Danish Prince

The Poets' Garret

The Poets’ Garret

A soliloquy questions life or death
One man’s desperate plea seeking choice
As he utters ‘to be or not to be’
The strain echoing in his troubled voice
And again as he draws into his breath
His crying eyes blinded by darkened clouds
As simple words spoken declare much more
To continue with life or to end it now
His knees bruised as they crashed on to the floor
With his mind crushed by depression’s shrouds
In ink he put so much pain in so few
Words; emotion charging out into the air
The bard of bards who carries the mind there
To a Danish Prince as his pain breaks through

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
