We Are a Poem

You will not 
    seperate us.
For it is hate
    and love that made us.
It is the great and the small
    that reverberate within our bones.
It is every syn and antonym,
every opposite every known,
    the many, the alone.
         We are a poem.
You will never 
    isolate us
for it is truth
    and art that made us.
         We are a poem.

Remember This Soldier

Think of him who in slumber is restless 
with images too horrific to claim -
a soldier with courageous smile whose love
is guarded. He'll never be quite the same.
Impenetrable, he never speaks of
comrades whose souls remain on foreign fields.
He knows not, in wake of day, where he fits.
His wounds from battle have not healed.
Think of this soldier who again and again
reenlists, selflessly for his country.
He is a proud husband, father, and friend.
I ask that we remember him, and then, 
I ask for the Lord to ease his burden.

A Big Red Bow

Liberties subtle whisper, kicked up dust, his boots it lingers. 
	Glistening brow, hope pours by sweat drips, reflecting restless weathered fingers.

Foreshadowed looks a worried face, brave hearts strength, unnerved by grace,
     Freedoms song his heart starts pounding, inspired backbones, by foot they race.
Our family’s values together they’ve protected, Integrities goodness they protect our land, 
	She too marched forward, a mothers love, by flags freedom, united we stand.

A Veteran’s life, we stand hearts open, respects gratitude to embrace we go, 
	A life we’ve dreamed by generations thriving, our gift wrapped freedom, in a big red bow.

Running, after more than you, can hold.
Taking, someone else’s love, and leaving.
Children are fearful of what they’re told.

Can’t you see I’m the one who’s freezing?
I was just a child with a trinket 
Never knowing that it’d be, more to me

When you were gone to, too far, from me.
Steady with your hands close to my heart
Never letting our world’s tear us apart

I know, your icicles 
I miss the beaches that we played on
You missed the child in your own eyes

Now you’re gone, 
But I’m still not here.
Why can’t you wake up 

I’m not ready
Please, just take your time, don’t leave now
I can’t fight this world alone.

The Meaning of the Flags With Stars

See the flag
with two stars
in the white
surrounded by heart

honor pride
courage and love
the whole package from above

god is here
in us all
in the soldiers
who rise and fall

give your love 
and warm hearts
to the men away
doing their part

See the flag
with two stars
in the white
surrounded by heart

Honor Our Veterans

we all love our freedom
yet we despise
the wars that have been fought
we say we love our Veterans,
but do we truly honor them?
    is the concept of freedom
    possible without the concept of war?
    I honestly think not
    contemplate that now and then
we all wish it could be so
but too naturally comes opposition
too many points of view
opposing ideals continuing to flow
    one thing we must remember
    our Veterans served our country
    they did not start the wars
    they answered the call of duty
so, if you love America
you must love our Veterans
for without them
we would have no freedom
    God bless America!
    And God bless our Veterans!

The Land I Love

This is my declaration,
This is where I take my stand,
A Citizen, a Veteran ,A Grown *** Man
The things I see daily
Came as a total surprise,
A President with no Integrity,
Everyday spouting new LIES,
A Congress that should balance,
Everyday closes its eyes,
A Congress that should check ,
Everyday tells me pigs fly,
If I cant trust those that lead,
Then what options are left,
MAY My Strength be My WEALTH.
May the training I was provided,
See me through the coming storm,
May the blood of my former leaders

A Cognitive Dissonance

We love the blossoms beauty 
We ask only for the beauty to grow.
Yet we war and destroy the blossoms
More surely than the snow.

We war and claim to love the earth
We war and poison the dirt
That produces the withered blossom
That produces the wilted blossom

We listen to the music to lighten our hearts
Then we go to war and destroy our ears
So we can n o longer hear the music start
Wee war forever and ever for years

Valentine and Spring

Emotional lift waves the hand of my rhyme
Its flourishing the vanity of time
With a tight hug of warm feeling
just loving  such whispering of sweet jiggling 

I feel its a treat from passionate spring
I treasure the memories you always bring
All my words mean nothing
if I don't feel you in my each and every breathing.

sunny and buoyant spirit of thy
Touch me always and fly me high
Often you are on my mind
to cherish the  benevolent smile of the wind.

