A Veterans Loss
Veterans go into battle with
The foe machine gun to vest
Toe to toe bringing freedom with
Every death until there is nothing left
Coming home seems to be a dream fighting
For hollow value at times it seems
The VA scandal is a sore spot by leaving
Veterans in the hallways to rot, all of this
Must stop and cease to find veterans shelter
And increase the health and peace!
A veteran's loss
When The Sky Cry's
"The sky cry's" when someone dies also
Does the sky cry? When someone is telling a lie!
Your every drop is like words telling me
What you've heard. So please don't be shy
Remember my friend this between you and I
Tell me about you and your entire splendor"
For one day to you my spirit I will "surrender"
You must guide me to my new home and I always
Know while with you I'm never alone. So cry and cry hard
IF you must for in me thee can surly.
"Trust" yes! I feel you I hear you I will always
Be here for you! So cry. The Sky
Please don't stop what you've been
Doing your success is around the corner
I understand it's been very hard "but"
You've come from so far. Never forget who
You are you're the best! Now give yourself
The test of weakness when you're at this point
Rise above you bad side and rise up and succeed
And if your motives and greed are stardom.
Then s shall it be!
Want to Be the Best
I want to be the best
Come all from the east and west
All coming to see and give me the test
I've always told my mom, no matter what life
Throws my way I'll dig in deep for my very best
Will I drop or will I rise? Won't I shock everything one with my
Grand surprise! Time will be my answer until the end
My best will be done I want to be the best of the best.
The Soul of the Ocean
Sometimes you can be so beautiful with your blue and greens
Sometimes you're so calm and others, you're too mean!
As sometimes I watch you from afar trying to figure out what
You're really are you're always moving forward then back
I'm still trying to understand "that" are you just waiting to attack,
Or when something goes down do you have my back? Hmm
The Soul of the Ocean
My dear ocean I've notice your waves are big and wild
Is this your forever forceful style? Please be kind to Surfs and
Mankind alike as well as the beach bum who sleep on your sands
At night. When I sit upon your sands and look on you and listen to
Everything you have to say I look back up to the sky and "ask"
why or why
Do I have to cry? Here we are again just you and I. ours souls
Together and I don't know why?
A Mother's Hardship
Yes you're in for a treat; all my life I've sensed defeat
Mom you weren't apparently around but, now my feet
Are on solid ground, you sense money and come around
I've been alone emotionally for years there was nobody?
Around to share my tears, nor fears, I been self- sufficient
In my ways, still I sit back and count the days, when I can
Look back at the past and smile but, I'm sure this won't happen
For a while, I go back and forgive your faults because, this
Was a talent that was self-taught?
Death on Swift Wings
Death on swift wings what are you crying for?
Dying isn't crying dying is at long last flying!
Flying around "free" as a bird. If you've been
Good you can stop when you hear Gods words.
Dying is like walking through "plush Meadow"
With the wind blowing like, you've never felt before!
But nothing compares when Saint Michael opens
That front door for you. And you ask is this a Dream
And he replies, no this is all cream babies! So enjoy
Yourself and enjoy all that be well! Because trust me ...
"You sure aren't in hell.
Death on swift wings. Silence!
Losing a Father
Now that I've loss a father
Why should I even bother?
With life that is now my life
Seem like a bad play somewhere I
Really don't want to stay just put me
In the ground next to my dad I know
That sounds pretty sad however, deep
Inside I'm so mad about the way life left
Me alone without a father now my plight is known
Tell me and yourself have to belong?
Once again into the darkness
In search for the light in lucid sight
To think today once more that right
To think today just once more! Is this all
Life has in store for me or can one be like
Sapp running through a tree with a branch
Point back directly towards me.
Clearance of Self
This is obviously for the clearance of self
It's just me here and I see no one else,
Careful not to step on anyone's toes
With life set before me just in front of my nose
I know the score and try to cope, I ask
For much mercy and plenty of hope for my objective
Is lucid and clear and I approach life without fear.
Reflection of One's-Self
I notice my mind becoming wiser year by year
Onward I continue without any core regret or fear!
I'm always at watch with my
Mind's eye looking how time fly's
Owning the innate core of my own truth
Sometimes perfect and other isn't cute
I look in the mirror and see things unaware
Going through this life without a care
I realize my flaws and wanted to share
No longer will this occur without an ear or a single
Deep in Thought
I'm sitting here deep in thought
Dreaming of a world without rot
Holding the hands of peace and unity
As clear to me as far as the eye can see
The figure in the dark certainly is me
Can I change my history and flaws?
No I cannot without reaching for a new plot
But I'm still here in deep thought!
