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?
For Brian Strands Christmas Love contest.

Filling minds with symphony of truth
Opening them with catalytic mystery of light
Living waters flowing like angels’ robes
Lifting inspirations into the depths of brilliance
Omitting your hopeful eyes to the skies
Without blemish and aching to purify
You are so talented and true
Outstanding words that cringe in harmonies
Under and over and back to the earth
Revealing an answer that was once nothing
Drenched and battered in sweets for a recipe
Rocking and popping in slivered ecstasy
Enveloping us all in the highest reverie
Aiming at the heavens where you ought to be
My heart pours out to all of you
Someone believes in you—I do
And though the dark is soon to come
Never fear, for light will always fold it over
Dimming away into resonate and pure master-peace
No, you are free in this glistened life
Everlasting like the holy beings in perfect-pitched song
Vindicating your cause and all others to follow
Emptied only to be filled yet again
Ransomed in unremitting constancy
Give into the beauty of recycled rhapsody
Interlaced with supportive strands of genius
Veiled in humility and never lacking agility
Enshrouded with the benevolent shine of generations
Understand that you will succeed in succulent growth
People will only fail you if you give them reason to
You are an incredible addition to a lively creation
Onward the music will lead you on
Universally swirling and curling with mastered energy
Veering out and fluttering in perfect sight and sound
Eventually reaching out to the remaining shadows
Get up and look at the world around you
Obvious beauty surrounds every shady corner
Take what you may and create your renovating legacy
The symphony is playing for you
Helping you along the smooth sands of life
Intertwined in fiery drive and sifting scents
Surrounded by the resonance—and a stranger’s global confidence
-inspired by the one and only Anthony Snape-
L iving, giving, sharing your all with no expectation of returns
O ffering gifts of kindness in words and deeds
V isions of a world in which peace prevails
E xtolling one basic truth that Love is all
Longing to see you grow so vibrantly & majestically like a precious lily in the Kerfly Hills! Show off your green-blue, velvet wings as you soar in the current of the aqua-blue sky! I’m hoping you won’t pass me by! C-;
Inviting in positivity, naturally made by you! When you are feeling as low as the sand in the sea, think of me…think of me…remember our fantastic friendship…reflect on me…reflect on me… – our friendship will always be grand! Believe me – you’re a clever companion and I’m a brainless bard! We’re both busy bees, but our lucky link – friendship-wise – is intriguing!
Look up to me & I will motivate you to shine on like the dawn ~ ; don’t be weighed down by the dismal nightfall…I will unchain you from your lonesome dorm…feel free to knock on my door anytime! I’m available to you 24/7, especially in the sun-shining, splendid summertime!
Love the way you are, shining bright like a luminous diamond (Rihanna reference <3)! Your passion-beaming personality sparkles & shimmers like stars that appear in the ebony skies – you’re a light in the world & you are the Merciful Rain that descends from bitter clouds! Don’t let anyone dampen your spirits!
You Gottah keep trying to go the distance and let your passions flare with fervor flames, friend of mine! You are charming and striking! I know I can act outlandish and awkward sometimes, but you put up with me just fine! Let’s tread the narrow road of recovery & nirvana! When you approach your obstacles, I’ll be your Emerald Compass, guiding you to your Heavenly Haven and steering you away from the commotion of the ocean! I wish your light can shower upon this land of wonders & serenity, you appealing angel! You’re never dull…promise me you’ll dim no more! Sleep well in your Heavenly Haven and rest your soul on cotton-candy clouds! Now, I’m trying to find my tranquil dwelling place – I’ll help you fulfill your superb dreams! Soon, it will become a super incredible reality! Someday, it will become a dream of reality!

Do comment on this poem and pen on,
dear poets and poetesses.
Be a light to this world,
(be not a brainless bard like I!! J/K :D).
Never forgetting about history
Ensuring it does not repeat itself
Walking proudly into the future
Yesterday now becomes the past
Elevating the mind to new heights
Action plan created and working
Rising and meeting the new call!
Tis’ the season born of love
He was born up in a stall
Enjoy the gift’s you receive
Christ, the greatest gift of all
Hope is what he offered us
Redemption for our sins
I know that I have been set free
Salvation from within
Tis’ the season born of love
Merry Christmas to all
Amazing grace we have received
So lets answer the call
Giving is the greatest gift
If given from the heart
Follow yours and you shall receive
The gift that never parts
I know that times are tough but please
remember that many families are much
less fortunate than us. Many families will
turn to homeless shelters for they have
no where else to go. Their are many ways
to help and the rewards are priceless. The
gift of giving is truly the gift of love.
Sense of humour, elevating our spirits
Musing over the simple things in life, rejoicing at what we find
Imagination stimulated, childlike, seeing the wonders in life
Light heartedness, laughing at one’s self!
Everything as it is meant to be, smiling, enjoying, the gift of life
L ive as though life isn't a test
A lways try to do my best
U nwind must not hold pressure
G ive generously of my leisure
H ave a smile on my face
T ry to be honest, lies no trace
E ach passing minute to count to enhance
R emember my life has been given a second chance
A nswer anyone asking for advice
L isten to friends, try to be wise
W elcome all into my life
A lways positive, no more strife
Y es instead of possible or maybe 's
S ee the happy reflection of life in my eyes

S Spiritual Saviour to save sinners souls
T Time for Truth, Trust, Trinity
M Man's belief in God of Love,
A As Father Son and Holy Spirit
S Shall be saved
P aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace
Ships float up forever out
Pilots who once sailed seas find new spirit
Airborne crafts fill the air
Children grow into machines that take them away
Earth was once their only home
And now the universe in endless boundaries is theirs
Geared up for foreign playgrounds, gone in an instant
Eternity is only minutes away and just beginning there
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 :) :) :)

Written for: Debbie Guzzi's "Give Thanks" Contest
Received Honorable Mention
After years of trying and losing, after being told they would never have
a child of their own...A Miracle happened.
We constantly give thanks for our little guy.
Entry for P.D.'s A Poem You Wrote This Week Contest
Judas betrayed Jesus’s whereabouts
End, was near
Son of God, knew this
Universe of the Son of the Divine Father, restored
Sins of man forgiven, Prince of our Universal domain, alive in the hearts of his children
Physical suffering, too many,
Afflicted by physical diseases and pains,
Inconceivable that nothing can be done,
Never-Never Land; an imaginary place without diseases and pains, could that be?
Serenity; quiet the mind, body, soul, guide me Dear Lord, free me of disease and pain.
God made you
He made you rich
Even though the world
Thinks you're unfortunate
Talents you were given to make something
Out of nothing.
Children of the
Hood have the goods
Literally to be
Destined for the
Real success and in
Everything we do God gets the glory
Never self because God gave us this wealth!
Feels like the world and destiny is testing you,
Assuming you can simply overlook things,
Irrespective of always being genuine ,and never giving up
Like all great moments are dim, ignored, and forgotten;
Unless the world and destiny simply has the pleasure of testing your patience,
Repeatingly, that now you have to make a decision and recognize it is a phase,
Empowering those positive thoughts to erupt to sustain a noble empire of compassion.
J ust write a poem...that's what it said
U nderstanding not a word that has come into my head.
S o I just started to write some words to see
T hat they might just fit this category.
P roperly written in words that you'll read
O ver and over I hope to succeed.
E ven if I can't say something witty or trite
T hen again, let my words say that I've given it a fight.
R ight now I can't say that one word here even flows
Y es, fighting for words is all a poet does.
Dazzling and inherent beauty
Inspiring ability within
Animating my e-motion
Maximizing my passion
Onto gravitating excellence
Needed to have my precious
B urning embers growing dim
U sually would be suggesting
R esulting love affair diminishing
N ot in this case, the embers are making
I nteresting visions of love with their coals
N ow love is deep within their souls
G oing from strength to strength with no control
E ndless nights of breathless moaning deep
M aking love until saturated, too tired to sleep
B ecoming as one in mind and soul
E ntwined forever in lust and love, now are whole
R esulting in two becoming one
S ensually and sexually the battle for love is won
EMBERS BURNING BRIGHTLY FOREVER.
Penned by Seren Roberts
S-peak not the truth, pleasant or not,
I-n my mouth, silence resounds;
G-ive me your smile and not a frown,
N-od your head and I’ll understand.
L-ift up my spirit as I do the rest,
A-ccept me for what I am and my weaknesses,
N-eeding your special love, care and sweetness,
G-od rewards you a thousand folds if you can give.
U-pbeat so much of your capabilities,
A-ll of us have something to share;
G-uide me to make the stars not out of my reach,
E-nigma of my strength is you, my God’s gift.
Sign language helps you to understand me,
for I am a child who is a hearing impaired.
Note: I composed this poem lovingly dedicated to exceptional kids especially the HI. May God bless you all.
Am I the only one who's feeling there is something very wrong with all of this ,
I can't seem to get anybody to listen not even when I raise my fist.
How can they not see what I see ,has everybody lost thier mind I say,
Why can't they see what it is that is making them act this way.
Have you taken a look around to see there's something that has changed,
When you look into peoples eyes Lord how you can see the rage.
No compassion for thier fellow man as if they have never ever cared,
For the future of mankind and how we all should be aware.
Saw a friend of mine the other day he was acting a little strange ,
I can't help but wonder just when , how , and who's the blame.
This power and greed is consuming us all we just can't seem to stop
Stepping on our brothers & sisters as we race to the top.
Where's the love ,the kindness ,the hope and faith we use to live by,
How we allowed ourselves to sink so low I' will never know why.
Still I will contunue to spread the word which has always been,
Be good and love one another as you are learning not to sin.
Please don't be another wreck that has been pushed to the side ,
If you' listen to the one and only word you will know why.
We will all band together so we can stand tall and free,
It is one simple word and that is love how could you nor see.
(from Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon & Garfunkle)
If is such a weak word, it branches, crackling under foot.
You know it, but you use it to sing me into sleep, never suspecting
need dangles down upon my head, tickling and wrapping
a comforting hand upon my qualms. If lets you back out
friend, but you wait more patient than the coming of snow.
I'm me, its enough. My ifs and ands are more numerous than leaves
sailing as I kick them about. Leaves don't crackle, they weep
right into the concrete meaning of our existence. Uncertain moment
behind a closed door. Certain moment under a bed of dirt
like hugs from relatives you've never met before.
A friend though eclipses the daylight, becomes lightning to
bridge over or explode into laughter, where do I put them?
Over one shoulder like cast spilled salts? That seems sly,
troubled. Can I weave them together and have life?
Water offers that but slips away, how then bugs? Ducks?
I slip into water as easily as ifs are thrown into the winds.
Will my hair blow like an arrow toward fate or does chance
ease into icicles. They're weapons, ifs, ands, buts, maybes.
Your friendship is such, dressing and undressing like fashion
minds the sales racks. Still though, I'm glad that you and ifs are here.
Dancing with Angels
I love you mom
Dancing With Angels
By Travis Campbell
When the Angels asked you to dance
I hope you had the chance
To do in life this time
All you had in mind
How I long to hear your voice
But now I have no choice
I share your joy and love
As you watch from above
I hope my deeds reflect
What I know you would expect
Give help to those in need
Be mindful of those with greed
I’ll love you until the end
As well will all your friends
Whenever I see a shooting star
I’ll always know that you’re not far
This I say with great respect,
So the whole world will never forget
As the wind gently rustles the fresh fallen leaves
So have you permeated the essence of my soul
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.
Remember, He also wants His children to be healthy.
Lori, please know that you are loved beyond your circle.
Others, upon your behalf, petitions God for your healing.
Resounding voices are lifted up, desiring joy for your family
Indeed we ask, “Render, O God, your tender mercy!”
D Decorating my abode with marigold, colorful rangolis, shiny kandeels and bright diyas
I Invoking blessings of Goddess Laxmi for wealth, Ganesha for prosperous beginnings
W Worshiping, rejoicing and celebrating the splendor of my dazzling, lit up city
A Always wondering about longings and cravings of the less endowed, wishful innocent eyes
L Let this festival of lights, O Lord, en-kindle an unflickering flame of hope in their lives
I I so earnestly pray to thee, enlighten this world, let good triumph over all evil.
*kandeel: colorful lantern used to light up houses
*rangoli: beautiful design made of powdered colors usually done at the entrance of homes
*Diyas: earthern bowls in which oil is filled and lit up using a cotton wick
Reasons pass by as we drive long,
Occasionally a thought or two flies over.
All adds up to a wonderful journey,
Destination is to be whole again.
Travelled many miles within ourselves,
Resulting in inner peace for all.
Inspiration, was obtained by prayer,
Personification is life's road trip.
I live a life in a place where alcohol violence reigns supreme/
over a dying culture split in se7en groups of se7enty times se7en of rival teams/
I hear my brothers hollers I hear my sisters screams/
I see people live among broken glass like that of many broken dreams/
I sometimes wish I could not see what my two eyes sometimes see/
I cant act blind as if it were just a brush off my sleeve/
The more I lose in life the more it seems the less I need/
I try and overcome my own selfish greed/
I got a child on the way I now look at what kind of role model I'd be/
I was was incarcerated so I must not take for granted for the simple fact that Im free/
But it hard with tattoos on my face in place where tattoos like mine seem a disgrace/
Lord watch over me as I take last place in this life game race/
It not a matter of being first second or third Lord cuz all I need iz your grace/
help me to better walk off this destructive road and slow my pace/
Just take me now if Im done with your purpose if thats the case/
Because I dont want to live like I got to look over my shoulder right around the corner....
N ow is the time to reflect on the past
E very mistake noted, you have to learn fast
W e must listen to what the young ones ask
Y uletide time for 3 wishes anew
E very minute brings hope just for a few
A ll prayers asked but not all replied
R easons for not granting not supplied
2 more wishes , health is one to retrieve
0 bad moments to perceive-
1 more wish , for love all over the world
3 cheers for the flag of peace to be unfurled.
Hands holding champagne
Allowing all wishes to sparkle
People dancing under Mylar balloons
Pop corn with sweet caramel
Yankees caps with silver trim
Nobody dislikes silly buffoons
Everyone can be one of them
With the New Year's party colorful hats
Yell and be extravagantly festive
Ears deafened by loud music
America celebrates in Times Square
Rome calls for peace everywhere

