Life

DownUp 0

I awaken to a new dawn,
Creations beauty surrounds me,
The air embraces me,
The sky inspires me,
The sun illuminates me,
My inner energy bursts forth,
My life has purpose, meaning,
I carry hope,
I possess passion,
I have joy,
Love’s abundance is present,
I smile,
To this I promise,
To all I meet,
I exchange and pass life’s blessing.

A Strong Will

DownUp 0

My life has been hard,
and all my burdens great.
But I regret none of my choices,
I’ve made my own fate.
So take a look at my life,
and judge as you will.
God watches over me,
and cares for me still.
He blessed me with a child,
straight from heaven above.
With a spirit like an angel,
he fills my life with happiness and Love!

But jealously has created the harlots three,
The sloth, the addict, and the liar they be.
Pale skin hides they’re sullied souls,
with bodies like hags faces like ghouls!

Disguised as a friend the first did come,
the slovenly, the cruel, the downright scum!

A mans young life the second did take,
this foul addict, this thief, this snake!

Casting her foul shadow onto our lives,
the last one came using lies like knives!

But they harm only themselves’
with every evil stone they cast.
My foundations laid in brick,
and I have built it to last!

In the end it will be a simple mirror they face,
and see their lives empty, no honor or grace!
They never admit they’re own guilt you see,
but lie as they might they will NEVER be me!

My Nan

DownUp 0

The doctor saw my Nan today
And he made it clear
There’s no improvement, none at all
Does Nan even know I’m here?

As I sit close by her bed
Her eyes stare into space
Like windows with the curtains drawn
And pain shows in her face.

Some time ago when I was small
My Nan looked after me
A cuddle and elastoplast
When I had grazed my knee.

I really took so much for granted
My Nan for me was always there
Does she know how much I love her
Does she know how much I care.

She looks so tiny and so frail
When will the hurting cease
And so I pray both night and day
That she will soon find peace.

Suffering

DownUp 0

Do you wonder when you’re hurting
If it’s really all worthwhile
All that loving, caring, sharing
Just hoping for a little smile.

When you watch a loved one suffer
In constant pain, confusion too
Thinking back to all the good times
Knowing there’s nothing you can do.

Perhaps it’s better like a snail
To build a rock hard shell
To keep the pain and suffering out
But no, for we should tell

Our dear ones how we feel
To show we love and care
And even when they sometimes suffer
They know, for them you’re always there.

For if the clocks could turn back time
To good old days gone by
Wouldn’t life be so much better
No wonder we feel we want to cry.

A Special Star

DownUp 0

I looked towards the starlit sky,
Looking for the shiniest star,
One caught my eye, just over the horizon,
Very carefully, I place it close to my heart,
Every step I take, the star shines brightly,
Young and pulsating, it’s brightness grew,
One day, I finally understood;
Understood that this star was my love for you.

You know that I am not selfish,
After all, I was never asking you to be mine,
All I ask is that you grant me this one wish,
It is all I want, will you be my Valentine?

Would you hold it ?

DownUp 0

If I held out my hand,
Would you hold it?
If I hold out my arms to you,
Would you hold me?
If I called out your name,
Would you come running?
If I told you I loved you,
Would you say the same?

If I said I’d do anything for you,
Would you believe me?

If I told you I hated you,
Would you have ran?
If I told you to leave,
Would you have left?
If I pushed you away,
Would you have gone?

If I hadn’t lied to you, just so you could be safe,
Would you still be here with me?

If I called out your name one last time,
Would you still come running?
Or would you turn away from me,
Because I tried to protect you?

Are we friends or more than that?

DownUp 0

I had you once,
And I let you go.
Times were tough,
I said lets just move on.

I wanted to know,
If you cared enough about me.
To say don’t let me go,
Let’s get past this and be.

To tell me everything’s fine,
That they will get better.
I can’t get you off my mind.
So to let you know I wrote this letter.

So many words were said,
I listened to them all.
As I laid in my bed,
That’s when things started to fall.

I stayed up late at night,
Thinking about you.
You told me it’ll be alright,
And I believed you too.

Things began to get worse,
We started to fall.
I didn’t know what to do,
Or who to listen to after all.

I ended things,
After only a short time.
It happened so fast,
An now im so confused.

I hate that things ended,
I still want to be with you.
Maybe in time,
You’ll want me too.

I now realize,
Listening to people was wrong.
If things work out,
Then maybe we do belong.

If not then,
That’s fine too.
I hope we can still remain friends,
Hopefully things don’t change.
