Fall From Grace

I watched angels fall from grace today
I wondered  how could this be
I looked to the heavens to  ask
How  could this have happened 
How could angels  fall so  fast 

I stood there I watched angels falling
I wondered how could this be 
 For aren't angels a part of thee
 He looked down at me and said
 "Yes my dear" indeed they are 


But you see I gave them free will
   When I set them free
Until they come back to me 
I felt a tear roll down my check
As I stood in silence and watched 

Then I laughed and I thought
HE should of chose  me
Then he would of seen 
That I would never  be 
An angel who fell from grace


I watched angels fall from grace today
 I ask myself how could this be
 Why would the powers that be 
 Ever let such a thing happen 


Then I looked up and I saw me
I was the one falling from grace
I remembered He once told me
You will have free will   "till "
you  come back to me 
So I'll  let you be

I watched an angel fall from grace today
But than I realized  that it was me
As I looked into  that mirror
I saw her starring back at me.

 Since I was little I've thought about angels falling, must be the catholic church .

Eve

Does the past really matter?
 Does it set you free? 
I’m absorbed in the sin,
That is surrounding him and me. 

Lost in the curiosity,
Cold to the touch. 
Drenched in the poison,
With my dignity in his clutch.

Feeling like I was cheated;
I chose the evil instead of light.
I traded in the sunshine,
For what lurks in the night. 

I disobeyed his orders,
I gave up security to be unsure.
I went against the warnings,
Gave into darkness instead of remaining pure.

Once my bed was made of soft grass,
But now it is made of stone.
Was plump from all of the luscious fruit,
Now I’m starving to the bone. 

My curse is one of circumstance.
The punishment a crime,
I’m stuck inside this dampened cave,
For the rest of time. 
My world came crashing down,
The grief has not subsided.
My heart broke completely,
When my sons collided. 

My misery a token,
From the abandonment I earned.
Upon the time spent in sorrow,
There was a lesson to be learned.

Have I found the moral?
Only in time we shall see,
For all I did was eat an apple-
From the Knowledge tree.

Wings: My Favorite Things

Angel wings are not feathered but they are real,
Made from lighter stuff and stronger. 
They have a metaphysical feel,
And last an eternity longer.

The feel of an Angel wing is not a sensation like touch.
It’s on a higher more philosophical plane.
The usual senses are only a crutch,
Like trying to explain snow while in the rain.

To feel an angel wing flutter, 
One must “ know thyself ”,
And remove the “me” clutter,
To reveal the naked shelf.

You  know that fellow that always angers you,
And makes you retaliate every time?
Remember recently when he was through,
You smiled and didn’t even mind?

And how with your children, you pray to be patient,
And cry and blow up instead?
Then why today, when they tried your patience,
Those were tears of joy you shed?

These experiences and many others,
When asked for in earnest prayer,
Are simply Angel wing flutters,
Teaching us how to live and care.

These are the feel of Angel wings,
Not privy to the usual five,
But made of heavenly things,
Sublime, real, ..fully alive.

Lord thank you

Oh Holy Spirit you lifted me without wings 
I was overjoyed flying
inside a warm celestial glow 
tears falling golden love
Raising up inside joy sings a Host 
With crystals shining sparkles 
rainbows your light misting promise
I got so much happiness in news tonight
Blessed is You oh Lord
who has just brought me great light for a future ahead
one off the purest kind touched by an angels hand 
To feel a warmness lifting all pain deep inside
saying be proud off love as it's a gift 
pure Heavenly fluttering warmest wings 
I felt my soul elevate dancing on air 
lifting to the Heaven's in a song 
In your Holy name Master one bows in Grace
Clouds pearly white mixed with the softest blue
floating dancing white mixed mother of pearl
on air breathing warm angel wings
Rejoicing in one prayer Holy Lord
in love I honor beautiful
Thank you for granting me 
my lifetime wish come true 
truly a gift I say 
Amen Holy Father

Illuminati

Illuminati, it's your fault you see.
They assault you subliminally,
Criminals you fail to see in these industries.
Invade the subconscious, see your true monsters.
Stomp em, rip em from the brainstem.
It'll infect your REM sleep like venom.
Seeing mental images streaming from heaven
Learn a lesson, for you're their weapon
that'll cause armageddon.
The momentum in their slogans
should tell ya somethin.
So question thee or be a distant
memory in this reality.
Fuck the Illuminati,
they can rot to their knees.
For im truly free or I wouldn't
be writing these...

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door light a old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

My Micke boys

                To be called ..
            ~   Grandma is a Honor ~

        I have been blessed with 4  Grandchildren

       ~ one lays in Heaven " Kaleb "  He is God's Angel ~
   ~ His twin brother he will always watch over , and be in his soul~

     For he loved his Brother so much in the womb ,
       he chose Heaven which gave life to his twin
      ~ I feel his spirit when I see the other Grandson ~
 
              Time passed another gift to see
               we are " Mickes" and Loved 
            Our Dad held the title in Baseball 
                   ~  that's how we roll ~
           those children are Grandmas hero's 

       The Irish they love big and Family is everything 
        The brothers will protect the beautiful sister 
              ~ as many lads will be calling ~

        Every time my Grandson hits a home run
     There will be a Angel watching proudly in the stand 

       It will be as if the Angel lifted him when he runs 
           ~no one runs faster then my Grandson~
     either baseball or Art  ~ you shall find your gift given

                These children have been blessed~
                 ~  a beauty to hard to describe 
        If you think not ~~  Take a look at the Mom  
                     That girl can stop Traffic   
                    after raising three and still~ 

          "Inspired by the gift and loss of Grandchildren "

     May our precious " Kaleb " softly rest where Angels only Dwell

We are Soul

We are Soul 
Please believe me 
Just relax and you will feel me 
Whispering to you in your dreams 
I am you and you are me 
Always together for eternity 
We are one 
Can't you see? 
Always forever never apart 
Living and loving right from the start 
Come let us run for tomorrow awaits 
Waking is so very hard to take 
You know me in your sleep 
But you forget me when you rise 
Please believe in me

Angels In Cemeteries contest

I heard an angel speak last night and he said "write”
I had been going through a personal plight,

I ventured off into a place,
Where all I saw was love and grace,

The season was the beginning of spring,
When life can be heard, and the air starts to sing,

But the place I was in was an endless row of rest,
Yet I was able to admire how well it was dressed,

Glory symbols stationed all around,
One stood tall far off the ground,

Wings wide- ranging, angelic that gleamed,
Surrounded by flowers whose colors were sheen,

Blues of the ocean, reds of the evening sky,
I reflected on greatness, as the time passed by,

I came upon a sculpture, a cherub, with a face,
A tear in his right eye, looking down at this place,

A letter to God leaned against this particular one,
It read clearly on top, “Please Lord, hold my son”

I continued on, walking down this strip,
When suddenly, I slipped and had a hard trip,

I fell by a giant weeping willow tree,
Then looked up at the fixture right in front of me,

Out of all the others, this monument was painted the best,
Its beauty surpassed all of the rest,

I marveled at his golden strands,
His skin looked like the color of sand,

Looking up from off the ground,
It looked as though he wore a crown,

His creamy gown was long and still,
My eyes felt like they had started to spill,

His mere presence seemed to fill me with humility,
My legs were limp, I felt a lack of mobility,

What was this kind, who had made him?
Then, he spoke  “You were never forsaken”

Chills overwhelmed my body quite fast,
I had no idea, I was his task,

I said, "what is your name,"
And He gently sighed,
“Your never alone, just enjoy your life’s ride”

I had been in a struggle, for quite some time,
He spoke once more, “You will be Fine”

His glimmering light calmed my inner plight,
His afterglow, made my heart know,

That sometimes in life we go through a trial,
And even when it seems like it’s lasted awhile,

God sends his messengers right on time,
He is never late, and His words are like wind chimes,

Soothing the mountains, calming the inner storms, 
Restoring us back to our proper forms,

I looked up once more, but He had disappeared,
My faith had grown deeper, and I knew God was near,

I rested a while, under that old willow tree,
I felt compelled to write what had happened to me, 
 
It was now the early part of night, I began with,
"I heard an angel speak last night and he said to write.”

Beautiful day

Oh how  beautiful the day you  gave to me
 
A new and bright glorious day your mercy is new and your love is fresh
 
Lord I desire your ways and  your rest to see your hand touch my life
 
Is great and peaceful and keeps me right
 
 
 
I stand  and look inside my soul
 
The way you make things unfold
 
The little things Lord they make me new
 
The touch of the wind gives me life from  you.
 
 
The flowers and  there fragrance are lifting me up
 
I love you Lord your precious to me even though I fail and wander you take me in and make me humble
 
Your  ways are glorious why can't the world see the light you  give inside me take my hand Lord help me be
 
The woman you made when you set me free.

THE FALLEN ANGEL

A far away rumbling draws near,
An eerie calm, ensues all things,
Remain still. 
Silence reigns, nature holds,
It's breath,
Carried upon shifting winds
Hear soft whispers calling, beware.
Heavens valets brake open,
Thunder quakes,
Lightening flashes splitting the,
Clouds apart.
Castaways refugee, descends,
Pleading,
Do not forsake me.
Death's shadows dance to and fro.
A crumpled figure lies motionless,
Bare pale flesh, warmed only by,
Mangled wings tattered remnants. 
White feathers drifting aloft,
Aimless,
Sorrows innocent victim beseeching,
Forgiveness on bloody grounds,
Rough surf.
Humanities guardian, 
Regrets shameful,
Reminder a fallen angel.
All grace replaced by broken,
Hearts loss.
With trembling hands, bony fingers,
Scratching at loosened soil.
Here she makes a holy symbol,
The sign of the cross.
Forgiving lord, heavenly father. 
Bring me home unto thee.
In shroud's pitch blackness,
Beneath darkness’s abyss.
God weeps, behold gentle rains,
Merciful tears.
Thy lost lamb seeks salivations solos.
Redemption’s everlasting light,
Shines from above. 
Guiding kindred’s dearest child to,
Loves unspoken embrace.

An Angel Comes

Sometimes in our life an angel comes,
To spend some time with us below.
The time may last but only a short time,
Or it may last a life time filled with love.

Sometimes in life an angel comes
To guide us along when life is rough
And our faith is low. They come
And stay until we are on our way.

Sometimes when life seems all down hill'
An angel comes to clear the way,
To bring the sun on a cloudy day.
God sent you an angel to light your way.

As much joy as she brought to you'
You also gave to her when your lives entwined.
Within you she will always be.
So when your heart is down and sadness is around

Just reach down deep inside and feel
The warmth of her love come shinning through'
For she will always be but a kiss away.
Sometimes in life an Angel comes
To bring to you the comfort of God's love.

raised from the dead

three women with points on their licenses to the tomb of Jesus they ventured
as they had a love for our Savior that was totally uncensored
they were told that the Roman soldiers over His tomb were standing guard
but they had a need to consecrate His body that compelled them to do their part
it was risky and unreasonable in the minds of most
but man's reasoning has no value when it comes to our Heavenly Host
to do the impossible that is what they desired
and with the power of the Holy Spirit they were then inspired
to walk by faith and not by sight guided by God's spiritual light

and when those women got to the tomb they then discovered 
that the sepulcher of Jesus was now uncovered
no Roman soldiers were in sight 
just an Angel of God wearing raiment snow white
"fear not" the Angel said, for the prophecy has been fulfilled
the Messiah  Jesus has risen from the dead for it is God's will
the mighty stone had been rolled away
it was a bold godly display

do you know that God will roll away any stone that impedes your life?
as He rolled away the stone at the tomb of His beloved Son Jesus the Christ
to be raised from the death of corruption and sin
restored, renewed, revived and born again
raised up from societal barriers of destruction
now a new creation in Christ's gospel production
the Lord desires that we live abundantly
and to walk with the power of His authority
so never forget the sacrifice and the blood that was shed
when Jesus the Christ by the hand of God was raised from the dead

The Secret Behind A Woman's Pain

You believe your better than me?
Just because of the bruises you see?
So why don't you just hit me again, hit me

Your afraid because I now know who I am
Your deranged your the one who can't understand
Your nothing to me your a silly boy not a man

I will no longer sit in misery and hear your cries
I will no longer listen to your stupid and pitiful lies
As you fall to your knees and say your sorry,
For the blue and black bruses you had put on me,

And after another night of pain I dry my tears
For I can hear the voice of an angel near
I can mouth out the words there almost clear
For  the angel says : "I am with you do not fear"

And then the voice fades and dissapears
I then think to myself what have I been doing here
How I have lived like this for many years

As I see him rest on the bed
With his arms wide open and spread
Vodka in one hang and the bible in the other
I tuck him in on both sides of the covers

I take one look at him and then at the door
A voice says: "Go you just can't take anymore"
But I say what if it gets better what if he can change
But what if it doesn't what if he just stays the same

If I step out what will be there for me
I then think about our past and all of our history
I can't take it he's gone insane
He's not the man I married on our wedding day

And as I walk out with my suitcase in one hand
I look at the trailer park and can't understandd
Reaching for the hope seeing the sun rise up
All I think now is what else the Lord will fill in my cup

Angel of Death

I see that they are grieving,
But I know I'll be ok,
The Angel sitting next to me,
Has come to take away...
The doubts that I am having,
All the pain that I am in,
Forgiving my discretions,
And the last time that I sinned...
The loved ones that surround me,
Drown in tears of disbelief,
As I try and raise my hand,
To bring some solace to their grief...
But the rhythm of deep thumping,
Of my heartbeat thru the bed,
Resonates a fading frequency,
That's slowing down instead...
As the Angel helped me rise,
After taking my last breath,
Took a look into my eyes,
And blessed the body that was left 
I don't know just what I'm feeling,
But I'm glad it took so long,
As I float above the ceiling,
Filling gospel with my song...

 In the distance I see heaven,
Just beyond some pearly gates,
And I hope the lord is willing,
To forgive all my mistakes...
I'll miss my friends and family,
But dare not turn around,
As they celebrate the life of me,
Without making a sound...
You see there's something deeper,
So someday they'll understand,
When their Angel becomes keeper,
They will gently take their hand...
And point in a direction,
That they'be never seen before,
Which may seem like reflections,
Looking thru another door...
Immaculate attire,
And the robe that I am in,
Will never cast a shadow,
Since the light comes from within...
Now I'm on the other side,
With angels next to me,
Though my body may have died,
An angel set me free...

A Eternal Friend

I thank the Lord you came my way

I thank Him for each and every day

He sent a special angel to me

In a friend ,who was meant to be,

A friend, for eternity.

Someone to pick you up 

When you stumble and fall

Someone you know you can call

Someone when you are down

Knows just when to come around

I thank the Lord for the angel sent to me

A friend for eternity.

Always,Laura

You tought me is ok to cry when your around,
And held me high ,when my world was falling down,
You hug me tight ,to prove you care,
And in time, you knew my pain,
A silent pain that I have always hide behind my smile,
You read my thoughts ,like a poem,
Every word made your heart pound,
"you are important"... thanks now I have no doubt,
You tought me to face reality ,but never stop dreaming,
I slowly watch as my dreams faded,
I am a college drop out,
You can say on my graduation, i never made it,
But in your words,you made me sound like a hero,
mom was almost dieing,
She had no pills,
I started working trying to pay her medical bills,
I lost more friends than what I have receive,
I am thankful to have you as a friend,
Staying by my side to thick and thin,
You came to my life in the right moment,
Like an angel from heaven,
You fell landing in my heart,
Making the end just the beginning,for me to start,
Hopefully one day I can hold you,as tight like you hold 
conversations,
I love how amazing you are,
Smart ,silly,and kind,
With a beautiful soul,
You guide me with your love ,like the light I see in you,
Best of all,you don't look at me like a joke,
Or the tears of a clown,
Thanks,you thought me is ok to cry,when your around... 
Always Laura :)

Angelic Lullaby

This touch from you 
from beyond the blue 
sings me to sleep every night 

i hear its true 
that what you do 
has earned you that heavenly right 

You touch me here 
softly in my ear 
and I know that you are there 

From beyond the blue 
I long to be with you 
and let you know i care 

Whisper why's 
in sweet lullabies 
and the answer will be yours 

Tender angel in my head 
laying me down in our bed 
from where the angel soars

The Lament For an Angel

All in one faded-black day (but let None forget) In my arms, her body lay (my life was the price to pay) A tragedy, through the lack of humanly shame (do they know pain) My darkly colleen has to suffer no more (Robert nor do you) Let me die (please hear my haunted cries) If I can not see Sophie tonight (live on with my grey) I'm just a mess of despairing words And broken nerves Another mourning, afflicted sight (through decay, love can remain) Solace, sympathy are just more lies She is all I need Until you decide she is just another sadist's toy My Angel, why did you have to fly so far away My Angel, just let one feather stay My Angel has flown away My Angel, why did you have to fly so far away My Angel, just let one feather stay My Angel has flown away (My body is amortal, die I may, Together, our hearts will forever stay)

BABY

written 28th oct 2012

You were never seen by us, that privilege sadly was not for us 
  an extravagance we were overwhelmed by, the thought of your embrace  
The entire twelve weeks you were a joy to have known, even 'without' being seen 
 hearing about you're arrival, was a blessing at the time you were conceived
For life hadn't been easy and we had all asked God, we even plea'd 

We wait upon the day, you will finally meet us 
 having the honour to love and learn with you, saddly not for us
It brakes my heart as you part, you had already embeded love into my heart
 Just knowing we will now...forever be kept apart

God has other plans for your love that's so strong, blessing us from the start
 we continually pray, maybe he'll deside to let you stay around
But the intense pain of tears and loss, are constantly falling all around
 just let it be known, we all desperately wanted you to become part of us
 
We all will love you for eternity, you are now forever one of us,
 although it was only for a very slight second, it was better than never
You are from this day on, embedded into our hearts forever...
   the impact you have left 'unborn young one'' my beloved grandchild....
                                  "Angel" 2012

Goddess

They say the sun shines on the skin of a goddess her hair dark filled with flowers and her skin of silk,
When you see her don't let her go she will treat u like a god and run her silk hands against the ruffness of your skin she will show u the right way to enlightenment her eyes golden brown so deep you can get lost she can see right through you and know the depth of your soul she will speak words so smooth softer then the wind 
Skin so smooth the sun follows her every move.

DISTURBED CREATURE- Am I

A poem wrote by me, based on Person who is a deserving icon but still struggling hard with his career life and addressed as disturbed creature.

DISTURBED CREATURE--> Am I ??       BY Mrs.Madhavi Suyog Pagare

Am I so insane, Am I so mad,
Dramatic mood of mine is so die hard.
Destroyed my peace, Shattering my dreams,
People call me as disturbed creature.
As like mounting the pain, attenuating the drain!!

Digesting my feelings lying inside me,
Strangely nobody cared, call me sick.
Teasing me lavishly and my heart is pricked,
Hurted me like hell when addressed me as stupid.
As like showering rain, missing on the lane!!

Time lapse in journey of life,
Can hamper anybody on its path.
When I see innate reflex of mine,
I always use to brightly shine.
Though possessing every job attributes of mine,
I never thought the authorities will ditch and hamper my career line.
Falsely acting bloody swine, making my image as fade as wine.
As like affecting harmonious divine, my soul was, as is transparently pristine!!

Destroying me and testing my patience, Never wanna give up.
Transformed deviations, wanna rightly screw up.
I wanna raise up, I wanna shake up.
I wanna wake up, Tranquilize my mind.
Unzip the professional life compressed by the culprits.
Wanna explore myself, driving the motivated heights of journey.
Lastly waiting for the optimistic opportunity.
Cuffing the suspect ,I wanna rejoice by my pattern of life!!

Angel

The little girl we love and miss
We know you are happy in Angel bliss
The messages you give to your family down here
Are a comfort for us, to know you are near

Dancing on moonbeams and jumping on stars
That’s the little Angel we imagine you are
We believe what we see and see what we believe
But it’s only when we believe that we can really see

Our spirits love your spirit 
Now and forever

DREAM WORLD

In the dream world where reality becomes a fantasy 
And fantasy becomes reality.

The impossible is made possible and death becomes no threat. Mountains turn to a plain ground and are surmountable.

In the dream world I can do the impossible and see the invincible. I can spread my wings, soar and fly through the clouds reaching the altitude of my fortune and destiny.

In the dream world I am unstoppable and unquestionable, conquering all my adversaries. The treasures of this world are at my disposal, kings and kingdoms are my subjects.

In the dream world wishes don’t count but choices are made. That is why I have made the choice to have you as mine forever. In my dream world where there is no pain but gain, no distress but fortress, no cross but crown.

Return Of Your King

Reflections of imperfections have shown me a way that I can move mountains through my power of faith even though I can't see him I know he is real through the power of prayer and a Love that I feel It's growing inside me like a flower in bloom shall I reveal my powers or is it too soon I am reading the signs through my darkness I find a reason for belief in the light of mankind that I know shall overcome the greatest of odds the Love I seek amazes me especially through the flaws because now I am inspired through the hero's that bring my throne through the darkness on which I return on as your King.

A Homeless Man Named Sam -Part 4

Cont. from Part 3

Three months now, no trace of Sam has ever been found to this very day
 I think he was an angel from above, I don’t know what else to say
 I hope he’s at home in Heaven with God and his beautiful wife
 I believe he was sent to teach me a lesson and to share with me his life
  
If you see someone in need don’t just walk on by, please don’t treat them so unfair
 When you pass them- stop - give them a smile, send them a heartfelt prayer
 Try to help someone else, the best that you possibly can
 Always try to remember... this isn't where their homeless life began
_______________________________________________________________
 
I felt very privileged to have met this kind man
 But so saddened by his heartfelt story
 Was he an angel sent from God?
 I don't know, I only know I met a very, special man...
     a man named Sam
 
___________________________________________________
                                    ***Dedicated to Sam***

Butterfly

I once was like a catipiller young,naive,and new
Always living from my heart not knowing what
else to do.Easy to take advantage of, that is 
just the case, people would walk over me
like I was their dirty used up suitcase.
Now I feel a newness coming, like a light
shining from the sky, colors fill my world
and I know I am blooming into a butterfly.
Purple,Pink, Blue and Green I can feel them
flowing through. Colors of the rainbow raising
me into full bloom. Wise and strong I am becoming
My faith leads me where I need to go giving me
insight and wiseness for only me to know.
I have not  done this on my own you see
I have been guided by God and Angels
on this Earth. Wise words the wisdom at
it's best comes from a wise lady who
seems to know me best. Lucky, I am 
to have her in my life, she always shoots
it straight and tells me like it is, knowing
her words touch my heart and gives me tons of faith..
I feel like flying through the sky or climbing 
a tree way up high. I feel like observing the 
world just like a brand new butterfly so as I
Bloom I become Anew something unlike the past
Smart and wise beautiful on the inside and outside 
 a touch of color here a touch of color there
makes me glow and become a beautiful blooming butterfly...

life

Life is worth it
When I live for you
It’s how I know that this is love proven true
But there you fly now in the sky
Showing me that differences and flaws
Is coexistence in each other
Celebrate them don’t use them as a weakness
Because in doing that you show weakness in yourself
Show some respect to them 
For they are to be cared for 
Then why is it no one ever does
Do they not see the pain? 
With every dying cuss 
So let the pain engulf me 
Teach my eyes to see
Let a fallen angel come to curse me
Let my cuts come to bleed 
Evil engulfing my broken heart yet falling deep in love 
When everything turns to turmoil 
I turn to my angel from above 
Let my heart come to boil
In the ashes of my innocence 
Letting myself go until I fully reach out to fellow brethren s 
Praying with no feeling I can feel myself slip away
I’m falling yet falling apart 
 Without the slightest of delays 
Birth was a mistake and yet I cannot come to die
Was it true that I am meant to live?  
A man who only knows to cry 
I cannot give
The light has forsaken my cold and darkened heart
For who am I to live 
Cold and fruitless moon why have you forsaken me
Does it bring you joy to see that you are breaking me
Listen to the cold and broken winds 
Nothing can ever beat it
Nor can I defend

Beside me

The night of the fallen,the fall in the deep
I wake up exploring my thoughts in my sleep
I shake up believing it all was a game
Taking me under an ocean of rain

You stand there beside me to ease up the pain
Without you it's all just adventure to gain
A proud face- the star leading me on my path
Shining, to give me the strength of your light

In order are finally all priorities set
Happiness, joy from the world to get
Go, fight, become whoever you want,
Your dreams are all yet to be found...

Push Up

i could sit here. day in and day out
thinking of the most proper way
to let the ink in the pen spill out
but as of late im feeling prehistoric 
so much weight on my shoulders 
and i dont know where to go
resuscitate my soul
look back up and head to the goal

so much evil around. i feel like the devils workin double shifts just to bring me down.
on the road to redemption
you can take a seat up in the front section
just so you can feel the emotions
in this electric notion

i've done a lot of things that hide the halo
let it all collaborate when i medicate 
now look at me, mind workin like plato
formulate a new path to take so i can
maneuver through all the mistakes 
we all know we cant change what we've already made
but we can change the next thing we create
startin to sound like a serenity prayer
5 steps till im thirty
and the twenty four before i was never a player
found out when the lights came back on im strictly a lover
its the strongest drink for your soul, when its thirsty
so careful how much you intake or be left hungover
even worse be the one she ran over

i dont mean to come off like im too deep
but the obstacles made there way through just to scrape through
and leave me suffocating
just for me to re-invent a new way to breathe, re-decorating

is your life so complicated 
you rather wet up your pillows and revoke from the life you live
just think of your kids mourning 
theyll never see that pretty face in the morning any more
cheer your self up
you got a lot to live for
your a gem and im that friend
trynna appraise the value 
that you dont see inside of you


just another day for him
goin about
searchin wonderin what his purpose is
running in circles 
till he found a way through all the turbulence

So It Was

So it was that the night transcended peacefully over my head
Taking me through thick clouds,landing me upon parched land
Spilling  tranquil moments into daylight complexity.
So it was that I found myself among a crowd of unfamiliar people
People who I have perhaps seen in the city or on TV 
So it was that an influential woman hosted a dinner in a sizable hall in town
A gloomy  dinner with little food just to wet the appetite of the starving crowd.
So it was  that  the courageously dressed host gave a short speech to amuse the
hungry lot, while her husband stood silently summarizing the plot.

