    A Soldier Old, A Soldier New - Is That Soldier You?

    A prisoner in a time of war, A camper in the field, A soldier tramping off to war, says goodbye to all his friends.   Red is the colour of shiny new shoes on school childs feet. Red is the beautiful bow in baby's hair. Red is the colour of blistered feet on...

    Coloured Glass Pebbles - Fill My Brain

    My mind is full of pebbles, Little glass and colourful, They shine like stars as ideas burst from veins like squirts of paint.   My eyelids are dark and bagged, My eyes they shine out anyway, They see around from sky to ground and create my world of everyday...

    I feel like a ghost, like no matter how I try

    and push away or swat at these feelings my hands just phase right through, I'm really am trying to be positive but it’s not working, the more I try the more I fail, is the failure just life’s way of telling me get used to this because you can’t change it?

    Shadowy Streams

    Shadowy streams,   The water gleams upon the stones that we call home.   Dust and dirt and sand it hurts when blown on parched, cracked faces;   Water for granted and food it's fasted in poverty striken wasteland.   Roll with wind as the peasant joins the land...

    say is So raw so true so deep. You think you know what's coming out my mouth next, But sir, you know nothing, So sit back, shut it down and enjoy the ride. Into my mind, the one place I rule. The one destination you may never leave from. When the lights shut off and the...

    Enter The Dreamland

    In One Ear And Out The Other

    I sit in a classroom with words in my head. They never go in so I may as well be dead. The thoughts are for thinking but they're too hard for me. The words go in one ear, then straight out the other.   I'm sorry you've wasted, all of your time. On telling me...

    The Cell I Call My Mind

    Dark cell with one window, chained to an iron chair.   This cell is my mind.   Those chains are my thoughts.   Free me so I too can look out the window and out on the world.
