Alexander Beebe Quotes

  • '''I am prone to gravitate toward my own disappointment than
    risk disappointing others. That is why I believe in God.
    I am better suited to handle the absence of His existence,
    than risk His disappointment and sadness that I never believed.'''

Best Poem of Alexander Beebe

Culture Wars

A family’s journey in a wagon, heading West to see the sights.
Three young children on this passage, two of which are prone to fight.
Never hurting one another, just a way to blow some steam.
Cross the dessert, over mountains, through the forest and up the streams.

At an age where girls grow tired with the foolishness of boys
Sits a sister reading novels trying to ignore the noise.
The miles they pass like grains of sand never to expire.
Participation on this trip was not her grand desire.

Like wagon trains that passed before, ambient conditions ripe.
The air...

Painted Eagles

The sun doth rise while morning dew clings to blades of grass,
the tarmac full of painted eagles waiting for their pass.
Like birds of prey on the wire eager to devour,
the sky their highway between the earth and the heaven’s power.

The vapor trails their fleeting sign that once they passed this way,
to yonder sights of things below that gaze upon their wings.
The clouds appear as mountaintops or foam on raging seas,
horizons that appear so close continue to deceive.
