Looks Like

Contemplating travail…

   Looks Like

When you work too hard
Burn out looks like depression
Don’t play that last card

The last card being whatever desperation brings…

Possibility

Contemplating hope, and not…

   Possibility

Hopeless not always
Lack of possibility
Sometimes mood’s decay

   -gl-

Emotion is real. But not always reality…

Live By

Contemplating duty…

   Duty’s

Duty’s but a word
But one that warrior’s live by
The fable I’ve heard

Thoughts…?

To Feel Relaxed

Contemplating fear and the realness of life loved…

   To Feel Relaxed

I have stood in fright
And appeared to feel relaxed
Watching my son fight

   -gl-

What else can I say…

Feel the Strength

Contemplating love and faith…

   Feel the Strength

When just a baby
I could feel the strength he had
Never been maybe

   -gl-

Some worries along the way, and some faltering steps, but always up and onward…

Stepping Up

Contemplating the struggles of life…

   Stepping Up

Only just begun
Babes toddle. Men Struggle on
Son turned twenty one

Come into his own
Stepping up to toe the line
I see that he’s grown

   -gl-

Life is good…

Every Day

Inspired by a son grown…

   Every Day

Waking every day
Proving himself every day
Yes he’s found his way

   -gl-

This week is dedicated to my Son and all we’ve learned together…

The Killing Shot

Courage, sacrifice, and getting the job done…

   The Killing Shot

He shoved the bad guy
Deflecting the killing shot
Job done. As he died…

A tribute to a best friend I never met…

From   –   A Warrior’s Tears: Poems Of Pain   –   (aWIP)

Heroism should be celebrated. Pass it on…

Honored

Contemplating honor and service…

   Honored

Fighting for the weak
Honored to protect and serve
It is Police Week

   -gl-

A tribute to all those that fight for others…

The Brave Can

Contemplating the mob…

   The Brave Can

In all the clamor
Only the brave can muster
The will for manners
