Tales and Fables

I can't tell where I'm going

Don't know where I've been

But I feel I'm moving quickly

And I guess that's all there is

 

I've gone round in my head

Side to side within

Reason had too much sense

Foolishness left me behind

Walking to a dirt-road crossroad

Guess I'll say hello

 

Whiskey from the heavens

Daniels in my veins

Traveling to hell on that southern gothic train

Baptized my humanity in the river

Left my soul with the morning star

Guess I've lost it all

 

They say that those with nothing left

Have nothing left to lose

Well hell, I'm far past that

With no future, and no past

Don't mess with me, son

Or my face will be your last

 

Whiskey's long gone now

But the moon's still shining bright

And there's heaven to gain

But hell to pay

The brass is still warm

But I'm cold as the grave

A Tendency For Love In A Forlorn Hope (An Affected Poem)

 

 











A Tendency For Love In A Forlorn Hope 



 

 


 

Are we falling away? This is just supposed to be a beginning.  Our

hearts tore open, jutting out of our chests.

 

My imploding rib cage is

so heartfelt as if tiny sharp things are piercing through my skin

—especially in that seeming

—point of no return.

 

 

I kept steady and not wanting anything more, out of this;

Except, now that our fates intertwine.

 

 

Now what am I supposed to do

to unleash my whole self 

to you?

 

You're great and nice—at that;

I am out of words.

 

Your wiles foreshadow me.

"In the Name of God"

by Jeph Johnson

 

Why is it okay for Muslims to actually name themselves after Mohammed, but no one is even allowed to make an image of him?

 

Then you have the Christians who are able to make countless and absurdly inaccurate images of Christ but seldom name their kids "Christ".

 

Well, there are those Hispanic people who name their kids "Jesus",  but it is pronounced differently.

Peace be With You

May you sleep in peace tonight

And have happy dreams without fright

When you wake to the suns new rays

And the stars sleep as you start your day

Know that you're blessed and I hope you see

I'm thinking of you, so think of me

In troubled times you may not always see

But I am he one who calmed the raging sea

I'm always there with you hand in hand

To carry you through the sinking sand

So cast your fears to the Lord above

So that you may know that I am Love

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I woke up in the middle of the night and wrote this poem.

St. Jerome

St. Jerome in the Wilderness

Master, Master come to me,

                                                                                            Savior, Savior hear my plea.           

 

O Lord I understand my punishment.

I will not flee this banishment.

Until a time that you are done,

For you alone art the holy one.

 

Through temptation I have stayed,

Loyal in your gaze and unafraid.

I bear my cross as you bore yours,

Even with the window outdoors.

 

I use this quill to help you Lord,

As I hear the echo of a far off chord.

I praise your name to the land,

And rejoice when I hear the voices of the sand.

 

Amen, Amen I say to thee,

 

Amen, Amen please set me free.

The`Children`of`Pharoh

The`Pharohs`watched`the`great`river`as`the`sun`set.

In`their`time,`they`built`a`glorious`city,

At`the`center`was`a`pyramid.

It`was`a`symbol`of`victory.

Burried`in`the`sands`of`time,

Who`watches`over`the`children`of`Pharoh?

Kidnapped`and`taken`to`a`hostile`camp,

They`awaited`their`fate`with`sorrow.

Butchered`by`those`who`rule`by`fear,

The`Pharohs`watched,

And`shed`a`tear.

The`ferry`crossed`the`tranquil`waters`slowly.

It`carried`the`slain`of`Tripoli.

While`the`Valley`of`the`Pharohs`awaited`its`guests,

The`slain`saw`the`great`pyramids`shine`like`gold,

And`a`city`so`splendid,

Void`of`darkness,

It`was`a`sight`to`behold.

Although`killed`by`an`enemy`insane,

The`reward`beyond`was`a`precious`gain.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This`is`a`poem`for`those`who`suffer`persecution`from`the`cruel`and`

heartless.

The Trio

The way, the truth, the life

Its words that i dont question

But you cant have the trio

Without having the confession

 

 

For every sin that you allow

To grab at your heart

It gives ground to the enemy

To let destruction start

 

 

He tries to take away happiness

And replace it all with pain

But theres one place he cant get

So he attacks at the brain

 

 

Because with God in your heart

The Devil will never win

He can knock all he wants

But he will never get in

 

 

I read it now in Hebrew

Where God will never leave me

Even inside a whale

He didnt leave Jonah, Did he?

 

 

We put too much faith

Into the work of man

When they say I CANT

God says I CAN

 

 

Through our failures and mistakes

Man will try to condemn you

But Jesus outstreched his hands

And said this is what ill do

 

 

With nails through his hands

He hung on that tree

Took away all those failures

He did it for me

 

 

Now walking through this earth

We have many other alleys

But if we trust in God

He will bring us through the valleys

 

 

Our Holy Father is waiting

Sitting there with his Son

Saying dont worry about the Devil

The battles already done!!!

Let Go

Folder: 
Songs

You were born to lose

As you sit upon your dead throne

Decay in your bones

This, the life you choose

 

You’re cursed

With your own disease

Eating yourself away

Die again every day

 

Can’t you let go (Never)

Let Go (Never)

Let Go (Never)

Never let go

 

Give up the fight

You’re dead inside

Can’t keep yourself alive

Do what is finally right

 

Let Him in

He stands and knocks

At your ruined gates

It’s not too late

 

Let go, He’ll catch you

Let go, He holds you now

Let go, He picks you up

Let go, you’ve had enough

 

Let go and take the jump

Fall into His arms

Rest secure from your fears

Because He’ll

Never (Never)

Let Go (Let Go)

Never (Never)

Never let go

Daddy

Folder: 
Light and Dark

Be all I see, Lord

For this I pray

Guide me and love me

Every day

Show me your goodness

Through hardness and strife

And I’ll love you, Daddy

For all of my life

 

Be Thou my vision

And give me Your eyes

So I can see other’s

Pain through their lies

Give me Your heart, Lord

To love as You do

For I once was like them;

And You made me new

 

Help them to see, Lord

The love that we share

Your son, my Daddy

‘Cause of Calvary there

Help them to know You

As loving and kind

Creator of all things

Glory divine

 

Give them the vision

As they look at this world

That they all are special

Every boy and girl

That they’re lost, but You made

A way to come back

And they’re all welcome

To the love that they lack

 

Your arms are wide open

For you’ve paid our price

Blood to save us

Love’s sacrifice

Can’t they see You?

On Calvary’s tree

Giving forgiveness

Dying for me