Happy New Year

P eace too is sincerely sought after
P rayers for new year full of laughter
Y oung and old are, with new vision, swayed

E fforts to reach goals get again stressed
W orks incomplete are reassessed
Y esteryear’s follies are sure reviewed

Through winding roads, life leads where it ………………………………………… Will
Reaching rugged mountain peaks and valleys deep, until ………………. . You
Eventually arrive at this conclusion- each day is a gift- best take it ... Slow
Too few breathe deeply when shadows gather and when at night, lay .. Down
Recall the sweet moments, like an offspring's first smile ............ And
Leave out slights that sting and bitter words with acrid …………………… Smell
Like fallen leaves, the days turn to dust and vanish beneath ……………… The
Iridescent sunlight and summer rains that water thirsty …………………… Roses
Giving new life to all who with gratitude, acknowledge the gift …………… As
Hope breathes tomorrows new chances to scale mountains ……………… You
Traverse and the raging, wild rivers you'll cross on this arduous …………Journey

I ndividuals need this legalized
J ust to continue the quality and
U sefulness of their lives.
A lternative medications don’t work, but
N ot having this narcotic
A vailable, many will suffer terribly.
There are times when I feel I don't have all the answers and I
Often have to ask God to give me the wisdom and understanding
Because being a mother, I don't always know what to do
Every day is a learning process, But I am eager and
Motivated to be the best mother I can be, I am
Overwhelmed at times but still so very
Thankful to God for blessing me with such a gift
Honored to be not only a mother but a friend
Ecstatic in watching my daughter grow and
Realizing that I was chosen to guide and nurture her
Is truly an amazing and overwhelming feeling
Since I had lost my first child, I'm still haunted
At the thought of who she or he would have been but
God has given me a second chance and I am so grateful
I get to wake up each day staring into her beautiful face
Fighting back the tears of happiness she has graced me with
Thinking to myself, I love her more than anything
N ew Year is the time for new resolutions and hope renewed
E very year our old ones we fail on, and then we do brood

G- Grows Goodness and Gratefulness
The bluest skies, don't seem so blue. And the stars seem a little dimmer too. Now that your around , you put 'em all to shame. Let me break it down 'cause what I'm tryin to say is, no one gets me, like you when you kiss me. Girl, you rock me harder than some downtown band. I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue. I've never found anything that makes me feel like I do about you. You know i love u with all my heart and we got the realest relationship ever and im happy ! And i see that some girl is goin to call out my name all because you wont talk to her because of me lmao she can fall back for real ! haha but i guess we gotta get to sleep and i get to be so lucky to wake up in the mornin laying right next to you love you baby and I always will.
Pray that there will come a day
Evil will have gone away
All of us will live in peace
Conflict in the world will cease
Everyone in freedom live
Opponents for their acts forgive
Extend the olive branch of peace
Ascend beyond the faults of man
Reach out with a helping hand
Take some time each day to pray
His guiding light will show the way
There you go
Making me fear the person I am
Trying to put me down
My bond to you is stronger than I thought
I love and hate you
Not for the unforgivable things you’ve done
But for putting me in that position
Where believing in myself
Is so far out of context
That I hate who I am so completely
For me to get better I need you more than ever
To just be who your supposed to be to the person who I am
Animated awe dances amongst life’s glorious
New blossoms, as they gracefully bloom at the touch of your beautiful heart,

Imperceptible tears our evermore act of gratitude for the incredible blessing it is to have the
Éxtraordinary you in our midst
(Written for Anne-Marié Wepener)
Hope such an allusive thing
Only the despair that each day brings
Memories of a dignified life
Every day overwhelming strife
Living again for just one more day
Empty eyes see the world as gray
Seeking compassion from their fellow man
Surely each of us needs to do what we can….
Shed the clay that strives to be an anchor
Tarnishing, but for awhile, the dreams of man
Addled hopes can rise in the morning’s mist
Instead of languishing beneath despair
Replenished strength awakens the spirit
With a simple drink from the Milky Way
And flirtations with Perseus opens up
Yielding beauty in heaven’s realm
The grave that holds yet, a soul to Earth,
Owns the judgment of defeat
There is none, but one, that must decide
How to build on wishes made
Even when the faltering of darkness
Shadows well the light of faith
There is a spark that burns the night
As gravity shows force, to mark a trail
Rise! Rise, you fallen man!
Strive to be among the stars

Feelings that were dead, and forgotten are being resurrected.
Things I never thought possible are becoming reality.
The hallow feeling I felt is disappering, almost as if a dream.
New and exciting is true, comfortable and real too.
I lay awake reveling in this bed of mine, wondering when my time would come.
Feelings that were lost and dead thought to be gone, are now growing.
Justice must see day in all situations
Universe is calling to those with ears
Society must listen and understand
Too many times, much is said no one hearing
Invisible attention in action
Creating and promoting hypocrisy
Enough is Enough, Justice must Reign!
Stand beside me all the time
In this beautiful world because
Very important to me
And you are my breathe
Kindhearted and caring
Relation with me
Is unforgettable till i die
Show the same forever
How much ever we fight
Nothing is a hassle
And expecting you will be mine
Pity you left me
Under this roofless world
Valentine,will you come
Very soon and
Understand my feelings
Love me forever
As like before and ever after.
Heart - beat increases
Opened - to love

Cannot find it anywhere, that I look,
One has it when they are born to know.
Many think they have it, from a book.
Many feel, they have it, with such glow.
Only thing that can be lost and never found,
Never to be returned, thoughts are bound.
Sense of commonality, can rule the world.
Examples surround us every day, unfurled.
Now that you think, you have not lost it.
Send this to a friend, who has not one bit.
Each day, it is gone, true revelations sit.
Health’s the most important thing;
As such, it tops my list.
Peace within ourselves and where the
Problems do persist.
Yesterdays preserved and packed, a
Nudge to look ahead.
Endless opportunity, just
Waiting to be fed.

G iven unconditionally, a
R ansom has been paid
A nti-Semitic ignorance could not stop his way
C rucified and he rose , his gift abound today
E ntrust all you have , his love shall heal thy pain
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.

