Masterpiece

One foot in front of the next, trying to tip the scale
Growing from the crack of a concrete, such a gory tale
Couples of dread cards I have being dealing with
Got adrift sometimes, somehow I still get a lift
Life's been working shifts on another stack
Pray I find a needle in a haystack
For am just a trooper who needs a better rope
Hopes on God to cut me a piece of soap.

A Wider Vision

 
After all these troubled and tumultuous times
And the craziness happening around the world
Weíve been able to stay calmly together
Even when things seemed so unsure

After all the ups and downs in recent years
Even when we thought it would be the end
We were able to pull ourselves through it
Even though we lost some dear friends

After all the frustrations and latent vexations
We managed to solve our problems with clarity
Growing older has given us a wider vision
A collective wisdom coupled with sincerity

After all the leaps of faith and tests of patience
We have achieved things we dreamed as youth
With logic and kindness there is more harmony
Even when thereís darkness we can see the truth

These things accumulated throughout the years
Families, friends, careers, all that makes us grateful
But after all the difficulties I think I can really feelÖ
A calm sense of peace for which I am truly thankful

Thankful for It All

There is laughter on the tip of the tongue.
I am thankful for the better memories in
The middle of all the uncertainty and
Chaos. I feel the strength of my lungs
As I am thankful for where I have been
And for the firmness of your hand
In mine as I navigate this treacherous
Thing called life. I am thankful I can
Call on those who are a part of my tribe.
I am thankful for my adventurous
Spirit as it is open to a different plan.
Mostly I am thankful for all good vibes.

Jer, I think one of the rules was no filth so a poem about your "dick" isnt really what I was looking for, if you could please delete that would be much appreciated.

A thanksgiving prayer

Each will find, his own festival ideal  
the joy to ride the heights, as on a Ferris Wheel  
to join the celebration, give respect and kneel  
remember all those gone before, to be revered

Gods silver service, hid behind the clouds  
the years of conflict that weaved the silken thread  
spilt the blood ,of those that lie beneath the shroud  
lost courage, where we owe a lasting debt  

Warm hands each crossed upon the heart  
days of anticipation, appreciation, just to partake †
gratitude for life's gifts, wishes all earmarked  
the precious icing is faith upon the cake  

The creature comforts we shower on our lives  
snug PJ's, pleasures drugs to suit all tastes  
burning hearth, warming food and friends arrived  
the Founding Fathers laid the blocks, to lay upon our plates †

Now the time, to say your grace in hearty thanks  
that you still have the gift of choice  
diversity is a rainbow, if we don't close our ranks  
just join our hands and sing with just one voice  

Be ours to graciously accept with prayer  
a table weighed with trust and hope displayed  
Thanksgivings truer meanings, when it's shared  
sustenance for the spirit, we all crave †

What Iím Thankful For

Bagpipes at funerals
And cut rate hotels
Wardrobe malfunctions
And the Liberty Bell
Infants in baskets
Crying at the front door
These are the things
That Iím thankful for

Fried shrimp and scallops
And snow days in June
Cocaine till sun up
And sleeping till noon
Moderate nudity
And porn thatís softcore
These are the things
That Iím thankful for

First dates and farewells
And breakfast in bed
A glass of champagne
That goes straight to your head
Erotic positions
You ainít tried before
These are the things
That Iím thankful for

Poets who dislike
What might seem uncouth
In their fearless pursuit
Of a sanitized truth
Hallmark card humans
That cannot ignore
All of these things
That Iím thankful for

Essence

 
Social media followers
upwards of a million
pale in comparison
to that one true friend

who's your type'st
when it comes to
telling it like it is
and without hesitation, hits
SEND

People in your life
being forthright
is a godsend

Having these eyes and arms
of mine opened to such a miracle
is a hard thing to express in words
but I'll give it a try

Always being honest with me
I'll be nothing less than
honest with you:

you're the Be All End All
for which most grateful am I
