Walking my own path

walking-on-my-own-path

If there’s a judgement forming?
Then just fucking don’t
An attempt to label who I am?
Well it just fucking won’t
You really think you’re helping here?
You couldn’t be more wrong
Your just filling my gaps with your own views
Putting them where they don’t fucking belong
Please don’t use your standards
To judge the things I do
I don’t necessarily march along
To the same beat of the drum as you
Your World, and mine, are not the same
They turn at their own pace
To find their paths to what will be
It’s not a fucking race
So now I’ll struggle forwards
Try to follow my own lead
Through this thorny uncertainty
You cultured from your seed
I will take your judgement
And what you think you know
And even though it weighs me down?
I just won’t let it show
So get off your moral high horse
Try to see things from down here
Then before you make assumptions
Don’t just listen.. Try to hear
I won’t try to meet your challenge
Play your game and toe your line
Because although you think it’s the only way?
That’s your opinion ……… Not fucking mine

Downhill in all directions

Top Highest Waterfall

Nothing seems real
You forget how to feel
When you fall from the top of the World

No longer moved
By what was once a big deal
When you fall from the top of the World

It’s downhill all round
A long way to the ground
When you fall from the top of the World

Music has no soul
Just becomes an ordered sound
When you fall from the top of the World

Spirit seeking hope
Never finds any good
When you fall from the top of the World

A heart that once dreamed
Now splintered like wood
When you fall from the top of the World

No blessed relief
A happiness thief
When you fall from the top of the World

No spark left inside
Extinguished by grief
When you fall from the top of the World

Listen First, Speak Second

People are easy
If you try to understand them
That’s all most people need

To know that you listened
Heard what they said
And made the effort to pay heed

Most folks in general
Are reciprocal of charm
And of positive energy’s feed

Will give freely of themselves
Without a thought for gain
Transcending basic greed

These are the building blocks
The starting points we seek
To a fairer society they lead

One where children
Don’t have to starve
And our young don’t have to bleed

People are easy
And pretty much the same
regardless of colour, faith or creed

Keep this in mind
And we’re on the right path
Honour is a trusty steed

Opinions

conversation

Strength is finite
Patience wears thin
You wanna talk about opinions?
Where do I begin?
Opinions mean nothing
A concept and no more
You either put yours entertainingly
Or less, and be a bore
Just because I have one
That doesn’t match your view
Doesn’t mean yours doesn’t count
It doesn’t reflect on you
All it means is that you are free
To have your own belief
Live your life by your own rules
Be your own Big fucking Chief
So crack on with your own ways
Rejoice in your own sounds
You are free to have your opinion
It just won’t define my bounds

Deadwood

lake-superior-driftwood-picks-50-1
 
Drifting aimlessly
Taken by current or breeze
Bobbing along on the surface
Looking as though you’re at ease
You used to have a purpose
A function, a small part of a whole
You used to have direction
A use, you had your role
But look at you now
Adrift, thrown over the side
No longer required
A purpose that is now denied
Deadwood, taken by the tide
Swallowed by your own pride
Spat out by life
And half dead on the inside
Destined to drift
With everything you want just out of reach
Your only hope?
To be washed up on some far flung beach
Picked up from the shore to become a vision
Of what someone else can fashion
A second breath of life
To  once more be the object of someone’s passion
Drifting…..
Deadwood…
Drifting

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
