Writer's Note: this poem is dedicated to Catgypsy and all of my cherished followers who all have touched my life and inspired me to exist even when there was no reason.

Thank you, Kenneth Avery

Born in hot blood, fierce words, hate and war


I took my place. I hated my race. Even loathed even more my face.

Cheap work was pictured blood and fear, nothing but poverty to show

Who's that, the little boy asked. Oh, just another soul in the snow

I lost my name, the booze I tamed, and time to me stood outside


I watched him die, my lady gently cried, and my two friends became darkness

I dug his grave with shovel so true, she wrapped herself in adultery no clue

What's that, she mumbled so low,

Nothing. Just another soul in the snow

Foreign, tasteful and loving misses, nights of nameless passion, I craved


Hunger, plague, and death were sneaking while angels of nowhere always peeking

My feet sank in dew, a bellow so true, my eyes longed for a spell in a grave

Is he your foe? Then He signed, no, just another soul in the snow

Eyes of murder, heart so thin, steps to stop, steps to begin


Babies sang thrice, Redbirds talked twice, and "she" lured with such nice eyes

My Buick! Oh, my Buick! Why did they rob me late at night?

I'm nothing to see, nothing to use, all I am is someone else's muse

What's his name, said Johnson Bedlow, with wages high and low

Sorry, sir, his gopher didn't know. Aww, he's just a soul in the snow

In final hour, I crawled the tower to where He had His Book


My legs were gone, my hands were bone, and my eyes, the colors seen shown

My breath now a number. My life now a slumber. I begged for a place. Just a place

I' m no king. I own no ring. I hunger for peace above and below

You see, all I am is just a soul in the snow

Dear writinglover,

A heartfelt thank you for your sweet input. You and your words mean so much to me and as for healing, I cannot truthfully say that I am on that path.

I was diagnosed with yet another incurable disease: Thrombosclosis, a disease that shuts-down the circulation in my lower legs and eventually it will eat its way to my heart and the results, I do not want to talk about them.

Enough about me.

I hope you and I stay in touch in the months and years ahead.

I love my followers.

Hi, lupine,

I sincerely appreciate and love you and your comments. This hub was indeed hard to do.

There are people like those in my hub that are near my hometown and our government officials seemingly do not care about them. That is what irritates me.

You keep in touch with me.

Peace.
