Poetry never used to hold much with me, I thought it aimless and rather pointless, but that was then and this is now. I’ve recently been reading the poetry of kinglizard and infinite, and I can now safely say that I’ve shed my childish image of poetry, poetry can give the reader an insight into the mind of the writer, poetry can give the writer a source to project their thoughts.
The words within a poem can mean different things to different people; poems can also influence people on the emotional level, bringing both joy and sorrow.
Although the following poems are my first, I happy with them, they’ve enabled me to put what’s on my mind into words. Whether the words carry any true meaning…well that’s up to you…….

Thanks for Reading

We rise and fall,
Dreams with us through and through,
Hope strong and true,
We cast off our chains,
Reaching for a place,
Where our words will forever be true,
Seeking and Searching,
For a place I once knew,
Will I ever see that which I once held so true?

We shall stand,
Though few we stand,
We shall stand,
Though the ages pass us by,
We shall stand,
Though we have been forsaken,
We shall stand,
Because it is we who stand, forgotten, lost and drifting.

Old Soldier

Load the rifle,
Ready the troops,
Man the wall,
Await the foe,
Steady the arm,
Ready the aim,
Send up a prayer,
Unleash the hate,
Lose the mind,
Feel the pain,
Breathe the fear,
Feel the sorrow,
Shed the tear,
Cast down the gun,
Wait for the end,
When all is calm,
When all is quiet,
When all is lost,
When all is gone.

Twisted and Torn,
Pulled in two,
By you who once claimed you were true,
Whispers claw and scratch,
Words tear and grasp,
My heart beats too fast,
Eyes flare with wrath,
Tempers scream for a clash,
Why must we both act so rash,
Shed our painful past,
And we’ll be together at last.

Walking here soaked to the centre
The rain clouds unleashed above me
The moon sharing its casting glow and the night wrapping around me
The puddles splash beneath me while the shadows cast behind me
My hands are swinging by my sides as my feet calmly carry me
I now tread a familiar path the smooth concrete beneath me
I see that warming glow a beacon in the night
That familiar door greets me home
I place myself in my favourite chair the cold outside now far behind
I slowly rest my head and smile, home sweet home good night

We live on an Island fully proud past and present
Others say we have done much wrong
For we have often gone forth blind yet full of song
We have often stumbled, fallen and cried
But standing here we are the people of Britannia and damn us but we stand here with pride

I sit here on my stone
In the middle of my pond
Watching the world go by
People pass hand in hand
Smiles on their faces
Many sit under shadowy tree
Hiding from the bright midday sun
But people’s fun still continues on
What a life it is to see the world from my lonely pond

I'm split in two halves
Each battling the other
One claims reason
One claims heart

Unready I stand
Battle lines just about drawn
My mind is a war zone bittersweet and torn
It's like I'm encased in a game of never ending fate

There's no answer in sight
Not a single second of respite
Maybe soon it'll be decided
When heart finally speaks out

Poetic note: Straight from the heart this poem

Wow UK, Walk Home is just so good.

It speaks to me so personally. The emotions that it conjours are embedded as fond memories. The imagery appears so... English.

Perhaps it's the rain.

Great work.

Stepping Away

Torn us apart a cruel fate of occasions
Time is drawing near to pack up my belongings
The tears and emotions are welling up inside
Sad thoughts drift across my mind

It's time to take that fateful step
Out into the world still not sure if I'm ready yet
My thoughts rest with home
But so to speak I won't be going forth alone
I'll have my friends and family waiting for me at my fond remembered home

I'll be gone for a while
But be sure I'll return soon
For the pull of past memories
Will always draw me back to the places I once knew

See Her Soon

I'll see her soon
When she visits me here
In my humble home from home
Its no castle or palace splender
But her smile will turn it into a wonder

I'm counting the days till she arrives
I'm longing to see those star like eyes
It feels like I've been gone for more than a while
I can't wait to see that beautiful smile

The time is ticking down
My heart begins to pound
Its no longer time to wait around
Its time at last to see her heart warming smile
