Every year I think that I won't make it another year, but here I am at 61 yrs old. As you say, Here I am ALIVE!
Sixty Five (Poetry) - 6/17/2012 1:33:55 PM
I agree with Ron.
Sixty Five (Poetry) - 6/17/2012 8:00:10 AM
The answer in one word: yes. In the workforce, experience and wisdom doesn't count anymore, you must be able to multitask and pick up on the latest whiz bang that is going to change the world.
My answer: volunteer. When you do good work for no compensation you are rewarded many times over by the smiles on everyone's faces that you touch.
I will be seventy 12-21-12, still work hard at my writing every day, and have no fear that the world will end because no one wants to hire me because of my age.

Well written, Tony; let's hope things get better for those most in need.
The Violin (Poetry) - 5/21/2010 12:18:20 PM
I wonder what type of music your poem speaks of...
Perhaps I hear folk songs?
Or maybe classical...
Homeless (Poetry) - 5/21/2010 12:16:21 PM
I loved it. There should not be a homeless one among us, if we all just do what we can to help...
Homeless (Poetry) - 5/12/2010 9:36:28 AM
THIS WORK HAS A SPECIAL MEANING FOR ME AS I, MYSELF, WAS HOMELESS THIS PAST DECEMBER. MERCIFULLY, I DID FIND A SHELTER, BUT I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO NOT HAVE ONES OWN AND HAVE TO DEPEND ON THE KINDNESS OF OTHERS FOR SURVIVAL. AND, AS YOUR WORK BROUGHT OUT, ONE CAN COME TO EXPERIENCE A CLOSER WALK WITH OUR BLESSED SAVIOR DURING TRYING TIMES SUCH AS THESE. A WONDERFUL WORK...DONE WELL AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING, GOD BLESS AND LOVE,

Nice poem. I've never been to the UK, but now I'd like to see the place.
Homeless (Poetry) - 11/23/2008 8:33:46 PM
A deeply moving and sad poem expressed perfectly. I know I wouldn't just walk past without putting something in her feeble hand.
Thank you for writing this, Stuart
The Son (Poetry) - 9/29/2008 5:09:12 PM
Perfection in your words. Thanks so much for a beautiful tribute to JESUS!!
Homeless (Poetry) - 9/29/2008 5:07:35 PM
Everyone is busy spreading goodwill to men....even as they pass by a soul in need. Extremely sad and powerful writing.
Homeless (Poetry) - 8/12/2008 10:12:52 AM
I lived in England for three years and I know the weather can be brutal. The homeless really have a hard life especially when it gets cold. I live in Florida and the homeless fight off the bug bites, heat and humidity. I also have compassion for the homeless and the folks who get out after serving time in prison. i myself have never been put in the slammer but as a young teenager I came pretty close.
So I support helping your fellow man when things are down and out.
I pray for a solution to this homeless problem.

First Christmas without her (Poetry) - 5/30/2008 10:59:20 AM
Sorry but I read your poetry out of place and reviewed another you wrote when she was still alive. Know what you went through as lost my hubby of 17 years Aug 17 07, still miss him on holidays and every day in fact. Hard to get over someone you have loved very much.

The Son (Poetry) - 5/1/2008 10:07:08 PM
A great work. He only lived a short while but his sole purpose was to die so that we might have life. He endures.
Armistice Day (Poetry) - 5/1/2008 10:04:16 PM
A sobering write. Yes, it is so important to remember but so human to forget. We value our freedom so often without considering the price paid.
Congratulations on having this chosen by the Royal Mail for publication.
The Violin (Poetry) - 3/18/2008 6:55:20 AM
beautiful soothing cadence in your poem...
I especially like the first stanza.
Someone (Poetry) - 3/11/2008 5:04:06 PM
If only I had learned these things early in my youth I could have saved others--and myself--a lot of grief. (Is is just me?)
Thanks for your wise words, Tony.
The Violin (Poetry) - 3/11/2008 5:01:23 PM
I love your poem, especially the first two lines:
"Resonating beneath the bow...The violin sings soft and low...
For anyone fortunate enough to have drawn a bow over the strings of a violin at one time or another, it brings back the lovely vibrations felt and the emotions its sound can bring forth, in grief or joy. Such a versatile instrument, and a lovely write. Thank you for sharing this.

