Gratitude (Remove filter)
When I was 17, I'd met a man,
He'd asked me the reason for my happiness.
When I'd said it, he'd chuckled and replied bluntly
That he was truly happy for me and her.
He’d also apologized for the unruly chuckle.
Moments before signing-off, he'd left a letter,
A one-liner, down my memory-mail-box.
He'd written – ‘See you down the solitary lane.’
And I'd kind-fully allowed t...

Gracious as her title
God Blessed the earth with this noble warrior by name
Like oxygen to survive she is vital
Unique lady unlike any other
For Jane we are blessed Bright mother
Her heart dances and sings
Fine cut like a diamond
As golden as her rings
This lady is flamboyant as true as her beauty
She oozes style
Eyes sparkling like stars I see her soul in her smile
She cares and loves

Give the glass another glance.
Is the glass half full . I ask every day. Was it ever full. Or am I looking askance.
What is the running all about. Days turn to years. The running looks like a stationary dance.
Life says stop running. Appreciate my beauty. Like you used to do once.
Break the shackles. Look at the glass. It was always full. Give yourself one more chance.
For, in life...

No sirens less police
Less street violence
Growing Nature clear sky's less pollution
One year later vaccine..Solution
And we're back again noises are louder
Pubs are open Alcohol white powder
Fights with knives,battered citizens not just wives
Schools back ..crowded street
Complaining teachers email repeat
Back to normal yeah...

Give Praise to the world,
To all those who'd been here before
Who made this world so much more
Than it had been.
For each tiny change,
If it took years, months or days,
Was all part of the way
From nothing to everything,
So let's Give Praise to the world,
To all those who'd been here before
And maybe do one thing more
Because we share their dream
To make this world a better pla...

Our Post people have connected us,
Through toil and love and loss,
Carrier Pigeons, magical storks
Delivering life to waiting Mums
Telegram boys of Shakespeare plays
Connecting lovers lost,
War-winning, code breaking messages
Relics of a past,
Suddenly more important,
Suddenly at all costs,
Through the middle of this mess
In the middle of our chaos...

In the shadow of sleeping Kings,
soldiers, and poets,
comes another battlefield day,
man against man, invisible wars,
hell’s fury unleashed among trees.
Yet, upon the rocky shore,
angels dance and sing,
reminding us there is something more
Beauty glints among broken things.
Hope is on the horizon.
So on these solemn days,
let us find something...

She wondered into his place of work
because she thought she was loosing her head
When approached by him she lost herself,
her wits and her heart instead
She found her will to try,
emotions she had lost,
physical urges she thought she had shed
The sight and sound of him,
the insight he shared,
her soul he fed
Cautiously she indulged,
dependency has only ever bro...

I lost all control
Crossed the threshold
My tears too excruciating to hold
I prayed earnestly to be released from the pyre
I saw you and I continued to burn
Only now, I burned also with desire
Fervent interest realized
The voodoo you do, mesmerized
Oh, what power you weild!
Desperately I yearn to yeild

The future unknown yet frightful
A familiar face in the crowd
So warm, inviting and sweet...
Everything makes sense again
Hope is reignited
Fear, is once again
For the time being

Deceit tells us: what they have is better than ours
So now we wrestle with discontent
Desiring something that was never our own
Blessings become blurred
When seen through the lens of another
Our sight diminishes
With each gaze and long lusting look
That will never be
Scrolling through standards not set in stone

I won't ever let a sun to set in the horizon: GRATITUDE
who didn't let me fly with an evil bird,
to set me an example of sacrifice and care,
to teach me a lot in no words,
to make me a reality in the world,
to shape a pot out of a wet clay dust,
to make my any anguish to rest,

When I think of you
And all you have done
My heart is full of joy
That it pours out
When I think about where I was
And where I am now
My mouth is full of songs
No man can hold me down
When I think of your love
That liquid love
My eyes are full of tears
A fountain that won’t dry out
When I think of your peace
That garrisons my heart
All my fears fade away
Like a distant memory

To all you writers and poets out there.
Thank you for your words of courage,
words of truth,
words of encouragement
Thank you for your solidarity,
for lifting us up.
Thank you for breaking ground,
cutting the edge,
standing on that soapbox
with daring and drive,
having the nerve to shout out
what many ...
