What’s real? What’s not?

Standard

What’s real?

What’s not?

It’s difficult to tell

When everything you see

Is created and perceived

By your own mind

By your conscious reality

What you think and believe

Can be a lot different to me

We can both see the same colour

But about the hue we disagree

We both can view the same happening

Yet both have different views on what we’ve seen

So what’s real?

What’s not?

It’s difficult to know

Most thing may only exist

When they’re actually seen

But when they’re not

Do they then cease to be

It’s our unique mind

That forms the images we see

Like is there any sound in a forest

When there is the falling of a tree

Because sound is an audio thing created by our mind

Outside of this is the world quiet all the time

Is it just out brain adding sounds to our life

Like the soundtrack of a movie

You hear running behind

Take away the music

The movie is not so sublime

It adds to the tension

To the excitement and to the story

It can regale what we’re viewing

In sadness or glory

What’s real?

What’s not?

It’s difficult to know

Our lives are our own story

So let’s put on a show.

They control

Standard

They control

They lock us down

They distract

They stifle our sounds,

Sounds of freedom

And exposing corruption,

Lack of equality

Not everybody is sharing,

When we’re struggling

Those who lead are not caring,

They exploit us each day

Make us work so no time for play,

All for the dollar dollar bill

Which is minimum wage,

Freedom and love

Is all that I crave,

But this has never been

And never will be their way,

So we have to stand strong

And be authentic today.

Money woes

Standard

So I work so hard to earn some money

Just enough to keep my head above water,

And to stop me drowning in deep waters

Then along comes the tax man and hits me with a bill,

That makes my hard graft worthless still,

The man who allows big multinational corporations

Sell their wares without paying tax,

Or like formula paying a one percent sweat heart deal

Is this system for fucking real?

Why do they get away with paying nothing

And if I tried the same I’d end up in prison,

This is what they call a fare and equal affair

Well that’s me fucked and the tax man don’t even care,

Because this is a society that simply doesn’t wealth share.

Said it before I will say it again and again

Standard

Fuck all corrupt government

Ripping this world and societies apart,

These governments who serve wealth and power

Create wars that make global citizens cower,

They divide so they can control

The wealth of Nations they stole and sold,

They then tell us the world’s in crippling debt

To who exactly the Illuminati sect?

The monetary system was created by men who sought wealth,

Now they use it control everything else,

Governments are puppets to these bankers

And so are the oligarch media that hankers,

For a piece of the pie and so unashamedly print lies,

Unelected svengali’s live off all of this, like an infestation of fleas,

All of these are addicted and dedicated to greed

And we the people will never be free,

Of their exploitation and their controlling ways

Stand against them they’ll make us pay,

Communist or capitalist

They’re all United and that’s the twist,

Political left or political right

They’re there to instill divides,

Religion uses exactly the same tools

And altogether they treat us people as fools,

And they live in luxury while we fight to survive

It’s time to stop believing their fucking lies,

We need a paradigm political shift

Clear the decks and rid us of the shit,

And build new systems based on equality and sharing,

A new world order based on peace and caring,

With no fucking borders, flags or anthems,

Just a united people of United Nations,

Wake up people and see the truth

This can happen but it needs me and you,

And every person who wants better life

Based on living fair and living right,

To rise up now one and for all

And oppose the corrupt governments that rule.

My wishes

Standard

I wish I could give all that people need

I wish I had an endless food basket to feed

Those who are left to starve and go hungry

I wish I the ability to create peace

I wish I had the power to travel to the furthest stars

I wish I had the time to be always where you are

Offering comfort and sharing love

I wish I could enrich everyone I touch

I wish I had the power to save the trees

I wish I could save this planet environmentally

I wish I had the power to save humanity

I wish I had the know how to stop man’s self extinction.

