I’ve Lost My Passion

I’ve lost my passion

I hope only for a while

Words flow less freely

Both mouth and mind are tongue-tied

Which causes me such great pain

Perhaps I need rest

Time to think and gather thoughts

Away from the screen

Putting pen back to paper

Maybe the old ways are best

Things of Dreams, of Hopes

Things of dreams, of hopes,

This life I live and all that I have,

The promise of America, a ghost long dead.

Stripped of humanity, stripped of dignity, I see the pain in her eyes;

Mine tear for her, for the psychopath she has become,

She hates her children, punishing them for their ignorance.

But who is to blame, we’ve offered our souls to the Devil with each election,

Perpetuating our own destruction, more of the same does not breed change.

Perhaps I am guilty as any choosing to write as my protest.

Is my hope to inspire sufficient?

Only time will tell.

Thanks for your Service

“Thanks for your service”,

Offered by friends to my son.

“It’s not about me”

His reply with a kind, but…

Instead it’s about

Those we can no longer thank

Because they are gone.

Please thank those still with us

And remember those who’ve past.

What is Our Purpose

What is our purpose

Living this life of struggle

With touches of joy

Fighting to enter this world

Then suffering to get out

In between is life

That can’t be taken with us

When we meet our end

Again I must ask…

What is our purpose
