Endure it Does

Leave a comment

Through fires raging
War drums banging
Our Love
Endure it does

Even when waters rise
When there’s stormy skies
Our Love
Endure it does

Ever climbing hills
It cannot be killed
Our Love
Endure it does

Though it has enemies
Who sabotage like thieves
Our Love
Endure it does

When we want to quit
We can’t live without it
Our Love
Endure it does

Worth more than gold
More than precious stone
Our Love
Endure it does

Like towering trees
Dancing in the breeze
Our Love
Endure it does

It’s strong as rock
Crumble it will not
Our Love
Endure it does

Even over time
It improves like wine
Our Love
Endure it does

Our love has no end
Ever will it mend
Our Love
Endure it does

TBT: The Cycle

2 Comments

First Poem I ever wrote. Thought of it while working on the farm.

It is the superior man that falls the hardest,
At having lost his blood boils with jealousy and rage,
If his superiority discontinues he himself discontinues.
Life in its darkest form,
He falls at the mercy of Life from the clouds so high,
Onto the barren, jagged, untamed rocks of the Earth.
They have seen much of time, life,
They await its end,
Exposed themselves by time, life, they take life away.
Then another pawn takes his place in the majestic clouds.
To continue the rising and falling of power,
The Cycle.

Old Blue Jeans

Somehow when days are filled with stress

I find that it often helps to dress

In something comfortable to wear

Like my oldest most worn out pair

Of frayed and faded blue jeans

They’re torn and pulled at the seams

But still when I pull them on my legs

The pressure melts from the days

Of deadlines, memos, expectations

Supervisors condemnations

Perhaps it’s simply how they fit

Whether I clean the house or sit

Watching shows that entertain me

Picking at the hole around my knee

Sipping black coffee hot and steamy

Imagining places more dreamy

Than the drudgery of modern life

Seems like little more than strife

Yet my old blue jeans remind me still

That life can be adventure, a thrill

So I’ll wear them, and wear them again

Because the real journey has yet to begin

Tap, Tap, Tap

Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Have no more time to spend

With expanding your mind
Or hunting treasures to find
Improving your body
Or strengthening your family

Nothing but Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Only left with your best friend

Eyes fixed downward
Bow to your lord
Bent over like peasants
You lowly subjects

And just Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Only this till the end

Slaves to the device in your hand
I beg your to break away if you can
Rejoin a world of relationships
Love people and forge friendships

No more Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
You can heal, you can mend

Be better than a tapping drone
Feeling so connected but really, alone
Stop allowing the drain of your soul
Let go and make living your goal

TBT: All You Need is Love

Leave a comment

another poem from my youth, cheesy but cute, and yes, I was a huge Beatles fan

To not have to worry about money or wealth,
To never have problems with sickness or health,
If food was free, and there was plenty for me,
If the world was at peace, and there was oil in the East,
It would be nice.
But everything is literally uncontrollable.
It is a nice dream, and an immense goal.
It’s not something that will change overnight.
Hopefully someday we can live in an utopia,
But until then we must survive,
And keep our hopes alive.
So to walk down the long and winding road,
All you need is love.
Everything else is lace on the tapestry of life.

My Demons

Dr-Strange-Quotation

This Dr. Strange quote inspired this poem. Enjoy. 

Smile on my face and words, joking
Hide the battle ever raging
Between myself and again, myself
The never ending war within oneself

Claws ever scratching at my soul
Digging deeper for total control
Hot words hissed into my ears
Convincing me of my greatest fears

My demons demanding my attention
Gathered over years of frustration
Failures, abuse, mistakes and sins
Opened the door to demons, let them in

They are part of me now ever thirsty
To drink my blood to them so tasty
Seeking my depravity, demise, ruin
Steal my confidence and reputation

Sadly, the demons have won sometimes
Been dark clouds stealing the sunshine
Wrapped my heart in their malice and deceit
Till I cried in pain, broken, beat

No more do I battle them as before
They will never leave, here evermore
Though I have learned to live above them
They may remain, but they no longer win

I am glad for them in the end
They showed me a life very dim
Also that I have the power to choose
When they invite failure, I can refuse

My demons made me stronger in strife
Allow me to live a peaceful life
Never rid of the demons I’ve collected
Only I’ve their taunts rejected

Birthday Poem for Matt

Leave a comment

One of my students has been asking for a birthday poem all year. His birthday was this month so this is what I wrote him. 

Happy birthday!

You’re a man now

Go out in the world

And make it somehow
Some days will be tough

Others wonderful

Sometimes life’s exciting 

But other times it’s dull
Just be yourself and strive

To always grow and learn

Stay steady on the road of life

Navigate the twists and turns
Don’t ever be afraid to fail

Nor of being heartbroken

Hurts, hurdles and losses

Are the way we keep growing 
Be true to yourself and brace

Carry on no matter what happens

Be strong through storms

And you’ll find love, success and happiness
