Dwayne Bailey Poems
Chains Of Addiction
Breaking the chains of addiction, are never easy at best; For these chains are wrapped all around our thinking, alwys putting us to the test.
Gas Prices Are Killing Me
Gas prices are killing me, taking so much of my pay; So I can have just the basics, like getting to work each day.
Christmas Wish List
What do I want for Christmas? I will see if I can explain; It's really nothing fancy, but it's also nothing plain.
Pitch black outside, ten below zero, Man I am freezing cold; My age is starting to creep up on me, and boy am I feeling old.
Looking back on 2007, as the final seconds are ticking away; I realize how lucky I am to be alive, and how blessed in heart I feel today.
As I Step Back
As I step back and evaluate my life, i notice things that once were hid; I notice the mean nasty things I'd said, the ugliness of things I did. I notice that when I was mad at my God, my heart became bitter and cold; As I step back and look at my life, I watch hardships as they unfold.
Does it really matter what your religion is; Or the color of your skin? What church you attend on sunday, or the neighborhood you live in?
March its seems for now, is how long we are going to wait; Before we get to know, what is the health, and my daughters fate.
As We Become Old
Life it feels is closing in, maybe Im close, to the bitter sweet end; I truely feel I, am getting quite old, I find myself tenitive, where I used to be bold.
Life Of Jesus Christ
Back, quite a few years ago, lived a man named Jesus Christ; He was'nt mean and rough, he wasnt full of gruff, all he had to offer was life;
You Will Always Have A Friend In Me;
So I guess this is goodbye; Divorce papers in hand; Our seperation is final, alone I now must stand. This brings to me no joy, my heart is heavy with sorrow; How will I stand today? How will I face tomorrow?
Sweet Jesus Sweet Jesus
Sweet Jesus sweet Jesus, the most precious name I know; His love and mercy follows me, where ever in life I go.
When two people say I do, they become apart of another family; Often times the transitions hard, and there is hostility.
As I Age
When I was young, I thought as a child, as I grew my perspective changed; Now Im cold where I used to be loving; my priorities have been rearanged.
Users Are Losers
Users are losers for how can you win,
high on drugs all the time?
For drugs effect not only your body
but also your heart and mind.
They effect your thinking they effect your love
they effect every part of your life;
They never bring lasting joy or peace
but rather envy and strife!
So next time you feel you want to get high
