Trust

To trust you is to cast upon you all my cares,
Relying on your compassion and infinite ability to meet my needs, fulfill my desires and handle my affairs.
Unwavering in my stand, I am
Settled to endure for perpetuity,
Taking your word as my only surety.

See

Salivating,
Enticed by what appears to be a delectable delight.
Eager to partake; the temptation, I do not fight.

Desire

Devoutly consumed by acquiring the prize,
Ever focused singularly are my mind and heart's eyes.
Situations arise to test the solidity of my hold.
Internal struggles heighten as time passes without the glimmering goal.
Reaching for what is still yet to be, faith remains the
Evidence of things yet to see.

Test

Test to see if a desire is true.
Does it wait even though the time of expected manifestation seems long overdue?
As compromises arise, does it stand firm, or has it been withdrew?
Does it remain after every opposition has come hitherto?

Just Say No

It's so easy to just say, "no,"
When you are not in the throe
Of passion; but when the heat is on and every urge in your body says "go,"
Can you still say, "No"?
Why wait until it's two
Against who?
It's hard enough to fend him off, but yourself as well?
The fire you're playing with can land yourself in hell:
Broken heart, unplanned pregnancy, broken dreams, disease, ended life.
For a moment of pleasure? That's too high a price!
So say, "No,"
Before you go
Down the road that leads to destruction.
You know the guideposts along the way: peer pressure, foreplay, intoxication,
Just to name a few.
But I don't have to tell you.
Listen to your inward voice:
The one that helps you make the right choice.

I Want It All

I ask for totality but you give me a part
And expect that I should be satisfied.
You misunderstand.
So stand still and listen, for I shall explain.
Your fa├žade will never do;
For what I desire must come from the heart:
And I desire all your heart can give.
So expose all you did withdraw and make unavailable to me,
For it is that which I require.
Fill my treasure trough or else be desolate.

Count the Cost

If you have a desire,
Make a plan and count the cost.
Give account for every penny
Lest the entire project soon be lost.

Keep your focus on the purpose
That you have planned and set,
Lest other wants attract your eyes
And you soon forget.

If you do not work to gather,
Then your efforts are for naught;
And you only cause to scatter
The little you have got.

If you do not work with me,
Then you work against,
Causing us to part our ways
Now or in a time hence.

The choices that you make today
Will have a consequence.
So consider well your actions
With due diligence.

Learn

You tried to tend a fire
Then smothered out the flame.
You watched me stir the embers
And revive the flame again.

There are some things that I know well and I am apt to teach,
But only to another who is apt to learn.
If you play with fire,
You will soon get burned.

If you do not know its ways,
Fire can get out of control;
Then the price you pay
Will be a hefty toll.

Rag Doll

I get my rag doll when I want to play;
And when I'm done, I put her down.
But when I want to play again,
I know where she is found.

This one thing you need to know;
You cannot come and go,
For I am not your rag doll
And not held in your depot.

A Rose

A rose pressed between the pages of a book,
That’s where I’ll find you.
The time we spend together makes the memories of tomorrow.
You are my first love.
The things we do shall always be “the first.”
And should there ever be another,
He’d be compared to you.
So let’s set a standard that none could ever meet,
A love so strong, so lasting, so memorable, so sweet.

Lice on Mice

Lice on mice.
Fleas on Fluffy.
Even crabs have grabbed
A hold on Musty.

Be careful where you run.
Be guarded where you stay.
Be mindful of places
That you choose to lay.

Be wary of the people
With whom you associate.
Don't let just anyone pass
Through your pearly gate.

Lice, crabs, fleas, HIV and STD's
Don't discriminate.
They'll infect anyone
And seek to procreate
On one being spread to another:
So watch out lest you end up with
A dirty m----- f-----.

First Steps

I've lifted you from the ground
And steadied you with my hand.
Now it is time to let you go
And allow you to take your stand
On your own two feet:
To make your first steps alone.
This is your journey and your destiny.
The path before you is your own.

I know that if I let you go,
You may stumble and you may fall;
But I know that you will rise again
And walk among us all.
There was a time for me to help,
But that was for a season:
To see you stand and walk alone
Was the purpose and the reason.

Your sparkling eyes may become sullen
And tears your face may wear
As you stand in fear wondering
How to get from here to there.
At first I will be standing near
Urging you to come.
Afterwards, you will be confidently moving
Without coaxing from anyone.

Organism

I must have swam in fresh water
Or entered some infested habitat
Because I have an organism attached to me.
And I just didn't fathom that.

Whatever was spewing from its mouth
Must have some kind of antiseptic;
Because I couldn't feel its presence:
Too gullible, should be more skeptic!

While I was daydreaming,
It was connecting with my heart
And sucking out my blood
Like I was some culinary art.

My nourishment was feeding it
Instead of feeding me.
My bank account was nearly empty
While its smile was gratuity.

I suppose its plan was to stay
Until it was quite full
Then to go away
With another who'd fall for its bull.

But I just paused to take a look
Because I wasn't feeling quite well.
That's when I discovered it
And understanding rang my bell.

There it was:
Its teeth sunk deep into my flesh.
It had best get ready:
It's about to get a thresh!

What Makes Me Smile?


sunsets
campfire
ocean waves
rain shower
baking bread
girl power!
children playing
blooming flower
delicious food
singing choir
book that does inspire
chimes of a bell tower
drinks at happy hour
lime and whiskey sour
man whom I admire
man with staying power
kite flying higher and higher
girls dressed in fine attire
tight rope walker on high wire
these are things that I desire

Shout Now!

