Quit or keep going
They say I’m not sick 
They say being molested and raped is okay 
You’ll get better 
But it happens everywhere 
The television hides so much 
I can’t stand the judge making fun of those 
With mental disorders and

Elect Him
You elected him again. Are you fecking mad? You remember how he brought in benefit sanctions that led to many suicides? A bedroom tax that broke so many single people. Cutting our armed forces past the bone.

We lost a friend…he made his own life end…we had no time to prepare
News…hard to receive…harder to believe…that left us in despair.

always lurking, coiling, smirking, ready to take a...Read More

Premium Member Goosebumps, Chills, and Shivers
Some stories give me goosebumps. They are found 
in books and films that tell of wicked clowns
or evil children whose cold, empty eyes
cast spells on hapless people all around.

To chase that eerie feeling from my mind,
I spend an hour watching...Read More

Like the author my name is David Welch,

from a universe that was like your own,
so identical that it would confuse.

It was nothing to do with me
It was nothing to do with me,
I wasn't there, and, besides...
Who could?

a bit of a shock.. but then it's OK.

Plunging in, swimming about, finding...

Premium Member A One Color Kaleidoscope

Under all the hate there’s still hope
although it’s difficult to cope.
Evangelist abandoned God
caging families ripped apart
by politicians, with no heart.
Cultist republicans applaud
a President without morals.
And heap gratitude and laurels
upon a charlatan and fraud.
Loyalty can be sold or bought
constitutional rights mean...Read More

There's something spooky about that place,
So no one goes in there.
It makes chills run up your spine.
There's something in the air.

The yard is overgrown with thorns,
Dead trees are dark as sin.
All the windows have been boarded up.
To keep someone out?...Read More

It's Cultural
It’s Cultural hypocrisy,
Like monks selling books on oxford street,
Like a political debate on your screens, 
Like when Donald lost Queen Lizzy.

A color is not my name
Look at my skin,
And categorize me.
Put me in a column,
The society is sickening.

Not a day would pass without me getting called out.
What do I need to do to live in piece?
My skin doesn’t define me,
When can I speak?

Freedom of speech?

Ode to Premature Ended Life
Dedicated to the suicides of lost dreams…

What is this dream that leaves me with baited breath?
Waiting, always waiting for hope unfulfilled,

running and running to catch the light;
an elusive firefly always out of...Read More

I fear I might be woken up by gunshots,
as thugs attempt to break into my house.

I fear everything might have expired in the fridge,
