Man On A Phone

Let me tell you a story
Of a man on a phone
He walked down the street
By himself all alone

With head dropped so forward
His arms up to grip
The object – his smart phone
Lest dare it might slip

His eyes were affixed
His gaze held quite true
As he opened his apps
And his messages too

He scrolled down through Facebook
And posted a tweet
All along as he walked
With his phone down the street

And not once it is said
Did he look where he trod
The man on a mission
With a steady plod plod

And then he arrived
At a curbside by road
And stepped off the pavement
Not changing his mode

He walked out not looking
And then with a bang
With a crash and collision
His phone left to hang

Left to hang from his body
Blood pouring from head
The man on his phone
His status: “I’m dead”

Born To Trust

Born to trust so innocently
Cradled naivety
With eyes that seek so openly
For love to come for free
With arms that reach to safety’s shore
With hearts that beat so fast
Expectancy and hope embraced
At birth but will it last?

Dependent for all sustenance
For nurturing by grace
To search the contours of a smile
A warm reliant face
With no more than pure faith; belief
And hope of loving aid
From those who brought this new life forth
That babe in arms is laid

And so we have a duty to
Protect the small wee child
To give the love that they desire
With kindness ever mild
Honour the gift of life that trusts
In each with love impart
To step up and safeguard each life
With shelter, shield and heart
