Misogyny must be defeated in every form

Standard

Misogyny goes on again

Men patronising women

Truth is they fear strong women

Who out achieve them

And have more guts and balls

Men have had it their way for far to long

As a man I can say this because I am not afraid

As long as that strength embraces compassion too

As long as they retain the love then that’s all good

Equality and diversity shows the strength of a society

So please I beg all women, never be appeased

Or cowed by misogyny.

Truth

Spin

Standard

Spin, spin, spin

This is the government talking,

They do not tell it the way it is

They just keep on lying,

Spinning negativity

To make it seem positive,

Burying things that are vital

And that they should be exposing,

Spin, spin, spin

To hide their incompetence,

They use the spin as a way

To keep distracting,

So we don’t know what’s true or ain’t

This is the way they operate,

And why they can’t answer questions

Put towards them straight,

They know if the answer truly

The the public would be appalled,

They can never say sorry for their actions

Because they’re got no ethics or morals at all,

Spin, spin, spin

It’s deception don’t be fooled,

It’s an annoying tactic, used by those who rule.

Right and wrong

Standard

Everywhere I go

And everyone I meet,

I treat my journey as a blessing

And treat people kindly,

After all I see no point

In being nasty or rude,

I say things how I feel

Sometimes I can be crude,

But it’s not because I wish to offend

You see that’s not my way,

It’s just that I grew up

In a hard knock rough estate,

But I still learnt wrong and right

And discovered love and compassion,

I still instilled within myself

The power of kindness to all,

Who treat and speak to my the same way

Which I see as courtesy,

I also show understanding

And tolerance to other peoples beliefs,

Even if I don’t agree, I keep it all polite

I prefer to love than go out my way to have a fight,

I am just a simple man

Who likes a simple life,

But it doesn’t stop me standing up

For what I believe is right,

And exposing bad things hiding in the shadows

By resonating a bright light.

We created change, but we need to go again

Standard

Back in 1979 we protested all the time

Protesting against war chanting fight wars not not war,

We stood up for CND against the nuclear threat

Fought for animal rights,

And regimes using oppression and might

To make people disappear in the middle of the night,

We fought for the cause mindful of 1984

It seemed a good target to make changes and more,

The pressure helped with nuclear deceleration

By the superpowers,

And helped reduce down our doomsday hour,

We helped to bring about animal rights change

By reducing down the fur trade,

Helped bring about awareness to animal vivesection

We strive for environmental issues,

Standing up for Greenpeace

Even when their ship got sank,

We kept the pressure going

But since those heady days,

Change has slowed down in many ways,

And even the things we fought so hard against

Seem to be back again,

Trump and Putin are building up their arsenal’s,

And the fur trade of shame

Seems to be coming back slowly everyday,

It’s imperative to ramp things up like extinction rebellion is doing,

Get out on the streets and disturbances start brewing,

For government must be put under pressure

And we must keep pushing a lot more,

Especially when it comes to fighting wars not war.

Traversing hard times

Standard

Hostile environments are all around

And we can’t help but hear the hostile sounds,

But we keep our heads and calm our hearts

We stick together and never part,

Because together acting as one

We are truly forever strong,

Facing down all adversity

We stay focused on our beliefs,

To be kind and full of love

Though times get hard and often tough,

We triumph over the ignorance we see

We learn to traverse these times, safely,

We shine bright and resonate light

We demand freedom and rights,

That no one has the right to take away

Or offer like a gift, they were ours anyway,

So in unison we achieve better days

We are courageous and we are brave.

Just walk with me

Standard

Just breathe and walk with me

Just feel the warm breeze and believe,

That things can get better when we love

Believe we can then begin to heal,

Just breathe and walk with me

And see every aspect of your dream,

Start to begin to reveal itself

And start slowly unfolding,

In a beautiful epiphany of thoughts

Just breathe and walk with me,

We can be anything that we choose to be

When we open up our minds creatively,

When we love ourselves emphatically

Well then we grow and we evolve,

And leave behind all negativity

Just breathe and walk with me,

Just feel the warm breeze and believe

That both you and me, in unity,

Can love indefinitely and wonderfully,

And this can start to change the world

This can be a new beginning if we wish,

Just breathe and walk with me

Into the sunset towards eternity,

Together as one in certainty

That we can feel the warm breeze,

And that we can believe,

That things get better when we choose to love unconditionally,

And in the amazing conscious reality,

We can just breathe and walk away spiritually

Into the warm breeze that defines our destiny,

Place of bliss and love, this place of dreams.

Entitled and privileged

Standard

I struggle with those who act entitled and privileged

There no better than anyone else

They are just acting out a role

Playing the part of someone of a higher class

Looking down upon everyone they feel superior too

But in truth they are so hollow and judgemental

They descend into ignorance in a way that’s incremental

Everything with them is external

They never work on what is internal

It’s all about the exterior gloss

They see themselves as some kind of boss

Of their delusions I could give a toss

But they are infecting society and that’s our loss

They dominate, airways TV and internet

Speaking words that they’ve been fed

They lack the understanding of depth

Lack empathy, love and kindness

But fake it when it helps to get ahead

They appeal to the vunerable who are easily misled

Instilling ignorance into peoples head

These fake entitled and privileged

Are no better than anyone else.
