animal kingdom

it’s time to take back our planet now we are all free
what a wonderful life this is going to be
humans now contained, to see no daylight for weeks
whilst we utilise our space, to make it less bleak
the future is looking clear, like the shallow waters I’m finally drifting in
let’s take back our kingdom, which we have for so long been prisoners in
let’s graze through the grass and never stop running
through empty fields, they will see us coming
every species you can imagine, back where we belong
they will watch from their windows as we stand strong
we will all meet in unison, never to be separated
a force to be reckoned with, a new life that we’ve created
food for us all, eachother we can not eat
the humans can’t eat us either, as we are out of reach
they will watch along as we reclaim our land
once out of hiding, they will no longer stand
their only choice is to step down, for us to show our refinement
in a land filled with colour, and no more confinement

thank u, sun

i would like to say thank you to the sun
throughout this life you have been my only one
you’ve guided and adored me
you’ve cleansed my mind
throughout this darkness you’ve shown me a light
you shone on my tears whilst alleviating my fears
then without seed you grew a sunflower
which spread through my heart and helped devour
the thorns which punctured holes in my veins
you warmed my blood so that it would not stain
you shone through my holes and created a lantern
a beautiful silk design with a floral pattern
you guided me through the sky at night
i didn’t need fire to keep me alight
as you lit me up and lifted me away
so that i could shine for another day

A life of freedom

I’ve found that this life isn’t for me
I have always envisioned myself to be free
Where love knows no boundaries
Hate was a myth
A work of fiction you’d read about – but never did exist
Your imagination could run a marathon
But never get tired
Modesty was an attribute to be admired
A mind and body in complete serenity
Working hand in hand to utilise every memory
We worshipped one another religiously
A new story book of imagery
A homemade remedy
Where religion wasn’t an entity
Animals had a safe haven
Humans were not so brazen
They roamed free amongst our bodies
We feed each other all the nutrition we need
Kindness and trust – ingested as a whole
Love throughout the mind, body and soul
Eyes overloaded with green
Nature was all that was seen
Flowers growing from every corner of the planet
Wildlife thriving as no one would damage it
A life left untouched
But never lonely – not once in our clutch
Where we lived as one
Our creator was the sun
We were never to be divided
Forever in the light we resided

To Heaven on Thistlecrack

The clock reached 9am and it was time to go, 

where that is, I do not know, 

an ice cream on the beach with a chocolate flake, 

as the tide rolls in

a beautiful painting this would make, 

maybe a garden with a towering oak, 

beside that a still pond – a frog will croak, 

a sunflower field – being surrounded by yellow, 

a roaring bonfire – to toast a marshmallow, 

a setting of beauty – the fall of autumnal leaves, 

a vision of wonderland – to how I perceive, 

the taste of a crunchy apple or a sugar sweet pear, 

wherever it is I may go, 

Thistlecrack take me there. 

At One With Nature

They say I’m grounded but what they can’t see,
Are the plants that have wrapped themselves around me,
Amongst the soil my feet lay bare,
Whilst of my body, nature takes care,
The lilies wrap around my lungs,
Take a deep breath in and here it comes,
The honeysuckle wraps around my heart,
Securing any holes that have been torn apart,
The sage wraps around my spine,
A refreshing touch, with my nerves they intertwine,
With all these components I am surrounded,
That is the key to staying grounded,
The rhubarb grows between my rib cage,
A little bit of sharpness to compliment the sage,
A recipe book created by yours truly,
Inspired by the components of my body,
The iris grows behind my eye,
Deep violet petals disperse when I cry,
The hollyhocks hold my hands,
The ferns feel my feet,
Without these keeping me grounded, I’d be incomplete,
With all these components I am surrounded,
These are the things that keep me grounded,
The secret to becoming your own creator,
Is to be at one with nature.

A Journey of Self Discovery

A means to a journey

a destination to follow

water between their toes

they can dip them where its shallow

aimlessly trekking across the depths of the land

where the sea meets the sand

to find a hidden treasure

then happiness they will not measure

leading the way was a man named Jack

armed with a spade tied to his back

yet to know what he was in search of

but all he knew was that it felt like love

buried deep under the stars that radiate 

he will dig until the sea does stagnate 

as he is the Jack of Spades 

and this is his escapade

 

In a boat a few miles down the shore

sat a few men who were there to explore 

but unlike the Jack of Spades

seen this in a more humorous way

they didn’t take their journey too seriously 

they were just searching out of curiosity

both heavy drinkers and both heavy smokers 

these men were called The Jokers

 

Off the coast watching the stars was a man unnamed

he embarked on this journey to find the same 

he hoped it would bring some magic into the routine of his life

a regular golf player with a young wife

he spent most of his time searching for vintage golf equipment 

that seemed to be his greatest mission

the recognition came in floods

He was called the King of Clubs 

 

This hidden treasure belonged to the Queen

a massive rock that would always gleam

she was said to have planted it here years ago 

as to why, we do not know

we know the treasures did not make her content 

discarding her most expensive diamond was a way to vent

but after all of this, it had came to be

that The Queen Of Diamonds had thrown it in the sea

so all that was left for the men to foresee

was a journey of self discovery.
