Johnny Cash (Poem)

He was a singer

A great guitar ringer

but who he was

went so much deeper

than that

He was often a poet

Sometimes a preacher

Some just called him

the man in black

Though he’s been gone now

For a few long years

his life made a permanent impact

This is a tribute to one of my heroes

The unforgettable Johnny Cash

By:J.N.R Dutton

Saving Grace

He’s thinking of suicide
As the needle hits his vein
Sometimes it seems life’s beauty
Is outweighed by the pain

But then he hears a sweet whisper
despite the haze that’s hit his brain
The voice says
“let me help you, child
You’re going to be ok”

One caring person who reaches out to someone hurting may save a life.
