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...

Futility 10-18-08

is a cry unheard -
or a star unseen.

is a dictionary never opened -
or eyes that cannot read.

is a termite encased in a metal box -
or seeds, in a sealed package, never planted.

is the worlds most beautiful flower in a forest unseen -
or a forest with no beautiful flowers.

is the greatest sermon preached - to an empty room -
or a room full of bodies that a sermon doesn't move.

is a microphone unplugged -
or headphones on deaf ears.

is a world of envy -
or a state of hate.

is deceptiive love -
or worthless riches.

is kissing a toad -
or hugging a flag pole.

is outside a fancy door, doing nothing -
or opening the biggest door to nowhere.

is the hardest worker, with no understanding -
or the greatest mind in a body never worked.

is a hole dug - just before caving back in -
or the greatest, tallest mountain of debt.

is a king without his subjects -
or subjects without their king.

is having been given an unusable brain -
or given a mind which is thoughtless.

It's doom, agony, despair, life without purpose -
It's fruitless, full of pain and hopelessness.

It's sin, the absence of appreciation -
It’s lacking thankfulness for every blessing.

It's death on a cross without sufficient grace -
It’s the great deceptive arrogance of 'works' by man.

It comes in many shapes and sizes -
It thrives like a stubborn weed - when faith is weak.

It's life without faith in the almighty God -
or lifelessness without His grace, under cold sod.
