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.

Plasma addiction

Standard
Plasma addiction

Addicted to the plasma screen

People watch with baited breath and dream,

Of something that will give their life meaning

Fed to them via televisual themes,

We worry big brothers watching us

But in truth they are waching big brother,

It doesn’t have to try no more

As you’re being monitored on your sofa,

And people lose the track of what’s real

And what is actually illusion,

Then you wonder why when you step outside

That your life is thrown into confusion,

It’s nothing how it seems on TV, it’s not nearly as glossy

And not everything is all fun and laughter,

That often you find your life’s a disaster,

And you realise that you cannot cope

Without a fix of your favourite soap,

In there things often go wrong but in the end it turns out ok,

But in real life you soon find out that it’s not all happy endings

And no amount of acting out like towie and all that fake pretending

Is going to make you rich and famous,

Not matter how much make up and fake tan you put on,

And when you become addicted to the plasma life

You buy into the media man’s scam,

And will find life passing you by

As you’re fed political lies,

From the well dressed news presenter

Who is presenting propaganda,

Dictated by the government or oligarch that owns the broadcaster,

Who shows you scenes or war, fear and of scary disasters

And then at end of it tells stories of happy ever afters,

Can you hear their fucking laughter

Because they know they got you hooked,

As you are now alien to reading any books,

You rely on them for knowledge

It’s like TV has become your college,

Feeding you with poison and shit

And you swallow every bit,

If this is life then you can keep it,

For I don’t want to be a part of this.

Where has the love gone

Standard

Time and time again

I always see the same ,

The propagation of mankinds shame

As love is lost again,

In the brutality of life

That do many justify,

Though denied their basic rights

Too many people die,

Where has the love gone?

Where is our humanity,

Where has the love gone?

We lost it in our insanity,

Young children suffering,

From the loss of their family,

Ripped apart from them,

Through war or political means,

We lock people in cages

I doubt they were born bad,

It was how they were brought up

And the truth is mighty sad,

Where has the love gone?

Where is our humanity,

Where has the love gone?

We lost it in our insanity,

I shed a tear,

I am choked,

At every death I see and hear,

I grieve for humankind

That has to live in fear,

I wish that we could change this

So we no longer have to shed a tear,

But many choose to live this way

Because they enjoy the drama it appears,

Or is it they’ve never known peace

Or realise how much better it is,

Where has the love gone?

Let’s get it back, right back here,

And instill it in our hearts,

Let’s restore our humanity,

And choose to be kind as a start

Let’s rediscover the love.

Apathy and misery

Standard

Is your misery caused by your apathy

Is it passive observing and your non-belief,

That causes you to attack me from the safety of your room

Behind your computer screen,

And is it why in your loneliness and solitude you scream,

Because your life doesn’t mean anything,

Because you don’t stand for something, you fall for everything,

You live a life without any meaning,

You live life without experiencing

What it is to truly live close to the edge,

You’ve never stood there on that ledge

Peering down into the deep abyss,

Truth is all opportunities you always miss,

By sitting in your room judging me and others who do more than just exist,

Get out there and live life

Witness the hardship and the strife,

The poor and the homeless blocking doors

See the dead soldiers coffins returning from some war,

See the usual black lives destroyed a little more

And animals experimented on with no real cause,

See the rich and powerful bending and breaking laws,

It appears with impunity but if we do it, we get beaten to the floor,

And end up in some prison cell

So you’re wondering why we scream and yell,

And why we’re so fucking angry,

But that’s because life passes you by, you’re sanitised against it,

The truth is you don’t understand this,

Because you have never tried to really live,

You’re to afraid to do more than exist

Or accept that you’re your own authority and won’t start to use it

As place to start and grow but instead you run and hide from this,

Your apathetic way you choose to live

Defines the misery of your existence,

But you can still change it

You can still bring sbout a personal, paradigm shift,

You just have to go out and truly experience everything and breathe it in.

Extremes and divides can’t heal the hurt

Standard
Extremes and divides can’t heal the hurt

Right wing, left wing

Who gives a fuck,

When people are dying

Which truly sucks,

Innocent black lives

They were doing nothing wrong,

Taken out by cops

The list goes on and on,

But where are the healers?

And the peacemakers?

Not the President

Who’s trying to rack up votes,

By representing one extreme

‘I’ll smash heads if you vote for me’,

Says Antifa are a terrorist theme

But what about the alt right

Middle aged men killing machines,

Both sides can’t conceive of a balanced path

Where we all learn the compassionate art,

Of caring for each other

And understanding,

Learning to be a little less demanding,

Why do black lives matter?

It’s because they’re under greatest threat

This is America’s greatest test,

To finally create an equal society

Where colour does count against you in anything,

Where it doesn’t hold you back

And target you for being searched,

Where being black doesn’t mean you get treated like dirt,

America needs a president that wants to unify,

That wants to strive for equal rights,

That looks to heal and not divide

That stand independent and doesn’t take sides,

So fuck the left wing extremes

As well as the far right,

I am just focused on peoples lives.
