“THE LAST MAN TO LET YOU DOWN” by JTK.CA

“THE LAST MAN TO LET YOU DOWN” by http://JTK.CA

Many of you knew Dad (http://bit.ly/DadChronicles) was a pastor. However, before I or any of my siblings were born, he was an apprentice funeral director and embalmer. He would joke, I was the last man to let you down. His name was David Ketchen, and one day, at the kitchen table, my brother Mike Ketchen said to him, Dad, did you realize that you were an embalmer and your intitials are DK? Say, DK, fast, and you'll get the joke. Another day, as a pastor, Dad was talking with someone on the phone about a congregation member who was giving him grief, and I heard him say, Maybe I should go back to embalming. They didn’t give me any trouble. JT Ketchen (also read my http://bit.ly/eulogy-for-dad)

"IF LOVE IS A TWO-WAY STREET, I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO DRIVE" :::: © JTK.CA

"IF LOVE IS A TWO-WAY STREET,
I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO DRIVE"
© JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Will you accept my faults and foibles,
And will I give them up for you?
Two key questions to ask
When choosing a relationship.

My fantasies are one-sided,
Me-sided,
But you are real,
And not merely put on earth to make me happy.
So what do I want?
I'm writing this poem,
So even I'm not sure.
You probably have a better grasp on it than me.

Clue me in,
If you get the inclination.
Then ask yourself,
"Will you accept my faults and foibles?"
And I'll ask myself,
"Will I give them up for you?"

TRUE LOVE will answer, "Yes,"
To both questions.
Anything else is JUST AN ILLUSION.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
© Tad "JTK.CA" NudistPoet

TAD'S NOTE: I was once pining after a girl, and a friend
asked me, "What do you want?" I answered, "I don't
know." Remembering his reaction, "That's profound,"
always causes me to chuckle. Life's romantic
quandaries are profound, sad, happy, beautiful, and
miserable, at the same time. Unrequited love
can be a "Sweet Misery," like the title of the
Michelle Branch song. I'll comment on "requited"
love once I've experienced it. When those fun
internet surveys ask me which I prefer, hugs or kisses,
I always answer:
"Hugs; not enough experience with kisses.
Insert violin music here."

It's amazing how much we desire
While not truly knowing what we desire.
Often, the desire can be
A sinful contempt for all the riches we already possess.
We want something because we don't have it;
Then once we get it, we store it on a shelf,
Where it lies forgotten for years.

“ROUGH AND TUMBLE” by JTK.CA

“ROUGH AND TUMBLE” by http://JTK.CA

When the going gets tough,
Will the tough run away?
Will the weak ones stay?
It wouldn’t surprise me at all
If the weak ones save the day!

Only the tough times show
Who the tough ones are.
But beware,
The truly tough ones — each will wear a scar.

The tough from the weak;
The weak from the tough.
A label’s not enough.

QUESTIONS AND THE ANSWER”
© Tad (http://JTK.CA) @NudistPoet a.k.a. Jonathan Tad Ketchen

“What now?”
Inquired fear of apathy.

How long
Will free souls dance with tyranny?

When
Will hoping end our hopelessness?

Where
Will the searchers find their place of rest?

Why
Is it that we question everything?

Who is our answer?
Who is our King?

The only answer that we’ll ever need
Is Jesus Christ upon the cross of every deed
And every thought in which good has fallen ill.
The only remedy is that Perfection’s blood did spill.

“What now?”
Inquired death as Christ rose again.

“How long,”
We ask,
“until our Jesus comes again?”

When
Will freedom invade every heart?

Why
Will many turn away from a brand new start?

Who is your answer?
Who is your King?

Where
Will the searchers find their place of rest?
Don’t turn the Son of God away.
Don’t miss out on God’s Best!
“SOMETIMES YOU NEVER”
© Tad (http://JTK.CA) @NudistPoet a.k.a. Jonathan Tad Ketchen

Sometimes you never
Know what’s left of feelings until they’re gone.

Sometimes you never
Open up until the door is closed.

Sometimes you never
Dive . . . for fear of falling.

Sometimes you never
Fall . . . for fear of splashing.

Sometimes you never
Splash . . . for fear of getting wet.

Sometimes you never
Get wet . . . for fear of drowning and waking in the pit of Hell.

But,
After death wins out,
Six feet above you will stand
A gravestone engraved with
Our only memory of you
“SOMETIMES I NEVER DID.”

CHANGING WORDS by http://JTK.CA
 

Although I am all for gender-inclusion, I am against the recent emergence of gender-inclusive Bible translations. The Bible was not written in a gender-inclusive time, and if the Bible is truly the Word of God, as we claim; our translations should be as ACCURATE and PRECISE as possible, not as COMFORTABLE as possible.

It's all or nothing, not some or something. It's going all the way or not at all. Mediocrity makes me cringe and choose to binge on nothing. -- http://JTK.CA

"A TEAR IN THE CEILING OF HIGH EXPECTATIONS" by JTK.CA

“A TEAR IN THE CEILING OF HIGH EXPECTATIONS” by http://JTK.CA

Damage from a flood of forgotten memories,
Ever before me and above me,
But ignored for a sense of closure.

Grief just crept into
My dreams, letting all hope
Disintegrate before my eyes,
Ashes mocking my dreams of resurrection.
Death is death,
And that is that.
Could it be,
Despite all my religious treaties
Between now and then?

Grief crept in,
Like a spider through the cracks in my wall,
The tears in my ceiling
From a leak stopped years ago,
But a constant reminder of life’s imperfections.

My best friend died decades ago,
And ever since, I’ve had dreams of him being resurrected,
Yet totally oblivious to his death.
The rule in the dreams was
I could enjoy his friendship again,
But I could not tell him the truth of this being his second life.

Then, tonight, he died again (in a different way than before);
But this time, right in front of me,
As he cursed me to my face.

Suddenly his death is real,
Decades later;
The Reaper curses as he comforts me with dreams of ashes.
