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...

With His Remaining Breath 11-8-14


He overflows his plate with food,
anticipating taste.
He overflows his closets too
not caring of the waste.

He has to have the finest car
with leather seats and 'air'.
His bank accounts are just for him.
For poor?  He doesn't care.

Huge profits fill his bank accounts.
His profiting is fun.
He'd sell his soul to profit more.
He'd sell to anyone.

His home, he fills with furniture,
the finest he can find.
He then enjoys his fav'rite game
to ease his guilty mind.

He fills his days with everything
and his most latest whim.
And this 'enjoyment' fills his life.
He fills his life with him.

I pity such a person who
has no room in his heart -
for God or love or charity -
who fin'lly falls apart.

How guilty, lonely he will be
just days before his death.
Oh, he'll recall his life of 'self'
with his remaining breath.
