New poem, "The Blessed Mother"

Here is a poem I wrote to honor my 2 Catholic grandmothers: Irene Uram (Polish) and Jeanette Titus (Irish). I wrote the poem from their point of view. "The Blessed Mother" This beautiful lady, This virgin so true, She wants to be, A mother to you. The angel Gabriel addressed her, Full of grace. Mary said, "Yes Lord!" And took her place. This mortal teenager was given, A monumental task. To bear the Messiah. How is this possible you ask? It is a mystery, Christ the incarnate Deity. He took on human flesh, For the sake of you and me. Jesus loves His mother, A love so pure and deep. She never abandoned Him, At Calvary she did weep. So run to Mary, And tell her your plea. She will ask Jesus, And you will get victory!

new poem, "The Gospel"

"The Gospel" Christ first appeared On a cold wintry night Snow was gently falling A lone candle gave light Born to the blessed Virgin Mary Sweet baby Jesus, the incarnate deity Emmanuel was now before us Oh what a heavenly sight to see Christ was now a man He began His earthly ministry The crippled were healed The blind could now see Christ is the Logos The living Word So open your ears Let the Lord be heard According to the Law We are dead in our sin A perfect sacrifice is needed A propitiation Jesus lived with His 12 Apostles He taught them all without exception But one would betray Him This man of perdition In the Garden of Gethesemane Jesus prayed And asked if He could forgo this bitter pill Our precious Lord sweat blood And He accepted the Father's will Christ was taken before the religious authorities They cruelly mocked Him The Romans brutally scourged and beat Jesus His life flickered dim Oh how our Lord suffere

new poem

"to sleep" I want to sleep A slumber so deep On my soft bed I shall rest my head I am exhausted and weary My sleep is tarry Much to my dismay I did not sleep all day I am plagued by insomnia so deep 'Tis vexing me so I could weep Now I hope to dream and snore A rest I'll truly adore by Zachary Uram (c) 2017

new poem

"autumn thunderstorm" It's mid afternoon Leaves rustle under foot A satisfying crunch I see my breath, suspended in the frosty air The fierce wind howls Swirling vortices in the leaves Rich vibrant hues saturate the ground Red, yellow, orange and brown The sky is overcast With dark storm clouds A gentle drizzle soon turns Into sheets of torrential rain I hear thunder crackle, Booming in the distance I soon see lightning It glows hot and sizzles, Piercing through the air Eventually the storm fades away The air smells fresh I return home by Zachary Uram (c) 2017

Obama - 8 years of utter failure and incompetence!

President Obama is without question the worst president in US history! His handling of foreign policy was inept and amateurish, his Obamacare abomination cost millions of people to lose their coverage, and it made the rates skyrocket for yet millions more, his handling of race relations were awful. What did Obama accomplish in 8 long years besides raising our national debt $9 trillion! He is an abject failure any way you look at it. In one week we'll be swearing in President Elect Trump and we should finally see some good governance!
