We Are The Road Crew Audiobook

I have always been intrigued my Knights of Medieval Times, I wrote this some time ago, and just tweaked it, hope you like it. Ken

A Knight Before Battle

Heading for the battlefield knowing,

That the odds against a victory,

Are so great that they are staggering,

I won’t ever leave this battlefield,

Here is where my last battle is fought.

 

As I head toward the enemy,

All that I can think about is you,

And the life we have had together,

I have no fear now only sadness,

Because today we part forever.

 

This I do for my king and country,

As I have done before, what I must,

As I do my duty for honor,

I can see that there is no honor,

Leaving you for a fools errand.

 

But turning back is not an option,

The dogs of war have just been unleashed,

And I charge headlong into the fray,

Steel upon steel, and steel upon flesh,

Countless numbers of the enemy.

 

The battle wears on, the enemy,

Overwhelm us with their sheer numbers,

Still fighting on, and then I feel it,

I can feel the sword piercing my chest,

But I feel no pain except for you.

 

I know my dying will break your heart,

And as I lay here, life leaving me,

All feelings are replaced with sadness,

Sadness that I won’t see you again,

Your beautiful face is my last thought.

In the past months I have given away literally thousands of copies of my work via Kindle. All I have asked is that anyone that is able, please leave an honest review. If you have time and are able, I would ask again that you leave a review. They are vitally important for new authors such as myself starting out. Getting the word out is so hard, so if you can, please leave a few words about your experiences with my work. I will leave a link to my Amazon page to make it easier. Thank you again.

For All Eternity

After staring at the bright light,

And making my way toward it,

I find that I have walked through it,

And when my eyes adjust I see,

A small cottage in a green field,

I walk to the door and enter,

And inside I find you waiting,

I had expected heaven to,

Be what I was told as a child,

Pearly gates and clouds and angels,

But what I see before me is,

Heaven as it was meant for me,

A small cottage with only you,

For all eternity….

Little Girl Lost

She’s been so mistreated,

Such a little girl lost,

Hurt by everyone,

Everyone she loved,

Afraid of being hurt,

She gets hurt every time.

 

When something good comes by,

It makes her so afraid,

So scared that something good,

Will hurt another way,

So she runs from something,

Something she should embrace.

 

She’s a little girl lost,

So lonely and alone,

By herself day and night,

She doesn’t need to be,

There are good things waiting,

Waiting out there for her.

 

She won’t be lost anymore.

Poetry and prose, some of which I have published on this Blog, about the major changes in my life and how I have dealt with them. Preceding each piece is a line or two about what prompted each piece. The title translates, “Starting Over Again” and that’s what it’s really about. Starting over.
