A New Dawn

* * *

Poem – Year of Blessing

I’m hoping for Miracles in 2010

Right from the Beginning until the very end.

Last two years have been quite sad

To see the back of them, makes me Glad.

 * * *

 I’ve tried but can’t seem to figure life out

I believe there’s a God, but sometimes tempted to doubt.

Why is it people who have the best intentions

Are locked up in what I call “Life’s detention”?

 * * *

 So, it’s a new year, it’s a new dawn

All bad memories erased and gone.

Miracles spring forth all around me

2010 – only Blessings I see.

Poem – I Shudder

Julie Harrison and Daughter


Poem – I Shudder

A few days after Christmas, a father shoots his daughter

Before killing himself, he also shoots her mother.

All because of a relationship that went wrong,

Twinkle of an eye, three lives – just gone.


The news reports a Custody Row over their child

How could he have loved his daughter and gone so wild?

Andy Copland’s daughter was only four,

when he sent her knocking on Heaven’s door.

RIP with your mum, little Angel.

FilmPoems are based on a part of a Film.  After reading, see if you can tell which film it is. 

FilmPoems (2) – What’s the Movie?


Angrily, he slits his wife’s face

She’s caused him so much disgrace.

Then she’s taken from her lover

Who searches the whole town for her.


Finally, he finds her in an Orphanage

The scar on her face, mars her beautiful image

He carries her out into the sunshine – she’s so weak

She holds him closely, but can’t speak


Mustering strength she whispers “I love you” in his ears

Then dies in his arms – His eyes well with tears.


What’s the name of the film?

FilmPoems are based on a part of a film.  After reading, see if you  can tell which film it is.  This is the first one, so I’m making it easy to guess the name of the film.  The rest might have you scratching your head.

FilmPoems (1) – What’s the movie?

As she walked past, people looked at her

Walking into the Posh shop, she see’s the manager.

“can I help you”? the manager politely asks

Elegant Lady walks forward with her bags.


“I was here yesterday and you wouldn’t wait on me”

The manager was recalling her memory.

“Big mistake” she says “Huge” – walks out, head held high

Leaving the woman stunned, as she charmed passers by.


 What’s the name of the film?

Maryam Babangida - Former 1st Lady of Nigeria

Maryam Babangida sadly passed away on the 27th December 09.  She died of Ovarian Cancer and her husband Ibrahim Babangida (Ex President of Nigeria) was by her side in City Hope Hospital, California.

 Tribute – Rest Peacefully, Maryam Babangida

Rest in Peace – Maryam Babangida

The former first Lady of Nigeria.

Not many people in life reach the age of 61

Your life should be celebrated, though you’ve gone.


Lots of negative Nigerian comments, recently I’ve read

My response to them all is “don’t speak evil of the dead!”

Ibrahim Babangida might have made the Nation Grim

As his wife, her duty was not to stand against Him.


Let’s look at the positives she has accomplished

Apart from empowering women, she was an Activist.

Including setting up  Maryam Babangida National Centre.

Maryam was one of the Great women we had in Africa.

RIP – Maryam

Poem – Here Today, There Tomorrow

Filed under: Poems about Life — by ladyelenauk @ 9:39 pm

Life is full of uncertainties. It’s the one thing that man has no guarantee over, but I’ll write this from a positive point.


Poem – Here today, There tomorrow

One minute your single, sad and all alone

The next, you can’t get your new love off the phone.


One day you come to terms with the fact you’ll never be parents

The next year, your driving with  your baby at the back of your Merc Benz.


One minute your threatened with eviction from your home

Not long after, your comfy and even buy a holiday home in Rome.


Split of a second someone gets Sacked in an unfair way

next job –  what’s normally a week’s wages, they now earn in a day.


The Doctors says its all over for you, nothing more they can do

5 years down the line, in life your still happily sailing through.


Then there’s those that had it all, lost it, and gained it right back

Anthony Robbins, Stephen Pierce, Multi-millionaires, back on track.


and there’s those that keep on saying “I wanna win the lottery”

They get lucky, win a few Million and get bankrupt in two years or three.     Doh!!


Here Today, there Tomorrow

May life treat us kind and keep us from sorrow.

Poem – Women and Size Zero

Plus Size - Model


Poem – Women and Size Zero

All women can’t be a size zero

Not even on a high profile Fashion Show.

Ladies can be a small or big size

& Still look pleasing to the eyes

Can I hear an “Amen” Guys, you should know.


 Here’s a day in my life being a “Slim Jim”

Counting calories, eating less, coffee without cream.

People say “your looking good”

I  day dream about food

In Mcdonald’s, phone rings – I answer, “In the Gym!”.


 So, ladies, We can’t all be a size zero

Stop tough diets, trying to be a Beauty hero.

Be comfy in your own skin

Lots of admirers, you’ll still win

George Clooney, Brad Pitt or Ronaldo.

A Star is Born - Susan Boyle

Poem – Lucky in Life

For some, it’s the story of “Rags to Riches”

Through the years, they built a strong Business.

For others, Fortune simply went after them

They never saw it coming – it just came to overwhelm.


Being at The right place at the right time, can make one a Star.

Maybe not a famous one, but still twinkling from afar.

One  lucky to have opportunity knock on their door

and use it very wisely, never to become poor.


Young (then) Naomi Campbell was spotted in Covent Garden,

Richard Branson worked hard from youth to make his first Million,

Paris Hilton has Fortune handed down by her Father,

Susan Boyle never gave up her dream, ’til she became a Star.


So,  lets hope at some point we get lucky in Life

and be a channel to end other people’s strife.

Hold on to your dream, stay positive.

There’s gifts waiting for you, that life has to give.

 I’m blessed to have you in my Life

You’ve shown me the meaning of True Love.

Clearly sent from the heavens above.

Love has only just begun.

Two hearts always beating as one.

Poem – You have the Key

life is beautiful


Poem – You have the Key

Most of the time we have the Key,

But we’re too stressed out to see.


You have no Job and you feel helpless,

But have you considered opening a small Business?


You can’t have a baby, you think there’s no option,

But have you ever considered adoption?


Your tired and don’t understand the purpose of living,

But have you considered a life full of giving?


We go round in circles, making such a fuss,

While most of the time, the answers lie within us.
