DAILY POEM " THE HOUSING ESTATES"



Concrete Jungle
were there is no hope
no prospects ahead
just a life with dope.


Criminals are rife
no one cares
the well off drive by
and everyone stares.


Unemployment soars
living off the state
nothing to live for
no jobs they create.


Kids grow wild
tearing things apart
dogs run ownerless
nowhere to start.


No sign of greenery
trees chopped down
masses of stone
a desolate Town.


Police coast daily
numerous arrests
single mothers pregnant
after taking the tests.


No one goes to school
their education lost
millions of taxes
counting the cost.


Government ignores
these shocking places
a seperate community
blackened faces.


Centres closed down
no money to spare
then they wonder why
no one will care.


Barbed wire fences
around the estate
shops with metal windows
scared of their fate.


Muggings every night
scared to go out
doors fully bolted
from fear and doubt.


What is the answer?
no one knows
were poverty breeds
negativity grows.


There are many places we can all relate to, were it is like the land that time forgot, poor areas are all over the World, places were the forgotten are left to cope with poverty, unemplyoment, and neglect,sadly in 2012 these places still exist, people are left to get on with it amidst criminal activity, high child birth, and lack of education.

DAILY POEM THE OPPOSITES IN LIFE.



You love, you hate
your up, your down
your in, your out
you smile, you  frown.


You laugh, you cry
you see, your blind
you eat, you starve
you lose,  you find.


You scream, you go mute
you come, or you go
your happy, your sad
you die or, you grow.


You like, you loathe
your free, your in chains
you think, you imagine
you use your brains.


you promote, you ignore
you get up, you fall down
you keep a poker face
you float, or you drown.


you smile, you frown
you give, you take
your either a real person
or merely a fake.


you rise, you fall
you war, or like peace
you enter, you leave
you start, or you cease.


you swim, or you sink
you walk, you run
you are either serious
or prefer to have fun.


a play on words, the opposite of everything can be positive or negative.

DAILY POEM GOOD TIMES, BAD TIMES.




Blinkered by the madness
going on around
we put up with stress
hit hard to the ground.


We go through our day
hoping its cool
having a laugh
playing the fool.


But deep down we cry
with all the pain
like a dulling sound
of beating rain.


We lift our mood
try to smile
at the end of the day
its all worthwhile.


Our defences high
keeping everyone out
we scream, we despair
and shout about.


We turn to drugs
down the booze
to help us out
lenghten the fuse.


But is it worth it
no way in hell
we think out loudly
find an ear to tell.


Another day comes
we start anew
hoping good things
will come to you.


Sometimes we have a good day, other times its bad, but at the end of the day we only have one kick at the ball, and it is up to us to make it as pleasant as possible :)

DAILY POEM "A WALK IN THE PARK"




White flowers
growing wild
loving the weather
because its mild.

Mums with buggies
in the park
babies with bottles
hitting the mark.

Dogs of all sizes
chasing a ball
some are tiny
others are tall.

Green keeper busy
doing his rounds
fish ponds cloudy
out of bounds.

Blissful place
park benches full
a maintenace man
using his tool.

Picnics laid
time to eat
get some rest
put up your feet.

Its time to go
the kids are sad
toddlers sleepy
carried by dad.

A day in the park
is what you need
so visit one soon
its priceless indeed.

We all have access to a park, its escapism from the every day husstle and busstle of life, a place were we can all go as a family, have fun, enjoy the day.
