Hold It In (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #24)   Leave a comment

Hold it in, hold it in,
‘Til your world begins to spin.
Keep the thoughts below the surface, keep them securely within.
Breathe it out, breathe it out
Keep it calm and do not shout.
The repercussions would be something you could really do without.

Hold it in, hold it in
Hold it strong and you will win.
You will win the argument by never letting it begin.
Breathe it out, breathe it out,
Keep lowering the amount.
Find a solution or compromise, that’s what you’re all about.

Don’t get hot, don’t get hot,
Don’t become something you’re not.
Count to ten and take a second, remember what you’ve been taught.
Keep it cool, keep it cool,
Take you darker self to school.
You’re it’s prisoner no longer and your mind is yours to rule.

Don’t get hot, don’t get hot,
Soon the rage will be forgot.
You spent a little bit of patience for the victory you’ve bought.
Keep it cool, keep it cool,
Just like an undisturbed pool.
In control of your emotions, you are no longer a fool.

Day Off (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #24)   Leave a comment

Taking a day off
Is just work postponed
The emails keep coming
The pile keeps growing
The problems get worse
So my mind can’t rest
As I cannot relax
And forget about work
Because work never rests

Attraction (National Poetry Writing Month #24)   Leave a comment

A force pulling things together
Difficult to separate
Is it magnetism or love?

World (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #24)   Leave a comment

The world is full of vitriolic hate
Spewing out onto our plate.
But there’s never enough to sate
The warmongering bloodlust,
The drive to turn all things to dust,
The will to watch the world combust.

I don’t know the way to save the world.
How to stop the bombs from being hurled.
To stop the flags from being unfurled.
And so they march friend against friend.
Now everyone is broken; no one would bend.
And through their actions, comes the world’s end.

Insignificance   Leave a comment

Insignificance:
Just one more drop of water
In an endless sea
