Silence of the Deep! By L. Don Oliver

A gentle refreshing sea breeze, Waves splashing upon the __; Seabirds soaring above me; A beautiful new world to __;

In the shadows of my soul, The world above me ___; Slipping slowly beneath the waves, Into the silence of the _;

Serenity of quite solitude Rainbow creatures swimming ; Lovely flowering coral reefs, One is thankful to be ___;

Where there's rhyme and reason No imperative schedule to _; Controlling my own destiny, In the silence of the _;

Sounds from a distant whale, Echoes that I can barely _; Knowing that I am not alone, Deflates any questioning _;

Bubbles from a fissure below, Up through the darkened __; At peace with the world, In the silence of the _;

When life has passed me by, Broken dreams never to _; Things that I once enjoyed, Ever winding down to ;

If to die upon the morrow, From cause for eternal __; I pray thee my final rest, In the silence of the _;

"Our" Constitution! By L. Don Oliver

It once was a beautiful document, That was gracefully written there; And through all it's many years. It was giving great love and care;

Once it contain words of "Freedom", Words that resonated toward the high, Gathered within its wisdom, was hope, But alas, those days have gone by;

Now we are told to tear it up, Rendering it into a pile of dust; Viewing it as a pathetic relic, Worthy of only their disgust;

The meaning for which it stood, Now archaic with no charm; They are scripting a new one, That will never cause them harm;

The Ten Morals: By L. Don Oliver

It is morally right to have, Faith for what you Believe; It is morally wrong to worship, What others deceitfully conceive;

It is morally wrong to assail others, Even the words we speak; It is morally right to rest, On one day of each week;

It is morally right to honor parents, Even if there may be strife; It is morally wrong to purposely, Take someone else's life;

It is morally right to be honest, To the one you're committed to; It is morally wrong to take, That which doesn't belong to you;

It is morally wrong to utter untruths, For most it leads to distress; It is morally wrong to be jealous, Of what others may possess;

I've always lived by the "Golden Moral", Of everything that I perceive; "To always do for others, What I wish them to do for me";
