About the Book

The Search for a Savior,

When those innocent childhood days take flight
And adulthood, with its ache, comes to view,
We awake to misery, fear and blight
Where happiness ascends upon the few.


Crossing the train tracks without a gate.
The train paid no attention and did not wait.
All the pain of the world flashed before his eyes.
The drive by shootings and the many suicides.

To a Hip Revolutionary,

Love is What I Look For,

Love is what I look for in a sea and sky and star.
Love is what I look for in all the things that are.
