, they know not what they done.
Hear my prayers my lord and father, I give my life for them.
Each one who believes in what I have done, preparing way.
Yet, this humanity now, they know what they < must > do.

Dear father and lord of mine, I forgive, what they have done.
Our love together shall await, choice is theirs for what to do.

Stay Humble

Stay humble, my friend for trouble lasts for a while.
This life horrors us with many tests and trials.
Alone you may think you are, but don't fret.
Your enemies will soon be your footstool.

Honesty,courtesy, and prayer are are some components of humility.
Understanding yourself as well as others also plays a part.
Memorize these instructions, which are a good tool.
Be kind and wise,observant strong and quiet, too.
Learning and living by the of God is the best facility and
Example for yourself and the rest to be and to stay in the act of humility.

A More Excellent Way

Let the strong bear the infirmities of the weak, for surely
Offenses will come, but those who love God's law will
Vanquish the reproaches after receiving then as venial,
Especially to those of the household of faith,
	till the weak become strong, because
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,
	what you do to me I will do to you is
Not the love of God nor the Spirit of Christ,
Especially to those of the household of faith-
Who are free to love through the law of the Spirit of Life.
	So when any smite you on the cheek, turn the other
Cheek to him, also, and if any sue you and take away your coat
Offer him your cloak, also.  When any say all
Manner of evil against you falsely, for Christ's sake, and when
Men revile you and persecute you, rejoice, be exceedingly glad,
And pray for them which despitefully use you.  Love your
Neighbors and your enemies, and bless them that curse you;
Do good to them that hate you so that you
May be called the children of the Father;
Especially to those of the household of faith, please your
Neighbor for his good to edification, and provoke your enemy with good,
Till a change comes, for love will suffer long and sometimes wrong.

Ta Da

Every one of you must listen carefully to me.
Time told a story that we all began to mimic.
Each day became the same, losing our Ta Da.
Rightfully we all went separate ways and far.
Not one, but two kept your hopes by praying.
Amazing watching them go and watching all!
Like you I was in disbelief without my Ta Da.
Goodness gracious Lord Almighty I made it in.
Rare I tell you all marveling too when I’m near.
Astonishing sights left behind but ahead a gate.
Come here come now Wallah wants me to meet,
Especially conquering this amazing life of fate!

Leave the sword at your feet.

Not A Turn On

Nothing you said to me best night 
Outlasts the love of the Father
Temporary pleasures leads to a life of disaster.

A thing that I want to be part of my past.

This day I choose to move on. I have 
Unshakable faith that I will
Remain strong. Yes, indeed I will. I have a
New way of thinking and no separations from the  real love,

Of God. I feel really sorry for you. You’re 
Neglecting  the life that God gave the one that’s true.

Only one life to live;guard it jealously.
Deadly,painful and discouraging are thoughts of the past.
Evaluating and remunerating on past misdeeds will break you down.
Tell sweet good stories of past experiences.
Only recount past achievements to move you forward.
Happy are those that plan within their limits.
Abstain from excesses;as this could be overbearing on your income.
Plan your resources very well to include all essential things.
Place a seal on a percentage of your income that will be permanently on resrve.
Intoxicating is excessive spending;avoid it.
Never venture into projects that are above your means.
Emulating friends,colleagues and acquaintances,will surely ruin you.
Shy away from gambling,betting and high risk investments,that will run you

Theatre of Dreams

Leading actors, outer casings, all the world’s a stage
Invoking mere sporadic thoughts, floating on brainwaves
Venting anger hanging on the lips of stories told
Envision entertaining masses, breaking legs so old

Yielding to pretentious living, shining star so bright
Owning moments, guest appearing each heavenly night
Usurping and embracing almost everything you see
Re-enacting scenes as you become all you can be

Dying and betraying what defines your inner core
Ridiculing newbies while you search for something more
Exploring other options with a similar result
A satisfying outcome dawns for you and your dear cult
Move the crowd with encores; I’m sure you’ll know just how
Satisfy their need and yours, then exit with a bow

