 I felt driven to share some of my pieces of poetry as I prepare to publish my fourth book of poetry, Words from the Underground.  I find these to be pieces that will set the tone for my most secular poetry work that I have done to date.  These words are words from my heart based upon what I have seen, heard and even experienced in ministry, service and just plain life.  They open the vast world of the urban streets that remain unknown to many who may never venture into such places otherwise.  May God bless you.

Missing Motivators

 

I counted them on my fingers.

I counted them one by one.

I counted them out loud

I counted them one by one.

I counted them until I was done.

I counted them and counted on them,

But now I find none.

 

The Beauty in the Beast

 

The beauty in the beast

Remains hidden deep within.

The beauty rests inside.

It is a mystery of its beauty

Lives beyond normal sight.

It is the beauty of the beast

That rarely is seen.

To know its beauty is

To know the beast.

Both of these poems will be available in my upcoming summer release, “Words from the Underground.”
