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...

Beheaded 8-22-13

What could it be?  They tortured me
as others stood around.
They seized me tight.  There was no fight.
They threw me to the ground.

There was no ease, down on my knees.
And then I overheard,
Kill him!  Kill him!  It was grim.
They shoved my head forward.

Through their disgust, I tasted dust -
my face against the dirt.
I felt the weight of all their hate
and then I heard them blurt,

Deny! Deny! - or you will die!
With that, one raised his sword.
In dampened eyes I shared my cries,
"Oh, please forgive them Lord!"

The war against those who love others continues.
There is violence against many loving Christians
who have never hurt anyone- but only helped others-
the sick, the elderly, the children.
The killings and church burnings continue.
We, the people, either stand up for
the peaceful, the meek, the humble and the innocent,
or we stand against them.
There is no in-between.
There is no 'sitting on the fence'. (Rev. 3:16).
Educate yourself,
then pray, then help, then vote.
Every minute matters.
If, indeed, you love others,
please give to your local church missions,
print this out and pass it on...
Thank you!
