Taking Care of Family

Stocks, bonds,
and CD's

for my family

A love that grows
with dividends
praying that it never ends

Security and peace
of mind

should I die
from this old grind

I'll leave them
with a brand new start

Love's monetary

piece of heart

Inside Lane

Lines of wisdom follow
furrowed brow trails
to crossroads of pain

and intersections of loss

Squinting-squishy eyes
of babies crow feet laughter

Routing whincing pains of joy
to gratefulness etched

Streets of glowing creases
behind pretentious fast smiles
for lights dimming outside

Forging crinkled paths
back to inside's road

traveled not long ago

Highway twenty five
