My Poem of the Day


Slowly Dying©

You left me crying while you lay slowly dying

Stumped by a system bent on tradition

To turning a blind eye on those who need them the most

You sat in a cell

Living through hell

Day in and day out

Battered and bullied

By those who always have something to prove

Don’t ask me why I’ve relied


A system that’s always plotting

To be certain that you wont walk out talking

About the cracks in halls of justice

Once you fight their actions

That caused you

To no longer want

To be here among the land of the living

Instead you left me here crying while you lay there slowing dying

While I stand here fighting and relying on “we the people”

To bring you justice

My Poem of the Day


On the Charles©

The river is host to many an event

The Annual Head of the Charles Regatta

Athletes from 32 countries come to showcase their talents

Hoping to be on top at events end

The picturesque walking paths host many walks and runs for all types of causes

The Hatch Shell is the home for weekly Flicks during hot summer nights

Don’t forget the fourth of July celebrations


Summer concerts

I’ve seen many a family picnic upon the open green

How about some Zumba to keep you fit

The Charles brings miles of smiles to all kinds of faces from all kinds of places

I’ll always fondly remember my time on the Charles
