The Would Be Poet

I have; committed some crimes in my life
But none worse than one gives me strife

With every line wrote, you clearly know it

But: it is my sin and total...Read More

My Soul Mate
I will never believe that, 
mere luck brought us together.
We came into each others lives,
When we needed each other the most.
Suddenly every day became brighter,
The troubles we faced, a little lighter.
There was a mutual and beautiful bond
Between us from the...Read More

Her eyes so deep, my soul consumes

In a Tiny Rustic Cabin
In a tiny, rustic cabin
In the hills of Tennessee
Is where my weary mother
Bravely gave birth to me.

In a tiny, rustic cabin
In the hills of Tennessee
Is where I patiently waited,
‘Till someone married me.

The Journey
Smaller stones
breaking down
larger stones, 
life is a deluge
of abrasions;

flesh no match
for streaming

clouds gathering
becoming storms--
they know the ritual,
and time’s eroding power

(Yet, no one can convince me
that love is not omnipotent--

and that I, somehow, am
not part of her
eternal flow)

Pushed by waters,
molded by...Read More

You are The One
And divisions in Your Name,

And killings in Your Name,
You are The Merciful 
And hate is everywhere.

Human story
When guns become toys 
And innocence stolen,
When violence is a big joy
And kindness forgotten, 
The tears will be very warm.

When money controls minds 
No charity and no mercy, 
When souls become blind 
Not feeling Eternity, 
The prayers will be very...Read More

He's Able
Author Dana Redricks
December 4, 2019

God is able
He's able to do more
than we can imagine.
He's able to give more
than this world can give.
He's ways are
He's love is indescribable
and everlasting.
He's able, he's able
to make way where there
seems to be no way.
