The last romance

Was unexpectedly short.

Was beautiful

And then was gone.

So much hope can end so quickly.

We all wish for so much in life.

Yet, there are few resources

To meet all our needs.

So, we are left with what?

Shortages–

Shortages of everything we expect:

Shortages of emotion, of hope,

of love, of happiness.

So then, what next?

I guess that we just have Life.

So then:

Just steady up and carry on.

Because there are no other choices.

 









About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."

 

The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.

 

The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
