True North

Poem By Alfred Ramos

True north is etched in our heart
Where our moral compass has a place to start

Love is just a slice of pie
Compassion is more than meets the eye

True north can be a Picasso or a Van Gogh
Select our brushes with a passion only we know

Emotions are earmarked by our outer face
So look inside ourselves to fill that empty space

Magnetic north is off by a few degrees
As cupids aim brings us to our knees

Reason is a map we use to go forth
In finding our own true north

Be it a wild and turbulent flow
It’s a direction we all want to go

A Mother's Love

I held her hand as tight as I could
Even though I knew it would not do much good
Her breath was shallow and weak
If only my eyes could speak

***dead And Gone

I didn’t attend your funeral
I hated you that much
I did send roses
The thorns for you to touch

I Keep Telling Myself

I keep telling myself
That things will change
New ideas will rise for us to rearrange
Chaos will bury itself in red tape


There’s a little boy
A fragile tin soldier toy
I know who he is

Love Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Love doesn’t live here anymore
It walked out and slammed the door
It packed it memories and faded photographs
It took its dreams, it took its laughs

When Love Is The Answer

Admit to your deepest desire
Know that your path is lined with fire
Crying will only get you so far
It won’t help you cleanse the scar
