You think you got it all together, With all your “perfect” works; Tithing and fasting you brag, In your heart arrogance lurks. Don’t point the finger as if, You have no guilt of your own; Putting down that tax collector, You’re true colors you have shone. Look to him who barely lifts, His eyes as … Continue reading Poem: Arrogance Lurks
A rich master entrusted his money, To a manager who squandered; Confronted the manager acted, On a plan that he pondered. He needed protection, From being put to shame, So he keenly made deals, Indebted to him people became. The master was pleased, At the shrewdness of this man; His threats had lit a fire, … Continue reading Poem: Money Management
The reception is planned, Who do you invite? Friends, relatives, or neighbors, Who have a fortunate plight?

I must be vunerable again, Lest I lose this opportunity, Where love can heal our hearts, To rejoice in … Continue reading Poem: Hurt and Scared
Things that I know, Words that I have many times read, I need to be reminded of, So my soul will continually be fed.
