I jumped
into the car
On that
Summer day

When the
flashing sirens
The other way

The country side
Through my mind
The Sea green
How beautiful
That country line

Even though
There was some light
on the way.
Which way to turn
on this bright
Solstice day?

Do we turn right?
The tree shine
Do we turn left
To try
and find a sign

Old  rocky road
Of earths

There was nothing
I was told
But a wooded
That had
turned old

This will be
Our stop
We see
Not one  cop

I went inside
To wait out
The weather
But then came
a bang
On my wooden

I thought
I had some

The Good & The Bad
H A Vitatoe Jul 10
I held onto
the memories
that made me cry.
That made me enrage
That even
made me
hateful inside.
As I moved on.
To another memory.
I burned any good
that you made with me.
Up in flames.
Is where
the good ones went.
I forgot to hold on
to the ones that .
At one time.
I wish I had not

Hello you
Over there
so gloom

I see you have
left again
within, that room

It's been several
days for now
I  suppose
I'll, see you soon

I seen a glimpse
in today
of happiness
that came, from you

I pray
that of tomorrow
you'll remember
in which, of whom

that you will follow
sounds, of laughter
that lift, your mood

sadness, filled with sorrow
came & brought us
to, your tomb

You say
Do not hold on to
Material Things
That we take nothing

When we die
Did you know our God
For have you not
heard from the heavens
Nor seen the sky
You and me
were nothing more
an idea
That came to life
When our Father
used his hand

Forgive me

I use to wonder
how we came
to be
Sitting there
a willow tree

When I was young
I learned of Jesus
When we die
If we're good
there would be
Endless days
within the sky

Not understanding
who God was
Would he come
as almighty
or be a human
of love

the darkened eyes
the biggest

Now knowing
who I am
Of human
where I stand
As God
shines through us
We are
his blood

Through each
of DNA
Shows us
that we are
the divine
his Holy Grace

Missing Stars
H A Vitatoe Apr 2019
Where have all the stars gone
Have you hid them from me
Are they banished
from home

Have they left
To earth from sky
Is god  singing to them
his lullaby

Have they been tucked  away
to keep them  from harm
Has the moon  blocked them
their charm

Are they among  the horizon
or down at the bay
Are they in the country
just wishing

Will they even
come back
to stay

Where have all  the stars gone
will they come back to me
more brightly
more strong

Tomorrows Yesterday
H A Vitatoe Mar 2019
I often think
of tomorrows yesterday.
Something that may never come.
I think of what it may hold,
when today, is finally done-

is a reminder
A new day
of hope

And yesterday
reminds us
of the seconds
we then cope

But today
The here and now
through the  minutes
Pass each stroke

The Big Bang
H A Vitatoe Mar 2019
They say that we exist,
only because
of the big bang.

A small spark,
that created all.

That little spark,
how massive
it really was.

Before that,
There was nothing,
I suppose,
at all,
but darkness.

if the big bang created life
when we die,
Is that another big bang

The light we see
at the end.
Through a tunnel.
Which we descend.

Creating yet,
another world.
for you and me.

Another place,
that is yet,
to the living,
that is unseen.

On Cave Walls
H A Vitatoe Mar 2019

But my existence, will be, recorded,
through paintings, on

Left Or Right
H A Vitatoe Mar 2019
I am neither
Left nor right.
Which way to turn
in the dar-kest
Do I choose
from the point
of sight?
Can I see
from a hint
of light?
The side to choose
when we all
must fight?
Will it be
left or right?

I was neither
left nor right.
The way I'd turn
in the dar-kest
He'd guide me
with, a hint
of light.
What side to choose
when I must fight.
Will then be
what is right.

Secret Stream
H A Vitatoe May 2018
Floating down an open stream
lifeless as a piece of string

Passing by a river of sticks
suddenly, I feel a *****

Birds singing among the trees
leaves whispering through the breeze

The soothing caress within this place
nature's melody touching my face

I capture, in the corner of my mind
a pool of fish splashing my eye

Then instantly, there floats debris
passing by me like a swarm of bees

Unexpectedly, I feel a sting
of a branch that's poking me

Hoping to be seen by the light
on this clear summer night

I think I'll just lay here at bay
and cleanse all my cares away

As the fairy man passes me by
my guess is that I'm out of time

For no one may never find
this washed up body of mine

On My Way Home
H A Vitatoe Feb 2018
Driving on their way home
Was a man and his child
who was on her phone

The young girl spotted
something on the way
she yelled for him
to stop right away

Her dad turned the radio off
and brought the car to a stop

noticed that it was a child as well
she looked to be about twelve

The young girl got into the car
She said, "I do not live that far"