So it was that she gave a short speech when everyone was expecting her to preach but the starved guests devoured the tiny portion and scrambled through the door. Hundreds of them instantly streamed through the hallway leaving the host to deeply ponder.So it was that the host came running to me pouring out her heartfelt misery."The people did not interacted",  she said, "they just swallowed the food and fled". I told her not to worry they came for dinner because they were hungry.

The night still had me bounded taking me from town to town,
Propelling me into another space, showing me Saudi riyals all over the place.
So it was that I entered this remarkable place and an official man came through a little gate. He handed me a stash of Saudi rial, piled up with one hundred notes with three one riyal notes to keep afloat.I separated the 100 notes from the one riyal notes and muse deeply over such astounding happenings hoping to find some plausible answers. So it was that as I stood there, the woman and her husband that hosted the dinner appeared.The authoritative man  tenderly placed some riyal in their empty hands.The husband seemed very pleased but his wife was intensely displeased. And so it was that she walked away and uttered these words in dismay,"I will see to It".

The nights mystery kept me drifting and  wandering all over the city
forcing me to submit to its rigorous rules.With nothing to say I drift with the night all the way. So it was that I ended up in a beautiful church in the center of town and walked silently in the church hoping to get some encouraging words.But the entire right section of the pews was blocked off and covered with a tall screen from the back leaving  just the front row vacant.Whats the meaning in all of this I tried so hard to understand but nothing seemed to fit.

Three women dressed in white sat composedly towards the back on the left side of the pews.Two of them sat on the very last rows while the other sat further up leaning her back against the corner  praying. And so it was that I walked through the pews praying a powerful prayer. I held the hands of the women sitting in the back rows and prayed ''Luke 12: 22-30 from the scriptures with them.

 "Then He said to His disciples,Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? 25 And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? “And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind.For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you."

So it was that I walked up to the third woman and prayed with her when suddenly the man and woman that was hosting the dinner walked towards the right of the church straight up to the front row.And so it was that as I walked towards them to pray, the night grabbed me vigorously and tossed me back into my bed. I woke up at three fifty eight am at the crack of dawn and mulled over the strange nights adventure.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ©2014 Christine Phillips

An Ode to LIFE Part 1

An Ode To LIFE


As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.

God Almighty

When I came to you I was broken and frail~Half my mind gone in despair

 Feeling so Low~Like mud on the ground~Wondering if my Joy would ever

 be found~Fighting and resisting at the very Start~then slowly you entered my heart

 Quietly and gently working insid my soul knowing just what you were doing to help me glow

You broke into my soul where I had been suffering the most you cleansed me

and entered me showing me what I needed to see, working endlessley on my soul

you cleansed me and made me once again whole. God almighty you never cease to

amaze me always by my side even when I'm at my worst, loving me endleslly and uncondionally..

You have opened my heart to the beauty again, the beauty of the clouds the beauty of your creations'

The beauty of the rain, the beauty of the thunder, the beauty most of all of your people.

Opened and vunerable I am to you always. Enter me and have me do your will in my life

help me to always follow you in every aspect of my mind, body, and soul with every ounce of me

Silently by my side help guide me in my ways so I do your ways and your will dear god almighty

Walking together down this journey in life nothing can go wrong with you by my side

Hold me and love me in this I pray guide me down the right roads along my way

I want you by my side for the rest of my life, no more going alone on this journey

I need you Lord God ALmighty to guide me ,Love me. and Hold me through my good and bad times..!

Angel on my Shoulder

Angels on my right shoulder
Battling devils on the left
Ever guiding my actions
Saving my soul from bereft

Angels e'er amongst us
Like Clarence on Stewart's bridge
Softly urge us to avoid
Falling from grace at the ridge

My special angel's sweet voice
Sounds so much like my mother's
But you have an angel too
Who's unlike any other's

Spirits of loved ones who've passed
Want us to know heaven's joy
So we reunite with them
And eternal bliss enjoy

So, Mom, if you're listening
Your voice overtakes evil
Helping me find the right path
You've mastered soul retrieval 

A wonderful life bestowed
By a righteous urging
From an angel observer
For spiritual merging

The Magik Of Love

Reflections in the mirror were getting scary I could not carry the weight of my pain it almost took my life to learn to love again for I have made a friend somewhere along my long lost way I hope that I helped him just a fraction of how he helped me maybe that single thought is what finally gave me my peace enough to release so much stolen energy Now I am not afraid to walk where the streets are hot for I thrive in Hell's kitchen where the devil stirs my pot for I now have him quiet tame I sacrificed my dragons at the alter of my name and now you are my slaves any time I need I'll call upon my superhero's to come and rescue me like my Saint Toni who swept me off that bridge and showed my how a death can be the greatest reason to live for she was the seed to grow my Eden then a man from a foreign land gave me something in myself to believe in the magik of Love.

Go in Your Power

This is the story of Gideon as found in the book of Judges. Not a great warrior, not a great 
leader, not someone with means. God picked someone no one else would have, and Gideon 
responded. One of my favorite stories, 1) because of the way the Angel addressed Gideon, 
2) because of the way Gideon responded (if God is with us, what good is it?) and 3) the way 
God didn't answer him at all.


Their country had suffered for so very long. 
An enemy army stood one million strong. 
They came every year. There were no reprieves 
from cave dwelling drifters, gypsies, and thieves. 

They traversed the desert like pirates on sand. 
When harvest would come, they’d ravage the land. 
Like spiders in a web devouring their prey, 
consuming whatever would stand in their way. 

Death and destruction would litter their wake, 
but that wasn’t all they had managed to break. 
The hopes of a nation, extinguished by fears. 
Autumn was coming, the battleground nears. 

Gideon was part of the lower class tribes, 
and least among them as the Bible describes. 
He did his own thing and no one could see, 
the champion inside him that one day would be.

Then an Angel appeared from out of the blue, 
saying, “Hail man of valor. God is with you!” 
Gideon looked around as if he’d not heard. 
“What did you say? That’s completely absurd. 

If God were with us…” Gideon extolled, 
“Then why must we suffer? I have to be told. 
Why are we tortured with death and disease? 
Answer me that and I’ll bow to my knees.” 

The Angel responded ignoring his plea. 
“You have the power to go set them free!” 
For, God won’t respond to complaints about “Why?” 
His answer? Go change it, demanding we try. 

“But, I’m just a poor shepherd? What could I do?” 
The Angel said, “God sees a warrior in you.” 
So, Gideon accepted God’s challenge to fight. 
People would follow as he stood for what’s right.

He placed a few men in the enemy’s way. 
He fooled the great army into running away. 
Oppression defeated without raising a sword. 
A victory of faith, a blessing from the Lord. 

Hunger? Go feed them! Sick? Find the cure! 
God gave us the ability to make it occur. 
No matter what troubles we find ourselves in, 
like Gideon, God gives us the courage to win. 

When the challenge of life has filled up your cup, 
listen for Angels to shout out, “Rise up!” 
You are the one who can open closed doors. 
Now Go, … save your country! The power is yours!

I

If its money I got its money ill keep. If its money I have its money ill weep. If its love that I give its love ill receive. For I am but no one who just see's beneath. Some say your only as strong as you feel, but how could we change..in a place that's so unreal. People are hearing but..not really hearing. Why is the world so blind. I keep on screaming and screaming and screaming for things to be revolutionized. I am just a small song in a world full of cries, laughter, tears and french-fries.

Sonnet of a Lover and Sinner

What a grave sin, what abomination—a lover
Loving a man of his choice, astray, following heart’s desire.
Pray tell, whom have I wronged and what prayer
Is there to purge this unholy burning fire?

The Most Merciful and Forgiving
Truly You are. But for all I know, no devil
Writes such sweet songs, so divine and of love, to sing
And no virtuous prophet, untouched by Gabriel,

Could fully decipher what Your will is.
So let me believe this love is pure
To the day when Israfel fulfils his
Heavenly duty. And all will see for sure:

Us, entering Your radiant celestial garden;
For even Azrael understands love is God-given.

Son of the Morning

Once, he had the most brilliant light
In Heaven, he'd been the star even at night
The most favored, the most beautiful
He never thought one day he'd become a fool

He was always pure, never felt insecure
Until Heaven borne one special creature
And the angels cried, the angels wondered
What would happen if they are no longer favored?

Angels watched as Heaven gave the man a special woman
My beloved one walked away, flame in his hand
Why the special gift for a man made in soil?
That was when anger and envy started to boil

The most beautiful star sat alone in silence
Heaven's in peace, can he dare start a violence?
Yes, he would for the love of Heaven
So he called all his beloved brethren

War would never do good for anyone
He knew from the sight of blood in his hands
And stared at the ground where his brethren laid
From the bloody battle, my beloved angel turned away

His wings unfurled, made of pure Heaven and glory
They were as black as night, magnificent and lovely
He made once last glance as he begun to descend
He knew he made a mistake he could never amend

It was his nature, no other pleasure than flying
But his heart broke knowing that he's falling
He landed to the ground, broken and wounded
Tears from his eyes, he felt ashamed and abandoned

He stood alone in the middle of the night
His wings dimmed, slowly fading its light
For the first time, he felt the rain on his skin
And for the first time, he shivered from the coldness of the wind

He looked up and saw his brethren
Why did they follow him, he's a Fallen
They bowed their heads, still loving him
So he decided, He's Lucifer and no longer the Son of the Morning

THE ANGEL OF INNOCENCE

Kneeling before his holy throne, blessed is she this angel of innocence,
In clarity’s eyes of divine faith, the child of God smiles with devotions
Purity.
With the fullest of hearts love, she sings as soft as the morning dove,
Praising the lords name on the heights divide, amongst the stars,
And light of the first mornings rays, which touch the vast
Everlasting skies of heaven.
Perfections wings to flight, she soars lifted upon spiritual currents
Of prayer and merciful grace.
Extended white feathers of ivory silk are softly kissed by,
 The heavenly fathers spirit, for she is child of light itself
Warmed beneath the glow of the divine shinning of God.
Himself.
Spiritualism gift lives within this angel of mercy, whom
Stands on the righteous side of the Almighty’s right hand,
A blessings promise of the dawning soon to come, of an age
Of enlightenment for mankind.
Oh greatest beauty is glory’s kindred, setting free the
Miracle from the vaults of heaven, a white dove of peace,
Shinning amongst the blackened night vial, exposing the
Diamond stars of the universe, which blinks in wonders 
Amazement at the Lords treasured angel of innocence.
Sing does the Lords heavenly chorus in melodies
Harmony unto the graceful figure of humility for
She is innocence personification of perfection gift
Of love from the power on the most high.
Praising his name, with both hands locked together in
Prayer and faith beyond mortal’s comprehension.
In the light aglow of the everlasting, she does soar,
Waiting for the beckoning voice that calls to her
Inner soul, come my dearest child of innocence
It is time for you to come home, and be embraced
Beneath my wings of divine grace, until the world
Of man is ready for thee.
At the night so fades this angel of the mericiful heeds
The Lords calling, and rests until the eve of her 
Great awakening, then shall mankind open their blind
Eyes at last to behold and know the Lord’s love,
As the angel of innocence soars once more
Amongst the divine stars unto freedom’s passage.
Smiling in faith’s ultimate state of grace.

An Angel In Waiting

:      As she sang her song she looked all around
         Angels in Heaven did she surround
     They flew in and out, through Heaven's doors
         They were busy doing, Gods daily Chores'.
      She wanted to be an Angel, an Angel with wings
         She wanted to do all of God's daily things
     "I want my wings now" she said, with a sigh
        " I have waited and waited, I want to fly"
     The Angel with blonde hair was sitting nearby
        "You have to walk darling, before you can fly.
      Wings, my Dear you have to earn.    
         There is so much more, you have yet to learn.
     Up here in heaven we take our time.
         Slowly and surely we make the climb.
     You have forever to get your wings,
         For now, my dear, we need you to sing.
     Your sweet voice is what is needed to greet
         The new souls that are entering Heavens' Retreat.
     At first they are lost until they find their way
         That's why we need you here, singing everyday.
      Your sweet voice tells them they are here with God.
        Its makes them feel welcome and safe inside. 
      So see, My Dear, you are needed right here
          To welcome them all, with your good smiling cheer".:

A healthy Kenyan Ego Poem

A huge ego breaks off love’s embrace,
A tiny ego slips off love’s embrace,
No ego, no embrace of love!

A selfless ego suffocates from love’s embrace,
A selfish ego wards off love’s embrace,
No ego, no embrace of love!

A super-visual ego overshadows love’s embrace,
A deep-seated ego is colonized by love’s embrace,
No ego, no embrace of love!

A healthy ego humbly looks above,
A healthy ego can lead and also serve...

Its nerves know not pressured blood,
But developing it is almost hard!

Why am I here

Why am I here?
I often wonder why I was born. I know of no purpose for me! I call myself an earth angel but truth be told, I’m just a lost soul.
My life filled with uncertainty and fear, never finding a place of comfort and reassurance! Why was I put here for such a life filled with loss and sadness? To spend life lonely seems’ an eternity.
Happiness escapes me, however; at moment’s it feels close. Life closes in snatching the glimpse away as if a cruel joke was just played! I wonder why not me?
I am afraid to live and I am afraid to die! Life has been unkind to me, showing no mercy. How long I have to endure this, I wonder to myself. Then what will death bring to me?
 In time death will bring the unknown. Maybe I’ll be an angel dwelling in heaven. Faith filling my heart and love flowing through my veins surely will lead to a peaceful dwelling place! 
My heart and soul continues to give kindness and direction. Love flows to all those in need filling a void where ever I can. Life and death are of the same sensations filling the air. To know one is to know the other. 
Life is bitter sweet and death is too. Having lived life now I wonder at death. We asked not to be born and we ask not to die! Having both thrust upon us brings life full circle for what reason, I do not know. Yet here I am!

A Homeless Man Named Sam- Part 3

He’d had a hard life, with lots of worries and many medical bills to pay
 It all started he said, when his wife became ill, on that sad, spring day in May
 He tried to keep it all together for her, so she wouldn’t have to worry 
She was so sick and frail, then her mind slowly became very blurry
 She hung on for her life, but over time her memory slowly began to fade away
 “It was such a long hard time”, he said, “Then an Angel took her home on a warm July day”
 
My heart was breaking as I pensively sat, listening to him quietly talk
 With tears in our eyes, we sat together, then I asked if we could go for a walk
 “People always pass me by,” he said, “As if I’m not even standing there”
 “You’re the only one,” said he, “Who’s taken the time to even show you care”
 “I don’t want their sorrow or pity”, he said, “Just some friendly care and love”!
 “I lost my wife and my life, when an Angel took her from above”
 “Never a tear in their eyes, or a friendly smile, never offering to lend a hand”
 “What if I was an angel?” he said, “Sent from God and no one lent me their hand”?
 
After we left that cafe on that hot day in September 
I found a tiny emblem of an angel in my jacket pocket Something he must have left for me in order to remember 

Let this be a real good lesson to all of us, as a test of our brotherly love
 You never know if that homeless beggar is an angel sent from above
 I always think this to myself whenever I see a person in need
 “Are they an angel unaware looking to me for a helpful deed”?
 
Stop and listen to the call you hear, the one your heart’s been given
 Help those you see, take up their cross help them while you’re still living
 Whenever passing by someone you see in need, try to let go of your greed
 Stop and heed your heart, give them a hand and do them a helpful deed.
 
 It’s been three weeks now, since I’ve seen Sam standing on that street
 I've been so worried I stopped and asked many others that I meet
 “Has anyone seen that man named Sam, who stands alone on this corner”?
 When no one seemed to know, I asked my friend, that small café owner
 
He told me that he’d seen Sam just the other day
 “It seemed odd”, he said, “But he never even looked my way”
 A couple days later, I happened to read a short story in our local news
 It told of a homeless man named Sam, where they’d found only his clothes and shoes

The Silent Lamb

The silent bell rings in the night,
Calling the devils to kneel to the light,
What once was, becomes no more,
As the light breaks through the open door.

What you think and what you feel,
What you saw and thought was real,
Is now only dust on the road,
The desolate remains of your ancient abode.

The new light is rising on the hill,
The new song is singing down in the well,
The new souls are dreaming of your face,
The new hearts are beating at you pace.

The old ideas and reasons you gave,
Are buried in the tomb and in the grave,
The rotting bone and flesh are gone,
In the morning dew, in the morning sun.

The light shines through the open door,
Casts no shadow on the old dirty floor,
The ancient laws of reason and might,
Crumble to dust in the morning light.

What once was real and certain as rock,
Is now the dream the baby forgot,
The new light coming to wake you my love,
The silent lamb and the flying dove.

THE END GAME THE END




         **********Note: The Game is over********



The second batter put th ball
             Over the fence
No one knew where it went
It screamed and it screeched the sky
And burdened it's silence with light
        --------
Their was an Angel in deep middle field
It was also an Angel of the LORD
He really fielded it hard....
      ------
He swept so high
That he breech the sky
He braved the breath of
Death and Eternity
But, He make it back eventually
      ------
He cast that ball in the name
              Of the Lord
But, He didn't cast that hard
And as it turned out
The game was won
In the name of the Father
And the Holy Son
And this is how we have
To end this pun!

Why Should I

Was it enough or was it too much?
Sometimes too fast but always too slow!
God knows that I come with these seeds that grow.
Inside and out I absorb every single touch,
But why should I?
Why should I be the only one that knows?
Stepping through time and sliding back so smooth so I go!
I say I can qualify!
Where was I and why was I there?
Sometimes too obvious but always with doubt!
God knows that I come riding in on a prayer.
I absorb every single touch inside and out,
But why should I? 
Why should I be the only one that cares?
Climbing the highest mountains and sliding down so steep but on a dare!
I say I can magnify!

What did I say and what did I do?
Sometimes too quite but always too loud!
God knows that I come with a gleam that shines so proud.
Inside and out I absorb every single touch by you.
But why should I? 
Why should I be the only one in the crowd?
Walking on water and walking backwards but at least I know how.
I say I can intensify!
Do I want to or do you need me to?
Sometimes I wonder and sometimes I simply don’t care.
God knows that I come standing on a higher sky of blue.
I absorb every single touch by you inside and out with this glare.
But why should I?
Why should I be the only one with this view?
Up in the clouds and aimless but always led by you!
I say, “I SANCTIFY”!

My Guardian Dear

When I was young I thought I knew 
How to talk and speak with you 
But time has put a wedge between
My angel, conscience, inner being.
I spoke to you , I spoke to you

The one who told me right from wrong,
Comforted me all day long. 
Helped me choose which way to go,
When undecided, I didn't know.
I spoke to you. I spoke to you.

Some call you Gabriel, 
My Guardian Angel, I did tell,
My hopes,my fears,my dreams to be,
Untold to others was free with thee.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Comfortable, believing that you were there,
To guide me through every prayer.
You had a name I knew it then,
I said it time and time again.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you 

I was a child of seven or eight,
I knew when called I need not wait
For you my angel to appear 
To clear my conscience and my fear
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

The older I grew, less time was spent
Talking to you,trying to vent
Friends became closer to me,
I shared more with them and left you be
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Now as I'm in the prime of life
Mother to my son, no longer a wife,
I wonder late at night if you
Will answer my questions like you used to do
I spoke to you, I spoke to you

Afraid to test, afraid to fail,
Wanting and hoping you did not bail 
Praying that your still at my side
To light, to guard,to rule and guide. 
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My faith has told me you are here.
Watching me and always near.
My pride, my walls have come down
Last night,I spoke with no one around.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My Guardian Angel you were there
You listened and helped with every prayer,
My hopeless feelings lonely, just me
Ended last night when you returned to me
I spoke to you, I spoke to you
I"ll speak to you, yes speak with you.

An angel came

An angel came!

Nights in black and white,
My mind keeps drifting from side to side.

Wondering in my mind about the voice I heard,
At my bedside an angel came.

"Be patient," The voice said;
I heard it so clear, yet so discreet.

To hear a strange voice whisper into my ear,
It made me scared, and it made me fear.

Fear from God who heard my cry,
Begging for mercy, to save a child.

Praying to all angels to keep her safe
The mother of my children, my soul mate.

This is a sign for me to know,
That God is with me, and I am not alone.

Thank you God for this sign you gave me,
To remind me that there is a God up there
and to be patient.
 
I’ll keep my faith every time I'm down,
With my forehead touching the ground.

Fallen Angel

You see her,
but don't know it.
She's lying on the floor,
scars on her feet, 
her knees,
her hands.
Her eyes plead for acceptance,
that you disregard her tattered wings.
Too weak to stand up,
too tired to breathe,
the fall from heaven to earth,
sank her soul to the depths of this world.

This fallen angel sees deep in your mind,
right through your eyes,
she knows what you think you see,
and wishes you were blind.
Her hands rise in shame,
covering her bruised face;
they show more scars and blood,
which she just can't seem to hide.

Fallen angel from above,
wanting just to find love,
she's searching for something more,
to accept her broken wings.
Watch for the fallen angel;
show her what she thinks she can't have.
Teach her that bruises, 
blood,
scars,
can be accepted unconditionally.

Love the fallen angel,
so she may become whole,
then one day this sweet angel,
might find her place in the heavens again.

Close your eyes and dream with me

Close your eyes and dream with me

the way things are suppose to be

the Love inside will set us free.


Close your eyes and dream with me

the way things are suppose to be

the burdens we carry lets share today

Lets do things in our Lords way.


Close your eyes and dream with me

lets walk in the way He made us to be.



Close your eyes and hear His voice

things are crazy in this world of pain

close your eyes and let Him lead

also help me see His truth in me.



My life bounces back and forth

close your eyes and dream with me

on how things are suppose to be.



Help us Lord to live free

in your way,please reveal

Your heart to me.



Close your eyes and dream with me

Take my hand and walk with me

to the ends of the earth

show our true worth

His love in us,

this is the way its suppose to be.



Close your eyes and dream with me.

I am being called home as my work is done here
I hear my Lords voice calling me home
Although I know I will miss this old world

All the People I have met and talked to
My body can go on no more for it has reached it’s time

when you are here with me.

Many Questions, One Answer

The bills, the pain, the drama, the rain
The storm grows larger and floods your brain 
With thoughts that begin to drive you insane
 Like, if I trust God will it all go away?
What am I missing? Empathy? Faith?
What will happen if I stay on this pace?
Am I one of those people that God can replace?
If I don’t change now is it hell I face?
Could we all be afraid of meeting our fate?
All these years trying to find someone to relate..
Is it true you can fall victim of a time and a place?
If I pray hard enough can I erase [pause]
The anger, the envy, resentment and hate ?
or at 25 years old could I be too late?
To try and change my life to get a new slate
And chills cover my arms and my heart begins to race
All of a sudden I can’t hear any rain
Laughter replaces the fear that remained 
and God lets us know it will all be ok
Forgive those around you and thank God for each day
Think with your heart and in Gods you will stay.

The Angel I Knew

The Angel I Knew


Skin so fair like snow as no comparison
With hair so wild and eyes which shows,
somewhat sad and yet fear-ish glow. 
How long do you plan to keep me
by your side?
Under you spell by sound of voice,I fall 
to my knees for you.Batter,broken and scared
Yet even betrayed I'll stay by your side loyal
and proud foremost happy. As I stand by your
Side I look into your eyes.
The turning leaves rain upon your head.
The worse be I captivated by you.With your 
Snowy white skin
Wild hair and twilighted eyes
You spread your angelica wings,you took off leaving me
But with beautiful memories,So that I never forget
Well see each other again.
But for now 
Your The Angel I once Knew

Your Only Friend

     YOUR ONLY FRIEND       
Out of the night she's called for you
and raised you from a restless sleep
into the life you're going through,
into the life you can not keep.

She's known by all, her name is Death,
you see her, then you realize,
she is your very final breath
and you have seen it in her eyes.

You look again, to clear your head
but truth is truth, and now you know,
your book is finished, it is read,
and now it's time to go.

So long you wondered who she was
if she would ever be a friend,
but now you see the love she does,
and it is there beyond your end.

She whispers all the things you've done
and sings them in her song
each rising star, each setting sun,
it all played out, but played out wrong.

And there is nothing here for you,
so welcome her, she is your end,
and go to where you must go to
to know sweet Death, your only friend.