I am the Lad

Fifties and hundreds are set in companies upon the grass;
Is not there a cause? Yea, but in this desert place, who will give
Victuals to so great a multitude?  Give ye them to
Eat.  But we have not the sufficiency to buy enough bread
	for all of these that they may even take a 
Little.  How many loaves have ye?  Go and see.  Then
One of the twelve said, There is a lad here with five loaves and two fishes, but
Among so many what are they?  Maybe we should send them away to the
Villages.  But Jesus said, Bring them hither to me; and He lifted up His
Eyes, and blessed and brake the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to 
Set before the multitude; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
	When all were then filled and satisfied,  Jesus said,
The Fragments that remain, gather up that no thing be lost; and that
Which was left over they gathered together and filled twelve baskets 
Of the five barley loaves and two small fishes that were blessed
	over and above unto those who had eaten, which were about
Five thousand men, besides the women and children.  And I, Stachys,
I am the lad who gave and witnessed these things, not knowing the latter end
Should greatly increase; yet, willingly, I still gave, and like the 
Heads of Grain that stand out from the stalk, even as the
Ears of corn, I was made an abundance through grace to be a 
Supply for their want, and also a partaker with them lacking nothing.

Each and everyone have had misery without a clue.
Reality sets in when heartache has blackened hue.
Angels are deliverers and bearers of what is new.
Let’s just take a glance into a baby’s eye of blue.
Delivered upon this earth with a delightful coo,

Only one entity could bring a miracle like this.
Freedom of life and choices of human bliss,

Take another look around you each new day.
Hear the power he conveys; see the life at play.
Exemplified by his words, as well his loving way,

Since the birth of our generation, we have labored strong.
Preparing for what we have known and to just belong.
Inspiration of the soul lacking, have our hearts been wrong.
Richly in everyone’s heart, there is a space that has a song.
Individually we have one moment, and then we knew it all along.
Till the Emerald spirit glistens, we realize, we are among a throng.

Louisiana Won't Be The Same

Let’s just face it.
Our Saint’s are marching in the Super Bowl
Underdogs for 43 years
It’s our time to cheer
Since jazz was born in our state a century ago
It’s going to be a celebration 
A year of new beginnings for a
New generation of Louisianans’ to share 
A Super Bowl win and celebrating jazz turning a century.

We just had a major disaster five years ago
Our faith in our state and team was
Never shaken you can’t fade us
The tables have turned over by wind stronger than Hurricanes

Betsy or Katrina, we are declaring an
Everlasting victory and a legacy of loyalty

That will be passed on to our future as the
History of the Who Dat Nation
Educating our youth of the boot that

Success is what you make of it, we won’t 
Always be down, keep on trying, and be
Motivated and just no matter what 
Expect the best and worst to occur to end up victorious for being laborious.

Amish Tragedy

Amish families weep as they bury their

Murdered daughters; those poor

Innocent little girls torn from their lives and

Sacrificed on an altar of self-pity by a suicidal man.

Heavy hearted we watch these quiet people who


Take nothing from us and ask for less,

Readily forgive without question the man responsible.

Asking not for vengeance or justice, but also

Going to his wife and children in peace;

Embracing them in the love of God and

Demonstrating the true meaning of forgiveness.

Yes, I believe they shame us.

Carol Brown

Charming, like her name
Against all odds, her spirits never wane
Ready to laugh…and to cry, to give and to share…
Of little things she has, with everyone ‘cos she really care
Like diamond, bright and precious…for love is in her blood

Beauty beyond compare, knowing her I am truly glad
Rare creation, like her writings without flaws, so pure and true
One, two or three…and there you see…she’s always free, just for you
What I learned, from her, is to be humble, for not to stumble in search of fame
Now and forever, she will always be Miss Carol Brown… charming, like her name

Celebration 50:XXII

"Out of many one people" should not be read or spoken lightly
Untold heroes held arms with the unsung to make this a reality
Trouble teeming they defied, no obstacles could their will defy

