Far Away

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Chugalug

Editor’s Note: The location of this place is in my imagination, but it could have been inspired by a business in the basement of a cluster of stores frequented by students adjacent to the Ball State University campus in Muncie, Indiana called “The Village.”

The Chugalug

Come on down to The Chugalug,
and get a cold mug of beer.
Come on down to The Chugalug,
where your friends are near.
The Chugalug, The Chugalug,
It’s easy to find the time to
come on down to The Chugalug,

We welcome all who come past
our doors, both  the regulars and
those who are passing through.
We take pride in our service, food
And our selection of fresh beers.
We do it night after night for you.
This is a bar and grill where you can
Really have a lot of fun with all
The people you meet.
We have room for all who want to
come in, so come on down and
take your seat.

Come on down to The Chugalug,
and get a cold mug of beer.
Come on down to The Chugalug,
where your friends are near.
The Chugalug, The Chugalug,
It’s easy to find the time to
come on down to The Chugalug,

We have a full juke box, and a
Place where you can dance.
A local band rocks the house
Friday and Saturday night, a
Chance to find romance.
We have pizzas, cheeseburgers
and our famous fried chicken
served  all night long.
Our food has a way of making
everyone become friends
And  somehow get along.

Come on down to The Chugalug,
and get a cold mug of beer.
Come on down to The Chugalug,
where your friends are near.
The Chugalug, The Chugalug,
It’s easy to find the time to
come on down to The Chugalug,

I’m Back

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

I’m Back

I’m back, again,
for the last time.
I want to be in your arms,
and be taken by your charms.

I’m back, again,
I’ve seen the light.
I’m not the guy that I used to be.
I’ve changed; I’m a brand-new me.

I’m back, again,
problems are in the past.
I’ve promised to make a new start.
You’re the owner of this lonely heart.

I’m back, again,
just like I was before.
I want my feelings for you to show.
This is my way of letting you know

I’m back.

Phreee

Phreee

All I need is either on my back or in this old army duffel bag.
I go where I want to go any time. I’m phreee.
Sometimes the food I get and where I sleep depends on other people’s charity.
If the weather decides to rain, sometimes I feel the drops on me.
When It starts to snow, there are places I go I know I can stay warm.
I have old boots for shoes, and my feet tell me how the day will end.
Peace is my friend, and being phreee is part of my soul.

Back to Today

Back to Today

Yesterdays have seen better days
And now I need to find a way
To get myself back to today.
I knew what to do,
And who I was before,
But the more I try,
I’m not so sure.
Time has a way of slipping
Away before my eyes.
My smile is a thin disguise
Of who I really am inside.
