Spring

Dr. T. Pinnock 1962 (Hartford, Ct)



The beginning of Spring
Spring, when the leaves grow,
the air is flying with kites.
Kids playing with their fights.
The wind sways gentle.
Breathe the air, feel the wind,
preying it will never end.
Dream and think
Dream about god, his
almighty world.
Dream about yourself, and other living.
Hope of love.
Dream about being, untrust worthy to god.
Do you like it?
If you are a person think.
Dream about tomorrow,
dream about yesterday,
dream about today.
Do you want to die?
You should.

Dr. T. Pinnock

Dr. Pinnock first wrote poetry in the institution he resided in inside a classroom at 8 years old. The typewriter was old and manual with a keyguard. A keyguard is a device with an opening for each key to prevent a person lacking fine motor skills from accidentally hitting a key. Dr. Pinnock was granted permission to use the class alone. He labored there typing for hours ignoring his cerebral palsy. Dr. Pinnock grew up with his family until August of 1970. Poverty forced his parents to make him a ward of the State of Connecticut. more…
