A LITTLE HOPE | POEATREEMAN on Xanga




A LITTLE HOPE


I am just
a Little Hope

That
came
with
your wishes


God
will come
pass the day

Bringing
light
throughout
your days


Share
your heart
faith
with Him


I
am just
a little care

That
came
to let
you know


Yet
when
I see Him

My
heart
grows beyond
this world


For
only love
can reach Him

Only
faith
will let you see


One
little wish

Hoping
you find the way.


A THOUGHT!

Care comes
not packed
with sweetness

But
sorrow and pain


It's
how
you care for it
that lets love grow

Tears
will help
the heart to know


God
will heal
it all for you

Broken hearts
are part
of this world


Time
can heal
God can too


Lose
not
a second
to find His way


Pray
with
your heart
He
will
come through


For
your faith
carried Him
to you.



A Poeatreeman

I am here
when
you don't see me

I am here
when you do


I
will be near
when you need me


Have
faith
I will get through


Say
a little prayer
I will be with you.

HOW WONDERFUL, SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW | POEATREEMAN on Xanga





HOW WONDERFUL

                        
How Wonderful
it would be

If we
Would
Show
how much we Care

How
we can be Human


How Wonderful
it Would be

To
See us Treat
our Fellow Man

As
One of us
Not Inhuman


How Wonderful
it Would be

To Travel to Earth
Find
out we are all Human


How Wonderful
it Would be

If
we Could Extend

Our Hand in Friendship
Not Strike
it against Mankind


How Wonderful
it Would be

If
we had no Wars to Win


How Wonderful
it Would be

If
we Could Help
each Other's Land

make
this World a Better Place


How Wonderful
it Would be

If
I Could do all These things


How Wonderful
it Would be

If
we
Could all be Mortal Friends


How Wonderful
is my Dream.?


Dedicated To
the Hope of Mankind


Tribute To
Louis Armstrong-Satchmo.

Oh How I Wish it Would be.
Though I wear my Glasses
I Cannot hide what I see.

THE CORE OF MAN | POEATREEMAN on Xanga










  • THE CORE OF MAN


    From
    The First Bite
    Of  The Apple

    His Appetite

    For He
    Wants
    To
    Consume
    All

    Of The Apple

    Man
    Has Become

    Satan
    Has its Core


    He Bit
    Into the Apple


    Embittering Us
    Even More


    His VENOM
    Reached
    Our Core.

  • A LESSON TO BE LEARNED


    What
    I Learned
    in School

    You
    cannot
    keep
    God away


    What
    I Learned
    in Life

    I
    see Him
    every day


    What
    I Learned
    in School

    He
    is Here
    when I pray


    What
    I Learned
    in Life

    Is to
    Thank Him
    every day


    What
    I Learned
    in School

    Is to
    Carry Him
    each day


    What
    I Learned
    in Life

    Is not
    to lose
    the way..


    A THOUGHT!

    My Lesson
    is a Lifetime
    of Learning

    The key
    will be
    was I Learning?

    The School
    I may come
    through

    Yet
    Life's another
    Journey.


    Dedicated to @Lauren  Kowan

    A Poeatreeman

    One hard Lesson
    is fought each day

    Give
    not in
    to ease the way

    Look
    at it all
    to see the best

    know the worst
    was not the way.

    A Poet's Note


    Whenever
    I come through
    the Worst

    Know
    the Best
    is in view


    Whenever
    the Best
    is not to see

    Take
    the Worst
    make it Better


    Keeping
    Perspective
    will get
    You through


    The Best
    and Worst
    is what You do


    God
    is here
    To help You through.

AN OLD OAK TREE | POEATREEMAN on Xanga







  • AN OLD OAK TREE


    You are
    a Young
    Flower

    I am
    An
    Old
    Oak
    Tree


    You are
    Blossoming

    While
    I am
    Withering
    Away


    I had my
    Spring

    When
    I Blossomed
    too


    Yet
    my Branches
    are
    not as New


    My Roots
    are Firm

    Though
    the Soil
    is Loose


    I will Fall Soon
    be
    at your feet


    So Remember
    when
    I Stood


    I
    Tried
    to be Straight


    Perfect
    I Was Not

    For the Soil
    was
    not Great


    I had my Falls
    Limbs
    were
    Broken too


    Yet
    I Held Up

    When Others
    thought
    I Would not


    The Ground
    is Opened

    I must
    Return to all


    Shed no Tears
    For
    the Leaves
    have
    Finally Fallen.


