My Hope by Blair Gaulton

My Hope
May we all live
in a place;
where we can be unafraid;
to show our face.
Nor be persecuted;
for what we do or do not believe.
For our gender;
for our sexual orientation.
Or be forced to live in a particular way.
Where lies rumours ‘n’ slander;
are seen ‘n’ immediatedly declared
as false.
That it be done publicly with candor.
Plainly clearly in unmistakeable words.
That all who hear
will have no more fear.
Sadly, at this time;
we still have a ways to go.
One day, I truly believe our world
will be so.
No matter;
where you go;
all will be treated
with love respect ‘n’ peace.

A Late Summer Night by Blair Gaulton

A Late Summer Night
Walking;
through a late summer night;
my thoughts are aflight.
Thinking;
‘n’ wishing you were with me tonight.

Perfection ‘n’ Connection by Blair Gaulton

Perfection ‘n’ Connection
Trying for perfection; can cause you to lose an important connection; to yourself.

In the Dark by Blair Gaulton

In the Dark
Sat alone in the dark;
facing ‘n’ embracing my pain;
watching night’s stars dance again.
There is no cure.
The best thing is your company.
To tell you things;
you did not know before;
‘n’ see you laugh ‘n’ smile more.
