death, fire, home, irony, light,
Fire destroyed my home
Flames engulfed my possessions
Fire seared a hole in my heart
Wildfires ravage a forest
Trees, wildlife, vegetation
Scorched earth's ruination...
For thousands of years
Fire's been a dear
Friend, a welcome
She's warmed our homes
Cooked our meals
Lit our dwellings
And the whole Commonweal's
Fire can be such a positive force
Pains taken to keep it on course
Unleashed, nothing much is worse
death, future, home, loss, war,
W eeping fills the hangar as his casket is brought out,
E mbraced by Old Glory's colors, a fitting soldier's shroud.
L oved one's hearts are shattered, future hopes, dreams are crushed;
C omrades in arms salute him, adding a bittersweet touch.
O verwhelming grief consumes those left behind,
M eaningless words, platitudes spoken to be kind.
E arnest tales of bravery told of him who died.
H eavy with emotion, a nation shares regrets,
O ffering condolences to those who won't forget.
M any a brave soldier has been welcomed home this way.
E nding future ventures, they've come home to stay.

abuse, addiction, angst, death of a friend, pain, silence, teen,
Wrestling the wreckage, I'm fading into darkness unknown.
My head is going straight to voicemail, missing calls from home.
These veins are erratically static, strung out on a backseat,
but the memory of music shall comfort me.
I am so scared, but trapped in such melody.
A bitter-sweet, temporary goodbye;
there isn't a stranger in sight to notice that I'm not alright.
In this night, take me back to simpler times,
when these wheels never spun out on the ice.
Pain has made me so slippery,
giving in to triggering trickery.
Please pray for me.
I am in need of jaws,
to bite off these flaws!
I am almost gone beyond repair.
God, I am so scared!

analogy, appreciation, bereavement, celebration, encouraging, endurance, inspirational,
Don’t mourn for me,
In turn be brief this cold dead dark body not really me;
I may never, ever see you again;
Once upon a time ago you were my dearest friend;
And now the torched has past;
My Lord and Savior grasp…
He’s called me home…
He’s calling me home;
Home is the place again;
Where He originally created me, out of clay man;
Home back to heaven;
Earth will be my memory;

Is the most honourable of all good intentions
To help those poor souls in need
We all have so much for which to be thankful
Our mission is to do a good deed
The task of seeking the underprivileged
Those truly in need of assistance
Doing our very best to make sure they enjoy
A happier and productive existence
Very first news of someone in distress
Be there to offer your hand
Making sure things are contented at home
Then offer to help your fellow man
Is definitely where charity should begin
On that we must be consistent
Then share the warmth of our loving heart
And our happy and peaceful existence

Globally, miners jubilantly jump for joy
Smiles on the faces of every girl and boy
The grins of a newly opened Xmas toy
Trade unionists bounce along the street
Music blaring and the tapping of feet
From nurses to Bobbies still on the beat
Street parties announced in the nation
Satan who brought economic inflation
Is deceased, now’s the time for elation
Its times like this I’m sad I’m an atheist
And can only shout and wave my fist
And then go to the pub and get pissed

Oh how I wish
I could set free
the native American Indian
with pride and dignity
taking them back
across the great open plains
to their sacred home
in the lush green vallies
where buffalo are plentiful
so the Indians can live in peace
one with nature once more
where the eagles soar
setting them free as the wind
wild untameable as a magnificent stallion
running toward the setting sun.

N othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace
Always in black, Fr. McShane
raises cathedral hands and intones,
‘our brother is finally home.’
Absolved of the fight to contain
a lifetime of tears
in this ceremonial splendor
I just have to wonder.

Alone he stands looking up to the "Great Star Wolf"
the highest ranking of the great chain
ready to make his claim
Sending him short prayers no longer howling to the moon
but to the "Great Star Wolf" to lead his soul
so he might take his rightful role
Into the Cave of Souls he'll go for legend is foretold
becoming part of the "Great Star Wolves" constellation
a tiny star you will see because now he is free.

