Premium Member How Is It Goal In
Liverpool showed very early they have a goal 
How very cold? 
But the Londoners got off the couch 
And stood tall without a slouch 
They scored one really quick 
Giving the clock not much time to tick 
As the first...Read More

The crown of the underdog
The crown of the underdog

In the oblivion of failure
A nameless person takes your place
Your face loses a name
Your eyes too ashamed to look up
You never looked out
Now you introspect
A new idea is conceived
A dream is birthed
Another climb begins
Deserted and lost
Strength...Read More

Visit To Austria
The flight to Austria with the teachers,
We shared accomodation when we landed.

I signed up for ski lessons instead taking a tour of Salzburg.
Two weeks of lessons and we were destined to ski the highest mountain in Austria.

And Then I Was Old
Yesterday I owned the world 
I did what I had to do 
And then more. 

My home was clean 
Laundry caught up 
And then a trip to the store. 

Children were fed 
Sports and lessons done 
And they began to...Read More

Premium Member The Silent Pitch and Sportsmanship
It is not a conversation you overhear,
Like the questions rolling underfoot,
"Who goes there?".
You can see the grass has told
How tall to grow
To the chicory, dandelions and clover.
At the edge of the pitch
Where competition is stiff,
They grow bigger, taller and bolder;
Yet...Read More

Nothing at all (So much has changed)  

He has a lot of cars,
motorcycles too...
He love's his sports,
supports all his teams

I tell myself- I'm glad he's happy,
but when I look down deep inside,
I just can't lie...

I don't think I'm being...Read More

A ring's the thing
  of which you've dreamed
A fitting culmination 
  to a season's perspiration

Ticker-tape parade is next
  Wild cheers, the subtext
Hit the banquet circuit hard
  To your frame you add some lard

A new season begins

Premium Member What are Golfers not telling us
There’s a part of me that say’s I’m jealous
Another thinks my golfing friends just zealous,
Whilst I crave fresh air and healthy motion
They’re busy slathering on the lotion
Before they mount some little cart
That with intent they simply point to dart
At breakneck...Read More

I was born to be a survivor and a fighter.
That's why I became a writer.
As a child the physical abuse I endured.
Being a baby it was pretty absurd.

The child of recovering addicts.
Even one that still until recently would slip.
