Biography of James Lee Watts
Where do i start? I was born in Birmingham and have never lived anywhere else. My writing was only triggered by a huge loss in my family; My Grandad died of cancer over the space of a few months after having 2 strokes. I wrote him a poem as a tribute and from then on i have been writing, for the first year it was only occassional times that i wrote but then i began to write more thoroughly over the last 1-2 years. Which brings me upto this date in my life where i'm begining to realise nothing in my life will ever be the same....
James Lee Watts Poems
All Across The Nation
All Across The Nation, Is Hunger And Starvation. All Across The Nation,
Children In Need
Once again its that time of the year, Pudsey bear is finally here, Donate some money to show that you care, How would you feel if your family lived out there?
Slit my throat, Slit my arms, Stab that knife in both of my palms,
Remember all those times after school, You would always mess around and act the fool, Those were the best time ever, I hope we’ll continue to be friends and fall out never.
In my heart you’ll stay forever, Fade away that’s a never. Your Shiny lock of hair,
A Word For Thought
It’s scorching hot and your whole family are having fun, Your bodies tanning as you lie in the sun, The kids are in the sea and your lying on the golden sand, And the beer is resting softly in your hand,
Watching From Afar
What is this statue of beauty stood before my immature eyes? From which part of Gods kingdom has she fallen? Does she know I have seen her? Quick, look down quick before she spies,
Soldiers, Murderers Or Heroes?
“Salute the flag! …Serve your country! ” is all we hear, But they don’t tell people about all the fear, Wondering whether you’re going to live or die! Getting up early hours still wanting to give it a try,
Don’t do it! Don’t put yourself through it, It will hurt and you’ll feel bad, You’ll feel angry not sad,
Just walk straight past as if I’m not even there, Because if you stop I’ll tell you I still care, So just keep walking on by, I’ve got to stop these feelings,
Larger Than Life Itself
Oh my god, she blows my mind, She beautiful and gorgeous; she’s one of a kind, She can mould and manipulate me, Into whatever she may please or desire,
The time that has now past, Is frozen forever; will always last, Unless the time consumes it like a raging fire, The pictures frozen and isn’t a lair,
How do I feel about the love you show? Do I feel the same? I really don’t know, And do I think about you all the time? Would I still love you through trouble and grime?
The Boy Who Never Stood By
I want to hurt them in so many ways, Hit them hard till the one of them pays, Kick them down; hit them now, Let that side out; but I don’t know how,
Find your target to curse with love and affection,
Pull back the arrow and point it in the right direction,
But don’t point it at me for I don’t want the sorrow,
There’s nobody who’s love I want to borrow,
I may be bitter and I may be twisted,
But it is because I was once ‘gifted’,
If that’s what you want to call it,
I loved her, every single bit,
You hit me straight in the heart,
