Unspoken Word

So here I am again, I always find the time to rhyme

Although I’m rather busy under pressure every day

I like to stop and think and find composure in my thought

For every now and then I’ve something meaningful to say

Today however, I am simply putting down a verse

The rhythm and a rhyming pattern take me from the day

A moment that is mine, a gift I’ve given to myself

But in the end I share my words to see what you might say

Sometimes I think I’m brave but often I am just a fool

Who thinks that fourteen syllables when placed upon a line

Are poetry, when really all they are are bites of sound

And if they are not spoken out my words dissolve in time

So reader read aloud and save these lines from fate obscure

For verses left unspoken will be thoughts and nothing more

Conscious Beam

So many are not happy with their lot
This life on darkened roads you did not choose
Bemoaning everything that you are not
Will drive you a place where you will lose
Its good to make some changes, take control
Just look within and if by chance you find
That you are not too happy with your soul
Then search until your psyche's realigned
For what you seek is concrete, not a dream
It lives within if you decide to see
So make your inner eye a conscious beam
A torch along the path to who you'll be
And don't give up when frightened and alone
The light of love you shine will guide you home

The Guardian

If you can see the truth within the anger
If you can look at death and sense no fear
If you can see the dignity in labour
And know the reason each of us is here
If you can stop the pain and bring back laughter
If you can open hearts that long have shut
If you believe in happy ever after
And know the cards were never fairly cut
If you can bring some peace when hearts are racing
If you can whisper magic words in rhyme
Then you could the man the world is seeking
Who knows that love can stand the force of time
So take us from today into tomorrow
The guardian whose honour is a shield
Jerusalem rebuilt without the sorrow
Divided people come together healed

Samaritan

Never chosen
Always last
Uninvited
Never asked
Made me bitter
You’re so sweet
Got the whole world
At your feet 
Never smiling
Wear a frown
You ascend as
I fall down 
Wish that I was
Light and gay
Bruised and battered
Born this way
See you staring
Clouded eyes
Hand of friendship
Help me rise
Different people
Human kind
Help your neighbour
Love is blind
I was chosen
Only one
Turned my face to
See the sun

Telling Time

I’m half past nearly over you 

And then you reappear 

Despite the fact that we are through

I’m happy when you’re near 

If I could turn back time with you 

I’d do it all again 

But you’re a maybe baby if 

When what I need’s a when

So half past nearly over you 

And soon my clock will chime 

And all that you were once to me 

Will be some other time 

Humanity

We each of us are something quite unique
Cannot be found in any other place
So I might be exactly what you seek
To put that fallen smile back on your face
So talk with me a while and take your time
Unburden woes that stop you living dreams
To need a helping hand is not a crime
And things are never bad as they might seem
My friend can I confess if you need me
You give me purpose make me feel alive
So lean on me my help is given free
In helping you I help myself to thrive
I need you most when you think you need me
This give and take is called humanity
