Bad News

Poem By Tom Maxwell

The news media has taken all the modern day heroes away, When ever everyone starts to look up at someone, they dig for the worst and print it over and over everyday.

Bad news, has changed our society, thinking, in so many ways, you don't hear, stories about or presidents today, like the ones about honest Abe.

Good news is always hidden, without much to say, the worst is always on the cover, and is expanded in different ways.

Almost everyone is trained to remember the bad, then many repeat it the good news they soon forget, and it doesn't excite them a bit.

Crimes will only get worse, with all the advertising in so many ways, the more people hear about something, the easier they accept it in their life everyday.

Everything Works Together

Think about those worms, that wiggle through the land,
they loosen up the soil, so the roots of plants, can expand,

Those plants give off oxygen, to support life on this earth each day,

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Friends That Touch Our Heart

We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,
