Kindness flows

‪Kindness flows,‬
‪Through the crevices of life,‬
‪Always seeking to salve,‬
‪The sorrow and the strife.‬
‪Goodness builds,‬
‪And does not tear down,‬
‪Breaking down the barriers,‬
‪Upon which we are bound.‬
‪So be good not great,‬
‪Kind but strong,‬
‪Seek for the truth,‬
‪Right the wrong!‬

NYPD Blue

23 died when the towers fell,

You left your families, walked through hell,

For a cause both righteous and true,

Selfless sacrifice of the NYPD Blue.

42nd street was a mess,

And so was Times Square,

In the eighties,

Before Giuliani was there,

You built back a city,

Where dreams again flew,

You restored it,

The officers of the NYPD Blue.

The whole world took notice,

At the work you had done,

And sought to learn,

How the streets were won.

How soon they forget,

What is undeniably true,

New York is not New York,

Without the NYPD Blue.

Lost and Found

I wish I could reach back,

Reach back in the past,

When my soul was innocent,

And my heart pure.

When I could look at something,

And say “There, that’s right,

I know it to be right,

I have no doubts.”

But age begets doubts,

And time desperation,

In a world charged with sorrow,

Nothing is for certain,

nothing for sure,

All we can do is love,

And love some more,

Hoping God is smiling on us,

To bring about a better day!

Shades of Grey

Some see black,

Some see white,

I see Grey!

Some see Blue State,

Some See Red State,

I see the United States!

Some see left,

Some see right,

I see center!

Some say you got to stand for something,

Or you’ll fall for anything.

I say stand too hard for something,

And you will fall for anything!

In the end, the Beatles had it right,

The Love you take is equal to the love you make!

Listen, learn, love,

As we discern the best answer,

Through Shades of Grey!

Thinking Our Way into Oblivion

Thinking our way into oblivion,

we forgo faith and embrace fear.

Worried about the future,

we forget each life brings the promise of redemption,

and no AI can match the spark of the soul!

Instead of reveling in life we cling to death,

hugging a tree instead of a child.

Thinking our way into oblivion,

the world may end in a whine instead of a bang,

Unless we love our way back to life!

Love’s Everlasting Kiss

Love does not come easy,

it’s often built in trials,

minute by minute,

day by day.

It is built on sorrow,

As much as hope,

Tears and hardship,

As much as laughter.

It does not flit,

It does not float,

It is SOLID,

and it ENDURES!

Why love then?

It is our purpose and mission,

What we were built for,

What God designed!

Because love does not last,

for a minute or an hour.

It lasts a lifetime,

and through eternity.

So, drive on through the pain,

And strive through the sorrow,

And with one last kiss,

Reach for the tomorrow.

And, remember in waiting,

Not the words left spoken or tears,

But the smile and loving eyes,

That resound through the years.
