Give Me Yesterday

The poems I have selected are mostly true to life personal experience, regarding feelings of love, hurt, and desperation. Unusually hard to describe ways of thinking put in writing regarding friendship, broken hearts, and relationships. My expression of camoufl aged emotions bottled up inside. Some of the poems are just fi ctional silly shorts. A number of these poems are feelings I had which came a little too late to say in person and several that you just dont want to share with anyone. Just a few simple poems that were my way to free my heart at any given time. The pictures I have chosen are of my family, including my animals and places we have journeyed to.
This collection of inspirational poems about faith, hope and love may be used as praises, including sung praises. They celebrate life and its challenges, searching for “why” in the times of trouble, grief, nostalgia, joy and peace that come with surrendering to God. They also give thanks to God for always being there despite our imperfect nature as His children. One of their characteristics is the writer’s consciousness of the limited time and seasons of God’s creation versus the eternity of God the Creator—the transient state of the world versus the unchanging nature of God. The writer combines lyric poetry with a modern approach that is flexible in terms of form, rhyme and rhythm. It is influenced by tonal language, a rhythm used for centuries in sub-Saharan Africa, China, Vietnam and a great part of Eastern Europe. Their focus on spiritual and religious themes portrays the writer’s feelings, state of mind, and perception and, as such, may touch the emotions of its readers who can personally relate with the words of the poems or with the lyrics of the songs.

Based on the author’s childhood this fictional novel is filled with spirituality and humor and gives the reader a glimpse into the world of a Baptist minister. Set in 1963, Rev. Shepard and his family move to Millington where he has been called to pastor the Great Saints Baptist Church. Millington is a small town that is racially divided by the river that runs through it. The whites occupy the town’s west side, while a community of influential Negroes occupy the east side. During this literary journey, the lives of the church members and townspeople are exposed and we bear witness to an adult world of scandal, secrets, and disgrace. Before he can get settled into his new position, Rev. Shepard is bombarded with the needs of church members. The timid Murlene Combs whose husband has fallen prey to the town whore, Magic, is in serious need of counselling. Other Millingtonites are Rev. Barry Nichols, whose love of himself makes him vulnerable to the temptations of Magic; the Higgins’ who struggle through an old family secret; Billy, the giggly kid who cannot maintain his composure during church; Sadie Green, the church secretary who is always complaining about her corns; the controversial Deacon Chester Hawkins; Smooth, the pimp from The Bottom; and a den of gossiping woman. Love and salvation emanate from the trials and tribulations of the denizens in Millington. While some are redeemed, the damned must pay the price for their sins.

My poetry is often referred to as straight from the heart most of my poems were inspired from my own personal experiences or from the inspiration I felt when talking to others .not necessarily my thoughts but the way I thought the other person felt, Within these pages you will find the expressions of many emotions tears of joy, sadness, laughter, love and many others, Some may even make you shed a tear or two, if so I was probably shedding a few of my own when I wrote it, I tell my friends and family that these poems were written in tears and they truly were. Not all of my poetry is sad and should apply to both male and female of all ages . I hope you enjoy my book and if you would like to comment on any of them you can contact me at mcaskeydrake @yahoo.com
In the tradition of H. G. Wells's The Shape of Things to Come, W. Warren Wagar's A Short History of the Future is a memoir of postmodern times. Cast in the form of a history book, the narrative voice of the book's powerful vision is that of a far-future historian, Peter Jensen, who leaves this account of the world from the 1990s to the opening of the twenty-third century as a gift to his granddaughter. A dazzling and imaginative combination of fiction and scholarship, Wagar's speculative history of the future alternates between descriptions of world events and intimate glimpses of his fictive historian's family through the ages. Jensen's tale traces the flow of the future from the early twenty-first-century reign of a megacorporate global economy, to its sudden collapse in 2044, when nuclear catastrophe envelops the world. In the traumatic aftermath, a socialist world commonwealth comes into being in the year 2062, followed by a lengthy transition to a decentralized order of technologically mature autonomous societies, many located in outer space. The riveting literary interludes that follow each chapter take the form of letters and documents from the history of Jensen's family, evoking the everyday lives of people in the midst of these global-historical events. Here we meet a woman in Brazil whose son is dying from a new immuno-deficiency disease, two brothers comparing life on earth with life in a space colony, and many more. Neither fiction nor nonfiction, Wagar's brilliantly creative work is not meant to forecast the future, but rather to draw attention to possibilities and alternatives for humankind and planet Earth. In doing so, it also serves as an unforgettable reminder that the future is being made now.
