Poem: If A Promise

If A Promise

I feel the print of steps I've chosen
A bridge that seeks my God
A path of thorns and thickets forming
Reveals a worn facade

The road can muddy within a flash
'Till feet might weigh a ton
Is the promised land before me now
And God I am your son

While legs grow sore and knees are aching
A thirsting burns my throat
Elusive answers upon the tongue
I swallow words that choke

A million angels will bare a salve
For untold, unknown sin
The darkened sky a looming struggle
Fight demons from within

A brilliant light feeds promised hunger
'Gainst fury of a storm
Countless sighs in timeless breathing
The load that life has borne

Poem: Dubya


Increasingly isolated,
A man sits alone stubbornly.
The fool, unable to see things.
As a world gains new clarity,
He marches forward, losing steps.
