Eyes searching


Eyes Searching


Eyes searching

Give light in darkness

Mine shaft dark.

Lead me out .


Words searching

Cut through opinions

Much like water

soaks through paper.


Ability shining

to talk to all people

the good and bad

the blessed and cursed.


reaching through rubble

organising future

speaking to you

points made on paper.


Cut through anger with reason

The cynics tongue with laughter.

Cut through arguments with smiles

Smiling through it all.


Let your lips curl up in pleasure

not down in angry gaze

Stride on triumphant,emphatic.

Energy fill you now.


In grip of happy wonder

In sight of a strong moral compass

Your enemies be brushed aside.

March on. Meet them all headlong.


The people who deal in fear

are not the ones to be near.

More to be encouraged

are those who's souls are truly nourished.

This is a great poem, Michael, And it focuses on the positive and how to walk away from the negative. I have actually done so in my life, and I can't stop smiling, because I am surrounded by more positive people. Thanks.
