Be True

Life may be sad,
Life may be cruel.
Though that's not an excuse,
For being a fool!

No matter what life,
Decides to do,
You must always,
Be and stay true.

WHATEVER IT DOES IT BECOMES A FLOWER

Short May poem by Jeremy Mallett| Details | |

If Death Were to Come Today at My Door

If death were to come
today at my door,
is it a risk,
a dream or a chore?
Today it may pass
or today it may come.
But will I be content
if today it is done?

Whom may Houdini I with such hidden key?
Whom may love this man for the man within?
