Writing this poetry, can
be a cathartic process;
it allows me to explore…
all that’s within me. By
doing so, I am able, to
uncover the inner finesse

that He has placed inside
me. Simultaneously, I am
clearly pushed outside of
my comfort level; between
sharing my work, finding
what’s in me and The Lamb’s

expectation… of my heart,
I find the experience of
writing extremely humbling
and satisfying. Hopefully,
my poetry’s quality will  
improve, as I voice Love…

from my human perspective.

Poem: Nothing
Without the Presence of Yahweh,
we’re essentially nothing; we
temporarily possess His breath
and He rightfully expects us…
to be productive. When His sway

over us is evident, we produce
actions… based in Love. The
consistent and ongoing things
we do, show the trustworthiness
of our character. Can we deduce

the trajectory of our ongoing
maturation of our Faith? No;
our arrogance of knowing would
deter our path of humility! So
we go… forward, transforming

our lives… under God’s power!

Poem: Evening Shadow
As I, approach the twilight
of my existence, my days are
akin to an evening shadow; I
am withered, like the grass
that’s overgrown. The plight

of my humanity, is not new;
further discussions can only
reveal the severe vanity of
self-wallowing in such mundane
thoughts. The morning’s dew

and dawn greets me, with great
expectations; His latest batch
of new mercies floods my soul.
I’m filled with His contentment,
as Death impatiently awaits…

my eventual, earthly demise.

Poem: Slender Portion
The glorious power of Christ’s
crucifixion transcends… all
thoughts of Human reasoning;
for the slender portion of one
drop of His blood provides Life

Everlasting to any man, willing
to humble himself, to ask for
forgiveness and to confess his
dependence on Yahweh. We’re not
worthy of the continual flowing

of His Mercy and Grace, without
a relationship with Him! Selah!
Everyday, each born-again child,
that is filled with gratitude
and thankfulness, should shout:

Thank You, Lord, for my redemption
and the wondrous gift of Salvation!

Poem: Hidden Dimensions
How can I, look within
myself, to discover the
hidden dimensions of…
my soul? Can unwanted,
lasting affects of sin

keep me forever blinded?
Can my human aspirations
of love, truth, beauty,
joy and fulfillment be
attained? An unrequited

relationship with Yahweh
strongly implies that His
Light isn’t present, for
others to see. So I must
be aware of what He says

about me; I’ve been made
uniquely in His Image,
an expression of His Love.
If I can be stilled, won’t
I find God and be swayed…

by the reality of Him?

Poem: Humbled?
The importance of our proper
attitude can’t be overstated;
are we, blessed children or a
sad bunch of spectral paupers,

unable to see our identity in
Christ? Do we understand, what
it means to be… humbled? Are
we, naively carrying our sins,

to justify our sense of guilt?
Are we willing to repent and
turn away from our wickedness?
Or do we prefer the soft silt

of Death… to cover our bones?

Poem: Thief
Most everyone understands,
the many cultures of human
violence; even sadder, is
the reluctant acceptance…
of evil. Veils of darkness
will hide the return of One,
as a thief… in the night.
  
Panic will erupt, as hands
are raised in fear; people
will be seeking answers, as
concerns of peace and safety
are gone. Missing Christians
from around this World, will
spark new debates; His Light
  
may scare the hell of those…
left behind; soon others will
realize the implications of a
mass exodus of believers and
the crisis of Faith; they’ll
have to reevaluate their weak
positions regarding God. Can
  
they now overcome sin? Clothes
will be torn in anguish, as the
pressure of Faith increases.
Will some find comfort, knowing
that may be killed for new Faith
or will they remain steadfast…
in their, ongoing lust for Man?

In Him, all things
are held together;
His desire is… for
Life to get better!

In Him, we’ve power
to become His sons

encompass everyone,

In Him, many are made

Poem: Purpose of Prayer
Could it be, that the ineffectiveness
of our prayers are directly linked to
the poor motivations… of our hearts?
Are we in pursuit of genuine holiness

and a relationship, with The One, Who
made the Heavens and the Earth? Can we
overcome ourselves and rise up as His
Children? Our Faith and Salvation, do

not relate to our personal actions; we
are saved by His Grace alone; the good
works, we perform, are an outward sign
of our love for Him. When will we see,

that we’re nothing… without Him? When
we strive, to understand, the truest
purpose of prayer, our spiritual eyes
are gradually opened before Him; then

we can see… our identity in Christ!

