Early Darkness

Poem By Louise Gluck

I blow out the birthday candle
I ask for the impossible
Celebrating another year
I can't slow down father time
I'm still preparing for life
Until that job is mine
Until she says I do
The boy is becoming a man
But still scared on how I do
Downfalls will get in my way
I have to see them through
Listen to what they say
Knowing people will come and go
Knowing my mistakes I make
The corrections I must show
It's part of growing up
It's my birthday wish this year
Days go by so fast
Another birthday is near.

Still Remains

She starts to talk, so listen well
Behave the way, when first you greet her
Sing the song that hasn't been writ
Take the road that she once spoke

The More I Live..........

THE MORE I LIVE
THE MORE I SUFFER

THE MORE I SUFFER

Hate

They say hate is another fear
A fear to not love
A fear to not belong
A fear to not be here

School

Before, Vick became my name
Before, Sad thoughts set in
Before, Girls started to say no
Before, Entering the party world

A Place In My Head

Bothered by the rain
My balance I maintain

1999

Standing in front of a house
A place where I grew
Watching people around
The girl I once knew
