Poem


Family, Friends, And Freedom

...We must stand together
And make the decision
To end all of those things
That can bring, division.

Family, friends and freedom
Must go hand in hand
With tolerance for those
We may not understand.

Selfish greed and violence
And the "world corporation"
Will surely, be the downfall
Of, the worlds' greatest Nation.

9/11 was the day
We got, our wake-up call
And we must, do our part
"All for one, and one for all".

THANKS for being born here
(Or, coming here to live)
We must do all we can
GIVING, all we can give...

Poem



A TOUCH IN THE WIND

It was, a day for reflection
Starting, calm and so serene
Then,wind from those "Towers"
Started blowing, in between.

The names of Souls, spoken
Seemed, to alter nature's course
And what it seemed to be
They came to say, "Goodbye!", in force.

Reaching out and touching
All, who came to grieve
To say, "Get on with your life.
Because, we have to leave."

"But, we won't go far.
We'll be in every breeze.
And, if you listen, you will hear us
Rustling through the leaves."

"And, when those leaves have fallen
And the winters winds blow
Don't worry, we'll still be there
In every whirling flake of snow."

"Then when, the springtime comes
And all things grow, anew
Please take joy, in knowing
We'll still be there, with you."

"They may have stopped our "being"
But, our Spirits, will soar
When you feel us in, the blowing winds
Where we'll be, forever more."

Poem


Our Lawmakers are Too Busy

not taking care of our security and border

They are too busy doing nothing
And arguing about the same
Wasting our money and their time
With things like the "marriage" game.

Now they're too busy getting ready
To go home until next year
Not thinking "the report" is scary
No, they don't share our fear.

They don't seem to think there's danger
And the needed changes can wait
But, wonder what they will say
If they find out, next year was too late?

Poem



PRIVATE GALLERIES

Just think of all those images
Etched into every mind
Of every one who saw "it"
Each snapshot, one of a kind.

Each blink of the eye
Was another pic not seen
But, enough between the tears
Of, each horrific, scene.

Those pictures will always be
There, in our, minds eye
Locked in our private galleries
Until, the day, we die.

Poem



A LITTLE LESS

Well, it's been a year now
Since we had that nightmare
But, it seems like yesterday
With, all the pain still there.

Life for most goes on
But, for some, stands still
With that empty void inside
They try to find a way, to fill.

We can all reach out to them
And hold them in our heart
But we can't mend the hurt
That, tears theirs, apart.

No matter how we try
And no matter what we say
There's no way we can know
What they went through, that day.

It's just one year of hurting
That will last their whole life through
Shared with all the teardrops
That were shed by me and you.

But, we must count our blessings
In this "land of the free"
Although there aren't as many
As, there used to be.

Poem



UNTIL THE END, MY FRIEND

I don't ever think I've had
Since Oklahoma City
Something move into my soul
And the heart, of me.

The pain I feel inside
For all the human race
Makes me feel ashamed inside
And, want to hide my face.

I know I've always known
How cruel, we all could be
But, in the past year
Saw, more, than, I should see.

Nobody deserves
The wrath of the hate
But, then I stop and think
I didn't have to wait.

I've seen it all my life
But, didn't care to look
Until, I started writing
And, put it in a book.

A book, I shouldn't written
For, the words hurt so deep
And the memories I know
I know, I shouldn't keep.

But, it will never change
Until, we're no longer here
Because the human, is the death
Of, life, on Earth, I fear.

Poem


"Not Uniform"

They put on the uniform
And badge of silver/gold
And, it's been that way
Since the days of old.

They stand tall and take an oath
Swear, "To protect and serve."
But, it seems, they never get
The praise that they deserve.

They put their life on the line
And they don't fear the cost
Until their friends and families
Have to pay the "final cost".

We don't want them till we need them
And sometimes they'll seal our fate
Sometimes, they come too soon
And sometimes they come too late.

But, they are always willing
To come to our rescue
Or to help us with some things
Important, to me and you.

Sure! There are some bad ones
But most, are the very best
Who aren't afraid to stand firm
Face and pass the "final test".

We have to stand behind them
For they are all we've got
Between us and "the bad guys"
Who care for a lot of naught.

Poem




LIFE: THE UNFINISHED BUSINESS


The acts of men sometimes come so kind
And with such love do well express, yet
The deeds of men sometimes come so mean
And with great disgust is well despised.
These conflicts unresolved for times,
Someday, somewhere resolves to meet.

Between the times of history gone,
And the evolutions of future come
The present presents a balance point
In a mixing grill of settlement, where
Deeds and events do take their toll
In resolutions of investments made.

Mishap could be just a fair reward,
As life fortune is investment gained.
Opportunity could be just a means,
As occurrences are results obtained.
The pendulum swings to and fro,
Just as the clock ticks, tock and tick.

What goes on around and again,
Does come back again and around
Good or bad, it's all our choice,
For all our thoughts and acts today,
Are investments in the big game plan
Of this unfinished business of life.
