Please Explain (Part 2)

Please Explain (Part 2) short poem

I am me
It’s self-explained
My purpose in life
A tedious game

I came from within
And I go where I must
My life will soon end
As it started in dust

Space is eternal
And teeming with life
But that’s not been proved
I’ll let you decide

Rest a while…
Sit back and smile…

Love is a feeling
Of warmth and content
A feeling that some
Of the poor souls resent

Pain is a feeling
But joy it is not
A burn on the palm
From a coal so hot

Rest a while…
Sit back and smile…

You are you
Explain it yourself
As tall as a mountain
As small as an elf

A friend is most welcome
To join in the song
A foe is not wanted
And doesn’t belong

Memories are a way
Of reliving the past
For moments too short
They don’t seem to last

Rest a while…
Sit back and smile…

Time has passed
You watched it go by
It’s amazing to see
Just how it can fly

Strength is a force
Which we all possess
The amount that you use
Is yours to impress

No-one is stronger
For we all have a weakness
Used the right way
And it’s the end of your day

Rest a while…
Sit back and smile…

The ones who take
Are the lost and needy
But some still abuse
For they’re just too greedy

Nothings worth taking
When put to the test
And a price can’t be placed
On the things we love best

So take this and heed
The message they read
Read between the lines
The solutions entwine

Sonnet #2: Hot, New Summer Day sonnet poems

’tis a playing field for many kinds out in the arena, to discern the companionship of the puissant sun ’tis a hot, new summer day , blithe and sound maketh thou run, run, run… syrupy voice of nightingale, fills candied

Lonely Planet: Part Three

Lonely Planet: Part Three long poem

11 There is living after death, there is death before life, Ordinary living which is in scrambles of destituteness, Destituteness of idealism, of knowledge meaningful, of utter candidness. Dull realities of weeds, weeds of rampant ignorance, averment Of void words,

Diamond In The Swamp: Pt. 2 short poem

From the darkened waters where for ages they have roamed and toiled the fishermen, bobbing in their canoes with the rippling silent ocean waves, looked at the rays from the massive concrete superstructure dangling overhead it was like the heavens

Youth – Part 2 short poem

Life’s all phases are boredom Except the youth – the handsome. The only stage full of chasm Is none than of Soldier’s column. Here we are full of sound strum Which separate us from scum. Our experience is a bit
