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!

Time Keeper

Listen!
Can you hear it?
Yeah, that’s it!
Tick tock, tick tock!

The sun comes up,
and the sun goes down.
The moon comes up,
and the moon goes down.

Another twenty four hours
has come and gone around!
Thousands of new babies are born.
Thousands of people have lived and died.

We each can spend our time as we wish!
Some are workaholics, some are lazy
frolics, some pay no attention to time.

Some act like they have all the time
in the world!
Some count the years, some the days,
and some the hours.

Time is the second most important thing on this
 earth, the first is your next breath.

The next time you waste time, think about this;
You can’t borrow time!
You can’t buy time!
You can’t steal time!
You make time!

Time is a sneak thief, it will silently steal your
moments, hours, days, years and eventually life itself.

Wasted time has no rhythm or rhyme!
A wasted minute in time is forever lost!
And  that wasted minute comes at a very
 high cost!

Tick Tock!

Jackie R. Kays
