Until One Day

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Two
Ribbons
Of mist
Hang
Twirling slowly
Around him
Sitting
Silent
In his cage
A cage of
Gold chains
And
Silver bars
Built of responsibility
Parenthood
Husbandhood
Manhood
The cage compresses
The darkness that
Fills it
Darkness surrounds him
Tries to engulf him
But the ribbons of mist
Twirl
Slowly
As he waits
Until One Day

Butterfly

Sod the camouflage
Be resplendent in the sun
Flutter high and shine

Rooms

thehouseofbailey

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Shacks stacked
Corrugated walls
Tetering high
Rambling high

Shambling streets
Congested flesh
Diluted souls
Wasted lives

One hundred
Million dollars
Empty rooms
Cloudy palace

Dimming Lights

Dimming Lights

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Lights in grey matter
Never reaching the day
Plans uncommitted
As the chance ebbs away

A refugee wanderer
In dream worlds and clouds
Where sparks can be realised
And escape from the crowds

Mankind Limited – Quote 4

quotescover-PNG-66

Would all the earth succumb to the concrete blanket of mankind? Was that the best legacy they could leave? Was their vision that limited?

One day there would come a time when it would be more profitable to tear these trees down than to leave them. Then there would be no power on earth that would save them. Even concerned consumers couldn’t stand in the way of profits anymore.
