Poetry Corner 27 January 2018

Chaotic refuge - Ricardo Teixeira

 

Step through the gates
That metal clanking sound
Allowing entry
To hallowed ground

 

Brick halls,
Paths where leaves fall
Where students walk
And together talk
About our future
Our tomorrow

 

A purgatory of pleasure and pressure 

The happiest place,
We’ll ever go

 

Lost sheep -  Ricardo Teixeira

 

Late nights,
Even earlier mornings

 

Important assignments,
Missed opportunities

 

Hiding behind sunglasses
And campus communities

 

Grabbing a drink after 12
Into books,
We often delve.

 

Yet what we learn best of all,
Isn’t taught in a lecture hall

 

It’s between class,
As we sit on the grass.
