DAILY POEM "EDINBURGH MY HOME"




There is a place I call home
and never would I leave
my heart belongs to only here
of that you can believe.


The hills are oh so golden
the grass is evergreen
trees are tall and majestic
seldom ever seen.



A castle in the city
streets of aged times
historic views aplenty
churches with old chimes.


Auld reekie is her nickname
she is graceful tall and proud
cobbled streets of yesteryear
traders shouting loud.



So if you happen to visit
this beautiful city of mine
you will enjoy the history
and leave here feeling fine.


Edinburgh is beautiful
so proud to call it home
I wouldn't leave it for anything
even to live in Rome.




Despite this poem I did leave for pastures new, as family moved to Southern England, I would never have left Scotland but still regard Edinburgh as my true home, and at times miss it deeply.

DAILY POEM " THE ONLY WAY THEY KNOW"

Gangs A Short History of Gangs
Born in a World of hate
guns and knives the way
nothing to look forward to
except dying every day.

Ethnic groups everywhere
fighting for their right
looking after their families
every day and night.

Days and nights in fear
wondering what will be next
its not like living in a fairy tale
far from the happy text.

Children as young as five
carrying weapons to kill
education not an option
looking for blood to spill.

Parents in jail or dead
no one to look up to
every moment a bonus
just feelings of blue.

What is the answer?
no one seems to know
just statistics to quote
as the hatred will grow.

We are all to blame
sitting in our safe castles
forgetting whats really going on
its not us involved in the hassles.

Look around what do you see?
the youth ,going nowhere
brushed under the carpet
a place were life isn't fair.

I watched a fantastic movie last night called "freedom writers" it inspired me to write this poem, and it also gives hope about kids in our generation, what they can achieve if only they are listened to!

DAILY POEM "ADDICTIONS IN LIFE"



I'm addicted to chocolate
can't help that
it makes me feel good
fulfilled not flat.

I'm addicted to friends
who are always around
from the very old
to the new ones I found.

I'm addicted to the sun
and the warmth it brings
it makes people smile
and a bird always sings.

I'm addicted to love
and all it unveils
the excitement, the rush
it never fails.

I'm addicted to peace
and shout it out loud
from a singular person
to a massive crowd.

I'm addicted to Animals
and the love they give
the need to survive
to let them live!

We are all addicted to something or other in life, it does not always have to be the bad things like, drugs, or alcohol, are YOU addicted to the above?
