About Randall W. West

I have always enjoyed writing poems to express my feelings. They are a reflection of my mood at the time. Consequently, it could be remorseful, mischievous, or philosophical. I've frequently been asked to write for special occasions by family and friends. I do so but I don't really enjoy it because I'm locked into a time frame and category. I like to write when I'm inspired or just plain aggravated. I will refrain from political subjects because I despise people in the public eye such as sports or entertainment that feel obligated to use their forum to force feed their opinions on others. I'm not on any social network because I KNOW that eventually I would put in writing something I could never take back!

    Understanding How To Protect A Relationship

    in I'm Sorry Love Poems

    I'm sure it won't be easy repairing my poor heart.
    I've gone about it knowing right from the very start.
    I simply can't complete it now and maybe never will.
    It's got a part still missing that only she could fill.

    The Situation In The World As It Digresses.

    in Current Events Poems

    A school is no longer a place that's off limits.
    They gun down our kids in a matter of minutes.
    Riots break out in the blink of an eye.
    They murder children and no one knows why.

    The Return From Vietnam

    in War Poems

    War is an ugly business.
    The cost is much too high.
    We fight so others may be free.
    But that's not always why.
