“ A Tear ” ~ too many ~


I’ve caused a tear

Or two, too many,

Thru all the years

Or most of every,

Admittedly clear

Be short of reason,

Thus sorry pleas

Not worth a penny

Nor a dime,

Save every time

There be sadness

Sure to follow,

Mostly mine!



“ A Voice Unheard ” ~ be living dead ~


A voice unheard

Means spur oppression

To drown its pleas,

Thus unquestioned

Holds reaching out

To hence be saved

From living dead

Suffer suppression,

The while obscured

One yet but hears

Appeals that beg,

The ever lifeless


Who’ll ne’er permit

A voice free to be heard!