The girl said,
I hope my mother
will not be mad
The dad said,
I bet she's  actually sad

They drove just a couple of miles
when the girl said,
"that's my house"

He pulled the car in the driveway
and just as he turned away

The girl quickly jumped out
and ran toward her house

There was a light at the door
and then he walked on the porch

He said,
You must be the childs mother
I had picked up your daughter.

she was walking
alone on the road
just a few miles up
from your home

The woman said,
My daughter was gone
for a long time
I have been going out of my mind
She went walking alone one day
I was coming home a little late

By the time I got home
she was already gone

I became so afraid
I began looking for her that day

I called out her name
and looked everyday
but I still could not find Jane

I was told she would not be back
someone had found her backpack
and there was a blood stain track

The track did not lead to her
but they found a piece of her skirt
that I made just for her

Thank you for bringing her home
cause her soul has been
wondering alone

for eight years now  
on that lonely
dark road

Looking Through The Window
H A Vitatoe Feb 2018
She'd walk to the bus stop
and on her way
was an an antique shop

She'd stop there everyday
and looked through the window
at all the different  things

There were statues of angels
and odd things that dangled
with a gold olympic ring

What hung on the wall
appeared to be a painting of fall

Then a man grinned
and waved for her to come on in

She entertained the thought
and didn't continue her walk
She had gone into the shop
where her and the man had talked

He said I've seen you walk by
my shop so many times
but you never stopped
and came inside

and now we have talked
may we go for a walk
maybe to the bus stop

Then the alarm went off
it wasn't from any clock
but a bullet that came across
it hit and he had been shot!

A few days had passed
& their love did not last

she walked down the block
by the old antique shop

She stood for a moment
at  her favorite place
as she looked through the window
the tears fell from her face

As she looked at the man
who might have taken her hand

she remembered that
the day he was shot
it went through his arm
before hitting her heart

H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
When you heard the ocean
let out a scream
while the moon casted
throughout the streams
as the earth shook
& all had to fall
That was my heart
letting out it's call!

The Winter Sheet
H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
Butterflies have left the North
they've gone South for the warmth

No more sweet melodies
from the birds in the trees

On the snow is the winters prey,
and green hills have faded away

Now silence falls
and nothing makes a beat

as crickets lay underneath
a white sheet
Jan 2018 · 402
H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
The clock ticks faster everyday,
seconds that beat rapidly away

As minutes pass,
I glimpse into the past
My mind gets stuck,
in a time capsule cast

Remembering when time
had moved much slower,
but  it speeded up
as I grew  older

Once hoping it wold
hurry up its tock
Now wishing that
it would come to a stop

Forward it moves in eternity
quickly it is reminding me
of the direction that it goes
and I cannot tell it to slow

A speed of illusion
that continues to turn,
a motion that keeps going
and does not return

For when I'm gone
will there still be a ticking clock,
or would it be a memory
that cannot be forgot

Dementia Road
H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
I am an immigrant in my home,
stranger to those to whom I have known

Something is standing in the doorway,
so I scream, Just Go Away

As I stare straight ahead,
it seems as though my mind has fled

People come and then they go,
wondering if their a friend or foe

Suddenly I am alone,
in a place not one can go

As I lay here in my head,
Amongst the living, I am dead

The Ride
H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
Pouring down, on top of me,
specks of dirt in harmony

Crawling through these eyes,
are the black winged flies

Slithering out of my nose,
are of worms that do not glow

What taste comes from my mouth, it's rot that pours on out

Sounds that call my way,
are crying skies of grey

For I took a ride,
that had changed my life

Beaten & strangled,
I was left mangled

Thrown in a shallow hole,
is where now lies my soul
Jan 2018 · 189
H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
Waking up, I heard a sound
of someone walking around

For years I have lived alone
in this house thats made of stone

As I got out of my bed
something flew by my head

I quickly run down the stairs,
then something pulled at my hair

Now I begin to let out a scream,
Realizing , it was all but a dream

It's Just Hair
H A Vitatoe Jan 2018
She sat there on the stairs
Fiddling around with her hair

Blonde, curly, every strand
Felt the warmth of her hand

She would sit there in a daze

Twirling her hair throughout the day,  never went outside to play

She did not care to dance nor prance

The swirly princess on the step
Holding her breath with each prep
I wrote this a couple years ago and entered it in a contest. This was inspired by my youngest who at the age of three was diangnosed with Leukemia. She lost her hair twice and she wore a wig briefly. The first time she lost her hair she didn't really care, she agreed it's just hair and it will grow back, but the second time devastated her. Her hair has grown back since then. She has been cancer free for four years.
