A Grand Opening

Carpet of Fall Leaves

Through the open door they dance

Inhibitions unlocked

Freely they fling

Flashes of color

Detached, moving with abandon

Come to rest at my feet

I gape at the beauty of the leaves of Fall

Come to entertain me

On this windy day.

False Faces

False Face

Betrayal

Brings duplicity

Back and forth

Lying tongues weaving

Dishonesty and deception

Cleverly disguised

Harmless looking masks

-Falseness-

Masks looking harmless

Disguised cleverly

Deception and dishonesty

Weaving tongues lying

Forth and back

Duplicity brings

Betrayal

Thoughts On Love

The word LOVE

Love never ends.

It’s easy to love someone

Who also loves you

Someone who’s true

Who’s patient and kind

And of the same mind

It’s easy to love that someone

It’s not easy to love someone

Who doesn’t love you

Someone who’s untrue

Who’s impatient and unkind

And of a different mind

It’s not easy to love that someone

But Jesus said to love everyone

Even that someone

Who doesn’t love you

Who’s impatient and untrue

Of a different mind or unkind

Who’s arrogant and rude everyday

Who selfishly insists on their own way

Loving everyone is not easy, tis true

But it’s something Jesus told us to do

Rhyme

Jesus said: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,…” John 13:34

What 1 Corinthians 13 says about Love:

Love is patient and kind;

love does not envy or boast;

it is not arrogant or rude

It does not insist on its own way;

it is not irritable or resentful;

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,

but rejoices with the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

More Than A Conqueror

Victory Wreath

Come follow me, I’ll never leave you

I’ll show you all the things you must do

To win life’s battles against your foe

And gain victory no matter where you go

You’ll be more than a conqueror, it tis true

Your enemies will always pursue

But them you’ll always mightily subdue

Together them we’ll overthrow

Come follow me

You’ll never be alone, for it’ll be us two

I’ll lead and guide and bring you through

In every challenge you’ll conquer and grow

Power and victory you’ll always bestow

Everyday I’ll give you victories anew!

Come follow me

Rondeau

Based on Romans 8:37-38 and John 12:26

Have You Ever?

Sailing ship on calm water

Have you ever been told “No!”

Stopped when you wanted to go

Denied passage within

Rejected for the color of your skin

Refuted for something you’ve said

Sought friendship but were scorned instead

Vetoed for taking a stand

Mocked for the goals you’ve planned

Nothing but bills in the mail

Everything you try seems to fail

You’re not alone my friend

I’ve gone round and round that bend

Someday our ships will come in

Someday it’ll be our turn to win!

Rhyme

“Never, Ever, Give Up!”

Insecurity Vanquished

Hands holding bible

Filled with doubt I elect to stand

Holding fast His words in my hand

I trust and overcome fear,

Embrace life, enemies sneer, as they disband

But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.)
