"The LORD giveth and HE taketh," they say
No one said that your space will be left to decay
None can fill it
Some are too short or too small
Very docile or just too tall

They did not say that you would hover

Nora Aunor
By George P. Lumayag

The Super Snow Moon lighted our bleeding hearts,
That we’re staging the National Arts Month in February;
It reminded us to the king like the powerful wolf 
Who defaced the rules of artistry
That he butted his unverified thoughts

Depression suits you
Your badge of honor
Hidden to no one
Understood by you
Your identity

Fiercely holding
Close to your heart
Empty feelings
Your own mantra

Lack of hope
In a rut

Pinching of a Made Man

Caught in the act — 
That’s a boyz-to-men

kiss given to a rap sheet face
Blue reach long arms of the law
pinching another juvenile adult

The clanking sound of spurs, the sun’s glare
off the shiny doppelganger derringers.
Her hat tipped onto her sweating brow.

“Contests! We don’t need no stinking contests!”

Her cowhide boots kick up the prairie dust.
She’s not your quintessential grandmother.

Her torrential windpipe words ready for...Read More

I guess this had to be said
The root causes for the way
I am kept awake at night 
Summer heat no sleep
My only companions are
Past events and the opinions
My soul resents. 

I guess it had to be felt
Every reflection and failure

Badge of Honor

He was a straight-laced lawman,
who went strictly by the book
Before he took any criminal gunsmoke down,
he would give them

Said he would always give them a fair trial

A Nation Cries Out
Shed blood, protection of innocence, a badge of honor
An oath was made
Defense of liberties and freedoms
Restrictions placed, standards no more
Chaos and anarchy knock at our doors
Forlorn morals; a time forgotten
Democracy is dead, the people have no voice
Gray haired remnants, so...Read More

Half Measures
This is how it starts
the decline of who we are, the decline of something more
the start of wars
Installed in us is confidence
confidence, a blessing or a curse
Without confidence we stand degraded, disenchanted, alone
while with too much we kick down too...Read More

At Pointe Percee, a dragon's lair:

A hotspot where no tourist stamps their passport.
The roar of dragon’s mating, females laying eggs.
Wings of rushing waterfalls, winds of alcoholic breath.
They yearn to take flight, to frighten the deep and dark.

Tempting rain
The heavens wore gray 
a blanket of clouds hovered 
ensuing a roiling interplay 
of sun and impending shower
wrestling for control of the sky.

I was feeling gleefully energized
brazen enough to dare the rain to fall,
command the clouds to move away,

And Still I Cried
They told me that it was going to be alright,
My daughter what a pride,
Smiling, happy to have joined,
The symphony of military life.
Back then it was alright,
Till they brought her in a coffin,
A body gored without eyes,
A badge of honor,
And the...Read More

Coming of age
He was 11 when his first scars began to appear
In the beginning his scars were small and not very deep
Originating at school his hazing began

He was changing and his friends didn't like it
They teased him
He was a...Read More

An Accident

On August 20, 1963 I was on
The back of a motorcycle going slow
At a pace of ten miles an hour in front
Of a shopping center that bowed

The belly of the bow was a blind spot

" Some can never go home"

The house is now empty
and the walls painted in mildew and mold
It has a musky breath of unforgiveness
The wooden floor, once a place of refuge,
is now buckled, broken with rust stained nails
Footprints are measured in...Read More

I was always taught
Men shouldn't cry
Now when I look back
I'm left to wonder why

Lack of expression
Emotions held inside
Silly badge of honor
A mans stoic pride

Hearts that are broken
Pain from many years
Souls that are drowning 
In pools of unshed tears

Strength redefined

Who Am I
In naming who I am 
It names my country,
Family, profession,
All that I am.

Dare I face threat of 
Persecution, imprisoned
Torture or death, 
When I profess who I am?

When my life 
Is on the line
Nothing else matters,
But, who I am.
