I am a coward with open sores.
I write and wonder who it bores.
I hear my heart and mind argue repeatedly.
I see others carrying out my dreams;
that’s what’s defeated me.
I am a coward with open sores.
I pretend open doors are closed, and walk the other way.
I touch base with the fear in my heart, tearing me apart,
leaving nothing to say...
I worry the world will leave me.
I cry because no one believes in me.
I am a coward with open sores.
I understand nothing comes easy.
I say I’m happy, but even I don’t believe me.
I dream I am healed and brave.
I try to overcome my weaknesses before I’m in my grave.
I hope you hear me.
I’m on all fours.
I am a coward with open sores.

(Dedicated to Folake)
Your eyes, woman
are like twilight rainbow
amorously bearing aloft passions of mine
toward androcytic ecstacy.
They tell of endless lights.
Night skies clarion the warmth of you
keep me balled-up till
i am tilted to your adorned essence.
May I call up words to adore you,
agglomerate them into a panoply of worshippers
unsandalled before you
like Moses at the burning bush.
And now you seem to fall asleep
but you tell me it's the heavy night
bidding toward a sunny dawn
wherein our love is lighted.
Slowly I let you fall asleep
impatient with the long night
waiting to gaze once more
into the eyes of my lovely love.
Then a lip is placed on yours
and you rouse up wide-eyed
smiling at my romantic move.
We enjoyed the night, cruising on.
Judas betrayed Jesus’s whereabouts
End, was near
Son of God, knew this
Universe of the Son of the Divine Father, restored
Sins of man forgiven, Prince of our Universal domain, alive in the hearts of his children
I can't believed I
Missed all the
That You gave me!
I know now that I can't live my
Life without you!
Living here knowing that I
Can still have you in my heart is my
Only joy. I'm sorry I didn't believe in all your
Messengers until it was almost to late; but
I'll try to live the rest of my life for you
God, be with me and help get through these last days!
If You Think...
If you think a love like a mother will exist, there and then
You must have been building castles in the air and thus
Need a medic or an injection to kill that feeling of an outcast-
A shadow of falsehood you’ve been chasing.
Friends like mothers will exist no doubt about that
I'm but particular about if boldly will exist in instant world, where
Sailing through has no backfire or low indignation, where
Right to freedom and possession would not be denied, where
Behind your backs, you would have all sides’ safety
Like the baby in the mother's womb, or the sun in the sky.
A bounty ground, a must be aftermath of the journey on free
Bridge on the cross roads, and lanes, and water, and bushes
Over the mountain; the rock, the valley and the hill, and on the
Troubled memory of liquors, women, demigods and kings of miseries?
Water full of love is only a reservoir for the Creator asides mothers.
I may be viewed as uncivilized or sound barbaric by this logic, but reasons
Will proclaim reality in my tone, stand and modest mood.
“Ease! Be at ease!!” The breeze from the mothers’ bosom’s recollections sway, that
Your mind would seek forgiveness and refuge from her, then the All Forgiver. Then true
Mind will redeem and have the lasting rest of his life, yield to and fulfill mother’s wish.
Note: Mothers addressed here may not necessarily be ones biological mother. It could be he or she who is never sick or tired of listening to you, hearing your plights or problems and helping you proffer solutions to them. He or she never discourages, never over-pampers and pray for your success at all times...
Please visit "About this poem"
Filled with anger
Or lost hope, can't decide.
Running into you, I'd be back at
In my best interest to let it go, but its
Very difficult when my
Ego gets in the way. I want an apology first,
Nothing else. I don't care if you beg or plead. It's
Easy to show up and say you want me back
Somehow I wouldn't believe you
Shows I'm not ready to forgive you
F ailing to do this is simply detrimental to one’s own health.
O ften it’s done as a very last resort before madness sets in.
R eality dictates that vengeance is venial and vindictive.
G oing forward on an ethical and moral journey towards a more sublime goal
I nvolves practice in this humble virtue as well as others.
V erily it is the key to releasing one’s self from a prison of one’s own making.
E ventually, I’m told, practice of the virtue with prayer makes for a happy life.
< Fluff of billowy clouds
Looking like they have Angelic faces
Utterly smiling down on Mother Earth
Forecasting peace for all mankind
Foresakes for all sinners
If this night you suddenly find
you have lost all faith in mankind,
need I say anymore, I care.
