Best Poem of maria goodison

Father

Mother said I have to let things go
and call you father, daddy or dad.
The anger swells within me so
at having to think your the one
I've been looking for.

My childish dreams
have been torn asunder and 'why? '
is all I have left to wonder?

Asking why were you never there?
Was it me that made you leave?
Why no letter sent, no phone call made?

Mother says to mend the bridge,
to let things flow and flowers to grow.

I'm sat across from you now,
trying to keep the smile there,
struggling to keep
my fist from tightening ...

Dragon King

He has sleep so long and does not wake when I
call.
Did they know to keep the dragon King asleep would be
there undoing.
To bind him with spells and iron change did they think he would
not brake free.
yes I claim I did help for my King did not awake when his queen
called his name.
All the demons of the past play in his eyes, and his wings lift and stretch

[Hata Bildir]
