Children and parents
all caught in sorrow
Angery siblings
forgetting tomorrow
But thru mom's faith
and loving design
All together
as we now find
The true colors of fate
darkening this day
And the lack of love
fake as we pray
But love won out
as we cried in hand
My father and i
together we stand
A sister and me
a warm, kind touch
she shared it with me
changing so much
dropping a wall
remembering our mom
crying all day
and reading from psalm
so it could be right
that mom is now
giving us a chance
to heal somehow
The powers that be
maybe foriegn to me
maybe mom had it rite
with this honesty
thank you mom
for lighting my way
and bringing me here
on your final day
i love you always
inspite of the pain
the hurt we had
was all in vien
What you were
a kind loving wife
A mother to give
for the rest of your life
For these two
the rewards were great
A beautiful life
gifting me this trait
My mother and father
reaching lifes end
entering heaven
to do it all again
I wrote this after attending my mothers funeral on Jan 6, 2017

Open your soul
and share your thoughts
communicate with others
******* in knots

empty and dry
and be so fake
cook it all up
giving heartache

telling me this
we love you so
but we refuse to respond
and say hello

it just happens now
with the phone in your face
i'm to busy with it
for the human race

so as we sit with you
and wish you well
we will ignore your hurt
and put you in hell

because its not at all
about being humane
rather how selfish
as i go insane

the greed it shows
hurts many others
he would sell your soul
even your mothers

i have no more room
for that kind of hate
so if you express it
its really to late

for all of those
who are different than you
compassion and kindness
you never knew

the doctor who now
saves your life
with darken skin
under his knife

how dare you judge
and not understand
what he has been thru
and how he was banned

jesus shared love
all thru his life
perhaps you will see
in your afterlife

just how very much
hurt you gave
to others so different
you tried to enslave

they give you a warning
now be so afraid
of offering help
or foreign aide

but dont fear it here
right in your face
shooting that man
because of his race

my message for all
be humane
it might be you one day
experiencing pain

If you climb to the top
 Mt. Lassen at nite
You can see right straight
 To heaven so bright
I can see forever,
 without a sound
A piece of heaven,
 a treasure found
Alone on this mountain
 God's work of art
He reached out to me,
 touching my heart
So i ask God, please
  How can this be
So close to heaven
 Can I really see
In this mountain
  the Secrets in me
One of his gifts
  A mystery
I close my eyes
  Feel the touch
God’s little finger
  Loving me so much
A tear starts to fall
  Upon my face
Touching my eyes
  looking into space
I ask again
 Why am I
So much emotion
 whenever I cry
My eyes now open
  I see it fast
A star that glows
  shoots by so fast
Viewing the stars
 Now fading away
As this mountain of love
 Begins a new day
My greatest gift
 this new sunrise
Over this mountain
  & In your eyes
I was lonely and cold
 continued to write
As the sun comes up
 So sweet and bright
The night soon ends
 I now safely find
This mountain of love
 Is all on my mind
Its time to leave
 Home to bed
Don’t ever forget
 To me God said
Treasure these secrets
 You learned up here
And this mountain of love
 Will always be near

Ever changing
  the world that we know
Always evolving
  as we tune in the show
The kaleidoscope of life
  right in your eyes
Tuning out those
  who only tell lies
This circle of life
  we now go thru
Stepping on stones
  & other things we do
The turning scope
  first offers you red
Bringing to life
  the things in your head
The turning scope
  orange as you see
Fear is the lock
  your heart is the key
The turning scope
  now turns to blue
& some more wonderful things
  come out of you
The turning scope
  now yellow so bright
Filling your heart
  as day turns to night
The turning scope
  suddenly turns black
Exposing your fears
   all that you lack
Empty inside
  it just isn’t fair
A turning scope
  colors everywhere
With each offering yet
  a different view
Of what’s always been
  inside of you

I stumble thru insanity
  Trying to be sane
So lost in this jungle
  with nothing to gain
In this very cruel world
  They keep taking from me
All of my thoughts
  And honesty
They don’t ever ask
  If doing is right
As they get away with hurt
   we can’t even fight
They steal our freedom
  Take it away
With each new law
  They pass today
For letting money
  And all that greed
The absolute power
  A corrupted seed
Dropping these seeds
  Watching them grow
Into a forest
  with nothing to show
This is our state
  the land of the free
Its just a simple cover
  so we don’t really see
This powerful machine
  now out of control
Wearing us down
  taking its toll
Living this way
  without a choice to make
But I walk on the stones
  my life to take
As I wait for a time
  A warm sunny day
Where I am free as a bird
   in just this way
Sitting on a beach
  in the warm white sand
I am finally free
  in this far away land
Tommy Allen Jan 2017
I cried so hard  
When my children arrived
Made me so glad  
to be alive
Precious little feet
soon running around
loving them so much
  without a sound
look into their eyes
   what did I see
so simple and fun
  just let them be
A child does wrong
   teach them new
holding them close
   loving them too
going to school
   with innocence and fear
making new friends  
year after year
suddenly they change
   lifes little trick
caught up in worry
   making us sick
some try drugs
  drinking their way
to wrecking the car
  what can you say
but blessed with good luck
   after they fall
watch them get up
  and stand real tall
making me so proud
  to be their dad
as I remember all the fun
  we’ve always had
so blessings such as this
  hold nice and tight
cherish forever
   with all of your might
soon their day will come
  and without any fear
they see it too
  oh so clear
the birth of their child
  Gods own creation
Miracle of life
  Filled with sensation
Coming full circle
  Yet once again
Watching them go
  and remembering when
I love both of you
With all my heart
As I have done always
  Right from the start

Dreaming of this,
Dreaming of that
Does the world even care
where you’re at
Lost somewhere
a dreamer may find
The best part of life,
is in their mind
Dreaming of love
in a faraway land
He dreams of peace,
whenever he can
Snow in the mountains,
makes a nice dream
Watching it fall
or so it would seem
Dreaming of sports,
says the athlete
Just give me a chance,
let me compete
Some dream of money,
fortune and fame
Others dream of God,
that eternal flame
What about the girl
without eyesight
Dreaming of colors,
the world so bright
Then there are those
who dream of greed
They just don’t realize
what they need
A man knows,
he soon must die
Dreaming of better things,
he now wonders why
As God now takes him
to a better place
Entering those gates,
a smile on his face
A man who can’t walk,
does anyone care
Dreaming of life
without that chair
Now I just dream
making you smile
As I write my poems,
all the while
Your dreams can come true,
as you may find
That the best part of life
is in your mind