    Dedicated to @Naomi Stansfield
    A Soft Soul

    A Poeatreeman

    When I was
    Young

    I Tried
    to be Straight


    I Grew as Life
    Would
    have me Stand


    Yet
    I Stood Up

    gave it a Hand

    I Thank God
    For
    Letting me Sow
    I had the Seasons
    To Change and Grow.

    A Poet’s Note


    FORTITUDE
    Do Not Say
    Timber Yet

    I Am Not
    Ready To Fall


    Do Not
    Cut Me Down

    For
    I Stand Tall


    If
    You Want To Grow

    Cut
    No One Down


    Then
    You Will Stand Tall.

  • WHERE DOES GOD STAND?


    I Hope

    In This Land


    He Was Pushed

    Out Of School


    Where Is He Now?

    Under House Rules


    Waiting

    For The Amendment


    To Pass On Through

    Waiting For

    The Government


    To Decide What To Do

    Hoping

    He Has A Prayer


    To Finally Get Through

    How Many Votes!

    Will I Have

    To Win


    Before

    You Accept Me

    For

    Who I Am?


    It Only

    Takes One's Heart


    To See Who I Am

    I Ask Not

    For Your Votes


    Only A Prayer

    Say It In Silence

    I Will Still Hear


    I Came

    To This Nation


    To Let

    You Know

    I Am Here


    It Is Up

    To All Of You


    If I Am

    To Be Near.

WHEN THE TRUMPETS BLOW | POEATREEMAN on Xanga






       

  • When the Trumpets Blow


    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?

    That I want

    To Prove myself
    To Whom or What?

    I wake

    To take
    My hand
    and due
    His Faith

    Each Morning
    God
    Has given
    To me

    Is one day
    closer
    I will be


    To follow the steps
    I must walk

    So I may know
    The Dawn of God
    .

    For where else
    Would I be

    If I follow night
    Instead of He?

  • UNDER THE TREE

     
    Under The Tree
    Is not once a year,
    It is all through Life.

    The Presents are there,
    Not all will be opened

    Each Day is a Gift ,
    For Me to open

    What I find in it,
    Is the Best I put in it

    For as I am unwrapping it,
    I am tying the bow

    The Gift I am giving,
    I am making it more

    I am putting My Heart in it,
    So I can give more

    Each Day is a Present,
    I can give too

    Love is My Best One,
    I can give to You

    Do not wait for Christmas,
    To give it too

    Share it Each Day,
    You will have it too

    No Presents to unwrap,
    When Love is Open

    Under The Tree,
    Let Us Look To Find Peace

    Under The Heavens

    Let Us Look To God
    To Start The Day

    For No Greater Gift
    Can I Give Humanity

    Than To Give Love
    Each Day

    Keep The Heart Open
    Understanding Can Be

    Forge With God
    That No Sword Will Be Used

    Peace Will Come
    When Man Loses Hatred

    Hope and Love
    are The Best I Can Give Today

    I Added A Prayer
    T

    God Willing!
    We Will See The Day.

    To All

    To Share
    In Its Goodness.



    A Poet's Note

    One World
    To Live In


    One
    To Find Peace


    One
    Chance
    To Give
    All You Have


    One
    Time Around


    One
    Symbol Of Peace
    One Symbol Of War


    Which
    One
    Will You Use
    To Stir it All?


    Only
    Man
    Can Protect Peace


    For
    War
    Will Surely
    Kill Us All...

    THE TABLE

    When Man
    INVITE’S War


    Death Will Be
    At The TABLE


    When
    Man Invite’s
    PEACE


    He
    Has a CHANCE


    To
    CLEAN The Table


    If
    Man CONTINUES
    To War


    DEATH
    Will Win Once More.

WHAT KIND OF WORLD DO YOU WANT ? | POEATREEMAN on Xanga

IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT






HOW WILL I KNOW


I want to Love you,
as Love knows how.


How do I Love you,
not lose Heart?


How do I know,
what Love to give.


Knowing,
it's what you want?


