Biography of Godfrey Morris
My name is Godfrey George Morris. I am a teacher by profession. I love to explore my world with verse, to make my imaginable expressions, brought to life. This I try to do by breathing life into words and live vicariously through them.
It is my ambition to become an authentic poet. I am most influenced by the works of William Shakespeare, who was such a genius. I Also like the works of Claude Mckay, Robert Frost, Langston Hughs and many other great poets and writers. I wish to be half as good as them one day, and so my journey as a writer begins.
I thank poemhuter for such a forum to express my thoughts and the world through my writings. I also thank you my dear viewers, my friends your support and critiques are very welcomed here. I only hope to meet your great expectations.
Godfrey speaks truth
of world's daily loss
dreaming desires hidden in souls
freed from the depths of sighs
rendered from the heart of minds
eluded dreams of pure mankind
yearning for a thought for share
seeking most soothing ears
promoting a verse to bear
earning grace's golden tear
at a lonesome heavy price
keeping life's true rejoice
surely now I speak

Afraid of the Best
I am afraid of this, though be my best
A cause of great concern
Will I see you soon or ever again?
I fear my best shall fade one day
And watch my ways descend
