School

when you're still in school,
gadgets are cool, sleep's for fools
and Superman rules


Love and chance

I pray for a day,
when I'm whisked away, to a
place of love and chance


Life

life is like a bud,
constantly unfolding, and
always revealing yet


Understanding God

understanding God's
not knowledge, but attitude,
a way of learning


Reform

political re-
form into a better de-
formed, our government

Listening

listeners, beware
unwise sayings-- that's pleasure.
be tough, you know it


Grace

admit that I'm wrong--
the great mystery of grace--
don't know everything


Ethics

with new ethics laws,
the legislature's ethics
outlook is new highs

Peace

to be at peace is...
to love the unloveable,
to enjoy it all

Worldliness

worldliness is not
enjoying the here and now
it's taking what's sought

Share

this is beautiful...
I share it with my neighbor...
no one owns it all...

Beautiful

to be beautiful.
to be at peace with the Lord.
to love at all cost.

Forever

a light that shines now
shines a light for forever
forever's present

Living

even though I live
I live in the present now
living changes now

Now

according to now
I have great understanding
only time changes

Time now

time changes all things
we are always in the now
time changes the now

Time changes

pictures always change
change always happens in time
time changes pictures

Build trust

you have to build trust...
loyalty doesn't apply...
honest openness

The journey

All push to the brink
The brink totters on a cliff
A cliff can't end it

Articulate

articulate now!
honesty pulls openness
info pulls data

Its easy

you have forgotten
check yes or no, good or bad
easier that way ...

Deregulation

deregulation
commerce infatuation
public taxation

Issues

trust who you vote for
to win the race for office
and lose the issues

Power

fighting against them
denies the topic at hand
rendering power

Nature

oil stinks to heaven
does this explain wildcatting
profit not nature?

Assumptions

assuming I don't,
then this poem is over,
reveal forbidden

Book condition

Books unopened "fine"?
Books with markings and tears "good"?
Books should be fine read!

Tell me

readily submit:
tell me what is forbidden,
it's censors' anger

Prepare

Schools are for the wise.
You can't expect to learn much
if you aren't prepared.

Fight

life will be hopeless
when using a steel balloon
is your only fight

Remember

if it is music,
your ears are doing just fine,
your brain remembers.

Help

extraordinary
help is ever so ready
crisis abuses