A resourceful comrade, I’ll be -a
friend in your dreadful green se-a.
I'm willing to help guide your boat;
sailing wild, can we keep her afloat?
Right now, waves seem brutal, unfair,
behind us spite-filled ships bear down
like dead weights leaving us to drown.
A quick look to heaven reveals
bridge of mercy for such ordeals.
Overwhelmed, I found when despair
troubled me, then I learned to tread
water - a sure hand ‘neath my head.
I know the pardon He can endow;
will faith in mankind help you now?
Ease into this slowly and share
your forgiveness with stormy souls.
Mind, you must give God the controls.

It began as a struggle many years ago
The struggle that only the brave fought for years
It was the dream to them
A dream they wanted to leave for their young
It is today that make the accomplishments of their fight
The fight that thousands sacrifice their lives for
It is today where a free man wanders on earth fearlessly
Today their dream has manifested
As the dawn has come to a nation
A nation that has grown from strength to strength
He walks with his head held up high
Happiness covers his pure innocence
He is a free man of South Africa
Black as coal and strong as the lion
This is the land of all people who lives
And share great history together.
This is the country filled with wonderful people
I love my country
G iven unconditionally, a
R ansom has been paid
A nti-Semitic ignorance could not stop his way
C rucified and he rose , his gift abound today
E ntrust all you have , his love shall heal thy pain
Justified by faith
Every day of my life
So very merciful to me
Unto all who will believe
Saved by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus the Christ
By: Glenna Freeman
In honor of My Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ
Never getting over love is hard. When all your heart wants to do is cry out in pain. Always trying to understand happened that night you walked in and seen your love gone with another. Leaving nothing behind but the pieces of your broken heart.
Making you feel like a criminal of love because of the risk that you took. Just to be together. only to have the world proving you wrong and showing you that no matter what's gifts you give to false love. You can never make it real.
Assume you have to ask questions and you
Can mess up. You
Can apologize and make it up by
Offering to help
Understand a problem and
Never pretend to empathize. Just
Treat people right
Ask to hear both sides of a story
Before making one evil, another inheriting all glory
Illustrate what you preach
Learn why things work
Indecisiveness needs to stop, make up your mind
Trials and tribulations will test your character,
Yield happiness and calm, life will be a delight.
Yesterday I proved to myself that
All of my enemies and even some of
My friends were justified in hating me.
Troubles that I had started
Seemed impossible to rectify.
So I planned on removing myself
Far away from all of them -
Away to the ends of the earth.
Now just a day later, I know
It will never make sense. It
Looks irresponsible to abandon ship
As if troubles ever go away.
Though we try to rationalize them,
They're going to follow us.
Here is how I will face my friends -
To apologize will be hard but I will
Stay the course, run the race and win the prize.
Oh, remorse is so beautiful.
I am sorry and I have come to
Believe - “I am sorry” are the loveliest three words
In the world. They lead to forgiveness -
Yesterday I was wrong.
written for Roy Jerden's Yesterday Acrostic contest
Hold your horses just for a minute
Awaken from a sleep, seems so infinite
Look around you, seek beyond what your eyes' limit
Take the chance to meditate - Quiescence, offer it.
Arose bountiful crimes diverged - evolved
Forgiveness - Generous hearts initiation
Jailed kindness lulled, Music now on play
Quiet, realize, STOP, think
Understand vagues, work out excemptions, yawning ZOMBIE?
Look, listen, love, learn lots
Find for forgiveness, for freedom - FORGIVE
STOP such second - SOUL'S SILENCE.
IF THE SON HAS SET US FREE
WE ARE FREE INDEED
and the people said
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.

I Did Not Mean To Offend You
I Say This With Regret
I Have The Highest Regard For You
… Admire With Deep Respect
I Would Never Insult You
Or Belittle, Or Upset
Not Knowingly, Nor Callously
My Affection and You … Have Met
So, If Our Paths Cross, or Get Lost
Please Forgive, If You Can’t Forget
For The Words Of Your Soul ( Now Silent and Cold )
Still Haunt Me … Even Yet …
Trip to the movies to see ship submerged,
Teasing and torment has been Friday's fare.
First an argument o’er who's to go first,
and not-so-nice nephew pulls brother’s hair.