The Settlement of the Four Ligures

The stones slipped through the great fingertips of God
Each ligure staked its existence on the four corners of the universe
The quadrivial region began to spin and pull into a sphere
And pathways revealed their footholds 

The fourth ligure bravely landed in the midst of history
So that one day the future settlement of the second 
Would be moved by the last—by the past
Suffering much it stayed
Manifesting in incandescent words
Thrusting evanescence upon the weak
Selfless, it's sorrow would move the merriest
Would move the unmovable

The third lies in the profound valley of mystical guardians
Star-recruited, they are the very light above the canvas of gray
They embrace the stone—are inspired by the stone  
The very reflection of their creator was evident
Upon their unremitting glimmers
Unafraid to stare the others down
Motivated and construed by the glower of death
Eyes move fixedly beyond the simple vast

The second ligure rested upon the shoulders of invisible martyrs 
The hopeful power it planted on the sufferers was unbelievable
For spectators used their disbelief to cover their ever-placed envy
They never were part of the battle—they merely watched
Always seeing truth
But they never quite absorbed
Like a rock hitting the water
The inevitable fate was to fly and sink

The first of the ligures settled in the very reservoir of Satan himself
Even the very heart of the devil is marked
Though rebellion embarked  
The cold stone landed upon his naked bosom
He despaired not to the pericopal truth the gods had bestowed upon him
He merely despised it
But wished not to lose it
For such a stone to fall upon that dark corner—he felt pride for the gracious wound

In truth, there are twelve ligures of stone 
And four were dispersed, dropped into the universe
The last eight the great Eternal wears upon his breastplate 
And only He can re-move these ligures

In my weakness, I do not falter domestically.
In my strength, I am subservient.
I will make a difference through my duties and tasks.
As a soul, I owe the Lord all Almighty that.
My essence is my spirit and wit.

Angel Dust

‘Purer than the Driven Snow’, has echoed throughout the years.
Why? You might ask… is it thought to be so…so very dear?
It fascinates and boggles the mind, in so many interesting ways.

The white it shows, is truly the purest white, we will ever know.
Intricate shapes are beyond belief, never one the same, to show.
Millions do fall in a single storm, that’s a miracle, too, I say.

It can blanket and protect the ground from a day’s deep, hovering cold.
It holds our minds in awe, so very white, reflecting its’ light into our soul.
It sparkles in the deep moonlight, inspiring us to our knees, to joyfully pray.

And where does it come, but from the heavens above, on a very cloudy day.
A playgrounds dream, where imagination sings, and sends us, to its’ display. 
Where snow angels are made, on a winter’s day… in such a touchable way.

 This I do call… Angel Dust… God’s Gift… for us.

Shimmering Darkness

She woke up everyday 
to the beckoning of death's toll. 
But decided to embrace life, 
pulling herself from the darkened hole. 

With a new brightness in her eyes, 
she lived life as partially buried gold. 
Never afraid of the darkness, 
or what the future may hold. 

Shimmering beneath the dirt, 
her beauty shall now unfold. 
True legacy lies hidden to reign, 
for a prodigy has risen from bitter cold. 

One example of grace goes far, 
farther then any story ever told. 
With strength that comes from deep within, 
that's been held from days of old. 

Among the majority she lived, 
witnessing atrocities flare. 
From her soul she would always give, 
though no one seemed to care. 

As the bells of sadness began to ring, 
she would rise above the gloom. 
Out of darkness and despair she would sing, 
with a melody that filled the room. 

The tears that had fallen proved as strength, 
to her ever-impending light. 
Onward traveling to any length, 
for what she believed was right. 

When darkened paths shimmer, 
despite the pangs of apathy, 
through life she will always glimmer, 
no matter what the tragedy.

All of ma life I was dying for a touch like yours.

Then u made that a reality,

U held me in ya arms,

As warm as ya touch,

ya arms were.

U Gave me a sweet tender kiss,

These made me feel at home.

 Because home is where the heart is.

Now this is where I wan spend the rest of ma days.

I don't wanna loose ya touch again.

I will hold u so dearly

And love u with all my might

Because with u I can finally b myself again

 

It feels like the doves have been set free,

So they can fly in the sky nd sing sweet melodies.

But the baby dove will come back,

For it knows that this is home,

Where it belongs

Like the morning breeze,

 which opens up the flower's petals

As they release the sweet scent of freedom nd love.

I will be there to grab the love nd freedom brought back by the baby dove,

Nd we will live by that for the rest of our days,

I will take ya hand nd keep u warm al night,

and when eva u need me,

all u have to do is call ma name,

nd I will b there to do that u desire.

For I know u are my empire,

Nd it will put a smile on ya cute face,

A smile always accompanied with warmth, truth and love,

I will always be there

To shower ya with love.

 

If m nt there to answer,

Do not cry for me,

For the Mississippi is already overflowing with water,

Ya tears will make it worse.

Be hopeful for my return,

For I will always b back for u,

Cos I will never abandon u,

I will forever b wit u

As

I have always wished and desired .

Being with u is a dream come true,

I will give ma all for u to be happy,

because happiness is all I want and desire for you....

The Mirror of Abaddon

Fourteen-thousand years ago, a devil played a game
In his garden with an angel whom I shall not name.
The angel won or so he thought, “Now you must pay what’s due”
I’ll take your mirr’, your favorite one,  and break the thing in two.

The mirror was a magic one of evil dark and black
“The beauty of a perfect world, now what’s the fun in that?
This one’s far better, it twist, it pulls it shrinks before my eyes.
Instead of showing true reflections, this one shows me lies”

“I’ll tell you what, you won it fair, it’s yours but let’s do more;
I’ll help you break it here and now and it will be no more.”
The angel smashed it into two, his hammer in his hand.
“But why stop there?”, the devil said and smashed it into sand

The Devil grinned, “Good work my friend. See, I don’t even care”
He scooped a handful of the dust and blew it in the air.
Among the people of the earth, the grains of mirror blew.
The angel warned them “Close your eyes!” and blew his trumpet too

“What gift is this?” some people thought, Eve’s lesson was not learned.
and soon awoke with crusty eyes that itched and teared and burned.
“I see it now!” the faithless said “I am no longer blind!”
“Don’t be cross” the devil said, "Their eyes see now like mine".

Some were seized with a panicked fear, “The enemy is nigh!”, 
and with cruel rocks marched on their neighbors and sentenced them to die.
Others were charmed by shiny stones “Supplies are running out!”
The simple gifts that God had given were left to lay about.

Some saw themselves with grandeur high “I’ll wear this mighty crown”, 
I’ll be the King, you be the serf, and bow when I’m around.
The other ones yoked to the plow, “These types aren’t men at all”.
I’ll tolerate your presence if you're at my beck-and -call.

Of arrogance and fear and greed the mighty nations grew.
And men would starve and wars would rage for these unfaithful few.
So hear me now you righteous ones whom the devils would refuse:
In the game of life Good always wins, but bad will never lose.

You can feel the pulsating motions.
You can smell the angelic presence.
You can visualize it,it is like a dream.
Lucid,silky serene images now surround you.
A feeling of ecstasy!
No,something better...
...it is the dance of the angels.

Affliction

The darkness of light impossible to see the pain and the lies always damaging you reach and get burned not understanding this is my disease nature of the beast Suddenly my light is taken away my darkness was revealed taking me as slave when all I ever wanted was for someone to say please stop, for me or enter an early grave Now face to face with all of my demons how can I fight them if I don't want to beat them until the reason arrives, then I shine a little at first but that small thing, is mine The den of ten thieves come up with a plan a whole set of new lies that every single man cannot resist believing it's seeming to be that a horrific ending is just what I need Then all of the sudden my small shine swallows time and with that virtue my face comes to life I would never hurt you please, know this to be yet no one believes me this curse grows like a tree I hate my helpless fate why can't I make a new life for me that no one can take why can't I escape a prison not for me for years I accept this tired sense of defeat The small shine barely intact, inside until Saint Anger starts to burn me, alive I find I'm set off by my wrong, senseless self until I am talking to no one, in Hell So I pick up my pen power to create a new world for me where I design my escape in my invisible state the Devil don't notice that one of his children is no longer hopeless I stop all my madness by power of pen for years my sword drew nothing but sin the yin and the yang both helped me to find that I'm no longer afflicted when darkness lights my bright shine.

An Angel

An angel did befriend us, on earth, before one Christmas day.
Some say she was a comet, some say she was a star.
I say she was a gift from God, here to light our way.
She was a thing of beauty that shone across the land.
Leading to a humble manger, found in Bethlehem.

And what could be so important, for her to come our way?
A savior to our lands, and yes, our hearts and souls…
Triumphantly born on Christmas Day.
That day he was born the heavens truly did rejoice.
And she, a glorious light, continued to beacon forth God’s love.

Such an important part, that angel was given on that day.
She was a beacon to our hearts and the gifts of love… 
Guiding the Wise Men and shepherds endlessly along their way.
Thru her we learned lessons, such as: patience, hope, and how to give…
And yes, she led us to the Wondrous Man, who taught us how to live…

A Homecoming


I have spent many hours reflecting on my dad's last earthly days. How he stared silently at the room's far corner, in another place. At times, many visitors filled his crowded hospital room. But my father's eyes were transfixed, his face peacefully consumed. Though he could not speak, I questioned his mesmerizing vision. As I held his hand I knew the answer, God had made His decision. Angels had come for my dad as he quietly faded in that bed. His time of peace had come, but it was the moment I had dread. I wanted Dad to stay with me just one more minute, hour, day. But summer, his favorite season, had come, the time for me to find a way to let him go, Jesus was calling; so I kissed him goodbye through tears. As he took his final breath, a peaceful calm washed over my fears. I stared off into the distance, imagining beautiful angel wings of love, embracing my dad, then flying him to the eternal summer of Heaven above. * This is all true. I held my dad's hand and sang to him as he took his last breath. It may have been angels or my dear grandma coming to take him home. I only know that I felt comforted by my dad's peace.

MADE IN PARADISE

I Have Been To Paradise,
Living In My Former Life,
Gotten Lost I Was- In An Angel's Eyes-
Worth A Reminisce- Are Those Moments Before My Demise,
Butterflies Of Amazement- Flew In The Skies Near,
Before My Eyes- She Shined- Something Like A Chandelier.

Like A Moon, Like A Diamond, Something Within The Skies,
Brought Heaven, Brought Tranquil, Brought Smiles,
She Who Came To Embrace, Has Fallen Upon Me, As A Grace,
There I Found Her, I Found My Heart's Resting Place,
An Unspeakable Beauty, Thus Caused Damage To My Plain Eyes,
As I Perceived It- I Could Hear My Heart Say- Oh, Dearly Nice!

 Could I Be Wrong To Have Fallen For Such A Being,
An Extraordinary Woman- Beyond What My Eyes Have Ever Seen,
Groundless Became My Silence- And Trembled Was My Soul,
Such A Sight Was An Angel's- She Wasn't Any Habitual Woman At All,
So I Prayed To Allah- To Bless Me Not With Power Or Lasting Soul, 
But The Wealth To See Her As The Last One Beneath My Fall.
 
She Bewitched I, Amazingly,
Stole My Heart Otherworldly-
She Was Spotless, Something Made In Paradise,
Her Eyes Looked Somewhat Like The Sun Rise,
And Mines Were Fixed On Hers In Disbelief- Feeling My Heart Turn Colder,
I Was Spellbound- As If Beauty Wasn't In The Eyes Of The Beholder.

Her Final Words

"No." She whispered before drowning into her sorrows.
Her life had been a simple happy one. 
There were no pains and no troubles.
Life was life and people were people.
Life was simple.
and life was all about tomorrows.
Life didn't know about sorrows.
Her sorrows.
Those same sorrows that she drowned in never existed. 
They were never there, but where?
First to be sad in the naive town of joy.
Sorrow became contagious and what was known as happiness no longer was there.
It was non-exististent. 
A meager thought 
and a blessed memory.
She tried and tried.
She failed and failed.
Life was no longer hers.
For Pain was her only possession.
Her curse.
She lived and she died.
Yet, her legacy was passed on.
Never was it gone.
"No." She whispered before drowning in her sorrows, 
"Save them."

Prime Mover

Like the seraphs whose wings unfold,
Christ's light and glory goes not untold;
as the love of his humble grace
moves inside me all time and space,

as the planets orbit heaven's sun
and encircle it one by one--
so, too, am I caught in his sway,
beloved of him from day to day.

Through hosts of astral dimension
God's angels fix their attention
with expectancy and burning pause
amidst the universe's First Cause.

He, the one true Incarnation  
that begets cosmic causation,
resolves the Infinite Regress
from the pre-Socratics' egress

with his omniscient wisdom
and the archives of his kingdom
where all can come and read and know
what miracles he'll yet bestow.

In honour of a Little Boy who became an Angel just before Christmas

The lights are down this Christmas

The stars refuse to shine

The angels seem to have flown away

As the bells they sadly chime

 

You give and you take

But our hearts, it just breaks

Waiting for that chirpy little voice

For those tiny feet to make the pitter-patter noise

 

The tears don’t stop flowing this Christmas

As the toys are put away

No Santa can change this Christmas

Who can rewind that Goodbye Day?

 

Will You hold our hands this Christmas

We can’t bear to face the week

With the light snuffed out this Christmas

What good can the New year be?

 

Are we at the Burning Bush?

Makes us fear to draw near…

Yet our only hope, to see our little angel again

Is to hold to You and the Hope You give, through the pain…

 

Draw near O Lord, this Christmas

To our tired, worn and battered hearts

Pray a glimpse of Heaven You give

Where our Little Angel now plays

As he daily sees Your face

Be to us here below

Emmanuel… God with us…

The Comfort of an Angel

Alone in my room I lay grieving on my bed.
I suddenly feel a hand touch my head.
God sent me an angel to comfort my soul.
I'm not alone now, her hand I will hold.
A comforting angel whom I did not fear,
stood there beside me and dried my tears.
I hear an angel's voice,
to my heart she did sing.
I even felt the fluttering of her great wings.
God sent me an angel to comfort my soul.
I felt her hand brush upon me,
the long locks of gold.
The light around her was so very bright.
The dress she was wearing was the brightest of white.
She washed upon me the feeling of peace.
No longer did I have the weight of grief.
A glorious, heavenly, spiritual being.
I know now it was not a dream.
God sent me an angel to comfort my soul.
I will never be alone in the cold.

Weep and a Moan

Watching the sequence of sound coming out of your mouth...
But the screaming is too loud.
I can speak,
But my brain doesn't want to.

I closed the door.
Silence called for me.
Should I cry or should I run after her?

What have I done to you?
but love you uncontrollably.

Shes then left speechless.
It looks like shes out of breath,
but really I broke her.

She was fragile.
So innocent.

Run, Just run.
A gun raised..
up to her mouth.
And a taint on her heart.

Angel in Hell

An Angel in Hell
is a light in the dark
who mourns for those who fell
those still with a mark

An Angel in Hell
is the sun in the rain
who releases us from this spell
who frees us from this pain

An Angel in Hell
is love amidst hate
who comes to where we dwell
and saves us from this fate

Angel Clouds

~*~Angel Clouds~*~

Angel clouds all around
Everywhere they are proclaiming the glory of our King!
Trumpets, lions, and angels heralding!
Every single cloud a masterpiece calling out to the world 
That the Messiah is soon to arrive on the scene.
Are you ready? Are you ready to see Jesus in His fullest glory?
The angels are standing their posts and entertaining themselves
Through their God-given creativity.
Likened to children building sandcastles along the edge of a mighty ocean
They are sculpting and creating images to bring glory to their King!
The next time you look up and see an image of our Savior remember 
The children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The angels made clouds for them too as they traversed the wilderness
For 40 long years.
The angels entertained them with their gifts of creativity and gave them a focal
point too!
Look up, children of the most high God. Look up and see the splendors of his 
mighty angelic army.
They are doing their part to cheer on the Bride of Christ too!

I dedicate this poem to my very dear friend, Andrea Dietrich, who is one of my 
favorite poets of all time! This poem is written in response to the many 
supernatural sightings around the world of magnificent shaped clouds created 
in their fullest glory to honor the soon arrival of Jesus Christ to collect his 
Bride! The rapture of the church of Jesus Christ is at hand. Repent and be 
ready or be prepared to endure the most difficult time this planet has ever 
experienced. These are the events written of in the book of Acts 2:19.

When Angels Cried

I believe in angels
I saw one just today
She sat beside a mother
As they took her child away

She wrapped her wings around her
She listened while mom prayed
Through coffee cups and flowing tears
And yet the angel stayed

Nurses, doctors came and went
Daylight turned to eve
Mom sat alone or paced the halls
And yet the angel would not leave

Scrubs of green approached the doors
With paper shoes; mask hanging free
The angel stayed because she knew
The news was bad, you see

A little boy was draped in light
He joined the angel by her side
They held mom's hand as she was told
Her baby boy had died.

Satan in-verse

Compared to a snake that slithers and slides,
A tongue with a fork, he hisses and hides. 

He's patiently waiting, he envies our death.
A mind fueled by sloth, and wrath on his breath.

He traps using snares, with sin as a curse. 
He's evil and sly, his charm is rehearsed. 

We're tempted by lust, gluttony and greed.
These actions are food, he needs it to feed. 

Preventing the peace, his mission is clear.
To cause us all pain, our joy is his fear. 

He covets our souls, to pride his command.
To enflame our hate, and rule as he planned. 

He's tortured and burning in fires below,
A place for the wicked, a place without snow. 

Deciphered as Lucifer, an angel that fell.
Only Gods' chosen people, the righteous prevail. 

Prayer through kindness, and loving with care.
Shining swords of the saints, thrusted up in the air.

- Yours Truly

Love's Guides

Oh my God, to be...be an angel beside thee
would I ever want, or need, feel the sun or plant a seed.
No, I would not long, as emotional man, or pine for thee
nor, claim a shape, or form, for I'd no earthly need.

Oh my God, to be...be an angel beside thee
an atom, a harmonic, a frequency, so tuned
to be a sprite angelical upon a bold cosmic sea
a vibrant thread of near perfection fixed, festooned.

Oh my God, to be...be an angel beside thee
an angel who for love takes form, and to earth is lost,
who seeks a soul, a form to taste, to hear and two eyes to see
to help our earthly brethren find peace at any cost.

With your aid God, I will help them to rise
their clay forms dispersed your love the guide.
















Angels ..such as I..descending, bring from above, 
Echoes of ... God's own.. mercy, whispers of love.

From a distance the sound of feathers 
A whole host of words often whispered
As if you haven't already heard his saving message
In bitter silence we slowly become unshackled
From this lying bitter place of cold ego's
Then angel spreads her wings out on windows peak
She then keeps silent from inside her swell;
At its cold whispers haunting to dwell
Many keep to themselves not wanting to be alone
Then a cold chill sends a rage down my spine tingling like off the vine
In time the sun heats up out on waters edge devides
Many a demon would so often run away & hide
Angels totally surrenders out on its night scene
A brandished web of forbidden design,
For some the angel would lie in wait to deceive
In triumphant sounds of musical magestic beings light the scene
We our still here to help egnite its flame
While the entire world outside lies helplessly insane
Out on its playing field some have no game,

When our generation dies so does the other,
The angel of darkness will seek to inhabit its light
Shackled from a memory on a certain quest nor plight

Angels In The Hospital

I have heard of Angels before and I know that they are all around. They appearin the most unusual places at the time when you need them. You don't always recongnize them, for they don't always have wings. The angels have sweet voices and they make you feel good. They could be anyone, from your neighbors to your friends. But sometimes they are people, that you have never seen before. There are two special Angels that i want to talk about. I had a stay in the hospial, where I thought I was going to die. I had opened heart surgery and a triple by pass. As I was in an I. C. U. room of the Houston North West Medical Center, I was feeling very sick, not being able, talk or do anything. I kept praying and asking God if I would ever get out of there. My prayer was answered that night, when an Angel came to me. She said her name was Sara and she was there to care fopr me. She did just that. She sweetly smiled at me and assured me that I would be alright. By morning, she was gone, but another Angel came. She told me, her name was Julie and that now she would now take care of me. I spend four days in the I.C.U. with my Angels next to me. After that I was sent to another floor, but I will never forget those two Angels That spend those days with me. My Angels didn't have wings, but their spirit could fly free...

My Kiss From Heaven

Once, when the day was cold and misty
I set out for a trip down to a lonely spot
Filled with gardens so flowery
There, I settled down and started a work of art

Yet, my poetry was all rotten and stale
Nothing could cure my stagnant mind
Not even a sip of ale
Harshly, I chose to leave my art behind

When O Magic, O Pure Bliss
A sheep appeared, all pink in fleece
And took my pen in his hand
And gave me verses to tend

Beautiful, Lyrical
None could be more mystical
Before he left, on my cheeks, he left a kiss
And said, Fear never the evil adder's hiss!

Remember, the garden of Eden
Is still full of angels, so awakened
So relish in your poetry
As if it were your sole duty!

The church is quiet, dim and serene
Alone with the Lord I pray silently
Flickering candles cast shadows drifting
A tear falls down my face unchecked
I bow my head in my deep sorrow
O, Lord help me find the strength to live
Carry me from this pit of dark doom
I so want to shine again
The angel of death came for me
He called my name and I was not ready

The Tomb Was Empty

When Joseph had taken Jesus' body,
To his own new tomb where it was laid.
He sealed the door of the sepulchre,
By a great chiseled stone it was stayed.

Then there was Mary and the other,
Sitting over against the sepulchre door.
Not knowing of the events to happen,
Or what for them, God's plan, had in store.

To Pilate came Chief Priest's and Pharisees,
Following the preparation day.
Saying sir, the deceiver, while yet alive,
"After three days I will rise again" He did say.

Command therefore the tomb be sealed,
Lest by night, Disciples steal Him away.
Then Pilate said go, set ye there a watch,
It was Sabbaths end, and the weeks first day.

Then came the two Mary's the sepulchre to see,
And behold an earthquake came, full blown.
Descending from Heaven an Angel did appear,
Rolling from the sepulchre door the stone.

His look was as lightening, and raiment as snow,
With great fear the keepers were shaken.
To the Mary's was said, "this Jesus ye seek,
Has risen, His disciples have not taken".

The Angel said come, see the place He lay,
Finding naught, but His grave clothes.
He goeth into Galilee where you shall see,
Go tell His disciples that He arose.


Taken from Matthew 27/28

Loving touch

Your hands are like sunshine that

warms the inner parts of my soul.



The rays warming my inner being,

keeps me thinking of how the colors

of the flowers are so vibrant and

powerful in  their activity.



As the flowers dance in a slight breeze,

the sun gives way to darkness and the night sky embraces the stars so numerous,



so shiny, so many.



As the night fades, the sun  warms the day,



The breeze picks up the flowers in a dance, and your hands warm my soul again,



with the rays from the suns warmth and the shadows of the colors show the love inside your touch.

The meaning of ISLAM2

                                           ...... Please read part one first.......

? How did Muhammad (may peace be upon him) become a prophet and a messenger of God?

At the age of 40, while engaged in a meditative retreat, Muhammad received his first revelation from God through the Angel Gabriel. This revelation, which continued for twenty-three years, is known as the Quran.
As soon as he began to recite the words he heard from Gabriel, and to preach the truth which God had revealed to him, he and his small group of followers suffered bitter persecution, which grew so fierce that in the year 622 God gave them the command to emigrate. This event, the Hijra, 'migration', in which they left Makkah for the city of Madinah some 260 miles to the north, marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar.
After several years, the Prophet and his followers were able to return to Makkah, where they forgave their enemies and established Islam definitively. Before the Prophet died at the age of 63, the greater part of Arabia was Muslim, and within a century of his death Islam had spread to Spain in the West and as far East as China. 

? What is the Quran?

The Quran is a record of the exact words revealed by God through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad. It was memorized by Muhammad and then dictated to his Companions, and written down by scribes, who cross-checked it during his lifetime. Not one word of its 114 chapters, Suras, has been changed over the centuries, so that the Quran is in every detail the unique and miraculous text which was revealed to Muhammad fourteen centuries ago.


? What is the Quran about?
The Quran, the last revealed Word of God, is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures. At the same time it provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and an equitable economic system.

Angel of Justice

An Angel of Justice
Cometh on earth

Judgeth all people
Those good and those bad

Taketh under his wings
All of the innocent

The rest lives in fear
Those are condemned

Her eyes are white
And as bright as sun

Who looketh inside
Becomes a weak runt

Thou shalt be afraid
Every night, every day

An Angel awaits
For vengeance on earth

An Angel in Danger

Life's gifts is of all the good and 
the bad 
Never knowing what may arise 
An angel is everlasting hope we 
long to have and to hold 
We have watched you through 
just like a hawk 
We will never give up on you 
we know you are strong 
Who the angels will pull you 
through somehow 
Where there is a will there's a 
way 
And with god looking over us 
well know we will be safe
Even tho this deadly danger of 
a disease took you over
We know in our hearts that 
steady burns yull be ok 
As a fighter like Athena (a 
warriors guide)you will grow 
stronger 
Even now we see your alot 
better 
Must be these guardians of 
heaven looking over you 
Feeling good with this is all you 
may need 
This danger none should live 
But as long as there is Angels 
up above its all you will ever 
need to pull through 
A tragic time.

Resurrected By An Angel

When I wanted it all to end and there was no one there to help,
God sent an angel to my side to save me from myself.
"What about your family?" The angel said to me.
I am all alone in this world. I'm done. Just leave me be.
"God loves you even though right now you can't see it.
He has a plan for your life. Submit and just believe it."
How can God still love me after everything I have done?
"Well let me tell you,'For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son."
If He loves me so much then why did my life fall apart?
"Oh sweet child, could you not feel Him speaking to your  heart?
Have some faith in Him. Don't make your parents bury you.
If you trust fully in Him, when you can't walk He will carry you."
Ok I will give in to Him. I submit to His will.
My legs have grown so weary from fighting this battle uphill.
"Now you will never be alone. He will always stand by your side,
So when life gets rough again you won't have to run and hide.
Stand firm in your salvation. Stand firm and do what's right.
For God will change your heart so you can walk out of the dark into the Light."

Awakening

Are we awake or are we still sleeping?
Blind to the hurt, and deaf to the weeping.
Ashamed of religion and supportive of the new,
Aware of the lies and hidden from what’s true. 

Worship the evil and turn away the pure,
Developing disease with an unknown cure.
Starving the poor and overfeeding the wealthy.
Killing the sick and drugging the healthy. 

