A Little Boy

when I was a little boy

I had no idea

the man

I would become;

inside all of this


remains that little boy


sometimes to not recall

the day

innocence gave its

departure notice

to his only

grasp upon

sweet reality


when I was a little boy

I understood



Peace Today

For desire when waking, arise the sun

We watch the world begin a tomorrow

Can we imagine our lives now begun

Similar vigor, delightful ego.


Wonder the soul cross our paths today

Love seems to permeate all things good

Offset the evil, the shallow display

With kindness, might until energy would


In the dawn of our brief lives, can we please

Recognize elegance, desire in truth

A simple smile, surreal a gift’s ease

Plays fortune to level the notions uncouth.


Our fragile reality, need release

in life we can if we choose speak peace.
