Me and Jeremy

Jeremy’s locker was next to mine

I never bothered to take the time

Me and Jeremy were not close

We never even really spoke

I was captain of the football team

He always wore black shirts with black jeans

He was a loner but never alone

God and the devil were in the same home

I had questions but here’s my confession

Didn’t know he suffered from depression

But he made one hell of an impression

When he read that Bible out loud

Then one night the demons won the fight

When Jeremy committed suicide

Not even God could bring back his life

That morning when his body was found

Lots of things I thought I knew

Turned out to be very few

Words I wish I would’ve said

Forever stuck in my head

Next to me is an empty space

I’ve even spent time at his grave

So many words I didn’t say

I wonder if he knows he changed my life

I learned about God, still learning to pray

Maybe Jeremy would be alive today

If I took a few seconds to say hey

I wouldn’t have a lifetime asking why

Enough Hurt For Today

We’ve been hurting for so long

But we keep singing the same song

And maybe I’m wrong

I’m done watching the news

I’m going to turn off the tv

Take some time for me

I’m not going to apologize

For not listening to the lies

Putting it all in a box

Praying it will all stop

Cause there’s been enough hurt for today

Not much else for me to say

I know it’s not going to go away

Maybe it’s only a delay

Finding some alone time to pray

Cause there’s been enough hurt for today

Not going to think about tomorrow

All the hate, all the sorrow

I know there’s more for me to know

Not going to think about the shootings

The virus, the death, the violence, the looting

Need a win, tired of the losing

Going to think about something else

May be selfish, but need to heal myself

Been living too long in the dark

Need a cure for my broken heart

Cause there’s been enough hurt for today

Not much else for me to say

I know it’s not going to go away

Maybe it’s only a delay

Finding some alone time to pray

Cause there’s been enough hurt for today

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to  bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship  today.” —Thich Nhat Hanh |

Maybe I’m only hitting pause

Hoping we’re not a lost cause

We are all broken , yet chosen

Praying we can get through this moment

Cause there’s been enough hurt for today

Not much else for me to say

I know it’s not going to go away

Maybe it’s only a delay

Finding some alone time to pray

Cause there’s been enough hurt for today

The Devil Told Me He Was Dead

I was feeling a little down on my luck

Met a man who said his name was Chuck

Then he said, did you know the devil was dead ?

So we sat together and broke bread

Man, he could tell a story

He told me I had nothing to worry

We had a couple shots and a few beers

He told me again, I had nothing to fear

Then he looked me in the eye and said

Hey, man, did I tell you the devil was dead ?

I was thinking maybe I was wrong

To sit there and talk, but it’s been so long

Since God’s shown up around here

So we ordered a few more beers

Then he told me a few jokes

Then lit up another smoke

He asked what I thought about love

And he asked if I believed in God

But before I could answer he said

Hey, did I tell you the devil was dead?

When Facing Satan's Temptations - 1 Peter 5:8 - Today's Bible Verse for  June 21, 2018

Maybe I was wrong to sit there and listen

But I thought what was I really missing

Been so long since God showed up ‘round here

So we ordered more shots and a few more beers

Maybe it was the alcohol that started to talk

I told him it was time for me to take a walk

There was something about him I recognized

I said man, your entertaining but all you do is lie

Hell, man, we’ve all had a bad year

It seems like a long time since God’s been here

You’ve won some battles and had a good time

But I believe love wins and God is alive

Then I looked him in the eye and said

After all, didn’t you tell me you were dead ?

Signs Of Life

Through all the dark days

Through all the darker nights

When I had lost my way

When I had lost my sight

When my mind was wheel

That kept getting stuck in the mud

When nothing could I feel

When I was always stuck

When the grass had turned brown

When the leaves had fallen from the tree

When snow had covered the ground

You revealed yourself to me

A cardinal, feathers so red

A tulip that bloomed too soon

The sound of baby birds waiting to be fed

A butterfly emerging from its cocoon

Five baby skunks chasing their mother

A baby deer taking its first steps

The buzzing of a bee and then another

All these things revealed and I wept

Tears of joy instead of tears of sorrow

For in the darkness there are signs of life

I found peace in today and hope for tomorrow

For the darkness always succumbs to the light

Falling In Place by Stephen McWhirter –

Noah Scape

There was a man named Noah Scape

Who felt misfortune was always his fate

He hated everything on this earth

Not once did he ever say a kind word

When people saw him coming

The other way they’d go running

Noah Scape would quite often offend

Surprisingly, or maybe not, Noah had many friends

But the ones he had felt the same as he

Noah Veil, Betty Wont, Miss Happs, and Y. Me

Dee Zaster, Emma Fraid, Hope Lescase,

Lois Steem, Shirley Knott, and Ray Neday

They all felt the world was out to get them

Perhaps, that is why they were all friends

But one day Noah Scape

Fell into it in a bad way

He needed help

But he truly felt

His troubles he could not share

No one he knew would care

With his head down he walked away

Wishing he could find Sunny Daze

A girl he knew once upon a time

Or maybe Yul B. Allright

He was always positive

And always quite supportive

Gene Yess was thoughtful and smart

Phil Hope always spoke from the heart

Then Noah thought maybe his life wasn’t a mess

Truly in his heart he knew he had to confess

That where he was in his life

His choices were part of his demise

So he chose right there and then

To begin his life again

For he had been miserable for quite a while

His face nearly cracked when he started to smile

The clouds started to part and the sun began to shine

Noah realized the light had been there the entire time

For where he was was not where he had to be

His eyes only needed to be open so he could see

He only had to make better choices

And listen to more positive voices

Now Noah knew that it was never to late

For there had always been a way out for Noah Scape

I Want To Say Thank You

Thank A Police Officer Day on Delmarva - DelmarvaLife

I usually do not post on the weekend but sometimes you have to.

I want to say thank you

For running into the unknown

For responding to the call

Not knowing if you’ll make it back home

For keeping our town safe

When you are patrolling the streets

For stopping, just to say hi

For getting the cat out of the tree

For keeping our kids safe

By being in our schools

For writing me that speeding ticket

When I chose to break the rules

Thank you for working late

Missing your family’s supper

I know your job is hard

And some are making it tougher

But I just wanted to take a minute

To let you know some of us care

That cry with you, that stand with you

That respect you, that says a prayer

That some of us will stand by your side

We’ll remember the heroes

Who responded on their last ride

Stay strong, stay protected, get home safe

It might not be the popular thing to say

But when have I cared about that

So thank you, not only today

But every day

Time To Say Goodbye

Time to Say Goodbye – Moroccanoil Beautiful Business

It’s the same story every night

I tell myself it’s time to say goodbye

I feel like I am just wasting time

I’ve got other things I need to do

If only I could break up with you

I can’t tolerate the stress you put me through

But it’s harder to do than I thought

And sometimes I feel like I cannot

You’re an addiction I have fought

Here is the cold hard fact and you have to face it

I want to get better and you want me complacent

You want me to stay here but I want to go places

But tonight will be the night

Candy Crush, I’m telling you goodbye

Wait, you’re giving me an hour of free lives

Ok maybe tomorrow……I can say goodbye
