Speeding Through Green Lights

Speeding through green lights
Welcoming the rites of Spring
A warm day to rise & smile
Walk softly & listen to the birds sing
A fiddle & bagpipes call out
Traits of hope & smiles in the air
Release the frustration of Winter
Be free; dance out in your underwear
Feel the heat of the morning sun
Pour yourself an early glass of wine
Stretch out with a wink for me
Bare skin kissed by the glorious sunshine

I’m Doing My Best

I’m doing my best, can’t you see
Amidst the horrors of modern day
The ghost stories rising in the mind
The times when you’re in your own way
You grab at your head in pain
The frustration of structured expectation
Pressures of their unintended demands
Prompting proclamations of demarcation

I Feel Tension Running Through My Veins

I feel tension running through my veins
Trying my best to control everything in my realm
Though I know I lost my rudder some ways back
Drifting at sea with a useless helm
This frustration trying to overtake my life
Searching everywhere for something to guide
Been far too long since I tossed out my anchor
Need to seek forgiveness & be grateful for the Lord at my side
