  2. A POEM FOR AUGUST WILSON

    This poem is dedicated to the man August Wilson,
    He was from Pittsburgh and a native son.
    His plays was about life and times under the hot sun,
    As one play had ended another one had begun.

    His words and emotion was about the cycle of life,
    The ups and downs and paying the right price.
    The lust and love that could turn cold as dry ice,
    And passion that is for another man’s wife.

    The lights and the stages that are set for the drama,
    These are the facts of life that would lead to trauma.
    The crying tears of a son for his dying mama,
    These are the plays that August wrote with karma.

    Many of his plays and his words are left behind,
    Many I did not read but they still touch my mind.
    He was good person for all types of human kind,
    He was soul brother, way ahead of his time.

    I see him standing in the light at an angle,
    He is taking notes from the Angel Michael. Once again his words and energy will recycle, This will be Augusts’ light reflecting as an angel.
