Take Courage

the only way to beat death

is to live

the only way to live

is to have hope

the way to have hope

is to have courage

pushing on gives optimism

whatever begins, ends

Still Caring

battered, bruised

used and abused

but not destroyed

deception, lies and bullshit

no bond just a hypocrite

is their holy writ

the weight presses down

yet ...

when the call goes out

the deal goes down

I’m still willin’

coz I care

…….

unlike some

Onward & Upward

This poem goes out to my buddy and dear friend, Victor  …thinking of you dude 🙂

the struggle against adversity

brings forth changes

dragging one

up or down



push upward

reaching for

higher levels of functioning

which did not previously exist



building resilience

absorbing damage

but not failing

bouncing back
