How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!

That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?



'OH! My,my,my!"





Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"


My Only Son


"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

Once upon a time...Many, Many Years Ago

Once upon a time, many, many years ago in a place forlorn
a forsaken young boy lived in orphan scorn.

He had no mother, no father, no brothers or sisters
to comfort him in his orphan plight.

He was all alone during those long days and frightful nights.
Those despairing days slowly turned to months and years.
He becomes a young man full of anger, pain and hidden tears.

Life goes on and the young man learned to survive
his past fears and trepidation.
He turns his life around and finds peace in his new
encounters and relations.

But he's never forgotten the early days of his youth when
sadness, fear, and anger was the daily truth.

Those sad days are long go, but the frightful
emptiness of those childhood memories live on.

Once and orphan...always an orphan.
Once upon a time…many, many years ago.

Jackie R. Kays
