Say Goodbye Mr Wrong. Say Hello Mr Right (c)-2017
                Poetry  By Michael D Dowdy

I believe ,love's not supposed to feel like this
it should come naturally & painlessly
not rushed nor difficult for you heart to handle
it shouldnt hurt , it shoulnt make you cry
- day after day
-night after night
baby, we both know- that aint right!


Girl, you would be , so much better off , without him
pack up his  things, take back your keys
show him the door
say goodbye to mr wromg
say hello to mr right
say goodbye to mr wrong
say hello to mr right


if he cant or wont want  to try
- -to make you happy & safe
it's  time to rethink all of this over
how many times,will you cry, yourself to sleep
why do you cry, pretty. heartbroken lady
before you get rid of this selfish, egotistical creep?
tell me , why do you put up with all of this misery?
say goodbye mr wromg
say hello -mr right


Girl, you would be , so much better off , without him
pack up his  things, take back your keys
show him the door
say goodbye to mr wromg
say hello to mr right
say goodbye to me wrong
say helllo to mr right

That's What Faith Brings

That's What Faith Brings" (c)-2017
Poetry By Michael D. Dowdy

Everybody says, why do things have to be so **** bad
with all these drugs, wars and killings
that keeps going ,on and on
Everyone goes through dark times
full of doubts, tears and fears
what i am supposed to do?
when life gets too hard & difficult?
when you cry yourself to sleep
wondering out loud-where are the answers, i'm seeking
whenever, you tell yourself
how in the hell, can i go on
when thing go horribly wrong!
thats when, you'll hear my reassuring voice- inside your head
saying everything will turn out alright
that's what faith brings
that's what faith brings

Put in your trust in me
Hang on, never give up
ill get your through anything
Ill never leave you alone
to go through all these burdensome things
-Ill always be there
pray & call upon my name
get down on bended knee
no matter the time or day
ill give you strength
ill give you peace
ill make things better
that's what faith brings
that's what faith brings

please listen up carefully, i'm still here
Ill get you safety through anything,
like i have-so many times before
thats what faith brings
thats my solemn promise to you!
just look it up, in the holy book
that show s all the promises that i have made
just for you!
ill be your guiding light, ill be your warrior
ill take your all your fears, ill take all your tears
underneath my saving grace
I'm the answer to all your troubles
i'm the one, who died for you
thats how much , i have always loved you
I am your best friend
I'm your savior, i'm Jesus
you'll be forever be protected , ill heal your pain
you'll be at peace -underneath my wings
that's what faith brings
that's what faith brings

Put in your trust in me
Hang on, never give up
ill get your through anything
Ill never leave you alone
to go through all these burdensome things
-Ill always be there
pray & call upon my name
get down on bended knee
no matter the time or day
ill give you strength
ill give you peace
ill make things better
that's what faith brings
that's what faith brings

Victims Of Hate
Michael D Dowdy Mar 2017
"Victims Of Hate"(c)-2017
Poetry By Michael D. Dowdy

Their building their racist walls
Their passing discriminatory laws
to strip away liberties & dignity
for racial, religious & ****** minorities
their spewing bigoted slurs & abusing people
in the name of their God & Religion
just like ISIS, Al Queda & The Taliban
This isn't real Christianity
This isn't true religious faith
This Is Un-American (It's morally wrong!)

Their yelling profanity (as they casting out)
their self-righteous stones- of bigotry
Their nailing sinners to an zealot's tree
screaming out in glee
loser, heretic, deviate ,creep
jew, ****, queer , freak
as they begin to bleed
as their spirits are being burned
victims of hate
yearning for answers to their fate
in fighting for justice & equality
standing up for lady liberty

in this dark , cruel world
full of evil & dangerous places
victims of hate
clinging to faith & hanging on to hope
desperately searching for somewhere, to call home
a safe & compassionate place- to belong
searching for some understanding & love
victims of bigotry
looking for bridges of love
but only finding, ( more walls of exclusion & hate)

Their yelling profanity (as they casting out)
their self-righteous stones- of bigotry
Their nailing sinners to an zealot's tree
screaming out in glee
loser, heretic, deviate , creep
jew, ****, queer , freak
as they begin to bleed
as their spirits are being burned
victims of hate
yearning for answers to their fate
in fighting for justice & equality
standing up for lady liberty

Victims Of Hate
Don't give up
Don't give in
Don't Run & Hide
Always show your pride
Cling to your faith, It'll carry you through
-whenever things go wrong
Fight for what's fair, just & right!
Always remember-your a Child of God
Stay Proud, Stay Strong
God Bless & Protect
Victims of Hate

Their yelling profanity (as they casting out)
their self-righteous stones- of bigotry
Their nailing sinners to an zealot's tree
screaming out in glee
loser, heretic, deviate , creep
jew, ****, queer , freak
as they begin to bleed
as their spirits are being burned
victims of hate
yearning for answers to their fate
in fighting for justice & equality
standing up for lady liberty

Just The Way.You Are

"Just The Way.You Are" (c)-2017
Poetry By Michael D Dowdy


I love you , just the way you are
with all your faults & sins
I'm not sacred off  (by your rebellious attitude)
I'm not worried about  (your past  mistakes)
I'm not going anywwhere- (except into your waiting arms)
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are


Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are




I'm not perfect, and i know
yes, ive known it- neither are you
we have our emotional scars
we made plenty of mistakes
we have our fair share
-of sins & regrets
we have both  been-(torn to pieces)
by  family ,friends & lovers
i dont understand, why we even bothered
-to try to reach out to them
when they refuse to treat us, respectfully
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are



Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are



Ive seen the best of you
Ive seen the worst of you
you have seen (the best of me)
you have seen (the worst of me)
i love you baby
just the way, you are
and i know, you love me too
just the way, i am
just the way, i am



Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are
and i know, you love me
just the way, I am
just the way, I am


Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are
