Poetry Break: Rev. Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin

By: Rev. Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin

 

____

We are Beasts

 

Two-legged

and four-legged

beasts!

We all want

the same things:

food, love, protection,

shelter,

and to protect our families.

We are vicious, loving, ferocious

Beasts!

Leave our family alone

or pay the price

of the pack.

Remember

we are beasts!

 

 

The Wild

 

She whispers to me,

so only I can hear;

she looks at me so that

only I can see her.

Her beauty

comes from deep

within her soul,

far from her ancestors,

yet still I can see the moon

reflecting in her stare.

She is wolf, dog, friend!

I am the alpha – pack leader.

I hear her 

whispers in the wind

and the call of her

ancestors,

the call of the wild

dancing on the mountains.

We are all

one voice,

when we learn

to listen to

the pulse

of love.

The call of the wild…

 

Between Yesterday and Tomorrow…

 

Old faces ravaged by broken dreams,

crooked spines from carrying heavy burdens from day to day and year to year.

They waited, but tomorrow never came; yesterday has past and passed.

Broken hearts don’t know that they’re broken until they find a place in time somewhere between yesterday and tomorrow.

Where dreams are like the faces of children, innocent and pristine.

Where love shines like the sun and life is like fine wine.

Just another broken dream on an old and wrinkled face until yesterday brings tomorrow…
