Mama do you see them
they are everywhere?
Mama it's so pretty
just as you said.

Gardens full of colors
greens, blues, and reds.
It’s so peaceful
only calmness in the air.

Mama you told me
there will be so much love.
That it’s a place where it won’t matter
if I am White, Black or Brown.

You told me there will be someone
who will take my hand.
Mama there are many
spread across the whitened land.

Over there is Grandma & Grandpa smiling at me.
Oh, mama there’s uncle Billy and cousin Irene
even the twins down the street.

Sweet Mama it is everything
you told me it would be.
Heavens gardens of colors
that wait for you and me.

IN THE PASSING

When freedom became evil.
When progress is done at any cost.
When non judgment became judgment.
When humanity fought humanity
on every home front.

When power was misleading
and ego didn’t care about truth.
When it was easier to be sarcastic
than building love in hearts and souls.

Freedom
before it became.
Oh, freedom
before it became blame.

When fear leads people to only
only thinking of themselves.
Pushing their conscious away
far away from their heart.

Freedom
before it became.
Oh, freedom
before it became blame.

When lies have come to be honorable
as long as it supplies or saves.
Fits in and onto insecurity
to justify the lack of integrity.

Freedom
before it became.
Oh, freedom
before it became blame.

So here’s to respect and morals
the true freedom of love in a heart.
Values, honor, and compassion
as life is much more than ourselves.

Freedom
before it became.
Oh, freedom
before it became blame.

DISHONORING FREEDOM

God had a special plan
when you were born.
He wanted you to have
a chosen love.

You needed a family
that would love and care for you.
I wanted a child
so I adopted you.

God saw my heart
and the empty space in yours.
He brought our souls together
for a chosen love.

I instantly felt your spirit
right then I knew.
Our destinies were to walk together
enhancing each others world.

There are reasons for everything
in our seasons through time.
Learning and growing
from assets of a chosen love.

You’re my wonderful blessing
from God’s special plan.
An extraordinary love
for you are my chosen one.

MY CHOSEN ONE

We create that space
in that place
as he so loved the world.

Is there trust in man
that he would
take care of the lands?
As he watches
the destruction from chemicals.

One person’s fear
is another ones adventure.
One person’s possibilities
is another ones struggles.

The one whos goal is to walk.
While one who can walk stands still.
As the not knowing compares
to make sense of their own.

As he so loved the world.

Do not run.
Do not hide.
Don’t let fear turn to anger.
Your own choices
placed onto others and the globe.

As he so loved
As he so loved the world.

Blinkers are placed on horses
as man lets his mind do the same.
While standing still around them
is the truth as he loved the world.

Children that get
the wrong kind of attention.
Children that are sick
scared and hungry.
In a world that wants what it wants.

As he so loved the world.

As blame is placed
it does not ease guilt and shame.
As hatred agrees
with wicked revenge in the land.

He watches
as he so loved the world.

So busy saying something isn’t
instead of seeing what is.
Blindly following lies not truth
to agree with judgmental
points of view.

As he so loved the world.

Each soul is alone in the end
the deposit of love or hate.
Faith that gets replaced by control
ones who try to stop hope and joy.

So it be told while he watches
as he so loved the world.

HE SO LOVED THE WORLD

Effort.
I make no effort.
Cause you see
it’s all about me
and no effort.

I don’t have to.
If I don’t want to.
It’s not about what has to be done
its all about me having fun.

Cause you see
it’s all about me
and no effort.

I don’t care
what someone needs.
I won’t go out of my way to please.
It’s all about entertaining me.

I want attention.
I need attention.
I’m the center of the world.
Attention.

Cause you see
it’s all about me
and no effort.

As long as I get
what I want.
It does not matter
it just doesn’t matter to me.

I make no effort
so don’t ask of me.
Cause you see
it’s all about me.

No effort.
Just no effort from me.

I DON’T HAVE TO

If they make fun of you
wait, it will come back to them.
If they don’t believe you
wait, for they will be shown.

If you are being ridiculed
ignore them, for they will be ridiculed.
If they judge you, remember
they are trying to justify what they lack in.

Have patience
for faith is in so many things.

When they won’t respect you
they battle feeling it about themselves.
Ignore it.
Your not their target to blame.
Just keep being you.

If they do not give you positive support
be careful of their jealousy.
For they are busy competing.

Have patience
for faith is in so many things.

As it goes around
it comes around.
They just might think
it doesn’t pertain to them.

Have patience
for faith is in so many things.

If it doesn’t work one way
try another.
If it was meant for you
it will happen.

Have patience
for faith is in so many things.
Let it go and have patience
what ever is supposed to be it will be.

FAITH IS SO MANY THINGS

It can not be changed
nor erased.
Try as you may to ignore it
it’s in the background faded.

It will never be gone
you can never make it go away.
It’s not like it never existed
it was not just created.

Nothing could ever replace it
you can’t buy a new one in the store.
You can not paint over it
it can’t be demolished or destroyed.

It’s timeless and endless
it starts at the beginning of each day.
It can be exciting or boring
adventuress or peaceful.

It has happiness and sadness
good times and bad.
It is shaped by every minute
through thoughts and actions.

We wouldn’t be here without it
our history by name.
Life as you create it
honor or shame.

ONLY ONCE

You’ll have your dreams and vision
you can make them all come true.
Little girls can do anything
because we believe in you.

If you want to be a musician
a scientist or a teacher.
If you want to be a builder
an artist or the president.

“You can do anything
because we believe in you.
You can be anything
you can make them all come true.”

Don’t be afraid to try things.
Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t.
God gives us special things to do
to fill our hearts with happiness.

Don’t stop yourself from trying
you’ll never know what you’ll find.
Have fun in exploring your visions
don’t stop and question why.
No, never stop and question why.

“You can do anything
because we believe in you.
You can be anything
you can make them all come true.”

Oh, little girls can do anything
that they really want to do.
Little girls can enjoy many things
because we believe in you.

Yes, we will always believe in you.

WE BELIEVE IN YOU

About Me

Bio

If eyes become opened
or something struck a cord.
If a tear appears
or a smile from ear to ear.

It has.
It has arrived at its purpose.

If it
bought up a memory
an idea or enlightenment.
If it aids in fighting a battle
or contents a soul in turmoil.

It has.
It has found its reasons.

If it places hope or faith
patience and understanding.
If it lightens the journey
to different perspectives.

It has.
It has awakened a soul’s heart.

For it is not I
it is what it’s supposed to be.
For me God is behind everything.
I just pay attention.

CV/History

I have been on a poetic journey capturing life, people, events, tragedy and more through poetry for over 45 years. With over 5000 poems and several different topic collections from love, abuse, healing, and people that are missing and/or murdered.

I specialize in personalized poetry. Capturing what ever the person has in mind or wants to share. I can create superficial, funny, and abstract or heart felt on any topic of choice for the present, past or future. My poems are simplistic yet full of deep, at times raw emotions.

Anne Ku a pianist and childhood friend of a missing/murdered woman put music to some of the poems that I created for the family.
“Disappeared from Earth,” “Billy lost his daughter,” “Grandmas love,” “She walked above hearsay.”
