Positive mind

A positive mind is hard to resist

How could anyone not want to be like this my

A smiling face is a look of gold

Keep laughing from your birth until you are old

Live life benevolently because kindness

Is absolutely free

And don’t forget keep love

In your heart

That way life can never

Tear you apart.

Be happy

Be strong

Be spirituality.

Hope even in hateful minds

Narrow minded people

With hateful vicious minds

Venting their vile threats and language

On social media online

They take to streets in numbers

Feeling safe within a pack

Trying to find the courage

That when alone they lack.

Its disgusting and repulsive

The things some people post

To those they understand least

And so because of this hate most.

The people don’t like anyone

Who is different from them

Easy to blame others for all of their failings.

Now I don’t hate these people

I feel sorrow and pity for them

And I would much rather try to help them

By showing them the richness of different cultures

Different colours, faiths and views

Show them that coexistence is the enlightened truth.

I show them nothing but unconditional love

And unconditional compassion

I do this for myself as well as them

And understand we’re all driven by passion

But that sometimes we have to question if what we believe

Is actually true

Or maybe we’re deluding ourselves

And doing things others manipulate us to do.

I offer to these people always an olive branch of peace

In hope they will one day touch it and their negative ways may cease

We must not give up hoping

We must not give up the dream

We must not end up being like them

Violent and hateful to such an extreme

We must always offer to all our love.

Cold winters tale

Cold and icy

Slippery underfoot,

White frost covering every nook,

Bites the face as you view your breath

Witnessing the steam exhale from your constricted chest,

Ice dew webs decorate the scene around,

Toes and fingers go so numb

Nose is red, cheeks feel the burn.

Winter cuts like a knife

Maybe we should all hibernate at this time

I long for home and long for warmth

Summer memories now long gone

Chilled to the bone yet still better off

Than those living rough who have no home

And have to sleep out in this

Where going to sleep every night is a risk

As they never know if they are going to wake up.

She is different things to different people

She is like Marmite you either like or hate her

some say she is like margarine easily spread

some say that she a diamond deep within the rough

but to me she was just a beautiful soul to me.

Some say she is like a grapefruit, sour and bitter

others say she is like a tangerine sweet and succulant

people who say they know her say that she is like a prickly pear

but like anyone else you meet she’s fine handled with care.

Universal rule of life

You can spin anything from politics to religion

To your way of thinking

But it don’t ever and won’t ever make it true

Unless you abide by simple universal rules

That is we are all one

That we are one race

That we shall share one lot

And hold no hate

And that we must forgive

And live in peace

Share the compassion to its furthest reach

And understand that we know nothing

We are creating as we are going along

So nobody’s wrong and nobody’s right

We just have to try and live a good life

Without taking sides

Because in the end we are all creations children.

Immortal dreams

On a promenade of immortal dreams

I stand assessing the entire scene

I try to attain impeccably

The life that I wish to create within me consciously

I see so much I wish to do and so much that I wish to be

Yet trying to transmogrify this into actual living

And reality seems just so hard to me

I am a hopeless dreamer and I romanticise

About the possibility of a better life

And as I stand out staring on this seemingly impossible dream

I know it is only down to me

To create my conscious reality

And so I must keep faith and belief

In what I want and what I dream.

Worse case thinking

I could be trapped

A long way from home

I could find myself held hostage by the snow

I go to work and hope that I can get back

To the place of warmth, my home but that confidence lack

I struggle feeling unwell yet I drag myself in

To work my shift because I’ve been taught to believe

That working hard and dutifully

Is the best thing for me.

Yet on a day of feeling so unwell and snow falling all around

I ask myself is this truly good for me

Or is it that a part of my domestication

Just won’t let me it just makes me feel guilty

I love the snow but not when I have to work

I hate feeling ill and feeling that I shirk

If I take time of to try and get myself back fit

Working towards an early grave that’s how it is

For me and others like me who have no choice.

Wraiths of Avalon

She found herself alone in darkness

In the middle of the night

Within an emerald forest

That let in no light

She had drawn there by compulsion

She was enticed by all she had seen

By passing by this place daily

Why she had come now at this time of night

Is hard to perceive

Why anyone would come here at night

Beggars any real belief

But she felt this was the right time and she walked

Around this place

She felt the quiet disturbing vibe

Given out in primordial waves.

She saw through leaves and branches

A glow of colour and lights dancing

And went to discover just what it was they were dancing to

But as she broke out the cover of the eldritch gloom

She saw an circle of candles

And dias in the middle

And a flurry of filigree incandescent nymphs

Wraiths of Avalon was their title of which they conveyed

And as they spoke she felt herself rise

They had caused her to levitate

And floating to the center

She did not know the game they played

And a chorus of sing sweet and rhythmic

Started to fill the air

And although she knew she wasn’t she felt as though she should be scared

And as the music reached its peak

The wraiths flew faster here and there

And seemed to race straight through her

And she noticed the fabric of her being tear

And though filled with terror as she saw herself disappear

She was also fill with awe at the ritual they now shared

And soon enough in the shortest of time she herself now was a wraith

Flitting in spirit and light and song

Around this emerald primordial place.

Deep deep down

Deep deep down

There is a feeing of fear

A feeling dread

Which is patently clear

In the darkest recesses

Of constricted space

The feeling of distress is commonplace.

Deep deep down

Where there is moisture

Running down the walls

Where your eyes can perceive

Nothing at all

In the confines of ristrictedness

Where people lose their minds

We find ourselves deep deep down in thought as well as time.

Diamond eyes

She looked out on the world with diamond eyes

And saw the beauty and saw the wonder of humanity

But she also saw the horrors and pain

Saw the wicked side of human nature

Saw the exploitation and destruction

And these sights caused her to shed a tear

From those sparkling diamond eyes

But then she saw the hope in those

Who raised their voices for love and peace

She saw in them the determination

Heard their inspirational speech

And knew that there was yet a chance

To heal the world and humanity

It would just be real hard work

Getting everybody else to see and agree.
