A New Tomorrow


Picking up the pieces of a broken yesterday

Putting them back together

But in a new and re-arranged way

Looking from a new perspective

Taking a new angle on what went wrong

Knowing it wasn't all your fault

You weren't the one in the wrong

Feeling the weight lift a little

Some of that grey cloud lift away

Knowing that the sun will one day shine fully

When the wind finally blows them away.

Bleeding Ink


Ink bleeds from me

Be it happy, joyous or blue

I just can't stop it from happening

I know it's the same for you too

It's a constant problem

We writers suffer from

The need to bleed out

Our very souls

It's the only way

We can live our lives

Keep going and feeling whole.

I have to confess

I'm a bibliophile

I am a right lover of books

They have taken over all the house

In all the cranny's and all the nooks

Their stacked up all over the place

There's not much room to move

But I can't help but buy yet another book to read

It's as if to myself I have something to prove.

I'm cracking up

Falling apart

A pain is raging within this heart

It's broken, battered

Scarred, bruised

Tired of being used and abused

It needs some healing

A balm of love

Spread over these wounds

That are infected and cut

Given time they will heal

As they always do

But another lessons been learned

From this pain I've gone through.

The awakened one

A composition of peace and serenity

A mindful, peaceful and happy life

A way of life that can transform us

Being at one with the world

Through lifelong learning

Spiritual enlightenment a step closer

A step towards nirvana

A better life in our next birth.
