Man & Beast



Could demon and angel co-exist?

Does the wheat not grow with the tares?

Who would ever believe under a bed of roses was the home of all my fears?

Man and monster share the same form
Gravitating from an iceberg cold to a sea breeze warm.
Yet, in all of us, is that not at times the norm?

North is as close to south, as east is as far from west
And is it not that the one you hate at times becomes your love interest?
Doesn't the mother who hatched the egg
later push the bird from the nest?

Could the sun and rain share the sky?

Does not life and death lie in a trigger?

Who would ever believe that sweet grapes in time can taste bitter?

Michelle Borel Claim this poet

Proud to be from the beautiful twin isle of Trinidad and Tobago... One of my very first pieces was published when I was eight in one of Trinidad's daily newspapers. I believe that we must not bury our talents, but work on enhancing them. I started hosting shows at age eleven and by seventeen, I became a radio personality. Feel free to enjoy evenings with me from six to nine at www.1077musicforlife.com Together with that, I love the kitchen and my company Cookie Castle allows me to share the warmth and love I put into baking with others. Also, marketing seems to be another talent as I have held a regional position with an international brand regarding such a portfolio. However, I have saved the most important for the end of this bio - MY FAMILY :) I have three kids and I have been married now for nine years... Though on air I am known as Michelle Borel (maiden name), I take great pride in being Mrs. Thorpe! Peace and love to you and yours... Remember to put God first... Praise JAH and live!!! Would love to read my pieces live for you... You may contact me at 1(868)372-3877 or e-mail me at michelle_borel@hotmail.com more…
