Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


Warriors and Men

Rising again

Facing the task before me

Stitched up wounds

What must be will be

The wise men spin tales of heroism

The jesters lighten the mood

I study the movement of the wind

Pondering my next move

Signs of Life 

Finding a seam within the darkness 

He thrusted his single engine towards the gap

It had been years since light was known

He had never stopped in his search for this now mythic like opening 

To see light for the first time since the wars ended, brought tears to his eyes

Remembering how the earth was once decorated with the sun’s rays

As he crossed through, he looked back and saw how the nuclear missiles had totally ravaged Mother Earth 

Cities, structures, landscapes, totally desolate and barren

That was the last time he would ever look back

His focus was now on finding other survivors, other signs of life

The seam in the darkness slowly closed behind him

What Will Be Left?


What will be left for the children?

War torn structures and environments

Countries devastated by poverty and disease

Has the field of dreams been burned to the ground

Neglected and malnourished by the higher-ups

Taking education out of the hands and hearts of teachers

Devising a common system

Robotic, test, test, test

Leaving the children without passion and creativity


What will be left for the children?

Empty magazines from assault rifles

Shell casings from black market pistols

No, it’s not just inner city, it’s all city

Nationwide, global


What will be left for the children?





Hopefully, LIFE!


Music: White Lion “When The Children Cry”

I love this song and it is still relevant to this day.


Your Eyes




I find happiness in your eyes

Even when my sky is not as colorful

When the media feeds me stories of death and decay

The devil pricks me with needles just to have his laugh

But I am fine, I am good

I wear your love on my bones to keep my soul warm

I find happiness in your eyes

My heart still blossoms with hope

I take refuge in God, laying on his floor of compassion

Covering myself with thoughts of you

The sky is a greyish hue this evening

From my refuge

Across the distance

I can only see your eyes

I find happiness in them

I Imagine Too (John Lennon Tribute)

It would be great

if when strangers meet

there would be no suspicious looks

or judgemental glares

brothers would truly be brothers

equality amongst humanity

weapons down

war is stricken from the vocabulary

global peace becomes prevalent

the eyes of our children shine bright with hope

and love means more than another romantic comedy

as Lennon’s voice echoes in the background

I am imagining too
