Out Of Nowhere!

Out of nowhere there comes that point

you feel physically blown

health issues arise and you are shaken

it becomes hard to take in

these feelings are very hard to express

when trying to explain a strain

after years of coping your will is very low

your vulnerability is on show!

 

Understand that your certainly not alone

though it does not help you

feeling scared at your physical demise

each day becomes hard to face

as the ability to override fear diminishes

panic wells in every thought

accepting others have far more to bare

for your own sanity must share!

Reflection!

The years have gone by

often wonder where

on reflection think why

nobody there to share

nor guide me to see

there are those who care

to feel more carefree

but of life’s pitfalls aware

is there hope don’t know

can the future change

a resolute smile will show

even if it looks strange!

 

Few notice that your low

a mode of our time

hope the sadness will go

facing the rising crime

if only more could forgive

not just wanting to fight

in peace more could live

showing real foresight

who can we trust today

when supports not found

life’s harder every day

with such poverty around!

 

Easy to envy the wealthy

but there is a divide

for our sanity not healthy

have to swallow pride

a stable society has gone

uncertainty here to stay

no matter how we all long

living is a risk each day!

 

At the mercy of unseen forces!

Pyjamas Trend!

Maybe I am old-fashioned in my ways

but could not believe my eyes

entering a supermarket they were there

customers in pyjamas browsing

unperturbed in their out of place attire

their appearance could not admire!

 

Onesies multicoloured dressing gowns to

is it so hard to put on clothes

to wander around shops and superstores

this would not feel right for me at all

but appears to be an ever-increasing trend

that many do seem to defend!

 

If they do not want to put on proper clothing

ban them surely is the correct way

do we really have to share this ghastly display

what can we expect from them next

beds to be provided and lights turned down low

the staff silent and upon tip toe!

 

Clearly it is common sense that this laziness trend

should without doubt come to an end!

 

Or is it me being a grumpy miserable spoil sport?

The Tattered Flag!

On the edge of an open field hung the tattered flag

the only indication of the battle

long forgotten the torment of lost innocence

or names of the fallen soldiers

one more conflict where nothing had been won

there a feeling of death still hung!

 

Bodies buried in shallow graves where each fell

young lives ended in torment

grass now covered the site and sheep grazed

where restless souls still roam

no cannon or musket fire nor smell of cordite

as two armies clash in the fight!

 

Silence is what greets the visitor to this field

pleasant during daylight hours

as the shadows lengthen a mist hangs low

and voices have been heard

crying out longingly on the endless breeze

rustling the grass and trees!

 

The tattered flag blows proudly in its salute

to those nameless soldiers

from long ago whose spirits will never leave

all those families of the fallen

remember their ancestors ultimate sacrifice

in war a cruel and futile device!

 

The tattered flag remains as a remembrance!

Streaks!

Streaks of white across the cloudless skyline

indicating a plane had crossed

visual signs of airliners zigzagging above

as the air traffic ever expands

risk of accidents and mishaps increases

night and day never ceases!

 

Dangers are low its said compared to roads

but planes are becoming bigger

far more passengers and freight carried

no money made on the ground

we take little notice of the man-made bird

until a tragedy has occurred!

 

In that intense eagerness for constant travel

and the need to boost revenue

raising the hazards to a more dangerous level

where lives seem dispensable

crammed in a flying tube problems unforeseen

reliant on crew and machine!

 

Each and every day we gamble with our lives

in our homes moving around

no guarantee of safety can ever be assured

but an expectancy of long life

dreaming of flying away to exotic destinations

with those tingling expectations!

 

Aboard jets that leave streaks across the skies!
