    The Fallout

    As if survival could
    Somehow cure,
    Assuage for damages
    Left on display -
    Waiting on the wind
    To still... yet, still,
    The weapons sway.
    Anguish, the fallout
    From such brutality
    That life inflicts upon
    Its own humanity.
    No, no bravery could
    Ever cure or bind the
    Wounds of such a gale -
    Cry, cry for the children's
    Quiet wails.
    Who will stop the rain
    That soaks in
    Unrelenting pain,
    These tender hearts
    That forever beat in
    Broken, bleeding, tragic,
    Pleading...
    Memories.

    When will tomorrow
    Take care of tomorrow,
    When will the sorrow
    Take care of its sorrow?

    When will we listen,
    When will we hear?
    When will we speak up,
    When will we shout it?

    Justice and mercy
    Can go hand in hand.

    When will tomorrow
    Take care of tomorrow,
    When will the sorrow
    Take care of its sorrow?

    Where do we go from here?

    November ~ the beginning of the end.
    Year's chapter illustrating perfectly in
    Varied colors ~ some dull, some vivid,
    The highs and lows of a life in harmony.

    I thought he would live forever.
    Just like us all.
    In my semi- delusional mind.
    Semi, for the sake of eternity.
    Don't care for eternity today.
    Miss him ~ like a monkey, orphaned
    In the jungle of a world
    Gone mad. Miss you, Dad.

    I thought you would live forever...

    Yeah, forever's just too far away.

    Perhaps, one day,
    You'll see for yourself
    Just how amazing
    You truly are.

    walk
    today
    hoping that
    one day you will
    run

    run
    today
    knowing that
    one day you will
    fly

    soar
    on dreams
    that grow with
    the passing of
    time

    Keep Holding On

    Even if there seems no purpose
    Even when your hope is gone
    Even though you want to give up
    Even then keep holding on

    Autonomy


    Today I breathe
    Air
    Of
    My
    Own
    Air
    Of
    Freedom
    The
    Air
    I breathe today

    Here I am, somewhere
    Between winter and spring.
    Unsure of the thaw
    And what that would mean.
    That waning hope can be revived,
    That what's been dead
    Can come alive?
    Why fear tomorrow, when
    yesterday's not been too kind?
    And so, I try to shed the past
    And find my spirit blossoming
    Among the living ones.
    Believing, perhaps,
    In the wonder of love again.

    Home

    And, somewhere today,
    An old man remembers,
    A young man prays,
    The lonely are hurting,
    While orphans dare wish
    For a place where
    Dreams come to life
    And families are made.

    For, every heart knows and
    Every heart yearns for
    Home.
