A CHRISTMAS STORY
A HEART OF GOLD

A KISS

A LITTLE GIRL

ALL GOOD CHRISTIANS

ALL IS WELL

A PARDON WAS GIVEN

AS LONG AS I LIVE

A SOLDIER'S DREAM

A TALK WITH GOD

CHRISTMAS GIFTS

CONDEMNED BY YOU

COULD IT BE

DO NOT FORCE THE WORDS

DO SPEAK OF THE THEM

DUNCES

EASIER UPON THE HEART

EVERY DAY

FALL IS COMING

FOLLOW THE ONE

FROM NOW ON

GENTLY

GIVE ME I PRAY

GOD’S ANSWER TO WHY

HALLELUJAH

HEAR THE ANCIENT WIND’S STORY

HE IS EVERY WHERE

I AM

I am what I am

INDEED IT IS TRUE

IN THE SHADOWS

I SAW IT, DID YOU?

I SHALL GO ON

IS THERE A CHANCE

IT IS ALL UP TO YOU

IT IS THE TIME

IT MAY BE SO

IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

LEST WE FORGET

LETTER NUMBER FOUR

LET NOT A MOMENT SLIP AWAY

LIKE THE BEAR

LOVE AND COMPASSION

MORE PRECIOUS THEN GOLD

MORNING HAS BROKEN

MY FRIEND

MY VISITOR

NATURE QUESTIONS

NIGHTMARE OF THE SOUL

OF CHRISTMAS SONGS

OF THE LIGHT

OH WHAT A NIGHT

ON THANKS GIVING DAY

OPEN FOR ME A DOOR

QUESTION OF THE DAY

Questions

QUIETLY THE TEMPTER CALLS

REGRETS OF THE DAY

SHE CRIED

SILENCE

SILENTLY THE SHADOWS WATCH

SNOWFLAKES

SOON

SPRING AND STRING TOGETHER

TAKE A WALK IN THE RAIN

TAKE TIME TO HEAR

THE FEELINGS OLD TOYS

THE MISTS OF TIME

THE NEW YEAR

THE TEMPTER

THE WORDS AND ME

THIS DAY OF SORROW

THIS PIECE OF LAND

THOUGHTS FROM A THOUGHT

Thus It Is Pray

TO BE BEGUILED or NOT TO BE

TO SMILE OR FROWN

TO SUCH AS I

To They Who Live

UNDER AN OLD OAK TREE

UNDER PAST CLOUDS

VALENTINE’S DAY

WHENEVER I STRAY

WHEN HE SPEAKS

WHERE DID IT GO

WHERE HAVE OUR IDEALS GONE

WHERE IS MY FAITH

WHO AM I

WHY A MEMORIAL DAY

WHY I WRITE AS I DO

WHY THERE IS NOTHING TO EAT

With All That It Brings

WITHOUT LOVE

YE OF THE SIN

YESTERDAY

YOUR WORDS YOU SPEAK


About the Author
This is what I believe is the best way to tell others about who or what I am. After giving the question on my Biography great thought and finding it hard to just write about me, I realized my answer to a prior question truly speaks more than anything else I could put down to be read.

On the site where I started leaving my poems inspired by the Bible there is a section requesting 100 interesting things about the person who leaves their words there. #18 there says "I believe in order to be happy first you must learn to smile" It is from this simple statement, that Bio, that I give you now, came to be, as I truly know no better way to describe the reasoning of what I am and why I write as I do. The poems in themselves have been about me and those who I know or have known. With that allow me to give you the answer I gave to a reader's statement of it is hard for me to do #18 in your list of 100 things. Note I have only completed 31 items on that list.

Why I smile

Learning to smile has always been difficult for many. At one time I too found this to be difficult. I myself have lived through things most have no desire to live through. I have made the decision to allow my own father to die in stead of placing him on a machine with a hope of his surviving. I accepted that I could not be near my mother as she died and yet I am able to look back on my life and say it has been good to me. I have felt the pain of loosing a child, dew to premature birth. I have pulled my Nephew from a tube of water in which I found him and started CPR to no avail. I have come within inches of my own death. I have lost many friends to death and yet I live on and find it is through the memories of the good times that even I can find a reason to smile. I believe there is no reason to fear; not death, for it brings you closer to the Lord. I believe it is best to “Live life to live, and love those who you can”! “No matter what anyone says, you are an important part of life”. So smile at all things that are worthy of smiling at and know you are worthy of having a smile. As for me I have lived as a soldier a medic an Infantry man and even a generator mechanic. I have spent countless hours in the cold doing my duty there. I have worked with the elderly and watched their struggles of each day. I have seen the change that comes over them, when they know the Lord has sent for them. I know the feelings of loss, hope, love, desire, and pain. I tend to see and hear what many it seems fail to see or hear, and it is through this that I am what I am. It is also here that the Words and me have come together. It is also why I write as I do.

Here also you will find two more poems. Both of which speak of me. I am what I am and the other is Why I write as I do. May you and all who reads them enjoy them knowing a bit more about where they come from.


I am what I am
WHY I WRITE AS I DO
