I am a transient with words unspoken
I am a soul who’s been damaged and broken
For years I lived someone else’s life
Being my son’s little league coach and picking up a drunken wife
I’m an unrighteous man who’s weary and far too tired
And cannot find my way out of the muck in which I’m mired
I yearn for consistency yet find only daily different circumstances
A mortal who is always and forever taking chances
All I want is one place to live until I live no more
And in essence I have become Jesus Christ’s finest whore
I am a troubled transient

A Wish Unfulfilled

I came to your hospice,
  I came here to die

I came for my family
  a final goodbye

I broke that one promise,
  I most wanted to keep

Alone on my mountain,
  no mourners to weep

The doctors and nurses,
  they prod and they poke

Their intentions most noble,
  my spirit on dope

In the night, strangers faces
  call out my name

And act like they know me
  new pawn in the game

If I had that one wish
  still left unfulfilled

I would walk to the rim
  of the Canyon so still

At dawn I would jump
  with both arms open wide

Saying: Thank you Dear Lord
 —for a wonderful ride

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2018)

You Are Not Your Situation

You are not your situation 
I don't care what others say
They are not the 
Heavenly Father anyway
You are not your situation 
No matter the complication
No matter what others say
They are not there for you
So hold your heads my children 
Life's problems never last
In the end you're gonna look back
And say, "Thank you Lord for
Helping me in the past."

Thanksgiving 1999 Thanks

Sometimes it’s hard to choose one memory
to deem the most significant of all.
Thanksgiving, though, is different. I find
that one by far is sweetest to recall.

Thanksgiving 1999 would be
the final holiday we all would share.
We feasted, talked, and dozed all afternoon.
The next year, there would be one empty chair.

Our dying father wouldn’t make it through
the holidays. Though life would never be
the same, I smile remembering that last
Thanksgiving all the family would see.

Strong Tears

Because tears are meant
To be a symbol of strength
Even in hard days.

A Sonnet by an ''Other''

Like Frankenstein, I, too, am loathed to death;
     I walk this earth devoid of friend and hearth,
     devoid of joy from the time of my birth
and from the first draw of my infant's breath.
An outcast and a pariah among
     the friended, I exist without the mirth
     and bliss of those born of more ample worth,
esteem, and prize,—O would that I belong!
Still, I am loved of my dear family
     and most scarce friends, my books, and by my God,
and my most oft-read, soothing Poetry.
     These things I treasure, honor, and so laud
with gratitude and thanks abundantly,
     and so am glad like worms in blesséd sod.

The Robbery

Rob me of my purity,
But once again it's all my fault;
Fell into the trap of false promises
Because I pressed play instead of pause.

The Light

They praise me like a saint,
But I am a sinner;
They don't know the man they see.
I am an addict.
Broken eyes to ***********,
Only Jesus can set me free.
Only by His death on the cross
And the grace of His Father's love
Am I able to be set free.
With God as The Light,
The One and Only Light,
The Only Hope in sight,
Will I be set free.
I am free.

I had a short life but didn't think my fate
Would be ending up on a Thanksgiving  plate 

But I won't be giving thanks on this day for I'm not able 
It's  because I'm laid out on a Thanksgiving table 

I'm not stupid as people have said
I had small pleasures like a scratch on my head
Though I never thought I'd end up dead  

With my insides greatly over-filled
I've been dressed even though I've been killed

A Eulogy To Poetry-Soup

I extol your virtues.

I lean back,exulting at 
your innovation and 
A dream come true-I 
salute you.
   I salute your inventive
   Paragon of excellence.
  An out-let for display of 
emotions and feelings in 
tangible form.
   Limitless quiver 
housing the enlightened
expanding arrows.
   Your ship of knowledge 
ferry talents from 
obscurity to lime-light.
Giving preference to no 
race or gender.
   I salute you sunlight of 
  A safe haven for 
wandering minds-
bringing imaginations to 
  Kudos! I pray:
  The spread of night 
shall not over-shadow.

A celebration of life

Life is meant to be lived and celebrated
Celebrated for those who make living purposeful
Purposeful to them, and to others meaningful
Meaningful enough to be celebrated

Have a nice life

Devouring, destroying, decaying. For your eyes only.
Inside, interiors, innermost. Then reflects on the outside.
Eaten, eager, eroding. Tap it, let it pour.
Disdain, disease, departure. 'Twas been driving you.

...reconciliation, with what is left.

...acceptance, what it offers.

...accord, to what you have become.

Peace, in the soft embrace of oblivion brought through demise.

