Poetry, by James Spilman

Genre: Life

There sitting beside you.

You look into his eyes and see a mirror or a bottomless well

Either way you can’t tell

Who’s there

In that chair.

An Election, Poetry by Diana Benskin

Genre: Society, Political

America is in mourning
Today her tears are falling
Those votes that were casted
Seem to’ve been wasted
on the President elect
Whom many now reject

This Presidential Win on which injustice ,fear and divisiveness was erected
This is the premise on which he was elected
The diplomacy portrayed is faux
A breeding ground for discrepancies and misogyny to grow

Now is the time to stand firm and let your voices be heard
your vote is your word
That chose the Popular and rightful president
Not some unhinged and intolerable government

The crusaders cries in the street
will become louder when the numbers meet
Let the crusaders pass
For a snake has just slithered through us in the grass.

In the words of George Nathan
all the above will happen
when no votes are cast by you the good citizen

 Desperate love, Poetry by Fazia Tahir

Genre: Love, Romance, Relationship

I shed tears of pain as l walk by thy side

As thoughts of our past love sears through my heart

I reach out with sincere words entwined with hope

But thou disdainfully look away from me

Have I wronged thee so distant I cannot reach

Why hatred such for l thou hath on me

Kind hearted to all who seek me l beg you… I beseech…

But thou cast me aside with silence, no honour, heart, or soul…

Set yourself free the wind whispers time and time again

Thus far, I cannot, for my soul is chained to thee whom I wed, until death us do part

I shall but forever shower thee with love of the deepest despair…

Until thou heart heal and forgiveth me…

IF?…………………………with apologies to Rudyard Kipling, Poetry by Lesley

Genre: Life, Society

 

IF?…………………………with apologies to Rudyard Kipling

 

If you can find your phone

When all about are fumbling in their bags,

If you can self scan shop,

And not find anything scarier, and carry on regardless

When there’s an unexpected item in the bagging area……

If you can choose the queue that has no ringing bell

And pack your stuff and find your purse

Although you feel like hell,

If you can stir a pot and clothe a tot and fill a vacuum flask,

And find a shoe and clear up poo – then you can multitask!

If you can smile when others take the piss

And not ask does my bum look big in this?

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds worth of emails sent,

Then yours is the earth and all that’s in it –

And what’s more you’ve had  a life well spent

 

Lesley
