I’ve always loved reading poetry since I was a child – rhyming books, then verse and then the more intense blank verse too. I do have more of an inclination towards rhyming poetry though.
As I grew older I took to writing poetry myself and most of my poems reflect the mood I am in. Needless to say I write best when I am sad or very angry.
Since today is National Poetry Day, I thought I would ahre a few verses from each of my favourite poems that I have written. If you enjoy reading them, click on the link to read the whole poem and tell me what you think –
Destiny may hunt us down,
Show us a future bleak;
And yet we’ll face the prophecy
And peace within us seek
Taken from Out of the Darkness Comes the Light
He’s You when you are hurtful,
When you make others cry,
He’s you when you strike with all your might,
With little thought of why?
My Mom – she was an angel, albeit without wings,
She brought us up with love and care that only angels bring.
Your magic lamp has no Genie
No matter how hard you rub.
Your carpet won’t fly you to magical lands
And your beanstalk’s just a shrub.
I’m not a yummy mummy-
In fact, not even close!
I sometimes spill the porridge,
And often burn the toast.
Do have a read and let me know what you think. Could I be the next Keats or Browning? 😉
