To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY



The weather is hot, and then it is cold.
The day is too bright. The night’s a black hole.

From Abel and Cain, from good and from bad,
today's children often make their parents sad.

Couples pout or fight. Some part. Some thrive.
Follow Satan or God. Give up or survive.

The political scene ... the people rage.
Some are kind. Some are cruel.
Some are dumb. Some are sage.

So the world’s gone crazy? It’s always been this way.
From Adam and Eve until today.

Some wring their hands and whine and moan,
but I know I am not alone.
Though I'm here on earth, it's not my home.
When things aren't perfect, and don't go my way,
I'll keep on doing what I can ...
ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY.

It gets tiresome, hearing how bad things are.
I'm thankful for all I have today.
I can't change most things, not in any great way,
so I'll do what I can ...
ALL I CAN DO … IS PRAY.

Can you do more? Does crying help?
Stand and scream? Hide on some shelf?
What more can you do? What more can you say?
Try to stay calm. There’s help for today.
I’m confident my God is on the way.
I’ll keep doing what I can …
ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY.
ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY.

(You can put those 6 words anywhere you want to, after every line if you want to.)