Poem: Satisfied In Him
God is most glorified in us,
when we are most… satisfied
in Him. Do we realize that our
Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus
  
sets the standard for living?
The practicality of real Faith
demands Love’s action each and
everyday; if we’re not giving
  
of ourselves, then what are we
really doing? Is humanity one
race of people, of various skin
tints? If we can begin, to see
  
Life, using the eyes of Christ,
then we’re on the lit path to…
personal victory, while being
an overcomer… of tiring strife.

Poem: An Enigmatic Faith?
Can Christianity, be considered, to
be an enigmatic Faith? Doesn’t one’s
thoughts regarding obscurity, relate
directly to one’s lack of personal
understanding? How can a true view
  
be obtained, without studying… The
Word? Having Christ as one’s Light
of Faith, real living develops with
transparency; when His contentment

Poem: Cautionary Tales
The Bible is replete with many
cautionary tales, of real people,
who have stumbled on their path
of Faith; like us, their journey

was fraught with unexpected woe.
Momentary mental lapses remind us,
of the need to capture detrimental
desires and thoughts; when we go,

anywhere without His Presence, we
take foolish risks. Are priorities
in alignment with His plan for our
lives? Are we, now hoping to see,

an escape from our accountability?
We must stay steadfast in our Godly
commitments and responsibilities;
if we fail, how will The World see…

that God is still relevant to Mankind?

Poem: Vulnerable
Many people are afraid of becoming
Christians; the concept of caring,
showing compassion, giving of one’s
self and resources, or being simply
vulnerable before others, can be…
unnerving. We know, that trusting

ourselves may be a risky proposition.
That’s why we continually lean on His
Strength, His Name, His Truth and His
Word. We’re not operating alone; and
we’re not meant… to do so. As we find
Faith’s inner steel in His Salvation,

it also provides the necessary footing
for us to move forward. We’ve no real
reason to fear the Darkness, for His
Light pierces it easily, when we speak
against it. Rise up; stand in Faith!
Without Him, we’re technically nothing.
Inspired by:

The best people possess a feeling for beauty,

they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.

Poem: Energized By Love
If we’re not energized by Love,
then our Faith will fall short
of His expectations; our desire
should be, to lovingly exhort…

others to enter into His Kingdom.
Enabling the lost to become saved,
demonstrates your love for God and
a genuine impartation, of wisdom
  
from Him, into your spirit; with
the peace of Christ, we are able  
to live with compassion and touch
the heart of souls. He enables…

us to live honorably, with absolute
tranquility, as we divinely produce
a lifetime of a supernatural, never
-ending crop of Faith’s passion fruit.

Poem: Like-Minded?
The stunted growth of the Church…
is spiritually sad and reflects
a continued inability of the Body
to operate in unity; between poor
leadership and overall ignorance,
souls are miffed, left in a lurch

of stagnant thinking. If we’re not
led by His Spirit and we’re blindly
conducting ourselves, without the
mind of Christ, then what will we…
really accomplish? If we are not
in His Word, what is being taught?

Fortunately, God is very patient;
His Grace, Mercy and Consolation
is freely given; we need to mature
now; we need to get out of these
spiritual hospital beds as soldiers.
Do we expect to receive outpatient

services… in Heaven for eternity?

Poem: Free Love
In its blind search of free
love, The World continues to
lust after it, even though
it’s already available to all,
who would grasp it. We see…

that Jehovah has already paid
the heavy price, as His Son
was crucified upon the Tree of
Calvary; the gift of Salvation
awaits acceptance; now laid

to waste, are Humanity’s sins.
Although we’ve been instructed
to choose Life, some prefer a
pathway to Death; a Light shines
and all, are… beckoned within

Heaven’s gates of eternity.

we acknowledge the Son’s sacrifice
and we should now willingly succumb

to His Kingdom’s plan. His interests
in Humanity, are well known; Christ

are we His bride or a faded mistress,

who has given up on having holiness?

complete and wholeheartedly; nothing
less is worthy of His righteousness!

seeing sisters and brothers

of His eternal Kingdom. Yet,

sacred principles, previously
into motion; and I’ve applied
His Truth to my life and can

I’m dearly clinging to The Cross

The grass I'm passing through,
The potent wine of joy to flood
Like a bubbling spring,
Warm hosannahs in my blood
That make me want to sing.

