A Stupor!

A Stupor

In a stupor
We walk
As we stare
At a world
Only physical
We think
But if you blink
In only one small wink
You can awake

All around
Those beings
Angels to do
His bidding
demons always trying
their own way
To be winning

After walking
On His planet
He left behind
Upon it
A few 
Who were
Then more followed

Until it was
More & more
Now upon
The near & so distant
More eyes
Hearts wakened

So join
A growing crowd
Even if 
You have to shout
To tell what it is

It is too late
& their stupor
We cannot abate
As those who
Are now awake
most patiently
His return

Why This?

What Else?

What else is there?
Nothing rings true
Where upon this planet
For this
Lies the cure?

Rings of the temporary
Over it
Literally stumbles
I know this sounds contrary

A world’s song 
Completely different
I know we all long
To believe it
But its useless voice
We must bury it

Wars will come and end
Governments rise & fall
Even death our bodies 
Will be allowed to rend

So, listen to the voice
Of your God/Christ
Because there’s really 
Nothing, no one else
As He comes back
And we watch
As all the old away 
Does melt!

Itching Ears!!

Itching Ears

Itching ears,
Itching ears
Fill them with flea powder
Itching ears
Itching ears
For they only deny His power

They do not wish 
To hear the truth
Always and only 
Are they in pursuit
The self

Themselves, myself
Always and only me
Tell me not the truth
Or I fear my ears will bleed

Gently soothe me
Caress my foolish soul
Lie to me, 
My pride and vanity cajole

For I fear you know
This Christianity a book
Speaks of
Would not fit me 
Hand in glove

It causes pain
Might even lead 
Me to an early grave
Silence your truth
I want no more proof
Creation’s Almighty
Glorious King!

What Not Me!

What not me!

A sinner
What not me!
Such words belong
Only to the antiquities

God loves me 
This I know
& only blessings 
Do I want to be shown

Suffering is not what
I deserve
God should give me
What I want when I want it
Is that not what you observe?
I wish to live as I desire
So tell me no unpleasant words

Picking up my cross
Salvation from hell
So please, 
Such words to me
Do Not Tell!

But yet,
I sigh
Sometimes I cry
Longing for something
I feel I am missing
I do not have that bliss yet
Where is it of that word
I have often heard
My kismet?

So pastor speak to me
The truth
Perhaps that is
Really the only precious root
Of all existence
I promise to now listen
Without resistance

Come Lord Jesus
Teach me
Holy Spirit reach me
I beg
I wish to only 
Be led
Forever & always
Toward your glory 
Which eternally and blissfully
Now surrounds your Head!

YOU are


You are the flame
Within the candle’s light
You are the fire
Within its heat
The wind inside each 
Taken breath
The song that causes
My small heart to beat

Without YOU, 
I would not,
Could not
Begin to exist
Your love alone helps me
Each of this dark world’s lusts
To resist

Praise you, 
Thank you
For helping me along
Each of life’s most treacherous
Precarious turns & twists!!

Half A Chance

Half a Chance

In the cold
Trembling, shaken
A thick darkness enfolds
My heart
Only an unknown terror awaits
For each this is
Our fate

Until You came to fulfill
A plan known only by a few
Before any of creation
Designed by a Father, Spirit
And also You
To save and rebirth
All of your humanity
Living on this green earth

You came to save
Our only chance
May I say
We had not half
A chance
Until you came to dance
Among the living dead

So thank you 
Holy Christ
For offering yourself
In us you wished to see
Your face
So my tombstone could read
This one He saved
In vain He did not bleed!

Hope everyone has a happy Fourth of July and stay safe! Praise You Lord Jesus!
