It’s in The Genes.

It’s in The Genes.

Don’t look upon that man, my boy,
His colour’s wrong and to be feared.
That man, he’s done nought to annoy,
Don’t look upon that man, my boy,
That man, he’s done nought to annoy,
It’s just the way that I was reared.
Don’t look upon that man, my boy,
His colour’s wrong and to be feared.

#Haikuesday

Every Tuesday I try my best to post Haikus on Twitter using #Haikuesday (follow me @writtenbygreg!). I find they’re a good way to get creative in short bursts when I’m finding writing difficult. Here are a few I’ve posted (and, spoiler alert, some I have scheduled). Enjoy!

Time comes without fail;
Bearing the warmest hug to
Relieve you of grief.

LGBTQ.
What a fantastic journey.
Still so far to go.

The gender wage gap;
Wider than the Amazon.
Keep swimming; you’ll win.

The ones who shape us,
Forever remain present.
A constant imprint.

Innocent Muslims
Banned due to geography.
Oh, and bigotry.

Returning after
Leaving in a muddied rush;
The fog never lifts.

The heart cannot feel –
It pumps. It’s oblivious
To its metaphor.

Tree falls in forest.
Nobody hears it except
For all of the bugs.

This resplendent life;
Shadowed by bigots and fools
Who kill the world’s fun.

Nothing is solved by
Putting your head in the sand.
Face your mess head on.

Gregory William.
