devils seed

The devil planted many seeds , the most powerful is called greed

Men struggle to get their little fingers on that ball called wealth

It matters not who is hurt or what is felt.

Wealth is power , this we know

But these politicians have got to go.

They don’t care how it’s achieved

And the public they will bleed

They work with the banks who control the money

So they could live on milk and honey.

You apply for a mortgage and your application has been rejected

Because your credit score is too low , and you don’t

Have enough of a cash flow.

Yet they turn around and send you a notice that you

Are pre- approved for a high credit line

If you make your payments on time

Your credit line can be used to make purchases of any kind

But if you try to use it for closing costs

They say “ you’re out of your mind “

You pay your bills every month without fail

But if you’re late on your mortgage

They take away your house and want to put you in jail.

Once you’ve made your interest payments

The principal they care nothing about

Because they have others waiting when they throw you out

They use your money to give others a loan

Then at you they throw stones.

This is the devils seed at work , making us feel

Like a complete jerk.

homeless and with words

 

NOT EVERYBODY HAS GONE TO COLLEGE OR ARE INTELLECTS

YET WORDS THEY’VE LEARNED THEY TEND TO FORGET

SO I WRITE PLAIN SIMPLE POETRY

JUST SO THRU MY EYES LIFE THEY CAN SEE

WE ALL SEE LIFE IN A DIFFERENT WAY

WHAT IS RIGHT ! WHO IS TO SAY !

I HAVE MET HOMELESS PROFFESIONALS OF EVERY KIND

WHO SAY THEY’RE HOMELESS , BECAUSE LIFE IS BLIND

IT DOES’NT MATTER YOUR PROFFESION , AGE , OR GENDER

TO ALCOHOL AND DRUGS YOU DID SURRENDER.

WE VERY RARELY GET LIFE ON A SILVER PLATTER

WE WORK HARD FOR THINGS THAT MATTER/

RESPONSIBILITIES DON’T GO AWAY , BECAUSE

YOU GET HIGH AND WANT TO PLAY.

THERE ARE SO MANY WORDS THAT I CAN USE

THE SIMPLE ONES ARE THE ONES I CHOOSE.

YET WORDS USED THE PROPER WAY

CAN TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND DSY TO DAY.

IT IS CALLED SPEECH , SOMETHING THAT A LITTLE

EDUCATION CAN TEACH.

LISTEN TO WORDS AND HOW THEY’RE USED

TRY THEM IF YOU CHOOSE.

THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON I EVER MET

WAS A SIXTH GRADE DROPOUT WHO SELF TAUGHT

HIMSELF BY WATCHING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

ON TELEVISION AND HOLD CONVERSATIONS WITH ME

ABOUT MONEY , POLITICS AND HISTORY.

HE WAS STILL RUNNING HIS FATHERS GROCERY STORE

ND HELPING THE HOMEKESS ON THE STREETS

GIVING THEM FOOD AND CLOTHING AND WARM SOCKS FOR THEIR FEET.

YET THE BIGGEST GIFT HE HAS GIVEN THE HOMELESS

IS THE WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT/

daddy ! why am i so different

 

( special needs )

The father watched his daughter looking out the window

Feeling so glum , when she turned and asked him :

Daddy ! Why am I so different ?

Why can’t I jump and run and have some fun ?

I know I can’t run as fast or jump as high

But I’m willing to give it a try !

Her father looked at her and thought about what he was going to say

You see when God made mankind , everyone gave him thanks and praise

To God , but as time went by people started changing and giving

Less thanks and praise

So God decided that he would make special children who could remind

The world of what they are missing.

These special children saw more dreams than most other children.

A child would dream about riding a big white horse

While the special children could see a big white horse with wings

To take them any where in the world

Other kids dreamed about being kings and queens in far away lands

While special kids saw themselves as kings and queens

Helping others to follow their dreams.

Now the world has opened up their eyes and created “ special Olympics “

He called these children “ visionaries with special needs.

Yes my daughter ! You are different in so many ways

But the world needs you so they don’t go astray.

You see things that others will not , because you have a special gift

That others have not !

GOD gave me the four things I need in this life

Faith , hope , love , and YOU !

first thousand years

A thousand years or more may pass

I don’t know how long our love will last

But I will love you till the last goodbye

As the tears roll from my eyes.

When your heart is full it can explode

This is something we’ve all been told.

Yet just like a balloon it can fly away

And this is the price that you must pay.

