The Champions Who Walked Among Us

Author Archive: patgarcia

Starting 2017 By Pat Garcia

It’s best to start out slow. Let everyone pass by you. Regard the scenery, Think! Examine the obstacles, Proof the ridges, Learn how to ride the wave And prepare yourself for the tide. — Always count your cost, Estimate time needed, Effort, Price, But don’t forget the rest zones, Everyone needs them, You also. — …

Shock by Pat Garcia

Shock shook the earth. At first, only tiny tremors, Politicians had ignored them. The media had made fun, Expounding their ignorance. But, the tremors became stronger. — What happened? Where did we go wrong? The ceiling is still in tact. The glass didn’t shatter, People can’t take a splitter as a souvenir, As some did …

Freedom by Pat Garcia

Freedom by Pat Garcia A strange word, FREEDOM. It beguiles, Deludes, Misleads, Encourages, Separates, Divides, Unites, And Heals. — In a world where acceptance rules, FREEDOM dwells; Understanding flourishes; Toleration becomes a border; Delusions vanish; Community evolves. — Freedom walks, In a world where acceptance rules,  And fear dissipates. Freedom speaks out, People listen and …

Work, A Poem by Pat Garcia

  WORK   The day ends. Work is undone, Not yet finished, It looms in the background, Waiting. Another day begins. Work is undone, No longer looming, But pressing, Demanding attention. Oh, the joy work fulfills or robs, The disappointment it brings, When overtime must be done, And work becomes the victor that kills love, …

Missing by Pat Garcia

                Some things get lost. Some simply misplaced. Some disappear into thin air, Only to reappear at the yard sale, Where items collected have been brought, And the number of years, Spent in one city, One house, One family, Become a fading nostalgic memory of what used to …
