Poetry

Below are some of my recent attempts. I would love to hear your thoughts...

Arrogance met Ignorance

Arrogance and ignorance met one day
They hit it off straight away
Joined together by narrow ways
The best of friends they became.

But this is a warning, to all who read
For those who follow, where these two lead
To think you’re greater than all the others
And too narrow minded to think or bother
All alone you will be
Only negativity, you will see.

For these two partners are born in dark
No light will shine within their hearts
We are born, all the same
A blank canvas to paint in our own way
Bright colours and contrast will enrich our souls
But paint in dark, and let them grow
Will be the downfall of us all

Justice & Happiness

In life, people come and go
Some will stay, some won’t
Some leave a positive mark
That lifts a smile, when you think of them

Others leave a different mark
The purpose of their actions unclear
Leaving a shadow on your time together
That brings sadness to thoughts of them

More will come, more will go
So don’t let the negative darken your soul
Treat others how you'd like to be treated
Remain true to your heart, faith & goals
Don’t leave your negative print behind
Always depart with a fond goodbye

For this is the way to happiness
Forget the bad and remember the good
Those who wrong you will suffer their fate
As you move off with a smile on your face

Lost

I seek you out in the dark light
Lost to me without foresight
For I’m alone in this world
As others grow, I still yearn

The trick of a dream tortures me
A glimpse of what will never be
Yet still I rise to each new day
Alone and empty in every way

Hope has left this heart of mine
Replaced instead by twisted vine
Wrapping around my heartless core
Squeezing life, breath and soul

Yet in the darkest corner, a light
Almost extinguished and out of sight
Fighting back against the dark
All it needs is a small spark…

My Sweet Gemini

I can see you now
Playing in the sun
Sisters for life
A life not yet begun

Will I meet you?
I still don’t know
I hold you in my heart
And hope it is so

For now my precious
Sleep well in peace
Until the day
We can finally meet

I'm Not Perfect

I’m not perfect
I don’t always make the right choices
My body is not perfect
But I am happy in my own skin

I’m not perfect
I don’t turn heads in the street
My attitude is not always perfect
But I work hard and try

I am not perfect
I sometimes make mistakes
My life is not perfect
But I am grateful for all that it is
