My Own Humanity


Hello my friends

How’s it going in your neck of the woods? It’s fairly well
up here. Today it’s supposed to get up to 80 F degrees :).
It’s pretty outside. The sun is shining with clear blue skies
above. I haven’t been doing much walking lately due to my
left leg giving me problems, but I will try to get out and do
some picture taking this week. It’s actually been sort of on
the boring side this past week. Not much happening other
than the usual day in day out TV programs with Judy and
working on our Farms in FaceBook off and on hehehehehe.
Nope ain’t much going on up here. The weather has been
nice the last few days. We might get a shower or two this
week, but for the most part, it should be nice. The winds
are supposed to be subsided Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday, so my neighbor might get out and fly his planes if
he is feeling up to it. If so, I might get out there and do a
bit more picture taking and videos 🙂 if I’m feeling up to it.
My neighbor Paul just finished doing some weed eating 🙂
It’s that time of the year LOL! Those old yellow sneeze
weeds/flowers are blooming profusely. I may soon get our
new little wading pool inflated and filled with water so we
can set out and soak time to time, but first I will have to
find a good place to set it up where the bottom won’t get
a hole in it from our rocky driveway hehe. We both miss
the swimming pool at the apartments in Texas. When
Judy got home from work in the mornings we would go &
soak in the pool as soon as it opened hehehe. Yeppers I
surely miss those days and I’m sure Judy does too, but today
is a different day and time. I’m still hoping on making it
down to Texas in July. Keep me in your prayers. There
are so many people I want to see. I haven’t seen anybody
since Dec 2007 other than my mom and sister when they
drove up to visit in the summer of 2008. For now I have
been trying to pinch as many pennies as possible so I can
afford the trip there and back along with a few things to
do when I get there. As I said before, there isn’t much
that has changed up in these parts other than the days,
so not much to talk about. God has kept His Hand on
us both and made sure we have what we need as well as
a few of our wants. Thank you Jesus 🙂 Yes this has
been an experience for me up here in Maine. I never
ever thought I would move outside of the state of Texas,
but life has a way of throwing curve balls at you hehe.
God knows where that we belong and where we can be
of better use to Him. We may not see the full purpose
behind the moments, but they are there. I always try
to just let His Will be done, but my own humanity steps
up to bat from time to time and I get aggravated from
days gone by and wishful thinking. Yes we are human
and yes we will fail time to time in our walk with Jesus,
but He understands and forgives us if we ask sincerely.
His Words say that if you ask then it is done. God sent
His Son because He knew we could not make it alone.
He knew He needed us to know that He understands our
pain and so His Son endured all that was thrown at him
to the point of being literally nailed hands and feet to
the cross while alive and prodded in his ribs while He
wore a crown of thorns upon His Head. He was made
a mockery of in many ways. The point is, He does in
fact understand what we go through and is there with
His strength to help us endure what our lives toss at us.
Yes we will get sick and have problems. That is what
is called life. We can grow stronger through the hard
times if we use them well. Not forgetting the things that
we endured and looking and seeing how much we had
grown makes the hard times as tools to use. Don’t try
to block out the bad times. Use what you learned as a
tool for the future, yet don’t let the bad times of past
to live as just a nightmare. Today is today and then
is gone. The lessons should be what that thrives inside
your mind. Say a prayer and let Jesus help you through
the lessons. Now with that said I guess it’s time for me
to begin my little venture back through all I’ve written
to see if I can find a good word or phrase that might
work well for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So it’s off I go to that place of my recollection that I
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a
good title. Now, let’s see if I can write a poem that
makes any sense using it hehehehe. Here goes……..

My Own Humanity

My past that’s lived
brings thoughts today
of the things
of much dismay.
My own desires
of time to time
made my past
a bad design.
Yet my past
of withered hue
taught me what
I need to do.
I found the tools
in days gone by
that help me now
see eye to eye.
I’ve found today
what God gave free
forgiveness from
my own humanity.
Through His Son
that lives and breathes
I have learned
from my disease.
Things from decades
long ago
teach me now
what I need to know.

Well, there ya go hehehe. It might not make any sense to you,
but it does to me LOL. In any sense, I at least hope I said a few
things that you understood. Yeppers I do ramble don’t I hehehe!
I think it’s getting close to the time that Judy should be getting
home from work, so I guess I should be winding this up hehehe.
So, firstly I need to tell you what I always tell you and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haikus. Yep, ya guessed it hehe
10 poems and 22 haikus, but no extras. Hopefully some of them
speak to you. I never truly know if what I am writing is going
to be fully understood especially by my friends that English is
not their best language. I’ve tried converting my journals into
other languages, but the words tend to get turned and twisted,
being we have many words spelled the exact same way that may
have two or more meanings depending on where and how we
use them. None the less, I do hope you were able to get a bit
of understanding out of my ramblings and poetry. Now I need
to be hunting for that old off switch, but before I do that I need
to wish you a most wonderful joyful week. Always remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find that dad gum off
switch that likes to hide from me hehehehe. Found it hiding
inside of my Mountain Dew can dog paddling hehehehe LOL.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haikus.
10 and 22 hehehe 🙂

Like You And Me

Many will follow
with footsteps of time
maybe seen as an
imaginary line.
Often some people
what that your footing
has there at hand.
Many don’t see clear
where you are going
due the lack of
you they are knowing.
Many will wonder
how you get by
when in fact they don’t
see eye to eye.
Within our judgments
we may not see
how they are truly
like you and me.

