I dedicate this poem to one of my greatest friends, JDW.
Your heart has always been angelic.
You say you have enough love to go around.
I worry about those who take advantage and leave my friend’s heart embedded into the ground.
You must not forget that in the process of spreading your great love, to please, please love yourself.
Remember the strength that you are made of.
You are not broken. On your two feet you can stand.
Continue to create those beautiful pieces with the talent that God placed in your two hands.
As children WE were together during our darkest hour. As adults we must not forget our inner power.
Negative thoughts leave us paralyzed. Negative emotions cause our dreams to never be realized.
Yes, Young Man this road to self discovery is full of pain.
You are tired of crying. You are tired of the constant strain.
Your life is not destined for turmoil! All of it can be changed.
When I told you that you were better, I meant that you were great.
Your dreams are not over. It is never too late.
Young man, my dear friend, and one of the only men who had nothing from me to take.
I love you. I believe in you.
Stand up. Stand up, I say!
You can rebuild any pieces that you feel have gone astray.
You can start anew with every granted day.
