Dear God… I’ve searched

Inside this dark and lonely place, I’ve searched for love, and peace, and grace. I’ve chased it here; watched life go by; Swallowing every stupid lie… The enemy dropped in front of me. I thought I knew but couldn’t see… That I’d been duped and made a fool, While trailing what I thought was “cool.”…

Lookin’ For Love

I’m lookin’ high. I’m searchin’ low. I’m lookin’ for that special glow! You know the one–it makes you feel, Like you could fly, like this is really… Where it’s at! The REAL thing! That gives life spark, and soul that zing! It’s love! I gotta’ get me some. I’ll know it when it finally comes.…

Doin’ Fine!

Hey I’m okay–I’m doin’ fine! That is my story and my line. I don’t need you, when I’ve got me! I’m doin’ great, as you can see! I learned it young. It’s all I know. I’m all I’ve got! Life ain’t no rainbow. But in the dark, with none around; The tears they flow–without a…

Sail Away

When blackness gathers like the night; And skies are filled with jagged light; When thunder crashes; peals of doom. And stormy wind’s like nightmare’s broom… Sweep down across your world of right, And brush away what’s best and bright. And boat’s adrift; sails tossed and blown; In churning seas of boiling foam. Now compass gone–now…

The father’s black eyes skewered his son, who was ‘lost,’ as C.S. Lewis put it ‘in the invincible ignorance of…

“Answers From A Cross” (New Song #11)

In all this darkness there is a light, A song from God, sung in the “night.” “Where is God!” some men demand. “Where was His, mighty, omnipotent hand?”   Devastation from stormy blast… Stricken faces—still aghast. “Where is God…” their whispered plea. “Doesn’t He care? Doesn’t He see?” ~~~ “How could He care—and look away?”…

Seasons

~~~ Father—Creation that you’ve made! Spring’s sweet buds, and Summer’s glade; Pumpkin’s orange in Fall’s bright pallet, Forest’s sleep ‘neath Winter’s mallet… ~~~ Your seasons teach me lessons stern; Lessons that, I needs, must learn; That all year ’round — these changes show, I must change if I’m to grow! ~~~ Why do I fight it? Fists clenched tight……
