The poem is below.


Creative writing

The inspiration becomes a song 
depending on an oceans verse 
a seagull's cry calls upon the ancient mariner 

Enchanting riches turns to dust moulded
 
Singing sunrise over horizon's mist 
on the dark side of a moonbeam lost
Howling into an empty void 
blood drips upon material planted 
rays of light paints with hope dwells peace

From it's seed grows the apple bitten 
once sewn deeply shades the blossoms pink 
flowing rivers turning tides over 

The seas part with death tolling time's reflection 
watered by dewdrops sparkling green pastures growing 
stronger for living pierced within daggers hurled by hate

Salted the remains of injured spiced injustices bring 
perfumed inside regrets a living truth expelled nightmares
we all become haunted by ghosts of a past life 
hunted by the wolves whom pack abuse unrelenting

We become the sheep 
through eyes of forgiveness 
held forever fragile within cotton wool 
dancing away with the clouds 
makes way for the sky to open your eyes 
to colour through our optic nerves 
one vision in words to complete

I love the way you ended this poem. Full of hope and faith for the future. God sees us looking up and meets us half way, what else would a loving father do? Well done Liam, xo