Poem: You, the Moon and Me
Like me, even that shining moon
occasionally weeps, as we spend
time remembering you; moments
of nostalgia creep into our times
of dreams and wistful thinking.
And yet, there is a vast emptiness
that stirs our spirits.

We sorrowful souls, sob throughout
the night; the coldness of dawn
crystallizes our tears into
the morning dew and its beauty
encourages us… to cry even more.
How can we bear the loss of you?

The arid ground, greedily absorbs
our sadness without visible remorse.
Forgotten and lifeless cobwebs,
with their torn threads, now adorn
the empty landscape that marks
the boundaries of our separation.

Your absence is deafening; the moon
and I discuss ideas about the taste
of your salty tears, that you shed
from mourning our shattered union.
However, the moon remains unerringly
quiet, regarding the time, you two,
spend together! And I’m left with an
impression of unresolved jealousy.

Will you two… silently lament the
isolation of our three aching hearts?
Oh wait; why are there distant sounds
of laughter, reverberating under this
new moon, while these tears of mine,
resume its unwanted flow?

We are being prepared
for another world- one
that we can’t imagine;
the future will scare

some people with fears
unknown; being forced
to trust an unseen God,
to get over the tears

of a lifetime of pain…
seems to exceed human
comprehension. Life can
change us; we will gain

experiences that stretch
us beyond our comfort. He
wants our companionship,
to partner with wretched

souls for His utmost glory.
Now there’s another world,
waiting on our appointed
arrival… to join His story

and bask in His Presence.
We’ll observe wonders that
will amaze us, including…
the pure, eternal essence

of Who, Yahweh is!

The primary failure of…
self-righteousness is that
you become your own god;
besides fouling true Faith,
you’ll never walk in Love,

since you’ll be the center
of a personal firestorm;
you’ll choose to manipulate
others for satisfaction or
gain; as a human tormentor,

you’ll never possess a peace
that’s real or everlasting.
All attributes of character
and humility will dissipate;
unable to discover a release

from Life’s miseries, you’ll
become so isolated, that the
numbness of your spirit will
unwittingly beckon Death’s
realm to be…  the solitary fuel

of your own destruction.

Poem: Unknown Future
We can trust an omniscient God,
with our unknown future, since
He transcends… Time’s boundary.
Though we remain humanly flawed,

we can possess a real Faith in
One, Who doesn’t lie, deceive or
tries to manipulate us. By using
our breath, we maintain within

us, the ability to reach Him and
soften His heart with our words;
as we pray, with an attitude of
repentance, inevitably we’ve hands

that are raised in total surrender.
Inspired by:
Jer 29:11; Prov 3:5-6, 23:17-18

Poem: Circle of Inclusion
A poor perception of Christianity
is the ongoing failure of the Faith
to treat all people evenly within…
a circle of inclusion; who will see

past the shortcomings of humanity,
in order to spiritually grow? Ideas
of our accountability, accompanied
by genuine, personal responsibility

dictate that we treat every soul
in the same manner of Love, without
thoughts of the trivial attributes
that separate us; under the control

of God’s Kingdom, we remain equals.
Since we’re supposed to serve one
another, shouldn’t we help everyone
with a mandate to perform God’s will?

Jam 2

Poem: Prayer of Repentance
God is aware of the ugliness
of our sin; not confessing to
Him, ensures that misery will
replace our joy; seriousness

of the Human condition should
not be an excuse that keeps us
from reaching out to Him in a
prayer of repentance. Could

we allow… known imperfections
to define us, when forgiveness
is readily available? How can
we choose to dismiss Salvation

when we possess His holy breath
and the chance to escape Death?

Psa 32, 33:6; Job 33:4

Poem: In No Other
When will Humanity shed…
his blinders of ignorance?
Salvation can’t be found…
outside of Christ’s death
and glorious resurrection.
Can our inherit arrogance,

which is questionably based
on the accumulation of data
that’s carefully culled, be
worth a future without God?
Nothing we claim, stops Him
from being the Alpha & Omega.

