rally round, 12th grade, age, anger, angst, anxiety, betrayal,
Children are seized at the border
their parents led away in cuffs.

ICE morphed into a gang of toughs.

Forgiveness is easy
So i choose not to
I forsake myself
so why should i treat you any differently

Standing here my finger raised towards the sky
Forgive and forget
A joke forced down our throats
Rally round and crucify me
From your...Read More

of wars and battles of ten, twenty, sixty years ago,
when lives were given freely in belief and hope
for the dreams of freedom and democracy we spoke.

The fault line
rally round, poems,
Form: Free verse
People running for their lives,
The earth roars and splits,
Car’s turn over,
The earth is angry,
Terror and death,
Devastation as disaster attack,
Before the stillness comes,

Here it comes again,
Rumbling and shaking,
As people scream,
Then the calm,
Still waiting for my tomorrow
rally round, hope,
Form: I do not know?

When the sunrise,
My undying spirit of determination rise,
Curiosity knock on the doors of my chest,
Demanding for tomorrow's answers,
A puzzle that needs to be solved,
Shadows of the...Read More
rally round, emotions,
You don't miss a slice off a cut loaf
At least that's what most cheaters would say.
But they're not talking about their wives
Because in their minds they have surmised
That their wives would never view life this way
So if this is...Read More

COPLA CINCUENTA Y CINCO: This Bad Guy World
Centre-half’s the heart of defence
Danger comes from the Right and Left:
When heart’s corrupt fickle sans sense
Enemy dribbles through with zest:
Goal posts drumsticks
The second line’s the general
Prince and people rally round him:
rally round, death,
An acquaintance of mine
(More the friend of a friend)
Was just told that her life
May be nearing its end.
She is ready for hospice,
Her doctor suggested;
She cannot go home,
Which is what she requested.
Her husband bailed out
When she first became sick,
Taking up with...Read More

Dust rises from the rutted road. Cannon laden caissons rumble slowly forward. A red sun competing with the campfires glow. Weary troops break camp, joining the ranks of

Slowly the...Read More

rally round, devotionworld,
God didn't send a warrior bold
With drawn sword and shield
To face the evil of this world
And make old Satan yield.

Wrapped in His Father's love
To captivate the world of men
With message from above.

rally round, natural disasters, nature, people, uplifting, world,
The monster rose out of the sea,
Intent on devastation.
The wreckage it left in its wake--
The world looks dark and dismal, now.
Heartbreak, on every hand.
A world of rubble and debris,
Where once was sun and sand.
But this night is not forever;
