Dear Lord, please find me
somebody to love.
God replied, no,
not just one love.
I give you an ocean
of eternal love
found only in faith,
poetry and music.
From this special place,
you will find love
like you have never known,
from kindred spirits
around the world,
space and time,
to give you a glimpse
of the divine.

There is greater evil in this world,
And greater good, than we ever perceive.
There is far more wrong, and far more right,
Than we ever believe.
There is only ourselves out there,
And whatever we imagine.
There is just our self to turn to,
To retain our balance.
It isn't what we meet in life
But how we choose to meet it.
It isn't what turns out in life
But what we do about it.

In the shadow of sleeping Kings,
soldiers, and poets,
comes another battlefield day,
man against man, invisible wars,
hell’s fury unleashed among trees.
Yet, upon the rocky shore,
angels dance and sing,
reminding us there is something more
Beauty glints among broken things.
Hope is on the horizon.
So on these solemn days,
let us find something...

Will you raise your voice for the oppressed
Will you demand Governmental redress
Will you speak on things that truly matter
Will you allow this illusion to truly shatter
Will you plant the seeds in the ears of youth
So they can discover the yield of truth
Will you speak up Will you scream
Will you have faith Will you dream
Will you turn up your volume for the silenced

What is this dark energy
cloaking the universe
threatening to consume me,
wrap me in a weighted blanket
of silent abyss.
Some days I’m tempted
to dive into the black hole,
see what all the fuss is about,
but I know if I do, I will take
a generation or two of
fragile minds with me.
Weakness is not my legacy.
I have to stay strong,
be my family’s guiding li...

The saying "speak your truth"
Doesn't apply to me.
My truth is the nail in my hand
It's a crown of thorns, mocking
Everything I believe.
Maybe I won't speak unless spoken to
Like a child.
My truth is nothing compared to
The universe You created, but
Somehow you still care.
My truth is being swept up in
Your love for me.
Maybe I will speak my truth.

The dream that binds
Given to you
That hears a voice
And runs to find
The heart that tries
For something new
Run to and fro
And back again
To find it all
The tender kiss
Veiled spirits cry
Of a certain truth
That love ...

After the pandemic,
I hope we remove our masks,
find more reasons to smile,
have more patience,
keep the faith,
help each other however we can.
remember what we're here for,
live, laugh, love.
I hope you find strength
to move your mountains,
courage to carry on,
seize every opportunity
to live the After now.

She has a beauty that shines from within
A light that never grows dim
Her candle goes not out by night
And the radiance inside her, ever bright
When the wind blows,
Her flame - it holds
She thrives, she sparks
She glows, she grows.

I’ve weathered storms that I thought would drown me
I’ve learnt to soar in winds I thought would consume me
Out of the ashes must rise a new Phoenix
Being refined by fire
Through it, I’ll rise higher
The flames provide the fuel
As I soar to my strength
Refined by fire
A faith that stands.

The hard part about all this is that you already found new love
You decided she was better than me that she is enough
The words you said, "to infinity and beyond" we're all a lie and you left me when all I ever wanted was compassion,understanding, and love
But the day you walked out, I learned the truth about life.
I learned that the only person that could make me strong was God

Blessed be the silver spoons
Which feed us till we’re replete.
Blessed be the dream-filled moons
Which oversee us with glee.
Ambitious, aren’t we?
The moons illume
A thousand seas
And take us to
Places and people unseen.
Vagabonds, aren’t we?
We hold the power to love and seduce,
To ensnare and release
These people and places till insanity ensues,
Till blooming roses fuse into debr...

clouds my view
at a quarter til two.
I don’t understand why
my muse avoids me like the flu,
when a simple poem or song will do.
Wise words to help me understand
why true love passed me by
in this lifetime.
Why wrong choices,
that felt right at the time,
left me alone in this abyss
where my better self
silently bears witness
to my shr...

Have you given up on me have I given up on you
What is it we really can do as we look like fools
Can't see the future past my own dreams
But can you say your truly free
Don't need no blessed beads.
Don't need no lucky rabbit's feet.
Just need our leader's minds to be free.
Instead of thinking of a destructive ideology
They have a death wish for...

Lost boy, find your way home
Reach out your arms
You’re no longer alone
Lost boy, please don’t be scared
There’s a safe place waiting
You just need to get there
People may judge you
And that is OK
If they have a problem
We can keep them at bay
Thoughts and feelings are normal
Its everyday life
The future is yours
So keep that in sight
Lost boy, why are you afraid
It’s not your ...

Resistance is futile.
You will not find rest
as long as I am near,
whispering in your ear.
STOP, right now.

ready to bathe you,
I am your muse,

The price of life,
The price of love,
The price of peace,
The price of success,
The price of fame
The price of freedom,
The price of discipline
The price of faith,
Everything has a price.
What is the cost,
of the life you seek?
Are you willing ...

