MY GRANDFATHER WAS A GREAT MAN






On the first of October 1967 a great man died
I'd never known how cruel that death could be
To snatch away someone that I had loved so much

I was just 19 years old when death dealt it's blow
Taking this great man from us in the dark of night
He had played a major role in who I would become

He was always teaching me things that he did well
He'd taught me to work with tools and build things
He spent hours teaching me to play chess as a child

On that first occasion that I had him in checkmate
I had always wondered if he let me win

BALD ( Couplets)
~Bald~
(Couplets)

Some women reject me because I don't have any ´hair
When they see me they just hide under a chair
They just do anything to avoid me
All because I'm bald ´and that's all they care to see
They don't understand that I'm just a man any day
Women and girls just take a look and run away
And some come and hit my head
and they leave me sore and red!

Because Faron Lee Does Sharin Honorably´
Sweet Lips Haven't Kissed Me in 3 and a half years even with the endless tears
no lips of His on mine that's why they're cracked and dry!
We're BOTH from the old school faithful 4ever The Golden Love Rule!
And here we won't get to share the golden years
But in dreams we travel the golden road with no fears!
How Faron Lee's Celebrated Every Second Just Because
The Dream Came True That Is/Was!
It's just too bad I had to wake
After my home fell on me for pity's sake!
I wasn't even left with magical ruby slippers
And here I thought Hope's Hands were better tippers!More »

THE SPACESHIP ( Free Verse)




~The Spaceship~
(Free Verse

The other day when I was in the woods
Walking all alone by myself
I saw what looked like an alien spaceship
Just landing there in front of me
Two very ugly and mean looking little gray men
Just came out and started shouting things at me
And that's when I also noticed that
they had nothing on no clothes at all
I just run as fast as my two legs could
Because I knew my life was almost dust
When they shot lots of scary noisy rays at me
Barely made it to my car on time
And now that I look back I kn

A Prayer for a Heart

Hear O Lord as I cry,
And have pity on me;
Anxiety I sigh,
For why I cannot see.

Answer me as I said,
Please O Lord, seek my face;
For in my heart instead,
I am seeking Your grace.

O Lord, I seek Your face,
Hide not Your face from me;
I look for Your embrace,
And insight for to see.

Do not turn me away,
For You have been my aids;
As I trust and obey,
So I am not afraid.

Do not abandon me,
For You are my Savior;
Mold me and hear my plea,
Look on me with favor.

Though if my mom and dad,
Abandon me when yo

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SHANNON














Happy Birthday To My Shannon

Auntie was there to greet you
On your arrival to this earth.
And I’m compelled to tell you
I have cherished you from birth.

A red-faced speck of sunshine
Beneath a blonde hairdo…
Yes, you came with the dimples
And those dapper eyes of blue.

I showered you with gifts galore…
So happy that you came.
Yes, it was at my suggestion
That your mother chose your name.

We let your dad have middle choice…
