LIGHTNING THROUGH THE NIGHT | POEATREEMAN on Xanga





LIGHTNING THROUGH THE NIGHT

               
Dear Jesus
I know you can protect us all

I know not if its meant to be

In this time of fright

Where storms are lightning
through the night

Please take your hand
and shield my fate

For scared am I
of nature's wake

Thunder and cracking of ever roar

Makes my heart pound with the storm

These times I think you're mad at me

Oh yes!
I hear your voice with might

Shaking in my soul with fright

Praying you'll hear my plea

Praying you won't take me

Praying you'll see me through

In this time of dreadful flights

Where storms are lightning
through the night

Take your hand
and guide me through

Even when it's shining too.

Dedicated to Claudia

HOW PRECIOUS ?


How Precious
is Rain
To Nature’s Life ?
   
How Precious
is Tears
To Love ?

How Precious
is God’s Love
To us ?
       
How Precious
is Our World
He has given us ?

How Precious
are we
To see oneself ?

Than

How Precious
is Mother Nature
When She
is asking
For our help ?

Does She
Have to cry in Pain
For anyone
To hear the Rain ?

A Poeatreeman

Dedicated To

Mother Nature
For She
is holding
All of us
Feeding
Our every Nature.

Poet's Note

I Pray
it is not Tears
Who are Falling.

For Sorrow
Needs the Rain.

Will the Residents

Will be
Hazardous Waste

No Insurance

Insuring
the Residents

What Insurance

Taking
Their Policies

To Insure
not you

Paying my

Will the Waste
Tax  me Too?

Higher or Lower

Will my Home
be Safe from you?

Remember

Who is going

HAPPY EASTER YO ALL










AN EASTER TALE





Love
does not
always
hop





When
it does
hop to it





What
am I
a bunny?





Just love
hopping
to you





The last time
I looked





I did not
have a tail





Then
why
am I

hopping
around?





Love's
got me
by the hare





I never
know
when

love
will come





When
it does
I'll take

it all





Love
will
carry me

through
tomorrow





Beyond
eternity
to the
first day





What
am I to do





If
someone tries
to
pull my leg?





A lucky foot
they won't get





A HEART OF
LOVE IS WHAT I HAVE..





They won't
find it in

any basket





You'll find it
when love

comes to you..





A THOUGHT!




Don't
stay
in your shell





If
you want
the hare

to win





Don't
race to love





It
will
come
when

you care





Don't
wait
for
tomorrow





Love
is here
today





Don't
cry
tomorrow





You have
the rest
of
the day.





DEDICATED TO REBECCA




A Poeatreeman




I am not
here
for
Easter,





all the days
you care





I
won't be
in a basket





My
nest egg
is in

my Heart





If
you
find
the

Golden one





You'll
have
a Heart

that truly
cares.

THE PASSION OF CHRIST | POEATREEMAN on Xanga

A PATH OF LIFE


His
road
is laden with thorns

Still
He
walked upon it

Knowing
the pain it holds.


His
path was not
paved with gold

Still
He
is a prince I am told

He
wore only sandals

To
walk the long, long
road home.


His
burdens were many

For
He
carried our Souls

He
cares for each one

Our sorrows in tow.

He
lifted our spirits

When
He
sacrificed all

He
gave us salvation

To make us all whole
He
Suffered the Cross

Paid our tolls.

Heaven is opened,
For each to behold.


Remember
it is once

Don’t
take the other road

You will find it Ends
When
you burn up the road.


Dedicated to all

I hope you’re in line
Heaven’s there
For you to snare

Throw in your line
You’ll soon be there

Take your conscience
It will help
when
you ask for a prayer.


Fisher of men,
God coined the line

I
hope you catch
The catch of all time

A
place in Heaven
For you to find.


Remember
the Good Thief

He
caught Faith in time

He
put His Heart out

God
pulled in the line.


A Poeatreeman

What
path
would God take?

