A Man's Disposition

As goes a man’s disposition
So goes the mind
And so goes the man

Change his disposition
Change the man
And thus his members

Bad Habits

An uninvited guest
Forced into my home
Became the landlord
I pay him homage
Not to be evicted

If I cultivated integrity
If I nurtured honesty
If I hadn't abhorred virtue
I would retain my home
And not be lorded

Pondering

Oh! that I may soar above the Earth
Ten thousand miles
Swimming in ocean of clouds
Reaching Heaven
Touching the face of God.
What peace my soul would find
What joy my heart would dine
A way out of this befogged life.

Stance on Faith

Faith seeks to follow Him
Even through darkest night
And brightest daylight

Faith seeks to do His will
Though contrary to commonsense
And all sound judgment

Faith seeks veracity
And not reasons
Faith stands steadfast
On God’s declaration

Bears No ill Will

The eye bears no ill will
And the ear no evil intentions
These the heart alone bears.

The eye sees what it sees
And the ear what it hears
And without prejudice

The mind analyzes
And the heart judges
Afterwards, the eye, the ear
They learn to discriminate

Tina – Big City Grill

Beside Harmon Meadows,
Opposite the Hamptons,
At the Meadowlands
Lies Phil’s Place –
Big City Grill
Great food, great service
And visit by Phil

But,
The best sight of the Night
belongs to Tina.
With beauty ascribed,
A smile that lights up
the atmosphere,
A sense of humor,
And a rare gentleness
that is bestowed on few

Missing Soul

To the ends of the earth
Where dreams are conjured
Where friendship is born
Through the planes where life begins
and death has no stay,
There I will find you,
There I will take you,
On a journey of a thousand lives
On a journey of new beginnings,
Of knitting souls and hugs,
Of endless kisses and love
To live with you through eternity,
To behold the beauty of friendship
that never dares to die.

The Sin We Love

Every time I sin
I declare that
I love my sin
More than
I love the Lord

Every time I sin
I proclaim
My loyalty to sin
And my disloyalty
To the Lord

Every time I sin
I announce
My honor for my lust
And my dishonor
For the Lord

Every time I sin
I state my regard

Offscouring

To be willing to die
For one's faith or belief
With dignity is easier than
To live for the demands of faith
As the offscouring of the earth

One does show beauty
But the other humiliation.

Yet you may not choose
The time and type of work
Nor the scenery of sacrifice
The Lord has placed on you.

Your calling of faith may be
A path to dignified heroism
Or a life of debasement!
Be mindful that His calling
Is not beneath your dignity!

No Neutral Words

You laugh at your jokes and revel at your humor
And carefully or carelessly your jestings spewing
And to the hurt of some or the applause of many
And indeed, they may seem all well and good
But take note that there are no neutral words,
Neither are there any throwaway phrases
Every word, either carefully constructed,
Or inadvertently uttered, bear the markings
Of your core being, vestiges of your soul
The state of your heart in her unfeigned reality
