    I rolled over in bed, turned my wife’s face towards me.
    I whispered in her hear my desire.
    To trust her, for her to trust me.

  • It’s my daily grind to get up and get out of bed
    To find something useful to do every day instead of work
    It’s climbing that 13,000 foot peak
    It’s my first half marathon
    Watching my dad die from Lymphoma in a hospice unit

    Smoky and full of fire
    I feel the smooth burn

    more like creeks that pooled stagnant water
    war games and bike jumps
    more trouble than we could count

    Ender and his platoon, facing unfair challenges.
    Lined up against formidable odds, outnumbered,
    Reacting and performing in unison to achieve their victory

    Becoming teammates, leaders, friends.
    Winning and losing together, working towards their common goals.

    Not my life
