We choose hope.

How many times will you say the word no?

Should we beg and plead in order to go?

It Is this relationship working for us?

Remember the times you made such a fuss?

Will seventy-five per cent of us be enough?

Or would you just take one-quarter of our stuff?

Can anything help at this point in time?

Can our union withstand all this grime?

We chose hope over fear,

Votes cast makes that point clear,

We chose hope over fear,

As you point and sneer,

We choose hope.

The Lost Season

I don’t want to hear carolling,

My heart needs some consoling,

The season lost by a missing piece,

It’s once bright magic has decreased.

As I hung decorations on my tree,

The pain shrieked like a banshee,

An empty stocking hung by the fire,

No gift could give me what I desire.

The empty space will always be,

A holiday which once brought glee,

Now brings sorrow in it’s wake,

It’s too much for one soul to take.

The Darkness

The bus drives down an empty street,

A man staggers home with two left feet,

Blue lights twinkle in the far distance,

As the woman wonders about her existence.

How quiet the town becomes at twilight,

We fear the monsters that lurk in the night,

Uncertainty of what creeps in the shadows,

A woman worries if these are appropriate clothes.

Silence slithers through the same familiar ground,

He is happy waiting for the perfect victim to surround,

No one around will listen when she cries out in pain,

The woman’s life will forever feel this very strain.

A burden she will carry with her through it all,

Times will be that tough she will fail to crawl,

Horrified at what the darkness could send her way,

This woman continues to fear it until this day.

The Autumn Trees.

As she sits on her chair watching the leaves change,

The feeling of joy seems somewhat strange,

People below are always to busy to notice,

Its beauty is being appreciated by the poetess.

All she can see is the magnificent autumn trees,

How they dance in the slightest hint of a breeze,

The road below her is busy and congested,

But when she stares out she always feels rested.
