Waste no time
Open your mind
Now is always the moment
Do not hesitate, investigate
Every second is new
Resplendent in its ability to inspire curiosity

Behaving in a manner true to oneself
Even if no one else approves
In this life, one thing is certain
No one can really ever walk in your shoes
Great are the mysteries before us
Having bled and willing to bleed
Unleashing it all in a chorus
Music for all who have ears
Actions will always speak louder
No more shall I live in...

Chanting prayers, dreaming of ships just beyond the horizon,
Another day, another hour, just another minute he wishes to live.
No other choice but one, no other food, no other flesh but his own.
No other way to feed his unfortunate child.
In the middle of nowhere, on this desolate rock, he cut his upper arm.
Blood, not a drop allowed to waste, meat, sickening yet juicy sweet...

Ruthless rivals ramble raw rubbish; raving, ranting, rotting. Rage rage rage!
Anonymous, apathetic anguished alone; awaiting answers, Rage rage rage!
Gleeful, glorified greedy geniuses generating glad-gospels, Rage rage rage!
Evil egomaniacs' endless embellished epics echo eternally, Rage rage rage!

Bipolar one disorder. I did not flinch. Warm and genuine, I liked him right away.
Open mike night. He played guitar. Part of the regular crowd. I had seen him many times, always with a smile.
Beer was good and we talked over the music. It was only our second meeting, yet the conversation flowed with ease. Relaxed and natural.
Been a lawyer he had. But not the "good kind" and he gave m...

Sometimes sweet, sometimes sour
Heart is put into everything
I try to be a good person
Really love my family
Lets things pile up
Everyday struggles with depression
Yet keep trying

Hope is like
A bird that
Perches in the soul.
Yearning for adventure.

Dr Johnson's work of art
Inspired some to look up 'fart'
Caused others though to search with ease
Thoughtful terms like 'whiffy breeze'
In those great enlightened days
One could get folk to mend their ways
Now alas, it's plain to see
All too many are stuck, like me
Rambling through a short word stock
Yet still his book thwarts writers block

Peace and dialogue are rejected
Anarchy with chaos breeds and
No-one is safe from the claws of fear
Demons with devilish or "divine" intentions
Excrete their venom, make their motives clear
Milton gave us the word in Paradise Lost, an
Odious capital in the midst of Hell
Nearing beauty in its simple concept, but how to fight it?
I cannot tell, there's
Unease and violence in the maelstrom, ...

Forever in your eyes
On the darkness of June
Reserved for a love
Ever fleeting so soon
Valuable time,leaving us fast
Exacting us both,into the past
Reserving a night,for heavenly bliss
Into our last night,into our last kiss
Neither one of us knew,nor had a clue
Years are all we had,and would have to do
On forever love,we put up a fight
Usually people with cancer.still have a life

Scarcely have I thought to act in good time,
Challenging for me to remember things.
All that information lost from my prime,
Trust my memory to glide off on wings!
Those commodities I forgot to buy
Especially at supermarket stores,
Reaching home without them making me sigh
Because I have to go straight back outdoors.
Reality check comes when I appear
At venues having lef...

Lay flat and spun together you’ve always run a town,
each part is party to the next and grown
separately we conflict and seethe from
it and sneer from it, no one is happy in slavery
wouldn’t talking be a step, food too and
work unites us, it’s not them making us toil
we all carry the can and mustn’t
need to chase our own tale to cause blame
