I Choose Eternity, Not An Hour

Poem By Leslie Alexis

Love, spending an eternity with you
is more important than having you today;
My words need to be perfect. What I say
Will be your very first image of me.
It will be the starts our destiny.
The risk it bears, fuels my fears.
So I choose eternity, not an hour.
I cannot rely on seconds of pleasure
To make you my love, my bride, MY WIFE!
This time I will take my exit; to strengthen
My approach, I will be a storm in a friend.
I'll become a prince and make you my wife!
Today's lost is tomorrow gain
Though, full of pain my heart will walk away,
Because it knows that though you are reach,
its colors are unworthy... for now...

Your Choice

The howling wind that has no life,
Seeks my own with both blood and knife;
But in my God I will stand strong,
And if It think it’d win, it's dead wrong.

All Things Lovely

Lovely things begin with the sunshine.
Her rays illuminate faces
So that smiles can be seen.
Her love so bountiful

The Decaying Green

Walking along the path I heard leaves break
Becoming like dirt under the soles of my shoes.
They, in their millions, epitomized beauty
And life, but now they decompose and wane.

Be Safe, Angel

The wailing tunes of the long lost child.
Her father’s ways the cause of her cry.
So many lovely young ones wish to die.
Because they know not love, tears fill their eyes.

I Am Christ's

In Heaven, at the right hand of God I’ll sit,
I haven’t been there, but my eyes can see it.
Adorned in righteous robes, I’ll stand by the king.
I will see angels flying with their angelic wings.

Christmas (A Sestina)

Christmas is here, Jesus to the world brought peace
Everyone is rested as kids spend time with family
Kitchens are ablaze, wives creating good ol’ soul-food
Leslie and Destra, await their turn, under the mistletoe
