Heartbreaking

I hope there is a Heaven,
With someone waiting there.
Where fear doesn't live,
And there's only love to share.

I hope there's someone's arms,
To wrap around you all.
That wash away the knowledge,
Of the day that you did fall.

I hope...

Grounding

You're too alive in there, as you sleep,
facing shadows in the night.
Retreating you scream but no sound escapes.
You won't give up the fight.

They taunt you to forsake your peace,
For their own emptiness.

Gathering your ministering...

Broken Bridges

Downward thoughts
As they fall
Infrastructure of the mind
Can we rebuild
Our souls that were born
Taken from the hands
Meant to be one
Broken bridges
Rotten wood and mold
The bridge across
Is a long one
Blame history to correct
The present
Put a...

Transformation

When the pains that come up, that ache deep inside
when feelings of dread greeting each morning abide,
When the fear of the future so pertinent and seemingly true
the fear of something void of its own being,...

Thorns of Love

As I contemplate this rose
I think of your beauty.
What a closeness
What a likeness
You have your thorns
As does everyone
But despite them
I hold you tighter
Blood dripping from my...

The Miracle of Morning

I thought I’d awaken to a world in mourning.
Heavy clouds crowding, a society storming.
But there’s something different on this golden morning.
Something magical in the sunlight, wide and...

Reason, Season, or Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason,
A season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will
Know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a
REASON, it is usually to meet a
Need you have expressed. They have come to...

Song of Myself from Leaves of Grass

1
I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

I loafe and invite my soul,
I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer...

Poem no.4

What's the point of it all,
She despaired.
What's the meaning of life?
She thought she had it figured you see,
So beyond her years and...

Poetry in the Time of Corona

Hungryyy, he says.
My morning alarm.
I blink sleepily to three more
crowded on the bed.
One falls off
and I hoist her up again
whilst bringing newborn...

Sarah Everard

Although the night is dark,
it isn't very late.
I'm sure it's safe to walk,
I'm not far from my estate.
I shall listen to my music,
As I walk down by the sea,
I'm sure that I'll be safe,
No one will be watching me.
Im looking forward to my...

Heartfelt

I have never lost a child but I often wonder how anybody copes who has.
This statue is a representation of how it must feel to be a bereaved parent.
The words are how I can only imagine how it would feel.
I woke up from my sleep this morning
Which...

Seated ❤️

Do not look at me with sorrow,
Simply because I sit alone.
It is a choice I chose to make
To compose the shivers from my bone.
Do not look at this with pity,
As it was what I chose to do.
It was Philips place to be,
I wanted to show that to...

Gone

Tear-filled,
I gaze at you.
Beauty-full child.
Unknowingly
You have become
Sad providence's
New sound.
Existential wonder,
Innocent eyes.
Questioning hearts
Needing...
