Black and White answers for such heavily colored issues rarely make for valid solutions.
In your voice, I hear the truth,
And a hint of your sadness,
Blossoming are the sounds of your youth,
And even a touch of madness.
In your voice, I hear your hope,
And all the love you keep inside,
The will that you have to survive and cope,
And all the secrets you try to hide.
In your voice, I hear your strength,
And all the pain that you feel,
The power that drives you to go to any length,
And the faith that keeps you real.
With every word that you speak,
You know that you always have a choice,
The music of your soul will never become weak,
For this is the beauty I hear in your voice
I don’t know if it’s fate, or just lucky, but out of nowhere, people have been getting copies of my Short Story “Morning Warning” lately, and loving it. Published in July of 2013, I really hadn’t had much come from the story in sales since mid-2014… Now, people are taking interest. Have you read it yet? Now is your chance.
One thing to another,
One moment to the next,
Why do I even bother?
It all seems so vexed.
Feeling great of Saturday,
Means Sunday will likely be bad,
There must be a better way,
To get through this economic fad.
Money comes and it goes,
before I can even count it,
Even friends have become foes,
As nobody cares one bit.
Here today and gone tomorrow,
that has become the way of things,
Live in stress or in sorrow,
For that’s all money ever brings.
The water is blue,
The meadows are green,
The sight of this view,
This sudden breathtaking scene.
The sweet smell cast from the passing showers,
And the dew glittering in the trees,
The birds are on the flowers,
And so are the bees.
The warm sun has blasted into view,
The beauty of it’s blinding light,
With all the colors of the rainbow shining through the dew,
Bringing joy to the first morning’s delight.
This was my first poem, written in 1994
A moment of pure love and friendship,
A moment of sadness and shame,
A moment of pure pain and hardship,
A moment you feel that everyone knows your name.
A moment you feel light as a feather,
A moment you feel hard as a rock,
A moment you wish you were in the shoes of another,
A moment you’re in total shock.
A moment you wish you were far away,
A moment you’re in total control,
A moment you wish you could just end the day,
A moment when you’re holding the pistol.
A moment of giving birth,
A moment of facing life’s end,
A moment you want to leave this earth,
A moment you look just around the bend.
A moment is too important to ignore,
A moment for yourself or with a friend,
A moment you must treasure forever more,
A single moment from beginning to end.
