If I fought fire with water?
Eventually I’d be steaming
If I matched fire with fire?
It’d destroy everything
If I should die, before I wake…
They would cut me up and throw my body to waste
Slash my remains with blades
Through my skin it penetrates
T.E.A.R.S ( Tragic Events Amass Relentless Stress)
Resembling rain descending drains in winter
Mine like a damp wall – with an internal manoeuvre
Sensation of a slave ankles bound together
Frustration of life, not getting better
When you won I was surprised
But did not celebrate
Because you’re still a politician at the end of the day
Famous for lies, painting a pretty picture in the war zone
They say ‘hold your head high’ but why?
We are all living in shame
How can I look to the sky?
I’ll focus on the drain
I wandered down to meet the sea,
To set my kindred spirit free,
I sat upon the golden shore,
A flock of seagulls swoop and soar.
it's not until memory drifts along,
carried by the gentle breeze
of a fading hurricane that once
wings flapping turbulence
I keep bitter words in my back pocket
My flick knife, just in case there they
stay never used in safe sound silent
place Just in
A Consideration of Life
Without negative thought, without thought of consequence, with simply a glance of the situation at hand, the blessing of life becomes but a burden to hold.
With a certainty of gloom, with an outlook so bleak, with the mists of time closing in, the hopelessness takes hold.
But for the eyes of the child, the love of those close, the ease of the passing would call.
As life reflects, as a story is told, a hopeful glint of sunlight shines through.
causality knows naught
A reason now,
causality knows naught.
Faith we shall,
though fate forgot.
