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.

Master Jokemaker

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Paul Abernathy

Master Jokemaker

God, with His infinite wisdom, power, and
glory, surely has a sense of humor.
A being can’t be serious and creative
all the time without stopping to smile.
Indeed, there are moments in His space
that he can enjoy the fruits of His labor
here on earth with a good laugh.
Why else would he pose riddles as the Master
Jokemaker for us to solve so seriously?

Far Away

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

Far Away

Real love was far away,
but I see it now in your eyes,
and I feel it in my heart,
and I taste it with my lips
as you hold me close.
After the night is day, I
know you’ll be staying,
even when you’re far away.

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.

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.

In the Heat of the Night

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Brian Kohut

In the Heat of the Night

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover.
You said I wasn’t what you expected as a lover.
Minute by minute, our moments were surprised
with emotions we found in the heat of the night.

I’m Going Back

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

I’m Going Back

I hear the morning train,
The only one on the track,
This will be my last ride
because I’m going back.

Back home where I belong,
back where I am free,
back where I can sing my songs.

I hear the whistle blowing,
and I hold on to my cowboy hat.
I need to look my best
because I’m going back,

Back home with all my friends.
back where I know I’m me,
back where I’ll be loved till the end.

I’m in love with you (but I don’t know why)

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Adrian Parker

I’m in love with you (but I don’t know why)

I’m in love…
I’m in love…
I’m in love with you, girl,
and I really don’t know why.
I can’t live…
I can’t live…
I can’t live without your touch,
My heart will break with a lie.
But I need…
But I need…
But I need you so much, girl.
Without you, I’d probably die.

They say trouble follows you around.
They say you’re the baddest apple in town.
But I accidentally fell in love with you.
Now my friends are saying I’m a fool.

I’m in love…
I’m in love…
I’m in love with you, girl,
and I really don’t know why.
I can’t live…
I can’t live…
I can’t live without your touch,
My heart will break with a lie.
But I need…
But I need…
But I need you so much, girl,
Without you, I’d probably die.

They say problems appear wherever you go.
They say you’re someone I shouldn’t know.
But I accidentally fell in love with you.
My emotions I have make me feel brand new.

I’m in love…
I’m in love…
I’m in love with you, girl,
and I really don’t know why.
I can’t live…
I can’t live…
I can’t live without your touch,
My heart will break with a lie.
But I need…
But I need…
But I need you so much, girl
Without you, I’d probably die.

For Sale

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Bill Kelso

For Sale

Years pass before a spring becomes a tree.
The sprawling roots tap into the ground deep.
By then the ivy clings to the bricks.
The growth covered the wall and red turns green.
Echoes of children’s cries and laughter fill
the now empty rooms and hallways of the house.
The kitchen cabinets are desolate and deserted
A corner hole in the floorboard evidences a mouse,
but even that rodents is gone, and the family, too.
The wind blows between the cracks in the glass,
but not many of the windows need to be repaired.
The real estate agent says this house has real class.
Should I resurrect the dead and enter the tomb?
Can I somehow make this place come alive?
I get a feeling that no matter how many families
stay here, the house, itself, seems to survive.
