Tears for my nation

Where cheers for gun rights
Paled those for unborn children
And left me in tears

My hope lies in this:

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lordas the rivers of water: He channels it where He wills.”   ~ Proverbs 21:1

As children,
We were taught
To always
Always
Look left, and right,
Then proceed.

As adults
We continue
To always
Always
Look left, and right,
Then proceed,
And we’re free-

For lack of middle ground.

HAIKU (UNTITLED)

Clouds of witnesses weep

We’ve lost our first Love.
Even clouds of witnesses
Weep over our land.

2016 PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEES

clinton-trump-3

I do not trust each nominee.
I cannot vote for T nor C.
I will not vote for he nor she.
I cannot, will not! Nope, not me!

This poem I penned is childlike:
Less fighter jet – more toddler trike.
But this election’s not grown up –
We’re drowning in a sippy cup.
