Sandra Osborne Poems

War. And war some more.
War. And war some more.
No one knows,
What it's for,


It's funny how
You make me cry,
Make me feel
Like I'm a lie.

I will tell you now of a life of pain
An abused little child, thrown away. I’d
Explain all the hate, and laughter insane,
But you’d never believe a world would try,

Waves on an endless ocean,
Swelling and changing
Changing and flowing,

Woke up this morning, with some more new pains
Getting old really sucks; I hurt when it rains.
You won’t hear me say, “Wow, THAT pain is gone! ”
But always just, “Hey, why does THAT now hurt? ”

Not so different,
But the resentments
Are oh so real,
Hatred at the past,

So many
Different dreary worlds,
That it’s hard to make a choice,
Hard to choose at all,

I am here
among these lonely
tides of faith

You may not even know me,
Or know what I mean,
Understand my world,
Or hear me when I scream.

Funny, I’ve been writing
For a very long time.
I’ve written about love
I’ve written about hate

So go ahead rate me
With ones, twos or threes

This is a really bad poem, gonna get a “one”.
No, this is a really bad poem, a really, really, really
Bad poem. Hell I just threw up while writing it.
This is so bad. And I mean really, really, really bad.


There are things
I will never understand.
The pain, the hate that
exists within my life.


White ones, black ones,
Red ones too,
Brown ones, spotted ones,
One is Blue.


I wish we weren’t at war, I wish
there wasn’t any hunger, I wish every
child was loved, I wish there was no pollution,
I wish we had peace, I wish God talked more,


The flame crackles,
Spitting shinning sparks
And ashes and fire
Into the warming air.

A mouse
is nothing but
a small
animal of the world.


Looks like I'm stuck
with what’s called by some,
my own, poetic “voice”.
But I’d love to write

Yes it’s hard
To be strong,
All day long.

Pain in my feet
With pincushion fingers.
Blurred double vision,
Exhaustion that lingers.

The Best Poem Of Sandra Osborne

War Some More

War. And war some more.
War. And war some more.
No one knows,
What it's for,
War. And war some more.

The images seem
To rule the day,
War and Generals,
All the same,
All the answers,
Seem so lame,
All our reason,
Gone insane.

War. And war some more.
War. And war some more.
No one knows,
What it's for,
War. And war some more.

Sandra you have a depth in your poems that brings me onto this site to read everything you write. Have you published a book. If not then you should. You have enough really good poems to fill a good sized publication. Go for it. Don't let the chance pass you by. Hugs Janice M Pickett (Jan)

Sandra was, quite simply, one of the most brilliant minds I ever encountered, and I stand in gratitude that I was ever privileged to know her. She was also the funniest human being on earth. She could make me laugh on the darkest of days. I miss her every day. Rest in peace, at long last, my friend. My love goes with you, through all worlds.

I should like to make it quite clear to anyone reading the poetry of Sandra, that she is without a doubt a Brilliant Poet. She has a style that captures the heart of her readers. I would suggest to anyone visiting her poetry pages, that you keep going back and reading every last one of her pieces. You will be glad you did.