In revenge, the other bloodies an arm;
loud wailing ensues from crocodile eyes.
It’s time to go home now, they’ve lost their charm.
Six-year old twins – a shipwreck, pint-size.
Resounds in his head.
Until today he
Gave up everything.
And today he
Dug his heals into the
Dirt. He gave it all to give
In. Tomorrow will be worse than what
I think of the years between us and
Little snippets of our journey floods my mind.
Life and all it's roads at times difficult
Allowing us the chance to change, to be remade for the
Last of all our tales shall be of our triumphs-
Ways we conquered our self doubt, our impulses
Always giving way to that better me, better you
Yet you walk these roads with a heavy heart
Soul weary and feet blistered and I say to you
Be not afraid of what s to come
Everyone is given only what he or she can bear
Yes I say to it all - the pain, our tears, the laughter
Our fears, - the joy and all these years between us
Underneath it all there lies our blessing and
Redemption in the form of this friendship
For the mistakes, the errs are not erased but" Our Father In Heaven"
Remember is the sweetest prayer
In it we find the mercy he tempers our punishment
Even as we are wrong, we are in his light
No man can take your soul, so walk
Don't run to the end of your life, when it is done, he is there.
To all wo crave turkey...good appetite and good health!
Utilize your skills in creating charm in a bright dining room.
Round up the best ideas for success, ask if you need help.
Kidding yourself is absurd, get all the help from friends.
Enamor yourself with dinnerware and silverware that match.
Yearn for an athmosphere so warm, cheerful and elegant.
Allow kindness when dealing with kids who spill apple cider.
Nobody should be privileged to say Grace but the host.
Dance afterward with everyone in the decorated living room.
Papa can smoke his cigar, if it doesn't bother the guests.
Unity should be stronger on this day when all thank the Lord.
Major issues about noises, caused by children, should be ignored.
Pretend that Thanksgiving Day is the last one they'll ever see.
Keyboard should play Hymns of thanks, not songs they all like.
Inside the fireplace, the red log crackles reminiscing Thansgivings past.
Nag not when the dog chases the cat under the table...laugh!
Parents should be soft, not harsh...let Thansksgiving be a fun day!
Inside the fireplace the log crackles...reminishing of Thanksgivings past.
Endure the screams and the fights a little longer...no child is an angel.
Say the final prayer of gratitude as everyone bows their heads.
Real positive season
A month of fasting,
Magnanimity, generosity ,and maidenly
A time to give up ugly saying and acts
Am I lucky?
Not sure till the end of it.
Here is where I belong
Here is beside you I shall live
Here we shall make love
Here were our pact live
Here will be our home of joy
I was taken aback by your courage
I quiver as you look at me
Your eyes were blazing like gold
As I abase myself to your figure
Little boast did I have as your smile rack my nerves
Your presence opened many thoughts
The thought that were trapped in my belly button
Here I am
This is I who you once dreamt of in the days and night
This is l that you shared something stronger than stones
This is I who whispered to ear with a harmony voice
This is I that will forever be your guide
Here I am
The time has come for me to hold your hand
This is the time I give you my all
This is our time to show the skies that have seen us.
Yesterday I found a tear stained love letter All the promises how it all would be better
My eyes are very clear and dry now
Troubles of then are troubles of now
Seemed so long ago those days surreal
So I found a letter of tear stained love unsealed Far back in the recesses of my broken heart
Away from the lock and key emotions restart
Now tears flowing growing from a fruitful life
It was not meant that you were to be my wife
Looks can be deceiving giving the benefit of the doubt
As to set it free if it returns it's yours it never was it turns out
Though as cliche as the love crying in the rain
They're with me even today just memories unlike you
Here to stay is another keeping promises away from the blue
To see the tears of joy streaming down my face
Stay awhile witness the arms of a loving embrace
Oh I found a tear stained love letter
I think it is from you trying to make things better
Believe me it was kept all this time with care
In the locket of my heart to one day share
Yesterday I found a letter of tear stained love
And...it means "AWESOME"
Dave - you're rad.
L ife is holistic.

Once upon on a lovers’ lair, love revamps.
Our temperaments in ecstasy are now forever.

Due to the feeling of tension,i remained here and there,
But this sense of being engulfed with sorrow led me nowhere.
So i thought why should i care?
