Before I die, I want to...
"Write something that will continue to do good on the earth after I am gone."

South Padre Island, Texas


  1. David

    After accepting what the above exercise had shown me; a glimpse into the inner me, I thought, and pondered, and imagined, and then I wrote this poem.

    I Wonder

    I wonder who will read this after I have left?

    Will the words still speak to a world I had never seen?

    Is there a thread of humanity that flows from beginning to end?

    Do the words of poets before me speak through the words that I write?

    Does my love still warm the heart of a soul I have never had a chance to meet?

    I cannot ever answer these questions. I can only lean on my small bit of faith in God.
