Our God Knows What's Right

Dire warnings to the doubters
are good tidings to believers -
sweet fruits to the truthful
are sour apples to deceivers

Blessed are those of honesty -
cursed are those who love lies!
Condemned, those who deny Christ -
with angels, righteous flies

The rich, the vain and powerful
will be reduced to weak!
The squandered chances they once had
are given to the meek

The soulless never gave a damn -
their hearts, as cold, hard steel!
Never trusted God (I AM)
chose not, with Love, to feel

The Holy will ascend to life -
the wicked, pay sin's cost!
If they choose not to repent,
forgiveness will be lost

I'm so glad that God's Perfect -
He knows, for all, what's best!
All doubts of infallible,
by Him, are put to rest

- Bill Costello (Nov. 22nd, 2014)

Be you as little children
and BELIEVE with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with every fiber of your being -
He (the Lord God, I AM)
will not disappoint you

Thoughts of Remorse and Hope

I still Love you -
I'll always care!
Each day, for us,
I say a prayer

I dream of you -
hope you dream, too.
We'll overcome
all we've been through

The road we tread
is of remorse -
hindsight perceived
a different course

A Love, better,
let's try to lend
and hope for joy
at life's next bend

I hope we'll be,
for Love, much more
than any 'love'
we were before

Cruel lessons, learned -
with pain, we've paid
for all of Love's
mistakes we've made

I wish I could
bear all your strife,
so you could heal
and live Love's life

Light of the Lord (again, thank God)

It's always darkest
before dawn -
before daybreak, it's black!
Hopes and dreams,
at lowest ebb -
faith, totally, we lack!

Then, when it seems
that all is lost,
light's rays of hope, appear -
just when you think
things will get worse,
clouds of doubt, disappear

Those of us,
lame in spirit,
Christ said that we are blessed!
He tests the weak -
His Strength, we seek -
let flaws, all, be confessed

We chose ourselves -
God hid His Light -
since Eden, we've been lost!
Until Christ,
for our sins, paid -
for Light He brought, was crossed

God's Light, again,
shines in this world -
Holy, sent from above!
The Grace the Lord
reveals to us,
is from His Heart of Love

My Delilah

I, like Samson,
had my Delilah -
like him, suffered his fate!
Just like Samson,
I was strong -
strength, God gave me was great!

Like Delilah,
I loved you -
but your 'love' turned to hate.
Like Samson,
I bowed to you -
your grapes of wrath, I ate

My Delilah,
you, truly, were -
beauty beyond compare!
But you drained
my blood of Love -
left my bones, bleached and bare

Like Delilah
did to Samson,
when she shaved his hair.
You used my Love
to make me weak -
you pretended to care

As Delilah
did to Samson -
lied to gain my trust.
You 'loved' yourself
much more than me -
did what you felt you must

My Delilah -
your sword of hate,
into my heart, you thrust!
My Delilah -
just like Samson -
my soul's reduced to dust

Alone Zone

Life, alone,
in pain, you groan -
in your heart, holes, it kicks!
Love has flown -
you cry and groan -
your time, away, it ticks!

In lost's zone,
joy's ways, unknown -
your compass needs a fix!
Grief's seeds, sown -
in angst, you roam -
add despair to the mix!

From hope, thrown -
your chance, you've blown -
on edge of hysterics!
Soul turned stone,
Love has no home -
you play pretend's antics

Deep in your bones,
there's negative's tones -
your reasoning, panics!
Love, alone,
you won't condone -
finished with romantics*

Love's Prisoner

My prison
does not have walls -
this cage, locked, has no bars!
My constraints,
unlimited -
confined, far past the stars

Your Love, withheld,
a life sentence,
death, alone, will commute!
No other Love
can free my soul -
for you, no substitute

I'll be alone
until I die -
know this is what you want!
For me, to suffer
and to cry -
my Love, your ghost will haunt

I'll live out
my life's last years,
imprisoned by your rage.
Captive of
my heart and tears -
by your Love, lost, I'm caged

Love Sense (her lack of it)

