Somewhere along the lines-

Somewhere along the lines-

Somewhere along the lines,
I lost it
Went a little Astray,
Forgot it
Broke away from the path,
And wandered
Away from my first love,
Poetry.

I wrote but it was all,
blurred out
Filled with words that contained,
No heart sounds
And the tears that I poured,
On paper
Seemed to wander with lost,
Desire

But oh writing, it’s time-
To find you
Got to mend back the rails,
And track on
Bleed the words of my heart,
In rhythm
Pen and paper in hand-
I’ll make it.

This Time Around…

This Time Around…

I strayed and forgot
My purpose in life;
But oh dear God,
I am willing to try;
And find that light
Which’s eluded my sight;
To gain your pleasure-
A place in your castle high.

This time I will strive
With every bone in my might;
Strain my eyes,
For a hint of the light;
Find my path and
Gloriously stride;
Thwart the thorns,
Keeping my eyes on the prize-
A place In your castle high
