New Year??.......

Jenny Matlock

As this year winds down and comes to an end
a new year is chomping at the bit to began.
We will remember times both bad and good
and all the stories of our neighborhood.

We will remember all those loved ones past
and remind ourselves that life moves way too fast
to not tell those people that we love and adore
that we will be there for them forevermore.

So as the year kicks in and begins anew
we'll remember fondly those we knew
and with cherished memories will bid adeiu
to this last year leaves us and one begans anew

Holidays are for......

Jenny Matlock

The holidays are more to me
then Christmas lights
and festive presents under the tree

They're more than quality
time with the family
they're about the birth
of a man who gave his life for you and me

Everyone should remember
the greatest sacrifice
A father could ever make
to send his only son to give his life
and all the world's sin on his shoulder's take

Thank you lord for everyday
and allowing us this holiday
to string the lights that shine through the night
thank you for the presents under the tree
and quality time with friends and family
and the greatest sacrifice in history.

"F" is for......

Jenny Matlock

The world is filled with words, that are daily given
but one that should be said more is "you're forgiven"
We've all made mistakes along our chosen paths
But never enough to incur other's unending wraths.

I for one know that I'm not perfect or sin free
does that give the world the right to disdain me
I am who I am and wear my skin comfortably
because I know in my soul my lord's forgiven me

So let other's pass judgement as they walk pass by
I just keep walking forward, may even smile and say "hi"
for they are the one's watched intently by God's eye
For they can't forgive themselves and it makes him cry.

We need to let go and move on from the past
how long do we need to make our own suffering last
let's all try to remember that intentions were good
and that forgiven is not necessarily a bad word.

PILLS By Terry Krueger

So as I do "care and maintenance" with true conviction
I ask myself if these pills are my new addiction
Isn't it wrong that I follow doctors orders with dedication
if I fear a dependency on their very medication.

I don't want to cure one to contract a new disease
especially one that brings me to bagging on my knees
for one more round of pain medication
to dull the common sense of my street education.

That screams at my soul that I've become addicted
to the pills that come from prescriptions
from the people who are only trying to help me through
if only, if only they knew the awful truth.

That my body may be hard wired to addictions
from all drugs and not just prescriptions
that the solutions may be the problems
and all the meds in the world won't solve them.

I pray to God each and everyday
that the doctors may find another drug free way
to keep the monster at bay and me disease free
without the need for chemical dependency

I know they know what they're doing and in them I trust
for I am a novice to disease control and I simply must
go with what they say with unimpeded dedication
and continue to take my daily medication.

Wrote this several months ago but as they add more and more medications
I feel my body needs a medicine free vacation.
hope this inspires those who need it most
and someday in the future we'll all be able to toast
to a drug free life and a brighter future
full of love life and nurture.

"E" is for.....

Jenny Matlock

Emotion comes from many different sources
Depending how long or where the course is
Emotion can come from a great devotion
Feeling love for people who helped the healing
Well wishing those who didn't would go to hell
Love for unseen spirits living up above
Hate for the ones messing with your fate
Yes emotion is a tricky thing
One day you feel like nothing
the next you feel like a king
I am proud to say I'm an emotional man
because without them I wouldn't be who I am.
