I dance

7 may 2012 4:50 PM

I dance in the sunlight 
I dance in the rain

I dance when I'm happy
I dance when there's pain

Because it frees my soul
And it lets me go
to a higher place
to a higher praise
With You ohhhh with You
that's right

I dance to remember
I dance to forget

I dance in a dream land
I dance in reality 

Because I dance for You 
And You take me there 
to that higher place 
to that higher praise.....with You

Mothers love 
Mothers have patience
 Mothers remember when and understand
 Mothers protect and nurture
 Mothers listen and impathize
 Mothers correct and explain
 Mothers play and teach
 Mothers hold and be quiet
 Mothers laugh and smile
 Mothers cry and pray
 Mothers smile 
Is this you or someone you should be.
 Mothers are like dads they make mystakes too 
But they always love you no matter what you do
Happy Mothers day Aunt Virgie and thank you for all you are

My uncle my dad

This is for my Uncle Steve 

17 june 2012 10:13 am
Happy fathers day Uncle Steve
 I was not yours but you raised me
It was a very confusing time
 and most of the time my heart was blind
As I grow older with children of my own
 I understand more of you and our home
It was a great responciblity and charity from you
 As you took me in, it was the right thing to do
Children of your own and a son passed on
 You worked day by day and made me your son
It was hard and I threw my fits
 but still you kept me and never called quits
I am sorry for the bad things I did and said
 I am sorry for the times I caused you to bow your head
The grouchys and the tired times the stress lines on your face
 I understand now very clearly as I run my own race
As dad we do the best we can 
to provide and protect with a steady hand
But things go wrong and we make mistakes
 but such is life those are just the breaks
We fall we fail 
We get back up and prevail
But good time are priceless and preciouse in heart
 They give us incentive to make a fresh start
Just as you did time and time again
 I push on as dad husband and freind
Thank you so much for being my dad
 The best Uncle to have and could have ever had
I hope that you are resting in peace and I hope to see you with our Lord in the east

In memory of Mathew Herman Vain killed 1970

23 may 2013 8:36 am

Mathew Herman Vain
A child who had no name

Was killed before he was born
His cell from his kidneys was torn

Cloned and named HEK293
Those cells they use to satisfy you and me

They use it in processes to make vaccines
And process for artificial flavors obscene

He had no name as from his mother he was torn
And until now has not been officially mourned

I gave him his name so all will remember
This was a real child that science dismembered

So people can be vain
And glutony can rein

The wise fool

Do I write to pass the time of day?
Do I write to receive accolade?

Is it from my need that I share with you?
Or is it because I care that I do what I do?

What keeps me trying?
What keeps me from dying?

Sometimes I wonder and come unglued.
Sometimes I fail and don't know what to do.

Am I wise or just a fool?
Is it vanity to profess to be Gods tool?

God said He would use the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.
God uses me and I am confounded so a wise fool am I.

from the bottom of my cup

5 July 08 12:55 pm 

From the bottom of my coffee cup to the bottom of my heart.

The coffee is hot when I take my first sip I smell its strong aroma as it flows over my lip.
  The steam warms my eyes as the fog burns from my mind.  
And there is dark bitter taste, acquired and wonderful.  
There are times when I wish I had not taken the first drink and then when there’s none in 
the house I long for the wonderful roasted perfume to fill the air and its caffeinated warmth.  
  I walk around as I’m half through the cup and my thoughts return from fantasy and 
forgetfulness of last nights slumber and reality again takes control. 
 My bowels awake and morning habits start and my mind divides into its daily groups take my 
meds where do I need to go what do I need to do and how am I going to get them all done.
  I see my eyes and then my face staring back from the bottom of my cup and then my ears 
start their job and I hear my two darling girls and my eyes start to see 
what is really important to me and I see them deep in the bottom of my heart.

We can't unite Yes we can

Denomination can be aggravation
Ritual religion an abomination
They are wrong and going to hell
Just how wrong no one can tell
They wear suits the stuck up snobs
Don't let them in they dress like slobs
They think were going to escape one day
They think heavens here and here we'll stay
They'retoo fancy and too rich
They're too poor and can't help a stitch
They just don't believe whats right
They need to stare into our light
What us join with them you are crazy indeed
We can't join with them no matter the need
They are unclean and we are not
We'll stay in the shade while they go where it's hot
Sister A did this brother B did that
He's way to skinny she's way to fat
We're not the same color
We don't like the same flavor
We can't be together
Even though we have the same Savior
Divided we are and divided we will fall
Christ didn't die for US He died and rose for ALL.

The wild wood flowers

6 Sept 2011  9:00 PM

Lay me down in the wild wood flowers
Where as a child I would play for hours and hours

Leaping as a lamb strengthening my legs
Exploring as Long John Silver and his old wooden peg

My friend she would come and together we’d play 
I’d crawl like a lion and stalk her like prey

Then pretending to drink tea first her then me
The grandest pick nick that no one can see

The sun would get hot and we would take a dip
In the sea of many colors we splashed and flipped

Tired from all the floundering around
We’d find a shade and then lay down

Staring at the sky as we rest and day dream
Finding shapes in the clouds wondering what they might be

My Sister and I grew apart through the years
Growing up and running out to face our fears

She has her place and I have mine
Misunderstandings are like prison time

Waiting for the call of reprieve
That lightens family hearts and sets them free

I reminisce of the by gone day 
When in the wild wood flowers we would play

Melancholy times

13 July 2011 8:50 pm

Melancholy times are these
Sex and drugs and so called reality tv

Teaching children what young adults should know
Then watching them die and putting them on a show

Pervert them while they are little and young
Then keep them under the camera gun

Show them sex and give them drugs
Put them in rehab and sweep them under the rug

I love tv its not that bad
Even though they show a daughter being raped by dad

We can't beat them so might as well join them
Enjoy the poison and fall beside them

Music is my life you say
But your music preaches death and decay

It isn't that bad our parents used to say
Now look how not that bad has turned out today


You are blind and deaf and going the wrong way
Stop drinking that poison and throw it all away

But alas my family and I are poisoned too
We are not aligned the way we are supposed to

I am awake but they are not
It puts me in a terrible spot

I have to stand and stand I will
And throw out this poison so my family will heal

Todays been rough

Feeling so tired and my nerves are wired
Freinds dog barking mine whineing my teeth grinding
First of the month pay the bills do repairs losing more hair
Middle of the month broke again grab a piece of paper and try to clear my mind with 
my pen
Heart pounding it wants out head swelling on the vurge of exsplodeing
Nerves so tight about to pop I just wish this spinning would stop
I am gratefull for what I have but my family is stressed and I am dad
I feel every thing that they go through and with out my wifes support I don't know 
what to do
I help others who are hurting too I hear from God and tell what He said to do
But my own will not hear me they brush me aside I am dad arn't I supposed to be 
their guide
I don't rule with an iron hand I don't force myself I try to understand
I don't let them do what will hurt them and us I try to exsplain and not raise a fuss
But pention money is always short and I feel like a bum because I can not support
I'm getting futher and further behind and my family is pulling further away I feel like 
I am losing my mind
In this world I do have trouble and I get down in the dirty rubble
Father hears me and He knows it is hard He knows it hurts me like glass shards
I need to be patient I need to be calm He won't let us fall from His palm
Better times are comeing of this I am sure opportunity will come Knocking and I will 
answer the door
