I NEVER



blog post photo


I Never 
took 
the steps to failure

I 
Never tried to do it

I 
Never reached success

I 
Never fail to do it

I 
Never won or lost

I
 Never learned the cost

I 
Never succeeded

For 
I Never went through it..

A THOUGHT! 

Three steps to success
Try, Failure, and do it !
One step to failure
Try not to do it.

Dedicated to 
All The Steps Awaiting


Each step is a goal 
Each end you will know
One will come to you 
Try 
and get through it
Start 
will help you do it
When 
you don't let failure 
Get in the way.

A Poeatreeman

Between 
Success and Failure
Are the
steps you take
Between 
Failure and You
Are the 
Tries you don't take
Between it all 
is everything 
you make.

TUITION



A DEGREE

IN STUPIDITY

COST TOO MUCH.

THE DIPLOMA

HOLDS NOTHING.

OH WELL

AT LEAST

I LEARNED

TO BE A FOOL.

POEATREEMAN


DUD !

NOW IF YOU

CAN GET SOME WISDOM

HOW MORE FOOLISH

CAN YOU BE ?

IT ONLY TAKES CENTS

LET ME COUNT MINE.

MY PIGGY BANK

IS EMPTY.

I prefer the Easter Bunny.
He brings you chocolate eggs.

Requote (Personal opinion of course) Cool

I hope you don’t mind; to good not to play with:
He that wrestles with us,
strengthens our nerves,
and sharpens our skill.

Our antagonist is our helper.”
~ Edmund Burke

To requote,

Thanks for your thoughts
I do not mind your play
your fencing went very well
I will have to sharpen my skills
that my blade my be as sharp
yet my words will only tell
how fencing will do me well
thanks for the lesson

I am on my toes now

Play all you want,
though be fair in your play,
I hope you learn whenever you play
Life’s not a game,

Yet it plays, with your will..
Take heart, it will play itself in the end.
You will win for Heaven is there.
If you choose to win.

The biggest play will be your life.
The curtain has risen,
The play is your to call, When it is over.

Who will be there, to tell you, if its good?.
I hope God and His Angels,
WILL applause your play.

Don’t want the critic. He may burn the play.
A Fires end is not your play .
Enthusiasms ,is ok.
Yet not to burn up your way.
Have fun with my words,
and enjoy the day.




FOOTPRINTS

And Know He is You
You Will Find Heaven
Is not Far From You

To See Today

THE SUPREME COURT
The Ten Commandments

He Only Opposes The Harm
That Will Come To My Life
I Oppose All Wrong
When I Do It Right.

TIP TOE

SPEAK YOUR MIND
Yet Mind what you say

It will let you Win
Remember your Thoughts

And Love will Win

That just came in

WAR IS NOT HELL
It is an Experience in Hell
Who the Hell would want to War?
The Fool who has nothing to do
I will Fool all of you
And come back a Hero
Now I have Eternity to Boost at Last
I Laid in my Coffin
With nothing to do
Oh Well! I have Eternity
To Come up with something New.

CROSSROAD
We Start with a Straight Road
And Only Turn
When We See a Bend
Right and Left
Are The Choices of The Road
That Will Take Us Beyond The End
We Turn at The Bend
When We Cross The Line
Right and Left is a Narrow Line
Taken When We Choose The Way
Heaven and Hell, are Different Lanes
Crossing Over, Will Change The Way.

GET SMART
If Smartness, is Measured By Man
It is The Dumbest I Have Seen
Wisdom Never Measures
It is Wise not to do
We Each Have a Gift
That Measures Us All
Finding It
We Will Be Wise, when we do
Sharing it,
Will be the Smartest of all

HIGHWAY
The BRIDGE to REALITY
is a DREAM Built on HOPE
CROSSING it
Will Take a LIFETIME of Hope

MY JOYFUL WILD RIVER

video



THE RIVER OF LIFE


The River of Life
begins
when we are born   


It streams
across Life
to take us
through it all


It has
its ebbs and tides
rises
with the storms


It flows to take us
to each
day's dawn


The course You set
will only
change with choice


The River takes us
to many
different points


How you affect
The River
will ripple
through it all


It is not
always smooth
nor does
it have
to be storming


The River
is the beginning
that flows
from the womb


It takes us
to eternity
to set
the course
we choose..


