there is a place

for simpler times

sitting on a merry-go-round

watching life pass by

and all the fun there is

remembering the past

holding onto the present

looking out for the future

a moment arrives

as breath leaves the body

the heart renews

life continues round

the merry-go-round


Fire Escape

starlight during the day

I hear her call

moonlight shines down

I see her fall

escape down a fire escape

to hide from them all

embrace dreams

to hold a candle too

reposition life

to a standstill

beckon forth from within

thirst for knowledge

the key to begin
