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!

If Only I Could.

If only I could turn back the hands
of  time, to my youth of yesterday,
when life seem to sing and rhyme.

If only I could have captured
that time in a bottle, now it
would be forever mine.

But time has escaped from that
magic bottle, and I’ve spent all
of my life, chasing rainbows and
impossible dreams.

Old and bent, hair of white, eyes
no longer shinny an bright.

If only I could turn back
time for a day, I would
start all over…
knowing what I know today,
maybe I would have done
things better in some
small way.
