Stranger Paths, Video Introduction

Hello Friends!

I made a video to briefly describe my book for those more visually inclined.

My book can be found on Amazon in the link below

Soldiers

I met a soldier back in Iraq

That let me hold his gun

He had named Darlene

I was barely fifteen

But he trusted me then

In a war zone when

A mistake could mean a life

I think God made poetry by keeping us alive

Wars

War took a different shape

One that was not so familiar

But they thought that my war was more valid

One that had actual bombing, shooting and destruction

But I see the validity in their pain

After all

We’re all the same

And

Divorce

Abuse

Illness

Boredom

Lack of inspiration

Are all battles we fight

None more significant than another

To those experiencing them

All teach us what we need

All point us to peace

To love

To the pursuit of happiness

 

Wishes

Would your finger wish your hand harm?

Would your finger wish your arm harm?

Would you?

Well-being is a choice

One that helps the body rejoice

For its master

Would you, a small part of this universe

Wish harm

On your larger self

Your whole?

No not at all

Well being comes from well wishing

Wish well

Dictionary

You are more than

A name

A gender

A career choice

You are what’s underneath

Buried deep

And between a definition and another

The essence was lost

Let’s put it back together

And leave definitions for those

Unsure of who they are

I find no need for man-made

Dictionaries