She should have prayed
prayers of Love, more -
to God, in servitude .
Instead, she pays
price , ultimate -
for sins, naked and nude

Singing, not,
for salvation -
reciting satan's song.
Gambling
with her future -
her cards, she played all wrong

Willfully,
she made her choice -
knowingly, she strayed.
Spitefully,
ignored Love's voice -
with truth, she should have stayed

Following
the road of vain -
traversing twisted paths!
Taking trails
of selfishness,
that only led to wrath

Leaving her
true Love, behind,
admires what's in her mirror.
She doesn't do
deeds , right and kind -
her fate becomes too clear

Corrupted by
self-centered mind -
her end, she'll learn to fear.
To Love and life,
chose to live, blind -
made mistakes, her career

Freedom for
herself, she sought -
but instead, found a curse!
All her life,
for wrong she fought -
results could not be worse

Now, caught in
fate's avalanche,
her life will slowly ebb.
Love will give her
one more chance
to escape hatred's web

Forgiveness,
she still can find -
if and when, she repents.
If she admits
she was Love-blind
and comes to her Love sense

Poetic Head Scratching

Mixing, matching -
rhymes creation!
Muses, hatching,
seeks ovation

Verses, catching -
find elation!
This head, scratching -
need summation

Locks, unlatching -
gone, frustrations!
Holes, keep patching -
heal, mutations

Weaving wonders -
builder, thatching!
Meter blunders -
muse rhymes, matching

Hearing thunder,
fear is catching -
brave, asunder -
scared egg, hatching

Desperation,
I'm dispatching -
Love's conditions,
I'm attaching

Poems, together,
bundle, batching -
from defeat's jaws,
Love, I'm snatching

Free From Trials

I deal with pain -
it fuels my drive.
Appreciative,
my Love's alive!

I've overcome -
through roadblocks, strive -
hope, after life,
bliss will arrive

I won't give up -
on hope, I grip -
I sail with God -
won't sink my ship

I'll endure trials -
temptations, face!
By Christ, empowered -
strength from His Grace

We need the Lord -
can't win alone!
Sharpen your wit -
your spirit, hone!

Admit your guilt -
your mistakes, face!
You're forgiven -
can't 'earn' God's Grace

Drown sins with tears
and do it now!
With honesty,
don't run afoul

Do perfect deeds -
treasures, compile!
Clean up your act
and face no trial

Live, Holy

If sick of the dark,
then, turn to the light -
reject rhymes of wrong,
read poems that are right!

Awake when it's day
and sleep when it's night -
or, mistaken, live -
from sour fruits, you'll bite!

To the Lord, you sing -
in Him, you'll delight!
Good deeds, to God, bring -
from sinning, take flight

Give strength to the weak,
bring hope to the poor.
Words, holy, you speak -
curses, you abhor!

Blessed are the meek -
strength, for them, in store!
Humility, seek -
gain treasures, galore!

Gifts, unselfish, give -
on wings of joy, soar!
Life, perfect, you live -
poems, sacred, you roar!

Love, Focused

Thoughts, disturbed,
aren't retardation!
A mind, confused,
just feels frustration!

A Love, perturbed,
treat with elation!
Feel your thoughts, through
(Love concentration)

Oh, yes, there's just
one stipulation -
breathe into Love,
resuscitation

Please do so with
determination
and be done with
all aggravation

Rejecting all
abomination,
Love requires
manipulation

Don't indulge
in degradation -
show the Lord,
appreciation

Love Dreamer, Sincere

Once, upon
a dream, last night,
I met a girl, so fair.
Her attitude
and smile, so right -
for others, seemed to care

For my sore eyes,
she was a sight -
none, to her, I'll compare.
Within her soul,
I saw a light -
Love, with me, she would share

It was the beauty
in her heart -
a view I saw, so clear!
Hope, I felt,
right from the start -
her trust, I might endear

Though she's only
in my dreams,
pray, again, she'll appear.
For her Love,
this dreamer, schemes -
of her, I'll rhyme sincere

Evolving Love

The poems I muse
and pen for her,
of mythical proportions!
I do my best
to keep her real
and leave out vain distortions

