Renewed Complaint

My days are a fleeting runner,
They flee away and seem no good;
Like an illegal foreigner,
Not entering the way he should.

They pass away like skiffs of reed,
An eagle swooping on a prey;
A got*away that does succeed,
To elude police on that day.

I have forgotten my complaint,
And be removing my sad face;
To be of good cheer as a saint,
From the heaviness of disgrace.

I am afraid of suffering,
That causes all of my sorrow;
Making my thoughts bewildering,
To have a better tomorrow.

I feel as though God may condemn,
That my labor may be in vain;
Being surrounded by mayhem,
Causing all violence and pain.

I wash myself with fallen snow,
The cleansing of my hands with lye;
Yet into the pit, I must go,
But not abhor God asking why.

He is not a man as I am,
Facing Him in judgment to speak;
For the Lord is true not a sham,
It is the Almighty I seek.

There’s no arbiter in between,
Who might proceed to lay His hand;
There is no jury to be seen,
Only His justice where I stand.

Goodbye Mr. Moon

They took the measurement daily
Precisely on the stroke of noon
By bouncing a laser beam
Off the surface of the moon.
The results were recorded
With great precision and care
Not just yet any reason for
Anxiety, worry or despair.
On the time scale of a human
Still Many eons and eons away,
But on the Galactic time scale
Not much further than a day,
The moon would escape from
The Earth´s weak gravity pull
And on that fateful day the Earth
Would feel the effects in full.
The delicate equilibrium
Destroyed as it moved on
And green inhabitable Earth
Probably be irrevocably gone.
Mankind´s vanity of being special
Gone as the species died away
But on a galactic time scale
They´d existed less than half a day.
The planet would still serenely orbit
A world now ostensibly asleep
But who know what may be stirring
In the now static oceans´ deeps.



The Poets calling

On the streets of an eastern capital people stopped and asked me,
´How do poets soar so high in the sky?´
I said it is now how. It is why. Why above they fly.
Are you intimately injured with pains and grief,
questioning your own beliefs, gritting your teeth?
Are you bosom close with wet and dry cheeks and
tasting your tears in your mouth?
Can you tell whether you are crying or laughing,
because there are times I don´t.
Their eyes looked at me in silence.
Have you sailed on the sea of tears watching all solid hope disappear.
Abandoned in the mists of isolation,
for salvation´s shore, have you prayed and peered.
Any shred of hope a commodity dear, losing it all in fear.
All around you, sea above and below desert,
where one false step and you could be dessert.
Every grain of salt in the wind sifting your soul without effort.
Despair a rising Beaufort.
Their feet shifted weight but that gave them no comfort.
The Saharan dust overhead in a wide grey spread.
The Sun seized the last few inches of shade,
unsheathing 32 degrees Celsius of exposed blade.
Is pain your constant companion, sometimes friend?
Do you allow pain to instruct you and sometimes make amends,
and did you experience missing love during the covid years!
A heart breaking weight too heavy to let go or bear.
Days in which missing love lost its way and, afterwards,
when missing love was found and, before love was damaged and,
after it was unsound.
In the windows of their souls I saw springs abound.
Maybe all who sailed in them were outward bound.
Maybe with all the tears linking
they would deep sea to deep blue sea sync and,
from earthly anchors delink.
One soul cried out, you poets walk on the brink.
I said there is only a knife edge between here and there,
the distance a blink faster than the eye can think,
creative genius and insane babbling,
the veil just a vapor, a misty bubbling.
We poets feel the pathway only as we step out,
weaving between desert and rivers, sea and land,
snow and summer, mountains and plains, cosmos and Earth,
life, death and the undead, spirit, soul and body,
walking through the fire that is life and living it.
Poets write with merit to right the wrongs and inspire,
no matter how deep the dive, through all the strife of living.
Poets walk and write the human experience in a spirit of joie de vivre,
on a sea of tears foaming waves of constant grief.
One brave voice uttered, the poet´s calling is beyond belief.
I sighed inwardly ending my inner repertoire. What a relief.
At last, was this soul a spark in the dark
who would one day make a mark and
soar high in the sky to the cosmic ark,
there to embark, a shining light aglow,
orbiting in a rainbow arc.




LIKE JESUS CHRIST NO ONE ( The Monotetra Style )

Have A Very Lovely Day!


