Loyde P. “Snake” Arender


Across the stormy seas of my tormented soul
There’s a beautiful sunset for me to behold
But to reach it, I alone must sail
These stormy seas of torment and hell
For on the voyages that I have taken
I have seen many men be shaken
By the sights that I have seen
So I pray that my sunset be serene
And I truly believe that it will be
For my God in heaven sees the love in me
For only God knows that which my soul contains
And with my life’s sunset, he will ease all pains
For as the sun sets on my worldly life
The torment will pass leaving no strife
For just beyond life’s sunset, I will find my prize
Because in this life’s sunset lies my eternal sunrise
