Weekend Wisdom: Showboat

I thought of this song from Showboat yesterday. It is one of the most important and impactful moments in musical theatre. I am thankful Mr. Robeson’s performance was immortalized on film.

Enjoy!

Weekend Wisdom: Jesus Knows

This Spiritual song was part of today’s Streams in the Desert devotional reading and then I found Louis Armstrong’s version of this song on YouTube. Enjoy!
 Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
 Nobody knows but Jesus
 Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
 Glory, Hallelujah
  • Sometimes I’m up, sometimes
    I’m down, oh, yes Lord
    Sometimes I’m almost
    To the ground, oh yes, Lord
  • Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
    Nobody knows but Jesus
    Anybody knows the trouble I’ve seen
    Glory, Hallelujah
  • If you got there before
    I do, oh yes Lord
    Tell all my friends, I’m
    Coming too, oh yes Lord
  • Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
    Nobody knows but Jesus
    Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
    Glory, Hallelujah
  • Although you see me
    Goin’ on so, oh yes
    I have my trials, here below
    Oh yes, Lord
  • Oh, nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
    Nobody knows but Jesus
    Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen
    Glory, Hallelujah
    Oh, glory, Hallelujah
  • Songwriters: FUQUA, HARVEY

Writing 201: A Non Poetic Update

I’ve failed at writing poetry for WordPress’s Writing 201.

The Haiku  is all the poetry I’ve managed to write. The limerick, free verse and other assignments have not come together.

Oh well, at least I attempted to stretch myself.

It is important to attempt new things in life because learning and growing are the keys to success.

The poetry challenge is not over yet so I might still find another form that is easy to write.

What challenges are you undertaking in order to learn and grow?
