Destination Fixation
As I get older and I see so much dissatisfaction,

They chase it all their sorry lives, a delusion that is fed, 
By a strong...Read More

Winter Weary - A seasonal tale
Winter Weary
A rhyme that sends a winters “chill’.
With snow, not knowing where to start.
But as he’s had some time to “chill”. 
A fellow with a changing heart.

Never wavier, never stale
All abundant  we inhale
Blessings come and sorry stales
Even with both feet on the ground
and this I've found, and this I've found

 Chorus:
:God is blessing
God is testing
God is providing all for all
God is gracious...Read More

The Abyss
It’s like standing at the edge of an abyss.

Watching and being watched,

Gravity pulling you and you nearly let go of the fear and simply end it.

Take that final step, 

Leave all that you knew behind.

Look before you leap they say,


Everything...Read More

A World of Dreams and Healing
There are times when giants kneel
and meditate and pray
for fright or guidance
We are not gods
There is space and the unending universe
Something far greater which supersedes all mankind

It’s time to show our truth
Our feelings hurt
Often unaware of what’s about
Shootings, killings, war,...Read More

One Foot On The Porch
He kept one foot in the stirrup
And one foot on her porch. 
Wasn’t sure what he was doin’
But he shor' had the torch.

Didn’t know just what he wanted,
Or just what he should say.
If she’d just give a little hint,
He knew...Read More

To our programs so we must be resilient

Just Who Do You Think I Am
I was a very BAD chick-a-dee
so mom grounded me for life
Clipped my wings; now I can’t fly
(I buried my head in shame)

Can't keep both feet on the ground
but man, just watch me RUN
50-60 MPH top end speed
I can REALLY fly...Read More

I Drew A Heart

I can't watch a happy ending,
Guy gets the gal,
Girl gets her pal,
I can't do it with out crying.

Maybe I'm like you,
maybe you cry too.
I'll tell you why I do,
will you tell me too.

I never got mine.
Said I'd be fine.
That was just...Read More

From across this frozen wasteland
I spot a solitary amber light on shore
I wonder if they are looking at me
Or wondering what im out here for

But i think that they might be busy
Grabbing gifts from neath the tree
And having second helpings...Read More

Rambling
Sleepless nights,
Tales from a rambling man,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
To deaf ears,

Long flights,
With both feet on the ground,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
But no one hears a sound,

Give your all to the world,
With intentions of receiving nothing,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
Am I working towards something?

Let my words...Read More

One Day At A Time
At birth, we all start the very same way
Wet, naked and hungry, looking for someone to love
Our eyes are open, but we cannot see
We cannot talk, much less know what to say
But deep down inside, we know it is coming...Read More
