December 7, 1997


a hand


fingers white

in the effort

of holding on

to long


Lord God! Ive fallen far


dont let me further fall




stabbing air

seeking a hold

any kind of thing

to live


Lord God!  Im falling further

no where near

the kind of man I was

hold me

like Peter, hold my hand

lest too far I fall

to die


Lord God!  I long to live

please let me



After “A Thousand Men and a Baby”

the true story of David Ashcom Cruz

and the man that Keenan was.
