Your tie; certainly caught my eye.
As I walked in the room and seen you.

Your looks, stature, and features just
Made me want to walk towards you.

Your presence was soon overshadowed
As I headed into your direction.

Your demeanor made my heart rise
As I introduced myself to you.

Your response upon my questions took
A whole new meaning of networking.

A New Year: 2019

Celebrations, parties, and fireworks
Lit up at the strike of midnight.
A new year is now dawning-
Awakening at the early light.

Cheers, champagne, and joy
Came bursting forth in the morn.
The past year went into history
And the new year is now steadfast.

Fascinating, majestic, and thrilling
Is the feeling of elation around us,
As the confetti drops down and
The horns ring in another year.

We Live, We Die

By the time I have gained my
Wisdom of this world; I only
Have a few years left of it.

“You have a lot of time left to enjoy
Your life by enlightening others.
We need a voice of conscious.”

Thanks…never heard such a sweet

{After I had written this verse; what
Came to my mind was the line written
By William Shakespeare in Romeo and
Juliet, “Parting is such sweet sorrow
That I shall say good night till it be

Attach Yourself to Christ

Think about what you attach yourself to:

Family, friends, lovers
Education, opportunities
Career, jobs, volunteer
Travel, food, hobbies
Pets, companions, groups
Materialism, gadgets
Entertainment, sports
Substance abuse, addiction

Attach yourself to the birth/life of Christ
And find a deeper meaning in your life.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Our First Lady

Our beautiful First Lady of America
Demonstrates class and fashion style.

More women need to wear dresses as
This creates feminine manners and respect.

She also is spending time with the children
Because it is all parts of the woman’s role.

Our beautiful First Lady of America
Demonstrates love and strength in style.

Review of My Book (Preview) By Maple Lane Books

The Preface of the book does a good job at introducing the reader to your author profile, as well as explaining the kind of style and voice that you write in. The world is a complicated place, and allowing your audience to discover how you see it through the written word is something that will allow people to connect with your work.

From the Table of Contents which showcase the different verses being titled with one word, we get a sense for the kind of material that we will discover within. The poems included within, or the verse, as you describe them, cover all different kinds of topics that readers from all different backgrounds, ages, and professions will be able to connect with.

Poetry is such a universal form of expression, and you’ve done a good job of putting together this collection that offers up a little bit of something for everyone.

Look Out For Yourself!

Don’t expect others to help you out
Don’t assume things will be alright
Don’t equate that people think like you
Don’t imagine life will always be the same
Don’t waste your hard work earnings
Don’t only plan for today, but also the future
Don’t overlook the talents within you
Don’t deny your natural curiosity
Don’t lose hope when things go wrong
Don’t stop learning in order to understand
Don’t neglect the health of your body
Don’t lie, cheat and try to get away with it
Don’t assume you have all the answers

Just become the person you are meant to be.

Christ's Birth

I know what it was like... just
Hearing about the Christ child.

Hearing the Nativity story
Hearing the songs written and sung
Hearing the Scriptures in the Bible
Hearing the people talk about Him

But once He has come to you; you
Will fully understand and have the
Wisdom of His peace and love.

It is eternal and stays with you in
Your heart, mind, soul and strength.

Christ shall reign forevermore. Amen
