LET US

Let us
serve God,
that all can
be served

Let us
listen,
that all
may
be heard

Let us
have peace,
that no war
will be won

Let us
have understanding,
that wisdom
may come

Let us
not hurt,
that all
may feel loved

Let us
all care,
that we may
share the world

Let us
not hate,
for there will be
no one to love

Let us
be one,
with no race
to be won

Let us
be human,
remembering
we are one

Let us
try harder,
to give
to each one

Let us
take heart,
in this race
we call human.

A THOUGHT!

I am half of myself,

When
I divide the whole

I am whole
when I see only one

I am complete,

When
there is no one to oppose.

Dedicated To The World

A Poeatreeman

If one tear
falls for love

Let it be
I cared for all

If one tear comes

To touch my soul

Let it be
God's love

If one tear lets me
feel its pain

It will not hurt
unless I cared

If one tear comes,
to touch the world

Let it be
I shed my love..

WHO WILL WALK WITH ME?

I go
with what I came
I leave knowing
I am not the same

My life
is not my own

Yet
I chose
my way home

Who
Will Walk With Me?
All the days of life

Each second!

That carried me
through the days

All the sorrows
I ever gave

Every
love I ever made

All the things
I did and did not do

All the cares
I ever shared

All the ones
I never dared

All the wrongs
and rights of me

I left knowing
who was there

I brought
it with me

For my soul
was here.

A THOUGHT!

Say
your prayers
before
you leave
It may be
the only time
you can
Say
it now
for Him to hear
It will help
when you meet again

DEDICATED TO MY SISTER ROSE ARNITA

Your Loving Brother A Poeatreeman

It will be hell
If I have to kick
you to heaven
My foot
will only go so far
Take God with you,
Heaven will open up
I won't have
To hurt myself
Trying
to get you up

A POET'S NOTE

Thank You
Lord For My Tears
The heartaches
and the years
The times
you spend with me
Through
all the years
The times
you gave me
To know
My Sister Rose

A WALK WITH MYSELF

I am as big as my shoe,
As small as my heel

As good as my sole

I am in the best shape,
When I am whole

I may be worn,
Yet in the right direction

My tongue is tied,
Yet I do not need
to speak a word

I have direction,
To lead me to it all

I am myself
walking in my shoes..

A THOUGHT!

A Hard Road to Travel
is Harder,
When You take
the wrong direction

It Wears heavy
on the Soul.

A Poeatreeman

You can always
get new soles

Yet there is only one,
To take You through

Keep it always
Here with You

For in the end,
God can hold it too.

A WALK WITH DEATH

I walk
with Death
Each
day of Life

Knowing
it will be

Yet
I go on living

For Death
is not the end
The loss
would not
be living

Life
has its part
Death does too

God
opened
the door,
brought Me
on through

Until it closes
I will
walk with Him

For
God
gave Me
this moment
To walk with Him

For
when
the door closes
I will
be with Him again.

A THOUGHT!

It is not the hour
I will end

it is the end
I left
at the beginning

For
My start
was the end

My
end
was only beginning

A Poeatreeman

The Dark Side
of Life
is not Death

It is All The Shadows
You Cast On Life

All The Wrongs
You Never Made Right.

A Poet's Note

If I follow Myself
The
end will be in site

For
how far will I go
Before
the road ends?

DEATH AWAITS US

Death awaits Us
and Life does too

I will live
until I see only one

The door is open ,
I am still in the hunt

I have Today
To Reach The Sky

All things are open
until I die

Why should I sit back,
Waiting for it to come?

My days are numbered,
Yet it's only number one

It may be Today
but until it comes?

I will reach for it all,
Until I am done.

A THOUGHT!

Life is too short
to waste on Death

Let me have Tomorrow
to give it a rest

Keep it in Eternity
until I am done

Maybe Tomorrow
I will have my rest.

A Poeatreeman

God awakes
those who rest

Remember the Hour
You just passed

Remember the Path
You walked last

Know You are on it
for the very last

Eternity has come
to be the Path

Know the walk
is just beginning

Know The End
is a New Beginning..

A Poet's Note

Live each day
the best You can

Tomorrow
will be more forgiving

Give it all Today

Tomorrow
will be worth living

The cost is what
I spend Today

Tomorrow
I cannot Pay Today.