Rightly and Truly
it
is hard
on your consciences

When
He is not with you.

    BOY, DOES THIS EVER BRING BACK SOME MEMORIES
  • JoyousOne23
    This was one of my favorites back when we had some really good comedy sitcoms.  The premise was funny but also made you wish we had more teachers in our school system like Kotter - that really took an interest and concern for our young people and their growth into adulthood.
    This statement was on Wikipedia about the show and Kotter - "Recognizing that he is his students' last chance to learn enough to
    survive beyond school, he soon befriends them while they learn to
    recognize and appreciate his commitment and faith in their potential. "
    With our school systems failing our kids' potentials by lowering the standards and cutting back on potentially great teachers, this is a hope for our nation to wake up and get back to the basics of teaching our young people to become our future.

WHO GIVES A HOOT




WHO GIVES A HOOT?


A wise old bird
who gave no hoot


Owl
would you do it?


I would
give a hoot,


To show
I cared


I would
go out on a limb,


To let
you know
I am there.


I
may
get ruffled,


if
I don't try


I will
never know
what
it is to fly.


Unless
I take
the steps
to do it.


Life
is there
not just
to view it.


It is up
to me
to share
in its
wonders.


It is up
to me
to care
for it all.


Give a hoot, 
if
I am ever
to feel it


Give
heart and love,


life
will come
through it.


Don't
flutter
around ,


Unless
you're on
a training mission.


Hoot
and holler
if you care.


It starts
your engine
to get you there.


I am
not a bird
nor a plane


Why
am I taking
off this way?


I
am on a runway,


It's my heart
that is flying about.


I better
hold on
until the end.


I
must have care,


If
I am ever
to come
through it.


A THOUGHT!

I have heart, 
that can
endear the worst.


I have love, 
that will
take the fall.


I have care, 
for pain
is not alone.


I have God, 
to help me
through it all...;


Dedicated To Jennifer

A Poeatreeman

Love
is nesting
in my heart.


Born
from feelings, 
when tears
fell out.


I lost not love,
but gained caring.


For
my love grew out.


Now
I am there,
to share with all.


holding
it once more.


For
caring brought it out.


Now
love will be once more.


Tears
won't be without..

    THE MEASURE OF A MAN SUNG BY ELTON JOHN





    YouTube - ELTON JOHN - THE MEASURE OF A MAN (ROCKY V)



    WHEN THE TRUMPETS BLOW STRONG

    I hear
    The echoes of a call
    That once was loud
    Now seems gone
    Calling back
    To be
    Remembered.

    Dare
    I wake them up at all
    Or should I keep them
    Where they are
    In
    The Triumphs of the past
    Where they're held
    In Fond Remembrance?

    Dare
    I beckon to the call
    Of The Trumpets
    Blowing strongly
    Calling back
    For me to answer
    Or can
    I Reach where I was
    Then
    On top of it all?

    Or will
    I Fail and Lose it all
    With
    The Triumphs of before
    Or be Remembered
    For my Feats
    Because
    I Could not
    Face Defeat?

    What purpose
    Do I serve?

    In this Quest
    For going on
    To Come back
    Once more
    To Hear
    The Trumpets
    Blowing?

    Will I
    Serve it or myself?

    For Do
    I have
    The Strength
    I need
    To overcome
    All I must
    Knowing
    I Could Fail?

    Most of all
    To myself

    Do
    I have
    The will in me
    if
    I answer
    Yes,
    Is it all
    I need?

    For what is it
    That I want
    To Prove myself
    To Whom or What?

    Written for And Dedicated to

    The Greatness of Oneself
    Is to Triumph over Evil
    For Goodness is the Fight
    You must Win
    The Rounds are not Ten
    It is Minutes to the End.


    A Poet’ Note

    THE CROWN
    Oh how I would love
    To recover the crown
    It’s hard to regain
    When
    life is wearing it now.
