3000 miles from 3am

You're 3000 mile away
its 6 am
I'm in my own bed
dead asleep
my phone rings
its 3am
but your voice could wake me from a coma
you're 3000 miles away
and its only 3am

The Sentinel

On the front line stands a man 
set
to give last breath

He walks in death’s dark shadow
brave
the sentinel

a keen watchman
fulfills solemn oath
who watches out for him?

Death of Freedom

(Nonet)



The heart of the eagle fills with grief
as she flies over our nation
and sees the death of freedom.
Her tears fall over all
America, land
of tyranny,
no longer
of the
free.

Aung San Suu Kyi

Flower in People’s Heart

Arrested! Contained! Remanded just the body
The iron heart will never, never surrender
The tip of the people's arrow for democracy
Flower in heart will blossom over dictators!
