Excruciating Physical Pain

Shows that you’re vulnerable
Dampens your spirits
Cuts like a knife
Can start the flow of tears
Thinking becomes lessened
Lose interest of material things
Mind directed on the pain
What steps are taken next
Remembering your loved ones
Flashback to survival

Love Conquers All

I learned that
Through the struggles,
Through the pain.

One thing remains…

Love of God and others
Helps take it away,
Day by day.

War and Its Emotional Effects

these days my brother was mortally wounded in 1992…

“Can you briefly tell me what he said in the letter that is vital for us to know?  What do you remember as IMPORTANT in the words that he left for you?????”

in wounds on the battlefield lying wounded…

“You sound very hurt from this terrible war?  It must have been so bad”

worse than you think…

what about the novel that I possess

“tell me of your novel?”

this is unpublished novel about the war in bosnia

i want to publish in USA, need a publisher

“are you writing this?”

it is written in the war in war conditions

“Your brother left this behind you told me earlier, now I remember”

“Bosnia sounds like a great name for your country!”

bosnia sounds like carol

history says that bosnia was three

“Has it been published in your country?  To tell of the pain?”

Christmas so Bright (2012)

Christmas decorations all so bright
In the glistening snow of white
On this wintery cold night

It is an awesome, beautiful sight
When you see the blinking light
On this wintery cold night

Families gathered around so tight
For the meal to soon take plight
On this wintery cold night

Thoughts went to the Saviour’s might
The reason for peace and not to fight
On this wintery cold night

If All I Ask…

If all I ask is fairness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your happiness
It would be for your love
It would be for your future
It would be for your welfare

If all I ask is kindness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your care
It would be for your family
It would be for your society
It would be for your emotions

If all I ask is rightness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your safety
It would be for your strength
It would be for your freedom
It would be for your ability

If all I ask is justness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your peace
It would be for your progress
It would be for your mind
It would be for your soul

Our Life to Hold!

There was one time in my life when I felt depressed.  I remember it was around junior high.  You know what I did?
 I picked up the Bible.  And read His Word.

It gave me Hope
To want something and eventually it will be granted in time.

It gave me Thankfulness
To learn to be grateful in life and don’t take things for granted.

It gave me Strength
To know that in things we endure, we learn to pick ourselves up and keep going.
It gave me Wisdom
To know that knowledge is the beginning to understanding your life.

It gave me Love
To know the depth and meaning to the divine love that is given to us.

It gave me Faith
To believe and trust that all things are possible through Him.

It gave me Life
To learn that the Spirit enhances our desire to be all that we can be in life through knowing Him.
It gave me Courage
 To learn that when we go through difficulties in life; it builds our character.        
It gave me Prayer
To take a moment each day and reflect upon; and give thanks and praise to Him.

Carol Kappes: Author of Verse

This is creative, original work.
Most thoughts happen to appear
And is written down very quickly.

The mind does not memorize.
It’s random thinking at its best.
The verse shows emotions well.

The only reference most often
Used is the dictionary; for use of
Words to express the thought.

It tells of life experiences, and
Gives guidance to our well being;
A happiness we all seek to find.

Diplomatic towards humanity and
Voicing for a redesigned world;
In the years of the 21st century.

You have become very selfish
Only think of your own needs
You do not want to share
Think you’re better than others
Shows signs of disrespect
Do not live a Godly life
You want to fulfill your desires
You feast while others suffer
Decisions based on your choices
An effect that you want more
Your ego has become self-centered

Use your voice and concern
Show respect while there
Tell and report what’s wrong.

Use guidance in your actions
Never use force or violence
Find your reason to protest.

Your hurts are being heard
Mention where it is wronged
Emotions become overdriven.

Chaos develops when angry
Hell breaks loose wildly as
Understanding has been lost.

Bloodshed in the Middle East

This has been going on for 40 years or so
I was a young child listening to the news
I grew up in West.  This is still going on.
Where is the strong leadership and faith?
We all are humans; with intelligent minds.

I grew up believing in a peaceful world
Believing in caring for one another
Believing in helping each other
Believing in being neighborly
Believing in doing good; not evil.

I wish I could understand your thinking
What it is that carries in your thoughts?
I would not want generations to continue
In witnessing bloodshed into the future.
What is left for these people’s welfare?

If this were me; I’d become so sad and weary
I couldn’t have that smile on my face.
I would not see the happiness or even feel it
I would wonder what kind of world we live in.
I would be restless and agitated by what I see.

In order to stop this; there has to be a turn around.
A justice and dignity must prevail and win.
An extreme need of education and reform
A desire of love and kindness for everyone
And a lasting hope of our life in the world.

Feeling Sad...

Not feeling like myself
More like a depression.
Low feeling of sadness
Want to run from it all.

Nothing seems to go right
I’m taking the “fall.”
Feels like getting nowhere
Hopelessness is in sight.

It doesn’t seem to help
No matter how hard I try.
I did the best that I could
My mind will not escape this.

To know and understand His will
To give Him thanks and praise

To ask for your forgiveness

To receive His many blessings
To live a more peaceful life
To prepare you for eternity

Because of the religion

It’s Night and I Miss You

Sometimes as I lie in bed
I clasp both hands together.

Your hand will be in mine,
As I think about you now.

It has a special feeling as
If you’re lying next to me.

This helps my mind knowing
Your love is here with me.

This warms my heart till I
Fall asleep into the late night.

I said a little prayer for safety;
The day you travel back to me.

I’d Love to Snuggle With You...

In the car
            As we are driving to our latest vacation spot
In the theater
            As we are watching a romantic/adventure movie together
On the sofa
            As we communicate and talk about our day with each other
In the cave
            As we are walking through the mystery and stillness of the dark
In the stadium
            As we are watching our favorite sport and teams play
At the concert
            As it brings so much joy to hear music and to be here with you
In the camper
            As we make our evening meal together by moonlight and candle
At the amusement park
            As we take a ride on the roller coaster way up high
In the boat
            As we go for a cruise on the lake or the ocean
In the auditorium
            As we are watching the spectacular performance of the play
In the arena
            As we are watching the exciting horse show
At the bus/train station
            As we make the journey back home from the trip
At the hospital/office
            As we are both looking and holding our newborn/adopted child
On the bench
            As we enjoy the view at the beach, park, meadow, or woodlands.
By the fireplace
            As we feel the warmth of the glowing fire log and embers
In the bed
As we make intimate, passionate love to each other
