Battle

mythical
red-hearted
dare

sharpened axe
heavy shield
guarding
slivers
of lifeblood –
hacked away

forces collide
in a cloud of crashing kingdoms,
battle crescendoes
deafening
in horrendous
despair

thrusting sword
hailing arrows –
life
and death
mingle in the fray;
unafraid

death squad deployed
riders of rage
spear the tempest storm
one eye blind
one it sees –
destruction of limbs and crown

blood soaks the hill
and the grip of the blade
is lost

Hope

Hope is
the pleasure
of
uncertainty;
it rises
in our hearts –
through the morning mist,
and sets our dreams
free

The Path

There is a path we must follow –
A light, deep within our soul, to guide us

From afar something calls to our heart
To which we can choose to respond

We may stumble blindly over obstacles
That come our way and take a wrong turn

We make our own fate’s by heeding or ignoring
The feelings we harbor in our dreams tonight

The journey is fraught with challenges and
We must adjust our step to the terrain ahead

It’s a lifelong intuition that marks the way in this
Maze; but do we drown it in a logic of fear?

The lighthouse keeps emitting a signal –
A code of harmony only you can decipher

Take comfort in creating your own destiny,
In shaping your own direction through life

Believe in yourself; darkness cannot hide
What we know to be true

Fuming

Born in the exhaust pipes of yesterday
The garbage and waste litters our way

Idolising power structures – weakness
Despised, beset by ignorance – flirting
With disaster, we are the exception to
The rule; a backwash of development

Self-destruction appeals to our psyche
Thrilling doom wets appetite for more

Swimming through the sewage, we are
Belligerent in our beliefs, undaunted by
Any truth words can form, free radicals;
Swarming masses that overwhelms all

Follow the Sunshine

The light of stars penetrates the dark,
Enlightens the mind, heats up the heart

There is a way, a path, for us to follow –
There is a paradise from which to borrow

Come and bask in the glow, be yourself
And let contentment bring you wealth –

Happiness is now, in a dream from above,
We are life and in this spirit flows our love
