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?

Untitled

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!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

A Bird's Eye View of an Astronaut

Riding the solar winds,
a bird's eye view of
the earth I have.

People all around the world,
hurrying to and fro, each for
a different reason they seem
to go.

Some seem happy
Some seem sad
Some seem mad

Each doing their thing;
Some working
Some warring
Some playing
Some dying
Some being born

Houses of all kind I see;
Castles
Mansions
Track houses
straw huts
Cardboard shacks

I can see the rich,
poor and in between

I can see the hungry ,
sick, miserable,
and down trotted

I can see that people are
near the same all
around the world.

Some;
Sing, dance, love,
pray and hope.

While others;
Hate, kill, deceive
and manipulate.

Things seem to stay the same,
no matter how high or far you go.
But, I guess that's why the say;
"To each his own."
