Poems written by a veteran in our Veterans' Victory House program.
In Search Of
Because Of You
Before you came
I never knew love,
it was a word/thought
that I was always thinking of.
Hoping of it
to have a true experience
with someone who was true herself
and with a love that was legitimate.
Now you have come
and brighten up my day
with the wonderful things that you do
and the sweet words that you say.
My family/friends notice in me
a sudden change and keep asking
"Why I feel this way?" I try to
tell them that love has finally come
and in my life, it'll always stay.
My family/friends don't understand
or even have a blue but the
reason that I truly feel
this way is all because of you.
Perpetrating the Woo
The image that the boyz present
is a world filled with constant turmoil
destruction and pain.
To perfect this image, the boyz
have or are willing to work day/night
and even overtime and within the battle plan
between the forces of good/evil,
it's all fair within the perimeters of the game.
Those who've protested against this image and stood defiantly against the architect
and its crew, they have quickly slew,
while they happily and subliminally
constantly go on until the end
perpetrating the woo.
Drifting Out at Sea
For so long, I was just drifting
out at sea, hoping that by passing,
I would notice you and you would notice me.
Even through the constant storms,
I never gave up that one-day,
we would eventually cross paths
Now, because of the storms of life
and finding within myself the promised"peace", I am no longer
a lost ship drifting out at sea.
In Search of Love,
I'll go out on a limb.
In Search of friendship,
I'll Search until time ends.
Where there's love
that's where I'll be
wrapped with its mystic
clouds of happiness so protectively.
True love and friendship
derives from deep within oneself,
so once found,
gladly share them with someone else.
For all things come freely
from the heavenly father above
Remember this as you go along
your journey for whatever
you are in search of.
