Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!



That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Untitled

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"

"If"

My Only Son

GONE!

"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Time is a Thief!

Humble

In another time and place,
I might have won life’s race.
But now it’s too late to try
and save face.

I am what I am…
and that I  can not deny,
with eagles I shall never fly.

Just ordinary, plain, and simple
that’s been my fate.
Not a president, lawyer, doctor,
0r a governor of some great state.

Humble I am, humble I shall always be,
just an ordinary man writing this little
poem under a mighty oak tree.
