Never Give Up - Mag 291


























©Shers Gallagher 2015

Squeeze out a dream
and make it happen.
Soar to the moon
and mount what defeats you.
Hitch the stars
and shine in heaven.
Never give up, 
never give up.

Squeeze out a dream
and make it happen.
Sail the horizon 
and walk the shores.
Colour your earth
by loving your planet.
Never give up,
never give up!

Squeeze out a dream
and make it happen.
Explore your soul
and light a fire.
Spread it around
with living your life.
Never give up,
never give up....

    1. Good idea, Tess! For some reason while I was concocting this the song '99 Luftballons' by Nena kept racing through my head. I don't know why but there it is. Love the song and Nena's voice, though. Always have....

  5. Beauteous


    Spread it around
    And burn that
    Motherfucker down
    And bring about change
    Stand and admire
    The reflection on their
    Eyes
    As fire consumes
    The shattered remnants
    Of your mind
    In the ashes
    You may find
    A foundation
    That sanity can rely
    On
    That sanity can survive
    On
    But beware
    Do not be tricked
    By fire's beauteous glare
    Matches are not the solution
    To all of what bothers you
    In this world

  6. I really like the thought if squeezing out a dream... sometimes when you close your eyes you wish for just the best of dreams.

Raised by a Fly-boy Father...who could not sit still

©Shers Gallagher 2016
Over miles with him we 'rode or bust' to this and that highway and some other byway that stretched across the Great Divide.  He settled in the end, back to where he started. And I, like him, having been raised in motion, could not sit still. Over miles alone I trekked across lava rock that glistened like jagged points of death and Steppes that went nowhere until they sank into the sun. Only then, like my father, did I arrive with a yearning  to come back home.

The Call

©Shers Gallagher 2016
The days grow colder and my heart grows bolder
to hear the call of the totem wolf, 
though limbs begin to rattle like the branches of a tree
as leaves turn bright before they fade and quietly fall,
drifting down and crumbling into air 
that smells of crackling pine and roasting logs of cedar.
I missed you then as I miss you now. 
But most of all I miss my youth 
and the dance I used to be.
Not the dance of whirring bees,
because I never was a hostile takeover. 
I miss the playful shadows of light
and soft breezes on silken feathers.
I miss the easiness of then, 
though, in truth I’m more physically comfortable now. 
And yet I’d give it all up for only a few more 
playful shadows of twilight and silken days.

Ardy’s Plight at the Privy – Fairy’s song

Excerpted from 'Uncommon Boundaries: Tales and Verse' ©2012 SM Gallagher
[Dedicated to my granddaughter, Maya Annalisa Trask, turning four-years-old today!]

A large Irish family filled up two of the long pinewood bench tables at the Hare and Hunter - the small medieval fairground restaurant that had a larger than average terrace, catering to the sit-down crowds of wandering festival goers. This particular family appeared to be drinking more than eating, which wasn’t uncommon in the sweltering heat of a midsummer’s day in the shire. 

I sat at the table’s far end, furthest from the congested masses, as it was my short pause from working the lanes as a paid entertainer in fantasy costume, blowing stardust on delighted children, getting into mischief with the locals, and tickling tin whistles and whatnot – all the things one could imagine of a proper fairy of a local shire. During my pause, however, I didn’t want to be bothered for fairy wishes and the like. Instead, I ordered a pint…
