Go Forward

Think forward to the future,

the days and weeks ahead –

the opportunities abundant,

for the past is really dead.

 

Let the clouds and sky surround you,

let the sun shine in your smile –

the future is upon us –

it’s been here all the while!

With My DAD

As a child

and with my dad

I learned to fish

still makes me glad

to think about

that long,

stinky pier

we walked with care

our tackle near

and listened to cheers

as people reeled up

their mystery catch

with excited smiles

and hopeful eyes!

I couldn’t wait

to drop our lines

to feel the bite

the best surprise!

The March

It was a day

unlike any other,

I marched for myself

I marched for my brother.

 

I felt so determined

to walk with love and belief

and to march with so many

was such a relief.

 

But, to go it alone,

with my head held high

to march toward a future

Is something I’ll try.
