I woke today

I woke today
only half the man I was yesterday

Newtown still rings out, 
as the souls of the lost ring inside my head.

I woke today......

    Michael , making an appearance on the soup today. Only 2 wish you this coming year to be a glorious one in which rewards all your future poetry with success. I love the time I took out of the first day of the year. 1-1-2013* :-) Just to wish you the best of 2013. Take care my dear poet friend. PD

    Returning to this one, The reason it is so good is because you said a LOT with few words. That is the sign of a good poet!

    Jack, thank you....I've been off of here for quite a while, a friend asked me to write something regarding the incident. Living in Colorado, I've witnessed Columbine, and most recently aurora....hard to write a positive. I am going to ask one of our contest creator's how to post a poem someone shared with me on this topic. It's not mine, has the poets name and home state, but I don't know if I can post it with out fear of plagiarizing, or posting with out their permission...even if I acknowledge them Good to see a reply from you and look forward to reading more of your work :)
