What I See


I sit and eat and
through the glass wall
I watch and see
all creatures, you and me.

Cheerful ones sprint
jump and run
Mothers and infants
twinned by prams

Slow and fast-paced,
some swift and rushed
All of them today
Apace on their way

Each with a purpose
come what may
Those steps and gaits
intent on a final end

All creatures, you and me
I watch and see.
through the glass wall
I sit and eat.

Inspired by observing people one fine day.


SACRIFICE

disguise your torment

for someone else’s joy…

rein in your tears

for someone else’s smile…

 

 

feign your bravery

to allay another’s fear…

laugh out loud

to shield a muffled cry…

 

 

abandon your beliefs

and let theirs flourish…

cease to exist

for another to thrive…

 

 

you despair to scream

out loud!

silence is a must

your voice fading in a cloud…

 

 

fold your wings

for someone  to fly, high…

step aside, 

let the other walk out proud…

 

 

where there’s love

comes sacrifice

you’d stop breathing

for a new life to begin…

Go…

the way beckons

take the stride

do come forth

leave the hive.

 

halfway you go

doubt befalls you

keep the footstep

upfront, up ahead.

 

however it ends

shove any regret

bask in the pride

you’ve refused to hide.

‘Of The Sea’

There were four

That became two

‘Of the sea’

Just  you and me.

When the world shook

An arm kept me safe

‘Of the sea’

Did it for me.

 

Kept apart by miles and years

The flow of blood, fervent

That bridge between prevails

Unbroken, forever unburnt.

My love, respect and awe

Never lost, be in the know

I miss the big bro

Of the sea, so I speak.
