Mired Down In Strife

*image source: photobucket.com

In the pain of life
when mired down with strife

The strength we may find
is not that of mind

But a Spiritual one rather
given us by the Father

If to Him we pray
“help me through this day”

He is ever faithful to
lend His strength to you

and faith in Him renew!

In Solitude – Short Story Slam Week 19

It is in solitude
I come here to pray

“Lord, give me the fortitude
to hold on another day!”

From Him I beg for
the strength to carry on

When the one I did adore
from my life is gone

Everything to him I gave
but he ‘s left me behind

And now only God can save
what is left of my mind

When it’s our love we give
and they throw it away

 Often lost is will to live
steeped in the pain of they

“So, dear Lord, give it back
that I might clearly see

‘Twas not because of my lack
that they have now left me

Give me one who loves me more
with passion’s fire like the sun

On the road ahead before
my life is said and done!”

For all of my suffering friends,
you know who you are,
and I love you each and every one! 


Rainy Days – Short Story Slam Week 18

On those umbrella rainy days

my good mood with me stays

If I just close my eyes

and there a fantasy I devise

When my umbrella sprouts some wings

 as I fly above all things

Up there in the sky floating

while the ground rain is soaking

I drop flowers from the air

a little sunshine just to share

And up there all the while

on my face a great big smile!

A Spot Of Tea

Image Credit: Chance of Sunshine: Cinderella On Her Tea Break
Cinderella took a break
to have a spot of tea
When a little birdie spake
as normal as can be
“I was just flying along
and spotted you down here
Could you sing me a song
if you’d be so dear?”
Which came as quite a shock
to Cinderella at the time
No that the bird did talk
but instead how he did rhyme
“I don’t want to seem dense
or anything of the such
Yet it doesn’t make any sense
to me all that much
Why would a song bird
want for me to sing
When a melody should be heard
in the tune you’re warbling?”
“Alas because I have no choice
for there’s a problem you see
I recently have lost my voice
and no warble’s left in me!”
As the birdie began to cry
Cinderella’s heart was broken
She said she’d give a try
then realized that he had spoken
“Now just wait one minute,
what’s this game you play?
If you’ve no voice in it
how did those words you say?”
Birdie then hung his head
and shook it to and fro
“Well the truth is,” he said,
“you won’t believe me I know!
But a wicked old witch has
cast a spell on me
And so a bonnie lass
must sing to set me free!”
“Oh you silly little thing
why didn’t you just say so
Of course for you I’ll sing
and back to yourself you’ll go!”
As Cinderella sang strong and clear
birdie became a prince no less
Who then said, “Marry me dear!”
 now Cinderella is his princess!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Rain, rain, go away
I wanna enjoy my day

It has rained for so long
feel like a duck quacking along

I’m ready for the sun’s glow
and the beauty of a rainbow

It has been so very dreary
my sinus’ run, eyes are bleary

Wish the rain turned to snow
watching it glisten from sun’s glow

My mood is like the rain
that pours down on my windowpane

Why downcast oh my soul?
Should be happy on a whole

Since the pattering does go on
my good spirits haven’t all gone

So rain, rain go away
won’t let you ruin another day!
