1  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Elephant on: December 15, 2017, 04:58:32 AM
We tell each other legends of when the Giants walked the Earth
The monumental creatures from the past.
Yet we seem determined to extinguish anything that is left
Like a virus we destroy what ever is in our path.
Many creatures of beauty will not be seen again
Due to the actions of mankind
There are many more who are facing steep decline
As our species continues to find
New ways to destroy the world that we live in
By poaching, pollution and war.
If we remain on this path there will soon be nothing left
Except faded photos of the world we knew before.

Straight out the windows the music blares
As we speed down the interstate.
Thereís still a thousand miles ahead on our three day trip
So we keep on driving straight.
Straight through the hearts of Texas and Nashville Tennessee
Only stopping briefly as we pass
To pay tribute to the legends like Johnny Cash and Elvis
Who inspired us all to pick up our guitars.
As we may our way through Carolina, Dolly Parton starts a-singing
Jolene Jolene on the radio.
We sing along in unison and yet we keep on driving
The volume up as loud as it can go.
We arrived before we knew it, in grand old New York City
There was sadness as our drive came to a close.
As it is not the destination, but the journey that is important
When you are surrounded by the ones you love the most.
3  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Glitter on: December 12, 2017, 05:25:06 AM
Together we lie on the cold stony bank that stretches out into the lake. We awkwardly humble in the dark to find each others hand before linking our fingers and giving each other an affectionate squeeze. The ground may not be the comfiest around, but it is dry and any displeasure that it may have caused us is instant redeemed by the sight that we see before us. For the past three years I have been returning to this place and I donít think that I will ever become immune to the charms of the Adirondack stars. The sheer magnitude of the milky way as it shines directly above us and reflects off of the lakes surface is enough to bring a tear to my eye. I turn around to face you and I can see the stars sparkly like glitter in your eyes. A single tear runs down your cheek as you too are overwhelmed by the pure and natural beauty that we are witnessing. No words need to be said for us both to appreciate how lucky we are to share this moment together. To witness the universe in all of its glory and to say that for a short period of time, this was our home.
4  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Skate on: December 11, 2017, 07:21:47 AM
I canít quite remember how old I was when I first wore a pair of skates.
I think I was about seven or eight.
I remember going round in circles in the garden of our house
Never having enough room to move straight.
There was a wonderful short period when everyone at school
Had their birthdays at the local gym and centre for sports.
We all would bring our skates and race each other
Speeding up and down the basketball courts.
We never really learned to match each others speeds
So we never got the chance to converse
As we sped past one another we would try and just show off
By spinning round or skating in reverse.
Last year I wore some skates for the first time in many years
And like a spell they brought me straight back to that age.
The excitement of my youth felt with the wheels upon my feet
I felt free like I had broken from my cage.
It is important to remember the simple things that brought us joy
When we were too young to know the troubles on this Earth.
So that we can return to our past happiness through the simplest of joys
To remind us what our lives are truly worth.
5  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Flake on: December 02, 2017, 02:13:38 PM
A pile of ashes on the ground
Is all that still remains
Of the worlds that we built together
Of our powerful domains.
We took it all for granted
And let them fall to rust.
Through ignorance and carelessness
We let our dreams combust.
We fought amongst each other
Instead of looking for support.
We treated progress as a competition
And so we all fell short
The Earth continues spinning
And we try to start anew
We brush away the flakes of yesteryear
And we promise to stay true
To the goals we set each other
When we first began
To look out for each other
And help our fellow man.

I implore that we pay attention
To why we failed before
To guard ourselves from our own mistakes
Before we make even more.
6  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Whiskers on: November 29, 2017, 01:33:25 AM
The days may be getting longer
You seem permanently stressed
But there is someone you can always turn to
When things donít seem their best.

A friend who stands beside you
When you struggle to go on.
The most loyal companion
Who will keep you safe and warm.

His fur will bring you comfort
His affection brings you joy
He will fight for your approval
To be a good boy.

You can tell him by his whiskers
And by his floppy ears
By his unconditional love
That grows stronger every year.

Yes there is a creature that brings light
To help you see through all the fog.
There is no love that is stronger
Than the love from a dog.
7  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Movie Theatre on: November 27, 2017, 05:59:56 AM
The perfect escape route
For a few hours of the day
Hiding in the darkness
Where to movies play.

See the spectacle and wonder
At the marvellous effects
Scare yourself a thousand times
Trying to work out who is next.

Come here with a partner
Or just spend some time alone
Either way you will find comfort
In the familiar cushioned thrones.

You may have seen a masterpiece
And quite a lot of crap
You may have had your first kiss here
Sat sneakily at the back.

