How long I wait for an honest wife,
why did I survive, this shattered life,
destroyed by deception & gang of knife,
unhealed without love, stricken from strife.

My daughters and sons, still not yet born,
I'm surrounded by children and I am so torn,
I asked for mercy, but I received largely scorn,
so I worry so wary, wearied, weakened and worn.

Truly spoken, because truth is all that i have now.

Forest fire fighting in Nor Calif


This reminded me of my summer spent fighting forest fires in Northern California, taking time off my work as a forester (penghutanan) at the Menominee Forestry Center in Wisconsin.
