This book is basically a collection of poems on various subjects. This is not classic poetry. I frankly started out one night to write something in basic essay/paragraph format and while I had a lot going through my mind, I ended up jotting down a few notes, then at some point, I found that I was stringing those notes together, putting them in basic rhyme and my first writing turned into what I suppose can be considered a poem “For the People.” I found this an interesting and convenient way to express thoughts on a variety of issues and from there, many followed; mainly that year and some more the following years.
I don’t know whether anyone will find interest in what I have written here. And, if so, I don’t really know who. There are no real secrets or wisdom in this book; but, hopefully, some will enjoy it.
The great majority of this book was written in 1993. I had gotten out of the Navy where I had been enlisted from Oct 1977 – Oct 1992. For the year 1993, I was basically able to take a year off without working. This material was only copyrighted in 2009, and none of it has been made public before now.
