One day soon
The choice will come
That this life of mine
Will soon be gone
Doc's tell me
Get things in novice
But we know not
The day, nor hour
Or, of which order
No longer can I keep
The fight going on
With Sarcoidosis
Abusing my lungs
Now my heart
Slowly beats
The body is tired
To take more
Match's to defeat
But my mind
Is not weak
It's clear as day
Hope you get
What I'm trying to say
Not saying I'm giving up
But this spell of Voodoo
Of the disease, that kills
Is taking over
Shorter breathes in between
When I walk or speak
Calling all my Angels
Watching over me
Just let me have
A little more time
With the family
To fight like soldiers
In a desert field
Build me up to bloom
Like a flower
On a Spring mourning hill
What come
What may
Everlasting prayer's
In a whisper
Without fear
I'll take that bow
Just not today
A little bit later
I have this disease called Sarcoidosis, there's not much known of it.
I've had this disease a very long time, since in my 20's, I'm now 47.
Have wanted to write something of this along time now.
I hope one day more attention will be applied to it,
because a lot of people die from this.
There seems to be no answer to why?

Hello to all, sorry I haven't been here in awhile, just want to say still hanging in there even though the challenges have made some things difficult with family member's. Keep your prayer's in your request line for me. Just turned 51, looks like "God" must till need me here to keep my creative vision of poetry fruitful.

Don't let your words cloud your mind
For each word spoken
Lays doubt in line
Troubles with liberties,
With words you use to speak
May be arrogant that play
To match for defeat

With the whole world watching
Trafficing of spoken words
Leads to compound interest
Into the cause for wars, racism,
Political mouth piece
On solid soil
Spreading words around in this world
Could get you on a list
Jeapordizing relations of all man kind

So step back for a moment
Before you speak
Become quiescent
Don't let your words
Cloud your mind

On this day
Not looking for chocolates
Not looking for flowers
Or a card saying how you might feel
Just looking for a night
By making me feel like a lady
To put a smile on my face
With just a little tenderness
Of your kiss
The gentleness of your touch
The way you use to take me in your arms
Hold me as if it was the first time
Don't have to say that you Love me
We both know it would be a lie
Just on this one day of the year
Let's both pretend that we really care
Take off in our own
Fantasy dream to pleasure paradise
On this day
Called Valentine
You go your way
I'll go mine
We'll meet again
Same time next year
On this day

Oh by the way
Thanks, Happy Valentine Day

They say, no man is an island
Yet an island can be reshaped
By a tornado, hurricane, or a earthquake
Mother nature rules with an iron fist
To place her stakes on the land of the living

They say, no man is an island
But there must be a better way
For other nations and countries
Come together and embrace
To restructure our governments,
Working together, rebuilding, maybe, even see
The humanity in eachother giving
To help those, who can not help themselves

They say, no man is an island
All the justice and laws in the world
Wouldn't correct it's poverty
In exchange, for it's wealth
Animated politicians
Speaking in tongues
Atoned to be totally clueless
Unaware of the next existing
Killer of lives

They say, no man is an island
To forsee at last
Battle of waves of storms to come
Genocide, Nuclear, Wars
Will come again, and again
History repeats, in cirlces
It never ends

They say, no man is an island
The inadequate versions of getting things right
Should be a must, for the change with truth and trust
People having the will or the lack of
Food, water, protection, health care
That ain't right
To not be inform and share

They say, no man is an island,
But there's just has to be a better way
People taken care of people
Living life better than it once was yesterday
Families who have lost, buried, and shed many of tears
Placed their memories of loved ones
To cross over into the light
Have lost more than just a home, family, neighbors
One thing one must not lose is
The spirit inside to have

They say, no man is and island
For every man, woman and child
Is of the land of their island
Hope is not ones plan alone
The plan simply is of many...

Faith, Memories, Freedom, Dreams, and Hope

When you walk out your door
In the winter, spring, summer or fall
The sun flickers on many shades of colors
In the flower shops, fruit and vegetable stands
You walk down most city streets
People of many faces you greet
Day after day

Then you pick up the cover of a magazine
Maybe even your favorite, tv show, movie
The vanity in most today
Features not one
Woman,  Man or child of color
We still have a long way to go
Though many think, because
Our President, Barack Obama is black
We can forget the past and close the door
Stop mentioning
Racism today
It doesn't exist no more
Unfortunatly, I wish that was true

Like the rainbow in the sky
It doesn't discriminate
Crossing over brightly for many to see
Your eye's light up when you can capture
Such a beautiful thing
The shades of color comes in many variations
We can't hide them behind a cloud
Or in a corner, to collect dust
The vanity in 2010
To believe no one would notice
That there is only one flavor  
Is a delusion that they're not many choices
You can't go color blind
Unless you where born that way

So what are we afraid of
You can't stop it, or make it go away
Cause all the colors blend
Into a mixture with eachother
Like a painted picture
That just looks
Simply Beautiful
In a variety of colors

To All Mankind To Be Free

The mission at task
For our coalition forces
To march into Baghdad
Saving the lives from the enemies
That killed, and stole the lives of hope
To turn over the future, into their hands
Give back dignity, that lies in their land

The mission at task
For the world to see
We can all live in this world
With respect for eachothers liberties
Granted that all lives be protected
From dictators, who take advantage
Of it's people
Killing the souls of which stands naked

The mission at task
Is for all, human life, to be FREE!

Love me tender

Love me sweet

Hold me in your arms

Make love to me

Feel our body's close

Our minds as one together

Feeling this moment

Of foresure pleasure

Surrounding us is the heat

Of our passion

From one to another

Is our own ****** satisfaction
