The Empty Vessel

Dark emotions encompassing your soul Smothering your very existence Every waking hour haunted by black emotions Hopelessly searching for what used to be Emptiness and loneliness engrained in your being. It is all you know, you are it, and it is you A black hole of despair, an endless song of pain Wondering... 

A Fisherman’s Day of Therapy

Set men upon the waterways with rod’s and line’s to fish Just gaining freedoms glory in a boyhood dreamy wish As they sit there by the waterside while the Robin sings aloud With their thoughts transfixed on nature shaded by the morning cloud As the Water Voles swim to and fro down in the reeds... 

A Storm called Frank

On a flood soaked plain they tried in vain To stop the river’s rising high With sandbags filling weakened banks As the rain clouds hovered in the sky The winds they raised to gale-force strength And the heavens opened wide The seas became a turbulent force At the rising of the tide Immersed with sea... 

Evolution

Evolution By Langdon Smith (1858-1908) When you were a tadpole and I was a fish In the Paleozoic time, And side by side on the ebbing tide We sprawled through the ooze and slime, Or skittered with many a caudal flip Through the depths of the Cambrian fen, My heart was rife with the joy of life, For... 

The Nepal Earthquake 27th April 2015

The Nepal Earthquake 27th April 2015 by/Tony Gorman Frightening as the earth rocked beneath their very feet As terror shook the buildings where so many people meet Tumbling crumbling bricks and mortar in a most horrific way Uprooting foundations by its force beneath its rock and clay It was nature’s... 

Big Bang or What?

Big Bang or What? Evolution of the earth is a mystery to retain The scientists will be adamant of their big bang theory claim Religions try to argue that their scriptures have it right While science DNA brings new evidence to light There are contradictions everywhere be it written in the scripts Or... 

A Future Script

A Future Script 12th January 2015  Freedom of speech be it oral or pen Has been a law instigated since the creation of men And those who oppose must have something to hide Afraid of exposure on their slippery slide For the power of the pen will defeat in the end Be it written in scripts, or in emails... 

Within My Skin

Within My Skin The only housing worth worrying about Is the skin that protects my bones As it houses all I have in life From all outsides undertones And inside my head there’s a brain To guide me through the day To tell me all that I should do And help me safely along my way And deep within the motor... 

Computerised World

Computerised World The older we get the more we can teach That learning for us is not out of reach For back in the past we’d write on a pad Of the things in our life that were happy or sad But as the times passed, we started to type A far distant world then Microsoft or Skype And yet we’d converse... 

A Trouble Shared is a Life Spared

It’s so sad to think that in a lot of cases of people committing suicide the signs are not recognised until after the person has taken their own life. Inquiries then take place but all too late and someone always says “I could see this was going to happen because of how the person was acting”,... 

A Change in Life by Tony Gorman

To overcome adversity is the hardest thing of all Trying not to slip back in those ways that at first had made you fall Each day when you get out of bed you focus on positive ways Averting all those troublesome things that gave you worrisome days And in time your new path in life will give you peace... 

Diego & Eoghan – A Poem by Tony Gorman

  A friend in need is a friend indeed As Diego showed that day His instincts brought him straight to you In a canine sort of way For he showed that he had of aptitude In adventures of this kind And with his big brown eyes he soon surmised That food won’t be hard to find For you fit the bill to...

Poets Corner: To The Outsiders

To the people with their piercing eyes, the ones who try to look in to me not meet my gaze, I didn’t want to end up on the streets I just lost my ways To the people who speak with their eyes, this was never meant to happen to me, it wasn’t in one of my dreams I became homeless after I lost my home,...