Gardening is planting the seed in hope that it will grow and blossom
All things will blossom with time and sunshine
Roads can get bumpy when it rains but you can weather the storm
Don't let to much water fall from you can it can ruin the roots
Even if you don't mean to you still can neglect you plant
Never give up on your plant even when it looks like it's dying
I will give it plenty of time and attention and I will talk to it too
Need to give it plenty of space when transplanted so as not to anger
Grow with all my heart till it will burst open
The Sweetest Touch Contest
Kissed by the waking sun, the rain of the night becomes undone,
I dream of you, my daily day dream; and the day has just begun
Riding up to Dahisar, I reach yonwards on my bike
Adieux I've bid to bachelorhood, looking forward to our petty fights
No other can fill my life, only you my wife; my lovely snow-white.
Dancing through a field of awakening childhood dreams
Anticipating summer days, life bursting at the seams
Nature calls a shy, young girl outdoors to explore
Dandelion heads of vibrant gold, beauty she cannot ignore
Eager to wish upon the wind, she picks a bunch to blow
Laughing as she chases fluff, seeds search for soil to grow
I remember that young girl and all she dared to wish
Often I slip back in time, soft memories I embellish
Never again have I felt that young, hopeful and free
Waiting for my tomorrows and life's possibilities
I could wrap myself awhile in ornate dandelion dreams
Savoring memories made in the summer sun's golden beams
Happiness danced along with me and petals in the wind
Each time I see dandelions, the joy returns like an old friend
Someday, perhaps I'll pick a bunch and chase childhood wishes again
Curiosity brimming over the edge
Heart that only waits but never demands
Innocence in a glance pure and sweet
Laughter and glee over the simplest gift
Dear and earnest gratifications flow
‘Softly illuminating the wondrous glow
Cheerful in the future prediction
Heart brimming with endless benediction
Rivers of optimism stream and buoyantly flush
Inner being and outward joy a healthful blush
Santa Claus prances with excitement and glee
Tree dear tree how verdant is Thee
Manger of presents abundant yet meager
Awesome, accomplishing role of a giver
Swirling and twirling the soft snow falls
Youthful and innocent how it enthralls

T The humble prayer of Easter is not in vain
H His proof of life everlasting, arrives in every spring
All these thoughts run threw my mind question is do I run or do I hide?
I get tired of doing the right thing , I just wish people would have seen.
You were a sheep in wolf clothing, You had me backed in a corner my weakness you used.
I showed you my fears my mistake, Nothing ever seems as it is I cried my tears and let go.
Yet I hear your voice haunt me in my sleep, Flash backs run all I keep repeating "Leave" "Leave me be".
Feel empowered but you hold no power over me.
As I stand , I stand tall and strong just as I will remain strong as a statue.
Nothing can prosper I've mad it threw hell I've won the war.
You see you hold nothing over my head anymore!
In a world so diverse
Love is but a curse
Ours is one to cherish
Very likely to one day perish
Even though it is very strong
Youth these days dont last too long
Over time lust will fade
Uncovering feelings hidden in the shade
So tell me now this is real
Or tell me how you truely feel
Tell me what u want to say
Each and every single day
Love me, for who i am
Let me know you give a dam
More and more i fall for you
Every word i say is true
Dont let me down, dont let me fall
Over the ledge, into the wall
You put me to the test
Openly, i'll admit, you're the best
Under pressure most will flee
Forget that you're stuck with me
Every day i'll hold you tight
Even in the depths of night
Longing to feel your touch
Telling you i love you so so much
Hoping that you feel the same
Easy to lie, but such a shame
So honest and true
Admit that you love me too
Maybe yes maybe no, but its not a game
Everyday i love you, so tell me, do you feel the same?
the first letter in each line= the last line?
our Lord is
Awesome our Lord is

Drops of rain, splash at my feet
Every time I see them I'm reminded of you
Always working so hard and true
Realizing that I held your heartbeat
Every now and then your smile would creep
Showing me the love that I knew
Truest form of compassion as I cooed
Growing up through the years
Rain would suddenly give me a fright
And this saddened me for many a day and night
Never had I experienced these type of fears
Don't you remember holding me and loving away my tears
Paw Paw I miss you so much now; you making those delicious hash brown bites
And although you're gone, I'll see you soon in Heavenly Sunlight

Written By R.M. Hunt
a.k.a Robert Matthew Hunt
Also I dedicate this poem to both my Grandparents
Shades stored away
Room painted as clay
Tarot left unread
Ink spills on pencils
Got rid of nickels
American heroes return
New medals are given
End their hurdles again
With a handful of kindness and generosity
Year after year they fought the enemy
Enraged mothers wail with pain
America still mourns
Rampage of innocents
T he Almighty stood still
H eedful eyes watching the defeated lie with no will
E xcelling no more was the defeated, to stand up and fight!
C ourses of light emerged
H ailing the Almighty’s Win
I nstruments played during a march towards the woods
M elodies of happiness hailed the twin
E ager to shake the hands of their country’s brave soldier
R aising their head up high
A cknowledging their marvelous Win
‘ twas a magnificent day
S alute thy Courage and Light
D enying the fact of wining was the wood’s deep thought
E nding in a glorious Win was their resurrection of hope
A s they cheered do lively
D ancing and yelling: “The Chimera’s dead”
New Years Eve celebration
Ever so grateful of redemption
With overindulgence of consumption
Edibles I've been craving
Aha so much champagne drinking
Recoup from stomach bloating
Swaying, light-headed teetering
Eek nightcaps of antacid
Verily, not so lucid
Eau de mornings, feeling putrid
For Francine Roberts' contest, "New Years Eve,"
I love you
Let's face it, I do
Obviously you have no idea
Veiled and masked away
Enveloped in secret I am
You I love and no one else
Obsessing over you
Understand that I really do and I wonder if you do too
Random thoughts on a roulette grid, softly sifts on Dubain sands
Edge of heaven I cannot see, yet see you, I do, my bestest friend.
Keystone of bliss, you carry along; strumming softly its guitar strands
Hand in hand, cheek to cheek, glued together by Aphrodite's command
Abstracting on a distant dream, together should our family expand.
Render your reassuring sheets of waters
Admonish my growth and tend to the slaughters
Initiate refreshing drops, and lighten the load
Nourish us all by washing out the blood
These are the foundations of who we are
The events of history that have occurred have served to define us as a people
And a nation !!!
Heroes were born of this tragedy
While showing the finest example of America
Strength, honor and commitment
What we are about
We shall never fall
We shall never fail
The unity of this nation is unbreakable

Excellent days and nights with the Lord

The rain fell
Splattering upon my open face
Mixing with the tears
Dripping, trickling down my neck
As if the stars above were weeping too
As if someone above was crying along with me
Helping my tears to fall.
The rain fell
Washing away the world
Taking with it the pains
And the horrors and wounds
As if we were being given a second chance
As if we were to be set back to the beginning
To start over.
The rain fell
Wails splitting the skies
Clouds rushing across the blackness
Stars blurred, covered
As if everything were running away
As if something was chasing it all away
A memory, maybe.
And I still stood there
In the middle of it all
Raindrops and tears running together free
Watching, crying, letting go
A new start, something told me
A chance to heal the hurts and bruises
To clear salted tears
And wipe everything away
And maybe, after it’s all over
I’ll be back at the beginning
Laughing this time, smiling
Thanking the stars above,
Thanking the someone above
For this new chance
This new start
But for now,
Just for now,
The rain fell.
Favorable and a faithful young lady indeed! She’s compassionate, bright, positive, confident, easygoing, single-minded and humble (unlike Charity) and she’s the mother of Joy’s niece!
(I won’t tell you all her name…I’ll leave it as an anonymous thing until later on of course)
A pretty, prudent, humble and joyous individual, bearing all of the traits her sisters lack: hope, joy, charity, and so much more! Above all, this is the trait she builds up before she passes away: TRUE, GENUINE, & TREASURABLE LOVE <3
I believe she evidently found the love in her life…a boy that’s poor in the world’s standards, but rich in heart…he shares most of the traits she has and he has some she doesn’t have…and vise versa! They were like two peas in a pod and they were destined to be with each other for eternity (strangers to best friends to a cute, charming couple)!
Tranquilizing like a violin her voice is! She’s a surprise at every corner! She has a priceless, graceful voice greater than many! She’s unpredictable and untamed with enthusiasm and curiosity (much like her daughter) and takes it on another level!
Has a hilarious side of her, though she’s too bashful about it getting out of control in front of everyone, including some of her family and friends . . . She brushes her hair to try to let go of the embarrassment she feels inside; likewise, she’s grooming away the gloom in her solitary bedroom and wants her sister, Charity, to reflect upon her for one (she feels left out when she’s hanging around her because she’s self-centered and doesn’t notice her, only herself)! She refuses and breaks her heart, once pumping with plenty of effulgent, extra-incredible exuberance – thanks a thousand for your ignorance, Charity! Have a giving heart like Faith, thumping with triumph, thundering wonder and thanksgiving! All 4 of the sisters should gather and preserve faith forevermore!
Victorious and the greatest gift of all, it is
Everlasting and it reign down from the heavens above
Love does not judge and it does not boast
Accepting all inadequacy and immersing truth
Ubiquitous to each one of us, this
Goodwill of the heavenly realm brings peace within
Hope to each one and warmth to embrace our spirits
Live, Laugh and capture this great Love
Rising above the horizon
An arc of varied shade and hue
Iridescent image of perfect beauty
Nature inspired after the rain
Bringing hope and promise bright
Offering comfort and peace to the soul
Work of art by divine hands
Sensibility defined by loving emotions,
Thy love blossoms between two souls,
Rewarding both with a red hot hue,
Over the years, the magic begins to fade,
Neither's heart is in the right space,
Growing apart after thy love etiolated,
Hurtful feelings burn in the lover's mindful place,
Emotion enflames them with a life of waste,
Always hurt and stabbed, thy strength of love fades,
Removing their pain with anothers embrace,
The heart is always stronger after love has been displaced.
Help is something I need
Even though I refuse it
Let me learn how to accept it
Please, don't give up on me.
Your soul is what lies in wait.
If you accept my challenge you must
Succeed in traveling through Oblivion completely.
But if you fail it is
Your wife's soul I will take.
Far past the entrance to the
Afterlife must you go.
Rely on nothing-trust no one. All here is meant to keep you here.
The halfway point has come and gone. From
Here on out your journey gets
Wind your way past this last obstacle
You'll have reached the end.
To journey your way through
Oblivion complete has not yet been done...
Bring yourself to me, clever man, and
Everything I have done with be undone.
Goodbye, Traveler. May your journey through
Oblivion have strengthened your soul, and taught you what most men
Often cannot learn.
Death did not touch you here, and you leave here with my blessing.

