Road Rage Revisit Manurewa New Zealand

Memories of him are still there upon Weymouth Road
his sullen white cross nailed to the old Kauri
symbolize by countless layers of uncaring street wise graffiti,
while burdensome scars revealed by heavy metal grow faint
and the old Rose i placed withered and faded
in the over grown yet still blood stained grass,
a monument still there for the few of us
those that cared those with lives full of guilt
'when you mate ran out of life number nine!'

    One has to be through that to truly appreciate the depth of feeling and the emptiness we sense when someone goes. Excellent because so true! Thank you for sharing.

    your take on the NINE theme was very interesting and original. The poem makes me want to know more on this subject! It was great to see two new posts from you today, Harry.

    What a poem you penned here. It is sad, but it happens. Here When someone dies in an accident, They always put up a cross in the place the person died. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    I love this but I sure hope it's fiction for the contest. My favorite lines are 3 and 4, you just know how to effectively conjure up the images!