Time in Time Out
Marvel in the beauty of the forest
This is what this poem is mostly about
We climb and we fall please allow to
Brief all of ya'll, I've been here
One and listening to the sky that's mighty
Fun hurt from the flaws of man plan to hear
And listen to trees form the desert and sand
I still a man time and time out!
Don't Know What to Do
I'm sitting quietly to myself and don't
Know what to do except to start writing
And maybe just maybe I get the clue
I've been writing since, I was twenty-three
But still truly is this really me? I think poems
Are insightful and many time "oh" so delightful
But still is all of this ambiguity really real ... please
Understand this is how, I truly feel pass or come what
May this be the place, I shall always stay.
Don't know what to do
Once more into the fusion
Life halts without conclusion
Head back tilted to the sky
A single leave falls by
Silence hovers over the calm
Be lucid and be strong
To Believe To Believe....!
Opportunity of Love
I choose to sample a taste of love
Soft as a touch of as a silk glove
Hold me tight all through the night
Fail to cease and increase the understanding
Forgive for the times, I seem too demanding
I love too hard and ever so strong at times
With my love I apologize through this and seal
Opportunity and Love
Family and blood bonds us together
Through this crazy life we are as feathers
Floating through stormy weather approaching
Separation without preparation Jesus be with us
All next to you I would like to always stand tall
Be there with me until the end true to heart you
Is an enduring friend delighted in family bliss I?
I seal all our fair-wells with a single kiss.
Family Ties ...
Need Another Job
I know we need another job each and
Every day I feel as if I'm being robbed
Punching a clock and there goes time
Tick-tock look who's still messing with
The same old clock, I know I need to stop
With the same
Could it be?
I wonder could it be
A world that exist without me
Trap in the illusion of self
I stuck in my mind without anyone else
Wisdom is mine to seek without rest
Have I really done my very best?
I know my life has meaning through
And through please, I ask what should
I do pause, think, and rest right ...?
Will my story end with this plight ...
I try because I can
I try to be a man
I try to open doors
I try to be always more
I try to be the best
I want to inspire the rest
I try for evermore
Grey is my life ever grey and true
Eyes wide open and only open to you
Find your place and sit-a-spell
Know that in spirit I am doing well
Valuable is the knowledge that was gained
Our main aim was to maintain, and we did
Now check our status ... follow me kids!
I bring forth a multitude of thoughts
Setting in a chair thinking of ... oh how
I've fought standing close in a distant
World, sharing all my splendor with my
One true girl, I go forward and back yet
Still not really understanding that?
School days are here once more
Who knows the anguish that lies in store?
Test and examines is this who
I really am? I've been going since the
Age of three ... will I ever finish? Please lord oh
Let it be obtaining a fabulous job to call my own
While my mind is stuck in the zone, which zone does?
You ask the one that's finally done with class.
Never again will I enter school, now I've graduated
And chilling with the best and will go home and take
Last Breath until There is Nothing Left
How dare one says I'm behind the curve
Outside of closed curtain thinking
Of the of the days passed and gone
Like us, twinkling in the sky at night
Not knowing can be quite a fright
Air in my lungs goes up and down
Strong but yet without a sound!
Looking toward the next life and
Will it come? I won't sit and wait
Because that make me dumb and
My life is a poetic story please lord
Put a crown on my head and fill me
With the glory.
Sometimes I'm wrong
I can see that something is definitely
Wrong because for some reason their
Not playing my sweet song I prayed
And stayed true, I sat back and watched the world
With my mind's eye wide open and with deep intent
And much focus ... I have enjoyed the history that was
I've put both hands together and looked above
Wondering is this really it for me or is my glass filled
With distain and misery? I've done my part ... I just want
A clean fresh start.
Behind the Curve
How dear one says I'm behind the curve
How can one presume to know and
Have such nerve, just looking for a chance
To enhance my status in my life,
Do I dare say it more than twice?
But I am now here relax one's mind
Including fear appreciate the knowledge
Given now one can see I'm truly driven.
Behind the curve!
Love Clock is One and the Same
As happy as the day is long for you
Do I release this poetic and beautiful song
You're my saving grace, I would do anything
To see your face, no one knows how my
Heart breaks wish you could be here
Knowing I always have your ear, you're like
Solid rock and when I image you my heart stops,
For a moment or two makes me thankful for loving you,
Even when I'm alone my heart continues singing our
Steady Love Absent but not forgotten
love is in the air without a single worry or care, know that I will be with
you during times of struggle, I take comfort in knowing that we are
indeed true lovers, being without you is a challenge to me through and
through but erased because you are you! I think of you both at night
and day, your name I take to the lord when I always pray. Love you
dearly and sincerely, can't wait until the day you are near me once again,
because after all you are my best friend. Love peace and more love, if I
could, I would release a dove!
