Hope (Remove filter)

Believe...

We must never be ruled by our circumstances.
We must follow our hearts and follow our chances.
No matter how hopeless. No matter how late.
Know that we are special and we can become great.

We must also know that hope does exist.
So know that we are free and this will persist.
Take down those books from our mind's bookshelves
And ponder those wise words as we read to ourselves.

Whatever...

Eden

I found my bliss 

Heading south on the A23

She’s a rollerskate

He’s a magnet 

Like the easy way 

Water slides down your throat. 

 

Me, a pearl of existence 

Gently cooking in this black car 

Heat. From July. Discomfort 

In the way my baths

Are always stifling. 

 

A glissando of tyres 

Droning down to the coast 

Under a weatherless sheet 

Of baby blue...

The Garden

The barbs of your tongue

Cut me to shreds

Unpicking my mind's 

Most delicate threads 

 

So I weaved myself words

From the pit of my soul 

To replace all the light

And the joy you had stole

 

Then I ripped myself free

From your talons of spite

Spilling ink upon page

Under dawn's weary light

 

And I bled, intravenous 

Through roots of my mind 

Feedi...

Love

When you looked me in the eyes, I wanted to feel your love

To feel the love that you said, was gone

I wanted to believe with all my heart that you would come back...

I wanted to believe that I could be enough

I wanted to believe that we could grow together but the truth is, it was all an illusion created by a stubborn heart,

Instead, I let you close and you hurt me, broke me, and ra...

Anxiety...My Friend

As this feeling
I feel in my chest
Eats away
My soul
And the emotions
it produces
Coalesce
I stop to wonder
When will it go
Away
Anxiety 
Is my best friend
My closest enemy
Anxiety
Is there
For me
And asks one million
Questions
Placing un-needed
Doubt
Within my mind
Anxiety
Questions
The intentions
Of those around
Me
Axiety
My friend
Please let me be
I do not
Need you

Hey-ho!

Hey-ho

I wanna look out 

my window

I wanna go where 

my thoughts go

But I can't get out of 

my bed though

 

I'm lonely

A sad little 

one trick pony

Waiting for someone 

to phone me

To tell them this condition

don't own me

 

I dream about

Simply getting up 

and walking out

Seeing what this beautiful

world's about 

Filling my lungs and

To The Future

If you find yourself with awful luck.
And that in the deepest hole are firmly stuck.
If you feel from it you'll never rise,
That the world is cruel and harsh in your eyes.

If you feel there'll never be a tomorrow,
And you'll never leave your path of sorrow.
If you feel your life has no point or reason,
And it's loose ends will never find completion.

You must know that life is always ch...

The Sorrows

Its spine slithered, snake-like 

around the corpse of my soul

Her withered tongue extracting 

from life , what I had stole 

 

Come scream!

Come scream!

For the beast must be seen! 

Come swallow 

THE SORROW 

For there is 

no tomorrow !

 

Such a flaying shall occur

In the pits of our despair !

 

Creeping, seeping

Rotting eyes weeping!

Uppsala Cathedral '92

I.

I have no faith, yet
in this foreign church
I find solace,
sanctuary.

I never expected
to need such a place,
but I sought it out.

A stranger to its ways,
I sit in silence, alone.
Its echoing ambience
embraces me.

City noise and bluster
muffled by centuries-old stone;
it welcomes and warms.

A refuge, I rest:
No more voices.
I can breathe here.
I can be here.

Teacher

Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong

A teacher....

Teach your students colors,shapes, letters, numbers, teach them about life, and now keep them safe from guns

Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong, remember you are a teacher

Teach your students to not be afraid, yet in your heart you know the world is again...

Fingers Crossed.. a poem for our times

Fingers Crossed

The buds now open, sun dispels the dark

The nights of bat give way to morning lark.

And as we emerge, blinking, into the light,

Brim full with fright, and delight,

Apprehensive, yet pensive of all we have faced

And what may lie ahead, braced

Despite it all, against the odds

We hold hands aloft, with fingers crossed.

 

When threads seem thin which hold...

I think I need a jacket
It's getting very cold
I'll have a look online
It's very easy, so I'm told

I'm not sure that I like it
It feels like it's quite forced
As I swipe through all the options
But there's some I like of course

The first one was suitable,
The pockets just too shallow,
Number three felt like a winner,
Better suited to another fellow

I sometimes sit and...

Justice

Sometimes justice does not prevail,
And life becomes unfair.
Sometimes the hardest workers fail,
And hope turns to despair.

Sometimes we see the fat cats thrive,
And the little people do then suffer.
Sometimes the careless do survive,
While judicious lives do become tougher.

Sometimes punished are the good,
While the sinful are rewarded.
Sometimes the best are misunderstood
And the ...

Lost Love

To hold you in my arms one last time

To feel your touch even though I knew you weren’t really mine

To feel your lips touch mine and again feel your love 

Hoping, dreaming, wishing I could bring you back 

Hoping, dreaming, wishing to fix this shattered heart

But a touch, a kiss, my love wasn’t enough 

You’re not coming back 

You’ve chosen 

And it’s clear now

Your love is ...
