Dorothy Kardas, Psy.D. Th.D. Poems
To the city of the living Deity Avoiding trace of impiety uglification For reverence of liberally given benefits and edification Guarding as a myrmidon the prize of salvation
Eyes Invisible watching, Spirit Supreme groaning... Heart Almighty mourning... While supporters of unborn murder
(Dedicated to in vitro fertilization victims...) I - the tiny embryo defiantly -
Now that you arrived in the afterlife, What was your earned income? Hope you did not see the ugliness
Bravery Inspiring? !
Shifting dust Of subjective thoughts: Irrationalities married As rocklike realities!
Oh, the tragedy of the human race Without the sway and sublimity of grace... Gnawing at the roots in slaveries of sin,
Inflicting incurable wounds That are ever 'hopeless' to heal Backing abominable crimes, Which they would have cursed
To fail to set sights on the good which is highest What debasing, and mortifying gamble Is it not evil itself? I get the feeling of sadness, my Lord...
Harbor of Refuge
Some choose dying out and murder over being Shun the goal of truth - Sacred dogma and relation Between Creator and creation; Trust more self than saintly rule,
As an owl picked out the fixed Star A break in the clouds, a ray of hope Washing her hands of muddled, Many-sided habit of mind
Guard of a Warrior
Union with the traitor and foe of God Is hard to set right and remedy, As in all times, places and affairs The hellish foes set their snares.
No taste of victory when lacking self-diminution - Self-deflation invites soul-searching and contrition. No armor of courage without harvest of self-sacrifice No loyal devotion while lacking the gem of selfless devotion
Losing sight of the consequences and cost (Couldn't care less...) For the voiceless who need mercy the most... Since political course and run are at stake
Barren are the hands of the one who is unseeing, While mighty is the brain And mighty are the hands of the one whose heart Is in tears and filled with pity for all,

To the city of the living Deity
Avoiding trace of impiety uglification
For reverence of liberally given benefits and edification
Guarding as a myrmidon the prize of salvation
To the city of the living God
To reach this Lasting Homeland,
Still, a good deal is missing my Lord.
To the city of the living Divinity
Shunning vice, cultivating virtue -
The desire for the charm of sanctity
For the regard of freely bestowed profusion of graces
To safely reach the Holiest of Places
To the city of the living Deity
Shielding as a stout soldier 'all' with ...
