Karma

So many jokes I hear of

Some offer a puddle of treason

And others shock me by mocking me

I’m so stubborn just give me a cupboard of dishes

And I’ll switch with you

Because soon you will be getting dished

what you are due


The echoes of the hallways

 perform on this scene

 as a tempered beat

of peoples feet

So much confusion meets my ears

As I have them open

hoping to hear

 the secrets of the women

coming here

To meet me for lunch

I’m heading

to go shopping with them

We’re going to find

 all the sales and deals of the day

What a wonderful afternoon

Full of lobbying and hopping

 from store to store

We were born for this


Changing times bring me to sigh

I wash away my tears

Hoping to rid myself of my fears

The fire that prospers my spirit

Is also what I hear of as the cure

For my despair

Come to me

And bring me

what also sings to me


Love, what an odd position you put me in

Telling me that we have to move for your job

Let me prove my love for you doesn’t depend

On our address

I love you and will follow you anywhere


The raindrops fall to the petals of the flowers

The leaves fall from the trees

This storm brings glory

Leaving behind a touch of seasons changing

So many blessings come from what seems to breed turmoil

The bees may hide and the branches may fall

But after all is gone and over

I know there will be more power given to the ones

That honor their own shower of forgiveness


MEMORIES

Standing sideways leaves her body to be but a silhouette

Slightly in the shade she moves closer to the tree

As she glances to her left she sees the marking of an imprinted heart

This art was formed in memory of her true love

Some have said he is deceased but she knows his soul always lives


Endless

Lord, my castle is my perception of life

So tall and wide are my hopes and dreams

Never yielding to my fears

but keeping the field of green pastures nourished and watered

All of my days are fruitful and let my mind and heart

Continue to grow in what leads me to my passions

So wonderful are your ways

Always reminding me to ration

Never let me fail as you teach me to be blind to the world

You reach me in a fashion that escorts goodwill

And your ways are mighty


Wedding vows

My vows to you play into a passion like the rays of the sun

So tenderly is my heart yearning to be one with you

On our journey together

 Let’s always remember to promote goodwill In each other

And let’s never give into failure

As we walk down this road that leads us to divinity

 let’s always hold dear our God who made us one

And lets us always cheer for each other

 as if we carry the tune to our destiny


Drifting in the sea

I swear I will be

A unit of compromise today

And tomorrow you will Stare

at the sores on my feet

I will not judge you

I know you are helpless


Dripping in esteem

I cure my beginning

Of arthritis

In my mind

I’m so old

Can I find my last

Memory?

And will it show

Me my true

Endeavors?
