You Are My Strength

Beaten down once again for my mental crimes

I lie on the ground shaking, in tears

This has happened to me one too many times

Being brought low by my own insecurities, doubts, & fears


I have been my worst enemy for years

Allowing my own mind to wage battles against me

I do more to harm myself than any of my…

God Is In Control

One hand upon the steering wheel

The other is resting upon the door frame

My GPS is telling me where to go

I feel like I’m in total control


The sun is shining upon me

It’s warming my skin

Today is one of those days

That I could make anything happen


To make this day even better

There needs…

Winter Can Be Kind Of Swell

Through the wind and the freezing rain

It becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the pain

My knees are crying out to me

It would be best for us to rest, can you not see?


Tis the season when Bronchitis stalks me

I beg with all my might for it to flee

But like a stubborn child unwilling to submit

It decides it’s…

'The King'

copyright 2013 by Richard Reiley

The King was in his counting house

Waltzing with his money

Sad but determined to get more

He didn't know the answer

To the question in his head but

What else were those dancing lessons for?

The Queen was with her chambermaids

Who were tending…

In Faith Divided, But In Love United

My heart tells me this

That God truly exists

His love is real, powerful, & everlasting

Because of what He’s done, I shall not feel death’s sting


But there’s something I must confess

Understand this, it doesn’t make me love Him less

God wasn’t fabricated

But religion itself was indeed…

Now I know my ABC's, next time won't you sing with me?

Almost always rushing

Bills to pay

Cat to feed

Deadlines to make

Everyone needs something

Food to put on the table

Garbage to take out

Homework to help with

Ice to scrape off the car

Jealousy to calm

Knees to soothe

Laundry to do

Mistakes to remedy

Nails breaking

Oil needs…

Silent Nightmare

Barely a man

Overseas he travels

So very far from home

To a fight for our country


He doesn’t understand why

He just knows our country needs him

So he prepares to give all he has

To defend the land he loves


He faced things he never dreamed of

But now it’s all he can do to escape the…

Look closely at my tapestry

Within every thread, a story is told

Tell me, what do you see?

When you look upon the colors bright and bold


The majority of the blues signify the many tears shed

The yellows are for every ray of hope

The reds are for every time I ached and bled

Each purple hue you see is for those…

Power Within

Words have such power

More than many realize

They can strengthen a fragile heart

Or they can tear a soul apart from the inside out


Often times we think before we speak

Not considering how our words impact others

It’s become too easy to let words flow off our tongues

Though we don’t hesitate to get…

A Plea For Empathy From An Empathetic Heart

How can I explain with mere words

The way that my thoughts and emotions work?

When someone I love is hurting, I hurt too

As if their heartaches and burdens were my own

Many times the empathy I feel allows me to help

So there are times when this serves as a blessing

By putting myself through the pain and stress

I can often find ways to…
