Someone Took My Life

Poem By George Bernard Hough

Have I lived a good life?
is paradise for me?
I always saw the best in men,
my respect was given free.

I never hurt Gods creatures,
not knowingly at least.
He gave them life as he did me
favouring man nor beast.

I never robbed a fellow man,
or did his name malign.
I left him free to live his life
as he should have let me, mine.

But then he took away the life
that God gave unto me.
Paradise is lost for him,
his soul to wander aimlessly

In limbo till the end of time
when he will meet his maker,
who will ask the reason for his deed
which made him, a God`s law breaker.

When God bestowed a life on me,
to end at his design.
No man should think he has the right
God`s will to undermine

In Memory

We knew the time would have to come

when our loving pair, with god`s will done,

Is Heaven On Earth?

Have we already died, is heaven on earth
are we showing our mettle and proving our worth
are sins we commit as we live out this life
the ones that decide our paradise or strife


He appears from a hole with real intent,
acting alone? or was he sent?
He makes his way, a treacherous route
to see what this human beings about!

Global Warming

Global warming is harming our planet
and fossil fuels make this come true
by footprints of carbon from vehicles
even the ones that are new.


Slowly our world will end for us
Not with a bang and not with a fuss!
Slowly the sea will reclaim the land
No more, we`ll see, a stretch of gold sand.
