"Jack Who?"

Ain't That a Shame?

Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found



Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art

Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Ten

When is it all going to end?

Sleep

Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away

You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Time Awaits No Man

I take no issue with criticism that may
come my way, for you see…I’ve lived
an awful long time and there’s no way
my life could constantly rhyme.

I beg no pardon, for I have tried to live my life
by the golden rule… "Treat others as I would
have them treat me!"

As a young man, I did things that I would never
do again, but at the time they seemed like awful
small sins.

Now looking back, I wonder if that young man,
named "Jack" is really the old man, who now

lives back in the woods in this humble shack?

Once I was young and now I am old and the
time in between was cast of pure gold.

To the young I say, "Opinions and advice are cheap,
but life passes very quickly, so cherish each and
everyday while you can…for time awaits no man!"

Jackie R. Kays
