Walking Miracle

When he was born

His Dr’s thought he would surely die

but they never knew the strength

of the warrior spirit he had inside

It’s thirty something years on

& he is still alive

and every day with every heartbeat

He chooses to fight and thrive

California Nightmare (Poem)

Let me tell you about the flip-side

of the California dream

It’s not all glitz & glamour

like is portrayed on T.V.

Housing is expensive there,

and there is rampant poverty

There are homeless, addicts, and panhandlers

walking the streets

I was only there for a little while

but I can’t forget what I’ve seen

More attention needs to be drawn

To this tragedy, this state of emergency

By:J.N.R Dutton

 

New Poem

I remember growing up listening to

“Jack & Diane”, “Rain On The Scarecrow”,

“Desperado” and “Simple Man”

There are so many other songs

in the soundtrack of my life

They’ll stick with me, surely,

Until the day I die

& when my time is over

& I’ve got no more seasons in the sun

I’ll leave a mutual love of music etched

In the heart of my son

J.N.R Dutton
