Scared alone



Scared alone


A heart cries out across time. Please wait

For me. Please be there to meet me. Don't

Let me be on my own. I should have loved

You more, done more for you, but there

Wasn't time you had to go and I had to stay

And now every night your pillow my only

Comfort



Why didn't I see? Why didn't I love you more

When I had you here with me? I don't know

What the answer is I just wish there'd been

Some sign to say you we

Planting Soya Bean

The trees scream in pain as they

are hacked and chopped and burned

in a frenzy of controlled destruction

more efficiently as lessons are learned.

And they plough the bare earth to

plant crops of soya for cattle feed,

to provide excess food

that the rich west doesn't even need,



which they house and store until

prices are again forced high

while in the poorer parts

people wither and starve and die:

but it's all done for profit to

keep a smile held in place,

HOPE AND FAITH

LONELINESS, WE MEET AGAIN,
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE STAYING?

EMPTINESS, YOU TOO I SEE,
MAKE ANOTHER VISIT..
AND BROUGHT YOUR FRIEND DESPAIR.

DREAD YOU TOO,
NOT AGAIN..
BRING WITH YOU YOUR PAIN.

IF YOU DON'T MIND,
I TO BROUGHT FRIENDS..
THEIR NAMES ARE HOPE AND FAITH.

HOPE TO VANQUISH EMPTY..
LONELINESS...
FAITH THE DREAD DESPAIR.

The Measure of Love

I am allowed to do anything,
But not everything is good;
Though the pleasure that it may bring,
Not as what God says that I should.

I am allowed to do anything,
But will not let it take control;
Even though bad habits will cling,
I will not let them in my soul.

My stomach satisfied by food,
But God will satisfy my heart;
Giving me the right attitude,
Awake to a new day to start.

But the body is not for sin,
Since your body is for the Lord;
Sexual urges should not win,
And at all cost should be ignored.

For your body is par

Signs of Summer



Signs of Summer


Bright spring sunshine met me this morning

The sun itself still too far away for true holiday

Heat but with a southerly wind blowing up from

Spain I felt no hesitation in bookmarking today

As an early indicator of a hot summer to come



Girls in bright sleeveless dresses revelled in the

Glorious warm air basking in this unexpected

Blow your hair, blush your cheeks prelude to

Summer. While the chaps doff their jackets to

Get about the seriou
