Secure My Place

Can it happen,
The thing that I most fear?
Could I lose my freedom,
When it is so near?

To Be an Enemy

Don't want to be an enemy But I have to tell the truth Their ways are against God They need to hear reproof

Poem: My Idle Words

I try hard not to be that, One slip of the tongue, I become it. Thoughtlessly I spoke, About a situation, I don’t really know. It opens up doors, Speculations of the heart, Unwarranted, unnecessary. I’m a contributor, In producing animosity, That destroys peace. I repent where I’ve ruined, My example before men, By my…

Poem: Arrogance Lurks

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…

Poem: Money Management

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,…

Poem: Picking a Fight

I will take everything you say, And make it wrong, Turn it into something it’s not, Some nasty old song. Evil’s not your intent, But I will make it that way. My sensitive mind is made up, No matter what you say. I want to push you, For my own selfish reason, To unfairly provoke…

Sunday Reflection: The Cup

"My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done." Matthew 26:42 The cup is laid before Him, The cup of woe, The cup of anguish. He begs not to drink it, Not to taste its death; Maybe there’s another way. “Father, please let it pass, If it’s possible, I…

Poem: Hurt and Scared

It hurts, Our shaky past; Will this time be different? Will the changes last? I want to be close once more, To have that loving connection, But I'm scared to give myself, Over to your affection. I must be vunerable again, Lest I lose this opportunity, Where love can heal our hearts, To rejoice in…

Poem: Reminders

Things that I know, Words that I have many times read, I need to be reminded of, So my soul will continually be fed. To revisit simple things, Even when they seem trite, Gives my mind a boost, Confirming my inner light. It's not always about the new, But delighting in the old; Remembering the…

Poem: To Feel Heard

Not in the mood to be calm, I want to be angry with you. I don't want to pause to listen, Just lash out my frustrations. Now that I'm done, Please get away from me, I can't be around you, I'm too upset to think. But alone in my room, Thinking is what I do,…

Poem: Weddings Are Convicting

A couple deep in love, With stars in their eyes, A future so hopeful; Do I still have these ties? The godly minister, Gives the covenant roles, Guidance from their Creator; Am I upholding our souls? Promises are pronounced, Vows to always stay true, Even through great hardships; Have I seen mine through? Weddings are…

Poem: Worldly Rebellion

It feels liberating, To allow your thoughts to go there. You know it's not right, But it just feels good to be free of fighting it; To allow it to flow through your mind, And feel the excitement it brings in the moment. Then reality hits, Of what you've just done to your heart. You…
