Don’t Drop The (English) Biscuit! By Danny Kemp

50cfe4a9e4d25ee93419e8a1d5d1f855.

A cup of tea with a dunked biscuit sitting on the bottom!
If that’s how your day begins, does it make you feel rotten?

Do you pick it up with a spoon then lick the spoon clean?
Satisfying I know, but it’s not quite haute cuisine.

Do you leave it to the end sliding it down your throat,
Then take a furtive look around whilst silently you gloat?

Perhaps you’re the innocent kind, ignoring the sweet remains,
Held back from recognition by some moralistic reins?

HOWEVER, if you never dunk it you’ll never know what you’ll do,
so there you are, I’ll graciously leave the decision entirely up to YOU…Boom boom.

Everything and Nothing, by Danny Kemp

e478c4233ff1d79f0bf50fce58b427c3

“Nothing is not always nothing,” said the wise man to the child,
“Because nothing can be everything,” he added as he smiled.

“Nothing can be your wish, your dream and your desire,
But only if you had everything and from that you did tire!

First you must try the reverse to know if it suits you best,
Then you have something on which you can compare the rest.

Fools speak on subjects they know nothing about,
While the wise examine everything with a great deal of doubt.

Dismiss nothing and everything will come in time.
To do nothing makes everything a crime.

Understanding, by Danny Kemp

0c2cdacf719c12c684399075fb7c2cb9

A bare barked tree standing dead against the sky.

Birds sit atop and their gentle song they cry.

The stream washes away any remaining roots,

While squirrels go about their own selfish pursuits.


 

An old woman stands alone, unable to carry on.

A radio blasts from a car, with a deafening song.

Traffic streams past, taking the breath from her lungs.

Children run amok, with foul swearing tongues.


 

Awareness will end for all that live and breathe.

Life is never the time in which we should  grieve?

From a birth to a death is a mere passage of sand.

Words must be read to truly understand.

Move On Baby, by Danny Kemp

b471c7f6b237be29484d44a3ef687117

I want to pick the flowers and taste the rain,
Forget this world and be happy again.
I need to forget you and set myself free.
Step away from this nightmare and find the real me.

Love is not always what it seems,
Maybe it existed only in my dreams.
But my dream crashed without a sound
Just like a bubble as it hit the ground.

I want to feel the sun breaking through the sky.
I don’t want to sit here with the tears that I cry.
I need to feel the warmth of a tender touch.
I want that pleasure that you gave so much.

Love is not always what it seems,
Maybe it existed only in my dreams.
But my dream crashed without a sound
Just like a bubble as it hit the ground.

If you’ve found love, then make sure it’s true,
Don’t be like me and let it lie to you.
Never fall in love just for love’s sake.
You owe it to yourself not to make that mistake.

Love is not always what it seems,
Maybe it existed only in my dreams.
But my dream crashed without a sound
Just like a bubble as it hit the ground.

It’s move on time baby, that’s what I must do,
Far away and removed from you!

Unspoken Love, by Danny Kemp

42a8621327ae14223e101fa086ab72ca

His heart is racing as her face he touches, but he’s holding on to his sanity.
His life is over unless the words she utters, break free from her banality.
Say you love me, his screams unanswered. He’s praying violently.
Unmoved she lays, hushed, unforthcoming. The words remain; silently.

A New Beginning, by Danny Kemp

3386a0ee5b5a8ae5ed843da37dc7c855

In these days of winter, when the frost lays thick and fast,

Does your mind drift unto memories that happened in your past?

Were they ones of happiness, did they make you glad?

Or are there lingering ones that bring memories of being sad?


As the year draws to an end, and a new one grows ever near,

Hold close those dearest memories keeping them strong and ever clear.

Cast away the demons that held you back from being you,

Then 2015 will be an ever better year for your memories to travel through!
