Poem By Randy McClave

I am strong
But, I am also tired,
I just want to be retired.
Years, I've worked
And I have also slaved,
My soul it's been depraved.
I was exhausted
Inside a mill,
Now, I just want to sit still.
After thirty plus years
I have given my best,
Now with scars and burns I can finally rest.

Comments about Exhausted

After giving so many years of life to work, one feels detached from worldly things and pass remaining years in peace, in ones own way. That feeling of loneliness is evident in the lines. Very nice.
The sentiments of workers having put in a lengthy innings of toil have been articulated along with a desire to retire after being exhausted due to it.

I Heard The World Crying

I heard the world crying
As though she was dying,
And then came the rain
As though sympathy to her pain,

Then He Cried

When he left his mother and the doctor spanked his hide
In that delivery room he then first cried,
But, that cry that he uttered so proudly and loud
Was a proclamation to all, that he'll make his mother proud.

Boxer's Chess

I am no man's rook
I go wherever that I look,
No one controls my every move
What I do, only I approve.


Victory is ours!
Said one crow to the other,
As they soared in the sky above.
For below them they had spied

I Am My Father's Son

I Am My Father's Son
That is who I am,
Though I am, still his child
I am still a man.

I'll Never Get Mad At You

I'll never get mad at you
No matter what you'll say, or I do,
With you I just wanna stay happy and glad
Never sorrowful, or upset, or sad.
