Forgiveness

Pebbles and rocks

Rivers and sand

People and places

Fantasy be damned…

And over the edge

Where fantasies live

No hunger or suffering

Just something to give….

And numb as it was

Alive was inside

Not for what was lost-

But for what finally had died.

Days and Time

The longest day of the year
Is but a few weeks away…
Were the days not just getting longer?
Yes, just the other day?
Oh time you stump me-
As you keep getting further still…
Always challenging my space
And my perception at will.
You are but a blip-
On an ever changing screen…
Always with the answers-
But never knowing what they mean.

The List

Oh how you grow

And taunt me to fail…

Oh how you stop

In forgotten detail…

Oh how you try

To not let me forget…

Oh how I wish

Success I would get…

Oh how I wait

To remember you exist…

Oh how the goals

Just stay on the list.

And Again

The storm taxed the land

And people within

Even while some

We’re simply living again.

Hail destroyed objects

And spider webs too…

Quickly it passed

Once damage was through.

But night does clear

A path we can walk

Careful the wolves

As they begin their walk.

Devils and demons

Talk over Angel’s say…

Hear their voices

And find the right way.

Future Temptress 


It haunts me

Telling jokes
Playing games

Little pokes
Tap, tap, tap

Always the same sound 

Opportunity knocking 

But can’t be found.
Windows are covered

The door without a knob

The noise is loud

Between these sobs.
Temptation is lurking 

Don’t let it come in

The temptress offers 

Fate stalls again

State of Time


Pleasant sounds now have ominous tones

Begging for the worst

Painting the best.

The artist is unknown 

While work is displayed 

Manipulated understanding.

Young are born 

Old still age

Brevity highlighting it all.

Muscles ache

While wasting away

So is the state of time.

Time Fallacy

Time Fallacy

There they stand
Thinking of all the time ahead
Racing to grow up
Ignoring lines they tread.
Enjoy being a kid!
Sentiment each parent sells
The dream that is always preached
Too often doesn’t turn out well.
Waiting to take responsibility
And rescued in their youth
Then shock from friends and strangers
When time reveals the truth.
You don’t have time you see
So stop wasting another day
Enjoy being young and open
But don’t ignore adulthood on its way.
Nothing lasts forever
Especially keeping time
Regrets leave more moments wasted
The body gets past its prime.
You should only have 1 BUT in your life
And that should be your ASS!
Don’t believe in having later
Or anyone will just let you pass.
Enjoy your youth, yes!
Don’t depend on the best is yet to come….
Adulthood is long and hard
And you will wish to again be young.
Chase that dream each day
Work hard to make it real
Preach honesty in your life
Keep negativity from what you feel.
You don’t have time, kid!
But you do have today . . .
Don’t throw it in the trash
Use your time to work, learn and pray.
