Sharon Maree Smith Poems
Are You Rich Or Are You Poor? ? ...
Yes...I look around..and There is a lot I see
Many people living in a state of luxury
'Luxury? ' they say..'but alas..we are poor'
Complaining about this and that and..'now we need more'
Let us take the pharaohs..and the kings in ancient past
They had less comforts then..than in this century last
A feather was used to fan them..servants so very near
Today..press a button..cool air is instant here.
The 'help'..they were there..worked hard to make their food
Preparing what is pleasing to their taste and to their mood
Today it is the same..but they just sit ...
Be Still My Heart...
Be still my heart..lest your beating impair..
a single word from my Beloved's Heart..
Let not one word you take from me..
with the pounding your beats impart..
Be still now heart for you astound me..
with the trembling ways you do cause
Stop! I say..not a moments loss..
Stop beating..Shhh..now just pause!
