the girl with tattoos
tattoos that she choose
express her identity
marking her body
she walks in the field briskly

what do they all mean?
her life she’s the queen
in control of everything
she’s happy with them
they’re her finest gem
she wants to live life with zing

when will she stop?
perhaps it’s nonstop
like a form of addiction
continue till end
we can’t comprehend
what was done can’t be undone

she’s the girl with tattoos
she’s got different views
doesn’t want to be the same
with any others
we have no answers
just accept what she became

Don’t mind me I’m just an old guy

Eating my food and passing by

Nice to see the couple so high

Man is waiting for her reply

She’s thinking about it, I guess

Reminds me of my youth, God bless

 

I’ve always loved watching people

Making up stories I’m able

Somehow it makes my day not dull

Dialogues and fights, so ample

Then I go back to my own home

On my own and so monochrome

 

I once had a colourful life

Been all over the place with wife

Meet her again in afterlife

Just passing by with my life

Victory – Writing Wednesday – 15 February 2017

me-and-my-gal

Me and my gal always together
We laugh, we fight and we just chatter
She’s in my team and we’re winners
Our teacher tells us off coz we’re chewers
I’m sure when she grows up, she’ll be a cracker

I wish I may, I wish I might
That our future be always bright
Reveal the mask of shallowness
And that we shouldn’t make a fuss
Collapse from the radiant fight
And with your armour, my knight
Emerge a winner of the track
And for you to come back
Longing for you and you alone
And I could put you on your throne
The river runs deep and oh, so cold
Like it was always been foretold
I can feel it in my bones, your love
Like the cooing of the dove
The reel of passion all wound up
I don’t want a breakup nor a shakeup

Together we stand for what we love

Equality, understanding and hope

With perseverance, one day they will come

 

Healthcare, housing and other basic rights

Everyone should have these benefits

Together we stand for what we love

 

We’re all equal, with any race and religion

Sharing love, acceptance and kindness

Equality, understanding and hope

 

And so we fight for all these to happen

Never give up, we are all for them

With perseverance, one day they will come

 

Healthcare, housing and other basic rights

We’re all equal, with any race and religion

And so we fight for all these to happen

The waterfall – Daily Picture Prompt 54

The waterfall – Daily Picture Prompt 54

zkpiplfdia0-chloe-smith

commune with nature
listen to its talk
chasing waterfall

chasing waterfall
sound of the fountain of life
ever so faithful

ever so faithful
stridently trickling down
splashing like pearls

splashing like pearls
cleanses the soul and spirit
refreshingly good

refreshingly good
cool water, my loyal friend
drizzling onto me

drizzling onto me
a curtain of white water
in nonchalant way

in nonchalant way
on such a gorgeous day
a force of nature

a force of nature
both beautiful and brutal
charming waterfall

charming waterfall
I am a minor observer
watching you with awe

A sonnet to our mother

A sonnet to our mother

5fc745c18f3798e403ce7ffaef38a826

Oh mother dear, let us tell you something
You’ve always supported us come what may
With your soft smile and the joy that you bring
You’ve redirected us when we’re astray

With your love you’ve kept us safe through the years
Sacrificed your needs in favour of ours
You’ve shared with our achievements and our fears
You haven’t shown us your tears and your scars

What you drummed in on us we remember
You have brought us well, that’s why we love you
You have been a big part of what we were
You’ve been our model, look how we all grew

The centre of our lives, our rock and heart
For us you always have a special part
