for my father on veteran's day

war sucks and i hate it and always will...but for veterans like my dad, who fought so i could have the freedom to sit here and try to make a difference...

i thank you♥


For my father on veterans day

they stormed the beaches

on that cold gray day.

they did not know what to do

nor what to say.

they ran straight ahead into enemy fire

friends around them shot dead

such scenario dire.

yet fought they did

for the freedoms they believe.

we are thankful for those who made it

and for those who didnot, we grieve.

for without these heroes

we could not type these words

stand for that which matters

have our voices heard

greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
