Poem: Wheat and Tares

While most people are familiar with

the principle of ‘sowing and reaping’,

it can be difficult to distinguish

between Fact and Fiction; gleaning

the Truth sometimes takes time, so

that the authentic and the fake can…

be properly separated. Sad jealousies

are found when the evil works of Man

bloom against the stark contrast of

God’s reality; seeing the good and bad,

subtly reinforces our understanding of

the wheat and tares; let us be…

Poem: Eternal Dialog

The relationship between Christ

and Yahweh is an eternal dialogue;

a constant communication ensures

His intercession isn’t a backlog

of burdens, borne out of the pain

He suffered and endured at Calvary.

Having been clothed with the dust

of Humanity, He understood beauty

that’s found in our soul’s nature.

After all, we were made to worship

Him openly, freely and easily, with

an unfeigned heart of fellowship.

Made in His image, with…

Poem: Pain and Disappointment

Your pain and disappointment

should never be a hindrance

from accomplishing the plan

and purpose God has for you.

Isn’t our Life… a sacrament,

meant to be divinely poured

out, to honor our Creator?

As His children, we receive

His instruction and veracity,

as we carry our holy sword

and Hope that keeps us humble.

Discern the contrast to pain

and disappointment; find God’s

Joy, Mercy and His acceptance

without the need… to…

Poem: Poetic Elegance

When will people observe,

the inner, poetic elegance…

of Christ Jesus in my life?

Does everyday nonsense of

my human routine, disguise

Him, while promoting strife?

Striving for self-control,

under an atmosphere of peace,

my spirit is subtly stirred

to honor my Lord; woven into

my life is His fabric of Truth,

that’s sustained by The Word.

Though I’m utterly imperfect,

my brokenness allows His Spirit

to quietly glide…

Poem: Guilty and Forgiven

Are the motivations of our heart,

in sync with The Word’s principles?

Do we recognize that we’re guilty

and forgiven… by our blessed Lord?

While some forces seem irresistible,

we know that the battle is not ours

and our responsibility is in the gap;

are we truly standing united in Faith,

meeting needs and praying, employing

The Word as our spiritual bootstrap?

We push forward, not permitting pasts…

Poem: Divine Mask

The divine mask of religion is an…

ugly misnomer of hatred and abuse,

used by the religiously empowered

to take ungodly advantage of weak,

spiritually challenged people,

whose Faith can be easily bruised.

It’s meant to hide the inability

of leaderships’ failure to walk in

an atmosphere of Love, as defined

by Christ Himself; with hostility

that’s masked, grace towards sin

is lacking, when The Word is used

as a club, since they’re…

Poem: A Clearer View

Without the experienced sadness

of our soul, we would seldom

appreciate the fullness of joy;

when overcoming Life’s bedlam

and its numerous complexities,

our ability to possess vision

and real, practical solutions

come as our personal decisions

to willingly trust in The Lord,

are divinely realized. One day,

a clearer view or perspective

will be spiritually conveyed

to us, under the…

Poem: Subtle Maneuvers

With divine insight, subtle maneuvers

of Faith can guide us… on a daily basis;

God’s promises and principles keep us…

safely grounded in His spiritual oasis.

God’s challenge to us is… to trust Him;

His Son paid the heavy cost of Salvation,

whereby all of Mankind may have inclusion

as a family member… of an eternal Nation.

Poem: A Taste of Psalm 1

We’re definitely blessed,

to know that we’re not…

blown about, like chaff;

if we perform, as taught,

then we’ll steer clear of

the ungodly, their counsel

and unforeseen troubles.

Via Jehovah’s holy council,

we delight in His Tenets,

Law, Principles, New Mercies

and Grace everyday; our lives

are planted as… sturdy trees

beside Christ’s fresh rivers

of everlasting, living waters;…

Poem: Confessions of My Brokenness

Emotional scars, not wounds, document

the totality of my Life experiences;

even though my spirit hasn’t yet shed

its temporary, earthly encasement,

this fleshly clay of human brokenness

cautions me to always be ever mindful

of my blessed Lord and His sacrifice.

Pretending to overlook the preciousness

of this gift of Life, that was bestowed

to me, was an act of absolute foolishness

that kept me apart from Him; ignorance…

Poem: Connected to Hope?