And yes,i got the answer-don"t boggle your mind,that would be fair.
The future prospects and its worry dawn my mind,
But i think,the maker of the world-my god is very kind.
so i left the future of mine at his stake,

I danced around and to my astonishment i found,

Souls are guided by interior circumstances infatuated.
Persons are accountable for own actions devaluated.
Internal guidance is always there in some kind of form.
Reading the right or wrong is what will break a storm.
Indirect words may help with any decisions that inform.
Torch within your spirit will always guide you true.
Our hearts and minds will deliver a softer clue.
Recycle the tribulations that you have lived thru.
Carefully make the right choice in what pursues.
Heal mistakes; forgive yourself, before darkness ensues.
Opens our hearts and our mind
Delivers us from sin of every kind
Savation he gave us for free
Abiding in you and Abiding in me
Victory came when he conquored the grave
Every life he came to save
Saviour of the world
Unique in every way
Strength he gives us to face every day
if the son has set us free we are free indeed
never will he leave us
never will he forsake us
In any case, I am custom to say
My any and every try is
Possible every time. But
On this occasion I must
Say, I can’t see how I am to
Stay. It won’t and can’t work.
It is not to
Be. I must not
Lie. This time is nor like
Every other time. It’s impossible.
Can’t see her face anymore when I think of
her. Not even her eyes.
Everything beyond myher reach, this
each day mundane way of life.
Still, you always told me
each day—each lie.
Back when, well…
And then maybe she’ll live. Perhaps she’ll
Live to be transparent.

She walks with her head down,
She wonders with no purpose,
She has a mother who forgets her,
She has a father who dosnt want her,
She has parents who cant handle her,
What is she to do with herself?
She has two sets of parents,
Neither seem to want her,
She has a big family but,
None have time for her,
She hides her tears,
She hides her pain,
She hides the abuse,
She blocks people out.
This is her legacy ,
This is her story,
This is her life,
This is the girl with no name.
Abortion and Baby Dumping
The umbilical cord you eliminated before my existence
You conceived concealed the gift from its creation
Deceived and destroyed the destiny that was given to the world
Now you asking me, what gives you sleepless night
Don’t be a hypocrite you have been swallowing your own vomit
No-wait we all are at fault because we allowed this to happen in homes and society
Sexually sensitive and spiritually sick
Why open for sexual pleasure and reject responsibility and accountability
The blood of the innocent crying from the ground-souls we have all murdered
Turning girls into holes, dumping babies, chasing pleasure that is under world delusion
Heart full of evil while lips speak love-drinking blood by killing offspring
Outward beauty while mentally incapacitated-lawlessness life, it’s the life they chose
Feeding on lies, faded in freedom, self-will in pleasure, decaying society
While government set the veil – system collapsed and still won’t acknowledge
Sick of psychologists, spiritually blind and morally corrupt-saying do thus at will
Policy is just logic, written words, practically off, wishing the problem is all in their head
Church turned in a business place, wicked theology exploiting the poor-in it for self
While evil and corruption take over the nation – God is the manager allowing evil
Hearts divorced from truth – these painted priests and pastors got real saints misunderstood
Annunciation by media, misleading the nuns, church-good girl lost in lust as love
I feel sorrow in soul, remaining breathless each day
40 babies dumped per month – I wonder how many are aborted
I know your soul is turning cold – knowing all the babies you have aborted and dumped
I know you have excuses just like any other person – no, yes I sympathize with your evil deeds
Heart concealed in subconscious of blood – mind covered by deception of unwanted babies
Giving receiving Remittance of sin Affectionate power Caring always Emanuel
WILL TODAY BRING ME LOVE, WILL TOMORROW BRING ME PAIN
WILL THIS LIFE THAT I LIVE ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME.
WILL MY PRAYERS BE ANSWERED WITH THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF FAITH
WILL TODAY'S PROBLEMS BE THE SAME AS YESTERDAYS.
WILL YOU FORGET I HAVE A LIFE A LIFE THAT INVOLVES YOU
IF YOU SEE THE COLOR IN MY EYES THEY ALWAYS STAY BLUE.
IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES THEN I DIED IN MY SLEEP
AND YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THAT MY HEART WAS TO WEAK
TO WEAK TO FEEL PAIN, CAUSE PAIN DOES EXIST
ALL MY LIFE I HAD ONE WISH.
