Heart is put into everything
I try to be a good person
Really love my family

Everyday struggles with depression
Yet keep trying

Ghosts in front,

Memorial Day

my niece Cynthia Smothers Carter
and is used with her permission.


Rain...again...
But I have come to the conclusion that
it has always rained on Memorial day
and I have figured out why.

The rain is the tears of all our fallen

A Nicked Poem

entry picture

Nicked was my poem*

I nicked that sucker right back

What a silly mess

Someone has stolen my poem

This time I'm not posting a poem. I'm asking for opinions.

I found one of my poems on a website but was not given credit for this poem.

Should I contact the sites administrator?
