A World In Pain

We live in a world of hatred and pain, Full of fear and destruction of life, Mostly sunshine, but occasional rain, The sound of a gun or gleam of a knife. The seed of terror in the public heart, A media witch-hunt flying high, Tearing the country and community apart, A dangerous game of racial…

Castle

A military man of honour and pride, Frank Castle brave in constitution, But changed the moment his family died, Witnessing a brutal mob execution. Castle died and the Punisher was born, Dressed as black as the darkness within, A skull on his chest, where his heart was torn, Weapons in tow, let the war begin.…

Our Son

Before you were born, we dreamed of a child, Time again we consistently failed, The hope on which our dreams were piled, Our plans in fear of being derailed. With IVF the dark turned lighter, Bringing back the hope of having you, You were destined to be a little fighter, The lone embryo of a…
