Title Our Authors


By Lee A. Nelson

I want you to smile.

I want to tell you

soul sweetening tales

of souls made sweeter

along our roads

of joy and adversity.


I want this all

to be the song

I don't care to hear

the song we all insist

no matter how many times

we exhaust it

per generation

the song that never touches

the soul

as it touches the souls.


I want that song

but a soul doesn't allow that song.


The soul is the principle of life.

This life hasn't been bad

per say

but it has been



I offer you

my soul

best I'll ever reckon it

as this has been

a life.


There could be a song here.

There is great joy here.

The soul knows this

so please excuse

the narrator.


He may not be reliable.