No matter what you have experienced
Over the many years that have passed.
Rest assured that going to the cinema
Will always be a blast.
8  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Dream on: November 21, 2017, 05:44:38 AM
I am a superhero.
I always get the girl.
I am a rockstar.
I have travelled across the world.
I am the saviour
Who will silence all the screams.
I am the King
When I live in my dreams.

I have the power
To right all of my wrongs.
I am successful
The whole world knows my songs.
I am happy
Content with how I live
This is the security
That my dreams can give.

I am a liar
I am a failure and a fraud.
I am filled with anxiety
I am always bored.
I am searching for a way out
I am desperate for a break
From the nightmare I am forced to live
Whenever I am awake.
9  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Paper Airplane on: November 21, 2017, 04:00:26 AM
He tries to hide his nerves
Behind a friendly grin.
He tentatively clears his throat
Before he tries to quiet the din
Of the unruly school kids
Who he has to teach without knowing them at all.
The life of a substitute teacher can be bleak
And like talking to a wall.
He skims over the notes
That the teacher left behind
And starts to pass down the handouts
That the class had been assigned.
At first things all turn quiet
He thinks that he may have won,
But that was the calm before the storm
And now the thunder has begun.
The first handout is returned
By souring through the air.
A perfectly piece of origami
Folded into a plane.
He tries to block out the laughter
In an attempt to remain sane.
These are the days he dreads
When he knows he has no control
But he dreams of the day where they respect him
That is his final goal.
10  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Nurse on: November 17, 2017, 11:32:07 PM
My whole world was broken
When you came into my life.
Broken hearts and false starts
I had fallen on my knife.

Yet somehow you saw hope
In this fragile hollow shell.
Helped me get back on track and you nursed me back
From my own personal hell.

For this I am forever grateful
And I hope you always realise
That you have left your mark and reignited the spark
That hides behind my eyes.
11  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Magnifying Glass on: November 17, 2017, 12:16:21 AM
He stares in fascination
Through the magnified lens
Moving his head back and forth
So that the depth of field extends.
He stalks around the house
As he searches for more clues
Today he is a detective
And he has no time to lose.
Every day brings new adventures
When he finds a brand new toy.
A tool his mother uses for her sewing
Can bring him endless joy.
He doesnít have any siblings
To join with him and play
But he has never let that phase him
As he runs around all day.
Happiness can be found
From the most random device
Sometimes it is best to just relax
And enjoy the simple things in life.
12  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Fountain on: November 16, 2017, 12:09:39 AM
Every day she reads the pages in her glossy magazine
Searching for the Fountain of Youth.
All the adverts seem to say
That they know a different way
But she has yet to find the one that speaks the truth.

She stares into the mirror and despairs at what she sees
The lines that show the life that she has lived.
They say it isnít right
And they tell her she must fight
To retain the youthful look from her teens.

She thinks of all the money she has invested in their lies
All the miracles they have offered for a fee.
So she casts them all aside
And feels a fresh bounce in her stride
For the first time in her life she now feels free.
13  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Zebra on: November 15, 2017, 07:22:51 AM
I have always dreamed of travelling
All across the globe.
Visiting every country
And driving down every road.

I lie in my bed just thinking
Of the beautiful African Planes.
Watching Zebras and Elephants
And the Lions rule their domains.

Every couple of years I make plans
To travel far and wide
But circumstances change more often
Than the changing of the tides.

So I stay on the south side of London
And I watch nature shows on my TV
I dream of the day that I will fly away
Knowing Iím forever free.
14  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Razor on: November 14, 2017, 06:42:34 AM
Every day the pain resurges from the scars around my chest
A reminder of what I try hard to forget.
The scabs have all healed over and the wounds have been redressed
Yet still I am barely balanced at the top of this parapet.
The tiniest of sparks and my mind is set ablaze
Burning up the ashes of my heart.
Countless alternate scenarios play out in different ways
In which I could have prevented us from falling apart.
My conscience may recover but the scars will still remain
The shadows of the razors blade
I pray for mental clarity to take away the pain
And that one day I will not be so afraid
To ask for your forgiveness.
15  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Court on: November 13, 2017, 02:24:25 AM
She never met the jury.
She never met the judge.
She only met the fury
Of a community with a grudge.

She never had a fair trial.
She never went to court.
She never had a defence
To offer her support.

She was never even told
The true nature of her crime,
But the mob got there way,
So now she serves her time.

Relentless misogyny
Brought her to her knees.
When she raised issues of equality
They spat back at all her pleas.

They say we are progressing,
But just an hour spent online
Can show a society regressing
Back to a much darker time.
