Intellectually Incarcerated

Intellectually incarcertated

What on earth does that mean?

It means I am bound to make money

To survive and sustain myself daily

Therefore my gifts, talents, and abilities

Must be maximized for profitability

Thereby I must put on hold my creativity

Until I secure investors to undergird me

Until I figure out and master monetization

Of my intellectual property and creations

Hence I do understand a bit about incarceration

Although by no means is this my heartfelt intention

On the contrary, I loathe all about the penitentiary

I just want to live freely and express myself in liberty

God help me break free of these financial constraints

That continually seek to enslave and hold my creativity.

Broke, But Rich in Love

Broke, but rich in love

Thank the Lord God above

For this I merrily think of

When the bills are mounting

The creditors continually collecting

The interest rates rapidly accruing

The car falling apart and rusting

My body aging and hair graying

The house needing a good painting

The air conditioner strangely squeeking

The food in the refrigerator quickly going

Our insurance premiums surprisingly growing

All of these concerns and cares do continue

Nevertheless when I happily behold you!

My stresses fade and my day is now made

All heaviness of heart is replaced with gladness

All sorrow is swallowed up with your radiance

Your smile soothes my soul and makes me whole

Your touch transcends my troubles and renews me

Your gentle words comfort and tenderly nourish me

Lifting me to a much higher place full of divine grace

Reminding me that God above will surely let me taste

The promised land as I daily embark to see His face

With steadfast patience and faith run this lifelong race

My darling with you I can endure everything and boldly chase

My noble dreams and desires with burning unquenchable fire

Delighting in you as we together walk hand in hand through

Trials and tribulations, no matter our socio-economic station

Because unconditional love sustains and brings transformation

Therefore I rejoice in my inner wealth, not outward accumulation.

Divine Comedy – Awaking Humanity

Life is a glorious divine comedy

Set forth by the all wise divinity

Continuously challenging humanity

To think again more thoroughly

To examine things more carefully

Before speaking forth prematurely

Before judging others presumptuously

Before rendering conclusions hastily

Because God above knows the heart of all

Without the Creator, no man can stand tall

For God above with love gives us breath daily

The Lord of life breathes within us spiritually

Dead our bodies are without the spirit inwardly

Igniting, inspiring, inviting, and illuminating

Cultivating, quickening, encouraging, and captivating

The Maker of heaven and earth in us gives new birth

To love, life, laughter, faith, hopes, dreams, and worth

Even self-worth as we realize in God’s image we are made

Hopefully sooner rather than later after we have fully paid

With our lives, blood, sweat, and tears spending all our years

Pursuing and chasing useless trivialties and incongruencies

As we progressively awaken to our own shallow insecurity

Without relationship with our Maker we dwell in obscurity

Therefore swallow your pride and exercise some humility

As you do and walk with God humbly, you shall live happily.

A Beautiful Cardinal Flew Toward Me

As I walked into my bedroom what did I see?

I looked through the window in the distance

And to my great joy saw God answer for me

A personal prayer I had uttered weeks earlier

A simple and heartfelt request for a cardinal

A beautiful bird I had not seen in some time

Why I desired to see this beautiful red bird

I know not particularly, but it appealed to me

Perhaps cardinals in Florida are a bit of a rarity

Beyond the black birds and bluejays secondarily

From my days as a boy with a birdhouse out back

Sometimes the squirrels the bluejays would attack

Yet today this gorgeous cardinal with an orange beek

Was strangely still as he was listening for me to speak

Fully red from pointed fluffy head to luscious tail

Upon seeing this bird it made me feel quite well

Although in the distance sitting upon my fence

I somehow knew this lovely bird was God sent

For that Sunday in my office I had been writing

But not only writing, also whistling a worship song

A powerful church song in my spirit all the day long

Feeling a sense of sweet serendipity, I watched intently

When suddenly increasing my joy the bird flew to me

Drawing near to hear equally with intense curiosity

Surprisingly straight to me, directly toward the window

Stopping to rest just feet from me upon the clothes line

My spirit rejoiced within, my mind content and sublime

For not only was I aroused by nature but my loving Creator

Who truly answers my heartfelt prayer, proving He does care

Therefore I shall not be trapped by unbelief’s foul snare

Because I know my God knows atop my head every hair

My heavenly Father’s ears are open, His eyes looking down

Undoubtedly upon me His marvelous grace does abound.

Out of Sorts and Sync

Seemingly out of sorts and sync
Have you ever reluctantly been there?
Where you inwardly feel a bit square
Like you’re frantically going crazy
And angrily want to pull out your hair
When your confidence is rapidly fleeting
Your assurance dwindling and you don’t dare
To make a bold move, not knowing where
Nor what you should endeavor to do
When it seems life is passing by you
Ever so quickly, but you can’t grasp it
Nor comprehend how to live in the moment
Perplexed by life’s circumstances and situations
No time to have others questions your motivations
You’re just set to survival mode as you implode
Bordering a sudden propensity to also explode
As you inwardly are overwhelmed and erode
In financial debt your bills frighten your abode
The home in which you live seems unstable
As if any creditor were able to remove it from you
Scurrying seeking employment not knowing what to do
You pray earnestly to God asking for a breakthrough
To get you miraculously through what you’re going through
To wipe away the pain, pressure, and profuse inner turoil
To renew your heart and mind that life’s challenges spoil
To resurrect your dying vision, hope, and joy for the future
To open your eyes and direct your feet to opportunity’s door
For surely beyond your present experience to life there is more.

Confrontation is Kind, Not Cruel

Confrontation is not cruel, but kind
Otherwise you will remain pitifully blind
Blind to your own foolishness and deception
Blind to your own agenda and motivation
Blind to your people skills and offenses caused
Blind to your self-absorbed nature and flaws
Blindness is not a desirable trait, nor is it great
Therefore when someone lovingly gets in your face
Don’t get your back and dander up, nor be an ingrate
Because they’re helping you to improve your state
To reverse the deadly curse and bless your life’s fate
Otherwise you will blindly carry on until it’s too late
Only to awake one day alone with no love in your home
No money in your bank account and no goodness in life
Therefore when confrontation comes receive it humbly
Before getting angry and allowing it to produce strife
Let confrontation for righteousness sake make you great.
