!^$*#(?> YOU HAVE THEM < ?)#*$^! I HAVE THEM ?




SHORTFALLS !

YYEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH !?
WWWWHHHHHYYYYYYYYYY ?
WHY DON'T PEOPLE IN GENERAL ?
WHY DON'T PEOPLE PRACTICE On THEIR OWN LITTLE !
STUPID !
IDIOTIC !
RIDICULOUS !
SINFULLY !
SHORTFALLS ?
INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT MY CURSING !
IT'S BECAUSE THEY NEED TO PLAY GOD AND HAVE IT THEIR WAY !
MAYBE I AM THE ONLY ONE THAT DOWNLOADS My OWN SHORTFALLS ,
On THE WEBSITE ?
DO THEY DOWNLOAD THEIR SHORTFALLS On THE INTERNET !
AND I'll WRITE AND SAY THIS WITH ALL THE UPMOST RESPECT ?
HELL NO !
THEY DON'T !
THANK YOU VERY MUCH ?
HHHEEEEEYYYYYYYY ?
HELLION YYEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH ?
I COULD THINK OF MILLIONS OF THINGS THAT WOULD BE ALOT MORE WORST ?
THAN CURSING ?

Here They Are Triumphant, The Crows



its a magnificent picture of them
in one panoramic snapshot
from the top of a downtown building

there must be an entire generation here
crows by the hundreds
maybe even the thousands
gathered together here on one block
the flock

crowded into the largest of trees
with the longest of branches
roosting

survivors of
a series of singular winter storms
which had tried to wipe out
the denizens of Portland
but not them

here they are triumphant
perched among the hundred year elms
I am awe struck
my breath sucked away
as if I were with them perched in the cold

side*by*side
the sea of their uncountable numbers
murder upon murder
of crows

I bow to them
saluting them with my brilliant smile

Not In Vain



Flesh and blood cannot inherit,
Treasures of the Kingdom of God;
And not solely on your merit,
That decays from where you were flawed.

What decays you cannot receive,
Anything that will not decay;
Without faith, how can you believe?
Since you do not trust and obey.

Let us look back to history,
Why man does kill, cheat and will lie;
For I told you a mystery,
Because not all of us will die.

Because all of us will be changed,
It will happen in an instant;
A split second bodies exchanged,
Glory shining to be brilliant.

This is at the trumpet last sound,
As the dead will come back to life;
As they will become Heaven bound,
No longer with toils or strife.

They will change to live forever,
A new body not to decay;
And a bond that will not sever,
With God that will not stray.

This mortal body must be gone,
So that I can live forever;
With the coming of the new dawn,
For the eternal endeavor.

The Scripture teachings will come true,
How a new body does await;
With a new one for each of you,
A body that will seal your fate.

Death is turned into victory,
But within death, where is your sting?
It will be still a mystery,
Until you hear the angels sing.

But the sting of death has been sin,
The standards of God give sin might;
That you feel when death will begin,
And will end when seeing the light.

Right now, i feel a calling, and i know what ive got to DO


Right now, i feel a *CALLING*and i *KNOW* just what*I*HAVE*got*to*DO
Its*0401*in the early morn, and i know there are people down on their luck, homeless alone, and on the streets, and they need my help*TOO
9
So really i dont know, my very* EXACT*mission*quest*and*PLAN
But all that i know, for absolute sure, is that i am going to help others find their*DIGNITY*and*RESPECT*and*one person at a time, woman, child, and man*proudly im gonna help them to *STAND

So i have been wide awake, already for hours*NOW
As in my heart and mind, im thinking about others so lost, alone, devastated, and low, and im going to help them, get a grip, and stand up, proud, strong and bold,* SOME*WAY*SOME*HOW,

I will start now with my SON
Who has been, homeless, is homeless, confused, on his own, by choice, with his dreams, vision, and* grand *, great,*dreams he is fighting to be*WON

I know that he feels misunderstood, and put down by others so low
But, im his father, now soon he will be thirty two, i am going to do my very best of my best, to help him find his mission, quest, and GOALS

So i know his heart, he is my SON
I know, his battles can be overcome, and WON

Before like every other, i shut the door
After helping him, enabling him, getting used by him* time and time again,* really for the past sixteen years * that* he has been troubled adrift, the more

But this time, if he wishes to be on the street
I will be right there besides him,* im going to help him,* and will do my very best *to *help *him *feel *and *be *his *GREATEST*and*ELITE

I know, that he is looking at me now, and he knows about my mission, quest and goal, and master plan
And this time i see it in his eyes, *i feel it in his heart, *and since he began his*REVOLTNESS*, and *changed, *and* burned *every* bridge *time* and* time *again *with *his *family*this time i can see *he is listening to me*MAN

So step by positive step, i have to inspire him, guide him, mentor him, and bring him up, to his*very*BEST
Its going to be a challenge, and a test

I know he has his dreams in his heart and mind
I just have to help him to be focused step by positive step, one little thing at a time

He is seeing, and listening to me now, that we are the company that we chose to KEEP
And finally as now when once again he is on the*STREET*hus friends, associates, connections, have gotten him, used him, abused him,disrespected him, again in trouble so very*DEEP

So i know i have a mission, quest, goals and plan
And step by positive step, i am going to help guide my son, to bethe very BEST, stable, and able, squared away, the best that i *CAN

UNTIL THE LAST ARROW FLIES spoken word




How I long to hold strong and persevere
through life´s great and small troubles
and disturbances. I wish I had such strength´
courage of a warrior. But I think even the bravest,
most fierce and gallant warriors, must have at some
time stumbled or faltered from the weight of their armor.
Bore the wounds and scars from so many battles waged,
fought, won and lost, on the fields of conflict.

Who am I to imagine such courage´I who have fled
screaming in fear at even the thought of harm or loss?
I pray for such courage, for at least the courage to
keep moving in the face of life´s struggles and combats.
To stay on the field until the last arrow flies and the last
shield falls to the ground. To stand even to the end of things.

Few I believe, are blessed with such bravery, such valor,
of mind, heart and spirit. And yet history tells of them,
and the tombs are filled with the bones of their memories.
Perhaps I must be content with persevering with the
measure of courage and bravery which has been given me.
And a part of me wonders, if real courage is that which
remains on the field of conflict in spite of its limitations,
doubts, fears, until the last arrow flies, and the shield
falls to the ground.

´ RICHARD KEITH CARLTON

TOO OFTEN?




TOO OFTEN?

How often have you wished your life away?
Just like wishing Monday were a Friday,
Or hours were days and days were weeks
`Cause it`s the time ahead that your heart seeks.

.~.~.~ probably too often ~.~.~.

How often has folly been your trait?
Rushing into things `cause you couldn`t wait,
Not stopping to think what the outcome may be
As far as your nose is all you could see.

.~.~.~ Probably Too Often ~.~.~.

The tragedy of this is plain to see
Because life plays tricks on you and me,
In wishing time away for a special date
Old age came too soon and wisdom too late.

.~.~.~ Now I Bet You Wish You Hadn`t ~.~.~.
