Conquer

Blue was clouded

Muddied up

Shine became so matt

View was shrouded

Covered up

World so sudden flat

Space not crowded

Emptied out

Nothing near or far

Yet some how did

Conquer doubt

Wished upon a star

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

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.

Corrugation

The rain on corrugation

The heat within the damp

A night without sedation

The poet and his lamp

The dawn is soon arising

Another broken day

These words please try for sizing

And walk with me a way

My night is ever sleepless

The rain it never stops

I scratch all of my secrets

Until the pen is dropped

Angel

You enter in where eagles fear

My agent truth or dare

A shaken stirred and bottles spun

And we are god knows where

I’m taking down the lines behind

For you are at the front

And what is fair in loving wars

When none is innocent

So leave me in the lurching sea

Deserted by your shore

For better is the worst of times

When wisdom wants for more

11:46

When sitting on a platform for the train that didn’t come

Alone as all the travellers abandoning their hope

I kept my faith in time and hoped the tables might yet turn

A safety net is nothing more than knotted bits of rope

Salvation came my way arrived 11:46

I climbed aboard not caring what the destination be

The journey worth the wait so unexpectedly arrived

I travelled into you a new exciting place to be

So catch the train or miss the bus but never lose the faith

The journey will be awesome if you just allow the ride

And everything will be if you allow yourself a breath

There really isn’t anything you can’t take in your stride

I’m sitting on a platform but no longer wait alone

For you are here and you is where I choose to make my home
