Godfrey Morris Poems

Life hides secrets to find

Seek its truths and be refined

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

My child you ask me why

And so I give a sure reply

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.

As I look at life's closed hour-glass

Of all the errors past

The price to be gentle is sometimes steep

And at times it even make you weep

These memories wander in my head

These tears of mine still lingers

The Pythagoras' Theorem
by godfrey morris

Pythagoras! Pythagoras!

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.

It is often difficult not knowing

Where the wind will blow?


A verse am I, in a twist,

Listen! You will hear, and get this gist

Nature Paints

Nature paints the sky in blue,
Then adds the fluffy spots of white



Love is a rose

I am a poet
silently hidden in life's closet
with half-measured expressions
seeking to be made whole

Promise of a new day

My faith is weathering like the corps of a rusty iron
I think my extremity has been reached

You a fiend a fallen being

Once basked the presence

Come on time, be quick
quench this unfavorable fog
and restore tranquil bliss kindly
Come on time flow like the wind

The road to heaven is laden with a trail of tears

A patchy path of peaks and troughs pattered by dust

The Best Poem Of Godfrey Morris

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

Godfrey Morris Quotes

love is the most powerful weapon we have but will we ever us it

Time is one of life most Precious commodity. One that is needed to Find the true self

We must not live only for Ourselves For while we live Others die for us To live

We don't live in a perfect world But we can strive to claim Our own perfection.

Criticism is easier made Than solutions.

You will never know the limits of possibilities until you have exceeded them.

The world is a fantasy A perfect illusion That keeps getting older