What is the sound that makes me lean closer?
Hearing your voice, low and sweet
I just have to smile.
So pleasing is the sound
Persuasion slides into your tone
Endearing you to me further
Relenting, I will agree to whatever you want.
C ompose yourself in a good way
H old onto your dreams
A chieve whatever you set your mind to
M ake a positive plan for your future
P ursue all of your goals

O vercome any obstacles that might get in your way
N oteworthy of excellence
There’s a champion in all of us
But sometimes you just have to look deep
In order to find it but when you do
Hold onto whatever takes shape in your heart
And you can become the champion you were meant to be.
When you do find that champion in you
Don’t let anyone detour you
With any wild and unkind words
Stay on course and finish whatever you start
Because there’s no telling what you can become.
Oppress no creature
Tales of heroes beyond, the normal despair of war’s plight,
Hearing of these stories, make us all quiver, in the night.
Each of them that go to fight, any battle, with all their might,
Universally, they are unknown soldiers, until names are released.
None knows the others, until their soul’s battle, against the beast.
Kings and political heads, never battle, for what they believe.
Never placed in harms way, they send soldiers; Mothers grieve
Only the loyal subjects take on the heat, from what they weave.
We honor, the Unknown Soldier, without any name, to perceive.
Nearer to God, these soldiers are known, here only deceased.
Secure, they have left us all, until the next battle to be fought.
Onward, we keep sending those to die, for what, a thought.
Listen, to all the stories, we hear of bravery, by them all.
Dear sweet Jesus, take them to your father, standing so tall.
I never fought any battle; I fight my battles with expressions.
Each of us must remember, soldiers, in their professions.
Remembering, who they could have been, not just impressions.
N- Never say never, please don't say No this day
E- Everyone see what I have to give you in a surprising way
W- Ways to tell her you love her, so many things to say
Y- Yet another year, until your here
E- Even the Baby New Years
A- Argue if you want I expect you there
R- Raving about the excitement, News Years cheer
R- Revamp, count down, kiss, ring, question, your reply dear
I- Interested in only one word to appear
N- Neal I mean kneel down, ok clear
G- Gently put the ring on and then the crowd again cheers
you the forgiver of my sin’s
you who’s given me a second
you who never left but stayed
you who dried my tear’s for so many year’s
you who’s voice I could not hear
But always spoke to my heart
you who comforted me in my sad’s hour’s
you who fought the evil from taken my soul
you who always’ answered my prayer’s
you who always take’s care of my love one’s
When I’m not there
you whom I call and always’ pick’s up
you who lift’s me up when I’m down
you who love’s me no matter what
you who molded me from head to toe
you who made me with of love
you who dose not judge me
you who in brace’s me and keep’s me warm
you who dose so much more then I
Can put in writhing
you who blesses me with life
you I owe my salvation
You are my only true friend
you know who you are
But to those that don’t know you
You are the son the father and the whole ghost
Relax your mind from any troubles that come your way
Easier said than done…but it’s required of us to have leisure time once in a great while! I have no problem with that whatsoever!
Laze around and put your mind at ease please? Hang out with your friend and have a cup of tea or coffee or any alcoholic beverage! There’s plenty to choose from! There are soft drinks in the refrigerator! There’s orange juice? Milk? Water with ice or without ice perhaps? Please, tell me or I’ll drive you and myself nuts!
And…simply…kick back! Chillax! Everything’s gonna work out in the end for a purpose that’s beyond brilliant! Just let it be…for now!
XOXO’s will be sent to you by a mystery girl (Your secret admirer sends you XOXO’s to you in other wacko words)! Oooh…I wonder who’s that lucky person! Do you have the hearts for her, young man? Whisper ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in my ears and I won’t tell a single soul, I swear from the bottom of my heart!
Allow yourself to get out of your comfort zone and explore the Joyous Island – surely you’ll know where the wind blows!~~~
Never lose touch of wisdom and wise sayings from the elder you’ve met somewhere in your past…use your time wisely, good sir, and don’t forget to be carefree!
Danger might come our way! But, be happy – that’s what it’s s’posed to be, pal! Dangers are but for a moment, so have no fear, dear boy!
Kick back and let yourself unwind for a time! Let everything solve on its own – take a break from the job and God will finish our job in no time if we place it in his hands, we’ll witness his mesmerizing miracles
I’m sorry! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re currently unemployed! I wish you luck in your future findings and your search for jobs of course!
Chit chat with your companion and speak your mind to him…oh buddy – make sure to spend time with each other and do some rather epic activities
Kill the fears and reign over your phobias and be brave instead! Everything will be OK! No need to feel this overwhelming amount of dread!
Believe me – I’m not a pro at being worry-free, but I am able to give you tips about how to decrease your anxiety (I hope you take them into consideration and I hope it proves to be helpful in your daily life)
Ah…right! The title is redundant – silly me...I should’ve caught that before writing this composition, but it’s too late now – this verse is about to be done and it would be another chore to change it up! Funny, I just noticed the title and its “accident” – that, my friend, is heelarious!
Chilly- the weather is… you should’ve worn a sweater or something of that type of clothing!
Kangaroos spend their leisure time, hopping happily – will you do the same or get all worked up all over again?
Here by we will take the lead
Enemies fall at our feet
Rescue all those who are weak
Our hearts strong as steel
Ending all the misery between
Saving the souls of those who deserve it
Tenaciously clinging to hope
Surrendered to His will
has no place here
On the bridge
Prayer and desire…
Candle flickers, swaying to light the dark streets
and the air whispers song of hope, love, and
nothing could say is just a simple prayer.
Dancing, circling with blue, yellow and white flames,
lit the one small candle let her melt as time goes by,
endless brightness, she can give, to light one soul.

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,
People need more creativity in their imagination.
Open your mind and start the liberation.
Eventually we'll see that this is not an illusion.
To bring great minds together for a knowledge infusion.
Relate to what one another and what is said in this place.
You might realize in here, we are better because we are all just one race.
Poetry palace doesn't need to exist only in your mind.
All you have to do is look around, it is wonderfully designed.
Look beyond just what you are seeing.
At once, you might see, we are all just human beings.
Change is inevitable, but will be met with malice.
Even those people will see the beauty, in the poetry palace.
***For Sweetheart Linda-Marie's contest. By Chris Matt
Here is where I belong
Here is beside you I shall live
Here we shall make love
Here were our pact live
Here will be our home of joy
I was taken aback by your courage
I quiver as you look at me
Your eyes were blazing like gold
As I abase myself to your figure
Little boast did I have as your smile rack my nerves
Your presence opened many thoughts
The thought that were trapped in my belly button
Here I am
This is I who you once dreamt of in the days and night
This is l that you shared something stronger than stones
This is I who whispered to ear with a harmony voice
This is I that will forever be your guide
Here I am
The time has come for me to hold your hand
This is the time I give you my all
This is our time to show the skies that have seen us.
Love is the color of her Dreams
In the spaces between realities
Spider spinning Webs of Blood
To bring peace and life
Reaching within to find release
And bring forth the promise of Darkness
Yesterday became today and then it just went
Only to realize that all the money was spent
Unrelenting the past shall reveal
As you are a magnet and I am steel.
Regardless of anything my heart still beats
Emotions are created by those I meet
Another day with another chance to set it right
My eyes see the moon as I head into the night.
Always the first to say just what I feel
Going full circle and wondering what is real
No one can see yet the cards shall reveal
Even when i close my eyes my fate isn't sealed
Today you are a magnet and I am steel.
Another day passes the sunset shall conceal
Nothing can change what my heart will feel
Don’t be afraid the new day shall arise
I’m just the one that falls for all I try
Anything goes yet another day goes by
Me by myself I sit and wonder why.
Someone calls out and I return from the dream
Today becomes easy like drifting downstream
Even I don’t always get it but I should just know
Eventually love is the key as the gentle summer wind blows
Leave it alone because it’s just the way it goes.
My poem is dedicated to a very special friend,
" Linda-Marie "
Fate was very cruel to her
On her face hope always shines
Roses for her indomitable courage
Love for her defined grace
Inside she'll hurt sometime
Names of friends will comfort her
Darling of everyone's heart
Always there to give laud
Myself so honored and thankful
Another friend to cherish
Reminiscing words of kindness
Immense love given myself and all
Ending this poem with hugs and kisses
Written by Andrew Crisci
Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
Christ the King of Glory
Holy is his name
Reverenced by the Saints
I lluminated Holy Word
Savior of the lost, downtrodden, poor at heart
Treasured in the hearts of every believer
Mercy granted to the sinner
Almighty Lamb of God
Sin conquered and eternal life given
Christmas Spells Jesus In the Heart of Every Believer.
Be careful with my heart
Or it could shatter in your hands.
Because im damaged.
Broken on the inside and out.
You could fix me...will you fix me?
J oined in love an
E ssential surrender,
S aviour of mine
U se me in the midst of your grace
S earch my heart , pure
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

