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...

Creator and Destroyer... 6-1-07

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the earth,
with love, perseverance, and His gift through Mary’s virgin birth.
In the end, man destroys - for what it's really worth.

What's our goal? Where's the truth in what we have in store -
for have we focused selfishly - not on what went before?
Yes, God created, but man destroys through hate and angry war.

Man demands an answer. He's asks himself, "But why?"
He prays to God or Allah, seeks for peace from way up high -
then withdraws to his own measures - to truth he will deny.

Sin IS the cause for everything that's lacking in this world -
and that's why man destroys it all in wars that he has hurled.
Oh, but God will someday come. His wrath will be unfurled.

Man still seeks an answer though - in one he can agree....
but he won't find it in himself despite his loudest plea.
The answer still awaits him yet, through full humility....

Is there hope? God only knows - what all man desecrates,
through all of our self-centeredness, and sin that still awaits.
Will man continue to destroy - or love what God creates?

Man is educated, wise - with tools at his command,
but that age, old answer eludes him. Does he really understand?
Is the answer in our self - or is it in God's hand?

In the beginning, God created - through truth and grace, His love.
In the end, man destroys - to love he gives a shove,
-as he focuses on sin and self, instead of God above....
