David Beckham Biography

I was born in Madrid, Spain. My family migrated back to Nigeria when I was about 3 years old. Today I live in Madison, WI.

I love poetry. I love the 'Arts'...Art is all around us.

I am not the Soccer Star David Beckham; but I do play and coach soccer as well.

I just turned 33 in July. That is how old Jesus was when he died.

I am happy to be alive and happy to have you stop by and read my poems.

I often try to take a traditional poem and give it my own touch. I make it mine. My talent is my words, my emotions come forth as my vision does in my works and in my words. At least I try.

My poem might not be Shakespearean, I don't expect it to. There can only be one William. But, I try hard to do works that will make William proud.

I have this practice that I have always followed. That is, 'Do your works' it might not be the best, but will be considered as 'One of the greatest of all time'

My unique vision I humbly share.

If you enjoy them, please leave me a comment, else if you see ways that I can improve or make it better, leave me a comment as well.


The Best Poem Of David Beckham

The Theory Of Absolution

Dearest Son,

Today is the day that you are born

Your eventual exception to the way I will raise you will remain

Hugs, flowers and kisses, everything that I have I give to you

I wish I could isolate myself from your life

From whom you are going to grow up to be

But how can I? … The apple does not fall far from the tree!

Therefore my apologies at this time of birth I offer

That my ideas rub off on you and cause you to be who you didn’t want to be

Or that my way of upbringing causes you to be a recluse

But you did all right for yourself as an adult but hated still some of my influences

In time, I would get older and weaker and you will get older and stronger

In time I will lose my faculties and you will get smarter

But label not my ways as foolish I beg of you

What I have, I will give to you … Food, comfort, life

In so far as not to our past we can return to change things, for that is foolish to think

But in time therefore, consider my actions and find them ‘blameless’

I too shall consider your ways ‘blameless’

But by this understanding, that we may pursue life in great fulfillment and joy

We have come together in God's time to create this story

I hope you can accept the outcome of your life on this day of your birth

Just this moment I should escape to safety, this many fantasies I care not resist I can relate to your poem entitled Mirage 'The thoughts of trust betrayed and sheep in wolves clothing, the one I thought I knew, and whom I gave my trust to, but turns out he wasn’t the one I thought I knew' I love the lines above. Somehow this could happen to all of us.
