Waiting by The Gisborne Poet
A poem about Jamiesonn…
For this power to be set free
Looking in the mirror what do I see
A new me
What can I say
Hopefully soon I will be on my way
I can’t wait for the shadows to rise
Everyone will get a nasty surprise
A new being will in this place
They won’t recognize this face
Waiting, waiting for whats to come
I can’t wait to walk in the sun
This power is building wanting to fly
A lot of people will here my cry
I will listen to them scream and yell
Locked away the will know where I have been and what it is like to be in this hell
I am about to make there world a nightmarish dream
A world of red
Because at last I can say “I AM NOT DEAD“
From time to time I come across people that are very talented, whether they are a fellow writer, artist, singer or poet.
It is not always easy being in the arts. Anyone who is a writer, singer or poet will tell you that lyrics, sentences, themes, scenes, are not just something that happens by the wave of a hand and using Jedi/Sith mind tricks. Writing, takes talent and inspiration.
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Jen P, who is in Gisborne, New Zealand. Jen is known as “The Gisborne Poet“. Jen is currently doing a Photobook with poems attached, which is titled “Through the eyes of a poet“.
Jen had a moment to read The Chosen – Chapter 5 excerpt, and she was left with such an impression about the book, that she wrote a poem about it.
This is a wonderful poem, that I just had to share this with you all.
SHADOWS by “The Gisborne Poet”
Shadows dance to and fro
Darkness doesn’t want to let you go
This fight is between dark and light
But still you can’t see what hides in the night
You never see a face coming your way
It never lets you see the light of day
The power when you hit the wall
Your not given a chance to call
You feel the bones start to break
You know an innocent life is at stake
Darkness covers us as we cry
Shadows are there for you and I
Please ,please, let him go
You say it with every blow
Shadows hide what we can’t see
Now that person’s spirit is free
Shadows don’t give you a choice
As all that is left is one small voice
Hidden from view
Is a person I never knew

As mentioned in a previous post; Starting in June, I will be showcasing some Urban Myths and Legends on YouTube, featuring some of the best Urban Legends of Russia and New Zealand.
My first project will be to revisit the town of Chapayevsk and do a short film in the Municipal Cemetary, as I explain the Legend of Elena, who reportedly roams the Cemetary.
The second Webisode will take place in Zhiguli mountains near Shiryaevo which is in the Samara region.
The Legend of Zoya is well known in the Samara region, so I will also be featuring this Urban Legend.
Going by Legends, on January 14, 1956, a young factory worker Zohi arranged a party. All who were invited had a partner to dance with but Zoya did not. Her fiance Nicholas did not come. Then she took out the icon of St Nicholas, and cried out: “As long as my Nicolas did not come I will dance with this Nicholas!” It is reported that she danced with the icon in her hands. Friends tried to stop Zoyu, but she said: “If there is a God, let him punish me.”
Suddenly they heard a thunder and lightning in the room. The other youth fled in fear. And when her friends returned, they saw Zoya standing in the middle of the room, paralyzed – almost stone-like, with the icon still in her hands.
For 128 days Zoya stood in the middle of the room. Crowds of people came from far and wide to witness the miracle.After 128 days, it is said that she woke up, repented and quietly died.
I have also heard that there are some great Urban Legends & Ghost Stories of St. Petersburg and Moscow, so coming in the Summer will be more Webisodes online.
