Allegorical Poetry

 

We are both on a seesaw
and you are higher
so you think
you can see more.

Look up at the stars now;
beyond the darkness,
beyond the park,
beyond our town.

Maybe this is where
answers are found –
ideas in the night sky,
dancing around.

Just because I am lower
doesn’t mean I am cast down
and when I get off this ride,
you’ll hit the hard ground.

When I was seven I started copying poems out of a book and telling people they were mine. When I ran out of good ones to copy, I had to start writing my own. I have been performing and organising nights on the UK spoken word scene now for over seven years and am most of the way through writing the first draft of my first novel 'Zedlist', which is serialised on here. As the story is in fetal form, any critiques or suggestions are most welcome.
