Today someone changed my life-
they cared about me more than self,
they seen me broken and alone
and asked if I needed help,
before I didn't want to try
I felt I couldn't cope,
at every turn I tried and failed
which made me give up hope,

I See You

Everytime you responded first
your safety was jeopardized,
you didn't think about yourself
only saving others lives,
For everytime you made a choice
to do what you had to do,
run into a building or give CPR-
I want you to know, I see you,

Dear Mr. Hurricane
please stay out to sea,
keep all the wind & all the rain
far away from me,
the home they had is there no-more
the foundation is all that's left,
it's hard to keep my spirits high
with misery, loss, and death,
Mother nature...

My Angel

As day turns to darkest night
My love will never die,
Please look down from heaven above
And touch these tears I cry,
I'm Blessed that I could love you
No matter-Come what may,
That you could love someone like me
Even on my darkest day,

#Never Broken

Pray for this broken family
to heal and find forgiveness,
the whole world feels your pain-
we ask God to be our witness,
they've taken a man's life
and haven't showed remorse,
they will never break our spirit
with unnecessary use of force,

Just found out that this poem will be painted on a wall at The way back treatment program. I'm really excited to know that my work will be there to inspire others as I, myself, was inspired.
