“Limitless” (poem / poetry)

Life sometimes has a way of pushing our buttons,

Which in turn might trigger our own self-destruction,

It bubbles and boils, ‘til the goodness is gone.

“Opportune” (poem / poetry)

When a window of opportunity arises,

Be ready to act, lest someone realises,

And makes use of the moment before you,

Turning what should be yours, into their good fortune.

“Reach” (poem / poetry)

Even when our hearts are in the right place,

Some people won’t welcome us, we’ll receive hate,

Don’t take it personal, just give them space,

They may come around, if they don’t, it’s okay.

“Alien Intruder” (poem / poetry)

People hearing that, may mistake the phrase to be cute,

But my base was infiltrated, no clearance was granted,

Nor would it be, as you want my well-being supplanted.

“Proof Pending” (poetry / poem)

We extracted multiple clues from the scene,

Potential evidence, carefully retrieved,

Nothing’s yet conclusive, we’ll investigate further,

Fateful accident, or premeditated murder?

“Aspire” (poetry / poem)

Sometimes we desire to try something new,

Venture from our comfort zone, to fresh pursuits,

This takes great courage, it’s no simple feat,

To inspire and drive yourself, with belief.
