Friday Morning Blues

Friday Morning Blues

It’s 7:57, and I need to be at work at 8.
My boss will mad at me if I’m late, again.
He pretends, but doesn’t care all.
I don’t need to be there for that conference call.
I’d rather be some place other than my desk at work.
Having a big trust fund would not hurt me at all.
I’d have a ball, y’all.
I can’t be the person they expect me to be
Until I get my first cup of hot coffee.
It’s Friday, the last day of the week.
Traffic is backed up; I can’t cross the street.
All the stoplights seem to turn red.
I think I should have just stayed in bed.
Then I walk through the door with my company smile.
I then I get paid to work for a little while
All this will change when I get back home.
I get a beer or two and then get stoned.

Price of Truth

Price of Truth

Bluetruthcard

 Price of Truth

A survey said a child tells his first lie at age 5.
I wonder where the truth will hide, when,
Later as a man, a stranger challenges his pride,
And justice in the eyes of the law is put aside.
People may get hurt or die as a cost, and
through generations, love and respect are lost.
The innocent may be convicted and punished,
While the guilty can remain free.
There is a price to be paid for the truth,
And it is charged to you and me.

Train’s on the Track

Train’s on the Track

Train’s on the track, and it’s taking too long.
The traffic is bad, and what else could go wrong?
Cars ahead are stacked up with their place in line,
and to get through all of this will take more time.
There is some place else I really would like to be,
but here I am waiting for what seems like infinity.
Music on the radio helps to keep me in a good mood,
and I hope this temporary experience is over soon.

I once knew a girl like you

I once knew a girl like you

I once knew a girl like you.
She was a high school cheerleader
with nothing to do but boys in school.
That was her idea of having fun,
until one day she found they guy
she thought was the only one.
She got a ring, had a big wedding,
and now they have twin sons.

But more often than not,  she’s alone,
raising the children on her own
while he’s singing songs on the road.
He drinks, smokes, and gets stoned,
while to make ends meet, she gets a loan
so she won’t lose what she calls home.
He says the new record will go gold
as soon as the albums are all sold.

I once knew a girl like you,
But that was a long time ago.
They say I have been a success, but
I’m always looking for another show.
I’d like to get to know you better,
but my heart says you really should go.
You’re young, beautiful and have a life.
I don’t want to make mistake twice in a row.

Your smile

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

Your smile

I can tell from the past few weeks
that things are not the same.
If it’s someone else in your life.
Then I don’t want to know the
person’s name. It doesn’t matter.
We are really both to blame.

We can still live together,
and there is no need to fight.
All we need is a little time to
make sure things work out right.
I’ll make changes if you decide
to spend your nights at home.

We have spent much time
fighting each others fears.
This has made our love last beyond
hours into over twenty years.
We have shared memories of our
children and their new tears.

We both deal with the changes
since the children are now gone.
Time and age make us wiser,
and the days can seem long,
but changes can make us better
singing our old love songs.

We can show by example that
marriage is not out of style,
and though people will change
love can last more than a while.
After all these years, I can wake up
in the morning to see your smile.

Room in My Heart

Editor’s Note:  Creativity often overlaps ideas, and some people may seem  to think that this poem is similar to the “A Room In My Heart” lyric sung by Faith Hill, however the story lines are different enough to make the two separate works.  In fact the poem below was written without every hearing or knowing of Hill’s recording. Only an Internet check showed the coincidence.

Room in My Heart

Now there’s room in my heart for you.
At a time, there was no door to go through.
It was just easier to keep everyone out of my life,
Since the end to my problems weren’t in sight.

I didn’t feel like talking or looking at anyone.
Living a daily life was a chore and not fun.
I saw you at the park smiling at me one day,
And then I began to feel a different way.

I didn’t know who you were at the time,
And now I’m proud you are a friend of mine.
You listened to everything that I had to say,
and my problems seemed to slip away.

We laughed, cried and talked into the night.
You made me feel everything was going right,
And helped me plan to undo what I’ve done.
Your patience let me to know you’re the one.

Now there’s lots of room in my heart for you.
Thanks to your love, my life has been renewed.

The Fly

The Fly

So here you are again.
You were here a few minutes ago.
What places have you visited,
or should I really know?
I think you should go
before I find the fly swatter
and kill you next time you
happen to come within range.

Give me a quote

Give me a quote

A TV reporter listened carefully,
as the camera rolled and
he quickly wrote down notes
about what the poet had to say.
He said he would like a quote.

The gray-haired man paused
And carefully said,
“This is the way it can be.
There is order in chaos, and such
thing as random certainly.
With out day, there is no night.
I hope this is alright.”
