Consider gentrification and the sense of exclusion it brings along. Then, consider a baby with so much life ahead as well as uncertainty..

The Sounds of Drills...

The sounds of drills fill the air,
The means of progress, there and there.
Why is such limited housing being furnished?
Thought the construction offered service?
Can it be that only a few emeralds were considered?
When these buildings, were conceived and delivered?
What of you and me? Only pennies.
We fall and drop, but still shine plenty.
Insignificant and yet the first of monetary means.
Full of potential and a link to your valuable construction beams…


Lily, I saw you this morning…
Hanging on my calendar, you said hello.
Even though, your tiny frame hurt ever so.
They say you have cancer and entered remission.
You continue to hope and pull through submission,
Displaying your blind faith and playful acceptance,
Never knowing if tomorrow will make its entrance.
Or will a sheet cover your sparkling eyes,
Carrying you forth, on heavenly rides …