The Misleading

Pointless is thinking
without a thought
and taking footsteps
where you have not.
Thinking you’re knowing
how ones perceive
might find confusion
in where you believe.
So many think they
know truly how
others can daily
somehow endow,
yet often many
make their mistakes
through the misleading
endearing stakes.
It’s often fragments
lost in a phrase
that creates anger
of which displays.

Mistook Features

Found are pages
in a book
seen by many
as a look.
Found are journeys
to desire
that will often
lead to fire.
Found are stages
of a dream
where things are not
what they seem.
Found are portions
of ones sight
that are searing
day and night.
Found are many
with a chance,
yet they often
miss the glance.
Mistook features
many see
found in journeys
you and me.

Waiting For A Picture

Summertime’s headway
leads here and there
as it makes journeys
most everywhere.
With every footstep
summertime makes
it provides journeys
a minute partakes
and within minutes
the hours provide
summertime’s headway
found in a stride.
Like a roller coaster
summer might go
sometimes as seconds
seeming to flow.
Yet often summertime
might simply be
waiting for a picture
taken by me.

Someone’s Reality

Moments return
when we just ignore
leaving them as a
time to explore.
We may not see
the moments ahead
that we ignored
when we were in dread.
Stages will set
and actors will play
within what you thought
just went away.
Deal with the minutes
of which time transpires
and you may then
prevent future fires.
Try to realize
that you may not see
what that is truly
someone’s reality.
Moments will come
in someone’s display
if you ignore
what they have to say.

Sweetness of Roses

Effortless flowers
just seem to bloom
with the aromas
of April, May, June.
They seem to blossom
just like before
when it is time to
open the door.
Springtime’s aroma
seems to transpire
with the aromas
of their own entire.
Sweetness of roses
with colors so fine
leaves and aroma
of their own design.
Oh so effortless
they seem to blend
as their rose petals
blow in the wind.

Arrogant people
with arrogant views
often make problems
within their shoes.
They might discover
in their desires
that they have started
some deadly fires.
Pointless arrogance
leaves in its wakes
times disheartened
found as mistakes.
Don’t be arrogant
seeking your goal.
Leave room for Jesus
inside you soul.
Let Lord God guide you
in your days drive
and make Him always
how that you strive.
Let not arrogance
live within you,
for it will discolor
your every view.

Paint From Your Heart

Painting a picture
from what’s inside
needs to be done
with eyes opened wide.
Opened to dreaming
with little doubt
allowing the picture
of then to come out.
Paint with brushstrokes
or with a pen
then make the picture
of then to begin.
Maybe just paint on
with your own display
as you go living
in your day to day.
Painting a picture
does not need to be
something that others
will always agree.
Often the paintings
come from our pains
leading as brushstrokes
unto our gains.
Paint your own view
as you so desire
and let the picture
display your fire.
Yet make the picture
not be discovered
as that of vengeance
timeless discolored.
Paint from your heart
what that you know
while you allow
the blessings to grow.

Look Deep Within

Letting a fragrance
into the room
might then awaken
what you consume.
With an aroma
time can be found
as a mere fragrance
going around.
Allowing some sadness
into your view
might make it also
live within you.
Make sure your ready
for what you explore
before you go walking
in through the door.
Letting a moment
take on its life
might end with leaving
you filled with strife.
Look deep within you
and see how you feel
before you go making
the fragrance as real.

A Footstep

With every footstep
there is a trace
seen as memories
from place to place.
We make our journeys
as journals in stride
with every footstep
that we coincide.
Stepping in sequence
of our own design
leaves us with pages
of time after time.
Owning a footstep
might supersede
of a mere moment
that you really need.
Make sure your footstep
is good to keep,
for if it’s not
then put it to sleep.
Change the directions
of which you prevail
for if you don’t
you could end in Hell.

for May 22, 2010

Ventures of stardom
found deep within someone’s eyes
may remain a dream.

Time for a moment
occurs when life meets minutes
which fulfill a need.

Inner most thinking
constructs visions of conquest
in some sort of way.

Deep in a river
floats the mirrors of itself
as ripples of time.

Searching passages
sometimes leaves you unaware
due to the unknown.

Breathing is pointless
if your breath is not your own
so become yourself.

Focus on today
with some hopeful in your eyes.
See what you can do.

A flowers romance
begins as a mere seedling
flourished in the ground.

Trivial problems
might leave many at a loss
of what’s important.

Portions of summer
are the remainders of spring
with a lavish bloom.

Planting a heartbeat
inside of someone heartless
takes a little time.

Often ones value
will overwhelm importance
and leave them empty.

When stuck with decisions,
the answers are deep within
between right and wrong.

Visiting meadows
does not always mean by sight.
It could be by sound.

Our links are bonded
through each episode of time
as things that we’ve learned.

No place is no place
for each place is someplace found
as our life moves on.

Valleys so peaceful
are givers of ideas
for someone to find.

Knowledge can help you
if it’s used and not wasted.
It can change the day.

Having a problem
makes way for a few answers
to be concluded.

Fall is awaiting
all its various colors
found upon the trees.

Language barriers
are more than just ones speaking.
They are in our thoughts.

Found within beliefs
are the thoughts of another
that could become one.
