Filled with fear and confusion
Consumed by my thoughts of uncertain times
Searching for answers that would lead
To an awakening of truth
An outlet, an escape from the fear which grips my soul
When I remember the world that will be no more
Darkened into submission
Never the same as we move toward a reset
We are paralyzed by change
Having no idea what’s coming next
I cry silently in the darkness for lost memories
Of what was and what will never be again
As we crash into a different world
Awakening to new technologies
Extremely concerned with the storms of tomorrow.
Every time I think you’re missing in action, you show me you’re always near.
You’ve been there through every laughter
You’ve been there through every tear
You’ve been there through my pain in the darkness
You’ve been there even when it rains
You’ve been there when my world was crumbling
You’ve been there through my saddest moments
You’ve been there through my mistakes and failures
You’ve been there when I felt so alone
You’ve been there when I suffered loss
You’ve been there when I searched for life’s meaning
You’ve been there when I was looking for love
You’ve also been there in my happiest moments
And you will still be there even after I’m gone
You turn my darkness into daylight and I can see more clearly your hands is in everything. Your love is eternal…..
THANK YOU LORD…
A clown sits comfortably on my desk.
It’s a constant reminder to
Laugh, smile and jest.
Life can be daunting and take you through loops.
Have fun, play hooky,
Do something different..Oops!!
Take some time to relax your mind.
Smile daily, laugh often
It will ease life’s grind.
Don’t take life too seriously,
We all know daily experiences
can appear so mysteriously.
Joking is all part of the fun
Laughing and playing
Especially when you’re always on the run.
Free time can relieve the stress
When you’re always thinking
And not living your best.
Laughing is contagious it changes your mood
Relax, be happy it’s for your own good.
God never promised
Life would be a bed of roses
Filled with sweet aromas
Like the gentleness of a flower
Blowing gently in the summer wind
Trials like thorns and thistles
Show up unexpectedly
Choking out life
Leaving one breathless
Aroused by the darkness which
Quenches the spirit
Uncertainty rushes in
Entangled in a web of confusion
Then light beats out the darkness
And we are reminded
Endurance gives us strength
As we persevere through hardship
Faith in God
Drowns out the darkness
Our senses are stimulated knowing
That better days lies ahead.
Birds on a wire,
Sitting in the most unusual place
Hardly a sound uttered,
When they disappear without a trace
Silently peaking at the scene below
In amazement I wonder,
What are they thinking
As they see people run to and fro.
Like an old motion film reel,
Wound on a plastic core
On a projector repeating a movie,
We love and adore
People’s lives are in motion day after day
Real birds on a wire
If they were able to talk,
What would they say?
Looking at human beings progression
As watchers witnessing,
Man’s behavior and daily obsessions
Sometimes I wonder,
What are they thinking?
As they look towards the ground
Is this life, Is this living?
Content with their lives as they
Sit high on a line,
I actually believe they’re doing just fine.
