….ism


It’s so damn sad
when You’re in the middle
Crosshairs
Indecision
Joker
Seems everybody’s got their motives
Walking poker faces of votives
Dare You continue to play
The nerve of You walking away
It’s so damn sad
when it’s all about a look
Impassioned still gawkers
seem hooked
as to why their
interview wasn’t booked
Options
Those concoctions
they set to keep You just
where You nailed their perception
of reception
And they thought You
were making the first impression
Bid them adieu
before making a confession

I’m waving my flag


I’m waving my flag down below

In hopes you see my surrender

Praying the right direction the wind does flow

Hearing Elvis sing “Love Me Tender”

 

My flag has seen many countries

Hurt by some, damaged by none

Never burned like heat in trees

Riding the waves while having fun

 

But I’m waving my flag

Giving to you my heart and soul

Now that I’ve let the cat out of the bag

Naughty purr for a kitty cat’s hole

 

Don’t let my flag touch the ground

Welcoming hands might say no

Coming dressed in white to the sound

Of parting waters that deliciously flow

 

“Love Me Tender” plays

To the banging and chatter

When duty calls for missionary stays

In go the grunts and out when they matter

 

I’m waving my flag down below

And it’s headed in your direction

The North Pole is as far as it will go

Extending joy of pure affection

If Ever met Never


Classy impositions

Obstructed by cruel intentions

The masses live for pretensions

The clergy orchestrates superstitions

              

Flow

Does the fountain of youth

Spewing freshness

Trickling truth

 

If ever

Met never

Dare one say, What Ever

In a manner all too clever

 

When the bell rings

Inside the Watchtower

A lonesome dove sings

Exposing its true power

 

Rumble does the Earth’s belly

Letting the sky know it is craving

Life too strong for the telly

But remain do the steady all worth saving

 

Words delivered

Not by the weak or quivered

From a Book of purity

Undeniable in its surety

 

Careful one must be

To not skew or change one meaning

Though all that is down, not all can see

Let the heart rule the mind for better screening

 

Then when the bell rings

All  of Heaven sings

And He shines down on His creation

Granting the faithful real love salvation

I Tried To Be Perfect


You put me here

 for a reason

though it may not have been

the right season

I had no fear

 

I listen to the sound

Of their voices

And what I found

Were many, different choices

 

Some found their own way

Others refused to say

Lives floated like a bay

Awakening to fears and pain every day

 

I did my best

To pass your test

But as my heart and smile reflect

I tried to be perfect

 

Though it was my mind

That kept me kind

More indifference

Would I find

 

But I can’t blame them

For another sad church hymn

Souls don’t change with time

They’re just the blind leading the blind

 

If I ask for rest

After I confess

Will you shed your light

With all your might

 

I did my best

To pass your test

But as my heart and smile reflect

Father, I tried to be perfect
