Escape from life!

Escape from real life!
When I sit and read,
I escape to a new land.
Where supermen and women,
Spread hope that is so grand.
The books are an escape,
To leave this world behind.
To have a place to go to,
To find a peace of mind.
I may choose to be a hero,
Or a villain in disguise.
A misunderstood monster,
Or a mum with a surprise.
The books are an escape,
To leave this world behind.
To have a place to go to,
To find a peace of mind.
I can find new friends and family,
In a well written text.
I can resolve other people’s woes,
No matter how complex.
The books are an escape,
To leave this world behind.
To have a place to go to,
To find a peace of mind
A book is a portal,
To another new realm.
To get there yo must read,
Steer the ship at the helm.
The books are an escape,
To leave this world behind.
To have a place to go to,
To find a peace of mind.
You may be witness,
To an awful crime.
You may be the warrior,
Who fights the end of time.
The books are an escape,
To leave this world behind.
To have a place to go to,
To find a peace of mind.
You may be a protagonist,
Chosen for their mind.
You may be the antagonist,
The hero left behind.
In a book you can be,
So many different roles.
In life you can be the same,
If you have achievable goals.

Never lost

Easy to forget but never lost!
Sometimes we forget to see hope,
We loose sight while trying to cope.
It knocks us off the comfortable track,
Where some feel there’s no way back.
If this happens look for the good,
Guiding you through the dark wood.
Listen carefully to nature’s song,
Remember in this world you belong.
Look for smiles as you cross a park,
Light beaming through the dark.
Family, friends and those you love,
The dispersal of grey clouds above.
The plants that grow in barren lands,
People holding each other’s hands,
Water running cleansing all,
The sounds of hopes unerring call.

Astronaut!

I am an astronaut!
In life I am an astronaut,
I travel round space.
I meet some very unique people,
Alien in many ways.
We all move through the world,
On paths that are untrod.
Each new step paving way for a leap.
Our actions so unpredictable.
I have not walked in their footprints.
I have not lived their life.
In the vacuum of passing time,
We meet rarely.
Yet joined in this state of living,
We must understand,
We are not alone.
Yet part of us may be lonely.

Unite!

Unite!

When I walk across the lands,
I share kindness with every man.
If we all unite as one race,
Then hatred can be erased.
If we aid instead of fight,
We can set the world right.
The judgements based on your deed,
Not on nation, skin or creed.
Prejudice has no place,
Unite together one equal race.

You never win!

You tried to steal my power,
You tried to steal my trust.
You set about hurting me,
You left me in the dust.

But I survived your attack,
I rose from the pain you caused.
Never will I be fooled,
For you I give no pause.

You will never have forgiveness,
For the pain you left behind.
The way you tore at my flesh,
Or tried to shatter my mind.

I am for to strong for you,
Your power cannot rule.
The attempt on me that you made,
Just show that you are cruel.

Who will you fight for?

Who will you fight for?
When all is said and done,
As a race we are all one.
The worlds restart has begun,
Old rhetoric We must now shun.
Who will you fight for?
Who will you survive for?
Who will you change for?
A new path appears once more.
