A Poem for Thought


Transparency: A Virtue


Pretenders hide their goal to hurt you
Where some pretend to be what they are not
But true transparency is a virtue

So many play games; their purpose sought
Deception being a tool in winning
Until it seen through and one is caught

Relationship lost; the one is grinning
Walking away with no hurt feelings
For the game was theirs from the beginning

While the other spends time in healings
For as was thought this one was real
Time in recovery from the bad dealings

Hope in finding one that is the real deal
Remaining real to self and others to see
For real you've been to one's appeal

When real to self morals become key
Though pretenders hide their goal to hurt you
Your ethics keep as you do agree
True transparency becomes a virtue

Thoughts: Today moral and ethical standards in presentation of one's self is becoming more and more rare. Especially with Social Media making deception possible. Read meaning to Virtue according to Merriam-Webster dictionary at https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/virtue.  and meaning to Transparency at https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/transparency. When told by your boss you are the most honest, genuine, and transparent person at your job and that others can learn from you says a great deal about your presentation of self. But, what is crazy is when all you are doing is being yourself. Makes one wonder where did being your self in being transparent stop being the norm. And, in doing so, one having to become cautious of others. Good to always be yourself, no matter what the dealing is with another because today transparency is a virtue.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
