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?

I want to be a witness

I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),

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.

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.

Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

Within the folds of my brain,
thousands of bits of ideas rapidly race
simultaneously in random directions playing
hide and seek from electronic file keepers, whose
job it is to tame concepts long enough to put
them into memory cells so complete ideas
can be expressed by some
medium externally.

The problem is my
body feels it’s time for bed, and I need my sleep.
Instead of counting sheep, I just rest,
hoping my thoughts would
get their act
together and quit
playing games.

If You Think You Are Country

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Christopher Benedict

If You Think You Are Country

If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
You can listen to the different
styles of songs on the radio.
And you can sing the words
when you are alone at home.
If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
It’s like a religious experience.
You have to feel it in your soul.

If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
You can dance the two step,
or you can just move real slow.
You can wear jeans and such,
but that can be just for show.
If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
It’s like a religious experience.
You have to feel it in your soul.

If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
Name the hits of Hank Williams
and George Jones in a row.
Sometime in your life the Grand
Ole Opry is the place to go.
If you think you are country,
well how do you really know?
It’s like a religious experience.
You have to feel it in your soul.

End of a Movie

End of a Movie

I’m on my horse, on the run,
got to get to Kansas or Missouri.
Don’t say I was here, ’cause I
got to get there in a hurry.
There’s this man called the law,
and he doesn’t believe I’m
innocent of what I just saw.
Being free can only bring hope
he doesn’t catch up with me
and put me at the end of a rope.
At least you know I’m alive,
but just go back to your plow.
I love you, and need you, but,
Mother, I have to go now.

Gears of Emotion

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

Gears of Emotion

Action and reaction,
the two gears of emotion
intertwine and engage, and
make the wheel of life turn.

Action is an advance or attack
which authority is challenged,
and feelings of defiance burn.

Reaction is a response of defense
where the boss bites back, but
professionalism has be learned.

When the wheel turns smoothly,
the gears work together, quickly.
efficiently, and problems are solved.
When the wheel stops, the gears are
locked in a battle for control. Both
gears are needed for the wheel to roll.

Lane violation

Lane violation

So, you think you are
Queen of the Road, and
can go wherever you want.
You never can go slow.

But if you stay on your side
of that yellow line,
I’ll stay on mine.
You can go your way,
and, Babe, I’ll be fine.
We don’t need any lane violations
on the Highway of Love.

When we cross the mark,
one of us always gets hurt.
Bodies connect and collide,
and we end up in the dirt.

But if you stay on your side
of that yellow line,
I’ll stay on mine.
You can go your way,
and, Babe, I’ll be fine.
We don’t need any lane violations
on the Highway of Love.
