John Lennon- In My Life
Thirt years ago this week John Lennon was murdered. This is just a short poem about him and how he is still missed but still very relevant today.
JOHN LENNON - IN MY LIFE
A life that's lived
Full. But short.
Poet. Talent. Writer. Fighter. Singer. Rebel.
Music reaching everywhere.
Every nation. Every emotion.
From Liverpool via Hamburg.
Changing the World.
Songwriting, Music, Fashion,Demonstrating, Peace Campaigning.
Man of great talents and great flaws
A leader. Charismatic and direct.
His home New york.
December 1980. Fateful Eighth.
At forty years John Lennon shot dead.
It can't be true. How can it be so. The World in shock.
His life. Affect on so many others.
What happens now.
Thirty years on. Still being missed.
What more he could have done.
Spirit lives on in others.
Inspired by him.
His own spirit and life
We can only close our eyes and wonder