I WISH WE WERE HAPPY INSIDE A HAPPY HOME
I WISH AROUND YOU I DIDN'T FEEL ALONE.
THIS IS A LOVE POEM, ALSO A SUICIDE NOTE
CAUSE I FELT OUR LIFE NEVER HAD HOPE.
I TRIED TO KILL MYSELF BUT DIDN'T SUCCEED
CAUSE I COULDN'T GO WITHOUT SOMETHING I NEED
THAT SOMETHING WAS FAITH AND I THOUGHT IT WAS HATE
IT WAS ME THAT LEAD YOU, DOWN THE WRONG WAY
I NEVER KNEW CAUSE I DIDN'T LISTEN
YOU NEVER KNEW CAUSE I DIDN'T MENTION
NOW WE LIVE WITH A LIFE, A LIFE THAT REMAINS OPEN
IF YOUR HEART ISN'T GLASS THEN IT SHOULDN'T BE BROKEN
J oined in love an
E ssential surrender,
S aviour of mine
U se me in the midst of your grace
S earch my heart , pure
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...
T he symbol of suffering, shame, disdain

A collaboration-Audrey Carey & #0459587 Jimmy M. Anderson
Gracious thought has been dropped from human inhabitants.
Our hearts have become cold and distant to almost everything.
Deference has no meaning for us or any other human.
Before we can carry onward, we must remember the beginning.
Lessons remembered are the key to our future roads to travel.
Every soul must search inward to see where we are headed.
Success is truly wonderful and we have fulfilled our winning.
Success without faith is gone, and the road less traveled tortures.
America has blessed each one of us from the beginning in faith.
Mercy is upon our leaders, for they have lost the true reality.
Erasing their hearts and minds of the reality, united we stand.
Refuse greed mongers of their desires, replacing with honesty.
Individuality of the representatives was our ancestor’s goal.
Call out God Bless America in truth, faith, freedom, to all.
Anything less will be the end of whatever time we have left.
So good to see you once again.
We could sit and talk about it
Or continue on with the journey
Down this road of entity.
It’s a long way
Before we get there.
Many bridges we will ravage,
Before we come home.
We’ll signify on the way,
There is so much ahead of us
I don‘t want to miss.
Look at those meager souls
Out there in the distance,
They seem so vacant.
Can’t they discern?
Through his eyes they will see tranquility.
To conceive a path on the way.
A passage to convey with immunity
On their way home.
Everyone will want to see.
Surely this, they will miss.
As i turn from the distance
To see you beside me,
My focus seized by a reflection.
The shine of deity
within your eyes.
Darkness has receded,
Skies filled luminous red and purple.
The end of the road is sublime,
Over those gates peer into ecstasy.
Hope to identify her facade.
Cant wait to meet him.
My own sea of rebuttal
Needs to be set in place.
Drifted soul in the shadows
Squint toward divinity.
This road is far too long
To be stricken with reason.
He doesn’t believe you can’t see.
Surely this, you will miss.
Did you know I did like you?
I just didn’t realize what I was doing,
And I was just so stupid to let you go.
Now I just wish that you spend the rest of your life happy,
And that you never again feel the pain I made you feel.
If the days seem too long to bear
You should call on God, he is always there.
Need someone to talk to?
A person who you know will always be true?
Friend, talk to jesus, he will deliver you
I'm struggling with doubt and sorrow
Sailing through this world is harder than I thought it would be
Right in front of me lies tomorrow
Behind me are the mistakes, always taunting me
Like the seprent did to Eve
A woman was walking, searching for "The Healer"
Bridge after bridge she crossed, with no one there to help her
Over and over she fell, growing weaker with every step
Troubled with her sin, she wondered, will God's promise be kept
Water! She found water, and the Master was waiting, and into his arms, the woman lept.
I am the Lord your God, and I'm so glad you found me.
Will I heal you? Of course, my child.
Ease your mind, little one. Your soul is now set free
Your heart has been hurt and you've been sick for a while
Mind you, I'm your father. I've been with you, mile after mile.

