A poem by Brother Adrian Parker

New Visions

Let’s take time to think what we’ve been through.
There have been changes in me and in you,
Things will be different in what we say and do.
Outside we look the same, but inside we are new.

Once a mind is stretched, it’s not ever the same.
Yearning eyes see things moving on a new plane.
Hands open different doors with everything to gain.
We have become better people with our old names.

Old Friends

Old Friends

A pair of names, circled with a heart, are
etched permanently on the school desk,
indelibly recorded with layers of ink…
another sits on the signs of the past.
Skirts flirted once, and eyes rolled
around the room searching for love,
even though feelings were young…
another looks for a future “old friend.”

Back to Texas

Back to Texas

I want to go back to Texas,
That’s where I know I belong.
I’ve been north, east and west.
I think I’ve been away too long.
The feeling to come home back
To you has been growing strong,
But I’m a different person now
After the years I’ve been gone.
I know leaving you back then was
one of many things I’ve done wrong.
My feelings for you are like lyrics
To some old Mexican love song.
Reasons not to care for me are real,
You have your own life going on.
I want to go back to Texas,
That’s where I know I belong.
No matter where I have roamed,
You were in my heart all along.

Eye to Eye

Editor’s Note: I tried to write something for Valentine’s Day this year, and this is a start of something.

Eye to Eye

repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
I thought I was the only one you called your man,
working every day to carry out a plan, and
I try real hard to make you happy as I can,
but this is hard for me to really understand.
I want to do more than just hold your hand.

(repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
I heard from friends you were out with another guy,
and then you denied it with what some call a lie.
You know I will love you until the day I die,
but all I want to know is why, why, why?
I want us to keep our love stay eye to eye.

(repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
On this very special Valentine’s Day,
I have a special message I want to convey,
even though it’s cloudy and skies are gray.
I would like you know I want you to stay,
even though it’s hard to believe what you say.

The Universal Man

The Universal Man

What this world needs is what
some people call a universal man,
and this unique personality
has a special ability to understand
when and how to implement
what some call a master plan.

This universal man uses the
ultimate in compassion
with the strength of steel
in unbounded determination
to become an important leader
instilled with inspiration.

Once the universal man has
the support for his vision
be begins to mount memories
which will create a tradition
while the forces he commands
completes each of their missions.

What this world needs is what
some people call a universal man,
and this unique personality
has a special ability to understand
when and how to implement
what some call a master plan.

The Edge

The Edge

A swift sword helps create an empire,
soiled by the blood of those who rise against it.
The razor-sharp edge keeps people in line,
but over time the metal which supports the edge
loses its strength, and can no longer be trusted.
The edge can get dull, and be easily rusted.
The unity is threatened when the blade can break,
but a new, and more dangerous weapon can
be forged from the mold of the master sword,
and the harmony is restored among the nations
who have no hate or strife among the people,
except for ruling power which controls them.
The sword of the new generation tries to
keep the dynasty alive, but it really cuts down
every chance of successful reign since the
new blades dull even faster than before.
Violence will erupt, and the revolution begins.

Reason to Dream

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Reason To Dream

Some say dreams are for those who sleep,
but when they wake up to the morning, the
thoughts created in the night are forgotten.

I say dreams are for those who have a need
to live for more than just another day, and
they have a reason to look forward to tomorrow.

Pocket your dreams

Pocket your dreams

Pocket your dreams.
Then they are within reach of your hands.
You can have a chance to get a hold of
your dreams when the opportunity knocks.

If you put your dreams on cluttered shelves
in the closet of your mind or the wandering
the hallways of your heart, the time to
use your dreams may be gone before you find them.

Like loose change, the dreams my fall out of
your pocket, but that is the chance you
take for being ready to live.

Love’s Only a Game

A poem by Brother Levi Jacobs

Love’s Only a Game

I’ll leave it all up to you.
I’ll do what you say.
You make the decision.
It’s better that way.
We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

I’ll leave it all up to you.
I would like you to stay.
I could forgive you.
We can start over today.

We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

I’ll leave it all up to you.
We were one of a kind.
Feelings have gone now,
You need to draw the line.

We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

A Woman Falling in Love

A Woman Falling in Love

There’s a quickness in her step.
She knows what she wants to do,
And where she wants to go.
When his name is mentioned,
You can see her face glow.
She is a woman falling in love.

There is a sudden smile,
A silent sparkle in her eyes,
Then a happy grin on her face.
There’s a certain look about her
As they meet at a certain place.
She is a woman falling in love.

She changes her style of clothes,
And does something new to her
Hair In anticipation of lovely gifts.
Mere presence and conversation
With man she loves gives her a lift.
She is a woman falling in love.

She lives for the moments that
Become her memories of the past,
And plans all part of the game.
If the affair should ever fall apart,
She’d be broken-hearted just the same.
She is a woman falling in love.
