  1. How Do I Make Amends?

    Black And White Issues

    How do I cope with the shame that I feel
    And then look you straight in the eye?
    And how do I claim to stand for what's right,
    Then accept disregard for your lives?

    Poem Thanking Doctors And Nurses

    Have you seen the doctors who hardly get to sleep?
    From sad weary eyes, silent tears they weep.

    Yet see so many dying right before their eyes.

    Poem About Michael Jackson

    You taught me the ABC's and my 123's. Your musical genius will go down in history.
    Your nickname was the King of Pop. You Never Stopped Until You Got Enough.
    People of all ages learned to Rock With You, Billie Jean wasn't your lover and you Beat It too.
    Your music was Black or White, Thrilling was your game. Now that you're not here the world will never be the same.
