high school love

we offered our hearts
       eagerly sketched in wet sand....
             entwined initials
              
whispered in the wind
        promises too young to keep…
            first kiss at sunset
                            
a chill from the sea…
        such fragile love would vanish 
            in a wave of tears

Playground

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings
TIME TO SCREAM!

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

School Days

Alarm screams TOO LOUD
Just five more minutes, I beg
But life is ruthless.
Sitting through classes
That drag on for far too long
Barely time to eat.
trudging through schoolwork
Until wee hours of night
Crashing until light.

sagging baggy pants

sagging baggy pants
below buttocks reveal an 
insecure person

so pull them up, hide
your offensive parts, find your
purpose for living

become more secure
by using your talents to
make a better world

Frenetic feet tap;
Across the room

Interfering With the Learning Process

 Leaders who inter-

Fere with the learning process

Will fail hard  life's test.

 

Teachers who are blamed,

For a leader's mishaps will,

Have God's back and in,

 

Every ferocious at-

Tack the power of the leader,

Lessens and leaves no,

 

Matter how many,

Tricks are up his sleeve. The thief,

Is in him and that's no,

 

Lie. Leaders who int-

Erfere who the learning pro-

Cess won't ever be blessed.

 

 Leaders who inter-

Fere with the learning process

Will fail hard  life's test.
