THIS GUEST--A HERO

THIS GUEST....A HERO

I've stood beside a hero
For nigh almost a year
His Faith is ever growing
And to me, he shows No Fear.

He's sure that life is ending
But He's living it his best.
He laughs and jokes to cheer others
For by the Father, He is blessed.

His poetry is inspiring
For in the Father he believes,
Spreading there the Father's word
Great blessings he receives.

Each day he shares a message
Each day he shares a joke.
He'll not complain, he's dying,
He'll just act like other folk.

To me He is so special
For through his eyes I can see
That special place in Heaven
That awaits the likes of me.

And now he pulls away from us
To spare that grief that we do share
But, I know, When I get to Heaven
I will, most surely, see him there.

Blessings my friend.
May God do for you
What you have done for others!

Love You!

Heroes

there's been a lot of talk
about heroes this week
let me tell you about heroes

the single mom making minimum wage
trying to go to school, and keep
her babies clothed and fed

the school teacher who, upon
losing funding, takes his or
her own money and buys supplies

the young businessman who stops
what he's doing, and goes and
serves in the soup line

the common joes who sit
in protest of the oil pipeline
ready to be arrested if needed

the young girls in Taliban controlled
countries who dare to go to school

the Mexican family slipping
across the border by cover
of night, risking it all
for a chance, for a chance

the human rights activists who
speak out knowing they'll be
imprisoned, beaten, or worse

the neighbor who stops what
he's doing and comes over to help
when no one else will

the drug addict who walks away
from it, and starts over
step by step

the common citizen, of this country
or any country, that stands up
and says enough is enough
right is right, and wrong is wrong

these, and many more like them
are my heroes!

Cups Of Earth

Daydreams without heroes- underneath school
Busses,
Underneath cathedrals: angel-less
Heroes
Playing hooky, spending all of their Roman Candles,
While the daylight flickers
Like the light through a zoetrope:
And now you see her brown skinned, being chased
By foxes
Into that world over the trees,
And what you would have wished to speak to her
Has clouded in your mouth
Like the guts of an orchid- and you can only
Guess at what she does, as the night inevitably overspills
Its cups of earth.

  304.     

The Seed-At-Zero

The seed-at-zero shall not storm
That town of ghosts, the trodden womb,
With her rampart to his tapping,
No god-in-hero tumble down
Like a tower on the town
Dumbly and divinely stumbling
Over the manwaging line.

The seed-at-zero shall not storm
That town of ghosts, the manwaged tomb
With her rampart to his tapping,
No god-in-hero tumble down
Like a tower on the town
Dumbly and divinely leaping
Over the warbearing line.

Through the rampart of the sky
Shall the star-flanked seed be riddled,
Manna for the rumbling ground,
Quickening for the riddled sea;
Settled on a virgin stronghold
He shall grapple with the guard
And the keeper of the key.

May a humble village labour
And a continent deny?
A hemisphere may scold him
And a green inch be his bearer;
Let the hero seed find harbour,
Seaports by a drunken shore
Have their thirsty sailors hide him.

May be a humble planet labour
And a continent deny?
A village green may scold him
And a high sphere be his bearer;
Let the hero seed find harbour,
Seaports by a thirsty shore
Have their drunken sailors hide him.

Man-in-seed, in seed-at-zero,
From the foreign fields of space,
Shall not thunder on the town
With a star-flanked garrison,
Nor the cannons of his kingdom
Shall the hero-in-tomorrow
Range on the sky-scraping place.

Man-in-seed, in seed-at-zero,
From the star-flanked fields of space,
Thunders on the foreign town
With a sand-bagged garrison,
Nor the cannons of his kingdom
Shall the hero-in-to-morrow
Range from the grave-groping place.