"God bless us, everyone" - Tiny Tim
for those unfamiliar...
Powerful words to bring into sentences
Raining out delight to recieve to God
Aiming towards a good way of life
Yielding to the truth
Isolated from the world's way of life and excepting God's the Creator
Nurturing in a new way of maturity and changing our attitudes
Gouging out the knowledge generously given by God
Heat of love and passion and lust
Optimistic of course
Pleasing thoughts, peaceful faith
Smothered skies of soot sink into raging flames
Torches lift to boundless heavens, blanketing faces with
Autumn air too weary and weighted to breathe
Infuriated fire storm consumes ferociously
Rampant fury creates a stairway to the vanishing stars
While the wild inferno blots out the moonlight
Ashes float for miles through a thick fog of smoke
Yesterday the sun sparkled in an endless sapphire sky
Today an amber blaze threatens to engulf the darkness
Over crackling timber, choking constellations scatter
Terror overtakes the once serene woodland dale
Homes are abandoned, cherished keepsakes fuel the fury
Ethereal howls from hell's hounds spark nightmares
Sirens wailing from the frontlines ascend with prayers
Trembling hands and hearts lift to Heaven
Astral visions of celestial illumination in the mind's eye
Raise hopes for tomorrow's sacred star-filled sky to return
Sanctification of smoldering ground will bring rebirth
By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders, February 15, 2012
for Stairway to the Stars Contest (Linda-Marie, the Sweetheart of PS)
Love with all you heart
I need to forgive daily
Very few know him
Everyone can care for someone
Who's The Good Apple of the Bunch?'s Series Chapter 1:
Hated for what she says or does…I can relate to what happens to her everyday somewhat! She’s been taken advantaged of and been bullied all her life, especially by her mean sisters…she’s an emotional mess and scared to express herself, except in music – the family’s main passion
Oh! So hopeless, stepped on like a dusty doormat, and a same magnet – her personality’s the opposite of her name ironically! She bottles up everything inside and she’s not so good of an influence on her one and only niece; however, she’s special and blessed in her eyes!
Pain fills her aqua-blue sky eyes…her beloved niece is leaving sadly! Oh well…she’ll get over it one way or another! Just leave her be and she’ll move on with life, even with a broken heart…there’s no one to speak her mind to now! Her feelings were meddled with and she’s hurt in the inside – pushed around by the wistful wind…she’s emotionally instable and she’s awfully sensitive!
Eager to getting her back, but this tragedy she faces is heartrending and it leaves her helpless…hopeless once more…rainclouds collapse from bitter clouds…abandoned for life until the future brings some hope in store and in mind for her sake! Restore hope to her grieving heart…
Gracious thought has been dropped from human inhabitants.
Our hearts have become cold and distant to almost everything.
Deference has no meaning for us or any other human.
Before we can carry onward, we must remember the beginning.
Lessons remembered are the key to our future roads to travel.
Every soul must search inward to see where we are headed.
Success is truly wonderful and we have fulfilled our winning.
Success without faith is gone, and the road less traveled tortures.
America has blessed each one of us from the beginning in faith.
Mercy is upon our leaders, for they have lost the true reality.
Erasing their hearts and minds of the reality, united we stand.
Refuse greed mongers of their desires, replacing with honesty.
Individuality of the representatives was our ancestor’s goal.
Call out God Bless America in truth, faith, freedom, to all.
Anything less will be the end of whatever time we have left.
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……
More than I could ever imagine it could be
You could never understand where she takes me
Looks at me with that sparkle in her eyes
Ovations come from every smile she tries to hide
Volunteering herself to my needs
Even putting up with my attitude (hard to believe)
Forever my love to her and not another
Opening new chapters in our lives together
Relishing ever touch,every kiss...it's her I long for...it's her I miss
Having a relationship with Jesus,spurring us on to be better
Evidently our love is ordained from above,sustainable in any weather
Romance in every kiss...I've always told her,I never knew it could be like this
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.
Dancing to the private tune in my head.
Effervescent, as always,
Insofar, as it will allow.
Alongside my faith, while I wait for
Tomorrow's new sun.
Escaping the blues by a fine hair, without
Instigating a sea of divine happiness followed by,
Relief and knowledge that,
Loving head over heels shall happen, yet again.
End this madness inside of my cranium and numb the pain that’s making me
feel this sensation, as if I was drunk off of rum…I’m not a drunkard that’s
dumb and that’s a fact that has made a big impact in my life…especially my
brother’s life to be exact!! Do you have any clue what I’ve been through? Do
you have any brain cells in your empty brain? Are you damaged by your
suicidal depression? Anxiety took a toll on you – you’re in its session…it’s
controlling you like a puppet, doing whatever the puppet master tells it to do!
You demand attention immediately without further ado…pay off your expense
of your emotional suspense! Dispense and you shall receive no more expense!
You are fenced in by the absence of hope and the approval of avarice appeal!
Ignorant to the time, drifting away from your grasp! You hold your breath and
you gasp! At last, you understand how important it is to immediately dispose
of your expense! Just reap what you sow and pay up for your sins! The
consequences lay in someone else’s hands and the two grand lands split! You
are way, way more worthy of praise than being in chains in this pitiful pit of
yours! All because you didn’t pay up your exceptional amount of expense! I’m
going to drop off reality for the time being until the end! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees, swarming around
me like my crowd of fans, family and friends – what’s the expense of fame?
Will I be feeling this shame with a grand name? Will it be astonishing beyond
say or just another bill to pay? Ignorance is bliss they say…I’ll type no more of
this verse today…Or I’ll pay my expense of writing too much! At least I give
my poems a great punch of passion, inspiration, and it’s moving, even with
the slightest touch!!!!
Enjoys her new found roles in her life
Visions of dastardly deeds dance in her head
Irate when people are rude and show disrespect
Loves to know what she is capable of
Wishes some things were different
Is nervous about sons going off on their own
Cool mom she is to them
Knows they Love her no matter what
Enjoys her more morbid thoughts
Does enjoy to make a person squirm
Definitely not your average beauty
Enjoys the inner workings of her mind
Makes no issue over who she is
Enriches your life just by being there
Needs love and support not condemnation
Takes charge when no one else will
Each day she shines no matter what
Deliciously twisted and still a friend
This is dedicated to my other 2 sisters. This is ALL 3 of us in various forms. I love you
2 and I hope I you make proud. I am proud to have you as my sisters and hope you 2 know you
are loved. We are all 3 together Evil Wicked & Demented.
If the days seem too long to bear
You should call on God, he is always there.
Need someone to talk to?
A person who you know will always be true?
Friend, talk to jesus, he will deliver you
I'm struggling with doubt and sorrow
Sailing through this world is harder than I thought it would be
Right in front of me lies tomorrow
Behind me are the mistakes, always taunting me
Like the seprent did to Eve
A woman was walking, searching for "The Healer"
Bridge after bridge she crossed, with no one there to help her
Over and over she fell, growing weaker with every step
Troubled with her sin, she wondered, will God's promise be kept
Water! She found water, and the Master was waiting, and into his arms, the woman lept.
I am the Lord your God, and I'm so glad you found me.
Will I heal you? Of course, my child.
Ease your mind, little one. Your soul is now set free
Your heart has been hurt and you've been sick for a while
Mind you, I'm your father. I've been with you, mile after mile.
Super-fast the stairway appeared
Taking my breath away
Awe-struck I follow the power
Interested in what it is
Reaching deep inside of me
Wishing I could hold the immensity
And follow the stairway where it goes
Yellow light flows from up above
Taken by its greatest splendor
One rendezvous of love I carry
This lively piece comes before me
Heaven is where it reaches towards
Elastic is its long dynamic
Simple is its path upwards
Timeless is its grandiosity
Astounding is its beck and call
Reaching the outermost layer
Saying it's the greatest of all
Entrant into Linda-Marie's "***STAIRWAY TO THE STARS***" contest
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...
i sit by a window,
waiting for the sun to shine.
life is usually sunny,
full of laughs and smiles.
but now i just don't know.
i'm just so confused
about so many things.
what should i do?
i know that if i hold out,
things will get better.
sometimes i am in a tunnel.
and theres always a light at the end.
its always my friends and family.
they are always there for me.
i will always and forever love them.
i sit by a window,
my sun is shining through.
i know that i have made it
through the darkness and the pain
i guess what i am trying to say is that,
i love my friends and family with my whole heart.
i hope that they know this.
cause i know that they love me.
ill survive another day.
thanks to my friends and family.
So good to see you once again.
We could sit and talk about it
Or continue on with the journey
Down this road of entity.
It’s a long way
Before we get there.
Many bridges we will ravage,
Before we come home.
We’ll signify on the way,
There is so much ahead of us
I don‘t want to miss.
Look at those meager souls
Out there in the distance,
They seem so vacant.
Can’t they discern?
Through his eyes they will see tranquility.
To conceive a path on the way.
A passage to convey with immunity
On their way home.
Everyone will want to see.
Surely this, they will miss.
As i turn from the distance
To see you beside me,
My focus seized by a reflection.
The shine of deity
within your eyes.
Darkness has receded,
Skies filled luminous red and purple.
The end of the road is sublime,
Over those gates peer into ecstasy.
Hope to identify her facade.
Cant wait to meet him.
My own sea of rebuttal
Needs to be set in place.
Drifted soul in the shadows
Squint toward divinity.
This road is far too long
To be stricken with reason.
He doesn’t believe you can’t see.
Surely this, you will miss.
Ascending on my own
Lamenting positively while no one's around
Orbiting and subsiding
Negotiating with my imaginary ghosts
Eager to reach my goals
Long for arms that truly love
Inside them find everlasting happiness
Vehemently pray for blessings
Endure any battle which seems endless
Love-sickness is a harsh test
Avoid being alone and if it saddens you
Use widsom to guide your steps
Go beyond all expectations
Heighten your passion for life
Love kindly and be compassionate
Offer sincere, honest advice
Valuate what's precious and fair
Empty yourself of rancor and live longer
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
My Heart, Calls,
For A Hero.
To Sweep me out of my chains.
I will be, here.
Waiting for one day
For your Glow of Victory
To Swipe me and Break this Chains
That Bind Me, against my will.
All keep Singing for you to get my Message.
The Little Will left for you, is what keeps me alive.
Now, your close so hear me, am Here..
Shining like the Pillars Of Venus.
Now hear this Song, that will guide you.
I see you now.
I will be happy in your arms
So just keep on the belief and I will be waiting.
For you to defeat, the Darkness that seal me away from you.
Tears of Joy running down my Skin, in just seeing your presence at last.
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.
One day warm; next day cold,
A life time place once my home.
The out-skirts barrier looking in
stand dazed and confused....
A broken heart cry's no one
listens I step away from the only
one thats true...
She'll continue to weep knowing
she's not adequately equipt by
facing this world alone is not enough.
A child now looks for comfort to
A stranger's eye! trust that I will be
safe to return to walk these streets
where I was once special to heart,
I'd hoped to salvage consequences of
action to face my maker.
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.
once there was an old man on a lane
he always had many cats
then he took a train
and went down another lane
Vivacious little girl dances in the day,
Indescribable comfort penetrates cemented walls,
Condemnation retreats, as love exposes truth,
Tremendous gratitude abounds, taking root in rich soil,
Obvious transformation, brings forth everlasting peace,
Reconstruction reveals a spring of living water,
Inspired by old mountains transformed into an endless sea,
Openly refreshed and polished like a diamond once in the rough,
Universe marvels at the wonders of the artists hands,
Stars shimmer and reflect all that has been called forth.
By: Sabina Nicole
Many are the cards I send
Each friend and relative near and far
Reaching out with a stamped wish
Remembering those that mean the most
You are on my list
Celebrating this special day
Hearth and home all decorated
Resting little, preparing much
Inside my heart, they all play a part
Season of contentment, season of beauty
To each and all that are inside me
Many wishes come your way
Answers resplendent in my mail
Season of hope and love
My sister siting calm in the chair,
I know all i do is stair,
she then looks over and gives me a glare,
My sister so beautiful yet so scared,
I watch her sleep every now and then,
to make sure she is breathing,
I hope that she will not have a seizer,
My sister hard working and a normal kid,
Every now and then i have tears to shed,
I sometimes think if she never catches her breath she might end up dead,
My life would not make sense,
My sister cocky yet so nice,
she always comes to me and ask for advice,
What hurts is watching her go through so much pain,
but then she has strength to gain,
My sister everything to me,
I hope that one day she will get better,
and i shall hand my mother this beautiful letter.
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
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.

