Solitaire

Solitaire

We are all connected to each other
in at least one way, if not by dozens more,
and the feeling that we are alone should be
a fleeting moment living in a sea of humanity.
Yet there are those who play solitaire, in its
many forms, with the knowledge that they
know it is the only game a person can play
by themselves and lose, winning , on average,
14 percent of the time (if you don’t cheat,
and that’s against the rules, you know.)
Besides, if you do win, how are you
going to celebrate? Go to the bar and
have one of the voices in your head
buy yourself a drink?

She’s Gone

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Alexander Michael Dunbar, one of newest members of LSC.

She’s Gone

Sometimes reality is too real,
and I’m not sure how to feel.
I’m not sure why she’s the one
who got the bullet from the gun.
The girl was just playing outside
when the robber missed his mark.
Now my baby will never come inside,
and I’m not sure where to start.
It doesn’t really matter how
the Police shot the robber dead.
I’m not sure what to do now,
since I hear her voice in my head.
I try to deny she’s not here, or
think she’s asleep in her room.
There’s a hole in my heart I fear,
and feel she will return soon.
I hear a voice that says she’s gone
and I start to look around
to find the source of that sound.
Dad says the situation went wrong.
We need to celebrate the years of life
he says with tears in his eyes.
Then I look around and see my wife
and the only thing to do is cry.

My Destiny

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Brian Kohut

My Destiny

I must be allowed to fulfill my destiny.
I need to be who I think I ‘m supposed to be.
There will be many obstacles in my way.
To these people, here’s what I have to say.

When climbing a mountain, the cold
wind will blow into my face.
When walking a desert, the heat and
sand will be my enemy.
When dealing with people, they will
try to put me in their place.
When it comes to my life, I won’t
be denied my destiny.

I must be allowed to fulfill my destiny.
I need to be who I think I ‘m supposed to be.
There will be many obstacles in my way.
To these people, here’s what I have to say.

When running over hills, I will
survive to win any race.
When writing essays of life, I
will choose words perfectly.
When challenged by law, I will
win each and every case.
When it comes to my life, I won’t
be denied my destiny.

I must be allowed to fulfill my destiny.
I need to be who I think I ‘m supposed to be.
There will be many obstacles in my way.
I’ll climb every hurdle I meet without delay.

I want to be a witness

A song lyric from LSC brother Rev. Paul Abernathy, from his church’s choir.

I want to be a witness

I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness to your love, Lord (together).
I’m a soldier for your crown (soldier for your crown-bass),
I’m a soldier for your crown (soldier for your crown-bass),
I’m a soldier for your crown (soldier for your crown-bass),
I’m a soldier for your crown, saved by our love (together).
They need to hear the message (to hear the message-bass),
They need to hear the message (to hear the message-bass),
They need to hear the message (to hear the message-bass),
They need to hear the message Christ died for us (together).
Christ can remove all your sins (remove all your sins-bass)
Christ can remove all your sins (remove all your sins-bass)
Christ can remove all your sins (remove all yoru sins-bass)
Christ can remove all your sins if you let him (together).
Believe Jesus is your Lord (Jesus is your Lord-bass)
Believe Jesus is your Lord (Jesus is your Lord-bass)
Believe Jesus is your Lord (Jesus is your Lord-bass)
Believe Jesus is your Lord, and you’ll be saved (together)
This is the key to His Grace (key to His Grace-bass),
This is the key to His Grace (key to His Grace-bass),
This is the key to His Grace (key to His Grace-bass),
This is the key to His Grace for a new life (together),
I’m a soldier for your crown, saved by our love (together).
They need to hear the message Christ died for us (together).
Christ can remove all your sins if you let him (together).
Believe Jesus is your Lord, and you’ll be saved (together)
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness to your love, Lord (together).

I Lied

I Lied

This is where I am and how I feel
After I had to grab a parachute and
Strap it on after the wing of the plane
Caught on fire and had to jump to
Save my life. I opened the chute
In time, but closed my eyes as I
Fell through the air. I lied.
I never was on a plane, nor did I
Have to jump into the air,
But I was on my way with plans
For the future and other people
Having new expectations for me,
But things changed just as quickly
As if I had to place the parachute
On my back to avoid disaster.
A bit dramatic I suppose, this lie,
But to me it’s the real truth since
The sudden change of fate.
This is where I am and how I feel
After I had to grab a parachute.

Let the Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In

An open door will let more light
in a room than a door that’s closed.

I think you would be surprised to know
how many people would rather live
in the silent security of the dark.

A prison is created from the thin
wooden walls, and the key to door
is found only within the heart.

They still have the ability to see
with the switch, bulb and electricity,
but that is just an artificial start.

The only solution is to brave
the future and let the sunshine in.
Instantly, the darkness will depart.

The open door can let the love
of the free into the lonely room.
The door will not keep friends apart.

The Devil’s Shadow

The Devil’s Shadow

As a kid, you walked in the devil’s shadow,
And a dark cloud was over your name.
Your family tried their best to help you out,
But grief fell down around you like rain.

As a man, you walked in the devil’s shadow,
And that dark cloud grew over your name.
You learned to master the six-gun well,
Your actions have caused many people pain.

You seem to enjoy living in the devil’s shadow,
And stealing and killing is just a game.
Those who live by the sword will die by it.
When you die, you have yourself to blame.

I was once like you, following the devil’s shadow,
Drinking and taking the Lord’s name in vain.
But now I’ve changed and found an inner peace.
I live my life now without the Mark of Cain.

Frustration

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

Frustration

Sometimes I want to shout,
but nothing comes out.
The silence is killing me.
There’s a fine line between
love and hate, when the
hands of fate make
rules bend to the user.
I end up the loser, and
it seems there’s nothing
I can do, but shout.

Nothing comes out.

Master Jokemaker

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Paul Abernathy

Master Jokemaker

God, with His infinite wisdom, power, and
glory, surely has a sense of humor.
A being can’t be serious and creative
all the time without stopping to smile.
Indeed, there are moments in His space
that he can enjoy the fruits of His labor
here on earth with a good laugh.
Why else would he pose riddles as the Master
Jokemaker for us to solve so seriously?

Far Away

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

Far Away

Real love was far away,
but I see it now in your eyes,
and I feel it in my heart,
and I taste it with my lips
as you hold me close.
After the night is day, I
know you’ll be staying,
even when you’re far away.
