Title: *Fragments of Happy Biography





Title: *Fragments of Happy Biography *


Yesterday is not
Mine to uncover,
So I let it pass by 
Like a forgiven past lover.



Tomorrow is mine still,
To win or to lose; 
 have the power
And freedom
To choose.



I run my race to 
Cross the finish line.
I keep my face
Toward the sunshine;
And I will see,
Not a shadow,
Only a brilliant glow.



If the negativity
Appears to destroy,
I find a place inside,
Where there's joy.



Because the joy will
Burn out the pain,
Soon I am laughing
In the rain again.



I live life to the fullest,
Always allowing the greatest.
Focusing on the positive, 
Rendering my heart to give.



In speaking the
Truth with love,
Will we  grow into Christ;
Only the highest
Shall suffice.



To be carnally minded
Means death; to be spiritually
Minded brings life and peace.
By such does our happiness,
And prosperity increase.

Title: *Autumn Song


Title: *Autumn Song*

A rapid sun
With good clean fun
Brays imperiously 
Reflecting mysteriously
In honeyed ignorance

At a whirlwind romance
A credit to mankind,
Clearly and yet undefined
Softly and yet with passion. 
In flamboyant fashion
Autumn sleeps 
Whilst little Bo peeps
Into the morning. 

Midnight grows  
An early warning.
The autumn moon

From dawn till noon
Paints sky screens 
Behind the scenes
Spreading opulently
Past the stars that
Billow and blow

A brilliant glow
A golden sunrise
Across the bluest skies.

Title: *Home Truths


Title: *Home Truths* 

Perform every act
As though it
Were your last
Live in the present
Not in the past.

Give peace 
A chance
A liberal 
Point of view
And may all 
Creation dance 
The joy that

Lives in you.

Title: *Angel of Flexibility


Title: Angel of Flexibility

Dear God
Thank you for granting me
An angel of flexibility
Giving me the ability
To course correct 
Cause and effect
A guiding light,
Willing to see
The whole
Without losing
Sight of the goal.

The angel of flexibility
Helps me let go 
Of narrow-mindedness,

Taking into account
Important evidence 
Whilst remaining open
To the flow -
As easy come, easy go
Humble like a servant
Yet remaining current

With all newest information
To bless each given situation.

Title: *Friendship


Title: *Friendship*

Life brings with it
Many surprises
When I open my heart
To its many disguises.

The surest way
To have friends
Is to be one,
Being a trusted mate
To others when
They need one
Is true practise of the
Commandment of God’s Son

My heart not my ego
Is where real friends
Must abide
So I will take time
To encourage,
Share mine with others
Rather than hide.

Respecting kindness,
Acceptance, and Trust,
These ingredients
For genuine friendship
Are a must.

In being the friend
That I wish
To have most,
I will attract
To myself
Great friends
I can host.

I am not anxious,
For that nor will
I lose any sleep
But will Let Christ
Be the factor of
Which friends I
Can keep.

The bonds of true friendship
Will forever run deep

Title: *HARVEST TIME


Title: *Harvest Time*

Onward yearly harvest.
The first step might
Seem the hardest
Effort with rewards
Such as music
And its chords.
A predictable change
Choices to rearrange.
Reduction of strife
Lending meaning to life
New tasks for each season.
Peace is the reason
Broken spirits on the mend
Nothing to defend
Peace and happiness
Till the end.
