River Of Destiny

Going to see that lady of Wizardry.

In the grey house of mystery.

Over the bridge, strong and earthy.

Finding my path to bravery.

Not to be judged lightly.

But cured for all eternity.


Bending, a bow to the Queen, so ghostly.

In the castle of life, so empty.

Far from again being carefree.

Finding my journey to longevity.

Not to be forlorn and angry.

But face friends and foe all calmly.


Searching to see her hidden beauty.

In the distant Abbey, so eerie.

Over the boundaries, through the valley.

Finding my river of destiny.

Not to be trialed for my sanity.

But unveiled, for all humanity.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. Yes Colleen, the lady who helped me was wonderful, and I’ve lots of good memories, and she’s the reason, I came out and made my poem public to my family, friends and eventually all…. she was the first one to read my writings, and I’m forever thankyou for her gentle encouragement.

      1. Thank you so much for stopping by my page. So glad you enjoyed Your Puppet. I have just read “If only walls could talk” and it seems we were on a similar wave length with these two poems! Similar sentiments it seems! Really great poem. I look forward to reading more!

    I especially love this verse because boundaries are what hold us back or remind us of the strength we need to move forward. Amazing piece!

    1. At the time when I wrote it, the poem was an important piece for me… The lady of wizardry, was my psychologist, and she too thought the poem was cleverly amazing 😁🤗🤔
