A New Day

Poem By Daniel Bates

Shadows of yesterday cast no light
Cause, forth into frey by morning sight
Heathen, beast, charlatan and foe
A new dawn of Sapians forgotten woe

Bereft of guilt and nights sweet sin
Twilights lament, is moros' kin
For tis' my friend in the rise
Where you shed nights guise

So be not disheartened or so undone
By yesterday's weighty metric tonne
Vanquish and unburden pasts dictum
Stand up, breath and Carpe Diem

What do you want?
What do I want?

A Modern Truth

A girl I once knew of beauties born,
But poison was she, and full of scorn.
The heart was right and depth within
But shallowness was all that shone.

Sweet Poetry!

To read a poem bares their soul,
O' love, o' hatred, o'death, o' thought,
It's within the words in which we are taught,
In these readings I become nigh owl.

Soul To Take

Not friends have I, that I can bare my soul
Yet in these words I can allow
Why? Why don't I have people to confide?
I used to, perhaps it's my pride.

Life's Undulations

The undulations of life find me sitting here,
Like hills in the peaks, rolling on until the end.
For now I'm alone, sad and full of un-cheer,
But, a light, my thoughts offer to lend

Poetic Justice!

What life giveth, can be taken away
Only a strong will can sometimes make stay.
The pleasures you work so hard to acquire,
The good times you have to admire
