          Well, I've decided to put my poetry here as well. It is for a very broad audience, so hopefully you will understand. The book of Job is often quite dark and Solomon's Song of Songs is at times quite racey for those who understand what is being said. Hopefully, I will not exceed the Bible in either context, but I am willing to accept that some of my work may be taken down as inappropriate for this forum. For those of you who wish to have non-Christians read my stuff and maybe pique their curiousity, just be sure to tell them that this is a Christian Community, and they shouldn't consider your gesture to be misleading.

    Not a Poem -- Yet



    Seek the Truth,
    Live the Truth,
    Be the Truth,
         All this in Love.

    Be considerate of others, treating them as better than yourself, even though they are not. Do it for the following reason:  God, in Christ Jesus, though better than us, does not cling to that but instead chooses to put our needs ahead of what he could rightfully claim, out of sincere Love for Us. This is our example – a life dedicated to Love in Truth.

    Truth causes pain at times, but do not be deluded. Any pain that comes from Truth is ultimately for good alone. There is no evil in Truth, only evil in the hearts that choose how to express it or withhold it.

    This is the Ethos of being a Christian.

    The Oath



    Centurion to Centurion
    The Oath is passed
    No false solemnity to denigrate
    Cutting deep with meaning

    Tradition, yes, but not of such import
    As to diminish
    Honor
                or
    Loyalty
                or
    Duty

    The words unspoken, the most deep of worth
    Desiring
    Liberty
                and
    Justice

    A sacrifice made of the same for others

    The watch is long
    The burden – grueling
    But the King is returning
    No one knows when

    “Stand Alert, Soldier!”
    “Hold Your Post!”

    For that is really
    Your Oath

    The Tears of God



    I have touched the Tears of God

    Streaming down the face of those who feel His Sorrow

    Sorrow for the Children

    The Children of God

    Like lost sheep, not yet fully knowing

    The Voice of the Shepherd

    Calling to them

    Words of Comfort

    Words of Chastisement

    Words of Guidance

    Words of Encouragement

    All in all:  The Word

    A Voice unheeded

    In Sorrow

    God's Fingers



    Dear Lord, Lay you hand on me,

    Not so heavy, that I cannot bear.

    Lay your hand on me, and let me see,

    The loving way you smooth my hair.


    Hands so strong, I cannot resist,

    And a touch so gentle, like the morning mist.

    Guide me, teach me, poke me, prode me,

    Tickle me and throw me, laughing with glee.