I did it again; I need forgiven.
Will He still forgive me even though I've fallen before?
I've fallen into these same sins countless times before;
I still haven't learned my lesson.
I am an ignorant hypocrite.
Am I still forgiven?
funeral, funny, perspective,
A brand new funeral home just opened,
Well that’s what my neighbour said,
He told me “We now have a brand new place,
Where we can take our dead.”
It’s in the building that used to be,
A pub for a hundred years,
It was the Old Royal Hotel down town,
Where we’d all raise our cheers,
But now its function’s completely changed,
Same clients, just a different need,
No longer does it enslave the souls,
Instead, it sets those souls to free,
The old pub is now a funeral home,
With closing time now at seven,
Final drinks are now spirits on the house,
Where closing time sends them to heaven.

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies
I want to here with me through the night
My heart yearns into your soul
Burning as if newly lit coal
I bravely submerg the embers
That the time I have can be spent with you
And I remember each kiss every moment
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember
So what happened was a chance for your love
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss
I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss
I lay silient in an umber
The Old Home
in the process of becoming.
business, death, funeral, funny, home, life, work,
the crowds taking the subways
enter the underground
below upon waking
to rise up
in the clouds above
only to go back in the evening
down through the underground
low upon leaving
to final rest
in the underground
or in the clouds above
death, home, life,
As I picked up the glass
I felt its weight
I felt its coolness
Its perfect smoothness
So where does gravity find a grip?
As I sipped the wine
I tasted aromas deep
I tasted the sun on rounded grapes
Grown in distant, romantic landscapes
So how did the taste get to travel?
As I saw the light reflected red
I saw the rings of colour
I saw the glow, I saw the faded pallor
In the edges of the light
So why did the light leave no mark?
And as I turned to weightlessness
And became a deathly stench
I turned into eternal light
My hand being firmly clenched
So why are You taking me home?

(A Purpose So Clear)
Like children we fear
In secret a somber tear
Like learning to walk
Babies listen to talk
And reach for a hand
To help them stand
This too, we all must do
By HIS Hand made anew
abuse, caregiving, dad, death, family, mother daughter, parents,
They’ve traveled from one house to another.
Some may say they’re strong enough to go on
Without a woman to call their mother.
Attachment is pointless, soon to be gone.
Another house that will never be home.
Little children crying themselves to sleep,
wondering where they will be next to roam.
All they can do is to hope and to weep.
Will they love me enough now, I wonder.
Shall I go away or shall I stay here?
At night, I can still hear the loud thunder
of his footsteps drawing so very near.
Though I may never find my one true home,
For love, I’ve found- I’m no longer alone.
death, freedom, god, heart, military, patriotic, war,
Grit beneath my feet of strength
Death within a win
To be awarded a metal
In the eyes of sin
My heart is now purple
Ever bleeding red
Nonsense of Pride
Developed in a wars crime
A man whom is not on the field
Never placing his hand on the trigger
Dapples on the grid
Smiling for your lose is his win
Tempered in a flag
Rising up a post
Numbers in which Climb
Grief in a family's cry
Grit is a better word for Character
Rendering Star Spangled Banner
In God we Trust
The Home of the brave!

A serpent underneath blue sky,
in shade of man, in twinkle of an eye,
above brick wall, in the structure, at the floor,
venom of white dove; contaminated food, undrinkable water,
misguided youth, pregnant daughter, unfaithful father and hateful son,
mothers do pray while we walk through Babylon;
on teli and in the press, on top shells,
price none the less, in bedroom and at your door..
dawn of a new day seemed to be dark,
to the ground
like black snow,
and smoke curls
the rubble like
emerging from the
A skeleton now looms
in the clearing,
surrounded by heaps
of its charred flesh.

death, environment, holocaust, home, horror, war, world,
being in this tin womb, dark and safe,
that's the thing; inside the dark corners
and air-lock doors, it's a floating life
toothpaste and pureed stew float by;
still, here's not to dwell on the minutiae
and other small things
and the silent solar-wind powers on,
while below, the earth, the sea, the clouds,
the blue and green, the tempered purple hues,
and if from the land you peer up here,
from where the earth is dying, you'll see
me sigh, through flocks of hope,
and notice that I'm crying
death, sad, soldier,
A soldier has just gone home.
This evil world no more to roam.
It wasn't for want of prayers,
But all is known to our heavenly father>
A soldier has just finished her fight.
On the eagles' wings she has taken her flight.
No more pain or worry of any kind,
Her eternal rest she has gone to find.
A saint has just found her rest,
Her memory is forever blest.
Although all the loved ones are grieving,
but God, His precious daughter receiving.
