Remembering Oklahoma

The year was 1995 and

I remember seeing news footage live

as the Oklahoma Murrah building

was destroyed as domestic terror

hit heartland America

in such a devastating way

168 people died that day

because of the derangement

of Timothy McVeigh

and America was forever changed

Wino

A young man sitting on a sidewalk bench,

talking to an old man who was drinking White Port wine,

The wino’s speech was kind of slurring, and it looked like he’d been crying,

He said:

“I wasn’t always like this, kid,

there were some years I really shined,

I’d give anything, if I could go back in time”

The young man took the bottle from him, took him by the hand

saying: “you can overcome this, you can be free again,

and if you’re willing to help yourself,  I’ll help you any way I can”

Faultline

Brutal earthquake rattling an Island Paradise

Leaving residents & tourists fighting for their lives

Whatever it takes,they’re determined to survive

The poem you see here is mine

It’s directly inspired by the movie “Faultline”

I’ve got to say, it looks low budget but it still was fine

I think the cast really shines