With thoughts, sincere
and honesty,
ink strokes her to perfection!
I'm hoping that
my rhymes and poems
will pass her Love inspection

I'm praying, that
my words, shallow,
further, she may see through.
My deeper meaning,
she'll hallow -
know my Love for her, true

I hope through
all thoughts we share,
a friendship will evolve.
Trust and faith,
we'll both declare -
around Love, we'll revolve

Love Without Alibi

The greatest enemy of Love
is 'love' that's based on class!
That 'love' comes, not from above -
it's heart, fragile as glass

Money cannot buy the soul -
riches cannot earn trust!
Bank accounts will take a toll -
your gold will turn to rust

Happiness is without cost -
it's joy cannot be bought!
With it's sale, true Love is lost -
in buyer's jaws, gets caught!

Gems and jewels will tempt the fools -
their value, without worth!
wealth, the rich man's briber tools -
to Love, they won't give birth

Material and worldly gain,
real Love can never buy!
Your search for happiness, in vain -
just tears, purchased, you'll cry

Hold out for divine and true -
on faith, you can rely!
Truth is always best for you -
Love needs no alibi

Poet's Pledge

I have overcome this world -
it's delights, I don't crave!
Corrupted appetites, pervert -
to evil, not a slave!

Into hell, hope, I'm not hurled -
no reward in the grave!
Twisted souls will not subvert -
with satan, I won't rave

Around temptations, lust is curled -
so sweet, may be the bait.
Surrender's flag won't be unfurled -
won't be a hate ingrate!

I'll do good with all my might -
for all our sake, be brave.
Take correct roads, in God's Sight -
pathways to holy, pave

Eyes see best in day - not night -
better how to behave!
We're not owls - we see with light -
not bats, blind, in a cave

Out of life, took a small bite -
I gained less than I gave!
For you and me, I'll do what's right -
our lives, I'll try to save*

- Bill Costello (Nov. 29th, 2014)

Love, Alpha and Omega

The traits of Love
are so profound!
In depths of Love,
I nearly drown

Sat on it's throne
and played it's clown -
nailed to it's cross
and wore it's crown

With gifts of life,
others, you bless!
The range of Love
is limitless!

Life without Love
is such a mess!
The loss of Love,
defines distress

Rewards of Love
are coming, soon -
don't play the role
of hate's buffoon

Let Love supply
your harvest moon.
Be fruit that's plump -
not shriveled prune

The end of Love?
The answer's never!
Lifelines of Love,
the Lord won't sever!

Alpha - Omega -
eternal endeavor!
The rule of Love
will last forever!

Love Beyond Despair

Beyond your beauty,
far past your face.
Beyond the sinning -
forgave disgrace

Beyond remorse -
past indifference -
beyond our youth
and innocence

Beyond the life
that we, once, had -
beyond the joy,
when we were glad

Beyond distrust,
I hope we've grown.
Faith turned to dust -
Love's chance, we've blown

Beyond hate's sleep,
hope we'll awake -
pray, we'll forgive,
for both our sake

Beyond heartbreak,
beyond despair,
there's Love for you -
I'll always care!

Love's Enemy's Reward

This world isn't satisfied
'till nature is disrupted!
Evil wants Love crucified -
desires beauty, corrupted

Innocence is vilified -
those selfish can't be trusted!
Love's flower has been petrified -
rose, turned to steel, is rusted

With lies, keep her mesmerized -
lead her to their destruction!
Want her morals, compromised -
sunk into their corruption

The prison they have planned for her,
a cage of hopeless fate.
Shackled by chains of despair -
all Love, eliminate

They'll have her in their control -
her dreams, they will sedate!
no Love for her to console -
life will degenerate

They just wanted to own her -
no Love, for her, they planned!
All her joy has been deferred -
the flames of hate, they fanned

They will harvest grief they stir -
rewards, on scale, so grand!
All because of Love, they slur -
on condemned ground, they'll stand

