Lost in tangled torrents of my mind
Memories I now struggle so to find
Faces ghostly now in their appearance
Smiling just a distant interference.
At times a flash of vivid inspiration
Clear as day recall the information
But then, there is no way I can relay
No matter how hard I try, I cannot say.
I am here within my troubled mind
Sit, don’t shut me out, just be kind
Stay awhile you may not see the flicker
When your around my heart just beats
A little quicker.
Outwardly I’m just a timid frame
Inside I see your face it’s still the same
Thankful now for kindness that you now show
Hold my hand it’s near time for me to go.
Fear the future
I fear the fuse is getting short
While we are praying for support.
One man governs now with tweets
Unrest is spilling on the streets.
A fearful shiver down my spine
See refugees along the Rhine.
Their villages the bombs do pummel
Homes and schools now turned to rubble.
The world sits now upon the brink
Can we survive or will we sink.
For now the UN must police
Come together and broker peace.
Fears are that it is all too late
We sit for hours in this debate.
Do they listen or even care
Radical, fanatical, doctrinaire.
No way back
“Pack up”. said mrs. Rabbit “Hurry”
Ignore the sounds, no need to worry
The earth above now torn to shreds
Raging earthquakes in our heads.
In war the humans do engage
Killing all in rabid rage
To think that they are “civilised”
To us it comes as no surprise.
Evolution of the human race
Has evolved into a basket case
We watched as guns, bombs, knives
They took away each others lives.
They hunted us into extinction
Blew the ozone to depletion.
A rocket launch it zoom right past
Sadly this world has seen its last…
Don’t Hide your fears
Wake up early cover your head
It’s so easy now to stay in bed
Close your eyes to troubles mounting
Ignore the bills, just stop counting.
Behind locked doors no prying eyes
No one can see your slow demise
Smile for neighbours who pass by
Inside that troubled heaving sigh.
Spring is here buds appearing
Birds awake loudly cheering
Maybe it’s time to step outside
No scary world from you to hide.
Just pent up fears exaggerated
Inside your tangled mind debated.
You know sometime you must shed
The dreadful fear that’s overhead.
There’s always hope, friends to share
People out there who really care
Let them in and you’ll feel better
Work through troubles now together.