Marching from plantations, hungry roaring in their bellies, these
Ancestors: noblemen, farmers, slaves, dreamers of a new place
Nation builders, warriors, though fragments of that mighty race
Yearned, planned, toiled, fashioned the flag blowing in the breeze

Omniscient God we give you thanks for love and the guiding hand
Nurturing in us gold of spirit that we may always believe your will
Eternal is to prosper us green as mountains, golden as our sand

Proud of this heritage carved from the black of night, and toiling till
Energetically through darkness into light, O God, we give thanks
Onward now for the golden tomorrow, green in vigor and in youth
Patient in virtue we march together, solidarity binding our ranks
Love that made us, love eternal, and love the motive in every heart
Eternal Father, bless each one, and each determined to do his part.

You Wish That You Were Here

You know that you should be here
On your way to doing what you’re called to do gaining an
Understanding of Biblical truths to aid you.

Well I’m doing that on my own. Too busy
In the presence of God to 
Speak with you on the phone
He wants you. I don’t want you sometimes. I don’t know why He does sometimes in

The human eyes of mine.
He knows what is best for,
All of us but the big choice,
To make for our lives is left up to us.

Yes to God and no to Satan,
Or no to God and yes to Satan.
Understanding and application of His principles is the key to

Walking in your destiny. 
Everyday of your life is numbered; don’t’ waste time,
Running in Satan’s circles.
Everyday is a winding road filled with God’s wonder along with,

Hard trials to keep our faith stronger.
Each day is a blessing from God that we don’t deserve.
Running from God causes pain that’s severe.
Everyday you continue run having false fun but I just know you wish you were here.

The Great Storm

Gusts of wind
Rushing air
Enter the storm
At God knows where
Thunder clapping
Streams of rain
Thunder, thunder
Oh the thunder roars again
Run for cover
Master shelter me there

(Saw Jesse Duplantis on Daystar TV and he used Mark 4: 35 forward as his scripture to bring 
his message.  I have been having storms in my life.  Also several years ago we had a 
tornado to go by our house leaving damage to trees,etc. but no injuries or home damage but 
I had had to be at the hospital for several days and nights with my husbands aunt and was 
totally exhausted and my husband opened the day when wind hit the house and I told him to 
close the door and go to sleep.  The next morning we saw the extent of  the damage and I 
know that God had sheltered me there.)

I used to be possessed 
and I didn't even know.
There's times I'd want to go someplace
and I couldn't even go.
Sometimes it was my job
or maybe my responsibility.
I don't know what it was
but I had this inability
to do whatever I wanted.
I was never truly free.
I don't know how it happened
but my possessions possessed me.
Now I've finally reached that stage.
I can give it all away.
Now if the Lord called on me
I could walk with Him today.
Yes I could give it all up for the Lord
though I'm to poor to even sing.
I may have nothing that you see
but I tell you, I have everything.       Amen

Pen of a Ready Writer

Many Days should speak, and multitude of 
Years should teach wisdom, I said.  But

There is a spirit in man:  and the inspiration
Of the Almighty giveth him understanding; therefore,
No prophecy is by the will of man, but holy men of
God speak and write the word as they are moved By the
Unction of the Holy Ghost for the edification and 
Exhortation and comfort of those who will hear and read.

A walk in the clouds

A walk in the clouds.
Is what we all need to see heaven's holy city.
Where our pain and trials are no more.
Our tears gone forever,because we can see our Lord.
In the clouds where we can see His love all around, shining like the sun over a 
rainbow after the summer rain.
That brings us a cool breeze and drops of rain.
On the rose that blooms and leaves us the sweet smell of love.
That is endless and tenderness that only Jesus can show.
So take a walk in the clouds closer to Jesus love.

One Tragedy

One heartbreak from a lost loved one.
Nearer to Heaven, they have such a gift.
Every soul has the choice for so many.

