The Great Sphinx

Entranced by the size of this colossal structure
My eyes fixed like that of a fox in a headlight
As it blocked out the sun and the rest of the world
To this sphinx I was bait and it swallowed me whole

I stood there transfixed between towering paws
Looked up at its head that was missing its nose
In awe I felt part of this prodigious structure
As the sphinx is a part of the dessert it rules

Through the years it has stood and looked over Giza
What sights its huge eyes must have seen over time
As it slowly erodes from harsh modern living
It will always remain the true wonder it is

The Odyssey

When the dusk fades into grey
Strange illusions fill the sky
There I’m drawn towards the pale
Although in truth I live a lie

Here I blend within the shadows
Feeling distant, out of sight
Engulfed in liquid blackness
Distorted by the moonlight

Wild animals share my path
Striding through the hollow
Wide eyes sweep across the land
So familiar with the route we follow

Every step will bring me closer
To the dream I yearn to gain
Drawn from this aspiring forest
And onto the victory plane

The Portrait

There I stood and stared intently
At this old picture here before me
Someone’s portrait in the attic
I hadn’t known that it was there

I was drawn deep into his eyes
The subtle structure of his face
How those features seemed to woo me
In that small and dusty space

His expression appeared thoughtful
Carved upon a chiselled jaw line
I sensed unease in his demeanor
From the endurance of a lifetime

Who was this graceful gentleman?
Why was he in this place?
Once loved by many I have no doubt
Now simply a mysterious face

The Wishing Well

It’s without movement I stood
And watched the coin’s path
While so gently it descended
To the bed of the well
A burning wish in my mind
I spoke with conviction
And with all of my heart
Did I follow this through

As the coin ripples faded
Upon still water I glanced
My reflection cast back
On the mirror like surface
Eyes wide still glowing
With wanting, with wonder
As my wish I still traced
With each beat of my heart

What Noise?

One night on my knees
As I prayed to Sid Vicious
An eerie noise from outside
I did suddenly hear
It was immediately apparent
That it was not my goat
For I never have and do not
Own one you see

With a flashlight in hand
I descended the stairs
In a bid to unmask
The dodgy sound in the air
When I suddenly realised
Although quite unprepared
That I live in a basement!
Where did these stairs come from?
And why was I up them?

But the noise once again
Distracted me so
And so to it with care
I started to head
Only to discover
It was my goat drilling holes
But hang on…I don’t own one!

My Family

It has always been our family\'s tradition
To remain faithful to our hearts ambition
So as we encourage each other to aspire
We are becoming all that we each desire

There is no end of kindred reassurance
To instil in each of us a bold endurance
Upon our dreams we place no restrictions
Never straying from our hearts convictions

Without doubting questions we all believe
In every dream that we each conceive
Regardless if it\'s slight or extremely lavish
We all lend a hand to promote each wish

With soaring confidence and aspirations
We all await our goals with anticipation
Two brothers, two sisters and four dreams
Varying in substance, degrees and themes

Life’s vital lesson to help one and other
Was taught to us by our father and mother
So this family we look upon with such pride
Has made life’s journey one hell of a ride

Within

A sacred bridge lies upon my heart
Which bares a path into my soul
Into a land at the very core of me
A place that few will ever know

Here flowers of my essence grow
A blossom of all my true colours
Where my pulse is the birdsong
And the river of my blood flows

This sanctuary is my secret garden
An Eden of retreat from this world
It is here that I become the real me
The real person that I love inside
