There sacrifice!




There sacrifice

Canine heroes, military soldiers two different world's one mission

There born with a loyalty and determination to protect this great nation

And unconditional love and honor are there driving force to be precise

A place in my heart will they always remain because of their sacrifice

Out on the battle field there first in line ever alert to the dangers ahead

Giving no thought to themselves they’ll keep on moving forward instead

Censing danger ahead they know what to do and will carry it out not thinking twice

Those soldiers were spared from that land mine ahead because of their sacrifice

When the smoke clears they all look around for their canine soldier whose life they saved

Seeing their hero they all bow their heads with tears in their eyes for their lives unscathed

So thank those furry soldiers who've served and protected us all at a very high price

And always be grateful to those two world's that came together and made there sacrifice!


Dedicated to two very different soldiers with one mission on their minds

To serve and protect us all with their lives may we never forget there sacrifice!!!!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this one because I saw an article on the news a while back that told a story about this canine soldier dog who saved the lifel of  his soldier and all the men with him by running ahead and tripping the mine saving every one there it made me think that you don't see or hear anyone talk about our canine heros out there who do what they do for this country and those men and women who risk there lives for us so I felt compelled to write this poem it took me a long time to write because I wanted to get it just right hope you all like it

Inner Sacrifice

Allah the All-knowing,

Sent Ibrahim nocturnally a vision,

To sacrifice Ismail,

The much-loved son.


Much tense Ibrahim was,

Considered it as a nasty deception,

The Satan was playing with him,

The next night gifted him the same revelation.


An untamed storm occupied Ibrahim’s brain,

Adored Allah the most and Ismail,

Was his world,

But the love for the Almighty did prevail.


Ibrahim went to Mount Arafat straight away,

With Ismail by his side letting him discern the Divine Will,

The malicious knife was about to immerse in blood,

Right then the Omnipresent sent a ram to kill.


It was a test of faith for Ibrahim to be sure,

Since Allah is never thirsty,

For blood like the Inca gods,

Such is His glory, His divinity.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This poem is based on the story of the prophet, Ibrahim and his elder son, Ismail according to the belief in Islam.

I saw this black
and white
photograph once
of a Deep South lynching


of two African Americans
(or black guys
as they were termed then)
hanging from a tree


by their necks
eyes closed
(as if they dozed)
dressed in rag clothes


one with his head
to one side
hands untied
a crowd looking on


one white guy pointing
the rest looking
with acute interest
what the two guys did


or why
they were lynched
I had no idea
or why the need


to photograph
a sense of justice?
or threat?
or for a laugh?


I had no clue
but looking at them
hanging there
surrounded by a crowd


I thought
of the Crucified
the Christ
and wondered


if He'd been hanged
by the neck
from some gallows
instead of being


nailed to a cross
and His followers
wore small gallows
instead of a cross


it was alter
His sacrifice
or lessen
the sense of loss?

Yog-Sothoth: The All-In-One

Cthulhu Mythos

Dwelling in the interstices between planes,

Composing the Universe.

Manifestation as a conglomeration,

Globes shifting, flowing into another.


Deity of Sorcerers and Wizards,

Granting them great power

To travel between the planes

To see into a plane through crystal globes.


Commanding various monsters

From distant worlds...

Gifts in return,

Opening the way

For Yog-Sothoth

To travel from His domain.


Tawil at'Umr;

Wishing to travel to distant places.

Being the least malignant

Him unveiled

Causes great sacrifice.


Utterly mad,

Destruction on its path.

The Cult of Ne-Pang

Is a Yog-Sothoth Cult.

Order of the Silver Twilight

The Temphill Cult

Claim this name too.


Power to travel within the planes,

Reaching any other time or space.

He is the Key and the Gate.

Opener of the Way,

Wishing to enter this plane.

Eternal Self-Worth

Bind and curse me into the depths of darkness,

I'll carry lost light to forsee its truth.

Break all the fragile parts and undo all the goods whom weep;

weep for freedom.

For all the lures become the chilling echoes of attraction

and its soul confinement.

Tongues taste what once refreshed the goods from evils,

now left the need to feed for self-worth to become eternal.

I raise my skylit map amongst the parasitic shadows embodying their prey,

only to release chained curse buried beneath innocent hosts.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this to try and define loss of self and others.

For You I Gave it All

Cast not these doubts aside as you revel unto glory
and yet it dies upon a lonesome shore
But reality is not a tool for friendship
and one's worth cannot be scored
But I'm losing
and this battle is far from over

Oh, I'll follow you to the ends of the Earth
and let you torture me so
Spit in my face and thrust disgrace
until my blood is soaked no more
And split the hands that held you close
that kissed the face of the Holy Ghost
who cast only me aside
and bade me unto fall
I suffered in the pain, but for you I took it all

I'm torn inside and my heart is reeling
Whose strings did snap within thin air
and broken, battered, lying lifeless, upon the ground in disrepair
I cannot move, nor can I breathe
Like severed shackles who beg reprieve
And into the air, I am released
to fall and break yet once again
but this time more with ease
My hands, they would not catch me
And I was forced to watch them bleed
I suffered in the pain, but for you I'd let them be

My eyes, they screamed for mercy
as I was blinded by your hate
Yet this "reasoning" is nothing more than unadulterated fate
blissful in the evening, when the dark has come of late
and cuts into the bone of the soul it hopes to take
Yet I was baptized
unto the very gates of Hell
lost and withered in my decision to grant you peace of mind
I suffered in the pain, but for you I'd slowly die

I wallowed in your pity
until it coated my own skin
until it burned straight through my flesh
and then baited me to sin
whose claws did capture and enrapture my heart that lay within
and grazed into my very being that forced me to begin
this long and hateful journey that merely started on a whim
Drink me whole until I'm gone and finally lost inside
I suffered in the pain...but for you, I gave my life

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A poem about self sacrifice. I ask you my dear readers: how far would you be willing to go to save the ones you love? Food for thought, hmm?

Trudging forward

I've been called a Revolution
A tidal wave of chaos and confusion
And with this voice of change
Comes alienation and pain


Human I am but cannot be
Too many cries and clinging needs
My resolve to take the abuse
Supersedes misery you infuse


Weary and tired, I cannot afford
The wages I'm given are fairly poor
If you ask, I will give
Credit and debt will be my friend


Walk straight through the desert storm
I'm lonely but I have my soul
So here I walk on and stay
So I can get you "there" and show you the way


May these heavy steps have purpose and reason
I cling to the future and turning of seasons
Praying the diseases I take on
Won't incubate inside my heart
