Tarnished Halos

We all have tarnished halos

None of us can say

That we’ve always done

the right thing

or always walked the narrow way

Even the best of us

Have had moments when we stumbled 

and strayed,

Without the Lord’s sweet mercy,

None of us would be saved

New Poem

He’s been in a lot of trouble

& had a lot of fails

He’s even spent more than

a few nights in jail

He’s got a wife that Loves him

but she wouldn’t pay his bail

She said I won’t help you

until you help yourself

She decided she’d had

enough one day

She said if you want me to stay

Let me tell you man,

Some things really have to change

I won’t spend my life watching you

Throw yours away
