POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

I have the dreams

Of a young man,

Denying my age

In my fantasy.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

                                          REALITY II

 

Contrast the lives

Of the safe and the doomed,

The safe play video games,

The doomed

Struggle to survive.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: THE REWARDS OF ART

Time smooths the wrinkles

Of the artist’s life,

Smooth’s away the doubt

Depression and fear

Molding his art,

In life, the artist presses on,

For something is calling to him,

Not knowing the fate of his work,

Not knowing if the future will be kind,

Or dissolve him into nothing.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: MAINTAINING LIFE’S WORTH

CREATIVE IMMORTALITY

 

Those who create,

Who pour their souls

Into life

Should not age,

But continue

To create

As their strength

Provides power.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: TIME

The Value of Time

 

If time is meant

To be merely filled,

Why possess

Time?

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: SOFTENING THE PAST

My memories wander

To the days of my youth,

Long gone,

Softened by years

Memories dwell in

A fantasy world,

Hiding the scars

And the pain.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: THE MIND AND HAPPINESS

The world may

Deny happiness

If you are able

To think.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: A WRITER’S PLIGHT

A WRITER’S PLIGHT

 

You sweat,

You agonize

To provide words,

At some point after submitting

Time past with no response

You ask yourself,

‘Is anyone fucking listening?’

A writer’s life

Is a lonely one,

You may have friends

Others involved

With the same mission,

But when it comes

To work

You are alone,

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: SPLITTING WOOD

SPLITTING WOOD

 

On a crisp

October day

I once split wood

The entire afternoon,

Never tiring,

Never straying

From the mission

To keep winter warm,

Now,

Many years later

Walking is sometimes

A chore,

But I remember

Those October days.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: FORGETTING OUR FELLOW MAN

In this land,

Why is it

That when we gain wealth

The poor of the land

Are forgotten?