~Like Jesus Christ No One ~
( Monotetra )



This self is devoted to You,
And in Your Love drown all my blues,
Won't let depression, hurt me to,
Won't sing the blues. Won't sing the blues.


Christ, always helps me all way through,
With Him, all my Hopes are renew,
I'm so glad, that His Love pursue,
I Love Him too. I Love Him too.


Sometimes when don't know what to do,
He is the One, who helps me through,
To Him, always, in all go to,
His Love is True. His Love is True.

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.

3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good.

4. Traitors, heady, high*minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.

A salvation prayer, known by many Christians as a 'Sinners Prayer,' is a prayer one would say to repent from sin, ask God for forgiveness, confess belief in Jesus Christ, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Saying a salvation prayer is the first step in your personal relationship with God.
If you believe the Bible offers truth about the way of salvation, but you have not taken the step to become a Christian, it's as simple as praying this prayer. You can pray by yourself, using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and he will save you. If you feel lost and don´t know what to pray, here´s a salvation prayer that you can follow:

Dear Lord,
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don´t please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry, and I repent. I ask You to forgive me.
I believe that You died on the cross for me to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to You now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to You. From this day forward, help me to live every day for You and in a way that pleases You.
I love you, Lord, and I thank You that I will spend all eternity with You.

If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations!:))

You have received Christ as your Savior and have made the best decision you will ever make´one that will change your life forever!

~Author's Notes:



* Thought Of The Day *


* 1 John 2:15*17*

John warns us not to love the world or the things in it. But what is the world? The apostle isn't talking about the material realm, so there's no need to deprive ourselves of everything we enjoy in life. Rather, he is reminding us that every good desire can be perverted by sinful longings and pride.

The nature of the world system is seen in the behaviors, attitudes, and ambitions of our culture:

Immorality. Our society seeks to gratify lust in ways that God has forbidden. Immorality has even entered our homes through the internet and television.

Greed. The culture is driven by a desire for wealth, material possessions, fame, and power´and some people lie, cheat, steal, or kill to get what they want.

Pride. People are lovers of self and want to be seen as better than others. It's common today to portray oneself falsely on social media in order to be admired.

Despite the sinful condition of our culture, we shouldn't be discouraged. God is greater than the world's power to entice, and His purposes aren't thwarted by sin. He is able to guide us through the darkness as we trust and follow Him.

By Dr. Charles Stanley.

What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later.

´ Romans 8:18 (TLB)*

Father, help me to go beyond the afflictions and tribulations of our age, and to look toward the inheritance reserved for us in heaven.

By Evangelist Dr. Billy Graham


*Reflect & Pray *

There's no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to
do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

*1 John 4: 18

When do you find yourself feeling pressured to believe fear is greater than love? How might your relationships with others change if you believed you don´t need to be afraid?

Loving God, thank You for Your Love. Help us to trust in and follow Your Light and Love even when the way gets dark.


~Prayer Of The Day*

*Lord Jesus, as You sat looking over Jerusalem, You wept.
Give me the same compassion for those who have not accepted Your remedy and been BORN AGAIN.

~Today's Reflection~


* Bless is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
*Jeremiah 17:7


"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

* Abraham Lincoln *

"Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love."

*Francis of Assisi*

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside,
dreams, who looks inside, awakes." *

* Carl Jung, Letters *





Stuck in a nightmare I created.

I just want it to be over for real.
Everything reminds me of you.
I've never wished for a case of amnesia so bad.
Forward feels like death.
Backwards is impossible.
I live in the pits of darkness.
Still falling apart, I am bones.
With no pieces to pick up and nothing left.
I left my everything.
I left my love and my life.
As I sit, empty.
Nothing on earth fills this void.
Just wait until I meet my demise.
It'll be the next time I smile.
I'll no longer be here without you.
I pray it comes soon.
But.as my luck would have it.
I'll tell my grandkids this story in hopes that they don't make the selfish decisions I've made.
I hope someone takes me out of this misery soon.





Look at this innocent baby lying there
So happily content and without a care,
This baby holds our future right in his hand
With honour and integrity he must stand.

Whatever he needs his parents will provide
For no matter what they will be by his side,
They will protect him for as long as they can
`Til the day he becomes a fully grown man.

All through his life on them he can depend
They will be his parent and also his friend,
They will teach him well of this you can be sure
To face in life whatever he has to endure.
