As God…

I pray You help me see,
All people as you see them.
The beauty within their hearts,
Even when it’s well hidden.

I pray You help me look,
Past their stains and flaws.
To a soul born to search for light,
Make transparent life’s inflicted scars.

I pray You teach me how to love,
Even the ones who cause me harm.
Help me see their pain and struggles,
And grant them the gift of compassion.

We are all connected,
Each heart in a living symphony.
Intertwined into one fabric,
And it’s You that we need.

Please hear my prayer God.
I know it’s only You,
Who can unite and restore all hearts.
Help me see Your children as You do…

Amen

Swing and Tree…

Swing and tree
Friends, and company
Sharing the same memories
Dreaming the same dreams
Working collectively
With trust and loyalty
Through seasons, changing
In trials and storms, enduring
Destined to be swing and tree
Throughout their eternity…

Love Is The Answer…

image

Tit for tat world,
You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.
What have you ever done for me?
I owe you absolutely nothing.
I’ve given you a lot,
You should now give me what you’ve got.

Selflessness lacking.
Unconditional love crashing.
It’s all “me,me,me” everlasting.
Giving Is just too taxing.
Get ahead, possessions amassing.
Hurting those in the way, people-slashing.

Will we change with recognition?
Can we accept conviction?
Alter our perspective regarding division?
Connecting humanity with new vision?
Is cooperative unity such an abstraction?
Are we willing to exit our self-centered prisons?

It begins with me, it begins with you,
Love is the answer; let’s start anew

Hope Lives On…

The impact of evil amongst a canvas of blue

Three planes hit their targets led by a few

Such devastation, such a catastrophic blow

On that September morning, who could have known…

 

That this day would be the last they would ever see

That no longer would they know the touch of their friends and family

No longer would they hold their child and tuck them into bed

No longer would they see their smile or hear their laughter again

 

America at rest, comfortable with their freedom and lives

Going along each day without thought of an impending strike

The shock, the tears, the hopelessness, the fear and the rage

A hint of terrors lingering power was preserved on a frozen page

 

Forever life would change, America eternally altered

Defense would strengthen, our Nation would not be conquered

Terror showed its ugly, foul and evil face, for all the world to see

Yet, in error they underestimated the strength and determination of their enemy

 

Families would say good-bye to their loved ones, as they left to fight the unwelcomed war

Our military would fight to secure the freedom we hold dear, perhaps stronger now than before

Humanity was stunned; spirits united and began to heal

And while we were knocked down for a while, we stood strong to rebuild

 

They can knock down our buildings and take many human lives

They can try to transmit the fear born of the ugliness they harbor inside

They can rejoice at their “victory” and carry on as if they’ve won

But the Spirit of America and civil humanity will never be overcome!
