When I Lie

Lunenberg,Nova Scotia,



She said one more trip around the block.
I hoped she would be safe going around.
Not me, sucking wind, I could not walk.
Hope she stays safe, unsure I’d rebound.

Do not think anything will happen, but
reminded today of our Kenyan carjack.
Wrong place at the wrong time is what
and I wondered if we would come back.

Made it home, perhaps not in one piece.
PTSD icing on life’s cake that I’d redact.
Yet, I don’t simply want to live at peace.
I imagine my life will have some impact.

I cannot promise what tomorrow brings
or however many sunsets I have beyond.
Any success, attention will be of things.
Won’t matter when I lie under the lawn.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment 

Unite the World!
