Chasing The Wind


I rode the gale of ocean

Chasing dreams and passion.


I flew high among the stars

Trying to be what they are.


I looked at the sun's glory

Trying to create a similar story.


Alas! where ocean and sky blend

It goes on without end

And the sun only rises to descend.


A Little More


A little more

than we've matched

blood for blood

bullet for bullet

fire for fire...


if only we strive to match

kindness for kindness

trust for trust

love for love....


here on earth

heaven will be.


Barrel Of A Pen


life's pilgrims

thirsty of knowledge

look in the brook of a book

where wisdom flows

from the barrel of a pen.
