    A Passing

    Goodbye, my dearest friend, and take with you,
    My wondrous kinship so profoundly laid,
    For I will never see again this hue,
    Like vibrant colours washed away, they fade,
    And leave behind the remnants so devoid,
    Of joy and merrymaking this I tear,
    In hopes of bringing back our times enjoyed,
    And casting out the darkness filled with drear,
    Which Heaven lifted up from Mother Earth,
    And gave, anewed, a life abundant too,
    That you may live forever free from dearth,
    For He presents the greatest treasure true;
    And so, do not be worried over me,
    Instead, depart from here detached and free.

    Here is a sonnet I tried:

    Inner Peace

    Forgive my wrongdoings here and let them go,
    For I did not commit myself to act,
    But rather, I, confused, could not control,
    My thoughts and actions, left my body wrecked,
    In such a poor state that it took a toll,
    On what was once considered healthy then,
    As such, my sorrow took the better boll,
    And so, this left my heart in pieces- ten;
    Within the depths of my existence cold,
    There lies a string of hope that fills my mind,
    That I am bent on turning into gold,
    And this may very well be change I find,
    For peace and rhyme are coupled, so alike:
    A hairbreadth difference will expose dislike.

    There is only one camel on the ark
    only one camel on the ark
    only one camel on the ark
    but that camel's got two humps.

    Gone Are The Days

    Gone are the days when children played,
    So happily, with no regrets,
    All were so contented, and none dismayed,
    How joyful it was, to be rid of threats!

    Gone are the days when we could chat,
    While sitting around the fireplace,
    Not having to worry about this or that,
    Just listening to fairytales- all of which was commonplace.

    Gone are the days when we had smiles,
    Not without excitement,
    We were infused with playful wiles,
    That time- so abundant- seemed almost nonexistent.

    Gone are the days when children could rest,
    Not bearing any fear or anxiety,
    All were so free from stress:
    Life as it was, in our society.

    God has Priorities

    I was thinking about Noah’s ark the other day.
    No, not the implausibility of the whole thing.
    I was thinking about the Great Flood that God created.
    Specifically, I was thinking about what people were
    thinking and saying as the flood waters rose. They
    were probably shouting and screaming, “Help! Save us! ”
    That was back in the days when God talked a lot - you
    know, before he pretty much clammed up. So when
    everyone was scared and beseeching him for help, he
    probably just said, “Nope.”

    And then he watched them drown.
    Just like he watches people getting murdered and kids
    getting raped, and doesn’t do anything about it. When
    was the last time you heard about a guy getting struck
    down by lighting while he was raping a kid?Never.
    And when the kids call out to him for help, his silence
    and inaction are the same thing as saying, “Nope.”

    And yet football players regularly get down on a knee
    and cross themselves after they score a touchdown.
    So God helps people in sporting events but doesn’t help
    kids getting raped. I’m glad he has his priorities straight.
