POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: CONFUSION

THE PAST AND PRESENT

 

I recall the little boy

Full of hope

And no one

To give him

Guidance.

Thoughts beyond

His young mind

Could not understand.

 

He became a man

And as in his youth

There are no answers.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

THE SECRET MESSAGE

 

I know I promised to return to the art of writing, but thoughts and life interfere.

 

Life

We settle

For the superficial,

That is what we are taught,

What we are trained to accept,

But those

Who think beyond,

Pondering their existence,

Pondering questions

Their life does not fulfill

Risk madness,

Or perhaps,

True happiness.

OUR NATION’S HEART WEEPS

I hesitate to write this piece. Knowing human nature I am sure many will write articles about the tragedy in Los Vegas to express sorrow but a hidden reason, perhaps hidden from themselves, is to draw attention. With this in mind I write this article, not to draw attention but to voice an attitude I don’t understand. Therefore, I am not including any taglines for this piece. I don’t

When Sandy Hook occurred resulting in the death of twenty six and seven year olds, I thought things may finally change. That the nation would wake up to a wrong some hold dear. I have nothing against hunting. But who hunts with a semi-automatic weapon. Handguns are used to protect one’s family. But who needs a semi-automatic pistol to protect that family. I don’t understand how anyone can purchase a mass amount of weapons and not raise a red flag.

As I hear the numbers of fatalities I think this is not a shooting, this is the result of a plane crash. Then when I hear the number of fatalities and wounded, I think, this is not a shooting, this is on the level of a natural disaster. Unfortunately, this disaster is all too natural in our country.
