NaPoWriMo 2013, #30–Free Will

Why don’t they listen?
Why can’t they see?
Time and time again I tell them,
Why don’t they believe me?

I tell them the truth,
Things for their own good.
Yet, they ignore what I say
Or treat it as a falsehood.

I love them so much,
It really hurts me to see,
Them reject the wisdom of my way,
And receive a life of misery.

–God

NaPoWriMo 2013, #28–Color Choice

Red is favored many a time ,
But how can I choose it over lime?
And orange, I really like a lot,
But purple’s great too, is it not?
Yellow is so bright and cheery,
Pink delights when I’m feeling dreary,
Blue calms me with it’s gentle hue,
Yet a light shade of green does that too!
The glitter of gold I love to see,
But the shine of silver is also special to me.
Black has it’s place, as does brown,
How can I possibly choose a color to crown?
Picking a favorite is to hard for me,
For I like them all, as you can see.
Therefore, the choice I’ll leave undone,
For there’s just too many colors to focus on one.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #27–Proverbs and Old Sayings

Old sayings and proverbs
were what my parents often used
to teach a lesson or make a point.

As a child, I would not be amused,
to hear them speak
with wisdom and wit that was against my will.

Yet now, I the same wisdom I do seek
as a parent relating to my child.

I find myself now repeating
the proverbs and sayings of old,
hoping to convey the message
just as I was told.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #26–A Soul’s Search

It’s late and I am seeking sleep,
Yet all that I can find,
Are “what ifs”, “whys” and questions,
Deep within my mind.
“If only” is my companion,
As I search for needed sleep.
Rest I cannot  find,
As the days troubles I do keep.
Worries weigh upon my heart,
And chase the peace away,
Until I turn to God,
Give it all to Him, and pray.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #25–Ballad of If’s

If I had the power dreams to fulfill,
Yours I would instill,
If I only could, I surely would.

If I knew the way to ease your pain,
Hurting, you would never feel again,
If I only could, I surely would.

Your sorrow I would banish,
Your dreams would never vanish,
If I only could, I surely would.

I’d bring you hope for the morrow,
and joy for your sorrow,
If I only could, I surely would.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #24–Leona

Alone On A Noel,
I sit and ponder for what seems like an Eon,
as
A Lone star shines down on the Lea.
I feel akin to that star, for I too am alone,
Yet my light also shines. La!
Because of the One from above who came down
Nae alone am I,
For Lo!  He is always with me, the Bright Morning Star!   Ole!
