Steel Words

Steel Words

 

As molten iron and steel are forged and
tempered into any form or shape in the hands of man,
words can be boiled in controversy or conflict,
and constructed into platforms where ideas are
broadcast which affect the lives of millions of people,
even if they never heard the words at all.
Some call this process government, and after
all the half-lies or misquotes are exposed, there
is a truth which survives longer than rusted
twisted metal from forgotten wars or
abandoned refrigerators by the side of the road.

Criminal Love Affair

Criminal Love Affair

My love for you is criminal,
Not because it’s against the law.
It shouldn’t exist at all,
For you have robbed me of
My freedom, who I thought
I was and who I used to be.
You made me change who
I am, and now I depend on you
To be the main part of my life.
Each day would not be complete
Without the touch of your kiss.
My life will never be the same,
But somehow I feel like a
Winner in this game of love.

Life’s a Beach

Life’s a Beach

Wave after wave of terrorism, disease, and hunger
and drug abuse erodes the sand of the American beaches.
People run to the water to cool themselves from
the hot sand and blowing wind. Riptides of
historically reoccurring problems of domestic violence,
crime, discrimination and poverty never seem
to reach the water’s surface, and they flow parallel to
the beach, pulling people under the water unexpectedly.
Even the best of swimmers suffer, and
some even drown as heroes.  The politicians in lifeguard
suits proclaim something should be done about those
wanting help, but they debate and argue about how to do
it while soaking in the sun in the elevated towers on the
beach. Decisions are rarely made as their tans get darker
The beach itself is not that safe because medical waste
from the polluted water rolls on shore and shells
are not the only things in the sand that are sharp.
Sunglasses help change the depth of perception,
but the view never changes. The problems still
exist and not much is done to correct them.

Super Hero

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Brian Kohut

Super Hero

I can be a super hero,
and save the world from all
the evil that lurks in the shadows,
and shines in the light.
I can move mountains, and never be
afraid to fight for what’s right.
But the only thing that can save me
from a broken heart, is if you decide to stay,
and never be apart from me.

The One You Love (Is the One You Hate)

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

The One You Love (Is the One You Hate)

It may be hard to realize now that
the one you love is the one you hate.
It is one of those strange mysterious
circumstances created by fate.
But the change may not happen
If you take too long, it’ll be too late.
Take a few minutes to figure out how
to convert your feelings into a date.
If the feelings become mutual, invested
emotions could find a lifetime mate.

Dog for Sale

Dog for Sale

I have a great dog for sale,
An active 1 year old male.
I’ve taught him a few tricks,
With reward of dog biscuits,
I can’t take him along
Since I have to move,
And the place I’m going
Won’t take pets as a rule.
I want him to have a home
So he can be happy, not alone.
He likes to run and play outside,
And he likes to go on car rides.
He’s young, has lots of energy,
And he’s very children friendly.
So take down this phone number
I’m about to write and this playful
critter could be yours tonight.

Tea with Honey

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Brian Kohut

Tea with Honey

I made a cup of tea without sugar,
and used a teaspoon of honey instead.
The taste was naturally different,
and it went well with my toasted bread.
Necessity was the force of change
to a sip of temporary paradise.
I was surprised to run out of sugar,
the commonly used daily spice.
Unexpected pleasures can arrive
from required substitutions.
Resistance to change can stop
processes of finding solutions.

I can see now

I can see now

A distant memory shines from the past, a long time ago.
I should have guessed it wouldn’t last, but now I know
Because after all these years, I can see how I have changed
Or the maybe the world is different, and I have remained
The person I always I have been under the present disguise.

Family Trees

Family Trees

 

From birth,
a life is a series yes’s and no’s,
zeros and ones,
a code of if’s and then’s,
a constant flow chart
of decisions made by others
and a recognized gene pool,
and eventually by that person
which create the roots
of the family tree. This is a
cycle which repeats itself
every other second
of each day in the world
creating  a diverse forest
which must coexist on this
world of limited resources.

Popular Penny

Popular Penny

I bought a second
flip phone for a business
I could call my own.
Soon I got calls, texts,
and messages for a
person named Penny,
but the old phone
now has a new home.
She must be a
popular person judging
from all those who
she has known.
