and giving pause,
for the sacrifice,
to a cause.
A dream,
a promise,
an ideal.
A destination,
far off still.
Honored kinsmen,
brothers in arms,
in the face
of harm.
Empty spaces,
in our ranks,
We bow our heads,
and give thanks.

The Green Email

In a fit of envy,
I sent an email out.
I stated how a person’s life,
had filled my own with doubt.
How I envied their looks and wealth,
their present and their past.
The clothes they wore,
the food they ate,
the list was quite vast.
I poured out my heart,
I gave it all I was worth.
then I sent my jealous email,
to everyone on Earth.
