World - I Don't Need

Poem By Paul Warren

I don't need to feel so very sad
About what I see that makes me mad
I don't need to exclude the few
When they are different from me and you
I don't need to argue the right of a cause
When it is apparent what is wrong without pause
I don't need to be quiet and chaste without word
When what is right needs for all to be heard.

On a blazing day when a cool breeze blows

Stretching to the horizon

World - End Of Life Options

And some dignity with it from degenerative diseases that are horrible in their breath

Social Comment - Who Will Stand For The Children?

In judgement’s call a parchment list revealed
Of deeds indefensible and innocence congealed
A baby left all alone in an oppressive heat
The mother’s denial was for herself to secrete

Family - The Melancholy Fragrances Of My Youth

The melancholy fragrances from my youth
In the test of time that have in my memory stood
My mother cooking her homemade pasties as they bake
My father gluing wood for his latest project he would make
