Tranquil Thoughts

Our lives in the future are shaped by the ideas and actions in the present 01/04/2021  The navigator plots a course  To greener pastures forever more  Better people, better places, better life  The sweetest taste of effort rewarded  As hard work the furnace  Satisfies where vice falls short  As all the troubles of the past  Drift away in theContinue reading “Tranquil Thoughts”

Treasure

Beautiful people, beautiful souls.  20/03/2021  The girls all looked stunning  Dressed up for a wedding  We wore flowers in our hair  That day at the catacombs  And in a lucky turn of events  A volcano in Iceland erupted  And all the planes were grounded for a week   Oh, what a shame  We had to remain  Another week   InContinue reading “Treasure”

Superman

What do you want to be remembered for?  03/2021  Inspiration and perspiration  Work hard to reach your destination  The call of paradise and sweet delight  Beckons us into the night  Driving home on my own  To my throne I’m in the zone  To acknowledge the blessings  Of first world wealth  To love with gratitude  Our continued good health  PlentyContinue reading “Superman”

The Light Of All That’s Good

I once had a vivid dream about a mighty wooden boat. 04/03/2021 The vessel is being rebuilt  The paradise lost  With the sinking of a mighty ship  Is giving way to new beginnings  New frequencies and approaches  The wooden boathouse  That vanished in my dreams  Left a blueprint  For future greatness  So, we toil learn and engineer  The next chapterContinue reading “The Light Of All That’s Good”

Revolving door

The concept of the career crim, is still alive and kicking.  27/3/2019 A mate went home today  They call him The Levitator  Andf my name being what it is  They call me The Navigator  The ‘Gator’ and the ‘Tator’  He’s a metal head  And I’m a punk  So we can agree  On loud guitars  And pounding drums  A career crim   He’s done hardContinue reading “Revolving door”

Never Give Up

Give thanks for that little crumb of happiness. 01/03/2021 Acquiesce to the rapturous nature   Of freedom from jail  Of freedom from failure  As life improves every day  As I gather pace   Ine the modern rat race  Let positivity prevail  Let life unwind   In the best possible way  Let life be kind  A mountain of work  Toil that’s welcome  For the ripeContinue reading “Never Give Up”

The Lucky Country

 It could have been so much worse.  05/11/20219 When I read and watch  Stories about American jails  I realize I am truly blessed  There’s 2.3 million souls  Mostly doing it tougher than me  And that’s  not taking into account  Prisons in third world countries  But in AMC  In the minimum-security cottages  In a single man cell  With a supportive family  And the reputation that comes  From a brutal crime Continue reading “The Lucky Country”

Black Misery

Sadly, this is true. 27/09/2019 For a brief time  When my sanity was slipping  I thought that  Maybe, just maybe  I had actually died  On the highway that night  And what I was experiencing   Was hell  As my life got worse and worse  As I lost my mind  And everything became  Cold terror, black misery andContinue reading “Black Misery”

The Warrior

I hope I can find the warrior spirit within me.  18/02/2021  The rugged warrior  Shoulders his blade  And walks into new realms of mystery  The future uncertain  He carries the weight of the world  On his massive frame  Few have seen such horrors as he  His pain locked in a box  He buries his past andContinue reading “The Warrior”

The Way the Wind Blows

The one thing missing is something that can’t be forced. 12/02/2021 Now that I know The way the wind blows I can forgive myself Put shame on the shelf Move forward with pride Healed on the inside Because I find That a troubled mind Is in no way rare And that love can repair AlmostContinue reading “The Way the Wind Blows”
