A poem of deep thought. I wrote this poem as a result of the story. Rides on waves..."My angel experience"for an instant in time my eyes were opened..
The deep meaning of this poem really comes to life when you read the short story that preceded it, I missed my opportunity when it was presented before me on a silver platter, an easy choice, My only hope is that I will not be as blind the next time. read the short story "My Angel experience" then you will understand this work fully. seriously_dave

Personal and Heart-felt poetry. straight from the deep recesses of the heart of this author. My heart was broken when my best friend passed away, this poem was a love letter to her from the Lord..
As the great tempest moves in upon you, asking no questions, seeking no answers, So your strength will prevail and your wings shall grow stronger, you will fly higher then the Eagle that seeks its prey from the clear blue sky. Faster then the humming bird which speedily races about, fulfilling the purpose for which it was created.

Venture through the mind... of this young lad as he experiences. life the way that only a young inquisitive boy can experience it. this poem is a wonderful twist on the back of such tragedy.
"like an astronaut from outer space looking down into their place, I just wonder what it is, all those puny eyes do see. As I tower overhead, why do they always run? never stopping, more sand is dropping, even after the job is done. Their pyramid is growing, higher up into their sky. are they trying to reach the heavens? I wonder and question why?"

Look, Look what we have made... One day I began to think of all the material things that man has created, (basically all from the dust of the earth,. when you think about it) Cars,computers,building structures,gadgets, etc. etc..

My fascination with fire.. Ive always been fascinated with fire, since I was a young child. This is a funny, or not so funny story. I guess it's a strange kind of a warning, "don't play with matches".
It was his turn to light the fire and he did. I wanted my fire to get the biggest, so I let it go. He said, "put it out!" I said, "no no, not
yet!" He said, "PUT IT OUT!" I said, "not yet!, not yet!" I let it get
real big. The flames were about 3 feet high, I remember them hitting
the roof of the vehicle, that was when I started hitting it with the 2
x 4 that We used to extinguish the previous fires.: - )

The city was fairly well structured though, with lots of people. As
soon as I crossed the bridge and entered the gates of the city, I was
suddenly enthralled by hoards of people. One could barley walk with out
people bouncing off of them and the instant that they spotted that I
was an American off the ship, they flocked to me like bees to honey.
mostly kidds and I say kidds for a reason. they were like pestering
little goats. They would follow me everywhere and beg for pesos.

A story of my life.. Just what exactly is a "real" friend anyway?. for two years we hung out together everyday, we did everything together, we were best friends..
What is a “friend” anyway? Are
my work mates my friends? I guess! The time that we spend with each
other, is a lot. Eight to ten hours a day, we are all entangled in the
same struggles. All working towards the same goal, to get that next job
out. Superficial friends at best! We are all busy doing our jobs, not much time for personalizing with one another.......and
after work? The stresses of life keep us occupied for the most part.
Have to go to the store, and take the kids to practice, stop by.

Taylor was barely a year old and I was pregnant again. (I wanted four kids, before I married Andrew. I'd had my tubes tied after Aaliah, was that divine inspiration or intuition? Whichever one it was, Thank God for it!) I don’t know that I ever really sat down and thought about being pregnant again so soon. I did have a 1 year-old, actually he was around 1 1/2. I only know that I was happy “in the family way.” I’ve heard a lot of women remark that they feel the happiest when they’re pregnant. I.

Five hundred years have passed this nation, the Itazipcho camped; [ within its own circle] guided by their Chief, Standing Hollow Horn; and while the sun shone the chief sent two young scouts two young scouts to hunt for game.
