Old Actor

No roles for me, the scripts don’t arrive, I’m over the forty barrier, younger and more youthful required to play opposite the younger men, should have been a teacher. The guild sends the mail shots, at least they remember that movie I made ten years ago.

The children leave home, she is disconsolate, her life has changed, was a minder, a mother, now, she sighs over her morning coffee, no long laundry, no school drives, no teacher parent meets, no more social evenings, no more fund raising, what’s the point.

Nursing home patient, stuck to the bed, hardly walks, can’t speak, can just about raise her head, is the center of attention, Her Spirit is keeping the entire show on the road, she has inner spiritual power, what will happen when she passes, it’s their worry instead.

Solomon sighed, if you die, don’t worry, your deeds go with you, it’s the currency that God counts, what you did for others, its not a crisis of this is all there is, it’s the start of a new career, now that you have graduated, the old actor sighs, wasn’t a bad career.

God Calls Pete

 

God calls St.Peter,

decision time,

wants a report,

angel has been sent,

royal Guard,

God’s personal assistant,

beautiful spirit,

away ten years,

clocks counted down,

number within reach,

ticking time bomb,

each time it does,

soul dies or revives,

goes left or right,

over and back,

moving in direction,

position is precarious,

world hangs or survives,

scenario’s danger laden,

extension the best outcome,

mothers mentally battered,

children beyond repair,

love dying everywhere,

time to address the issue,

women in despair,

wisdom needed,

holy warriors prepared,

screams of horror,

abusers run terrified,

fists of God smash,

evil in despair,

more warnings,

amenImage