All About Yourself

Hope, with yourself, you're happy -
alone, you've found fulfilled!
Pray, prices, you paid, weren't too high -
too much blood wasn't spilled

Hope, pain you caused, was all worthwhile -
enjoy your selfish thrills?
Self-centeredness is just your style -
victims, your ruthless, chills

Hope 'loves' don't run afoul of you -
deal with your mental ills.
Some of us, found out too late -
some 'lovers', your 'love', kills

Hope, gentle, caring, loving souls
won't succumb to your will.
Your 'love' is all about yourself -
of you, Love's had it's fill

Love, Forevermore

Fly, you, high
beyond this trap* -
above this open sewer.
Stay, you, far
from worldly crap -
don't mix with sin's manure

Be the best
that you can be -
a Love that's blessed and pure.
With holy eyes,
righteous, you'll see -
yourself, of selfish, cure

From what's vain
and greed, you flee -
what's decent, you need more!
With what's precious,
you'll agree -
pass through Love's sacred door

Know and live
the life of Love -
refine your inner core!
To what's right,
always devout -
have Love, forevermore

Love, Superlative

I'm not here
to take or steal -
it's Love I'm here to give
'Getting', ain't
what life's about -
I need to share to live!

You're not here
to help you out -
be more Love, suggestive!
You're wired to bless -
of this, don't doubt -
let joy be reflective

We're all here
for all our sake -
invoke acts, positive!
Keep your word -
Love's oaths, don't break -
be sincere - progressive!

Now's the time
for you to act -
do deeds, affirmative!
Start to grow -
make dreams, a fact -
live Love, superlative!

Poems, Beautified

Meteoric,
writers, rise -
quick flash of fascination!
Just as fast,
cut down to size -
detoured, their destination

Honesty,
they compromised -
a mistaken equation!
Should have sought
sincerity -
more Love appreciation

Spare us
the vulgarity -
don't need the degradation -
less with the
disparity
and more with the elation

Write with
crystal clarity -
pen rhymes of revelation!
Ascend high,
above parity -
poems of beautification

I Write These Poems For You

The words I write
and tales I tell,
may not be what you want.
I might incite
and make you yell -
your anger, I may flaunt

Or, I may
inspire your soul -
bring to your heart, a thrill -
refresh your hopes
of happiness -
Love, in your life, instill

My words may
dual thoughts, convey -
by wisdom or mistake!
But I am not
maniacal -
deceit's roads, I don't take!

I am as
my rhymes appear -
plain, simply put and true!
Relax, enjoy -
no need to fear -
these poems, I write for you

Love's Fresh Air

My name is sincerity -
roads I travel, sincere!
I'm seeking, always, clarity -
for you, I hope that's clear

Between us, no disparity -
all doubts will disappear!
Have moments of hilarity -
share laughs to bring us cheer

I'm hoping Love will bring us through
the trials we must endure.
I pray, someday, we'll find our way
to Love's forgiving cure

We'll pursue what's good for you -
above despair, we'll soar!
Claw our way to Love that's true -
cleanse our souls of all war

I'm hoping you will take this cue
and from my rhymes, before.
Do best for others - it's for you -
new ways to Love, explore

Cling to what you know is right -
defend what you know fair!
Always ascend to the light -
of darkness, best beware

Suffer, not, from hatred's plight -
no baggage, you'll declare!
Throttling the curse of spite,
your soul breathes Love's fresh air

Holy Warning

Hey, all of you, cold-hearted -
you best hear what I'm saying -
for your soul's immortality,
I think you'd better start praying

Fire burns you to nothing -
God's not, with you, playing.
Your chance of living, forever,
are so, swiftly, decaying

You've spent your whole life, sinning -
from righteousness, been straying.
Your end is now beginning -
your demise, you're portraying

You've been loving disloyal -
the Lord God, been betraying!
All those who worship evil,
Our Father will be slaying

Pray honestly and humble -
down on your face, prone, laying,
or right to hell, you'll stumble -
remorseful, start conveying

The Grace of God, don't fumble -
your rope of hope is fraying!
false hopes, built on sand, crumble -
death's price, you'll soon be paying
