Peace


A word often scorned,
Or branded a fools dream,
An ideal we all seek,
No matter how hard it seems,
Something we should strive for,
Even if it means chaining the regime.

The Power of Words


The most dangerous weapon in this world,
Is not the gun, knife or sward,
It is the human mind,
Thought and the word.
***
Nothing cuts more deeply,
Without leaving a mark,
Than the words of hatred,
Openly spoken freely.
***
Words can be dramatic,
They can also be subtle,
Destroying people in a swipe,
Or breaking them over a lifetime.
***
So be cautious with your words,
And choose them wisely,
Because are not always aware,
How powerful they can be.

Suicide Prevention Week


In this year of lockdowns,
It’s important now,
More than ever,
To look after your health,
***
If you are feeling down,
Or just a little blue,
Or in need of some help,
Reach out to those who love you.
***
People would rather you,
For the rest of your life,
Than to hear a minister,
In 15 minutes sum up your life.
***
If you are in that dark place,
Stop and take stock,
Think of those who love you,
And miss you if you were gone.
***
Suicide Prevention Week ends tomorrow,
But the pain will carry on,
Look out for friends and family,
And help those you can.


If you need help or know anyone who does talk to a medical health professional or in the UK you can call the Samaritans on 116 123 or check out the NHS site here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/suicide/

Life Could Have Been Different


Life could have been so different,
We could have missed each other,
If God had granted my prayers.
***
But if God had given me the nod,
And granted me a different life,
You wouldn’t be with me tonight.
***
God could have granted me millions,
Or the love of my first crush,
But he didn’t let me rush.
***
He kept me waiting on my toes,
Knowing what was in store for us,
And now you are mine.
***
My prayers are not for riches anymore,
There for the right path to lead me,
To the next chapter of my life with you.

I let you go


The pain of what I lost,
Ate me up from the inside,
Missing the sweet kiss,
Of your loving lips,
***
But that’s all gone,
I let you go,
You took my heart,
And now I’m cold,
***
I have never felt this way before,
The pain of losing,
With the thought of winning,
Now you are not here anymore.
***
I let you go,
I don’t want you back,
You stole my heart,
And I’ll never forgive you for that,
***
You are in my past,
And I wish I had made you last,
But life’s a game made for everyone,
And love is the prize,
***
I let you go,
So why did you come back,
Why couldn’t I say no,
And just let you go?
***
I let you go,
So why can’t you just stay in my past,
I wish I couldn’t feel,
Because all I want is your love.

Some Little Piggy


Some little piggy,
Went down to the market,
To tend to the market stall,
***
Along came a wolf,
And bought all the beef,
Before leaving the market for home,
***
Poor little piggy,
Thought he was a goner,
But the wolf doesn’t like pork at all.

Summer Treat


Summer often brings a treat,
Shirtless men walk down the street,
You can see the in the park,
Or running past the parked cars.
***
A stunning sight for your eyes,
Rippling abs and thick thighs,
Bulging arms and puckering pecs,
With a little drop of sweat.
***
If they notice you trying not to stare,
A nod or wave let’s them know you are there,
A smile back makes it sweet,
That makes my day out on the street.

Family


Family conjures images,
Of unbreakable bonds,
And loves that don’t fade.
***
Family is supposed to represent,
A connection so raw,
It never frays or ends.
***
Family is the act of helping,
When you know,
Things are helpless.
***
Family is about family,
And putting them first,
Before your own cares.
***
Family is all of these things,
And none of these things,
And only works while you care.

New Book On The Way


Sorry for the relative silence everyone. Sadly I have had a close family bereavement lately which has put a pause to writing but I can now confirm my next book is on it’s way.

With over 45 completely new poems and some of my old favourites the new book has been titled and is just awaiting the OK from a couple of editors.

Keep an eye out and stay tuned… Also, feel free to reach out and let me know if you are interested in reviewing a copy for me.

The headline image is just a teaser from the book.

Love,

To the Future


The heart if a fragile thing,
And choosing someone is not trivial,
So spend your days looking,
And don’t relent the search,
You will find some amazing people,
You will also find the jerks,
But keep in mind the future,
Where you will be with your dual-flame,
And smile at your past,
Because you will never be there again,
Take all the hurt,
And all the pain,
And just remember,
Tomorrow you can try again.

Just Give me a Hug


Just give me a hug,
Say it’ll be alright,
And stay with me through the night.
*
Tell me it gets better,
Don’t let me be bitter,
And tell me you will be mine.

Where Have you Been


Where have you been,
Where has the time gone,
And where are we going.
*
Lets not ask questions,
And just go along,
For the ride of our lives.
*
I know I shouldn’t ask,
But I don’t know where we’re going,
And I don’t want you to be gone.

Would You Change


Would you change for me?
As I would change for you.
I know it is wrong,
For me to want you too,
But I love you too much,
For you not to love me.
But I don’t want you to change for me,
So what to do?
You don’t love me,
The way I am,
So I must change for you,
With no guarantee you will love me,
But is this the right thing to do?

I Take You


I ____________ take you,
To always be,
Part of my family.
*
To love and hold,
Through night or day,
And always tell you it’s OK.
*
I give my hand,
With this ring,
To make promise of one thing.
*
From this day forth,
You will always be,
The only one who completes me.

My 1 in 7.5 Billion


You are 1 in 7.5 Billion,
The only one I want to be with day and night,
The only one I would give my life,
I would forfeit everything for you,
I would do what I have to do,
Given the way I feel,
Given the hope I hold,
Would you give the same for me?
Would you at least say yes?
Days and scenes go by,
Nights and dreams of you,
So get out of my dreams,
Tell me you want to be with me,
And hug me all night.

A Fool Just For You


Am I a fool,
To feel the way I do,
To feel this way for you,
My heart is calling out for you.
*
Was I a fool,
To think you could feel this way to,
To think you might want me,
And that your heart might call for mine.
*
Well if I’m a fool,
Then let it be know,
And let it be said,
I am a fool in love,
And I am a fool just for you.

Right Place, Wrong Time


So it would seem,
My heart would be,
In the right place,
At the wrong time.

I love you,
But you can’t love me,
And I am happy,
Although you’ll never be mine.

What makes me happy you see,
Is knowing you are in love,
Even if its not with me,
I’m happy if your happy just as it should be.

Love In Actions


Given a word,
I’ll make it a song.
Given a world,
I’ll make it a stage.
Given a day,
I’ll make it a memory.
Given a life,
I’ll make it amazing .
Given a heart,
I’ll cherish it forever.
Given a dream,
I’ll make it a reality.
And given your hand,
I’ll hold it forever and never let go.

English Teacher Tease


I would talk of curtains of blue,
And talk of clouds of rain,
Or the cold of the snow.
*
But I don’t want to give,
English teachers the pleasure,
Of deciphering my work.
*
By the poem what am I saying,
Is it I’m melancholy or,
Just trying to play around.
*
Do your higher English on this,
And try and find where I am,
When I penned this one.

He FriendZoned Me


I fell for him,
Like the leaves,
Did for the autumn,
I made a move,
With great intention,
I wanted to love him,
I wanted to be his,
He smiled and said,
Were just good friends,
I don’t want to ruin this,
We agreed and I left,
I wish we were together,
But it could never be,
As he FriendZoned me.

The Dark Times


Times became bleak,
And hope looked lost,
For some its worrying,
Because of the cost.
***
A darkening fell,
All over the world,
With panic and fear,
Words that are hurled.
***
These times are dark,
With no end in sight,
Just keep your mind,
Focused on the light.

2019 New Year Countdown 9: To The Scots

And sing our auld lang synes,
Shake hands with our families,
