Beggar's Belief

Poem By Daniel Murphy

Yesterday is gone
Look forward to tomorrow
Yesterday I had to beg
Today I have to borrow.


Today is gone
Tomorrow is nearing
In hours to come
No judging, no sneering or staring.


I’ll buy myself new clothes
A bag and shoes to match
I look forward to tomorrow
No road to walk or bus catch.


I’m going to spoil myself
It’s what I so deserve
I’m glad I bought that ticket
No more sleeping on the kerb.

It's time for another day
When the sun chases the darkness away.

The light creeps through.

Brought about by madness
He takes a loaded gun.
He wants a bloody frenzy
So takes more than just the one.

Is it not love
That calls out your name?
Is it not love
That eases your pain?

Strip away the cloth
Reveal your natural layer.
Bear no man-made garment
Display your skin and hair.

Mirror, Mirror

Vanity you’ve come to know
So much so you’re called a pro.

A high-pitched scream with every pimple

Arena Of Love

Battered little heart
Look how you’re bruised
You took such a beating
To which you are used.
