    An Image Of Me

    No Beginning nor end, in the image of my Father from whence I came. The immeasurable vastness of my souls abyss you could not begin to fathom. So far past the depths of sorrow even the Angels weep for hope. The light at the other end is an illusion behind me. This is my Despair.

    A Child's Prayer

    Now I lay me down to die Bombs are falling from the sky Planes are flying overhead Paints my playground all in red Mommy now for weeks has slept and by her body I have wept Now I lay me down to die And wonder if Americans cry

    I have always loved poetry since I first learned about it in school as a child. As I got older I would chicken scratch my own versions in a notebook. When I was first moved out on my own as an adult I came across all those poems. I copied them all down in a bigger notebook that I...
