About Me

A POEATREEMAN

It is not with Computer or Pen I Write

It is Heart and Tears, that Write the Words

The Ink is My Soul The Scroll My Life

For the Words Written, is each Day of Life

Open Your Heart and All Can Come in

You Have One Time To Take it All in.

FOREIGN TRUTH

I VOTED FOR GOD
FOR I KNOW
HIS POLICIES.

I WILL USE
MY PRAYERS
TO REDUCE
MY SORROWS.

THE BALANCE LEFT
WILL GO TO GOD.

THE COST OF HEAVEN
WILL BALANCE MY DAY.

I HOPE THE SCALE
WILL SHOW MY WAY.

FOR WHAT IS LEFT
I WILL HAVE TO PAY.

WHO?S POLICY IS RIGHT
TRUTH !
IT DOES NOT LEAN
LEFT NOR RIGHT
IT STANDS ON TRUTH
TO SEES WHAT?S RIGHT
IT SHOWS ITS POLICY
IN THE LIGHT.


POET?S NOTE

I WANT
A POLICY OF TRUTH
THEN IT WOULD NOT
BE FOREIGN.
ACROSS THE WORLD
OR HERE AT HOME
IT IS NOT THE COST
OF MONEY
THAT IS SO HIGH
IT IS ALL THE LIES
RAISING OUR DEBTS.

A DEBT INCURRED
BY A COUNTRY
CANNOT MEASURE UP
TO THE LIES IT UNFOLDS
YOU ASK
WHERE TRUTH IS SPEND
YOUR ANSWER
IS IN THE DEBT.
WHERE LIES COST
YOU WILL PAY
THE DEBT.

RONNIE AND THE WISE OLD OWL
By Carroll Crosby

A WISE OLD BIRD

You did not get Wise
Because you are Older
You got Older
because you're Wise

We all exist

A Wise Old Owl
is not in a tree
Not if He is Wise
to what He sees

He may
Hoot and Holler
If He is Wise
He would be Quiet

Take what is in the View

Know
When and not to Speak
Know
Who Perches Beside you

It is one Thing
To Get Under your Feathers
Another Thing to Lose Them

If I am Wise
to What is There
I will Keep what I Have
And Grow with Life

Maybe one day

I will be
a Wise Old Bird

If I do not Ask
too much
Only Expect to Glide
For it is Not
Easy Being Here

Through Wisdom
I Can Learn
I am better
For I have a Chance
to Grow my Feathers

Hoot and Holler if I Want
What Bird am I
That is Wise Enough?

I am Still in a Puzzle

Trying

To Find where I am
Supposed to Be

A Wise Old Owl
Once said to Me

Learn your ABCs

Then Start with Wisdom
to See What is Me.

A Poeatreeman

Know Truth and Wisdom will Follow

GOD AND COUNTRY

I can better Serve my Country
When I can Serve my God First

I can See my Country's wrongs
When God is there with me

I can help my Country right
When God is there to Show me wrong

I can Take my Country's Path
When it Leads the way of God

I can Love my Country Dearly
When God is not just words we write

In God we Trust; I Hope it is Truly
One Nation Under God

For when all is done what is Left?
The Faith you have in God

When all is Remembered
Will my Country have Heart?

I Served my God and Kept Heart Too
I Gave my Country The Best I Could

I Shared both with Heart and Love
I Served my God and Country Too

I am a better Countryman
When my Country Serves Him Too.

A Thought
There is one Course that will take me through
The Choices I made and the ones I did not do

Written For and Dedicated To My Country

A Poeatreeman

When I am Faced with doubts

Let God guide my Hand

When my Country Chooses

Let God be The Path

When my Country has doubts

There is God who is Always Waiting

Ask Him for His Views

Let God Speak to you

You will See what to do.

With Tears to Fall

How
Do We Say
Good-bye
When the Heart
Cries Out With Sorrow?
We Pray to God
Ask Him
To Help the Hour.

A Tribute To
Our Public Servants
We must Honor
Them
Each
and Every Day
Not
Just When
Disaster
Strikes the Hour.


To the People
of New York,
To the People
of Charleston, S..C.

To The Firemen
Lost
who suffered all cost
I pray Heaven
is the last place
you?ve climbed

THEY HAVE SUFFERED ONE OF THE GREATEST HOURS 9/11/01

May God Be
The Fireman
Who
Rescues Me

Him For Life

May
Catch Fire

A GOVERNMENTAL POLICY

A Governmental Policy
Has to be Defended

By Those who Fought a War
and against all Truth

For the First Barrel to Shoot
is Deception

Truth is not Dead
only Wounded

But we
That must Face the Guns

Are Left with a Battle
We Sometimes don't Want

To Fight For Truth
Or Our Country?

