I have written and published many poems all my life, including a self-published poetry book.

"My Aim"

My bed hummed my name;

I passed up quality rest.

My eye is on my aim.

My mind is on my quest.

I passed up quality rest,

To dance around town all day.

My mind is on my quest,

As I pushed slumber away.

To dance around town all day,

I'm dedicated to my to-do list of needs.

As I pushed slumber away,

I pulled out life's weeds.

I'm dedicated to my to-do list of needs,

As I lined up my goals.

I pulled out life's weeds,

And placed tree seeds in the holes.

I will watch my trees grow;

My eye is on my aim.

In steps, conquer a sleepless show;

My bed hummed my name.
