Hi ladies and gents, I am Tj. A bit about me, hmmm, here go's.... I started writing about 3 years ago or so. This is the first time I have used a site to get my work "out there", as they say. I write rhyming poetry. I absolutely love writing, i find it a real release, and, a very positive way to express myself. I hope you all enjoy what I have to offer with my writing.


Smiling Through Sunshine Rain .............................. My heart is broken, there's sadness in my soul, my spirit is lost, i really am less than whole. With a weakness of mind, and judgement so poor, i'm falling apart inside, of that i'm sure. Is it an illusion, as inside i scream, nobody can hear me, or so it would seem. Crying out for help, no-one answers my call, it gets worse everyday, with the farther i fall. With heart that is heavy, and so full of pain, i carry on regardless, smiling through sunshine rain.

Like you, I have a family army connection.
My great-grandfather was a master gunner with
Queen Victoria's army - with service in China.
My father was a young officer in WW1 France and
the Italian Front, and was in uniform again on the home front in WW2.
A maternal uncle was killed in action in France
in 1916, and a first cousin once removed (an army lawyer) was shot down in front of his wife by the IRA during the original Anglo-Irish War back in
the early 1920s (the original Bloody Sunday).
My own brother served with the Royal Engineers in locations as diverse as Cyprus, Kenya and Borneo,
before retiring to become an instructor (later its
manager) of the ski centre in Aldershot prior to
final retirement.
The army in particular has a habit of connecting families, doesn't it?
Best wishes for your work on WOL and elsewhere.

Hiya Thomas
thanks for your kind comments on 'full contact' - i'm a big fan of rugby league and it is, indeed, both graceful and powerful - glad you liked the attempt to bring this across in the poem

Many thanks for your comment on the Devils Box. It originally started off as a song lyric for a novel I was writing, but realised it would work better as a poetry piece, with a few choice alterations. Anyway keep on writing and cheers