A War That Rages
In Each Our Hearts

To Commit
To all We Know is True

To Stand Up
When Our Country is Calling

What Voice do I Hear
and Who is Calling?

The Drums of War
Or Truth Being Silenced out?

I must Know Wrong
To Have the Answers

For Truth
Cannot be a Casualty For Long

And Government
Will have to Face it all

It is our Blood
That Runs in Red

It is Our Time
To make it Right

It is Our Country
That We must not Let Die

It is Our Hearts
That Can Keep it Alive.

A THOUGHT!

There are no Credits in War
Only a Sad Commentator
For Peace
Fear is not ignorance!
Ignorance is War
For Knowledge
is the Understanding
Your Enemy is War
Strike at it with Wisdom
Peace will be yours.

A Poeatreeman

It is Truth that will let us see it all

It is God that can protect us all

Dedicated To All That Held Up Truth

For You have fallen but not forgotten

One Day all will be unveiled

The Cloak of Secrecy Covers us all

For Truth Spoke The Words,

He heard what He had said

My Country must be served,

Truth will be My Guide

Honor is My Country,
If Truth is not to Hide

Loyalty is My Country,
If Right is on its Side

Duty is My Country,
If I can walk with God

Honor, Duty, Country,
Is better Served with God

Loyalty is Better given
When Truth is at its side.

is not ours to Lose

The Cost was
Paid by Many Souls

Light of Freedom

Will
Shine Throughout

Extinguished Only

Remember
The Fallen,

They
Paid with
Their Life

Remember
Their Spirit

They
Fought for
your Rights

Tell me

Stained

Who
Colored its Life

It
Waves in the Wind

When
Freedom is in Sight.

Dedicated To The Fallen Souls

Lives now Serve

I Serve Hearts

Hate
Is what I Combat

The Casualties
Will be Sorrows

Care will have to
Aid me through

Yet in the end

Love will come through

Peace will Win

The Tears will fall

As Love Hurts too

God is there
To see me through

Each Day I Pray
Peace will Come

For Prayers
are my only Ammunition

That Hate
Will not Win

Love
Is my Salvo

I Fire
To Win

I keep
Hate in check

That it will not
Come in..

When HATE is WITHIN

UNWANTED SOLDIERS

TRIBUTE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVED IN VIETNAM

To The Men of Vietnam
For
their valiant efforts

No
matter
what their cause

You
served in a place
where no one won
felt the pain
of untold sums

You
left your home
carried through
All
the fears
that
came with you

To
a land
you did not know
Or
reasons
why
it came to be

A
price
you
paid for liberty

To
do your best
and hope to be
That
all you have done
is not in vain

A
life or a friend
that you
came to know
One
that might
die for you
Or
someone
that you lost

These
Men of Nam
who came to see
The
blood that spilled
was tears of pain

Sharper
than
a bullets sting

For
on the front
they
were not alone
They
had
a front to see

back where
the flag waves
The
fight
had just begun

No
bullets to fire
only pain
and sorrow

For
you left us
with an
empty hope

No
place to go
and heal
our wounds
For
deeper
were they
when
we
came home

More
brutal
than
the war we left

It's
all too well
who criticize
The men who
Went this way

For
if we fail
to take a stand
Where
will you critics be?

Not
all is right
when one must fight

I
am hoping
as we learn

That
when we do
it is for the right
Of us
to keep our Home.

AN UNWANTED WAR

TRIBUTE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVED IN VIETNAM

The tragedies
of Vietnam
were
not the War

the
wounds inflicted
by
our own people

For
they cut deep
into our Hearts
left
us
with our scars to bear

No
flags
to wave
but fist in hand

No
greetings,
but ugly tones

No
embrace,
only empty arms

No
cheers,
but cries of tears

No
remembrances,
only pain

Of
a War
that we once fought
Without
our peoples Hearts.

May
it never be so

If
we
have to fight a War

That
we never go!
Without
our people's Heart,

and with the will to know

That
Freedom is our friend

For
Failure is our enemy
If
we lose the will to win.

A Poeatreeman

The Greatest sin
is not the War

the lack
of Will to win it

For
all is lost
if we lose sight

of
the shores
we stand on
May
one day be our's.
