Papa Tate

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

We mixed colors from childhood with gentle tones that came with time gave birth to a generation that became the pride of our prime

"



My granddaughter Payton and I



We mixed colors from childhood

with gentle tones that came with time

gave birth to a generation

that became the pride of our prime

 

Those were days of joys un-ending

you think we won't see anymore

'Cause where we find ourselves these days

we have never been to before

 

Each place in life brings adventure

meant to try us all of our days

To test resolve and resilience

that we apply to each new phase

 

We will always have a purpose

as now I am called Papa Tate

To tell you the truth I love it

being a grandfather is great

The first mistake
A band of soldiers finds diplomacy in the dreg forest comes with consequences.

In poetry and to find answers of who we are while walking the ephemeral road upon cracks of pain signs leading you.

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
The days of life may dim at times and new things always feel unsafe and insecure. But what we fear is infirmity. However Life is only good as long as it is changing and growing. Like the seasons we come and go and face the end like any man. So it is that when the time comes I'll conform to the masters plan
