The devil had came and took a hold of me , but GOD
Came and set me free.
There was temptations all around and that’s where I’d be found.
Hurting myself and so many others , not caring for sisters or brothers
I was cussin , gambling, womanizing too – this was the life that I knew.
My body was invaded by drugs and booze – this was a battle
I knew I would lose.
Falling to the ground – I couldn’t get up and with the sky above
Me and the ground below – that’s when I knew I had no place to go.
I looked up to the heavens and I started to pray
“ OH GOD take this away “
There are so many things that I have to do , to find peace and happiness too.
I felt arms pick me up and make me stand – yet when I turned and looked
There was no one’s helping hands.
I heard someone speaking to me : yet there was no one that I could see.
“ just follow the path that you now see and from the devil s grasp
You will be free “
I followed this path of sun and light and all of GOD S beauties are
In plain sight.

Today is international women’s day where we praise them
Not only for things they do and things they say but for
Seeing life in every way.
They are mothers, sisters , aunts , lovers and are confidants
And soul mates too , and treated right they’ll do anything for you.
They are sensitive but can be hard as nails and at the drop of a hat
They can send men to jail.
They are in every profession known to man and behind every
Successful man – there they stand.
When it comes to business they prevail cause they see every detail.
Their future is now here , and no more fears
Of rallying together to make life better.

Working as a school crossing guard I had a
Student ask me ; why of things of beauty do you write
When all people want to do is argue, fuss and fight !
People are not going to change , when everything
Around them stays the same !
People see others struggling and they don’t care
What they have they are not willing to share.
When all someone may need – is a little hope on which to feed.
A piece of bread , a smile , a hello is something that they don’t know.
Not everyone is the same that can receive success , wealth and fame !
You don’t know what the poor go through until it happens to you !
All this that was said I know this to be true – there is beauty and ugliness too.
Yet after each world known disaster comes a calm and peace soon after
People come together when ugliness raises it s head and stomp
On it until it’s dead.
This is the beauties of which I write – when GOD touches us
And gives us sight.

I will love you when you’re old and grey
I will love you night and day
I will love you through good times and bad
I will love you when you’re happy or sad
I will love you when your health fails
I will love you when I have to wipe your tail
I will love you cause GOD meant it to be
I will love you through eternity
Everything gets old and withers and dies
But He has our home up in his heavenly sky
Keep that breathtaking smile on your face
For we are going to a better place
There will be no sorrows , aches or pains
And where every one is the same
For joy and happiness will follow us
For in our GOD we put our trust.

The political gangster is the one who uses the political
Powers of their office to intimidate the others to do
What they say and do whatever they deem necessary to
eliminate all rivalry.
It matters not if innocent people get hurt in the process
As long as they can control others.
We now live in a political ground where the UNITED STATES
Has been turned around,
No longer are we free, for we live under political hypocrisy.
Politicians are misinterpreting the laws
and leading us into another civil war.
When we no longer speak and close our lips
we allow this Country to be ruled by Dictatorship.
What would our forefathers say – if they was to see how
This country is being run today ?
When has any politician in this country looked to another
Country to help them win an election, and in their mind
They are perfection.
It reminds me of the games we used to play “ follow the leader “
And “ Simon says “ – but this is” reality” and not the way life
We grew up from girls and boys and put away our children toys.
No longer can a guilty person be tried , because evidence and testimony
They will tend to hide.
This is my belief and you do not have to agree , but what the
future holds we will see.

writing letters still exists
Letter of love
After many years I picked up my pen to write
A letter to a long lost friend.
We grew up together she and I , together we
Laughed , we joked and at times we cried.
Then her and her family moved away
I searched for her night and day.
Like most teens in school we knew each other
By first name , as I searched – it seemed in vain.
When one of her friends I happened to see
And her address and name was given to me.
With tears in my eyes I started to write and my
Heart was filled with delight.
My feelings poured out on to the paper !
“ I fell in love with you from the start- you captured
My soul and my heart.
A happiness I never felt before until you walked into that door..
I don’t know if you feel the same way too , but my heart
Belongs to only you “
Two days later I received a reply
“ I’m sorry I never got to say good-bye “
My feelings for you are the same and maybe I’ll
Get to carry your name.
We’ll meet in college and start again for I love you
Much more than a friend .
The college years went by fast and we knew our love would last
Careers we both have now , and we took our wedding vows
Our love letters we put away for our children to read some day.

All the tears that I have shed , and all the blood that I have bled
Cannot compare to what lies ahead
My soul mate , the love of my life is going to a place in paradise.
She says the gates have opened wide for her “ to go inside “.
Family and friends have gathered around for she is heaven bound.
The pathway is lit up with lights so bright , and all the
Angels in plain sight.
“ Swing Low , Sweet Chariot “being sung by a choir
Burning in her heart like a fire .
Her eyes are glassy and she has a smile on her face
Telling me she’s going to a better place.
For me not to cry, not to shed a tear for in my
Heart she’ll always be there.
I held her in my arms till her last breath , and now
I must lay her to rest.
I know I’ll follow you thru heavens gate
So wait for me – I won’t be late.

As we get older we tend to search for what will complete us , such as love ,companionship
Friendship, , communication , a hug , a kind word .
The thing is that when we are young we do not think about getting old ,or getting ailments
That we never had before such as loss of strength , loss of memory ,loss of sight
Loss of hearing and so much more.
We feel infallible and nothing can hurt us , but we do get older and with age comes
Many things that we drag around like a chain .
We look at our parents and at times tend to ignore them and their complaints of pain.
There are more things going on now than ever before , with all the technology
We can go on a computer or cell phone and get information so much easier than ever before.
In doing and using this technology we can learn about a person and even destroy that
Person and their livelihood or shut down a company s system with the touch of a finger.
It seems that it is like the movies where robots become the masters of humanity .
Tell the people that are in your life that you love them before it is too late.
We will not be around when you need us or a listening ear or eyes to see your tears.
