Tag Archives: stand your ground

FROM A CHARACTER WHO BLOGS POETRY…!

Advice from an “old man”

Don’t let the crowd command…

You to produce

A poor excuse,

But pick your ground and stand!

Having “LIKES” for posts is nice,

But some posts cut a deep slice…

Or folks bored

With that kind of sword,

Won’t be caught thinking twice!

Many older posts,

Look like towns with ghosts…

Not a LIKE

Or comment strike,

So much for a poet’s boasts!

–Jonathan Caswell

LIKE MEN OF VALOR IN THE FIELD

Like men of valor stand,

Only in the Lord’s command…

Be not swayed

If better paid,

And pumped up so you feel grand!

Samson did not doubt

Hearing Philistine war shout…

With jawbone of an ass

They would not pass

If he was about.

Hold your ground with valor,

Not frightened by worldly palor…

The Lord God fights

For you His lights,

You stand firm and love them shower!

–Jonathan Caswell
