Cast Your Light

We are made of energy

Formed by the Master Creator

The ancient I AM

The only living God

He has given us freedom of will

To choose how we impact

The space we occupy

And our choices

Can impact the universe

We have the power to

Direct, mold, bend

Send and receive energy

This power exists

Whether we understand it

Or not

Choose to try and understand it

Draw closer to God

Accept Christ

Follow His example

Learn how to cast your light

Toss out bright stars

From the basket

Of abundant energy

Flowing out of your soul

Release Me

Somewhere there is a key

To the rusty heart

Beating in me

If someone finds it

The question is

Will it still fit

Maybe it’s not really lost

But still held in the hand

Of the one whom I loved most

Perhaps one day

He will return

With promises to stay

Will rust and decay

Built up over time

Block the lock, keep him away

Or will a stranger

Take a risk

Ignore the danger

Steal the key

That’s wasting away

Force the lock

And release me

Peek-A-Boo

Peek-a-boo

I see you

Trying to get a glimpse of me

You’re filled with curiosity

My face is seldom seen

In photos or on the big screen

Am I beautiful or homely

In a relationship or lonely

Do I work more or play

On any given day

It’s not that simple

But I will offer an example

I am an eclectic mix

Can be an exotic fix

I believe in common sense

And happenstance

Work comes first

Then I play with a burst

You’ll seldom see me in a crowd

You might see me in a cloud

Flying high above the earth

Knowing well my full worth

Relationships are not for me

Lonely…no that’s not me

Unhindered by commitment

I enjoy the merriment

But don’t try to fence me in

That’s a challenge you won’t win

Just accept me as I am

And don’t ask me to make plans

Waterfalls Renew

Good decisions

Some bad

Bad choices

Teach lessons

Lessons learned

Bring wisdom

Wisdom hides

Evasive, elusive

Elusive dreams

Come alive

Alive, flowing

Like waterfalls

Waterfalls renew

Positive energy

Energy exists

In everything

Everything impacts

Our lives

Lives change

For good

Good decisions

Some bad

Make you

Pirates We Be

Come sail with me

Pirates we be

Riding the high sea

Looking for treasure

The kind that can’t be measured

It lurks in the invisible mist

On the winds of imagination

It will grant our every wish

Whatever our minds can conjure

If our hearts can endure

It’s a treasure for sure

Riding the high sea

Pirates we be

Come sail with me

Small Town Talk

Small-town talk

Has a way of

Getting back around

To the person

Who has been being

Talked about

Your words made it all the way

From SW Florida to Texas

I heard what you said

I know what you did

So I’m sending you

This friendly little message

You better hope Texas

Remains my position

Because

If I come back home to Florida

I’m coming back

As your competition
