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...

Selflessly 7-18-20


My lonely soul was destitute.
Abandoned, was my heart.
So desolate in lonesome thoughts,
so empty, torn apart.

If you could understand these words
then you'd know that is why
my life was just some lonely words
that made me want to cry.

Awake, I laid, night after night.
I didn't have a clue.
Those lonely words kept nagging me
and breaking me in two.

I found a friend, a friend indeed
who understands me now.
I used to never care or love,
but He had showed me how.

He never spoke a single word,
at least not audibly.
But He has blessed so very much,
this undeserving me.

My heart now overflows with joy.
My soul no longer cries.
The loneliness has been replaced
with sparkle in my eyes.

I'll not be focused on myself.
For Jesus, I will live.
No longer do I live for self
and selflessly will give.