Going to war for some kind of power,
Building tall structures over all types of flower.
Cutting the trees and polluting the air,
All out of greed, with no sort of care. 

Turning us against our own, 
And help from up above.
Making us beings of hate,
Instead of ones of love. 

Demonizing the mystic,
Criticizing the wise.
Making our own family members,
Into people that we despise.

Awaken to the torment, 
Be aware of all the pain. 
Those who are misleading,
And claiming that we are insane.

Beautiful Children

Singing around in love;
Smiles built from the ground.
Holding hands in the dance;
Laughing with brothers and sisters,
All in His Glorious Name.
Throughout His perfectly sculpted land:
Look around because this is it;
Look around because this is love;
Look around and know, understand, comprehend,
Rejoice because you are perfect;
You are God's beautiful children!

Nerves Gone Wild

Nerves in a jar, my life is a mess
I hurt form this world as my poem suggests
Cut from a rose that smells no more
Healing like a dove thats flown shore to shore
What became of our love thats anybodys guess
We forgot about thinking, now about what comes next

Some of the times I will remember more I will forget
It hurts today tommorrow I will give it my best
My head becomes heavy my mind becomes my nest
What to do with all of the love I have here hidden in my vest
Come to my sences my heart in my hand
I think about all of the things that I can
My now today I understand
I can will you the love to better comprehend
From here I wish you the world
The universe a best
Untill you are willing 
The person beside me is only a guest

God Only Knows

Kisses, hugs, softly cuddled,
a baby's giggle,
a family huddled.
Empty chair
where he once sat.
Why, dear God
are we left with that?

Tears, frustration, anger stirs
why's he gone so soon?
Days to months how time blurs.
Memories can't die
like people do.
why, dear God
did he go to you?

Reason, truth, a higher power,
We know it's not our place
to know the date, the exact hour.
Others will go away
and empathy we will show.
we can only trust in You,
for why is not ours to know.

Come Back My Angel.....

I see in you the angel that you make of me...
I can keep close to you, yet never see.
You entered into my life like a morning sun,
You promised your life to me in the long run...
And now you'll leave me back all alone;
Like you were the sun which never shone?
Spare me my life, my heart, that's with you;
Give me back my angel, cannot live with an angel new...

Little Angels Tribute to Tragedies Newtown CT

                                “Little Angels”
     
     When God calls little children to dwell with him up above.
We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of his love.

     For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world seem so wonderful and
Mild. Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold, So he
picks a rosebud before it can grow old.

    God knows how much we need them, and so He takes only but a few
  to make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.

     Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try. 
The saddest word mankind knows will always be “Goodbye.”

    So when a little child departs, we who are left
 behind must realize God loves his children and Angels are
very hard to find.

My Mask

It hurts all the time
This pain in me never stops
I want to cry for you
I want to scream for you
I want to beg for you
I want you to be here
This cant be fair
This cant be real

But I smile and I laugh
I get up every morning to go to work
Throw on a happy face and make some jokes
I come home and enjoy my day
I have fun
And I continue on
But I’m so hurt
I’m so lost

Seeing you in there killed me
I could never get the phone call out my head
The screams from my mom
The walk up there to see if it was true
But most of all I wont forget you
In the casket
Touching your hand
You were so cold
You didn’t belong there
Seeing you go into the ground
Seeing them fall apart
Feeling my heart break into pieces
When all I could do is scream
I will never forget that day

And every time I smile I want to cry
Every time I laugh I want to cry
Every time I think I want to cry
Every breath I take takes a little bit out of me
Because I want to cry

I want this to not be real
I want to had spend more time with you
I want to hug you
Laugh with you 
Tell you I love you
That I was always there
That I am still always here

I am so broken
But I continue on with life

Because God took you and not me
He wanted me here for a reason
So ill continue on for
You
I will laugh
And smile
And pretend
Anything to make it to the end
To see you

I miss you just isn’t enough
It doesn’t mean enough


What heals a broken heart?
Time they say

But time wont bring you back
So my heart stays broken
As I pretend to smile

I miss you
I miss you
I miss you


As I’m falling apart

My mask then goes on



RIP Bebo... 17 was to young

The Padre Of Old St Anthony

There he stood in the 
garden,a gentle fellow 
with glowing gown; 
radiating glory.
  His countenance was 
that of an Angel,
The Padre of old St 
Anthony.
  As I approached him,he 
gave me a warm.
Then he told me why he 
came to the mission,the 
mission in old St Anthony.
  We knelt down to pray,I 
thanked the Lord for a 
man such as this.
   Then the chapel bells 
the rang,I heard a 
voice"child it is time."
   I looked,lo saw I a fiery 
figure beckoning him to 
heaven.
  He stood up and looked 
at me with tender love in 
his eyes.
   Then I knew this man 
was an Angel,the Padre 
of old St Anthony.
   With joyous heart,I left 
the vicinity of old St 
Anthony.

My Angel

She is my angel sent from above
Sent just in time and like a dove
Inspired this stubborn heart to soar
Abandon my self-indulgence; such a bore

She came along with absolute trust and needs 
Watched her grow as she planted seeds
Unconditional love within me grew
Groomed my heart; my regrets now few

Gratitude and merit I give to my King
For my angel and for mercy, both songs to sing
Invaluable lessons I have learned
Through her, multitude blessings I have earned

Protection

Keep me safe wherever I go,
Whether through places of sand or snow.
Save me when I am in danger,
Guide me to the right strangers.
Help me wherever and whenever, 
Help me keep it together.

Keep me safe wherever I may be,
Whether I am held captive somewhere, or elsewhere roaming free.
Save me when I am stuck,
Bring me better luck.
Help me travel, 
Help my dreams and goals unravel.

Fame

She dreams of a throne
where she is not alone 

Dreams of stars

Wishes for peace 
where pain is least 

Hopes for grace 
where she can see his face

hasn't changed

Razor Blade State of Mind

I'm in a razor blade state of mind,
A place of darkness that's hard to find.

I sleep tangled in a blanket of pain,
On a mattress full of mayhem.
The darkness surrounds me
And there's nothing I can do. 
My past has become the lightning rod,
The only means by which my future
Can seem to conduct itself.
But who do I think I'm fooling;
What's an orchestra without a conductor? 

I once sang out loud,
But now I'm drowned.
The body electric left
Somewhere in a field,
Where it ceases to breathe.
We have no hope here,
We have no hope left. 

My mind is like my verse;
Jumbled and pointlessly poignant,
Hopelessly optimistic.
Scarred and scared and sacred,
It means so much nothing
That it's bound to mean something.

I am everything I despise,
Nothing that I admire;
I am sweat and I transpire,
Not so wet like fire. 
I'm in a razor blade state of mind,
I tell the truth but I'm a liar.

Sicklied Breezes

Here comes that familiar breeze again Emptied of hope, it always returns to refill Some other abandoned soul A soul that delves deep into my own, Drifting in an almost shameful stance Festered ignorance, time, and thought Resting under the wing of frightened hope It is cool, like any ordinary breeze It pleases all that feel it, save I For I know it longs to take all that I have In one…single… swoosh You overlooked demon! Why are you so gentle? Why must you manifest in sorrow and woe? Sleeping in the convent of my soul As others praise you and thank you You take me under tow Forever more, lost in this sicklied growth With a silent tune of rests within notes I remain where the breath is taken I remain your host The breeze grows painstakingly warm Filling all with passions unfolding Each soul finds its home Leaving me alone with a soul untold Always awake and crawling… and screaming Bold, all-knowing and thoughtless Wingless, tainted…filled with dread It is warm and hated by all that behold it And I grasp it, and hate it, and LOVE IT For it takes nothing and gives me all In multitudinous shrouds Beloved angel—why do you burn me so… Leading me into your sick embraces As others curse to your face You forever release in me A despairing freedom that I know longer wish for The melody caught—no room to breathe Harmony caked with ignorance does seethe For all no longer see… I was always the caller

Trust in a smile



 A smiley face, a warm

 embrace. A cheerful

 glance from our loving

 spirit. Why the need to

 trace back such embrace?

 Can't we just trust in the

 flow from within? In the flow

 we receive. Smiling happy

 people are all around, the

 message is completely sound.

Nothing is better than that

Waiting for the bus to come

Excited. Giving God glory
Only 1 God I praise
I always get on my neese and pray

Temptaion will always make me stronger in Jesus name.
I know that God will always be there for me.
That will never change

Stay stong.Keep fighting. Never give up.
Jesus is right there for you. I love you and God does too.

Subconscious On My Mind

She visits in my dreams,
A place that I love to go,
For when my body is sleeping;
My subconscious starts to show.

She is not the same as when I’m awake,
She is fierce and unafraid; 
She watches over the pillows,
Where my head is soundly laid. 

She has wings just like an Angel,
Only hers are made of light;
With brilliant rainbow hues,
Enough to shine throughout the night. 

To me she looks much older,
Maybe even wise; 
One look at me and I know,
She can see right through my lies.

For her and I are one,
No hiding from the truth;
She understands that I’m growing,
Developing from my youth. 

She never passes judgment,
For herself would be included;
Her thoughts are always brilliant;
And never convoluted.  
I’m referring to my soul;
Aged throughout my lives.
She gives my words their meanings;
And my body is what she drives.

Inspiring my movements,
And wiping all of my tears;
Her voice is mine but rings through,
My head and out my ears. 

Perhaps it’s her who is writing this,
Giving me the rhyme;
My subconscious and my consciousness;
Working together for all of time. 

Although most won’t understand this,
That it is about a different part of me,
Tonight under the full-moon;
I’m setting my spirit free.

Allowed to dance in the stars,
And run across the sky;
Only to return to our body,
Suppressing her urge to fly.

GOD'S Scrapbook-part1


I drew closer as the angel whispered,
'Come and you shall behold!'
I saw a book with an inlaid cover of precious stones,
And embossed in purest gold.

As he spoke, he turned around,
Placing a crystal key within my grasp,
And all drew silent as the lock sprang open,
And I undid the ivory clasp.

I reached inside and gently removed,
The book from its satin case,
I then let the angel be my guide,
As we left that Holy place.

He soon led me to a carpenter's bench,
And he bid that I sit down,
And pointing to objects on the top,
He said, 'All these in this book are found.'

I stared at and touched the simple things,
That lay across God's table,
But as my mind was only 'finite',
To discover their use, I was not able.

Chisels, paint brushes, dried flowers and twigs,
Many cut-out pics of the LORD,
There were broken shards of pottery, small piles of blackest coal,
A cup of water and a wineskin from which oil was poured.

I marveled as I touched His book,
But then thought there could be NO WAY,
For how could a work so beautiful,
Have inside it, blackened coal and lumps of clay?

Deeply perplexed, I mulled over the mystery,
And turned to the angel to speak,
For surely he knew the clues,
To the answers I did seek.

Then a presence entered silently,
And filled the room with light,
I knew at once that HE was there,
My spirit leaped and danced with delight.

My legs shook and on my knees I fell,
And bowing, I lowered my head in shame,
Then I felt His hand upon my head,
And I looked up when He called My name...

Deep in the Woods

Deep in the woods,

the branches dance in the wind,

wild and free,


Spreading their fragrance for

you and me.


Wild flowers sway,

as the wind try's picking them up,


Their roots planted firmly,

as they flow from side to side,


showing us all their glory,

and our makers touch inside,


shadows follow as they calmly go slow,

Deep in the woods,

time is well known,

as night takes hold,

until the morning,

when light takes control.

What Easter Means To Me

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

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

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

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

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

ANGEL IN MY POCKET

  I have an angel in my pocket
  God put her there for me
  You may not believe it
  She's not an angel you can see

  But when I am feeling sad
  And my way seems hard to find
  I take time out and say a prayer
  And talk to this angel of mine

  I will always keep her in my pocket
  Close here near my heart
  Knowing she will help me
  And that we will never part

My Baby Angel

I'm sitting here thinking,
  thinking about the day.
The day my Lord Jesus Christ,
  carried my baby angel away.

Then I think my baby angel sings,
  no sorrow, only laughter and play.
While our Lord God Highest of High,
  The Almighty leads and lights the way.

Holding the hand of Jesus Christ,
  my baby angel walks golden streets.
I miss my little angel and one day,
  One day in glorious heaven we will meet.

A day I will praise and rejoice,
  My soul will see your face.
We'll be together forever and I'll never,
  again feel so out of place.

HE IS THE GOD OF THE HILLS AND THE VALLEYS

His love sheltered me in my highs
his grace reached me in my lows

his goodness warmed me in my hills
his mercy called me in my valleys

             through my

             hills and valley

I will taste the sweetness of my highs in my lows
                                           (smile in my tears) 
I will smell the aroma of my hills in valleys

I will kiss the smooth lips of my ups In my downs
                                          (success in my failures)

Never Take Hate Outside

When you're hurt inside,
And there's no where to hide,
And there's no one on your side,
And it's killing your pride,
Inside,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is chocking,
The heavy words never spoken,
The things that hurt you inside,
When love has died,
Inside,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is gone,
From being alone,
And it beats a solemn tone,

When you're cold inside,
It's only a short ride,
Never take hate outside

Kidnapped Angel

This shouldn't happen,
To anyone.....
Not ever.
The pain of losing a youthful and yet radiant life
Someone who meant so much to us
The end was not suppose to be like this.
In God's eyes this was the best way
That He could call her home
Laughter that is still ringing in our ears
The smile that we see,
The smile that haunts us in our sleep.....
She was and is
An Angel here on Earth
And an Angel up in Heaven
Yet even in knowing that she's in a better place
We are still somewhat incapable
Of grasping this tragedy
But we WILL see her beautiful smiling face again
One of these days...
We will also meet our Creator......
And she'll be standing at His glorious side,
Waiting for us to come Home......

Heaven's Doorway

As I leave this earthly realm
I travel high above the stars 
An unseen  celestial pilot at the helm
A vision of a mist from afar

In the clouds light years
from earth, I come upon a set of stairs
I ascend even higher than before
And finally the Pearly Gates!...Heaven's Door

The light I see is a pure, perfect light
I genuflect in awe of this sight
Then I wondered if my name is even in the Book
I approach meekly and the angel takes a look

The angel slowly flips the pages
I start sweating as my mind engages
All my sins flash before me too
I'm hoping that mercy will see me through

Finally the angel calls my name
The joy I feel,... words cannot explain
I enter through the gates  and see my mother's brothers
They  hug me, I am overjoyed to also see my grandmother
Joyful tears and hugs flow as I see many others
A feeling of perfect peace comes over me
It's as if  I am a brand new person, sinless and free

The I hear my sister call my name
I run and kiss her, she was so  glad I came
Friends and family from way back when
It was heavenly to be together again
And we sang everlasting praises
To God, whose grace eternally amazes

Under The Swaying Moon

I found you there
As if in a dream
Swaying to a lunar song
Under the moonbeams

You look towards me
and beckon me closer with your smile
It feels like i'm walking on air
In my chest,my heart beats wild

We stand hand in hand
Moving closer into an embrace 
If only you knew
How much you make my heart race

Oh mysterious siren of my fantasy
Why do you beguile me so
Why do you etched yourself deep
Deep into my soul

Oh beautiful goddess in human flesh
Oh my wondrous angel from above
You feel me with need
Only sated by your love

Here you are smiling in my arms
Surrounding me in your rapture
I'll cherish this moment forever
By you my hearts has been captured

We make our vows here under the moon
As light continues to grow,the flowers bloom

Sweet angel on mine
For coming into my heart and my life
Thank you so my love,and thanks to you my God
I found paradise under the swaying moonlight

Thunders Shadow

As the sky gets dark

the clouds role in


Shadows flow through summers wind


Thunder pounds the sky's so wide


bringing in the rain so fast

birds take shelter from thunders roar



shadows fade and  wind ignores

Never in a million years

Never in a million years would i have thought 
this to be,
my bestfriend, companion, and so special
to me.
if i wouldnt have opened my eyes,
she could have just passed by and walked right 
outta my life.
but in Gods weird since of loving humor way,
today he brought Brittany Back to stay,
a life from my past that i had lost,
never knowing what would be Gods cost.
Now i sit hear always waiting to see,
her simple smile brighten up for me.
The friendship, hugs, smiles and the tug at my heart,
now i know it was just the start.
I may not always be the best,
but yet she still chooses me above all the rest.
all i ask is please let this be I love you Brittany,
and God please bring her home to Me...

Let the fate decide

Let the fate decide 
I write not knowing of what comes
Not realizing the facts
Am not ready for the pain that is on his way
On his way to let down many hopes
To injure many souls 
To stop the proud of one another
I am asking if God could give me a chance 
To prove that I am worth the victory 
To study more harder
To close the lights rarer 
To give the ones I love a hug 
To give them my pride, my tiredness 
My hope for another day to come
And I be the one 
My ears are hearing voices fighting 
For what is right or wrong 
I really wish 
If an angel could fall from the sky 
And remove my eternal pain 
And give me a life I could smile in 
Give me a name, to live with
Give me a tissue to wipe all my tears away 
To miss the love of my parents 
And they’re respect for one another
Would give me a reason to live each day with
To give me a reason to fight for 
If there was angel 
Who would do all this? 
Who would send God my Prayers? 
And send God my begs and hopes for forgiveness
I wish, wish simple word, hard to make 
 Hard to achieve,….
Will the angel send my prayers 
Send my begs 
Send my hopes of forgiveness
Give me the love, honor ,name ,and… the reason to fight , to live
This life that has no justice….

Il Fiore Della Bruma P1

In a moment, a lapse of anguish
Through the sanded markets that
The mind implored.
Dust coughed up
And crystallised silence;
Each moan and cry
Of every wrapped face
Became a whisper,
As blood might echo an unheard drip
Into a lake of cold concern.
I do not know how the street kings felt
For upon re-opening they continued much the same;
Decrepit focus on none but their own.
It would sadden me to think the whip of this
Aged and ground earth
Was nothing more than an inconvenience…
But I do not know how the street kings felt,
For my only sense was the smell of mud from my hands,
As I pushed my eyelids shut.

I was never one of the stalls;
I had played that game and not liked it.
Instead what was I?
Scarce confess more than a ghost.
I had dropped an eye into the weeping tomb,
I had retraced each bone with affection
And made self-labour of their wandering loss.
I had carved a hole so deep within
That I may plunge.
Rise as I did, in the scope of the curious
I had no form known to this winding world.
I had a difference, for sure, there was much that I could not now.
Only sleep and give; remaining as dead as I ever was.
I lay naked upon the grazing sand,
Skin as cold as the failing tree.

But in this moment
The mournful fled,
My arms less heavy than known.
The wind spluttered,
Shook its anchor from retreat,
Revealing sights of the like
That opens the lungs.
An image serene, that beauty becomes existence.
I had dropped an eye into the weeping tomb
Now, returned with a thousand unseen truths.
This scope, upon which all light was born,
This blessing, upon which my skin was warmed,
This infinitely gentle and delicate sky
That I had long looked for.
Myself had withered and decayed
To reignite a brighter flame.
And as this new form,
My mind was able to understand these sights.
I lay still upon my back,
My eyes awake with the possibility,
My mouth gaped;
Hope wrapped its arms, like a quilt;
I was soothed enough.

And as in a touch, I breathed.

Golden hair, with eyes as blue as the sea.
That would have been me,
But now I am a young woman
Destined to set my people free.

sing me a lullaby

Sing me a soft lullaby
to hush away my fears
Pull your arms around me
Wipe away my salty tears
Sing to me of muddy shoes
And someone asking for a dime
Tell me who rips your heart out
And handles it with care
Sing to me of angels and a whisper of a prayer
sing to me a lullaby
That ill sing my unborn child
Hold me tight and brush my hair
Away to see my smile
Sing me into slumber
Where happiness exists 
Sing me a soft lullaby
And ill finally get some rest

What Is Christmas About

What is Christmas all about?  Santa and his elves?
Gifts we give to someone else?  Gifts we get ourselves?
Decorations on a tree?  Hoping snow will fall?
Trips to see a family?  That’s not it at all.
Christmas is about a time God looked down on man,
Saw him in a sinful state, and devised a plan.
Christmas is about a place here upon this earth
Where God sent His precious Son through a virgin birth.
Christmas is about a man and his wife-to-be
Sitting in a stable small, now a family.
Christmas is about a Babe born that quiet night
With an angel choir above looking at the sight.
Christmas is about some men there upon a hill
Hearing angel choirs that night when it had been still.
Christmas is about these words whispered near the inn:
“His name will be Jesus Christ, He’ll save us from our sin.”
Christmas is about the plan for this child who came:
Dying on a rugged cross in agony and shame.
Dying so all men could be by God justified
When they trusted in His Son who there hung and died.
Christmas is about God’s Son, not about the elves,
Not about the gifts we give or that we get ourselves.
Christmas is about a life we can live again,
Washed much whiter than the snow from our every sin.
Christmas is about a tree where His blood was given
To make us His family and a home in heaven.
What is Christmas all about?  Oh, I hope you know
That it is about God’s love that to us He shows.
When you come to Him by faith, you will sing and shout,
For you’ll really know right then what Christmas is about.

Mio Angelo

Your eyes shine and spakle and thy withered eyes do wake.
Wonder, page me up from the heavens unto you and I sit in waiting for thee.
Come onto me my angel.
Even though I do not deserve what you have to give.
Even though do I pale in comparitive view.

Oh, how do you think so highly,
Want so badly..
Something so desolate and broken?
Wonder, mend thy heart when all was shattered.
Even though I need it now and could not live without.
Even though what is now my heart would surely stop.

The Angel take my hand in the wind.
Under his breath he does say "You will be saved"
Wonder, my angel never lies for truth be told.
Even though I only get by in the threshhold of thee's words.
Even though rarely I demine his thoughts and never question his genuineness.

Thriving under the wings of the angel, my gaze flickers once,
To thy truimphant face of my hero.
Wonder, there it stays and shall remain immobile and frozen.
Even though I so stubbornly accustome myself to self preservation.
Even though it was once seemingly impossible to carry on.

Love emerge at first cautious and then in vain, finally absolute, timid nevermore.
Birth of new hope when was once dead, then numb.
Wonder, encase thee with thy adoring company.
Even though I understand what this means.
Even though the youth in us is overbearing, ignorance is not as blissfully blind as is feeling.

Soul's Ascension

A dying girl
Uplifted by a whirl
Of singing voices,
She no longer regrets her choices.

Silently You whisper

Silently You whisper

as I kneel to You in prayer.

Your love only, is what keeps me there.

Silently You whisper

as the tears flow to the ground.

I'm here with you dear

take my hand and walk very near.


Silently You whisper

inside my heart Lord,


I hear, I won't depart

silently I kneel

softly You touch me

suddenly You set me free.


Suddenly You whisper.

She



A sweetly-scented, earthy rain-storm,
she came to me,

thunderously raging with raw emotion,
she came to me,

drenched in the essence of truth,
she came to me,

she touched a chord deep inside,
she strummed away all emptiness,

she came to me,

once...

she comes to me,

still...


a gentle presence filling my life,


she comes to me,


still,

a healing spirit soothing all inner strife.

Gratitude

Time drags on in this chair, 
 As I wait for the brilliant one.
Each time the door swings out, 
 I look for him to say he's done.

Minutes turn into hours, 
 and all I can do is stare at the clock.
Finally, after what seems like forever, 
 Here comes my son's Doc.

As if in slow motion, I stand.
 Anxiously, I await him to say, 
"The surgery went well, but 
 of course in the hospital, he'll have to stay."

"When can I see him?"
 is what I quietly ask.
"Within the hour," he replies
 "But be warned, it'll be no easy task."

As I walk in the recovery room, 
 He lay so still on his hospital bed.
If I didn't know better, 
 I'd have thought he might be dead.

His recovery takes, oh so long and
 the first time my Angel opened his eyes, 
I realized that prayers are answered,
 And God had heard all my cries.

My gratitude for God and Dr Carson swelled, 
 when my son took an non ventilator aided breath.
We had won the fight for my son's life, 
 and we actually cheated DEATH.

We had to repeat this trying
 scene for a total times of three.
It kept me bitter and stressed. 
 Why couldn't He leave my Angel be?

I see now, what's done is meant to happen.
 And I have learned my lesson in GRATITUDE.
To not be trusting that HE knows best, 
 was not only wrong, it was just plain rude.

I'm understanding now, 
 more than you'll ever know.
And when I see my son alive and breathing, 
 my heart and soul radiates for God, a special glow.




*This is a true story, my son went through 3 heart surgeries before 5 months old and this
is dedicated to God, Dr. Carson, Dr. Dooley, and Dr. Willis Williams*

Emerald Green

Fated was I, that day I saw
What left me in rigid awe
For never have I ever seen
Such things in a human being
 
Stolen from the earth
And Gifted to you at birth
Beautiful they are in every way
Crafted by god on the 7th day
 
Sparkle like stars, they do
But they tell history too
Like portals to the soul of god 
they are
Singing the songs of creation of 
far
 
Time goes 1 minute by
And I have not blinked an eye
For I shall dare not miss
The glorious moment in this
 
Out of my chest, this heart did 
pound
And my blood raced at the 
speed of sound
Any longer and I would be dead
So I stole my gaze away instead
 
Back on earth, I now stand
With beads of sweat in my hand
I gather my thoughts and begin 
to ponder
Why did I meet this universal 
wonder
 
For everything, there is a cause
For I've missed my bus, while in 
a pause
Its destination, the bus did not 
meet
For it fell 200 feet
 
Now I see from a glance
That God has given another 
chance
luck was my friend that day I 
saw
What left me in rigid awe
 
For never have I ever seen..
 
Such Angelic Eyes of Emerald 
Green...

