When We Die

They say I am too low,

I say they are too high.

One thing is certain.

The grave is waiting,

When we die.

Shifting Sands

2014 Albert Moyer, Jr.

For the sands are shifting

In an incomprehensible way.

Our moral fabric stripped away.

People talk, walk, and wonder,

” Why are people suffering?”

They cry in agony from the pain.

Their salaries are low,

And the violence is high.

Yet they fail to look up,

And humble themselves to the most high.

For the reprobate mind,

Their eyes are blind.

For they will never see the signs.

They run crazy like ants,

From a mound that has been kicked,

Listening to false prophets,

Only to be tricked.

For their pain is real,

It cannot be denied.

Yet it could all change,

If they ask the Lord,

To be on their side.

In her 20’s she was quite the flame

Her black book had many men’s names

She ate the finest food and caviar

And traveled to lands very far

She tossed her friends about like dirty laundry

And many left because they didn’t think it was funny

But one day all things started to change

She realized she was 40 and had no game.

Now as time passed her value declined

Because she had no more looks

And not much in her mind

Love she wanted so desperately

But it was killed by her vanity

A party is available. They are sure to come.

They want what you have, but share with no one.

They want your ear, as if you’re Dr. Phil,

Yet they will not help you, even if you are ill.

Their time bank is full, so full of themselves,

That when you ask for a little, you get shelved.

They smile and say, ” How wonderful you are.”

Yet privately describe you, as if you are tar.

They do their best to zap the good from you,

And leave your feeling, as if you have the flu.

You need their help, but when the time comes,

They leave you dry, so they can have fun.

When you confront them about how you feel,

These people will scream, ” No big deal. “

So when they fail to listen, it is time to break.

There is no need for toxic relations for heaven’s sake.

I Wonder

I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder,

Where you are?

Sometimes I remember,

How you felt.

Sometimes I long,

To kiss you again.

Sometimes I see you,

In my dreams.

Sometimes I ask myself,

Why did we part?

Sometimes I think,

Will our paths cross again?

Sometimes the mind wanders,

And while it wanders,

I wonder.

It Is Your Fault!

It Is Your Fault!

I sit and do nothing.

It is your fault.

I can’t find a job.

It is your fault,

The government will not help me.

It is your fault.

My neighborhood sucks.

It is your fault.

My poverty is my struggle.

It is your fault.

I don’t care about anything.

It is your fault,

I hate your God.

It is your fault.

So tell me angry person.

What is your fault?

My Momma

A free verse poem dedicated to animals

My momma loves me.

My momma cares for me.

My momma feeds me.

My momma doesn’t diet.

My momma doesn’t need drugs.

My momma isn’t fashionable.

My momma doesn’t need electronics.

My momma knows where I am.

My momma’s family is close by.

My momma says that perhaps

Mankind can learn from her,

and all the other animals, because

The only things she fears is them.

The destruction they cause in

The environment and the world.

My momma says mankind is supposed

To be higher order thinkers, but

The animals seem to be smarter.

My momma says that mankind is suffering

because of their choices.

If only mankind could learn from

My momma.


Magical Woman

Magical Woman

Her hair is dark

Her eyes brown

She’s fabulous

To be around

Her skin is smooth

And her lips full

The brain she has

Is her best tool

When your’re down

She’ll lift you  up

Inside you will bubble

Like Seven-Up

When she’s close

She feels so warm

Inside of me

I feel transformed

She’s a magical woman

That I know

For in my veins

Her love flows

Sweet Tooth

Lollipop sweetness

Leaves me so breathless

Midget sweet flavorful roll

Tootsie you pleasure my soul

Kit Kat scrumptious

Skittles fruity sweet

Kisses can’t be beat

Snickers caramel peanut

The Almond Joy coconut

M & M’s a treat

Peanut Butter Cups

Candy I worship

The stars are up Milky Way

Whopper malt balls save the day

Sweet tooths they gossip
