I Understand

I understand
I must be truthful, honest
Of course full of courtesy.

My question is… 

Does that entitle me
To a blessed life
One that’s just ordinary?

Brave And Courageous

April 2, 2014


Brave and Courageous
They stood on a hill
All together
They stepped forth with one will.

One assembled cars
While two tended farms
And another nursed the ill.

Honest and caring ruckus until
Obligation carried them on paths diverse
I remember still.

Their lives unsurpassed
In honesty, loving and caring
Working shoulder to shoulder
With family, friends and foe.

They may have passed
A long, long time ago
But I feel them still standing
Beside me here
On that same hill.

Have I Been Honest?

April 7, 2013

Have I been honest?
Have I been right?
Doesn’t matter it’s working tonight.

Isn’t it funny and mostly alright
Why not wander
To the far side of happy tonight?