How do I know
what Love there is


Knowing
what path is right for us?


How do I know
when I am afraid to see


Knowing
I won't be hurt by you?


How do I know
what to give or take


Knowing
I am not hurting Love?


How do I Love you
and fulfill your Heart


Knowing
I am a dream come true?


How do I know
what Love has grown


Knowing
it's what we started from?


How do I know
you're there with me


Knowing
we both feel the same?


How do I know
I am yours to Love


Knowing
I am one with you?


How do I know
when Love will show


Each day it's there
shared by you


Beyond Eternity,
To the, first day.


A Poeatreeman


Whatever Love grows,
you have not, lost Heart.


it may be the treasure,
you found, you Loved.

THROUGH THE HANDS OF GOD | POEATREEMAN on Xanga






  •    

    THE RIVER OF LIFE

    I AM LIFE


    I am The End
    of my Beginning
    The Start,
    of my Life.

    I am The Day,
    Waiting for The Night

    I am The Rising
    of The Dawn
    The Starting
    of The Day.

    I am The Sun,
    Shining for Today.

    I am The Twilight,
    of my Nights
    The Fullness
    of Myself.

    I am The Moon,
    Reflecting
    Through The Night.

    I am at The Start of Time
    The Passing of The Day.

    I am The Hour Glass,
    Holding The Sands of Life.

    I am The Changes,
    That you See
    The Covers of Myself.

    I am The Season,
    Changing Mother Nature
    Helping Her To Dress.

    I am The Tide,
    That Sweeps Across
    All Things
    The Waves
    That Can not Be Stopped.

    I am Truth,
    That Showed all Things.

    I am Life Abound,
    I am Wisdom
    To Be Found.

    I am The Wealth of Ages
    The Jewels of Today.

    A THOUGHT!

    If The Sun
    Does not Set

    The Moon
    Does not Rise

    Know
    You Must Be Otherwise.


    For if you
    See no Things

    You Must Have
    Closed your Eyes

    Wake up
    It's Time
    To See your Life!.

    What Path Did I Take
    To Cross This Bridge?
    What Structure
    Did I Choose
    To Build This Bridge?.

WHEN I GET WHERE I'M GOING | POEATREEMAN on Xanga





  • I'LL NEVER COME HOME AGAIN

                        
    For I am with God
    my friend


    Though I am here
    with He


    I have not
    left you alone


    For I will see you
    my friend


    When time comes
    calling once more


    Though all the good times
    have passed


    My love
    will be here in heart


    Remember
    not all is lost


    As long as we have
    our hearts


    The love is from
    you to me


    God
    will see you through


    Now I am not here
    with you


    Just remember
    the songs we sang


    Know we were friends

    For all the good
    and bad has gone


    When we leave it's done

    So take heart
    I'll be here with He


    For His hands
    have held me this long


    I will not be lost

    For in Him
    I found my home


    My heart
    has finally known.


    Dedicated to and Written for
    George Burns
    St Peter did you hear this one
    How about letting Me on in?

WHEN I GET WHERE I'M GOING | POEATREEMAN on Xanga

SO SAD TO SAY GOODBYE; THE FRIENDS I LOVE




  • THE FRIENDS I LOVE

                          
    God washed my soul
    When I thirst for love

    Father kettle
    lifted up my spirits
    When all I had was none

    Marisa gave me dignity
    When I was at my worst

    June gave me friendship
    When I needed it the most

    Jesus cleansed my heart
    Of all the hurt and ache

    Father kettle prayed
    I would not be without faith

    Marisa kept me from
    My own worst mistake

    In spice of all the worst
    She gave herself to love

    June took her heart
    Laid it on the line

    Patching up my body
    To keep me from being hurt

    Jesus keeps me going
    Even though I hurt

    Father kettle guided me
    When I could not see

    With his love and friendship
    He showed the road to me

    Marisa with her heart
    She showed me
    how much it meant

    By doing all she did
    She gave her heart to God

    By pouring all her love
    To keep, me alive

    June, you're the one
    Love cannot deny

    All the years you took
    To care for me and cry

    God only knows
    The love you have inside

    I only pray that God
    Will not let you leave me
    Until it's time to go..

    Jesus I thank you

    For all these friends I have.
