His Thoughts

 His Thoughts I wrote this poem June 14, 2016.  My devotional that day assigned me to write briefly about how God may think of me.  This is what flowed out of that time sitting in my back garden in the cool of the day. When my chin is down, my face forlorn, You never stareContinue reading “His Thoughts”

Where My Heart is Bleeding

It has been awhile since I posted a poem.  This one was given to me a few months ago and I wanted to share this with you.  A friend, Joel McCubbin, also helped me to revise and get the “flow” of this song down pat!

Butterfly, oh Nancy

Greatness To be given a lot we must start with a little We must nurture that little each jot and each tittle And as we continue to express gratefulness Character is formed into faithfulness The quiet still moments that no others see Little do you know will then set you free   To care forContinue reading “Greatness”

Is Walking a Right?

~I wrote this poem today.  I had driven two hours to see my prosthetic provider and was a little early.  As I sat in the car dreading the moment of walking in and going through the emotional trauma yet again this came pouring out of me onto the paper I managed to gather from aroundContinue reading “Is Walking a Right?”

Memory Lane

Memory Lane – Ashly P. Ash Today I strolled on down the lane Was filled with pain to my disdain Physically I was so distraught As each and every step I fought But there with me was a precious child One so sweet, meek and mild I knew that I must carry on But inContinue reading “Memory Lane”

Warriors are Made

This Poem is in conjunction with my recent writing:  “Operating from a Healthy Standpoint – Giving Feedback”.  (https://crutchprints.com/2013/11/14/operating-from-a-healthy-standpoint-providing-feedback/) Warriors are Made It is so hard to hear you speaking like this I really can’t see how you can miss The point and the pity is all that you gain Emptiness really one in the sameContinue reading “Warriors are Made”