Trials come manifold.
Grief runs to take hold.
Tears, they flow like a river from my face.
I am comforted by God's healing grace.
In a bottle, my God stores all my tears.
My prayers are heard by his attentive ears.
My high priest, touched by my infirmity,
Brings me rest among this calamity.
Suffering and pain shall not go to waste
But to produce my good, they move in haste.
Weeping may endure, lasting all the night.
But when the morning comes, it does take flight
And joy enters in.
My heart sings again.
In the midst of trials, joy's my possession.
God's praise and worship is my expression.
Unspeakable joy, full of his glory,
Is my testimony and my story.
The joy of the Lord shines through all my tears.
The joy of the Lord, lived through all my years.
Joy of the Lord, in the days of waiting.
My breakthrough shall find me celebrating.
My name, written in the Lamb's book of Life!
I am bethrothed to be Christ's loving wife!
I have so much reason to sing and dance;
And so, I do so with exuberance.
The Lord is my Deliverer, Healer,
My Provider, Protector, and Savior.
By his redeeming grace, I am made whole.
I'm given everlasting life and salvation for my soul.
Lips, sing God's praises continually!
Mouth, shout with triumph and with jubilee!
For I know how the end is gonna be;
I shall have a glorious victory!

Repentance

Dead leaf falls from tree.
Leaves accumulate on ground.
Green grass cannot thrive.

Dead leaves are removed.
Sunlight shines on naked soil.
Grass is tall and dense.

Gossip

Poison fumes fill space.
People rushing to escape.
Hesistant ones die.

I Agree

Today I touch your heart and see
Your desire hid there and agree
That it be made manifest,
That you pass the test
Of time and circumstance
To prove your want is not perchance,
But for real.
And so with zeal
I entreat my God above
To fill your life with all you love.

Precious Memories

Precious memories of my youth
Will surely last forever,
There in the pages of my mind.
You and I together.
Everything we do
Shall be written down.
Love’s first kiss or love’s first heartache
In its pages shall be found.
So let us carefully choose
The actions we will take,
Because what we do today
Are memories we create.

Continuous Force

Many faces yet one people.
Many feet yet one stand:
Together in unity, love and peace
With our fellow man.

Having all men working with one purpose
And speaking with one voice,
The impossible becomes possible
And success becomes our choice.

Every obstacle is surmountable
And every problem is resolved
Without hatred, strife and prejudice,
When every man is harmoniously involved.

As touching any matter
Collectively as one
And agreeing to the outcome
We shall see it done.

A single man’s self-focus
Becomes a cancerous growth
In the body of mankind
And leads to the death of both.

Jointly, we rise above life’s circumstances:
Divided, we shall fall.
Every man must be willing to sacrifice,
Even his life, for the good of all.

Let the strong man lend a hand
To those who are weak,
That all may link together
To make our chain complete.

A man is not an enemy
Of another man.
Collectively we are one body.
Assembled, we are one man.

Our war is against the thoughts and beliefs
That cause us to see as other than our self
Another who is our brother
On this our common shelf.

Let us put on our armor
And come to our defense
To guard our heart and mind:
Allowing no offense.

A greater peace
Shall abide.
Our love,
Our brother’s sin shall hide.

Cooperatively, we shall open wide
The doors that once were closed
And enter in as a whole
Forever unopposed!

An object once in motion,
Without opposition, cannot be stopped.
Let indivisibility be the position
That we all adopt.

Start Reciting

The bank doors are open
When you don’t need a dime;
And a host of gentleman caller’s
Offer a glass of wine.
You are the opening act
And the theatre is packed.
But to your demise,
Should a circumstance arise,
You’ll hear the audience say,
“Get out of the way!”
As they race toward the exit.
Did someone just yell, “FIRE!”?
Must have;
‘Cause it’s on the evening news wire
Being broadcast around the world.
And girl,
Do you think your man is at your side?
He was the first one out the door!
He didn’t want to get trampled to the floor.
You thought he had the word “man” defined,
But when push came to shove,
He flew out like a dove.
And it didn’t show
What he claimed to know.
You’re dead broke,
Standing there looking like a joke.
Better start reciting your monologue,
‘Cause there sure ain’t gonna be no dialogue.

In the Midst of the Sea

I walk in the midst of the ocean.
I walk in the midst of the sea.
It's me!
I walk in the midst of the ocean
On dry land!

Walls of water form the corridor or my journey.
Walls of water lay the path to destiny.
It's He
Who made a way to safety.
Onward to my Promised Land!

The Price of Arrogance

The price of arrogance
Is misery,
As you pay the consequence
Most seriously
For failing to give recognition
To a minor nuisance.
Deceived by a sense of invulnerability,
Losing all reason and objectivity,
Thinking the matter was superable,
When it certainly was not.
No thought was given to what was done
Nor to what was neglected to do.
So everything that was held dear,
Soon became unglued.
A cherished relationship lost
Is so great a cost!

Eat Straw

The bullock works long and hard and has but straw to eat.
The lion labors not in the field, yet he desires meat.
And so, the bullock becomes the loin's prey.
But it shall not always be this way.
Men labor to build a castle for the king to stead;
And when the laborer's strength is gone, there is no place to lay his head.
Shall a man plant a vineyard and have no fruit to eat?
Shall a man build a house and have no place to sleep?
No, let the dust be the serpent's meat!
And let the produce of a man's toil be sweet!
Let no animal prey upon another;
But let all sit down together as one does with a brother.
Let us stand in awe
As lion and bullock both eat straw.

Log in my Fireplace

You put a log in my fireplace
And set it aflame.
The heat that it generated
Made me call you by name.
Moans of satisfaction
Cried aloud without shame.
A song of your wonders,
My heart did proclaim.
I felt your fire
In every inch of this room.
But over time,
The log was consumed.
So, if you don't mind,
I'll ask you again,
"Please put a log in my fireplace,
And if not now, tell me when!"
