The Lucky Penny
There was a boy Who did not have a penny to his name Pushed and shoved around He had to fight to stand on the very ground
We can place a door-stop but never a ful...
Before greatness, there stand I, there I stay— Mount Everest. Founded on this land
A Child's Ache
Sunlight streamed into my eyes Out of the warm dwelling place- the womb Into breath of the human lamb A child.
Never A Mistake~
A new beginning, bridges. Morning crosses over you, never a mistake.
The Dear Struggle
The right illumination, the north of fashion Is high tradition.
Soul surrounds A positive core Love unconditionally
On the corporate runway Projects take-off Tasks are ticked away Deals land

The Lucky Penny
There was a boy
Who did not have a penny to his name
Pushed and shoved around
He had to fight to stand on the very ground
He walked on.
Yet he didn’t dream of bread and butter
He starved to achieve something better
Like a beacon, his eyes shone
His heart he wore, like a crest
And drummed his fingers to create
His very own beat
He reached in and found the lucky penny
That many others
Lose sight of, grappling, to emerge victorious in the human heats.
With this penny clenched in his soul
He could go further
Pole to pole.
