Beneath These Murky WatersA burnt wasteland
Glistens before me
My head above
Two feet below
I inch forward
The landscape shifts
The landscape shifts
Now every step
An obscure risk
These murky waters
While The Dust SettlesThere is always a trial
When dust takes flight
The common man's plight
For parched are the lips
And stale is the bread
And faint is the voice
With which secrets are shared
There's nothing like idleness
To make a tongue wag
Till nought is a mystery
And all is commotion
While the dust settles.
Today you mock me,
Staring at me in a grey demeanour
Pelting my frame with your stones
Today you honour me,
Showering me in a wet confetti
Laughing and crying like a drain
Today you comfort me,
Soothing me gently with easy breezes
Lulling me gently to sleep
Today you berate me,
Stormy and wild as they come
Howling your passionate fury
Someday you'll leave me
Taking your whims to some other lad
Leaving me uncertain;
Heart BurstI have gone and come so many times
The fun is gone like sound from mimes
Wind from chimes,
And rhyme from rhymes
For love is not about
Or climaxing at
The question becomes what comes next?
An angry text?
An empty bed to find no rest?
If none of these appeal, then first
Search for one who makes your heart burst.
Like a CocktailWrite me a cocktail
Make it nice and strong
Help me to forget
How my life has gone wrong
Put it in a shaker
Shake it up good
Yes, I'll have that on the rocks
'Cause life is never smooth
Now pour it out gently
Don't spill a drop
I need to savour every moment
And every plop
For like a cocktail
Life is mixed up
And I want to believe
That at the end, I'll take a sip
Raise my glass
And I'll be pleased.
Sometimes...Sometimes, a heart must be broken.
Sometimes, harsh words must be spoken.
Sometimes, from dreams we are woken
To find life's not a-jokin'.
Sometimes, our choices are bad.
Sometimes, we lose what we had.
Sometimes, while we are sad
We forget how to be glad
Yet sometimes, after we've fussed
Sometimes, despite the cost
Sometimes, even when lost
We find solace and trust
And sometimes, grey skies do turn blue
Sometimes, we can start anew
Sometimes, our dreams will come true
Yes.. sometimes, even for you
So when there are signs
That you've come on hard times
Hold these words in your minds
Because sometimes... sometimes...
Happy Howloween!In fevered pitch
I groan and twitch
As pain bestrides
My body's width
With maw outstretched
I yowl and wretch
A grizzly sight
A sickening stench
Then burning rage,
My mind: deranged!
The final stage;
A beastly being
A moonlit scene...
Say, what am I,
Smoker's RebuffI knew a bloke
Who loved to smoke
His throat was black as death
He was told
His life was sold
For less than it was worth
To this he said
Let's not pretend
I know how I will die
But ye who hold fast to the last will you ever know why?
Said the Politician to His DaughterThe world of politics my dear,
Is a dog eat dog world.
A rat race in a nest of vipers
For the slow, we toll the bell.
You'll be a fish out of water
Jumping into a different kettle of fish
Take this advice my dear daughter
If you don't have a death wish
You must be a wolf in sheep's clothing
And must never bark up the wrong tree
Your plans must be dark horses
If they are to become policy
Beware of the elephant in the room
And the gift horse, as a matter of fact
Because even our Kangaroo courts
Know just how to skin a cat
We are lions led by donkeys
Who all spew weasel words
It's a dog and pony show, child
This false game of shepherds
So if you want to be voted in
Be sure to flog all the dead horses
Cast your pearls before swine
Lend rabbit ears, to mice' voices
It's an animal kingdom out there
Take no prisoners if you can
For such is the place where hatched
Are the best laid plans of mice and man
Return To MeReturn To Me
The wind sang through the leaves, but I did not hear your voice.
The wheat flowed under my hands, but I did not feel your touch.
The morning dew rested on my lips, but I did not feel your kiss.
The sun lighted upon my face,
but I did not feel your presence.
Oh, my love where have you gone.
I searched for you in the mountains and I searched the fields,
I searched for you in the valleys but they did not yield.
My eyes are run full with tears,
and the cry of my voice you can not hear.
Oh, my love, where have you gone.
I seeked you night and day,
but only in my heart did you stay.
If only I heard your voice,
my heart would return from sorrow and my tears would turn to joy.

TTruly has he spoken in his word,
Tested the commands that we have heard.
Thank the Lord for wrath and mercy both,
Thank the Lord for pruning and for growth.
Tread upon the path that He has set:
Time is his. Why hold onto regret?
Trust in Him whose walk has never slipped;
Take His grace, and by it be equipped.
Mr Mourner and The World BeyondMr Mourner sees the world.
Mr Mourner's stomach curls.
Mr Mourner takes the rope
and weaves a stronger bond of hope.
Mr Mourner has a vision.
Mr Scorner scorns derision.
Mr Mourner wants to know
why other mourners won't let go.
Mr Mourner sees the world.
Mr Mourner's rope unfurls.
Mr Mourner says "hold on,
I'll take you to the world beyond."
Until He ComesThe second coming
Is not a warning
To dwell upon
Until His coming
Shall we be waiting?
Our Lord's return!?
Our task is given!
It has been written!
We have a mission!
That must be done!
To shine our light
Make the world bright
Present this sight
As his welcome
For when Christ cometh
Though no man knoweth
In faith we soweth
We faithful ones
Think not of when
Think not of where
We must prepare
Until He comes
Keep in Touch!
