John Leroy Maxwell

Solitary Beauty

Well balanced features, slightly pointed chin
Alluring heavy eyelids, that make you gaze right in
Fine black veil and simplistic in dress
Her true identity is anybodys guess
The meaning of her enigmatic smile continues
to be debated
How so, is anyone related

Journey Through Life

Life is a journey, all people partake, one
step at a time, with decisions to make

We will have choices for right or for wrong,
in the journey through life, as we travel along

Sometimes there's strife, it's part of the
journey we take through this life

Our God has a plan, it's truly His way
God's spirit will guide us, each step,
every day

Deep shadows of the farthest corners of
my periphery warning me of pending doom
At once a sense of calm begins to overtake
my being, as if the eternal tranquility of
death was already embracing me
Then, marching to the failing beat of my
heart, faint footsteps came to a halt
The war was over, the battle lost, and I
surrendering my soul to the demons
inside of me

This great civilization died not as a result of external agression,
but from internal crumbling of the character of its people
The people had become so luxury-loving and soft that they would
not exert themselves in their own defense
A malignant disease that might be described as a maudlin sympahty
for ones enemies seemed to paralyze their will
Here lies the nation that sacrificed its life in an effort to gain
the goodwill and friendship of its enemies
Here lies the people who abandoned their priceless heritage of
patriotism, religious faith and truth for the socialism that
sapped their manhood
Here lies the nation that abandoned the faith of its fathers who
had made it great; for the cynical skepticism and atheism of
its enemies
Here lies the nation that died from loss of faith in God, loss of
pride and confidence in itself, and a loss of the will to defend
