don’t you weep

when times are bad, and you feel down…

when times are bad, and you feel down…

don’t you weep!

when you feel alone, and there’s no one around…

don’t you weep!

when the love of your life, has moved on…

don’t you weep!

when someone dear, passes on…

don’t you weep!

when strangers criticize, the way you look…

don’t you weep!

when your family gives, less than they took…

don’t you weep!

when you want to do right, but you do everything wrong…

don’t you weep!

when god fills your mind, heart, body and soul…

weep child weep!

poem written 2001 & art by melody cole

silently i sit

silently i sit

eyes damp

lips weak

trying to capture inspiration before time has run out

amazingly thirty years have not rung the chime of fulfillment

each thought momentarily elapses into a distant memory

every muscle in my body tends to be useless

silently i sit

eyes damp

lips weak

‘o

my art is from my heart it’s truly from my soul implanted like a seed fertilized from birth o

my art is from my heart

it’s truly from my soul

implanted like a seed

fertilized from birth ‘o

god is the gardener

my tears are the water

often over cared for

then falling into drought ‘o

raked leaves in the winter

shoveled snow in the fall

kept digging for the truth

where ancient roots lie ‘o

discovered who i am

from what god has shown me

i am who i be

because his love got mercy ‘o
