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.

The ends of a gun

The ends of a gun

Is there a right end of a gun,
or just a wrong end?
Which side is which?
The answers seem obvious.
No matter what they
are used for – crimes,
terrorism, entertainment or fun-
the damage – physical, mental,
or psychological – can be done.
Guilty feelings can kill as much
as a bullet, and emotions can tear a
heart into pieces, too.

The business is from a beeper,
and a call takes you away
to a place where the deal is down.
And a gun is for protection.
How quick are your reactions?
It is important or B A N G! you
can be killed, and fill a hole in
the ground.
And even a bungled burglary
can end in an accidental tragedy.
Is there a right end of a gun,
or just a wrong end?
Which side is which?
The answers seem obvious.

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.

I’m Only Scared (of Losing You)

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

I’m Only Scared (of Losing You)

It’s not that I’m afraid to die;
I’m only scared of losing you.
Your love has remained
despite what we’ve been through.
Without me as a part of your life,
I don’t know what you would do.
I’ve always thought of us as one,
though, in reality, we’re two.
It’s not that I’m afraid to die;
I’m only scared of losing you.

Easy Rider

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Rufus McDougal

Easy Rider

grease, raw power, and freedom
wheels and women
rubber rolls on the road…
the sun heats the hearts and souls
of those who love to live life.

machines, beer cans and tattoos
family of sorts
rock and roll moves us…
the Harley’s roar and worn leather are
exchanged for perfume and lace.

kiss of love, fights and muscles
strong words and force
only the smart stay alive…
money is to be spent on the pleasures
of life before the road stops at last.

When You’re Gone

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

The newest member of LSC, Antonio “Tony” Alejandro Martin Gonzales, got his weekend band together, and used his lyrics for this song he performed recently.

When You’re Gone

When you’re gone, when you’re gone,
When you’re gone, when you’re gone,
Things don’t seem the same, and
My mind plays this silly game.
I say your name when I’m in bed,
And I hear your sweet voice
softly say “wakeup sleepy head.”
But it’s really the noise coming
From the alarm clock radio.
It’s then I realize I need to go
To get ready for another day.
I really wish I could stay
And wish I could talk to you,
But you’re not really here.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone,
Things don’t seem the same.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
I first saw you in my dreams,
And I could draw you it seemed.
Then I saw you at the restaurant
And you were with a friend.
You were the one I wanted.
I didn’t even know your name,
But my life wasn’t the same.
I’ve got to know you better,
And spent some time together,
But there are times you leave.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
I first saw you in my dreams.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.

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

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),

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.
