Life Decisions

Poem By Daniel Murphy

Money dwindles while time flies by,
These two most precious things.
The ticking of the clock goes by,
A life with each it brings.


Time waits for no one,
Nor does money grow on trees.
The burning of the pocket flames,
From which your money flees.


Money makes the world go round,
So try to be on time.
Each second means a lot of dosh,
Being late can be a crime.


Time’s a real good healer,
Though money speeds things up.
You dry your eyes with banknotes,
And have tea in a golden cup.


Money makes life sunny while time lets you tan,
Although as great as they can be.
Spending them with loved-ones,
Will fill your heart with glee.

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.
