Change Poems

All of us experience change in our lives. Change is the one constant in our lives. There are changes that we look forward to and change that we fear. However, one thing is for sure. Things will not stay the same no matter how much we would like them too. When a life change occurs, we have two choices in how to respond. We can despair that a change has come and assume that things will be worse, or we can look with excitement at the new possibilities that the change presents.

Dream Poems

Dream

There are two kinds of dreams. There are dreams that we have while asleep and dreams that we have while we are awake. What is the connection between the two types? Both kinds of dreams are about the yearnings that are held deep inside us. Some of these desires are so secret that we dare not share them even with our closest friends. Those of us that dare to put our dreams down on paper are showing the courage and faith that they will come true.

Faith Poems

Faith

To have faith is to defy logic. It takes faith to think positively. It takes faith to believe that there is a loving God who cares deeply about our pain. To believe in life, the universe, or yourself after numerous failures is to have courage. Faith is an act of courage. It is choosing to get up in the morning and face our fears and believe that God will help us. Faith is choosing to believe that even though we may have failed one hundred times before that we can succeed the next time.

War Poems

War is one of the mysteries of the human existence. It is clear that in 99.9% of wars the loss outweighs the gain. The loss of life of young men in their prime is horrific. Those that do survive often have post traumatic stress disorder. It is clear that this is not the way we were meant to live. After all the devastation that is caused in the field of battle, countries often make the decision to withdraw when they can no longer bear the casualties. War is a curse of mankind. It is a function of the ego's need to assert its superiority even in the face of its own destruction.

Work Poems

Work

Retirement is something that people look forward to all of their lives. It is a lucky few however, that truly get to enjoy their golden years. Factors like health concerns, death of a spouse, and monetary issues are all things that can prevent people from taking full advantage of their retirement years. Enjoy life while you can because you never know what is going to happen later. Those that are lucky enough to really enjoy their "golden years" are truly blessed.
