We can always dream

We can always dream

No matter where we are in life

We can always dream

It doesn’t matter what you have

It doesn’t matter what you’ve seen

It doesn’t matter who you were

It doesn’t matter where you’ve been

We can always dream

Reach for the moment

Spied in a gleam

Never out of reach

We can always dream

If you can think it

And you can feel it

A path laid out in a single beam

We can always dream

Then if things go foul

Find the cracks and fall between

At least you can say

“It was just a dream”

The point I’m making

Is that the future has no flowers

It’s shoots are still green

Those memories still to show themselves

We can always dream

Dream for Hope

hopesanddreams

We have to stop
We have to stop pretending it will be OK
We have to stop answering when the greedy pray
We have to stop… And this is what we have to say

“We will no longer cry”
“We will no longer let our young be the ones sent to die”
“We will no longer be usurped and held down by your lie”
“We will no longer be told what to use and when to buy”

For far too long
For far too long, too little had to suffice
For far too long we’ve been experimented on like mice
For far too long we have lived, to your throw of the dice

The time has come
The time has come for us to claim our own
The time has come for us to respond to what we’re shown
The time has come for truth to out, and myth to be blown

We have a choice
We have a choice to be the best we can
We have a choice to be more than just an “also ran”
We have a choice to live for the better of our fellow Man

Maybe it’s just me
Maybe it’s just me that sees the things I do
Maybe it’s just me that needs to learn to see this through
Maybe it’s just me, and none of this resonates with you

I dream for hope
I dream for hope to be the guiding message in my tale
I dream for hope in this age when we’re all set up to fail
I dream for hope to rise above the fear, and finally prevail

Life and Futility

futility.jpg

When you can’t get the words out
Or the feelings on the page
Brain just saying “Fuck you”
And refusing to engage
An internal tide of chaos
With no way to assuage
Too civilised, or programmed
To give in to the rage

The pain that burns inside
Leaves you virtually blind
You fumble in the dark
For any reasons you can find
Trying to collect
The scattered fragments of your mind
The ultimate desire
See what was broken re-entwined

But that way leads to hope
Hope never pays it’s way
Hope just makes suggestions
Of a path out of the grey
Hope’s a dangled carrot
First it’s shown, then pulled away
Hope is just a game
That we never asked to play

The thing I fear the most?
One day I’ll cease to care
And I’ll be less affected
As life pulls away my chair
One day I won’t react
When I see that life’s unfair
And I’ll just turn away from things
I just don’t want to bear

That will be the day I’ll know
That I just cannot win
And if I cannot see this through?
Then why should I begin?
The cards are stacked against us
And rigged to draw us in
The shit is always neck deep
There is no thick or thin

Dare to Dream

dream big

Cherish moments
Mark the time
Make the memories
But miss the chime
Seize the day
And win the race
Share your smile
From face
……..to face
Lead with heart
Then follow through
Give the best
That you can do
Always strive
To give your best
Treat all you meet
As an honoured guest
Be the one
To make a stand
Be the one
With outstretched hand
Embrace the World
Take a chance
Sing out loud
Feel free to dance
Only bite
What you can chew
Only choose
What’s right for you
Be the cat
Who got the cream
Just be you
And dare to dream

Daydreaming

daydreaming

 

Staring off
Into the grey
Lost in the haze
With nothing to say
Thoughts arising
Then drift and sway
Float off in the breeze
And then up and away
Each new thought
Never spoken aloud
Wrapped in a cloak
An ethereal shroud
Writhing in growth
Into billowing cloud
Looking for form
From a truth un-avowed
The art of the daydream
Allow it to flow
Allow it to fly and
Allow it to grow
Bring it to life
Then you just let it go
And then where it ends up
Well, you just never know

Fuck The Referendum!!!!

fuck the referendum

 

 
 
We’re standing on a precipice
On a dark and cloudy night
Squaring up for a battle
That we didn’t want to fight
Pandering to fear and hate
Stirred up by the right
We’re heading for some dark days
Before we find the light
 
We’ve brought this on ourselves
Now we’re reaping what was sown
The fault we lay at others feet
Is actually our own
Elected leeches the real cause
Of the problems you bemoan
Now we’ll have to live with consequence
Of true colours now being shown
 
Tomorrow won’t run smoothly
Society has gone lame.
Every issue magnified
As the losers seek to blame
Every future problem
An excuse to name and shame
No matter who wins now
Things will never be the same  😦

Which way’s in? Which way’s out?

referendum flags

The big day
Is approaching
Fast
View’s
Of both sides
Being hurled
And cast
This shit is getting pretty serious
 
Farage  
Just trots out
Platitudes
Cameron’s
Scares
Breed attitudes
Normally I’d find this shit hilarious
 
But people
Are having
Their brains bleached
Tolerances
For bullshit
Long over-reached
Trance-like, the proles seem delirious
 
I fear
For an empty
Tomorrow
On course
For collision
With sorrow
Yet those with no plan strut imperious
 
All that we
Ask
Is for clarity
Both sides
Focused
On factual parity
Not shrouded in the fog of the mysterious
 
Just for once
Furnish us
With facts
See what happens
When truths
Interact
Instead of just the downright spurious
