you're finally coming home tonight
i wish that filled me with delight

cuz i just might walk
i'm really serious, i just might

you'll arrive by plane and then by car
and when you're near you still seem far
but my life needs to change
and you may think it's strange
but i no longer know who you were or you are

Will you say who it is you await,
That has riled you into 'high dough' state?
It's someone close to
Who knows not the new you
Is it lover or family? Best mate?

we talked but now i feel guilty
it's more about mental frailty
when the madness comes
i just want to run
i'm sucked dry of all my gaiety

i laid it all out on the table
cuz the truth is i'm kind of unstable
sometimes i'm a rock
but one turn of the clock
and my world's like a twisted old fable

A new baby awaits the right time
She's curled, head down and thriving
I had to write a sentimental rhyme
To let her know Grandma is driving
Through the snow, around the trucks and through the grime
I want to see her first blooms and striving
To make all the miracles that create the sublime

I envy you your new life
To protect against trouble and strife
To hold, love and keep
Watch as she sleeps
The world she gifts with new light.

Hope all goes well Elsie, let us know! Wish my daughter would get going on another grandchild for me!!! Lol

Hi Y'all! Inspiration hit a couple of days ago, something about early mornings in sobriety really sparks it off! Thought id share it with you all



_____________
Illusory senses
Instead, a loose glint
of starlight sent
In loose bundles
Bends
Through a prism, glimpsed
Ice-white, rebound of glacial,
fresh chlorophyll scented airs,
In rich beams of sweet joy
My soul exhales
My heart inspires
My mind is light

There is a world in here,
Still.

The moon is high
The morning light,
Against the milk-white clouds
The sky, a quiet blue
I inhale
The icy air
Exhale a sigh

A subtle rise,
The dawning sun
sparks the ice
crystals form
the clouds ignite

The moon dissolves
I nod goodbye

We know it all,
The moon and I

A sky alight in whitening fire
frost diamond glitter glints over
hoar frost exhales vapour drifts
Like restless spirits
Of these brittle winter flowers
Sunbeams through the splintered glass, ice
Inhaling drying ice biting air
My soul a prism refracting white light into joy
Exhale energy in pure-breath clouds

There is a world in here.

Still

from here on out the days get longer
the sun gets higher, hotter, stronger
and with all my might
i'll focus on the light
instead of being such an angst-monger

it snowed and snowed and snowed some more
it stuck to street signs and to my front door
it stuck to my ears
it stuck to my beard
it stuck to most everything that i wore

it has now been just over a year
since i drank my last micro beer
and Christmas was my last wine
and Boxing Day my last vodka fine
so here's to sober holiday cheer

i'm thinking my way out of this hole
at least that's my new found goal
and i'm not thinking, too
that's what meditators do
cuz all that negativity has taken its toll

i'm accepting my emotional and physical pain
and by doing so i have something valuable to gain
i've given up that insistence
to keep up the resistance
cuz it was making me all ten kinds of insane

I've got to go out in the cold.
This errand bit really gets old.
But there won't be cookin'
If I don't get bookin'
If I sit here, I'll collect mold.

Some are sleeping rough some are losing it all

Some arnt eating much some wont make the call

Some will die today some will surley fall

Some of them tried today and some of them gave thier all

Its always possible theres no writing on the wall

we can all stand together we can all stand tall

My heart goes/ out to those
For whom this life is not what they chose
Whom life has beaten
Live on the street and
Have empty stomach and frozen toes

"When I grow up I want to be a tramp
Carry my life in three carrier bags
Never at peace,
moved along by the police
Always cold, hungry and damp"

No, it isn't what we choose
With life ahead and all to lose
Innocently free
Of destiny
Brought low by fate, or drugs, or booze

So when that lowlife passes by
Stench bringing water to your eye
Thank your God
You're spared that rod
There but for his grace go I

If you've no money, give a smile
Dignity can last a while
Show them humanity
One who could be you or me
A moments kindness in lifes trials
