(Johnnie and baby Beulah in 1998)
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Negative words and anger lead to dead-ends and separations. A wise man is quiet when anger control his mind.
Sometime I want to hurt someone.
Smart and wise-ass faces tempt you with comments and useless words.
People with no kindness or loyalty for anyone demand your time and duty.
Tire and drowning in personal problems.
Yearning for better days.
I don’t blame no-one for my struggle and situation.
I believe we all dig our own graves. Good and bad.
Need to lose my anger. Family need me back.
I’m like so many.
Just staying ahead of the bills.
Waiting for a miracle that won’t happen for a while.
Need to find laughter and peace.
Need to shut up and be kind.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
I will put aside my anger.
Can work it out with patience and love.