Can you really expect to cope,

if you’re not connected to Hope?


Faith in Christ is a requisite;

let’s not be… overly delicate 


in discussing this matter today;

He alone is the Life, Truth and Way!


Our need for a real relationship

with Him, pushes us towards kinship;


after all, we’re to be joint-heirs

and strive to be spiritually aware 


of our Heavenly responsibilities!…

Poem: Unveiled Faces

Unlike Moses, we should live…

with unveiled faces, letting

the Light of our Faith shine;

as His Children, we’re getting

favor among men; with clear eyes,

smiles and a bright disposition,

our efforts will be pleasing unto

The Lord, as we honor His position

as King of kings; He divinely rules

and reigns in our lives and hearts.

His holy promises remain steadfast

and His Holy Spirit will never depart

from us; as His human candles,…

Poem: Facing Adversity

One of the many secrets,

for facing Life’s adversity

is a change of perspective;

adjusting the lens, we see

things from a Heavenly view-

whereby old problems are seen

as new opportunities, teeming

brightly, unsullied by routines

of dull, antiquated thinking.

Address all challenges head on,

without any semblance of fear;

employing some spiritual brawn

ensures that final solutions

can be found and implemented;

Poem: Tranquility

Tranquility can’t be obtained

from external sources; ultimate

peace must come from within…

one’s own soul; when trained

by the local Church, ideals

of Truth’s tenets are taught;

they’re meant to elevate our

thinking, whereby what’s real

or true… becomes much clearer.

Life is simplified as false steps

are avoided; self-confidence grows

with Faith’s maturity; when nearer

to Jehovah, our Life is enhanced!

For His peace…

Poem: Crumbs

The World’s perception of Christianity

is generally, an unimpressed disappointment;

we’re viewed as a collection of mongrel mutts,

housed at the local dog pound, foolishly

chasing rainbows for our lost contentment.

Although we’re not domesticated watchdogs,

collared and chained to the Master’s table

while begging for spiritual scraps of Faith,

they believe that we’re hoping for crumbs

to overcome a meager…

Poem: Mannequins

Oh, those store mannequins

with their pretty, empty heads

and unending, plastic smiles,

are forever standing, never dead

on their small, well-heeled feet.

As prime examples of fortitude,

they’re ready to make a sale…

at your expense; smug attitudes

can be imagined, as they strike

poses with ease and flexibility.

Do they mirror us, as placeholders

in Life? Having potential energy,

they remain lifeless in display Hell;…

Poem: Can I Love… What God Sees in Me?

Between self-deprecation

and ideas of lowliness,

who am I to believe, that…

I’m completely unlovable?

When can I love… what God

sees in me? Is my Creator,

wrong in thinking that I…

have value? Does this flesh

prevent me from being fully…

submerged in righteousness?

I’m of the humble opinion,

that His wisdom is greater

and far more knowledgeable

than my own; His judgment

remains unquestionable; He

Poem: This Side of Salvation

There are times, when we all need to

turn away from the things of this World;

though sinful behaviors can be pleasing,

we must live boldly with Faith unfurled!

How can we contemplate or desire living

without God’s great Love and Salvation?

Can we even afford to wastefully spend

our precious time with sad frustrations,

knowing that we may find ourselves in

Hell’s eternity with no possible escape?…

Poem: Now is the Time

The time for decisions is NOW;

for tomorrow is… not promised.

Open up your spirit to Christ;

heed the words of the psalmist

and grow by the tenets of Faith.

Now is the time for Salvation,

which is acceptable in His eyes;

Upon The holy Word’s foundation,

we’re supposed to stand, as we

fight the good fight of Faith;

so press and move forward in Him,

until reaching… Heaven’s gate.

Procrastination isn’t the answer,

for we’ll…

Poem: Live Fearlessly

Three hundred sixty-five times,

we’re been instructed to not be

afraid; therefore, we’re to live

fearlessly with the revelation

knowledge of Who, God really is.

Troubles occur in Faith’s climb,

when the human ego fails to walk

within the Godly principles of

Love, Peace and Discernment; all

deal with unwanted issues, that

pop up unexpectedly. Accountability

remains; we’re liable to take stock

and be responsible for our…
