This is mom, tired and worn, that waved at the neighbor, who blew the car horn, that spooked the dad, tattered and torn, that fed the baby, dressed adorn, that knocked the bowl, filled with cream corn, that splattered the boy, that scared the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house, that mom cleaned.

TY's Quest

He wanted to go,
he didn't know the reason why.
He just knew he had to go,
before he would die.
He didn't understand,
all the feelings he had inside.
He had to go,
for the dream he had in mind.
He didn't tell anyone,
where he was going to be.
He said to everyone,
it was time for him to leave.
He moved to a city,
with no friends in town.
Searching for something,
he had no idea it was around.
He prayed to Almighty God, 
every day and every night.
And found some peace,
when he saw the light.
He worked so hard,
and never took time to pray.
He realized God was there,
to help him on his way.
He's back with a new life,
all because he prayed.
He's glad he took the trip,
cause now he is saved.

It's Not Over



When troubles and burdens come your way.
It's easy to get down and give up today.
You get discouraged, you made a mistake.
You failed again, with so much at stake.
Unfortunately, times can be tough.
The road you take, can be rough.
If you have a will, and the desire.
You can keep going, with full of fire.
You'll find good times are ahead.
So focus on these words instead.
You're precious life did not end.
Today, you can still try again.
