To Not Breathe Pain And Die

The rain that reached the rural of my roof
Collapsed through ceilings cracked, a crying child
Sometimes I cry myself. A man I mourn
The day that I will die of deaths disease
In tale I tease my thoughts to take back time
When age was young, a yearling of a youth
But brother, I must battle this blind pain
As he that walked with faith on waters will

    YOu make yourself sound a bit old in this one, Johnny. YOu are still middle aged, aren't you? It is fascinating to me to find out how many poets here are way up there in years!!(and I'm sure getting there myself. haha)

    Oie, would scare the chicken dickens out of anyone, Johnny!! A memorable moment that only He, who "walked with faith on waters will" can subdue. Strange that these times can adhere to our here and now. Oh, wishing you and yours the best! Love, Mikki
