NOTE: Word-of-mouth is the only advertising I have ever done and I thank those who have spread the word. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for donations. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with over 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was, will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

What If? 2-16-06


What if, by chance, the sun didn't rise,
the moon didn't shine, one dozen was nine?
What if, by chance, streams didn't flow,
the wind didn't blow, and we didn't grow?

What if, by chance, birds didn't fly,
fish didn't fry, and we didn't cry?
What if, by chance, we couldn't see,
we couldn't agree, and we weren't free?

What if, by chance, a few were a lot,
ice was too hot, but fire was not?
What if, by chance, a dollar's a dime,
colors were time, and lies were sublime?

What if, by chance, the horizon was near,
a day was a year, and front was the rear?
What if, by chance, kindness was crime,
soapsuds were grime, and talking was mime?

Then that, for sure would be day in the night,
and wrong in the right, and peace in a fight.
Yes, we do have a right to our opinion -
but truth will always prove if it's right.
