Memoirs of dead men; I wonder of future generations, Like those I have met. As to my own destiny, Why let the question phase me? This labor of love, that Life, I wish to live selfless- And be great, anonymous. Shadow the dark, and shine light Radiate through the night That, of your conscience. Wakeup, & look around; This is war, not merely fight- For all that is just and right, Stand-up, don't just die. The fuse is sparked, the fire ignite: Spread your wing and take flight.
Before the flight takes off Before our ascent into the skies Before I'm unplugged from the grid Before I'm temporarily disconnected
I think about what I'll miss, If the flight never landed. I think about the goals unfulfilled People unmet, sights unseen Words unsaid, tears uncried Emotions unshared, pain unfelt Fights unhad, hands unheld Stories untold, lives unlived
But most of all, I think of you. And feel Hope.
Written on a return flight trip. A few moments of introspection.
New Planes They say peace will reign but in America/they build many new warplanes/the new B-21 Raider bomber/what a nightmare dream for enemies/plus the superb V-280 Valor tilt rotor/moving troops twice as fast/what will be revealed next?/state of the art lethal aircraft/utterly the best beyond compare/Red China and Putin's Russia has cool birds/but nothing to compare to America/peace does not and never will sell/prepare for war with new planes

Guess who's back! ^-^ on my 995th poem too, ***! I hope everyone's alright in their part of the world. It's long overdue that I reconnect with my past love. Daily life is droll but I'm slowly finding my colours again. I still don't feel worthy of my pen at times but this is a blessing. Hard to believe that we will be in February tomorrow. May 2023 be a fantastic year for you all! I'll definitely be posting more this year. To reconnect to my inner child and creativity. It's long overdue that I try to spread my wings instead of dealing with the constant fall. Much love to you beautiful souls out there P.S - Melissa, this one's for you! ❤️ Take care all! Lyn ***
