I Saw an Angel

I Saw an Angel

I heard an angel playing a simple song.
Her body was surrounded by a yellow glow.
Her face was somehow very familiar.
Her gown moved as the wind flirted a blow.
As I breathed, I valued every breath .
Maybe it wasn’t the time for me to go.
All she said was “I will be back.”

I saw an angel playing a simple song.
Even in the day she had a yellow glow.
Maybe she was from life or from death.
There wasn’t any way for me to know.
But I reacted quickly to save your life.
Maybe it wasn’t the time for you to go.
All she said was “I will be back.”

I saw an angel playing a simple song.
Even in the night she had a yellow glow.
That evening it was clear who was a star.
With your moves, it was all your show.
I stopped you from doing the last joke.
Maybe it wasn’t the time for you to go.
All she said was “I will be back.”

I heard an angel playing a simple song.
Her body was surrounded by a yellow glow.
She walked normally upon the water.
Stream wandered carelessly as it flowed.
Like Time, she could change it’s course.
Maybe it wasn’t the time for it to go.
All she said was “I will be back.”

I saw an angel playing a simple song.
Even in the day she had a yellow glow.
The sun continued to shine as usual,
allowing all plant and animal life to grow.
Perhaps she could make it all disappear.
Maybe it wasn’t time for the world to go.
All she said was, “I will be back.”

For Sale

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Bill Kelso

For Sale

Years pass before a spring becomes a tree.
The sprawling roots tap into the ground deep.
By then the ivy clings to the bricks.
The growth covered the wall and red turns green.
Echoes of children’s cries and laughter fill
the now empty rooms and hallways of the house.
The kitchen cabinets are desolate and deserted
A corner hole in the floorboard evidences a mouse,
but even that rodents is gone, and the family, too.
The wind blows between the cracks in the glass,
but not many of the windows need to be repaired.
The real estate agent says this house has real class.
Should I resurrect the dead and enter the tomb?
Can I somehow make this place come alive?
I get a feeling that no matter how many families
stay here, the house, itself, seems to survive.

I’m Back

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

I’m Back

I’m back, again,
for the last time.
I want to be in your arms,
and be taken by your charms.

I’m back, again,
I’ve seen the light.
I’m not the guy that I used to be.
I’ve changed; I’m a brand-new me.

I’m back, again,
problems are in the past.
I’ve promised to make a new start.
You’re the owner of this lonely heart.

I’m back, again,
just like I was before.
I want my feelings for you to show.
This is my way of letting you know

I’m back.

Phreee

Phreee

All I need is either on my back or in this old army duffel bag.
I go where I want to go any time. I’m phreee.
Sometimes the food I get and where I sleep depends on other people’s charity.
If the weather decides to rain, sometimes I feel the drops on me.
When It starts to snow, there are places I go I know I can stay warm.
I have old boots for shoes, and my feet tell me how the day will end.
Peace is my friend, and being phreee is part of my soul.

No Beans

No Beans

Don’t need no beans for supper now.
You know what happens after that plate.
Don’t need no beans for supper now.
I want to have a fat, juicy steak.

Don’t need no beans for supper now.
Even if you added fresh cornbread.
Don’t need no beans for supper now.
This month I’ve been beaned to death.

Don’t need no beans for supper now.
I know my paycheck arrived late.
Don’t need no beans for supper now.
So, let’s go out and celebrate!

Back to Today

Back to Today

Yesterdays have seen better days
And now I need to find a way
To get myself back to today.
I knew what to do,
And who I was before,
But the more I try,
I’m not so sure.
Time has a way of slipping
Away before my eyes.
My smile is a thin disguise
Of who I really am inside.

Cars and Computers

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Antonio “Tony” Alejandro Martin Gonzales

Cars and Computers

Cars and computers seem to have their own mind
when they decide its good to break down.
It is financially never a great time, and it
happens away from home or on other side of town.

You follow maintenance and updates the best you can,
but they are manufactured to become obsolete.
The more use, the sooner have to be replaced again.
Its a game where consumers will always be beat.

For a price and parts, shops can restore these things,
but it is justified as the cost of some faded memory.
Practically, it is not worth it to pull these strings.
There are junks yards across America full of history.

Fall

Fall

I feel a nip in the air,
and I’m sure it will get colder.
It’s a time of Thanksgiving, and
now I feel another year older.

Sunsets are a little different,
and the days seem to get shorter.
The porch light stands out as
the nights seem a bit darker.

It’s a time of change,
as the seasons tend to go,
when leaves turn colors and
nature puts on her show.

Party Girl

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Antonio “Tony” Alejandro Martin Gonzales.

Party Girl

This goes to the girl with the flower in her hair,
I could feel the weight of your stare.
Did you want somebody to please?
I wondered why you thought it could be me.
I was there to get away from classes,
Just to hang out and drink with friends,
Where the red cup refills never end
And I see things fly beyond my glasses.
I talked with you for just a while,
But I felt that you weren’t my style,
I’m really not sure what that is.
My lips are picky about who they kiss.

History Lesson

History Lesson

There once was a popular king, not too long ago,
Who was thought to be able to converse with the gods
And was able to tell what the world was really like,
But the words he spoke were often in strange tongues,
Unlike any language in existence, so his closest advisors
Had the uncomfortable duty to interpret and re-interpret
What the popular king really meant to say so that his
Subjects could apply the meanings to their regular lives.
He was worshiped, and could do nothing wrong.  He
Was rich in every way, and gold was his standard from
The toilet he used to the fleet of cars he owned.
His wealth was gleamed from the people he taxed,
Leaving the lower classes believing they were rich
In the ideas he communicated with the Gods,
But the only way he could receive these messages
Was through the use of special royal medicines
Which he was alone allowed to use, by royal decree.
It was easy to see how others could believe,
For he was the King and could do or say no wrong.
He stayed alive too long, for the kingdom fell
Apart, and his people suffered broken hearts;
And those advisors tried to take advantage
Of their position were soon departed,
Until the day the King died, for he was killed
By one of his loyal followers, poor in spirit,
But rich in bullets which came from a gun,
And then the king was done.