C-hrist is the head of my life
H-eaven is my home; I am
R-edeemed by His blood. He has

I-n His grace I am made whole
A-ll my needs are met. For
N-othing is too hard for my God
N-ow faith is the hope that I claim
O-mnipotent and omnipresent is He
T-rusting Him, always is the key
P-erfect in all of His ways
E-verlasting love, shared
R-epentance being available to all
F-ather alone, He is the
E-ver present God
C-hosen and crowned with glory
T-rinity, three in one; He is the
B-eginning and the end. I shall give
U-ltimate prayer and praise.
T-rials and tribulations are the tests
F-orgiveness is our reward. We know that
O-nly God is perfect. In

G-od gives abundant provisions
I-mmanuel being God with us from the

Let all of us remember the truth of Christmas day.
Our god sent his Son upon this Earth, we did pray.
Victims we were of our own predominate selfish way.
Evangelical visitations spread announcements, they say.
Calmness spread over the earth that night with no dismay.
Angels appeared to wise men along with a starlit display.
Many followed the travelers, as they traced a single ray.
Each one bringing gifts of praise, presented where he lay.
Delivering a powerful presence, in clothes tattered and frayed.
Opening hearts and souls, with his power of glory displayed.
Wielding smiles of joy to all that believed the word conveyed.
Nearer to their God, they felt his gift to all, as they all prayed.
Holy One, God's own Son, PIERCED for me
Every sin, put Him there, on that cross
What love, I know not why, SAVING Grace
Alone, apart from God, The Father
Separated, by your sins and mine
Pardoned, by His sacrifice, He GAVE
I, so unworthy, yet so grateful
Everlasting assurance, FINISHED
Restored, through Christ's shed blood, I AM FREE
Conquering death, Jesus ROSE again
Even now, sitting at God's right hand
Day and night, I thank Him, PIERCED for me.
Written on 2/25/2015
Master and Lord, born of such a lowly birth,
You came and lived a human life on earth.
Loved by some, hated by others,
Opposed and doubted by Your own brothers.
Ridiculed and mocked by those You adored,
Despised and rejected - Your words, they ignored.
In agony, You prayed, "Not My will, but Thine."
Soldiers came and took You, by God's design.
Rulers judged You - found You guilty of a crime,
In fury, the angry crowd screamed, "He must die!"
So they beat You, tortured You and called You names,
Eager for blood, they caused You great shame.
Nailed to the cross, for all to see,
You suffered, bled and died for me.
In anguish, Your Father turned away His face,
No tomb of Your own, buried in a rich man's place.
Dutiful friends came to mourn their loss,
Every fear they had was soon given pause.
Emmanuel - God is with us - alive forevermore.
Death has lost it's victory. The grave stings no more.
Be all that you can be in life
Elegance is all written within your life
Applying obedience is the base knowledge of your life
Unique is you’re name
Trust yourself to do well in life
Intellectual is in you and it is part of your life
Fulfill your destiny
Uniformed your life with passion
Love is all that can bring your life in peace
by stanley jean jacques
once there was an old man on a lane
he always had many cats
then he took a train
and went down another lane
In the darkness of all expression
Lives the pain I'll never forget
it's a hunger ripping beneath me
my soul deep with regret
This echo is all around me
It tries to enter my head
The voices of illusion
telling me that I am dead
How do I find my doorway
With no guidance by my side
You were all that I needed
You were my morning light
Darkness is my best friend now
And the room is cold as ice
This feeling of loneliness
that surrounds me
Is my punishment of life
Mistakes are something that we always do wrong,
then we finally realize that they are strong,
not knowing what we have done,
just holding onto it one by one,
Leting go is the hardest part,
when it was all your fault from the start,
Cody of you I ponder
Obessed with concern and wonder
Desiring a good life and joy
Yearning for you to be a happy boy
Just come close to me
Understand my desire for thee
Standing beside you all the way
Thinking there will be a better day
I love you and always will
Now and untill God calls me and then better still
Head scrambled, bejangled, and no longer together.
Everlasting you said, but nothing lasts forever.
Letting me think that, was a trick but not clever.
Percentages say you’re the reason of my endeavor.
Laugh as you will its all good.
Our time dwindles at the rate it should.
Still you’d stop the time if you could.
To bad this is real life, or you would.
From the depths of despair, I cry out,
Only You, God, can take away my doubt.
Regret, guilt and shame are what I feel,
Grief and pain, but You can heal.
I repent, and turn away from my sin.
