Kenneth E. Bedell
Have ne'er I felt this pain before, of a heart so unfree.
I feel this ravaging pang, in the pit of my soul,
Who shall take this half man, and turn him into whole?
A lady fair doth wait for me, be it near or distant shore,
My love is near I feel it, a thousands stones, an inch you see,
Kenneth E. Bedell was born and raised in Bay City, Michigan and via the military, came to live in Freehold, New Jersey. He is married, has two grown children and one grandchild. He started writing as a hobby in his freshman year of high school and is now fifty years old.
He writes mostly for his own entertainment and has rarely allowed any of his works to be seen. He recently started taking writing seriously.
His poetry ranges from romance to military life and he is currently working on a book about a young farm boy who joins the military during the height of Viet Nam. The book goes on to show his maturing, fears and real life lessons that war brought to him.
Mr. Bedell says, "My hope is that my writings can change my fellow man for the better."
