REPENTANCE

How many stones

Have I thrown today;

Or rattled bones

Scattered my way?

 

Praised then blamed,

The Maker above;

Showed no shame,

Corrupted human love?

 

Denied and justified,

Condemned and convicted,

Immediately cast aside;

Kept love restricted?

 

I can’t erase

Yesterday’s shameful disgrace;

Vow to embrace,

Return God’s grace.

 

 


UNCERTAINTY

 

The uncertainty of life is pondered in this collection of 65 poems about faith, hope, and love.

LIFE GRINDS

Life grinds
Everything down;
Slowly unwinds,
Knocks around.

Wears, tears
Beyond repairs;
Corrodes, erodes,
Quietly explodes.

Shapes, creates
Gradually eliminates;
Refines, purifies
Finally glorifies.

Life grinds
Everything down;
Love rewinds,
Circles around.

UNCERTAINTY

A 99 cent Kindle Countdown Deal until  March 3, 2020.

 

VALIDATION FOR MOURNING

I won’t cry
When you die.
Won’t say goodbye,
Blink an eye.

I won’t comply
To another lie;
Quietly stand by,
Barely scrape by.

I won’t deny,
Or blindly defy,
A blood tie
Now rung dry.

I won’t try
To understand why;
Will not sigh,
Walk on by.

I will cry
For love awry;
Rise to fly
Beyond the sky.


UNCERTAINTY

 

ADVERSITY

I can’t remember
What came before;
There’s no ember
Left to restore.

Will time heal
And gradually erase
Or constantly reveal
A forever disgrace?

I can’t fix
What came before;
Undo the eclipse
Choose to ignore.

Escape from myself
Right the wrong;
Clear the shelf
Silence the gong.

I will outgrow
Fears buried inside;
Restore the glow
Too long denied.

 

UNCERTAINTY is a 99 cents Kindle Countdown Deal until March 3, 2020.


ANNO DOMINI

Taking down Christmas decorations today, thought I would repost this. Enjoy.

ANNO DOMINI

Christmas is through,
Pack the tree.
What becomes new
We can’t foresee.

Glitter becomes rust,
People lose cheer.
Ornaments collect dust
For another year.

Store the wreath,
Not the start.
Let what’s beneath
Fill your heart.


SHOULD HAVE

Should have ignored,
Scrolled on by;
Waved the sword,
Voiced my reply.

Tensions escalated, agitated,
Muddied the bleakness;
Flustered and aggravated,
I sensed weakness.

Rhetorical, regurgitated rhetoric,
Blatant corruption, lies
Sanctified what’s degenerate;
Helped me realize.

Resist the bait;
Turns clear hazy.
Divided we deteriorate;
Comments confirm crazy.


AGREEING TO DISAGREE

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ME

My life’s unedited,
A symphony uncomposed;
Words without pages,
Chords missing notes.

Weak character development,
Rambling unresolved plots;
Predictable stagnant clichés,
Riddled with flaws.

Lip-syncing silence,
Shrill mute cries;
A caterwauling harmony,
Tone-deaf rhymes.

A rough draft
Nobody must read,
An original masterpiece
Written by me.
