I am…

I am...12-7-2017


I am…

I am a pilot
Flying planes
In the wild blue yonder

I am an explorer
Deep in the Amazon jungle
Searching for lost civilizations

I am a writer/poet
Struggling to hone
My craft

I am a husband
Loving and caressing
My beautiful wife

I am the breadwinner
Working everyday
To survive this world

I am all of these things
And more
Much more

I am whomever and whatever
My mind wants me
To be

I am he
And this is me
Here for the world to see

Flickers of Flame

unknown soldier underthe arc de triomphe


Flickers of Flame

We are the brave lost souls
Our lives taken violently
By mortar shell and grenade
Too soon we had
To leave this world

To you we pass the torch
The last flicker of flame
Representing eternal hope
For peace and tranquility
In this lovely world

Keep the flame
Alive and burning
And hope will not
Be lost
