    Niamhs poems

    This is a poem i wrote back in october 2001 during an Irish Lit lecture in college.


    REMEMBRANCE

    Life so sad and lonely
    Full of death an destruction,
    Quite close to home, and only
    Peace of mind is in construction.

    With great fears of sudden loss,
    And sudden loss revealed,
    With only happiness to toss,
    The fate of the world is sealed.

    Two towers that stood grand and tall,
    Two gliding birds crash into a floor.
    Thousands die beneath its fall
    And bring the world into a war.

    School kids mocked, teased and jeered,
    Segragation within their neighbourhood,
    In twenty years we may hear they've cheered
    A saddened cry against a loss of childhood.

    Corruption is nothing but the beginning,
    Destruction middle, loss the end.
    And with a band of heralds singing,
    God his Angels shall he send.

    Niamh Anne king 02/oct/01

    Please let me know what you think.

    The Fall of The 1916 Rising

    He felt his skin go damp and heavy,
    As he watched his men grow weak and weary,
    As they were marched along the crowded street
    Towards the place where they and death would meet.

    Their hour of darkness finally met them
    As the soldiers placed there guns before him,
    He heard a bang and felt lead go through him,
    for then he knew he'd lost his pride
    As he felt the pain go up his side
    For then he fell and there he died.

    Dont worry about lifes torments

    Dont worry about life
    Dont worry about death,
    just think of lifes little things,
    Like the wonderful friends you've met.

    Just take life easy,
    And go at you own pace,
    Because i know it's hard to concentrate
    When torments make you busy mind race.

    Dont feel like you're being punished,
    Cause nobodys punishing you,
    And we all praise the little things,
    That create the wonderful things you do.

    You're the only friend that makes me whole
    And makes me feel good about myself.
    And you know that you've got us
    To make you become your true self.

    You know we're there to comfort you,
    When you feel sad and lonely,
    And you know we'll try for an eternity
    To create a place for you thats homely.

    Sure we'll always have the beach
    And the waves crawling on the sand,
    And sitting by those flames at night
    We'll always be at hand.

    Really good poems, Niamh! I like the rhythm and rhyme in them.
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    Thanks pensive! I enjoy writing poems but havent really written many in a long time. There are two more i'd like to post but my boyfriend has them at the moment and i've been trying to get them off him for a while now.

    I should maybe have explained the backround to them a bit. It first one 'Recollection' was written when i was sitting in my Irish Lit class in college just after 9/11. There was also problem in the north of Ireland about Catholic school children being prevented to walk down a particular road to get to school by protestant protesters and it disgusted me.They were only children! Its my reflection at the wotrlds problems and how we are causing our own distruction for silly reasons.

    The second one 'Fall of the 1916 rising' i wrote in my history class in third year of secondary school. Its, as the title suggests, about the easter rising in dublin in 1916 and the execution of its leaders, mainly Padraig Pearse.

    The third one 'Dont worry about lifes torments' was written for a girl who was my friend in college, who at the time was suffering from suicidal depression. It was to show here that no matter what we'd be there for her and help her through it.

    I am looking forward to read those poems. As for these three poems, though all of these are well-written, I will have to say I like first one the most. It's very emotional. My favourite lines:

    Corruption is nothing but the beginning,
    Destruction middle, loss the end.
    And with a band of heralds singing,
    God his Angels shall he send.
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    Actually i really like that stanza as well. I remember my friends in college saying that it catches you and makes you think about whats going on around you.( same friend when reading it first had looked at me and asked me if i was ok! was a bit disturbed)

    When i get my hands on the other two i'll poest them in this thread. i'd rather keep them all together instead of floating around the thread pages. I a bit of and organise feak sometimes.

    Exclamation

    I am sorry, Niamh, for not complimenting you sooner on a great poem! Sad but hauntingly beautiful, as Banshees are sometimes discribed in legends.

    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Oh... thank you so much Pendragon! but you have complimented that one before elsewhere! I think you said it was a nice little sad poem.
    you are the master poet here Pen, any ideas what i can call it?
