Poet's Corner

Space (For you) by Elwyn Bull

Rocket Take Off

We all need some space,

To be ourselves and follow,

The path that we should take,

To become valued members of the human race.

We all need some space,

To relax, rest and recuperate,

So that everyday life, bills,

Budgets, buying and selling, we can face.

We all need some space,

Time to do our own thing,

Write a poem, or go for a walk,

Hobbies and pass times really are ace.

We all need some space,

To help us grow and mature,

For our physical and mental health,

There’s nothing a little time out can’t replace.

So give yourself some space,

Then you could fly high,

Over the moon, reaching the stars,

 If some “you time” you will embrace.

It’s really Outta Space.

About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
