Words and Rings

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

Words and Rings

I don’t think a few words and a diamond ring
can make our relationship last counting all
the times we fought and broke up in the past.
We can have differences, but we also need a
common ground where a sound love will grow.
I don’t know if your plans are just an excuse to
hang around, especially when things are good.
Would you want to spend your life with me?

The Poem of the Day has been a daily feature on Twitter and on Facebook by the World of Words by Elias Tobias website since June 19 of this year to increase the visibility of the site on Internet landscape, and the POD has been successful. While the overall ranking of the WOW has decreased, statistics shoe people are staying on the site longer and reading more as evidenced by a negative bounce rate for the site. Beginning January 2015, the Poem of the Day will become the Poem of the week, with a previously published poem on the WOW highlighted on each Monday. The administrative staff thanks those who are eager to return to the poetry and photography blog on a regular basis. New published poetry will be posted every Friday as it has been the last several years. So go to Twitter at https://twitter.com/PoetEliasTobias or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/EliasTobiasWorldofWords?sk=wall for the Poem of the Week in 2015.

If Things Were Different

If Things Were Different

If things were different,
Our relationship would be different.
It comes down to what we’re looking for.
Your happiness is probably behind your
front door.
A child is waiting for you, playing on
the floor.
The decision is clear, and I’ll be on
my way.
I’ll be back to check on you someday.

If things were different,
Our relationship would be different.
It depends on what’s best for me and you.
It was a great time when you showed me
your tattoo,
the little one where people don’t
normally view.
The decision is clear, and I’ll be on
my way.
I’ll be back to check on you someday.

Proposal

Proposal

After many nights of being alone,
With a place for my hat as home,
I saw my best friend shot dead.
Maybe my gunfighter’s life has to end.

Then I thought of coming back to you,
Even last time I thought we’d be through.
I found out, now, you married someone,
And also have a fine 12-year-old son.

Your man had to protect his pride, and
The price he paid was a bullet and died.
Now I can be a role model to your son,
A former gunfighter without a gun.

That boy of yours can learn from me,
And the resemblance is easy to see.
I left you after a fight 12 years ago.
Is there something I need to know?

We could get married and be a family,
And I know your love will set me free.
I’ve carried my love for you for so long,
Like a woman loved in a cowboy trail song.

Maybe a man with my kind of past
Isn’t the person who‘d make love last.
There could be trouble if I would stay
Since challengers would come my way.

My proposal is not just another line.
You can save me from a life of crime.
What are you feeling in your heart?
It can be a place to have a new start.

Kyle Morgan Stewart- new LSC fraternity member

Kyle Morgan Stewart – new LSC Member

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

Kyle Morgan Stewart

Kyle Morgan Stewart

Kyle Morgan Stewart is the 11th member of the unofficial fraternity Lambda Sigma Chi fraternity, a group of writers associated with Elias Tobias from a variety of professions and backgrounds.

Kyle is 58 years old, and a retired commercial pilot having worked 30 years for two major companies through various corporate mergers.  He is a veteran of the United States Air Force serving 10 years as a pilot. He left the armed service to get married, and live a more civilian lifestyle.  His GI bill benefits afforded him and his family a new house and training to get his commercial pilot’s license.  It was a start of a career that meant more training as required by law to keep up with new planes and technology.

He presently lives in Indianapolis, IN, the same city as his daughter, Denise, lives.  He said he and his wife, Gigi, like the city most of all the places he worked, they like the changes in seasons, and most of all are close to their grandchildren.

Kyle was sponsored into the fraternity by Elias Tobias after Denise began reading the Poem of the Day tweets of Twitter.  She was advised by one of her friends to check out the World of Words by Elias Tobias.  Denise was aware that her father is quite a poet, but it was a personal hobby only those near to him knew about…until she contacted the website.  She had talked her father to contribute a poem or two. It started there and more poems were read, until he was nominated to join the unofficial fraternity.  After the usual time to get the busy members to vote on the choice, the path was as cleared for Kyle’s landing in September.

To read about the other members of the Lambda Sigma Chi’s , click on the LSC logo at the top of this page or click here.

Here are a few of the poems to introduce the newest member of the unofficial Lambda Sigma Chi fraternity.  More will be published under the LSC banner.

My Shadow

A dark image moves around me,
most would consider it a shadow,
but it moves when I am still, and
exists in the dark as well as light.
The image of me prances right
in front of me and stares into
my confused, unbelieving face.
I hope this is only a weird dream.

Love of Gold

Now we have a chance to mine
our new love in the future time.
We have claimed each other’s hearts.
We made public promises not to part.
It will take effort to work this land.
We may get blisters on our hands.
Our muscles will groan since they will hurt,
but in the end, we’ll see our total worth.
Shining moments will yield in the earth
as the years pass in the constant search.
These precious memories can’t be sold.
We are miners for love of gold.

Links

A link to the past
Can be put in a few words.
I know you think that
This thought is absurd,
But look at the catch phrases
That defy the tests of time –
D-Day, Iwo Jima, Hiroshima,
38th Parallel, Ho Chi Min and
Rosebud – just to name a few,
and all those important days,
like 9-11. Where were you?
These words evoke images that
Are burned into our memories.
When others get so old that
Just getting around is a chore,
Servicemen will sweat, and never
Forget being a veteran of war.
As the world goes round, it’s
Only a few words which stop
Us in our beaten paths, and
They cause us to think, however
Briefly, about the past,
And the way we will act
Or react in the future.

Soldiers

Veterans day

Soldiers

Soldiers don’t make war;
They just fight in them,
And when the last bullet flies,
They hope it’s the end.
When they stop to count the costs,
Soldiers know what they’ve lost.
Some are hurt with lost limbs
And some paid the ultimate price –
Lives lost are the biggest sacrifice.
Each of them has their own story,
And say they don’t fight for the glory.
They fight for freedom’s defense,
And to protect their fellow friends.
When peace does make its round,
Shouts of joy will sound from
All the nations in the world.

Follow Me

 

People need to be respected like people,
and, with their faults, they need to be free.
Each one needs to grow into who they can be.
If you agree with all this, then follow me.
I’m not calling for a radical revolution, but
I’m just advocating an alternative solution.
Each one of us has a unique identification,
and people need to be respected like people.
If you agree with all this, then follow me.
