Fruits Of The Passion

Fruits of the passion,
Blood of the vein,
All our salvations,
Citric the pain,

Suffered the fault,
Of the lives that he bought,
By his prayers to stay sane,
Through redemption his thought,

Fertile the marks,
Adorn bristles his frown,
Garland laurels for scars,
Of the thorns for a crown,

Let the new days dawning, seed,
The harvest of the lives we need,
But not the tree to wood that cross,
Be ever grown again by us,

And splintered back, subjected, torn,
With vinegar on lip to quell,
His persecution, we’re reborn,
The thirst, for crying “save us”, hell,

And by the watered crop, his tears,
Reign down upon us, grain,
Until we bud from weeping fears,
The yield he wished, regain,

Our souls he reaped,
When after all his harm,
What’s sown, has stopped,
His life, was cropped,
To resurrect the calm.

I am happily living in Bahrain since August 2009 and look forward to being here for a number of years to follow., My background is as a Trade Consultant and Advisor to Government Departments interested in creating incentive programmes for commercial development, and also as a Marketing Mentor for industries looking to promote their portfolio internationally., I am involved in amateur dramatics, and appeared on tours throughout Ireland in a selection of dramas and comedy performances., Since arriving in Bahrain I joined the Bahrain Writers Society, and the Bahrain Writers Circle, and additionally the creative arts group Elham, as well as involved in dramatic productions for the Manama Theatre Company., I hope to establish a community drama society where we can develop themes which have an emphasis upon the traditions of The Gulf and consequently have high levels of Bahraini input and participation, My writings are mostly inspired by the extremes of finality, uncertainty, occasional unhappiness, emotional and physical pain and the joy that then comes from release., Additionally, I have attempted to face the directness of love and the feelings which may drown or embarrass our relationship with the everyday world.
