I'm Going Home

I’m Going Home 

Pain and agony
Wash over me
Feelings of despair
Dominate my heart and soul
My senses no longer work
My time is short
I can feel my life draining away
The end is near

My Lord beckons me
Calling me away
From my wasted body
I’m going home

Fallen Gods, Magpie Tales #280

Fallen Gods

The sky is cloudy
No crowds to be rowdy
An empty square
There is electricity in the air

Crashing down from the cloud
Was a mask like shroud
Landing with a loud clang
The steel mask rang

Lying on its side
Just like the wearer had died
And went for a downward ride
The mask looked peaceful and serene

It came from the sky
In the blink of an eye
Like a fallen god
Isn’t that odd

A fallen god
With nary a nod
Landing on the stone
Bereft of the throne

Like a
River, at
Times fast and raging,
Other times it’s slow and peaceful
The best times are those spent in the company of loved ones.

Kindred spirits seek
Earthly delights,
And fluffy roughage
To bolster their
Gumption to get through life

Don't Worry, Be Happy

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

When life gets you down
Your face turns into a frown
Don’t worry, be happy

When a project seems lost
And the work is going to be tossed
Don’t worry, be happy

If you suffer from writer’s block
With nary a poem in the dock
Don’t worry, be happy

Live in the now
Strive to wow
And constantly vow
Don’t worry and be happy
