Premium Member Lost her mum
Lost her mum at thirteen
Worse news there’s never been.
Her youth alone
No mum to phone.
Dad tried his best
Once mum was put to rest.
It’s not the same
She still felt the pain.
No mum when wed,
A tear she shed.
Nor for her first born
Leaving emotions...Read More

Governments
If I was God
I would be angry with the Government
you fight and you bicker
and you get nothing done

Look at England 
trying to get out of a contract
you want your leaders to be effective
they create plans

but then you argue and fight

Wanderlust
I travel to quench my thirst
To break away from everything I know
In an attempt to meet a different sun

And to finally feel the snow

I travel to swop my language
And taste the life you live
To soak in new feelings

That I can...Read More

Sanmati My Inspiration
Sanmati, my messenger, is no more a milksop.
Ardent though is she never will yawp.
Nagging sometimes though in some shop.
Merrily walks in crowd alone till atop.
Amends her needs; tackles one with strop-
Till he agrees with her, else does lop.
In always high...Read More

Book is the only stop
Where all halt from top
For knowledge or whop
Of all sort and thoughts slop.
Though it clear drains prop
For teacher or for carhop.
They are vaguely clear lop
Whenever read makes plop
Of cognition to take you atop.
This is for money...Read More

If I could change the world


Sometimes I don't switch on TV, the radio stays dumb
and finishing a newspaper can leave me feeling numb.
What is it with this world of ours, where did it all go wrong?
How could the higher-ups elect leave it like this so...Read More

Premium Member AMUSE PURSUITS 3
One by one
They come and go;
Bus-stop blues


On the way out,
Smile as you go;
Embrace forgetfulness


Surge of passion
No need to feel;
Go with the flow


Bedtime stories
We swop tales;
Laugh stomach cramps


Basketball court,
Two sides stalking;
Win-win losing


Cable TV
So much to see;
Time fritters away


Hypermart queue
Long as usual;
Impatient...Read More

Get Back Up
Assimilate your view
To match the status quo,
Consensus starts to skew
Hypocrisy on show,
Now you seem the clown
The eager willing pup,
It’s not the beating down
But how you get back up!

A friendship ill-advised
Treacherous and vain,
Before you realized
They’ve dissed you once again.
Smile into a...Read More
