Etched in some memory – The Cockney Bard

Praying for this day to end as death surrounds me.
As scared as any man, yet I no more than a child.
Suffering each friend’s demise as in horror I reel.
Sacrificing my sanity and all I once knew, little as that was.
Cold bodies, charred bodies, faceless bodies abound.
Hearing the screams of fallen mates and those I know not.
Every sound I hear magnified in hell’s tortured mind.
Nearing death oneself as shells descend. Good God!
Dreams, optimism, youth’s filled hope, banished to nothing!
As pity rolls down my face in misshaped tears, pray for me won’t you.
Every Soldier dreams a victorious end. If only!
Laid in mud, sacrificial lambs, butchered and slain.
Etched in some memory in years to come, me and my fallen chums!


Simple understanding guide of an innate ability by The Cockney Bard

Posted in Uncategorized on July 27, 2017 by thecockneybard

Having studied the mind (formerly known as the soul) for over twenty odd years here is the Cockney Bard’s ‘Ten point simple understanding guide’

1) we all have the capability to access the sixth sense, psychic ability, mediumship call it what you like. It is innate within ALL human beings as is the capacity to heal with hands (reiki, spiritual healing, natural healing, energy healing call that what you like too).

2) I have never had any teaching, no master, no guru, never been on any courses, no initiation. This proves it is a perfectly natural ability.

3) it takes years to develop a great understanding of it. To sort the wheat from the chaff and to near master the understanding. You can never fully master it.

4) Lack of understanding and it can be very detrimental. Often mixed up with mental health concerns the reality is somewhere inbetween.

5) You need to realise that as well as good there is bad.

6) You need not be religious, a spiritualist, belong to any group, have any faith, any belief, worship any symbol, any saint, God or guru.

7) You should not believe all you are told when accessing this extraneous source. Being a well balanced individual is essential. People have said they have communicated with all kinds of people from Jesus to Merlin so caution advised.

8) You can see the future, you can get information about others you have not previously known, you can if you are very fortunate get wonderful philosophy and poetry as have I. You can be fed with intelligence (see sonnet 86 of Shakespeare) and re-educated also as was I.

9) You need to be disciplined with the information and its content. You need to use common sense when dealing with others on the subject.

10) And the most important is don’t live your life by it.

It is often ridiculed by science, sceptics, those with little to no understanding of it like Stephen Fry, Derren Brown, Richard Dawkins et al, those who fear the truth or those who have their own agenda. Of course there are frauds and fakes out there. But what you can say with great certainty is it is very real and you ALL have the ability to access it scientists and sceptics included.

Remember the only truth is a proven fact.

The many of misunderstood

Posted in Uncategorized on July 27, 2017 by thecockneybard

I was taught, I gave others my teaching, I questioned not. They questioned not. They believed, I believed that my teaching was just and true. Suddenly the world was full of people who questioned not. In a world of those that questioned not, the teaching became a truth and from that truth spawned the many of misunderstood. The misunderstood were those who never questioned if, what and why? – The Cockney Bard

I have no rules!

Posted in Uncategorized on July 27, 2017 by thecockneybard

I am not a poet in the conventional understanding of what a poet is or is meant to be. I have no rules, I don’t spend hours writing or sit pondering delightful ditties, string long words together, rhyming couplets and quaint pieces for an afternoon recital, whilst having tea and scones. Neither am I a fan of absolute dross, pretending it to be wonderful stuff, award winning stuff, given gentle applause by clueless authorities on the subject. I know what banal is, and I also know what beauty is, therefore I do not have the emperors suit of clothes. What I am is someone who when I feel the muse upon me, do take up the pen and write pieces on all sorts of subjects. – The Cockney Bard

On Nature

On Nature – The Cockney Bard

Nature makes you think doesn’t it. The defenseless rabbit easy prey for the fox, the cat the way it torments the hell out of the mouse before ending its life, mankind and its wanton killing of another human being just for the hell of it. Some examples of the horrid side of something, so beautiful that is nature. It proves in all things there is positive and negative, light and darkness, right and wrong, good and bad, love and hate and you simply don’t have one without the other. – The Cockney Bard
