No matter your look

I don’t care what you look like

As long as you’re kind and caring,

I don’t care about what others say

As long as you love and are sharing,

The only thing that puts me off of people

Is when they’re nasty and toxic,

When the show no love at all

And when they come across as narcissistic,

Because positive loving people are terrific,

No matter what they look like

Or what other people have to say,

I am more than happy to call you my friend anyway.

This is it

I dream of all the things in life

That love most, that gets me high,

Like nature and its animals

From the large to the very small,

I love the hillsides and mountains

Its lakes and streams are phenomenal,

I love to la under clear blue skies

But starry nights are awesome I can’t lie,

These are the things I dream of most

And drifting upon the seas on a boat,

Drinking in the oceans wide

Or roaming through jungles just might,

Be the most incredible things

I’d like to do this all for that’s truly living,

To experience all of this

And maybe to live within it all so closely,

So I can appreciate it and enjoy it all

This is a dream that I think is not too tall,

I don’t need money or material things

As long as I have all this,

Which would be a great way to live

So I keep imagining it.

Dreaming of more

I pine for better

But appreciate what I have,

I long for an easier life

But I show gratitude for the present,

To not have to work so hard

Or to have to stress so much,

After living a tough life

I think it’s fair enough,

To pine for a little bit more.

Inspiring orators

Inspiring words put tears in my eyes

They make me realise the euphoria of life,

A few good and well chosen words

Can lift the people once they are heard,

So where are the great orators now

The great leaders and the ones with the know-how,

To raise up the people all across the globe

To inspire them with dreams and give us all hope,

Where are these people now?

Money and power

There are those who believe

That making the rich richer,

Brings about growth

Meanwhile the poor get poorer,

And yet the truth is

The richest one percent,

Are not the type to really spend

It’s those of us who get little in the end,

And always end up struggling

The rich move money into tax havens,

Into off shore accounts and investments

They won’t enrich our country,

They will simply bleed it dry

And there’s no reason to ask why,

It’s because governments

Know they have to take care of the rich,

Because that’s where the power really is.

Life and it’s flow

Time slips by so slow when you are young

But when you’re older it goes so fast,

It’s so important to make the most of it,

Through sharing and caring while showing love

And still appreciating it when life gets tough,

It’s the ups and downs that give us the experience

Of worldly wisdom that creates sustenance,

And as we live and learn we grow so much

And develop a kind and human touch,

That makes life more positive and enjoyable

While also making us more durable,

To the rollercoaster life that’s in front of us.

Leave something behind

If we leave no trace of who and what we were behind

Then how will anyone remember us

Beyond our close knit family who will also like one day become dust

And beyond all this will we live on and if so tell me how?

So I write to leave some memories for the future not just for now

And if my words resonate with those in years to come

Then my ambition to remembered and thought about is done

And I will somehow live on.

No more bloody wars

Media focus on all the wars

But we don’t want your bloody wars,

Wars of terror, wars without a cause

Wars for territory and religious wars

But we don’t want your bloody wars,

See the dead and see the maimed

Leaders and armies on the rampage,

All that participate can only be seen as insane

Your God your masters, are they the ones that we must blame,

Killing in somebody’s name

For committing crimes of taking lives away,

Innocent children, women and men

Do they feel the weight of guilt and shame,

Fighting wars home and away

We don’t want your bloody war games,

But the truth is it’s no fucking game

To those laying dead or crippled and maimed,

To them it’s a brutal truth that one day it may be me or you.

Exhausted

Don’t you get exhausted

Being a narcissist,

Focusing everything on you

You ain’t that special,

And that’s the truth

Don’t you get exhausted,

By seeking to control

Those who you say you love,

You’re like a vacuum in a black hole

Destroying those you try to love,

But you don’t know what love is

Ain’t that the truth.

Don’t be fooled

You say immigrants steal jobs and houses

But you know that ain’t true

It’s just the lie the racist right has fed you,

You know they don’t do this in reality

And if you studied it you’d know it’s the truth

Just like they don’t steal jobs from me and you,

Man don’t be that fool, don’t be used

Don’t let these haters exploit you,

To spread the lies, which aren’t based in facts

Reconnect to empathy, tolerance and love

Which at the moment you clearly lack,

Because they’ve filled your mind with fear

Question everything you hear,

When it comes from a place of negativity

It’s toxic and is so clear,

Rooted in people who feel somehow

Inadequate and inferior and allow,

Prejudice and discrimination fill their lives

Which are cold and shallow,

Open your eyes, your heart and mind

And you’ll realise over a period of time,

That diversity is what makes this place so great

And yeah it’s not just one colour, race or faith that hates,

So I speak to all when I say don’t be fooled

We’re all one family, one race ain’t that the truth,

Stop being divided by those who rule

Or have ambitions to control and use you,

Rise above all this and see these words are truth

I only say this because man, I love you.
