5/16 A Day in the Life Of Empty The Lightening Tree.

Post  Fred West on Mon May 16 2011, 05:55

. The Lightening Tree......fred west 2007 October 10, 2007 2:28 AM ©
my time on earth is nearly done
at 110 this year will not make another one
no birds come to nest in me because branches are not there to see
my mother is over 300 years and is next to me
she can only grow and shake with the grief of losing me
when born my sprout came through and she shouted oh my it’s you
from that moment on I started to live
her branches shielding from bright light
water dropping from her leaves to nurture me
then shielding again through cold winter nights
and then up in the air again when I was big and was free
there just was no tree that could get near to me
growing firm until that fateful nightwhen lightening came and thunder flashed
huge sound of lightening going through the field and struck my trunk and life had to yield
sparks and flames were blown off me then I looked down and there were men putting out flames from branches on me
the pain was intense and they stared back to see
now it is long past when that day was here no birds came near to me perhaps it was fear but more from the smell of dying and decay no one can save me
no one wants too my mother is there and she shivers with pain
but she can see decay in the trunk on the stain
another year and I will be gone only bare trunk sits and remains
I know my body is bleached by the sun so now its time to make way for the new its time to give up and bow down to the sun
making way for my mothers new son let him mark his way in this life
my time has come to give away this place of honor now I hear my trunk begin to crack...goodbye oh world says ...I

The Wishing of a Human

I went for a walk just the other day,
looking and searching for something that makes me happy.
To just put a little smile on my face and a song in my heart,
I didn't know what I was looking for so looked I continue to do.

Up over the light house the waves did come and back out to sea once more,
The birds are singing their song as the day goes on.
They seem so happy with their own little tune,
Only if I could be that happy too.

I sometimes sit and wonder what it would be like to be a wave,
to be in the day and life of that bird, would my songs be just as marry?
Would there always be a happy song to sing?
this I'm sure I will never know.

So through my life I'll continue to go,
through my life as I should searching and looking for that special....
as you should continue to be who you are,
Going through life as a human for this is what we are.

I’d come back as a cat






Life really sucks
I don’t know why I bother
My life is going nowhere
Neither one way or the other

Keep going round in circles
Never taking a break
They never turn the light out
So I’m constantly awake

All I have to eat are snails
And some stupid looking flake
You’d think they’d feed me better
I’m their pet for heaven sake

They only change my water
After it has turned dark green
How am I supposed to wash
It’s hell trying to keep clean

If I died tomorrow
I would have one simple wish
I’d come back as a cat
Instead of a bloody goldfish
