Fog descends, covering us with
A white shroud, of softness.
Halos of light can be seen,
On the headlights of autos.
Eerie light rays, project downward
From the tall streetlight sentinels.
The softness mutes the noise of
Tires, humming on a distant freeway
And the noise of dogs, barking at
The early morning, paper boy,
Delivering the news.
Foggy mornings, mystify,
Capturing my thoughts,
Like light attracts moths.

Very nice poem.

I see by the fire
That glows in the room
And notice, as others,
Who peer from the gloom,
That you must have been,
Cast from without the womb,
Cause nobody wants you.
You sit and you judge,
Like nobody can,
Whether, I, in my failings,
Am less than a man.
Why?

Follow the Sun,
Burn up the road,
Sharing a bed
With a stranger.

Stay up all night,
Sleep in 'til noon.
Drink from a jug,
Passed in a circle.

Awake with my hand,
Clasped light to your breast,
The warmth of your body,
Floods over me,
And I am lost
In the reverie,
Of our time together.

Trapped within, held without,
Love for one another,
Don't you know? Can't you see,
He will be your brother?

Black, yellow, brown or white,
Mixed among all others,
Loving you, loving me,
They are all our brothers.

Sons and daughters, everyone,
Offspring, of all mothers,
You can be, what you will be,
They are all our brothers.
When we have love and trust
And respect, for each other,
I will say to you my friend,
Yes, I am your brother.

Gone, forever, from our sight,
Gone, to be no more.
Long remember those,
Who were here before.
Be proud to know,
They did not die in vain.
We are here, because
They cared, to give their lives
For those, yet unborn,
For those, yet unknown.
There are those, who will take a dream
And build, for a brighter morrow,
Have faith for there are those,
Among us, who will carry forward,
That which we believe in
And that we work for.
