Are You an Advocate?

 

Do you live the truth

And not the lies

A life of hope

By one who tries?

 

Do you speak His word

With joy and love

Followed close

By those above?

 

Do you live

To be the one

Who shows by living

The way it’s done?

 

Do you know

With all your heart

This way is right

To be a part?

 

An advocate

Is what you are

Be proud to be

That rising star.

 

Live His word

And walk His path

Then never fear

To feel His wrath.

Hello?

 

Hello! She said

Her smile intact

The world

A beautiful place.

No one answered

They turned away

Darkness

All around.

Hello! She said

A hopeful grin

Trying to stay

Positive.

A single child

Stopped and looked

Shy and tentative

He was.

Hello. She said

Her smile had dimmed

Wistful and

Subdued.

Hello? He asked

Unsure, afraid

Was anyone there

To hear.

Hello! She laughed

All was well

A single light

Broke forth.

Hello!! She shouted

The world to hear

A single voice

Did conquer!

Remembering?

 

ink sketch

I cannot remember

The things I have said,

The act of remembering

It feels me with dread!

 

I remember the past

As if I was there.

But what I’ve just eaten?

It’s really unfair!

People I’ve known,

For short or for long,

The names that they have

I’m afraid that they’re gone!

 

I want to remember,

I’m afraid to forget,

I feel I am losing,

Now that is a threat!

 

Time passes on

For thee and for me,

I’ll live in the moment

Until I am free!

Listen

 

Can you hear a moon beam

As it whispers on the wind?

Can you see the hand of God

Resting on your skin?

 

Do you feel the spirit

Warm around your heart?

Do you know for certain

You’ve made the perfect start?

 

Will you be the best

That you could ever be?

Will you pay attention

To things you cannot see?

 

Are you now forever

The person that is best?

Are you living fully

Gently with the rest?

 

What are you afraid of

That stops you being true?

What are you remembering

Of the One that made you, you?

 

Can you hear the words

Spoken from within?

Safe with Him forever

Will you now begin?

Honour

 

 

A friend made a comment

She made it to me

You’re silly you know

My advice here is free

 

With joyous abandon

You live life to the full

It is said from the heart

I tell you no bull

 

With laughter galore

And a chuckle or two

You look for the best

In all around you

 

Each day with a smile

You greet every dawn

With honour a suit

Each day you put on

 

Life is a journey

You share with the best

Our days may be numbered

So we’re on a quest

 

Be kind to each other

Is the quote for the day

And live every moment

As we all join the fray

Poo Soup    

 

I am sure I misheard

The words that you said

You asked if I’d rather

Consider you dead?

 

I know that’s not right

But it’s now in my head.

Such silly old me

You asked about bread!

 

There’s soup on the menu

I like that, I do

What’s on today?

You say that it’s poo?

 

Creamed, you continue

It’s special you see.

I know this is wrong

But, with a chaser of pee?

 

This restaurant is new

With a speciality palate

I am not quite there.

So the onion’s a shallot?

 

I long for the day

When food was a breeze

A coffee was simple

And sweets were a tease

 

Now latte’s are half-fat

And waste’s on the menu

I don’t understand

That food’s now a venue!

 

I’ll just drink my tea

And snack on a chip.

Maybe I’m asleep,

And this is a trip!

I Will Remember

 

Memories are fleeting

As time takes a beating

Soon lost to the world

They will be

The sights I have seen

The places I’ve been

Who will remember

Them now

This instant in time

Is where we will shine

The strength of our light

Is still strong

Remember or not

The things we have got

Our time here simply

Was brilliant

As millennium pass by

In the blink of an eye

I will remember

Until I am gone.

The ether up top

Is where we will stop

Together we become

As the wind

A Political Statement

 

 

A political statement

Needs to be heard

By people who matter

Not lines that are blurred

 

Trust is an issue

And what’s good for us all

Not perks for a few

And the rest to the wall

 

I want to feel safe

And valued as one

Not facing the barrel

Of an anger fuelled gun

 

Why is the question

So hard to discern ?

Speak from the heart

With a voice of concern

 

Lives are what matter

We all are as one

That is the day when

We will have won

 

You are important

And I am as well

That’s the first step

The hate we must quell

 

This fight must be forward

Our world is being slammed

No arguments between us

Politics be damned!

 

 

A Forest Life

 

 

 

A songbird sings

A haunting tale

Of love and loss

And hope.

 

A deer finds comfort

Amongst the trees

Its graceful body

At rest.

 

The squirrel

The hoarder

With nuts stacked high

Winter’s feast.

 

The mole digs deep

The ground so soft

It serves to hide

And sleep.

 

The wolves are here

The prey’s afraid

Cycle of life

Lives on.

 

Where do those

Who we call human

Have the right

To be?

Animal Crime?

 

Discriminately speaking

Said the possum from bed,

There’s a fly on the wall

And I think that’s he’s dead!

 

How can I sleep

Surrounded by crime?

Murder and mayhem

Time after time!

 

There’s much to be done

To save all our lives.

But first clean the wall

It’s giving me hives!

 

Doctor, oh Doctor

Have you got a cure?

Things are not right

Of this I am sure.

 

There’s a wolf at my door

And he wants to get in!

He wants me for dinner

His cooking’s a sin!

 

Now the rabbits are fine,

Not a hair out of place.

Which makes me suspicious

I think there’s a case.

 

Fraud and deceit

They play all the time.

I don’t trust the cuteness

I think it’s a crime.

 

How weary my soul,

With this evil about.

I’ll just go back to sleep,

And cover my snout!