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.
B elieving that there is always a right start.
E ndless heartaches is not what life is about.
G od sees you praying with your shiniest desires.
I t will just come mysteriously like a magical ride.
N ever ever surrender if you failed to do something
A lways start at the beginning and retry it my friend.
G od smells the scent of your sweet scent of happiness
A lways trust and submit yourself to Him.
I f you are tired of trying to make things possible,
N othing’s going to happen!
Believe me! I was there…
Creativity in the soul
Obsession for goal
Passion in the heart
You have a start
Relax in the mind
Inner strength defined
God in the thought
Help is never sought
Think clear, No fear
In this dream...
Scream -- the figment of a dream, but so much more
Confusion rakes my brain, closes each door
Right from the start, he has meandered through my visions
Empty and cold, I find him making my decisions
Adding painful secrets that stain my real life...and there's
Much more to come...with the force of a knife...
In this dream of reality...
Many people don’t
Understand all the
Limitations we face.
These affect each
Individual differently yet
People continue to
Laugh when we
Experience “MS Moments”
Some moments like:
Cognitive and memory
Loss along with
Extreme fatigue can
Ruin plans with
Others because even
Stress can make
Individuals with MS
Suffer a relapse
C ompiling drops of coated beauty,
L ightly crooning simplicity among
E arly blossoms of blooming colors,
A rdent sensations chant along…
N umerous droplets of tender rain,
S hall sluice upon ebony pain, and shall
E ternally sway among the ivory of skies,
Christmas Love Came Down
Christmas cheers chime as chubby cheeked children anticipate and wait.
Hoping that they have lived well enough for presents up to this date.
Reality relies on the realizations that love from parents and God give joy. Really!
Infinite love shares Santa tales enticing dreams of toys for girls and boys.
Dream-like love shows as Santa sits in malls with smiles; children sharing hopes.
Tantalizing wistfulness wanders through young hearts that overtake rational scopes.
Mesmerizing melodies with memories of merriments or maladies gone mad.
Alas, across all aquifers amid alluring skies, altered human awareness seizes…
Santa Clause, a man whose love, once endured the gravest times. Image, freezes!
Legendary love embraced. He lived a life of giving to humble hearts. He eased fears.
Oh, how his happy helping hallowed our Lord and Savior. Saving secret tears.
Very well, Saint Nicholas followed teachings and examples of his Lord, our Lord.
Every night, out of sight, he would secretly deliver. Food and gifts all poverty adored.
Caring and sharing He gave of his wealth to his fellow man with needs.
Almighty God looked down and blessed him more for his good deeds.
Miracles and hope uplifted kindhearted men who in those days joined in.
Eliminating selfish ways, demonstrating love like Christ had shown on earth to men.
Deliverer exemplified by the actions of one caring man. A man, like Christ with myrrh.
Offerings of love, gifts given celebrate Jesus Christ, our Savior's holy birth.
We show our love for Him when unto others we, like Him, help them abide.
Needing no glory for the good we give, since Christ came down. His love thrived.

Poetry Soup Member Contest LOVE CAME DOWN
Sponsored by: Brian Strand
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.
See my sun-
It smiles high;
Defeat becomes fun;
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.
Pure in heart for I shall see God
Work through my struggles all my days
For He is with me in all things
I shall not be afraid
One day freedom comes
Walking head held high
Jesus is my Savior, He is my light
Knowing He is near, no need for fright
Worries ought not to live in me
No place near when God’s around
Free from sins and old demons
Because of Him I’m no longer bound
Every step is planned by Him
Breath that fills my lung preordered
How could I not see this before?
HE was always in my corner
Redeemer is He
Jesus Christ, Heavenly King
Father, Abba, maker of me
Holy Spirit, brings me peace
POWER is He that gives me strength
To get through each and every day
I fight, fall, have given up don’t want to go on
It’s Him that lifts me off the ground carries me all the way
Forever is what will happen
At times ridiculous, and others tragic
Taking a step closer to it everyday
Egregious sometimes too
Having nothing but joy and ecstasy
Abhoring nothing and loving all
Praying that others can be joyous too
Pleasing to be with
Yearning forever peace and love
Love…..is all you need
Open…..what your heart desires
Volume…..the silence is deafening
Emotions…..how 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…..to climb out of the hole
Resolve….. A peace within my heart
Salvation…..saves me from myself
Allege…..to bear witness to the truth
Living …..What we all should do
Life….it is yours for the taking
Be still my heart for you are all right.
this love you have is worth the fight,
these shadows will pass
you will see light.
don't be troubled anymore then you are,
you have already made it this far,
so you have hope for tommrow,
and live for today,
still think about him and say it's okay.
let him live his dreams and you as well.
even though your heart is going through hell,
sing those songs of happyness,
just scream it out,
don't let your confidence have self dought.
for the future will come and there he will be,
even though he said he cares
lets just hope he don't give up on thee,
say he will come back no matter what,
please don't let your lonely heart shut.
one day he will see,
in the end your the one to be.
By and by you might just agree.
Undeniably life is just floating free.
Babies are gorgeous, we all do agree.
Blowing bubbles, there are cute to see.
Living life is the same, to some degree.
Each one of us looking out in esprit,
Seeking way out of life’s, bubbles spree.
Never-ending aftershocks of yesterday’s tomorrow has settled in my mind’s eye…there’s so much out there to look forward to…I’d rather not die, but indeed, I must live to see the light of day take wing from on high! Cleanse me with your hope, oh Lord of Accord and you are so perfectly imperfect to me…and you shine bright like a diamond in the cave and you mirror my pain with healing, crystal-clear rain! I’m out of my mind in the past, present and future…what’s my fate? What is there in store for me? Why do I hestitate? I hesitate for the sake of Your honor-packed jubilance, not his blasphemed envy! Good news (It’s intriguing! Very!) – I’m suriving and still standing tall; bad news (nothing brand-new or exciting really): I failed the test with a F- for failure to the extreme…your sub-zero eyes see right through me and I can feel the coals heating up in my heart! I’m mad to begin with and I’m sick of breaking apart! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! Deal with the cards, roll the dice. Feel my words – you’re my livin’ sacrifice! We need a happily ever after after all! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! You kill’d me inside and out and I won’t pout like a child, running about! You killed me with your lonesome song and I have no slight doubt about that, if you know what I am speaking of no doubt! Are you damaged by your suicidal depression? Do you have any clue what I’ve been through? Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! I am a money saver, but a worthless beggar or an ungrateful waster OR a real big spender ~ I don’t mean to offend a single soul or drive anyone insane in any way, shape or form…I am just telling you the truth straight out of my brain while I lay down and type this verse up in my solitary, yet unique, wild and stunning-blue dorm…avoiding a bee swarm like escaping a windstorm with stingers flying all around me every direction I turn! Every angle I watch, there is danger looking at me straight in the eyes…replicating the death stare of the Lord of the Flies…my hope and faith withers and dries like a weed, left in the sun…pulled up from the ground by the gardener himself…rotting away…today…
Errands are available to run any time you want….confuzzled beyond belief…give us brief relief & relieve us from gripping, glad-less grief…sadness swept over us like a dust storm, spiraling like the fire in my stove-hot soul…blood zips through my veins and it’s giving me more brains to write with my eternal might with tranquility & peace in mind…clustered ruins reduce me to ash and dust…I’m not priceless as dashing cash, but to try my hardest to pass the test – I must! I must bust a move to win the audience’s attention and shake off the body-quaking sensation, leading me to falling victim to torturing tension . . . every move I make….every dollar I spend…every time I waste time…every time you lie to me instead of telling me the truth of the situation you’ve encountered or the stories you share with a fake smile of glee pasted on your moon-shaped face, I always find myself puzzled out of reason and logic! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! Havin’ no where to write my feelings down, wearing an upside down time two frown! I drown in the tears of my sorrow…no tomorrow…for the meantime, it’s yesterday’s tomorrow…there’s so much treasure to dig up and there’s so much money to borrow still, though you still owe a few fines for an overdue book; however you have tons and tons of loans coming your way (I wanted to make your day the greatest day in your financial life, indulging you with dough and pride!)…read on & pen on, dear child…remain mild, calm, reserved and self-controlled, yet you should still be that wild child I adore with a passion so clever, playful and wild like the wonderful wind, put at ease with wishes without an end! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! Caught under your wicked spell or a trippy trance … … … … … …I lost my train of thought & I am left to rot.
Touch me in the mettled heart of faith tenderly
Hear my prayers rise in praise, and emptied to kneel
Eternal God, before thy grace. What echoes now in me?
Power beseaching with sin blistered tongue for glory
Raft of mercy on angel wings lifted making the story
Atonement gifted merging tension and compassion
Yearning prophetically for historic provisions made
Embrace of grace and faith with love's wide submission
Remembering hope is unwatered flower that does not fade
s- is for sunday a day of the week
u-is for union that you have with your family
n-is for nagative when the rain poors from the sky
s-is for snowcone all frozen and cold
h-is for hunny that the beez like to eat
i-is for icecream that you eat everyday of the year
n-is for naughy or nice its almost that time of year
e-is for exacellent what a great poem i wrote!
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“.
Preferring to accomplish one’s goal instead of listening to the pessimistic angel play
Assertively attracted by the adrenaline rush one feels whenever he has
accomplished one of the many of his goals in a life’s area.
Salaciously entranced by anything that brings bewilderment to oneself through
performing repetitive rituals.
Sagaciously knowledgeable in merging time and creativity in order to fulfill one’s
Inflating one’s mind with muscle memory through performing repetitive acts, while
he inquiries the yogi.
Obliging to one’s self-control to help him maintain continuous endeavors of extreme
challenges, however still somersaulting in the pools of pleasures that comes
from being a wino.
Nagging oneself to digest all hindrances that cross his path and to laugh at
everyone that believes him to be rather plain.
Associating oneself with people that share the same joy as himself when viewing a
painting of a chimera.
Tremendously full of a vigorous amount of self-motivation that pushes oneself over
every extreme and limit.
Engaging in several festivities in order to celebrate his achievements and hopes for
a progressive future.
Blazing temptations are true destiny,
Erotic desires created, from the start
Caressing our bodies, we are free.
Awakened bliss beyond creative art.
Undulating heartfelt completeness,
Sensational lasting addictedness,
Exuberance full of much sweetness,
Overcome and captured all of me.
Facilely, you will sanctify me.
Yet with no venal between each soul,
Opalescent victory from our control,
Unbelievably, he guides our role.
For contest by Matt Caliri
Crawling, furry pet
Aggressive, yet so lovable
Trying to get any sign of attention and winning it
No worries planted in their feeble brains
Attractive and a clever animal
Pleasurable extra family member, always keeping me busy!
Cody of you I ponder
Obessed with concern and wonder
Desiring a good life and joy
Yearning for you to be a happy boy
Just come close to me
Understand my desire for thee
Standing beside you all the way
Thinking there will be a better day
I love you and always will
Now and untill God calls me and then better still
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.
I repent, and turn away from my sin.
Viciously desperate, I invite You in.
Enter my heart, renew my mind.
Now I leave my past behind.
Jubilance is key to living a good and happy life! Live life to the fullest with me! Man, I can relate to you! We all go through our ups and downs! I wish you good luck and fortune in this life.
Umm…I’m speechless – you make me smile all the way! You make my day, buddy! Can you help me stay on track? I'm thankful that you got my back and got rid of the debt stack!
And…I’d like to ask you – Can you sprinkle your salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor? In other words, can you inspire me to run the extra mile? Can you set my passion aflame and help me to stay strong till the end? You are the light on the surface of the chaotic ocean…
Never stop believing and trying with all of your might – run and take flight until you reach the finish line! We will both thrive if we just strive…I can see you’re running fast and hard just by the sweat of your brow! Wow, you amaze me by your talents…WOW!
(Hope you liked my somewhat weird poem!)
If you find what your looking for
Need some advise on some amour,
Never thing that you're the blame
Even if you're not the same.
Rely on only you.
Soon you will find that someone
Remembering just who you are,
Even if you're too far.
Now listen girl,
Got to find your inner strength.
Throwing your life away
Hasn't made your life the same.
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
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
Human, is part of the word humane.
Universally, we should all be human.
My worries are; have we become insane.
Animals are to be treated, the best we can.
Nearer to God, we should be without distain.
If you mistreat an animal, that would be inhuman.
Tell me why, we allow so much worldly, human pain.
Yet, we all strive to save animals, with much acumen.
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.
I Peter 2:19
Sound's all around,
nothing making any since
Trying to block it all out.
Voice's of God is Quiet
does he here me?
I pray for so many people,
but their is to many
I can't get to them all.
Lord I'm not strong,
but through you I know
I can do all things.
Crying what pain
I see, and here.
What do I do now?
I give it all to your holy throne
Leave the sword at your feet.
A little baby dying,
A mother crying,
A father hoping,
A broken heart,
A pray sent out,
A dog lost,
A grand father searching
A golden gate,
So, party with me in this passionate, illuminated night; there’s a disco ball hanging by the last thread – off with your head if you don’t fight what I call the greatest fight – stand tall and give it your all and you’ll stay by my side this shining night! Shimmer anew like fresh drops of dew on the green, green grass, for the grass on the other side of the hill is fading away into desert land….dry with remorse, hot with discord, getting outtah course, the expense – they must afford without uttering a single sound-of-a-word! Release your wings from bondage’s chains and take wing out of your captivity’s cold chambers that buried under by the snow of the perilous past!~ I lost my hopeful speeches that has been tucked into my memory files…We need a happily ever after after all! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! You kill’d me inside and out and I won’t pout like a child, running about! You killed me with your lonesome song and I have no slight doubt about that, if you know what I am speaking of no doubt! Are you damaged by your suicidal depression? Do you have any clue what I’ve been through? Anxiety took a toll on you – you’re in its session…it’s controlling you like a puppet, doing whatever the puppet master tells it to do! You are fenced in by the absence of hope and the approval of avarice appeal! Ignorant to the time, drifting away from your grasp! You hold your breath and you gasp! At last, you understand how important it is to immediately dispose of your expense! Just reap what you sow and pay up for your sins! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! For some odd reason, I love uneven numbers…some say they love even numbers, but whatever suits their fancy, or as I say it, whatever floats their demented boats!!
Nothing is always the answer.
Everything is sometimes an enhancer.
Value the most important things.
Raise your voice, and say something not too vengeance.
Talk to seomeone who's enough to trust.
Often say things that densest.
Love just enough to be the greatest.
Amaze the surroundings and be the smartest.
Tuition for this world.
Easy as can be.
X is the second part of EXPENSE, the acrostic series.......
X-tremely NOT un-cheap! X-ray my pain that’s been going off track like a
wacko, kid’s train…you got me sidetracked and distracted on the road of
ecstatic paradise & entangled reverie… it drives me to insanity & I’m
unfortunately slipping into the next languishing, lament-cemented, little
driven insane – if only you would look through my pain-staking pane…you
aren’t pensive, but rather judgmental and loud as hell on Mount Heavens!
Passion in me rots & it wasn’t ripened with rose-beauty & reserved reverie…
I’m climbing the Mountain of Gracious Glory, gaining back my alienated
ambition – I know where the wind do blow…it sweeps something grand into
my brain and seeps inside of my body altogether…it marinates in my brain
signals and I receive thoughts of endless sensations and brilliant ideas!
Reality’s mere demise ripens my rage, intimately concealed inside of me…
yet, I am looking up at His sun-quenched sight and I appreciate His
that bestow happiness upon my lips, ascending them into a knitted smile of
heavenly approval and bringing me to my delicious haven…Deplorable
Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of
honey dens or hives! God has a way with words & Jesus Christ has a way
His words…It’s extraordinary how Moses led the people to the Promiseland,
despite the hardships they encountered with before they got what they
looking for & everything there made them dance merrily & it was divine
shelter, protected and looked after by God, Most High of the Highest
Beyond Limitless Levels Above US All! It’s brilliant how Noah made the Ark
save the animals and his family and friends with God’s helping hand and led
them to the grandest land of all! God is good and gracious forevermore!
is REMARKABLE beyond measure…better than all of our pleasures combined
into one! The most powerful, loving Creator of all time! No one can beat
Not even Satan himself – compared to God, he is a scrawny little rat,
by his tail by the Cherished Cat! Every move I make….every dollar I spend…
every time I waste time…every time you lie to me instead of telling me the
truth of the situation you’ve encountered or the stories you share with a
smile of glee pasted on your moon-shaped face, I always find myself
out of reason and logic!! Doused in drastic, darkening dread!! ~
P is the third part of Expense, the acrostic series.......
Practically, my cup is half full instead of half empty, but I am proven
wrong! I’m swimming in the river of my emotional debt mixed with other
distinctive debts…doused in drastic dread! Is this reality in a nut shell or is
this frankly living hell? Where does your high spirits truly dwell? Keep in
clean, you gutter mind of a foolish man in PRISON for committing HURTFUL
crimes – he has to pay up so much – his expense is SKY-HIGH, but he is
not shy to pay it up and he longs to fly again with un-tattered wings, but
fails greatly due to HIS poor decision making…who knows why he did the
things he did, which leads to his ultimate consequence – his absence of
life…the aftershocks of his death still haunts the prison to the extreme-est
of the extreme! He haunts and taunts all that come in – once you’re in, you
never, ever come out no matter what! My noggin is runnin’ wild in circles
and my mind is whirling like a seething storm that’s body-quaking me…
controlling me like a steel-made robot…these particular pangs of regrets
makes my guilty conscience overflow with low self-esteem and anguish…
lamentation has fallen upon us all! We all must stand tall…remember to
brave & hop over our obstacles optimistically and assertively like a horse
during his training for the biggest race he has ever trampled into! Do you
have any clue what I’ve been through? My notions that are spinning around
in my brain is like the vegetables, water & the spices, mixing well & swell
into a stew, restoring peace to my verse…Is my life a gift or a curse? Is my
life overflowing with mirth? I wish I can give a portion of it on Earth to
avoid making destructive actions…I need several tragedies in reverse to
settle me down and make complete my fulfillments! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey
dens or hives! I’ve been losing my mind since the day of my birth and so on
and so forth! Need I say more? I have so many research projects to
explore! There is so much GOLD to find! Maybe I’m just a boy, tattered,
torn and sadly, blind! I hope you don’t mind, Lord – forgive me, oh Lord of
Accord! I need to just forget and forgive the past & move forward in the
guiltless future! I NEED TO RUN THE EXTRA MILE LIKE A RUNNER, REACHING
TO THE FINISH LINE! Give me the strength to move on! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey
dens or hives! I WANT TO RUN THE EXTRA MILE LIKE A RUNNER, REACHING
TO THE FINISH LINE AND I’M FEELIN’ FINE WITH MY HEART, POUNDING
WITH DREAD-LESS AND UNEXPIRED DETERMINATION…NOT EVEN TIRED….
OH no, not at all – I run with my pack of wolves and I’m as sturdy as a
wall, giving it my all…
Desires to be a better person.
Reaching up high even when feeling low.
Everyday going after what you want.
Always working diligently.
Motivating yourself to seeing,
Success streaming as a river.
Remember you are never truly alone
Enjoy the talents you possess and share them.
Learn from your mistakes and grow in faith.
Invite others to smile, to love, to be unselfish.
Equally distribute the message and your kindness.
Find relief in knowing you are with God.
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!

