deprived?

at times

life becomes 

that empty glass

fractured in the heat

waiting below a tap 

not connected

to a water source

before 

rain 

pours

Fever of silence

They all turn into madness.

Fear, the poison, injected too often.

A vaccination to prevent you from optimism,

from being an individual,

from the hope you kept deep inside.

You are infected with gloomy thoughts and panic feelings,

a fever of silence.

Only your own mind can set you free,

let you heal and open your eyes for beauty, kindness

and the hidden truth.

Antigen

 

He knocked at the door

Shouting ‘let me in!’

Tempting us to go out

With his whisky and gin

He hid around corners

Under tables and chairs

Trying his best

To catch us unawares

 

He was sitting on benches

Where others had sat

He was on garden fences

Where we’d stop for a chat

He was hanging around

Tesco trolly parks

He was all over door han...

NHS Workers

All remember and do not forget 
Those to whom we owe our greatest debt. 
They help us when we are in distress; 
It is all of those who work for the NHS.

Around the clock they are always there, 
And all this time they surely care. 
Though it is something that we just expect 
From those who deserve more respect.

Each worker endlessly strives 
To cure and save all of our lives. 
So sure...

Moving Forwards

If we find ourselves endlessly struggling,
And with many problems we are juggling.
If we become lost or should we suffer,
There is but one way to become tougher.

We must pull together and unite.
We must all stand up for what is right.
We must be strong. We must be brave,
And not be scared or be afraid.

We must try to see the light ahead
Without despair but with hope instead.
So don't...

Ghost spring

Ghostly creatures.
Distance, restriction,
Non existing life.
I miss deep kisses
And hands on my body.
I miss warm words
And expression.
Nature goes on,
Blossoming in competition,
Nurture me with sunny spells
On empty train stations. 
Spring in my heart, 
But not in other's hearts. 
I want to explode, 
So full of life. 
Blow all the ghosts away, 
Past shadows of the winter. 
Fearfu...

On the Up

However bad life may become.
Whatever problems you must face.
However many enemies you that make.
How many times you fall from grace.

However hopeless you may feel.
However deep seems your despair.
However cruel this world appears
And when all things seem so unfair.

Know that life can turn around.
And a new dawn will come about.
So however dark your well of fear,
Know you'll find yo...

Last night, through the window

Last Night, through the Window

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard a train;

But I am far from the railway.

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard a plane;

But I am far from the airport.

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard a bus;

But I am far from the road.

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard an owl;

But I am far from the woods.

Hard

It is hard having faith

When you feel so much pain

It is hard to obey when you feel so betrayed

It is hard to smile and put on your pretty face

When your whole world has seems to have crumbled

But then that voice comes back to you and says , "Look how far you've come, look how strong you are!"

The voice tells you everything is going to be just fine

You breathe, close your eyes...

Phoenix

I wish i were braver. More like everything you deserve. 
Wouldn't inflict my self on anyone. Nothing more cruel i've always thought.
I can't change the past and there's too much of it. 
I see the heart of you, clearer than the things you want me to. 
I dont see the rules to the games you play, and don't know why you play them anyway.
Hear this echo fade away, flickering to the tunes you play.

There Isn't A Need

Bandages constantly being placed,

Straight onto those voids that were caused

By someone who had no right to harm.

 

Wrap, tape, cry.

That's your pattern each night, isn't it?

When you weep because of your craving for love.

 

You do not understand it yet

But you do not require this person in your life.

Yesterday's emotions need to be wiped clean.

 

We are the uni...

To the Desperate Disparate

For the desperate disparate
All I am
since before i  heard the tigerpig, no thought no time
When i stop i am gone
Ever as now
A silent scream rising like the firefawn
Existing only when the wind blows
Moss beneath my toes on the old stones
In sunlight through stained glass
The echo of living through falling lashes
Alive for one timeless moment
Hoping to smell poplars through the pine

Underdogs

We must champion the underdogs. 
We must support the poor and weak. 
We must all fight along the side of those 
Whose hope and luck seemed bleak.

We must not not give up nor give in, 
Till we defeat those who taunt and boast. 
For the underdogs - they are the ones 
Who need our help the most.

We must conquer all the giants. 
We must all be brave and strong. 
We must all stand up for ...

Elation

Often, during rare nights of tumultuous sleep,

I imagine happenings not yet bestowed upon me,

With which such feelings of elation accompany,

Because, at long last,

I have found her,

And she has found me

A Better World

We should all feel safe when in the street.
Wherever we may go and whoever we meet.
And if there's one thing that should be clear,
We should not go outside while we live in fear.

Yes, all the people have the right
To live in peace and without a fight.
And it is our right to go out somewhere
To feel secure and free of care.

And I do hope to have an expectation
That people shall have mo...

Still here

Today is not over yet,

Which means yesterday may have been the hardest day of your life,

As if you were driving down a never-ending dead end, stuck in reverse;

But you are still here.

 

You can’t recall the time your mother held you out of the bedroom window,

The blaze within threatening to scorch you, your cradle and home,

The scent of smoke on your baby clothes has long sinc...

it was me

the devil sat on my shoulder today and asked me why Ichanged, why I acted this way. Honestly, I replied, Im tired of the anger. Looking back at the withdrawn girl, shes a stranger. Im deserving of a willing personality, instead of wallowing in my own self-pity. She asked me dont you miss the lust, disagreeing id rather involve myself in a way of trust. Greedy the serpent showed disrespect. With my...

A Thousand Years of Peace

I used to think it would be an honor 
to usher in a thousand years of peace,
a willing martyr to stop senseless suffering, 
but I had no idea of the atrocities 
that would ensue between men,
or the loss of innocent children 
that we would witness with despair 
and helplessness. 

Come now Lord, end the madness, 
flood evil with love,
make our planet a peaceful place, 
before all hope i...
