  1. 21. The Mentor

    • By Jeff J Breseee
    • Published by Family Friend Poems October 2008 with permission of the Author.

    I paused to stand and watch a man who had come to the road's divide.

    • By Ebony Black
    • Published by Family Friend Poems October 2021 with permission of the Author.

    Time is endless but goes too fast.
    You long for the future, then yearn for the past.
    Summer's heat quickly turns to frost,
    A child grows, their innocence lost.
