I intend to spend My Future Days in Hopefulness of Love
Than to surrender to the darkness of despair
With Thy Lord by My Side
In His Faith

allusion, character, dark, rose, integrity,
Blinded by Love
Purity can not conceive of the Depth of Darkness
Hopefulness believes the lost will fine their way back
Genuineness yearns for the greater good
Integrity commands high ideals
Forthright will inspirer those with a open heart
How many times will it take....
For a Pure Heart to see.....
The Gift of Truth.....
Isn't always what it appears to be.....

feelings, happiness, hope,
Some love stories make you ponder
how you got this far.
Others make you want to wander
guided by a star.
Roll on thunder, roll on night
never let me sleep.
That's an over-rated right
and I've no soul to keep.
Loved too easily it seems-
my heart kept beating faster.
Through the canyons of my dreams
was led into disaster.
Dismal breakage everywhere
as I became undone.
Just about too much to bear;
I was too tired to run.
Now the pages have been turned
and hopefulness prevails.
Never again will I be burned
and love will guide my sails

color, hope, lost, stars, time,
Time shifting through the elements themselves
Reveals little but what is of ourselves
Over bridge of eternity I’ve flown
Grasping at the railings of life’s unknown
Colors they flash before my eyes twinkling
Like the stars in the sky seeming winking
Over and over inside my lost head
I wander around looking for a bed
A place to lie on to fill my dreams up
Allowing rest to bring life to my cup
The bridge composes of enlightenment
Based off of hope’s lovely encampment
Strong hopefulness for peace and desires true
Times enveloping trip into the blue

Well, we were on rafts, laughing at the boats.
You talked food; I was talking animals.
Straight from the heart while they were talking quotes
regurgitated from TV channels.
Floating from one to another island;
we were young, in love and adrift at sea.
Dreams coming true without even trying,
and that is how it was supposed to be.
We didn’t get lost till we settled on shore
and neon intercepted our wishes.
Limited their hopefulness in folklore;
it blinded two kindred accomplices.
Never wanted to be part of this race,
but life comes around and laughs in your face.

peace, love, faith
i like world peace and loving others
truthfulness is important to me
hopefulness is important to me
fairness is important to me
love is a good thing
hatred is a bad, but helps
so that not everyone is perfect
the economy is crashing
people sre way to stuck on themselves
global warming is ruining this world

faith, hope, love, visionary, self, self,
As oneness in consent, some hopefulness not spent
you bring to mind, in even kind, a spirit of advent.
Beginning Thy will's course, nor empathy's divorce,
I try my understanding, in your truth's whole resource.
No guesswork could proclaim, nor ego bring self aim,
I pray for nearness' unity in Thy complete remain.
A broken course might end, but courage still amend,
the spirit of self discipline, in Thee my noble friend!

anxiety, appreciation, dedication, happiness, love, thank you,
I feared my face would be too thin
my hair the same and where to begin
on all the flaws that do reside
apparently deep, deep, deep inside
this bony frame, this craggy husk
this leathery hide, approaching dusk
so near the nadir than the start,
but instead I find within your heart
a sea of human hopefulness
and that magic word; acceptance
that fills you with serenity
and beckons through your smile to me
come in, the water's safe and warm,
come in and leave behind the storms
we'll swim across this sea as one,
together, towards our setting sun
by TS Poetry |
Blue heights peak
and can clearly see
a majesty of calm
blinders cast away
in the confusion
the built up
there is modesty
losing track of time
golden years ring
of earthen vessels
unlocked in trust
serenity sits upon the horizon
pages tumble in the wind
on a flight of life,
written and re-written

angst, lost love, sad, music, music,
Can you hear the sound?
The music sang for you
Can you not her the message within it
Of us finding, finding, our rhythm
Can you hear the music playing for you?
Begging, pleading with you
Not to leave me
Can you not hear my pleas of cries?

blessing, christian, devotion, faith, god, jesus, spiritual,
Abounding in the Almighty’s goodness
Blest heart of mine praises God with gratefulness
Enrichessed tremendously by His graciousness
Cared for with Christ’s compassion fullness
Deared by virtue of His forgiveness
Faith gets stronger midst trials’ hardness
Geared toward service steadfastness
Hoisted upon glowing hopefulness
I love to share His loving kindness*.
*Psalm 69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

When I close my eyes and I think of YOU, this battle of you I've already won. But when I open my eyes up to look around, my fight not even begun. I've realized the battle is not with YOU, it lies within me, your wickedness, my hopefulness, I've yet to put to rest. What a lucid dream, to keep dreaming of chasing the same unrealistic thing. I did for so many years, shed so many tears. I have so many regrets, but mostly, the first time we meet. I've grown stronger in this ,but the pain I still feel can't be remissed as I sit and often reminisce. Do you sit perplexed over me, or have you gave me my wings and been set me free? The battle is not with YOU, its within me.

best friend, joy, kiss, love, romantic, soulmate, time,
The thought of you to me is such sweet bliss,
a joy that lasts, enduring for all time;
a joy, like love, that lives on with a kiss;
and will not end with the end of this rhyme.
The sight of you to me is happiness,
a promise to me that God is keeping;
so long as I abide in hopefulness,
with joy my heart always will be leaping!
If not for you, my bliss would disappear;
and be lost in the cold background of space;
it'd be there where I'd weep and shed a tear,
ne'er knowing the joy of seeing your face.
You are a bliss to me to epoch's end;
which fools cannot surpass with vogue or trend.

Marvelousness and hopefulness
Joyousness and faithfulness
Loyalty and serve him wholeheartedly
Puffed upness and insulting and crudeness is not godliness...cussing, in other words, is Satanic honestly...regardless of what others say more or less
Not easily angered - how can I be of righteousness?
Trustworthiness and tranquility go hand in hand
Understand where our airplanes land...understand?
Love your enemies and neighbors as yourself
Love your family and friends as yourself...
Love all and hate no one...
Look up to His son...

Sang the heart
Stirred the feelings
Melted the emotions
Seldom I wandered
Should have been here
Integrity I wanted
Tender and hopefulness I needed
Honesty and loyalty I observed
For the world to know
That I love you with all of my being
Words of love, love, love
This journey full of warmth
United in love
Bundles of joy

stars pressed to see as we came over the hill
they are here one whispered.
I smiled at my twin; they know I said
The wind had predicted us years ago
we glided in softly, trying not to wake
sleeping children who needed their sugarplums
you first I told my brother
he was delighted
our fairy dust gentled into windows,
filling the children’s brains
with the happiest of thoughts
guiding their imaginations toward hopefulness
love joy and peace
interspersed as subliminal clips
were smoothly dancing into their dendrite highways
our work done we went back to heaven as quickly as we came.
