One of My Published Poems

This poem is from my first self published collection: “Good Morning New Year”

WARRIORS

keep on writing you writing warriors

write on you writing warriors write on

fight to the finish, finish the fight

wage war exemplify strength,

show might by the way of your force.

your weapons are pencils, pens writing pads, keyboards and paper. some still use typewriters, none use the gun,

none use the gun,

none use the cannon,

none use the missile,

none use the bomb.

your fortresses, arsenals, armories consists of libraries laid in brick, mortar, sweat, blood and stone

electronic bookshelves also made of digitized zeros and ones.

your eyes see and read

your minds absorb and assess

your hearts feel and embrace

you put our hands to the work

to lands marred by brutality and tumult

you bring compassion and calm

keep on writing you writing warriors

write on you writing warriors write on
