Collision Course by Lawerence E. Mize

On a collision course,
Don't know why.
Thoughts of Nam
Make me cry.

Cast adrift
In a sea of the past.
PTSD has claimed me.
Lord, long at last.

Don't know where I'm going.
Only where I've been.
Memories of Nam
Keep reeling me in.

Time With Mom

I watched the two of them
Sitting on the couch.
Working a Jig-Saw puzzle,
Searching for the parts to a house.

Their gazes intent,
Glancing back and forth.
Mother and Daughter,
Searching for pieces
To contribute their worth.

Engrossed...

AMERICA STOP!

America...Stop!
You're coming apart at the seams.
Your people are dying.
Can't you hear their screams?

You help others abroad
In their desperate hours,
While ignoring your people,
Who hide and cower.

They hide from the bullets
Flying...

Poor Ukraine

Saw the bodies
Just lumps on the ground
Destroyed buildings
Debris all around

The war is with us
As we watch safe in our homes
With no dying children
Mothers left alone

The images are graphic
The scenes surreal
As Ukrainians flee
And...

Agent Orange

Living on borrowed time.
Always wondering,
How many days left...
Are mine.

I'm a dead man walking.
A living corpse as cold as the grave.
Got blood thinners and nitro tabs
To make my heart behave.

It's no big thing.
Just my dumb luck.

Baltimore At War

Bullets flying
Criminals at their doors.
People screaming,
Please...no more.

Baltimore is at war,
From within and without.
Off in the distance
You can hear the shouts.

Shouts of the people.
Dying alone in the dark.
Heads turning
As...

Hero's

Hero's can come
In dirty blue jeans.
Coats and ties,
Any old thing.

It takes an event
When we're in need.
A simple touch.
To help us grieve.

A hug on a day
When things are low.
A knowing look.
When the tears start to flow.

A hero's...

When Mom Comes To Die

When Mom Comes To Die
You spend your life
Being nourished and loved.
From those special people;
The ones, that God sent from above.
They work and they toil
To give you their best.
They take pleasure and joy
Sharing in your happiness.
A kiss...

A Friend

A FRIEND
Since 2015...
Thugs have been in charge.
Rioting, robbing and killing
While they roam free and at large.

They Strike with precision.
Their crimes over in a flash.
Victims lose everything.
Their lives, cars, and cash.

Elected...

Down In The Ground

Down In The Ground

Don't want to go
Down in the ground.
To know the void
of the absence of sound.

Don't want to fight
The rot that takes me away.
Or feel the worms
crawling over me every day.

The dampness is forever
Down in the dirt....

Fortunes

I used to dream of fortunes
And having material things.
Now, I dream of smiles
Only little children bring.

Children bring you Riches
In what they do and say.
Lighten up your heart,
On long cold dreary days.

They never ask for much.
To...
