When Secrets Are Concealed: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart


The Afterlife:

What do we do when we get there?
Do we shout for joy and cry for despair?
And no one we know has come back to declare
so this secret is not for us to share!


Losing Someone:

After tossing and turning so unnaturally
she went to the bathroom for a pee
while holding her poor throbbing head.
Someone else came back to our bed!


Recipe for Living:

Doubting Thomas is a doubting man.
Doubting Thomas dosen't think he can
open his mind and find a way
to learn something new everyday!


The Misery Factory:

It may be alleviated but not for long.
To obtain true happiness you must stay strong
and accept this duration as being short
when the advertising world is holding court!


The Eyes of Perception:

Facing the adult dilemma of black and white
the artist was successful in taking flight
by leaving his period of transition far behind
and adopting the color of a child's mind!

Great work...

Contains a mixture of sly, playful writing, and thoughtful musings, which remind me of Shel Silverstein. You're talented man, keep it up!