Transplantations of organs, Gods endowment,
Reviving of life through a medical option,
Another’s existence gave a second chance.
God provides the knowledge, we all learn.
Evangelical intervention the sole provider,
Death of one in tragedy delivers restoration.
You will supply love, from ones deliverance.

By being mean first, a sense of strength is acquired
Unfortunately, it is false strength, actually weak
Letting others see them flex their fake muscles
Learning, not, to ever turn the other cheek
Yet, they seem to always need a posse or a group
In their attempts to look real tough, but never do
Never do they admit that they are weak and insecure
Giving the perpetual image of a bully to me and you.

In the Way of the Storm

As the rain descended,
            the floods came, the
Winds blew, and the stream beat vehemently upon a house; but
It fell not.  It could not even be
Shaken because it was not founded upon the
Earth, but upon a Rock.
           The foundation was laid deep, and the 
Man who built the house dwelt safely for considering that the
Assaying would come, he heard and took precaution, and
Nothing of his household was lost.
           But there was another man who seemed right in his way,
And the rain descended,
           the wind blew, the 
Floods came, and the stream beat vehemently upon his house, and at
Once, it fell:  and great was the fall
Of it.  It was laid upon the earth, and the 
Labor that was labored in it was in vain.
It was built with no foundation ans was easily
Shaken by the violent winds and waters, so the
House, moved by the torrents, collapsed,
           and destruction was the end of the 
Man who built the house for considering not that the 
Assaying would come; he heard and took not precautionm, and 
Nothing was left of his household but ruin.

Internal Rush

Delight sings in her slow dancing verses
Responding to internal joy
Under its spell of illusion
I consider returning reply
Duty compels me to reason
I shake off her clutching hands
Coils shatter loose in confusion

Descending to fall at my feet
Responding in kind
And trying to find
Colorful words of endeavor
Or stating it simply
No hidden evasion
I mean no invasion of Self
An attempt at reply to an acrostic cry
Never tempered my internal elf

A Lonely Soldier

I'm in my fox hole cold and damp,
I'm using my matches for a lamp,
I'd give anything to be at home,
instead of this ditch here all alone,
oh the thoughts of mama going thru my mind,
with her loving arms around me, she's so kind,
I can almost smell the cooking that mama did,
with her shiny pots and fancy lids,
I hate to wake up, cause then I'll see,
I'm still in this hole for eternity.

Sids Survivor

Searching for some answers while constantly trying to ease the pain
Inquiring straight to God above, I ask him who was to blame
Despite of our imperfections, he reassured that it was his call
She was needed back up in Heaven to assist him when we fall

Sympathetic to our suffering, he tries to wipe the tears away
Understand this was his plan for she was never meant to stay
Remembering her is bittersweet, as we are reminded of our great loss
Virtually nothing helps other than knowing Christ died for us upon the cross
Instead of drowning in sorrow and pain I will try to look for the light
Visions of happy reunions ahead help to make the future seem bright
Occasionally I still have bad days; although, they get further in between
Recovery is a slow, steady process that's possible only with God on my team

Jehovah once sent down his only true son for the price of our sin to be relieved
Eternally promising his salvation to every Christian that will simply believe
Symbolizing God in human form, he walked with us here in the shoes of man
Understanding about our temptations - yet pure and righteous he would stand
Sacrificing it all just to save our lost souls - upon the cross his own life he gave

Creating hope for every sinner that is blessed by his mercy when they are saved
Holy is his sweet and precious name that really must not ever be taken in vain
Read all about him and what he stood for - It is found in the Bible written plain
Instrumentally was used by our Father above to give everyone a fighting chance
Saving our sins if we will just ask and repent - He forgives without second glance
Testament for believers with faith in the Lord - eternal life is what we will soon find

But our time's running out to get right with God and no one wants to be left behind

Left The Magic Fountain..........
Through rocks ,small
Through rocks ,tall
It became a waterfall

Such Water,gave to all....
Such magic...........

Part of the dream.........
The Water continued to fall

The Stream of Sighs..........
Flowed through the Whispering Trees
Here the beauty lies.........
What the love ,sees

The Water gleamed
For, all it touched........
Glowed brighter
Grew taller
Flew higher.............
So it seemed...........

