Just Nonsense Really
No Pain No Gain 

It’s been a while since I was here
Whispering in your ear
And I sometimes run a mile
If only just to make you smile

As Poetry Soup with potatoes and carrots 
Will tonight fill up my stomach

Several moons fled by 
I, lost in a frost 
Detached from reality
Peered into the orb 

Several mountains he climbed 
Several roads he travelled 
Several injuries he suffered 
Several pains he endured 

The struggle for a heart 
Brought to an abrupt...Read More

No Pain, No Gain
As life is short and time flies.
We must endure our pain and rise.
We often meet what we don't like,
But soon we take to that dislike.
We need some time to see the light.
We need some hope to keep the fight.
We need...Read More

With Age

And Pain

I’ve prided myself on my high tolerance for pain,
And at stages of life it’s became more abundant.
While I ponder the old saying “no pain no gain”,
It seems each year it’s became more redundant;

I don't know why I have to talk about humiliation, 
In the middle of what is supposed to be a celebration. 
But my truth is that life isn't a love affair, 
And sometimes becomes unfair and instill fear 
Whenever we...Read More

One day while working in my back yard,
I tripped and fell and hit the ground hard.

Backing up with the hose I tripped over a boulder.
I fell really hard and injured my shoulder.

proverbial palindrome
'No pain,no gain‘ Mum reminded us wryly.
'No lemon no melon' Dad quipped adding pith to the bitter- sweet maxim.
So there we stood, Sis and I, incarcerated by our own parents and ordered to repaper the entire kitchen.
Just desserts in their...Read More

Couch To 5K - ADHD on a hot afternoon
I push through the gate
by the path there's bay
I've rested as told
Now this is the day
wearing lycra so tight
I'm told it looks gay
past sheep in the fields
all grazing on hay
birds fly overhead,
a lark, and a jay,
in shadows of trees

My painful friend

My painful friend


Pain is my friend... my friend
Always on my shoulder.
His will I cannot hold or bend,
His weight a heavy boulder.
My eyes are true, my face pretend,
Dark rings a circle, tell a story... tell a story.
The mirror to ones soul,

Pain is like rain, though painful it is yet gainful. 
For pain's sake we are abused, yet for pain's sake love is diffused. 
Pain is rain, for it touches all men free or in chains.

Premium Member No Pain, No Gain
It's easy to fall off track, 
Simple to walk away from the task.
Envision losing your balance on rigid floor,
or break a bone running for gold. 

No Pain, no gain without challenges
God's sacrifice was done in vain.
No matter how challenging the...Read More

Someone out there is:
On the ground lying
In pain dying.

Someone out there is:
Inside their stomach  there's nothing
They need something
Something satisfying.

Someone out there is:
Rejoicing for taking someone's life
At home the kids are crying and wife
Because they are fatherless
Because of...Read More

Sandali's Inspiration...

A stillness I don't understand,
A calm I cannot comprehend,
A breeze that brings a gentle message,
A voice that forces me to pay homage.

I listened then to the whispering sounds,
They shook and shattered within my bounds,
And as they scattered far and...Read More

To give or not to give
Is giving up a crime?
Can one throw in the towel, 
Or is it considered crossing the line?
I tried my best,
But my enemy was time

I give up,
But is it mine to give,
People behind me,
They all believe.

Hope regained
Strength rejuvenated
Stress annihilated
Support appreciated

This year was dreadful
My life was stressful
For Death was plentiful
As life was eventful
First my Dog dies
Then my family lies

And my uncle cries
My aunt tries to cry
No one else even bothers...Read More
