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!

The copper sun scorches the desert sand,
as it reflects the wavering heat waves,
dancing hypnotically across the never
ending deserted land.

Can you feel the burning heat?
Can you feel the hot sand under your feet?
Burning throat, dry cracked lips…
hot southern wind in your face,
as you breath in short shallow

Lost in the desert…
Look all around, nothing but hot sand
as fore as your red swollen eyes can
see… just more sand.

But what’s that just a head?
Water! Water everywhere, but
not a drop to drink…

Thirsty! Oh! So thirsty!
It’s just mirage, I think.

Oh! What I’d give for just
one little drink!  

Jackie R. Kays

Note: I don't know about you!
      But I'm going to the kitchen
      and get me a big drink!...smile.
