Too Old.


“It’s been too long”, the old will say,

The steps of life, away they play,

They fought our wars, and died our deaths,

We play our phones, and curse their tones,

We disrespect these slow old men, that seem to think, inside we’re doomed,

We push them down, and make them wait,

They look so broken, with fragile weak eyes,

The youth show nothing, no matter their age, they rush and jump, no fear or pause, they talk of things, no root or cause, they worship their iPhone, Samsung and all,

This old man watches, and laughs at their ways, they are afraid, their courage is cowardly, their minds of technology, drives them towards insanity, broken and shameful, we fought for their freedom.

Undo My Credit!


I have a bank, so full of credit,
I look around and fill the debit,
A top I’ll buy, to fill my pride,
A smile of envy, to show am wealthy.

I walk with cards, to match my style,
The poor will see, the riches in me,
I buy with easy, unfazed by price,
The cash will flow, for I am bold.

My bills ran high, my mind not fussed,
I spent it all, without one thought,
My credit in life, no taker in death,
I pleased them all, my vanity can say.

I made friends quick, but all by sight,
They shared my joy and spent my credit,
They loved me more, with all my debit,
I was a prince, no man can edit.

But soon not long, my credit became debit,
I hit hard times and flashed no pride,
I lost friends quick, just like my credit,
I was now broke, this life now debits.

I begged the few, with hints of shame,
No food to eat, for fame I blame,
I sold my heart, for wealth on earth,
A life of debts, my reasons for kneeing.

I walk now low, with head hung down,
I wear these rags, to show pride’s work,
With holes in shoes, I brought in vanity,
The rich now poor, my curse with sanity.

So can you see, the lies I led,
I walked with sin and spent it well,
I showed you all, the beauty of credit,
But didn’t you see, my soul of debit?

Silent Night!


Silent Night, these tracks for walking,
Gentle wind, all noise surrounding,
Moon so bright, my eyes awakened,
Tired legs, no end to strolling.

Alone at last, no burden to bite me,
Life so full, no time to breath then,
Now these tracks, my journey to freedom,
Looking round, no cage to keep me.

Cracking sounds, these tracks are living,
Shaking ground, all steel be squeaking,
Rumbling train, no light be seeing,
Where’s this train, my life be leaking.

Pounding noise, my head be shaking,
Twisting round, could grace be coming,
Walked so far, now I be racing,
Chew-Chew train, racing on behind me.

Running fast, all strength demanding,
Whistling horn, this beast be making,
Time so still, could I be faking,
Deafen drums, my ears be tearing.

Freedom gone, this train will crush me,
Here I stand, no glory to find me,
Weary soul, could angels guide me,
This my end, no tears you shed now.

Closing eyes, whilst courage defends me,
Stop to run, now turned to fight him,
Sparks flying, this train approach me,
Horns blurring, my ears keep telling me.

Braced to meet, this king of tracks,
Hand held high, my eyes deny me,
Clinging bell, this beast informs me,
Head crouched down, life flash before me.

Hissing breath, this train is stopping,
Weaken legs, now I be kneeing,
Metal teeth, in front to greet me,
Empty tracks, no more tonight see.

My Declaration!


I have loved and laughed, with tears away,

I have sang and danced on different highways,

I have fought and won the battles in life,

When dawn besets let it be known I have loved.
