The Hope Tree

Monday, April 13th, 2009


A seed

Timely washed and renewed with rain
Soon a green shoot grows
Bursting through the air like a mighty warrior
Proud, fierce, strong

Where there was death
A chance of life

Across the burnt and stricken land
Of black trees and scarred hills
Cracked earth and sweaty rocks
Blistering Sky
Grows a tree that has won the battle

The hope tree lives on (more…)

The Beauty in the Stars

Above the towering gums
The shimmer in the night
A gentle breeze that stirs
A million sparkles
The beauty in the stars

First Kiss

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Sweet warm and wet
Slippery tongue
Flutters in the stomach
Hungry for more

What’s the point?
What’s the use?
Grey is how I feel
Black inside
Bury me alive
Leave me alone
Tears inside
Done to my bone
I hate how I feel
A withered weed
Struggling to survive

You Break My Heart

Friday, January 30th, 2009

I thought you were kind
And a decent human being
I trusted you to be my friend
But the rivers of pain
Flow deep inside me
My broken heart again
