Randy McClave Poems
I stare out at the cherry blossoms In marvel and joy I watch them bloom Then they burst out with their effloresces As though awaking from mother nature’s womb,
Becoming A Man
The father told his son when he becomes a man To always be the very best that he truly can, Becoming a man pertains to wisdom and not of age Don't enter it with simplicity and never with a gage,
Bring Me Flowers
Bring me flowers when I am living Don't bring me them when I am dead, Let me enjoy them in the giving My mother always had said.
Love is special, Love is kind, Love is joyful, Anyday or anytime.
Knowing Of A Tree
It is a good thing indeed When someone plants a seed And to watch and help it grow So someday, it to be a tree.
I Am My Father's Son
I Am My Father's Son That is who I am, Though I am, still his child I am still a man.
Drinking never made me a happier person Nor did it allow me to enjoy my life more If anything it caused my attitude to worsen Then in the end I ended up face down on the floor.
I was tempted by the devil today But when I saw it I turned and walked away Then when I was alone to GOD I did pray I thanked him for making me strong that very day.
My Home Town
My home town The place where I was born, where I learned of love And was taught of truth
Let's Build The Wall
Let's build us a wall to keep everyone out Let's build us a wall even if they scream and shout, To the heavens it must rise to protect us one and all Then we all will be finally defended, so let's build us a wall.
The Scottish Dance
I once had myself a Scottish Lassie She then became my joy and pride Then one-night she gave me Scottish ale Then she became my Scottish bride
I want to be marchin’ and also yellin’ I want to be part of a rebellion, Beside my brothers I want to fight On the side of the truth, and the right,
So fine a day it is today To the world I send out my hope and care Happy and joyful I am so to all I must say That I will remember you all in my prayer.
Be the way that you want to be Not the way that others have chose Be not your Mother, nor your Father, Because in your body their blood does flow.
I am me.
For being the way I am.
To be myself, and on one else.
Myself, being a man.
Though I will make mistakes,
And I will ask for help,
But that will be me.
And it wont be anyone else.