A magenta sky
greets my morning sigh.
Another majestic day,
lost in the minutia of life.
paralyzing dream sabers.
Download another book,

Escape, behind a waterfall
Dry your eyes,
face your fears.

In a world that is broken and full of crime and hate
There are people who still have faith
Faith that can move mountains and make things well
There are people who believe with all their heart that things can heal
They believe that with faith anything and everything is possible
Through pain, death, and brokeness we must always remember to have a little bit of FAITH
Let God take th...

Lord mold me into
the loving person
you created me to be.
Help me praise,
instead of complain.
instead of frown.
instead of down.
Reach out to the lost,
so they can be found.

You lie awake in bed with your eyes swollen from the tears and the pain
Wondering why you deserve to hurt
You play back scenes in your head thinking , " Was it all fake!"
The smiles, the love, the times we laid together in bed, talking about children, and houses by the lake
You close your eyes and tears fall down your face and you cry to God , " Please, please make it all go away!"

The oak tree
Unwavering and sturdy
Tells us how to be:
Don’t break so easily
In the slightest change of wind
Climbing back through my childhood bedroom window
Landing on shards of broken glass
Crimson oozes slowly
As I pray each stab is its last
So much has shaken me since my first landing
Each step taken cuts deeper than the beginning

What do you do when the person that once brought you love brings you nothing but pain.
What do you do when the person you gave your heart too took it and threw it away.
What do you do when your heart beats so fast it feels like it is coming out of your chest.
And the love you once had starts to change into tears and hate.
And that person that once brought you comfort and made you feel...

Hello, can anyone hear me?
Hello, are you still there listening to my cries?
Listening to me as I fall on my knees, feeling so empty as this world falls apart
Hello, God! I need you! We all need you!
Our world slowly falls and we all begin to feel empty wanting human contact, human touch
God silently watches us and our empty lonely hearts
Waiting, quietly, for us all to call his ...

I enjoy bringing tough guys and gals to their knees.
I can make everyone in my path cry like babies.
You think you can stop me with drugs or alcohol?
That’s a fool’s game.
It will drive you insane.
Your candy doesn’t keep me away
anymore than a cross stops suffering.
The only escape is to free me
from the one place you fear to go.
I reside deep within your mind.
Tuesday 7th April 2020 4:11 am
Your heart beats fast
You’re love is so strong
I can hear it like beating drums
You love me even though I’m broken
You love me even though I’m weak
You’re love is unconditional to me
I fall on my knees crying, yelling , “God why do you love me!”
The voice whispers back to me, “ Because you are beautiful because I made you as a part of me!”
The light shines bright

Lord, thank you
for this gift
Please help me
with the poems
Help me write
from a place
rather than ego.
Help me project
you give me.

Is it a sin for your muse
to inspire mine,
provide momentary escapes
from loneliness, pain,
the daily grind,
give words to fantasies
of the mind,
connect soul ties.
It’s hard to believe
a God of love
would consider musing
If it is, that’s not a religion
to which I subscribe.

It is hard having faith
When you feel so much pain
It is hard to obey when you feel so betrayed
It is hard to smile and put on your pretty face
When your whole world has seems to have crumbled
But then that voice comes back to you and says , "Look how far you've come, look how strong you are!"
The voice tells you everything is going to be just fine
You breathe, close your eyes...

How can it be that you
are on the same
spiritual path as me...
God exists as
We keep coming back
as various entities
until we learn
Love is eternal

Writing is our way of

to find our flame.
Kindred spirits we are,

How many times
have you been in love?
How many times
have you let your heart
take off the gloves?
How many times
have you thanked
the good Lord above
for sending your soulmate
to be your one true love?
How many times?
Once is enough.
Twice is nice.
Three times is divine!

Over and over,
I see your name
like a tattoo
on my brain.
not on deed or fame,
but simply a name.
A tag, reminding us
who we are:
who despite living
an alternate reality,
believes in passion,
love, happily ever after...

One life is swell,
the other is a living hell.
Trying to bridge the great divide,
but the chasm is too wide.
Chasing light where darkness resides.
A grey goose gouges my eyes,
pecks my mind.
Naked. Nowhere to hide.
Cowering to the joker inside.
Praying God sends his army
to help me make the climb,
out of the abyss to my sober life.

I used to think it would be an honor
to usher in a thousand years of peace,
a willing martyr to stop senseless suffering,
but I had no idea of the atrocities
that would ensue between men,
or the loss of innocent children
that we would witness with despair
Come now Lord, end the madness,
flood evil with love,
make our planet a peaceful place,
before all hope i...
