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... more »

Godfrey Morris Poems
Seek and Find
Life hides secrets to find Seek its truths and be refined
Why I Write?
My child you ask me why And so I give a sure reply
Though hatred rages against this noble heart With its deadly griping piercing claws Yet will I stand to face the green-eyed beast Standing against such infinite odds
As I look at life's closed hour-glass Of all the errors past
Hold on - be strong
There stands a tree! That dogged tree that clings ever firmly by the raging sea
Life is precious A gem on the sands of shores.
A Memory Lives
These memories wander in my head These tears of mine still lingers
The Pythagoras' Theorem by godfrey morris Pythagoras! Pythagoras!
The price to be gentle is sometimes steep And at times it even make you weep
Road to Heaven
The road to heaven is laden with a trail of tears A patchy path of peaks and troughs pattered by dust
The price to play is steep indeed, but reward to be had is more desirable. Greed is the drug that feeds all inhibitions; a gambler's reward is the only route to his plunder.
Nature Paints Nature paints the sky in blue, Then adds the fluffy spots of white
A verse am I, in a twist, Listen! You will hear, and get this gist
Day - Night Dreams
It is often difficult not knowing Where the wind will blow?

Seek and Find
Life hides secrets to find
Seek its truths and be refined
Life's safari reveals a map
an eluded path, go fill the gap
To survive the curse of old Adam's sin
follow truth, and be cleansed a thousand times within
thus to it do trust
In safe-guard winds in it do thrust
Search for this peace and be at ease
never let rest until life cease
Seek life's truth and you will find
a glorious ever state of mind