A THOUGHT!

There is
no end
when
The River
flows to God


There
is only
start
where
will I begin?


There
is one choice
where will it be?


Dedicated To Belinda

A Poeatreeman

One starts
when One
is on The River


One chance
to stop
from falling
to the falls


One's birth
will bring
me to it all


One's end
is only
just beginning


Eternity
is just ahead
no time to lose


Time
is not running
nor are you


You're faced
with what
you chose to do


No time
to think
of where I will go


I knew
before
I ended my journey.

A WALK WITH LOVE


I'll Walk down
This Road with you
.

To let it Take us
Where it may
.

Far Beyond
What we can See
.

Or even Think
It could Ever be
.

To Know you are
Here with me
.

Will make it
Much more my Love
.

To Share
All the Love and Pain
.

Will be the Path
I'll walk with you
..



To Feel each others
Smiles and Tears
.

Will be what
I'll share with love
.



For a Walk with you
Is a Walk with Love

A million miles,
I'll Walk with you
.

To Take us
To an endless Sea
.

Never ending
This Walk with you..

THE COLOR OF HEAVEN


The Color of Heaven
No eyes can Behold

The Color of Humanity
The Color of Gold

The Color of Treasures
The Races
That are Found


The Color of Hearts
The Love
That is abound


The Color of Peace
The Light
of all our wishes


The Color of Kindness
The Tears
That helped Hatred


The Color of the World
The Love
We did not Share


The Color of you
The Shade
That God drew


The Color of Light
The Hopes
We did not put in it


The Color of Heaven
The Earth
We live in now.


A THOUGHT!

One Colors their view
by Seeing only theirs


One Blinds their way
by not
Seeing through


One Clears the way
by opening
Their Heart to all


One serves Humanity
by loving it Today..


Dedicated to the children of i.c.a.n.

For they have seen their Hearts

The hope of mankind to see itself.

A Poeatreeman

Let my Heart be my Eyes
I will See
The Color of Heaven


Let Love Reach to God
my Heart
Will Touch the Heaven.

A STAIRWAY TO GOD


I will Try
To use my Words
To Build
A Stairway To God.

Then
I Can Take a  Step
Each Day
To Take me
To The Stars.

My Words
Will be of  Heart
Wrote
By Care and  Love.

The Ink I will Use
Is Tears  That Fell
Dipped, in Sorrows
When Hurt  was Held.

The Blotters Wet
Stain
With many Tears
That Fell.

I Cannot
Wipe it Away
By Saying,
I never Felt..

A Poeatreeman

Dedicated To God

If, I Built
A Chest of Gold
Would  it not
Be Better
To Put in  Words.

More Precious,
That Speak of Each?

Would, not
The Heart
Be  Broken
By Trying
To Carry
All  the  Gold?

Love
Is much Lighter
Yet Heavy
On the  Soul.

Would  it not
Be  Best
If  we all Cared
A  Little   more?

Than the Words
I Have to  Write
Would  not be Filled
With so much Tears.

Love
Would Hold Us
For The  Years.

If you Were
a Genie

I Would Rub you
all The Time


To See What
I Would Get

Each Time
I Rubbed
your Bottle

Making a Wish

I Would Have your
Special Kiss

I'd Wish
I Would Have

All The Love you Have
To Give

Keeping you
as my Special Friend

For all The Things
I Want For you

Is To Make you
Nice and Happy

If I Should Rub you
all The Way

Remember
I am your Friend...

THE SMILING POPE

THE SMILING POPE


That Infectious Smile,
was your Love

To show the World,
you have their Love

For you open your Heart,
to all the People

Gave them Hope
with your Laughter

For your Easy ways,
in which you Reigned

Brought the World,
a Little closer

Now your, Smiles
and Laughter

Has Turned ,
the World to Tears

For you, are not
with Them

In their Hour,
of Fear

For God, has Chosen
to Take you

Place you ,
Far From Here

yet!

He Left you,
with your Smile Here.
