Centrifugal balance


The centrifugal core of all of our beings

Revolves like one big vortex continually spinning,

It’s there to keep us even, there to keep us balanced,

So why do we work so hard at knocking ourselves right off our axis,

Why do we open up ourselves to all kind of mental harm

When what we should be doing is embracing love and calm

Stop involving ourselves external and beyond our control

And when we learn to do this we will then grow and then evolve.

Harsh words

Toxic message,

Wounds like bullets

Hiding behind words,

Does not absolve you

It won’t take the guilt away,

Negativity has its victims

And their blood is on your hands,

And you laugh

And then you mock me,

Because you do not understand

That sharing love,

And promoting kindness,

Means never knowing that regret

Of the guilt and the shame,

You own now by the words you dealt

Think long, study your conscience,

And I hope you sleep well

For the hurt and pain,

That your words caused

Their blood there on your hands,

And it never be washed away,

This is the price you have to pay.

The neighborhood of hard knocks


I walk these dimly lit

Rubbish bag lined streets,

Walls covered in graffiti

Rats running here and there

A neighbourhood of such despair,

Where very little people from outside care

Where life is cheaper than the drugs being sold there,

And we wonder why there’s so much crime

Wonder why violence is intertwined,

But equality is not part of capitalisms design

Do people keep there nose to the grind,

While having to live in dirt and grim

This is a tragic way to have to live life,

A terrible way to spend their time

As they slip ever more, always behind,

Down in to greater poverty

Down deeper into greater despair.

Drain the swamp


Is it not time to drain the swamp

And banish all that dwell there,

Those corrupt and hateful speakers

Those greedy types and material possession seekers,

Those xenophobic, violent types

Those who insist climate denial is right,

Drain the swamp and wash them out

For what they off society is nowt,

They live for toxicity,

They love negativity

Drain the swamp and let’s all see,

The true cancerous warts with all of our society.

One love for all

One love for all

One love on every day

One love in everyway

One love for all and everyone

One love for all that exists

One love for earth, this place we live

One love unconditionally

One love will set you free

One love casts off negativity and hate

One love is the perfect state

One love is balanced grace

One love, one love, one love for all.

Self doubt


So much doubt at times

Running through my mind

So much self introspection

To find out who I am

I know I can be more than I am now

But I just can’t find that place

I just want to find that thing I seek

I seek a comfortable, safe space

Where I am doing what I love

When I am doing what I feel good at

Doing what I need

I just want to find a way to ease the doubt

And feel secure in being me.

Self building


We are all embroiled in our own little battles

Fighting against the things we do don’t like,

Fighting against the things that effect us

Things that distort our life and mind,

And in doing so we miss what’s important

That everything and every aspect of who we are,

And what we go through

Is what shapes us and makes us strong,

All the battles that we wage are lessons

To help us to learn from and evolve,

So try and see everything as a positive

Rather than letting it drag you down,

See these battles as opportunity to build and grown

From solid, fertile ground.
