I WHO HAVE NO ONE


I who have no one, no one at all
Envy others as in love they fall.
Sleepless nights, with inward burning,
Feeling hopeless, tossing and turning.

Lord please forgive the fool Iíve been
Hiding from goodness in the shadows of sin.
I humbly pray to heaven in space
For one more chance to regain my grace.

Iíve lived my years indulging myself
Leaving decency and principle on the shelf.
Now that your light shines on my face
I pray for forgiveness in shame and disgrace.

All I ask is your life mate for me
And I pledge to become all I can be.
A soul without love is empty and void
No wonder so many become destroyed.

Outside my window thereís the thunder of rain
And the haunting sound of a far away train.
I feel your presence as I silently cry
For someone to love before I die.


By Tom Zart


SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF WORLD WAR III


Our sons and daughters serve in harms way
To defend our way of life.
Some are students, some grandparents,
Many a husband or wife.

They face great odds without complaint
Gambling life and limb for little pay.
So far away from all they love
Fight our soldiers for whom we pray.

The plotters and planners of Americaís doom
pledge to murder and maim all they can.
From early childhood they are taught
To kill is to become a man.

They exploit their young as weapons of choice
Teaching in heaven, virgins will await.
Destroying lives along with their own
To learn of their falsehoods too late.

The fearful cry we must submit.
And find a way to soothe them.
Where defenders worry if we stand down
The future for America is grim.

Nowís not the time to fight one another
Or kiss our enemyís cheek.
All through history it remains the same
The strong enslave the weak.

May God continue to bless America
Refusing evil, the upper hand.
Itís up to us to stay resolute
Defending the liberty of Man.

Thank you so much for your kind words of support,

Tom Zart

FORMIDABLE FOE


America is the birthday cake of earth,
As the ants march from every direction.
Thank God for all who have sworn to defend her,
Serving with love, honor, pride, and affection.

Since the first day George Washington marched off to war,
There have been those who have wished our demise.
Their hatred, fueled by jealousy and greed,
Was defeated by our brave and the wise.

Once again, we must face a formidable foe,
Who have pledged by their God to destroy us all
Misusing their faith as an excuse to kill,
As for a worldwide jihad, their leaders call.

Some say we should try to appease them,
For if we resist, theyíll hate us even more.
But the David's among us shall cast our stones,
Defeating them, as it was done before.

Your first poem brought to heart much thankfulness as I reflected on answered prayer in my own life.


Though many views on war are currently expressed and debated, as it should be, I thought that your second poem offered a very thoughtful and needful support for our Sons and Daughters of war.

Well Done.

-Bob

Thanks Rae for your wonderful reply.

SOLDIER FOR THE LORD


I'm a soldier for the Lord
who's been up and who's been down,
Though while on the battlefield,
I have never turned around.

I face more than flesh and blood,
With the devil's evil hoard.
But they shall not steal my soul.
For I swing my Lord's swift sword.

I wear all of God's armor;
With helmet, breastplate and shield.
As Satanís arrows fly by
From his archers of the field.

The devil casts his dark net
Over any he may charm.
Heíll lead the from salvation,
With has hands upon their arm.

I battle evil daily,
And I pray that youíll join me.
We're not alone in this world,
For we're loved and watched by Thee.
