Naked, but not afraid

Naked, but not afraid

Lord, before you I am naked, but not afraid.
Even with my wealth of clothes, you see what
is in my heart and in my soul and in my mind.
Any clothes I wear were gained through your grace,
and my gifts to others are your gifts through me.
Jesus, on the cross, was naked, but not afraid,
and died, only to rise again to be by your side.
I pray that you will keep me alive to tomorrow.

A Real Rock and Roll Love Song

A Real Rock and Roll Love Song

I would like to get to know you better,
but I really think I should go.
My short break is almost over, and I
need to get ready for another show.
I have a good feelng about you, and you
have changed me more than you know.
On stage, I sing my songs to the fans,
and I feel the heat from the lights.
On this tour, I sing the same songs
in a different city every night.
I like to be with the guys on the road,
and work hard to make things right.
But there is restless feeling in my heart,
a sense something needs to change.
In spite my musical talent or ability,
I know that thing won’t happen on stage.
It’s the time away from this place
I know that neeeds to be rearranged.
After what little time I had with you,
you may be the answer to my prayers.
I am surounded by those who need me,
but I need someone who really cares.
I put my feelings in these songs,
But some emotions are hard to share.
For some unexpected reason, these
feelings I have for you are strong.
So take these passes to the VIP
section; the concert won’t be long.
Listen to the words from my heart,
a real rock and roll love song.

The Addict

Editor’s Note: This poem is not written in defense of drug abuse, illegal drugs or actions taken by people under the influence of drugs. Instead, it is an attempt by this author to get in the place of an addict based on numerous media reports which seem to daily indicate a growing problem of drug abuse in this country.

The Addict

One day I was sick, very ill, and
the doctor prescribed potent pills.
I need them; couldn’t get my fill, and
I can’t get enough of them still.
They seem to take away my will.
I started stealing to pay the bills.
Then my gun was for me to kill those
who tried to stop me from my pills.

How were we in love?

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Bill Kelso

How were we in love?

My mind keeps playing tricks on me.
My thinking isn’t as good as it used to be.
It’s not just because I may be getting old.
The memories of you have gone cold.

The feeling of us in love has past me by,
and I wish I could remember why.
Since you’ve been gone, things aren’t the same.
I don’t know, but maybe I’m to blame.

Please tell me, how were we in love?
Did we laugh and have a good time?
Did we hold eachother’s hand and kiss?
When we were together, were we fine?
Please tell me, how were we in love?

After All These Years

After All These Years

It is nice to see you after all these years.
You were going your way, I was going mine,
But smiles we shared slowed our fears.
Now you have become a success, and I
Have done well enough for myself, too.
Stress of your changes don’t show,
And I see time has been good to you.
We both found people for a family,
And now each have several children,
But I wonder if there were moments
you wondered what could have been.
We needed each other back then,
And I feel like I need you now,
Even if it is to just remember what
My heart will let me allow after
All these years.

Burned Bagel

Burned Bagel

Burned my bagel in the toaster today,
but it was only black on the edges.
I was hungry and ate it anyway,
and my breakfast was salvaged.
I also had juice and hot tea,
and a serving of peach yogurt, too.
It was all good enough for me and
burnt bread won’t make my day blue.

Around and Around

 

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A real poem by Alexander Michael Dunbar, the 12th  member of the unofficial fraternity, Lambda Sigma Chi.

Around and Around

I need to get up and convince
myself tomorrow will be a better
day and that things can’t stay the
way they have been.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned
so far, there are always changes;
some for the good, some for bad,
some happy, some sad, but there
are always changes. This
old world keeps on turning around,
and around and around, and
sometimes I wish it would stop
long enough to get myself together.
I need to get up and convince
myself tomorrow will be a better day.

It

It

It is in perpetual
motion, never stopping,
always feeding from
its own energy, free
from the effects of
gravity with actions
reactions to actions
again in a state of
fluid viscosity.

It is me.

The Girl Next Door

Editor’s Note:  This subject is not original, and other poems or songs have been composed about it. This is my version of topic and is not intend to take the place of other copyrighted materials with the same or similar title.

The Girl Next Door

The girl next door was a friend of mine,
And our love for each other was hard to find.
I remember her face. Her smile was so kind.
I could hardly keep her off my mind, but
I was young then, and my love was blind.
Well I’m married now and I love my wife,
And have two children who love me, too;
But times I look at the kids growing up,
And my heart starts to feel a little blue
Because when I was young, I was in love
With the girl next door.

The girl next door was a friend of mine,
And our love for each other was hard to find.
I remember her face. Her smile was so kind.
I could hardly keep her off my mind, but
I was young then, and my love was blind.

We had just moved in, and I was 9 or 8,
I can’t remember now, but it was my fate.
She might have had curly blonde hair,
And we shared a squeaky backyard gate.
It was so long ago, I can’t think of her name,
But I loved her and she loved me the same.
I would be going her house to play games,
I was sad when the day we moved came,
Because when I was young, I was in love
With the girl next door.

The girl next door was a friend of mine,
And our love for each other was hard to find.
I remember her face. Her smile was so kind.
I could hardly keep her off my mind, but
I was young then, and my love was blind.

I didn’t want to leave, but Dad had to go,
I can’t really remember why, though.
I never saw her again as I grew up,
But the memories of her are so bold.
There have been other girls since then,
But the first one is the only one when
I could say I really had a girlfriend.
I didn’t want the good times to end
Because when I was young, I was in love
With the girl next door.

The girl next door was a friend of mine,
And our love for each other was hard to find.
I remember her face. Her smile was so kind.
I could hardly keep her off my mind, but
I was young then, and my love was blind.

My baby girl is cute and turning 10.
She says at school she has a boyfriend.
As a dad, I’m not sure how this will end,
Because when I was young, I was in love
With the girl next door.

The girl next door was a friend of mine,
And our love for each other was hard to find.
I remember her face. Her smile was so kind.
I could hardly keep her off my mind, but
I was young then, and my love was blind.
