If I Could


I would travel back in time
To when we needed not a dime
But satisfy ourselves to the fuller
Without lifting but a finger

Would love to watch the first light
Swathe the first night
Sit under its glow till morn breaks
Listening to the songs of the birds

I would sit where the sun shines brighter
But much warmer
Where the heaven sends just the dew
Yet wets the plants when due

Wish I could live in that world
That had not sorrow as her word
Before the pain of the first birth
Or the agony of the first death

There I would see the woman made first
Before the taste of the forbidden fruit
Tell her of the outcome of their disobedience
And how it robbed my world of her peace

That lawlessness is the new law
Pain and sorrow are the spawn
Hunger, misery and war their allies
These friendly nature and elements now  foes

Death has stopped being scary
Hope is now being scary
Hoping only makes you a loner
TIll you can hope no longer

There I would stop the first evil forever
We would live in the first world ever
Death and his emissaries would have no sting
Love would reign supreme, the greatest king



Some little things in life
Given little or no thought to
Offer calm to the soul
Now twisted and tainted by men’s greed
And the banality of evil
Not gold nor silver,
Visitors of season can buy
For they depart at will
Love, kindness and honesty
Peace and patience, the chief of all characters
Cost not a dime,
Sceptre, status or power they favour not
Yet the greatest wealth
Any man can attain
The little light in the dark
Ushering in the dawn of a new day
Pointing the way home
And will keep shinning
When man lives no more.



His fragile heart was more than fond of
her comeliness
that his dreamy eyes caught
but that which was in his heart
he could speak not
for this love was not meant to be
such beauty was one desired
by men of great wealth
how would such a gem
spare him more than a passing glance
that would have been more than enough
for his aching heart
he longed everyday
waited for the right time
to bare his heart
and give his love
he waited, untill he could speak no more
without knowing how much
she secretly adored him
and had tenderly treasured the wish
that he would love her too



Two sides to life

Two faces

Two edges

And so are you

Underneath your beauty

You hid your thorns

A double faced monster

Posing as a beauty

You crept in

like a shadow

You are a plague

Seeping through the pores

Poisoned the blood

Wormed your way to the heart

Ravaged the whole body

Beyond repair

You left passion

Where your hands touched

Only to replace them

With delightful pain

Smother you I should

When you were in me

With the heat of my passion

And my burning gaze

Silence me you should

When you had the chance

For all you left behind

Is a wounded snake


First steps

Hello, hello,
Do you remember the first time you ever walked,
Do you remember what those first steps were like,
Or are they just a faded memory you take for granted.

Hello, hello,
For some of us it’s never been a cherished memory,
For some of us it’s a hope that may not ever eventuate,
Some days hope can bring a chance, an opportunity to feel.

The dirt beneath ones feet, in a few small first steps,
Hello, hello…
