I wrote this poem after I visited Jonny Coyote‘s blog and read his beautiful poetry! Thank you for sharing and inspiring me.

To Johnny Coyote who in my imagination is a cowboy Stetson and spurs included

forgive my wild imagination Johnny and accept this poem as a peace-offering 🙂


Never to men

Whose heads

Held high

Filled with

Glory and pride

for all the tears they fought

for all the battles they cried

for every little in-between

that was never  known

or even seen

For all the days

Unaccounted for

For the nights

Hidden behind

An empty door


Never to the brave

Who fell with honor

Never to the strong

How stood

With horror


will you be forgotten


Will you be taken for granted


Will you be unloved

You battle because you have to

You battle for what you believe in

You battle for what is just

You believe in peace

And hope no child

Hurts like you do

But remember that

no matter what

you are not alone

And like the light that stands

At harbor

Your light will glow

No matter the storm

Nor fog or snow

Your light will shine

And with privilege be shown.

  1. A amazing poem. We need more people of peace in this world. Few men speak of peace. Only threats and hate. Time for the meek to stand together. Tell our leaders. We do not want our children to die for oil and greed in war we do not understand.. We need to pray for the Middle East. The wise people need to come forward in the Middle East. One life is too many to be lost to religion and borders. Thank you for the poem. It is outstanding.
