Unity

Folder: 
Simple Thoughts

"Tragic, 

tragedy can be, 

with repeating sounds of words, 

or screams and cries;

 

pain is a universal language.

Everyone knows it, 

this I believe. 

But,

 

even then, there's plenty

of discontent for which has and has not

been felt, 

as though suffering is to be measured.

 

I've seen it, you have, too, 

the pain of the neighborhood, 

tires slashed throughout, 

just another siren,

 

crying, 

at my end of the city. 

Such a pity, and then

the loud clash

 

of the car crash, 

one having smashed into the other,

and in this moment of pain, 

this tragedy,

 

comes unity, 

Humanity.

The unprovoked question

of the desire of assistance,

 

the rush to the scene 

seen by me

of the people who live on this block, 

calming the sobbing mother,

 

bringing the young ones out from the cold, 

the old man sweeping the broken glass,

no police having arrived yet.

Yet, nothing but pain

 

bringing us together, 

celebrating that everyone is okay.

 

Silver lining, 

pain unites,

every little thing

is going to be all right,

 

the radio said so."

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I recently was invited to be part of my local Lululemons UNTITEd States campaign, and I had such a blast. This is my poem for the them "unity", aptly named.

Ready to be happy

I stay up wondering when will the time come

I ask myself why not me

I see others with such joy and happiness

It's as if that joy was not meant for me

I know she's out there but when will we meet

Its only a matter of time i hope

For that happiness I see i want for me

Another Night Alone

Verse 1:
I won't spend another night alone.

If it's not you no one else can do.

'Cause we belong together,

You're my shooting star.

 

Chorus:

 All this time, I spent with you:
These memories will never die out.

'Cause I know you by heart,

Wherever you will go, I'll follow you.

 

 Verse 2:

Now, the time has come for me

To put myself into your hands.

'Cause you gotta know: We belong to each other.

Our hearts are continuously set in the afterglow.

 

Bridge:

If you and me, if there's a possibility

Of beconing one with you,

Let loose and come unto me tonight.

Fall apart or hold on tight.

 

Last-Chorus:

Every time the phone rings,

I expect it to be you.

I spend each daily liviing like this.

Won't you take me home tonight?

Love’s fate

 

 A girl I met a match in heaven,

 More dark as me could be no better than my old lucky number seven.

Our lives started so grand the faults so small,

Being without each other just makes my skin crawl.

The people came against us one by one,

As every year that past we became that much strong.

Almost seven years now under our belt,

When she is not drinking she makes my heart melt

To wake every morning her face I first see.

The feelings in my heart larger than the sea.

To realize after time I have choices make,

 These choices so hard that will certainly control our fate

A Holiday Experience:

Folder: 
Seasonal Holidays:

I have to say the best holiday I have ever experienced was a weeks holiday in West Wales, in the seaside resort of Tenby.


Several of my family members and I went on this week long holiday to Tenby: we shared a three bedroomed apartment; there was also TV, so I was pleased.  Our appartment was over looking the beach at Tenby and the sea coast, also surrounding woodlands; filled with birds and wildlife.


As soon as we had unpacked we all agreed we wanted to experience the sand on our feet and between our toes. We all made our way down to the beach and scrunched through the dry sand with our feet: grains of sand were hot underfoot, as the sun beat down in glorious rays along the beach.

We ventured further down the beach and into the sea; the sea was luke warm on this very hot day in Summer. Remarking to others of my crowd;"look you can stand up to your knees and still see your feet in the sea water". The others in our party agreed with me, the sea water was so clear and not polluted by industry at all.


Looking back at the beach and to either side of this small bay was surrounding woodland; there were many types of bird prelevant there also varied wildlife.

You could see that cut into both sides of the beach and amongst the woodland  track had been carved out: where people coulld walk amongst the woodland slopes of pine, fir and oak tree. swooping seagulls were evident too, but these seagulls mainly swooped down at the ocean, hoping to catch a fish maybe!


Venturing off the beach area now and walking towards the East of Tenby; we came across a small restaurant, on the outskirts of Tenby. Commenting how much real fresh air we had enjoyed, we all agreed fish or cold meat salads were in order. Of course and a big pot of tea, which we all enjoyed, followed by some ice-cream. Having eaten our fill, we decided to have a walk around Tenby for a few hours: we had a bit of shopping to do, floats, armbands, beach ball, surfboards and not forgetting the beach mats.