Lifes Trial and Tribulations

Walking down the hallway,
Seeing all the doorways,
And all the choices in one's life,
Making it difficult to choose,
The right room from all the others,
Bringing you the wisdom and truth,
From all the imperfections that are within us all,
Which sometimes makes us crawl,
On our hands and knees,
To discover what is right and survive,
In life as long as we can accept,
What life brings us all in our hearts,
Which we patiently accept all the pleasures,
And sacrifice much in our lives,
Which makes us correct our flaws,
Which is a big struggle,
Till we can open our eyes,
And see what we have to believe in,
Is greater than our lives can ever be,
Cause God created us all,
But the choices we make are ours to make,
To find the happiness,
But finding Him and believing in Him,
Is ours to be found and kept,
To find true happiness in our lives.

Diary of a Prophet

Words were written in backward mode 
Mirrors could not speak his language mode
He spoke in metaphors 
He spoke in mathematics his words calculated days 
Days that will rain blood
Skies turning bloody dark

Breathing better in the dark with no good lucks
He explained dreams but his pages got fooled 
Stupid diary was never even full 
Though ruined 
The prophet was labelled an idiot speaking idioms
Melting aluminium messages like an idiot
In stadiums he melted his words 

He spoke
We keep breathing but we give birth to enemies
He spoke remedies 
Romanticized remedies 
The message went viral faster than the speed of virus
He fell in love with the Julianas who sucked your brains out your pockets 

Rockets 
Call them rock stars 
They rock minds with their hip hop choices 
While their hips are popped on the other side
He spoke idioms
He got recycled living next to a bin.
The media spoke he got killed by the beans
Have been made mcess freeze 
Please speak in the breeze 
Selling their souls to booze

Before you hook up 
Just look up and be like the crocks
The prophet spoke in idioms 
Since birth his mother spoke one language tool 
Grow and fetch us food 
In different languages he got in the mood
Like tailor made lyrics the prophet got screwed 
The media spoke he got killed by the beans 
Have been made mcess freeze

Please just breathe one singular sentence
If you know the prophet 
Who spoke
Gibberish
Who spoke 
Who made you eat from his palm 
Without digging your pockets
 Scream out loud and raise the rocket
The family of maize meal hunters 

Sometimes mixed with Rastafarian movements
Let's keep on writing  
Like rastas let's keep writing explosive tones
When they keep flipping paintings 
Selling iconic roles
Papers flow in music videos 
Kids get robbed their future
We get popped for speaking the truth

The prophet wrote 
Spoke like a pro
He wrote and got popped
Like a pro
Prophesying danger heavier than suicide notes

I wish I was an A4 paper
The diary spoke

Radiant Beginning

From the middle of the outskirts an angel falls on knee before the beauty of the Good LORD For that angels tears are falling from the beauty, how wonderful is he. God is calling to his mortals calling for the ones who see. The LORD is looking upon the people from which all life has spread and that life is ever humble for the LORD lives in our heart and head. When we all go to see him his outstanding glory we shall hymn. so here is that angel lying on the outskirts of earth and life within, he will look to see the beauty of Jesus who calls to him, God the Father, and his children are not just parts of history for when the rapture is coming closer God the father will call to me

Greatest Inspiration

You are the greatest inspiration of mine,
Sweeter than a glass of wine,
Brighter than a child’s eye,
Truer than my truest lie.
Always waiting for your call to meet,
To hold you in my arms and sleep.
You make my night the stormiest storm,
Then leave me all broke and torn.
When I rise and make it through
My heart forgets what is done by you-
Sweeter than a glass of wine,
You are the greatest inspiration of mine

Euphorianah

The sapphire-dust sun of what-were dreams
Swallow the scene, setting In the forsaken east
All I see, all I know fades into the reaper's monotone grey 
Death come near me, by my only choice 
My wintry desperation subdued, clings to they silent voice
The dusk reveals my truest nature before her blank argentine eyes
Life; the darkest of all tragedies, Romances' malady
Let me feel your breath in this frozen air
Your pulse shorter than ever
Despair's void grows inside me
Without, you I will live no longer

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

The winterwinds' tears fall on me
With whispers of you, someone I once knew
No matter in a dream or reality
Sweet tranquillity, stay with me
Calming the fears within
But the pain remains

The silvemoon's fears shine on you
Thine eyes search for mine
Oh how they shine, so deathly blue
If sacrifice needs a price
The dagger shows-
Heaven is calling us tonight

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

Covered in shadowy illusions 
Shall we dance?
Death will be lie dominion
You are my only queen
Euphorianah

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

Just let me die
If I cannot see
Euphorianah 
This night

Peaceful

Hardly any human soul can be found outside,
only lonely footsteps on the ground this time.
The cold has fallen down
upon the sleepy snuggled town.
From the quiet sky
snowflakes are waving hi.
Serenity has come at last,
not asking about anyone's past.
It is just the joy of the white night,
it is just the peace of the houses' lights.

I met the alchemist

As soon as they come; they leave
As soon as I open my eyes; they vanish
The Ghosts of my past fight the angels of my future
Or so I see it

Faith they said, had grown week
So much so that even
Ten shots of elixir felt meek
Or so I believed

Time claimed alchemy
I simply bowed
to whoever showed,
The power to prove wrong in me 

It was a long voyage
Horizon seemed like an eternity
The alchemist continued to row
And I continued to bow

‘Look up’ he said
So I did, and so I saw it
My cheeks felt warm
The breeze felt soft

As I slowly opened my eyes, I saw his work
Indeed! He spoke of the truth
Watching the bright golden truth, I stood
Making its way from up above into my room

Drinking the elixir, I smiled
Watching me, he took pride
Twisted are your ways, I said
‘Make me proud’ said he and left.

See Me

See me rest in peace with 'the sickest' on my tomb stone. See me running up to the enemy while you've gone prone. You've got to be strong in the mind as well as the soul. No other enemy's will know what you know. See me defending you. As of right now our best option is to stay true.

See me by you're side when the sky went black. I'll be here right when the devil chooses to attack. Take what you want there will be no going back. Now what you need to focus on is survival. You need to gain strength if you're going to survive along side you're rival's. They'll try to push you down. I have faith that you wield a force strong enough to take the almighty crown. Now let's try and be real. I don't know how to say this. But i have messed up our deal.

I was supposed to give you Happiness and The Human Breed. Instead i gave you Untrue peace and Eternal greed. Remember these tactics they will help you fight the battle. When the enemy is upon do not shake make a noise or rattle. Me and You can help fight the world's problem's. Even if it hurt's when we see the outcome. But I love you son and i will always be with you. I hope to see you're staying Good Proud And True.

My Walk Thru Life With Him

Listen to me and I will take you on a joinery with me
ALL MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN UNDER HIS CARE
When I was seven I fell on a glass the cut was so bad the doctor told mom and dad
I would never use my left hand again 
My mom placed a rubber ball with a rubber band on it in my hand the day the stitches came out  she told me to squeeze and never let the ball fall
HE GAVE ME BACK THE USE OF MY LEFT HAND
When I had a wreck and I was two months pregnant he wrap his hand around me 
my truck flip three times and I black out I didn't have on a seat belt and everyone
knows who has ever been in a flip that the vacuum it creates as it happens well he gave me the strength to not only hang on I bent the steering wheel with my bare hands the man who tow our truck told my husband he didn't want to make me mad not after seeing what I did to the steering wheel I told him it wasn't me all I remember was crying out to god above please protect my baby and he did the rest when I woke up their was blood every where and I thank god I was alive and prayed if my baby was no long with me it was ok I was alive and I would understand that this wasn't in his plan but when I made there 
HE NOT ONLY SAVED MY BUT AND MY BABY
It took a year of hard work to walk again but me and my baby took our first
steps together now this is not the end of the story he is still with 
HE TOOK ME THRU MY BRAIN CANCER/SURGERY 
Now what a ride I found out at 42 that I had a tumor in my right front lobe
in the brain this is where all memory is stored from childhood and all you learn in school you get where I am going with this so I have got so of it back but not all
I watch while they did my brain surgery how do you ask
I WAS WITH HIM HE HAD HIS HAND ON MY SHOULDER AND I KNEW BEFORE THE DOCTOR TOLD ME HE DIDN'T GET IT ALL 
HE TOLD ME BELIEVE IN WHAT I SAY IT WILL BE OK
Now the research show 11.6 years with all that I did but I believe in what he told me it will be ok I am now in 8.6 years and I WILL BE THE RESEARCH

There Watching Us

An angel of life looking far into the beauty. 
White dress with pink wings. The seagulls are doing her searching.
She is standing high on to a mountain side balcony.

She is waiting for her call. 
So she can sweep down for them all.
She is an Angel she has seen many things.

She cares more about your heat 
More about your soul. 
The most of all.
Living things.

What if GOD was one of us

That old age question, what does GOD look like?

What if you have already met? . . You might have seen him today?

Did you look closely at that stranger that needed help when you just walked on by?
Remember that charity worker that asked for a minute of your time?

Maybe we dont get to see GOD in his true form yet, but that dosnt mean we doont see him in this life. 

Don't be so quick to walk by . .
Dont be so quick dismiss that situation were you could have helped . . 

GOD sees everything and sometimes he's right there testing you . . Dont give up on the world just yet

If I Die Before I Wake

At a corner standing in despair 
I cried aloud into the midnight air
Brought my fists into a rage 
Scowled at my lonely, self-hate
I had no friends or even close family,
All I had was my imagination, and it was driving me crazy
So I hollered and screamed like a wild banshee
Cursing the things I couldn't grasp in my psyche
The shadows stalked while my heart just bled
I was praying to God that within his next miracle I would be dead
Just like a relic an angel came to me
Eased me of my faults and lulled me into a dream
A beautiful world where hope is a beacon and despair is gone from sight
I grabbed her hand and remembered all of a sudden
Of love that gentle rhythm; and my depression escaped without a fight
So as my eyes twitched open and I quickly looked around
Just like that the angel was gone and so was my frown
If you read this poem please quote only this
In this world our love and compassion is the only thing that should exist

Unfolding

When the deep dark wind of pain starts folding in around me

you take hold of my hands and wrap them in love.


It seems that this way of darkness unfolds right before my eyes

it's your love that keeps me alive


So precious is the thought that unwinds

of the way things use to be

when you found me the first time


You shelter me in Thy Grace

Your hands touch my face


Your ways are true

when we meet one day in the world anew

the shadows will fade and you'll make me new


Oh how I long for the time

when I see you coming in the sky

your heart in mine

the darkness leaves

my heart starts to sing


A new song for you

when we all are made brand new..

I FERVENTLY PRAYED TO THE FAIREST ANGEL

I fervently prayed to the fairest angel,
who resembled Venus dressed in white:
she wore a long gown and rang a silver bell
and chanted sweet words into the quite night.


She stood by the glittering door with a sign, " Welcome to Heaven." 
" O poor child...you are terribly late, we have no room for more!" 
the tall angel whispered with concern...
" Have you been good, never told a lie again?"
 

" Is your conscience as pure as a lily,
but lies are as dark as stormy clouds...
lies that made you look and feel ugly!"
She remarked as I heard giggling sounds.


" No, gorgeous boy you must return to Earth,
and learn to be obedient and share chores...
it's not right that your sisters wash  and wax floors,
run errands and have no time to play and chat. 


" Dear, angel I have been so sick and lay in bed,
I watched them do all those chores, but my greed makes me sad
and I promise to be a better child if my wish is granted. "
" You'd rather be here than being with them? the fair angel asked.


I nodded with an intense desire to stay as I felt a drop of rain,   
and as I reached for her gentle hand and I said, " Take me in. "
" Bring this child to me! " The mighty voice shouted as it echoed
through the golden chambers as angels gathered around.


That shining door that was kept closed, suddenly opened
as brightness blinded my sight...I had seen the invisible God!
My body turned into spirit and I needed not pray to the fairest angel...
to be behold that wonderful place that I had read about in the Bible.

Fill Us Again

These days we all are just a bit more wiery ,
Even on common ground we have become leary.
  Trust is much harder to come by  these days,
Losing our faith has made us lose our way.
  Kindness & compassion a thing of the past,
Because of this love and Joy can not last.
  Smiles and laughter a rare thing to see ,
How I miss the way it use to be.
  We have become helpless and tolerant to unjust,
As we watch our hopes and dreams turn to dust.
  Discouraging words is all I am hearing anymore,
A little kindness and support would help for sure.
  It's sad as I sit here and see how we have all changed,
What makes it worse is that we are the blame.
  How to fix all  this and get us heading straight,
There is a way but fear it might be to late.
  If only we would take more time to pray,
It wouldn't be long before we found  our way.
  Becoming cold and heartless is what I've always feared,
I pray for our Lord to take us all away from here.
  Fill our hearts with love and joy again ,
We will follow you Lord forever Amen.

The Wings of an Angel

The gentle breeze upon my face
As you pass by me with all your grace…

You’re my mother that I loved and treasured on earth
You protected and guided me from my birth…

You are no longer with me on this earthly plane
But I know you are here all the same…

The Angel's Mission

One warm and sunny afternoon,
GOD sent his young angel on a mission.
He said he must go down to planet earth,
And bring home his youngest son.
But, the angel replied, "LORD, I am not ready,
What if I make a mistake?
I don't think I can do this LORD,
What if I loose faith?".
The LORD replied, "I know you are ready,
I can see it in your heart.
You have enough faith one angel can handle,
And my mission you must start".
But the angel replied, "LORD, do you really think 
That I will make it down there?
There are soo many of your people,
Who will I know to bring up here?".
The LORD replied, "Do not worry little angel,
I will give you signs along the way. 
And when you reach the land,
You will know which one to take".
But the angel replied, "But what if I get lost LORD,
And I don't know which way to go?
Oh LORD, I am so afraid,
Do I really have to go?".
The Lord replied, "you will not get lost little angel,
Just follow what's in your heart. 
Do not be scared my little one,
For I will be with you in your heart".
But the angel replied, "what if my wings get broken,
And I can no longer fly?
How will I carry your new arrival,
Back with me through the sky?".
The LORD replied, "if this should happen to you,
Just call upon me and I will mend them.
Do not loose faith little angel,
You have all the strength within".
The angel replied,"what if I DO make it,
And your child does not want to come?
What if he fights and refuses?
THAN will my mission be done?".
The LORD replied, "NO, my little angel, 
My child is ready to come home. 
You see, we've already spoken,
He's asked me to bring him home.
He has told me he can no longer bare the pain,
And all his family is hurting.
He wants to be in peace now,
So you must GO NOW, AND HURRY!
I have already prepared his place,
And I have already blessed his soul. 
All you have to do little one,
Is go down, and bring him home".
The little angel looked up to GOD-
And with a smile upon his face, 
He replied, "I am ready now for your mission LORD,
It's now time for the next soul to take".

a warning leaving us in shambles and dismay.  We ask as parents why does god 
give and then take away?  

God, our hearts are broken, our bodies are beaten, our mind is in shock and 
confusion.  We ask our father in heaven, why is it that we have to pay for 
someone else penilty, for someone else retribution, for this is not a fair 
contribution.

My child of your children, for this is not a conviction.  Let your healing began for 
this was not because of your sin.  Your child joins me in heaven, the place of the 
forgiven. The place where wings are given.

For I am your child, for I know I was loved, the lord has chosen me from up 
above.  Don't cry mommy, don't cry daddy one day with out a maybe you will be 
able to hold your angel baby.

Iron Wings

gushing through, rushing in,
hearts will move above all sin,
you cannot see, you cannot fortell,
as it pushes you by force and sound,
whipping in, you whip around,
keeping your feet on solid ground,
by faith pointing from the direction it came,
practicing balance through storm and rain,
it takes you here, it takes you there,
like a trap it pulls you to its snare,
you see, you hide, but then come face to face,
you find the mask behind the face,
you stand in the middle, he takes you there,
this heart will pierce its hardened stare,
he sends you angels to guard and fight,
to protect you with his strength and might,
these warriors stand guard, and with armor can withstand,
they block its force with their awesome wingspan,
with beauty and love, you see these gentle wings spread,
with feathers made of iron they protect love instead,
as the storms force rushes in, its deceived by its look,
for these wings of beauty cannot be shook,
as it approaches full force, it thinks it can win,
it looks weak from a distance as it rushes in,
but as it draws near, it picks up its pace,
the force can't pull away from the speed of its race,
it believes it can conquer its weakened prey,
until drawn in too close, it cannot run away,
methodically planned to tear this house down,
but it cannot see into this holy ground,
its focus, its charging with only one eye to see,
until it steps in too close, the iron breaks its debree,
love and honor stand strong, beat at its own game,
for the righteous overcome its winds and its rains,
it captures the heart and puts it back into place,
praising him in worship as you sit through these rains,
know your protection, stand with its ground,
speak it in, and then speak it out,
confirm with the heart, his words are alive,
allowing the spirit to fill and then rise,
the battleground shakes, these chains break and fall,
with the words of his spirit, winds whispering call.

The Rose

bullets, and hearts
lifeless bodies piled in carts
a lonlely mortition chewing over sweet tarts,
ironic, bitter sweet
blood can boil if you can bring the heat
and the dead can move, provided with a heart beat
black roses on my grave
mourn my loss on this day
blood dripping from my heart every which way
injured, batterd, buised and tattered 
you destroyed it all like it never even mattered 
falling roses in the sky
drops of blood spatter my eye
i told you i would love you until i die
my word is true, i was nobody until i found you
but you dont love me do you
bloody petals on the floor
you say nothing because you love me no more 
heart beat stops
face flops
knees weak and my body drops
exctacsy to heartbreak 
fearless too forsake
death is welcome but never comes
your the woman to seduce, but never succumbs 
to entrap but never loves 
it makes no sence like poisonous doves
looks to thrill 
designed to kill 
you say that you wont but i know that you will
your heart constricts mine till it lays still
your auburn eyes can paralyze
your intoxicating presence washes over me like the tides 
lips so beautiful, do they speak nothing but lies?
so seductive you hold my heart as it dies
cunning and deceptive crocodile tears instigate angel cries 
the personification of beauty 
the face of an angel 
the heart of the devil
your siren song, sang to my heart sweet and long 
draws me in, i cant resist for it is too strong
i want you to love me
to breath me
im writhing 
and seething 
seeking
and weeping
thinking as im dreaming
on what my dependence on you is meaning
i want to hate you but your part of my being
and now i am seeing
that i must catch the falling rose in the wind
present it to you, and steal your heart then
The blood on the petals are angel tears
for the fallen angel has realised her fears
she has fallen for a mortal 
a boy
who was nothing more than a toy
being played to her ploy
and she takes this defeat with joy
the blackest heart has been turned pure
fallen angel fell for my lure 
my arrow aimed at her heart oh so sure
and she is mine.... forever more

To have and have lost

To have and to have lost is the ultimate pain, 
Knowing that your life will never be the same again. 
That one little missing piece of your jigsaw called life, 
Questions as to what you did to deserve this strife.
Another angel for heaven above 
Empty arms but still the love. 
Never far from your mind 
If only life wasn’t so unkind. 
Little angel I love you so 
Fresh in my thoughts wherever I go.

Shadows in the Dark

Shadows in the dark are now what I see Murky pictures of the loved ones no more with me I stare at them with a trembling heavy heart For we are now millions of light years apart Shadows line up as an army of ghosts at my door Asking me to exit the door without the hurt which I once bore Grappling with the painful thoughts, I take a step forward Towards my loved ones, and never look backward Ah! The reflections disappeared with the break of the dawn I Ran around to find them with a mind so bogged down Alas! I fell off from my bed, it was a dream insane I shouted,'Hold on! I am feeling no more inane' For they showed me glowing light even in the dark Now I can find a way no matter how loud is the life's bark Shadows in the Dark will always show me the light To fulfill zillion dreams and win life's every fight

hell

from hell 
pain hammers
pounding in the head
casting dark shadows
steel cold deep

dressed in black
to the crossroads
walking in the dark valley
eyes lead heavy
waterfalls 
aches in the soul

in a forsaken place
secluded reserved
in pain 
piercing pounds
for aching guests
in no man's land
a zombie
between the living
and dead

in silent 
screaming words
a desert
of barren emptiness 
echoes comes alive
loathing

craving the soul 
is imprisonment
taking a walk 
through the mind
pulling back
 the cobwebs

without escape
confused bends 
in shapes
now the thunder roars
distorted visions
twisted feelings
emotions swells

cursed in the deep
the spirit
lightning strikes
power within 
the brain
in dark pain
i yield unto 
the light

the soul speaks
with voices 
of the spirits
thundering 
in the mountains
as god sent 
my guardian

recovers the heart
tainted with love
stronger in fighting
silken feelings 
i now stand 
at the crossroads

a gladiator
of light
i survived 
a battle 
in hell

My Friend, Faith

Everyone needs someone to keep them going strong,

Everyone needs hope to keep them pushing on,

A simple promise that everything will fall into place,

My lifelong friend rightfully named Fatih,

Shes always by my side even though she cant be seen,

There through the highs, lows and all in between,

The only way to avoid her is by not believing,

Putting all your heart in Faith is the path to acheiving.

Goodbye My Old Friend

you were there the day I was born
you sewed my clothes and spanked me when I needed it 
I wasn' t ready but you said it's ok your only a phone call away
so I moved away thinking it would be ok
then I got the call that you past away
I'm mad as he++ 
that much you can tell
I want to ask why you didn't say goodbye
was it because you didn't want me to cry
I'm going home but you will be gone
I think you went on
to make a home with a room just for me
you know it wouldn't be long before I come along
I didn't know I had brain cancer at the time you left me
I sit here and cry and hope it will not be long before I can come home
and join you again in heaven and sit by the fire then I know that is where I belong

IT WAS MY RESURRECTION TOO: (part 2) just sit on it

Mary Magdeline and Mary the mother of Jesus the Christ
went to the tomb was Jesus was laid after the sacrifice
it was a risky venture but they felt a powerful need
to go forth to give Jesus a proper burial with God-speed

the Roman soldiers were standing about to guard the grave site
so that none could steal the body of Jesus in the still of the night
but when both Marys reached the tomb they saw that the stone had been rolled away
and sitting upon it was an Angel of the Lord and to them It did say
wearing raiment white as snow It said to them "to have no fear"
for the One you seek has arisen and His body is no longer here

no longer was Jesus in that tomb which was His enemies' place of defeat
no stone blocking the entrance that would have made His destruction complete
Jesus would not be shut in nor His people to be shut out
an Angel of the Lord sitting on that stone which had cried out

in order to demonstrate dominion over anything in this life
you need to just sit on it and then claim it in the name of Christ
to eradicate the pain, to exterminate the anger, to eliminate the bitterness
to extinguish the hate we need to sit on it in the name of righteousness
so put all those negative things in life under your feet
dominion over all of it the next phase to go out and meet

it was my resurrection too on that day when Jesus arose
it was my resurrection too on that day it was Him I chose
His resurrection power now resides inside of me
His resurrection power has secured my destiny
arisen from the dead and now sitting at the right hand of God
dominion over everything with a righteousness of heart

God rolling away the stones in my life that have tried to hinder and defeat
God rolling away the obstacles in preparation for my journey to be complete
it was my resurrection too, a new life I have been given
it was my resurrection too and by the power of His blood I'm now driven
God rolling away the stones and all those negative things in my life
just sitting on them with dominion and the blessings of my Lord Jesus Christ

An Endless Morrow

As the end draws near
Due to the war of the beast
From the sky falls an endless tear
As the arrow falls from the east

Ripples form on the water surface
As our wings take flight
The Earth resurfaces
As the sun shines bright

Where would we fall?
Hero of the morrow
Who should answer the call?
As the world drowns in sorrow

We are loved my friend
Blessed by Gaia herself
With this love she descends
We must prepare ourselves 

Our wish for tomorrow will shatter our soul
As we watch the world crumble down below
The world itself has given up on her goals
This is our fate we sadly know

The ripples in the water is tainted with blood
Gone are the trees she loves
Her sorrow covers us with a great flood
Her warning of what happens when push turns into shove

Our dreams are gone
Our pride is no more
The end has already been drawn
By the beast and their war

With this she offers a silent plea
To preserve the beauty we all see
She asks us to end her misery
She asks us to make her free

To the green we all once knew
To the blue that calms the heart
To the birds that once flew
With this mission we depart

The wind shall speak of our return
For the morrow is filled with a pact
In our hearts a passion will burn
As we begin to act

To become the blue that quenches the sky
The Earth will once again foster a life
Shall we become the hero of the rye?
With this we end the war and its strife

Heaven awaits the faithful departed
Our eternal slumber shall become uncharted

To my friend, Arthur

I’d like to poke Arthur now
You said you were so dark
That you lie on the floor twisted
From yourself hurting you
Why my friend?
Why would you want to hurt yourself
When he is the last person you want to hurt?
I wonder when you are beginning to see what
We all see you
A kind person, funny, full of laughter and full of light
Yes you do have your dark edge
But that is an allowance
We have to have room to breathe
To be on our dark side
On your days
But other than that your main person is who you are 
Not your dark side
That is causing you unhappiness
Light drowns out darkness
Haven’t you noticed? 
When you turn on the light 
What happened?
The room is full of light
Just like our image
We have to turn on the light
To really see who we are
Can’t see you in darkness, can ya?
Anyway, just want to let you know
What you haven’t already known
You will thank you for being a good guidepost
Instead of a punchbag
You know your body is going to rebel
And then you will have a mess to deal with
Haha anyway be gentle on yourself
Good old friend
I can say you are old
Because you are not young enough not to know better
Soo no more of that trash
It does not belong in you
It belongs on the curb

