To All School Leavers

And so to all who leave today
Fly from the nest that’s school
Go forth resolved to grab the cup
Of options and the tools
That you have gained these years now gone
The lessons you have learned
Inspired to contribute; enjoy
Where work and play’s concerned

With goodness, grace, integrity
Go onwards with respect
Responsibility and care
Determined to prospect
A future that exceeds your dreams
One where you shine with might
A future that you’re proud to own
A future that is bright

Psychodynamics

What hides beneath that wretched skin
Sewn in unconscious thread
Affecting heart and mind and soul
That weighs heavy as lead

What conflict duels within unseen
N’er to see light of day
Stirring the bowel of discontent
In subjective array

What means are employed to relieve
The angst from such a fight
Defending mind from warring mire
Yet always out of sight

What veil, what fog, what miasma
Plays out subliminally
Within the core of every one
Within humanity?

Goodie Two Shoes

Don’t be a goodie two shoes
Who gets on people’s wicks
All prissy and so perfect which
In essence makes us sick
But be true to your own self
For that is just ok
No pretence and no masking
Of who you are each day

 

The Sky Is On Fire

The sky is on fire
Burning the embers of the day
Into the oblivion of night
With a wild ferocity
Blazing in the heavens
With the passion of hell
As a sea of flames combusts
To herald in another glorious morrow

The Sky Is On Fire

Swan In The Mirror (Haiku)

Her silent partner
Simulates her every move
In graceful concord

Swan In The Mirror

Lost For Words (Haiku)

If you’re lost for words
Or the cat has got your tongue
Enjoy the silence!

AutoCorrect

You’re driving me crazy
You’re driving me mad
As really you make me
Look terribly bad

As you jiggle my letters
And change all my words
In ways that appear
Completely absurd

By altering statements
When you don’t agree
With the sequence or way
Of my ABC

Or all other characters
Set on a page
As you trample across it
With critique and rage

To do your most damnedest
To point out; detect
My flaws and my faults as
You AUTOCORRECT!

But perhaps for a minute
You’d climb in my head
To see what I’m thinking
More so what I’ve said

For try as you will
To read what I say
If you don’t get the flow, then
You get in my way

For there’s more to a sentence
Than words spelt just so
Called sentiment, meaning
Being in the know

So dear grammar tool with
Your huge dictionary
You too make mistakes
Occasionally!!!!
