SHIP OF LIFE!

Make this the passion of a lifetime
as if today is the beginning
and there is no yesterday:
Set out upon the ship of life
disciplined in mind and spirit,
fearless of peril and danger,
dauntless with faith and conviction,
certain of justice and in judgment,
relentless in duty and with honesty,
prepared for enterprise and challenge,
humble and merciful in victory,
and glorious and dignified in defeat!
Embrace each day with pride and gratitude
and honor yourself with happiness and joy.
Be different, be special, be a philosopher!
Set a goal, take a chance, strive for freedom!
And dare to try.

For this is the passion of a lifetime
as if tomorrow is today
and there is no turning back:
Set out upon the ship of life
loyal to wisdom and to truth,
true to love and to friendship,
brave before suffering and despair,
adamant against evil and corruption,
triumphant over anger and hate,
stronger than motive and emotion,
and meek and gentle with compassion!
Embrace each day with reverence and wonder
and reward yourself with laughter and beauty.
Be unique, be visionary, be a dreamer!
Set an example, strike a blow, strive for peace!
And dare to live.

Poetry to Inspire and Move You to Great Enterprise!

A BOOK OF VERSE TO INSPIRE YOU…

Β 
In a uniquely worded, structured, lexicon way, poetry should enlighten, entertain, invoke thought and emotion, excite and/or compel, or inspire the reader to feel and do something with his life and in the world. Here’s a poem I trust may do one or many of these with you!

TOMORROW
Β 
1
Let tomorrow call out–sweet and sublime!
And day bring forth its promise of reward!
Let the truth be heard–that now is the time:
To make peace from war and plowshare from sword!
(And achieve the dreams we should strive toward!)
Β 
The past is behind us, the past is gone,
But the future is our strongest belief!
Among all the stars ever wished upon,
Is one to purge us of vengeance and grief
(And steal us from hate like a martyred thief!)
Β 
A world divided…the world united:
In certain cause, and linked by common fate,
Has sworn…that all of us are invited
To share in the making of something great
(The choice is still ours–it’s never too late!)
Β 
2
Let us be amazed and let us be awed
By all the good we have previously done.
But with new hope and by the grace of God,
Yearn to accomplish beyond earth and sun
What has never been done by anyone!
Β 
For vanquish prejudice, distrust and pain!
We shall not survive heartless or mindless!
What there is of grief and darkness and rain
And despair and poverty and blindness,
We shall overcome with human kindness!
Β 
So join in life–and forget about death.
But give to life all that is worth giving!
Let love be the last word upon your breath,
That before time should seem unforgiving,
Bury the dead and get on with living.

WHERE IS THE POET IN YOU?

BESIDE THE SHORE

DAWN AND MORN

Her lips were soft and her heart frail;
love was delicate and fawning!
For a while it lived and couldn’t fail…
like the sand the sea
buries beauty at day’s early dawning.

Then seize a final breathless kiss;
death’s knowledge comes without warning!
As she who I forever, inconsolably miss…
like the sand the sea
on a cold and lonely ebb tide morning.

Faraway and Lost (Part 1)

sadness

PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR POETRY LOVING FRIENDS!

My services are always available to write you a personalized poem, the kind of poem you may wish to dedicate to someone you love; and a poem that is substantial and real verse. Or even a poem you wish to dedicate to someone you loved and lost. Like this poem of mine herewith.

FARAWAY AND LOST (PART 1)

So let us put away courage and cower on the floor,
In the ghastly instances when twilight is on the eve!
For tragedy lurks, and the wolf is always at the door,
And death is everywhere–no matter what you may believe!

For we always assume that we will stay young forever
And all the salient lives we cherish will never die,
And all the ties that bind us–no truth will ever sever,
Since there is nothing–good or evil–we cannot defy!

Then suddenly…the years become an incoherent tide
And we are caught wearing grief about us like a used glove,
While struggling to keep our feelings as strangers outside
Near all the kindred souls we need but need never think of!
(And I? Who seldom ever felt grief when a stranger died?
I, at last, now know how it feels to lose someone you love.)
