Reaching for the Moon in 2020

Blink and you’ve missed it – 2019 has gone. I’d never been the type to make New Years’ Resolutions – they meant nothing and most of the time people had given up by mid-January. However, that all changed when I decided to make this year the greatest year of my life so far, and it has been beautifully, chaotically, great.

About an Anan

Here’s a poem about an AnanThe most fabulous one I knowShe doesn’t even mind too muchWhen I run over her toeTwenty-five years of having a granddaughter,Now, that’s a special bondShe’ll announce to everyone who’ll listenThat I’m her only one“Granny” was a mouthful,But “Anan” came naturally,And as soon as it was utteredIt fit so perfectlyAnan has the best one-liners,Like, “I’ve met Anan before”,And, “I made apple p...

It's Their Fault

“It’s their fault”, that’s what you sayThey need to change the rules in order for you to playBut what if, sometimes, you met them in the middleExplained your situation, to them, it’s a riddleSee, here’s what I think, you’ve overreactedAssuming there’s hate, you have self-brandedGiven yourself a label, that one you despiseNow you’re the outcast, but not in their eyes.Don’t get me wrong, there’re idiots in this worldShouting abuse, and to you it is hurledBut most people just aren’t awareSo, it’s d...

You say I'm not normal

You say I’m not normal, but what do you mean?You claim I don’t fit in, explain that to meWhat you think is crazy is another person’s boreI am not an expert, but I know this for sureSo, let’s get back to your definition.I’m not a genius, but I’ve had a premonitionWhile you’re sitting behind the screenRanting about who shouldn’t be seenThose you call outcasts are changing the worldAnd you’re so outraged, you haven’t even heardBefore you s...

Hypnotising

Take me away to another place and timeWhere I’d be okay, and on cloud nineTake me quickly, unravel my soulGet me out and away from this hell holeThis body, I fear, doesn’t like me muchAnd my brain holds life, sore to the touchIn a hypnotising state, I wish to beSo, I could escape and be free from meBecause wouldn’t it be nice to be you for the dayWith my troubles gone, I could say“I am pretty, and I am pureThis is happiness and I am cured”

Life is a Panto

Life is a panto – a barrel of laughsBut untamed joy will hide the cracksAnd just when you think no damage is doneLook out, he’s behind you - let’s start the funHe slowly sneaks through the chaos and crowdsThe audience chants and, unnoticed, he bowsWho he is, you'll never knowBut he is felt most when you’re aloneRocking in the corner, you’ll get no sleepIn the darkness and shadows, he carefully creepsIt’s too late now, the spotlight’s been shoneHe’s within you, but the show goes on

Truest Form

One finger on the wheel,The curse was brought upon.But the Dragon had saved her,From the life to come.Maleficent was not evil.But, this myth had grown in time.For they'd not stopped to think,About the reasons behind her crime.The Dragon was mistaken,Her heart was made of gold.The King's, it was tainted.To the Kingdom, it was sold.So, Maleficent, she was outcastShe couldn't ever fit in,For she saw its truest form,That world was full of sin.But the birth of Aurora,Made the Dragon's heart melt.She ...

Thursday's Child

Mirror, mirrorWe've been here before.I have listened.But you know the score.You know where you should beNot where you are,We, Thursday's childWill travel so far.But, you my dear,Have come to a halt.You must move onAnd look for no faults.Yes, you've had it roughIt's been hard, I knowNow, step forwardOr, our future will go.We will still live.That is a given,But our path will changeAnd we will be drivenBy hurt from the hopeOf what once could have beenFailing to rememberThe reality o...

Epic Tale

Everyone has a story to be toldA destiny of old or newBut this is their epic taleTwo souls bound so trueThe pair had lived beforeNeither would live againTheir fate was to find each otherBefore they met their endSo long she had waitedSo long he had searchedNeither one knew the reasonThey were once more on the EarthSo many hearts had him brokenSo many hearts she had lostShe didn't believe in loveBut felt it at his costSo as the time grew closerTheir final breath was nearThe souls, they did gravita...

All Hallows Eve

In the summer she covered them well.Her bruises, her war wounds, she did not tell.Nobody asked, and nobody saw,She hid in the sunlight, so very raw.But as the autumnal equinox came,Omniscient Nature sealed her fate.A vision of beauty was sure to emerge,‘Though, first, her demons had to be purged.Amidst the cold air, came the healing,Which numbed her pain and slowed the bleeding.Upon this relief manifested hope.A hunger to change; a desire to cope.She knew that balance was key to existence.As the...
