Rags Over Riches

Throw me rags over riches
Cast me poverty less strife
I’ll give peace and understanding
And won’t twist in the knife

I’ll call on strength; resilience
And power to love despite
The ways of darkness, fierce control
That take a bitter bite

And my throne will be one that is
A seat of harmony
Save crown of thorns that spears my head
From rose brier bleeding me

And I’ll still give out compassion
A heart that does not hate
Forgiveness at my very core
And hope that liberates

I’ll bear the load serenely
Whatever hits my face
And live a life that’s founded on
Pure kindness filled with grace

Are We Nearly There Yet?

Are we nearly there yet?
Those words all parents hate
That climb aboard with little child
And on the nerves do grate!

For as soon as engine starts up
And wheels begin to turn
They just believe that time will stop
As  journeys end returns

And in that very instant
All children seem to think
That by some “Who’ish” magic
They’lll trade those forty winks

And reach their destination
Almost immediately
Where “are we nearly there yet”
Will become – “what is for tea?”

Watch Out

He thinks he is a tiger
Or maybe a wild lion
Stalking across the prairie by
The power of Orion
With claws as sharp as pincers
And teeth honed to devour
The flesh of those he pounces on
Dare they stand still or cower
With eyes slit green with envy
And stealth his weapon too
Watch out the cat who sleeps and dreams
For he might jump on you!

Clouding of Consciousness

A neural mist descends
A heavy weight on mind
A plague of obstacles progress
Inhibiting in kind

A nebula that masks all thoughts
Miasmic effluent
That overwhelms and suffocates
Without release; relent

A haze within the brain
A vapored smog depress
To kidnap and take hostage life
Clouding of consciousness

This blog is dedicated to raising awareness of www.stars.org.uk who diligently support all those suffering from conditions that result in unexplained blackout.  The clouding of consciousness (also known as brain fog) is a nasty symptom of many of these conditions.  To find out more please contact Stars who can help ensure that anyone presenting with unexplained loss of consciousness receives the correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment, informed support and sign posting to the appropriate medical professional.

Dreams Fulfilled

In life there are so many things
That stand right in our way
A million blocks that circumvent
Our dreams; our hopes delay

But with a will of fortitude
Of strength and true resolve
Let’s creatively determine
To not let them dissolve

Nor diffuse them in the ether
To vanish out of sight
But courageously take up cups
And mantles with full might

Let’s work out pathways through the mist
Dispelling clouds for sun
To shine; illuminate the way
So inspiration runs

And then we’ll live lives; dreams fulfilled
With difference to impart
That touch, caress and so uplift
The contents of our heart

Gossip’s Cup

If you drink from gossip’s cup
You will surely find
That by the power of hearsay you
Manipulate your mind
To take on what is said
More so than what you see
Sipping opinions lest the facts
That have toxicity

For gossip is mere rumour
Idle talk; some outright lies
That can destroy lives in it’s path
If none dare to then try
To differentiate between
What’s said and what is fact
Then make their mind up and lash out
With horrible impact

To alienate or to pull down
The innocent or pure
For there is sometimes little truth
In no smoke without fire sure
For gossip drinking is unwise
With potential to inflame
To hurt; to damage or to cause
Destruction by their game

So temper what you listen to
And test out, think again
And do not cast the first stone less
Your words have honest gain
And use your conversation
To lift up less upset
Resisting gossip’s evil cup
And cast perspective’s net

Traffic Lights

Oh traffic lights please turn to green
Through amber spectrum go
And do us all a favour please
To help the traffic flow

For when you’re red you irritate
And make us all so late
So please remain a go go green
To pacify our state

And help us journey without hitch
No stopping in tracks dead
But let us travel – carry on
Please lights do not shine red!
