When The Curtain Drops

My Father came to visit me last night, normally this wouldn’t seem out of the ordinary, except for the fact that he has been dead for nearly twenty years. He grabbed me by the hand and lead me to a party, some face I recognized, friends and family who had recently passed on. ‘

“This, Baby Girl is the Cast Party. We all come here to unwind when the show is over, ” he said before offering me a refreshment.

I noticed a few people being taken out in handcuffs. This alarmed me, naturally I questioned my father about it.

” Well, I’ll tell you baby Girl, The Director felt they gave an awful performance, so they are being cast out. He just doesn’t see any hope for them.”

Looking around I didn’t see my Ma , by brother or my mother. I became nervous. What had become of them? Again I put my concerns forth to my father.

Sometimes The Director sees potential in people and decides to give them a repeat performance, to allow them to hone their craft. Your mother and brother are among those people they sent back to give an encore.

People like Me and Ma , the more experienced ones get to enjoy fruits of our labour. Ma is up there no in the Penthouse waiting for me.

Love is Universal


A Wise Man


Once Said




All You


Need Is




Heard and felt


In Every






The Inner City


The Deep Jungle


The Highest Mountain


In your Words


In Your Stare


In Your Body




Love is




A Wise Man


Once Said




All You


Need Is







If I have

You Shall


For One Loaf

Of Bread

Is Simply

Too Much

Of shoes

At a time

If You have


Then I shall have


Lighten your load

As I have

Shared with you


Life is a Facade

The Side Show of Life

Two fools


Brought together


By Fate


A chance encounter


Baring Souls


All the while




Behind a Well crafted


Porcelain Mask


Identities Unknown


They choose to believe


The other not knowing


Less the mystique is lost


They know not




Who they truly are


Life is a Facade


We all hide behind






Catching Hope

Hope (Photo credit: bitzcelt)

Inside she felt dead

Down to her last rope

Her life hanging by a thread

She forgot about Hope

Her life had become unkind

Thoughts raced endlessly

She had clearly lost her mind

Behaving quite carelessly

She began to drift away

Waiting for the sound of a creaking door

Limp arms had given way

Hope was caught before hitting the floor

Strength comes from deep within


Not from the outside looking in


Beating the odds over and over again


It’s not tit for tat nor sin for sin




You need to learn to play the game


Or it’s just going to stay the same


Walking the line between Notoriety and Fame


Will Only get you burned by the Flame




Take On the Day


Don’t Give it away


Have your say


Be a Shining Ray
