Food Cares (A Poem Written For My Ever-Hungry Brother)

Food cares and understands why,

When my stomach roars, I just wanna cry.

So stop messin’ ’round and hand me that pie –

It’s about to go down…that ain’t no lie.

 

Food knows and fills all my needs,

For that piece of pie, I’d get on my knees.

It’s a partnership that’ll last ’til I die.

Oh how I love you, you sweet piece of pie!

 

Food cares, when I feel down.

It picks me up and turns my day around,

But when the pain comes and help can’t be found,

I get some Blue Bell and go to town!

My Favorite….Poem

I’d like to share with you my favorite poem. It is by Edgar A. Guest and is about how your actions are more important than your words. Many times we tend to think that we can impact society the most by what we say. However, what you do speaks much louder than what you say you do. Don’t talk about it; be about it.

I’d Rather See A Sermon

By: Edgar. A Guest

I’d rather see a sermon

Than hear one any day;

I’d rather one should walk with me

Than merely tell the way.

The eye’s a better pupil

And more willing than the ear,

Fine counsel is confusing,

But example’s always clear;

And the best of all preachers

Are the men who live their creeds,

For to see good put in action

Is what everybody needs.

I soon can learn to do it

If you’ll let me see it done;

I can watch your hands in action,

But your tongue too fast may run.

And the lecture you deliver

May be very wise and true,

But I’d rather get my lessons

By observing what you do;

For I might misunderstand you

And the high advice you give,

But there’s no misunderstanding

How you act and how you live.
