A Daydream

What if I was Esther and named queen?
Could I be beautiful, brave, and bold?
I would—at least in my daydream.

Pianos would ne’er need practicing,
Mother would not hover and scold,
What if I was Esther and named queen?

My face would shine with love all agleam,
I would drink from goblets made of gold,
I would—at least in my daydream.

Death would befall all Haman’s team,
Victory for my people would unfold,
What if I was Esther and named queen?

I would ruin Haman’s odious scheme,
Righteousness and justice I would uphold,
I would—at least in my daydream.

Lord, I can just picture the scene,
I would lavish thanks uncontrolled,
I would—at least in my daydream.
What if I was Esther and named queen?

The Lord

We cannot go wrong with God on our side
He is a present help in our time of need
The Lord is our helper, our strength, our guide

In the word of the Lord we shall abide
We shall err not from faith nor covet greed
We cannot go wrong with God on our side

He was beaten for us and crucified
Exalt Him! He’s worthy; fall on your knees
The Lord is our helper, our strength, our guide

The Lord is the groom and we are the bride
Magnify his goodness in word and in deed
We cannot go wrong with God on our side

Trust in the Lord; in Him, your troubles confide
Be of good courage, the Lord will be pleased
The Lord is our helper, our strength, our guide

Whatever the need the Lord will provide
To impurity and lasciviousness take heed
We cannot go wrong with God on our side
The Lord is our helper, our strength, our guide

Worst Enemy Ever

War for the souls of mankind rages
Serpent of old, against God he debates
'Tween heaven and hell the battle wages.

Father of lies and accuser of the saints
Insatiable desire to destroy the human race
War for the souls of mankind rages.

Hidden fury flashes through evil eyes
Thunder and lightning in blackened skies
'Tween heaven and hell the battle wages.

Hungry to devour, he crouches in wait
Spiritual armor he cannot penetrate
War for the souls of mankind rages.

Appearing as Lucifer, he attempts to create
An aura of light, in his heart is pure hate
'Tween heaven and hell the battle wages.

Stand firm in Christ, do not hesitate
Do not be deceived or it may be too late
War for the souls of mankind rages
'Tween heaven and hell the battle wages.

Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent - 21

Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 21

Would Hindus see in Paris kill Siva’s* will
Who’s show is this: Puppeteer or puppet’s
Kali-Yuga* dragging hind legs to standstill

Callow kids spray lead to warn not infidel
For what glory of own faith’s idle pets
Would Hindus see in Paris kill Siva’s will

What kills: finger on trigger or divine will
ISIS hand or lead Kalashnikov jets
Kali-Yuga dragging hind legs to standstill

Piecemeal World War III Papal wisdom mill
Did not racial hatred collide with tenets
Would Hindus see in Paris kill Siva’s will

Some people seek to dress world in their frill
Are Crusaders fratricidal Semites
Kali-Yuga dragging hind legs to standstill

Andromeda clash through Milky Way spill
Lest ISIS pound Kali-Yuga with jets
Would Hindus see in Paris kill Siva’s will
Kali-Yuga dragging hind legs to standstill

•	Siva: Hindu Trinity of the Godhead Brahman
                   composed of Brahma (Creator), Vishnu (Preserver)
		And Siva (Destroyer)
•	Kali-Yuga: According to Hindus, the “Iron Age” (the last phase of human existence), having commenced with the Mahabharatha (the Great War on February 18, 3102 B.C.E.)
will come to an end in less than 430000 years. – time enough to shoot the Milky Way to pulp.

Down the Rabbit Hole

I wish I had just said no
the first time I tasted sin
It's like going down a rabbit hole.

I thought it would help me reach my goal
like a genie from Aladdin
I wish I had just said no.

Sins to make life less dull
Sins to make a friend
I wish I had just said no.

Can't stop, can only go
I'm worse than I've ever been
It's like going down a rabbit hole.

God, please take control
Make me a saint again
I wish I had just said no
It's like going down a rabbit hole.
