More Poems

I was inspired by the Word Around Town. These I've posted are nothing close to as good as the poems that I heard but I thought I'd share.

I wrote this one 8 days before my sister passed away from complications from leukemia.

Back Home - 8/2/95

When did you think
That you'd end up here again?
At the very beginning
Back to mother
Back to being a child
Dreams shattered
Plans changed
Just like that


Is it that simple
To end dreams?
To start a nightmare?
One from which you feel
You'll never wake.
