As time moves on, young to old
I see the hands of so many children
Taken into the hands of mothers and fathers,
and though I miss those days
I wonder if I'll ever hold a small hand
like my mother and father
the perfect young hand
searching for protection from this world.
And I wonder how this small hand
will come to exist.
A love? A loss?
And as the child in my mind screams
"Where's daddy?"
Will I say "at the office"
"at the bar" "at home"
will I say "backstage" "in heaven"
"in New Mexico, Kentucky or California"
or will I way
"I don't know"...
but what I hope to say is
"Daddy is right there, honey.
Take my hand and let's go see him!"
and a small, perfect hand slips safely into mine.

My own mind

So hard to write
wit a conscious mind
there's a flower waiting for me
there's a room where I can sleep
but the room is in a new land
and never-never go
I'll never-never go
there's a flower waiting for me
and a mouth to feed
amouth with a silver spoon
on a silver platter
I'll be seeing her soon
and I can't see
there's a flower waiting for me,
and a face to slap
I'm too scared to slap it back
take a blow
let it go
how do i know if it's real?
there's a flower waiting for me
and my own mind, unleashed,
is that flower in full bloom
take off your hat
I'll be seeing her soon.


Hands in the mud
feet on stone
working hard to be our own
a slave, now and forever
raped in the fields,
death by leather
straps on the back
a child to them all
a fool in their eyes, on call
tethered to the post
soul ripped, torn, broken,
battered, bruised, words unspoken
placed carefully back in its home.
A heart on fire
no water, heart expires
no daughters or sons of our own.

These are a few I wrote in high school. Let me know what you think!
