A Weakness among us

When the rain falls from
Heavens that God created,
we accept through Faith.

When a story's told 
of long ago we doubt, Oh  
Ye of little faith ..

Oh the cock may crow
but hens deliver the goods...
more to life than sex.

To try to hide from our own

Tranquil waters beyond dusk
When she does not cry.

Say it now!!!

Give me my life back
Satan release your grip—now!
God’s love—can’t touch that!


Now believe it
Continue to live by it
Let it manifest!

Buoyant Power, Seas Of Weak

The small pebble  sinks,
The Huge steel ship floats and sails,
lost and  found in waves.

Wait For Me

Do not leave me now
I am here by your side and...
Heaven will wait dear

Standing still head's up
Retrospect greatest pitfalls 
Mass consciousness whim 

Wandering till dawn
Waiting brave for the result
Less breathe heartless beat

Until the mind soar
Now is inexplicable
Sufferings indeed

People grim anew
For the best of all Juries
Render canny nod

Continued service
Captivated voter's wit
Last laugh never ends.

Senior Moment?

How is it that I

Can forget the objective

Before I get there?

Writer's Note:

No, I'm not a senior (not even close) so I don't have any excuse for this dilemma!

Being One

Glitters spread all over
Seeking reflections amidst
becoming steadfast

Long lost better half
Reunite even afar
Sharing out fragments

Standing still staring 
Beyond space and time searching
A spark that mislead

Now after decades
Attracting as one fellow
When moments unfold.

'Grow fainter'

our doubts fade away when our focal point becomes positivity

Copyright © Wilma Neels

never to speak much
actions have louder voices...
bottled up feelings

smiles never reach eyes
sunshine facade, cheerful masks~
cracks begin to show

heart only takes much
all but ready to explode--
tick tock, bomb goes off

blows to soul, battered
freedom beckons, chains broken--
true smiles: "I'm leaving."

**for Paula's Say now, what you couldn't say then contest

A caring One

A caring one is more 
Than sweet fragrance,
Even when sweet fragrance ends,
The caring one remains...

Violinist Composition

I hear the straw hum
stretched chords groan and snag my heart

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire
