Poem: Fuck The Labels!

 

 

Fuck the labels!

 

Oh but still I’m proud of my labels darling,

my god my mind is in conflict,

the times in which we live.

 

I am me,

I have the feelings of the labels

but have no idea why that’s reason

for a divide my dears.

 

 

I am female,

I am cisgender,

I am white,

I am pansexual,

I am an atheist,

I am an androgynous dresser,

I am a hippie,

I am Irish,

I am a nerd.

I am also human

but did you know

that at the start of time

I would have well,

that I just was?

You know divides are inhuman,

power crazed is inhuman,

and those who do divide

are immoral,

uneducated,

acting in an abnormal way

to being human?

and, though I can’t stand them,

I pity them so much.

 

 

In modern life we are our labels

but in truth we are all just us

and bigots are just them,

that’s the real us and them

that exists,

they have made it so

which is unfortunate.

Power crazed has happened,

people have become crazed to win

against other boxes,

sounds silly

but then bigots are immature,

power crazed and in love with themselves,

their problem occurs when too many labels

that they don’t like spring up

but when labels were made for their feelings years ago

they were chuffed,

and continued to be so,

no complaints.

I am proud of all that I am

but I also think it would have being beautiful

when there was no labels,

maybe it will go back to that

hundreds of years from now

and you know

that sounds pretty cool.

Poem: Rudolph

 

Staring through the railings,
animated chatter
and lots of activity,
people coming in and out,
take me home
but not just for Christmas.
I might be a pug
with a fierce face
but my heart is full
with love
and Christmas cheer
to last the whole year ’round.
My name is Rudolph
so I’m festive
throughout the year.
A family stop,
my heart beats,
they decide to take me,
we are each other’s Christmas present,
a present for life.

Bonds That Bind: A Short Story Collection By Austin L. Wiggins Review!

 

Bonds That Bind: A Short Story Collection (2016) by Writings by Ender and Beautiful / Losers Magazine founder Austin L. Wiggins is a beautifully written collection of six short stories: The Bird That Flew Overhead, One Man’s Sin, Radiance, The Outsider, Of Flowers and What Ails Us. The book is thought-provoking and asks of readers exactly how far their moral compass goes.

The characters in each of these collections share two traits: a sense of being flawed but also of being human. These stories have very realistic and relateable characters in extraordinary circumstances which many readers will hope they are never in. Written in a very accessible style each story drags you in making you want to continue reading to find out what will happen. There is a beautiful descriptive style to the writing.

The Bird That Flew Overhead has many stunning descriptive lines and is a great opener for the book. The tension and anticipation is very well written in this story and leaves the reader wanting to know how it will end. One Man’s Sin is an intriguing tale of a 40-year-old revenge and once again the reader’s attention is held brilliantly throughout. Although all the stories are great, the best in my opinion is the third story entitled Radiance. The plot is so good and so original. It is the story of George whose best friend Joe has had an affair with George’s wife but is now going to kill himself out of guilt. It is down to George to stop him from doing so. A very interesting plot and keeps your attention to the end as you wait to see whether George will show his humanity or not in light of what he knows. The Outsider is wonderfully written. It deals with quite a mundane situation. Derek is in The Pacific City Wind Ensemble and we as readers get a great sense of his inner feelings about being part of the ensemble and the different personalities of the members. Fascinating and an excellent commentary on human communications. Of Flowers is an interesting story with a bit of a James Patterson feel to it. From one best-selling crime writer to another the final story What Ails Us has a bit of a John Grisham feel to it. We follow Glenda’s story as Price interviews her and it is a cleverly written and thought-provoking plot.

Poem: A Dot

Look around at
the trees growing,
the flowers blossoming,
the ladybirds crawling,
the butterflies fluttering,
the dogs waddling,
the cats sleeping,
the fishes swimming,
the birds flying.

Watch,
a tiny orangutan swinging
through the trees,
a baby bear climbing up
a tree,
horses galloping,
donkeys trotting,
tiger cubs running,
what do you see?
what do you realise?
Us humans are but a dot
on a varied earth
full of beauty,
isn’t it nice to be
a part of it?
