With flint in hand on this cool Autumn night
I strike a great spark and hope that it’s right
Dried out leaves, twigs and logs for a fire
To keep out the cold in a soul that is dour
And the light of this flame that will burn in the night
Guiding the forgotten and those who took flight
Bringing in all who have lost their way
With blind love and warmth at the end of the day

The weight we carry
In the belly
In the thighs
Cannot hide the weight we carry
Deep, deep down inside
Perhaps, there on the outside
They say, “You’re looking tight!”
If they only knew
What’s on your heart
They might hold you through the night
But, lest it be forgotten
There is One who carried more
He will stem the tide
On this difficult ride
And shoulder the weight that you once bore
We are the joy of the day!
See this even through adversity,
As joy is found on the other side!
While I ponder the pages
Piqued and persuaded
To go just a little bit more
It is there that I find
In the corners of my mind
What my life has been longing for
Tucked away neatly
Not wrapped with a bow
Was solace, alive and well
For me to discover
Then go out in the world and tell
Tell of the truth
Of kindness and love
Embracing the differences, we see
A lesson so old
Again, to be told
By a simple man like me
And just like that… I have a book published… If you purchase and read this book of Poetry of Faith I hope you find words that touch your heart, your soul and your faith…
All the best,
How can it
be that we turn our heads,
Or walk past
the struggling man?
A simple act
of kindness, as it’s called today,
part of God’s plan.
