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...

Don't Read This 12-12-20


Children,

I told you not to read this but you're reading anyway,
and do you disobey when Satan tells you it's okay?

Are you enticed by cunning words that sound like violins
that sing so sweetly to your wants they tempt you into sins?

Do your eager ears tickle when you hear of something odd
and make you disobey when you aren't list'ning to your God?

Do you think you are stronger and that you can break the chains
of sins that claim they're better than the God who gave you brains?

If not, then when you see temptation lurking at your door,
just tell yourself it's wrong and you won't give in anymore.

Do not be that old dog that only chases sins of sticks,
because it learned bad habits and no longer learns new tricks.

So many men thought they could change at anytime they wished,
but sin got full control of them and they got fully squished.

So don't read this and don't obey if you are smarter than
the selfish, grumpy, lying cuss who's now a crass old man.

For God so loved the world that He has given you His Son
and Comforter to guide you through the life that you've begun.

I pray that you will live your life in good and special way,
so everyone around you will see sunshine ev'ry day!