HUMANITIES A COURSE FOR LIFE

I have
a course in life

I
am trying
to be human

With
all the others
in this world

I
am trying
to be
the best I can

My grades
will be
each day
I am here

I
am
not better
just trying
to be good

I
am
not
in any class
for I see
only one world

Grant
you there
are poor and rich

Better
off does not
make you better

There
are some
who find
greatness
being poor

There
are others
who are rich

Find
they are
burdened
by it all

I
am best
when
I am human

I
am even
better
when
I help
my fellow man

If
I was born
with a silver spoon

It
does not
mean
my plate is full

If
I was not!

Does
not mean
I have
an empty one

For heart
and spirit
need both be full

If
I am poor
if I am rich

It matters
only
if I lose
my soul

For
in the end
it will not
be money
That
will bring
you to heaven

But
a heart of gold

Love
knows no rich or poor

It touches
all who seek it

Only man
puts it in a class

Poor little boy!

A THOUGHT!

If my spirit is rich
I have no need for gold
If my pockets are full
my heart is empty
What is my soul?

DEDICATED TO HUMANITY

A Poeatreeman

The measure of a man
Is not
If his pockets are filled
But his heart
Has riches beyond gold
For what if a man
Has no heart
Where
Could he place
His greatest treasure?
He cannot
For he does not hold it .

ONE NEW YEAR

One New year
will bring me a day

One New year
Has all
the promises
of tomorrow

One New year
To find
the best
of our world

One New year
To make
peace with sorrow

One New year
To love
someone new

One New year
To mend
all the cares

One New year
To keep
friendship
from falling

One New year
To thank
all the days
past gone

One new year
To dream
hope
for tomorrow

One New year
To
thank God
you're alive

One New year
To make
it all worth while.

A Poeatreeman

If I bring
care to this day

I'll have
added a tear to life

With the World
I'll have given love.

Dedicated to Mike Cianocchiall

TO THE WORLD FOR HOPE IS IN IT.

THIS MESSAGE

Take This Message
way up High

To the Land
Where God resides

Upon your Wings
will be my Prayers

With all
my Hopes and Cares

Fly Strong
and Straight for me

For I am
Human
Far from God

Weakness and Strength
are my marks

Mortal
am I in all I do

On The Wings of Doves
I'll send them to you

Praying
They'll reach your Heart

If you
Should hear my Prayers

Return them
with a Touch of you

So I may know
That you are you

For the Love of you
will carry me

Through all
The Darkest Fears

If I know
you are There with me

Through all
my Doubts and Fears.

Dedicated to Ethel Bell

A Poeatreeman

I WAS HAMMERED BY SORROW
YET SHAPED BY LOVE
NOW GOD IS HOLDING ME
I FEEL MORE LOVED,

PEACE ON EARTH

UNDER THE TREE

Under The Tree
Is not once a year,
It is all through Life.

The Presents are there,
Not all will be opened

Each Day is a Gift ,
For Me to open

What I find in it,
Is the Best I put in it

For as I am unwrapping it,
I am tying the bow

The Gift I am giving,
I am making it more

I am putting My Heart in it,
So I can give more

Each Day is a Present,
I can give too

Love is My Best One,
I can give to You

Do not wait for Christmas,
To give it too

Share it Each Day,
You will have it too

No Presents to unwrap,
When Love is Open

Under The Tree,
Let Us Look To Find Peace

Under The Heavens

Let Us Look To God
To Start The Day

For No Greater Gift
Can I Give Humanity

Than To Give Love
Each Day

Keep The Heart Open
Understanding Can Be

Forge With God
That No Sword Will Be Used

Peace Will Come
When Man Loses Hatred

Hope and Love
are The Best I Can Give Today

I Added A Prayer
That We would Find Our Way

God Willing!
We Will See The Day.


Dedicated To The World

For Each Heart
is One Light On The Tree

A Poeatreeman

A Poet's Note

When You Hang Your Heart Out

Remember The Tears

They Are The Snowflakes
Falling For Years

They Will Blanket Love
To Cheer The Heart

Remember To Care
You Will Light Up
Wishing For Peace
The Light Will Stay On

Hoping The World
Will Get Along

Asking God
Will Help Us All

I Pray The Hour
Will Not Be Long..

