The Lemon Tree


When I was nothing more than just a child,

The Lemon Tree was happy notes and dance.

I would skip around with the melody in mind,

A song purely delightful, at first glance.

 

But as I became older and the lyrics became clear,

I realised how tragic they were.

Bitterness and tears, caught in song,

And I don’t know which version I prefer.

 

But then again, sad as it is,

Perhaps it’s part of growing up.

When The Lemon Tree stops being sounds,

And becomes a story of two lovers’ break-up.

 

 

Soul Mates


The first time I heard about The One,

I got terrified!

Imagine just one perfect person,

To stand by your side.

Among seven billion people,

I mean that’s just insane!

So I believe that there are many,

Whose love would remain.

Through better or worse,

Through all that I might feel,

It’s about potential and hard work,

For soul mates… are not real.

 

A Viking’s Death

If you ask a person how they want to die,

Most people quite agree.

The best way to go is quietly,

Sleeping in, utterly carefree.

 

But if you ask a Viking, it’s a different matter,

As this is what they’ll say.

Die with honour and vigour, sword in your hand,

And it’s worth having to go away.

 

Away to Valhalla where you’ll sit among,

The greatest warriors ever to die.

Odin himself is sat not far from you,

As you listen to the battle cry.

 

So what will it be, if you had to choose?

Sleeping peacefully in, or the never-ending booze?

 

 

Writing

I’ve decided that I am writing a book.

Or at least that is what I’m trying.

Maybe it would be more correct to say,

I’m just keeping myself from crying.

 

But maybe I just need words to come out,

Instead of writing, I’ll try a recorder.

Then afterward I can begin to worry,

About the words and about the order.

 

I dream of a character, who’s funny and deep,

And all my readers truly adore him.

But for now, my only wish is this:

To not kill my readers through boredom.

 

And the hope that keeps me going is really quite simple.

The second book will be easier, oh, please God will it
