One Way Street

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate it.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything due to a family bereavement but it feels like the time is right to post my latest poem.

It’s called One Way Street, it’s written under the premise that our lives follow a one way street and that once you’re on that one way street there is no going back…only forward so we should make the most of all the connections that we make in life.

I hope you like it.

One Way Street

Life is a one way street
Connection made with people we meet
Things we do, things we say
Connections made every day

The randomness of life’s events
Connections made are on rent
Life’s events come and go
Connections that we reap and sow

Through the streets of life
Connections made with husbands and wives
Though the street won’t be straight
Connections are what it takes

Sometimes high and sometimes low
Connections that stay and some that go
Red lights and green
Connections felt and some seen

Roundabouts
Connections to shout about
Sometimes the road will be lit
Connections that just seem to fit

The road goes forward and not back
Connections so strong but still crack
We travel the road until the light shines red
Connections made that last a lifetime in your heart and in your head.

Thank You

Keep On

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are well today, it’s a beautiful Monday morning here in Glasgow, cold but beautiful.

Thank you for checking out my blog, I appreciate it.

I’ve posted below a short poem that I wrote recently called ‘Keep On’, it’s about the times when you think you can’t go on any further, when you can’t see the light of hope…you know what I mean, we’ve been there, right?

Anyway, it’s just a short one, I hope you like it, and again thanks for checking it out.

Keep On

When you’re in darkness, look for the light
When you’re down, find the fight
When you can’t see, open your eyes
Then you’ll see all the reasons to be alive.

Keep on keeping on.

Thanks

A Beauty

Morning guys,

Thanks for stopping by today, in Glasgow it’s a cold a wet morning but that doesn’t mean we can’t feel beautiful inside.

I wrote this pome called ‘A Beauty’ last year at the start of my recovery, it was as a result of my realisation that I had an illness that needed specialist treatment rather than the ways that I had dealt with it all of my life.

For around 6 months prior I was in pain, a pain that I had all my life but it had just gotten steadily worse as a result of the traumas I was experiencing, but during this time I managed to write ‘A Beauty’.

So, here it is, i hope you like it, i’m open to any feedback, so please feel free to contact me and lets connect.

A Beauty

A beauty in the sun
A beauty that is second to none
A beauty you can see as far as the eye
A beauty that can’t be denied

A beauty that fills your life
A beauty in the strength of your wife
A beauty without compare
A beauty that can be seen everywhere

A beauty in everyone
A beauty in fathers and sons
A beauty as clear as the crystal waters
A beauty in mothers and daughters

A beauty that is all around
A beauty from the sky to the ground
A beauty that awaits to be found
A beauty in every sound

A beauty that you can’t see but only feel
A beauty that you must believe is real
A beauty in the fire of desire
A beauty in the match that started my fire

A beauty that I must sustain
Through my dark clouds, wind and rain
Through my storms, troubles and my strife
Only then will I see this beauty really is my life

Thank you

Ascent

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by today, i’m grateful that you chose to look at my blog.

Below is a poem wrote in the early stages of my breakdown, it’s called ‘Ascent’.

It describes the feeling every morning when waking up of trying to get through the day and feeling like you have to climb a mountain just to cope.

I hope you like it and perhaps can even relate to it.

Ascent

Each day I wake at the foot of the mountain
When all I want to do is drink from life’s fountain
Knowing i’m going to climb through rocks and rubble
Trying to conquer my fears and troubles

Each night I reach the mountains peak
But of my troubles I did not speak
To speak of them would make them real
Then people would judge me and how I feel

The ascent takes all day and night
But inside my head it’s a continual fight
I keep repeating ‘I shall overcome’
But I wish sometimes I had a gun

I’m the world’s best mountaineer
But with each mountain I climb I can’t get nearer
To peace and tranquility
No matter how good my climbing ability

I fear i’ll be found on a mountain side
Half way up with nowhere to hide
All of my traumas fully exposed
And dead from my head to my toes

Thanks

Shoots

Hi there,

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate it.

I wrote this poem called ‘Shoots’ a few days ago inspired by a picture of a green shoot sprouting from the ground. It made me think of what it’s cycle of life would be in connection with my own.

I hope that you like it.

Shoots

A green shoot sprouts from the ground
Yet to hear life’s noises and sounds
Growing with a perfect innocence
Yet to breath life’s smells and scents

Destined to grow and be big and strong
Yet to learn life’s rights and wrongs
A season ends a shoot will die
To await it’s time again to rise.

Thanks

Dancer

Standing on the point of her toes
Who knows where she will go
Will she pirouette onto success in her next step?
And live life without regret

Such beauty in her poise and balance
Emanating from her talent
For more than every day she carries on
Her talent will remain life long

Thank You
