THERE AIN'T NO PEWS IN HELL

THERE AIN'T NO PEWS IN HELL

When you gonna come, sinner man?
When you gonna mend your sinful way?
When you gonna change-pray tell?
There ain't no pews in hell!

You ride by the church cussing and fussing
ignoring the church bell
Better come in now
There ain't no pews in hell!

The pews in churches these days
tend to be filled
on Mother's Day and Easter
or when a relative is killed.

Poor sinner
Rich sinner 
Better get compelled
Ain't no church
Ain't no salvation
There Ain't No Pews 
in Hell

MISS HATTIE - THE SOUL TOUCHER

MS. HATTIE:  THE SOUL TOUCHER

Her kindness kindled the soul,
Her sense of dignity and brilliance
Permeated the classroom
Inciting logic and wit
That only a “thinker” could endure

She plunged forth in strident awe as though
Learning about God were all there was to life.
Her smile engulfed the hearts of her students
And evoked an intrigue for enlightenment. 

O, the mystery of the Soul Toucher, 
How well she proselytized us into believing 
that all things were possible to the 
“thinker” and the “doer” 

She taught with providence 
as she subtly glided about our gray matter, 
uniting the hemispheres 
so as to unite hearts 
daring us to become 
the sole proprietors of our destinies.

TOUCH MY TEARS, TOUCH MY SOUL

TOUCH MY TEARS, TOUCH MY SOUL

My Tears
overflow my eyelids
stream down my face
from the heart of my soul
A visible expression
of my inner laments and joys

My Tears - my soul liquefied
My Tears - the dictator
and victim of my emotions
Powerful, powerless,
warrant pity, love and trust

My Tears - presently restrained
only to exude later
abundantly
in my moments of solitude

My tears
assuage my sorrows
cause my fears to panic
soothe my pains of happiness
appease my anger

Touch my tears, and you
Touch my soul