Hold on to love for as long as you live

For at each turn they’ll be more to give.

Love gives no guarantees or money back

And no contract in white or black.

It is like a merry-go-round , you get on it

And you hold on tight and pray that it doesn’t take to flight.

In marriage the first five years are always the toughest

But in love the first day is the roughest.

You are not sure if what you feel is really love

Or just a passing desire which has built up a fire.

Will that fire burn for the first thousand years ?

Or will love take away your fears ?

sleeping baby

The angels had her in their keep

While she played with the cherubs in her sleep

She had a smile from ear to ear , while with them

She had no fear.

With her eyes closed ever so tight ,” she laughed”

With all her might.

She was kicking her legs up in the air

As if she was in a mile race , and such a smile upon her face.

What a delight it would be , if we could see

Underneath her eye lids

at what was taking place In that wide open space .

This is a moment that a parent treasures the most

When their child is the host.

i called out your name

 

You came to me when I called out your name

To take away my troubles and pain

There are many things in life that I can do

And when I can’t , I turn it over to you.

You give me strength when I am weak

You are the only one that I seek.

My destiny has already been laid out by you

And you know what I’ll be going through.

We all must have hard times and crosses to bare

And with others our problems we’ll share

Then the devil comes to my door , trying

To tempt me to sin once more

If I allow him to get his way , then in sin I will stay.

But I am in the hands of my Lord and he has

Opened many a door.

He has taken me to where I have to be

And set my heart and soul free.

Devil go back home to your fires and brimstone !

I called out your name and I feel your might

Cause you are with me day and night.

my heart is warm

 

The temperatures were lower and the winds were colder

Yet my heart was as warm as can be . Cause the way you looked at me.

Your eyes radiated a love so strong – I knew this was where I belonged

The temperature may be thirty below , but in my heart I feel a glow.

Like a spark that starts a fire , you fill my hearts desire.

Never in my life I would have thought , that you was the one that I sought.

I had wandered city streets in despair looking for one to care

I had searched places where people gathered , but not one

Place ever mattered.

Peace I could never gain and my search was always in vain.

Had I known that you was always in front of me

My search would never have been a mystery

Take my hand and let us walk in paradise

Because tonight I’ll ask you to be my wife.

what is a daughter

 

What is a daughter to me ?

I’ll tell you in one word “ LIFE “

Without someone’s daughter there

Would be no man !

!Why is it so difficult to understand !

It wouldn’t matter if they are straight or gay

God made us different in so many ways

She can cook , clean, take care of a house

Of that we have no doubt.

She becomes your soul mate , a wife , a lover and

Like her there is no other.

Then she gets pregnant and brings, new life

Into this world – and it matters not if it’s a boy or girl.

A mothers love will become endless , and there are

Np boundaries to the extent that they will go ,to protect them

this I know !

She is life in every form and not one to be scorned

They can be the Moodiest creatures on this earth

Especially after giving birth.

No matter who s daughter she may be

Her love is shown naturally.

ask for his guidance

When things don’t seek to go my way
I get down on my knees and pray
Many times our minds are closed to the
Simplest tasks, and his guidance is all we ask.
There is no problem too small or too large
That he cannot undo – we just have to ask
And he will follow thru.

At times we question why a loved one gets sick
Or has to die. – maybe it’s because another angel
Is needed to fill a void up in the sky.
Eternal life is in Gods kingdom in heaven
Not here on earth.
This is just a temporary stop from our birth.

Most people know what I say is true
It all depends upon you.
Can you put your faith and belief in his hands
Just so that you could understand that he
Gives us many doors – ‘ when he closes that one door ‘
Doors close so you don’t go through aches and pains
Because your life may forever change.

ask for his guidance as I had done
for he is Gods only son.

mother nature s child

Flowers open up their eyes to meet the rising sun
And close their eyes when the day is done
Roosters are greeting the morning sun
As they awaken most every one.
Skies are showing different shades of blue
Greens and whites are in there too.
Adults and children ready for the day
Some to work and some to play.
The grass a beautiful shade of green
As it reaches the sands and streams.
There are fruit trees reaching up to the skies
Of apples, avocadoes, lemons and limes.
We have so many plants coming from the ground
Vegetables , herbs and spices galore from
The deserts up to the shores.
She has given us plants for many sicknesses
Yet to be found and its all coming from the ground .
All mother nature asks is to respect her and her child
Mother Earth and she will give all her worth.
Love her as I love her , for she has given all that makes
life worth living.