Why is it we always believe profits of doom of words.
Only human nature believes the worst and hope for best
Reality is that we strive to be worried in great herds.
Listening to the worst of times hiding from our zest.
Dealing in hardship and bigotry, when we are all the same,
Seduction of evil seems to be all and everyone’s game.
Evil is not the demon we should be fighting against today.
Nearer to each other, we should be and that would be the way.
Driving away prophetic doom, precious peace would play.
Timeless wonder, God breathing through just men
Herald of the truth, Christ's coming again
Emanuel's gift setting the world free
Book of all books, unfolding grace, exult
Invitation to meet his free embrace
Bridge across the gulf of sin, love's tumult
Laws divine in which his power I trace
Eternal word, no wisdom shine like thee
Hancing your life to further points.
Applying yourself to more conjoints.
Proud of life and your self-esteem
Proud of you following your dream.
I am trying to hold up my dreams.
Now I am looking at what seems
Something great, like happiness.
Before you say you failed again, you must start.
Even before pride can be lost, you must try.
Tell me you have begun, without any part,
Realize that waiting is not enough for a cry.
Again you say, tried I have and failed myself.
You must commence an action for it to fail.
Early on, we learn that pride sets on a shelf.
Dear sweet one; you have my faith for sale.
Another year has passed; I shared your burden.
Gaining hope; expecting some movement at first.
Ageless drug obligation in youth an overburden,
I had faith, funds of love, I made matters worst.
Now betrayed, I await downfall, I unburden.

