TONGUE-TIED? GOOD!

TONGUE-TIED?   GODD!

He thought he knew what to say,

His feelings would gave him away…

In the end

His tongue wouldn’t bend,

He escaped embarrassment that way!

FORBIDDEN THOUGHTS

FORBIDDEN THOUGHTS

 

They told him he’d fall and he did,

The attraction is so hard to rid…

Looking at her

Causes pleasure to stir,

Sometimes it is barely hid.

A sniff of her hair remembered,

Her wonderful curves embered…

But this too will pass,

He can’t have the lass–

But enjoyable are the feelings still rendered!

 

–Jonathan Caswell

 

DEPRESSION AND PROCRASTINATION

DEPRESSION AND PROCRASTINATION

 

Depression and procrastination,

Known as the vicious two…

One conquers feelings

And the other what not to do;

One feels less like doing things,

So easy to give up…

‘Til the piles and grime over time

In a vicious cycle erupt.

 

–Jonathan Caswell

 

 

A FUNNY CHRISTMAS

A FUNNY CHRISTMAS

This year is a funny Christmas
And he does not mean “ha-ha”…
Emotionally it’s been rocky,
With the surfacing of flaws.

He found illuminated
Mixed motives deep within…
Not always desirous to rid himself,
Of promptings to sin.

Prepared best he could for the Christ Child,
But found himself landing short…
Of feeling that grateful devotion
For being allowed in God’s court.

He can’t go just on feeling,
As many of his actions still are…
Like the Magi in the Story
He has to follow the Star.

Unlike New Year’s Resolutions,
In Christ, he starts new every day…
Applying spiritual solutions
‘Though oft-times he gets in the way.

He depends on his Lord’s mercy
To keep his repentance list short…
Confession, repentance as needed,
Reduces his soul being sport!
