Solar eclipse in the sky
Made day dark as night
But if you’re too dumb
And you look at the sun
The sun will burn out your eyes

Historic Eclipse
Daytime Sky turned dark like night
Moon and sun align

TBT: Too Much

Leave a comment

I know, it’s not Thursday. But high school throw back nonetheless

You say “I love you” still mist I request,
If yours is truly love substantially laid.
Methinks your love so shallow you have made,
If I had dove into your love at last,
My skull would I have cracked in half; so see,
To me is love a special thing, untouched.
I once had loved and found what love could be.
I long to love, have love returned as such.
And I would die to have such love from thee,
So stop, a little more could be, too much.

Never Let Go

Today my heart broke
As I laid down and spoke
Soft words to my darling son
As his life of burden begun

Gripped with fear that cannot
Be defeated or even fought
Though I would battle anything
Can we defeat anxiety?

Your tears ripped my heart away
Give me the words I need to say
To soothe your pain and anguish
I’m desperate this ache to vanquish

If I had the weapon
I would end the confusion
If only my love and embrace
Your anxiety could erase

I’m becoming desperate my son
To guard you from this season
It pains me as your father
That your world is becoming darker

I would take your fear and pain
But my hopes are all in vain
I promise I’ll fight with you though
I will never give up, never let go

Landon’s Birthday Poem 2017

Leave a comment

My dearest Landon
Such a sweet son
Simply loves everyone
Your life has just begun

Blessed with so many gifts
Overflowing with benefits
Unparalleled wits
The world has no limits

Melting hearts with your smile
For you I’d walk miles
As the sun points on the dial
I’m your loving dad all the while

I’ll carry your burdens with you
Even after you grew
From the nest you flew
I’ll see you through

I’m your strength when you need
Be there to sing you to sleep
Help you from bonds be freed
For you all my blood I’ll bleed

Black White
Left Right
Fight Fight Fight

Race color
Children’s future
Angry, hostile, furor

Blinding hate
For evil’s sake
A horrible fate

Twisted mind
Against mankind
All of them blind

Tap, Tap, Tap

Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Have no more time to spend

With expanding your mind
Or hunting treasures to find
Improving your body
Or strengthening your family

Nothing but Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Only left with your best friend

Eyes fixed downward
Bow to your lord
Bent over like peasants
You lowly subjects

And just Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Only this till the end

Slaves to the device in your hand
I beg your to break away if you can
Rejoin a world of relationships
Love people and forge friendships

No more Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
You can heal, you can mend

Be better than a tapping drone
Feeling so connected but really, alone
Stop allowing the drain of your soul
Let go and make living your goal
