Freedom’s Color

America knows the truth.

Purchased with their sons...Read More

we'd always see the roth.
Where family causing friendship
was query to the troth.

And everything we'd spoken
was words etched into life
Where flowing as they settled
were fears come back as trife.

That everything we wondered
were words we didn't like

With you, life has given me an advantage
I've played with the switch and misused the voltage
I've made our connection susceptible to cancer
and created more questions, difficult to answer
I've landed us in a place of unpleasant temperatures
redemption then creates a schedule...Read More

In the heat of the action

When the battle is pitched

Retreats and advances

To give it my affection,
Than to shower you with...Read More

New possibilities call
To brave old souls
To unhinge odd madness
Forge time and space

Empowers stern action

Peace And Poverty
 What is, success,
if this is not a considerable
ever-continuing action
in either direction;
towards peace,
or poverty.

So, the mind and the heart,

upon taking action,
or; upon remaining idle.

Yes; the drought;
continues with us,
or; our ever-joyous
harvest together!
