The inside of brokenness is dark and gritty. A place where pain resides. It’s not sunshine and roses. It’s not rainbows and flowers. No, this real. This is where heartache meets the soul on a journey of healing. This is therapy between ink and words. It’s called… survival.

The Journey by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 28. Price: Free! Words: 1,550. Language: English. Published: April 27, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
Life is full of magic, if only we look first to what is within. We live in a world that tells us meaning, reality and happiness can be found if we look outside ourselves; this is not so, and these poems trace a journey from the freedom of youth, through the prisons of attempted conformity, back to the freedom of adult anarchy. There is no escaping alienation in this world - so be free of spirit.

9 by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 27. Price: Free! Words: 1,220. Language: English. Published: April 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.
A Picture Frozen by Brent King

Each poem in this collection of my poetry from the past forty years is like a picture frozen in time: a snapshot from my life. Sometimes my feelings surprise me and sometimes they confirm me. Often they make me laugh or cry...after all, I am just an ordinary guy. I feel privileged to share these impressions with you; moments both lost and found in my life.
