Welcome:

It is hard to believe this is the 22nd edition of Poems from the Jersey Shore. I’ve been writing poems and stories for a long time mostly to stay busy as I stay indoors but also to keep my mind fresh. It is challenging to take a prompt or a line or two and create a poem from them. I’m mostly drawn to creating inspirational poems but I also love to create other poems some of which are silly or even once in a while children’s poems.

I hope you enjoy this installment. I look forward to your feedback as well any prompts for future poems you may want me to write. Until next time stay healthy and stay safe.

Dreams - A Song Lyrics

In your mind

Dreams

Hopes unseen

Might have beens

Real’s the dream

Trying to leave the real world behind

Trying to play out the images in your mind

All the visions you have for you life

None of which ever come to light


Dreams,

Hopes unseen

Might have beens

Real’s a dream


Dreams, dreams, playin in my head

Dreams, dreams, playin in my head

Dreams, dreams, playin in my head


Dreams,

Hopes unseen

Might have beens

Real’s a dream


Trying to leave the real world behind

Trying to play out the images in your mind

All the visions you have for you life

None of which ever come to light


Dreams,

Hopes unseen

Might have beens

Real’s a dream


Trying to leave the real world behind

Trying to play out the images in your mind

All the visions you have for you life

None of which ever come to light

Prompt: . Write a poem about life advice you’d give to your younger self.

Hey Younger Me

Hey younger me

You got me locked in chains.

They’re not the kind you can see no, no


Whoa, these chains got a hold on me

Chains I can‘t break away from, no man

Can’t run my life, cause I’m not free

Whoa, these chains you’ve created

Won‘t let go of me, I can’t be free


i wanna tell you younger me

Would I seek to change the course of a life

I’ve come to know as my own

or would I point out all the mistakes I’ve made.


No, I think you did fine, livin’ your life

But I’d also like say there are some things

You did along the way which are still

Chaining me, Chaining me


Whoa, these chains got a hold on me

Chains I can‘t break away from, no man

Can’t run my life, cause I’m not free

Whoa, these chains you’ve created

Won‘t let go of me, I can’t be free


Hey younger me

Please believe me when I tell you

At times our life was sweet

And I’ll treasure some moments along the way

But I can’t break of the chains you‘ve created


Whoa, these chains got a hold on me

Chains I can‘t break away from, no man

Can’t run my life, cause I’m not free

Whoa, these chains you’ve created

Won‘t let go of me, I can’t be free

Prompt: Wrote a poem about something colorful.

Color My World

Color my, color my

Color my dreams

Color my, color my

Color my dreams

Separate me from what

This world seems

And color my dreams


Well, this world i live

It is not my own

It’s a dream i’m havin’

On my way home

Much, much more

Than can meet the eye

If i blink twice

It will pass me by

So i gaze upon the colors

That have all faded to grey

Ever searching my dreams

For that brighter day


Color my, color my

Color my dreams

Color my, color my

Color my dreams

Separate me from what

This world seems

And color my dreams


Well someday my dream

Will be over

And i will open my eyes

To gaze upon a brand new world

With crystal blue skys

There will br no more

Dreams of balck and white

No more colors faded to gray

All the colors will be

So bright

As if they were painted

That way

Prompt: A poem about the nighttime.

Moonlit Nights

I love to walk

around on

moonlit nights


The world around me

is such

a beautiful sight


The world is bathed

in a moonlit glow

As if covered in

a new fallen snow


I especially like

To walk on a dark lane

Look up at the

ethereal plane


See the scattered stars

cast out like dust

Stare at the moon with

It’s earthly thrust


Yes, I like the nighttime

where the sky is clear

And the soft music

of silence

Is all your hear

An old poem of mine reborn.

State of Confusion

Where I am

Out there

Where

Here

Nowhere

I'm in a state of confusion

I'm in a state of confusion

Get up my days

In a constant haze

Running here

Running there

Why

It's become the style

I'm in a state of confusion

I'm in a state of confusion

The world moves

At such a pace

It's a constant rat race

I'm in a state of confusion

I'm in a state of confusion

Where I am

Out there

Where

Here

Nowhere

We've got to learn

To slow down

Sit back

Take a break

Have a cup of tea

Don't you see

I'm in a state of confusion

Prompt: Colossians 3:17, "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Gotta Roll

Gotta roll with what you got

There’s only so much you can do

With the life, the life you’re now livin

Gotta go with whatever comes

Whatever the lot you are givin


Gotta roll, gotta roll

With the changes, changes

Don’t let it all get to you,

Put your life in the hands of God

He’ll know just what to do


He’s the one who created it all

He’s the one set the heart in motion

He’s the one who seeks our love

He’s the one we owe our devotion


Gotta roll with what you got

There’s only so much you can do

With the life, life you’re now livin

Gotta go with whatever comes

Whatever the lot you are givin
