Antithesis

And being me I plunged into the pool

I didn’t stop to think or make a plan

For I am the antithesis of cool

A really rather awkward sort of man

I’m not exactly archetypal geek

My brain is not so beautiful you see

And don’t expect some nerdish kind of chic

Banality epitomises me

Yet happily I swim among the sharks

Surviving without wing or need to pray

My motivation nothing more than larks

Though why it makes me laugh I cannot say

No evidence except my circumstance

But life is such merry little dance

War of Independence

Without you here I’ve finally become

The man who walks away not looking back

The two divide and I’m remainder one

The future parts repressive clouds of black

I ran until my very breath expired

Then took the time to find the man I am

For life had left me bruised and broken, tired

Reality was nothing but a sham

The war of independence over now

Republic not subjected to a king

Consider this my last and final bow

For you to me no longer mean a thing

I’m not confined I live without a plan

Except to be a free and happy man

Will

His smile it caught me mind it drew me in

Ideas profound that bubble to the top

Veneer with worry worn till paper thin

Yet in his eyes a hope that will not drop

So open as he talked of all he’d lost

The tears that glistened but were never shed

A warmth within that won’t allow the frost

The echo of so much he never said

I cannot right the wrong that he has seen

But he is more because what he knows

So many places we have never been

And hidden in the cracks a love it growsHe held my hand and everything was still

Our future is the everything we will

Testing Time

Snap

Something broke inside

Fear they cannot hide

Only for the ride

But

Now they need to speak

Answer theirs to seek

Into private peak

They

Took a little test

Putting minds at rest

Tidy lives were messed

Yet

Stranger turns to friend

Tale has happy end

Broke together mend

Love: For Sale

Honestly there’s nothing kept within

Window is the everything I own

Looking deep will not bear hidden fruit

Everything already has been shown

Wanting more the disappointed eye

Meeting then so subtle comes the drop

Two dimension not a fuller form

Every start is grinding to a stop

Superficial man I feel so plain

Flight was grounded yet I see you soar

Hero was another one than I

Less you didn’t want and he was more

Shop but no one ever comes to buy

Window stacked with offers cheap and high

Jasmine Tea

Take a glass of jasmine tea and sit with me a while

See the frown that’s on your face transform into a smile

Life can take us places that we never dreamed were true

When you need to feel at home I’ve time to share with you

Life is an adventure but when things are getting rough

Just remember gentle can be just strong as tough

Use your heart, engage your mind before you choose to fight

Just because someone is wrong does not give you the right

Child you are so lucky having everything you need

Choose the path of kindness and I know you will succeed

You will leave your teacher soon beneath the shady tree

But tell me of your hope and fears and drink some jasmine tea.
