Winds Of Time

Fighting glory, challenge death,

Moments pass, until last breath,

Strike a nail, take the lead,

No more worry, lost at sea,

Tell my story, forget me not,

Family first, a child of art,

As they close, one last time,

A tear is left, to winds of time


Weary Traveler

Welcome lone traveler, how far have you come,

Eyes of exhaustion, weathered to numb,

Shoes in a tatter, clothes full of earth,

Skin full of scars, flesh of raw dirt,

What travel has brought you, welcome lost soul,

Come rest in the warmth, bathe off the cold,

I one of not much, yet humble in life,

Your needs are now more, I share in our plight,

With two words he spoke, I shall never forget,

“Bless you” kind sir, last tear is for death

Frozen Earth

Frozen tundra, frost of fate, every thought, I must escape? –

As I embark, upon this lesson, left or right, adverse progression, indecision, family fate, to feed so many, a pressure great,

A journey north, to be the best, no walking back, toward success, this plunge I take, shall cost me dearly, filtered fear, as depth reveal me,

Arctic air, feed flesh and bone,

My story cold, now left alone,

If sun shall shine, upon on my chest, the weight of burden, left to death,

Frozen earth, what has become me?

Winter’s burden, death amongst me! 

Abandoned Path

My heart cannot bleed,
Nor speak of a truth,

Lungs fail to breathe,
Eternal sleep now renewed,

Emotion is absent,
Left to a past,
Light steady brightens,
This hall to repass,

This moment you realize,
What might be a last,

Touch from a loved one,
The notion to laugh,

Trepidation turns stare,
Which path do I choose,

One road seeming peaceful,
The other abused,

My journey not fruitful,
Each day lived a struggle,

Only one path is chosen,
Toward left a rebuttal,

With body and mind,
steady drawn to the right,

Appearance of ease,
Toward harmony’s light,

Agita stricken,
Who am I to decide,

Eyelids now shut,
All thoughts are benign,

Soft gentle breeze,
Calmly felt on my skin,

Eyes now wide open,
I’ve awakened again
