The Travel Writer

To cross the world; to see such sights
To taste new culture too
To visit, feel experience
To do, to be, imbue

And then to write; to share, to tell
To be at one in ink
The travel writer story bound
Forever forging links

A Mother’s Son

One minute, he was a baby
A small, innocent child
The apple of my eye and more
So tender, meek and mild

And then before I knew it
He’d got to six foot three
A strapping, independent lad
Leaving nest and family

Venturing out to greener fields
To take the world by storm
Whilst finding out for himself what
Path will become his norm

Creating his life on his own
His choice and making too
A fiercely independent chap
Striding to pastures new

Yet in his wake my heartstrings
Stretching from Mum to boy
With built-in elasticity
Connection to employ

A dichotomy or paradox
Willing him to go far
Yet feeling twinges and the wrench
Emotions slightly charred

But also by the same token
Being proud from job well done
With joy and thrill that’s just saying
“Become a man my son.”

“Become a man and blend your life
Make footsteps in the sand
Ones of contentment; happiness
By which you will then stand”

“And be compassionate with grace
Upholding honour true
For boy now grown up; fledging flown
I will always love you!”

A Mother's Son

 

If The Cap Fits

If the cap fits then please wear it
Though cautioned as you do
To understand that you will then
Take any blame that’s due

And akin to Cinderella
If slipper fits as well
Whatever mask you might then wear
Such fitting rings the bell

Or in the case of fingerprints
When image matches up
Admit that you were in the frame
And drank from guilt stained cup

For throughout our lives we walking so
Indelibly with tracks
That leave a trail of suggestion
To fill in all the cracks

So be sure to first acknowledge
If you have hidden guilt
For by your words and actions sure
The truth will then be built

And all will then unravel full
Right there before your eyes
Exposing just where you have been
Despite any disguise.
