A poem

There is something I want you to see
beyond the plastic screen
and the flashing images of lights that make
you believe
that this is life
and everything else
reside in our dreams

Tonight
i want you to see
the beauty of the world
hidden in the stars
on a clifftop
near the sea
i want you to believe
that this is life
full of limitless possibilities.

A poem

It is calm
at night
it is around 9
I close my eyes
to think
about life
it is nice
the stars
up in the sky
are as mystical as life
wouldn’t it be nice –
to know
why we are here on Earth
I want to know
and learn.
I know we have tried
but I am tired
of this life –
fashioned in greed…

A poem

I woke up
and prayed
thankful for another day.
i am not sorry for the mistakes
i made yesterday
it’s a learning curve
God intended my way
i am better
and stronger
they made me who I am today.
i fight, than fly
i am going to win
because I recognise
who I am;
the things I want to achieve…
i am not a perfect being
i don’t try to be
I just want to spread my wings
and live freely.
