Lord., I've Been Hurting!
This one thing I am
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.
I trying to do right, but it
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?
So many people
pass me by.
may say; “hi!”
I don’t know if this message is
I feel so confused and
A message of “help” has my
prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!
He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
filled my soul!
Spending time with Jesus
is time well spent!
It was for you and me that
Jesus was sent!

To those who forgive me
I loathe you
for you are weak
your voices are not worthy
you spineless living
worthless as dumb dogs
If not incarcerated
I would do it again
would squeeze everything
out of you
No do not say you forgive me
you are not gods
You have no power to forgive
you are impotent
After I vanish
I will haunt you to your deaths
I will be waiting
to squeeze the light from your soul
until nothing but darkness

character, death, faith, father, husband, integrity, peace,
He died as he lived
Without making waves
A simple man
A humble man
A loving husband
And devoted father
A man of principles
To live with integrity
At peace with both
Living and dying
Ready to meet His Maker
Leaving with a promise on his lips
To keep over us a watchful eye

Cassio Laps Wondrously
An open porch, gifts spritely legs
on all his fours, meows he begs
so opens I, a tuna can
not be prepared, a stray in tan
that came to be for many years
a wandering did set in fears
yet his return continued on
meows are heard, that be his song
untimely death outside our door
car screeching sound could not ignore
near fronts our yard, the roses bloom
midst stands a cross neath lies his tomb
heartfelt love, receptive wills he
laps Heaven's milk, eternally.

Give me drink, rest, and solitude—
these are all the things I long for;
give me as well your finest food,
and I'll ask of you, lass, no more!
My lovely lass, what's the matter—
why are you all down and alone?
Don't be vexed because you're sadder
than most, dear, for God loves His own.
Sweet girl, I'll tell you a secret:
if I were a young lad again,
I'd chase you for your sweet asset.
But as I am two-score and ten
years old (with wife in deed), never
can I be your white knight with steed;
but your sadness won't last forever,
if you pray for the one you need.

Me, myself and I
were talking to myself
when I asked me a question
and he was not himself.
He, himself and him
was questioning himself
when he spoke much like me
and I was less myself.
She, herself and her
was talking to ourselves
Leaving us to wonder
who was who's own self.
They, themselves and them
joined us in themselves
and now we were together
in being our own selves.

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies
I want to here with me through the night
My heart yearns into your soul
Burning as if newly lit coal
I bravely submerg the embers
That the time I have can be spent with you
And I remember each kiss every moment
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember
So what happened was a chance for your love
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss
I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss
I lay silient in an umber

I rend asunder and
Crumble into dust
Before my very eyes.
No answers forthcoming
To my many questions,
Most important, "Why?"
"A fool are you,"
I stand thinking.
"There is no disguise."
To worry so about
What matters not
In the by and by.
Trials have strengthened.
Sorrows kept me human.
No point to analyze.
"Life is for living,"
An ultimate truth
I finally realized.
Sooner than later
Might have been better,
Had only I been wise.
I rend asunder and
Crumble into dust....
A twinkle in my eye.

Front-line in depth of mortar
Whistling shells and screams of torture
Blood clot gurgles death bell tolls
Hell of pain in body enthrals
Danger rings apprehension stalls
character, death, deep, depression, dream, horror, psychological,
In the night
In the dark
Heart of ice
Sperm on a dead end street
With all my might
Fall of chair
If only I could walk
If only there was fresh air
Locked inside my own insanity
In the basement lies my corpse
The museum of lost lovers
The paintings on the walls
From concrete fallen
Made of waterfalls
Everyone is running around killing everyone
Barrel bombs and barrels of fun for tyrants numb
Here I am alone, killing only me

(about the two wars)
I gave my life for you,
My grit was your prosperity,
So that you could do.
I swallowed at the task,
Girded myself bravely,
Prepared to have a mask.
When self-awareness engulfed,
And loneliness overcame,
Determination was loved.
I fought a man every time,
I faced the thwarting enemy,
No easy game of mine.
I strove to either succeed,
Or to sacrifice my everything,
But the opposition to impede.
I thought of family and you,
Freedom and liberty,
And the rightness of the two.

A full moon night
to my delight
what is so wrong
with doing what's right
nothing is right
after so long
no use in complaining
time to move on
The Dream Water one day
might take me away
farther from the comfort
I float on my back
then shut my eyes
my body now sinking
into ocean arms open wide
Now swallow your son
back to his nature
when he is no longer
needed to stay here
the next generation
are dooming themselves
they need my experience
to guide them through hell
Why should I bother
on my own, I strive through
I turn my back on the thought
of bothering to save you
alone in this world
my, is it spacious
I'm finally smiling,
never so gracious.

adventure, analogy, beauty, bereavement, character, emotions, encouraging,
Not only the one who sulks does barely nothing,
he also bums out the rest of his acquaintances,
diminishing their cheerfulness and good will,
strewing this distressing mentality among other folks,
getting their minds infected with his contagious stress
It's all but inherent in humans to mope now and then,
yet there are fellows who do so too frequently;
they contaminate other minds with their behavior,
Thus they're giving rise to more mopers and so on;
Let's not be mopers so that life smiles at us and we at her.

I'll get better, one day.
I know I will.
I just have to keep going this way,
and try not to fall down this hill.
Sure, I'll fall out sometimes,
but if I don't, how will I learn?
These are the times-
it's strength, I'll earn.
It takes time to get better,
it takes time to be happy,
but I know if I do this with her,
I'll no longer feel crappy.
This is the time to change,
the time to smile,
time to leave this range,
and run the mile.

When two people fall in love, ain't no need in waiting for the future, time goes on even when a child is born. death nor deception has rule over time, but, even it is welcome. faith, hope, and charity have known Him. vanity, beauty, and greed fell to the wayside as time was the factor. from morning unto night, time controls every minute, it starts on the move. the wind, rain, and stars, all know the matter and movement of it. we've all heard of time, but, we never get to know it, because time moves on time and time again, never ending. hey, time. I've heard about you, read about you, and have even lived with you. but, I've never gotten to really know you, but its about time.

Big blundering beast
Poor fish have no chance whatsoever
Neither does the slowest runner in your group
bible, character, eulogy, introspection,
So quiet is your voice
Hopefully no one will see you
Maybe they will pass by your door an pay you no mind
Life will be the same
The status quo
Maybe You Will Be Saved
What about the others
That weren't as fortunate
Just turn your back
Somehow rationalize their demise
Do you believe
Maybe You Will Be Saved

Rebel to the core
a story teller
brother in arms
we all march to the same reaper
bountiful the smiles
giver of kindness
the greatest Houdini act of all time
all in the eyes
all in the eyes
all in good time
Black holes with no visions
ripping one from the inside out
finally there is only one path
To the lights
take away the darkness
death is your only suitor
your last dance

How like a prison is my cubicle
How wary is my body on this chair.
How still my heart and yet how truly fickle.
How fast it flies to you who are not here.
How elegant your letters and your thoughts
How gentle was your touch upon my throat.
And yet you killed my words and all I brought...
You were no lover but a randy goat.
As in this mental jail I'm neatly trapped,
I'll use this time to write and also pray.
Perhaps my mind can extricate a map..
From which I'll plot the route to get away.
The prisons which seem external are inside
Yet in such captive grief some folk have died

So, farewell then, Father Jack
Let this be writ upon a plaque
"All things pass;
Drink, feck, ****..."
