Poetry Thursday 260 - Easter battles again

Three poems this week all from a positive frame of mind so when you read them please smile.

Life’s battles

There are unexpected joys to be had,
fleeing from the shadows of the mind,
when one tests what purports to be bad,
emerges surprisingly, benignly, kind.

The balm of success however limited,
boosts self in ways quite surprising,
for setting targets carefully thought,
boundaries impassable now stretching.

Never stop believing you can,
even with evidence suggesting no way,
gird your loins and act like a man,
enter your being into life’s fray.

The above was purely personal and an indication that when things seem difficult don't give up.

Ovoid sweet reward,
for worshipping our Lord,
or is it more profit reaping,
from corporate devils dealing?

Image result for not another election


In the year 2015,
an election to change the scene,
no more for five years at least,
gives the people a hope of peace.

In the year 2016,
not an election but a vote European,
Brexit wins is this the end,
to negotiate the time to spend.

In the year 2017,
another election shot we are seeing,
May feels the power she has not,
bullet in her foot has she shot?
