Songs on the Wind

Songs on the Wind was another poem collection book I was published in way back in 1995. (I am on page 416. There are 697 pages of just poems.) I was in my late teens, Bill Clinton was just a couple years into his rein as president, and it was just a few years after the Gulf War had ended. I would like to share that poem with you today. I hope you enjoy it. :) War Country to Country State against State Friends against friend Not knowing our fate Bloodshed and tears Smashed dreams New fears Heartache and sorrow No today No tomorrow Brother against sister Father against mother It's all in the way we see each other Loved ones that are lost Fighting, not knowing the cost Do we know what we are f

I Am Me

This is a poem I had published in a poem collection called Touch of Tomorrow many years ago. (2004) I hope you enjoy it. I Am Me Whirlwinds of emotion exceed me In a field full of flowers I am an old oak tree Chills of insecurity to my bones In a field of dreams I stand alone Time passes as a movie On a large theatre screen One wish full of hope One destiny as a dream Stars twinkle like diamonds On a black velvet sky My future is passing In a blink of an eye For in a field full of flowers I am an old oak tree I am strong I am worthy I am me "Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken." -Oscar Wilde #poems #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #twitter #bookseries #poetry #strength #wonderwo
