We Don’t Always Get Up

Born my son
of youth,
My pride
shadowed you,

Our long talks
sitting under the stars,
Your wisdom
learning astounding.

You followed me,
To the sky,
Your letters,
soothed ego,
in uniform you came,
healthy and strong.

Randomness comes, without warning,
Chaos follows, tragedy forms,
Every rising
sun it hides,
Limping up my path,
Gunshot one leg,

You a ghost decimated by meth,
My heart bled, my love insane,
weak, sick,

Meth demon chained,
withdrawal, horror for all,

Detoxing,rehab came,
Daily classes, groups and counseling,

Fell on meths ears and a mind so distant,
likewise wife impaled,
two little girls came,

Wasn’t long
Meth summoned you back,
she had a grimy fist,
grasping your soul,

girls gone,
No family,
A Spector,
of the haze,
Abandoning goodness,
for Satans crumbs,

We watched you implode,
only love remained,

Your Wife descended down in your darkness,
Her daughters lost their mother,
Your hand
sought a rope,
many times,

But the demons could not be restrained,
Our pain ebbed and flowed,
The tidal shift’s,
drifted hope to sea,
Only love remains,

Soon came rising waters,
height of our faith,
All was well,
no horizon,
nor darkness,
we saw,

I cried,
I prayed,
maybe sooner should I,
But Randomness
and Chaos,
checked our god,

We each fell like dominos, sheep off a cliff
following
No hope,
no faith,
nor love could
I taste,

My heart became stone,
heavy and throbbing,
Son of youth,
No longer can
I shadow you,

I can only lay you in a velvet box,
hidden away
with my grief,

Yes Chaos and Randomness,
are the true gods of man,
is a two edged sword....

Can something come from naught,
while asleep,
I weep,I weep.

??? – Politics as Usual

Born my son

of youth,

My pride

shadowed you,

Our long talks

 sitting under the stars,

Your wisdom

learning astounding.

You followed me,

To the sky,

Your letters,

 soothed ego,

 in uniform you came,

healthy and strong.

Randomness comes, without

warning,

Often Chaos follows, tragedy

forms,

Every rising sun, in it may

hide,

Limping up my path,

Gunshot one leg,

You a ghost decimated by

meth,

My heart bled, my love

insane,

weak, sick, meths demon chained,

Drug withdrawal, horror for all,

Detoxing , then rehab came,

Daily classes, groups and

counseling,

Fell on meths ears and a mind

so distant,

A likewise cursed wife, two little girls came,

Wasn’t long Meth summoned you

back,

she had a grimy fist grasping

your soul,

 girls gone, family a Spector of the haze,

Abandoning goodness, for

Satans crumbs,

As we watched you implode,  

only love remained,

Your Wife descended down,

and little daughters, had a

new mother,

You reached for a rope, many times,

But the demons inside could

not hold,

Our pain ebbed and flowed,

The tidal shift’s,

drifted all out to sea, but love,

Soon the rising waters,  highest of hopes,

All was well, no horizon

darkness,,

I prayed, cried, maybe sooner

should I,

Randomness and Chaos checked our faith,

We each fell like dominos,

sheep off a cliff,

No hope, no faith, nor love I

could taste,

My heart was stone, heavy and

throbbing,

My son of youth, I can no longer shadow you,

I could only place you in a velvet

box, hidden,

Yet Chaos and Randomness, the

true gods of man,

 is a two edged sword….something can come

from naught,

I weep,

This Poem is a work of fiction, any resemblance to any person living or deceased is coincidental.

Note: Many humans suffer from similar pain, defeat, and tragedy. It doesn’t reflect on a family member or the individual. For this reason alone we should be involved, show empathy, and support, for those whom evil or random chaos has cast her dark shadow or the whirlwind chaos holds fast the soul. Most every religion promotes or speaks on compassion and love. We often feel an affinity for others, if this grows and strengthens Humanity will evolve. Love.
