Poet – James Burke
Hi there, my name is James Brahim Burke. I’m 23 years Young and mixed with Moroccan and English blood. Born and brought up on the border of Hackney and Bethnal green, and I’m not really too sure of my style or prose. I just say what’s on my heart at that particular time, and try and describe every part of my feeling or thought in my words.
A Coloured Lie
They want to consume what they cannot See,
Greed, Based on a Blood Stained Silence,
Denial purposely rains upon our self contained belief,
Do I believe in their Coloured Lie?
The following poem is called Uneducated intellect. Basically I feel I’m an uneducated intellect, but not necessarily an academically influenced intellect. Going through bad times at school, i ended up following life as I saw around me, on the street. As I say Im not great on my structure, but im just trying to get my raw approach across.
An Orchestrated Brain,
Reverse Psychology, with no Science,
As an Uneducated Intellect,
Now this was my very first piece I wrote. I love to be controversial. I love the use of juxtapositions. I just filled this poem with my thoughts and how confuse I get when I think I’m doing right and I’m actually doing wrong. Like my mind is a mad battlefield.
I’m an Intellect, Portraying the Illness in my Ethicality
Unethical thoughts, effortlessly overflowing,
Trying to stay afloat,
I am a Man Born with Pride,
No place for a leader,
Fatal shivers, as my Demons dawn upon me,
Confusion settles, like a mist on a deserted lake,
The poem below called ‘AnalyZe’ is basically my mind. I like to try and describe it sometimes, because no-one can understand it.
AnalyZe the World Within,
I can’t explain my Apprehension,
Dark and Lonely,
End of my tether, don’t want a Life Sentence,
Evocative words work only as a signal,
