I stand here nearly swallowed up
Caught in the war of nature verses nature
Displaying power like a prancing peacock
Waves crashing its symbol to be heard
The cliff crowned in grass that dances in splendour
This proud tower weathering its opponent
Demanding its place
Staking its claim
Wind rushing to win
Surrounding all that may stand in its way
Fighting to have this place carry my name
Man encroaching on Mother Nature
Sticking a flag in like it means something
Blood flowing like oceans to claim what was never theirs
Wind laughs at my plans
His voice heard in thunder and lightning
Staring at all creation colliding
We will be here long after you.

You didn’t know him
and gaze at his beauty
and hold him closely
and care so deeply
and touch him gently
and need him desperately
and love him instantly
and loose him quickly
and fight so fiercely
and walk away despondently
And as I tell you this
and your pity builds
and I feel your sadness
and the question burns within
and now it spills
and can’t hold it in
and you say ...
time is a healer.

Breathe it in.
Drink it up.
Warmth trickling down.
Feeling its journey.
Radiating from within.
Surpassing all understanding.
Capture a moment.
Just for myself.
Quiet and peace.
For a second.
What sweet relief.

No you won’t die from the lack of sleep
No you won’t always pray to go deaf just for a minute’s piece
No you will never stop worrying (it comes with the job)
No you’re not a bad mother (crying is how they communicate)
No they don’t love him more than you because they say daa daa first
No don’t be alarmed if you find a piece of your crossword in its nappy (unless there is a pen too)
Yes at some point you will get a nights sleep (even if it’s when they're 18)
Yes it will get better
Yes when they are asleep you think they are perfect and can’t remember what you were moaning about
Yes they make you laugh till you nearly pee (that’s a side effect of childbirth)
Yes you will always be consumed by love for them
Yes they will make you the happiest you have ever been
Why do people return to the fridge and cupboards hoping some food will appear after they have already checked several times?
Why do we press harder on the remote control when we know that the batteries are getting low?
Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
Why do they use sterilised needles for administering the lethal injections to the death row inmates?
Why does Tarzan not have a beard?
Why doesn’t glue stick to the bottle?
Why are we supposed to park on something called a driveway?
Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars and then check when you say the paint is wet?
If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
