7-12-14 My Friend


Though troubled times may come to try your soul,

Or enemies with hatred apprehend;

If grief comes down and seems to take control,

You know that I will always be your friend.

The winds of change sometimes are harsh and cold,

With bitter nights when loneliness descend;

When strife and pain surround to scream and scold,

Just think of me and I’ll be there, my friend.

Adversity comes quick and then moves slow

And never seems to leave or show an end;

It’s times like these you know just where to go,

I’m here for you my brother and my friend.

The love we share endures through trial or trends;

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends.


A friend loves at all times,

and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 17:17


6-28-14 Dirge #15: Traitors


“You will find Jesus in Gethsemane,” Judas hissed to those who’d have Christ dead;

The Son of Destruction had just sealed his fate with a traitorous mark on his head.

Beware, hellish snake, your soul is at stake!

Betray not your friends, with their trust you depend.

If you turn on them, hearts will soon break!

“I have a secret I’ll share with you now,” the girl whispered in your rival’s ear;

She stabbed your back with malicious intent, this good friend that you once held so dear.

Beware, for a reason you’ll soon commit treason!

A secret entrusted should be kept and not busted.

Give it up and get Hell for all seasons!

“They hide their money in that wooden box,” shared the worker to his thieving friend;

For this information his boss was soon robbed; Heaven’s judgment will thus be his end.

Go away, sinful traitor, you sneaky trust hater!

Your treacherous deeds fulfils Satan’s needs.

Your reward will come sooner or later!

Forgiveness can come if your heart is sincere, so repent and give Jesus your all.

He’ll never betray you, be certain of that; He can turn you from Saul to like Paul.

Give God your heart; He will never depart.

Be loyal and true; put your trust in Christ, too!


1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.

2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,

brutal, without love for what is good,

4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures

rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.

Avoid these people!”


2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
