Once Upon A Time;
We Were A Country To Be So Proud Of,
To Be An American Meant Something;

We Held Our Heads High,
And Answered To No One.
We Protected The Weak,
And Stood For What’s Right.

We Went Out To Save Life,
And Always Be Counted On.
We Were A Great Heat,
And Fought The Good Fight.

We Were So Great Once,.. . .
Once Upon A Time In America.. .

“America is Not The Greatest Country in The World Anymore”

“Grandmother’s House”

Grandmother's House - ©

Over the mountains,
And through the woods,
From Grandmother’s House, I flee.

Her legs are hairy,
And she’s big and mean,
And she means to do harm to me.

Running so fast,
I tripped and fell,
And I think I broke my knee.

If she catches me,
I’m doomed for sure,
Because I’ll never be free.

Cookies and cream,
She’ll feed to me,
She’s more evil than evil be.

I just need to rest,
And take a moment,
I think I’ll count to three.

I’m hiding here,
Between the trees,
And praying she don’t see.

If she catches me,
She’ll love me all over,
And I won’t be able to breathe.

“Today Is A Dream”

Today Is A Dream

“Today Is A Dream” ( Tomorrow? )

.

It’s Something Tomorrow We’ll Forge;
Today, It’s Here,
Tomorrow Is Gone,
And Yesterday,. . . “Has Only Begun!”

Love Is Really A Dream,
Wishful Thinking Of The Heart,
Something If We Try Hard Enough Is Real!

I’ve Loved,
I’ve Dreamed And Lost,
I’d Never Give It Up For Anything!

To Feel The Things I’ve Felt,
To Dream The Dreams I’ve Dreamed,
To Be With That Someone That Made Me Alive!

Tomorrow Is Still Yet To Be,
Something Waiting Inside Of Us,
To Come Alive With Every Breath,
A Dance Yet Not Danced,. . . “Or Yet Felt!”

To Feel Is.. . . . .

“The Awe of It All”.. . . . .

The Awe of It All (Lined)

We Are Not ‘This’ Creature,
This Thing We See Before Us.
We Are ‘That’ That’s From Within,
As One With The Universe.

We Are Not That We Are,
But,.. . . .
‘That’ We Have Always Been.
