Why Do I Pray?

Faith, Life Lessons and Impressions, Poetry, Uncategorized

Because I believe, I  receive

Because I received, I believe

Because I expect, He perfects

Because I am His, life’s a bliss

Because he has it all, my all is his

Why do I pray?

Because he tells me to ask and say

Because not a second I am forgotten.

Because not a blink he fails to listen

Because my every breath shall thank

Because He is whatever I need to fill this ________.

Why ?

Necessary Silence

Faith, Life Lessons and Impressions, Poetry, Uncategorized

I laughed.

I realized that it’s not what I needed

I cried.   Image

I realized that tears won’t purge my soul.

I talked.

I realized that it’s pointless.

My heart grew tired.

I wrapped myself in silence.

I realized that I needed God.

I was empty to be filled again.

“There will always be a space in our hearts

That only God can fill.”

Voices

Poetry, Uncategorized

The trees sway in the symphony of the wind

        The leaves fall in unison with the rain that drops

                The flowers bloom in colors bright as loud voices

                 The birds chirp in choir as if in a majestic orchestra

The poet smiles.

                                               There is a language not spoken but is heard

                                   Not an utterance of words but in the irony

Of silence that speaks so loud

Everything talks in a joyful mystery

                             She stares up the sky

                      Sees the Hand that made everything

               She smiles once more.