Viciously desperate, I invite You in.
Enter my heart, renew my mind.
Now I leave my past behind.
Except the fact, He died for all our sins.
Almighty Gods’ Son showed us love.
Sincerity of the most precious gift for all,
Taking our sins upon the cross to bear,
Enveloped love in his daring passion.
Rebirth for all from a single, simple belief
Life is precious, but the hereafter is more.
Inside us all is a choice, we make alone.
Veraciously, we are upon the threshold.
Each one chooses, do not deny, betray or hide.
Say these words, “I believe he died for me“.
This is how a girl should be treated!
To every guy that's said, "Sex CAN wait"
To every guy that's said, "You're beautiful."
To every guy that was never too busy to drive across town to see her.
To every guy that gives her flowers and a card when she is sick or down.
To every guy who has given her flowers just because thats how he rolls.
To every guy that said he would die for her.
To every guy that really would.
To every guy that did what she wanted to do.
To every guy that cried in front of her. ....
To every guy that she cried in front of...
To every guy that holds hands with her.
To every guy that kisses her with meaning.
To every guy that hugs her when she's sad.
To every guy that hugs her for no reason at all.
To every guy who would give their jacket up for her.
To every guy that calls to make sure she got home safe.
To every guy that would sit and wait for her for hours just to see her for ten
To every guy that would give his seat up...
To every guy that just wants to cuddle.
To every guy that reassured her that she was beautiful no matter what.
To every guy who told his secrets to her.
To every guy that tried to show how much he cared through every word and every
To every guy that thought maybe this could be the one.
To every guy that believed in her dreams.
To every guy that would have done anything so she could achieve them.
To every guy that never laughed at her when she told him her dreams.
To every guy that walked her to her car and opened the door.
To every guy that gave his heart.
To every guy who prays that she is happy even if you are not with her.
Not many girls appreciate nice guys anymore...
And because of this, there are not many left out there...
I guarantee 90% of the men on your page will not repost this cuz they care more
about their image
If you are a nice guy repost this with:
"This is how every girl should be treated."
If you are a girl that thinks every guy should treat a girl this way
repost this with: "To Every Guy
Tell me again father in Heaven, why I must die for their sins.
Hearing your voice, shall prepare my way upward to you.
Early this year you said, I would be with you so very soon.
You told me, I would be sacrificed for all their sins on earth.
Kindness and love, is all I ever give here, to all I have met.
Now I must die, so they will live again, lest they forget.
Our love, father, is the greatest gift, that we share with all.
Who would be the traitor, denier; others will just let me go.
Now they judge me, send me to prison; force me to break.
Only you my father in Heaven understand their mistake.
They know not what they do to their savior, your son.
Whosoever believes, that I suffered on the cross for them?
Hear after and beyond, shall never parish from thine eyes.
Along shall have a place in your kingdom forever more.
They know not what they do, these torturers upon me.
Tell me again father, as of now, they know not what they done.
Hear my prayers my lord and father, I give my life for them.
Each one who believes in what I have done, preparing way.
Yet, this humanity now, they know what they < must > do.
Dear father and lord of mine, I forgive, what they have done.
Our love together shall await, choice is theirs for what to do.
Shelter here sweet child of fragile soul.
Take refuge from those raging
Rapids of life, threatening to
Overpower and drown you in misery.
Navigate your way past the taunting
Ghosts of past regrets and
Turn to Me once more.
Open the swollen eyes of your sorrow
Weary one and come hither.
Embrace My forgiveness and fear not;
Run to Me and I will welcome you home.
A love, a feeling that is locked away for so long that you forgot it was there.
A love you thought you shouldn't be felt, a sheet of guilt to feel for someone else.
Sacred to let myself be happy, wondering if i deserve to be.
A love that was locked away and now I am free to find the key to unlock that love
to let it fly.
A love that i know you feel.
A love that happened from the start.
A love that sets us apart.
Alabaster cries of the morning dove
Castles crowned with a saviors love
Ransomed Jewel of the purest blood
Opening the heart watering with wondrous possibilities
So it is here slightly bent but not broken
Shoes unworthy to be loosed gambled away
These that carried peaceful news were pierced too
Onward to the cold, cold ground
Bringing truth and forgiving love to the fatherless
Excellent is his spirit holy is his name
A lost world to save gushing forth from the grave bringing new life
Risen to plead for you and me
My faithful king reigning in glory rightfully yours
Your love so vast moving upon all thy creation
God fairer than ten thousand times ten thousand
Oh great is thy compassion waiting for the precious fruit of the earth
Deliverer of souls and all that are oppressed
Happiness is what you take away from your life as good.
