Playing the Game

 Playing the Game

 

You look in the mirror and start to cry,
And the more you look, you wonder why.
The problem lies in the way you like to see,
And you live your life in a fake fantasy.
Your friends and boss gave you clues,
But you haven’t yet got the big news.
Dry your tears and look out a window
To get a view of the cold, real show.
Your knight in shining armor has a flaw.
One who loves you has been by all along.
Get past your problems with some change
And you will get back playing the game.

Weighed Words

Weighted Words

Editors Note: This poem was submitted to be included in the book, “Eber & Wein Publishing’s Best Poets of 2015″ following an invitation by the company and the poem will compete for prizes, including a grand prize of $2000.

When there is a wrenching pain
which haunts you every minute
of every hour of every day,
every letter spoken is an ounce,
every word a pound, and
every paragraph a ton.
Words are wasted in the heat
of arguments, but the words
which weigh the most are
the words that are never said.

We Were Two

We Were Two

There will always be a place in my heart for you.
We were two young lovers in love.
We were two who said we’d never part.
We were two who wanted a brand new start.
We were two, a pair, who shared our hearts.

There will always be a place in my heart for you.
We were two who were too much in love.
We were two who didn’t know what to do.
We were two who weren’t afraid to act like fools.
We were a two, a pair, who tore each other apart.

But there will always be a place in my heart for you.

The Price is Right

The Price is Right

The Price is Right

 

Ring a ding, ding, ding, ding,
Come on down, the Price is Right!
You now have this new prize,
and you can keep it or trade it
for what’s under the small blue box, or
what is behind curtain number two.
Just when the answer comes to you,
then, another man offers a giant
envelope which could be a big check, maybe
better than any of the other prizes yet.
In life, there are options that can get
complicated, which you need to choose.
Depending on your choices, you can become
the winner of the showcase or just lose.
Remember, in the beginning, you started
with something which was given to you free.
But Jesus paid the price with His life on Calvary,
and he now sits next to His Father for eternity.
Believe in Jesus, and you’ll never lose your way,
and if you need help all you need to do is pray.
Then, your choices in life will never go astray.

Can’t Go Back

Can’t Go Back

You can’t go back, now since decisions
Have already been made.
Money has been invested, and spent,
And people have been paid.
Events and deadlines have been
Put into motion,
And they continue like the waves
The move on the ocean.
You say you want to change your mind,
But you have signed on the dotted line.
Life, at best, is a balancing act, and once
history is made, it becomes a fact.

Da grill is gone

Da grill is gone

Da grill is gone, oh, da grill is gone
It’s not hea no mo, da grill is gone.
We has ourselves some barbeques,
Eat some chicken and drink some beers,
An then the boys played the blues,
But now, da grill is gone.

Da grill is gone, oh, da grill is gone
It’s not hea no mo, da grill is gone.
We gots the coals to glow red hot.
People came smiles on their faces,
A sweet sauce covered da food,
A secret recipe I tell you not.
But now, da grill is gone.

Some ole thief took it from the back yard.
The family’s takenit pretty dern hard.
Our friends don’t come to visit no mo.
They say git a new one from the stor,
But I made the last one from scratch,
And it built like the Titanic, to last.
Da grill is gone, oh, da grill is gone
It’s not hea no mo, da grill is gone.

Wizard’s Words

Wizard’s Words

When you find the Horn of Feguela,
play the two tenor tones in tune,
and the mountains will move to reveal
where the gods were born.
There are several forgeries of the horn,
and only the original will move
the mountains the proper way.
The fakes will play the wrong sounds
and then the gates of hell will be exposed
releasing more death and destruction.
I have heard the Wild Women of the East
have a horn, and they will reveal it for a price.
For some mortals the price is too much,
and they never return.
Your journey to find the beginning of us
could be the end of us.

Fences

Fences

 

Fences are made to keep people in.
and fences are made to keep people out
when the differences of the two groups
is so bad that their security is in doubt.

Fences are made so people don’t get out
and fences are made so people don’t get in.
The fences can, in time, be cleared away,
and only then the two groups’ healing begins.

Cinderella Syndrome

Cinderella Syndrome

Wishes can come true.
It can happen to you,
But be careful what your wish for.
Cinderella wanted to go to the ball
instead of cleaning and doing chores.
She got her wish and met her prince,
But a time was set to leave the floor.
For every big change, a condition is
created for anything to last.
Don’t follow the new rules and
you will be condemned to the past.
Risk-takers do much to level the odds,
and will work to make wishes
come true if the shoe fits.

Shaping clouds

 Shaping clouds

 

I wish I would build a staircase to the sky
and shape the clouds as they rolled by.
I wish I could swim like the fishes in the sea
and stay under water they way they breathe.
I wish people would respect and care for each
other and there would be no hate forever.
My wishes are my dreams, but I look out the
window and see now they are not the reality.
One side has more power, more men and better
guns, but did this side have a victory won?
