I am a man, that's a good start, and I am a married man with 2 children, one of each (that's a boy and a girl) ages 17(Boy) & 12 (Girl, although she's going on 21) I have been married and lived in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland for over 20 years.

Gordon David Poems
All We Want Is Peace (Please)
Peace, Peace, Please, Please, Peace, Please, There’s something we should do
For every When? There is a Why? For every push, there is a pull
A Full Stop.
I’ve lost a full stop, And I need it for the end I’ve lost a full stop, It’s driving me round the bend
I Feel So Tired
I feel so tired, I just want to go to bed I feel so tired, I’ll just curl up here instead I feel so tired, I just want to go to sleep I feel so tired, I’m sick of counting sheep
What is trust? Who can we trust? Can we trust our loved ones? Can we trust each other?
A Gay Virgin?
What am I thinking of? The past? A long lost love?
A Picture of War?
Do you know what you're fighting for? Do you think that you're gonna win the war? Does it hurt when another mother cries? Collateral damage as her baby dies
A Life At An End (The End Of Days?)
Hello again my thoughtful friend. I’ve come here to annoy you once again.
This is me this is who and what I am This is me throwing my toys out of the pram This is me trying so very hard to be better This is me shaking as I type in this letter
Don't Carry Knives
Stab me without warning As your phone clicks away
4 Score & 10
Please come and sit over here My life’s run it’s course, that’s all Don’t be sad, and don’t you cry Life’s been good, I’ve had a ball
Welcome to my world, this is my home With its ups and downs, agony and ecstasy Here in my world, where the sane are now insane It may be different, but we still make time for tea
44th Mr President
The USA has had an election Let's hope they have made the right selection We're all flowing in the same direction There is still time to make a correction
Life & Other Such Things
Is it better to give than to receive? I'm a thinker, and I now knowingly believe That I may not be as tolerant as I could I raise my voice a lot more than I should

All We Want Is Peace (Please)
Peace, Peace, Please,
Please, Peace, Please,
There’s something we should do
That’s not been done
Something we can win
That’s not been won
Something we can SHOUT OUT
To end all their brutal war games
We Want Peace
Case for war was fake,
Don’t let it fade
More lives can be saved
Got to be brave
Something we can shout out,
We want peace, and we want it right now
Talking is Free
All we want is Peace
All we need is Peace
All we ask is Peace, Please
Peace is all we want
All we crave is Peace
All we miss is ...
