I have motivations both lost and intense
and ponder whether to live a valid life
of faded lonely desire or wallow in a pretense
of desperate empty joy in her pallid strife?

Embarrassed faces don’t forgive.
Sinking into a bloody death,
Show real love next time and
Start feeling the open passion.
Stop the natural fear and,
Sacrifice the stress.

Working For Less

Working For Less
Dr. James E. Martin
©March, 2014

He’s working now for less
And under a ton of stress.
Many asked him why
He didn’t simply fly
And relinquish the casual dress.


Short Stress poem by Dzana Madagu| Details |

Like a Drink Offering

So is the life of a Christian
Poured out, like sweet wine
From the wine press of trials and temptations
The stress
From the press
Produces the flow
That gives another’s life a glow.
