MILESTONES Rose Time The day was well spent I was very tired I saw the roses blooming By the busy city street I was late for an appointment And had no time The lure of their beauty Slowed me I pushed on 18 .GARY REVEL .
MILESTONES Then stopped me I succumbed The fragrance The deep breath Refreshing The day was new I wasn't late I was right on time Rose time 19 .GARY REVEL .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES Forest Moon Oh forest moon Of green and oak A maple leaf A rain to soak A pine tree tall A breath of air So fresh and clean A love so fair A time to leap A time to run To shout to praise 20 .
MILESTONES Nothing undone A perfect place For you and I To be right now No time to die 21 .GARY REVEL .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES I May Be Wrong I may be right I may be holy I may find strength In something solely I may not be A thing at all I may not see And so soon fall Whatever is May be for nothing Whatever comes 22 .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES May do so loathing The day it comes The night it is For brutal thought Brings forth that kiss That kiss of death That song of mourn That ripe dead heap For those unborn Will grieve my soul Today and more On this bright day 23 .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES On this great shore I may be right I may be wrong I may be weak I may be strong I may find love I may find hate I may fly high Or lock that gate I may not be A thing at all Just someone's thought 24 .
MILESTONES From some great hall Eternal bliss May here abode But only for The greatest load Upon my shoulders It was placed I felt it not I turned and faced That deadly thing That brought all hate To me was waste 25 .GARY REVEL .
MILESTONES So brought but late For I have known A love so true That nothing's gain Will never undo Never unlove Never unbleed Never be real Never be Never be Ever I may be wrong 26 .GARY REVEL .
MILESTONES My Enemy Tried to kill me So many times Yet all those tries Could find no rhymes Flooded the air With schemes and lies The more springs forth The more that dies Hatred flows from That evil heart A hate so great 27 .GARY REVEL .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES Love has no start Hate knows no love Except his own And soon will reap The hate he's sown Hate tries to kill But let's be real Hate's own hater Dies in the deal 28 .
MILESTONES NOW Why are you racing towards tomorrow It will be gone when you get there And even if you catch it It's never what you imagined It transforms from future to now We're all living in the now Yesterday is past Tomorrow is beyond And now is the place where we are What you're feeling is now 29 .GARY REVEL .
GARY REVEL . wisdom And love All the things that make life worth living Take the time To make now Yours forever 30 . health.MILESTONES What you're thinking is now What you're touching is now Your heart is beating now Now is life Now can be prosperity.
MILESTONES Silent Scream T'was not the heart that made her cry Just something lost when tears ran dry And there was nothing left To cry for except self For all the years she wept in vain To men for truth to their disdain And not one cared to say It's yours dear seize the day I've tried to help her in this town 31 .GARY REVEL .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES Of evil beggars with king's gold crown And shining wicked smiles Seen much for many miles Take heed my friend do not fall prey To smokey dens with feet of clay On shifting floors of sand Tricked to a winning hand So few have seen her cry those tears She's stood so tall for all those years So brave so strong so true 32 .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES Not once could we undo Could be she stands for liberty Or good and just humanity Those who have died know well If heaven may be hell Blood poured from veins and wounds cut deep Sometimes shallow to make long bleed For pain is brought to bare And some will never care And if we fail in this new course Of rights and wrongs barbaric force 33 .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES Lambs that have lost their way On spit o'er fire today I've seen them beg to spare their life The sons daughters dad mom and wife But all to no avail So soon you hear their wail Tears fall tears flow just like the blood No one is saved from this new flood She speaks no word it seems I've heard that silent scream 34 .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES The Day I Died I took the Amtrak to that town one day Didn't know what for it was on the way To the place I knew I would soon get to A place I would find if only I knew But knowing's not easy when your not yourself Maybe you’re the saint or Pope or an elf It really won't matter later tonight When they find my body in the train's light 35 .
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES They'll think that I jumped or maybe got killed The coffin was fine somebody got billed I had no ID no one knew my name Just another John Doe no one to blame How many have gone just to find themselves In one of the morgue's cold cadaver's shelves With no one to care except God above No one to send flowers or even their love 36 .
MILESTONES In spite of it all I got off the train In that little town didn't know it's name I found myself in the yard of a church Shade trees of willow maybe oak or birch All I can say about it now for sure I found a love that was so sweet and pure I knelt down on my knees began to pray God gave me new life as I died that day 37 .GARY REVEL .
gray and blue soft voices.GARY REVEL . dull monoloques eyes that sparkle like stars teeth that shine brightly or teeth that rot so many kinds of people could it be that it's really not true 38 .MILESTONES two kinds of people it is said by many that kinds of people are not a few lifestyles. shrill laughter sing songy rhythms. skin color eyes brown. green.
GARY REVEL .MILESTONES maybe all kinds of people are really one or maybe just two some I have met do a lot with little no thought what they have not others are quite content to do just a little with a lot 39 .
