The Possible Future

September 30, 2012

The Road Now

The dream of a possible past changing what I think we have

The little moments when you see a past future

A glimpse of happiness we have yet to know

Thoughts of non-existent disappointment

Thoughts of pain not yet felt

Pretty face and contagious smile

Displace the creeping darkness

Return the reality of the minutes

Minutes which create a possible future

Hard Working Americans

March 18, 2011

I haven’t talked much or written about my son going to or returning from the war.
I hope to do so from the depth of soul real soon.
This is a video of his unit in action.
God Bless America.

My Darkness

January 27, 2011

The Road Now

My light is dimmed by the word NO

I hear it but nobody is saying it

It seldom leaves my thoughts or my soul

The rain in my head has become a mental symphony

It shows up on the sunniest days.

Scrambled thoughts of yesterday

Screaming for a vison of tomorrow

The things I want to say 

Leave NO key to the door I just closed

This is my darkness

Faux My Friends

October 30, 2010

 

The Road Now

I stood today next to a forever friend

Realized that sometimes they come into our lives

Not to stay but to teach us how to live

Rain fell upon me today and deep within me I accepted loss

I have known many and been much to some

In the end what matters is who stands with you

Remembers what we were and allows

The journey to continue

The Road Now

When A Weary Soul Screams From Within Ones Heart

When Ones Heart Is Led By Circumstance

When Ones Feet  Are Pointed Backward

It’s Time To Listen

It’s Time To Be True

To Thine Own Self

Give Me A Reason

The Road Now

He Can’t Possibly Know What He Is Talking About

Yet He Keeps Producing A Great Product

Gotta Keep Throwing Things At Him

Eventually Fault Will Appear

Even If Imagined

Just Give Me A Reason

To Keep Him Down

The Road Now

Burning The Midnight Oil 

Stressing While Reaching For Perfection 

Body Says Slow Down 

Illness Creeps In 

You Burn More Oil 

Nobody Cares 

Because Money Is Gone 

Set A Trap That Can Only Catch 

What Your Mind Already Believes 

The Smoke Has You 

Believing You Are Always Right 

If I Could Look Behind You 

I Would Probably Find 

Many More Just Like Me

The Road Now

Dad keep your head up, the people who matter are the ones who will read the book. The rest aren’t worth your time. You have not made any bad decisions, bad things come up so that we can overcome them and grow stronger. Your life is much different than it used to be, just take a look at what you have been doing since i left! It looks like your enjoying a part of life that you never really had a taste of before… the part of life i have always followed my heart toward just to enjoy life and live your dreams and have good friends. I have made bad decisions but i am very happy where my life has taken me and you should be proud to be where you are, with people who love you and son who couldnt be more proud of who his dad is now. Money and the things we have or didnt have in our lives never took away from the great memories we had and all the ones you and i have before us that we havent even made yet. Let go of what people view as important and embrace life as it comes and take ever opportunity to do what sounds like a good fun idea! I have always said and my actions have shown this hence me being a Marine, but money doesnt matter, the friends you keep and the positive impact you make on someones life is worth so much more then gold and paper. I love you and I miss you and I am very proud of who you are now and who you always have been. A great father, a amazing friend and someone who has given his loving son more then he could have ever asked for in his life. Thank you

Son of  Road

The Road Now

You choose to judge me on my looks

You see me  as if closed

Yet I have opened up

About my current situation

I being stripped of all material things

You don’t even care to turn the pages

The pages that reveal that which I really am

I stand before you

A victim of bad decisions

You see nothing worth time

My situation could happen to anyone

It is happening to many

It could  happen to you

Judge me by my cover

You will not see

The pick I hold

Yet I hold it with

Experience

I hold it with pride

You can not to see the gold

The gold which the pick will uncover

Turn the pages

Set us both free

With a chance of

The dignity of a paycheck
