conceal me in halo hue
like an angel of the sand
watching o'er Noel's land.
And when the flutes start to play
among the cups of molded clay,
let me dance for all to see
the beauty of His majesty -
Child so young, yet oh so bold
reminiscing tales of old,
with humble heart deep within
her starry eyes and gleaming skin.
Let the sweet rebirth begin,
while the world is free of sin.

Sickness is normal
Joy and happiness a burden
Ordeal of becoming old
Life became a misery
Through the pain and suffering I became closer to God
My thirst for His knowledge grows
My thoughts revolve around God and me
I fear not because God is with me
Only God, my constant companion, understands my plight
Only God comforts me with love,
knowledge and understanding
Only God, through Jesus’ blood sacrifice,
can free my soul and give me eternal peace
I praise God for all the blessings He has given me
Thank You GOD for the love You have given me

completely focused, seeking
sharing muscle and balance

I died today.
I was the dog you took to the shelter.
They no longer had room,
And I drew the unlucky number.
I'm in a black plastic bag now.
Somewhere in a landfill.
Maybe another puppy,
Will use my barely used leash.
My dirty collar was to small,
So it was taken off,
Before I went to the great beyond.
Would I still be home,
If I didn't chew your shoe?
I'm sorry mom and dad,
I didn't know what it was.
It was laying on the floor,
I thought it was a toy.
You didn't give me puppy toys.
If I was housebroken,
Would I still be home?
You only rubbed my nose in it,
Making me ashamed of even having to go.
If I didn't have fleas,
Would I still be home?
You left me in the yard for days,
Suffering with these fleas.
Would I be home if I didn't?
I was scared, lonely.
I just wanted you to know I was here,
Waiting for you to love me.
All you did was hit me,
You couldn't stand that I wasn't trained.
I had to die today.

To become grounded
And pull apart my facade
To bring myself peace.
To become grounded,
I envelope my soul
To bring myself peace
In order to remind myself who I am.
I envelope my soul
and pull apart my facade.
In order to remind myself who I am
Sometimes I need to kick off my shoes.

Deep within your bones
Deep within the greater thoughts in your mind
Deep into space
Into the depths of things you'll never know
Deep into the whispers of gods
Into aching body's that know no rest
Within others around you
Within the dust of stars
That exploded long ago
Within the heart
Within the blood
Within who you are and who you wish to be
You look at the sky
You feel something flutter from inside
You breath deeply
You begin to realise
It's to late
You crack your bones

Don't got no room
You left me scramblin'
Only think about you
My heart is jumpin'
Right out of my chest
I didn't see it comin'
Now you're just like the rest
Don't come down
Can't come out
Stuck here with you
My brain switched off
Don't like the thought
Of seein' him with you
Kill me now
Help me drown
Your dream will come true
When I die
I'll float through the sky
Singin' our favorite tunes

Breathing a moment of eternity in one secondTime is an entity that surpasses the seconds that leaveBreathing a moment of eternity in one second8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
listening to the sounds made by the ground
watching a leaf spinning and fall to its destiny
it seems clear to me that the consecution of events
that clock forward
always towards another reality
the true essence of time
As I move
through the progression of my days
the memories sway
and the sunlight reflects its rays
in such a way
that I feel every moment
and is concluded
by the precession of seconds
in communications of truth
Like destiny pre-cured
as each moment meets its purpose
inherit to the fires of man
and of love.
In my imaginary reality,
time stand still just for me.
I see the leaf floating
and gloating of its windswept
the end place
there is nowhere
for the go to know
I cannot comment for what has happened
or the circumstances that lead to it
but for the rhyme and rhythm
I can harp away and but guess.

A play, written by God
That will end when the curtains of life
You have your actors
Your sets, your props
You have the audience
The ones who watch your every move
And wait for you to mess up
They laugh when things go wrong
But cry when things get rough
So you gotta love them
A little bit
The play will last a very long time
And not all the audience stays to watch the show
Till the very end
Some will walk out on you
And leave you alone
But others will be beside you
Let you know that they're there
I know it's hard
To remember your lines
To remember what you're supposed to do
But I'll bet if you ask
One of your fellow actors
They'll show you how to let the light shine through
This play wasn't written by Shakespeare
Nor where the songs composed by Beethoven
The play was written by God
The songs where composed by angels
Sometimes you get sick of acting
And you decide to end it all
To come out of character
To make that dangerous call
But you'll see if you just st

[This Island Earth] was not a regretful habitat by any means.
It did to us
Whatever it did to us--
Fed us, clothed us, nurtured us, and bathed our hearts in gems and salt water;
Used us, abused us, mused us to manipulation and drowned our hearts in contamination...
Whether good, whether bad, whether any subjective term you would like to use...
There was beauty and there was horror.
But we part From [this Island Earth],

Orion's Tide came with an uncomfortable background sound,
That sound you would expect if you were an astronaut being catapulted into space--
Air shaking about to shatter the windows of your ears though the volume was not high at all and yes that is confusing and hard to describe.
Whatever we find out there--