As we were staying for a week we thought it might be expiedient of us; to shop at one of the local supermarkets for grocceries and get a couple of taxi's back to the appartment. I also bought myself a straw hat, to keep me cool and to protect me from the sun.


Returning to the appartment with all the shopping did not take very long and the sun continuing to shine; as indeed it did the whole week we were there: we decided to have a barbeque.

One of our party was very good at cooking on a barbeque so we all left the cooking to him; whilst we all arranged the buffet to go with it and of course long, cool drinks.

By the time we had consumed the barbequed food and with the sun eventualy setting we drank the cool drinks and soon felt sleepy. What with the heat of the day, paddling, a long walk and shopping also all the fresh air and hot sunshine we had inhailed, it all had a sleepy effect on us.


Tommorrow my nieces' had promised to show me how to bodyboard on the open sea.One consolation was that you lay on the board, not standing as in surfing.


The rest of the sun drenched week passed very pleasantly; but after many years of no holidays, this first day of my family holiday I remember very well, as the sheer beauty of the place intoxicated the person.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside. Good company on holidays is a must too. Great holiday. Thanks mum and family.

Once Upon A Midnight Dove

Folder: 
Just a thought!

Once upon a Midnight Dove, I sold my soul for empty love.

A gentle touch made me shiver, my body shook, my nerves quiver.

 

Her skin so soft with silky hair, parchment kisses melt the air.

She pressed her tender frame to mine, body waving so devine.

Passion rose in sultry hips, the sweet caress of moistened lips.

Shallow breaths quickened fast, heartbeat shutters, swift and vast.

Beads of perspiration now, a single stream runs down my brow.

Muscles clinched in violent peace, giving up in sweet release.

A moment shared in empty love...Once upon a Midnight Dove'

*A Baby Boy*

Summer 2000 
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins


Wow! A bundle of joy 
Great times 
Gorgeous smiles 
You're having a baby boy 

 

Give the kid hugs and kisses 
Have a great time with your baby 
Soon he'll find a misses 

 

So share this time to talk 
To share secretes with 
Take pictures 
Because soon he'll be crawling 
Soon that'll be a myth 
Bacause soon he'll be walking 
Memories are forever 
You'll never want them to end 

 

A baby boy 
What are you going to name him 
Once he hits one 
He'll have lots of toys 

 

He will have temper tantrums 
Yes your little sweet boy 
So remember to pamper him 

 

Soon he'll be a big boy 
He wont be your little one 
Make sure you take him to the shore 
One day soon he'll come home with a lady 

 

Give him all the love 
Don't worry he'll always want more 
You're his one and only mom 
You're the one he'll adore 

 

A baby boy 
Thats great news 
Make sure you make a shelf 
For all his shoes 

 

Have fun.... 
With all the crazy times 
Because with your baby boy 
Joy will never be done 
He'll look like you 
That's not a false statement 
It'll be true 
You watch 
When he is born 
You two will be a perfect match

*You Are My Fire*

Novemeber.3.2001
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins

You are my fire
You are my joy
You are my only desire
But why do you play me like as your toy 

I'm a person not a medal to show around
I have feelings too
At first I thought it was love i found
But all this time i should of knew


Now I know
Now my feet are on the ground
The way you made me feel I'll show
This time you'll be wearing the frown
You'll be the one to cry
I'll be the one to wear the crown
And you'll be the one who'll want to die

 

You are my fire 
I trusted in you 
But you are just a lier
Stupid of me to think your heart was true
Now i'm going to be higher
And you'll be down and blue

 

You hurt my heart 
When you dissed me for your friend 
You said nothing can take us apart
I guess that was all pretend 
You really never loved me from the start
I guess I can say we're over this is the end 

 

You are no longer my fire my love
You are no longer sweet
You weren't the one God sent from above
This stupid game you play I will beat

 

You are no longer my desire my dear
You are no longer innocent
What has come true is your biggest fear
I realized to be we are not meant
And through your heart is a spear
And my love this time I haven't sent