A Hope Memory Tribute Bob Hope

In our lives you were forever,
to make us cry, no never.
So many things that you did,
you made us all feel like a kid.
Every word you ever spoke,
somehow turned into a joke.
A special gift you had somehow,
I guess God must need it now.
He sent you to Angels above,
remember it's you we'll always love.
If it was loose, you would  tighten the rope,
after all you were Bob Hope.
We're all so grateful for all you gave,
the crazy ways you would behave.
So may I say from many,
   "Thanks for the Memory!"

+ noone might talk but silence speaks words and when the cracks first appear they let in the the light and then the tears fall for loss but those tears are a gift and all sadness for death can be balanced by thoughts that each of our lives is a prize. acknowledgement embracement expression promotion testimony and support for the realities of now with comfort and love to find strength.

Your Soul is Alive

Your body left us here 
On earth,
Finally able to break that 
Evil curse
Now, your soul is more alive 
Than ever
Reminding me daily I’m just like you
Hidden behind that disease 
Was the woman
 I desire to be
The women deserved to have
 Been seen
I’m proud to have you as 
My guide
From this point on
 I shall only rise
You gave me a life time prize.
 Thank you mom
Rest in peace

The mighty Oak,Shoots towards the sky, 
reaching high with out stretching arms. 
Stunted only by heritage, broad shoulders
carry any burden. Slow and low lights burn 
the longest. Resended only by limitations, withered, 
shown in rings, long proud roots. Out lived mortals 
three times over. Worth ten of the nearest, truly a fine 
Specimen. Envy green are his tassels, an off color of 
greed are his views,Tall and Proud. His span far out 
reaching others.Thought by some to live forever. 
However His time, like Achilles, must eventually 
meet that final curtain, gone further, lived on 
only by name, while ruins waste away. 
Good bye, Old Topp!

Life as Turkeys

Nice days
Still alive
Eating and eating
I warned you they say
But my brain told me to not listen
My heart told me to listen
Choosing my brain
My heart beating
Worrying about the future
Farmer came
Measuring our weight and fatness
No I say
The farmer chose me
I thank everyone
For warning me
My life is over

A Lingering Moment Of Peace

A Lingering Moment Of Peace.

Come lighten up, the day is near,
No point now for anticipation and fear.
The deeds are done, the bed is made,
No point in having the inevitable delayed.
Feel the life in every breath, 
The only thing guaranteed in life is death.
Taste and touch, every sweet sensation,
The deity will soon give revelation.
For a lingering moment of peace should you strive,
Oh ,what a gift, to be alive.

Sonnet 46 'Love's Overspoken, I Will Make Another Farewell'

'Love’s' overspoken!  I will make another
Farewell!  Yet only Love can brave an end!
You were what can’t be found in any other
You were that on which all right things depend,
On which, hope waits!   And, with great care you turned
The leaves of my all-spotted, scribbled Book,
All traces of my self-pity, you burned,
You gave me fire and mercy in one look…
Each soul you met said all his days were poorer,
Had you not matched his steps, with yours and listened
And smiled as though your joy was made the purer --
For your bright Presence every poor soul, christened!
For every grace you shaped, light in your talk
You left me, Love, your footprints in the chalk.

To you who
Stood by when 
The world was against me
Showered me with tenderness
When life tasted bitter
Gave me strength
When I felt helpless
Walked with me
When I needed companionship
Shared your joys
When my life was empty
Gave me understanding
When I needed to cry
To you who
Treated me like a queen
When I felt small
Promised sunshine
When all I could see were clouds
Gave me friendship 
When I needed it most
Would come running 
When I was lonely
Listened when no one would hear
Gave me love 
Every day of the year
Thank you

i hope you know to be polite to the tears your pillow has seen 

and to hug your blanket once a day 

and give your stuffed dog 
or cat 
or bear
or bunny 

a kiss on the forehead so

they know you care about them just as much as they care about you

Never forget

Another day,
and another...
days keep on going,
some faster, 
some slower,
but they all do pass.

Things often happen, 
some for the best 
and others for not so much the best.
they all do pass.

There always blessings,
few we notice 
every once in awhile,
and some we never do.

But have you thought?
What would you do if you woke up one day with only what you thanked God for yesterday...

There’s no such thing as a coincidence...

Thanks For Pretending

Thank you for pretending
Like I meant something to you.

Thank you for pretending
Acting like I was needed too.

Thank you for pretending
While you were never there.

Thank you for pretending
Like you could ever really care.

Thank you for pretending
Because I felt like I could fly.

Thanks,but I'm not pretending
I love you,and it's not a lie.