All things must have a plus and a negative to survive.
Prophecy says God allowed evil to exist, destroy it he could.
Pure goodness without evil will someday arrive.
I wish that only positive things were plausible now.
Never to know hunger, pain, any suffering any more.
Each of us would never know sadness, you say Wow!
Since there would be no negative, how would it score?
Since only joy existed, we would not know of contentment.
I do not think god had this planned for us while on Earth.
Salvation is yours of worth, your release from this abatement
Listen you can allow hatred and anger to imbed itself into your life.
Only it will grind your heart into a chaotic sword that will rip apart.
Vengeance will eat at your soul developing torment in every way.
Eventually there will be no joy that enters or spreads from your heart.
All things that happen are usually not set out to hurt anyone at all.
No one has that much evil within them to plan for these attacks.
Doom and gloom are things we fear and they could inherit your call.
Forgetting happens with time, or at least lessons as years fade.
Our way of thinking upon each passing day brings either joy or hate.
Realizing this we can learn to forgive others misgivings made.
Greatness is not measured by relentless abhorrence forever.
Individuals make bad judgments, since before the age of times.
“Vengeance is mine said the Lord” not yours to endeavor.
Each of us now has the charge to love and not hate in crimes.
Now better than anytime before we need to learn this straight away.
Each person has the capability to choose the path they have to take.
Serving to bring happiness and love until their last and dieing day.
Securing forgiveness in our mind and heart upon each day, we wake.
Amish families weep as they bury their
Murdered daughters; those poor
Innocent little girls torn from their lives and
Sacrificed on an altar of self-pity by a suicidal man.
Heavy hearted we watch these quiet people who
Take nothing from us and ask for less,
Readily forgive without question the man responsible.
Asking not for vengeance or justice, but also
Going to his wife and children in peace;
Embracing them in the love of God and
Demonstrating the true meaning of forgiveness.
Yes, I believe they shame us.
Hurting is he?
Until now the pain was all mine.
Ripples of anguish fill me even now.
Thrusting their way into my life.
Imploring my heart to remember.
Never allowing my soul Forget.
Giddiness fills me as I see him suffer.
Out in the sun
All I think about is your radiance shining down on me
All around me
Is your flawless love.
Love me tonight.
If it's only for tonight
So be it.
At least I loved you.
It's better then not having you at all.
Even though in my dreams
We would have
C_ourageous, consistent, constant, constrained by Love.
H_onest, holy, humble, holding fast to the Word of God.
R_ighteous, reborn, regenerated, renewed and restored.
I_nstructed in righteousness, immortality assured.
S_anctified, sincere, submissive, self-controlled, secure, saved by grace through
T_ruthful, thankful, thoughtful, trusting God's Will to be done in His name.
I_mperfect but daily seeking for perfection, improving inwardly by the Spirit.
A_nointed, appointed, an holy vessel of praise and thanksgiving.
N_urturing, noble, new life with and in Christ-
S_tanding, stedfast, immoveable, always abounding in the Word and Work of the
God of all Creation and Christ Jesus our Lord.
I look Into my glass.
Viewed or wasting grace
Set, "would God It came to light
My Heart had melloy as rhyming
By Champagne grown fill cold to Me.
Could loney wait my endless rest with equanimity.
Time, to make me a poem understandable lines
Steals, lets part abide; and shakes this Champagne a toast

Walk this earth with words of worth you stand for valiant bound by eternal balance
those who stand behind you will follow you and lay claim in battle for you. Like an
untouched vessel your convictions can with stand untrusting conditions and
external indecision. Born with ruling purpose forgotten by sorrow it is your
motto:"To face a new tomorrow", injustice to fix justice is why your people place
pride close to a glim in a troubled eye. A soldier of fortune wont give way to
crimes of epic proportion you cast a shadow and never will your grace fall
shallow it is your mission to place life in the direct path of certain strife. In your
gods light so be it if you die by Satan's knife your time was well spent rest in
