Ignorance to Strength

Puff Puff

First years of life

Rapid, wild, exciting

So it seems at the time

 

Bang Bang

War rages on

Agent Orange spreads

Chances are dead

 

Ding Dong

Church bells ring

Wedded grandfather

Expanding my family

 

Huff Hack

Energy fails

Lungs grow weak

Beloved goes to sleep

 

Sob Sob

Demise is near

Wish you well

Journey still afar

 

Tick Tock

Time sure flies

Memory of you

Stays deep inside

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
