I Like to Measure

Published by under Daily Christian Living

I like to measure…

-—————————I like to measure I like to measure

It seems to me,

That I like to measure,

But of all this could be,

Its not a treasure,

Its like the separation,

Between church and state,

The malformation,

Of love and hate,

The model and make,

Of your car,

How many miles on mine,

Has it been driven too far,

The numerical increments,

When I step on the scale,

Oh my god did you see that,

Candies on sale,

I don’t know how to escape,

This inexplicable race,

To see the man in the mirror,

More than the face ,

So I’ve got to step over,

Where the fewest do trod,

To win I surrender,

To that which is God

-———————-Spaghetti Spaghetti 

Whole wheat spaghetti,

Doesn’t sound very good ,

Its color is dark brown,

Like it’s made out of wood,

Oh but I made a sauce,

I started with Ragu,

Then added mushrooms and garlic,

Jalapenos and pork too,

The pasta was al dente,

that’s the way I like it,

And of course there was plenty,

I just couldn’t fight it,

But then I came to the last bite,

And they ego said go,

But I surrendered to something outside,

And was able to say no, 

So with a flick of my fork, 

Off into the waste can,

I said no to my programming,

And the obesity of man

-———————–-Religion Religion 

I cried the first time in church,

I saw my daughter raise her hands,

I knew she found religion,

She found the God of man,

No longer in bugs and birds ,

Nor the bees or breeze,

They taught her that she was separate,

And must worship on her knees,

This was the same lesson,

I had been taught as a child,

But against it I had rebelled,

And followed the call of the wild,

Only when I was broken,

Would you ever hear me say,

God I need your help,

Rescue me this day,

And this would be the beginning,

The beginning of the end,

No longer what I fear him,

Because now he is my friend

-———————–-Alcoholism Alcoholism 

I believe I was an alcoholic,

From the first time I drank,

I couldn’t get enough of that mystery tonic,

Inside my empty tank,

I have heard others,

Give many reasons,

They drank once with impunity,

But now  have changed their seasons,

At first they were a cucumber,

But now they’ve turned a pickle,

Many a nights drunken slumber,

Have made of them quite fickle,

A man said he caught alcoholism,

Off of dirty bar stool,

This is either quite a schism,

Or he was a old fool,

But today I have recovered,

From a seemingly hopeless state of body and mind,

And in the middle of all of that I discovered,

A God that is much too kind

A Brand New Life

Published by under Daily Christian Living

A brand new life…


A brand new life,

Has been given to me,

A brand new life,

I have been set free,

No longer the prisoner,

Of selfish self centeredness,

Now I am a envisioner,

Of personal awareness,

The truth has been spoken,

To folks of my kind,

A gentle yet vivid truth,

To reorganize the mind,

A one where giving,

Is better than to receive,

Is more than just a saying,

it’s something to believe,

it’s all right already,

That is always true,

That breeze is as fresh,

As the sky is blue,

So thank you this day,

For all that you done ,

The battle to be fought,

My God has already won

Determination of Health

Published by under Daily Christian Living

Determination of health…

-—————————————–-Determination of health Determination of health 

Is there a determination wealth,

That is based on a determination of health,

The decision remains to be seen,

Can a paraplegic not soar,

Because he is poor,

That sounds absolutely mean ,

True wealth of course, comes from a different source,

One that can only be felt,

Some try to say,

That there’s only one way,

When in front of God you have knelt,

But the bugs and the bees,

The birds and the trees,

And the gentle caress of the wind,

Lets me know for sure,

there’s nothing so pure,

As having God as a friend

So What Do I Write

Published by under Daily Christian Living

So what do I write…

-—————————-So what do I write So what do I write

So what do I write,

In the subject line,

that’s the box where I am supposed to name,

My poem and rhyme,

today’s composition, 

Of a subject of my choice,

I put words together,

Can you hear my voice,

What will be the rhythm,

And cadence or banter,

Will it flow smoothly,

Or be like a chanter,

So I let the nouns flow,

And verbs where they may,

Honestly the truth of the matter,

Is I haven’t much to say

This Morning I Had a Dilemma

Published by under Daily Christian Living

This morning I had a dilemma…

-———————————————–-This morning I had a dilemma This morning I had a dilemma 

This morning I had a dilemma,

Whether or not to buy, 

Yesterday’s’ poem dealt with varmints,

And wanting not to try,

But this morning came a discussion,

With friends where friends abide,

I got much needed consultation,

And a story about a box of tide,

So I decided not to decide,

And trust what is always there,

In step 3 I made the decision,

To turn my life over to the care,

The next thing I knew ,

Somebody handed me 20 bucks,

Yes just out of the blue,

He said I’d like to sponsor your ducks,

So then I knew for certain,

Without me a decision had been made,

So I drove to the lady with the Ducks,

For the price had already been paid

The Things I Try to Control

Published by under Daily Christian Living

The things I try to control…

-——————————————-chickens The things I try to control 

There are a number of things,

Things I try to control,

When and where I’ll get angry,

And the destination of my soul,

One thing that is for certain,

No matter who may preach,

Though control is my preoccupation,

it’s definitely out of my reach,

Something as simple as my chickens,

And trying to protect them from the stray critter,

A hen sitting on a clutch of eggs,

I was hoping for a litter,

There must have been a creature of the night,

Looking for some dinner,

Both control and protect as I might ,

That creature was the winner,

So tonight as I write this poem,

Resting in front of my fan,

I know there is a due process,

But it’s not the plan of man

Agree to Disagree

Published by under Daily Christian Living

Agree to disagree…

-——————————--Agree to disagree Agree to disagree 

Could we still find harmony,

If we were to agree to disagree,

Would a  difference of opinion be so terrible,

If that is what ended up between you and me,

I don’t have to prove you wrong,

Or need to prove me right,

Because our views are so strong ,

Where all we do is fight,

I’m willing to bet there’s a different way,

Where neither of us is wrong,

So crank up the band and warm up your voice,

it’s time to sing a different song
