On Speed

Crash, crash
Thud, thud 
Lives speed-ed up
Whirling around
A distracting hub
Of meaningless behavior

Don’t think for yourself
How dare you!
Especially about a spirit?
Ignore, ignore
The impertinent chore
Of believing in 
A Savior!

Believe every word they say
To guide both night & day
Allow that talk show host
Over you to hold complete sway!
Until he fails to break
The enlightened spell
& you at last awake
Yourself to embrace
In your Lord/Creator
A cleaner, purer faith!

How?

How?

How do You see
Someone as small as
Me 
But somehow You do
& as I gaze up at You
You smile down

I am your creation,
Your child
Launched into paradise
But by our own hands
It became quite wild

Restless, lawless
Open rebellion
Our great fall
You tell upon
The pages of 
Your Book

Wandering lost
In pain
Why do we repeat
Over & over again
All that old evil
All that old same

So inside I must look
For guidance
For a better hinderance
To my lost behavior
& so, You gave me
Your Son, my Savior
Praise You Lord God!

Return to me
I will return to you
So, each day I try to follow
That my re-birth
May be renewed!!

Quietly Soft but Deadly

Quietly Soft but Deadly

It may start,
(for most it does)
Quietly & softly
In the heart
Deception 
Seeking reception
Into your innermost recesses
This will be your greatest test

Large numbers 
Consciences so burned
They will not recognize
So it will quickly seize
Its chance to take hold

satan will try to sneak in
a foothold he lusts to win
Evil hoping to replace
The least little taste
Of Christ’s lovely perfection

The darkness says
Christ does not exist
But the strongest weapon yet
In its arsenal
To persuade you satan
Does not exist

This you must do
Go to any lengths
Use all your own
& lean on the always there
Of Christ’s strength!!

I don’t know(demons)

Don’t Know (demons)

I don’t know 
Why you would give me
such experiences
Surely you could have found
Someone of more uniqueness

An orphan from birth
One of the least of the least
Assuredly you could have
Chosen someone less
Beaten to their knees

Demons are real
Come only your safety to steal
Roaming from another realm
Come to destroy any peace

The first was only a black blob
I suppose from all the darkness
Through the eons he had trod
Speaking Jesus’ name 
Was the only way 
To end the purpose 
for which he came
To bring me only pain

The second attempted to
Look like our God
On a throne he sat
Extended a hand
On this one I slipped,
Trusted
He touched my lips
Next morning, I was sick

The third, well
Looking like a child
Fearful when it smiled
Trying to beguile
Teeth, pointed, razor sharp
After one look
Asked about my written book 
In appearance only stark
Shade of black and grey
Only with Jesus’s name
Did it disappear
No longer to terrify 
In my ear

Perhaps the most fearful
In appearance of all
A grown man, strong and tall
No color to brighten his blackened visage
I said ‘In the name of 
Jesus of Nazareth, begone
Arguing replied, ‘Doesn’t work like that’
Screaming I answered
Oh yes it does,
Repeated Jesus’ name
As before all the others
He left 
Running from the light
Of our universe’s Master
To hide from His glory,
His power’s might
Our Prince of Peace
Lover of our souls!
Eternity’s Most Beautiful &
Wonderous Sight!

A Daughter, A Son

A Daughter, A Son

We are his daughters, his sons
If your Father were under attack
Would you just turn tail
And run?
In my heart, I hope not

When they deny His Name
They abuse His Spirit
Of
Perfect Love, Joy, Peace
Patience, Goodness, Kindness
To name a few
But it is up to all of us
To me and you

An evil, destructive satan
Wants to destroy all of us
And watching the world today
He does it without much effort 
Or a fuss
God’s disciples we are meant 
To be
So our Father’s love & forgiveness
Every eternal soul here may see

It truly is a battle for our
Hearts & minds
So step up,
Join the front lines
Even pain-filled at times
As it might be
Because,
Without us in the war
The enemy has already won!

A Love Song:
(A Part Of)

It is like I was created to be
Always a part of Your group
Your Holy Trinity
A smaller part
As I bend down
Worship on my knees

It is Your gift to be like you
Should this not
My worldly values askew?
A world so out of balance
Literally out of its mind
Rolling, tumbling on
A very, very thin line

Not even those lost rebellious angels
Did you dare to die for
Only over us Your Spirit’s healing
You wished to pour
To enable re-birth
Through all the light
& darkness of this universe’s 
Massive girth

In truth, nothing and no one else
Did you create to
Reflect the goodness of
Yourself but us
Thank you, Dear Lord
In You only may 
I completely live & trust!
