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 Bottle of Rum

I once knew a man who could stand on one hand.
I once knew a lady she was from far off Haiti.
I once knew a little boy who broke his toy.
I once knew a little girl whose hair was all in curls.
I once knew a little dog that craoked like a tiny frog.
I once knew a big fat cat who just sat and sat.
I once knew a song that said; Don't do me wrong.
I once knew a friend who sang like a wren.
I once knew a place where everyone knew my face.
I once knew this poem was dumb, but hey! That was
before I drank this whole damn bottle of rum.