The Prince of Life Has Risen

The Prince of Life Has Risen The prince of darkness Had the Savior’s tomb sealed. One hundred guards stationed all about, But a great earthquake all revealed. A heavenly angel clothed with bright beams Of God’s glory illuminating his pathway. The guards shook with great fear; The hosts of darkness fled away. This angel moved the stone, As though it were a pebble. He called to Christ, “Son of God come forth.” The earth shook, lightening and thunder to assemble. Christ came forth from the grave With the tread of a conqueror; Brightness lit the end of the night; Roman guards fainted, each like a toy warrior. The Prince of Life Has Risen; An earthquake witnessed the moment. Over sin He triumphed And over every mortal torment. Satan thought he’d triumphed, As Christ lay asleep in His grave, But when He arose on Sunday morning, Satan knew this kingdom he couldn’t save. He knows he must finally die And that’s why Satan wants revenge. The destruction of as many as he can— God the Father to avenge. The Prince of Life Has Risen And will destroy Satan in the end. So choose not the darkness, But the glory that our Prince of Life does send. Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2008-2012 Featured in Easter Poem’s Book published 2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

Anothers Inspiration

Always stepping in the shadows,
Hiding inner fear thinking
If only to walk in ones own light
How bright freedom seen
Only in the distance
One road one journey
But only a breath of life exists
If fear took the back ground
And courage stood proud
Only me hiding behind 
Frightened to break free

Sometimes is all one needs
A refill of self confidence
A injection of inspiration
Magic fills a pen of another's
Wise ink

SOS part 3: Priceless Treasure

Ohhh…see right through my pain – regret & shame slits me like a knife, shaking 
in the hands of a cutter – I’m trying to look on the brighter side of life, but I 
am blind and I am feeling left behind…ooh I’m trying to leave behind the past if 
you don’t mind
Shame embraced me, never leaving my presence – I’ve been driven insane by 
Depression and Anxiety…I’ve lived through so much stress and distress, yet 
I’m still surviving & I’m still thriving to be positive and to have a happier frame 
of mind (someday, I won’t be blind…I’ll be shimmering anew like priceless 
treasure – God has given me His miracles and talents of plenty…to me & you, 
He has been so kind)

Soar in the ebony sky with me, darling child of His…we’re having a lot of fun
Understand that you and I will fly and sing in unison
I saw your velvet wings take flight and I will never forget that moment
Come on, come on – show me the way that we should go, so that we will be 
forever content 
Isolated by the world and its chaos and commotions
Dare to wonder why we are considered the lights of the world? How can we 
wash away our waves of emotions?
Easy answer – I can tell by your echoing empathy that you are God’s Faithful 
Child and YOU are overflowing with bliss and hopefulness – I love your 
splendid, flawless qualities that has been passed down to you by the Lord of 
Accord Himself! I can’t express my utter happiness and satisfaction right this 
second, but please – be by my side, angel that embraces fervor-flourishing 
flight – you are such a sundrenched sight…shining bright with all of its might 
tonight 

Save me – I used to have suicidal ideations in my mind…watch over me, Lord of 
Accord…I can’t find the light in goodbye, so let me say before I go – I love you 
so, friend of mine – let me unwind for a little while and give me some space if 
you can be so kind…sit with me on the ground…I’ve been feeling lonely and lost 
in a multitude
Ohhh…see right through my pain – regret & shame slits me like a knife, shaking 
in the hands of a cutter – I’m trying to look on the brighter side of life, but I 
am blind and I am feeling left behind…ooh I’m trying to leave behind the past if 
you don’t mind – for the meantime, I’m gravity-bound; however, I’m trying to 
maintain the attitude of gratitude
Shame embraced me, never leaving my presence – I’ve been driven insane by 
Depression and Anxiety…I’ve lived through so much stress and distress, yet 
I’m still surviving & I’m still thriving to be positive and to have a happier frame 
of mind (someday, I will be priceless treasure, destined to be found – I don’t 
want to ever feel ashamed and nude)

Forthcoming

I saw an Angel with golden silver wings.
My ears tingled from her voice as she sings.
Adorned in gown of pastel green with golden hair,
Delightful music played, as my soul had no care.

Between her lyrics she sat ever so still.
Though interludes of nature did humbly fill,
Creatures of nature captured the beauty she expelled.
Their communication showered the quiet, as I exhaled.

This Angel said no words though spoke so clear.
With a melodious voice she concluded all fear.
Let not you heart be troubled or even soul lost.
For soon he will be coming he gave over the cost.

Forget what mortals’ say; that they know of his time.
For theirs is temptation, to lure thou into crime.
No man whether Holy or evil shall ever know his time of coming.
Though always remember, his return is truly forthcoming.

The beauty of an Angel

It is the storm that we brave when there is no sight to see. 
But that of your beauty that I strive for when I live this life in despair. 
It is there my heart soars is where the eagle is. 
Way up yonder in the blue skies of heavens grace. 
There my soul laids deep in a love of wonders and maze. 
That of an angel to which darkens my door steps. 
Not with death does she bring but that of my heart she holds there. 
It is with love I have lost myself as I search to find again. 
But there you shine a light brighter then the moon itself. 
As I see a star shine through them cloudy days. 
Just knowing you are there and we share the greatest thing of all. 
And that is the love of two hearts desire. 
That it is there I breathe the air of my breath as my love is that of an undying one. 
As you squeeze my heart to which you hold and keeps me pushing for more. 
As I find myself loving you more with the words that cut so deeply. 
It is there it bleeds for you and the way you care for one. 
That it isn't just your beauty I crave but that of your love I so desire to have. 
That of an angel with so much love that I have fallen to one knee and prayed. 
For God to give my heart with sweet love of devotion and you never to leave my side until 
our dyeing day. 
For there you have my heart, so be careful not to squeeze too hard. 
Because it is fragile and doesn't take much to shatter. 
As I can just feel your hands laid upon my chest as every beat it feels you are there. 
With great love I send a kiss to you that it may hit you square on the lips. 
But with that of a gentle but soft touch it carries a love so true and dear.
For it is there my world is bright and snow lay. 
As I have found a snow angel of heaven best but with love and beauty she portrays.

Whispers of Light

I felt nothing spectacular,
As I entered the cathedral,
I saw nothing supernatural, 
Nothing good and nothing evil.

Then, as if my eyes were opened,
I noticed angels—six in all,
Standing still as if frozen,
Each measuring twenty feet tall.

Their appearance was like glass,
Their backs arched against beams,
They watched over our mass,
It felt like a waking dream.

Then, a thought leaped in my mind,
If His messengers inspire such awe in me,
How will I feel when my life is resigned,
And I stand in the presence of God The Almighty?

Sometimes

I feel like I just left past shadows runaway
Before I grow taller in more ways that my soul needs
I first saw the future's mirror and sweet dreams that still feeds
My wick heart on hope's table that sends me faraway...

It seems to me that rock called sun is alive
Bringing vibes for those poor people who always pray
Without knowing that a stupid wish worth a life
Who goes into a world of forgiveness and happiness, where every angel lays...

My conscience is bleeding and I hear the death's crazy lyrics
My life is a slide show now and my only friend is the misery
When I say faith I hope to see innocence's dynasty
The Christians say I need Jesus touch in my world's roots...

I make mistakes like everyone, but I don't wish perfection
I only need God's angel for protection and affection
Sometimes I miss childhood with his naivety
And regret I'm a beginner is this world full of insanity...

Savior

Why did you look through me?
I scream your name as I run towards you
My hands reaching out for you wanting
To touch you but I see you fly away from me
It hurts to see you run from me
The more I try to catch up 
To you the more you disappear out of my sight
Are you ashamed of me?
I know I’m dirty 
I know I’m filthy
Please, come after me 
Please, give me something to fight for
I scream once more but this time not about me
But for you to save me and ask for forgiveness
A bright light flashed and saw the angel gone and I 
Fall to my knees tears filling my eyes my body trembling
I guess I’m to lost 
I look around as I hear someone say my name
I see a different angel in front of me, but he has no wings
But he’s presence is over-whelming as he spoke 
“I come to save you my child” 
I fight more tears back wondering if this was a dream
“I am no dream, I will never run from you, you were chasing the 
Of angel of light” 
He kneeled to me and I saw myself in his eyes,
And I knew he was waiting for me, 
And I repeat the words in my mind “I will never run from you”
And I fall forward and wrap myself in my savior’s presence.

Sealed for Salvation

Sealed for Salvation [Prayer] 4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: “You are just in these judgments, O Holy One, you who are and who were; 6 for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.” 7 And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.” Rev 16:4-7 NIV May your hand be ready to help me. I long for your salvation, O Lord. Let me live that I may praise you, And live each day by your word. May my tongue sing your praises toward heaven. May my heart hold dear your love laws; May your hand forever help me; Please close temptation’s doors. When the seven angels leave your temple in heaven With God’s bowls of wrath in their hands, May I be covered with your sealing, As, with you alone, can I stand. May I be taken to heaven, Where your city of gold waits prepared For those who’ve forsaken this world And all on the altar have bared. I long daily for your salvation. It is time for your end as Judge; To destroy the proud and haughty, Who from their wickedness refuse to budge. The faithless I view with loathing— Deliver me according to your grace. For I have chosen to worship you, And long to look into your face. You are my Judge and my Jury; You are my Savior divine. I surrender my all to you daily— My spirit with yours entwine. I thank you I am Sealed For Salvation For that’s something only you can do. I depend solely upon your grace and mercy, And long for your Second Coming too!

Angels

her smile warmed his heart. her touch healed his broken soul. 
happiness was all he felt, her heart his ultimate goal.
 but sadly she never seen him for what he truly was,
a fallen angel walking with broken wings. 
with each touch, each glimpse,
 each smell of her always made his aching heart sing.
 they shared their stories, the good and the bad. 
but eventually his love for her began to drive him mad.
 why couldn't she him for what he truly was? 
why couldn't she return his simple gesture of love?
 how he longed to hear the sweet words pour from her mouth.
a simple 'i love you' would be just enough.
day after day he sat there, just admiring her for all she was,
 enjoying every second that he got to spend with his destined love. 
his heart ached his soul quaked all just to be in her presence. 
to hold her, feel her, kiss her, inhaling her wonderful essence.
 but they day finally drew near... the day he had constantly feared.
 to her side he went and stayed never once leaving.
 the hospital was cold and alone only the two of them breathing.
 tears streamed down his face as he held her weakening hand. 
he knew that it would come to this, he began to understand. 
in her last moments she opened her eyes, and seen his real form.
 a smile swept across her face and his heart was suddenly warm.
 with her last few breaths she spoke," you're my angel aren't you?"
 he nodded and as she began to choke. " you're so beautiful... thank you." 
he held back his tears as she closed her eyes whispering a simple...
 "I love You..."

Blue Bird

Blue Bird

All alone inside of my magical little paradise called my mind is an peaceful and quiet, the sun is like a gentle kiss on the cheek, and the people are just so warm and friendly but watch out because if you open your eyes everything you once knew will be gone. This magical little realm has an bloody little twist to it. The sun that was once as comforting as an warm blanket was in fact the glistening moon and the empty black sky, and the people are now all blood thirsty monsters that are no longer affected by the sun light are now out for blood.

I run to escape the sickening but yet oh so enticing scent of blood and failure, I run to escape the screams of those who's lives were cut just too short, and I run to escape the sight of the undead, blood thirsty zombies who are on the hunt for others to join their group. I'm running, running to safety and security but all the time there's nothing but pit falls and traps. I'm running and success isn't that far away but just then I see prince charming I stop and become distracted by his promising words but just then he too becomes a monster. I scream and try to run but I just can't you trap me in fire and I can't escape. 

My mind goes numb, I can feel the darkness further enclose around me, my mind goes blank, and I forget about everything. On the inside I'm screaming, fighting, kicking to get away but on the outside I'm a love sick puppy. I know I'm stronger than this but there's something about you that I just can't get over. Just as the darkness seems to grow closer an light appears and an blue bird fights off my nightmare monster and takes me back to my snowy paradise where I'm safe and at peace and I continue my lonely dark and cold path to my brightly lite future with the little blue bird by my side reminding me that I am and will forever be loved by both my family, people who actually care about me, and god.

Snow Angel

Snow Angel in white,
She can never fly,
She can only lay,
still like a squished bug,
paralyzed being.

She's bewildered,
Then why exist?

Saved By Wings

I lied in my bed, awaiting an angel to take me far away
It happened; I finally lost everything I held dear to me
The rose of love died and wilted away in my frail hands
I had given up on a future that I could see being happy

Until a small dove, so carefree and pure came before me
Kind and warm-hearted, I found someone to call a compantion
He taught me to be myself and let me smile once again
I thanked him and I learned once again what trust was

The angel I know evolved from the kind little dove I met
He is someone I hold so close to me and I know is pure
I was reborn once I learned of the feelings I felt for him
He did not laugh or taunt me, but he smiled in acceptance

Yin and Yang are the way my past and present are seen now
One dark and horrid while the other is filled with light
I was so alone, feeling betrayed and unknown to anyone
But now I am content and cared for once again; thank you

My angel.

Dedicated to someone who saved me from a darker time in life.

It May Just Be Jesus Without His Crown



This is for all the angels walking this earth
there for us when we die and when we give birth.
You know their an angel by looking into their souls
you see running rivers of Jesus's sparkling gold.

The old man laying in the gutter crying for his family
helped up and cleaned up fed a warm meal that is what the angels see.
A mother and child just walking the streets with no where to go
an angel of mercy takes them by the hand and finds them a home.

These angels don't show their wings
but you can hear them sing.
Just go where people are in such need
that is where the angels go at lightening speed.

The next time you are tempted to put someone down
they may be Jesus without the thorny crown.
Be careful how you judge or what you might say
Angels on earth will pass you by when you need them one day.

Remember the homeless the hungry,the poor and the lost
then Remember Jesus up on that cross.
He didn't do it just for the healthy and rich
Jesus did it for the mercy of all men if your soul He finds fit.

Christmas Under the Sky

I watch the teary, misty rain
as the torrents of wind
move against the grey blackness
Stroking my pet cat
with her indistinct, blurry
message that's always tuned into
the joyful, sounding music of the universe

My heart yearning for a better love life
I think about the loves gone by
Memories of all I loved coming back to me
The undying love for my mother
sick and frightened
I exchange the calming, nurturing lilies
in her garden

Golden rhythms bring me peace within
the softness of the morning hours brings
an intense love and spirit of the giving season
hopefully more of kindness and unconditional
love than of material burdens and manipulations
I feel happiness suddenly - seeing the
blues in the greys that turn angelic white
understanding the message of life

Soothing and unexpected excitements
dreams of success in all the
fragments of being bringing together
the whole, inspired miracle
the magic and enchantment
Letting go of the stress
and going with the flowing light and love
bringing peace to calamity
of my soul and restoring it to
everything beautiful

Whispers of Light

In the dark, silent forest,
there lies a wooden chest,
goodness and divine light
it carries;
the darkness from Pandora's box,
presumed to be the fox,
and us the sheep, 
has less time to exist, as we fellowship
with the Divine Voice,
which is enveloped by the Divine Light!

When An Angel Cries

When an Angel does cry
There is no blue in the sky
The clouds all hover
Exposing a pale gray cover
A sense of sadness fills the air
Somewhere is an Angel in despair

A call to all Angels from near and far
Calling all Angels, wherever they are
Gather together at the pearly gates
That’s where an Angel in despair waits
Spread your wings and hold this Angel near
All of the Angels fly together to dry each tear

Within the power of uplifting prayer
The crying Angel is no longer in despair
With the gathering of Angels to help a loved one
The gray clouds have now gone and uncovered the sun
Peace falls from the Heaven’s and gray skies are now blue
The Angels are now smiling and watching over you

Remember, when an Angel cries
And you see gray skies
Don’t be sad or feel despair
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
The Angels will hear you and their work will be done
Before you know it, you will again see the sun

Rainment Of Heaven

The sun cascaded upon that emrald city,
as I saw a heaven that was so pretty.
I envisioned Jesus sitting on his throne,
the path that led to him was of ruby and stone.
I saw his face for the very first time,
as the angels rang bells with an angelic chime.
His face was everything I'd imagined it to be,
so kind and gentle and full of grace.
I knelt down before him to worship his name,
I felt the power of his glory I so boldly exclaimed.
The skies in the heavens were pastel in color,
like the most dazzeling scene, a scene like no other.
I never before whitnessed a love like this,
the very core of my soul I experienced nothing but bliss.
With angelic music that filled the air,
I stopped in awe and had to stare.
Their wings were pure and white as snow,
as their face aluminated a heavenly glow.
I saw my mother who had passed away,
just as I remembered her when we used to pray.
My tears streamed down like rain on my face,
the bond still between us that time did not erase.
The lord had blessed me as my heart filled with grace,
so thankful to live here in this magnificant place.

Right

"I heard an angel speak last night and he said "write" 
                                    Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I heard an angel speak and he said write
I wasn’t sure just what I heard
Did he utter just one word
I sat and pondered there throughout the night

The thought of course occurred
Did he really say a word
And just what did he mean when he said write
Did he mean get out my pen
Put down my thoughts right then
Or did he mean to point me to his right

For right there on the ground
Was a tombstone I now found
The name upon the tombstone was my own
I knelt there at his feet
And when our eyes did meet
I knew he meant it’s time that I atone

So still there on my knees
I asked the angel – please
To help me change my life that very night
This time I’m sure I heard
Again that single word
I heard an angel speak and he said “right”

Do You Want To Know the Future

Do You Want To Know the Future? “ 4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: “You are just in these judgments, O Holy One, you who are and who were; 6 for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.” 7 And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.” Rev 16:4-7 NIV Do you want to know the future? It will follow the history of the past. History does repeat itself And this adage continues to last. The future for some will be difficult And for others their ‘fait accompli’. It will depend upon your alliance And whether with God’s truth you agree. The world won’t last forever, And Christ will come in the clouds To give the faithful minority immortality; His loyal subjects to enshroud. Before this marvelous final event There will be a time of trouble. Many Christians murdered as heretics And false worship minds to baffle. There’ll be a one world religion Not the purpose of church and state. Something the Founding Fathers Sailed from Europe to abate. Folk will either choose allegiance Or stand for truth and with God alone. This one world religion, Will place Lucifer on its throne. Worship has always been the issue; It began in heaven's war above. When Satan and one third of the angels Were driven from God’s throne and His love. Satan still desires to be worshiped And will do so through this power. Should you choose this congregation Life will be a mixture of sweet and bitter. Yes, you’ll be able to trade But you’ll have sold your soul. For you’ll have no freedom of worship And your conscience under men’s control. Do you really want to know the future? God’s justice will be finally crowned By the seven last plagues of Revelation For those this religion has cunningly earthbound.

Fallen Angels

I know that there are fallen Angels.... I even met a few...Sometimes they talk and walk and even act like you.... They always appear at just the right time... and when they go back home you only want to cry....But a fallen Angel always has to rise again and even though they love you they really miss there wings ....Because we are so blinded there wings are left unseen.....Now  Your left behind to endure all the hurt of when your favorite Angel was covered up with dirt...But before they go they leave you memories...... That you will always cherish until the day you meet.....

A Heart Moans, Promises Arrive

A Heart Moans, Promises Arrive

The heart's deepest moans are heard 
          on a victoriously high throne!
Swords, Scepters and Blades have castles made,
     all mercy is not lost when a poet 
          lays bear his gentle soul
      with hope and love so freely shown! 
The pen sings, the mighty sword has been overthrown!
          gentle winds are forever blown
Cries for justice, love and gentle mercies ring
 bells in high clouds gracing earthly scenes
          blasting happiness into this world!

Gabriel blow that promised horn loud
  stir the hearts and souls in every crowd
  let the children learn to love right;
defend spirit with strength and Godly might
      sending evil on a headlong flight
     no longer to ever plague this world
  opened hearts rule fiercely day and night!

Our hearts seek to forever, forever unite!
Light slays blindness, mankind regains blessed sight!

Robert Lindley, 09/21/ 1990

I replied with verses from this write to another fine poet
 this morn. Could not remember it all but that small part 
so I went digging in my stash and finally found it.
Presented exactly as it was written but I wanted to do

have thought it a finished piece back then since I signed

BELIEVE

The Angels have not forsaken mankind, mankind has forgotten them.

Many souls have let in the evil of greed, of hate take over their hearts.

Closing out the light.

Wandering in the darkness.

If you listen you can hear the songs of the Angels in the wind.

If you open your eyes you can see them among the clouds.

They are with us, their forms sometimes a flashing shadow.

Yet we don't take notice.

We can hear their whispers.

Yet so many forget to listen.

Re-open your hearts.

Re-open your mind.

Revel in the warmth, as peace, love travels through your being.

Feel the love of acceptance within their embrace.

Accept their advice.

Heed their warnings.

Ask the questions and soon a knowing will be felt.

For here they stay.

They watch.

They listen.

They protect.

Let the Angels stop their waiting.

Call to them.

Invite them into your heart.

Fears that lives within will be diminished.

Just BELIEVE.

Journey Girl

She floats like a spirit on a journey wild
She has been through many a trial
She's never lost hope when the chips were down
Always looking for the golden crown
Evolving soul in a world so dark
She finds the light , looking for the spark
So down to earth, yet so out of reach
In a world with little substance and belief
In the things that matter to this Angel in flight
Sorting through what's wrong and right
She's no stranger to the strongholds of the other side
And at times she wants to hide
But this floating Angel won't give into the fear
Because a Higher power draws her near
Every time she falls to the ground
In her heart she hears the sound
Of his voice elevating her to the place she is destined to be
When you look at her , you would say she's no different than you and me
But inside she is dying to be free
And because her heart is in the right place
God has saved her with his grace
One can only imagine wher she'll go from here
Faith based hope dries her tears
So she keeps searching as He refines her so
This floating spirit will never let go
Of her dream to change the world and do what's right
She has the battle scars on her soul that proves she's won the fight...She's Journey Girl

DEMONS and ANGELS - The Battle

Darkness,
Demons 
Everywhere. 

Lightness, 
Angels 
in the square. 

The battle begins. 
The angels sit still. 
The demons swoop down, 
Go in for the kill.

They scream and squawk. 
Their coming near. 
The angels sit still. 
Without any fear. 

The demons dive down. 
Their aim is exact.
They reach the angels,
and make contact

Then sparks fly and flames roar..
around the angels,
they made their score.

Then the angels step out of the fire and flames, 
Not a hair on there head has been rearranged.

They lift up their wings. 
A soft wind begins to blow. 
Then a beautiful light from within them 
Begins to glow.

The demons are blinded by this beautiful light.
Their body’s are melting they can’t put up a fight.

The angels are floating and watching them fall 
Now they are teaching us all..

When evil is confronted from the light that’s within 
It will outshine it, cause LOVE makes us win.

Battle Waged Within

Every night, as she laid herself to sleep
Images of demons and angels, in her head, did creep
The war of good and evil, and everything in between
Transpired all around her, though, their physical forms were unseen
Am I going crazy? She, often, thought to herself
You’re the only one in here; all alone by yourself
Every time, it was always the same
First, came the demons who cried out her name
Their hideous faces and blood red eyes
Their ridicule and torment; she greatly despised
Was she really so bad and morally wrong?
She didn’t think hell was where she belonged
She tried to close her eyes and wish them away
She heard their taunting whispers to, “Come out and play.”
She knew the routine and, yet, it still scared her to the core
She knew that the angels are who to ask for
She called up to Heaven and emerged a bright light
The presence of an angel, what a marvelous sight!
The peace overcame her and she continued to pray
She asked for understanding of why things are this way
“It’s the battle for your soul,” came the reply
“They will always fight against you, or at least, always try.”
“The battle rages on, though, it remains unseen.”
“You have to choose a side and not live in between.”
Obviously, the right decision is reaching salvation
How will she deny giving into temptations?
We all know that battle; the one waged within 
We all face a choice; which side will win

Silent Whispers

Silent whispers scatter all round me 
Crowding me in making it hard to breathe 
Making me choke on all of the sin that I have committed
Making me weak 
making me come down to my knees
Praying in my head “OH GOD OH GOD PLEASE SPARE ME”
Save me from all of this agony 
Maybe I don’t deserve it because I brought it to myself 
but I was a child I didn't know the out come could be so persist 
Playing with fire was fun until I got burned 
And no I may not have any scars or buries 
But the thing that I had to see was everything crashing and crumbing in to ruins
Then it just blow away like the fire I use to lite the candle Thinking that it would bring light
But it when out and I was too deep to know my surrounding
Only thing that was there was darkness surrounding me in to the point where It took my breath
One two three I drop down to my knees 
Four five six the truth is sickening 
Seven eight nine dose hate and love have a thin line
Ten Is this the beginning or the end
And why am I not begging
I see the light but I don't come near
Because in the darkness I can see clear
But I am not sure if this is where I belong
Curious but yet afraid I still pursued
Just to get caught up by my demons who I thought we friend although I  assumed
See that's the only thing that can be tricky about the darkness
to fall in the hands of the enemy
without having knowledge 
But do I want to live if it has come to this
Not trusting my self
Not knowing the difference between the light and dark
Or maybe I know the difference but I have already tasted the bitter sweet taste of the dark
But I don't realize the difference any more making me question if the every was a separation
Are they one in the same?
because they both have the power to over come you
But you have to realize is the loss worth the gain
But heaven forbids for you to go out on your own
Because that candle that you hold so tight and dare to keep you away from the darkness
 can always go out by a sweet silent whisper

Grace of angel

Wings of highest angel
glide smooth and lightly
reveals goodness of peaceful touch
whisper upon skin slightly

I feel the evil melt away
so gently it leaves
grace sets upon my breast
like a faint summer breeze

Happiness never felt afore
in this life none to compare
raw and naked love
so amazing 
a token so rare

Hard to obtain,
maybe how it was to be
floating in and out
able to grasp a mystery

Some able to reach farther
than others
hands outstretched
blesse the gift of art
drawing the far fetched

Wings of an angel
Glide smooth and lightly
Everyday I pray
Free my melancholy

Set upon the horizon
i see her touch others
am I undeserving
crying under my covers

Touch me too my angel
see my one wish come true
watch over my children
i shall forever be true

The Sheppard

A thunder, rolling, pitches and growls.
The Sheppard, leading, his sheep and fowls.
A precarious steep, crosses and twists;
Escape and evasion, a hunter's grip.

