About Me and My Poetry

I have been working in the mining industry, yes underground for 32 plus years, I have seen alot of people come and go and miners are their own breed of people. Yes some are college educated and love our jobs. As for me, I enjoy reading other peoples thoughts,and I try to find something good to say about most people and try to be a positive influence on my employees and all people in my everyday life. I have been through some very dark times in my life, most have been brought on by myself, but by the grace of God and alot of self thinking and searching I have overcome most things in life. I try to always be a positive role model and have learned most things in life the hard way.Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts and your remarks are truely welcome good or bad. I for one Love Poetry.com and being back on line and being able to retrieve my old poetry was awesome! My wish is that we all can find a way to communicate via email if possible to share our lifes experiences and to be there for one another. I can be reached at willarde@compassminerals.com or motoxrat58@yahoo.com. Have a Blessed day and keep writing. All of your work absolutely and truely brightens my days!Ed

This poem is written for Wesley Mouton, "Mouttee" some called him, but he loved to be called "Po Devil". Moutee worked at Cote Blanche Mine in Louisianna for 40 plus years and left us unexpectedly last week and is sadly missed by all his freinds and especially his family. This is for you Mouttee.

First of all I need to explain this before people freak out. When I was very young I learned to tell backwards stories( mainly fairy tales(TAIRY FALES) from an old friend. Alot of people have done this through the years and read these every trip I make to St. Judes at Memphis where I go up and read to kids and spend time with these amazing young children. It is written in free form, very easy for me to do recite but hard to write. I am doing this for the mother of Abagail Sanchez, a little girl who is dieing from a very rare blood cancer but this one and Rindercella(Cinderella) are here Favorites,. I will eventually put both of them on this site so when your reading this please realize I havent lost my mind but love doing this. The amazing thing is, Kids realy really get it. Some adults just dont!

Some may ask why Gino,
why is he number one?
Why do they vote for him

Just a quick note to all of you wonderful poets and story tellers who may have or may  have not walked out the door and forgot to tell the ones you care so deeply about how you feel. It happened to me and it never will again. Just a few thoughts about the lives that were lost, so senseless, this past week in Auroroa Co. and to all the Families who now are without that special someone. I am now adding The amazing first responders who tried to help out all the preciuos children and teachers who were killied in Newtown Conn.Tell the ones you love how you feel. Here is an old poem I am re-writing!

Just thought I would share a silly poem about Hate, Racism, Age, Education and just wonder why people always forget, that the only true color in the world, in my opinion that matters, is Red, the color that Jesus shed on the cross for you and I to have a better life and to care about one another. Thats is what Amazes ME!

Not a poem,
Just a question,
I enjoy her writings and thoughts

Some think of revenge as getting even
 and getting even can have a great cost,
It could be rewarding in your mind