I love you right from the very start
Now its a open note of my heart
Hear the music of the ever green spring
you will find the smell of valentine ring.

Crosses stand in silent rows
Stretching across sun-drenched fields.
White faces reflecting sun’s morning bright
And shadow moon’s quiet light.
Thousands rest in peace
Their lives given for peace.

No more guns
No more whistling shells
No more shouts of fear
No more thundering sounds
No more flying bullets 
No more cries of pain

Only peace
Is here now

And the silent shout to 
War no more

Love . . . 
That is the answer

Only love

Memorial Day

On this day we remember,
Those who have fallen.
The men and women who left,
Home to fight the fight, walk the walk
And signed the blank check.
We dedicate ourself and our life to,
This country that we call home.
If we do fall just know that we,
Did it for Duty, Honor, Country.
We stand for the flag and,
Kneel for the fallen.

Memorial Day is for the fallen.
Veterans Day is for those who serve,
Or have served.

Don't thank us on Memorial Day.
We didn't sign the check.
We didn't give our life so others may live 
We kneel for the fallen.
We mourn for the fallen.
We still fight for the fallen.

fireworks or gun fire?
If you suffer from PTSD does it matter?
Hurting their heart, and their dogs’ ears.
And yet, we love them in America.
Where vets are suffering every time, they hear them.

The lady is my number-one homie.
Our hearts beat as one all metronomey.
Falling in love was not a decision;
Our souls were destined for this collision.

Freedom's Flag

Briskly she beats against a stormy breeze
with innocent, valiant, vigilant stains
of liberty warriors overseas
carried over mountains, lakes, seas, and plains.

Surviving, she stands, united and strong
belonging to all cultures and races,
hoisted on faith, held high with honor's song
and the love America embraces.

Gently she waves in freedom's stadium
throughout hearts with hands resting upon them,
with a rhythmic pulse pounding like a drum,
and grateful eyes glisten just like a gem.

Our Banner is billowed; We all applaud
for one nation united under God.

Afro Knight


Nelson Mandela was his name , he was a hero. Captain Africa carrying the cross like Jesus.

A fight to the finish.... patience was my super power.
Twenty seven years of meditation....the Victory.
Your heart is made of gold.

A nation divided by hate!
Ignorance! The disgusting violence between seasons together they howl the winds of life, different shades one soul.

I wanna be like you , talk like you! Do a Madiba dance like you.
Love like you did! Forgive! Forget ....lived! A hero , an African Hero.

Veterans Day

As we remember those who served our country this day, Let God hear our prayers and everything we say.
Watch over these men and women who serve with your Mighty light, when they defend our Country while in a fight.
Lord today we also honor those brave heroes who fought for this country and lost their life. Let's pray for peace in the world of no more conflict and Strife.
So let's send loving prayers for those soldiers who are far away, that they come home safely to those who love them and stay.

Military Appreciation Night

A once-in-a-year special night
To remember. It isn't just about 
The free "thank you" meal,
It's about reconnecting 
With a large community of veterans.
How often does that happen?
It's an absolute delight 
Being in the company of 
Truly extraordinary 
Men and women worthy of respect.
I love making the rounds
Saying hello to some people 
I haven't seen in a year;
Exchanging fond memories 
And lots of laughs.

Soldier Love

Veterans deserve respect
Not ignorance and neglect 
Every day I can not wait
To see a military car plate
I will salute every one
Thanking them for all they've done
Buying them a drink or meal
Will give them a happy feel
Any uniform I see
On someone in front of me
Will always hear thanks and hello
For the gratitude I show
It really doesn't take much
To add a special daily touch
And make a soldiers day more grand
They are protecting the land
We all live in without fear
Please show them how much we care
