“No Turning Back” NEW #poem
Every person on this planet should be equal, it shouldnt matter if you are rich or poor, old or young, religious, white or black;
The world around us is slowly dying, and once it has gone there will be no turning back
We hunt Elephants for ivory,
Tigers for pride, and Sharks simply because Spielberg made us think that everything with teeth had to be Jaws;
We leave children dying of hunger in Africa, whilst the rest of us are busy buying things we wont ever NEED from stores
We send young soliders to fight in wars that will never truly be won;
But we never stop to think about the parents who may never get to say goodbye to their Daughter or Son
Each day we leave millions of children all over the world to go hungry, whilst we just stuff ourselves with a selection of over indulgent feasts;
We kill millions more people than lions ever could, we may class ourselves as kings but deep down we must be the beasts
At night the fortunate ones get to tuck their children into bed, whilst others do not have a mattress let alone a home;
There are over 7 billion people on this planet so there is no reason for anyone to be left feeling alone
We know the icecaps are slowing melting, but i guess out of sight is out of mind;
They tell me ignorance is bliss, but i think its more like ignorance is blind
They tell me from space the oceans look so blue, but if we carry on the way we are going those same oceans will oneday be a darkened shade of black
The ocean is now our dumping ground but once all of these things have gone there will be no turning back
Happy Ever After #poem
Someone once told me “Life is a story book, some chapters will be full of sadness, whilst others will be filled with fun, joy and laughter”;
But when my Nan left us i remember thinking life is to cruel for there to be such a thing as Happy Ever After….
I spent so many nights hiding in the darkness using my tears to write, as pieces of paper become pillows and the floor became my bed;
Some people can see their Nan everyday, but for me i have to write her this letter instead
Nan, I never wanted to leave your side, but you went to the one place that i simply couldnt follow;
I spent so many years looking back on yesterday i always forgot to think about tomorrow
Maybe before we were born we were all angels, and when you left us you were simply going home;
But when you left i was broken, and i didn’t think i could find the courage to fix myself on my own
If i am honest my life spiraled out of control, so i took myself to rock bottom so then i knew i could no longer fall;
It was then i picked up a pen and started writing again until those words helped me Stand up tall
People told me i had to let go and move on from the past, as you had become just another star in our sky;
But no matter how many years flashed past i could never pluck up the courage to say a proper goodbye
I am sorry i wasnt there to try and save you, i am sorry i wasnt there to catch you when you fell;
Whilst you joined the angels up in heaven i was dragging myself through hell
I spent so many years trying to exercise my guilt ridden demons, but still they kept chasing me until i could no longer run;
But my world changed not so long ago when i watched the birth of your great grandson
It was one of the greatest moments of my life, and it breaks my heart to think you could only watch on from your cloud;
I would give anything in this world just to hear you say that i have made you proud
But now i put all of my love into my little family until i have no more else to give;
My family truly changed me to the complete opposite of EVIL, as now all i want to do is LIVE
I now have a lifetime without you ahead of me, but i guess its finally time i started a new chapter, and try to fill this one with fun, joy and laughter;
I guess my nan was right, my life really did turn into a storybook, and my baby Boy is my Happy Ever After.
Poetry by Barry Mowles
My Baby Boy #Poem
Every time I see you smile my mind makes an ever lasting memory to remember and enjoy;
An unconditional love now flows through my veins when I look into the eyes of My Baby Boy
The first time I held you your eyes projected an image that immediately imprinted onto my very soul, it was one memory that will forever remain in my heart;
It was like my past suddenly faded away and everything from that very moment was a brand new start
You created a brand new me, you reminded me to focus only on the good things and to forget about all of the bad;
You are my greatest ever creation, and no matter what you achieve in life i will always be proud to be your dad
I already spend hours talking to you, i keep forgetting that you are way to young to understand;
I can spend hours upon hours just watching you hold my finger with your tiny hand
You may keep us awake all night, and I now have a living breathing clock alarm;
But I want you to know that I would now lay down my life before I let you come to any harm
I have never really been that close to my own father, and maybe that is partly my fault because deep down if I am honest we both never really tried;
But I swear to you right here and now, no matter what you do in life good or bad, I will always be right by your side
I will teach everything I know about life, until oneday my baby boy becomes a man;
Yesterday I carried you outside and as we looked up to the clouds I told you stories about your great Grandad & Nan
Oneday you will be the man of the house, and when that day comes I want you to be strong and find power from the sun;
Just remember to keep on smiling, and to always look after your Sisters and Mum
But we have an entire lifetime ahead of us, a lifetime to make a million memories for us to all remember and enjoy;
So all that is left to do is seal this letter with a kiss, and sign it with love from Daddy to My Baby Boy
Our modern world is changing, and everyone is busy blaming the youth of today;
But how can we blame the future, when it was us who made their world this way.
Our street corners are full, as our children think that it’s okay to walk into the darkness with a knife;
When did we stop teaching our kids that the greatest ever gift, is quite simply LIFE.
Footballers earning a million pound a month, whilst children in Africa sit crying their hunger pain;
Pier pressure is weighing down our future generations, as they begin to buckle under the strain.
Our children are now living in a virtual world, with MSN, Facebook and Twitter, they no longer need to speak face to face;
If only they knew time was so valuabl
e, and a lost childhood is the one thing that no one could ever replace.
Girls desperate to be thin, as their air brushed idols kneel at the toilet throwing up their breakfast, lunch and tea;
A silent generation sits texting on the latest mobile, whilst playing their PS3.
Faces hide behind hoodies, but not all youngsters want to go out and cause a riot;
Each of us is born with a hidden gift, but our future children have just forgotten how to find it.
We are leaving a broken planet to our children’s children, whilst our Governments just spout hot air, adding to our global warming;
With the worlds ice caps still melting, and our wildlife slowly disappearing, this is starting to sound more like a global warning.
Older generations demand respect, but its one way traffic, as respect back is something they do not show;
Instead of teaching our children how to fly, we tie them down with yet another ASBO.
Frustration and neglect flows through the streets of this concrete jungle, the one place that we now all call our home;
Bullies and racists still torture their victims, leaving them to cry in the shadows, all on their own.
Plastic surgery changing bodies, changing faces, as the years pass the dreams we all had as children slowly fade away;
Before long the dawn of a new generation will begin, and no doubt people will still be blaming,
The youth of today.
