Poem: Goodby my Mum


Empty I feel without you
Like a biblical figure
Wandering the desert
After the storm
The wrath of God
Swept the plains
Scorched  the lives of the
Children of the
Innocent age
Charred remains are all that left of


Scattered are my remains over a flat dry rock
Backing my face in the heat of ice
Burning cold is my heart in an empty night
Loneliness, the whole busy world
Becomes, without


Frozen tear drops on my
Cheek with the warmth of life
Dying in a silent


Goodbye my mum
My charred remains are
Scattered on the plains of
Irrelevant I become
Goodbye my mum.