Closer and closer, clouds do come.
The rain and sleet, the coming undone.
Awakening and edgy, the wolf howls.
The bark, the hackles, a fright in the fowls.

Stretching and moving, The Sheppard prepares.
Warming and coughing, ready affairs.

As rain arrives, at first as a mist.
The wind picks up, as if in a fit.
Seizing his flock, his staff, and girth;
Ready for worship, ready for birth. 

The boom, the splash, darkness arrives. 
The sheep, the fowls, those are his lives. 
Thrashing and stabbing, a predator is felled. 
Retreating and taunting, they have his smell.

Virtues of cardinal, those are his truth. 
Protection, survival, that is his ruse.

The Anthem of Audrey and Alice

A day that passed a time ago amongst the glory of all mankind 
lived an angel thy Audrey from Athens who's heart was in twined, 
Oh indeed in a time of the finest of kings, and the duchess and queens, 
For Audrey to love in the likes of she, indeed in all was not to be, 
For Audrey of Athens who cried for one's love, to hold and to cherish,    
Whom she found in the likes of Alice of Abington, oh indeed such a merit, 
But who's to dwell on such the dungeons of this timely parade? 
For one such as Audrey to hide away her mask in this gathering of days, 
Oh such a yearning cries out of her heart for the one she holds so dear, 
To whisper the songs of love in Alice's ear where no one can hear, 
To taste the tingle in one's lips, and the breath of curious wonder, 
As bare as they are the two become one under the growling gods of thunder, 
How can one such as Audrey of Athens pronounce to the world, 
That it is true love in which was found, indeed in the likes of another girl, 
In the heart of Alice from Abington whom she cries for till death, 
As now the lonely angel from Abington waits still sitting on her lover's front steps.

We Needed you and You were there

We Needed you and You were there 
 
We cried the tears You wipe them away 

We were confused and You cleared our hearts

We were afraid and You came right back for us

And held us up and gave us strength 
 
And showed us how You love us
 
You gave us strength to stand against evil

To face the world  in our LIFE with You

You put us up in the light from the dark

So high that we could almost see eternity

You showed us why we need You 
 
We can not believe it's really You

We can not believe it's really true

We needed you  and you were always there
We will never leave You Lord

Because we finally found the One who really cares

You help us  when were wary

When we are lost  You protect us 

You gave us hope  when we were at the end

You turned our lives  back into truth again

You even call us brother and sister

We needed You and You were there  
Thank you Lord for being there
We are now there for You 
AMEN!!

Forever missing you

Since you been gone I been all alone. The dreams we talked about I’m pursuing them all on my own. I try to be strong but I breakdown and cry sometimes. You were all I had. We had a little but every time you smiled at me it seems like we had a lot. Just wishing I could talk to you one more time. You gave me everything I wanted but everything doesn’t matter all I wanted was you. I never knew how blessed I was until the day I lost you. I sit searching for the reasons but everything happens in the right time and the right season. Amazing love is what we had until the lord had his final say, like he will with me one day.

HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED AN ANGLE DIE.

Have you ever watched an angel die?
Has she ever been taken from your life?
As quickly as she was given life.
Her smile says a thousand words about liven.
Withering away by the death sentence given.
What kind of world do we live in?
Set to die
Not yet ready to fly.
A beautiful creature the world defies.
What can god do?
When she’s never done anything wrong to you.
He watches a daughter be executed like
He had to watch his son be persecuted.
All because a mistake made 
Causing her life never to be the same.
So quickly she fades
And we hold our heads down in shame.
We only have ourselves to blame.

Have you ever watched an angel die?
Have you ever seen one condemned and wanted to cry.
Have you seen one suffer when they didn’t have too?
A treasure so true people didn’t know what to do,
But cause suffering they are blind too.
God sees as she is being unjustly set free by
What many call greed?
He holds her hand.
Watching so few take a stand.
So many of his angels fall
As the rest of us stands tall
And he comes to take them when he hears them call
Who are we to make her call?
Angels are easy to ignore
When the world doesn’t care anymore.
Watching them fall prey
Will god send few and few
Or will he continue to send more 
Just to see what we do.
Is this a test we failed and never knew?

Night Light

Shaped like an angel and always in sight
Translucent shine helping me see clear
Heaven protects me with its golden light

Soothing comfort from this scary night
shimmering glow of wings kept near
shaped like an angel and always in sight

If darkness falls I'll stay awake and fight
grasping with fingers the cross I hold dear
Heaven protects me with its golden light

I'll conquer the shadows with all my might
hold back my scream and control my fear
My guardian angel is always in sight

A whisper of wings embracing me tight
say my prayers loud so God will hear
heaven protects me with its golden light

Rising of the sun my world is all right
ebb the flow of a child's silent tears
shaped like an angel and always in sight
heaven protects me with its golden light

Angel

I will spread my wings and fly,
I will soar in the bright open sky,
it's so beautiful and blue,
and its color always stays true.
 
Being an angel takes work,
no matter how hard the truth may hurt,
but it helps me to be me,
as I'm able to fly freely.
 
An angel of right,
born in a world to fight,
trying my best in this world,
even if everything goes crazy like a big whirl.
 
I'll always be an angel..

I Wonder Why?

“ I Wonder Why….”

The famous question “mommy and daddy why?” That’s daily what parents hear
Kids want any kind of answers even when the answers are not clear
With age they somewhat understand, but others unknown don’t let them sleep
Mysteries of the world and life make them faster breath. 

I wonder why

The Earth is full of beauty just watch how birds are flying
On the other hand, in so many places, there are children dying
When I listen to a river I want to sing
But why we keep destroying them make me think

I wonder why

Here and then I think about war and peace
About hunger in foreign countries, ignorance is a dangerous disease
If I could have wish, I would be an angel with magnificent wings
I would tie them around The Universe with love that can’t be broken by any things

I wonder why

With innocence children are born and with that question why
And parents try keeping them safe and do not want to see them cry
What happens to someone when he or she grows up?
What happens to people’s purity that makes it break up? 

I wonder why

It is a New Year and New Year Resolutions are made
I want to make good one I do not want anybody betrayed 
Follow my example and this time please do not ask why
Because if you think you have to, you are the reason why my dreams could die
 
Sometimes you do not have to ask why

Giving each other hope, and sharing love could make the world a better place
It should come from the heart, from the inner you, with a feeling of peace and 
grace
Reach our potential, growing like a healthy and strong tree
With millions of little branches moving in the breeze unbreakable and free

Sometimes you do not have to ask why

Free of hunger, loneliness, emptiness and fear
Free of diseases and sicknesses that bring to our eyes a tear 
Let’s hold our hands with love and hope
And our hands will make a chain around a globe

Sometimes you do not have to ask why

That chain will be tight like that angel wings what I was dreaming once
And even stronger and stay forever not only days or months
Let’s make this promises and promise’s can come true
If everyone will give up selfishness, we can really make this year a NEW!

And do not asks me a why

That's why heaven has privided her with angel wings
From the moment I was concieved
Iwas flying high on her angel wings, I believe
Always providing love and understanding
To whom ever needs uplifting
From the love of jesus christ in her heart that she surely brings
A rich tradition of love past down from mother to daughter
The love she provided will never ever faulter
We will not all live forever reaching for the heavens above
Onr thing i know for sure is....
My angel wings will be there reaching out her arms
To spread her love

Guardian Angel

He holds her silently, he holds her close, he's there even though she never know. He takes away her stress; he takes away her pain, he takes her away from the world, she feels loved again. When people come and take him away, she is lost and scarred every day. Her hope of him is fading, her fear and heartache is growing. She misses his touch, she misses his kisses. Her angel holds her while she cries, her angel steadies her and holds her when she tries. He knows she hurts, he knows he's gone but he's been there, he's been there all along. She can't see him in the dark or in the light, but she feels her angel holding her day and night. "No need to worry, no need to fear, you may not see me, but I am here." He whispers as he kisses her head while she lays soft and dreaming in her bed.

An Old Drunkard


Sitting on a park bench watching the children play
Lost and alone how does he make it through the day
A bottle by his side that’s hidden from eyes that see
Wishing the day would end but no one hears his plea

Homeless by choice and a drunkard by trade
His mind in turmoil and his heart so dismayed
Sad and alone the man’s life needs some reprieve
The man gets up slowly he’s decided to leave

The worry and misery has gotten too much
He misses his children and his wife’s daily touch
They died in a car wreck running from the abuse
His drinking was to blame along with a very short fuse

He walked away from the bench with a tear in his eye
He’s at his wits end so he gives death a try
No one will miss him or at least that’s what he thinks
He’s merely a homeless, beaten down man that drinks

He runs into the street screaming and yelling it’s the end
But before he got hit an Angel God did send
He was knocked to the ground saved by Gods grace
When the shock wore off he recognized the face

The face of the Angel was that of his wife
She was sent at that moment to save the mans life
She told him she forgave him it was part of Gods plan
She said she loved him dearly and would see him again

As fast as she appeared she was gone with the wind
The man broke down crying for the Angel God sent
He realized he was loved the drinking fogged up his mind
He was going through life as though he was blind

At that very moment he got up from the street
Dusting off his clothes he’s no longer in defeat
He threw down the bottle and thanked God above
For sending an Angel the one he did love

So now when he sits to watch the children play
He reads his Bible to help get him through the day
Now God’s by his side and he lets the world see
That God saved a wretch and God heard his plea

Voice in the Wood

Creaks and crawls....

   the forest speaks its tongue again....

   my wood is sometimes dark and dull,

   Drear, is some shadows near....


There is myst in the night,

   my wood is sometimes ----

   windy-myst voices,

   sometimes,

   it is hushed, 

   and the angels seize not to chatter,

   or it lends itself passing as a ghost

   skulking about the trees ----

   my wood is sometimes


But I shall remember the quiet wood,

   and the angels about their tables,

   and the windy-myst voices,

   and the Voice Who speaks of angels,

   my wood is sometimes....

Silent Night

Just like the stars shinning
through the thick-dark-moving cloud
she stood making her dying 
wish to the heavens _ if I’d be found

holding the body closer to the heartbeat
caressing the body beneath the sheet
listening to the little conversation at least
robbing the hands over the feet

I’d fall to pieces _ if you’d breathe
again and touch gods face
while you fly amidst the sky’s beast
and my heart across like as brace.

Angel

Fall from the sky sweet angel I say
Join me on Earth and together we'll pray
Follow me through the winding path
And come to know my tormented past
Help to heal all the pain
So in my future I may be sane
Wipe the tears off that little girls face
Fix her memories so there won't be a trace
Silence her sobs and tell her its fine
Then protect her with your life till the end of time
Fall from the sky sweet angel I say
Join me on Earth and together we'll pray

Angel with a Message

One early mornig an Angel came my way,
with inspiring word that lit up my my day.

The Angel saw my tearing eyes and said unto me.
I come to bring a Message to you.

                THE MESSAGE
Be patient My Child good days are near,
I have so many plans for you so do NOT fear.

I will always be there to watch over you,
and I know ALL the things that you do.

So when you days come when you're lonely 
and no one seems to Care,
Just get down on your knees and say a prayer. 

With every prayer that you say we'll NEVER be Apart,
Just as long as you say them from deep within your Heart!!

Fantastic Flight - Chapter 2 - The Seething Storm and the Terrific Trance

*chorus*

The mountain winds are howling its stormy resentment
The snow glitters on the triumphant mountains…
I’ve tried to conceal these feelings of discontent
My eyes are spraying with tears of sorrow – weep no more, sad fountains
Don’t push me to the limits – I breathe in and out
I let go of my anxiety and trade it with prosperity– 
I’m one with the passionate, frozen desires in my heart 
I’m strong like Sampson in the bible – 
Let the light of day unfreeze my heart’s agony and avarice
I don’t want to believe in those silly allegories…
Am I your living sacrifice?
My heart is as cold as ice…I need to take His advice!
I have faced reality alone before
Is this real or is this a myth? There’s more land to explore!

(V. 3) I know I’m a scatterbrained boy,
Never meant to be a loner forever it seems
I know – I’ve been manipulated and played with like a valueless toy
I hope you can repair my broken dreams
I’ve had so many chances,
But I ask for one more chance…
My positivity enhances and my luck advances – we exchange splendid glances 
You are beautiful at first and second glance! 
Let’s dance, honey bunches! Let’s dance, darling! 
We’ll both be free – caught in a terrific trance  
You are a marvelous blessing on another level
You are a peace-abiding, virtuous angel, not a dynamic, demented devil
You’re a gift, not a curse!
You’re a gift, not a curse!

*chorus*

The mountain winds are howling its stormy resentment
The snow glitters on the triumphant mountains…
I’ve tried to conceal these feelings of discontent
My eyes are spraying with tears of sorrow – weep no more, sad fountains
Don’t push me to the limits – I breathe in and out
I let go of my anxiety and trade it with prosperity– 
I’m one with the passionate, frozen desires in my heart 
I’m strong like Sampson in the bible – 
Let the light of day unfreeze my heart’s agony and avarice
I don’t want to believe in those silly allegories…
Am I your living sacrifice?
My heart is as cold as ice…I need to take His advice!
I have faced reality alone before
Is this real or is this a myth? There’s more land to explore!

(V. 4) Calm yourself and hopefully, we’ll live in ecstasy!
I overcame this dilemma and I’ve found out that I’m bold like a lion
Be not afraid and don’t feel envy in your heart – let’s share sunlit glee!
I can tell that this hardship will pass like a seething storm – you were born to be a champion
I wish I had a pair of wings like Maleficent!
I envy the golden eagle, able to soar with faith that there’s a grand, fantastic future

Saved by a Angel

 On the edge I stand teetering for an adrenaline ride

 with no wings to glide. Will an angel save me as I 

 fall from grace or is it my own demise? Am I just an

 emotional disgrace with no right to be saved. I do

 not often pray yet have hope is that close to faith?

 Does my soul if I have one deserve an angelic hand.

 I awake by a tranquil river on smooth cobbles I lay. 

 which seems to have broke my fall and clutching a 

 single white feather. At that waking moment my mind

 is settled and open to all possibilities.

Messages for me

The blue balloon that danced around
Gracefully moving without a sound…

The coldness, on the side of my face
The laughing toy, you seemed to have embraced…

The miracles in life we often unearth
Why do we believe, they only come after birth…

And when we are sad and find it hard just to breathe
You have a special way of reminding us to believe…

angel stalker

a watcher from a distance at the words spoken from a man of true color a man 
with a flow of speech in written terminology like no other. Lost in thought at the 
power of words. Some say actions speak louder than words do,but to counteract 
this the pen is mighty than the sword. The walls that surround me daily so much 
written some of great wisdom some of comedy some words written by the 
forgotten the lost the wondering still searching to practice that that they preach. 
So hmm i speak pass a message along no matter the message u never know 
what some positive insight can mean to the eyes that stare past u into the 
deeper workings of ur innerself

My sweet Angel

To the sweetest Angel on earth
Loving you forever is going to be so easy
Only you make my life worth living
And only you can mend my broken heart
For to me you are such a true friend
And I hope you’ll be with me to the end
You and you alone can make my heart sing
And you my love make me who I am today
Someone who is just so much in love
With an angel God sent me from above

Friend

Alone and desperate
Searching for the words
Sweet music in my head,
The sorrow of birds.

The walls are closing in on me,
The room lit with shadow
But my hope has left me
Naked and alone.

I search for a path,
One that's right and true,
But I've lost all hope
In what the world can do.

I search in the darkness
Through my perceptive mind
For any ray of truth
Any word that's kind.

Drops of despair fall down my cheek
As I stare into the glass,
Silently waiting in the quiet
For these feelings to pass.

Glaring into the tunnel
All I see is smoke,
My vision is cloudy
As I begin to choke.

In this foggy vessel,
I begin to lose my sight
When suddenly I see it,
A radiant image of light. 

This figure is Angelic,
Calling out my name
Beckoning me closer,
Reaching from my shame.

I stumble as I draw nearer
But she helps me to stand
I feel my body numbing
As I take the angel's hand.

We begin to walk together
This angel by my side
I know nothing can hurt me
Because my faith is deep inside.

The angel stops the demons
From lashing at my back,
From spitting wicked words
And maintaining their attack. 

She guides me always forward
Keeps me on the track
I leave behind the evil
Never to look back.

She pulls me to the sunlight,
Out of the darkened hole
She puts light back my heart
And raises up my soul.

She makes me happy
And she helps me through
Reminds me of the good things
I once knew.

Although heaven-sent,
She is of the earth
She is my best friend;
I know what she's worth.

A true friend knows
Your song and its chords,
And can sing it for you
When you forget the words.

She'll always be there
As a listening ear
A shoulder to cry on
For all of your tears.

She'll be by me always
She'll always be near
This is my heart
She'll always be in here.

Safe

I am being strangled by the grips of darkness, I can’t breathe, I am suffocating.
It’s a feeling I am used to in a cold lonely world. I’m drowning, the grips of death pulling me further and further under the waves.
It’s a life I am destined to, a life I know.
Stories of love and happiness are just in movies, and in the lives of others around me, they can’t feel the pain I feel.
God has a plan for everyone? Don’t tell me that, who would want someone to suffer so much, unless they had something greater in store for them?
I keep faith in life, keep faith in something greater, and somehow the grip weakens, the waves stop and i am above the water, in a calm ocean.
There’s a feeling in my chest, a feeling i didn’t know was real. 
It’s like I have a guardian angel protecting me, an angel who loves me, an angel who would give anything to make me happy. 
It scares me to accept this angel, I am not used to this, it’s hard to come into the bright light when you’ve always been surrounded by dark.
But then I hear your voice, and just your voice reassures me that everything will be ok.
It gives me hope, tells my heart to open up, to let the love in, to not be scared, to live my life without worry.
When I had always felt alone, I now know I don’t have to handle this alone, through the light and the dark, my heart is in your hands, and I know it’s safe there.

My Dream My Dreamer

The greatest gift I've ever known 
A special angel  I kept till grown 
Sent straight to me from God above 
A precious soul for me to love 

He gave to her a heart of gold 
And smile to warm me in the cold 
The strength to stand up tall and proud 
The will to take on any crowd 

A love for life beyond compare 
Desire to treat all people fair 
Courage to look fear in the eye 
Reach for the stars and touch the sky 

But now my little girl is grown 
She'll face the world on her own 
This angel God has lent to me 
Must fly to with another be 

May all your precious gifts of God 
Stay with you as through life you trod 
And every time you touch the ground 
Your love for life can still be found 

To touch someone to help them see 
The love and kindness you give so free 
And may you be forever part 
Of the memories in their heart 

So my special angel dear 
Spread your wings and have no fear 
And to the world be solid gold 
Then look back when you are old 

To see the multitude of grace 
In the hearts and on the face 
Of every soul your life has touched 
We all should pray for just as much 

The dream of every heart that's mild 
To change the world so cruel & wild 
But you're one of the chosen few 
Who has the gift to carry through

I See Angels

I See Angels
 
I see angels, not only, when I sleep, 
more often, when awake, 
some petite, in gowns, flowing long, 
or putting final touches, 
to beauty, that needs none, 
from little angels, to full grown ones 

They talk in tones, often, 
disguised, not understood, 
a cryptological language, 
interpreted only by angels, 
in their own angel group, 
occasionally break tradition, 
speak certain phrases, 
recognizable to all, 
always welcome, always good, 
increasing my love, for my angel brood 

Memories of angels, pleasurable thoughts, 
lead to today, when I thought naught, 
an angel does leave me, 
for another, she will care, 
increasing the love we all share 

All of my angels, share the same fate, 
leaving their father, once their first date, 
soon will return, with their own special angels, 
for me to love and to care 

A contented father, rejoices and waits, 
for I see angels

Evil Abound

Evil abound in the dark night air, 
The watcher is waiting, 
As you feel it’s blood thirsty stare.

Sweat starts to form 
On your brow and your cheek 
As fear grabs your voice 
So you can not even speak. 

Icy fingers of terror 
Run down your neck to your back, 
As you nervously anticipate 
The demons vicious attack 

Palm to your chest 
You feel your heart race 
As the blood starts to slowly 
Drain from your face, 
White as if paper 
Ashen colored with fright 
As you imagine the unbearably 
Painful first bite 

Fear in your heart 
And tears in your eyes 
As you try to be brave 
And await its surprise 

It steps from the shadows 
And into full view 
The hideous evil 
That was waiting for you 

With the light you now see 
A form and its shape, 
Wondering what’s in store 
And wanting death over rape 

But to your relief 
Through tear filled eyes you now see, 
It’s not evil or hateful 
As you believed it to be 

It stands in the light 
Unthreatening and at ease, 
Not wanting to harm 
But only to please.
 
The wings on its back 
Are now spread wide and of white, 
That shine with a pleasing 
Soft gleaming light 

Its features so beautiful 
And wondrous to see, 
Your fear and the terror 
Are suddenly set free 
For this is not a creature 
Of death, evil or hate, 
But a loving blessed angel 
From heavens front gate 

In that moment it was clear 
All your life you did waste 
For fearing the unknown 
And judging in haste

My angel

Angels are real although most are 
not seen, my angel's real, but she 
doesn't have wings. My angel is the 
one I love, my angel was sent from 
above. My angel's the one in my 
dreams, my angel's the one that's 
never unseen. 

My angel is my love, my life, my 
angels always in my sight. My angel's 
the only one I see at night, the one 
I wanna hold so tight, my angel's the 
one who makes everything right. 

My angel brings me clarity and conclusions, 
my angel always relieves my confusion. My 
angel's always by my side, my angel's always 
along for the ride. My angel relieves the 
pain inside, my angel helps me overcome 
everything I've tried to hide. Now I'm 
gonna help my angel put her pain aside, 
and show her that she should really shine.

My Guidian Angel

Sometimes I'd feel so all alone
I had no one I could call my own

I use to sit and ask God why
Loneliness was filled so deep inside

He said to me do not be blue
Someone is always with you

She's your guardian angel and she'll always be
Right by your side for eternity

I began to speak to her through a prayer
And soon realized that she really does care 

 Just Believe -  is what she taught me  to do
With Faith, the hope and love will be forever with you

If we all believed in our angel you see
What a wonderful world this would be

A Child's Wish

                            A Child’s Wish
God, you have many Angels, could you give one to me,
To be always beside me and keep me company.
I’d like my Angel to help me in my many chores,
Then I won’t feel that any task really bores.
God, I do not ask for much, only one Angel please,
To always help guide and give my heart some ease.
An Angel I can run and play with every single day,
I promise to make them happy and not get in their way. 
When I’m all grown up, you can have your Angel back,
Is this too much to ask you, or must I use more tact.
I am told that I must share when I’m out at play,
I wonder if you’ll give one Angel, that’s all I have to say.
                         The Answer
My dear little child, that’s not possible for me,
If I give you an Angel, others will be unhappy you see.
And I need all my Angels, they help me everyday,
They can watch from Heaven, when you’re out at play.
I’d like to be obliging, but no Angel will I give,
They have many duties, looking into lives that people live.
I know it would be wonderful to have one of your own,
Really my dear child, they must stay with the holy throne.
                        Child’s Reply
Thank you so much dear Father. I think I understand,
I can not have an Angel, you need them at your hand.
If you ever decide to change your mind on this,
Remember that I’m only a child, with a child’s wish.
And dear Father, I won’t pressure you anymore today,
For I know you have an Angel watching while I play.
I also know your love is with me every day and night,
I won’t ever be afraid, for you hold me oh so tight.

A Grown-Ups Prayer

Dear Father, can you spare an Angel to be with me today,
I am not a little child, I’m grown up in many-a-way.
I said I wouldn’t bug you, many years ago,
But my mind is set on that Angel I had wanted so.
I’m not that little child who just wanted to pretend,
I sometimes feel so lonely and need another friend.
Father, I have respect for you and love beyond compare,
But do you have an Angel, that with me you will share.
                       The Answer
My dear grown up child, my answer has to stand,
I will not send an Angel from the promised land.
My good Book I have sent you and music you can sing,
I will not single out just one, and give them everything.
But one thing I can promise, my Angel will visit you,
When your life is over, my Heaven will be in view.
So live your life for Jesus the way you aught to do,
For my Angels up in Heaven are certainly watching you.
                       The Reply
Thank you dear Father, this time I really understand,
I will not have an Angel till I go to the glory land.
I will strive to do what’s right and just be satisfied,
To live for you dear Father and the Lord who was crucified.
I will never plead with you for an Angel anymore,
I know they have to stay around Heaven’s golden door.
Thank you for your patience, you have been tolerant of me,
Father, hold your thought on my Angel, if it pleases Thee.

