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 (and still is), 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...

Tickled Ears 11-1-08


We do things in life to make our ourselves happy.
remembering also, our friends and our family.
Sometimes we say things to make someone proud.
If others can hear us we might say them loud.

Compromise happens if jobs we must keep,
even though words come in multitudes, cheap.
Here we might bend - or waver some there,
but why does it matter and why should we care?

Sometimes it goes on for years and for years,
as everyone listens with fun-tickled ears.
But truth must ignore both the wink and nod....
Should we care what man thinks - or rather God?

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,"
