I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Take us to the prisoner Let us gaze into his eyes To see what kind of man It takes a nation to despise
    Take us to the prisoner Let us look upon his face To see why twenty thousand men Would gladly take his place
    Won’t someone give a drink to him? Remove the chains and let him live Let him live
    Take us to the prisoner Let us listen to his voice To see why worlds of wisdoms In a cell without a choice
    Take us to the prisoner Torn and bent beneath the chains We wonder if the world is really Worthy of his name?
    Won’t someone give a drink to him? Remove the chains and let him live Let him live
    We know where were going For we heard the new winds blowing And were got to know for ourselves
    It won’t help to listen to someone else
    Take us to the prisoner With his eyes so full of grace The priests have lied And kings have died Filled with their own disgrace
    Won’t someone give a drink to him? Remove the chains and let him live Let him live Let him live Let him live