Acts 4:12; Rev 22:13

Poem: Human Expectations
We need to stop setting goals
and personal standards, based…
on the foolishness of our fears;
Human expectations, dumb notions
and the fickleness of desire is
no way to live. Measuring years

by our accomplishments is silly;
someone in the future will either
outdo us or destroy our efforts.
Can we create a meaningful legacy
that touches lives with God’s Love
or even move beyond… self-comfort?
Inspired by:
Luke 12:16-23; Eccl 3:20-22  and

If God always met our expectations,
He’d never be able to exceed them.

Poem: Empty Rhetoric
The words of empty rhetoric,
don’t impress the unsaved;
Love requires real actions
of Faith; one day, a grave

will contain soiled remnants
of how, we were perceived;
the memories others recall,
are what they often received-

by the witness of our lives.
Before men, we’re justified
through our works of Love;
yet, it’s Christ crucified…

that serves as the impetus
behind our true motivations;
He’s the standard for living
and grace against damnation

of our eternal souls.

Jam 2:24; Exo 17:15–16

Poem: Without Agendas
Loving people, without agendas
of hidden motives, is what God
desires from us; if we’re not
authentic, then we are frauds

who lack value… to His Kingdom.
Without the pureness of a heart,
that’s inclined towards Him, we
have nothing tangible to impart

to those, who fail to discover…
their sacred identities found in
Christ, a Savior, Who loves them.
Within Humanity, we’re children

who need to teach others… about
the divine connection and scarlet
thread that binds us together;
we’re a bride and not some harlot

selling herself, to gain attention
for the merits of His Salvation.
Inspired by:
Prov 16:2; 1 Cor 10:31; Isa 43:7;
Matt 5:8; Phil 4:8; 2 Cor 11:2

As long as we choose to move forward,
we can find the inward strength to…
hold onto our Hope; pain ends, when
we look to Christ and His Love for us.
Therefore, let’s adjust our backward

thinking, by cleansing our thoughts
with the beauty of His Holy Word; as
we begin to trust Him and apply Truth
to our lives, positive results occur.
Are we gambling, rashly casting lots

for ungodly outcomes to succeed, based
on Worldly methodologies? Can we learn
to be patient and rightly divine God’s
Word? What will it take us to remain,
in His sight… pure, holy and chaste?

Rom 15:13; 1 Tim 1:1b; Psa 3:2-6; 1 Pet 1:3-6

Poem: Trencherman
Eating and drinking, to excess
is an insalubrious proposition;
our gluttony greatly epitomizes
the selfishness that consumes us

when we’re blinded… by our lust.
Our poor behavior demonstrates
the foolishness of our flesh; if
we’re failing to ultimately trust

Him, then we’ll sow the seeds of
destruction and reap the ungodly
results, which may include death.
Despite our mistakes, His Love

covers us, as He patiently waits
for us to respond with the prayers
of a repentant heart; therefore,
let’s resume a way that’s straight

and narrow- the path towards Christ!
Inspired by:
Luke 12:20; Gal 6:8; Matt 7:13-14

Poem: Repentant State
With a proper attitude of humility,
we can die to ourselves daily, as
Christ leads us on our path of Faith.
In a repentant state, we will see

that it becomes much easier to love
others- as we should! Our actions,
before men, allow His Light to shine
through us; His Word countermoves

against enemy attacks, when we speak
His Truth over Life’s circumstances.
We can overcome, knowing that Christ
gives us strength, when we’re weak.

Matt 16:24–25; Mark 8:34–35; Rom 6-8;

Poem: Derailed Victories
Not heeding the real Truth of Christ,
will lead us into derailed victories;
in addition, we’ve been challenged to
question and make spiritual inquiries

regarding the legitimacy of His Word.
We need to be diligent in our studies
of the Scriptures, showing ourselves
approved of Him and not lazy nobodies,

who remain ignorant of His principles.
After all, it’s The Spirit’s pleasure
to lead us into everlasting Truth; our
inclination is to have that treasure…

of Christ within our hearts each day
and to enjoy the presence of His sway!

