You Are With Me Still!

  • You are with me still.
    • Out of sight, hearing, and smell,
    • And Yet,
    • You are with me still.
  • I close my eyes,
    • And you are there,
    • Envisioned like the angel you are.
    • The breeze whispering, whispering to me.
    • And carrying your perfume like sweet lilacs to me.
    • Yes! You are with me still.
  • I open my mind,
    • And all the memories we have created.
    • Come fresh to my thoughts.
    • I yearn to create new memories
    • With you and for you.
    • Yes! Oh yes. You are with me still.

I Am But A Man!

  • I am but a man.
    • Just a man, human still.
      • I live and breathe.
      • I do good and bad.
      • Sometimes one more,
        • Than the other.
  • For after all I am, but a man.
    • On the average, not the mean.
    • The good I do out weighs the bad,
      • But, then there are those days.
  • For after all I am, but a man.
    • There are those days, glorious days.
    • Or so I have been told,
    • Of grand forgiveness and absolution.
  • For after all I am but a man.

  • This was written reflecting on a particularly bad day I had.  It was putting Humpty Dumpty,(me) back together again.   I was imperfect, but  not all bad.   Not unforgivable, just imperfect.  Yet, there was forgiveness and better days.

Just inform Me, Please!

  • Inform me. I do not wish to be convinced,
    • Manipulated, advertised, or coerced.
  • Inform me, please!  Anymore treads on
    • My rights to decide freely independently.
  • Today the world surrounds me
    • With those who wish me to their bidding.
  • Buy this!  Buy that!
    • Do this, not that!
  • I am deluged with mail, television,
    • Telephone, friends and even foes.
  • I yearn for freedom
    • From these parasites.
  • Yes, parasites, they live on the carcasses
    • Of people previously convinced,
    • Manipulated or coerced.
  • Parasites have taken away,
    • The freedom to decide,
    • Based upon unbiased information.
  • “It is; Do it now immediately,
    • Urgently, the last chance;”
  • This is the din and cacophony,
    • I hear as I turn my back,
  • To walk away smiling still.
    • Just inform me.. Please………

  • This tidbit is a follow-on from Crusaders.    I was fed up with biased, misleading, out-right-lies, that I was being bombarded with during the election.  It did not matter what side you of an issue you were on you were the target audience of the opposing viewpoint.     I just want to have accurate unbiased information on an issue to make a good decision. 

Crusaders Are With Us Still!

Crusaders

  • Crusaders, we have them still.
    • They don their armor.
  • Raise their multi-colored flags and banners,
    • Pitch their tents.
  • Crusaders pursue their enemy,
    • With wild abandon.
  • Marching around,
    • The enemies encampment.
  • Shouting  and threatening the enemy,
    • Raising their own courage.
  • Ah yes.  We have crusaders still.
    • Their banners read:  Save the trees.
  • Old causes, new causes,  everlasting causes.
    • Free Choice;  Abortion Kills; Health Care;
  • The list is long and,
    • Ever changing.
  • The world is changed,
    • By their actions.
  • Yet, it stays the same.
    • Crusaders, we have them still.
  • Crusaders are amongst the living,
    • Not the dead.
  • Their armor is intellect, free speech,
    • And a last resort civil disobedience.
  • They intensely live the crusade of the day,
    • Taking it to heart and mind.
  • Every waking moment moving
    • The movement forward toward their goal.
  • The one day, quite unexpectedly
    • They move on.
  • The next crusade. 
    • The next march waving the banner.
  • Addicted to the emotion of “doing”
    • Yes, doing, but always “doing right.
  • Yes, we have crusaders still – defeated,
    • Yet, undefeated.  They march every onward
  • To convince one and all
    • Theirs is the right one, right thing, right way.
  • Changing their world
    • And changing our world.
  • Crusaders, A great help.
    • Crusaders, A great pain.
  • Crusaders, Society’s push forward.
    • Crusaders. Society’s push backward.
  • Crusaders will be with us
    • Today and all our tomorrows.

  • As long as there is oppression we will have crusaders attempting to eliminate a specific oppression.   Yet, some issues have created crusaders for and against them..  Thus, the undecided is subjected to the cacophony or unwanted clamor of the war of crusaders.
