Make a Sand Castle

What can you do now to help
bring peace to this world?
You can smile a while, instead of frown.
That brings people down.
Become part of the community instead
of a couch potato watching
those events on TV.
When someone truly needs help, give
them a hand, and see where they land.
From one small seed the gift will grow,
and others will learn how much love will show
even more how much better this place can be.
There will be those who will attack this philosophy,
but killing, violence and hatred only brings death,
destruction and loss of personal property.
Donation requests come in the mail daily,
and you say you don’t have enough money,
since you have enough just to survive
or get through the week.
Investigate before you invest in a charity,
since giving to all good ones is an impossibility.
Know that the answer to an argument is
not a bullet from a gun, and after the
embers of anger cool down, the damage
cannot be undone. Holes are left the walls
of people’s lives who are shattered,
who then suffer in the present.
People are not that much different,
though some see separate colors or gender.
The world would be much better if all
lives matter and we could get along.
Drugs, legal or illegal, are not an
escape from reality, and their abuse spreads
like a cancer to bring other problems
in this world, your community.
What can you do now to help
bring peace to this world?
Start with people you know, your friends
or your family. Be aware, care,
And take on some extra responsibility.
Take one day, one moment of sharing,
one step at a time, and the mountains of
obstacles can be reduced to stones
washed by the Sea of Tranquility into mere
sand pebbles on a beach.
Then it’s to celebrate and make a sand castle.

Me and My Shadow

Me and My Shadow

Me and my shadow,
It goes wherever I go,
but only in the light.
It changes all the time.
It sleeps with me in the night.
In the morning, I
see my friend again,
and my day begins.

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.

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.

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.

Construction Memo

Construction Memo

Do not attempt to straighten out any
bent nails used with projects under
construction.  Even though we are a
not-for-profit agency and attempts to
save money in most situations is sincerely
appreciated, it is of no use to attempt
to straighten out any bent nails, new  or
old,  since they will never be restored to
their original condition despite any
amount of force applied to the metal.
They will always bend at their weakest
point, the place at which they were first
bent, rendering them useless to us.
We have funds to purchase enough nails,
if they are used to constructions standards
and building codes, for our human projects.

It’s Tuesday

It’s Tuesday, and it seems like
Saturday is so far way.
I’m glad I’m not here to stay,
because I’d rather be on my
way home to be next to you.
There are those who expect
results of my job that I do.

You’re my center, my North,
And the limit, my South, too.
And you’re my East and West.
The sun rises and sets with you.

Passport 

Your passport to the past will always last,
And you can look back to see if
You were right or wrong, too short or too long,
or too weak or too strong.
A passport to the future will soon expire
Because today will soon be gone, and
Decisions made now will affect who
And what you will be tomorrow.

Aacchoo!

Excuse me. I usually sneeze in three’s.
No, it’s not an allergy, except for the
Joke I’m allergic to hard work.
My throat started getting sore last
Wednesday, and this past weekend
The crazy winter cold caught up
With me, so for Monday morning
I’m as good as good can be.
When you asked how I was,
I wasn’t lying when I replied ,“Fine.”
At least I don’t like I was dying,
And I can easily breathe now.
I got up, got all clean and shaved,
Hair washed and teeth brushed.
My suit matches and is to code.
Some, my wife, think I should stay home,
But if I don’t work, I don’t get paid,
And there’s always something else
That needed to be finished yesterday.
Armed with more medicine and tissues.
I will make it through the day.

Who is Elias Tobias? Go to his biography that is also in Spanish.

Old-Fashioned Love

Old-Fashioned Love

Hey, I know things between us aren’t just right,
Ever since we had our last little fight.
But I want you to know that I’ve see the light,
And I know our future’s gonna be bright.
I’d like to show you some old-fashion love tonight.
Give me one more chance, and I know now
Our love for each other will be outta sight.