My LIFE Has Often Been Solace

My LIFE Has Often Been Solace

With the clouds as pillows moving silently

Towards Heavens velveteen sky 

With angels bright white gowns

As I can see to the heavens

Where old country church bells ring

As the angels sing in harmoniously

My LIFE has often been solace

With honey colored shadows

With a poring sunlight of zest
 
Across the the heavens to my heart

I see your face looking at me 

Which inspires my soul write your words

Your voice is like a soft wind carrying it to me

Your words I write reach to all distant lands

These eyes have often been solaced by your return

As You fill this vacant spot in my heart with Love

With the most wonderful whisper of Your voice

As You embrace my heart with Your Love

As You show me the way You love me

As you show me the way I need You

As You guide the way I live my LIFE

Like the most wonderful fire in LIFE

As You teach me I learn and pass it on the them all

Don't Fear the Reaper

Black Angels search
As the world turns to grey
In soulless march
For their soulful prey
 
They congregate from places
Never heard of in many years
To wallow in their carnage
Spreading their demonic fears
 
Spirited from the underworld
The blackened depths of Hades
Diminishing the light above
Leaving earth in deathly shade
 
Skeletal marching soldiers
Empty of life and soul
Desperate to spread their black
As the brightness takes the toll
 
The worlds in need of saviour
A light to shine through soon
No longer can we rely
On our sun, or our moon
 
A journey must be made
To free us from this plight
A White Angel to be found
To turn this wrong to right
 
To Serbia heroes travel
Mileseva Monastery reached
As they stand in front of a fresco
An Angel beside Christ's feet
 
The mentioning of these words
Myrrh-bearers on Christs grave
The fresco starts to glow
Is this the light that saves
 
For the heroes standing there
Their bodies absorb the light
For in their hearts they know
They are the savours of our plight
 
Messengers now on their travel
Different journey's they partake
Don't fear the Reaper
For his light will re-awake

Sweet Onions

As I cut the sweet onions
the Angel whisper's in my ear,
giving me visions
of the one I love.
I know not what it means,
only that it is upon me.

My knife is working on it's own,
I only hold the handle,
slicing and dicing 
to the beating of my heart.
My thoughts go beyond today,
to days and mistakes
that I can not fix ever.

Am I a martyr to Romance and Passion,
did I not embrace Love enough ?

I'm sure the Devil whispered in my ear then,
taking me to deserted streets 
and cheap motel rooms,
where names matter little at all,
only the money in your pocket.

She was with me,
with the Devil whispering to her,
maybe she the one I Love
showed me how to forget the day
and live just a few minutes at a time.

The smell of the sweet onions
seems to pour into me
bringing a touch of reality back.
The tears they bring
is covering up the real ones.

The Angel grants me 
one last look of her face
as I tell the Devil to whisper 
to someone else.

tTthe Sacrificial Lamb

tTthe Sacrificial Lamb 

The Father Abraham was in the desert near the place where GOD was at 
when there came a sound like thunder from the infinite place where GOD is at. 
“Take the boy and bind him up and tie him to MY altar and take thy sword in thy 
right hand and offer him a living sacrifice to me for eye am GOD.” 
This was the boy named Isacc in the wood of all the desert places where the 
voices of the 
GOD was heard from up above. 
And Abraham was never certain but he understood that GOD must be obeyed, 
and though it hurt him HE stood there with arm upraised and Brought UP the 
ARM with all his might to strike the child where he was bound where he did lay 
upon the altar of the GOD. But just before the deed was done and just when all 
his hope had gone and just before the SWORD did  plummet into Isacc and the 
deed would be recorded there was an ANGEL in the SUN. 
STOP, look there in the wood in that bush where LAMB is caught. 
There is the sacrifice for you to TAKE  to me Today, 
Let loose the BOY and take the LAMB and SLAY. 
This is the SACRIFICE of GOD. 
Because you ABRAHAM have not withheld thy SON from me, 
The Lambe will come the Virgin Birth and take all the peoples sins away. 
This Poem may startle some of ewe but the sentiment and deeds is true, 
if not the words please just remember that this is not scripture. 
The Christ is Jesus and he BECAME the living Sacrifice, 
And Isacc is my father in my Spirit and the Way for Gentiles to be won. 
And there is still the ANGEL in the SUN to point the way. 
Say Jesus and be done.

An Angel saved my life

One cold,winter's night,so long ago
A man lay frozen,against a church door
His break was shallow and his pulse was weak
The alcohol had sunk to his core
The man lay limp and motionless
His eyes began to roll into his head
It was almost certain that by morning
This lost soul would've been dead
As this man lingered between despair and death
With snow blowing through his unkept beard
A star fell down from Heaven
And a marvelous creature appeared
An angel stood majestically
Dressed in solid white
She knealt down to the man before her
And told him not to fright
She placed her hand on his frozen head
As the snow painted the ground white
The angel spoke in a soft voice saying,
"You shall not die here tonight"
With such a simple phrase,the angel went on her way
To the Heavens from which she came
The man lay in a peaceful slumber
As warm as an eternal flame
The morning came with a warm sunrise
The new fallen snow glittered so bright
The man awoke to the golden sun beams
Happy to see the new light
Suddenly,the church door opened
A preacher stood there,staring at the man
Before either spoke,the preacher extended his arm
And offered a helping hand
The preacher helped the man to his feet,and asked,
"Is there someone I could call...a friend...a wife?"
With tears in his eyes,the man could only say one thing,
"An angel saved my life."

My angel

your my angel watching down from up above
through my tears and out of love
you came from heaven why up high
across the seven sea's and the skies

doesn't tell the truth but never lies

where we can be finally be together

ANGEL OF LOVE

I am an angel sent from heaven above
Sent to protect you on the wings of a dove.
My spirit will guide you as your soul will sing.
Your guardian angel of love to you my heart I bring.

I am your spirits protector, this was my command.
I will lead you to glory if you take my hand.
An angel of love sent from the Savior on high.
He can be your angel too if you will give him a try.

I will forever be a friend in whom you can confide.
In the shelter of my wings, your heart you can hide.
But always remember I am but a servant not the master.
Our real angel of love is Jesus, our hearts crafter.

Oh how can one love be so true yet free?
The love of our Savior in our hearts was meant to be.
When you think of angels think not only of me.
Think of Christ's sacrifice, an a true angel of love you will see.

Beast and Angel in the Flame

Beast and Angel in the Flame
 
It will take more than religion to save you
More than the word of God to ignite you
More than thought to give you direction
More than study to give you conviction
 
And faith in the mountain will not help you
Belief in a path cannot guide you
Your moral decisions will only drown you
Until you wake up
 
When nothing but your own mirror calls you
And nothing but your own heart inflames you
All the passion in the world
Will remain nothing more than a shadow
 
When one day realization beckons you
With its delicate finger of remembrance
Makes you kneel at the foot of acceptance
And kiss the feet of who you are
 
When the doors of your judgment crumble 
before the power of your desire
All the boundaries you have set
Will vanish in the needing want of fire
 
You will stand naked before another person
All your heart, your body, your spirit left; open
When gratitude and release floods every vein
Just to know you are human; again
 
All the same, all the same; we are all the same
In pleasure and in pain
We are all the same
Beast and Angel in the flame
 
And when life washes through you
In pain and pleasure for you
When you stand on this brink and it encompasses you
In a single name
 
Then lift your head in surrender
Raise your eyes in strength
All that you are in one second remember
Without you I am nothing
  
And I stand before you with belief
I hold you bound with a power higher than common love
Naked
Drawn to each other by a force greater than the both of us
 
And the vicious and the crack where the light pours in
And the supplicant and in the wine taste of beyond relief
I am saved
By the you beyond love
 
It will take more than a moral to save you
More than the words of a poet to ignite you
More than institution to give you direction
More than faith to give you religion
 
And trust in the law will not help you
Belief in justice will not lead you
Such moral decisions will only befool you
Until you wake up
 
When nothing but your own mirror calls you
And nothing but your own heart inflames you
All the passion in the world
Will remain nothing more than an unknown shadow
 
All the same, all the same; we are all the same
In pleasure and in pain
We are all the same
Angel and Beast in the flame

Don't Stop Praying

you've been praying to the Lord God you have an emergency
and you hope that He will respond to your prayers immediately
but hold on, you've got it twisted, you need to comprehend
that God answer prayers, BUT WHEN it's up to Him
so don't stop praying and don't hang up that spiritual telephone
don't stop praying even if you only get a dial tone

Cornelius was in his house praying for a blessing
down on his knees, his situation was most stressing
and on the fourth day at the ninth hour
he saw the manifestation of God's almighty power
an angel appeared before him at God's behest
an angel appeared before him to answer his prayer request

God answers prayers but many fail to understand 
that He answers prayers according to His master plan
it might be at the midnight hour, it might be at the ninth
just stay on the line praying even if it takes all day and all night
and be you a Jew or a Gentile, we're all children of the God the Lord Christ
the Soul Provider, the Saving Messiah whose death was the salvation of our lives

the Alpha, the Omega, the Beginning and the End
the Prince of Peace, the Living God, our Eternal Friend
He's the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, the Holy Trinity
the One who created the universe and all humanity
He's the One who breathe life back into those old dry bones
the One who occupies the seat of the highest throne
He's the One who protected Daniel in the lion's den
the One who sent angels to watch over him
He's the One who shielded Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
from the fiery fires burning in King Nebuchadnezzar's inferno
He fed five thousand with just two fish and five loaves
and compelled the people to come hear Him in droves
and when that woman with the bleeding sickness touched His garment hem
it was the power in Him to answer prayers that made the flow of blood stem
He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind and voice to the mute
He gave us the universal parables of wisdom that even the Pharisses could not refute
and on the way to Mount Calvary He bore the cross of the sins of mankind
and said to His Father with His last breath "forgive them" for they know not their own minds

so don't stop praying and give the Lord the chance
to come into your life and change your circumstance
don't stop praying just keep the lines of spiritual communication open and clear
don't stop praying to God the Lord Christ just wait for your miracle or an angel to appear

Upon an Angels' Wing

 There is a time and a place for tears
there is a reason why they are shed,
But, with each heavy warm salt drop
there is someone looking down, crying from on high.
Through the night, into the day, the tears remain to fall
but now a light comes into view, an  Angel appears.  .  .
The Angel says "Don't cry for me, I'm okay, today I got my wings."
and you answer with a tear, that you place upon his wing.
The Angel flies away, to the world unseen
but you know that your tear flies too, upon your Angels' wing. . .
So as the Angel continues to fly,  he looks to you and says
"I have taken all your sorrow in this one tear drop,
never wonder why, just know I'll keep it until your time comes next,
as a reminder of your love for me."
With these final words he leaves, and there's a twinkle in your eye
you know now you'll be all right, for you have an Angel, always by your side.

Making love to an Angel

I lay asleep in fields of dreams

Waiting for her to make her scream

I felt a chill across my spine

She entered the room of her divine

My eyes still closed she rubbed my back

I felt her nails though as a tack

Compress my pain into her chest

Releasing my undying stress

Her feathers draped along my legs

As she climbed on my lonely bed

For it was vacant only for her

As the angel of darkness now my cure

Her soft lips so tenderly

Caressed my back in ecstasy

The feeling she instilled in me

Was that of pureness and vanity

As she sprawled out as a porcelain doll

I felt the warmth turn into cold

Her nails grew long and sunk so bold

Straight to my heart removing my soul

Her feathers grew black when my life entered her

Her eyes so true now dark as she tears

Me limb from limb and devours my pride

I must die now as the Angel is alive

She lives off souls so desperately

Seeking love they turn and wait for greed

To find the one so sooth their soul

While removing the passion God only knows

The love from her was long over due

Her kiss was pure until she saw my truth

Devour me please and release my kind

As the Angel of Death made love to my mind

And thy shall be one

When the Lord called to His angels
there was thunder from the throne
He said there is a child of mine down there
who's been too long alone
So He called one precious angel
out from all the rest
and said I'm sending you my child
for you are my very best
Now there are no words to say how much
to Him this child was worth
for Him to send an angel here
to walk upon this earth
Then again when they were married
there was thunder from the throne
He said I see my child now
no longer is alone
Now listen to my story
for I know that it is true
that God does answer prayer you see
there's nothing He can't do
Now I know this precious angel
who lives a mortal's life
for I was that lonely child of His
and that angel is my wife

Seven Thunders

Riding up on a cloud I met the thunders.
There were seven and each spoke words.
They spoke great things of many wonders.
Lightning sounded to the cattle’s of herds.
The sky turned dark and the Seas roared.
Birds flew in the skies and they soared.
Around the seven thunders was a scroll.
Written on both sides were of all souls.
 
An angel took my right hand,
And pointed down at the land,
Miss if you may forfeit today,
Upon your head is stoned clay.
To your right is a light in sight.
Bite and be bright by the night.
 
The seven thunders were on my head.
Heavy and weighty like steel and lead.
Rumbling and roaring my ears pained.
I saw the lives of many already slain.
On the scroll were the names of those.
One by one they awakened and rose.
 
Another angel took my left hand high,
And pointed me straight up to the sky,
The Moon and Sun will never lie she said.
Miss if you may forfeit today your dead.
Upon your head is twelve crowns of gold.
Take them to the lands and be very bold.
 
The seven thunders were on my neck.
Heavy and weighty kept me in check.
Rumbling and roaring my ears ached.
I saw the vessels of the living break.
On the scroll were the names of such.
One by one they did not know enough.

Stand on the Word.

She stands tall
a pillar of virtue
cloaked in morality.
Looks with disdain upon would be seducers
as she plods through  this
sin ridden earth.

Never does she bend to temptation 
that sucks at her feet
attempting to woo her.

Leers and jeers do not distract her
nor cloying hands attempting to touch her.
To look into her eyes
is to see an angel  sword drawn
ready to defend her.

Weaklings shudder at the sight
leaving dust in the wake of their flight.
Terror awaits those who attempt to seduce her
at the hands of her angel guide.

Over her head God's hand hovers.
Beneath her feet the bible sits.
Standing on the word
she walks the earth
a symbol of faith
a  key to purity
an example to others
till her time here is served.

A memory she'll leave  to us
who are easily distracted 
by the wiles of the world
by  frivolous behaviour and
deeds untold.

Stand tall
Stand firm
Women of the world.
Stand on the bible
Stand on the Word........... the word of God.

HIS Choice

Hovering silently over this earth
He instructs his angel to make notes
A young mother-to-be, He names
“Give her a boy”, says He to his dutiful angel
Then passing on another name, He pronounces
“For this loving family,
Let there be a pretty baby girl”
Finally, He names family and instructs,
“Give them a disabled child”
Stunned, the angel looks up and asks, 
“But why only these humans, Lord?
How happy and blissful they are!”
Calmly, He replies,
“This is the reason why
I give them a special child
I can not be so cruel as to give one
To those whom woe already betides”
Once again, the angel speaks,
“But Lord, are they strong enough?”
And he gets the reply:
“Once the initial shock subsides
They will accept this truth 
They know not yet but
They are to be envied.
Never shall they take 
For granted all the ‘ordinary’ things
When the child speaks the very first word
They shall witness a miracle so wonderful.
I will grant them the strength they need
To face and rise above the ignorance, cruelty and prejudice
I will be at their side
Every moment of their lives 
For they are doing my work
And they are by my side”
The angel nods thoughtfully 
And asks, his pen poised in mid-air,
“Lord, will there be any guardian angel of this child?”
HE smiles and replies, “A mirror will suffice”

Porcelain Angel

 If love were an angel of porcelain
Careful would we be then.
Her silken wings so fragile
Would never touch harsh wind.

If love were a glazed, glass sculpture
From high, we would not let her fall,
Tip and strike the ground to rupture
Shattering into fragments small.

If love were a cut glass angel
Her protectors we would be,
Not touched by friend or stranger
Or flecked by other's greed.

If a porcelain angel love were
A painted tear upon her cheek,
Her wings the shape of doves,
So fragile, though not weak.

For if we let her tumble
Carelessly chip or cleave,
If in love we should ever stumble
We'll be afforded no reprieve.

There so skinny as a stick, so big as a kiss,  with color
of fall with red yellow, white, brown leaves, what is the
 color of the creators love all colors, yes all colors
 oh yes and glasses are neat and nice you are smart too
 In valley of hills of green  America I saw a angel of love
 Is God here looking at all the tiny pretty girls of different Color
 walking  to school and one had one leg and in a wheel
 chair and no hair and the angel wink at them to say
 bye he well be back to see all of you sweet girls and
 boys they like snakes and mud he loves them also.
 The boys like to get dirty but God understands he
  God is a orphan yes he is and he understands and
  Loves orphans also of course because he is a

The veil of the under rug swept prophet part 1

Where to start
Other then in the pieces of the music of a dream crossing over into reality that 
spirals out from me
There is a truth
Not the truth of how my first last and middle names are songs sang by the greats 
of the generations of my life
but in a dream brought about by a truth
A fact of the universe revealed to me
I had conversations
One with a girl whose bedroom was in the sky
And in time she will remind me what these four powerful sentences are
The other, a man and I told him secrets of heavens and hells
And the driving force within him and his purpose of immortality to protect the 
angels from falling to this land we call earth of god's veil of ignorance which is 
really...
How do you explain it other than a deeply routed subconscious godly issue?
You can only discover by reading between the lines of spirituality and bibles

A prophet predicted a birth in the family of the greatest gods
and this child needed to be tested to see if he would betray his family and earth 
and heavens
Which was once a garden
and somehow in what is forgotten, mankind knew of this
And realized if they knew what the prophet did of the test and gods favorite angel 
they could become gods as well

Heaven is a land of denial
A place of happily ever after
Hell was a land of the test to face
Where the undercover favorite angel was to trick a child
and now the liars burn and twist in agony 
And earth is a reflection of puzzle pieces of what must not be forgotten for the 
gods to fix
What the prophet predicted of destiny and men having an instant to become 
godlike themselves

An Angel Came to Roberts Hall

An angel sat at the foot of my bed
And laid his hand upon my leg
After I fell asleep from a night of tears
In a lonely hell and fetal position.
I never saw his face or form,
But I felt God's overwhelming peace
And the place where his hand had lain.
In the morning when I woke afresh,
I saw the place where my angel sat;
Realizing that the next year would hold
The answer to my loud cries and tears,
I made my bed and packed my bags
And unlocked my bare room door.
Going outside, I felt born again again
Thanking God for Roberts Hall's womb.

She's An Angel With Wings

She’s an angel with wings
Who flies high in the sky
And comes down to earth
To answer questions of why.

Her wings are beautiful
They’re made of white snow
And in her golden hair 
Lays a pretty pink bow.

She helps children in trouble
When they’re not being nice
She listens to their problems
And then gives them advice.

She’ll help you when you’re lost
When you can’t find your way
And when you’re feeling down
She knows just what to say.

When you think you’re in trouble
Just believe that she’s there 
And she’ll come and help you out
It doesn’t matter when or where.

She’s an angel with wings
And she’s always by your side
So whenever you’re in trouble
You’ll never have to hide.

Angel Song

I took a walk before a setting sun
The birds chirping all around
All at once, I stopped in amazement
As I heard the most beautiful sound

A song of worship, a song of praise
Such a wonderful melody
Just a glimpse I had to have
My eyes just had to see

Walking softly, not to disturb
Along the path I crept
My eyes beheld such a great wonder
I stopped, and with joy, I wept

I looked upon an angel choir
Singing a song so full of grace
Oh, how I wanted to join in
But I just stood in place

Since that day, I've changed my life
And when my days get long
I think about that joyful day
When I'll join in the Angel Song

Blessed by an Angel

An angel walked through a nursery, in the middle of the night,
she floated over to the infants, glowing in the moon light.
The babies in the hospital, were all left alone
to sleep peacefully and in quiet, before their mothers took them home
But now as they awoke, they looked up at her in awe
At the face of an angel, perfect without a flaw.
The angel smiled sadly, for they would grow up in a world of sin, 
the babies smiled back at her, happy to be in the world they were in.
One baby started to cry, suddenly full of fear
the angel quieted him gently, wiping away a tear
She started to sing, and the baby watched as she placed a hand on his head
Who was this amazing creature.. not quiet alive, yet not quite dead?
They listened to her voice, the sound beautiful and pure.
Her eyes were fixed on them, her gaze strong and sure. 
She whispered to them "Some of you will have everything you want and need,
but the rest of you will have to work, in this world full of greed. 
I know it isn't fair, that half will be happy, and half of you sad
but you will remember my image, and soon we will be together in heaven, merry 
and glad
I'll be there to help you, when times get tough, 
whether your life is happy, or your life is rough." 
The babies grinned and giggled, and drifted into sleep,
The angel was happy for them, she would not weep.
She began to leave, smiling at their innocence,
if the devil tried to harm them, she would be their defense.
She disappeared into heaven, leaving some of her spirit in them all, 
Now they each had huge hearts, although their bodies were small.
The babies would never forget this wonderful angel.. and soon they will know her 
blessings,
but will they remember what she stood for? And that life isn't meant to be 
depressing?
Maybe these babies, since they were blessed with the sight of an angel, will be 
great, 
brilliant, and caring people, who preach love instead of hate.
Have you been blessed by an angel? At any age at all? Maybe not.
But maybe you choose to ignore it, call it a dream, or maybe.. you just forgot.

Of the Dark Angel

    As we walk 
beneath a bright moon
   Shadows greet 
us
    a dark angel 
    soon appears
  let the clouds 
roll by overhead
   we know our way now
   the dark angel 
leads us to 
our ancestral home
    Midnight
the wings of this angel
     reflect the moonlight
above our heads
stars form constellations
     we walk
beneath the ghosts of the gods
    the dark angel 
sends us his message
and the night is ours

Seeking Existence

I’m terrified of winning
I’m scared that I may lose
When wherever I beginning
Is a place that I can’t prove

I walk into this feeling
Like an angel in a storm
As though I am redeeming
The devil in my form

I withheld the honest answers
I shared with you my ghosts
I hurt you all for so long
But I hurt myself the most

I’m terrified of living
I’m scared that I may die
There’s nothing worth forgiving
When I think it’s all a lie

I crawl back into weakness
Like a devil seeking love
And I will swallow every pretence
For the angel climbing up

Would love Ever Go Away

Its so simple to say.
Why would love ever go away.
Will it still remain, yes.
Your an angel from the sky.
Your the girl I want too see.
Why oh why can't I see.
Your the guardian angel that watchs

Your looks,your smile,I look in

Or how the stars glimmer at night.
Or how how nights turns into day.
Or when when a rainbow's color
shine.
Or when you hear the wispers of the
ocean blue.
Cause when I look in your eyes.
Your smile.

The warm feeling I get.
So I promise you happiness and love.
But all I need to know,will your love

Shed Your Fake Angel Wings

So shed your fake angel wings
we both know the Devil sings within your heart
run around and preach to heathens
hide your hypocrisy from them
condemn those who disagree on little things
we both know the Devil sings within your heart
what once were good intentions
have been converted to bad
you’ve lost sight of every conviction you ever had
persecute the different
while you dissent from His true teachings
attack those who disagree with your preaching
attack those who try and show your true colors
attack every man, woman, and child who practices differently from what you say
preach love while you hate
seek praise from those you berate
all you do is for personal gain
I look at you and am sad
too blind to feel your own pain
So shed your fake angel wings
for we both know
the Devil sings within your heart

Angels

There are angels among us
Though we may not see
They have many duties to perform
Without them where would we be.

They are always by our side
To help us through our lives
They keep us safe from harm
They help us to survive.

If we are feeling desperate
As if no place to turn
An angel lands upon our shoulder
To help us to discern.

Angels are in waiting
They come when we’re in need
With unconditional love
They carry out their deed.

So when you’re feeling blue
And life seems to take its toll
Remember an angel is beside you
Adding strength and love to your soul.

The Angel


There is an Angel in my midst, how do I know?
Well I looked down my hall way and there was an omnipotent glow
I covered my eyes and wanted speak but words wouldn't blow from between
my cheeks so I placed my head where my feet would usually go

I decided to raise my head and to my surprise 
I saw a figure that reminded me of someone I know right before my eyes
It was great-grandmother whom was sick yet hadn't died

This I thought until the phone rang and to my surprise
great-grandmother had came to see me just one more time
She went with and Angel escorted to heaven way up on high 
Although I miss her knowing she still lives helped me dry my eyes

The Angel

On fluffy clouds, so billowy white
The angel sat, protecting night
In satin and linen with woven gold
The angel protected those in her fold.

The love from the skies, apparent indeed,
Is plentiful, wonderful and always so free.
Without asking with words or gestures at all
The angel stays perched and lets all love fall.

She comes from the cloud when danger is lurking
To save us from harm, let’s us know she is working.
She loves us because God gave her the right
To love us eternally, each day and each night.

With strength in her wings to comfort and keep
The angel too watches when we’re fast asleep.
Allowing the dreams of only beauty sublime
To enter our world both day and night times.

when he spoke of your grace I then knew you cared 

I didn’t know about you and now I can see 
No matter what happens your always with me 
I asked for your blessings and what I should do 
My lives been a mess Lord but you already knew 

You sent me your Angel 
with news from above  
You sent me an Angel who spoke of your love 

It took just that moment when I thought all was lost 
when you sent me an Angel I then knew the cost 
You have been there beside me to guide me along 
and Lord you know I’ve just done it wrong
I now know my Father who won’t let me fall 
Cause his grace and his mercy is given to all 
who believe 
 

Just open my eyes Lord and let me see 
That I’m never alone cause your always with me.
So my friends thank the Lord each and every day 
Watch out for an Angel he’s coming your way

A Kiss for My Great Grandmother

I kissed an angel's cheek today and watched her as she flew away.
I couldn't hold back the tears I cried, as I said my last goodbyes.
For never again would I be able to see that beautiful angel open her eyes and 
breathe.

Now she's up at Heaven's gate,
where her husband has been at wait.
He kissed that angel's cheek today, and held her hand as they walked away.
He couldn't hold back the tears he cried, as he hugged her with a joyful sigh.

Now she's bowing at the Father's feet, a person she has longed to meet.
He kissed that angel's cheek today, he was so glad she was there to stay.
He couldn't hold back the tears he cried, as he showed his amazing pride.
For that angel will always be up in Heaven with God, our King.
