Poetry et al

And as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing, a local habitation and a name – William Shakespeare


“Life is a sorrowful joy…dream and smile
and when you stumble sit and sing.
It’s a jolly good morning Jeshua.”

He lived between the walls of today
a past peeking into tomorrow’s haze
But his thought was a sphere of gratitude.

Staggering from the weight of hunger pressed on him
he would still a smile gift to those little hearts he would never bear

“Life is a sorrowful joy…dream and smile
He would hum
…and when you stumble sit and sing
It’s a jolly good morning Jeshua.”

But when nightfal came
Strength he only had to whisper
As he looked into the stars with delight

“Mommy? Pa…pa?”
“But I don’t know papa.” He said
“Maybe I will now…for I will see them all soon.”

Jeshua had slept on
With his song playing more

“Life is a sorrowful joy…dream and smile
And when you atumble sit and sing
It’s a jolly good morning Jeshua..