Work life balance

Standard

Life work balance has been lost

And it is to our personal cost

We slave to earn a pittance of pay

Working longer hours every day

Trying to make every end meet

So tired, we’re dead on our feet

It makes our misery complete

Our suffering is wholly replete.

Poetry rap

Standard

Here’s my little poetry rap,

Feel the rhythm and its massive attack,

I spit the words and rocks crack,

These are the foundations that keep me on track,

I love everybody be they white or black.

When I build up momentum

Then I can’t be stopped,

In the next moment

You hear the mic drop,

All of a sudden it goes pop-puh pop,pop

And I hear the sound as the door locks,

I see the hands spin

On the time clock,

Then banging on the door

As opportunity knocks,

Let’s go and have big fun

Round my neighbourhood block,

Try as you may I won’t be mocked

Because this is the house that Faux rocked.

(Thought I’d have a bit of fun with this 🤪😁🙏Faux)

Glass ceiling

Standard

They say always stay aspirational

Never look down always look up,

But all I see a glass ceiling

Made of reinforced glass construct,

They say stay positive while you’re being held down

Scaping up the scraps from the rich tables

As they trickle down to the ground,

It’s always those not in poverty

That see the chances we don’t see,

Because they have the luxury of a life more easy,

Whereas we have the struggle of striving to survive

We do what we can but when do we get the time?

Usually we’re too exhausted in body and mind

From the daily servile grind,

That we need to partake in, to pay the bills

Our life is so basic, there’s no fucking frills,

Slaving in the workhouse and the dark satanic mills,

Run by the rich who exploit us still,

I got the inspiration and I got the will,

But to be honest, of this life and society I’ve had my fill.

Understanding a complex issue

Standard

Live and let live is what I say

You can be who you want to be everyday,

But does that mean putting yourself on display

And if you do, why are you so surprised,

When people notice you, which surely is the point

And if they see how you display yourself and choose to disagree,

Why unleash upon them, your anger and fury

For having a set of different ideals and beliefs,

After all tolerance works both ways.

I am what I choose to be but don’t need to say to all

Oh, look at me, please I insist approve of me,

And don’t dare careless or say something I don’t like

We’re all entitled to safe spaces,

Trans men can’t expect to decide one day to be this way

Then the next day to choose to invade,

What has always been a female place

We get you feel like a woman,

But they don’t know if it’s a strategy you’re using

To enter an area designed for women,

It takes longer to prove your change is genuine

For to long women have been the victim of men,

And their abusive, cunning, predatory ways

And if you are truly of female you’ll understand the things I say,

And stop attacking women who say the same

Trans must respect safe spaces,

And not expect to enter all these places.

Don’t just observe

Standard

I came to simply observe

But I got caught up in the moment,

As the passions started rising

And the chants and songs rang out,

How could I stand by and passively observe

The thought of that and the notion,

Of that to me is so absurd

So I weighed into the crowd and made my voice heard,

And as a few then tried to trigger violence

I said that’s the police’s answer not ours,

Do not rise to the bait just stand strong and curse

Use the power of your numbers,

And sing we will not be moved

The power of force is used mostly, by the boys in blue,

Don’t give them any reason, to bust protesters heads

Do not rise to the hate and violence that you’ve been fed,

Just stand strong and stand in unity

Muslim, Christian, black and white,

Don’t you see it’s the governments plan

To divide us, then cause us to fight,

To the rich and privileged we are all simply, just fucking scum

This is why we must come together and stand up for our rights,

I saw within the crowd a multitude of colours and faiths,

And I realised the rich, powerful and privileged

Just maybe losing their sway,

But there’s many more that won’t see this

Because they’re blinded by greed and hate,

And to wrapped up in the xenophobic idea of the nation state,

But when the protest finished and no fight broke out

The media lost interest and left those reports out,

Because we live within a system that divides and controls

For its own self serving ends and to help their own privilege grow,

So don’t you be an observer, go into the heart of it

And help to promote change,

To bring about a better world in which we wish to live.
