The Patriot Returns

Poem By James Waters

Battered and broken I return to you
My time spent in battle is finally through
My country served proudly, I stood the test
I fought side by side with our nations best

I am A soldier, A patriot, true to the cause
My American heart beats without pause
Any time any place any where
This soldier will stand tall and be there

I love my country and will protect her at all cost
I fight for the old, the young, the weak and the lost
I fight for an ideal that is greater than I
I don’t complain, or whine or ask why

But for the time being I am home with you
My duty served my task is thru
But I’ll be watching, over there and over here
And I’ll be putting a hand to my ear

For if ever this soldier is again called to fight
I’ll lace up my boots and do what’s right
Look out world the Devil Dogs are on hand
Ready to fight in the air, on the sea or on land

Pen Battle

It started with a thought
A pen and a blank page
Slowly the ink flowed
And released my hidden rage

Tamborine Man

I beat my tambourine
On the corner everyday
To earn a scrap of coin
And send my message on its way


Sometimes I laughed
Mostly I cried
That is until I died

News Time

Tick tock tick tock
Time ticks away
Soon will come the end
Of another hate filled day

How Can You Hate Me

How can you hate me for the color of my skin?
Because I am short or tall or fat or thin
How can you hate me because of my race?
Do we not all have a human face?

Streets Of Blood

A young mother and her daughter
Tease and laugh and play
Their world full of ugliness
Forgotten for today
