Be Your Own Hero

 

These words I leave for you,

In hopes it will guide your soul

Throughout the night

And by morning light,

May all you troubles

Worries and sorrows

Pass by,

And you will be ….

YOU, Once again!

connect to yourself as one

allow great things to happen,

be in the present moment,

show self-love,

follow your higher spirit,

accept the “what is”

live life to the fullest,

catch a star, dream on it

be as you are…

Manchester, UK

ow To begin with I usually do not write or discuss world events but I feel I need to speak out for the victims and their families of Manchester. I am shocked and sadden by the actions of ISIS and the bombing of innocent children and others in attendance at the Ariana Grande concert. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as we mourn the loss as a world of one.

The loss

The loss of a child, is the worst pain
It shatters lives, it ruins the soul
We have no answers, to the question
“Why”

We have no explanation, to the reason behind it all
We have no one to turn to, even our loved ones
Sometimes do not understand, our pain

We try to look to God for relief
But sometimes, we feel as if
God doesn’t even understand
Nothing can take the pain away
Nothing can stop the tears
Nothing can feel the emptiness
Once a child is chosen

All we have left is to live
For all we have, in our hearts are memories
And knowing that the precious child is an
Angel with God
And someday
We will all get to hold
Them once again.

The Victims of Manchester, UK

I don’t know your names
Nor what you look like,
I don’t know your favorite color,
Nor your favorite meal,
I don’t know when your birthday was,
Was it spring or maybe fall,
I don’t know your age,
Nor the color of your eyes,
I don’t know the color of your skin,
Its what was inside, that counts,
I don’t know your religion,
For I wouldn’t care anyways,
I don’t know if you died alone,
Or did someone hold your hand,
I don’t know if you will ever overcome,
Such tragedy, so unfair cruelty…

But I do know,
That you will forever
Be in my thoughts
Deep within my heart
As I lay my head down to sleep tonight
I say a little prayer for you.

Drinking From The Sane Water is the first collection of poems from the poet Vincent Topp.All moods are accounted for, the hidden and the obvious.

Review: 5 *

Vincent’s poetry is the type of poetry that will harness the soul and grip the heart and make you want to question everything in life. His emotions are strong throughout the book and the imagery he paints is one that flashes before your eyes. I truly enjoyed this book of poems! I would recommend to anyone who is a lover of words, life and enjoys exceptional talent of penning the poems.

Please Don’t Ask by Lyman Ditson

Blurb:

Please Don’t Ask is an eclectic mix of spiritual and secular poetry written by Lyman Ditson. You will find inspirational as well as comical work in this book. Do not be surprised by the occasional critique of situations that are happening in the world today. Two poems, “Cricketland” and “Adobe Land” will seem very familiar to those who know Austin, Texas, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The inspiration for these poems comes from not only a deep commitment spiritually but also an awareness of how day-to-day life can be affected by things outside of our understanding. Please Don’t Ask is enjoyable both as a casual read but will also be of interest to students of life in general. Please Don’t Ask is suitable for readers of all ages and all students of life.

Review: 4 *

The poems in this book are mystical and mysterious in spiritual and secular way. Lyman’s writing was whimsical and fun to read. His poems touched on spiritual feelings in a secular world of ideas, thoughts and emotions. His imagery was will painted and the rhythm flowed nicely. I would recommend any one to read this book of poems.