The Moon glowed
The Stream flowed
Soft rippling into the night
How it gleamed in the Moonlight
The Trees Whispered
The Stream sighed
Such Magic it couldn't hide

The Waters reached the Castle well
The Stream of Sighs...........
The Waters fell
The Faeries could tell...........
for, they were wise.........
In waters that did dwell,

Dead where they lay
Skies weeping,

For,up in the the top trees

The dark ones
Venture forth
Daily,they come

Flashing silver fire
Elven sword put to work
Dark ones feeling elves ire
Dark ones lurk

Steady blue eyes
Reflect enemies slain
Under cold skies
Under cold winter rain

The smallest........

The heart to conquer all

Flashing silver sword
Has struck a chord

Tiny elf to defend......

Wounded elves to tend

Daily battles won
Struggle to hold

This elfs' story to be told

The dark ones
They do not fear
But wonder why
They come to lurk and leer,
under cold grey sky

Ror,the battle for good
triumphs over evil

Daily above

Elves defend their love

Young, vivacious...who i be
Sweet and silly...who i am

There shall be marrying and giving in marriage.  There shall be planting, 
Harvesting, buying, selling  and building, and there shall be 
Eating and drinking in the day when the Son of man is revealed; so, then,

Remember lot's wife.
After hearing the warning with chance to escape she was mindful of the 
Possessions and livelihood of Sodom, which she treasured in her heart, and
Turning herself to look back she became a pillar of salt; so let not him
Upon the house whose gods are inside and Him in the field consider anything to
Return back to take it away in that day, for those who are gravitated towards
Earth shall be left, but those who look up shall be taken to where their treasure is.

An Awesome Write

Allow me the time to say to you all
Never, ever put down your own write

A poem is something that comes from the heart
With words of power, for feelings ignite
Even the best may stumble and stutter
Some may even, with words, totally misuse
Others can interpret, so don’t ever fret
My theory is that, we’re not to abuse
Everyone, yes, you all, write so very well

Words that inspire, speak of rapture, the Lord
Really, all of you, pen the most awesome verses
In styles that amaze, to not leave us bored
This, I say, you all pen really great reads

Some say it’s the money you have or size of the house
Actually, it’s the way you feel when you feel whole
Trying to always have more, attain the gold pot
Interrupts the true meaning, you should have been told
Secretly, you should have it when you are happy
Frequently, too, for it should just be a simple part
Aspire to better yourself, not or never your status
Creating the true feeling meant for your heart
Try your best to smile at all the small things
Inviting others to always try to do the same
Offering them the value of word and your spirit
Next and last, showing, having more is just a game

Satisfaction comes from having what truly makes one happy, what makes you

Unanswered Prayer

Judge this.  We know that since our Father in Heaven hears
Us when we pray according to the will of His Son and in His
Name, whatsoever we ask, He will do it faithfully; so, we
Know that we have the petitions we desired of  Him.  Yet, 

Many have not because they ask not, while some others ask
Amiss to consume it upon their lust, while sinning or warring
In their members.  Then some pray in doubt or without persistence,
Lest, in their desire to prosper and be in health God would hear them.

Leting Go

Letting Go

Holding on to everything that come your way.
Well I’m bringing you a message on this blessed day.
Hurt, rejection or jealousy whatever is holding you back. Let Go and start fighting 
Let Go of all the past get rid of its fast.
Start living for today, let God usher you his way.
Wasting precious time and effort seeking things that can’t prosper you.  Are you 
without a case?
Who want to go back anyway?  For the promises of God is ahead.
You have something you didn’t know you had, you have a promise given from our 
Father, so don’t bother to hang on to anything that’s not of him, it just won’t work.
So stop hanging to binders and hook up with finders and seekers. Seeking God 
and looking forward to his promises. Letting God lead the way this day and all 
the days to come, for Christ is calling us one by one.
