Happy Days

 (for fighters and survivors wherever you are)
Unexpected sunshine through clear blue skies
Dad pushing swing kid shrieking with delight
Elderly couple holding hands very much in love
Break of dawn stillness silence before the storm
Another stab at freedom happiness
Reprieve from hospital stays climbing the wall
Hairless angels of mercy watching life go by
Happy days again reasons to be cheerful many
Fight another day
Twittering birdsong rumbling traffic chatter
Baby’s cry bike blasting by drop of rain bouncing off my head
Alive did not vanish from operating table 
Nor perish from heartache struck by lightning
at the door of recharged life
The lady is not for turning full steam ahead on the mystery tour
Not doing xmas turn convention on its head
Flush brainwashing down the loo
Declutter people things 
Emptying mind of negative thoughts 
My way to the promise land free happy at peace 
Past self naive alter ego mistakes forgiven forgotten
What awaits the little crocodile clear cloud
As she thunders towards half a century on planet earth
Events defined but not extinguish her flame
No ignorant bliss awarded soulless living dead
Lifting head up to observe as a child
Who passes by why
Love of writing first took root not shy away from the truth

About cho wan yau

Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands. Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on chowanyau@wordpress.com. Any comments or feedback welcome. Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
