As I Lay Here

As I Lay Here
By: James Dubeau

As I lay here
Eyes awake
Thoughts and dreams
My soul does make
Sleep is needed
Which can’t be fake
Or soon the day will come
Where I will break

All Kinds Of Mess

All Kinds Of Mess
By: James Dubeau

Just like a kitten
Clutching the branch
You are just
Hanging in there
But there you are
Sitting tonight
Drinking your drink
Fine Jameson
With juice
From an apple
Tears streaming down
As those mental daemons
The soft defenseless
Inner workings
Of your brain
Buck up chum
Keep it steady
An even keel
For there is light
At the far end
Of this tunnel
We call life

Mentally exhausted
Physically exhausted
Emotionally exhausted

What is...

What Is…
By: James Dubeau

What is
This life
That I live
What is
This choice
That I made
What is
All around me
What is
Going on
Around here
What is
The course
To take
What is
Going to be
The outcome
What is
The meaning
Of it all
What is

No Update Today

Due to the death of a friend and overload of work I am unable to post today and my future posts over this next week will be spotty.

Radios crackled to life
Relaying messages
As aircraft
Dove against each other
Machineguns blasting
Filling the air
With gunpowder
And bullets
Men shouted their status
Men shouted attack plans
Men shouted for assistance
Voices were full
Of aggression
Voices that were cut off
In mid sentence
Mid word
Mid syllable
Nothing could be done
To save those lost
Those heroic men
Who gave their soul
For God
And country
But listen
And remember
