MIDNIGHT POETRY – ‘Life With Nikola’

All the very best to Nikola
That is what we call our car
Our road the one less travelled
By the standards of society

The reason for the celebration
Driven over hundred thousand k’s
Mostly on the energy of the Sun
Last five years flew like a bird

Recharging our life force
Simple yet advanced
The tech way forward
For the safety of everyone

Step on the pedal
Only move a finger
Automation in operation
Jolt into the head rest

Rest and rest assured
The road rules followed
Arrive rested on long trips
The driver without a fatigue

Pile of choice in podcasts
Music genres of all sorts
Big entertainment screen
While charging and parked

Regenerative brakes last
For many more years
Nothing but tyres to fix
Toast to Nikola’s abilities

Many more years
Many happy journeys
Many more memories
Experiences of a lifetime

Keep on driving

MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Resistance’

Yesterday you
Pushed my buttons
Drawing up resistance

Years long in the past
Rushed back to the light
Me being the child again

Having said what I did
Feelings and commotion
Overtook my body

Today with reflection I
Make some sense again
Out of this nonsense

Brain still attached
Please accept
My apology

MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Being Fair’

Correct me if I err
Prove me if I’m wrong
Going about being fair
Makes us humans strong

Talk to your folks with respect
Love your neighbor and his cat
Ditch attitude of neglect
And stop what makes you fat

Until you get what you desired
At times you might go without
Focus on feeling its acquired
As if the future was no doubt

Feel it now!

MIDNIGHT POETRY – ‘Loss Of Identity’

Stress levels on the rise
Coping skills on decline
Without work for a while

Stability of the mind
Split into more parts
Losing my identity

Attachment to a job
A frame of reference
Giver of a personality

That known character
Always sticking with me
Career that did not last

Past my redundancy
Money quickly vanished
Who is that person now

Alarm clock went in the bin
Staring at me from the mirror
Someone I have never been

Newness of my search
The person I did not meet
Who now sleeps in my bed

Lose all ties to the past
Tell grief it is fired
Now totally useless

Once I discovered
The being called ‘me’
The unity of I

Reinventing oneself
The true adventure
Only just started

Priceless