E ntertainment that’s free.
W ork that doesn’t break your back.
Y early check ups at a free clinic for
E yes and ears – the gift of sight and sound.
A coat to keep out the freezing cold.
R espect in the New Year!
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.
Gag at the thought that i actually liked you
Over you i became so very quickly
Oh how my heart sings now that your in much sorrow
Death to you would do nothing but please me
Because of what you have done to me in the past
You shall receive all the pain you gave to me
Eternity in hell will serve you right
Can it survive without hope, honor, and compassion?
Intensifying anger, prejudice, and fright, in any fashion,
Validates the corruption, destruction of the human race,
Insecurities fear, and dishonor is what we must face.
Learning to collectively share, stop the bigotry now.
Individualism completely supported, with a solemn vow.
Zeal for togetherness, love, and consideration for all,
Acting civilized only is the key to humankinds fall.
Telling each other we are cultured will not make it so.
I am not sure that the human race can rise from its low.
Only living each day refining ourselves, will find the key.
Now and onward of tomorrow will the true enlightened see.
Take notice of all the beauty that surrounds you.
He is alive; the truth is inside your heart so true.
Everyone has doubts at some point, all of us do.
Emerald a jewel with such beauty with glitter too,
My spirit has faith even when my mind says for who?
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.
S warmed despair,
O paqueness gleaned among cold air,
L ingering…I linger, linger, linger….
A wakening virtue devoured my sleeping soul,
C onjuring my intuition…reviving,
E nlivening, as I kneel down and pray…
Shelter here sweet child of fragile soul.
Take refuge from those raging
Rapids of life, threatening to
Overpower and drown you in misery.
Navigate your way past the taunting
Ghosts of past regrets and
Turn to Me once more.
Open the swollen eyes of your sorrow
Weary one and come hither.
Embrace My forgiveness and fear not;
Run to Me and I will welcome you home.
C herish and maintain
H ope and faith
I n God our Father
L ord of all creation who rules
E ternally in every situation
FOR THE PEOPLE OF CHILE- hold on to your faith, regardless!
Securing the welfare of humanity was the key.
Preparing for the worst, with the best yet to see,
Independence is worth anything, to be free.
Rich of blood, the first to know it was Royalty.
Intelligence was what drove it to you and me.
Total freedom never been honored to thee.
Our blessings are richer then ancestors decree.
Fences unblocked, time will decide what will flee.
Ideas change, but basics, will always remain to be.
Not just honor from death, peace will continue to plea.
Disillusion of many, what true freedom brings to degree.
Each of us must set in our hearts, peace, do not you agree.
Preparing to lay waste to all our selfish and childish debris,
Enchantingly the hopes that all good things come in threes,
Never delivering any work, to win, the remaining jubilee.
Demanding it will never come from any political party.
Each of us may never buy it or find on any marquis.
Not yet to be supplied or gave in any major quantity,
Challenges of this “Spirit of Independence” are our destiny.
Exoneration of all our guilt will teach us its identity.
Release the victory of my heart; I seek the most.
Evaluate my soul’s contentment, so secured.
Let me live the life I was destined to breath.
Examine my mind the dreams are lying round.
Attack the entity that inhabits my personality.
Seal my trepidation; release my equanimity.
Examine my fantasy; allow its reality out.
Mine is a battle, inconceivable within this time.
Evangelical intervention, I wait for my genesis.
Most Go By unnoticed
I have witnessed a few
Really now ~ Haven't you ever seen one?
All around you they happen
Careful how you believe that they don't occur!
Look around you.
Everything you see is Miraculous. Even you!
Search your heart~ You'll understand! All life is a miracle.
Praying that I finally am
Productive in every action this
Year and ever after.
New year’s resolutions
Evolve into I
Wish I coulds’’
Yes here I go again
Every year wanting to
Appear smaller as the world
Revolves again around the sun.
Happiness is what you take away from your life as good.
All things must have a plus and a negative to survive.
Prophecy says God allowed evil to exist, destroy it he could.
Pure goodness without evil will someday arrive.
I wish that only positive things were plausible now.
Never to know hunger, pain, any suffering any more.
Each of us would never know sadness, you say Wow!
Since there would be no negative, how would it score?
Since only joy existed, we would not know of contentment.
I do not think god had this planned for us while on Earth.
Salvation is yours of worth, your release from this abatement
emotional velocity halted..
safe and secure.. spiritless..
Layers of pain.. eclipse
and enclose..restricting ..
Languish not behind the wall..
surrender to the magnitude of emotion..
Escape the enchantment of safety..
passions unleashed.. fireworks erupting
Delight in the wonder of Love..
thrill to the sensations of life!
~ rejoice as the bricks tumble..
~ shout as the wall falls....
E is for the everlasting love you showed years ago to me
M is for the miles that separate us that shouldn't have to be
M is for the moments and memories that together we share
I is for the intimacy that in each our lives since has been ever so rare
T is for the trust between us that has always seemed to be there
T is for the tenderness that showed me just how much for me you cared
E is for your eyes to which one day I hope again into them I can stare
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.
Courage and boldness we have forgotten in these days.
Our ancestors had only future expectations to live for.
Maybe, we have slaughtered the ideas; they had in a way.
People relaxed and comfortable, nothing new in store,
Laziness of no dreams or desires; we have it all today.
Anxious not for any changes, let us keep it the same.
Centuries of ruins would not exist, if they had no fire.
Expressing nothing that we have now, without a game,
Now think; where we would be, without their simple desire,
Trapped with no mechanics, science, or exploration aim,
Dreams are what made us, this so-called great nation.
Everyone wants to fight progress, save the past notion.
Salvation of our ancestor’s greatness is in information.
I want to preserve historic ideas, creations in contemplation.
Relics, continued treasure, do not forget about expansion.
Events from the past show we are full of personification.
Secure the now, and then stand firm for forward motion.
Cradle me in darkness, before my flight.
Relaxing let me live my dream so true.
Again, I entreat you to set my desires free.
Delight my senses set my vision in truth.
Laugh not at wishes; they are my design.
Earthborn from the Angels delivered here.
My existence a falsehood for way to long,
Only you can bring my caprice to reality.
One soul delivered from a torment I live.
Now cradle moon bring peace to your child.
Lighting and burning inside
As his breading frails,
A building and overflow
Drips through his face and nails.
The world has his flesh
Tied and lashed, still giving sweet exhales.
Shedding loved tears
As his crown is to bash.
But a light that goes
And awakens the few,
Yet kept and kept
Even in struggle with brother foes.
And just when a call
From questions face,
With a dim shine
And a fallen grace.
Humbled is asked, for roads
To nobler days.
In shadows a beaten man rises
To light paths, to untaken ways.
Li'l Angels, Child-aged old
Long time, lost out in the cold
Like clay were you shaped into a mold
Of What Not To Be, after you by Momma had been told
Now, for your safe return, We must be bold
Although, the rainbow's end lacks a pot of gold
On the idea that it's a loss, should We not be sold
Ordering the Authorities more areas patrolled
As if fate in Our hands is controlled
Wanting back What from Us had been stoled
Despite, it could cause Our heads to be swolled
But, for this should it be life without parole
The conviction made based on the Windows of the Soul
For it hurts MEMORY LANE being strolled
Repeatedly, taken on Our hearts a toll
Not having Our child, in arms to hold
C_ourageous, consistent, constant, constrained by Love.
H_onest, holy, humble, holding fast to the Word of God.
R_ighteous, reborn, regenerated, renewed and restored.
I_nstructed in righteousness, immortality assured.
S_anctified, sincere, submissive, self-controlled, secure, saved by grace through
T_ruthful, thankful, thoughtful, trusting God's Will to be done in His name.
I_mperfect but daily seeking for perfection, improving inwardly by the Spirit.
A_nointed, appointed, an holy vessel of praise and thanksgiving.
N_urturing, noble, new life with and in Christ-
S_tanding, stedfast, immoveable, always abounding in the Word and Work of the
God of all Creation and Christ Jesus our Lord.
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.
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.
Chocolate with whip cream steaming
Holiday spirit beaming with each sip
Radiating with His love and joy for all
Ice cream with a cherry on my apple pie
Santa and his sleigh is coming tonight
Tomorrow the stockings will be graced
Moving and singing with love and delight
Alas, the angels send praises from heaven
Surrounding us with His grace and tidings
Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves, the
Ones who cannot understand, for everyone for his own gain
Looks to his own way from his quarter. Should not the
Vested feed the flocks? Yet, they kill them that are fed and
Eat the fat. They clothe themselves with the wool, while the
Sheep are naked and hungry. These prophets make God’s people err. They bite.
They cry, peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths
Is victimized by ravening, for they do plunder and can
Never have enough as greedy dogs; they are all ignorant,
They are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark;
Sleeping, lying down, and loving to slumber they have not
Healed the sick neither have they strengthened the diseased. With
Effontery they have not bound up the broken, and their
Edifice is fallen for they have not brought again those driven away. These
Pharisees have not sought the lost, but ruling with force and cruelty have
Scattered the sheep because there is no real shepherd.
They have behaved themselves as an hireling, who
Careth not for the sheep and fleeth the face of danger and
Leaveth the sheep to wander through mountains and high hills
Of the earth to become further prey to every beast of the field.
Therefore, ye shepherds, ye den of thieves, God saith, I require my flock at your
Hand and will cause you to cease from visions and feeding yourselves.
I will deliver my flock from your mouth, and they shall be a prey for beasts
No more. I will set one Shepherd over them; He shall feed them. I will be their
God accepting them and their offerings, and I will make them joyful in My house.
Hope is a hope, hope against hope, keeping us to Hope
On and on and on, for the things that make us go On
Perceiving and perceiving the un-certainty of un-Perceiving
Earthly art form: breathe of a life, of which is Earthly
Herculean strength of desire
Of the things in life to acquire
Patience, one must first aspire
Eases, for a while, mind in dire
R emember to fully give of yourself
O nly to that one person, at that time
M indful of the other’s needs and wants
A llowing growth of passion, sublime
N ever put off to tomorrow, that done tonight
C reating a world of love, surround
E ver affecting the future for the two
S haring lover’s secrets, through soft sound
I dream, ‘cos of you, my love!
L: living lovable, letting incense of love
O: overcome the heart’s desires while
V: vibrant lovable vapors capture the soul
E: exquisitely, for everlasting, with love
A blessed greeting, intended, for all
How sweet it is, for, it comes from my soul
Of my acceptance, of you, depart not, from my call
Let not your ignorance, of me, betray your own soul
Your earthly knowledge, depend not, lest you fall
Kiss me in spirit, as I greet you, with a holy kiss
Inspire…and live in my righteousness, my body
Soul for soul, welcome me, with a holy kiss
So that you regain life, by being inside, my body
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
Everyone here, you just have to believe
Walk this earth with words of worth you stand for valiant bound by eternal balance
those who stand behind you will follow you and lay claim in battle for you. Like an
untouched vessel your convictions can with stand untrusting conditions and
external indecision. Born with ruling purpose forgotten by sorrow it is your
motto:"To face a new tomorrow", injustice to fix justice is why your people place
pride close to a glim in a troubled eye. A soldier of fortune wont give way to
crimes of epic proportion you cast a shadow and never will your grace fall
shallow it is your mission to place life in the direct path of certain strife. In your
gods light so be it if you die by Satan's knife your time was well spent rest in
This ache for you
I cannot set free
This ache for you,
what can be
I yearn for you
I burn for you
I breathe you in,
Love it so
The day you went
The day I let you go
Inside I curled
Nothing I can say
This longing to be.......
To be with you
Hear my plea
Stay with me
I want you too
The day I let you go,
crushed my heart so
I cannot set free
What could be
~With All His Love~
L o ve and care with all of your heart and soul

L ove and care with all your heart and soul.
Dorian Petersen Potter
Helplessness is not their weakness
Amiably searching to find their way
Never throwing their hands in
Dealing the cards they continue to play
Ignorance is sadly mistaken
Corrupted minds already at check mate
Anger and frustrated by the unawareness
Poorly trained society is their inevitable fate
Pleased at the simplest achievements
Every day actions we simply dismiss
Disabled is just a word, let us all see the heavenly bliss
