By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. – Oscar Wilde

Poetry

That’s Why…

“I want to keep you safe,

happy and feel your warmth when I catch you. That’s why…

Because I want to kiss your lips,

and remind you that I’m always here for you. That’s why…

Most importantly,

it’s because I love you.”

Wave

If we are still long enough,

we can see time pass by us.

We can wave and hope that,

it glances over long enough to wave back…


You

I didn’t fall in love with you,

I walked into love with you,

with my eyes wide open,

choosing to take every step along the way.

I do believe in fate and destiny.

But I also believe, we are only fated,

to do the things that we’d choose anyway.

And I’d choose you,

in a hundred lifetimes,

in a hundred worlds,

in any version of reality…

I’d find you and I’d choose you.


Brighter

Life is brighter on the other side,

away from all the fears and hurt inside.

You dragged me down but not no more,

you’ve moved on to the person you were before.

All the hate and pain inside,

has disappeared in the morning light.

Today it seems is a brand new day,

when you took all the pain away.


Past and Future

Past is past, you leave it behind.

All that pain and anger inside.

A smile on your face is all it takes,

to make a start to a brand new day.

With your head held high, you storm on.

Away from all the bad times you’ve been going through.

They’re gone now so it’s all okay,

you’re free to be anything you could ever dream.

So take the leap, you might just make it….


My Intentions

If you could look into my eyes,

Whilst you stand in-front of me.

Tell me, am I too weak to see?

Broken down, brittle when I speak.

You know not of my pain, my fear, my hate,

It’s easier to protect you from my fate.

You know not of my love,

But I care for you,

You should know my intentions were always true.

You are my love and my light,

My inspiration, that’s by my side.

I never meant to hurt you,

But my intentions were always true.


As you lay to Rest

Laid there in silence,

where you are laid to rest.

As flowers are placed upon your chest.

So suddenly you left,

not a whisper goodbye or less.

A life well lived most would say,

a happy chappy, strolling through life’s sinful grace.

You’re home now where you belong,

where heaven plays that sweet sounding song.

The gates are open, waiting for you to enter,

we will always miss you, our faithful little treasure.

As we say goodbye, tears may be shed,

as we lay you down to rest.