A Mother's Farewell (Poetry) - 1/11/2007 3:53:15 PM
I am just a reader on authors den, so sometimes I just scan through looking at all different kinds of poetry or short stories. There is some amazing talent on this site, and you should really be proud of your work here. This poem about your mum is soooo beautiful! It sounds like it came straight from your heart and you are missing her very much. I really can't express how this poem has affected me, I lost my mother in 1999 and this is exactly what I would have liked to have written myself. Your pen is truly laced with truth and emotions. You should really be proud of this work, I am sure your mum would be. Beautiful, just truly beautiful!!

Ode to Parkinsonism (Poetry) - 3/12/2005 2:48:00 PM
My Grandmother has Parkinson's. She's managed to hang on for several decades but it's been a very big struggle in recent years. This is a very dignified write. I agree with Nordette. Bless you. Michelle

A Quiet Man (Poetry) - 3/10/2005 11:56:41 PM
This is so heartbreaking. You share a gentle loving heart in this poem. I feel so sad when I think of anyone dying alone and unloved. The greatest human need is love and so many live without it. Beautiful poem.
A Quiet Man (Poetry) - 3/10/2005 1:42:09 PM
Yes it is sad when someone dies and they are alone. No matter what the cause. We found our neighbor and he had been dead for two days.

This made me cry, Tony. Outstanding write as I've
grown to expect from you..
She needs a little company (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 7:11:23 AM
This blows me away Tony. It sounds like something I would write. I've always had such great respect and empathy for the elderly. I worked in a nursing home for eight years and I watched them waiting...hoping anyone would just stop and talk to them. Sometimes at the end of my shift I would go back and visit a little while with the one's who I knew needed a friendly smile and a little company the worst. I remember once, when I was so busy getting my patients up for breakfast, and as usual , we were short of help. A frail little lady, so sweet, grabbed my hand as I went by and said "Would you sit and talk with me?" That just broke my heart. After my shift I did go back to that sweet lady...her name was Lottie..and I'll never forget her. I spent alot of time with her after that and heard many stories of her childhood. She added alot to my life. Amazing poem, Tony. I love your work.

Ode to Parkinsonism (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 6:18:11 PM
A stunning write. Powerful, graceful in its penning. Dignified. Just masterfully done. Did I say I like it?
Ode to Parkinsonism (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 5:06:04 PM
I salute you for your determination! No illness is easy in life, some, like what you have is harder than others, but it all takes perseverence and a willingness to keep on keeping on, no matter what anyone else says or does, just so we cna be at peace with ourselves. I suffer from a differnt illness, but it all comes down to what we choose to do about it. I'm glad you have chosen to do your best... Thanks for sharing. Eileen
Ode to Parkinsonism (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 3:57:43 PM
i guess this is a good lesson to children, we need to spend more time with our elderly and sick parents or friends, maybe we can give them some peace
Ode to Parkinsonism (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 3:54:05 PM
I often worked with the residents in the nursing home that suffered from Parkinson's and found that they would get very frustrated at this disease but then they would come back and really inspire me. This is a well written poem about this disease.
Ode to Parkinsonism (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 3:35:19 PM
This is powerful Tony...
With your compassionate heart you have shown us what its like to have Parkinson's disease. I used to be a nursing assistant and have seen the effects. Thank you for this awesome write.

please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of rocky. losing a pet is very hard, indeed; i know..i've lost several lovely cats myself, and their deaths hit me hard..as did "cajun", whom i had to give away. that was just as hard. i wrote a poem about her. check it out!! compelling write!! love, and (((HUGS))), your friend, karen lynn. >tears <

I like it! Not enough people work in rhyme and meter these days. Keep up the good work.

You chose a powerful vehicle "the drain"
to carry the feeling in this all the way home. -- It's very much a conditioned social perception, you know, that this phase has to impact all thrusters as disempowering.
Yes, the body is breaking down, but the soul inside has not aged -- how much import would the state of the vehicle have on the quality of life if our aged were properly reveared
for wisdom, experience and tenacity. In truth your presense is of more impact today than ever. Vicky

I'm sorry for my earlier insensitive comments. This deserves a 10.

thanks for reminding me that extra care and understanding must be given to elders.
