MY SHOES… a poem

pair of brown leather boots in pavement

Please, if you choose to walk in my shoes

Don’t you dare stray

Have a quick look around

And then walk away

It’s hard enough for me

To shuffle around in this place

Without tripping over your stuff

And falling flat on my face

So, if I find you’ve been here

And you were conscious and kind

I’ll invite you again

To walk further next time

THE DEVIL DID WIN… a dark poem

person behind fog glass

Twisting and fighting

The demons within

Helplessly crying

Where to begin

All of the love has gone out of this life

Censured my soul

Cut out with a knife

Carelessly wondering

A desolate land

Not a mere morsel

To be found by this hand

Starved from the inside

Starved from without

The devil did win

He screams with a shout

Here is the prize

I promised my hoard

Once a good soul

Now cut from its cord

AGING… a poem of life and faith

This is a picture of my grandfather on my mother’s side…

Callused and worn

Broken and cracked

Wrinkled and withering

Down in the back

Can’t see a thing

Without the aid of some specs

What did you say

My hearing’s a wreck

And yet I still smile

Every single day

God gave me this time

I’ll not waste it away

Do I consider myself lucky

No, that’s not the test

Someone faithful like me

Knows they are blessed

EAT THE FUDGE… a silly poem

chocolate cake on white ceramic plate

If I had only let go

When the anger began

There’d have been no turmoil

But pride ruled this man

Overcoming adversity

Was always taught to me

Yet, I let my guard down

And the darkness broke free

Now I sit in this cell

Awaiting the judge

I said I was sorry

I should have eaten the fudge

WORTH A TRY… a love poem of hope

When the glamour faded

So did he

One moment there

The next – absentee

Why does this happen

All of the time

Will I ever find love

As myself – divine

Creating illusions

To capture the eye

Only to lose

Walk away and cry

Life isn’t fair

My mother always said

Yet I still find myself

Alone in this bed

But, maybe tomorrow

I’ll not wear the mask

Go out in the world

Take on the task

And maybe, if I’m lucky,

I’ll finally catch the eye

Of the love of my life

Well, at least it’s worth a try

Mickey… a silly poem

Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse grass decor

Happy, happy everyday

Minnie helps me find my grace

Goofy, he’s a silly one

Loping ’round and having fun

Donald is a funny fowl

His voice is strange

My bill a scowl

Oh Tootles! - Our Three Peas

And, Tootles keeps us on our toes

Solving riddles

With tools he knows

But, you all know this house of play

The name is, Mickey

Have a nice day

INSIDE THE PALE… a poem of faith

Aurora phenomenon

Be who you are

The power is inside

Reach for the stars

Have faith and not pride

Give voice to the voice

That resides in your heart

The words that you say

Can mend a soul torn apart

Speak kindness and love

And lead the right way

Smile and laugh often

Everyday

Time will soon come

And your ship will sail

Stay true in your faith

Live inside the pale

THOUGHTS OF COMFORT IN FAITH…

blue red and yellow abstract painting

If I fall, I know the kiss of a thousand angel’s wings will catch me and set me upon the solid ground with a reassurance that can only come from God. If I lose a friend, my heart may break, but time will heal the heart and soul as our paths have been forever laid out before us in the book of life. We may not know what is written on those pages until we have ventured beyond them, but if we have faith in God, then it really doesn’t matter. Have faith and be well my friends!
