A construction worker for over 40 years, i've also been involved in writing a screen play for a TV pilot that starred James Drury, Gary Clarke, Roberta Shore and Buck Taylor, Donny Boaz and Jordan Elsass that never got picked up. I started writing poetry about 10 years ago as a hobby

Poetry flies from my fingertips
Faster than words from my lips
Sometimes uplifting, sometimes distraught
No college here, I am self-taught

No more than just ten years ago
I picked up the pen and poetry flowed
To my amazement I enjoyed it...

The ways of war are conflicting
With the pain they are inflicting
With screams galore that are stifling
From bullets flying and rifling

Men march ahead to their demise
Filled with hope, dreams and lies
From a government that will hide

A mirror image

For God so loved the world
He gave us a mirror to see
Our own imperfections
And our own humility

For those without any sin
Are nonexistent at best
For those that cast their stones
Their souls will never rest

Be humble in all you do

True Love

Love isn't always seeing eye to eye
It's two hearts becoming as one
When times are good it's easy to smile
When bad it's easy to run

Find you someone that's willing to give
Find you someone that's true
For when times get bad as they often...
