Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

Oh! Where did it all go?

Disrespect!

Beware!

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

TIME

Speak not to me, of the many sins
on my slate, for I have begged for forgiveness!
Yet, the torture continues night after night.

The devil appears with his accusing red eyes,
and screams the vile and malignant  accusations
over and over again, until the first rays of morning light.

He repeatedly screams;
"It's not what you did, but what you failed to do!
You have wasted precious and irreplaceable time,
time and time again!
Now your time has run out! The things you could
have done, now go undone!"

"You are guilty of this sin, and for that I will return,
time and time again!"

Time is the most precious thing on this earth!
Waste not…want not!