2 Cor 2:14; Judg 18:5-6; John 16:13-15;

Poem: Punishment and Pain
Isn’t it time, that we stop crying,
for deliverance from circumstance’s
punishment, when we really should
be begging to be freed from our sin?
His Word teaches us that escaping
.
the results of ‘Sowing and Reaping’
is not feasible; our given ability
to reason, isn’t diminished when…
we have the Hope of Christ within.
Instead, we ought to be willing
.
to end production of needless pain
towards our God; anxiety and fears
prevents us from pushing forward in
victory, although we’re working and
striving towards… a worthwhile gain.
Inspired by:
Heb 12:1; 1 Cor 9:24  and

We cry too often to be delivered from the
punishment, instead of the sin that lies
behind it.  We are anxious to escape from
the things that cause us pain rather than
from the things that cause God pain.

Poem: Evangelize
I’d rather live for Christ
and not burn in Hell; yet, I
won’t apologize for sharing
a Faith of… an eternal Life.

Promoting The Kingdom of God
is an interesting challenge;
His wisdom transcends that of
mortal men, while using flawed

souls like me. I have chosen
to evangelize with His sacred
tenets of Truth; I praise Him,
knowing that I serve a risen

Savior, Lord and King of Kings;
through my poetry, I will sing
of His greatness, mercy, Love
and enduring peace… He brings.

Though we’re forgiven sinners,
saved by His Grace, we should…
accept the sacred precept that
we’ve been made a new creation
and not spiritual beginners,

who are wallowing in the past.
Are we remaining sin conscious
and not focused on glorifying
Christ The Son and His Father?
In God’s image, we’ve been cast

to shine brighter… than stars,
with Christ’s essence emanating
from our Life and Love for Him!
Can we repent at a deeper level
and recognize that we’re jars

of human clay, who are broken
for His plan and purpose? He
strengthens, sustains and leads
us; therefore, let’s rise up;
into our hearts, He has spoken!

2 Cor 5:17; 1 John 4:17; John 10:26;

Poem: Quiet Heart
Isn’t peace indicative…
of a Godly, quiet heart?
How else can one explain

the calm that’s realized
during personal storms?
Does His Presence remain

with us, in these times
of temporary crisis? Do
souls remain untroubled?

Can our spirits continue
unafraid, allowing us to
go forward with redoubled

efforts, to reach others
with the Gospel, as part
of… Heaven’s campaign?

John 14:27; Num 6:24-26

For us, Faith is applying
His Truth and trusting in
Christ. So trust Him and
Faith grows with His Truth.

Knowing His Word, can show
us… what can occur. Without
Christ, nothing can carry
us through… to Salvation.

Can anything stop us? Will
Man stop on his own? Why do
folks worry on a daily basis?
Can or should individuals

do what is right continually?
Milking our situation for pity
is a sad way to push forward.
Will Christ light our way, if

Faith is always lacking? Why
should God assist us? Christ
is motivating us to go towards
Him; without spiritual aims,

nothing significant may occur.

Poem: Tears Into Joy
We’ve been freed from the captivity
of our sinful, blackened hearts;
The Lord has changed our tears into
joy and thankfulness; can’t we see

that we should be rejoicing everyday?
Yahweh reigns supremely over Zion
and our humbled bosoms; He’s provided
His Word; with The Spirit, His sway

encompasses our own with utmost peace.
Within our souls, His seeds of Truth
have been planted; His Presence waters
our existence; His purpose is released

as we go forward… progressing in Faith!

People are funny creatures, who seem  
unsure about the poetry, that I compose;
their lack of understanding implies that
my poems are nothing, but a series of…
spiritual abstractions. Unable to gleam

the enduring Truth of Yahweh, with eyes
of Faith, they ignorantly dismiss claims
of what God has done in Love… for them!
Without Christians demonstrating how to
live properly, their spirits won’t rise

up and see the need for a relationship
with Christ; if we’re not enjoying some
personal victories ourselves, then our
effectiveness is… obviously diminished.
We should be content, bound in fellowship

with Christ and energetically living out
our Faith! Moral regulations don’t draw
people to God; however, His joy within
us does; let our Faith be strong, vibrant
and visible, whereby people shed doubts…

of Who, God is and why He’s worthy of praise.

Eze 12:2