THE MOUNTAIN OF LIFE

Take each stride
To step to life
In each step
Strive for best.

Take the Mountain
To the top
Carry through
all you do.

If it seems
Hard to bare
Know someone's
There with you.

Though the load
Seems more,
Than you can do

Life is only greater!
When it is shared by you.

Into life we must live
Taking each Season
To the top

In our hands
is all we can
The Mountain of life
is life itself.

As with each new peak
it must be climbed

There's only , One
Who will hold us down
Or one who will hold us up

The will to climb
above ourselves.

The Greatest
is not the Climb To the Top

The Climb who made us
Find our self.

Through all life has to do

To all we must go through

Is to find our reasons
Why we're here

To know
God is there with you..

A Poeatreeman

A WALK WITH HEAVEN

When you cannot
walk again

You need faith
to get you through

For it will carry you
in all you do

Heaven's there
when you open up

God is there
to talk to you

Remember
He is there

When others
are not with you

He
will not walk away

When others
cannot face the issue.

A THOUGHT!

No walk will ever
find the way,

Unless
God is with you

No walk
will I be lost,

When God
is there with me

No walk
will ever take the steps,

Until my soul
is there with God

No walk
will I take to heaven,

Unless my heart
and soul
is one with God's.

Dedicated To Christopher

A Poeatreeman

The mountain
is there

Have faith
each day
to climb it all

Your faith
will be tested
each time
you fall

The mountain
is not
the highest climb

It's when
your faith
reaches God

You will know
how strong you are

Is not life
the mountain
we climb each day?

Harder only
when we have
no faith to pray?

Keep faith
when failure
shadows you

Give not up!
God will be there
for you..

A STAIRWAY TO GOD

I will Try
To use my Words
To Built
A Stairway To God.

Then
I Can Take a Step
Each Day
To Take me
To The Stars.

My Words
Will be of Heart
Wrote
By Care and Love.

The Ink I will Use
Is Tears That Fell
Dipped, in Sorrows
When Hurt was Held.

The Blotters Wet
Stain
With many Tears
That Fell.

I Cannot
Wipe it Away
By Saying,
I never Felt..

A Poeatreeman

Dedicated To God

If, I Built
A Chest of Gold
Would it not
Be Better
To Put in Words.

More Precious,
That Speak of Each?

Would, not
The Heart
Be Broken
By Trying
To Carry
All the Gold?

Love
Is much Lighter
Yet Heavy
On the Soul.

Would it not
Be Best
If we all Cared
A Little more?

Than the Words
I Have to Write
Would not be Filled
With so much Tears.

Love
Would Hold Us
For The Years.

THE LONG ROAD HOME

I am
one
of God’s Souls

Looking
for
the way home

It
started
when
I was born

All
was new
both
good and bad

I
have to learn
which
one is true

The
choices
are there
what
will I do?

I
pray
the right one
will
get me through

I
made mistakes
found wrong

I
am trying
to get back
where I belong

The
Road is narrow
when
choices are few

The
Road to Heaven
is one way too

The
Path to Hell
has many ways

Take
the wrong one
to walk away

The
Long Way Home
is hardest yet

It
takes
a lifetime
to reach your quest

Heaven!
There
are no short steps

I
Tripped
and Faltered
all the way

Yet
God
was there
to pick me up

The
Long Road Home
is in my sight

For
I carried God,
day and night.

Dedicated to Us All

Heaven help
the Wayward Soul
To find
a place with You...

To President William Jefferson Clinton

A Poeatreeman

The Shortest
will not be true

Yet
if you take it

Remember
what you choose

There
are no shortcuts
to Heaven

Hell
I thought of Heaven

Too
Late to say the words

My
Soul spoke not to Heaven

There
are shortcuts to Hell

Just
pass Heaven

Don’t
give a damn

You’ll
be there
in plenty of time

It
only
takes a day to reach

The
day
you passed Heaven.

A Poet's Note

The Light of Truth
Reflects on Man

How Bright will it be,
When He Keeps it in Hand?

How Shiny will its Star be?

How Much will Man See?

How Many Truths can there be?

How Many Lies ,
Before Man will not See?.
