I'm just an average 60+ year old American, raised on a farm in Connecticut. Through the years as a student, U.S. Marine, husband, father and Grampa, I have learned many things in life, the value of freedom, faith, family and to respect all people. These constant truths have guided me in life and made me the man I am today. In today's world to many people have forgotten this, instead they seek the biggest bank account, best home and the newest things or they expect life to be easy and all their needs should be given to them.
My poems are meant to get people thinking and having the conversations, which I believe are necessary to improve the future of our children.
A Tear is a drop of the pain we hold inside.
Spring flowers that open to greet the sun
Smell the fragrance of earth's impending rebirth
All life feels the sun and begins to feed,
children play in leaves as tree's shed them to renew
If love, hope, joy, children can survive. so can I
Spring is our time to set all things straight
Teach the joy in life to family shedding tears
It's why I put words together telling stories of life, faith and inspiration
