Oak

A tiny little ball,
No bigger than a thumbnail,
Lies in the cool, dark ground,
Fed and nourished from the Mother’s breast,
Starts awakening, pushing out,
Developing tiny roots and sprouts,
Budding leaves push upwards and outwards,
Intricate roots push downwards and hold fast,
The little sapling grows strong and proud.

A weary wanderer, seeks shelter beneath the cool canopy,
Laughing children play chase around the trunk,
Little birds in their nests safe high on the boughs,
Caterpillars munch on the good green foliage,
All under the shelter of the proud, mighty oak,
That started out as a little, insignificant seed.

Fly Free

21 May 2016

Mighty wings glide upon the mist,
High up in the blue sky they soared,
Where the majestic peak and heavens kiss,
Towards your home you go, mountains unexplored,
A freedom you have that I miss,
A lone ranger in the vast nothingness,
I wonder as I watch you, when did I lose,
The other me, the flighty adventuress,
Shall I roam the skies again soon,
Beside you, gracefulness abound,
Good Lord I pray, grant me this boon,
Let me fly free, this time around,
Let me discard this physical garment,
Let me grow wings and fly high and free,
Be free from this world of disillusionment,
Let me fly, and draw nigh to Thee.

Hope

6 May 2016

Why hold on?
Somewhere in the abyss of life,
There is a beacon shining,
Calling all the wearied ones,
Who toil on in life’s grim twilight.

Keep moving on,
The happy ending is not too far,
Though the road may be confusing,
And the path filled with obstacles,
The destination remains open.

Never give up,
The dawn of hope is near,
The anguish you face is receding,
Turn your face towards the light of truth,
Whichever path you choose to go.

You’re almost there,
It’s only the final run to finish,
The last obstacle to jump over,
Know that upon reaching there,
We will move worlds together, hand in hand.

My Body

4 May 2016

My body isn’t an apology

My flabby arms held you tight,
My broad shoulders supported your head,
When you resisted crying with all your might,
When you slit your wrists and bled.

My body isn’t an apology

My lumber legs run to you,
My fat thighs burnt with pain,
When you couldn’t break through,
When from love you did abstain.

My body isn’t an apology

My plain eyes wept for you,
My stupid heart yearning in vain,
When life’s lessons you couldn’t go through,
Giving in to the infestimal mental strain.

My body isn’t an apology

My conscience bade me let go,
My large hands left empty,
When you followed her like a shadow,
Quashing my love for you with impunity.

My body isn’t an apology

What I am is not encapsulated by my body,
What you got is what you deserved, you see,
‘Tis because of me that you were once somebody,
No, I won’t return after being treated poorly.

My body isn’t an apology,

Go on and live your life without me,
Our once heaven you grossly condemned,
Forgot all we had; now let me be,
It was over a long time ago, it was the end.

My body isn’t an apology.

Mother

2 May 2016

 

The Mother screams for her children,

As her body is plundered upon.

 

For her mighty ones who once stood tall and proud,

For her ferocious ones who stalked silently through the wild,

For her innocent ones with the swift foot,

For her carefree ones on wings up in the sky,

For her beautiful ones with the rainbow plumage,

For her loud ones that chattered aloud,

For her large ones that trumpeted wildly,

For her loyal ones that tried to save their kin.

 

The Mother’s tears fall,

Mourning her loved ones,

As her body is raucously raped,

And her primeval beauty desecrated.

 

All for the greed of her youngest children,

The Mother finally falls, crushed and beaten.

Enigma

1 May 2016

 

The Enigma wanders far abroad,

An entire whole with missing pieces,

Losing more and more along the road,

Completing everything, yet unfinished.

 

Each piece a key to the unsolved riddle,

Scattered far and wide to the masses,

Still standing tall like a cripple,

The Enigma watches as life passes.

 

A chest full of furious calm,

A mind forming a dark beacon,

A heart of a lion, filled with qualms,

A beloved protégée with no kin.

 

The Enigma wearies on the endless road,

The burning fire continually dimming,

The strong shoulders now bowed,

An animate carcass among the living.

 

Some live to die, some die to live,

Spiralling down the conundrum of life,

The Enigma gazes, as mortals dive,

Into a world of chaos, love, lies and strife.

 

And so it goes on, and on, and on,

The Enigma’s smile growing disdainful,

On pieces of puzzles, the answers are drawn,

Lie neglected, forgotten in a world full of fools.
