Alpha and Omega

The golden tears flow in
the innocent years of childhood
when falling on your knee
just doesn't seem fair.

The golden years grow on
the experienced tears of adulthood
when  days spent working seem
like they were never there.

Many Things Change When It Starts to Rain

Many things change when it starts to rain.
Life's movements just aren't  the same.
The world becomes different when it's wet.
Foundations shift when they should be set.

Many things change when it starts to rain.
Ankles, knees and joints forecast the pain.
Birds frantically fly to avoid the storm,
and then  the dark clouds finish their form.

Many things change when it starts to rain.
Falling water cleans the streets and drains.
Air becomes easier and better to breathe.
Many people spend this time in their sleep.

Many things change when it starts to rain.
The ground and all its plants stand to gain.
Dry pores of the earth's skin expand and close.
Moisture is used in formulas God only knows.

Many things change when it starts to rain.
Water drops collide on the wings of a plane.
Driving, especially at night, takes more time.
Tires spin and glide, crossing yellow lines.

Many things change when it starts to rain.

My Pen

My pen, shiny black in the center, and 
        chrome on both ends, gradually
        comes to a point.
Without it's cap, it looks like a long 
        bullet or a loaded missile, ready to
        explode on impact.
Yet the impact of words written by my pen can
        have more damaging results than any
        flurry of bullets or bomb explosion.
The written word can stand centuries of
        repetition, while the explosion happens
        once and the damage rebuilt.
Written bullets can pass through generation
        after generation piercing many hearts
         and souls without spilling any blood.
The pen is the weapon of my choice.
